The story of a missing woman has featured on The Oprah Winfrey a Show, 48 Hours, Unsolved Mysteries, A Current Affair and also America’s Most Wanted as it is believed she was kidnapped when she was reported missing on 20th September, 1988. She was near here home in Belen, New Mexico when the disappearance occurred.

The 19 year old followed her customary routine of a bike ride, where she told her mother to come and fetch her if she was not back by noon, her mother Patty Doel contacted the police when she could not find her. Her bike has never been found, and the only evidence of her in the area was her tape and some pieces of her walkman. A Ford pick-up might  have been part of the incident, it was seen by witnesses but this has never been located either.

A photograph then surfaced in 1989, it was of a young girl and boy. The girl was Tara Calico according to her mother and Scotland Yard but the Las Alamos National Laboratory did not agree and the FBI said it was inconclusive.

Twenty years after her disappearance the Valencia County Sheriff said he knew what had happened. Rene Riviera said that boys who had known her from school had driven up behind her and an accident had occured. When Calico died they covered up the crime, and Riviera even went so far as to say that he knew who they were but with no body or evidence he could not do anything more. Her father said the statement should not have been made, no one has been named and it sounds like conjecture without any facts to back it up. So far the mystery and case remain unsolved.

The author of the video does correct his mistake for the year she disappeared.

July 1947, for alien conspiracy claims this is the cracker!

A rancher found metal debris on the ground outside his place in Roswell, New Mexico. America was gripped in ‘flying saucer fever’, the claims were rapidly dismissed by officials as debris from a weather balloon in an accident.

But the alien craft and bodies had supposedly already been taken away, witnesses spoke of holes in the desert grounds, of covert ops to bring the ship down to ground and then in 1995 the mysterious Roswell autopsy video surfaced. The video shows the supposed ‘grey’ alien being autopsied. There are enough video’s around about the debunk vs authenticity that you can probably google a fair whack in a night.

Despite the US Air Force still stating that it was a weather balloon the rumours carry on to this day.

In 2006 the video was finally proven to be a hoax, the video was made by Ray Sentilli who was a London-based video maker. He admitted that it was a reconstruction of a video that he claimed originally existed however that was lost, he stated that there were a few of the original films in survival however they don’t seem to have been brought forwards for checking.

If you are looking for a comedic look at this with some terribly English humour, then Alien Autopsy is a good light relief film.

A fictionalized version of the creation of the footage and its release was retold in the comedy film Alien Autopsy (2006).
