UFO Mystery

Since the famous crash in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, UFO's have been spotted in all parts of the country. Eyewitnesses report seeing disc like craft or cigar shaped objects. The real UFO buzz in the Magnolia State began almost 30-years ago when a pair of fisherman from the Gulf Coast became world-famous overnight.

"There won't be a doubt in anybody's mind that there's other worlds out there...there's life."

Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker were fishing on the Pascagoula River in October of 1973. The men say they were overpowered by creatures from an alien ship. Calvin Parker had remained fairly silent about his experience, until 1993.


"I couldn't move anything, my muscles were paralyzed. So, the other being left and went over to a friend I was fishing with. It injected something into him and that was the last I seen of him until I left the craft."

Hickson remembers experiments being conducted on him. "I could tell they had left me. Looking in the wall in front of me, it came out of that light in that wall, moved up in front of me about this far. It was probably this big...and round. It appeared to me like a big eye."

Many UFO researchers say Hickson and Parker's story, is the most believable tale of alien abduction. Hickson and Parker's ordeal was just one chapter for UFP phenomena during the early seventies. There were reports of sightings in Madison County, the Delta and Northeast Mississippi. If people everywhere were seeing these UFO's, is there any proof? Ufologists like Tony Scarbourgh say "yes."

"The Air Force and the Air Force's of other nation's have miles, without exaggerating, of gun camera film. There are plenty of photograph's, video footage and so on."

He says the military is suppressing much of this information. That's why eyewitness accounts are the only sources of information.

"I know I wasn't crazy, I know I wasn't dreaming, and I know I wasn't drunk, because I don't drink."

Flora Police Chief Hubert Roberts had a strange encounter in 1974. A stranded motorist flagged him down and told him a disc like craft hovered over his car and drained it's power.

Roberts and the Naval man went to investigate, and found the craft in a field. He said it hovered silently and he smelled no fumes from jet fuel.

"A few seconds it just moved up about tree top, and then...shooo!"

The next day, Roberts went back out to the sight and saw burn marks on the grass. It was about two weeks later, several law enforcement officers saw the same object hovering in a field in rural Madison County.

Madison County wasn't the only place where police reported strange craft.
Columbus police officers Billy Nolan and Pat Robertson reported seeing something strange in the Fall of 1973.

"Didn't make a sound, didn't hear a sound. That's what puzzled me about the whole thing, the way it shot up in the air it went like a falling star it just went straight up...shoo!"

"Everytime a plane would come a certain distance from that object, that object's lights would go out. When a plane turned to go back to the base, it would go back on."

NEWSCHANNEL 12 contacted the Air Force for an interview, but they refused to comment on UFO sightings during the 1970's saying, "Due to the fact that the Air Force is not in the business of investigating UFO claims, it would be inappropriate to go on camera."

What was this object police were seeing? We'll continue to investigate as we go in search of the "Unexplained."

Unexplained Cases | Forever Home of the Abandoned and Forgotten: Forest Haven

Written by:  Rick Garner Case Filed: 10/1/21 Executive Producer:  Rick Garner   When one hears the word “asylum” … especially when paired with “haunted” or “abandoned” … dreadful images come to mind of decaying buildings, sinister hallways, and forgotten lives. Forest Haven in Laurel, Maryland, has all of these and much more. Walking these grounds, Rick Garner felt a similar sadness...the kind he felt at Pennhurst but perhaps something more...something darker. The facility opened in 1925 as the District Training School for the Mentally Retarded. It was a farm-like institution designed to provide patients with useful skills. In 1928, the first of many on-ground burials occurred. In 1963, the property was named Forest Haven but during that decade, the property would begin its decline. Funding was cut, the population of residents grew to include people with epilepsy, but the worst happened in 1974 when a nearby orphanage called “Junior Village” closed and its 20 souls were moved into F

Unexplained Cases | Baltimore Street Murder House

Written by:  Darren Dedo Case Filed:  06 /20/19 - Gettysburg, Pennsylvania Executive Producer:  Rick Garner Battlefields, homes, pubs, and restaurants. Almost anywhere you go in Gettysburg you will come across a place that is supposedly haunted. It is very easy to understand why. Tens of thousands of men lost their lives here in this small Pennsylvania town in July of 1863. We visited one unassuming and haunted location that was here during the Battle of Gettysburg and was a casualty collection point just like many buildings were used for back then. It would make sense that the spirit who sets off ghost hunting gadgets in this Baltimore Street home fought and died in the Civil War. But, this resident spirit has no connection to the Battle of Gettysburg. Our guide for the evening, P aranormal Investigator Robert "Night Monkey" Simmons  with Gettysburg Paranormal Association / Gettysburg Ghost  Tours . He  shares with everyone the details.  “The morning of August 31, 198

Field Reports from Broadcountry Cinema 3 - Magee, Mississippi

Written by: Jeff Rent Case Filed: 5/23/03 - Magee, Mississippi Executive Producer: Rick Garner The Broadcountry Cinema 3 in Magee sits just off of Highway 49. By "Unexplained" standards, this 18-year-old building is practically brand new. Dozens of reports of paranormal phenomenon have caught the attention of "Unexplained" investigators and we decided to check it out for ourselves. These strange happenings started when the building was still under construction. Owner Butch McCall was showing a friend around. "He gets this funny sound in his voice and he's like, 'Man, this place is haunted.' I'm like, 'Well, it can't be haunted! It's not built yet!'"
