Oklahoma Man believed to have died from spontaneous human combustion

Sequoyah County, Oklahoma officials believe that 65-year-old Danny Vanzandt likely died from spontaneous human combustion after they found his burned body in his home but could find no other fire damage or evidence of accelerant use (temperatures in excess of 3,000 degrees would be required to burn the body to ashes).  The Tulsa, Oklahoma man was found after neighbors noticed smoke coming from his home.  Fireman arrived and attempted to put out what they initially thought was a pile of trash.  Soon they realized that the “pile of trash” was a human body.  Nothing else in the house had been burned, including the floor beneath the body, and there were no signs of an accelerant being used in the fire. Sequoyah County Sheriff Ron Lockhart told

Meteor in Russia explodes, injuring hundreds of people, only hours before record-breaking comet passes by Earth

A powerful meteor with the power of a 300 kiloton atomic bomb blasted the Russian region of the Urals early on Friday about 9:20 AM local time injuring over 1,000 people, hospitalizing more than 100 persons (two critically injured), damaging several hundred building structures (including a zinc factory that appears to have taken a direct hit), and shattering countless windows.  The meteor, or meteors, released several kilotons of energy above the Chelyabinsk region, a city about 930 miles east of Moscow that is also home to several nuclear and chemical weapons disposal facilities.  The towns of Emanzhelinsk, Etkul, Kopeisk, Korkino, Chebarkul, Yuzhnouralsk, Zlatoust, Troitsk, Uvelsky and Krasnoarmeisky were also impacted.  The meteor hit just hours before Asteroid 2012DA14 made its closest recorded pass of an

Recorded audio evidence emerges proving police officials purposely set Chris Dorner cabin on fire

As we predicted a few days ago, given rumors that special ops units designed to kill on sight had been deployed to California, Chris Dorner would not be captured but instead, would be killed on sight.  Now evidence is mounting that the cabin fire that killed Dorner was purposely set by police (or military) officials in an effort to kill or flush out an already injured Dorner.  Many suspected official arson was in progress when news cameras were instructed to not shoot close-ups of the cabin which Dorner fled into and media were instructed to stop Tweeting about the events taking place (the official tweet has since been deleted).  In a veritable replay of the infamous Waco incident, now he have received transcripts of television news audio

Horrifying giant spider web wall (populated with thousands of spiders) carried by wind leads to “spider rain” [VIDEO]

If you are deathly afraid of spiders…  No wait, if you are even a little bit scared of spiders then you may want to ensure you have a path cleared to the doorway before watching this video.  The video below was shot by 20-year-old Erick Reis in the town of Santo Antonio de Plantina in Brazil and shows a spider web “wall” over 6 stories high by hundreds of feet wide covered with tens of thousands of spiders just waiting to drop on unsuspecting prey below.  Reis shot the video at a wedding party and was so horrified at the sight, he forgot his camera at the party. The spiders shown in the video are of the Anelosimus eximius variety, a genus known for its communal

Gary McKinnon extradition still blocked – alien secrets he found on U.S. government computers continue to interest us

46-year-old Gary McKinnon of the UK is accused of of hacking into 97 United States military and space agency computers over a 13-month period from February 2011 through March 2002 during which he deleted operating system files (which caused the hacked computers to crash) and copied account data, and files, to his computer.  In November 2002, he was indicted by a grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia on seven counts of computer-related crimes.  Still, by 2009, many had voiced their support of McKinnon including Sting, Trudie Styler, Julie Christie, David Gilmour, Graham Nash, Peter Gabriel, The Proclaimers, Bob Geldof, Chrissie Hynde, David Cameron, Boris Johnson (Mayor of London), Stephen Fry, Jonathan Ross, Terry Waite, Tony Benn, Chris Huhne, Lord Carlile, the Conservative Party,

Alien baby corpse (Aleshenka) found in Russia in 1996 – disappears after being taken by scientists for “research”

I recently wrote (hesitantly) about Dr. Steven M. Greer’s claim of finding an 18-inch “being” that he claims to be alien in origin.  Given Dr. Greer’s “credibility” in the past, it will be interesting to see if the find bears merit, turns out to be a hoax, or is simply some sort of disfigured human fetus skeleton that our good doctor played up for publicity.  It got a bit more interesting today when we found that a nearly identical skeleton was discovered in Russia in 1996. This Russian corpse (aka the “Kyshtym Midget”) was reportedly found by an elderly woman in the southern Ural Mountain region of Kyshtym and measures about 20 inches (two inches longer than the South American specimen).  It was said to have been

Cats out of the bag – secret U.S. drone base discovered in remote Saudi Arabia desert via Bing Maps

Using Bing Maps, a remote airstrip deep in the desert of Saudi Arabia has been discovered and given the design elements present, is almost certainly a secret United States drone base.  The images show a trio of “clamshell”-style hangars, surrounded by fencing. Each is more than 150 feet long and approximately 75 feet wide; that’s sufficient to hold U.S. Predator and Reaper drones. The hangars are slightly larger, though similar in shape, to ones housing unmanned planes at Kandahar Air Field in Afghanistan.  According to Wired Magazine: "The image of the airfield, available in Bing Maps, would be almost impossible to discover randomly. At moderate resolutions, satellite images of the area show nothing but sand dunes. Only on close inspection does the base reveal itself. In

