POSTMASTER:Send form 3579 to advise changeofaddress to The MUFON UFOJOURNAL, 103 Oldtowne Rd.,Seguin, Texas 78155.FROM THE EDITORTo say that some humanoid and close encounter UFO casescontain elementsof "high strangeness" is to understatethe matter.Some of the reports can only be described as "bizarre" and"incredible." We serve notice here that their inclusion intheJournaldoes not necessarily imply "belief" or acceptance, only a convictionthat such reports when carefully investigated deserve seriousconsideration in the attempt to unravel the baffling UFO mystery.Some may prove to be hoaxes, or hallucinations, but some mayalsobe true and, therefore, the most important data of all.The wholepoint is that we wontknow what to think without investigation, andwriting off such reports as "impossible" would substitutepreconception for scientific study. We do not intendto ignore closeencounters of the first and second kind, examplesofwhich appear inthis issue, since they constitute the basis for even consideringthepossible validity of CE-III cases. Even if we make the unlikelyassumption that all humanoidreports are false, there still remains alarge body of data establishingUFOs as a serious and importantproblem. We intend to explore al! facets of the UFO mystery in acontinuing search for the truth.In this issueTHE HUMANOID OF QUEBRADILLAS 3By Sebastian Robiou LamarcheCLOSE-RANGE SIGHTING IN AFRICA 5By Cynthia HindSHEEP FARMERS SEE UFO RENDEZVOUS (News) 6UFO RELATED INFORMATION FROM FBI FILES 7By Bruce S.

THE HUMANOID OF QUEBRADILLASBy Sebastian Robiou Lamarchc(Submitted to MUFON HumanoidStudy Group and translated by Lex Mebane)On Tuesday, July 12, 1977,Senor Adrian de Olmos Ordonez, 42,was the witness of the strangeappearance of a humanoid3.5 feet tall,from the gallery of his house where hewas resting between 8:30 and 9:00 atnight, in the town of Quebradillas,Puerto Rico.This event was made widelyknown the next day by the principalradio stations and in the newspaper ElVocero. On Saturday the 16th, wesucceeded in having a long interviewwith the witness, and with theneighbors who were witnesses of thefinal part of the appearance, as well asmaking an excursion to the spot whereit happened. In our investigation wewere accompanied by our friend JorgeMartin, who, with his skill in drawing,was able to illustrate graphically thestatements of the principalwitness. Wewill now put down the main statementsof Sr. de Olmos as to how theappearance occurred:On Tuesday the 12th, around8:30 or 9 at night, I was on the balconyof my house, resting and taking thefresh air. Suddenly, something came upfrom the finca (farm) which is oppositethe house. There emerged from thedarkness of the place a very smallfigure, passing underneath the barbed-wire fence. At first I thought it was achild who was playing...but then Inoticed that hewasa verystrange beingbecause of his equipment...and Irealized that he was someone Iwouldhave to treat cautiously.He came on,walking normally, up to the light upto a street-light post which wasopposite the house. I then called to mydaughter Irasema, while he wasmovingcautiously to the post, which bore amercury light. I asked her to get me apencil and paper, to see ifIcouldsketchthe figure. I told her to put on the lightinthe room, but she made a mistake andturned on the outside light. Now the"animal" was almost up to the lamp-post, but on seeing the light he wasfrightened. He looked up toward thelight, and Ithink that he was comingasiflooking for something an energy orcurrent because he was makingdirectly for the lamp post. In his righthand he had a small object that wasshiny. The light fell on the crystalhelmet that he wore, and showed thatitwas a tremendous thing. Then, whenmy light came on, he started runningtoward the fence. He passed under thebarbed wire and then he stopped. Heput his hands on his belt, in front, andthere lighted up a box that he had onhisback, like a knapsack, producing asound like that of an electric drill, andthen he rose up and went awaytowardthe trees. The neighborsand my familyby this time had come out, and saw thelights goingfrom one tree to anotherforabout ten minutes, after which theywere lost from sight.Details Of the HumanoidThe strange being was 3.5 feet.tall. According to the witness, he sawhim when he came out of the darknessof the farm directly opposite hisresidence. The humanoid bent overand passed under a barbed-wirefence,"walking normally, like a child." Hisproportions were normal except thathis arms were short. His whole bodywas covered with a green garmentthatseemed to be "inflated by air," becauseit was not fastened to the body of thecreature. His head was covered by ahelmet of metallic appearance, whichon its upper part changed intoa sort ofantenna, on the point of which "therewas a little light or flame." From thehelmet itself, of a lighter green than thegarment, there came out on each side"something that looked like pointedears." The helmet was joined to thegarment by a dark fringe at neck level.He had some kind of crystal (glass)from his forehead to his neck in front,and it strongly reflected the light of thestreet lamp, makingit impossible to seethe creatures face.The humanoid walkedcautiously toward the lamp post,reaching within about 10 feet of it, andabout 30 feet from where the witnesswas. At this moment the witness wasable to note that the strange being hejdsomething "the size of a matchbox,shiny, ending in a point" in his righthand. Meanwhile he was looking fixedlytoward the lamppost.Thisaction madethe witness think that the humanoidwanted insome manner to test,or take,electrical energy.It was then that by a mistake, thewitnesss daughter, Irasema de OlmosPadin, 16, lighted the bulb on thebalcony. Then the humanoid "startedrunning back to where he had comefrom," passed underneath the fencewires, ard stopped, turning hisback tothe witness.He was able to note that onhis back, like a knapsack, thehumanoidwore "a little box fastened on with twostraps," and that he had a tail which didnot reach the ground. (See thedrawing.)Immediately the strange being"raised his hands to the belt a wide,heavy belt that he was wearing" andimmediately there lightedup, inthe boxon his back, "two red lights and twoblue ones," giving the impression thatthey were turning. Between the twopairs of lights the box had "an openingor something." When the lights wenton, from the lower part of the objectthere emerged two downward-directedjets oflight, which the witnesssays wereof the color of "welding-machinesparks." At the same time he heard ahumming noise like that of a smallelectric drill.Next, the humanoid rose up inthe direction of the trees nearest thefarmhouse, to a height estimated as10-12 feet. At thistime the daughter of the(Continued onnext page) 3 4. (Humanoid Continued)witness came out on the balcony aridwas able to see the lights coming outfrom the supposed propulsiveapparatus. Then the wife, DomingaPadin de Olmos, and the son, RafaelEdgardo, of the witness also cameoutside.What Happened NextAccording to our inquiry, thehumanoid moved off horizontally,"lifting up his tail," and "likeSuperman," about 420 feet, thedistance at which are found the firsttrees on the farm. Bythis time a groupof neighbors had gathered, listening towhat Sr. de Olmos was saying.Amongthe neighbors there were: Marvel,Daniela and Josefina Gonzalez, Luis,Carlos, and Iris Cortes, MercedesMedina de Leon,Minerva, Betsaida andIvi Mena Lugo.Allof themwere able tosee, during the 10 minutes following,that the lights emitted bythe box on thecreatures back "were jumping fromtree to tree," at times coming down tothe level of the ground. According tothe principalwitness, they were able toobserve that there wasanother"similarlight, doing the same." This makeshimthink that there was another "animallike the one I saw" which, according tohis impression, was"helping the other,"because he had hadthe impression that"the little dingus on his back wasntworking well" when it was lighted up,about 40 feet away from the witness.Finally, the phenomenondisappeared, but not before all theneighbors had noted that the cattle ofthe farm had "gone crazy," runningfrom one place to anothe
