I wanted to bring back a discussion from an earlier thread, on Gil Perez, the teleporter man. I've read a lot on this case and still can't seem to
reach a satisfying conclusion.
Gil Perez – The Teleporter Man
The case of Gil Perez is interesting and is a story which you could use as a late at night scary tale to tell, if you put a few extra spins on it. Gil
Perez was a Spanish soldier who was serving with the Filipino Guard in Manilla. The story goes that he mysteriously appeared in Mexico City which is
more than 9, 000 nautical miles away. He was still wearing the uniform of the Palacio Del Gobernador from the Philippines. According to Perez, he had
no idea how he got there. This may sound like a bland story at first, but the fascination is in the detail.
Perez told officials in Mexico that the Governor of the Philippines, Dasmarinas was killed by the Chinese while he was on sentry duty. When quizzed on
how exactly he got to Mexico City he claimed that he was tired and decided to rest on the wall, upon opening his eyes he was in a different place and
did not know how get there, supposedly he did not believe the guards when they first told him that he was all the way in Mexico. The reason why he did
not believe it initially was because he was adamant that he received military orders on the morning of October 23 in Manilla... while it was now in
the evening of the 24th all the way in Mexico City. Upon being questioned by the Church all he could say was that he traveled that large distance
“in less time than it takes a cock to crow”. When news came from Philippines which confirmed Perez’s story about the Philippine Governor
as well as other elements of his story, the authorities were bewildered. One of the passengers on the messenger ship swore that he saw Perez in
Manilla on the 23rd.

It's a really fascinating case and I wonder what you guys have to say about it. Is there any plausible way to denounce what happened here?
