Schuessler even went to the place in question and took pictures of the burned road
Where are those pictures?
Where are those pictures?
Exactly! I've scoured UFO literature and websites, collecting as many original magazines or copies of original newspapers ask can find. Zero. The closest thing is a photo of the reenactment by Unsolved Mysteries, but nothing of the real thing. All the real photos are long distance shots of the roadway. No close ups of the UFO-damaged pavement.
Also, John Schuessler's book has an appendix of 80 or so pages of photos and documents. Plenty of room there and the perfect place for such a photo, but again, zero.
Where is the evidence that this document was ever "suppressed"?
In this case, these were pertinent documents that should have been included in the discussion of the case by the UFO researcher. Since it did not lend credibility to the case he ignored it in favor of other material. That kind of behavior is kosher for lawyers in court, but that's not how a scientific investigation is supposed to be run.

At some point after that event, Walt Andrus, the then head of MUFON was in Austin to discuss with our group the topic of UFOs in general. After his talk, I asked him about the Cash-Landrum case and what MUFON discovered about it. He said that they were told that the strange craft was from a secret project underway in the gulf from an aircraft carrier. And that explained why there were so many helicopters involved: they were carrier based. My understanding was that that point was one reason why the case was thrown out because the government proved that it could not have had that many 'copters in the air that night despite what the victims claimed. (Frankly, I don't think that they could have accurately counted over twenty 'copters buzzing around in the short period of time of the event given the circumstances and emotions.)
Oh dear , another one bites the dust ?
I can't see anything in that report which proves that the witnesses were lying about what they saw
Charles Russ Meyer began his TDH investigation by contacting Vickie Landrum on September 2, 1981. She gave him a brief description of events and suggested he contact John F. Schuessler, for further details. Meyer and two TDH associates met with Schuessler September 10th. Schuessler provided them with a detailed account of the events and the medical treatment given to Betty Cash.
John F. Schuessler seems to be a key player in the case acting almost like their agent , why did Vickie Landrum send the official investigation team to him for the full details when it was she that had the experience .
Schuessler soon became "a sort of rabbi" for the three friends. He obtained their medical records… "ANTI*MATTER" OMNI Magazine February 1982
Due to the late hour and the ladies emotional state they could not remember the exact location and could only state that they believed they saw the object on the straight portion of FR 1485 between the beer joint and some kind of highway warning sign
Second, we had the effects on the highway underneath it where the blacktop was actually melted to the point that the yellow line was actually swirled, the no-passing line. Third, we had burns on the trees on both sides of the road which would indicate the heating the people had.
The helicopters weren’t there initially but they came in.....The object was there several minutes before the helicopters arrived.
She noted there were a number of helicopters flying around the area .there was a bright flash and fire began falling from the sky
we started getting leads from people like Bill Moore that this may have been a device that flew from Los Alamos to Ellington Field which didn’t pan out at all.
Bill Moore later became a controversial figure within UFOlogy due to his involvement with a group of intelligence contacts known as ‘The Aviary’.

This new information does not reflect on the witnesses, just the investigator. Their truthfulness isa separate issue. What we may be looking at here is like P.T. Barnum finding a real unicorn...
