The supposed incident of March 1948 (just nine months after the Roswell, NM weather balloon incident) that now fuels the annual U.F.O. Conference at Aztec, New Mexico purports that a 100-foot-diameter disk spacecraft landed near Aztec, and that The Guvvermint hauled away 16 alien bodies. This 1950 hoax derived from a gullible newspaper reporter passing along the unverified story of Silas M. Newton and Leo GeBauer; the latter two men were convicted of fraud on 14 October 1952 and sent to prison.
