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: http://infa.com.br/o_caso_guarapiranga.html 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. Kentaro Listen to 'Strange Days...
