If you have ever seen the movie 'Fire in the Sky' then you are possibly familiar with the Travis Walton story for which the movie was based. It covers one of the most interesting cases of alien abduction ever alleged and corroborated by more than just the actual victim. On the most recent airing of the SyFy show 'Paranormal Witness' all the men involved with the story, were all seen and heard describing their personal experience of what happened on that fateful night on November 5th 1975 in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in Arizona.
The story describes the events that led up to one of the most believable and heavily investigated cases of alien abduction to have ever been on record. What separates the Travis Walton story from many is the fact that there were witnesses to the abduction. His co workers were there, described seeing the unidentified flying object as it came across their path as they were driving home from a day of logging. Travis Walton exited the vehicle and was struck down by a beam from the hovering craft. The remaining loggers in the car, compelled by absolute terror and certain that Walton was dead take off and fled the scene. For five days police looked for Walton and investigated each of the men that were traveling home that evening suspecting foul play.
All men that were involved in the case were given polygraph tests and all but one passed, with the remaining one failing to complete the test at the time. Later the remaining witness did agree to take the test and not surprisingly also passed. Travis Walton shocked the small town of Snowflake Arizona when he suddenly showed up after a mysterious absence of five days. A medical exam revealed a loss of weight, a small red spot on the interior of his elbow and strangely enough a lack of key tones in his urine. This would suggest that Walton was kept alive, but obviously not fed. Blood work did not detect the presence of any drugs in Walton's system. The medical exam would be a source of debate in the Walton story, however, the fact remains, in all the years since this incident occurred not one member of the logging team have deviated from their original story. There is also no evidence to support anything to the contrary, in spite of countless investigations by many.
