US Army Major ‘Hid Debris From Roswell UFO Crash in His Water Heater After Government Tried to Cover it Up’
Article by Emma Parry February 5, 2020 (thesun.co.uk)
• In July 1947, a “flying disk” crash landed in the desert near Roswell, New Mexico. Military troops moved into the area to investigate and recover debris from the crash site. Major Jesse Marcel, an intelligence officer for the 509th Bomb Group at the Roswell Army Air Field, was the first military man at the site. Specialist teams were brought in to remove the wreckage. It is claimed by some that several dead alien bodies were also recovered and flown to Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio for further study.
• Calvin Parker was 19 years old when he had his own close encounter with a UFO in Pascagoula, Mississippi in October 1973. Parker was fishing on the banks of the Pascagoula River with his pal Charlie Hickson when a UFO landed nearby. Strange creatures with lobster-like claws emerged from the craft, grabbed the two men and dragged them onboard their craft. Being kindred spirits by each having an extraordinary UFO experience, a mutual friend set up three separate meetings between Parker and Marcel in the early 1980s.
• Parker says that Marcel told him “straight up” that a UFO had crashed at Roswell and the US government tried to cover it up. According to Parker, “At first [Marcel] said he was allowed to talk about what had happened but later was told not to say a word in fear that the Russian’s might find out.” “He told me that he was ordered to say that it was just a weather balloon that had crashed, and being a good soldier he carried out those orders.” “He claimed that the government gave out fake information of where the UFO crash site was so that no one would know where it actually happened.”
• At first, the military said that the crashed object was a weather balloon, and later the Air Force claimed it was a downed high-altitude spy balloon from a top secret operation called Project Mogul, to detect Soviet atomic bomb tests. Marcel said he was forced to hold pieces of a weather balloon at a press conference to help debunk the UFO crash story. (see featured image above)
• Major Marcel was very sick at the time of the meetings. He told Parker that, being the first to arrive on the scene at Roswell, he recovered three strange pieces of metal from the crash site. The strange material Marcel found was a kind of lightweight metal that would spring back into shape after being crumpled. He told Parker “[I]t wasn’t anything of this world.” He secretly took the three pieces of the pliable metal material home to show his son, Jesse Jr.
• According to UFO investigator Philip Mantle, Major Marcel’s son, Dr Jesse Marcel Jr, remembers handling the alien material in 1947. But he never saw the material again after that night. Parker and another witness who was interviewed by Mantle say that Marcel confided to them that he had hidden the three pieces of alien material in a hot water heater at his home in Houma, Louisiana. Recalled Parker, “They were hidden in the top of his hot water heater in his house. All you had to do was to undo the top two screws on the water heater and remove the lid.” Unfortunately, Marcel passed away in 1986 before Parker had chance to see him again or check the water heater. “Could the three pieces of UFO debris still be there?” wonders Parker. “Well the house is (still there).”
Major Jesse Marcel, who was the first officer on the scene after a “flying disk” crash landed in New Mexico, took material home from the crash site in July 1947 and kept it in his house, according to British investigator Philip Mantle.
Marcel was dispatched by Roswell Army Air Field, where he worked as an intelligence officer for the
509th Bomb Group, to investigate the crash and recovered pieces of the strange material from the desert.
Specialist teams were brought in to clear the wreckage and, it is claimed by some, several dead alien bodies who were flown to Wright Patterson Airforce Base, Ohio, for further study.
The US Air Force said later the object was a downed high-altitude spy balloon from a top secret operation called Project Mogul, which listened out for Soviet atomic bomb
However, before his death in 1986, Major Marcel admitted there had been a cover-up – and that he was forced to hold pieces of a weather balloon at a press conference to debunk the UFO crash story.
Until now it was not known what happened to the strange material he found at the site – a kind of metal which would spring back into shape after being crumpled – and which he said he took home to show his son, Jesse Jr.
But a witness has told UFO investigator Philip Mantle that the major confided in him that he kept three pieces of the UFO in a hot water heater at his home in Houma, Louisiana.
