Roswell UFO researcher claims to have picture of aliens

Roswell researcher and author Tom Carey told the crowd at American University yesterday that he has the “smoking gun” to prove once and for all aliens are real. According to an article by WTOP in Washington, Carey claims to have a picture of an alien, but did not have the picture with him.

Carey has been researching the alleged crash a flying saucer in Roswell, NM since 1991. He is a co-author and researcher of a couple of books on the topic with his research partner Don Schmitt.

He told the crowd that the images are on Kodachrome color slides and that their research on the legitimacy of the slides has been promising.

Carey says: “What’s interesting is, the film is dated 1947. We took it to the official historian of Kodak up in Rochester, New York, and he did his due diligence on it, and he said yes, this filmstrip, the slides are from 1947. It’s 1947 stock. And from the emulsions on the image, it’s not something that’s been Photoshopped like today. It’s original 1947 images, and it shows an alien who’s been partially dissected lying in a case.”

He also described what the slides show: “3 and a half to 4 feet tall, the head is almost insect-like. The head has been severed, and there’s been a partial autopsy; the innards have been removed, and we believe the cadaver has been embalmed, at least at the time this picture was taken.”

He says he received the slides from a couple in Texas. “The woman was a high-powered Midland, Texas, lawyer with a pilot’s license. We think she was involved in intelligence in World War II, and her husband was a field geologist for an oil company,” claims Carey.

The UFO community has been excited about the American University presentation, which was largely made up of very credible researchers. The event was a panel discussion called UFOs: Encounters by Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials. And American University described as including ” four prominent national figures,” and is based on the Honors Colloquium, Alien Contact: Science and Science Fiction, by professor and filmmaker John Weiskopf.

The panel also included investigative journalist and author Leslie Kean. The title of the event was taken from her New York Times best-selling book UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record. Another panelist was Dr. Richard Haines, the co-founder of the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP), and is a former NASA researcher.

However, the WTOP article says the “The most riveting presentation of the night came from retired U.S. Air Force Colonel Charles Halt, one of the witnesses of a famous series of UFO sightings in England in 1980 known as the Rendlesham Forest incident.”

Apparently, WTOP did not think much of Carey’s claims, but it is hard to fault them since claims are all they were. It is difficult to get too excited when a UFO researcher says he has the “smoking gun,” but he can’t show it to you yet. I think the public often characterizes UFO research as a lot of spectacular claims, without spectacular evidence.

Leslie Kean was quick to distance herself from the alien pictures. On Facebook she wrote: “I had nothing to do with the Roswell part. Just want to make that clear.”

An alleged student that who was part of the honors course also commented on her Facebook explain why they added Carey to the panel. Brian Shin wrote: “I’m a student in the honors course. The Roswell section was deemed as a necessary balance in order to show different faces of the ufo investigation. While some could say that it could damage the integrity of what others are trying to accomplish, having Tom Carey acted as a immediate juxtaposition for those new to serious investigations into ufos. The judgments were left for the audience to make rather than the panel, by trying to make different parts of ufo investigation come together.”

Carey and Schmitt’s books are full of very interesting and credible testimony. Perhaps Carey would have been more convincing had he shared that information, which is not well known to the general public. Although many in the UFO community do believe Carey to be a credible researcher, the general public does not know him from the charlatans they hear about in the news.

Now the pressure is on for Carey to produce this amazing evidence. He says the images will be revealed early next year.

  1. Hello, Tom,

    If you can show this picture, it will be, possibly, a big step forward in ufology. But I bet that a lot of people are going to prevent that to happen. So, I urge you to be extremely cautious. I also hope that it is not a new deception, like many others before. Remember the “alien autopsy”!

    to you

  2. Hey Tom
    You are not adding credibility to a subject that most people believe is not credible. If you have the pictures you should have brought them. If you don’t them you are just another charlatan. OH, I get it. It’s more important to sell books and promote your own self-interest that help the community gain some credibility that might force the government to finally disclose its deception. Your own personal credibility is quickly heading down hill. Congrats for nothing 🙁

  3. This guy ranks near the top of the ALL TIME BIGGEST A$$HOLES if he really has those photos and hasn’t released them to the public.

