Dear Jerry and Listers:

All this new stuff was long-waited and adds nearly nothing
concrete to this debate. I was expecting something much stronger
than this, as repeatedly promised that we would have. A
'negative witness'? Skeptics always claim that witness' reports
aren't good enough as evidence, and now they take into
consideration a 'negative witness' report.

Well, all the holes that you mention, Jerry, also clearly
noticed by several colleagues here in Brazil, are being
addressed this right minute by the _only_ UFO researcher in my
country that really investigated the Trindade Case in full, not
superficially, not over the internet, not several decades after
it happened.

I am referring to veteran researcher Marco Antonio Petit, co-
editor of the Brazilian UFO Magazine, an investigator who spent
some 30 years devoting to the Trindade Case, and many others. He
interviewed Barauna personally a few times, spoke with many
other witnesses, went deep into the documentation and have been
examining all info available about the episode since the 80s.

Petit has easily broken all info published against Trindade
Case's validity, including the most recent one, by Barauna's own
nephew, published in the magazine's website.

It will be interesting to see again that the new 'evidences' and
'testimonies' in this new attempt to discredit one of the most
serious Brazilian UFO cases feel down as easily as they are so
eagerly brought up. In a couple of week.
