Whilst some subscribers will previously have seen an article headed,
The Human Mutilation Factor, by Don Ecker, many subscribers will not
and for that reason I have reproduced it here.

I would be interested to know if anyone can date this article.

[START]

The Human Mutilation Factor
by Don Ecker

In the last forty years of UFO research, one of the most baffling
questions that have plagued researchers has been "Is the UFO Phenomenon
dangerous to humanity?" Over the years, there have been numerous cases
where the phenomenon has figured into human deaths, but as a rule, most
cases have been officially ruled accidental. When speaking of cases
where death has resulted, usually most assume cases where military
pilots have died as a result of "chasing" the phenomenon. One of the
most famous of these military chases that is discussed when ever the
subject of death and UFOs is raised, is the famous "Mantell Case". This
case is so well known that I will not discuss it here, but there are
many others. In one of the less well known cases, during the mid
1950's, a military jet interceptor was observed on radar being
"absorbed" into a UFO over the Great Lakes. No trace of pilot or
aircraft was ever found. In another case reported in the excellent work
"Clear Intent" was the case of the "Cuban MIG Incident". In this case a
Cuban MIG was locking on his weapons radar when the aircraft exploded
in mid*air. The wing man was certain that the UFO had fired some type
of weapon, but other than the jet exploding, no other smoke, flame or
other obvious weapon firing was observed.

The matter of either overt or covert hostility on the part of UFOs has
always been treated warily by serious researchers. On the one hand, if
the enigma is hostile, then several questions must be faced. What if
anything should the powers in authority tell the public? Is the
government capable of handling a threat of this type? Is the public
ready to face an issue as potentially terrifying as a "possible threat
from somewhere else?" Other than incidents involving military
involvement, have there been cases where civilians have been injured or
killed during some type of UFO encounter? Is it possible that the
reported cases of UFOs and their occupants abducting unwilling humans
for some type of medical or genetic experimentation could be true? Now,
if any of this is factual, then what ramifications do the Human Race
face in light of the above?

According to Mr. Phil Imbrogno, during the research that led to the
writing of "NIGHT SIEGE The Hudson Valley UFO Sightings" by Dr. J.
Allen Hynek, Philip Imbrogno, and Bob Pratt, Imbrogno has stated that
on several occasions, Hynek specified that he wanted no mention of the
dozens of human abductions that they had already uncovered at that
time, to be mentioned in the book. Hynek was afraid of the adverse
publicity if word of this aspect leaked out to the public. After Hyneks
death, Imbrogno stated publicly on Compuserve and other public forums,
facts of abductions, animal mutilations, and EVEN several cases of
mysterious deaths of humans, that he indicated COULD possibly be linked
to the UFO Phenomenon.

While researching several stories for UFO Magazine, I interviewed a
number of prominent UFOlogists, over the last several months, and in
each case, the question of human deaths, in connection with animal
mutilations, invariably was raised. Most readers of this text will be
familiar with Mr. John Keel, who many regard as the last of the Great
UFOlogists. From the earliest days of modern UFOlogy, Keel has been a
force to reckon with. The author of numerous books that address various
aspects of UFOlogy, and magazine articles too numerous to mention, Keel
has a unique slant on the subject that most will never experience.
According to Keel, the phenomenon has always had an unexplained
hostility towards humans, that have led to untold numbers of deaths.
While Keel will be the first to explain that he rejects the ET
hypothesis, he does not doubt the phenomenon a bit. In what many
UFOlogists consider as one of Keels best works "The Mothman
Prophecies", E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc. 1975, Keel related report after
report of animal mutilations involving cattle, dogs, horses and sheep,
and also related what were called "vampire killings" of four humans in
Yugoslavia, were the victims were "mutilated and drained of blood".

