Fitch Bits: The New England Man in Black

DID YOU KNOW that New England has its own Men in Black stories?

The most famous one happened to a fellier by the name of Dr. Herbert Hopkins in Old Orchard Beach in Maine. He was putting supposed UFO abductees and witnesses under hypnosis and studying their cases. He must have gotten a little to close to some form of truth because a Man in Black showed up at his house on September 11, 1976!

He was your typical Man in Black with a black suit, white shirt, and black hat. His skin was pale, his lips were too red, and he lacked any hair; eyebrows and eyelashes included.

He knew facts about Hopkins that he had no business knowing, including that he had two coins in his pocket. The Man in Black ordered him to place one in his palm. The coin then blurred and completely disappeared while he held it!

The Man in Black told Hopkins that the coin would never be seen on this plain of reality ever again. He also made a point of telling him that Barney Hill, of New Hampshire, died because he knew too much.

The Man in Black then shakily walked back to his black car and drove away, never to be seen by Hopkins again.


While I have you here, How about getting your very own Ouija Board, made by me! They help support the site and you'll never find a higher quality, handmade board anywhere!

I actually put quite a bit of effort into them!
