- Dear CAUS Members:
- In 1981 I represented three People in
a lawsuit against the United States Government for injuries that resulted
from their contact with an unusual aerial object. Betty Cash, Vicky Landrum
and Colby Landrum are the only three People to ever sue our government
for injuries from a UFO. On the eighteenth anniversary of her encounter,
Betty Cash died.
- Betty Cash was a warrior and heroine.
She fought the US government and, even in defeat, showed a spirit and tenacity
that will now be her epitaph. CAUS and I pay tribute to a very brave lady...and
a victim of this government's callousness to the rights of the individual.
The following is the announcement of her death:
- MUTUAL UFO NETWORK 103 OLDTOWN RD. SEGUIN,
- December 30, 1998
- For Immediate Release:
- INJURIES CAUSED BY UFO CLAIMS WOMAN'S
- Betty Cash, one of three people injured
in a UFO close encounter near Huffman, Texas, on December 29, 1980, died
on the 18th anniversary of the event, in Birmingham, Alabama. She had been
in poor health ever since the encounter. At the time of the event, Mrs.
Cash operated her own businesses near Dayton, Texas.
- Betty Cash, along with Vickie Landrum
and grandson Colby Landrum, encountered a huge UFO accompanied by military
helicopters on a dark road in the east Texas Piney Woods. They were exposed
to radiation from the object, which caused extreme medical problems such
as burns, eye damage, hair loss, diarrhea, and vomiting. Although they
and others observed a large number of military helicopters along with the
UFO, the U.S. Government refused to acknowledge the event or assist them
in any way.
- After the encounter, Betty Cash was hospitalized
and treated for burns and the other maladies. The extent of the injuries
was so great, she was forced to close her businesses and never worked again.
He life became a series of hospital stays, many of them in intensive care.
Eventually, she developed cancer, which was successfully treated. In November
1998, Mrs. Cash suffered a stroke. On December 29, during her recovery,
an unusual turn of events claimed her life.
- Mrs. Cash was a hero in the fight against
government UFO cover-ups and brought hope to other victims of UFO incidents.
She was devoted to family and friends and never allowed her illness to
prevent her from helping others to cope with the trauma of UFO close encounters.

Schuessler, MUFON's Deputy Director of Administration, and primary investigator
of Mrs. Cash's UFO incident, at (303) 948-6224, FAX (303) 948-6225, or

- Betty Cash will be missed...but never
