An eyewitness to the ‘Phoenix Lights’ mass sighting contacts a neighborhood councilwoman with proof of the occasion. After an encounter by MIB and a disclosure to the media, the eyewitness goes lacking.
In April 1997, within the months that adopted the March 13 mass sighting often called the Phoenix Lights, Councilwoman Frances Barwood, who had begun wanting into the weird incident a lot to the dismay of her colleagues, acquired a name from a person named Richard Curtis. He was a disabled veteran who informed her that he had very detailed movies of the Phoenix Lights craft in his possession. He had personally recorded them utilizing skilled tools. “He stated you might see the form. He stated you might see how massive it was compared to the encompassing buildings and all the pieces. He described that the lights had been gaseous. He was so excited that he had gotten all this on video,” Barwood recalled him telling her. Curtis additionally informed Barwood that he did not know who else to name and that he thought he may belief her.
Barwood was intrigued by this improvement as a result of, as much as that time, a lot of the movies had been simply of lights towards a darkish backdrop. This promised to be one thing extra. Barwood requested if he may ship copies of the movies to her workplace and Curtis agreed that he would. Days glided by, with no signal of the tapes. “I assumed he made this up. He did not have video, you realize, all these things.”
Per week later, Curtis known as Barwood at her house and requested her what she considered the movies. Barwood was shocked and informed him that she had not acquired them. Curtis then went on to inform her that two males from her workplace, confirmed up at his condominium after they’d talked on the cellphone. The 2 males had been “related wanting” dressed head to toe in black (three-piece black fits, black sneakers, black hats, black suitcases, and many others.). It was 110 levels out, so Curtis discovered their fashion of gown odd, however he shrugged it off and requested in the event that they had been from Barwood’s workplace. They replied, merely, “Sure.” They then requested Curtis if he had made any copies of the movies. He informed them that he had not had an opportunity to, to which they replied that they’d make copies for him. Curtis handed over the movies and the 2 males turned and left. They drove off in a black sedan. Barwood knowledgeable Curtis that she had no males in her workplace and that every one of her workers had been feminine. “I had no thought who these guys had been. It sounds so weird. Nothing made sense to me,” Barwood recalled considering.
Angered, Richard Curtis went public along with his story. He did an interview with a Phoenix TV station whereupon he described all the pieces from his filming of the item to the 2 unusual males who knocked on his door and took his tapes. When Barwood tried to name him, she found that Richard Curtis was now not at his condominium. She spoke to his neighbors who informed her that Curtis had taken some dangerous medicine and was taken away by an ambulance to a hospital. There have been no data of Curtis ever having been acquired at any hospital in Phoenix. Barwood puzzled how the unusual males even knew concerning the tapes and determined to have her cellphone traces inspected by an expert. He got here out to her house and did his assessments. Afterward, he stepped outdoors. “He wouldn’t come again in the home. He got here to the backdoor and stated, “No, I am not coming in. Sure, your cellphone is tapped, it is a authorities faucet.” Barwood was shocked that somebody within the US authorities had tapped her telephones, particularly for the reason that navy and officers had been insistent that the Phoenix Lights had been nothing however flares. Hardly. Richard Curtis was by no means seen once more.
