It is a story unlike many we have ever seen. It began with one South Florida woman, and has now grown to involve dozens of people. People claiming to have bugs coming out of their bodies. Dont believe it? Then sit back and watch Patrick Fraser's special investigation, Body Bugs.
It seems clear: a bug. And if you are amazed, look at this. Every morning, when Kathy wakes up, the bed is covered with what appears to be pepper.
Jose put the pepper looking substance under a microscope. It's amplified 100 times and is shocking.
Jose: "You can see it there, how it's moving. When it's all done, it just retracts right back into the cocoon, and again it's just a piece of dirt if you didn't know any better."
At first doctors told Kathy she was, to put it politely, off the deep end. This one wrote she needed psychiatric help.
Jose: "We are all crazy and these pictures are figments of our imagination, and somehow we're able to photograph delusions."
Other doctors examined Kathy and watched as she contstantly scratched her itching body and told her they couldnt find anything wrong. Jose is convinced they are afraid to admit bugs are living in her body.
Jose: "Most doctors don't want to be labeled with that diagnosis, because they get blackballed from the entire medical community."
Jose then sent slides to Harvard University and the CDC. Both had the same conclusion.
Jose: "One person said yes, they're parasites, they're anthropods, but they don't think that they're coming from you. You're just being bitten."

I'm in south florida and I've never heard of anything like that happening.
The lady is worried about this being the next plague, maybe she ought to think of quarantining herself.
You may find it hard to believe, but right now it's impossible to cure because no one knows what's causing it. They do know however, the number of people getting hit with this mysterious disease is soaring. In a follow up special assignment report, the nightteam's Patrick Fraser speaking to more people who are desperately seeking help.
Greg Smith was a pediatrician near Atlanta until Morgellons hammered his body.
Dr. Greg Smith: "I have videos that I've made myself of fibers coming out of my own skin working themselves out and coming out of intact skin."
The thoughtful, well-spoken doctor has had to battle his own medical colleagues as he battles the disease that is destroying his body. Here leading a protest in front of the Centers for Disease Control with signs that read, 'It's Morgellons, it's real and it's spreading.' What the signs don't say? It can kill the people it infects.
