Cape Girardeau, Missouri, is 115 miles southeast of St. Louis. Sikeston is 35 miles south of
Cape Girardeau. The Missouri Institute for Aeronautics (MIA) was based in Sikeston in 1941,
and is described as the source of the military that retrieved the crashed alien disk and three
alien bodies on the night of April 12, 1941, from a rural farm site a little north of
Sikeston between Cape Girardeau and Chaffee.
February 26, 2016 Springfield, Missouri - The earliest known American UFO crash site where a credible eyewitness saw three small, identical non-humans was six full years before other reported UFO crashes in the Roswell, New Mexico, region. The earliest high strangeness crash is known as the 1941 Cape Girardeau, Missouri, alien craft and bodies retrieval that is mentioned in one of the alleged U. S. government MJ-12 documents entitled, “PROJECT WHITE HOT INTELLIGENCE ESTIMATE (PRELIMINARY).
” MJ-12 Part I: PROJECT WHITE HOT INTELLIGENCE ESTIMATE
(PRELIMINARY), September 19, 1947. See Majestic Documents website below.
The MJ-12 document states about UFO crashes:
MJ-12 Part III: Scientific Probabilities - PROJECT WHITE HOT INTELLIGENCE
ESTIMATE (PRELIMINARY), September 19, 1947.
1. “Based on all available evidence collected from recovered exhibits currently under study ...[these recovered evidences] are deemed extraterrestrial in nature. This conclusion was reached as a result of comparisons of artifacts from the Missouri discovery in 1941. The technology is outside the scope of U. S. science, [outside] even that of German rocket and aircraft development.”
Jumping to Part 5, NATIONAL SECURITY STRUCTURE, it says:
MJ-12 Part V: National Security Structure - PROJECT WHITE HOT INTELLIGENCE
ESTIMATE (PRELIMINARY), September 19, 1947.
“With the passage of the National Security Act of 1947, and the historical discovery of extraterrestrial hardware and live extraterrestrial creatures — [this] has presented an unprecedented situation with regard to maintaining secrecy related to the information contained in this report.
… Even the recovery case of 1941 did not create a unified intelligence effort to exploit possible technological gains with the exception of the Manhattan Project. [ Atomic bomb development)]
We now have an opportunity to extend our technology beyond the threshold that we have achieved, by directly working with the aliens on technology transfer.”
Both of the MJ-12 White Hot document references to the year 1941 refers to alien technology and three alien bodies retrieved from a Cape Girardeau, Missouri, crash now thought to have been on April 12, 1941. The MJ-12 document also refers to a “neutronic propulsion device” possibly from the Missouri 1941 UFO crash that was given to physicist Robert Oppenheimer to apply in his Manhattan Project’s atomic bomb creations, which were first tested at White Sands, New Mexico, in July 1945 and dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, a month later in August 1945.
1941 Cape Girardeau, Missouri, UFO Crash Estimated date: April 12, 1941
Cape Girardeau, Missouri, on the Mississippi River, is 16 miles northeast
of Chaffee. Around 8 PM Central on April 12, 1941, a disc-shaped UFO crashed
mid-way between the two small towns. Three identical-looking, small
non-humans in leotard-like silver suits died at the scene.
In the Cape Girardeau, Missouri, case, it was around 8 PM local time on April 12, 1941, when Baptist Reverend William Guy Huffman, age 52, received an urgent phone call from the Cape Girardeau Police Department. His ministerial services were needed at a sudden, terrible accident in the farm country midway between Cape Girardeau and Chaffee that are about sixteen miles apart. A policeman arrived at the Huffman home to take Reverend Huffman.

When the Reverend returned to his house later that night, he told his family they could never talk about what he was going to say only once: “There were three intact ‘little people’ from another world at the crash site of a silver disc.” Intact meant there was no outer damage to their tight, shiny, silver leotard-like suits. The beings seemed to die from not being able to breathe. A man was there with two cameras and took photos. One photo was later given to Rev. Huffman, who showed his family, left the photo with his son who would repeatedly show it to his family and eventual daughter, Charlette Mann. Charlette was not born at the time of the Cape Girardeau crash, but she has spoken many times to researchers and in public about the dozen times or so that growing up she saw the photo of the extraterrestrial that her grandfather gave her father.
