MUFON Director's Letter HS

  • It should be noted that in the 1980's and mid 1990's Attorney Robert Blatchman Investigated the Reed Family Case. At the time he was the public relations director for mufon. The outline of the case involved their legally retained attorney Robert Bletchman who discussed the Reed file at the United Nations Symposium on Oct 2nd 1992 in support of GA 33 /426. Robert maintained an alliance with J. Allen Hyenk.  ( Jan C. Harzan Executive Director )


  • WSBS reported in a news broadcast in Sept of 1969 the sighting of a disk shaped object that witnesses say descended from the sky over the Reed family horse farm at 1554 Boardman Street. It should be noted that pillars of the community had come forward and reported observing the disk shaped object in 1969 and still talk about it today.  

Advanced Polygraph

  • During the pretest interview Mr. Reed recounted several encounters. The questions for this exam are focusing on whether or not he is deliberately lying to this examiner about the encounter and being on the spacecraft. RESULTS: No Deception Indicated Passed 99.1% 

Roswell Daily Record

  • The Reed family has made U.S. history. Their 1969 encounter is the first case in the United States to be declared by historians as a true event. For historians or a township to officially induct an historical event and for it to be considered true history, it must have had a life-changing impact on the area in one way or another. Whether that impact was positive or negative.   

Historian | Judge Titus

  • The commemorative bench along with the City Proclamation accrediting the family is a profound testament to the case and the family.
