The Peace of God to all that belong to the light,
Dear Readers,

The case that this thread refers can be nothing, but until not alternative reasonable explanation can be found by the authorities may be something meaningful for the UFO community.

The event in question occurred in a place that is located not so far from Philadelphia, but In New Jersey State, it is the Wharton State Forest, an area that is well known by many people that want to escape from the city and look for a place to breath pure air and find good entertainment in direct contact with the wild life.

Wharton Forrest, nevertheless, has also its own History of strange paranormal phenomena since centuries ago, registering a lot of sightings and unexplained events that remain in mystery.

1735 to our days: Wharton is the territory of the legend of a beast known as the Jersey Devil, a creature that initially was considered an Indian myth by the Quarkers, but became one of the most feared issues in the region on colonial times. Only the legend Sasquatch of the Rocky mountains resembles it in America.

Although some of the legends around this being refer it as the product of some ritual of witchery occurred in Leeds Point, NJ, during the XVIII th century, an earliest account tells that a group of Lanape Indians who went in hunt of the Jersey Devil became one by one each of the men disappeared, suggesting that it was much older in the region, kind of strange real paranormal phenomenon.

paranormalghostsociety.org...

en.wikipedia.org...

In the last 260 years or so, there have been around 2000 sightings of it, in general with hearing of eerie noises/wails in the forests.

Over the years the Jersey Devil has been called by a number of names, "Hoodle-Doodle Bird", "Wozzle Bug" and the "Leeds Devil".

Joseph Bonaparte, former King of Spain and brother of Napoleon, made a sighting of the Jersey Devil while hunting on his estate in the early 1800s.

Sightings included one in 1870 by a Long Beach fisherman who said he saw the Jersey Devil serenading a mermaid.

The best known sightings however were in January 1909 when Councilman E.P. Weeden of Trenton claimed to have been awoken by flapping wings outside his bedroom window. The Councilman said he found cloven footprints in the snow and several other instances of similar footprints were reported in Trenton at the time. Hundreds, if not thousands, of other people also claimed to have seen the Devil within a week or so of the Councilman's "sighting" and news of the multiple sightings were reported in local papers. The January 1909 sightings were not limited to New Jersey...there were reported sightings across the river in Pennsylvania and some sightings in Delaware as well.

In November 1951, a group of children were allegedly cornered by the Devil at the Duport Clubhouse in Gibbstown. The creature bounded away without hurting anyone but reports claimed that it was spotted by dozens of witnesses before finally vanishing again.

In 1978 two teenage boys were ice-skating near Chatsworth in the Barrens and smelled an odor like "dead fish" and saw two red eyes staring at them. They didn't stay around to investigate, but claimed they had encountered the Jersey Devil.

In 1987, in Vineland an aggressive German Shepherd in this region was found torn apart and the body explosion upon. the body was located 25 feet from the chain which had been hooked to him. Around the body were strange tracks that no one could identify.

In 1993 a forest ranger named John Irwin was driving along the Mullica River in southern New Jersey. He was startled to find the road ahead of him blocked by the Jersey Devil. He described it as being about six-feet tall with horns and matted black fur. Irwin stated that he and the creature stared at one another for several minutes before the monster finally turned and ran into the forest.

July 12th , 1928 : The Mexican aviation pioneer Emilio Carranza crashed on that day, while attempting to fly his Ryan Brougham airplane, the Mexico Excelsior, non-stop from New York to Mexico City, final leg of a historic goodwill flight to the United States.The monument, installed with funds donated by Mexican schoolchildren, depicts a falling eagle of Aztec design. Every July on the Saturday nearest the anniversary of his crash (second Saturday in July) at 1:00 p.m. he is honored at the monument site by local residents and representatives from the Mexican consulates in New York City and Philadelphia.

At age 22, on May 24–25, 1928, he set the record for the third longest non-stop solo flight by flying 1,875 miles (3000 km) from San Diego, California to Mexico City in 18.5 h. His safe arrival completed the longest non-stop flight by a Mexican.

Carranza took off after dark during a break in thunderstorms in the New York region. While flying over the Pinelands of southern New Jersey amidst thunderstorms, he crashed into the woods. Investigators from Fort Monmouth conducted the accident probe to determine what happened. They were able to determine the engine throttle was closed and the spark lever was in the advanced position. This showed he was attempting to land, not conclusive cause of the accident was established.

