Los Alamos National Laboratory Disappears a Deceased Employee

Source: Tom Horn and Chris Putnam, Exo-Vaticana, Defender Publishing, Crane, MO: 2013, pp. 445-464, and, posted May 20, 2006.

The abduction story in this post is typical in many ways, but unique in one aspect. It concretely brings together a UFO sighting, the alien abduction experience, and a top secret US Government facility called Los Alamos National Laboratories.

It is also unusual because it began in 1964, a few years before the Barney and Betty Hill saga of abduction. The Horn family troubles seem to have been precipitated by Clarence Horn, an Arizona police officer. While hunting in a remote neck of the woods, he found some strange, perfectly round craters in the ground. Each hole was about 20 feet across and 8 feet deep with smooth, glassy sides, which oddly enabled the holes to hold water. Each hole had a deer in it that had drowned trying to drink the water. There was no sign of construction or military activity in the vicinity.

Clarence took some photos and reported the holes to the police department where he worked. He also led a man from the Army Corps of Engineers to the site, but no one had any idea how the holes could have been made. To spare the wildlife, they were filled with rocks. Once The Phoenix Gazette wrote an article about it, the case seemed closed. This region was also famous for the 1975 Travis Walton case, in which a group of loggers saw one of their group be transported into a UFO.

A few days after the craters were discovered, an aunt who lived a few houses down from Clarence saw a UFO hovering over the Horn family home in El Mirage. She didn’t know what it was or what to call it at the time. The family essentially dismissed that report as being too weird to pursue. No one had a clue that Clarence’s discovery of the craters had opened a paranormal portal into which poured illness, terror, death, and mystery.

A few weeks later, Clarence’s daughter Vida awoke at 2 am screaming about short, bald-headed beings in her room, accompanied by a sulfurous smell. When family members came rushing in, the beings just vaporized. Up to that point, she had been a happy, popular teenager, but after that night she slowly descended into illness and depression.

Tom wrote in 2006, “For years following, my older sister would wake up at night with small gray “creatures” around her bed (my research shows that her first 'visit' coupled with her age and the beginning of menstruation might not have been a coincidence). This started long before the classic 'abduction' scenario was defined. Though we never spoke openly of this as a family, my sister shared privately with me about the experiences, but is loathe to speak of it anymore. Today my sister suffers from many physical debilitations. So many I've lost count. Slowly I've learned that her 'visitations' continue and include many of the same phenomena reported by other so-called abductees. She's experienced lost time, had waking nightmares of small beings pulling her from her bed by the feet, and so on.

[For two Eternal Gateways blog post descriptions of small beings pulling people out of bed by their feet, see the interview with Charles Osborne and the Claudia King story.]

The family members weren’t Christians at the time, but eventually both Tom and Amil became pastors. Amil joined the Assembly of God denomination. Tom in particular wanted to understand what was going on with UFOs and aliens, so he began to read everything he could get his hands on.

 One thing became clear to Horn: The activity seemed demonic, but it was not possession; this was something else. He had worked for years in exorcism with a team of specialists, and so-called alien abduction was a malevolence of an entirely different kind. He wanted to understand and combat it.” Two books aided his research: The Cosmic Conspiracy by Stan Deyo and The Omega Conspiracy by Dr. I.D.E. Thomas. Through Thomas, Horn learned of the Brian Scott story, in which some of the alien creatures were about 7 feet tall, and others were 9 feet.

Vida eventually married a nuclear physicist that Tom calls “Joey.” Joey worked on nuclear and biological warfare in San Diego, but he was eventually transferred to Los Alamos National Laboratories (LANL). [I find it intriguing that Horn picked a name for Vida's husband that sounds a bit like a mob name.]

Rumors have abounded for years as to what goes on at LANL. Originally it was associated with the Manhattan Project in WWII. Today unsubstantiated myths fly about underground tunnels leading to an alien base beneath Archuleta Mesa, alien bodies, and other paranormal events.

For another story about UFO/paranormal/Uri Geller research from their sister lab in Livermore, California see Jim Schnabel’s book Remote Viewers: The Secret History of America’s Psychic Spies, 1997, 162-169. Geller claimed that he was controlled by a spaceship called Spectra. The CIA and military had him thoroughly tested at Lawrence Livermore Lab. Things got so spooky that employees there were weeping when they told their stories to CIA rep Richard Kennett (a pseudo-name). Kennett himself had an amusing but wig-popping event in association with the research. All the spooky manifestations ended when a metallic voice on the phone told LLL to quit studying Uri Geller. They were happy to comply.

