A decade has passed since a mummified, 6-inch long skeleton was found in the Atacama Desert in Chile. Not until now has the skeleton, featuring a miniaturized body and an alien like skull, finally undergone the proper scrutiny of comprehensive laboratory testing and DNA analysis. Lab results indicate that the skeleton is indeed of human origin, and even more astonishing one of a child aged 6-8. The tiny skeleton has 10 ribs instead of the usual 12, and severe skeletal and facial anomolies. One doctor noted that the specimen’s bone deformities suggest a form of dwarfism, though “there is no known form of dwarfism that accounts for all of the anomalies seen in this specimen.”
During what time period did this miniature person inhabit our planet? How was a child of such minuscule proportions able to maintain life for so many years? Needless to say, we are left with far more questions than we have answers.
