Jaime Maussan is a leading journalist in covering the phenomenon of UFO sightings in Mexico and around the world. During his hour-long presentation at the Open Minds 23rd International UFO Convention, the audience was spellbound by audio and video footage presented by Mr. Maussan, including a portion described as “The Hum” which are ominous sounds described by eyewitnesses as accompanying sightings and being emitted from the UFOs.
I stumbled upon an interesting presentation from the 2013 UFO Congress. I'm aware many folks here see Jaime Maussan as a hoaxer. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
A taxidermist stuffed a squirrel monkey sans ears. Then Maussan made some extraordinary claims about it, and talked about DNA testing, etc.
I dont think he is a hoaxer but he encourages hoaxes buy offering money to anyone who can produce something that looks like aUFO so he can put it on his weekly show about UFO's. He doesn't care if something is real or not , just if it can make him money and more famous.
That was definitely a hoax, and Maussan was up to his eyeballs in it.
More importantly, Urso Ruíz apparently confessed in an Internet forum he indeed hoaxed the creature, which is indeed just a squirrel-monkey:
“It’s just the corpse of a skinned squirrel-monkey. I took its ears out and involved it with all the hair and fluids of all animals I could find, then I dried it. All samples they take of it will come out as being of different animals.”
He goes on:
“Mr Mario quickly sold it to Maussán for 300.000 pesos [U$23,000], as you can see after four years they still can’t realize it’s a hoax.”
And tries to defend himself:
“I must say I didn’t claim it was real. That was Maussán who claimed it was real. He believed it. All the show was a hoax that got out of control,
Sifting through the bs does get exhausting, so I understand.