BATSTO - April 22, 1999: A local high school teacher who had thirty minutes of missing time enrooting to work. She had a doctorate in a scientific field and is quite perplexed by her experience. She drove to school each morning from the New Jersey shore through portions of the Wharton State Forest on Route 542. She reached a forested area near Batsto at 7:00 AM driving at 55 mph without any problems. She entered an area of relatively denser forest and lost any memory of the next 45 minutes of her life. The next 8 miles of road is relatively straight with few places to turn or become lost and is an easy ten minute drive. When she came up to the Route 206, intersection, she realized something was wrong and looked at her watch and it was now 7:45 AM. A ten minute drive had unexplainably taken 45 minutes. She arrived late for work. The 30 minutes of missing time remains unexplained.

Unfortunately he's been found. Posted by the NJ State Park Police 3/14. Condolences, his family must be devastated.

The body pulled out of the Mullica River on Saturday is that of a missing Pennsylvania man, authorities said.
New Jersey State Police spokesman Lt. Brian Polite said the body, found by two fishermen in Washington Township in Burlington County, was identified as John Kohlbecker.
He was reported missing on Feb. 14 after last being spotted on surveillance video at a ShopRite in Bridgeton on Feb. 11. He was stopped by local police in Buena Borough that same day.
Have you seen them? 29 kids reported missing from NJ
Stained clothing believed to Kohlbecker’s had been found along the Mullica River while his 1995 Toyota Camry was found in the Green Bank State Forest Station in Wharton State Forest in Washington Township.
Police had described Kohlbecker as an “at risk” individual.

Police said the cause of death was likely hypothermia drowning and does not appear suspicious.

So coincidentally, the cops were reportedly the last people to see this man alive?

Dear Caver78

The case is not even solved for the authorities, the kind of the death is determined but not why it happened ? so there are still a lot of questions without answer.

Why he abandoned his car?, where it is clear he was safer and also he was better protected of the environment?

why he didn't call asking help to anybody?

He was a well educated person, so he was by sure carrying a cellular phone with him. Also why he walked away from the highway where it was likely to be seen easier by other cars or the guards of the forest?

The location of the body is important, but that does not explain why a person that with good IQ might do something absurd.

Was he looking for help or something else, perhaps unusual, attracted his attention a lot in such a way that he decided to do something extremely risky that under normal circumstances nobody else might do?

His decision to do a walk in such an isolated an uninhabited place far from the highway is not logical, it is absolutely out of any safeness or emergency protocol.

Who is going to swim in a river in the coldest month of the Winter? was he trying to escape from somebody or something?


Thanks,

There isn't a time given for the police stop, there is a time given for him being on camera at a convenience store around 2am? He'd left work early saying he was sick. Without a time for the police stop thinking the police had anything to do with it is a reach.

Google his name, you'll find the same info I did. Some of it is here...

I don't know why he did what he did. I agree it's odd to go swimming in Feb in the river in the woods, but it appears this is what happened. Maybe depression?
I'm sure his family wants answers too....I feel for them.


Thank You for highlighting his case, tho...at least you cared!

I quoted from the snippet you provided from the link you brought…

That he was reported missing and the police stopped him the same day is quite surely coincidental…

Dear intrptr,

if the police stopped him before that same day with more reason he must anticipate that something wrong could happen with his car.

He ought to approach a service station in the highway soon after , or at least take care to have his cell charged and ready to affront an emergency, a lot of people in his case also would have called a friend, relative or technical service to help him.

Again why his body into a river? that is not even logical , it is the most unlikely place to go in such kind of situation.

Only a person in huge panic that felt attacked by something might ran far from the car in the middle of night at winter.

Thanks,

The Angel of Lightness

Correction, he was at the convenience store at 2:30 pm, cops pulled him over at 9:30pm for a broken taillight.

I've been trying to get to the original news stories, but since this was in Feb, it's proving difficult. I don't usually cite FB as a source!!! Maybe you will have better luck than me?

Apparently lots of missing people, and lots of body parts found in PA. Geez!!!

Says this is still under investigation. Which is why getting more info is difficult?





Investigators say the cause of death was drowning and hypothermia.
A fisherman in Washington Township spotted Kohlbecker's body on Saturday. A state police spokesman has said it appeared that the body "had been in the water for a little while."
The circumstances surrounding his death remain under investigation.

Why the car that was seen leaving with no problems from Philadelphia suddenly experienced a kind of electrical failure while crossing Wharton State Forest, as it seems it might happend too , almost a century ago ,to the airplane of the so world famous Mexican pilot?

