The abduction of humans by aliens has been a staple of UFO lore for decades. The first widely know case was that of Betty and Barney Hill, a New Hampshire couple allegedly abducted in 1961. Their case either fits – or helped create – a pattern that future abduction stories would follow: missing time, disturbing medical experiments, and diminutive aliens, often referred to as ‘Greys.’ For some, the phenomenon is a nightmarish fear; for others, fodder for jokes about ‘anal probes.’
Whether you are a believer or not, most people are familiar with the concept through movies and television.The film Close Encounters of the Third Kind brought the phenomenon (or the tropes of a burgeoning mythology, depending on your level of skepticism) to a mass audience in 1977. Fifteen years later, The X-Files helped start a new wave of interest in UFOs in general and alien abductions in particular. Today, the idea that aliens are taking humans for medical experimentation has saturated pop culture. Films like A Fire in the Sky (1993), The Fourth Kind (2009), and even Cowboys & Aliens (2011) and television shows as diverse as Roswell (1999 – 2002), American Horror Story: Asylum (2012), and Ancient Aliens (2009 – Present) have kept the idea of aliens descending from the sky to snatch humans a part of America’s Zeitgeist.
I was recently given the following document by Mr. Friend. He provided no other information beyond, “You might find this interesting.” It appears to detail an alien abduction in 1983.
It is clear that VIPER is a first word for extraterrestrial related events. What VIPER DIAMOND specifically refers to is unclear; however, it should be noted that the mentioning of a listening post in Vieques places VIPER DIAMOND HOSTEL – apparently a base or installation of some sort – in Puerto Rico. This may coincide with reports of UFOs operating in tandem with US military jets in Puerto Rico going back to the 1980s. Mr. Friend provided the following image, claiming it is of a VIPER DIAMOND spacecraft being escorted by an F-14 in the skies over Puerto Rico.
It is also clear that VIPER DIAMOND has a relationship with the American government, including protocols for operating in the United States. The MONTAUK TREATY may refer to Montauk Air Force Station, a defunct US military base on Long Island that has been the center of conspiracy theories for decades. I’ll have more about that installation and the stories surrounding it in a future post.
The mention of phasing technology and DEADBOLT GINGER goes unexplained. It is easy – although, perhaps incorrect – to infer that “phasing technology” allows solid objects to pass through each other. How this would work is unknown; however, most of what we consider solid matter is empty space. Could this technology somehow control the interaction of subatomic particles and the four fundamental forces?
Mr. Friend was unable or unwilling to provide further explanation for what the more obscure content means (e.g., who is JOHN WAYNE?). This is a common difficulty when analyzing classified documents. However, it appears that this document not only provides proof for elements of the abduction phenomenon, but also confirms that the US government cooperates with an alien race. It also indicates that there are multiple extraterrestrial forces at work in the United States.
A search by the Pennsylvania State Police and the Middleburg Police Department produced no record of Dalton Crane, although the age of the case may contribute to the lack of documentation. The Snyder County Assessment Office was able to confirm that Dalton Crane owned the property at the address in the report. That property was confiscated by the state government in 1985 for unpaid taxes. It is currently the property of Tans-American Energy Incorporated, an oil and natural gas company operating throughout the United States.
