Mexican Ufologist Jaime Maussan presented the alleged “extraterrestrial” skeletons before the Mexican Congress, causing a huge controversy.
The skeletons, about 60 centimeters long, sparked controversy and suspicions of a hoax.
Maussan claimed that the bodies were found in Peru and are not part of terrestrial evolution.
Scientists and academics discredited the findings and considered them another attempt by Maussan to prove the existence of extraterrestrials.
Doctors in Mexico conducted X-ray and computed tomography tests on the bodies.
The results showed that the bodies had not been assembled or manipulated, as reported by The Telegraph.
José de Jesús Zalce Benítez, the director of the Institute of Health Sciences Research of the Navy Secretariat, which conducted the tests, said they showed that the bodies had not been assembled or manipulated.
This contradicts previous suggestions that the bodies had been assembled using animal or human bones, although it is unlikely to quell criticism of Maussan due to his relationship with Mr. Benítez.
Both appeared together in the Mexican Congress to testify to their findings.
“(They belong) to a single skeleton that has not been joined to other pieces,” he said.
Despite this, criticism of Maussan persisted due to his relationship with the researchers.
The bodies were said to have characteristics resembling fictional representations of extraterrestrials.
Some scholars and archaeologists suggested that the remains could be mummified human bodies.
The Peruvian government initiated an investigation into how the bodies left the country, and Maussan insisted on his innocence and that he had done nothing illegal.