If he was sick and coincidentally the car had a malfunctioning the logic dictates that he must call for help instead to walk out.

A car stuck aside of the highway without lights is easy target by an attack of a creature, but there are no signals of to be killed by a predator.

If he left soon of his job why he was transiting the park at almost 10 pm? Because the cops interrogated him at 9.30 pm isn't it?

He appears in a store camera at 2.30 pm so he had already shopped all he needed.

if he departs from philly at lets say 5 pm or sooner why he was still in wilderness so late ? instead to enroute to home being so sick?

Anybody knows that it takes less than 3 hours to cross all New Jersey from Philly to NYC!

Another case of missing time like the school teacher of 1999?

Thanks

No electrical failure of car was reported.
What was reported is his one of his taillights was out. This is very common this time of year after a winter of cold. A taillight is a single plugin lightbulb and very inexpensive.

Unfortunately this young man made some questionable decisions and paid with his life.

I think you are trying to connect things that have nothing to do with each other. The Pine Barrens in NJ certainly have been host to many odd occurrences, this just isn't one of them.

No evidence has been presented to indicate paranormal, alien or entity involvement.

Dear Caver78, I live in East Pennsylvania, close to the border with New Jersey, so I know very well the timing a traveler or a driver takes to
run such a distance.

To travel in a car from Philadelphia to the point he was found by the officers when he was still alive normally it only takes around an hour, if you are driving, probably 15 to 20 minutes more in a bus . That suggests he must departed from Philly at least after 8pm, but he left soon that day because he claimed to be so ill, so what happened with 3 hours of his time?

That is an extremely long unjustified gap, don't you think so? .

Unexplainable Loss of time was the principal evidence that opened the door to the most famous case of close encounter and abduction in 1960s: Betty and Bernie Hill.



The police talked with him, in a simple talk they must check by sure his mental condition , if he was severely depressed it was easily detectable in that talk, also if he was intoxicated or drugged.

If the car didn't have any electric failure nobody that is sick and sane would never have abandoned it in wild winter for no reason, to take a bath in a frozen river!

Evidently there is something really important missing in this story, a huge mysterious or at least still undetected element, possible a factor that gives sense to otherwise mad decisions.

What is that strange substance present in so many stains found in his clothing? how about other of his belongings that are also stained? They have not yet found explanations for that, and that is solid evidence of something, if time loss does not suffice for you.

www.nj.com...

Sorry but the lack of logic in between his decisions, the omissions of police agents , the huge loss of time, the absurd place the body was found, the empty car with no signals of violence, those mysterious stains in all his clothing and in other personal items are so much to be ignored and to happily claim that everything is pretty normal or natural.

Apologies if that was stated, I didn't see it.

If not and the police stopped him for unsafe vehicle they wouldn't let him continue.

Edit:

Broken taillight wouldn't cause an unsafe condition. Back to square one.

No problem Dear Intrptr,

Also it is intriguing that the car was found 3 days after he was seen last time, so the gap time I have already referred to could be not of just 3 hours, maybe we have here 72 hours or even more since the stained clothings were found on February 15th, so there is no evidence that he died the same day he was last seen.

This person was missing in a State Forest that is famous for a lot of paranormal events for about an entire month! his body was reported to be found by fishers in the Mujica River just on March 15th.

Dumped in a river, also suspicious. So we have an autopsy report, cause of death? I know it says "probably drowning", thats not very forensic, strictly speaking.

Why was his car parked at the forest station, if thats where they found it.

a reply to: intrptr

Yes, if he was assaulted, something that is unlikely because his car seems to be working well it is so rare that they didn't take the car, also that he was found so far from it, and he lost a lot of his clothing before to die.

He was not dumped in the River, the preliminary autopsy suggest he was still alive before to enter in the water, so it was not a corpse thrown to the stream, he entered on it by himself.

Again, it is possible he was escaping from something so dangerous or scarring that he preferred to even swim in frezzing waters before to give up.

Thanks

Dear Readers,

The official death date for John Kohlbecker's has been established by the authorities by March 12th 2016, although his body was found by fishermen two days later. That is the information posted in his obituary used to anounce his funeral.

We only can think that being official this date is supported in his autopsy.

If we consider the fact that was seen last time alive on February 11th of this year, it is clear that he was for about more than a month lost in Wharton State Forest.

How he survived all that time walking around in wilderness on winter?

There is still a criminal investigation in course about the origin of the mysterious stains on parts of his clothes found dispersed in the park when we were still in February.

Thanks,

The Angel of Lightness
