One of the landmark cases of UFO abduction occurred on November 30, 1989, in Manhattan.The time of the sightings was approximately 3:15 in the morning , N.Y. The case centers around one Linda Napolitano, who claims to have been abducted from her closed apartment window from her 12th floor,into a waiting UFO by the "grays," and subjected to medical procedures.

The case was pieced together by the means of regressive hypnosis, witness statements, and the actual passing of time, as her mind began to heal itself.

As she was going to sleep she had felt a 'presence' and paralysis creeping over her and she saw a small black-eyed figure. She threw something at him and her arms were paralyzed as a result. Her next memory was of being on an "examination table." Question - what had been "blocked" by/from her memory? She had floated through a closed window and was lifted into a "craft." At the end of the "abduction" she was dropped onto her bed. She got up then and found she could not rouse her children. She thought that they weren't breathing. Her husband and children seemed to be switched off.

"I'm standing up on nothing. And they take me out all the way up, way above the building. Ooh, I hope I don't fall. The UFO opens up almost like a clam and then I'm inside," said 41 year old (at the time) Linda.

Linda's niece who is a surgeon took an X-Ray of Linda's nostrils. An object was found. It appears to be a shank and two spirals. It is in her right nostril. The night, after the X-Ray had been done, blood came streaming out of Linda's nostril and when she was X-Rayed again the object was no longer there. It had been taken by the aliens during the night!

There was a separate incident of Linda's right nostril bleeding. And this time not only did she bleed, but both her sons and their father and her son's friend, all from the right nostril at the same time on the same night.


Eventually,two men would be identified as bodyguards of senior United Nations statesman, Javier Perez de Cuellar, who was visiting Manhattan at the time of the abduction. The bodyguards claimed that Cuellar was "visibly shaken" as he watched the abduction. The three men claimed that they saw a woman being floated through the air, along with three small beings, into a large flying craft.
United Nations statesman,Javier Perez de Cuellar


"There was an oval-shaped object hovering over the top of the apartment building two or three blocks up from where we sat."We didn't know where it came from. It happened too fast. Its lights turned from a bright reddish orange to a whitish blue coming out of the bottom. Green lights rotated round the edge of the saucer. A little girl or woman wearing a white gown sailed out of the window in a fetal position - and then stood in mid-air in this beam of light. I could see three of the ugliest creatures I ever saw.

I don't know what they were. They weren't human.

"Their heads were out of proportion, very large heads with no hair. Those buggers were escorting her into the craft. My partner screamed, 'We have got to get them.' We tried to get out of the car but couldn't. After the woman was escorted in, the oval turned reddish orange again and whisked off.""

The additional eyewitnesses stated that they too, had seen the abduction that night from the Brooklyn Bridge. The witnesses (one of which was one Janet Kimbell?, or Kimble) thought they were watching the filming of a scene from an upcoming Sci-fi film.


Would Cuellar go Public? :

It would be some time before Hopkins discovered the name of the United Nations statesman. When he did, he knew that if he could get a man of such distinction to come forward with his testimony, it would be the smoking gun of alien abduction, and put Ufology into the hands of the scientific community at last. Hopkins' wish would not come true. Although it has been said that Cuellar met privately with Hopkins, he would not go public.:

Skeptics, as you would expect, dismiss the case without offering any evidence to support their theories, except the commonly used statement, "it can't happen, so therefore it didn't."

In a recent French magazine, La Gazette Forteenne, Issue # 2, 2003, Linda gives an interview that does add some new facts about her case. She mentions a new witness, a New York Post truck driver, who saw the abduction from the Brooklyn Bridge. No name is given

There had also been rumors of the abduction causing a small traffic jam on the intersection between South Street and Catherine Slip. Now, there is a witness who saw the stopped traffic at approximately the same time as the abduction.

At the New York Post complex, a well-known journalist leaves a nearby bar. Too drunk to drive, he asks one of the drivers if he can drop him home. The driver answers that the lorries cannot move because there are several limos blocking the street. He even suspected that the big boss could be paying a visit to the newspaper."

What do you Ats members think of this case?

Flag & Star for you Guns

Well researched post.
I do remember this incident being on tv in the UK sometime back. They re-enacted the incident (including special effects).
A few witnesses had their profile blacked out and voice disguised for fear of ridicule (their words!)but they described it exactually as you have posted it.

I expect to hear such things as 'Sleep paralysis' etc from some of our resident people here, however it does not explain the witness testimony!

Good on yer!

I too am looking, meantime I found this:

The man claimed his car had stalled two blocks away and that he and two men with him had witnessed the whole event about 3:30 in the morning. This man, who wrote Linda and Hopkins about the event, turned out to be the United Nations Secretary General Javier Perez de Cuellar . Perez de Cuellar was in New York City at the time traveling from a heliport into the city with his two secret service men.
After further investigation, Hopkins determined that Perez de Cuellar was not a witness, but had been abducted as well. This fact was confirmed by Linda’s son who identified the Secretary General from twenty photos of men shown to him by Hopkins, as the man who was with him and comforted him during the abduction. Hopkins contacted Perez de Cuellar in person about the letters he had sent to Linda and himself, and de Cuellar didn’t deny his involvement.

