Vital clues may be lurking around the strange fragment of metal recovered near the scene of the infamous Roswell UFO crash site.
Best-selling author Ben Mezrich discovered the scrap, which is awaiting to be tested, when he visited the site to research his new book “The 37th Parallel.” The book investigated the UFO and paranormal road of the same name. Part of the 37th north parallel in latitude has become known for UFO sightings and unexplained animal mutilation cases.
The road is also believed to house several U.S. military bases and American Indian holy sites.
The Roswell case became so famous after the military announced they had recovered the remains of a crashed flying saucer in the nearby desert. However, they retracted their statement the following day, saying it was just a damaged U.S. Air Force air balloon.
Witnesses later came forward with claims that they saw alien bodies within the crashed sites along with the wreckage, which were taken to the top-secret Area 51 in Nevada.
The book looks into the bottom of UFO sightings along the parallel, including the Roswell incident. It charts the work of UFOlogist Chuck Zukowski, who investigated various cases along the parallel, which takes in Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and southern ridge of Colorado, for several years.
Mr. Mezrich is also the author of the best-selling book “The Accidental Billionaires,” which the film “The Social Network” is basing. He was a total skeptic before researching for his books. As from a family of scientists, he assumed before that most of the UFO community was crazy.
However, Mr. Mezrich became a believer when he met Mr. Zukowski, a former sheriff’s deputy and a part-time microchip engineer. Mr. Mezrich said that he now believes something happened at Roswell.
In 2002, Mr. Zukowski found strange triangular pieces of metal close to the 1947 Roswell crash site. However, it was just recently that he sent a fragment of it to the laboratory of Bigelow Aerospace. Conclusive results of the examination are yet to be released, according to the book.
