DEMONIC skulls allegedly found near a Nazi briefcase in a remote mountain range have raised the shocking prospect the Third Reich had links with ALIENS.
The skulls were reportedly discovered by a team of explorers led by scientist Vladimir Melikov in a cave on Mount Bolshoi Tjach, Russia.
Despite being found two years ago, news of it has only gone global after a separate find in woods nearby of a Nazi briefcase and German full-colour map of the Adygea region made in 1941.
According to reports the briefcase, picked up by a local hermit, had the emblem of the Ahnenerbe – the most secretive Nazi institute founded by Heinrich Himmler in 1935 to find evidence that the Aryan race had once ruled the entire globe.
But it soon branched into occultism, paranormal research, pseudoscience and the study of UFOs and weapons development due to Himmler’s obsession with such topics.
The strange appearance of the skulls has led to speculation the Nazis could have made contact with aliens or even summoned demons in the remote area and these were the remains.
Conspiracy websites have connected the mysterious skulls with the occultism of the SS Ahnenerbe institution and concluded the skulls could be those of dead demons or even aliens
Mr Melikov was reported as saying the creature was “unlike anything known to man”.
He said “among the most mysterious features of the skulls is the absence of cranial vault and jaws”, while “the eye sockets were unusually large having facial features resembling humans”.
He added: “Even when compared with the skull of a bear, it is hard to think that you do not have in your hands the remains of an alien creature.”
Some have speculated the “discoveries” are all part of an elaborate hoax, with suggestions the facial features could have been hollowed out of large animals’ pelvic bones.
Paleontologists in Moscow, when shown pictures of the skulls, reportedly dismissed them as submerged skeleton heads that “could have been exposed to sand for long periods of time” – and which “could have altered their shape”.
