Nick RedfernNick Redfern, “Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind”
The field of UFOs is full of unsettling examples of suspicious deaths. Accounts of accidents that might not have been accidents after all, abound. Researchers and witnesses have vanished, never to be seen again. Conveniently timed heart attacks are reported. Out-of-the-blue suicides that, upon investigation, bear the distinct hallmarks of murder, are all too common. British UFO Investigator Nick Redfern will speak about “Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind,” including the UFO-related deaths of the first U.S. Secretary of Defense, James Forrestal and of JFK; the mysterious disappearances of military pilots and their connection to UFOs; the links between national security and the sudden deaths of UFO investigators; and the issue of strange deaths and the Men in Black.
