This article will be taking a look at the Hopkinsville Kentucky aliens case of 1955. What were the strange goblin creatures that appeared at the Sutton family farmhouse?
The Hopkinsville Goblin Case
On August the 14th, 1955, a local woman in Dogtown, Indiana, contacted the local press with a strange story.
She claimed that while on a swimming trip along the banks of the Ohio River, she and her friends had noticed a peculiar shiny object above them in the sky.
Without warning, some sort of creature reached through the water and grabbed at one of the group – trying desperately to drag them under the water.
It’s arm, and hands, were fuzzy – as if covered in a type of fur material, it also had claws on the end of each finger.
Exactly one week later, a family gathering took place at a small farmhouse near Hopkinsville…
The Hopkinsville KY UFO Incident
The gathering took place at the Sutton family’s farmhouse, and close friend Billy Ray Taylor was attending.
Taylor was outside getting water from the farm’s well when he noticed something large and bright, falling out of the sky. It seemed to land in a nearby field.
He went back in the house and told the gathering what he had just witnessed…but his claims were met with laughter.
Later that evening, the family gathering were shocked when the Sutton’s dog started barking uncontrollably. Billy Ray and Lucky Sutton decided to scan the area outside, to see what was concerning the animal so much.
Within minutes, the two men ran back in the house screaming and looking for the shotguns – they told the family to lock all the doors and stay away from the windows.
The shocked family members asked what had happened, and the two young men told them that a number of strange creatures were in the nearby field.
Over the next few hours the family were terrorized by these creatures as they hung to the farmhouse walls, and peered at them through the windows.
The creatures were apparently short with pointed ears, claw-like hands and large round eyes. They wore strange metallic, silver-colored suits.
The Terrifying Hopkinsville Encounter
Many of the creatures were shot through the windows of the home, and at one point, Taylor went outside to shoot at more.
Whenever he hit one of the creatures, the bullet seemed to have little effect – the creature would simply float away further down the yard.
After a couple of minutes outside, one of the ‘goblins’ managed to grab Taylor’s head. He managed to get away, and retreated back to the safety of the house.
The family eventually managed to get into two separate cars, and make a mad dash into the nearby town, where they went straight to the sheriff’s office.
The sheriff and a number of local and State law enforcement officers, visited the farmhouse soon afterwards.
The creatures were gone, but they found a lot of shotgun shells outside the farmhouse. The family members pleaded with the authorities to search the house – they were petrified and did not want to go back into the home.
The house was searched, and nothing was found.
Just before the search was concluded, the local media turned up and started taking accounts off the family members involved.
The authorities and the media left, a couple of hours later…but the family insisted that the ‘goblins’ reappeared later that night, and started terrorizing them once again!
This family had no reason to lie, and left the farmhouse and moved on within a matter of weeks after the incident.
This article will be taking a look at the mysterious Fred Valentich disappearance of 1978 – could it be attributed to a UFO that numerous people reported witnessing that evening?
Let’s take a closer look…
At approximately 7 pm on October the 21st, 1978, a young pilot named Fred Valentich mysteriously disappeared.
Due to his body and aircraft never being found – the young man is presumed dead.
But…many ufologists believe that Valentich did not simply crash and die…but rather he was killed or abducted by a UFO…
Born on the 9th June, 1958, Frederick Valentich live with his family in Melbourne, Australia. He had always had an interest in planes and when he was old enough, he joined up with the youth Air Cadets.
He attempted to get into the Royal Australian Air Force on two separate occasions, but unfortunately he did not hold enough qualifications to pass the entry requirements.
Valentich then decided to aim all his efforts towards becoming a commercial airline pilot. He was issued his student pilot license and then private pilot license in 1977.
Valentich’s family also claimed that their son was a bit of a ufologist, and regularly studied reports of UFO’s he’d picked up from the Air Force.
On the day of his disappearance, Valentich handed in a flight plan that suggested he was heading towards King Island in the south-eastern state of Australia.
This journey would have taken him through an area known as Bass Strait – well known for maritime disappearances and shipwrecks (it was a section of sea between Tasmania and the mainland).