But I digress. One evening Vida and Joey had a few too many drinks and Vida confessed her troubled past with alien entities. To her shock, Joey didn’t blink. Instead, also under the influence of a few too many, confessed to her that those things were real and that they dealt with them at LANL.

“Soon after that discussion, he disappeared, never to be heard from again. (Was the house bugged, or did “they” report his conversation?) When her husband did not return home, Vida started calling everybody she could think of. Nobody had heard from him, not family or friends. She finally called the police department to report him as missing. Soon afterward, she received a return call from somebody at Los Alamos who told her that Luciano had been killed ‘in a job-related accident.’”

The person on the phone related this information as if they were discussing the price of beans. Vida was informed that there would be no release of the body and no death certificate. The stunned and grieving widow tried to collect his pension, but could not with no death certificate. With no income, unpaid bills began to accumulate. Fortunately, Vida’s daughter, Lavida, worked for the Social Security Administration. She began making phone calls and rattling cages. Mysteriously, impediments evaporated, and Vida was told that she would have Joey’s pension and benefits.

As is typical in so many abduction cases, Vida was not the only experiencer in the family. Lavida had her own stories to tell. She and her mother drove around a road barrier one day and saw an unidentifiable glowing object in a field. They both experienced missing time and found the car relocated when they came to. After that event, Lavida began sleepwalking and losing her eyesight. She developed a “pseudotumor.” She and her boyfriend saw spooky shadows in her yard one night when she awoke standing by the back door. Her boyfriend thought that she had been mugged, because she had a vicious two inch gash in the back of her head that needed stitches. At the hospital, her blood showed “high toxicity.” And of course, in the hospital she was visited by two weird strangers who told her, "It's not about what you are now, but what they are going to make of you."

If you want to know about this couple’s encounter with Stephen Spielberg’s company in Seattle, you’ll have to read the book. It is clear that Spielberg has a fascination with UFOs and the abduction phenomenon.

“What happened next to Lavida may or may not have been connected with the Spielberg-Washington event, but as she arrived home she found several messages on her telephone answering machine. Somebody named Sharon had started leaving a message when a signal from somewhere else bled over onto the recording. It is electrical and spooky sounding, and it is difficult to make out exactly what is being said, but the recording sounds like, ‘This is Seir…I’m going to have to call her and see if I’m making her menstruate…Now, colly.’

In demonology, Seir (also known as Seire, Seere, or Sear)is a Prince of hell with twenty-six legions of demons under his command. He can go any place on Earth in a matter of seconds to accomplish the will of the conjurer, while ‘colly’ is a verb meaning ‘to make soiled, filthy, or dirty.’”

You can go to the Exo-Vaticana website at and listen for yourself. I did so, and must admit that the recording is obscure. The beginning might be “this year” or “is she here,” but “This is Seir” is possible. I heard an sh sound in there. I disagree with the last word being “colly,” but I couldn’t tell you what it is. I hear an n sound. The word menstruate sounded like magistrate to me, but I can’t really tell for sure.

Lavida has had other paranormal experiences that indicate that her home at that time was being influenced by entities that didn’t belong there. Her story and that of Vida ends with a meeting which author Tom Horn attended which was held inside an unnamed state building. It was all hush-hush with a federal investigator, a dozen other experiencers, and attorneys for both sides. There was a non-disclosure agreement and a monetary settlement. Tom hints that there is "substantially more to this story that cannot yet be told, including information about other government ‘counselors’ and what can only be thought of as highly placed ‘covens’ within national agencies that direct abductees according to certain protocols…”

Tom has come to some conclusions: “1) at least some UFO activity is supernatural deception; 2) true ‘alien abduction’ is demonic in nature; and 3) both are ultimately subject to the authority of Christ." Tom reports that Vida and Lavida are now free of their paranormal torments.

I totally agree with Tom’s conclusions and would add that narratives continue to accumulate that place high level U.S. personnel in the middle of the story. I will have more to say about the book Exo-Vaticana and the companion work Petrus Romanus by Horn and Putnam. I also want to deal with a book called The Jesuits by Malachi Martin. I would love to hear from readers who have listened to the audio message on their website. What do you think it said? Stay tuned.
