Jury Still Out on Lloyd Pye's Starchild Skull

A Houma native is on a mission to determine whether an ancient skull is of earthly origin.
The so-called “Starchild skull” is a curiously shaped skull that its curator, paranormal researcher and author Lloyd Pye, has been studying for extraterrestrial descent since it was entrusted to him 14 years ago.

Pye said he believes using a new state-of-the-art tool, the Illumina Genome Sequencer, to retrace the ancient DNA can provide a definitive conclusion about the skull’s origin. The price tag for such a test, however, is in the millions of dollars.
Pye, 66, who lives in Florida, claims the skull is roughly 900 years old and was discovered in the 1930s in a Mexican mineshaft. It has garnered a reputation in the paranormal community as the offspring of an extraterrestrial or a genetic mutation.
The skull’s physical and genetic irregularities, Pye says, simply contradict too many traits of a human skull, even those affected by medical syndromes such as hydrocephaly or Progeria, which can cause heads to be misshapen.
A DNA test was carried out in 1999 at a forensic teaching laboratory by a group of student geneticists who concluded the Starchild is a human male.
Pye said 1999 was the “Stone Age” for genetic testing and the students badly botched the job.
In 2011, Pye said a new round of DNA testing indicated the Starchild is not the human male from the 1999 test.
Additionally, Pye’s website,, lists names of other medical professionals who allege that the jury is still out on the Starchild case.
