American Calvin Parker Jr, 58, claims he never fully recovered after encountering a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s 40 years ago, in an episode in which the creatures are described as “crab-legged” monsters.
“This is something I really didn’t want to have happened,” Parker said on the anniversary of the episode. The incident, which happened with friend Charles Hickson, made news, started a wave of U̳F̳O̳ reports across the country and became one of the most scrutinized cases of its kind.
However, while Hickson told the story of the supernatural encounter to all who would listen, Calvin always chose silence, something broken only two years after Charles’ de̳a̳t̳h̳.
Parker was 18 years old when he went fishing with Hickson after work, and he says he was surprised by a blue-lit U̳F̳O̳, which contained three creatures with gray skin and crab-claw hands, which grabbed him by the forearm and levitated him to the bottom. ship. Inside, the American says that something resembling a giant eye seemed to be examining him, while Parker was conscious but paralyzed.
“They examined me like any doctor would,” Parker reported. Back at the place where it all happened, the man needed to take three shots of distillate to calm down and be able to remember the story.
Jackson County Police Officers heard the Americans’ report and thought, at first, that the pair were drunk.
In an interrogation room, the police even left a tape recorder hidden to see if they could get proof of the “lie”, but the method was not successful. “They looked very worried,” said then-Captain Glenn Ryder, who still works as a county police officer. “I don’t know what happened to them, but I know you don’t fake fear, and they were terrified.”
Skeptical author Philip Klass believes the Hickson and Parker story is false. In his book “U̳F̳O̳s Explained”, the man points out that Hickson changed some details of his version a few times, and that the operator who ran the polygraph on the man was not capable enough for the task.
After moving to Moss Point, Mississippi in 2006 and Hickson’s de̳a̳t̳h̳ in 2011, Parker has lived in anonymity and claims that 40 years after the episode, he still has fuzzy thoughts about the night of 1974.
At one point, he wasn’t sure the creatures were a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s – they could have been demons, according to him. “I believe a lot in God and that there is good and evil”, concluded Parker.
