Follow Up: Puerto Rico's Mysterious Triangular UFO Incident

UFO Over Puerto Rico
The Journal of Hispanic Ufology

Project Argus- Puerto Rican Experimental Research Group, Inc.

     The Puerto Rican Experimental Research Group, Inc. has continued its investigations into this case, which has resulted in a variety of contrasting opinions within the Puerto Rican UFO community and abroad. As a group committed to its research, we want to be very cautions with what we turn over to the media without having first verified the sources and the persons we have interviewed. We ascertain that the data is analyzed and evaluated in a responsible matter. Unscrupulous individuals having no connection to this investigation have taken it upon themselves to become agents of disinformation in the media. Since they have not had the [entire] case in their possession, we have delayed greatly in publishing it since it came into our hands in May 2005, in order to carry out proper field research. Certain details have emerged suggesting the [involvement of] many individuals and researchers unconnected to this case. As soon as [PRRG Director] advised me of the case a month later (giving the reader an idea of the manner in which the case was kept under wraps), he told me not to issue any reports pending his go-ahead, and I agreed to do this until the time he told me that his telephone had been tapped by an unknown agency, something that the original witness was also experiencing. Immediately, Mr. Durand gave me the green light to report the all available information before it was too late and the only evidence in our possession eliminated or seized.

     The case number of the [unauthorized wiretap] is ASO2, as received by Mr. Alturo of the Puerto Rico Telephone Company. He gave Mr. Durand a number to report this wiretap (1-888-241-0734) and the confirmation number for the complaint was 002. Five days later, Mr. Durand received a call of unknown provenance, as his Caller ID box was unable to register that the phone was blocked. The agency tapping the phone was never identified. There is a person in the media inserting words ("An Independence Day type craft") where they were not present in the original report. Thus it can be seen how disinformation arises.

The Second Interview

     Eyewitness's Brother: My brother was on the "Milla de Oro" about to take the expressway to San Juan. He was driving with three other guys as passengers. Beside him [on the road] was a green Mitsubishi and behind him was a red care. All of the cars around him stopped. All of them! The cars stopped, the drivers got out of their vehicles to look [at the object]. He wanted to get closer to the object to see it better and tried to follow it, matching its speed. The object then increased speed until the car was trying to follow it at 95 MPH. The object eventually vanished at high speed.
Willie Durand: What was the object like?

Eyewitness's Brother: It was a brilliant object, very luminous and triangle-shaped.

Willie: Do you know if your brother felt some warmth on his skin?

Eyewitness's Brother: No, only noise, like the buzzing of bees..ZZZZZ...could be heard.

Willie: The object then followed a course toward the airport?

Eyewitness's Brother: Yes, it took the "Milla de Oro" as if toward San Juan, and the airport is very close to San Juan. Wilfredo was there, who managed to see it much more closely. Especially if you're in the airport, you can see it better, as its a clear zone that allows for better visibility.

[Omitted: information has been suppressed in this part of the interview]

Eyewitness's Brother: There are more witnesses who work as security guards. They saw the object much nearer. The security guards from this other location say that the object flew over them. [Omitted: information has been suppressed in this part of the interview]

Willie: There's a magnetic field in that area [Omitted]. There's considerable geomagnetic activity at that location.

Eyewitness's Brother: Oh, really? How do you know that, Willie?

Willie: Yes, we have all of the equipment and had already made measurements in that particular area. We conducted tests and its quite large, covering all the way to the Hiram Bithorn stadium. [The area] is rich in sightings of this type.

Eyewitness's Brother: Look, right now I'm in Orocovis at a place where all of the local residents tell me that they've seen military aircraft that fly to a certain point of a river. I've been to that river, and they fly circles over the area as though looking for something. After a while they go away, then two more return and continue circling before leaving.

Willie: How's your brother doing? What are his impressions after this sighting?

Eyewitness's Brother: Well, he tells me that a friend of his who works in a carpentry shop keeps saying: "Hell, you really saw that?" But he says that "he's rather frightened by the whole thing".

Willie: Your brother hasn't brought up his experiences again?

Eyewitness's Brother: Well yes, he's spoken with some of his friends and with me, as well as some fellows my brother was with when they saw the triangular craft and have discussed the subject at length at work.

Willie: Wilfredo tells me that the object is larger than two ball parks. What can you tell me about what your brother saw that morning?

Eyewitness's Brother: Well yes, it was very large, my brother says. A tremendous object.

Willie: You told me that there was a girl who'd also seen this triangular object. I can't recall if it was you or Wilfredo who told me.

Eyewitness's Brother: Yes, I told you. She works in Campo Rico as a manager for a food store, but she's completely adamant about not talking. She doesn't want to come out on TV or the radio. She's completely negative about discussing the subject. I'll give you her number and see if maybe you get the information or an interview out of her.

Willie: All we want is the information. We won't use her name or personal data.

Eyewitness's Brother: Besides, she saw the triangular object from Paseo de la Princesa (Ed. - a promenade in old San Juan, some 7 miles from the airport).

Wille: Thanks for the information you've given me. This sheds a bit more light on this strange situation. We're hoping that more eyewitnesses come forward. I hope to see you soon. We'll be holding a meeting and you're invited.

Noteworthy Elements Observed: Parameters for Research

1. Two days prior to the sighting, the eyewitness had a conversation with a female co-worker who confided to him that she had been abducted several times by these vehicles.
2. Analyze the encounter and how the conversation came about.
3. Two days following the conversation, the sighting occurs.
4. Research into the surroundings of this witness's case is pending.
5. 14 days later, he was hospitalized in intensive care for a strange illness.
6. His car was later stolen from his house; the vehicle's paint had radioactive evidence.
7. He purchased another car and had an accident at the same place that the sighting occurred, breaking both legs.
8. Telephone lines belonging to Willie Durand, members of the group, and eyewitnesses, are tapped.
9. Willie Duarnd is expecting phone calls to see how many witnesses actually saw this craft.
10. Hold in-depth conversations with airport staff.
11. Agents with the Tactical Squad of the Puerto Rican Police report to Willie Durand's home in Floral Park (San Juan, P.R.) asking to see him. He identified himself, asking what they wanted, what were the charges, etc. The agent courteously tells him that nothing is amiss, but inquires as to the ownership of the vehicle parked outside, mentioning the evening that Willie visited the place where Wilfredo's UFO sighting took place.

     Willie Durand writes the following: "These events have been repetitive and I am trying to tie up the loose ends. I am researcher in the best possible meaning of the word, being of sound mind and with a sense of responsibility when it comes to writing and describing the arc of these events. A map of the trajectory of this artifact through the skies of the Puerto Rican capital is being prepared. Expect it to be released soon. This interesting case remains open and there is further research to be done and more interviews to be conducted.
