I've always liked the Flatwoods Monster case, it's one of the few of the more outlandish stories I believe and I think it has a lot to do with how odd the creature's description is. Not being immediately lumped in with the Nordics and Greys everyone else seems to see helps also as I think a lot of them are just copy cats.

This is also one of the few "out there" cases that I believe in. I'm not really sure why. Maybe the evidence seems pretty convincing...maybe they just tell a good story,..maybe it's just so creepy and bizarre and unique that I want to believe it.

For some years I thought this was just some absurd yarn. I think it's because I was inclined to believe the debunkers (who, as Stan Friedman points out, were a little less than intellectually rigorous in their investigations).
But over the years I've come to believe the people with firsthand experience--that is, the people directly involved. Of course there have been who-knows how many thousands of odd occurrences since then; and at some point you just have to start believing that something is going on.
My current belief is that it was perhaps some kind of device, or at least a projection of some kind of device meant to keep people away from the danger of the disabled disk....

I drive through there all the time on the way to WVU for football games. To this day there still is close to nothing in Flatwoods besides a couple truck stops and a fast food place or two. I just can't imagine the people back then making up a story like that. Its not really how the people of West Virginia are, especially back then.
Did they see an alien? Maybe. Did those people see something out of the ordinary? Absolutely.
PS The truck stops there sell Flatwoods Monster t-shirts

There was a lot of UFO activity in that particular time period. Feschino,s book SHOOT THEM DOWN
documents this activity in quite detail. I would highly recomend this read to any serious researcher.
There was an abnormaly high rate of "crashes" or "lost" fighter jets flown by experienced WWII and
Korean Veteran Pilots.The supposition was that there was an air war going on with alien craft and the Flatwood sighting was attributed to a "wounded" UFO forced to land. After it made the neccesary repairs it left the area but not without first leaving fear and terror with the residents of this small community. If you see the sketches that Feschino made by the description of the wittnesses, you can't help but to see our demon friends the reptilians?