The story gets more interesting! :

"He was working with a number of other world leaders to come out with exactly what CSETI is attempting to do now and he was made to disappear, as it were, in a faked or hoaxed abduction attempt. Then he was told on board the craft that he should cease and desist from any further attempt to bring this information out. If he and the other leaders didn’t, all of them would be abducted . . . Bud Hopkins thinks it was an abduction. It was not an abduction"


That page is worth a new thread on its own!

What a great thread! Thank you so much for sharing this with us! So, um, not to sound rude, but what are we supposed to do now? Or were you just sharing? I find it REALLY interesting about the craft being described as opening up like a clam, and the whole fetal position thing. I've heard that before somewhere...
Is there any guess as to why the subject was picked? And the sons friend? Was it a "destroy the evidence, they know!" thing??

Oh, and the above was not sarcasm, serious question indeed... ( about what we are supposed to do now) Jason

Hi jason!
It is a good question!
you could think about taking one of these out!!

You can get it here:

or help research into similarities of other abductions, see if you can find any leaks or a conspiracy of cover ups.

A good place to start? :

I find alien abductions very interesting and enjoy reading them, so there's little point shouting at me about the 2nd link

I also remember watching this on TV, (possibly Sightings) so have just been looking for it on the net

Searching I found these interesting sites:
It claims that :

After further investigation, Hopkins determined that Perez de Cuellar was not a witness, but had been abducted as well. This fact was confirmed by Linda’s son who identified the Secretary General from twenty photos of men shown to him by Hopkins, as the man who was with him and comforted him during the abduction. Hopkins contacted Perez de Cuellar in person about the letters he had sent to Linda and himself, and de Cuellar didn’t deny his involvement.

Another site which is a good read, discredits this story with interesting points, is here:

I have never seen this case before - very interesting indeed.

It appears there is a clear link between most abductions in their methodology.

However, without getting off track with the thread, what do you guys suppose is the abduction selection process for the ET's, given that they appear not to discriminate who they take (I.e. country, race, whether you are rich or poor, live in high rise or ground floor apartment)?

Surely, if they just want samples of blood, tissue etc, why not just plant themselves in some town in western China, or the D.R. of Congo where they would not be seen or formally investigated - why one of the largest cities in the west?

Why abduct high line officials and risk a more validated disclosure of their existence - is this what they want us to believe? Is there a dual purpose of such abductions therefore? (questions, questions, questions)!!

Just a thought - possibly for a new thread completely but worthy of some attention in light of the concept of abductions (IMHO).

An intelligence operation to discredit ... United Nations Secretary General Javier Perez de Cuellar ... who was also abducted with Cortile?

posted on May, 13 2008 @ 01:01 AM
I do not understand the Cortile bit, however I too have experienced this same phenomena, at age 8 I had a huge looking chunk of material blow out of my nose one morning, also followed by a nose bleed.

My Mom was always amazed at this memory. The chunk was greyish looking and as big around as a large red grape. It was more square looking than round.

Having watched as my family and years later friends go into this un waking sleep the experiences I had were solo.

It culminated when finally one night sitting watching red lights fill the sky in the distance with friends, they decided to leave and go check it out. I decided to stay and go inside to connect with the inhabitants of the craft.

Surrounding myself with candles, breathing deeply.

Sitting awake and aware yet relaxed, a group of these little short dark beings began circling me. Male and female from their energy and dress, I opened my eyes to see them, and saw them even with eyes closed.

Watching them come up within inches of my face one by one and then laughingly dancing away always maintaining the circle.

Soon in came the Doctor. He and his assistant were working on my right side and as he the Doctor stuck a 14 inch metal rod into my body via the area between the middle ribs, I then began to move slightly.

The Doctor asked me if it was getting uncomfortable in a gentle but deep voice, and I told him "No, I can feel it, but it is as if it is not happening to me." He laughed and said "Good" with a little chuckle "all is going well then."

A few moments later it was over and he told me that I had 'Graduated" and that I would no longer be receiving it.

He and his assistant stepped back into another dimension, and sadness grew over me. At that point the little beings all came back dressed in celebration clothes of some sort (hard to describe) and danced one more time smiling and basically saying good bye.

One by one they left. And again I was alone.

Jumping up to go look at my side, there was conclusively a single drop of blood coming from a small incision which had been cauterized.


I never understood why people have such adverse experiences with alien encounter's. Each one I have had has been divine and enjoyable, all except one...

wow, incredible post antar, that's...awesome yet terrifying. And great thread. I don't have much to add information wise. I don't know anything about UFO's (the sci-fi, history and discovery channels don't give this subject too much attention) nor do i have any UFO experiences. But i will be keeping tabs on this thread though!!

