We Investigated Three Creepy Cases Of Alien Abductions

Are aliens real?

On this episode of BuzzFeed Unsolved Supernatural, Ryan and Shane discuss three compelling cases of alien abductions:

BuzzFeedBlue / Via youtube.com

The first case was on November 5, 1975, when Travis Walton was working in a seven-men tree-thinning crew in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest near Heber, Arizona.

When the men were finished for the day, Travis noticed a bright light coming through the trees. When they got closer they saw “a strange, golden disc” hovering stationary, about 20-feet from the ground.

Even though his coworkers warned him to stay away, Travis approached the craft. As the craft began spinning erratically he heard loud vibrations. Then, a blue-green light sprung from the craft and hit Travis in the chest and head.

The other men assumed Travis was dead and fled the scene. In their retreat, one of his friends saw the saucer fly above the trees and off towards the Northeast. Some of the men returned to the scene out of guilt but Travis wasn't there.

When Travis opened his eyes, he remembered waking up in what appeared to be a medical office or lab among three humanoid beings.

They had brown eyes, abnormally large heads, stood under 5 ft. tall and were wearing soft orange overalls.

He then attacked the three beings causing them to retreat. As Travis explored other rooms in an attempt to escape, he encountered a large muscular man wearing a helmet who forced him out of the craft and into a warehouse with other saucers.

His explorations eventually led him into another room with three very good looking people.

His explorations eventually led him into another room with three very good looking people.

He recalled “two men and a woman were standing around the table. They were all wearing velvety blue uniforms like the first man's, except that they had no helmets. The two men had the same muscularity and the same masculine good looks as the first man. The woman also had a face and figure that was the epitome of her gender. They were smooth-skinned and blemishless. No moles, freckles, wrinkles or scars marked on their skin. The striking good looks of the man I had first met became more obvious on seeing them all together. They shared a family-like resemblance, although they were not identical.”

The people gently pushed him onto a table and placed a mask over his nose at which point Travis passed out.

When he woke up, Travis was laying on the ground in Heber, Arizona. He saw a silver disc-shaped craft hovering above the ground in front of him, which then flew up into the sky and disappeared silently.

Although he believed he was gone for an hour, he later learned he had been missing for five days. During this time, the rest of his crew were under investigation for foul play.

They all underwent psychiatric testing and polygraphs. Each test came back as passing or inconclusive.

A psychiatrist suspected the entire abduction was in Travis' imagination but could not explain why the others went along with it.

Travis also appeared on Fox’s game show, Moment Of Truth where a polygraph taken onstage determined he was not telling the truth about his abduction.

The second case was the abduction of Linda Napolitano. Ufologist, Budd Hopkins worked closely with Linda to document and publicize her case.

On November 30, 1989, around 3:15 AM, Linda claimed she awoke to find short aliens around her bed. She found herself unable to wake her husband up because she perceived the beings telling her to “be quiet” in an odd language.

The three beings then levitated her “like an angel” outside her 12th story apartment window and floated into a blue-white light, which brought them into a clam-shell shaped spaceship.

After the experiments were over, she woke up nearly two hours later at 5 AM in bed.

In 1991, Linda reached out to Hopkins with an x-ray of her nose showing an object that Hopkins described as having “spiraling extensions that curl out away from her face.”

Shortly after, Linda claimed the object was removed after another abduction. Linda eventually visited a nose and throat specialist who confirmed the object had been gone but “a conspicuous ridge of built-up cartilage showed where it had once been embedded.”

Linda’s abduction had common details to other abduction cases, but what makes this case famous are the eyewitnesses. In 1991, Hopkins received a letter from a police officer detailing an experience with his partner in November 1989.

The two were sitting underneath the FDR Bridge when they saw a blue light, with a woman being levitated along three strange beings as they made their way into a UFO.

They told Hopkins they felt guilty for not helping the woman. One officer even had a nervous breakdown and spent nights parked at her apartment building.

BuzzFeed Video

The men eventually identified themselves as Richard and Dan. They claimed to be bodyguards for “an important political figure” and visited Linda multiple times to look for answers about what happened that night. But Hopkins told Linda not to speak with them to avoid contaminating their accounts.

They said the political figure was also present with them the night of the abduction. Some Ufologists believed that the signature belonged to former Secretary-General of the UN, Javier Perez De Cuellar.

And while this could be plausible, it should be noted that Hopkins never officially met with Richard and Dan and only corresponded via letters, leading many people to believe Hopkins was the victim of a hoax.

He continued to describe the aircraft by saying, “it seems like it stationary. What I'm doing right now is orbiting, and the is just orbiting on top of me. Also, it's got a green light and sort of metallic. It's shiny on the outside. It just vanished.”

They also claimed that his experience was a combination of wanting to see something, being easily led to believe that anything he didn't recognize was a UFO, becoming disoriented, and mistaking stars or his own lights as lights from another object.

BuzzFeed Video

Another source reported he was fascinated with UFOs and even had a UFO scrapbook with him when he disappeared.

However, other sources contest that Valentich was an experienced pilot. It’s also important to note that the Cessna 182-L planes were designed to float in the case of a water landing.

Ultimately, nobody can say for sure if aliens are real, let alone alien abductions. Hopefully one day we’ll have a definitive answer but until then the mystery remains unsolved.