After having spoken to John Ford, the Chairman of the Long Island UFO
Network, for a news story for UFO Magazine, I became even more
convinced that the aspect of potential UFO hostility should be
investigated. Ford relayed a numbing number of animal mutilations,
human disappearances, human abductions, covert Federal involvement in
areas that suffered high numbers of animal mutilations, and even armed
military helicopters that chased UFOs over civilian communities. Ford,
who is a officer of the Federal Court system, did investigations into
the disappearances of mostly young adults over a year period, in areas
of high UFO overflights, and after having several personal friends who
were police officers of the local municipalities look into the
situation, came to the conclusion that the facts were being suppressed.
The reason given was that there was "no need to panic the public."
Although no iron clad proof can be made for direct UFO intervention,
the circumstances are extremely suspect.

After growing up in an age where the entire human race can be decimated
by nuclear, biological and chemical weapons, the human race somehow
manages to keep slogging on. I have seen more people "panicked" over a
shortage of gasoline than imminent nuclear holocaust, yet somehow when
the subject of UFOs crop up, the government doesn't want to panic
anyone. It really makes me wonder what they know, that I should. I
really don't think that they are going to talk to anyone soon, as you
shall soon see.

In January, 1989, it came to the attention of the MUFON State Director
of Idaho, Mr. Don Mason, that cattle mutilations had occurred once
again in the southeastern section of Idaho. After an investigation by a
MUFON investigator, the facts were as follows. The animals ( two
cattle, same night, but each owned by different ranchers ) were
"somehow" killed, sexual organs removed, body fluids drained, patches
of hide "surgically" removed. All the appearances of what is today
considered to be a classic case of animal mutilation. As of this date (
February 15, 1989 ) the final lab reports are not back yet, but already
the Sheriffs Department has labeled it a "cult killing." No tracks,
tire or human, around the animals even though it had just rained, no
unusual activity reported by the ranchers that evening, and one animal
was found next to an occupied house. One of the ranchers admitted that
this was the second time he had been "hit" by the mysterious
mutilators. The last incident had only been a bit over a year
previously, and they were worried enough that all had their "deer
rifle" within easy reach.

After having been personally involved in an investigation of cattle
mutilations as a police officer back in 1982, I was very familiar with
the "cult" theory of perpetrators. The Idaho Department of Law
Enforcement drags it out every time there is a new rash of mutilations.
The problem is, and every one is aware of it, that no one has yet been
brought to trial, or arrested yet for these crimes. Out here in the
west, people know that you are flirting with a ranchers bullet if you
are caught fooling around with the ranchers cattle. They are his
livelihood, and he will defend it. Yet, the mutilations keep occurring,
and no one is any the wiser, or are they?

With the subject of animal mutilations fresh in everyones mind, I was
once again speaking to Don Mason, when he informed me that the
investigator that had been assigned to the above mentioned case had
come across a very mysterious death of a man back in 1979. According to
the report, two hunters in the Bliss and Jerome area of Idaho had
literally stumbled across the nude body of a man that had been
hideously mutilated. The body was in the literal middle of nowhere,
nude except for a pair of underpants, his sexual organs had been
removed, his lips sliced off, and several other classic mutilation
cuts. Although he was in very rugged country, his bare feet were not
marked as if he had walked in that terrain, but yet no other tracks,
animal or human were evident anywhere. After the police were notified,
an intensive search was mounted, and miles away, the mans possessions
were recovered, yet no one yet knows how the body ended up where it was
found, or even more importantly, what happened to him. It should be
noted that this area also had over the years, many unexplained UFO
reports and cattle mutilations.

