Varginha UFO incident

Date: January 20, 1996
Location: Varginha, Brazil

In 1996 in Varginha, Brazil, during the course of several weeks at least two and perhaps as many as six alien creatures were captured or killed and turned over to American authorities, and a UFO crashed. Eyewitnesses described the creatures as humanoid and 3 to 4 feet tall. They had dark brown, hairless skin, big triangular heads with three short “horns” on top, and huge red eyes that were vertically oval.

The UFO was the size of a school bus, a submarine-like shape, leaving the white smoke behind.

“It was floating and slowly losing altitude. It looked like a washing machine struggling, fighting to keep its altitude”. The side of it was completely torn and it had white smoke coming out. It wasn’t black smoke like from a fire. At the time “I thought it was like an aircraft in trouble, an airplane”.

When the police arrived, they immediately opened fire on the aliens, and one of them got injured. Then, the injured alien was taken to the local hospital, about 1.5 kilometers from Varginha. According to the hospital staff, an entire wing of the hospital was closed, and the hospital itself was literally packed with military personnel in full ammunition. Doctors tried to save the creature, but it died. Its death was recorded on January 22, 1996. More than a dozen specialists, including genetics, took part in the subsequent autopsy. They found out that the alien had a black tongue, the absence of genitals, and a navel. After the autopsy, the dead alien was placed in a wooden coffin, the lid of which was secured with screws.


On January 20, 1996, the incident that has since become known as ‘Brazil’s Roswell’ began when three young women in Varginha, a major metropolitan city in southeastern Brazil, reported seeing an alien being described as having red eyes, a large head with “spots like veins on the skin” and an unsteady bipedal gait that made them think it was injured or sick. This was followed by more reports of aliens, UFO sightings, military presence, witnesses who allegedly filmed aliens being removed from the area, and one young policeman who claimed to have touched one of the extraterrestrials and was infected with a mysterious disease which soon killed him.

“One of the plainclothes officers, apparently identified as Marco Chereze, “touched the creature with his bare hands” during his apprehension. Within days, he became seriously ill and was hospitalized with loss of use of all of his limbs. He deteriorated rapidly, showing no response to any treatment. Several people close to him watched as a “rash” overtook his body, apparently lowering his immune system and ultimately leading to his death at the local hospital on February 15, 1996. His partner never received final documents about the mysterious illness and medical records were likely confiscated.”

“The family of Marco Eli Chereze managed to have an inquiry opened by the local police precinct in order to establish eventual medical responsibilities for his death. At that time, searches seemed to be doomed to failure, but they are still under way at the present time. The parents did that because, a few days after January 20, a small tumor, similar to a furuncle, appeared under one of the armpits of Chereze. That tumor, according to what was learned at the time, would have been rapidly extracted by the doctor in charge, at the very premises where he was serving. We know today that nothing like happened. But what most drew the attention of the boy’s family was the lack of information about his health condition and, later, about his tragic death. Even months after his burial, nobody knew exactly the cause of his death.”

While collecting data and witness accounts for a film, James Fox interviewed the sister of Marco Chereze, the police officer who was believed to have been infected after touching an alien. One of the theories Fox proposed at the time was that the aliens were ammonia-based beings rather than carbon-based because so many witnesses remembered the smell of ammonia around the crash site and in the town where the aliens were seen. He believed derivatives of the ammonia molecule – which are extremely toxic and easily absorbed through the skin, gut and respiratory tract – could have infected and eventually killed Marco Chereze, whose cause of death was given as an unknown infection.

Three young witnesses – two sisters aged 14 and 16, and a 21-year-old friend – told their mother what they believed they saw … a tiny alien with big red eyes, a thin body and V-shaped feet crouching by a wall. As their story spread, so did another that a strange, cigar-shaped object about the size of a school bus slowly fell from the sky and crashed in a field in Varginha.  The many reports varied, with some witnesses claiming they saw wreckage of a spaceship, others saying they saw military vehicles arrive quickly, cordon off the area and descend on the wreckage. There were reports of soldiers removing what were described as ‘aliens’ from the wreck and taking them away, along with the wreckage. Some said all of this was recorded on video and photographs – which have never been revealed – while other suggested they were told to keep quiet. Other than the story of the three girls, the most interesting – and tragic – eyewitness account was that of the young police officer who touched one of the alleged aliens who had avoided being taken away by the military.

The US Air Force confiscates the alien bodies and takes them to an unknown location. A vast cover-up by the Brazilian military, enforced with death threats, lasts for 26 years.
