NOVEMBER 1966, OTOCEK, OBCINA BENEDIKT, SLOVENIA, DOCTORS ANDREJ ZOBOL, NIKOLA JULLIC, ZORAN FREDERIC AND OTHERS:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

One Ivan Kremer sent to the UFO Casebook website in 2005 pictures and a story that said that in November 1966 near a small village called Otocek of the former Yugoslavian Federation, now Slovenia, a flying object crashed and an extraterrestrial being was extracted.

The sender claimed that the event was soon covered up by pretending the crash was the result of an highly secret military test, and the partially burned body was said to be the one of a pilot of the Air Force that was deformed by flames and heat, and the darkness of the night helped the military authorities to pass this thesis as believable.

He claims the extraterrestrial being was immediately taken to Belgrade in an Army ambulance, and in the capital, it was assigned to a military hospital. In a few hours, some of the most important scientists of Yugoslavia started to examine the corpse.

Three of the scientists were doctors that led the autopsy: surgeon Andrej Zobol and the two pathologists Nikola Jullic and Zoran Frederic, all Government employees.

The sender claims that the pictures were passed secretly to him in 1999 by the nephew of one of the doctors, now living in Slovenia very close to the Italian border. He adds that in 1966, neither the USA nor the USSR knew of this event because though Yugoslavia was a Socialist Country, it was not aligned and it was neutral, far from the frictions of the Cold war.

The story is taken with cautious by the webmaster at "The UFO Casebook", while it was reproduced in many web forums and websites without further investigation. The alleged alien corpse looks entirely human.

Warning: the pictures shown below in this file are quite graphic and might shock sensitive people.

Narratives:

[Ref. uc1:] UFOCASEBOOK:

One Ivan Kremer sent to that website in 2005 pictures and a story that said that in November 1966 near a small village called Otocek of the former Yugoslavian Federation, a flying object crashed and an extraterrestrial being was extracted.

Mr Kremer claimed that the event was soon covered up by pretending the crash was the result of an highly secret military test, and the partially burned body was said to be the one of a pilot of the Air Force that was deformed by flames and heat, and the darkness of the night helped the military authorities to pass this thesis as believable.

It is claimed the extraterrestrial being was immediately taken to Belgrade in an Army ambulance, and in the capital, it was assigned to a military hospital. In a few hours, some of the most important scientists of Yugoslavia started to examine the corpse.

Three of the scientists were doctors that led the autopsy: surgeon Andrej Zobol and the two pathologists Nikola Jullic and Zoran Frederic, all Government employees.

Mr. Kremer says that in 1999 the pictures were passed secretly to him by the nephew of one of the doctors, now living in Slovenia very close to the Italian border. He adds that in 1966, neither the USA nor the USSR knew of this event because though Yugoslavia was a Socialist Country, it was not aligned and it was neutral, far from the frictions of the Cold war.

The webmaster at "The UFO Casebook" notes that he has not been able to verify nor debunk the story and that there is no other information available at this time. He notes that the story and photographs are posted here for public view in the interest of curiosity until at some time more info comes which will prove one way or the other.

[Ref. in1:] ON THE INTERNET:

Numerous websites have reproduced the information from The UFO Casebook. Some examples are given in the references.

Points to consider:

I was able to locate the email address of the person who sent the story, i.kremer@[----].yu, and his postal address in Beograd, Serbia. Mr. Kremer is often appearing on UFO and conspiracy discussion forums in Serbian language. No other information could be unearthed.

The body has nothing extraterrestrial about it and indeed seems to be a severely burnt human person. This would suggest that it might be true that it was a pilot who died in a crash: a hoaxer who would want people to believe it was an alien being could be expected to create a fake body with a non-human appearance. On the other end, it could be just any human corpse from any kind of severe accident, found and used in the context of a hoax - a very easy way to illustrate the hoax that spares the hoaxer the trouble of planting an autopsy scenery.

One comment on some Internet discussion forum suggested the body is from an ancient mummy. This is unlikely because the internal organs are there and, moreover, appear to be still wet. In the process of mummification, internal organs are removed.