In April 1941, Where Would E. T.
Craft and Alien Bodies Be Secretly Stored?
U. S. Department of War was formed in 1789 and dissolved in 1947,
with the creation of the U. S. Air Force and National Military Establishment
that was re-named Dept. of Defense in 1949.
In April 1941, there was a War Department, but there was no Pentagon, no Area 51, no CIA , no NSA. So where would secret extraterrestrial bodies and their craft be taken so no one in the public and media could find out?

Long-time resident of Cape Girardeau, 53-year-old Paul Blake Smith, has written a new 2016 book entitled MO41 - The Bombshell Before Roswell about an April 1941 Cape Girardeau crash. In the process, he learned there is a high probability that the three identical beings and their damaged disk were first transported to Washington, D. C., to a subterranean basement underneath the Capitol. Paul speculates that the three extraterrestrial bodies in jars and the pieces of damaged spacecraft were shown to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, his Secretary of State Cordell Hull, his Army Chief of Staff George Marshall; and then-powerful Missouri Democrat Senator Harry S. Truman, head of the Senate Special Committee to Investigate the National Defense Program.
Those powerful men would have been sworn to secrecy in the interest of national security, so they remained silent. Reinforcing the possibility that the nation’s Capitol building was a 1941 repository for the UFO crash debris and alien bodies from Cape Girardeau, Paul Smith recently told me in a recorded interview how Reverend Turner Holt — a cousin of FDR’s 1941 Secretary of State Cordell Hull — was allegedly shown three dead, identical-looking grey-colored aliens inside large glass jars in a sub-basement room of the Capitol. Here is how it all began.

Paul Blake Smith, Author, MO41 The Bombshell Before Roswell © March 2016, Springfield, Missouri: “It seems that pastor William G. Huffman came back to his Cape Girardeau home fairly late looking pretty pale and shaken one night in mid-April of 1941. His family was very concerned, so he said, ‘I’ll tell you this once and I will never tell you what happened to me again.’
He said he received a phone call from someone earlier that evening presumably from a Cape policeman or police associate to go to an airplane crash reported outside of town to see if the Reverend could offer some amount of spiritual comfort. When the two men got to the crash site, they found a fire blazing, being fought by firemen. It surrounded a crashed metal spaceship that was silvery grey and round. It was damaged lying on the ground with metallic debris in the grass.
Nearby were three identical Grey aliens, almost as if they were released from a cookie cutter. The aliens that we recovered were ‘incinerated from within.’ So they could not breathe our atmosphere and had burned their inner organs and that’s why they would appear intact on the outside as they did in Cape Girardeau.
WITHOUT ANY DAMAGE TO THE SURFACE OF THEIR BODIES.
That’s correct. The aliens were pulled from the Cape Girardeau crash and two were set out on the grass side by side and a third was attempting to breathe. Rev. Huffman said he could see this one’s chest going up and down until it finally expired. Two of them were clearly dead and lifeless. A third was gasping for air on the grass lying on its back unable to breathe our oxygen-rich atmosphere. None of the three had any visible injuries.
Rev. Huffman said prayers over the last creature before it died and went limp right in front of him. Then he got up and he peaked into the spaceship through the damaged hole and noticed its small instrument panel and dials and knobs and even a couple of small seats along with a silver metal band around the inside of this cockpit or flight deck and it was studded with odd, indecipherable symbols.
At the site were FBI agents, policemen, firemen and at least two newsmen with big flash cameras blazing and assorted farm people picking through the rubble. One dead alien was actually propped up and posed in a photograph.
Sketch of April 1941 Grey Alien Photo Remembered
by Rev. Huffman's Granddaughter Charlette Mann

identical bodies retrieved from crashed UFO near Cape Girardeau, Missouri, April 12, 1941.

who gave last rites to the dead and dying extraterrestrial biological entities at crash site.
CAN YOU GIVE A DETAILED DESCRIPTION NOW FROM THE TOP OF THE HEAD TO THE BOTTOM OF THE FEET OF WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED FROM PEOPLE WHO SAW THE PHOTO?
