Just the Facts?: Close Encounter in NYC -- Cannibalism Discovered in Jamestown - Woman Fights Ghost

Close Encounter in NYC

NYC, NY - 8/25/1993 - unedited: I was sleeping soundly when I began to wake up due to sounds from the kitchen; I was flat on my back with two pillows under my head. I normally am asleep on my side, when a series of distinct sounds began to wake me up. The sound was coming from our kitchen.

My first thought was my son might have gotten out of bed, for the first time and was opening and closing drawers. I decided to get up out of bed but I was immediately and totally paralyzed by a buzzing feeling at the base of my brain.

Immediately my mind focused away from the noises to what I thought I was having, which was a stroke or brain hemorrhage or some sort of serious problem. I could not open my eyes I could not move my legs or any part of my body. The buzzing did not hurt.

My mind was 100% totally awake yet I was unable to move my body. I attempted, at first, to move my feet then legs. Then my arms and get up. But I absolutely could not. It was like a weight on my body. There was no pain. I could not speak.

I decided to try to open my eyes. I could not. I concentrated on opening just one eye which was my right eye. It took every bit of trying to get the eye lid to open, as it started to open. I noticed a creature with its arms extended over me at my knees. Its hands were glowing -yellow greenish.

Immediately I knew it was not my son! This has to be an alien! I was completely amazed. I struggled to keep my eye open. Suddenly this thing, moved out of the room directly through the wall! It moved fast, and was silent. The fact that it went through the wall was overwhelming.

The paralysis quickly went away. Physically I felt fine yet amazed at the event and experience I had. I went into my son’s room to check on him, he seemed fine. I walked to the kitchen and around then returned to the bedroom and went back to bed. I chose not to wake my wife who had been next to me the whole time.

I kept this experience to myself, briefly but seriously mentioning it the next day. Three days later I became really afraid and since that time I have just tried to deal with not knowing what this thing was and what it maybe had done to me. - MUFON CMS

Psychic searches for dognapped pup

A psychic from Puerto Rico is trying to find a dognapped Territory puppy using telepathic powers and the Archangel Michael.

Humpty Doo retail worker Andrea Beagley, 51, called in the help of higher powers after searching in vain for her 16-month-old best friend Buddy.

Ms Beagley said the maltese-dachshund cross was stolen from the front garden of her girlfriend's home at Lake Bennett.

"He was unhooked from his running lead," she said.

A creepy set of circumstances the day before the April 2 disappearance led Ms Beagley to suspect foul play.

She was lying down at a causeway with the dog on her chest when a passing car with a couple inside reversed and drove past twice, stopping to look at her for a long time.

"I think that they may have followed me home," she said.

Ms Beagley searched, printed leaflets and set up a Facebook page called Find Buddy Budsta.

After she had no luck, a friend from the US suggested "animal communicator" Jessica Westleigh.

The Puerto Rican-based energy healer says on her website she can telepathically communicate with animals of all species.

In a spooky coincidence, Ms Beagley said psychic Jess first described the same couple from the car: a tall lean man with a comb-over and a woman with dark curly hair.

After preparing a "healing altar" with crystals and gemstones, Jess called in the Archangel Michael to help find and protect Buddy.

The psychic reported visions as the dog sent her thought waves of distress.

"He said it was dark right now where he was. I got the impression he was inside a building," Ms Westleigh wrote.

"Buddy feels like the people are trying to decide what to do with him.''

Ms Westleigh explained the dog was desperate to come home and had tried to escape.

"I can do it,'' Ms Westleigh interpreted Buddy as thinking. "I know I can find my way. It's far, but I can do it.''

Ms Beagley doesn't know whether the psychic will be able to help but she sincerely loves her dog and wants him back.

"No questions asked," she said.

"People make mistakes and if they choose to do the right thing I'd be so grateful. I just want him back." - NT News


Passenger plane involved in near miss with UFO near Glasgow airport

A passenger plane was involved in a near miss an unidentified flying object, two pilots have reported.

The blue and yellow UFO came within 300ft of the Airbus 320 on December 2 above Baillieston as the plane approached Glasgow Airport.

