The author and paranormal researcher died on Monday evening at the age of 67 after a battle with cancer.
Author of several books including the novels That Prosser Kid and Mismatch, Pye was a keen proponent of Bigfoot and other paranormal topics, making numerous television appearances over the years on The National Geographic Channel, Animal Planet, The Learning Channel and others.

He was perhaps best known however for his extensive research and promotion of the enigmatic Starchild skull, an abnormally shaped human-like skull that he believed was evidence of the hybridization of humans with an advanced extraterrestrial race.

The skull was originally discovered in a mine southwest of Chihuahua, Mexico in around 1930 and was later obtained by Pye from a couple in El Paso, Texas. He spent years researching and promoting the find, having taken it to numerous experts in an effort to get to the bottom of the mystery.

While DNA testing seemed to suggest that the skull was in fact human, Pye actively maintained his hybridization theory right up until he was forced to retire from work due to his cancer diagnosis earlier this year.

Regardless of the skull's true origins, Pye will always be remembered for his passion, for his devotion to finding the truth and for his unending commitment to bringing some of the world's most intriguing mysteries to audiences all over the world.

The DNA was wholly human? What a shame. Rest peacefully, Mr. Pye. Any man's death diminishes me, as John Donne said.

RIP Lloyd -------- Condolonces You represented a strong case backed with evidence including dna. It is a shame that you were effectively prevented from acquiring the nuclear testing you so desparately wanted & needed.

It is a shame that you were effectively prevented from acquiring the nuclear testing you so desparately wanted & needed. It's a shame he's died, but he really, really didn't. Time and again the DNA showed the skull to be of human lineage. I wish he'd focused on something with more returns for the effort he put into it.

There was a lot more than just the skull thing. All sorts of interesting theories about the universe, and where life originated from, and all sorts of things. None of which might necessarily have been true, but they certainly made some entertaining reading, and like I said, for that reason, I'll miss him.

Well the gap left by him will no doubt soon be filled by others

"Lloyd Anthony Pye, an American author and paranormal researcher, has died after a bout with lymphoma cancer. He was best known for his promotion of the Starchild skull, a deformed specimen, which he claims is remains of an alien-human hybrid. DNA tests have shown it is human (and both parents were human) suffering probably from congenital hydrocephalus" http://doubtfulnews....-died/#comments This is actually not true that the DNA showed that both the parents were human.

Here is the link for the proof that at the end, the truth from the complete non framented mDNA showed the proof, that what he suspected was in fact true. Like it or not. Not I suppose, because it was in fact not true at all. Have you not noticed that with each and every test, they are using parameters for DNA and genetic material that is readily available on Earth, likely human DNA? You gotta ask yourself - where did that pesky Y chromosome come from?
