Subject: In Memorium... Betty Cash

Dear CAUS Members:

In 1981 I represented three People in a lawsuit against the
United States Government for injuries that resulted from their
contact with an unusual aerial object.

Betty Cash, Vicky Landrum and Colby Landrum are the only three
People to ever sue our government for injuries from a UFO.  On
the eighteenth anniversary of her encounter, Betty Cash died.

Betty Cash was a warrior and heroine.  She fought the US
government and, even in defeat, showed a spirit and tenacity
that will now be her epitaph.  CAUS and I pay tribute to a very
brave lady...and a victim of this government's callousness to
the rights of the individual.  The following is the announcement
of her death:

SEGUIN, TX 78155

December 30, 1998

For Immediate Release:


Betty Cash, one of three people injured in a UFO close encounter
near Huffman, Texas, on December 29, 1980, died on the 18th
anniversary of the event, in Birmingham, Alabama.  She had been
in poor health ever since the encounter. At the time of the
event, Mrs. Cash operated her own businesses near Dayton, Texas.

Betty Cash, along with Vickie Landrum and grandson Colby
Landrum, encountered a huge UFO accompanied by military
helicopters on a dark road in the east Texas Piney Woods.  They
were exposed to radiation from the object, which caused extreme
medical problems such as burns, eye damage, hair loss, diarrhea,
and vomiting.  Although they and others observed a large number
of military helicopters along with the UFO, the U.S. Government
refused to acknowledge the event or assist them in any way.

After the encounter, Betty Cash was hospitalized and treated for
burns and the other maladies.  The extent of the injuries was so
great, she was forced to close her businesses and never worked
again.   He life became a series of hospital stays, many of them
in intensive care.  Eventually, she developed cancer, which was
successfully treated.  In November 1998, Mrs. Cash suffered a
stroke.  On December 29, during her recovery, an unusual turn of
events claimed her life.

Mrs. Cash was a hero in the fight against government UFO
cover-ups and brought hope to other victims of UFO incidents.
She was devoted to family and friends and never allowed her
illness to prevent her from helping others to cope with the
trauma of UFO close encounters.

For further information, contact John Schuessler, MUFON's Deputy
Director of Administration, and primary investigator of Mrs.
Cash's UFO incident, at (303) 948-6224, FAX (303) 948-6225, or
e-mail at: schuessler@mho.net.


Betty Cash will be missed...but never forgotten.
