There are many UFO-related conspiracies, but some of the most intriguing ones involve the UFO investigators who died mysteriously.
10. Ron Rummel
Ron Rummel worked as an Air Force intelligence agent. In the years leading up to his death, he was the publisher of the UFO journal Alien Digest. Some of the topics discussed in this magazine revolved around the idea that aliens have indeed been present on Earth for a long time.
Rummel had received information from somewhere that these aliens had long-term plans to use humans as a source of food.
Many in the UFO community dismissed such ideas as too fantastical, but shortly thereafter, in August 1993, Rummel died. His death looked like a clear suicide in which he shot himself in the mouth.
However, doubts soon arose. Evidence included the absence of blood on the barrel of the gun and Rummel’s fingerprints on the handle. It was also revealed that the suicide note was written by a left-hander, while Rummel was right-handed.
It looked like Rummel was silenced because he “got too close to the truth.”
9. Ron Johnson
Ron Johnson was one of the ufologists who worked for the MUFON organization, the main UFO community in the United States. In June 1994, he was at a MUFON meeting in Texas when he suddenly collapsed to the floor, dead.
Officially, he was diagnosed with a stroke, but Johnson was only 43 years old, and shortly before that he underwent a complete medical examination, which did not reveal any problems with his vessels.
For eyewitnesses, his death looked especially terrible, because before falling, Johnson screamed in pain, and then his face turned red and blood gushed from his nose. And some of these people later claimed that it didn’t look like a stroke at all, but rather was the result of poisoning.
Moreover, there were eyewitnesses who saw that just before screaming and falling, Johnson took a sip from a can of soda, which was never found. These people wondered if something was smeared on the can or added to the drink itself that could have caused such a reaction.
8. John Murphy
John Murphy was not a direct UFO researcher, but a radio journalist who just happened to be in Kecksburg at the right time in December 1965, when the famous incident occurred with a likely UFO crash in these places.
Murphy was lucky enough to interview many locals in hot pursuit and take photographs of the alleged UFO crash site. Alas, this evidence was eventually confiscated from him by high-ranking government officials.
A few years later in California, in February 1969, Murphy died in a tragic car accident and rumors soon began to circulate that the car accident was deliberate.
7. Tony Dodd
In the 1990s and early 2000s, Tony Dodd was one of the leading British ufologists. The fact that he had a long career as a police detective under his belt only made him much more reliable regarding the incidents he investigated.
He has been a regular speaker at various UFO events and has investigated some of the UK’s most intriguing UFO sightings and apparent alien abductions from the late 1980s to the early 2000s.
Dodd died in 2009 from a brain tumor. Considering that he, according to his own records, received repeated warnings to avoid certain countries due to possible attempts on his life, as well as direct warnings from a mysterious agent in the United States, many wondered if the tumor was somehow “provoked “. dark agency agents with advanced technology.
By the way, Dodd himself also repeatedly expressed such assumptions until his death.
6. John Mac
John Mack was killed by a drunk driver in London in 2004 and his death is still considered highly suspicious.
Mack was a Harvard University professor who once became fascinated with UFOs and began to study cases of alien abductions. In the UK, many consider him one of the first “academicians”. serious about ufology.
According to friends of Mack and his associates, the very idea that such an outstanding person suddenly became a victim of a completely random and sudden collision with drunk drivers, who not only knocked him down, but took his life, looks unlikely, and they are sure that all this was not only a tragic accident.
5. Ann Livingston
UFO researcher and MUFON member Ann Livingston died in 1994 from a fast-acting and very aggressive form of ovarian cancer. However, many of her MUFON colleagues and close friends began to wonder if her multiple UFO sightings and subsequent encounters with the Men in Black could have been related to her tragic death.
In December 1992, her apartment near O’Hare Airport in Chicago was suddenly lit up by a silver-white flash. Then, just a few hours later, several faceless entities, much like the Men in Black, arrived at her apartment.
Moments after seeing them, Ann passed out and she doesn’t know what happened next. When she woke up, there were no Men in Black around and she looked unharmed. However, she soon developed health problems and was diagnosed with cancer.
4. Jim Keith
The death of explorer and writer Jim Keith could very well be the result of a series of coincidences, but they seemed rather strange.