He took off at 6:15 pm and at about 7 pm he radioed in to Melbourne air traffic control asking about any other aircraft in the area – he was told that he was the only flight in that specific area.
He then informed traffic control that he was looking straight at an extremely large aircraft that had four large landing lights. He also noted that this air vessel was traveling at fast speed and had passed about 1,000 feet above him.
Valentich then went on to describe the strange vessel in more detail. He claimed that it seemed metallic and had a strange green light shining out of it…
Then he reported that it had vanished!
Moments later he radioed back in to air control claiming the vessel had reappeared and was hovering right next to him – it was definitely NOT an aircraft.
He then reported that he was experiencing engine problems with his plane…
Air control then heard about 20 seconds of a strange scraping or scratching sound before the communication fell silent.
Valentich’s plane never made it to King Island.
A search was put together that combed the Bass Strait for over a week…but they never managed to recover Valentich or his plane.
The Valentich UFO Link
Twenty minutes before Valentich reported engine trouble, a man near Cape Otway managed to capture an image of a fast moving flying object leaving the water in one of his photographs.
When Valentich’s mysterious disappearance became public knowledge, numerous people came forward claiming that they had seen extremely bright lights in the sky, around about the time the young pilot radioed in to air control.
A handful of witnesses even claimed to have seen Valentich’s plane in a steep dive with a strange bright light following it.
Authorities managed to keep the young pilot’s description of the UFO under tabs until 1982, when it finally became public knowledge. Many UFOlogists believe that this initial secrecy points to an extraterrestrialcover up.

This article will be covering the Westall high school UFO incident in Melbourne, Victoria, in 1966, when more than 200 students witnessed something strange in the skies above them…
The Westall UFO 1966
Mid-morning, on April the 6th, 1966, students of Westall Primary and Westall High School were busy at their work when the silence was broken by some sort of commotion outside the school buildings.
The students that were playing in the schoolyard were all looking up to the skies – tracking the progress of a strange flying object passing over the schools.
The teachers noticed this disturbance, and one by one they joined the students out on the yard. Suddenly, the ‘craft’ descended behind a group of trees and seemed to land in an area known locally as ‘The Grange’.
The flying object was about the same size as a regular family car and it seemed to move silently – there was no sign of any engine noise. It was shaped like a saucer and it had a silver/blue/purple color to it’s body.
A young boy who’s parents owned some land in The Grange, was playing nearby and witnessed the saucer descend and touch down on the ground. He quickly went and got his father to the scene. The father examined the area where his son claimed the craft had landed, and found a circular pattern that had heat-damaged the grass somehow.
Two girls from the nearby high school also managed to witness the saucer landing in The Grange. They apparently got within 6 meters of the strange object before feeling slightly ill. They returned to school and one of them starting vomiting violently – she was taken away by ambulance and was never seen again at the school.
The Westall UFO Incident
Many of the locals managed to witness the UFO taking off again. They claim that 5 military aircraft surrounded the saucer as it glided across the sky, circling it.
After the incident, the local military denied that these planes were present. The pilots never came forward and no official reports were penned by the army.
Within hours, the police and army officials had cordoned off the area in The Grange where the UFO had landed. They quickly got to work on the area and burned away the grass where the saucer had been seen landing.
The two schools were obviously full of students that could not stop talking about the strange incident. The headmistress of the high school was taken aside by ‘men in suits’ and told she was not allowed to talk about what had happened to anybody. She was also told to address the students and make sure they kept their mouths shut!
The media did eventually manage to get hold of the story, and a TV news channel broadcast the story…but the footage has since gone missing. It simply vanished from the TV station’s archives and never returned…
Numerous explanations were put forward by the authorities – but nobody really bought them. First of all it was a weather balloon, then it was nylon target drogue…maybe it was a prototype aeroplane or a local military operation?
I doubt it…

This article will be covering the alien reports that surfaced in Brazil in 1996 – now known as The Varginha Incident. What were these strange bipedal creatures and where did they come from?
Let’s take a closer look…
The first reports of these creatures surfaced in the city on January the 20th, 1996, when three young women claimed they had encountered one.
