For Public Release: The James Mortellaro Case

March 9, 2004

At any given time the Intruders Foundation simultaneously
conducts more than a dozen ongoing investigations. It is unusual
for us to publicly take a position on cases while investigations
are underway. Such investigations may take years, depending on a
subject's willingness and proximity to our office, the number of
individuals involved, and the types of evidence surrounding the
case. As one would expect, we focus most of our attention on
cases which present multiple participants, eyewitnesses, and
physical and/or supporting medical evidence.

One such case that appeared to meet all of these criteria was
that of Jim Mortellaro. (Our use of Mr. Mortellaro's real name
is in no way a violation of his confidentiality as he has
voluntarily been using his name over the internet and on radio
broadcasts for a number of years.)

For some time now the Intruders Foundation has been
investigating the case of Mr. Mortellaro and seeking
documentation which he had promised would substantiate the case.

This case was of great interest because of the alleged medical
injuries resulting from his abduction in 2001.

Unfortunately, Mr. Mortellaro has never produced credible
evidence in support of these claims.

Furthermore, he provided us with two allegedly official
documents which have proved to be fabrications.

Therefore, Budd Hopkins and the Advisory Committee of the
Intruders Foundation no longer consider this case worthy of

Though Mr. Mortellaro may in fact have had abduction experiences
and may have suffered physical trauma as a result of these
experiences, his questionable credibility has forced us to
abandon his case.

As always, the Intruders Foundation continues to apply a
detailed, cautious and methodical protocol to the consideration
and investigation of all potential abduction cases. We thank you
all for your ongoing interest and support of our work.

& The Intruders Foundation Advisory Committee
