Subj: Human Mutilation?
In the new issue of UFO Magazine, I have written an update on the
investigation of what appear to be more mutilations involving humans.
During the November 1989 Omega conference hosted by John White, Whitley
Strieber castigated UFO Magazine for running my story on human mutilations in
Vol. 4 Number 3. In that news story, I related the results of an
investigation I was conducting on what appeared to be a series of human
deaths that greatly resembled animal mutilations. Also, I included a report
from Wm. "Bill" Knell of the Long Island Skywatch organazation. Knell had
been conducting research into an inordinate number of missing children in the
area of Westchester County. According to Strieber, he had received
"hundreds" of phone calls from concerned citizens about the story. (That in
itself is suspect, as anyone knows who has ever tried to call Strieber.
Strieber has an answering service or secretary that screens each call, takes
a message and then Whitley decides on whom he will speak with.) Anyway, I
digress. Knell has many police contacts, and after checking with them, there
were no contacts from Whitley. (One could surmise that what really had Whit
in a snit was the way the print media had lambasted his flick, Communion, and
his recent books, such as Majestic. He had just called all journalists -
According to Knell and officers from the New York State Police, and the
Connecticut State Police, the reported figures were in no way accurate, but
the weirdest happening was when Knell received an inquiry from an Asst.
Medical Examiner from Westchester County. The Asst. ME wanted to know
everything Knell could relate on humans that had been mutilated. When Knell
pursued this, it turned out that 3 morgues ( 2 in New York, 1 in Connecticut)
had been "hit" in the middle of the night. Newly arrived human cadavers
had been mutilated by removal of face, genitals, eyes, parts from the stomic,
rectum, thyroids, etc. The morgues were immediately investigated by the
police, but nothing could be placed on the employees. There were reduced
staff at that time of night, and the events occured in different areas. High
strangeness indeed. According to the Asst. ME, the incidents were
immediately concealed from the media and public. More than likely the reasons
were that there was no explanation, nor were the incidents going to be solved
in the near future. As an aside, there were also quite a few animal
mutilations that were occuring in New York and Connecticut, and once again no
solutions were forthcoming for these events.
The "Satanic explanation" was examined, and according to the reporting witness,
did not hold water.