Keith’s first activity was to study the work of Danny Casolaro (an investigative journalist whose death was also suspicious). In his book, The Octopus claimed that Casolaro’s claims about the existence of the Octopus group were real. This shadow group allegedly controls many world events.
Keith, based on Casolaro’s notes, said that some government forces are testing Americans, dragging them to the Dulce underground base in New Mexico under the guise of being abducted by aliens and pumping them with new drugs.
In 2004, Keith arrived at the festival and fell off the stage, breaking his tibia and requiring emergency surgery. He safely survived the operation but died soon after without regaining consciousness. His official cause of death is a blood clot in his lung.
3. James Forrestal
Next, on our list of UFO investigators who died mysteriously is James Forrestal.
On the night of May 22, 1949, James Forrestal, the very first United States Secretary of Defense to retire a few months before that date, jumped off the 13th floor of the Bethesda Naval Hospital in Maryland.
At the time of his death, he was being treated for depression at this facility, but for some, including members of his own family, his death was far from an outright suicide.
According to the official version of events, Forrestal was last seen being checked by a security guard at 1:45 a.m. He read in his room. Forrestal is then said to have immediately left the room and made his way to the kitchen, where he tied a robe rope to a nearby radiator and the other end around his neck. Then he jumped out of the window. The rope broke and he fell to his death.
However, something caught the eye of those who read this official version. First, the rope around his neck was not long enough for him to reach the battery window. Moreover, there was no evidence that the rope had ever come into contact with the radiator battery.
Even more suspicious was the guard on duty that evening. It was not at the facility before and was delivered as a last-minute replacement. He testified – as the last person who saw Forrestal alive, and then disappeared somewhere, no one knows where.
The most disturbing evidence, however, was scratches found on the windowsill from which Forrestal is said to have voluntarily jumped. This suggested that Forrestal had been forcibly thrown out of a window and then frantically tried to hook onto the ledge with his fingers before finally falling.
As for the UFO connection, some have argued that, as US Secretary of Defense, Forrestal knew a lot about UFO incidents and may have been unhappy with the fact that they were covered up, or perhaps even wanted to make them public.
By the way, in the USSR, it was believed that Forrestal had gone crazy, unable to withstand the political hysteria due to the alleged threat of the “Soviet” invasion of the United States, and therefore jumped out of the window.
2. Morris K. Jessup
Next, on our list of UFO investigators who died mysteriously is Morris K. Jessup.
One of the first American UFO researchers was Morris K. Jessup, author of the 1955 book The Case for UFOs. Little did Jessup know that the release of this book would set off a series of events that would lead to his tragic death.
Jessup first began receiving letters from a mysterious gentleman named Carl Allen, who also claimed to be involved in the legendary Philadelphia Experiment.
This correspondence came to the attention of the US Navy, who questioned Jessup at length about this and his UFO research in general. After this meeting, Jessup began to receive strange phone calls. This caused him to be much more careful in his research.
Then, on April 19, he arranged to meet with one Dr. J. Manson Valentine the next day about his “breakthrough in the investigation.” But Jessup never showed up for that meeting. The next day, he was found dead in his car, with a hose leading to the exhaust pipe coming out of the window.
Some believe that the suicide was actually a murder. Perhaps one reason for suspicion was the soaked towels wrapped around the hose. Not only did they not belong to Jessup, but there was no source of water nearby in which to soak them.
1. Phil Schneider
The final and most controversial person on our list of UFO investigators who died mysteriously is Phil Schneider.
In the early 1990s, Phil Schneider began a series of public lectures in which he claimed to have worked for the US government at various underground facilities. And it was during this work that he witnessed a real battle between underground aliens and employees of a military underground base near Dulce in New Mexico.
He also claimed to have been injured during this battle by an alien weapon, scars which he publicly showed on several occasions.
As you can imagine, many have ridiculed Schneider’s claims, including even some in the UFO community. Others, however, completely believed what he was saying. Videos of his performances still attract a lot of attention on the Internet.
Schneider officially committed suicide on January 17, 1996. His body was found with a piece of flexible wire wrapped several times around his neck in a clear indication of suicide. But many people, including some members of his family, dismissed the suicide claims.
