Deathbed Confession Keeps Roswell Mystery Alive

Something crashed on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. The rancher who found the wreckage thought it was a downed flying saucer. The local paper thought so, too. The headline of the July 8, 1947 edition of the Roswell Daily Record read, “RAAF Captures Flying Saucer On Ranch in Roswell Region.” (RAAF stands for “Roswell Army Air Field). According to the article, the Army announced it had “come into possession of a flying saucer.” Shortly thereafter, the Army held a press conference, apparently, to clarify its position. It wasn’t a flying saucer, but a reconnaissance balloon that had crashed.

Since the crash, witnesses have come forward to refute the Army’s position. They’re convinced it was an aircraft of incredibly advanced technology. Some witnesses even claimed the Army recovered alien bodies. Are these people nuts? The Air Force released
two reports in the nineties saying they are.

But one of the military’s own broke ranks from beyond the grave recently.

Lieutenant Walter Haut was RAAF public relations officer at the time of the controversial crash. In fact, he’s the very man that delivered the press release describing how a recon balloon, not a flying saucer had crashed near Roswell. And he stuck to that story until his death last year. Now, the text of a sworn affidavit by Haut (only to be opened after his death) has surfaced that contradicts everything.

According to the affidavit, “the weather balloon claim was a cover story… the real object had been recovered by the military and stored in a hangar,” according to
a report in the Sydney Telegraph. (Did anyone see a US news source pick this up?) Not only did Haut confirm the recon balloon business was nonsense, but he claims to have seen alien bodies.

In Haut’s affidavit, he describes a meeting with base commanders where they inspected unidentifiable materials from the crash. He also revealed that there was a second, more extensive crash site that the public never learned of. Most surprisingly, he details a visit to the Air Field’s “Buliding 84,” where he saw a cigar-shaped craft approximately 15 feet in length and two bodies, partially covered by a tarp, that were about 3 feet tall and had “disproportionately large heads.”

"I am convinced that what I personally observed was some kind of craft and its crew from outer space,” read the affidavit.

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
