This was approximately 75-years ago. Since then the skull has had several owners and now Lloyd Pye is trying to discover the original origin of the skull, nick named: the Starchild Skull.
"Chapter Two begins with explaining "Provenance" - establishing the origin of an object and a chain of custody of that object. Lloyd Pye claims that the Starchild skull could be the most important relic in world history, because it could well answer the question: Are we alone in the universe?"
As Pye points out: the Starchild Skull is unlike or doesn't resemble any other of the 10,000,000,000 (ten billion) humans who have lived on earth! He speculates that a native woman may have killed the Starchild or it may have died of natural causes. All we know from the story of Pelo that the woman's body was buried beside that of the child. We also know that although healed, the woman had suffered a serious head injury.

And then he met Dr. Ken Pye, who was a forensic expert who also owned his own laboratory. Although they shared the same last name they were not related. Lloyd was at the point in his investigation that he needed many expensive laboratory experiments conducted to confirm or deny conclusively the origin of the Starchild! Lloyd is not a wealthy man and has had to rely on funding from a variety of sources including his website membership list and a half-dozen or so patrons to pay for scientific testing, travel and living expenses. It was during this initial meeting with Dr. Pye, over lunch, that he handed the doctor a sterolithographic reproduction of the Starchild plus the maxilla half. The doctor after carefully examining what he had been given looked up and said, "I have to agree with Jean. I think you may have something completely unique here. I'd certainly like to know what it is."
Dr. Pye agreed to conduct several tests when he had the time and to get back to touch with Lloyd. Sometime later Lloyd and a colleague met Dr. Pye, who stunned them with the question, "Gentlemen, I wish I knew how to break this to you gently, but...I think you've been hoaxed." Dr. Pye stated that his tests had proven that the Starchild was not 900 years old, but was in fact the skull from a recent death. Lloyd was devastated, but Grant a friend of his suggested that the skull was recent but not from modern times but rather from the Roswell crash - some fifty years earlier.
