How to muck up an intriguing UFO episode

We are all familiar pretty much with the 1973 Pascagoula event:
Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker, two good ol’ boys, fishing on the Pascagoula River in Mississippi were confronted by a UFO which disseminated three odd entities that grabbed them for some kind of medical-like analysis aboard the craft the entities arrived in.
The event as recounted by both men and elaborated upon by Calvin Parker right up to today [2021] is, by all interpretations, credible, even within its bizarre circumstances.
I thought, for a long while, that the men had a folie à deux (psychological experience) but recent, other witness reports indicate that something real, and non-ephemeral happened on that river, to the boys, in 1973.
Even with Calvin Parker’s addition of details – a “female-like” entity placing her “fingers” inside his nose and throat, causing blood loss – I still give Calvin benefit of the doubt.

The tale is one of the best in UFO lore and within the abduction category I usually demean, pressing for a neurological or psycho- logical explanation rather than a kind of alien (extraterrestrial) kidnapping.
But the UFO gang, pressed by book publisher Philip Mantle, continue to stoke the story, looking for more witnesses – even though accounts from 1973 would be iffy by any evaluation.
This valuable UFO account has become a golden goose for Mantle and Calvin Parker and if they can gild it any further, they will surely try.
Mantle and his fan base along with those who’ve come to admire ad love Calvin Parker are distorting and stretching the original incident to the point where it is becoming a fictive-like sci-fi fable.
There is not much one can  do to investigate a happening from 48 years ago, but to wreak havoc on a “pure account”: with much later accretions is beyond the pale.
Let’s hope that this singular account doesn’t get further mucked up, because of greed or a need to sensationalize for attention.