Another commercial airline passenger captures fast moving UFO zipping past the airplane – Massachusetts (2013)

The footage below was shot from a commercial airplane flying over Massachusetts in January 2013.  The camera has panned up from filming the Earth below to capture another jet airplane flying in the distance.  As the distant airplane is being videoed, a strange object zips across the screen, starting on the right and moving towards the left.  In the audio version of the film, a boy in the background appears to be startled and says, “Whoa, did you see that?”.   Fast moving UFO filmed from commercial airline (Massachusetts–2013)

The Kelly-Hopkinsville encounter (aka Hopkinsville Goblins Case or Kelly Green Men Case) – unsolved since 1955

  The Kelly–Hopkinsville encounter, also known as the Hopkinsville Goblins Case or the Kelly Green Men Case, was a series of UFO/alien sightings that took place in the fall of 1955, the most famous and well-publicized of which centered around a rural farmhouse at the time belonging to the Sutton family, which was located between the hamlet of Kelly and the small city of Hopkinsville, both in Christian County, Kentucky.  Members of two families at the Sutton farmhouse alleged to have seen unidentifiable creatures and other witnesses attested to lights and disc-shaped objects in the sky (some accompanied by odd sounds). The events that occurred are regarded as one of the most significant, well-known and well-documented cases in the history of UFO incidents, and a favorite

Sewer monster filmed using remote camera in old, Victorian sewer system

Ah, the many wonderful things you can see in the sewer – including sewer monsters!  Here’s a pretty cool video shot using a remote camera in an underground Victorian sewer system.  Note the quick “flash” as an unknown creature shoots past the camera in a connecting tunnel.  Very nice!  Mouse or monster?  We choose “monster” (yes, with no proof whatsoever) just because it gives us the willies…   Sewer monsters filmed with remote cameras

Mysterious loud booms are being reported across the United States leaving scientists puzzled

Increasingly, persons all over the United States have been reporting mysterious loud “booming” sounds, sometimes accompanied by a bright flash of light.  In some instances witnesses have reported seeing strange formations in the sky immediately preceding the boom.  Many have reported seeing “orange lights” while others have witnessed circular shaped objects (often with a "dot" in the center).  Mass reports of the rumbling boom sounds began in late 2012.  Meteorologists have investigated the mysterious sounds and have ruled out lightening since no storms were in the areas and the weather was not conducive to common thunder.  Furthermore, the United States Geological Service has ruled out earthquakes and ground tremors as the source of the sound. The loud booming sound often comes in a series of booms, one following

Fast moving UFOs caught on video shot in Albuquerque New Mexico

Many people were taking pictures of the sky Saturday night because of the recent storm but one viewer caught something different while trying to shoot the clouds.  This video was sent to an Albuquerque news station from viewer Cesar Garcia. He was recording the clouds near the corner of Blake and Unser streets in Albuquerque when he inadvertently captured a strange object flying by.  The object gets brighter towards the end and you can faintly see another one trailing it. This all happened around 6 p.m. Saturday. Garcia said he didn't even notice it until after he played back the video. And of course in the obligatory "save face" response, the newscasters mock the video towards the end… Early detractors suggested lens flare as the culprit but

The many historical JFK assassination films – analysis, notes, and review of the historical films

Given that the Zapruder JFK assassination film is shown so often, many people are unaware that there are more than one John F. Kennedy assassination films in existence.  In fact, there are several – Alyea, Bell, Bronson, Couch, Daniel, Dorman, Jeffries, Hughes, Martin, Muchmore, Nix, Pashcall, Towner, Wegman, and possibly more, shot film of the assassination or the events immediately preceding and following the killing of President John F. Kennedy.  Additional evidence can potentially be found in many of these films for those with keen eyes.  And if you find it odd that most of the assassination films have frames missing, typically at critical moments, then you are not alone. Another interesting aspect of these various JFK assassination films is the fact that in several instances,

Ghost Hunters capture excellent film of ghostly spirit in the Peoria Asylum in Indiana

The Peoria Asylum in Indiana has long been rumored to be haunted. Thousands of inmates made their way through the mental asylum and many died within its walls. In a recent 2013 episode of Ghost Hunters, the crew set up a full spectrum camera outside the asylum aimed towards the asylum cemetery where many of the inmates were buried. Owners of the asylum told Ghost Hunters that a cemetery worker haunted the grounds and could often be seen moving around, weeping for the lost inmates. In the video clip below, you can see the ghostly spirit moving along the tree line behind the cemetery. Ghost Hunters then put workers into the same area and noted the camera’s automatic movement detection function easily picked them up as

Incoming asteroid Feb 15 – NASA says they’ve never seen an object this big get so close to Earth

On February 15, 2013 an asteroid about half the size of a football field will pass by the Earth with only 17,200 miles to spare.  The asteroid, named 2012 DA14, will pass Earth closer than many man-made satellites.  Don Yeomans of NASA's Near Earth Object Program at JPL told reporters: “This is a record-setting close approach.  Since regular sky surveys began in the 1990s, we've never seen an object this big get so close to Earth." As it threads the gap “between low-Earth orbit, where the ISS and many Earth observation satellites are located, and the higher belt of geosynchronous satellites, which provide weather data and telecommunications”, NASA will use the opportunity to carefully study the flyby to glean data that could help them eliminate any future
