Strange “Starchild” Skull Of Mexico


By James Donahue


Of all the skeletal remains dug up around the earth in recent years, the one discovered by a young girl in a Mexican cave about 80 years ago is probably among the strangest.


While it is the skull of a young humanoid, it is clearly not human, says Lloyd Pye, the man who took on the task of introducing the skull to the world. Pye is a researcher for an organization known as the Starchild Research Project and has written a book about the discovery.


Since acquiring the skull in 1999, Pye has had it examined by scientists in both the United States and London. The exams included bone chemistries, X-rays and even DNA tests. Pye says he reached the conclusion that the skull, estimated to be about 900 years old, is not of this world.


He refers to it as a “starchild” because it fits no known pattern of human morphology.


“There is nothing to account for it, because we’ve been through every book that we can find about human deformities and there’s nothing like it,” Pye said. He said after extensive testing, all reasonable theories have been ruled out.


Although it is a skull of a child he said it portrays a larger than normal brain cavity, eye sockets located close together and low in the face, a crease across the top of the skull, and an unusually low bone density overall. The jaw bone is missing.


A composite drawing of the face, based on the shape of the skull, appears strangely familiar. It is an image we have all seen in books and drawings done by alleged alien abductees. It is the face of the entity that we commonly call the Grey.


What is the story behind the skull?


Pye says that a young girl in Mexico was exploring a complex of caves near her home and discovered a female human skeleton lying on a cave floor. There was a small skeletal hand sticking out of the dirt and grasping the arm.


When she dug, the girl found a second skeleton of a misshapen child. She said the skeleton, including the skull, was entirely misshapen. She took the odd skull home with her and apparently kept it among her possessions for years before telling anyone about it.


Once she did reveal her find, Pye said she could not recall just where it was found. A search of the caves failed to turn up any evidence of the rest of the skeletal remains.


Based on the girl’s story, Pye has developed a theory that the dead woman was either the biological parent, or assigned caretaker to the child, and that they both perished at about the same time. The mother seems to have outlived the child, and had time to bury the remains before either dying, or possibly committing suicide.


Pye said stories of star children are commonly told among ancient cultures. The stories, shared all over the world, say a being from the heavens comes to the earth and impregnates a tribal woman that is often infertile. The village then raises the child until a ship returns several years later to carry the child away.


The skull may be the first evidence found in ancient artifacts that the starchild story has any validity.


In spite of the fact that Pye has evidence in hand, and documented scientific proof that the skull is genuine, he is having difficulty getting the scientific community to accept his story.


The reason may be simple. If Pye is right, the story could have startling implications that would shake the very foundations of world religious belief systems.


It also might support the belief by a growing number of humans that we have had alien contact, and that aliens are even abducting humans for purposes of interbreeding.
