I just finished listening to Erica Luke's 3rd interview with former ranch security guy Chris Marx, and towards the very end he mentioned that someone has rented a house overlooking the ranch for a 'tourist experience'. Not sure if he was being facetious, didn't sound like it. Not sure if it's connected to the upcoming TV show, oddly enough that was never mentioned.
The accounts are interesting, a bit of a different perspective from what we've heard before. Here's a link to the 3rd interview:
If you are interested in the first two interviews, here's the first:
And the second:
My only real complaint is that he definitely has a bone to pick with others, and never lets you forget it.

Great show on Skinwalker. Three questions for Chris Marx.
1. Did he witness any UFO's?
2. The original owners mentioned seeing objects coming out of what appeared
to be an 'opening' in the air or sky. This 'opening' also appeared to have
a different sky than the current 'earth reality'. Did he ever witness this
phenomenon or know of anyone who witnessed this phenomenon?
3. Could he list specifically which aspects of the reporting from Knapp and Corbell that are

Hi Energy. So, answer to question #1 is yes. But only twice in 6 years. Neither time was good enough for a detailed description, which is why I am really talking about it. Question #2 is no.
Question number three is lengthy and you can read on either Erica Lukes FB page or on Ryan Skinner's Skinwalker Ranch FB page.
Thank you for your questions!

A ranch in Utah, known for decades as the site of bizarre encounters, became a living lab for the study.

Statement from a Senior Manager of BAASS
One of the major successes of BAASS was in adopting the novel approach of utilizing the human body as a readout system for dissecting interactions with the UFO phenomenon.
... The BAASS approach was to view the human body as a readout system for UFO effects by utilizing forensic technology, the tools of immunology, cell biology, genomics and neuroanatomy for in depth study of the effects of UFOs on humans.

Millionaire Searches for UFOs on Ranch in UTAH
Fort Duchesne Utah - The search for answers to life's greatest mysteries has led millionaire Robert M. Bigelow to an isolated cattle ranch in the heart of the Uintah Basin.
Here, far from the bright lights of his native Las Vegas, the real estate magnate hopes his team of scientists can unearth the roots of UFO folklore prevalent in this region since the 1950s.
Bigelow, easily the most prominent American financier in the paranormal research field, is convinced there is something to the weird stories told by the famiily of Terry Sherman.
Last July the Shermans broke years of silence and went public with bizarre tales of strange lights and UFOs on their 480 acre ranch.
Sherman said he and other members of his family had seen lights emerging from circular "doorways" that seemed to appear in mid-air, had three cows mutilated and several others disappear. The rancher also reported unusual soil impressions in the soil and circles of flattened grass in a pasture.
The Sherman's story appeared in the Deseret News and on a national radio broadcast. Bigelow met with the Shermans and negotiated to buy the ranchfor about $200,000.
The Sherman family has relocated to a smaller ranch 15 miles - far removed, they hope, from the disturbing occurrences they endured for 18 months.
Bigelow has erected an observation building and moved in a pair of scientists and a veterinarian. He has someone on the property 24 hours a day, recording anything out of the ordinary.
Officially, the research is being conducted by the National Institute for Discovery Science, which Bigelow formed last October. Among scientists involved is John B. Alexander, former director of non-lethal weapons testing at Los Alamos National Laboratories in New Mexico.
"Our approach is to do good, high-quality research using a standard scientific approach and do what we can to get hard data," Alexander said in a telephone interview from the institute's Las Vegas offices. "One of the missions of the institute is to make information widely available."
Bigelow declined an interview. Alexander would not provide details of how or why the research is being conducted.
Sherman, now employed by Bigelow to maintain the ranch, said he can no longer discuss the activity because of a nondisclosure agreement Bigelow had him sign.
Alexander said results of the study would be published in scientific journals and on the institute's Web page. Other research documents and information about the institute is available on the Internet at (www.accessnv.com...).
The secretive behavior concerns other UFO researchers, including Ryan Layton of Davis County and Chris O'Brien of Crestone, Colo. Both visited the ranch in July before Bigelow became involved.
"It's the most impressive case I've ever personally investigated," said O'Brien, author of "The Mysterious Valley" about UFOs in Colorado's San Luis Valley. "It should be public knowledge, and the public should be allowed some sort of involvement in any investigation."
The whole ordeal has been difficult for the Shermans, who say they lost money on the sale. Sherman said he was offered more money by a Colorado family and a local hunting club but did not want to put anyone at risk.
"It's just been a bad deal all the way around," he said. "All that's really redeeming is that you have some knowledge that a lot of people don't have, for what it's worth."
