Jesse Marcel Jr., one of the last witnesses to the Roswell debris (inset of his father)

It is a shame that 66 years after the Roswell crash we STILL don’t know the truth… and with one of the last credible witnesses having passed away now, I fear we never will.


Marcel Jr. was one of the last surviving witnesses to the debris recovered during the Roswell incident.

Dr Jesse Marcel was the son of Major Jesse Marcel whose involvement in the recovery of debris from the Roswell UFO crash in 1947 had made him a household name. First on the scene following the incident, Marcel Sr. famously appeared in a series of photographs taken of the debris strewn out on the floor, materials that the United States military would later claim to be the remains of a weather balloon experiment.

Following the retrieval of the debris, his father allowed him to have a look at the strange materials which included beams marked with undecipherable symbols and a mysterious type of metal that would spring back in to shape when bent. Despite the level of controversy surrounding these events Marcel stood firm to his words and never changed his story, a fact that many in the field see as a testimony to his sincerity and dedication to the truth.

Jessie Marcel Jr. was himself a keen disclosure advocate and made several public appearances to tell his side of the story including the recent Citizen’s Hearing on Disclosure. He also wrote a book on his experiences called “The Roswell Legacy” which detailed the events as he recalled them.

Dr Marcel died of a suspected heart attack at his home at the age of 77.

Medjimurje Mayor Ivan Stefic holding the "alien head."

Medjimurje Mayor Ivan Stefic holding the “alien head.”


I have no idea what this thing is that the mayor is holding, but I wouldn’t mind having it on display in the Museum of the Weird!  Mayor Stefic, if you’re reading this… call me!


A baffled mayor has asked scientists to examine the remains of what be believes to be the head of an alien dug up by workers in a graveyard in Croatia.

The twisted, soft-bodied remains – which seems to have a beak-like mouth in the centre – were unearthed in Medjimurje where gardeners were extending the local cemetery.

A second section – believed to contain what looks like a heart – was also recovered.

“It scared the life out of me to see that thing staring up out of the ground,” said one worker.

“The really strange thing, though, was the smell. Most things that come out of the ground don’t smell too good.

“But this smelled very sweet, like aftershave or perfume,” they added.

Mayor Ivan Stefic, seen here holding the head, explained: “It was found about one metre under the surface and gave the workers quite a shock.”

“We have got it safe here at the Town Hall until the scientists take it from us.

“I know it sounds crazy, but we can’t think of any more rational explanation for what we’ve found,” he added.
