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: http://tinyurl.com/bpykg2x 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. Listen to 'Strange Days...