The creature was said to be no more than five feet tall, bipedal, with dark brown skin. It’s head was said to have been ‘over-sized’ with large red eyes, and it had an extremely slender body.
The creature seemed to be injured in some way, and moved in a hobble, as if it was seriously hurt. The three girls (Lilane Silva, Valquiria Silav and Katia Xavier) didn’t care a jot if it was injured – the red eyes were enough to send them running off, screaming.
Word spread quickly, and the local press pushed the story until it was worldwide news.
But this was not the end of the extraterrestrial activity in Varginha during January, 1996…
The night before the discovery of this creature, the Brazilian Center on Air Defence and Air Traffic Control was contacted by a US agency, regarding an unidentified object heading towards the ground near Minas Gerais Estate in South East Brazil.
Around about the same time, two farmers were awoken to the sound of cattle going mad in their fields. They both got up, got changed, and walked out into the night to find out what was spooking the animals.
When they got to the first field they were shocked to see a silent flying object without lights gliding down one of their fields. The ‘craft’ seemed to be in some sort of distress and was banking left and right erratically.
Rumors suggest that this UFO finally crashed on the farmland, and an alien survivor was shot by one of the farmers. All the evidence was removed from the scene by authorities before the locals could set eyes on it (apparently!).
The Varginha Reports
The reports of ‘The Devil’ creatures started surfacing in Varginha at 8 o’clock the following morning. The first one was made by a student not more than 6 miles away from the farm crash site.
The Varginha Fire Department then received several calls that morning regarding strange creatures in the city. These creatures were described as moving like jaguars. The military had turned up at the scene of every report and ‘removed’ each culprit.
The whole city spent the remainder of the day watching the military patrol their streets, looking for something…
One of these military groups are rumored to have captured one of these creatures alive in a city park, that night. They apparently took it to a general hospital where the doctors and nurses were suppressed. Several areas of the hospital were closed down and the public were told it was nothing more than a training exercise for the military.
The creature is rumored to have died in a ward of that hospital, and kept there under guard, for a full thirty hours before the military heads turned up to remove it.
The Varginha Incident, Brazil
Locals of Varginha, Brazil, still believe that their city was under extraterrestrial quarantine on January the 20th, 1996 – what do you think?

This article will be covering the controversial George Adamski UFO photos from the 1950’s. Was this Polish born American really in touch with aliens or was he nothing more than a clever fraud?
Let’s take a closer look…
George Adamski and the Venusians
Adamski’s most famous contact with a Venusian (alien race from Venus) was in December 1952, when he managed to capture a photograph of one of their scout ships.
George Adamski had already gone public with a handful of previous alien encounters but this one seemed to gain him notoriety and unwanted criticism.
The First Contact
Adamski claimed that his first ‘alien encounter’ took place some time in 1946, when he saw a cigar shaped ‘mothercraft’ pass in front of the moon during a meteor shower.
Then, in 1950, Adamski managed to capture a photograph of six UFO’s flying in formation.
It was in 1952 that Adamski had his closest encounter, when a Venusian scout ship landed near him and a being named Orthon stepped out.
Orthon and Adamski had a telepathic conversation in which the Venusian warned about the dangers of the nuclear age and doomsday predictions.
When the conversation was over, Adamski asked the Venusian if he could take a picture of him, but Orthon would not agree to this.
However, Adamski was able to take the famous ‘Scout Ship’ photo when Orthon returned several weeks later.
An Important Man
George Adamski became a very famous man, and published several books on his encounters with the Venusian race.
The Queen Julianna of the Netherlands took great interest in his work and even presented him with a Golden Medal of Honor for his services in acting as a medium between humanity and the extraterrestrial.
His writings explain that he went on several journeys through the solar system with the Venusians – meeting numerous new alien races along the way. He called these groups of alien species ‘Space Brothers’.
The Adamski Empire Starts to Crumble
Even before the release of the 1952 scout ship, Adamski had his critics who claimed he was nothing more than a crazy fraud.
Adamski had claimed to have used a Kodak Brownie box camera and a six inch telescope to snap the scout ship in motion…but photographic experts started pulling holes in his story.
They claimed that the precise, separate manipulations of the camera/telescope setup would have caused the photographic image to be extremely blurred…but it was extremely sharp!
