The phenomenon of Human Mutilation is perhaps the scariest aspect of the UFO phenomenon. In cases of Human Mutilation, deceased human beings are discovered mutilated in a manner similar or even identical to cases of reported Cattle Mutilation.
The first documented account of Human Mutilation occurred in March, 1956 in White Sands, NM. In that initial case, Sgt. Johnathon P. Lovette and one Major Cunningham were exploring sand dunes outside the missile test range in hopes of finding missile debris. According to Cunningham, Lovette strayed over a dune and out of site for a time. Cunningham claims he was alerted by Lovette screaming for help. Racing to Lovette's location, Cunningham claimed he was greeted by the horrifying site of a Lovette being dragged by cables or metallic 'tentacles' into a hovering silver disk-shaped UFO or flying saucer which then took off at high speeds.
Cunningham reported his experience to authorities and three days later the nude and mutilated body of Lovette was discovered miles away from the last location Cunningham claims to have seen Lovette. Lovette had been mutilated in a manner that we know now to be consistent with reported cases of Cattle Mutilation. Lovette's eyes, tongue, and genitalia had been removed and his anus had been apparently cored out. There is no word on whether or not Lovette's clothing had been recovered. Cunningham was initially charged with Lovette's murder but the charges were later dropped.
The subject of Human Mutilation is controversial and many people feel that cases of such are routinely covered-up by local law enforcement and even government agencies. Case in point, the death of Todd Sees.
On August 2, 2002, Todd Sees disappeared after a morning of 4-wheeling. Sees had told his wife that the would return around noon. When he failed to show, his wife knew something was wrong. A search party was organized and Sees 4-wheeler was found, however there was no sign of Sees.
For 2 days an intense search of the area by police, paramedics, search dogs, and 200 volunteers was carried out with no sign of Sees. Then late on August 4, 2002, something white was spotted in the brush near a pond, a location the search party and dogs had passed before. That something turned out to be the body of Todd Sees.
Sees was found dressed only in his underwear. A boot of Sees was discovered in a top of a tree located about a mile from the spot where the 4-wheeler was discovered. No word on whether or not any clothing was recovered.
It has been reported that within a half-hour of the discovery of the body, the FBI took over the investigation.
As per the condition of the body, the body itself did not show any classic sign of mutilations save for an unexplained burn on the temple. What is amazing is that the body was claimed to have been emaciated and white, with the hands found in a position as if shielding the face from something, and with a reported look of fright or horror on the face itself. Probably the most unusual aspect of the body, besides the burn, is the lack of bloating of the body. Sees' body had been in the August heat for almost three days yet the body was found in a remarkable condition. Stranger still were the reports of nearby residents who claimed to have seen a UFO shooting down a beam of light and seemingly pick something up near the location of the incident.
Is the Todd Sees case an example of the phenomenon of Human Mutilation? It's hard to tell. Authorities have not been forthcoming with details on the case. In fact, everybody associated with the case appears to be tight-lipped. Officially, the cause of death is listed as being from cocaine use, however that explanation doesn't quite fit the facts. For me at least, the answer is quite simple. There's foul play involved, Either Sees was a victim of a currently unexplained phenomenon or else he was the victim of a human assailant.
A similar case to that of Todd Sees happened in the U.K. in 1980. Zygmunt Jan Adamski disappeared from Todmorden on June 6, 1980, after leaving to go shopping for food. Adamski never returned home. On June 11, 1980, Adamski's body was located on the top of a 12ft high coal pile. There were no footprints found in the coal, as would be the case had someone placed his body there or had Adamski himself climbed the coal pile.
As to the condition of Adamski's body, strange burns were found on the back of Adamski's head, neck, and shoulders. A strange green ointment had been applied to the wounds. The mysterious ointment has never been identified. Adamaski's undershirt, wallet, and watch were missing. His suit coat or vest was buttoned incorrectly. This last piece of information may imply that Adamski was dressed after death. The official cause of Adamski's death was listed as heart failure, possibly from fright or shock.
As to the connection between UFOs and Adamski's death, UFO sightings were common in the area at that time and one of the officers investigating the Adamski's death, Alan Godfrey, claimed to have witnessed a UFO hovering over a road and to have been subsequently abducted by aliens.
So are UFOs/Aliens responsible for these mysterious deaths? As for now, the subject of Human Mutilations remain a controversial and elusive mystery.
In the clips below, Veteran Homicide Detective Butch Witkowski, with 27 years of experience, has taken an interest in the death of Todd Sees and similar cases which might indicated the work of a currently unexplained phenomenon.
