EXCLUSIVE: Alien hunters hoping to prove the Nazca tombs contained extraterrestrials have been left shocked after tests on the mummified remains found they contained DNA from living beings.

Nazca Tomb: The ‘alien’ remains were found to have 100 percent human DNA.
However, in a blow to people hoping for proof of alien visitations of Earth, the samples were concluded to be a 100 percent match to human DNA.
Both the hand and brain tissue were found to come from a male homo sapien, according to a report from Paleo DNA laboratory at Lakehead University, Ontario, Canada, now available online.
It said: “The evidence suggests the source of DNA from the biological material from the cranial brain and the bone extracted from the hand belongs to homo sapiens (humans).”
Conspiracy theory website Gaia.com ran a series of videos which claimed the bodies had been found in a tomb near the Nazca Lines in southern Peru, and it was thought they could be a newly undiscovered species or even alien.
The congress brings together world experts in mummies and skeletons in a new location each year.
Under the heading ‘The Fraud of Extraterrestrial Mummies’, translated from Spanish, the congress said it believed real human mummified remains had been mutated and re-arranged to create bogus alien-looking creatures.
Commenting on the DNA results, British UFO investigator Nigel Watson said: “It shows it has a male human skull and hands. Another fake bites the dust.”
However, Gaia.com has since released a further video suggesting it could be a being closely related to humans and still from outer space.
The evidence suggests the source of DNA from the biological material from the cranial brain and the bone extracted from the hand belongs to homo sapiens (humans).”
Dr Konstantin Korotkov, who is working with Gaia.com on the project, and claims to have previously photographed a soul leaving a human body, suggested in the video they may only be related to human DNA.
He said: “From the first DNA analysis, it was proven it’s not chimpanzee, it’s not monkey, but it’s human-like DNA.
“Because we know that now we have three types of human like creatures. It is Neanderthals, Cro-Magnon like ourselves, and Denisovan.
“Now, at next level, they have to make much more detailed analysis, and much more complicated analysis, so they will create a library of genes, and then they will be able to compare it with database of human subjects.
“Then, we’ll see whether it is exactly human like, or it is little bit different.”
The team said early DNA results of another mummy, named “Maria”, show she is female, and that carbon dating samples from the body matched the hand making manipulation of body parts unlikely.
Mexican journalist Jaime Maussan, who is also working with Gaia.com, said they were now testing smaller reptilian looking bodies.
He said: “They are very very similar. It is like a reptile skin, a snake skin.
“It proves we have two types of beings.
“If we can prove they are real we would have six bodies – enough evidence to say this case is real.”