Other critics claim that the ship itself is made up of easily recognizable household items – one of Adamski’s colleagues even stated that he had come across the UFO model, when it was being constructed.
BUT…it’s also worth noting that many experts in the field of photography at the time agreed with what Adamski was saying – they believe that the scout ship image was definitely NOT a fake.
So now it’s over to you – friend of the ‘star men’ from Venus or clever fraud?

The painting named The Madonna with Saint Giovannino is a 15th century piece of art that has been causing a stir among Ancient Alien theorists for many decades now. Many ufologists firmly believe that there is some kind of UFO included in the picture’s skyline.
But this is not the only example of antique art depicting alien life – numerous other historical paintings also include strange objects in their skyline settings. Is this proof that aliens have been visiting us for centuries?
Let’s take a closer look…
Controversy – Who Painted it?
Domenico Ghirlandaio is most often credited with painting this strange piece of art that shows the UFO…but the true painter of The Madonna with San Giovannino is still in dispute.
Jacopo del Sellaio and Sebastiano Mainardi have in the past, both been linked to the painting. Mainardi was actually the brother-in-law of Ghirlandaio who learned everything he knew about art from him.
UFO or Religious Symbology?
So what is that strange flying object in the background of the picture? Why does it look so much like a UFO?
Many skeptics believe that there is a simple explanation for it’s inclusion in the picture. They believe it to be a representation of the gospel passage from the Gospel of Luke 2:8….
“Shepherds abiding in the field keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, an angel of the Lord come upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them”
The Florentine Renaissance period offered many paintings which included some form of ‘shepherd and dog’ nativity scene – frequently looking up at the sky towards a bright shining object. More often than not these objects are simply meant to be angels or stars.
But not everyone goes along with this biblical angle…
To be brutally honest – there are no wings or body to suggest that this is meant to be some sort of angel.
Is it really a painted experience of an ancient UFO encounter?
Is it a mistake that the artist made, and couldn’t be bothered to cover up (i.e. turned it into something else?)
Or is it simply misinterpretation and a lack of understanding of religious iconography throughout art history?
It’s worth remembering that until recently, the Catholic church has gone out of it’s way to shun scientific fact and the thought of life on other planets. Why would so many painters of religious contexts opt to include something that their faith does not believe in?

In this article we will be taking a look at the Betty Andreasson alien abduction case from January the 25th, 1967, in the town of South Ashburnham, Massachusetts…
Betty was clearing up the kitchen around 6:30 PM on the night of January the 25th, 1967. The rest of her family were sitting waiting for her in the living room area of the house.
All of a sudden, the light in the kitchen started to flicker on and off, and a strange red light beamed in from somewhere outside the kitchen window.
She heard her children panicking in the living room and ran in to help her parents calm them down.
Betty informed her father about the red light in the kitchen, and then began calming down the kids. Her father went to investigate.
When he got to the kitchen window he was amazed to see five strange creatures heading toward their house in a hopping motion.
The creatures then somehow walked straight through the wooden kitchen door and into the house. The family members were then put in a powerful trance.
The ‘head’ creature, or ‘leader’, seemed to be about a foot taller than the other visitors in the group. He began to engage in a telepathic conversation with Betty.
The group of aliens were later described as being around the five-feet tall mark, with wide eyes, small ears, and noses, set in a pear-shaped head.
Their mouths seemed to be tiny slits underneath their noses – but they were too small to be used for speech/communication. They instead communicated with their minds.
The group also wore pale blue overalls with over-sized belts – they bore a logo of a bird on their sleeves.
They did not walk through the house, but glide in a floating motion.
We Come in Peace
The aliens could see that Betty was becoming a little distressed by her children being held in suspended animation.
They opted to release her 11-year-old daughter from the trance to assure her that no harm was going to be done to her family, to relax.
The aliens eventually moved Betty to their waiting vessel, on the hill outside her house. It was apparently about 20 feet in diameter and shaped like a saucer.
Once inside the UFO, it took off into the sky and landed inside a waiting mother-ship.
