Legendary UFO Expert, U.S. Air Force Lt. Colonel Wendelle Stevens Dies at 87
Retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Col was lead investigator in Billy Meier UFO contact case, helped prove still ongoing contacts with human extraterrestrials are real
(PRWEB) September 21, 2010 -- Lt. Col. Wendelle Stevens, USAF (Ret.), the lead investigator in the still ongoing Billy Meier UFO contacts in Switzerland, died on September 7, in Tucson, Arizona. Stevens, who began researching UFOs for the Air Force in 1947, played a major role in bringing the Meier UFO contacts to public attention. Having learned of Meier's contacts and seen some of his early UFO photos in 1977, Stevens organized a team that included private investigators Lee and Brit Elders of Intercept, and photographic expert Jim Diletosso and Tom Welch. Their findings were augmented and attested to by numerous scientific experts when independent author Gary Kinder (Light Years) also investigated the case.
Stevens first received Meier's transcripts of his German language conversations with the Plejaren extraterrestrials, in 1978, and began having them translated into English. By publishing the information in dated, copyrighted books Stevens effectively, and probably unknowingly, established the prophetically accurate nature of much of the scientific information provided to Meier by the extraterrestrials. This included Meier's advance knowledge of Jupiter's rings, Io being the most volcanically active body in the solar system, the actual number of Saturn's moons, the two planets beyond Pluto, the discoveries of water, small life forms and the hostile environment on Mars, etc., all well before "official discovery".
Stevens investigation into the Meier case was, from the beginning, closely monitored by various intelligence agencies, some of whom regularly detained him and his team on their way to and from Meier's residence in Switzerland. But chief among those who followed Stevens and his team's every step was the CIA, whose station chief in London at the time, Mark Nathan, personally interrogated everyone, according to what Stevens publicly told audiences.
According to Michael Horn, Meier's U.S. media representative, "Part of their purpose was to make copies of all photographs and information that the investigators were getting from Meier. Stevens not only faced harassment from the authorities," said Horn, "but enormous opposition from various UFO organizations who were plainly envious of the stunning evidence Wendelle acquired from Meier. They were especially peeved that he chose to bring in top scientific experts to analyze it and not the unqualified UFO enthusiasts."
In addition to being the preeminent UFO investigator of all time, Stevens was well known as a great storyteller, famous for recounting the details of his decades long investigation into Meier's contacts. Horn says that without Stevens' courageous, pioneering work, the still ongoing efforts to discredit and suppress the Meier case would have probably succeeded completely.
