The truth is out there: Roswell incident recalled by local vet who was there 60 years ago
Hey, I didn't write the headline.
Sprouse, however, said he recalls people speaking about "alien bodies" immediately after the debris discovery.
"They took the bodies to a hangar, and there were two guards at each door with machine guns," he said.
Sprouse said one witness, a barracksmate, was an emergency-room medic who reported seeing what he called "humanoid" bodies in the hospital.
"They went to the ER room and two doctors and two nurses were called in, and they dissected two of those humanoid bodies," he said. "Then the doctors and nurses were transferred.
"My friend said he saw the bodies, and I believed him," Sprouse said. "He said, 'We don't think the humanoid ate food.' I don't know why he said that. The digestive system wasn't designed for food or something."
True, what Sprouse recalls is second-hand and inconclusive. Maybe he's just recalling goofy stories that circulated among base personnel. But if so, the bit about an unconventional digestive system not designed for food is conspicuously prescient in light of similar descriptions that surfaced decades later.
