Writer and researcher Lloyd Pye died yesterday as the result of cancer, according to posts made by family members on his Facebook page. He was 67 years old.

Pye was well known for his promotion of the controversial Starchild skull, an artifact he obtained and believed to indicate the existence of alien-human hybrid beings. The skull became the object of much debate and criticism.

Pye was born in Houma, La. He earned a football scholarship to Tulane University and attended during the 1960's. His ventures as an author, which included the sports-themed 'That Prosser Kid' of 1977 and 'Mismatch' from 1988, were well received.

A post made Monday on Facebook, apparently by a nephew, stated that Pye passed away early Monday evening. The post added that he was surrounded by family, and that privacy is requested.

“The family is asking for privacy at this time as we deal with the loss,” the Facebook post stated. “We will post additional information in the near future.”
