[May 28, 1996] -- As reported previously in CNI News, the investigative team headed by Houston-based hypnotherapist Derrel Sims and Southern California physician Dr. Roger Leir removed unusual objects, possibly "alien implants," from two people last August. So far, nine months later, almost nothing has been said about the tests that were to have been run on these objects, giving rise to speculation that nothing noteworthy was found.
CNI News asked Dale Musser, a close associate of Derrel Sims in Houston, to clarify the status of the testing.
"The first round of tests have been completed at a cost of over $16,000 by a number of scientists," Musser wrote back. "We are witholding the results until they can be confirmed by a second set of scientists and tests."
CNI News pointed out that public impatience and suspicion was mounting.
Musser replied: "At this point we don't particulary care what the impatient public thinks or says. We get blasted if we don't release information prematurely, and then get fried when we do release information without all the tests being run. We decided that from now on we're going to wait until all tests have been completed and confirmed. That way only the impatient will be frustrated, and no one can say we didn't follow ALL the scientific protocols.
"As you can see by the cost of the first round of tests, this is not cheap, and finding qualified scientists to do the tests and then arranging for it takes time. It doesn't happen over night," he said.
CNI News asked for any details of the test results that could be divulged at this time. Musser replied: "I will say that what the test results show will raise more than a few eyebrows (if the test results are confirmed). Even I was surprised, and I was the one who first suspected that we'd find nerve fibers around implants."
Dr. Roger Leir had previously announced that organic material around the removed objects contained unexpected amounts of nerve tissue. Musser would not elaborate on those findings, but added: "As it appears now, the August 95 objects are definitely NOT common everyday objects."
Derrel Sims has repeatedly promised CNI News access to further information as soon as test results can be released. At the moment it is not clear how soon that will be.
Meanwhile, a second set of objects, removed from three people by the Sims/Leir team on May 18, are also undergoing testing, but no results have yet been announced.
CNI News editor Michael Lindemann spoke by phone on May 29 with one of the women from whom an object was removed on May 18. Lindemann asked her if she felt any different following the removal of the object from her leg. She said she had not noticed any change at all in her physical or mental condition. The surgery had been very simple and had not caused any complications or after-effects.
This woman believes herself to be an abductee, but said she was not aware of any abduction episodes since the surgery. Nor had she had any unusual dreams or any other occurrence that might be related to the removal of the object, she said.
CNI News will continue to follow this developing story.
