More legitimization of the phenomenon:
“What is certain about the night of Oct. 11, 1973, is this: When Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker Jr. arrived at the sheriff's department in Pascagoula, Mississippi, they were frantic. They told authorities they had just been abducted by aliens. Each had a puncture wound in one arm. Police tried to catch them in a lie, but it didn't work. Both men later passed polygraph tests.”
I’m going to irritate some people with this... but maybe “To The Stars” and the whole “tic-tac” incident really forced some hands - now we have a monument to “Alien Abduction”.
Come a long way on this subject in a last few years...
At first, sheriff's investigators thought the men had just been drunk. Or lying. After interviewing the men, they left the room with a recorder secretly taping, hoping to catch the pair dropping the act once they left. But they didn't. They kept on talking about what they had seen and how scared they were.
He told the media he had passed out at the beginning of the whole affair and couldn't remember what happened.
"We did everything we knew to try to break their stories," Jackson County Sheriff's Capt. Glen Ryder told The Post in 1975. "If they were lying to me, they should be in Hollywood."
