[October 1, 1995] -- On September 7-8, 1995 in San Marino, Italy, invited scientists, doctors and journalists met to view and discuss the controversial "alien humanoid" autopsy footage first broadcast publicly in short excerpts August 28, 1995 by the Fox network in the United States and Channel 4 in England.
Longer unedited footage of one humanoid autopsy and craft debris, allegedly filmed June 3, 1947 after a crash near Socorro, New Mexico, were shown to conference participants, including Jesse Marcel, Jr., M. D. -- whose father, former Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) intelligence officer Jesse A. Marcel, has gone down in history as the officer photographed holding pieces of silver debris collected from a ranch near Corona, New Mexico in early July 1947. Dr. Marcel recalled the night his father came home from work around midnight, excited about odd materials he had found during a military investigation at a ranch. A "crashed flying saucer" story made newspaper headlines. Then the Pentagon said it was nothing more than a torn weather balloon. But flying saucer rumors persisted; and a nurse at RAAF told Roswell mortician Glenn Dennis she assisted a medical examination of non-human bodies.
Over the decades since 1947, controversy has raged about government cover-up of extraterrestrial contact and retrieval of non-human bodies and disks. But no one had ever offered photographic evidence until London-based music video producer Ray Santilli purchased some old black and white film reels. The film contained two autopsies of nearly identical humanoid beings, each with six fingers and six toes. Santilli bought the film from a retired cameraman in the United States who said he "was assigned to Intelligence, reporting to the Assistant Chief of Air Staff" from 1942 until 1952. The cameraman "JB" told Santilli that on the orders of Major General Clements M. McMullen, Deputy Commander of the Strategic Air Command in Washington, D. C., he filmed the exterior of a silver disk, three live humanoid bodies, one dead body, and broken struts and panel debris at a crash site ten miles southwest of Socorro, New Mexico -- not Corona.
The date of the Socorro incident, according to JB, was June 3, 1947 -- a full month before the now-famous Corona-Roswell crash story of July 1947. The implication is that there were at least two different UFO crashes on two different dates in 1947, requiring two different government retrievals of bodies and craft.
Out of nearly 200 film reels averaging 100 feet or 3 minutes each, the cameraman said he kept out 22 reels for special processing because of lighting problems. The bulk of the processed film went to the Pentagon. JB said no one ever came back for the remaining reels. Fifty years later, in his eighties with deteriorating health, JB decided to sell the less-than-perfect film to help his granddaughter financially. To date, JB refuses to go public for fear of repercussions to his family.
At the San Marino, Italy conference organized by Roberto Pinotti, Director of Italy's National Ufological Center, two autopsy specialists attended. Unedited scenes of one autopsy were viewed on videotape. (The second autopsy is controlled by a German financier named V. Spielberg, who provided Santilli with the money to purchase the film on the condition that he be able to keep a select portion for his own private collection. Spielberg has not agreed to release that portion yet.)
No sexual organs were visible on the torso. An opening in the pubic area suggested a female if compared to human anatomy. No belly button could be seen and one of the autopsy specialists noted that the excision from throat to pubis was a straight line without cutting around a belly button depression. Santilli said the same characteristics applied to the second humanoid and wondered if the absence of belly buttons meant that the nearly identical beings had been produced by cloning.
When the humanoid body was cut open, doctors at the Italian conference noted the skin separated and then adhered around the scalpel as human tissue would. The doctors said that fluid seeping from the cuts suggested the autopsy was either done within a few hours of death or the body was perhaps chilled quickly after death for transport to the autopsy location, which the cameraman said was in Ft. Worth, Texas. The fluid color was red like human blood, the cameraman told Santilli.
After the chest and abdomen were opened, the most dominant feature was a large, round, solid mass on top of all other internal organs. Dr. Marcel was sitting next to me during the screening and said, "I've never seen anything like that before. And where are the intestines?"
Doctors at the Italy meeting agreed that the internal organs and brain tissue were not recognizable as human. That opinion challenges the genetic anomaly hypothesis because human anatomy is generally consistent from body to body even if there are genetic problems such as Turner Syndrome. Tissue was placed in containers of fluid, most likely for preservation and later examination under a microscope. If tissue and/or organs were weighed before preservation, as normally done in autopsies, those scenes are not in the film excerpts.
One puzzle is a small, oval-shaped object cut from inside the chest cavity of both humanoids. Santilli says the cameraman described it as crystal-like, but knew nothing about pathology or chemistry results. A surgeon in the first autopsy stuck his finger inside the object as if it were hollow. According to Santilli, this crystal structure is more visible in the second autopsy.
