Is there photographic evidence of the real Men in Black (MIB)? I get asked this question a lot. The short answer is quite possibly yes…but it’s very, very, very rare. Perhaps even rarer than a clear photo of everybody’s favorite furry humanoid—Bigfoot.
That being said, of the few examples of MIB caught on camera that do exist (or are considered more authentic than others), the backstories behind them are just as important. They allow us some additional insight into the MIB’s strange world and how they may operate. Yet these instances of catching the MIB on camera are still quite far and few in between.
And, fewer than most people on the Internet would have you believe.
Last year I did a presentation for the 2019 Mysteries of Space and Sky (MSS) conference in Gambrills, Maryland. It was organized by the gracious Dr. Peter Resta who holds these events each and every year. Although last year he wasn’t sure he was going to have one. After a little visit from “the MIB”…(or rather that Man Is Bamforth) he changed his mind.
Also at the conference was Anthony C. Hayes, a reporter for the Baltimore Post-Examiner. Much to my surprise, he was interested in learning more about the real Men in Black phenomenon as well as doing a story on it, so we arranged for an interview. I was quite impressed by the questions Mr. Hayes asked and I am pleased with how the article turned out.
The telephone seems to be a popular device to high strangeness. I’ve heard reports of conversations with the dead to correspondences with life forms from another time, or even another dimension. Telemarketing tactics aside, there are quite a few reports of these creepy calls, which might suggest that something out there is attempting to use our telecommunication systems to make contact with us.
And, one of those examples is found in the peculiar case of Gary Sudbrink.
In 1993, Gary was an Air Force captain assigned to medical pharmacy work in San Antonio, TX. In February of that same year, he planned an unannounced, surprise trip to visit friends and family in Long Island, NY.
Even though he didn’t tell anyone about his trip prior to departure, it seems that someone or something else already knew…
Recently, I did an interview for the API Case Files Podcast with its host, Marsha Barnhart. In the interview, we talk about my research into the Men in Black and other areas of high strangeness, which I chronicle in my book “The Spectrum.”
Marsha was someone I initially contacted about a 2008-09 case that she investigated for the Aerial Phenomena Investigations (API) team. Even though it’s a multifaceted case, it’s probably best known for containing surveillance footage of two purported Men in Black (MIB) entering a hotel lobby in search of the manager at the heart of the case.
Thanks to everyone who tuned in to listen to my interview on the Midnight in the Desert radio broadcast.
Here is a link to the video (along with original audio testimony) regarding the Men in Black caught on surveillance cameras back in 2009 that I referenced on the show…
Kudos to Marsha Barnhart from API for supplying me with key information to set the record straight on this incredible encounter. She was a great resource in helping me uncover additional info regarding this case.
But the case is not just a simple MIB one. It is truly a strange event that has many different components to it.
