A strange story about the Great Pyramid of Giza appeared in the March 2000 issue of the Egyptian magazine Rose El-Yussuf.
According to the article, in 1988, French Egyptologist Louis Caparat,
“Discovered a secret room in the Great Pyramid of Cheops (his Greek name. The pharaoh’s true name was Khufu – J.T.).”
The alien humanoid,
“Was found in a crystalline transparent case. At first the alien appeared to be hibernating,” or in a state of suspended animation.
Caparat reportedly “also found a papyrus text” which described Pharaoh Khufu meeting with the alien, who told him that someday his space-traveling species would arrive from the stars.
The alien supposedly suggested the design of the pyramid and persuaded the Egyptians to build it as his resting place.
“Caparat sent a message to a colleague in Spain, Francisco de Braga, a biologist, inviting him to come to Egypt” to take blood, cell, tissue and DNA samples from the dead alien.
But when Dr. de Braga arrived in Cairo, he was detained by the Egyptian Ministry of State Security and put on a plane back to Madrid.
According to Rose El-Yussuf, the dead alien was taken to a laboratory at an undisclosed location by Egyptian military intelligence.

Take this story with a grain of salt, readers.
Mysterious dead bodies have been turning up in the Great Pyramid since Abdullah Al-Mamun first broke into the structure way back in 813 A.D. Abdullah, who was the son of the famous caliph, Haroun Al-Raschid, hired a crew of Egyptians who laboriously bored a hole right through the Pyramid’s wall.
According to author Peter Tompkins,
“Some Arabian authors have reported that Al-Mamun found in the sarcophagus a stone statue in the shape of a man. They say that within the statue lay a body wearing a breastplate of gold set with precious stones, an invaluable sword on his chest, and a carbuncle ruby on his head the size of an egg, which shone as with the light of day.”
See Secrets of the Great Pyramid by Peter Tompkins, Harper and Row, New York, N.Y., 1971, page 15.
On the other hand, there have been a lot of strange goings-on at the Great Pyramid since 1996, including secret UNESCO teams visiting, unmarked military vehicles and black helicopters seen at Giza, and the recent round of heavy construction.. It’s anyone’s guess what is really going on out there.
