The Dutch magazine Het Leven had published the following images with a clear announcement that a creature half-man half-monkey was indeed discovered in the Amazon jungle.
But now, 75 years since the story emerged, researchers say that everything was just a well done fake. A detailed analysis reveals that the apeman in the photos was freshly shaved, had a hairdo and his lips feature a prosthetic as well as traces of makeup.
It seems that the man, born with some malformations, was used as an “actor” in a sick movie aimed to cause global panic.
Apparently it worked at the time. More people worldwide have announced that they saw shocking scenes with such people. A Swiss billionaire who was on a expedition to Brazil even boasted that he caught a monkeyman and killed him, but could not that his body to civilization to prove his existence.
