...and this time they're posing for photographs.


Have the Kentucky Goblins Returned? Exclusive Photos!


Hello, my name is [David]. I received your contact information through a mutual acquaintance who assures me that you are well equipped to investigate peculiar problems. Furthermore, I believe you may have interest in these events beyond any compensation that I am prepared to deliver in order to have these issues sorted.

For the past 6 months I have been living in a rural home located on the border of West Virginia and Kentucky where my family is nightly assaulted by creatures that I have come to believe are of an extraterrestrial origin. These beings appear to be the size and stature of a small child, devoid of any facial features save for large, oily eyes and lipless mouths. They frighten my children by peering through their bedroom windows, chirping at one another. They actively attempt to enter my home in the middle of the night. Last month they took my dog. The police refuse to provide any further assistance, attributing the problems to wild animals and forwarding my complaints to the state game commission.

I believe they are coming from an abandoned mine located on the edge of my property. Though I’m armed, I’m afraid that I’m far too frightened to enter the mine by my lonesome, and cannot convince any sympathetic friends to accompany me, though I cannot blame them. I am convinced that the only answer is to collapse the mine.

I believe this is where we can be mutually beneficial to one another. If you are prepared to assist me in this matter, I can offer you permission to record and document these events under the condition of anonymity. I can guarantee you evidence of these creatures which I assure you are not “wild animals”.

Please respond ASAP. Thank you.

This sounds more like a 1970s cheapo cash-in movie adaptation of the original story! It would be great if being shot at hadn't put the Goblins off a return visit, but maybe that state of affairs might not last...

Oldrover's post is quite interesting and I wonder if that blog, (it can't be reached), was set up by the Planet Weird people?

They had contact with David and started an investigation there are a few parts:
actually quite good.

There is a round table featuring several paranormal podcasts discussing the Heiller case. http://www.blurryphotos.org/bp-bonus-hellier-roundtable/

I'm not really sure about this. How much actual physical evidence is there? The first thing I saw as the lead up to them doing the Planet Weird videos on Hellier suggest that there wasn't any physical evidence at all, just a few photos and emails. Which might be fake. As someone once said, it's easy to make a mystery unsolvable in fiction by simply not writing a solution.

June 20, 2012 2:47 am Greg Newkirk
Greg is the contributing editor for Who Forted?, as well as the head movie making dude at Fight or Flight Productions. When he's not occupied by writing about the wide world of the weird, he's busy directing and editing films like The Bigfoot Hunter: Still Searching or perusing used bookstores for antique occult manuscripts. He's currently in pre-production on his latest feature length documentary Planet Weird which you should totally check out (and get cool stuff for helping). He currently lives in Toronto.
interesting. So the article is by Newkirk himself.

Now this is interesting... when you read the book Greenfield wrote that Newkirk references as having found when trying to look up Terry R. Wriste: https://www.scribd.com/doc/3255122/SECRET-CIPHER-OF-THE-UFONAUTS
Greenfield doesn't present it as fiction. His writings... are... weird, they tie UFOs into ancient cultic ciphers and metaphysical stuff. But he does have something odd to say:
Allen H. Greenfield: Terry, when we first met I certainly knew that "Terry R. Wriste" was a nom de guerre, because you were then writing rather inflammatory stuff about guerilla warfare and revolution, and what-not.
Um, what? that's an odd thing to just drop in at the beginning. What sort of publication was this?

But I digress. The significance is that it implies that this person HAS written stuff on his own. Thus it's not absurd to think that if it's a real person using a pseudonym(or nom-de-guerre, which literally translates as "name of war"), that they'd continue using it.

I personally think it's more likely that Newkirk read Greenfield's book and decided to add this in to spice up the story. If you take the Wriste connection literally, then Wriste was implying that the Greys were pestering Christie because he lived too close to one of their bases. But it doesn't match with what Wriste said in Greenfield's book. In short Wriste described Greys as interstellar conquerors who use mind control to subjugate populations. The general tone of the messages sent to Newkirk by Wriste are different. The weird codes in the second one are the sort of thing he'd do. But they're more taunting than anything useful. Also Terrry R. Wriste was violently confrontational with Greys. Why would he tell someone who isn't to go look at one of their bases? One of the interviews in Greenfield's book described narrowly avoiding getting killed or captured by Greys when he tried poking around one of their bases. In that case he didn't even get close enough to even see the actual base. Why would he try to talk a videographer into doing something that had a high likelihood of death or capture by hostile aliens??

I know it seems like an odd aspect to study, but.... Newkirk keeps talking about the guy. If we assume Newkirk didn't make it up, then Wriste was trying to bait Newkirk into investigating Grey bases when he recommended that Christie contact him. This is indirectly mentioned in what Christie said about having found a cave/mine that the Greys were coming from.

Honestly after pondering the original book, I think Terry Wriste is fully a fictional character. He's this weirdly multi-competent character in the first book, I mean he supposedly takes a ROCK and retrieves a map of alien bases stored as analog optical data in it's crystalline lattice. If you cross reference with what he tells Newkirk, this map he pulled out of the rock is how he knew there was a base at the specific location. This is allegedly something he learned to do from one of his good alien friends; a refugee from Procyon(which has already been taken over by the Greys).

But yeah, this is really weird stuff. It just feels like the sensible thing is to conclude this incident is fiction written by Newkirk.
