JANUARY 1974, ANDES MOUNTAINS, PERU, PEOPLE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A computer video file appeared anonymously on the Internet on 2007, teases about claims that an UFO crashed in the Peruvian Andes moutains in January 1974 in front of many witnesses; of which none is shown, named or acceptably quoted.

The video briefly shows an old wooden trunk in a shack containing what resembles a naked and degraded humanoid corpse which is claimed to have been recovered by the locals on the spot of UFO crash before the military silenced the incident (see images in this file).

The video, lacking any other information, promises revelations to come about this.

Narratives:

[Ref. in1:] ON THE INTERNET:

A computer video file in Windows Media format, appeared on the Internet, end of 2007, is headlined in the first scene "The Andes Humanoid."

The next scene displays the text "In January of 1974, an unidentified flying object (UFO) fell in the Andean Mountains of Peru. Many people witnessed what happened."

The next scene shows a part of the face of a man saying "We saw it fall from the sky."

Then, a text says "The military authorities surrounded the zone, erased the tracks, and denied what had happened."

The next scene shows a part of the face of the same man now saying "It was like a huge metallic object."

This is followed by a text saying "But there were some who were before them, who took something very valuable. A Humanoid."

A very short sequence then shows what is apparently a body, in a greenish light as filmed in "nightvision" (infrared) mode:

The next text screen announce that "The year 2007, the secret is exposed. We went searching for those who were there."

A few short sequences show a mountain road, then a mountain dirt track, then some shack:

The next text screen says: "Finally, we got what we were looking for.

Three unrecognizable people filmed from behind near the shack are partly shown, one appearing "local" and saying "Let's go together and see it."

Screenshot

The camera enters the shack, a comment says "You are about to see what have been hidden [sic] for many years."

The camera goes to film a wooden box, a hand opens the cover:

There is a "creature" in the box, first shown in a very brief traveling, then with a close up on the face:

The alleged "Humanoid" is shown overall during 10 seconds only. No clothing or artefacts appear. The final text screen says: "Very soon, you will see the complete report with exclusive images. Be ready."

The video file name is "Alien_body_kept_in_Peru_for_33_years.wmv". The length of the video file is 1 minutes 25 seconds. The resolution is low, 320*240 pixels, it is heavily compressed.

As of November 12, 2007, is can be seen at http://video.google.co.uk/videoplay?docid=-5633270208214360641&pr=goog-sl It seems to have appeared from the blog "http://journals.aol.co.uk/hgn53k/UFOSightingsDevonEngland/" where numerous "fringe" UFO stuff (Niburu, nazi saucers...) is published.

Points to consider:

The matter shows many hallmarks of the usual hoaxes.
