Joseph Montoya was a U.S. senator (NM) from 1964-1977. During the time of the alleged Roswell crash, Montoya was Lt. Governor of New Mexico. According to Montoya's assistants/drivers, Montoya was a witness of the Roswell wreckage and bodies at Roswell AFB.
According to Ruben and Peter Anaya, assistants and drivers for Montoya, Montaya sent word for the pair, as well as Moses Burrola and Ralph Chaes, to pick him up from the base as soon as possible. The brothers were given the instructions not to pick him up in front of the hanger he was at but rather to meet him in front of the water tower. When Montoya entered the vehicle he reportedly shouted at the brothers to hurry up and leave the scene.
The brothers assumed that Montoya wanted to be taken to the hotel in which he normally stayed but were shocked to learn that Montoya wanted to go to Ruben's home and wanted a strong drink. Montaya became upset and revealed that he had seen something at the base which completely disturbed him. Later on at the house, and while drinking straight from the bottle, Montoya claimed to have seen a 'flying machine' and 'little people' who weren't human. Montoya described the bodies as small and child-like with large, dark eyes. The creatures were dressed in silver, one-piece suits. According to Montoya at least one of the beings was alive. Later that night, Montoya would be taken to the hotel room, but not before making them swear they would never reveal anything he told them.
The next day the brothers arrived at the hotel room and Montoya advised them that the bodies were transported to Ft. Worth, TX. He again made them promise never to speak of what he had told them. Later on, the pair was harassed by George Wilcox, the Sheriff of Roswell who also advised them to keep their mouth shut or risk being murdered. If this wasn't enough, the brothers, as well as the other two men who had heard Montoya's stories, were approached by Senator Dennis Chavez who told them not to believe anything Montoya told them because he was a liar. Senator Chavez went on to state that Montoya saw something he wasn't supposed to see, a secret government project, and that for the security of the United States, nobody should ever speak of it.
Ruben Anaya passed away in 2002. Moses Burrola is deceased and the whereabouts of Ralph Chaes has not been established.
