Walter N. Webb, a world-class investigator, conducted an on-site
investigation on behalf of NICAP (National Investigations
Committee on Aerial Phenomena) under my leadership at the time.
A detailed report is on file, archived by CUFOS in Chicago. Come
to think of it, it might be appropriate for a good article in
International UFO Reporter. The case did not 'smell of a hoax'
at all. Webb contributed a summary of the case that is included
in my book, The UFO Evidence, Volume II.
