The mystery surrounding the purported “non-human” mummified remains discovered in Peru took a perplexing turn when an analyst claimed that 30 percent of the creature's DNA does not belong to humans but instead originates from what he called an “unknown species.”
According to the Daily Star, controversial journalist and UFP enthusiast José Jaime Maussan worked with a team of scientists to perform a DNA analysis of the remains and found that almost a third of its genetic material is “not from any known species.”
The researchers did not disclose what the other 70 percent of the purported aliens' DNA consisted of, but Maussan argued that the analysis of the genetic material confirms the mummies are “definitely not human.”
“This is the first time extraterrestrial life has been presented in this manner," Maussan said during the hearing. "We have a clear example of non-human specimens unrelated to any known specimens on our planet.”
“These specimens do not belong to our terrestrial evolution,” he continued. “They were not creatures discovered by a UFO crash. Instead, they were found in diatom mines and later transformed into fossilized mummies,” according to a transcript of the hearing obtained by Daily Star.
Maussan said “the public has the right to know about non-human technology and beings.”
He added that this information would unite humanity rather than divide us, claiming “we are not alone in this universe; we should embrace this truth.”

According to the publication, in his recent testimony, anthropologist Roger Zuniga of San Luis Gonzaga National University in Ica, Peru, said the mummies were real and “there was absolutely no human intervention in the physical and biological formation of these beings."
Zuniga also presented a letter signed by 11 researchers from the university reaffirming the same conclusion, but they did clarify that they weren’t implying the bodies were definitively aliens.
Skepticism remains rampant about the claims since some point out the mummified figures resemble Steven Spielberg’s “ET,” The Post reported.
