New Setback In Chilean Humanoid Investigation

The organization known as CIO (Corporaci=F3n para la Investigaci=F3n
OVNI, or Corporation for the Investigation of UFOs - ed), which
was recently responsible for the investigation of the tiny
creature discovered in Concepcion, Chile, has decided to
withdraw from the case. The announcement was made in light of
recent requests from the family members and owners of the
alleged creature also known as 'TOY'. The family is reportedly
'under pressure' to stop the investigation from going any

SANTIAGO, NOVEMBER 8, 2002. Through an official statement, the
CIO organization announced the decision not to proceed with the
investigations regarding the alleged creature found near
Concepcion, Chile by family members from Santiago. The
information provided by CIO points out the following:

On November fifth of  2002, during a meeting of directors, an
unanimous decision was reached to retire from the investigation
of the TOY case, a phenomenon broadly covered by the news media.

This decision is based fundamentally because of pressures upon
the family members and even recently, on our own director. Given
these unfavorable circumstances, the required investigation of
this particular case cannot proceed.

We want to express our most sincere thanks to Veterinarian Enzo
Bossco and his team, for their unconditional participation and
support for CIO in Chile, clearly demonstrating their scientific
interest in the case.

We leave the case up to the family members and owners of TOY,
under their absolute freewill, to make the final decision. We
also want to let them know that there is absolutely no
commitment nor pressure from us to force them to make a decision
regarding this case. We want to express our gratitude for their
trust and for letting us manage the initial steps of the

We apologize to all those who followed this case and somehow put
their trust in us, hoping to hear about the final results. We
truly hope you understand the reasons for our decision.

Enrique Sepulveda Sariego
CIO Chile
