Miriam Bush was an Executive Secretary, working under Hospital Administrator and Chief Medical Officer, Lt. Col. Harold Warne, at the Roswell AFB Hospital in 1947. Bush was employed at the base during the time of the alleged crash of an extraterrestrial craft near Roswell, NM, in July of the same year.
According to Pat Bush, Miriam's sister-in-law, Miriam came home from work one day extremely excited about something that had occurred. Relating the events over diner, Bush claimed that her Boss took her aside and told her there was something she needed to see. Bush claimed she was taken to a room in which bodies of what she thought were children were displayed on tables. When Bush noticed the heads of the beings, she realized they were not children at all. Bush noticed that at least one of the beings was alive at the time, as it moved it's hand.
According to Pat Bush, when Miriam arrived home from work the next day her demeanor had completely changed. Bush appeared frightened and informed the family never to discuss what she told them the day before.
Effect Of The Sighting On Her Life: The sightings negatively effected Miriam Bush, possibly being a factor for her turning to alcohol and her eventual death. According to Pat Bush, Miriam was never the same. She lived the rest of her life in a state of fear.
Death: According to Pat Bush, Miriam Bush's death was mysterious. In 1989, Bush had checked in to a hotel under an assumed name (her sister's name) and was subsequently found deceased with bruises on her arms and with a plastic bag over her head. The door had been locked from the inside. According to Pat Bush there was no investigation and the Police simply ruled it a suicide, though her family had their doubts.
Possible Connection To Roswell Mortician Glenn Dennis: Glenn Dennis claims he had spoken with an employee at the Base Hospital who had witnessed the bodies, drawing him a picture on a napkin of what she had witnessed. This unknown woman then burned the napkin in an ashtray right after Dennis saw it. Some people believe this unknown woman to have been Miriam Bush. Dennis gave the false name of 'Naomi Self' to the woman, a regretful error since many Roswell investigators and skeptics were led to believe Dennis was either lying or making the story up as there was never any record of a 'Naomi Self' at the base during the time-frame. Confusing matters further, Dennis claims 'Naomi Self' was shipped off and was later said to have died in a crash. It's likely that this further comment is also incorrect as well, probably being an addition to the fake name in order to protect the true identity of the woman who revealed the information. Finally, in the latter years when Dennis was still giving interviews, he admitted that the name 'Naomi Self' was false and that he was in fact protecting her true identity. Today, Glenn Dennis is in frail health and no longer gives interviews concerning his experiences regarding the crash at Roswell.
Observation Concerning 'Naomi Self': Dennis gave the middle name of 'Maria' to the woman who informed him of her seeing the bodies. The name 'Maria' is a derivative of the name Miriam and may be an example of Dennis giving an unconscious slip-up, hinting at the true identity of the woman.