The UK Airprox Board – which investigates near misses in the skies – heard the incident had taken place at around 3500ft. Both pilots on the flight reported seeing the UFO “loom ahead”.

The board head the object passed directly beneath the plane before either of the crew had time to take avoiding action or had “really registered it” although they were both agreed that it appeared blue and yellow or silver in colour with a small frontal area but that it was “bigger than a balloon”.

The estimated miss-distance was 300ft.

An air traffic controller said that he was not talking to anyone else in that area and that nothing was seen on radar at the time.

The board said: “The pilot of an A320, inbound to Glasgow, gave a contemporaneous account of his ac’s encounter with an untraced object at 3500ft.

“Investigation of the available surveillance sources was unable to trace any activity matching that described by the A320 pilot. Additionally there was no other information to indicate the presence or otherwise of activity in the area.”

The report concluded: “Members were of the opinion that, in the absence of a primary radar return, it was unlikely that the untraced ac was a fixed-wing or rotary-wing ac or man-carrying balloon.

“It was considered that a meteorological balloon would be radar significant and unlikely to be released in the area of the Airprox.

“A glider could not be discounted but it was felt unlikely that one would be operating in that area, both due to the constrained airspace and the lack of thermal activity due to the low temperature.

“Similarly, The Board considered that a hang-glider or para-motor would be radar significant and that conditions precluded them, as they did para-gliders or parascenders. Members were unable to reach a conclusion as to a likely candidate.” - STV

Scholars find cannibalism at Jamestown settlement

Scientists said Wednesday that they have found the first solid archaeological evidence that some of the earliest American colonists at Jamestown, Va., survived harsh conditions by turning to cannibalism.

For years, there have been tales of the starving English settlers resorting to eating dogs, mice, snakes and shoe leather at Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in America. There were also written accounts of settlers eating their own dead, but archaeologists had been skeptical of those stories.

But now, the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History and archaeologists from Jamestown are announcing the discovery of the bones of a 14-year-old girl that show clear signs that she was cannibalized.

Evidence indicates clumsy chops to the body and head, and it appears the girl was already dead at the time.

Smithsonian forensic anthropologist Douglas Owsley said the human remains date back to a deadly winter known as the "starving time" in Jamestown from 1609 to 1610. Hundreds of colonists died during the period. Scientists have said the settlers likely arrived during the worst drought in 800 years, bringing a severe famine for the 6,000 people who lived at Jamestown between 1607 and 1625.

Woman Fights Ghost

There was high drama in Braeton, St Catherine, on Wednesday following an incident in which a woman reportedly got into a fight with what residents said was a ghost.

The incident left many residents speechless and cowering in fear after the ghost, said to be that of a male, reportedly knocked the woman unconscious.

A woman who said she glimpsed the ghost, described the spirit as a short, bald-headed man, who was not wearing a shirt.

"Everybody a wonder a weh di duppy come from, but I don't have a thing to say because mi remember one time duppy tell mi dat mi chat too much," a resident from the area said.

THE STAR understands that since the incident, the woman has been wandering in the community barefooted.

It is reported that sometime after 7 p.m., the young woman was at home when she was knocked unconscious by what she later told residents was a strong force.

Residents say that when the young woman regained consciousness, she started fighting the ghost and kicking a fence.

THE STAR was told that incident drew a large crowd, and sent tongues wagging. The woman, it was further heard, was taken from the area to a gated community in St Catherine by relatives a couple hours later, but was then taken aback, apparently as the ghost was still tormenting her.

One resident who heard that the woman was taken to a gated community, made several comments, one of which caused much laughter. "How di duppy fi go a dat community, is a gated community," said the resident to much laughter.

A resident who was a part of the crowd said he too became afraid, as the young woman is known by many in the community as a sane person.

"Mi never see anything like dis, mi always hear dem a talk about duppy, but a first mi ever see somebody a run up and down so and a fight back duppy. One person even seh dat dem see di duppy so people start ketch dem fraid because it look like everywhere di girl go, di duppy go deh to," the resident said. - Jamaica-Star
