Presented by James Clarkson, the UFO Detective
James E. Clarkson looks back over 30 years of UFO Investigations from the Pacific Northwest. What happens when an experienced criminal investigator interviews abductees, police officers and pilots who've encountered UFOs? From a crashed UFO that became a local legend and a witness who managed an office for Wright-Patterson scientists involved in the cover-up, to many other notable northwest UFO encounters, this presentation covers it all. These are the best cases from the UFO Detective's career, where Truth is Stranger than Fiction. From selected UFO cases, the key witnesses have been recontacted, years after the fact, to ask how their experiences have changed their perspectives. Their candid comments are startling and insightful.Particularly in light of the fact that UFOs are in mainstream news now - James Clarkson brings his perspective, along with those of the witnesses he's worked with, to what appears to be the disclosure of UFO reality by our own government. Join us to better understand the latest UFO headlines of 2020. About the Speaker:James Clarkson is an Investigator who has stood in two worlds for many years - a career professional investigator in the criminal justice field and a lifelong researcher of the UFO Mystery. He has been a plainclothes military police investigator, a 20-year career city police officer and fraud investigator who has had many titles: patrol supervisor, detective sergeant, fatal accident team manager and training officer. After retiring with 20 years' service, he became a child abuse detective and then he completed another decade of service as a fraud investigator for a Washington state agency. Meanwhile, for over 30 years he has studied the mystery of UFOs with the same skills he applied to criminal investigations. In 1986, he joined the Mutual UFO Network. Applying the same passion for solving mysteries to the world of High Strangeness, James Clarkson has served as the Washington State Director of MUFON and the Special Assignments Team for MUFON. He has lectured at many UFO events across the country and in Paris as well as appearances on radio and TV. He is the author of TELL MY STORY- June Crain, the Air Force & UFOs, as well as the Westport UFO Crash Retrieval Event.
