 UFO enthusiast in N.Y. found unfit to stand trial

John Ford, a UFO enthusiast accused of masterminding a plot to
assassinate three  political officials in Suffolk County, was
found unfit to stand trial on Thursday. A judge  ordered that he
be sent to an upstate psychiatric institution for at least a
Ford, 48, was arrested a year ago on charges that he was scheming
to kill the three officials by putting radium in their cars and
lacing their toothpaste with radioactive metal.

Investigators said Ford wanted the three officials killed because
he believed they were  interfering with his efforts to contact
aliens from outer space. Ford's friends said he believed  that
visitors from outer space had crash-landed on Long Island and
that government officials were keeping the aliens at Brookhaven
National Laboratory in Upton and had created diversionary fires
in Long Island's Pine Barrens to conceal the crash landings.