There were no feet visible in the photo. However, Charlette Mann said that when she saw it (photo) many times, the creature was being propped up under the arms by two men — one in shirt sleeves; one in a light waistcoat, she calls it. And the creature had a large bulbous head with big, black shiny eyes just almost like a doll’s eyes. And it had almost no nostrils — maybe tiny dots — and a slit for a mouth, just very tiny. Long, thin arms and legs and grey with a crinkly, silvery-looking skin or coating of some kind or flight suit. And that it clearly had the three fingers and one long thumb per hand in a flash photo.
The person who took the picture, according to Rev. Huffman, stuck the camera back in his shirt pocket where he had found it. This was his second camera. He was also using a large Speedgraphic-type flashbulb camera as if he was a newsman.
Graflex Speed Graphic format: 2.25''x3.25'' medium format,
Miniature Speed Graphic, early 1940s. Produced by Graflex in Rochester, NY,
the Speed Graphic is commonly called the most famous press camera with the
most significant improvements occurring in 1947 with the introduction
of the Pacemaker Speed Graphic. It was standard equipment
for many American news photographers until the mid-1960s.
And this same person came to the Huffman home two weeks later and handed over a copy of the photograph he took with the smaller camera and said, ‘I have a copy of this. I want you to have a copy of this.
THAT CONFUSION ABOUT USING THE LARGE FLASH CAMERA AND A SMALLER CAMERA — DOES THAT REINFORCE FOR YOU THE POSSIBILITY THAT THIS PERSON TAKING PHOTOS AT THE EXTRATERRESTRIAL CRASH SITE IN CAPE GIRARDEAU WAS WORKING FOR A MILITARY AGENCY?
I find it very likely that this was a local newsman who was called and rushed to the site and he was a big photo camera bug and he had one (camera) with him that was a smaller one, but he had a working news type camera with a flash attachment and was taking pictures at that time with it. And maybe ran out of camera film, I’m thinking, is why he produced a second smaller camera that he smuggled past the Army and got out of the site.
PAUL, WHY WASN’T THIS ON THE FRONT PAGE OF EVERY MISSOURI NEWSPAPER THE VERY NEXT DAY WITH THE PHOTO OR PHOTOS THIS MAN TOOK?
Apparently, according to Rev. Huffman, everyone was sworn to secrecy. And when you think about it, if you were to come forward after the crash when everyone else was sworn to secrecy and say, ‘I was there. I took pictures of a flying saucer that crashed and aliens,’ you would probably be drummed out of your job and out of your church and you would lose your way of life in the area and probably lose the respect of people who had no idea that it was the truth.
BUT THE EVIDENCE WOULD HAVE BEEN THERE. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE PHOTO IN THE PAPER AND IT COULD HAVE CRACKED IT OPEN AND THE TRUTH COULD HAVE BEEN THERE RIGHT BACK IN APRIL OF 1941.
I find it very possible that someone went to the editor of the Cape Girardeau newspaper and told them, ‘You will not run this story. I don’t care if you did hear from your newsman, who told you all about it.’
President Harry Truman Kept Unusually Close Contact with Editor of Cape Girardeau Newspaper
It’s interesting to note that President Harry Truman invited the editor and owner of the paper, the publisher, to the White House twice during his presidency. And when his presidency was over, he (Truman) visited the newspaper’s headquarters in Cape Girardeau twice. And on one visit, the report in the newspaper said, ‘Harry cleared the room of all reporters, friends and aides to both men (president and editor) and wanted to discuss something that was very secret between himself and the newspaper owner and it was never revealed later.
The Army showed up, surrounded this site and took people off to the side in groups to warn them and swear them to silence. ‘Do not speak of this. This never happened. This is a matter of national security. You will keep your mouths shut. Put down all notes and photos and debris.’
So, they did as they were told, including Rev. Huffman. And he left with his police associate and went home. That’s when he told the story that night. And as I said, he apparently kept his mouth shut for the rest of his life.
