There`s still too much suspicion raised when it comes to these various deaths of UFO investigators. It is to frequent and they are too many. And this has been going on since 1947. And still does. It’s all from death by gunshot to the head. Death by probable poisoning. Death by alleged suicides, Death by strangulation. Deaths by implantation of radioactive isotopes, Deaths by implantation of deadly viruses. The list goes on and on.
I Remember how I got into this topic regarding UFO investigators mysterious deaths. It started when I read the first reports 1981 of the late astronomer Dr. M.K. Jessup? He was the first to reveal details of the famous Philadelphia Experiment, he died in 1959 in Coral Gables, Florida, an apparent suicide. And now many years later I still keep an eye on whats happening to our investigators.
Yet the recent suspicious deaths of UFO investigators John E Mack, Lloyd Pie, Alistair Beckham, Mr.X, Uyrangê Hollanda, Phil Schneider, Ronald Rummel, Dr. Alan J Hynek, Danny Casolaro, Dr Karla Turner, Ron Johnson, Con Routine, Ann Livingston as well as the deaths of a host of researchers in the past and many more, only add emphasis to a reality with which many of the more aware UFOIogists are now quite familiar. Not only is UFO research a potentially dangerous area, but the life span of the average serious investigator falls far short compared to the national average.
Because if you investigate this you will find that, many UFO researchers working on their research in the 1970s and 1980s died under some very mysterious circumstances, and many things points towards that may have been killed. This is also the conclusion reached by an amateur astronomer, a former U.S. government adviser Timothy Hood.
Hood made this statement at an international conference in Amsterdam dedicated to search for extraterrestrial intelligence. And I believe his statement to be true. But for all the researchers trying to find extraterrestrial life and revealing the truth it’s still unpleasant. Hood’s conclusion was prompted by a 30-year study of this topic.
“In a relatively short time, 25 people who worked in the space field died for various reasons. When discovered this tragic phenomenon, seriously believed that it had to do with aliens. According to Timothy Hood, these deaths were not accidental, but rather, were the work of special services that eliminated the experts because they knew too much.”
Lets take a look at some of these unusual “deaths” allegedly done by suicide?
Captain Uyrangê Hollanda – Brazil
During the months of September through December 1977, the Brazillian Air-Force under the command of a Captain Uyrangê Hollanda, was sent to the island of Colares to investigate a series of incidents in which over 80 people reported being attacked by beams of light from UFO’s, paralyzing two of them and leaving puncture and burn marks on their skin.
The investigation was codenamed “Operation Saucer”. This operation collated over 15 hours of film, 500 photos, and hundreds of documents with detailed drawings and interviews with over 3000 witness’.
The files were to remain classified by the Brazillian Government until 1997, when UFO investigator’s A J Gevaerd and Marco Petite of UFO Magazine were allowed partial access. They were also contacted by the then retired Cpt Hollanda who gave them a vivid recollection of the whole series of events.
In 1997, two decades after the operation, Captain Uyrangê gave an interview to researchers Ademar José Gevaerd (editor of UFO Magazine, founder and president of the CBPDV (Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas de Discos Voadores, or Brazilian Center of Flying Saucer Research), national director of the Mutual UFO Network) and Marco Antônio Petit. In this interview, he recounted his experiences living alongside his men.
Some three months after the interview, he was found dead hanging by his own belt.”
In early August, 1993, Ron Rummell (also known as Creston) was found dead in a Portland, Oregon park. He had been shot through the mouth and was supposedly holding a gun in his hand. The police labeled it a suicide and cremated the body the next day without performing an autopsy or notifying relatives.
Allegedly having shot himself in the mouth with a pistol. Friends say, that no blood was found on the pistol barrel and the handle of the weapon was free of fingerprints. In addition, according to information now circulating, the suicide note left by the deceased was written by a left-handed person. Rummel was right-handed. Perspiration on the body smelled like sodium pentothal.
Sverdlovsk Case – Russia
This entire alleged incident was actually reported on a 1998 TNT special, “The Secret KGB UFO Files,” and hosted by former James Bond actor Roger Moore. The program showed startling filmed segments of the alleged UFO crash — as well as several minutes of the supposed autopsy of the dead alien. According to records the UFO crashed in 1969. I believe that this case is true. But I don’t believe the actual autopsy was genuine. This was probably added later and had really nothing to do with the Sverdlovsk crash.
And In April and May 1979, an unusual anthrax epidemic occurred in Sverdlovsk, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Soviet officials attributed it to consumption of contaminated meat. U.S. agencies attributed it to inhalation of spores accidentally released at a military microbiology facility in the city. Epidemiological data show that most victims worked or lived in a narrow zone extending from the military facility to the southern city limit. Farther south, livestock died of anthrax along the zone’s extended axis.
Many scientist allegedly also died during this outbreak. So the “TNT special” crew had a hard time getting in touch with several of the scientists who dealt with the craft. And It is now concluded that the escape of an aerosol of anthrax pathogen at the military facility caused the outbreak. Convenient?
U.S. Secretary of Defense
May 1949, the life of the first U.S. Secretary of Defense, James Forrestal, came to an end when he plunged to his death, from a window of the Bethesda, Maryland, National Naval Medical Center. Rumors abound that Forrestal’s classified, government work gave him unique access to the U.S. Government’s most guarded UFO secrets of all – secrets that Forrestal was intent on disclosing to the world, had his untimely and suspicious death not got in the way.
Lets also take a look at Alaistair Beckham and his fellow colleagues as yet an example. Were these scientists victims of a corrupt defense industry? Have they been espionage pawns? Are the deaths nothing more than an extraordinary coincidence? I don’t think so..
Did 22 British SDI Researchers really ALL Commit Suicide?
This is from the “Sheldon list.” The famous American writer Sidney Sheldon, working on his novel “The End of the World”, drew attention to a series of mysterious deaths among British specialists developing space weapons.
Fifty-year-old Alistair Beckham was a successful British aerospace- projects engineer. His specialty was designing computer software for sophisticated naval defense systems. Like hundreds of other British scientists, he was working on a pilot program for America’s Strategic Defense Initiative better known as Star Wars. And like at least 21 of his colleagues, he died a bizarre, violent death.
DOSSIER OF DEATH
AUTO ACCIDENT–Professor Keith Bowden, 45, computer scientist, Essex University. In March 1982 Bowden’s car plunged off a bridge, into am abandoned rail yard. His death was listed as an accident.

ELECTROCUTION–Alistair Beckham, 50, software engineer, Plessey. In August 1988 Beckham’s lifeless body was found in the garden shed behind his house. Bare wires, which ran to a live main, were wrapped around his chest. Now suicide note was found, and police habe not ruled out foul play.
ASPHYXIATION–Andrew Hall, 33, engineering manager, British Aero- space. In September 1988 Hall was found dead in his car, asphyxiated by fumes from a hose that was attached to the tail pipe. Friends said he was well liked, had everything to live for. Verdict: Suicide.
When you collect the information and put together in these cases, you can clearly see that there are a surprising huge number of ufologists who have died in the most strange ways and circumstances since the 1950s. Prominent activist Stephen Bassett, supports the idea that the U.S. government has regularly murdered innocent citizens who have tried probing into UFO cases like Roswell or who have tried to get the Government to reveal the truth about UFOs.” And if you look at the latest headlines in this area, there are no exceptions.

“A plane supposedly shot down by the U.S. military is believed to have been carrying fragments of a flying saucer”