Awesome case, I remember reading about it when i was kid, heh I found it damn creepy and was just afraid to go to sleep for some nights. Still weird, so many witnesses and this case pops up so rarely. This is one of those cases, that give me a little belief in the existance of ET life.

Hello Guns very interesting story --I was in New York visiting some relatives when this happend and was watching on the local news which did a brief report on it. Unfortunately I had to leave two days later but what I did here from a friend of my family was that there were some investigators interviewing the neighbors in that building and surrounding area and that they seemed very government type after that nothing

Small details of the case also provoked questions. Why had Richard and Dan written to Hopkins before they contacted Linda? They knew the location of her apartment but would have had no reason to think Hopkins was involved. A most amusing detail was that Linda had not reported the kidnappings or the attempted murder to law enforcement authorities, even though she made the allegations publicly in front of media representatives and hundreds of other people at the 1992 MUFON [Mutual UFO Network] convention.... Her failure to make the allegations official made the case extremely dubious....

We toured Linda's neighborhood in order to become more familiar with the location of the events. Her apartment complex had a guardhouse that was manned 24 hours a day, and video cameras were positioned at various locations around the complex. We discovered that the New York Post had a loading dock two blocks away that was open until 5:00 a.m. We talked with the guards and people at the loading dock and others in the vicinity, but no one knew anything about the UFO event....

The meeting [with Hopkins and some of his associates] revealed much about Hopkins' methods and the mentality of ufology's leaders. We asked Hopkins if he had checked with the apartment complex guards or with the New York Post loading dock personnel to see if they remembered seeing a UFO. He hadn't. We learned that Hopkins didn't even know the weather conditions the night of the abduction. He had done nothing to verify the most rudimentary facts. During questioning, Linda admitted that she had lied about several aspects of the case, and Penelope Franklin, one of Hopkins' closest collaborators, staunchly supported her in doing so.

[Coinvestigator Jospeh] Stefula brought along a colleague who had years of experience in dignitary protective services. He made an independent, detailed presentation on motorcades carrying important political figures. He explained that in such operations checkpoints are established, and if they are not passed on time, several authorities are notified. If even one car stalls, a whole network of people is informed. At the end of his presentation he suggested that Hopkins ask Richard and Dan the meaning of several specialist terms. If they were whom they claimed, they would know the definitions. Hopkins apparently never asked them the meaning of the words.

Some have objected that the hoax explanation is not plausible because there is no reasonable motive for such an extended effort. This is a common refrain, and in my investigations of other paranormal deceptions, I've often heard the questions "Why would anyone perpetrate a hoax? What motive could there be?" After a few experiences investigating them, I discovered that motives are often difficult to discern and comprehend.

I admit that the motives in the Napolitano case are a mystery, but some speculation might ease concerns about them. Perhaps Linda began with a relatively innocent tall tale that got out of hand.... As the case became known, Linda was mentioned in magazines, invited to conferences, appeared on TV, was provided a bodyguard, and even dined with royalty (the Prince of Liechtenstein was friendly with Hopkins)....

Looks like the Love RH positive blood types does not matter race.. or location.. Now on why they took the UN personell it is obvious... they were going to talk about what they were witnessing, and like mafia style they took them to show them that they have no real power and will be abducted eliminated if they go public... it has worked so far.. hasn't it?

Hi Mark,
Thanks for the George P Hansen investigation notes.

I would also draw your attention to another article found here:

I will not quote the whole thing but it certainely worth a read, and being a 'conspiracy' site, interpretation is open to the readers on the site.

One of the unexpected benefits of the Napolitano case is that it provides
remarkable illumination of the mentality of a prominent authority on UFOs.
Because of his influence and control over a significant amount of popular UFO literature, this is of particular consequence.

If we accept Linda's claim, Richard and Dan are menaces not only to Linda but to society at large. Yet Clark vigorously opposes reporting them to the authorities. He seems to believe that he has special insight into the world political situation that justifies his position.

Neither Clark nor Hopkins has provided even minimal evidence for such a notion. That being the case, there may be a plausible explanation for their behavior. They imply that they possess secret knowledge of a conspiracy within the highest levels of the world's governments; such thinking can be termed "grandiose"; the word "paranoid" might even apply. Ironically, Clark's previous writings display a loathing of and revulsion toward much tamer conspiratorial speculations. Clark's "Torquemada" article is again emotional and self-laudatory, and I urge those interested to obtain a copy in order to verify that. After such a review, the reader will be in a better position to assess Clark's mental state and deduce the plausible cause of his behavior.

methink he doth protesteth too much!

I would also wonder (being a conspiracy site) if there is a connection between NASA and George P Hansen (are we talking about the same person!!??)