She was then subjected to a series of strange medical tests that she estimated lasted for at least four hours. She was then returned to her house by two of the alien visitors.
Betty’s Partial Memory
One of the aliens had been left behind to keep an eye on the remainder of the family in their suspended state. As soon as Betty was reunited the trance was lifted, and the visitors left.
Betty had been put through some sort of hypnotized process to erase memories of her abduction…but for some reason it didn’t work as it should…and she remembered various aspects of this strange abduction.
She was eventually investigated by a team of dedicated ufologists who came to the conclusion that Betty and her family were sane individuals, believing in their experience as presented

In this article we will be taking a look at the Hoia Baciu forest circle, also known as the World’s Most Haunted Forest. Ghost sightings, unexplained apparitions and UFO encounters have all been reported in the area…
The Hoia Baciu Haunted Forest
The forest gets its name from a shepherd that disappeared in the area with a flock of two hundred sheep. Ever since this incident, the locals try their best to stay away from the area.
Those that have had no option other than to enter the forest, have returned with rashes, nausea, vomiting, migraines, burns and scratches.
The forest gained worldwide notoriety in the 1960’s when a biologist named Alexandru Sift returned from the area with several images of disc-shaped objects in the sky. A couple of years later, on August 18th, 1968, a military technician named Emil Barnea also returned from the forest with a fascinating photo of a UFO.
The forest seems to inflict rashes on many of it’s visitors – these rashes coincide with electronic devices not working as they should.
Over the years, numerous teams of paranormal investigators have recorded incidents of orbs of light, disembodied female voices and giggling children (much like the famous scenes in The Blair Witch Project).
Many of the locals believe the strange happenings inside the forest are down to the fact that it is actually a gateway to another dimension.
Several stories tell of people entering the forest and experiencing missing time – some people have gone missing for days on end!
The most famous report linked to this ‘idea’ involves a 5-year-old girl who is thought to have got lost in the forest years ago. Nobody really knows if this story is true or not, but, it is said that she went missing and turned up 5 years later.
She was apparently wearing the same clothes she got lost in…
The Romanian peasants
Another local theory linked to the strange activity in the forest involves a group of Romanian peasants who were murdered there.
It is believed that the souls of these tormented ghosts are trapped within the wooded confines of the Hoia Baciu woods. Apparently, they are fully aware that they were murdered and they are fully aware that they are trapped inside the forest – so they are NOT in the best of moods when visitors enter their domain!
Locals believe that the spirits of these murdered peasants appear as green eyes in the dark forest mist.
The Hoia Baciu Forest Circle
The Hoia Baciu forest circle seems to be the epicenter of the paranormal incidents that come from the area – this is a dead area where nothing ever grows.
Over the years, soil samples have been taken from the site and analyzed but the results show nothing out of the ordinary – there is no real reason why vegetation is not growing in this area.
Paranormal investigators believe that this area could be a hub for the paranormal entities stuck in the forest – the circular plateau dead zone could in fact act as a home to the spirits…

I’m going to level with you here – conducting research for this website absolutely rocks at times!
I don’t have to trawl through educational papers or boring politics – I don’t have to learn any languages (well, maybe Klingon!) or techniques…
I just have to read up on the coolest subjects known to man!
Take the subject of this article today – the alien base under Antarctica…
Who wouldn’t want to read an article with that title?
Anyway, it’s a subject that’s been floating around the internet for over a decade now – and it’s just had a revamp due to ‘something’ being discovered buried deep within the ice of Antarctica.
In May of 1945, the Russians were pouring into Germany and Berlin was surrounded – Hitler and his closest allies were buried deep in a bunker that was about to act as their tomb.
Records show that they all decided to take the cowards way out and commit suicide in the bunker, before the Russians took them.
However, many theories have circulated about what actually happened during the final days of the Third Reich – did Hitler really take his own life?
Surely he must have had a backup plan of some sort in place?
What about the theory that he escaped in a submarine to a secret base beneath Antarctica?
All through the Second World War, the Allies and Axis powers kept on coming up with new and twisted ways of killing one another.
At one point, the Nazis seemed to be edging ahead in the race to build the ultimate flying machine weapon – many believed that they had managed to get their hands on alien technology.
