In recent days, the Internet has carried claims that the "real" autopsy cameraman was named Jack Barrett, but that this man had died in Los Angeles in August. According to Ray Santilli, there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that the cameraman has died.
In answer to questions about further testing of the film stock, Santilli says the testing is complete, and he is confident that the film is genuine. Many clips have been sent to various media outlets, including FOX and film analyst Bob Shell. However, he rejected the suggestion that an entire reel of film should be turned over for analysis, saying that will never happen. Santilli seemed to believe that no one was clamoring for more information on testing, though he also said that some people would never be satisfied, no matter what tests were performed.
Santilli said that there were no other backers of the film project other than Volker Spielberg and himself. When asked if there were any truth to the rumor that Volker Spielberg was holding back reels of film and refusing to allow the tent footage and other autopsy sequences to be released to the public, Santilli said that he does not feel that that portion of the film will be released anytime soon. He implied that there might be problems verifying some of that film, which seems to contradict his belief that the film is authentic. Pressed for additional information on Spielberg, Santilli said it was a complicated issue and he could not comment further at this point.
Meanwhile, in a bulletin dated October 1, British researcher George Wingfield writes:
The credibility of the film footage has been struck an extremely damaging blow by the failure of Ray Santilli's company to deliver what was promised in its "Roswell" video, which was shipped sometime after August 26th. The video was advertised as "the original uncut raw footage," containing "all the viewable material taken from the reels of film we received from the man we believed was the Roswell cameraman". What was delivered fell far short of this promise.
The video contained the (second) autopsy sequence, which was first publicly shown on May 5th, and the sequence showing the "alien" symbols and the six-finger hand impression panels. With this was some background material on the Roswell events and interviews with Ray Santilli and Philip Mantle. Sequences never shown in public, such as the first alien autopsy and the so-called tent sequence are missing, although these definitely do exist and have been seen by quite a few people.
Weeks earlier Ray Santilli talked about the "debris field" footage and told Reg Presley and Philip Mantle, separately, that there was film of a crashed disk and debris, the crane used in the recovery and military personnel at the scene. What became of this? He also spoke of footage showing President Truman which, of course, has never materialised.
The failure now to deliver at least 50% of the known footage seriously damages Ray Santilli's credibility and surely casts doubt on the authenticity of the whole thing. I am told that only 400 videos were ordered in advance in the UK and all these have now been sent out free of charge. Orders from abroad, from the U.S. in particular, don't appear to have been met. An offer to refund money to those who are dissatisfied was made by Santilli and should prevent charges of misrepresentation. But many will infer that the easy explanation for this failure to deliver is that Santilli wished to avoid being charged with fraud.
Ray Santilli has said that he sold the first autopsy sequence independently to a German "collector of rare 16mm film" in order to finance other parts of his business. Other reports say Volker Spielberg made this sale. Santilli has also said that, although he was satisfied with the authenticity of the (second) autopsy sequence, he was not satisfied with that of the tent footage. He implied that it made the whole thing look bad and so he was not going to include it.
