Terry:

I wonder if I was the "researcher".

I had been putting notices in newspapers and visiting towns in
person looking for older reports.

As I noted in my blog a few years ago:

"In going through some old directories on a computer hard drive
before junking it, I found the following email that had been
bad-dated and was still "unread" in the Inbox. It was from 1995,
almost 15 years ago!"

The testimony is on my blog, word for word identical to what you
received:

This report is in my database of about 500 Manitoba-only UFO
reports.

There are seven cases with the location "Beausejour," which is
just a short distance from the Milner Ridge radar station that
has now been converted into a medium-security prison.
Five of these cases are from CUFOS' original UFOCAT.
