Despite an acute lack of details, this is one of the most interesting cases involving alien bodies.
The story begins in 1996, when Russian police officers found the body of a miniature creature in the town of Kyshtym, in the Chelyabinsk region.

Due to its small size and unearthly appearance, media outlets soon began calling it the Kyshtym alien. The local medical examiner who autopsied the body determined it was neither human nor animal. He believed it was a previously undiscovered life form.
Dr. Stanoslav Samoshkin was in charge of the morbid anatomy department at the local hospital when authorities brought the alien body for analysis. After a thorough examination, he concluded:
“The creature was not by any means a human being. The human skull consists of six bones. The skull of that creature was made up of 4 bones. There were other differences in the skeleton structure. Those anomalies didn’t look like any congenital malformations known to date.
”Measuring nearly 10 inches in length, the mummified body had an enlarged and misshapen head. Its large eye sockets occupied most of its face.
When it was alive, the Kystym alien must have looked quite different from us humans. Interestingly enough, it closely resembles Ata, another enigmatic mummified body discovered in the Atacama Desert in 2003.
International media dubbed it the ‘Uralian Alien’ and the world was hungry for details. Stories soon began popping up.
This isn’t the only story about how the body was found. Other sources say Aleshenka had been found in the possession of Vladimir Nurtdinov, a local man suspected of stealing electrical wire.
When his home was raided, he unwillingly gave police officers the small mummy wrapped in red cloth but never said where he got it.
Even if its origins were unknown, the Kyshtym alien was a fascinating discovery. Ufologist and paranormal researcher Vadim Chernobrov flew in from Moscow to examine the body and concluded it was ‘sensational.’ Preliminary genetic analysis showed that it was definitely not human:
Tracing and verifying the validity of these claims is difficult and would only prove they are embellishments later added to the story.
But the fact of the matter is twenty years ago, somebody found the mummified remains of a creature from another world. If it were to turn up today, ufologists would have a field day.
