Melanie Young, who possesses the Starchild Skull received the DNA test results after an exhaustive 18 year process since 1999, to identify what was thought to be a 900-year-old extraterrestrial or hybrid skull. The results showed that the skull was in fact of a 100% human, five-year old male and that the dating of the skull was actually 500 years old. In 1999, only a few labs were doing ancient DNA work and the cost for a complete analyse was beyond what anyone could afford. Young credited investigator Chase Kloetzke with connecting her to the proper resources to help determine the anomalous skull's true origins. Its unusual appearance was due to 14 major abnormalities, and up to 20 minor deficiencies. In fact, the most amazing thing is how the child could have lived up to five years old with the conditions he suffered. After comparing the skull side-by-side with other skulls and analyzing previous DNA tests, Young was satisfied with the results of it being 100% human, and does not plan to pursue the project any further.
