Description (In Witness’s Own Words): I was outside working on my jeeps and the next thing I know I saw these lights that were really bright and kind a hurt my eyes. So then I see this light covering the whole sky and I heard a really loud noise like a tornado siren right in my [email protected]! Then this beam of light starts to pull me up into this machine, luckily I was holding on to my jeep and they let me go.
I prayed really hard and I think that saved me because they left real quick when they saw I wasn’t letting go of the jeep.
Investigator’s Notes: Certainly this is a spectacular story. The witness did leave complete contact information (email, phone number , address, etc). Normally hoaxers don’t leave contact information. (There are exceptions to the rule.)
The witness has not responded to my email message whereby I asked him several questions about his experience. This more indicative that this encounter is a hoax. Any updates to this case will be posted.
