Mexican farmer builds pyramid after being ordered by alien

Raymundo Corona says he erected the 22 feet stone pyramid temple after being visited by an alien who was a tall man calling himself Herulayka, who had honey-coloured eyes, white hair and from a planet called Nefilin 20 times the size of Earth.

He told a local paper the alien said he was from the constellation of Orion.

He built the pyramid close to Monclova in the state of Coahila near the Mexico-US border, despite being warned he would be taken for a drunk or a drug addict if his story ever came out.

Pyramid

Mr Corona, 33 when he claims the alien visited him in 1984, said: “He told me to build the temple in the form of a pyramid.

“When I asked him why it had to be in the form of a pyramid, he said it was because it should be like my faith, something that winds and storms couldn’t move and was always pointing upwards.”

Recalling the moment he asked his mysterious visitor his name, Mr Corona told Mexican daily La Vanguardia that Herulayka had warned him: “Many people will laugh at you, defame you and say it was an act of insanity or something he did during a bender, it was an act of a madman or a drug addict.

“He told me he came from the constellation of Orion, from a place called Nefilin which is a place 20 times larger than Earth where people are similar to human beings.

“He was a tall man with honey-coloured eyes and white hair down to the ground. He was barefoot and wore a tunic tied with a rope.”

Mr Corona, whose wife was less than a day away from giving birth to his daughter at the time, says he had seen the alien in dreams before their meeting in person.

He said the extraterrestrial had claimed humans were destroying their own planet and should wake up to the fact they must look after it like a child because it gave them what they needed for their own survival.

Monclova is less than 600 miles from Roswell in New Mexico where a US Air Force surveillance balloon crashed in 1947, sparking rumours it was actually an alien spacecraft.

Mexico is said to be the most active country in the world for UFO and alien sightings.

Last summer video footage emerged allegedly showing an “alien humanoid” on the roof of a building in Nuevo Laredo, northern Mexico.

Viewers claimed the clip proved once and for all extra terrestrials are visiting Earth while others branded it a “pointless hoax.”

Dead Puerto Rico man is propped up in a chair at his own funeral

Now that’s resting in peace! Dead Puerto Rican man is propped up in a chair holding a cigarette with his eyes OPEN at his own funeral

  • Fernando de Jesus Diaz Beato, 26, was shot dead outside his home in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on March 3
  • His family chose to bid him farewell ‘just as he was in life’
  • A funeral home known for unconventional services sat Diaz Beato in a chair dressed in sports gear with his legs crossed and holding a cigarette
  • They also decided to keep his eyes open ‘as a surprise’ to the family 

    A Puerto Rican man who was repeatedly shot and killed earlier this month has been laid to rest ‘just as he was in life’ in an extremely unconventional funeral.

    Fernando de Jesus Diaz Beato, 26, was shot 15 times in the Villa Carolina neighborhood of San Juan on March 3, with police saying they have no leads on the crime.

    Describing him as a ‘happy and very active person’, the family decided against a coffin for the funeral service in favor of a chair, sitting Diaz Beato with his legs crossed, dressed in his favorite clothes and with a cigarette between his fingers.

    Finally, as a ‘surprise’, the funeral home chose to leave his eyes open.

    The body of San Juan was seated with his eyes open, and clothed in sports gear while holding a cigarette

    The funeral home admitted they 'surprised' the family by keeping Diaz Beato's eyes open
    They also dressed him in the hat and glasses that were his signature look

    ‘Everybody is really surprised because seeing him like that is like seeing him as if he were alive,’ one of Diaz Beato’s sisters said in a video obtained by Live Leak.

    Another sister, Ihizz Diaz Beato, said: ‘We decided to embalm him like this because he was a very happy person, very active and we want to remember him as he was.’

    The final effect was if Diaz Beato was sitting and staring at the family and friends who gathered at the funeral.

    Marin Funeral Home, in Rio Piedras, has become something of a pioneer of such services in San Juan.

    This is the ninth unconventional funeral they have done – but the first where the eyes of the deceased have been left open.

    'I think that this time was the most impressive reaction to any of the work we have done,' said Damaris Marin (right) the owner of Marin Funeral Home

    Damaris Marin, the owner of Marin Funeral Home, said they worked closely with the family to achieve the desired effect.

    ‘This time is different because he is seated with his legs crossed but, this is the first dead man in history with his eyes open,’ she said.

    ‘We have seen that the families wish to see the dead men just as they were when they were alive.

    ‘We gave [the family] a surprise by leaving the eyes of the dead man open.

    ‘I think that this time was the most impressive reaction to any of the work we have done.’

    The deceased loved to sit in the dining room of his house on a wooden chair and smoke, his family said

    While the result shocked the family, they said they were happy with how Diaz Beato looked.

    ‘We didn’t want to see him lying in the coffin,’ sister Ihizz Diaz Beato said.

    ‘We wanted something different. And also, we wanted him to be remembered by his friends and family the same way he was when he was alive.’

    Diaz Beato was shot outside his home on March 3. Police continue to investigate.