Also more prominent in the second autopsy, Santilli said, is an examination of the pubic orifice in which a surgeon reached his gloved hand inside the body cavity and extracted a white glob that had strings or tendrils attached.
Santilli said the second humanoid appears slightly smaller than the first and its skin is more blotched and wrinkled. The humanoid skin color was grayish-pink, according to the cameraman, as humans might look after death. In both autopsies, the surgeon used a tweezer-like instrument to remove dark-colored membranes from the humanoids' eyes, and placed them in round containers of fluid. The exposed large eyeballs were rolled up into the head, so the iris/pupil configuration was not visible.
The humanoid had a very large wound in its right leg from the hip to the knee and what appears to be injury holes on the side of the left leg. If the cameraman's statement is correct -- that three humanoids were alive at the Socorro crash site, were taken to Wright Field near Cincinnati, Ohio for study, remained alive for one month before dying in early July 1947, and then were flown to Ft. Worth, Texas for both autopsies, which the cameraman claims he filmed -- then how was the humanoid injured? Speculation has included rumors that the being was shot by a powerful rifle or machine gun from behind, implying that the beings might have been considered military captives.
This same injured being's right hand appeared to be nearly severed from its arm. At the San Marino meeting, Dr. Corrado Malanga, a chemist from the University of Pizza, pointed out that when the video frames are studied carefully one by one, some early frames show the right hand severed and some later frames show the hand partially connected to the wrist. Yet, a clock visible in the surgery room and in a window reflection appears to define a forward time sequence of approximately an hour and 45 minutes. Was there regeneration of tissue? he asked. Or some other explanation? In all these severed locations -- the wrist, the leg and the opened torso -- it was difficult to discern skeletal structure because white bones were not visible.
Dr. Malanga also analyzed the broken panels and struts in the debris footage. On film, three rectangular panels about 24 inches long, 16 inches wide and 3 inches deep are laid on a table. The imprint of two six-fingered hands side by side are imbedded on the surface of each panel. At the center of each palm is a Y-shaped pattern of four small, raised circles or knobs. At the four divisions between the five fingers, there are four more slightly larger knobs. Those four seem to glow more brightly than the smaller ones. A single raised knob is placed exactly at the end of the thumb and each of the six fingers. Above the thumb knob is a small arc engraved in the panel. Carved above the five finger knobs is a longer arc. Above each finger arc are six more raised knobs in slightly different patterns per hand. A second arc is carved above those knobs.
"Those panels," Santilli told me, "are what the cameraman said the three live humanoids were clutching to their chests when the military and medical teams arrived in the early morning hours of June 3, 1947. The cameraman called the humanoids 'Freaks' and said 'each had hold of a box which they kept hold of in both arms close to their chests. They just lay there crying, holding the boxes. They were protective of their boxes, but we managed to get one loose with a firm strike at the head of a Freak with the butt of a rifle.'"
Dr. Malanga said that computer enhancement of the broken ends of I-beam struts and the panels in the debris footage showed the fractures were not like wood or metal, but more like a complex plastic polymer might break apart. The panels and I-beams reflected light as a man rotated them for the camera and Dr. Malanga hypothesized that perhaps the material was a metallic crystal or unknown crystal-plastic substance. Dr. Jesse Marcel emphasized that the 3-inch wide Socorro film I-beams are much larger than the small half-inch struts handed to him by his father back in July 1947.
Dr. Marcel also pointed out that the symbols along the sides of the broken Socorro I-beam struts are made up of lines and dots raised above the I-beam surface. He said he remembers that the violet-pink symbols he saw were solid images printed or carved into the I-beam. German publisher Michael Hesemann compared the I-beam symbols with Greek and ancient Phoenician. There were some similarities. "It was unfair," he said, "for the television programs in the U. S. and England to sarcastically suggest that 'video TV' was spelled out, as might be in a clever hoax." Hesemann pointed out that no one knows whether the symbols are read from right to left, left to right, or vertically from top to bottom or bottom to top.
Hesemann also received directions from the cameraman through Ray Santilli in July 1995 and traveled to a site ten miles southwest of Socorro, New Mexico. Hesemann showed photographs of a large area where vegetation was sparse compared to the surrounding environment. Hesemann said he thinks that the hot, possibly radioactive soil was dug out and filled back in. He plans to return in December 1995 for an archaeological expedition to dig into the site and "see if there is anything left from the 1947 U. S. military retrieval and cover-up of a UFO."
