Lloyd A. Pye, Jr. was born in south Louisiana on September 7, 1946. He walked this Earth for 67 years before passing away in the home of his family in Destin, Florida on December 9, 2013. Lloyd was a most beloved son, brother, and uncle, and he is missed by all who knew him and were inspired by his work.
Lloyd overcame many obstacles in his life, beginning from his first breath. There were complications at his birth, and his parents were given the dire news that, if he lived, he would likely be a brain damaged child and that they should prepare for his early demise. He proved the doctor’s prediction wrong when he survived and proceeded to be a healthy child full of curiosity with a thirst for learning.
He remembered everything he read and learned, and relished investigating the how, what, when, and where of his latest research project. He not only developed a vast and varied treasure trove of knowledge that served him well his entire life, he developed a deep love of sports. He became an outstanding sportsman, excelling in athletics as well as team sports. He was a member of the local Amite Warrior State Championship Football team in 1964, and competed in pole vault at the State level. He earned a College Football scholarship and attended Tulane University in New Orleans, graduating in 1968 with a degree in Psychology.
He then joined the U.S. Army and became a Military Intelligence agent. After his military duties, Lloyd began a career in writing. His first book was largely based on his experience of College football, and was published to rave reviews. He wrote and published several books, as well as becoming a member of the Screen Writers Guild writing for several television programs and films.
Lloyd had always been deeply intrigued with Hominoids including bigfoot, sasquatch, abominable snowman, and the yeti. His constant study and research of these mysterious creatures led him to the conclusion that they do exist, and that they are most likely Neanderthals and other pre-humans that have managed to survive after the rest of their species died out.
Lloyd’s research covered a wide range of unusual topics that he collectively called “alternative knowledge”. He detailed his theory about hominoids and much of his other research in his first nonfiction book “Everything You Know Is Wrong” published in 1997, and went on to lecture extensively in alternative knowledge circles.
After the success of “Everything You Know Is Wrong”, Lloyd was contacted by a Texas couple who owned an unusual skull that they hoped Lloyd could help them have studied. Lloyd agreed, and spent over a decade as the caretaker of what became known as the “Starchild Skull”. The scientific evaluation of the skull continues even today under the leadership of the current Starchild Project.