Conspiracy theorists believe that the Nazis managed to befriend a race of aliens who helped them build a secret base in Antarctica. It is here that they are thought to have been creating this frightening new line of aircraft and weaponry.
So where did all these internet rumors come from originally?
Why has this internet myth grown and gathered so much pace?
Well, in 1962, Albert Bender, a Air Force veteran during World War 2, put his experiences into writing.
He claimed that he was abducted by aliens on several occasions during the 1950’s – on one of these occasions he ended up in the fabled secret base in Antarctica.
At this point there were no Nazis present – they had all been scattered across the globe due to result of the Second World War.
But he did meet a reptilian race of aliens that claimed to have helped the Nazis build their technology. They had apparently been living in this UFO base under the ice for over two centuries.
The aliens claimed that just before the Second World War started, the Nazis turned up at their ‘door’ from a ship named the Schwabenland.
It should be noted that there are actual historical accounts of the Schwabenland traveling to Antarctica.
Bender never managed to find out if these aliens knew the evil intentions of the Nazi group – were they aware they were helping monsters take over the world?
There are also conspiracy theories from the end of World War 2 concerning the Americans – apparently they launched a secret mission to Antarctica to destroy the few remaining Nazis.

The world has always wondered about the existence of beings from other planets or other dimensions. This nagging question about aliens visiting our planet in secret or UFOs being spotted all over our airspace continues to pile with no clear answers anywhere in sight.
It seems like the more we dig about it, the more confusing it gets. While many inquisitive minds run after the truth, countless of government and affiliated private agencies work tirelessly to conceal the truth.
So what happened in Roswell back in the stormy night of July 4th, 1947?
Will we ever get the truth about the Area 51 Roswell incident?
Why do world governments spend so much time and state resources trying so hard to hide the truth from us?
Is it to protect us?
Is it for their own selfish benefits?
No one knows yet…but the Roswell incident is only one of the many UFO stories that the US government has never really succeeded in sweeping under the carpet.
There were just too many witnesses to control or muffle without directly breaking the law…
New Mexico Wakes Up to New Neighbors From The Sky
The first people to visit the Roswell UFO crash site were a rancher called Mack Brazel and a young boy belonging to the Proctor family.
The two were in the fields checking up on sheep after a stormy night to ensure that the sheep were okay.
Factual historic accounts say that once Mack and the boy got to the field, they came across debris from an unknown craft that had crashed in the open fields that previous night.
According to Mack, the thing was like nothing he’d seen before; a shiny but extremely light metallic foil like material that could not be broken or remain bent or even show signs of creasing no matter how much Mack folded it.
He decided to carry some of the debris home and immediately shared his discovery with the Proctors.
Soon after inspecting the pieces from the strange craft, the Proctors were convinced that Mack had found a UFO (alien spacecraft) since there were numerous cases/rumors of UFO sightings in the Roswell area for some time.
They then asked him to report the matter to the county sheriff in Chaves, George Wilcox which he did two days later.
Wilcox then called Maj. Jesse Marcel, an intelligence officer in the 509th Bomb Group who was stationed at RAAF (Roswell Army Air Field – now known as the Walker Air Force Base) at the time to discuss this mysterious phenomenon with him and that’s when everything started growing dark and confusing.
That was the beginning of the gradual cover up by the government.
Two well-known UFO researchers, Kevin Randle and Don Schmitt reported that their research had shown a possibility that military radar had picked up this unidentified flying object before it went down.
These two UFO enthusiasts wrote in their book titled A History of UFO Crashes that two more eyewitnesses, William Woody and his dad had seen the strange craft as it crashed some 40 miles northwest of Roswell.
In the book, Woody is quoted talking of a dazzling object plummeting to the ground as he and his dad watched.
Randle and Schmitt continued to point out that the crash site was totally closed to the public for a couple of days as the military worked quickly to clear the wreckage.
Nobody was allowed to go near the crash site during this time… and that can be confirmed by Woody’s recorded claim that the military personnel present at the site barred him and his dad from gaining access to the area when they both went out looking for the strange object from the night before.
So what solid evidence supports the validity of the Roswell incident?
