Chile: Mourning a Ufologist

Dear readers --

Chilean UFO broadcaster and journalist Patricio Varela Silva died yesterday afternoon at the intensive care unit of Chile's Universidad Catolica.

For over 40 years, Mr. Varela was the host of "Mundo Espacial", a radio program that discussed UFO and paranormal subjects. INEXPLICATA readers will remember Mr. Varela's reports on the Chilean Chupacabras manifestations in the year 2000.

The research of the unknown has lost another champion, and the Institute of Hispanic Ufology extends its deepest sympathy to the Varela family and to the Chilean UFO research community as well.
