A shocking loss to all, as Covo was still very active and had
many plans ahead. I deeply regret not answering sooner the last
message I received from him a couple of weeks ago. Now it's too
late. But his memories and work will remain with us.

Claudeir Covo was a nuts-and-bolts researcher, who uncovered,
researched and actually solved several cases, one of the most
famous of which -- along with his wife, Paola, and Tania Cunha -
- was the "Guarapiranga" alleged "human mutilation" case.

Covo conclusively showed there was nothing mysterious involved:

He recognized the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis as a Hypothesis,
that is, something that still lacked conclusive proof, though he
listed the Varginha Case as well as the May 1986 "Official UFO
Night" as best cases that definitely pointed to unexplained
phenomena.

Of particular interest, in my opinion, was his research of the
Capao Redondo UFO video, to this day an unsolved case with clear
physical evidence and multiple witnesses.

Some of these cases and work can be seen on the website of his
investigation institute: http://infa.com.br/casos.html

RIP, Claudeir Covo.
