Twenty-one porcelain dolls on bamboo stakes found in Alabama swamp, some missing heads

Twenty-one dolls on bamboo stakes have been mysteriously found in an Alabama swamp.

Autauga County sheriff's deputies traveled by canoe into Bear Creek Swamp on Tuesday to recover the dolls, whose faces and hair were painted white.

Most of the dolls are porcelain and have the appearance of being antique, reports The Montgomery Advertiser.

'I noticed the dolls several weeks ago while driving through the swamp working on a stolen vehicle report,' he sad.

'I noticed the dolls several weeks ago while driving through the swamp working on a stolen vehicle report,'said Autauga County Chief Deputy Joe Sedinger

'I just thought they were a Halloween prank, and really didn't give it much thought after that.'

But on Tuesday morning they decided to investigate after people expressed concerns on social media.

'I admit it looked kind of creepy,' Sedinger said.
'You could see them from the road. We figured it was best to get them up.'

The Montgomery newspaper reports that it has been a rite of passage for generations of teenagers to enter the area at night looking for creatures said to roam the swamp.

UFO researchers' computers hacked over mysterious "Roswell slides"


Comment: The 'Roswell slides' story is the latest ufological brouhaha making waves online. Roswell researcher Tom Carey claims to have the slides, and is planning to release them next year (see the link for more background). Real? More COINTELPRO? We'll see (or not)!

UPDATE: Kevin Randle has posted Anthony Bragalia's thoughts on the recent hacking here. A couple excerpts:
... some time ago a chest once owned by a deceased couple was found to contain a stash of old slides, including two Kodachromes of special interest. Depicting a small humanoid corpse, these extraordinary slides were authenticated by a renowned Kodak expert as having been exposed in 1947. This author discovered that the husband was an oil exploration geologist who worked the New Mexico region in the 1940s for his company (a Texaco predecessor) including in the Permian Basin, a region encompassing Roswell. He was also the President of the local geological association in 1947. ... Over two years have been spent in securing experts, researching the back story, conducting interviews and scientific tests and in arranging the forthcoming televised broadcast of the slides. During the course of all of this, leaks had occurred to the UFO community about the existence of the slides. ...

This past summer, Reynolds had forwarded to me an email that he said that he had received from someone who wished to contact me. The individual, using a pseudonym and an encrypted email service address, stated he had important information to relate about the slides. When I received the email and replied to this individual that I would be open to learning more, I had unknowingly opened a 'portal' to attack by a hacker. The individual was not someone who wished to share information with me, it was someone who wished to steal it from me! Once I became "infected" by the hacker's malware, he then changed my password and began to read all of my emails relating to Roswell. The hacker would taunt me by emailing me back the information that he was learning about the investigation. Reynolds associate Ross Evans then somehow began a direct communication with the hacker. Evans (who actually emailed me his intent) stated that he aimed to expose everything about the slides that he obtained.


More alien autopsy images in the pipeline?
Ross, a commenter at the 'UFO Conjecture(s)' blog, stated today in an email exchange with 'The UFO Trail' that his email and the accounts of some high profile UFO-researchers were hacked in relation to the alleged Roswell slides. Ross further stated that he believed "a three letter agency" was responsible.

Ross stated that he assumed he was initially targeted due to his involvement in email exchanges about the slides. He first got involved in the saga, he indicated, about 18 months ago through reading 'UFO Conjecture(s)' and exchanging emails with its author, Rich Reynolds.

"The 'hacking' thing involved Tony Bragalia, Rich Reynolds, Nick Redfern and myself," Ross wrote.

Comment: Nick Redfern commented on the above here:
You'll see a reference in the link to various people having been hacked by someone trying to secure more info on the slides. You'll also see a reference to one of those people who got hacked being me - which is absolutely true.

All of this occurred back in the summer...but the matter is far from over...

The green children of Woolpit: The 12th century legend of visitors from another world

© Wikipedia
The ruins of the Abbey of Bury St. Edmunds
The Children of Woolpit is an ancient account dating back to the 12th century, which tells of two children that appeared on the edge of a field in the village of Woolpit in England. The young girl and boy had green-hued skin and spoke an unknown language. The children became sick and the boy died, but the girl recovered and over the years came to learn English. She later relayed the story of their origins, saying they came from a place called St Martin's Land, which existed in an atmosphere of permanent twilight, and where the people lived underground. While some view the story as a folk tale that that describes an imaginary encounter with inhabitants of another world beneath our feet or even extraterrestrial, others accept it as a real, but somewhat altered account of a historical event that merits further investigation.

The account is set in the village of Woolpit located in Suffolk, East Anglia. In the Middle Ages, it lay within the most agriculturally productive and densely populated area of rural England. The village had belonged to the rich and powerful Abbey of Bury St. Edmunds.

Mysterious fire outbreak destroys over 100 houses in Bauchi, Nigeria

Fire
The acting district head of Soro in Darazo Local Government Area of Bauchi State, Alhaji Muhammad Kilishi, on Wednesday, informed that a mysterious fire outbreak had hit the town, razing more than 100 houses with property worth millions of Naira destroyed.

Alhaji Kilishi, who disclosed this while speaking with journalists in Bauchi, stated that as of now, no one knew the cause of the fire outbreak, saying that people only discovered that fire would come from nowhere and gut houses.

According to him, the mysterious fire outbreak started in October, saying, however, that, so far, no life had been lost in the incident.

"This fire is quite mysterious because it is not caused as a result of an electrical fault or bush burning. One just notices that fire from nowhere will start burning and before you know it, it has started destroying houses.

"This incident started mysteriously about a month ago, but no life has been lost since the outbreak. I don't know the meaning of this strange fire which cannot be traced to a cause," the acting district head said.

Comment: This is something to keep an eye on. Perhaps these fires are similar to the fires that have plagued parts of Italy as covered by SOTT.net in the past and other sources recently.

The return of the Okeechobee Ogre in Florida


A Florida couple from Palmdale just reported their recent sighting of a large, hairy, bigfoot-like creature. They spotted the creature while they were camping along Fisheating Creek close to Lakeport, Florida. They were camping near some Indian Mounds, not far from the site of Fort Center, an area that saw heavy fighting during the Second Seminole War. Lakeport is a small retirement and fishing community on the west side of Lake Okeechobee. The mounds are considered a sacred site for Native Americans and contain artifacts along with human remains. There is a small artificial lake among the mounds that is believed to have been a charnal pond for human corpses.

This couple reported hearing and then seeing a large hairy beast outside their tent in the middle of the night. The next morning, they found the carcass of a partially eaten deer nearby. They also found some long reddish-brown hairs on a branch.

Another 'aerial anomaly': Airline passenger films 'UFO' flying over Iran


A passenger on board a commercial airliner has caught some astonishing footage of a disc-shaped UFO flying underneath their plane.

The aircraft was flying over Iranian airspace at the time and as yet there's been no word from any government or organisation claiming it to be theirs.

While the object itself is small in the video what's clear is that it definitely doesn't have wings in the conventional sense, instead the object appears to be completely round in shape, echoing the classic designs of UFOs we've seen in the past.

Is it an alien craft? Or simply an experimental aircraft? Either are just as likely yet both are just as exciting.

Comment: There seems to be an increasing number of these 'aerial anomalies' being reported recently. Could this be part of a trend?