Now I must explain that I had very mixed feelings about whether I
wished to attempt to explore this subject any further, or allow
sleeping dogs to lie. On the one hand, I wanted more than anything to
discover just what was occurring, and on the other, I realized that
this had the potential to backfire on someone that disturbed the status
quo. I was familiar with reports of human abductions and mutilations
that had surfaced in the last several years in reports such as the Lear
documents, Grudge 13 reports and others, but yet I was not sure what I
believed, or even if there was anything to believe. I ran across a
friend that was still employed with a police department in this area
who was a detective. I had mentioned to him the recent cattle
mutilations, and what I suspected in the above mentioned case of a
human that had been mutilated. Scot had also been involved in the last
several years with several cases of mutilations that he had been called
upon to investigate, always with negative results. He was as curious
about this phenomenon as I was, and since he was still an active duty
police officer, he had access to the department computer, to access the
NCIC system that is maintained in Washington D. C. by the FBI. After
giving Scot the criteria for a search of unexplained human deaths, that
involved factors of mutilation, I asked that the search go back to at
least 1973, involving this area of the Northwest. Scot ( not his real
name ) ran the request through the department computer. As he mentioned
at the time, he had expected to get realms of reports back that we
would have to wade through, to get to the reports that would be are
further study. Scot ended up requesting that the inquiry be run back to
1970, and involve not only Idaho, but also Utah, Nevada, Oregon, and
Washington states. Because of the magnitude of this search, Scot stated
that it would take about one week to get the results back into his
department. As a side note, for anyone that is not familiar with the
NCIC system, it is a national data bank for Law enforcement agencies
all across the United States. It is maintained and controlled by the
Federal Burea of Investigation, at FBI headquarters, in Washington D.
C. On the 14th of February, Scot contacted me in person, and appeared
very troubled. His exact words were that "something is really screwy,
Don." "I got the request back from NCIC on Monday, and there has gotta
be something wrong. They told me that they had NO unsolved murders at
all, zero, that met that criteria. THAT ANY FURTHER REQUESTS WILL HAVE
TO BE MADE BY VOICE, TELEPHONE CALL, WITH PROPER AUTHORIZATION.
Somebody is sitting on something, big as Hell." I also knew that
something was as screwy as hell. After all, anybody that has had any
dealing with law enforcement knows about the "Green River Killer" in
Washington state. This serial killer is credited with at least 30 to 40
murders of young women, and to this date, the case is as big a mystery
as ever. Many of the killings showed some types of mutilation, and if
nothing else, at least some of these homicides should have shown up.

Once more, as a side note, I had been warned by a prominent UFOlogist,
that there was a lid "screwed down tighter than you would believe in
regards to human mutes." I also was warned that in order to break
through the secrecy, was going to be a long and sometimes weary job,
but that if enough persistence was applied, then it was possible to get
to the bottom of this facet of the UFO enigma. Do I think that this can
be solved, along with the rest of the puzzle? Yes, I do, because I
think that the secrecy can only be maintained for so long, and then no
longer. I also believe very strongly that only if the entire UFO
community works in concert will this be accomplished, and the
infighting and arguments MUST CEASE for the good of us all.

On the ParaNet system and on Compuserve, I wrote and uploaded a file
entitled LIGHT.TXT, and in UFO Magazine Vol. 3, No. 5 I called for a
UFO summit to be held in order to get the UFO community organized and
to present a unified front. Only by a unified front, and calling for
Congressional hearings, will this lid ever get torn off, and the truth
that is suppressed be brought to the light of day. Any help from the
members will be greatly appreciated, and I can be reached at ParaNet
RHO at the following number: 1)208)338)9187. Also I can be reached on
Compuserve by EMail, and my user number is: 74270,3360. Anyone with ANY
INFORMATION is requested to contact me at the above addresses as soon
as possible. The secrecy game has gone on long enough. It is past time
to get to the bottom of this. Forty years IS LONG ENOUGH.

The mention of Don's article was prompted by some private e-mail I
recently received:

"Just saw your note on early Cattle Mutilations.

An interesting note here in the US. The FBI crime data net now
classifies all cases of Human Mutilations that have been found. Last
couple years a number of bodies have been found that fit into the
methodology of the cattle deaths. If you ask for data as a police
agency, you are immediately investigated and warned not to touch this
subject or again request data.

Makes you wonder?"


Can anyone possibly confirm these claims or add anything at all to
this.

Cheers,

James
