I received this email from a reader that pertained to the possible 3rd 'mantis man' sighting:
I saw your post this morning re the Mantis sightings. I just wanted to let you know it's kind of a relief to know about this because when it first happened with me back in 1987, I thought maybe I was going crazy. I had contact with these beings at that time but have rarely spoken of it to anyone. They communicated through some manner whereby they connected to the inside of my head through the brain behind both ears. When I became aware of it at first it was like a humming with a clicking sound interspersed. Very much like what crickets might sound like on a large scale perhaps. I was curious and concerned by this and wondered what the heck was going on.
To this day I still don't know if I intercepted a communication going on between them, like tuning into a radio station, or if it was deliberate on their part. At first I just heard the humming clicking noises but then pictures started to emerge from these sounds. I was able to see what they looked like, mantis is the word I used to describe their forms. I also knew from this communication that they were not on our plane of existence, at that time anyway, and that they were planning to emerge in our plane for their own purposes. I got the distinct impression that they were cold and insect like, logical with very little in the way of emotion or compassion which frightened me the most. The other impression I got from this was that they believed themselves to be our superiors like we believe about animals in our world. Whatever they were deciding it was based on this belief, in other words for our own good or the greater picture. I hope this makes sense.
From that time to this I never thought I would be hearing about this or reading about it in a public forum. I put it out of my mind for the most part, filed away under: weird unexplainable things that don't make sense.
I also found this youtube video this morning while searching for info on this:
I found this older report:
'BUG ALIENS' IN NEVADA
Location: Stillwater, Nevada - June 1994 - evening
As they watched fascinated, his wife suddenly let out a blood-curling scream the witness turned around and saw two "aliens" coming towards the car. These were described as bug-like, with their heads looking like preying mantises. They had humanoid-looking bodies, however, and wore bluish gray jumpsuits. The terrified witness, who was armed with a gun, pulled it out and fired two shots towards the road in front of the figures. This must have startled the humanoids, which suddenly ran back to their landed cylinder shaped object. At this point the witness began speeding away from the area, looking back he saw additional similar appearing humanoids standing around the craft, about 9 or 10 of them. They did not see the object depart.