    The fact that he is claiming to have the world, but is not revealing it, sets off my BS meter.

    This guy deserves a smack.

  4. George Knapp on coasttocoastam just said that the photo is out there on the internet if you know where to look. I can’t find it.

  5. You either have the slides, or you don’t.

    if the veracity of the purported photographic slides has been properly established, then it is the responsibility of this person to bring them to the public, without seeking monetary recompense.

    to do anything less, or to try to use such evidence for monetary gain is…


    hard, verifiable (read, NOT eyewitness testimony) evidence of non earth based intelligences visiting this planet would be one of the biggest things in the recorded history of our civilization; using it for personal gain would be the act of a scoundrel and a knave.

  6. I’m going to guess the alleged photos never see the light of day. Sounds like PT Barnum to me. If you have them, release them, it’s that simple…if it’s actually about the research.


  8. > I think the public often characterizes UFO research as a lot of spectacular claims, without spectacular evidence.

    Why “characterizes”? You described UFO research accurately as “a lot of spectacular claims, without spectacular evidence.”

    If you don’t agree with me, I think we can all agree that after 67 years without proof, UFO researchers should be more cautious than to use the phrase “smoking gun,” especially when “characterising” unpublished evidence.

    > Leslie Kean was quick to distance herself from the alien pictures

    Ms. Kean seems to agree with me!

    > while many in the UFO community do believe Carey to be a credible researcher, the general public does not know him from the charlatans…

    Such as his research partner Don Schmitt!

  9. Haven’t heard of this Tom Carey before till now. He shouldn’t have even mentioned anything to the public about this photo if we’re not going to get to see it for ourselves. It only makes him even more questionable as a source… why does it have to be so hard to get straight up honest info on a subject widely investigated?? Ugh… Oh I know, $$$

  10. BS. The fact that he associates himself with used car salesman Schmidt is all I needed.

    It was a balloon yo.

  11. $$$ that’s all this little pr stunt is about. If he had anything & was a decent human being, he wouldn’t go shouting it from the rooftops until he actually had it in his hands to back it up. I get the same crap in the mail every week. Ooohh look I got a shiny KEY glued to a piece of paper from the car dealership, it says it MIGHT just be the ONE that fits my brand new free car! All I have to do is go down there so they can run my credit to determine what garbage car they can sell me. What a douche, try making money the honest way for a change.

  12. We all know ETs exist, statistically, all the photos, videos, testimonies, even nasa let video from apollo missions slip thru that clearly show discs flying below the command module. Structures are airbrushed out on the moon. We are not children, utube has so much, lets move past are they real and lets discuss their intent and their role in our evolution.

  13. I grew up in Roswell. It was a hotbed of UFO activity in the 60s and early 70s.

    I live in Utah now and have seen numerous UFOs with witnesses. July 2009 – Night…Six (6) UFOs entered the atmosphere above us causing a star-like flash and immediately went into a perfect circular pattern. They held there for several seconds then two went south, two went north, and the other two went east and west respectively. All were gone for about 5 minutes then reappeared in exactly the same place above us. They were stationary for several seconds then ‘stacked’ and went through the atmosphere with a flash. That was very neat to observe.

    Also, had information from my military days that verified the existence of UFOs.

  14. first of all this is great my daughter had a project and she got an a and all she used was this site and some school books this is a great website!!!!!!!!

  15. Since you all are looking for the definitive smoking gun and sometimes you have it but do not accept it out of fear on ridicule then I am going to disclose something you will not be able to dispute at all which is my condition as extraterrestrial. It so happens that I am God whether you like it or not and I am two in one, yes I am a man and can have children in my own. I have one inside me at the moment and have the tests that reveal it with me which I can show you if you so desire. Now I created the grays as my favorite race and I was the one that designed and built those flying souccers and yes I am definitively from earth but I was born here in Medellin Colombia in may 1957. I came to avert imminence of nuclear war on the 60’s. The matter of our existence can be clear by talking directly to us. I am a us citizen since 1993 and currently live in Cape Coral Florida 33993 and my phone cells are 954 995 5238 as well as 239 728 4205
    my emai is or If you contact me and are serious about all this I can provide you wit proof and evidence of the cover up the USA government is delivering to the world.
