Fight over UFO photos pits family versus newspaper


www.katu.com

MCMINNVILLE, Ore. – Two shots of a flying saucer over McMinnville are some of the most debated pieces of Oregon history.

Paul and Evelyn Trent took the pictures in 1950, and now their children are trying to get the negatives returned.

But the negatives are in the hands of the McMinnville News-Register newspaper, who believes they should be part of a permanent historic display in Yamhill County.

The story of how this fight developed begins on the Trent Farm more than 50 years ago.

Evelyn Trent was feeding rabbits, saw something strange in the sky and hollered for her husband, who grabbed his camera and started shooting. And then the saucer was gone.

The photos were printed in the local newspaper, which sold thousands of copies across the country.

Interesting article, but be aware of the Breaking News Guidelines for posting, which including giving your opinion or editorial commentary on the article you cite.

Something like this (example):


The family owns those negatives, so if the newspaper isn't going to return them, they should at least pay compensation. They've done a lot of studies on these photos and despite best efforts have not been able to find any evidence of strings or wires or other fakery.

In fact, maybe they should be required to pay a nominal rental fee. If taken to court it might be a tidy sum, especially since these are one of the few examples of photographic evidence which not only included the negatives in the submission, but also survived close inspection by computer analysis.


Thanks for your submission.

I read the article. I believe they belong to the family. However, I do not understand what difference it makes. Are the negatives really that valuable? The pics have been printed all over the place. At least with the newspaper, they are in pretty safe hands. Maybe the family just wants them for sentimental value?

Either way, they should go back to the family.

they should send the police in to recover there property..if they refuse to hand over property that they have no right to hold then it is up to the courts to prosecute..it wont cost the family anything and in fact could cost the paper thousands in lawyer fees....
