The late Leonard Stringfield, who died in 1994, was a ufologist who firmly believed that since the 1940s the US government had secretly recovered a number of crashed UFOs and dead aliens, which were stored and preserved at various bases. military across the country – many at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. Stringfield, too, has received a number of accounts relating to the issue of covert and shocking human experimentation on people with disabilities; experimentation that was related to the Roswell affair. One such story was passed on to Stringfield by a highly controversial figure in ufology. His name: Timothy Cooper, a resident of Big Bear Lake, Calif., who left the field of UFO research years ago. Many a ufologist has little regard for Cooper, suspecting that many of the documents he provided to the UFO community in the mid-1990s were forgeries, not the highly classified documents that they were meant to be. They were wrong, there is no doubt about that. But, Cooper himself was not the forger. It is the era of “pre-documents” that we must examine, however. She paints a very different picture of Cooper than many ufologists have accepted.
Tim Cooper claimed to Stringfield in 1990 that he had many “old-timer” type sources – some of them assured Cooper that, yes, aliens did indeed crash-land outside Roswell during of the summer of 1947. Others, however, quietly hinted to Cooper that the truth was far more controversial: a storyline involving human guinea pigs – Japanese and disabled people – and the creation of disinformation programs on the theme UFOs and fake pro-UFO documents to hide the down to earth truth of the Roswell enigma. Also in 1990, Cooper provided Stringfield with a specific account which the latter decided to keep firmly secret until the following year, 1991, when he published it in a lengthy report on stories of crashed and secretly recovered spacecraft. The story is about a woman Cooper first met in 1989. He describes her only as a nurse and gives her the alias “Mary”. This pseudonym was not far removed from the real name of another nurse connected to the story. Decades ago, Cooper’s source is said to have worked at what is now the National Laboratory in Los Alamos, New Mexico.
Not an alien in sight. Only a terrible secret experiment.
In Cooper’s own words in 1990, and which Stringfield published: She casually mentioned to me over coffee that “bodies” were periodically sent to Los Alamosfrom late 1945 to 1947. I asked her if she had seen these ‘bodies’ and she said no, but that others had seen them. I asked him where these “bodies” came from. She replied that she did not know, but that these were, according to rumour, human experiments for research in biology and nuclear medicine. She thought they might have come from Japan after the war. I asked her why she thought that. She replied that they were small bodies with deformed heads and limbs. The eyes were abnormally large, he was told. She saw them in the morgue, very briefly, for a few minutes, some distance away. I asked her why she was allowed to attend autopsies. She replied that she had been asked to help with the preparation and cleaning. I asked her again about the bodies. She replied that they were transported in special planes equipped with refrigerators to prevent the bodies from decomposing. The flesh was badly burned and charred. There was no hair on the heads and they had a gray-yellow color. That’s all she knew. »
What all of this demonstrates is that the history of Roswell becomes increasingly grim as we begin to examine “the human aspects” of what happened at Roswell in July 1947, and as we dismiss “the extraterrestrial aspects”.
