Before Roswell: The 1941 Cape Girardeau, Missouri UFO Crash With Extraterrestrial Bodies from Humans Are Free
The 1941 Cape Girardeau, Missouri UFO Crash
This story began when a woman by the name of Charlotte Mann apparently received a deathbed confession from her grandmother regarding her husband, Reverend William Huffman, who was the local minister in the area.
When the craft crashed, Huffman was apparently called by the local sheriff to come and assist in delivering some sort of last rights at a plane crash, at least that’s what he was under the impression he was going to do.
When he arrived at the scene, he allegedly realized that it was not a plane, but rather a flying saucer. A classic silver craft, looking like a round disk that had started a fire, and there were multiple dead bodies on the scene, which appeared to be extraterrestrial.
Leonard Stringfield, a UFO researcher (1920–1994) looked heavily into this case. According to him, via his book about Crash Retrievals:
“‘Police officers, plainclothes men and military officers were already at the scene sifting through the wreckage,’ Mann said. Laid to one side of the scene were ‘three bodies, not human,’ she recounted. ‘It was hard for him to tell if they had on suits or if it was their skin, but they were covered head to foot in what looked like wrinkled aluminum foil,’ Mann said. ‘He could see no hair on their bodies and they had no ears. They were small framed like a child, about 4 feet tall, but had larger heads and longer arms.’
“Their faces had ‘large, oval-shaped eyes, no noses, just holes and no lips, just small slits for mouths,’ Mann said. Huffman was told by one of the military officers at the scene not to tell anyone what he had witnessed for security reasons, Mann told Stringfield. Huffman told his wife, Floy, and their two Sons what he had seen when he returned home from the crash site but never spoke of it again, said Mann.”
Stringfield was Director of Civilian Research, Interplanetary Flying Objects (CRIFO), and published a monthly newsletter, ORBIT. In 1957, he became the Public Relations Adviser for the civilian UFO group, National Investigations Committee On Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) under the direction of Major Donald Keyhoe (Marines), a friend of his since 1953.
From 1967 to 1969, Stringfield served as an “Early Warning Coordinator” for the Condon Committee. During the 1970s, he wrote a number of books about alleged recoveries of alien spaceships and alien bodies.
NICAP was a UFO research group mostly active in the United States from the 1950s to the 1980s. You can learn more about them and their history here.
In 1978, Stringfield served as UFO research adviser to Grenada Prime Minister Sir Eric Gairy. This is interesting because WikiLeaks posted more than half a million U.S. State Department diplomatic documents from 1978 detailing America’s interactions with countries around the world, including Grenada Prime Minister Eric Gairy’s efforts to organize a United Nations-based committee to research and investigate global UFO reports. Surely Stringfield had something to do with that.
The point is that he had and still has tremendous credibility as a UFO researcher.
“Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about where we were headed and offered to help. But instead, we, or at least some of us, interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after.” – Paul Hellyer, former Canadian Defence Minister (source)
Edgar Mitchell said “yes, there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered.” (source)
It’s unfortunate to think that our governments, or whichever clandestine agencies around the globe control this subject, are constantly trying to bring these crafts down. Our world is wrapped in secrecy, and the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon is a perfect example of that.
There is lots that the ‘black budget’ world knows, obviously, after years of research, reverse engineering, studying these bodies, etc.. At the same time, there is lots that we, the human population, know as well. There are still many unknowns, and that includes this part of ‘the world of secrecy’ as well.
One thing is for certain: As time goes on, more truths will continue to be revealed. This topic and the disclosure of it leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. It will and is changing everything with regards to how we view the planet, and how we view ourselves as well.
