These seem to be the only related, published, descriptions;We know that the picture featured in Lankford's supposed article, which she had allegedly been reading and discussing just before the incident, was almost certainly a well known hoax photograph in which the figure does indeed have a very shiny, chromium sort of appearance. Is there a possibility that after the first night, descriptions were subtly shifted to make the 'visitors' less like the picture in Lankford's article?
'Kentucky New Era'
"The visitors were wearing what looked to be metal plate".
About 35 or 40 minutes later, they noticed "two or three shiny little men," about three or four feet tall...".
"The little men were described as follows: three to four feet tall, shiny "like chrome" all over, arms which stretched to the ground and oversize hands, slick bald heads with big eyes and pointed ears".
Mrs. Sutton said the figure "looked like it was made of aluminium foil. It had two big eyes, pretty far apart," she said.
Sutton said that the little man, which he described as being three and a half to four feet tall, looked like the bones of a skeleton with shiny metal over them".
However, not one of these characteristics seems to have been mentioned to Ledwith and are absent from the resulting drawings.
In the 'women's' sketch, which is based only on Alene and Vera's description, whereas Alene is quoted as saying on that same day, the creature "looked like it was made of aluminium foil", it's noted on the sketch:
Skin (or covering) -
"...it seemed to be the actual skin".
Not exactly consistent and yet another questionably aspect of the story.
Perhaps we can also exclude this 'metallic' attribute as reliable evidence?
