Aside from what others have mentioned as far as wether this story is real or not, the theory does sound interesting.
I can quite image that as the result of some experiment be it governmental or private, that there could indeed be some people living now who do not
appear to have aged a day for 30 odd years.
It would not be too big a jump to imagine that some such experiment intended for spying purposes could of gone awry causing some unforseen effects
such as pocket time, time bubbles or indeed isolated space time distorions that could have enveloped a person or persons within a given area making
them a sort of "non-event" in space-time and therefore not subject to the changes occuring through age etc.
To simplify, a person or persons trapped within such a distortiojn or field would become separted from the time stream and to them maybe a few seconds
would have passed while years had passed for those outside the distortion or field.
This is just a theoretical extrapolation on what the op suggested.
As far as the fusion x-ray lasers, well that is not an area i am familiar with so if anyone with expertise in the area can shed some light on the
validity of such a device please post.
