- Hi Jeff -
- I talked with the EMS in LR today. Guess what - the
investigation is over. Well, it 'never existed.' Seems the soil samples
were turned over to the State Crime Lab for testing; EMS said this incident
didn't fall under their jurisdiction, so they gave the samples to 'some
area school' that offered to help.
- During the conversation, I was told again that a local,
unnamed farmer was 'burning' in that area for 3 or 4 days before 'the
SATELLITE fell to the ground'...and so the fire allegedly occurred days
before the 'satellite' (fireball) was spotted in the sky over Arkansas
about 8 pm on March 9.
- Other than the fact that NONE of their 'facts' fit what
I documented after the event occurred, their story is interesting. We
are, apparently, to forget about: the fire responses from 3 different counties
and the State EMS Units; forget about the fact that NASA said NO satellite
nor space debris fell that night; forget about the multiple sightings
of fireballs from the southern tip to the northern tip of the state later
in the night.
- All state and local agencies have decided that there
was 'no event' that night. And yet their cover story doesn't match any
of the other cover stories thus far.
- I now have two independent professional fire officials
who have arrived at the same conclusion: the fire was the work of an unknown,
highly-flammable corrosive. The problem is it could have been any one
of over 100 different ones. The reasons for this belief:
- (1) The corrosive would burn at an extremely high
temp on the outer edge - while not burning on the inside. This explains
the paint burning on the car a mile away and explains the trees burning
only at the tops. The corrosive only burned at the edge of the material,
and, as it burned, fell away from the cool center where the tree branches
- (2) The small craters were caused by 'globs' of the
material falling from the trees or the air itself being on fire and burning
in many small areas.
- (3) There were multiple points of origin - and multiple
directions - the fire traveled, which indicates an 'air burst' or explosion.
- One of my two sources is a retired US Forestry Fire investigator
with 22 years of experience; the second is currently a Fire Chief in charge
of a HAZMAT (hazards materials) unit with over 10 years experience and
numerous special training courses in this type of fire fighting. Both
stress that all such flammable and highly-corrosive materials like this
are BANNED from all air cargo due to their extreme volatility.
- I find the cover story now being used by the EMS most
interesting as it now officially contains the expression 'satellite crash'
- which is what I alone claimed and tried to document from the beginniing.
This also goes along with the fact there were two entirely different event
burn sites: one scorched by fire and the other a carefully-protected site
completely and carefully filled in and covered over by heavy machines within
a few days of the event.
- As you may recall, I took samples and sent them to a
'ufo research organization' that was going to have them examined and promised
me a copy of the report. First, they claimed the sample would be evaluated
at three labs, then two labs and, finally, just one lab. From the day
my samples arrived at the center, I was told 'a week to 10 days' would
be needed. Every time I have contacted them since, I am told another
week to 10 days is still needed. They, of course, want ALL of my material,
photos, signed statements and so on, but I still have seen nothing from
- It is my firm belief that this item and the event it
caused did not come from outer space, neither close nor far away. I have
reason to believe this was a military test from the very beginning...and
continues to be such. I have only limited proof of that but I will continue
to probe as I can.
- That is the update as I now have it.
