A three-fingered mummified body has been reportedly found in Nazca, Peru, with video of the purported body appearing on YouTube. However, researchers have expressed doubt about the discovery, with some calling it a “hoax.”
According to website Gaia, the body, which stands 5’6″ tall and appears to look like a human, has three long fingers, an elongated skull and does not have ears or a nose. In a Gaia YouTube video, Professor Konstantin Korotkov of Saint Petersburg University in Russia described the body as belonging to “another creature, another humanoid.”
“We’re going to let you know if it’s human, if it’s non-human,” said a Gaia representative, in the video.
Jaime Maussan, an investigative journalist from Mexico, introduced the discovery to Gaia filmmakers, who then investigated it further with a larger team.
Doubts about the credibility of the body popped up immediately. “Respect my opinion, this is FAKE!,” wrote one commenter on the YouTube video. “Reported to the MIB,” quipped another, referring the famous sci-fi comedy movie “Men in Black.”
In an interview with The Express, British UFO author Nigel Watson, described the body as “a plaster cast model,” dubbing it “110 perfect fake.”
