This is an incident that has been investigated and analyzed over
the years, and I have the original taped interview of Charles
Hickson and Calvin Parker, Jr. by the Pascagoula, MS Sheriff's
Department, obtained from Wendy Connors and William Jones, and
posted on my (very outdated) web site. This particular audio
clip should be found here:


There are a handful of other audio clips that may be of
interest, and the listing can be found at:


As I recall, Parker was more affected by the encounter, and both
men had been drinking through the night. Psychotherapist Peter
(Steven) Resta has given presentations on this case in Maryland,
and I believe he interviewed Parker.
