Aborted fetus or Mystery Alien?

Scientists have revealed the origins of a mysterious skeleton long thought to have been extra-terrestrial.

After five years of examination, a research team unravelled the genetic make-up of the bizarre specimen found in the Atacama Desert in 2003, and nicknamed "Ata".

Led by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco and Stanford University, forensic analysis of the remains revealed they undoubtedly belonged to a human, albeit one with severe and previously unknown genetic mutations.

The skeleton, which was discovered in a leather pouch behind an abandoned church and has been dated approximately to the 1970s, has been the subject of intense speculation among online alien enthusiasts ever since it was revealed to the world.

Generally, just a SPAM KILLER. You are on your own in this forum. My personal mission here is done.

BUT when necessary, by way of ridicule and truth revelation we shalt do war.

It was probably from the French nuclear testing

She was a 15 week old fetus buried in a shoe box, wrapped in a white cloth and buried close to an abandoned church in the pampa. Here's another view point: https://www.etilmercurio.com/em/the-girl-from-la-noria/

An analysis by a leading forensic anthropologist showed nothing particularly unusual about her that can't be explained by delivery and taphonomy. One of the best pieces written is here: http://www.plataformacientifica.cl/la-h ... zw.twitter
