On Monday, October 23, 1995 the Jacques Pradel Show on French TV Network TF1 presented new and potentially damaging information concerning Ray Santilli's "Roswell Autopsy" film footage.
Ray Santilli has claimed from the beginning that he purchased the autopsy video from "the cameraman" along with rare Elvis footage. Ray Santilli also issued a statement from the alleged cameraman in late July of this year.
TF1 revealed on the program that Santilli actually came to Cleveland, Ohio to purchase rare Elvis footage from the owner of the footage, Bill Randle. Randle is now an attorney, but in 1955 he was a disc jockey who promoted concerts at high schools in the Cleveland area. Most of the concerts were filmed. The footage that Santilli was after was one of Elvis' first known recorded performances, when he shared billing with Bill Haley and Pat Boone. This footage was obtained by Santilli after a long negotiation process with Bill Randle on July 4, 1993.
In an interview with Bill Randle, the French TV network uncovered that while Bill Randle was indeed the owner of the footage, he was NOT the cameraman. Those duties fell to one JACK BARNETT, a newsreel photographer who worked in the midwest in the 1950s. Jack Barnett, it was revealed by Randle, is dead. French TV reported that Barnett died in 1957 of heart disease and was never in the military.
It was TF1's intention to suprise Ray Santilli with these facts, but it appears that Santilli was prepared for the allegation. According to TF1, the latest version of Santilli's ever-changing story is that the cameraman did not sell the Elvis footage to Santilli, but that the cameraman did call Santilli in his hotel room. In the opinion of this reporter, the revelation of Bill Randle and the fact that the cameraman's name is Jack Barnett is suspiciously coincidental, given previous claims. Mr. Santilli should not be allowed to wiggle out of this story. I have tried to contact Mr. Santilli in his London office today for a comment but was informed that he was out of the country.
TF1 has also located the elusive and mysterious Volker Spielberg, who is now the purported owner of the autopsy footage. Spielberg was reached in his current home country of Austria and is said to have told TF1 that he does own all the reels of film and that when told that the world deserves to know the truth, he responded: "I f--k the world. The world is full of egoism, so am I."
I will continue to follow this story as many other researchers around the world are doing also.
