- RIO CUARTO -- While
no names were mentioned, it was learned from researchers in Rio Cuarto
itself that the eyewitness account of Sergeant Guillermo Arias, involving
his strange encounter with a 200-meter long triangular device before midnight
on Sunday, July 21, 2002 near Chajn, some 60 km SE of Rio Cuarto, is gaining
credibility by the moment. Researchers of the C.O.R (Centro Ovnilogico
Riocuartense) told this service that in spite of certain delays in research
due to health reasons among some of the researchers, it has been possible
to collect evidence consisting of other eyewitness accounts, visual evidence,
"in situ" measurements and an "in visu" survey of the
sectors related to the events in question. This evidence is being analyzed
in detail in order not to overlook any aspect.
- Within the new evidence provided by the researchers there
stands out an episode which, according to the researchers, "surpasses
even the Arias experience", given that a policeman and a fireman
were "beseiged by a luminous, unidentified flying object with a powerful
violet beam." The same source declined identifying the parties involved,
arguing "professional secrecy." They did add that the event
occured moments before Arias's episode and almost in a straight line in
a North-South direction. They noted that personal contact had already been
made with the protagonists of this event, from whom reports had been received,
and progress is being made toward the first investigative phase of this
event in particular. Meanwhile, a commission shall work in an area near
[the towns] of Chajn and Suco respectively in gathering evidence.
