In a never-before-seen interview, former US Deputy Sheriff Charlie Forgus says he was a witness to the UFO crash at Roswell in 1947
In July 1947 Sheriff Jess Slaughter and Deputy Sheriff Charles Fogus were travelling together to pick up a prisoner when they heard on their police radio reports of a crashed aircraft.
The two men, who were travelling to Roswell, New Mexico, decided to investigate and stumbled across the scene of one of the most famous UFO incidents in history.
While the US military have long claimed the crashed object was merely a weather balloon, conspiracy theorists believe the site was the scene of at least one alien aircraft crash and the recovery of extraterrestrials.
In a new book, UFOs TODAY – 70 Years of Lies, Misinformation and Government Cover-Up, law enforcement officer Fogus reveals he saw a downed flying saucer and military personnel removing a number of alien bodies from the scene. (You can watch full interview below)
It is the first time his statement has been published.
In the interview he says he say a flying saucer crashed into the side of a river bed which was “100ft across”.
Describing the scene he said: “When we got there, the land was covered with soldiers. They were hauling a big, a creature.
“The bodies must have been 5 feet tall.
“I saw the legs and feet on some of them. They looked like our feet.
“The skin was a brownish color…. Like they were in the sun too long.
“There were soldiers there….about 3 or 4 hundred of them.
“We seen them haul them (the bodies) out there, out of the canyon up to the trucks….puttin them on the tow trucks so they could haul them.”
He says after about 20 minutes they were told to leave the scene and so continued on their journey to collect the prisoner.
Asked what he thought of what he saw, he said: “The Great Father didn’t just make this planet…. He made all of them. He put beings on these planets just like he put us on this one. They’re smarter then we are.
“They can get from there to here, but we can’t get from here to there.”
The Daily Mirror has been passed a transcript of an interview between Deputy Sheriff Fogus of Howard County, Texas, and Los Angeles private investigator Deanna Short by the book publisher Philip Mantle, a former Director of Investigations for the British UFO Research Association.
He said: “Deanna recorded the interview on video and later had a transcript done of the interview and completed her Agency report to verify facts at that time related to Charles Forgus and Sheriff Jess Slaughter – both of Howard County, Texas.
“Both were there and were on an overlook to view the crash scene recovery by the Army.
“I should note that according to Deanna’s daughter Mackenzie, Charles made a special effort to note to Deanna “not to believe what others will say – he and the Sheriff did witness the Roswell crash scene”. They had heard about the crash on the police radio which enabled them to find the location.
“It is rare that anyone new adds anything to the Roswell event from an eye witness point of view.
“If you treat the Roswell UFO crash as a ‘cold case’ investigation then new testimony like this can be invaluable.
“It could confirm what other witnesses have previously said or it could be another potential witness that has been eliminated from the enquiry.
“So either way it is an invaluable piece of information. To have it on video as well is a real luxury. I remain open minded on this gentleman’s testimony but we hope that by making it public that others might be able to assist us in our investigations.
“I dare say many of those that know far more than me about the Roswell Incident will write it off as it does not fit the known Roswell crash scenario.
“All I will say is that I am working to try and find any more information and I leave this ‘Roswell File’ open. If anyone reading this has any information concerning the Roswell Incident we urge them to get in touch.”
