BEGINNING AND MID APRIL, 1959, KANKAKEE, ILLINOIS, USA, DAVID SOUCIE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Kankakee, Illinois, on early April 1959, at 08:30 p.m., David Soucie saw a white glowing disc land and a large ape-like creature appear in front of it and proceed to his direction. He hid and watched it pass him.

Albert Rosales indicates that in Kankakee again, in mid April 1959, a week after the previous incident, at 08:30 p.m., Carl Miller and David Soucie, watching from a railroad bridge, both saw a white glowing disc hovering over the tracks. A huge black-silhouetted form was seen moving in front of the light. It was ape-like, with very long arms and no neck and moved like an ape, using its arms.

When it got within 100 yards of him, Miller ran away.

The cases are indicated to come from Donald Keyhoe of the NICAP and from the HUMCAT catalogue by David Webb and Ted Bloecher.