The Unearthly Debris
This is the first piece of evidence that aliens live secretly among us and that one of the ships went down in Roswell that fateful night of 4th July, 1947 despite efforts from the government to keep this story under tight wraps.
After the heads up from Wilcox, Marcel was ordered by Col. William Blanchard, the commanding officer of the 509th to go investigate the crash site together with Capt. Sheridan Cavitt (a senior CIC –Counter Intelligence Corps – agent) and Brazel.
The first stop for these three was Brazel’s home where Marcel inspected one of the large pieces of debris that Brazel had dragged home.
When they got to the field the next morning on the Monday of 7th July 1947, Marcel noted that the debris covered an area approximately three-quarters of a mile and a couple of hundred feet wide.
Marcel later said that the debris was strewn all over the place and it looked like the spacecraft had exploded in the air before crashing down to the ground.
Marcel who had even been to the White Sands Testing Grounds and a witness to numerous secret government projects is quoted saying, “I have seen rockets, both experimental and weather balloons, but I have never seen anything like this!”
He was referring the small pieces of indestructible tinfoil debris and some structures that resembled I-beams that he could neither break nor bend despite their startling weightlessness.
He also noticed strange markings on the I-beams that he could not comprehend. Marcel’s story was confirmed by Dr. John Watkins who interviewed a hypnotized Marcel in May, 1990.
Blanchard is also on record saying that the materials recovered from the Roswell crash site was not something he’d ever seen or heard of before.
The Case of Mysterious Bodies
This is where a bit of confusion and a big blur come into the story. None of the previous witnesses ever talked of encountering any bodies.
In fact, there were no mentions of any bodies on the crash site until an incident with a young mortician, Glenn Dennis, from Ballard Funeral Home, made one curious call from the morgue at the army base making a very unusual request; to be supplied with air-tight coffins.
One strange thing that happened to Dennis during this time was being kicked out of the army base hospital after he went there for a friendly visit with one of the nurses.
He also chanced to see pieces of the spacecraft’s wreckage which had more strange markings peeking from the back of one laden military ambulance.
When Dennis met the nurse the following day, she drew him pictures of the creatures she’d seen and that was the last time Dennis saw her.
Rumors say that she was transferred to England but who knows…?
Her whereabouts have remained a mystery since then!
The Press Release
Blanchard was really throwing a lot of orders around and one Walter Haut would soon find himself at the receiving end of one.
Being RAAF’s public information officer, he was ordered by Blanchard to write a press release on the discovery of the UFO.
Blanchard was in a hurry to get credit for the UFO’s discovery and he forgot to ask his superiors, a decision that came back to haunt him a few days later.
The finished press release had been given to 2 radio stations and the two local newspapers in Roswell.
The heading read: “RAAF Captures Flying Saucer on Ranch in Roswell Region”.
This was the beginning of the government cover up.
The Government Gets Involved Through the Army HQ
When Blanchard sent Marcel to Carswell Air Force Base (formerly Fort Worth Army Air Field), to report to a Brig. Gen. Roger M. Ramey (8th Air Force commanding officer), he carried a piece of debris from the crash site to show to Ramey.
This is where the strange became stranger…upon his request to be shown the exact crash site on the map, Ramey and Marcel stepped out of his office to the map room so that Marcel could show him where the aliens had crashed.
When they returned to Ramey’s office, the piece of UFO material brought by Marcel was gone and in its place was a weather balloon!
And thus the cover story began.
The press release was quickly cancelled and Haut was sent to retrieve the copies he’d given to the newspapers and the radio stations and instead give them this new story about the debris being out of a weather balloon, and not from a UFO as earlier reported.
A cleanup crew was then dispatched to the site and just like that, all evidence was gone!
Broadcasters Walt Whitmore and Judd Roberts who hoped to see the debris before it was moved by the military were sternly turned away.
Everything was collected in crates and stored at the army base hangar for a while before making a total vanishing act…forever!
Even Mack Brazel was seen by Whitmore as he was escorted to the Roswell Daily Record offices to recant his story.
The debris from the UFO suddenly turned into a weather balloon and that was that…the newspapers had to go with this new story.
