They were hauling a big creature’: New footage reveals what Deputy Sheriff said he saw at Roswell, in UFO mystery that has baffled experts and conspiracy theorists for 70 years
- Deputy Sheriff Charles Fogus said he saw a flying saucer at New Mexico crash site
- Case has confounded experts since 1947, when US military said a surveillance balloon crashed
- In the never-before released interview, Fogus said he saw aliens who ‘looked like the ones we see on television’
A deputy sheriff said he saw he saw a crashed flying saucer and aliens who ‘looked like the ones we see on television’ at Roswell, a newly-released interview reveals.
Deputy Sheriff Charles Fogus rushed to the scene of a crashed aircraft in New Mexico in an incident that still baffles experts and conspiracy theorists after 70 years.
A new book claims Fogus said the UFO was around 100ft wide, and he said he saw soldiers removing dead ‘creatures’ from the scene.

The deputy told Deanna Short, a private investigator from LA, there were between 300 and 400 soldiers on the scene when he arrived with Sheriff Jess Slaughter in July 1947.
In transcripts from a 1999 interview seen by The Mirror, and used in new book UFOs TODAY – 70 Years of Lies, Misinformation and Government Cover-Up, he said: ‘They were hauling a big, a creature.
‘The bodies must have been 5 feet tall. I saw the legs and feet on some of them. They looked like our feet.
‘The skin was a brownish color…. Like they were in the sun too long.’
Reports of a ‘flying saucer’ crash circulated at the time, prompting conspiracy theorists to believe aliens had landed
The incident continues to be popular with UFO enthusiasts seven decades after it happened

Asked if he had seen their heads, he said: ‘Yeh….they were covered. They eyes looked like the ones we see on television and the pictures of them.’
And reflecting on what he had seen, Fogus said: ‘The Great Father didn’t just make this planet…. He made all of them.
‘He put beings on these planets just like he put us on this one. They’re smarter then we are.’
The book has been published by Philip Mantle, who is a former director of investigations for the British UFO Research Association.
He told The Mirror: ‘It is rare that anyone new adds anything to the Roswell event from an eye witness point of view.
‘If you treat the Roswell UFO crash as a ‘cold case’ investigation then new testimony like this can be invaluable.’
The US Military has consistently denied that Roswell was the site of an alien landing, releasing reports confirming that the object which crashed was a surveillance balloon.
COULD BLURRY LETTER HELP TO SOLVE ROSWELL MYSTERY?
Conspiracy theorists claim a blurry letter seen in a picture could be the key to solving the Roswell UFO mystery.
The photo shows Air Force General Roger Ramey crouching over debris which was claimed to be from the Roswell Crash.
He appears to be holding a memo, which UFO researchers believe could be key in finally unlocking what happened in the New Mexico desert 70 years ago.

David Rudiak, a UFO researcher, has used modern technology to zoom on the letter
David Rudiak, a UFO researcher, has used modern technology to zoom on the letter.
Alejandro Rojas, a presenter for Open Minds Radio, told Express Online: ‘He [David] says it is clear that there is a reference to a disc and believes he can also make out a portion of a sentence that reads “and the victims of the wreck”.
‘Rudiak says this proves that a disc-shaped craft was recovered.
‘However, perhaps more startling, he says it also corroborates the claims that extraterrestrial bodies were recovered from that wreck.’
The 1947 Roswell incident is one of the most controversial UFO episodes in history.
Today Roswell is a magnet for tourists and UFO theorists, all looking for their own clues
A weather balloon,used to monitor nuclear tests, allegedly crashed in the New Mexico desert.
However in a stunning development the military announced the next day that a crashed flying saucer had instead been found.
The statement was later retracted, but not before it helped fuel one of the biggest UFO conspiracy theories ever.
Researchers claim that the military covered up the UFO crash with the later story about the weather balloon.
