After moving to the Roswell, New Mexico area, Frank Kimbler, a professional geologists, took an interest in the Roswell crash lore and began investigating the infamous crash debris field in search of clues to the 60-year-old mystery. It will come as no surprise to the readers that as a result, Kimbler has made several highly unusual discoveries including unusual artifacts and aerial photographic evidence of disturbed ground in and around the debris field.
For over 30 years, Frank Kimbler worked as a geologist and as an oceanographer for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Before moving to Roswell to take a teaching position at the New Mexico Military Institute, Kimbler didn’t have much interest in UFOs (even though he experienced an unusual sighting himself in his 20’s) but after landing in the mecca of UFO lore, that all changed. Shortly upon arrival, he took a keen interest in the story behind the Roswell UFO incident and began to put his professional skill to work in an effort to solve the 1947 mystery.
By 2011, Kimbler had discovered several unusual artifacts in the Roswell crash debris field. Being somewhat new at the game, and possibly a bit naïve, he sent specimen fragments via FedEx for further testing at Arizona State University’s School of Earth and Space Exploration in Tempe. A few days later, Dr. Lynda Williams, a research professor, emailed Kimbler:
“I just found your FedEx in our main office, opened it on the lab bench and found nothing in the plastic holder. Did you forget to put it in?”
Kimbler replied, insisting that the metal fragment was well-packaged and he was certain he did not forget to put it in the box.
“I can assure you it was in the small round box, directly on the top in plain sight in the box.”
Kimbler learned an important lesson that day. Today, he will not ship any samples through the postal systems and instead, has his trusted colleagues personally supervise the delivery of all artifacts found during their expeditions.
“This UFO evidence stuff is an interesting game to play. Seems to be a great deal like cat and mouse, cloak and dagger and chess all wrapped in one.”
Other pieces from the 2011 samples, which were described as shredded silvery pieces, some with edges that appeared burned, were later tested and proven to contain aluminum, silicon, manganese, copper alloy. When the pieces were put through isotopic analysis, it was found that the ratios were off. As Kimber puts it, “either the lab made an analytical error or the material is not from Earth.”
On a March 17, 2012 expedition into the area, Kimbler found an unusual metal artifact. The material appeared to be non-magnetic metallic, very light, and unbendable.
On April 13, 2014, Kimbler discovered brown black Bakelite plastic (an early form of plastic) covered with patches of aluminum magnesium silicon alloy. On that same day, he discovered a possible I-Beam fragment. Test results are pending.
Frank Kimbler continues to comb the Roswell crash debris field hoping to understand what crashed in the Roswell desert on July 2, 1947.
