- From Edoardo
- In May 1993 a young artist in Pretare
d'Arquata (province of Ascoli Piceno) allegedly saw and photographed on
several different occasions a mystery humanoid entity, seemingly wounded,
which he heard crying.
- Some of the pictures mysteriously "burned",
some remained and he finally sold them to newspapers and TV.
- Ufologists and police were unimpressed
and finally got him to confess he had falsified the story, by making a
plasticine puppet and photographing it. He was even accused of diffusing
false and alarming news.
- The case had been closed for three years,
when it was resurrected in December 1996 by the sensationalist magazine
"Dossier Alieni" (edited by Roberto Pinotti and Maurizio Baiata)
who gave it the front page story... omitting the conclusions of their own
CUN investigator who had first demonstrated the hoax!
- That's all.
