WAKEFIELD, N.H. -- A Wakefield man has a mystery in his living room, an object that looks kind of a like a rock but not quite, which might have fallen
from the sky.
William McCarthy found the mysterious object that's about the size of a football and weighs about the same. But he said he can't figure out what it
is or from where it came.
"And after I started looking at it, I noticed all of the strange things that were in that lump," McCarthy said.
Some of the unusual features are a detailed leaf imprint on one side, and on the other side is a slash of what looks like red paint, but it won't

"We go back to the object in the pond, and guess what? It wasn't there," McCarthy said. "But there was this square hole the same size as the
object had been."
He said the object was so hot that it melted through 12 inches of ice. He never retrieved it and still wonders what it was.
Now, 31 years later, he's wondering the same thing about the new object. McCarthy said he took the object to the fire department Thursday morning to
make sure it wasn't radioactive. Firefighters tested it and gave it the all-clear.