Rev. Huffman Received Alien Photo
and Gave to His Son, Guy Huffman
Two weeks later, after the crash, the photographer walked up to the Huffman home on Main Street in Cape Girardeau and gave William a copy of a snapshot he took with a secondary smaller camera he kept hidden in his pocket. It was of the alien being propped up by two men in civilian attire. One man was in shirt sleeves because it was so warm. It was the grey, big-headed alien in the picture, about 4 feet in height, and it scared Charlette when she saw it about a dozen or so years later.
CHARLETTE MANN WAS HIS (REV. HUFFMAN) GRANDDAUGHTER.
Correct. She claims she saw the picture at least twelve times, maybe more, when she was a little girl growing up in a small town in Kansas. Her father would trot out the picture at family parties and she heard little mentions of this Cape Girardeau UFO crash incident.
Was Insurance Salesman Walter Wayne Fisk
Working for the Government When He Took
the Photo and Disappeared With It?
WAS THE PERSON CALCULATED ON THE PART OF COUNTERINTELLIGENCE TO BEFRIEND THE FATHER SPECIFICALLY TO GET THE PHOTO AND NEVER RETURN IT?
Well, Rev. Huffman’s son, Guy Huffman, ran a furniture store in a small town in Kansas. Across the street was an insurance salesman and his name was Walter Wayne Fisk. And Mr. Fisk struck up conversations in this small town with Guy Huffman and the subject came around to extraterrestrials. That’s when Guy Huffman mentioned he had a photograph that he wanted Mr. Fisk to take a look at. Fisk was most keen to see it and came over to a dinner party one night and said, ‘Well, this is most interesting. I’ll take it home and look at it more closely since I’m a photographic expert and I’ll tell you whether I think it’s a fake or not.’
He (Fisk) not only did NOT return the picture, he left town shortly thereafter and they never saw him again!
There was a story in the Los Angeles Times a number of years ago that revealed AIG insurance company was invented as a front for American intelligence to squeeze information out of Americans. It was co-run by General William Donovan, who worked for Franklin Roosevelt and they would send intelligence agents out into the field posing as insurance agents to get Americans to talk about their personal and private lives and feedback the information to intelligence headquarters. [Research source: Linda Wallace, seekingmoinfo.com and author of Covert Retrieval.]
It could be that Walter Fisk was one of these agents, an Army intel officer who was working in insurance to gather information and he found the photograph — at least in theory — that hit the jackpot. He knew that this was something that had to be scooped up and gotten away from the Huffman family and gotten away from the entire American public. That’s an hypothesis.
Sikeston Missouri Institute for Aeronautics (MIA)
Retrieved Crashed Disk and Alien Bodies
WHAT IS THE BEST INFORMATION ABOUT WHERE THE THREE DEAD, SMALL GREY ALIEN BODIES WERE TAKEN AND WHERE WAS THE DAMAGED CRAFT TAKEN?
Apparently they were all taken by the Sikeston Missouri Institute for Aeronautics, an Army air base that was called in that night (of the crash April 12, 1941). The Sikeston MIA Army people were involved. And it’s interesting to note that Charles Root was in charge of the Sikeston MIA air base and that he was transferred to Sikeston directly from big shots in Washington, D. C.
General Charles Berton Root, flight instructor and squadron commander,
Missouri Institute for Aeronautics in Sikeston, Missouri, who would likely
have seen the Cape Girardeau alien craft debris and bodies. A few months later
in 1942, he assumed command of the Martin B-26 Transition School in Dodge City, Kansas,
and later became Commanding Officer of the 504th Bomb Group of the 20th Air Force in the Marianas. By January
1949, General Root was Director of Maintenance Engineering
at the Ogden Air Materiel Area, Hill AFB, Utah. By 1958, he was Chief of AMC's Electronics
Defense System Division in NYC, and by 1959, he was Commander of the Rome Air Materiel Area.
So, if the crash happened that night, that might explain how someone could have contacted the nearest air base, which was in Sikeston about 35 to 40 miles away from Cape Girardeau, and how they could have gotten direct orders from Washington to go into the site, take everything over and haul it back to Sikeston where it was held probably for about a day or two and flown out.”
