Jonathan Reed's fake alien in 2001 in Seattle and Jaime Maussan's alien in 2023 unveiled in Mexico.
It has made national news, NPR, Associated Press and ABC news about Mexican researcher Jaime Maussan unveiling two alien bodies to the Mexican Congress.
But this isn't the first time Jaime Maussan has promoted an alien body.
The Northwest Museum of Legends and Lore in 2001 investigated a hoax that would later be promoted (and unfortunately still is) by UFO personality Jaime Maussan.
Called the Jonathan Reed "Alien in the Freezer" hoax, this story created national attention on the Art Bell radio show until it was investigated that the "DNA expert"
cited by Reed to legitimize his story was actually a mini-mart employee in West Seattle.
The museum just recently updated and re-linked our longstanding museum page of this hoax to call out such exhibits on their lack of verification and as potential scams.
We believe both countries, the US and Mexico are seriously trying to identify aerial phenomenon to improve security. And with hoaxes and scams in the arena, we feel this does increase the reluctance of witnesses to report national security sightings.
Please post or forward this past investigation in an effort to create consumer awareness or for those who may have questions about Jaime Maussan's history with promoting hoaxers.

Island UFO Incident Book
Now available, the first book from the Northwest Museum of Legend and Lore
“When I met Charlette LeFevre and Philip Lipson in 2007, I found them to be enthusiastic researchers who were energetically pursuing and impartially sifting through the facts about the Maury Island incident. This book is the result of their efforts. It presents new evidence and new analysis, and every reader will find it intriguing and informative.”
— Larry Haapanen, Ph.D, the last UFO investigator for the Fourth Air Force.
Amazon Reader Review, March 17, 2014 - Charlette LeFevre and Philip Lipson have done a great investigative job into one of the most bizarre, enigmatic, and strange UFO cases around. I have been personally investigating this case for over 40 years now and was very surprised to find information and photographs in their book that I have never seen before. Whatever this classic 1947 case really represents; either a real UFO event, some kind of coverup using UFOs as a foil, or a downright hoax, ... do not pick up the investigation trail yourself without reading this book and adding it to your UFO research library!

Words from the Ghost Communication Box
The Ghost Communication Box is a voice chip programmed with the 71 phoenetics of the human voice activated by EMF fields. The chip, from Digitaldowsing.com was placed in this clock box for ease of operation. The museum has had the box for nine years and can say the words heard from the box appear to be random.

The solution? Cover with
Clear nail polish!
Why does it work? It is believed the nail polish seals off air from the wart in much the same way that duct tape is said to work.
Clear nail polish is also less noticable than tape or the black skin that results from freezing warts.
Results are reported to be seen the next day.
