The case has baffled conspiracy theorists for seven decades in spite of the US military saying it was a balloon which crashed
A deputy sheriff said he saw he saw a crashed flying saucer and aliens who ‘looked like the ones we see on television’ at Roswell, a newly-released interview reveals.
Deputy Sheriff Charles Fogus rushed to the scene of a crashed aircraft in New Mexico in an incident that still baffles experts and conspiracy theorists after 70 years.
A new book claims Fogus said the UFO was around 100ft wide, and he said he saw soldiers removing dead ‘creatures’ from the scene.
Major Jesse Marcel from the Roswell Army Air Field with debris found 75 miles north west of Roswell, NM, in June 1947. The debris has been identified as that of a radar target. The Air Force released a report debunking reports of a UFO crash near Roswell
The deputy told Deanna Short, a private investigator from LA, there were between 300 and 400 soldiers on the scene when he arrived with Sheriff Jess Slaughter in July 1947.
In transcripts from a 1999 interview seen by The Mirror, and used in new book UFOs TODAY – 70 Years of Lies, Misinformation and Government Cover-Up, he said: ‘They were hauling a big, a creature.
‘The bodies must have been 5 feet tall. I saw the legs and feet on some of them. They looked like our feet.
‘The skin was a brownish color…. Like they were in the sun too long.’
Reports of a ‘flying saucer’ crash circulated at the time, prompting conspiracy theorists to believe aliens had landed
The incident continues to be popular with UFO enthusiasts seven decades after it happened
Asked if he had seen their heads, he said: ‘Yeh….they were covered. They eyes looked like the ones we see on television and the pictures of them.’
And reflecting on what he had seen, Fogus said: ‘The Great Father didn’t just make this planet…. He made all of them.
‘He put beings on these planets just like he put us on this one. They’re smarter then we are.’
