On November 5, 1975 a group of loggers in the mountains of northeastern Arizona observed a strange, unusually bright light in the sky. One of those men, Travis Walton, recklessly left the safety of their truck to take a closer look at the large UFO it turned out to be. Suddenly, as he walked toward the it, Walton was blasted back by a bolt of mysterious energy.
His companions fled in fear. When they reported an encounter with a UFO - something they would have considered impossible if they had not witnessed it themselves - the men were suspected of murder. For five days authorities mounted a massive manhunt in search of Walton - or his body. Then Walton reappeared, disoriented and initially unable to tell the whole story of his terrifying encounter.
THE MEDIA REACTION
Although this case received an extraordinary amount of Press, UFO Fanatics, Investigators and so fourth, the true nature of what really happened of the night of November 5, 1975 still remains a mystery. Mike Rogers, and Allan Dallas who believed the glowing bright light in the forest was indeed a fire, or a crashed plane were both mistaken when the object became viewable floating above a clearing amongst some tree's. When David Whitlock was later asked about the shape of the UFO on the polygraph test he answered "No" to the UFO being Saucer shaped.

It goes without saying that the media during the events of this course played their part in successfully twisting everything the guy's said to be true. Soon the topic "Alien Abduction" "Missing" and "Allan Dallis" all added up to one thing - Murder. It was presumed Dallis's name was mentioned on the front of many Papers (Internationally included) because he had the biggest axe to grind with Travis, and above all the others was suspected of Homocide on a high scale.
