JULY 1939, ALANAMA, USA, MEN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A source of unknown credibility apparently told a quite dubious and fantastic story that allegedly took place somewhere "in rural Alabama", USA, in July 1939.

Allegedly, a retired FBI agent said that while investigating unusual reports concerning "a fortuneteller and military secrets", he was sent with other agents to the fortuneteller's home to investigate. When arriving they found a woman sitting on the front porch. The agents approached the bottom steps and identified themselves, and told her that they were going to ask her several questions.

The fortuneteller smiled and said yes but told them she was not a fortuneteller and that she could read their minds, as she had been "reading minds for a very long time".

When asked where she was from, she replied, "Another world." She was asked what she was doing on Earth and replied that she was guarding something that did not concern humans.

The agents decided to take her in for questioning but she told them she had not intentions of going with them. The head agent ordered one of the men to escort her to the car but as he was walking up the steps of the porch he suddenly began trembling and fell to the ground. The woman remained sitting and told the agents that if they made any further attempts none of them would leave from there alive. They agreed and the agent on the ground got up unhurt.

Before leaving, the agents asked for proof that she was indeed from another world. She agreed and told them to have their superiors pick an area of 100 square miles and to put markers around it, and to make sure no airplanes flew over the area. The agents left and reported the strange encounter to their superiors. They strangely agreed to do exactly what she told them to.

Later an internal excursion into the deserted area that was picked for the "proof" revealed that "it had been completely devoid of life, including birds, plants, etc." The agents were told to forget the whole thing and to never attempt to contact the strange woman again.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in rural Alabama in July 1939 in daytime, a retired FBI agent said that while investigating unusual reports concerning a fortuneteller and military secrets he was sent to the above location to investigate the facts. Upon arriving at the residence the agents found a woman sitting on the front porch. The agents approached the bottom steps and identified themselves. They told her that they were going to ask her several questions. She smiled and said yes but told them she was not a fortuneteller and she could read their minds. She said she had been "reading minds" for a very long time. When asked where she was from, she replied, "Another world." She was asked what she was doing on Earth and replied that she was guarding something that did not concerned humans. The agents decided to take her in for questioning but she told them she had not intentions of going with them. The head agent ordered one of the men to escort her to the car but as he was walking up the steps of the porch he suddenly began trembling and fell to the ground. She remained sitting and told the agents that if they made any further attempts none of them would leave from there alive. They agreed and the agent on the ground got up unhurt. Before leaving, the agents asked for proof that she was indeed from another world, she agreed and told them to have their superiors pick an area of 100 square miles and to put markers around it, and to make sure no airplanes flew over the area. The agents left and reported the strange encounter to their superiors. They strangely agreed to do exactly what she told them to. Later an internal excursion into the deserted area that was picked for the "proof" revealed that it had been completely devoid of life, including birds, plants, etc. The agents were told to forget the whole thing and to never attempt to contact the strange woman again.

Points to consider:

There is really nothing in this story that would make me think it is truthful.
