Mystery Drones and Nuclear Missile Silos
By Corey Hutchins/David Axe

For weeks, mysterious unidentified flying objects over the Eastern Plains region of Colorado have vexed residents, law enforcement, the military, and state and federal officials.

Those who see them say they appear in the night sky, often several at a time, their locations marked by the light they emit. Audibly buzzing, they hover and maneuver in precise formations.

The mystery of their origin has gripped Colorado, where news of a sighting makes near-daily headlines and no one has yet copped to operating the aircraft. The state’s governor, Jared Polis, deployed the state plane to hunt them down after a pilot believed one of the objects came too close to a Flight for Life helicopter. And a constellation of government agencies has formed a task force to get to the bottom of the mystery.

Representatives from some 77 agencies, including the military and the FBI, met for a closed-door briefing in the small town of Brush on Jan. 6.

“The group is not going to discuss the details of its inner workings, and is not planning to provide incremental updates on its activities,” Ian Gregor, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson based in Los Angeles, told The Daily Beast. “But we will inform the public about any important developments.”

The FAA has reached out to UAS test sites, drone companies, and companies that have authorization to operate drones in the area, “but we have not been able to determine that any of these operators were the source of the reported drone flights,” an FAA statement read.

In the vacuum of any definitive answer about who might be responsible for the aircraft, theories have ricocheted around the internet. Media have been drawn to small towns on the Colorado-Nebraska border. A storm chaser crew is on the case.

Some observers believe the UFOs could be alien visitors. Other locals say what they’ve been seeing are merely quadcopter-style drones.

“There’s nothing about these sightings that’s inconsistent with drone technologies, so why reach for the most extreme explanation?” Seth Shostak, an astronomer with the SETI Institute in California, which uses powerful sensors to search for aliens, told The Daily Beast.

“Besides, everyone knows that the alien spacecraft prefer the American Southwest,” Shostake joked. “Must be the Tex-Mex cuisine.”

What’s weird, even for those who discount the possibility that the UFOs are extraterrestrial in origin, is the low population of Eastern Colorado, an expanse of rural farmland. Why bother mounting such a sustained campaign of drone aerobatics in a place with so few people and so little industry?

Unless, of course, people and industry aren’t the targets. Some of the counties where drones have been spotted do butt up against F.E. Warren Air Force Base in neighboring Wyoming. There, airmen at the base man and protect around 200 underground silos housing Minuteman nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), each packing enough firepower to wipe out several cities.

It’s disturbing enough to see formations of glowing drones maneuvering in a grid pattern over sparsely populated expanses of land. It’s more disturbing still to see them lingering near nuclear-missile silos.

Since residents first reported the UFOs around Dec. 20, local and state government officials, including the Air Force, have denied they have anything to do with the nocturnal air shows. No one can quite figure out what the apparent drones are doing, or why.

The mystery has become big news in Colorado.

Michael Yowell, a captain at the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, has added drone patrol to his law enforcement beat. He told The Daily Beast he has seen the mysterious objects more than once over Hugo, a town with a population of fewer than 800.

An abnormal red light will appear on the horizon, he said, and soon a drone, or whatever it is, will buzz by overhead. He described the curious phenomenon to The Daily Beast as square in shape with red lights on the corners and a white light in the middle that move around at a consistent speed of about 45 miles per hour at a few hundred feet in the air regardless of the wind, emitting a low hum and high-pitched whine.

“It doesn’t sound like your normal drone,” he said. “It sounds like a motor. It sounds like a jetliner when you’re standing next to an airport.”

The Air Force and the other military branches operate thousands of unmanned aerial vehicles ranging from airliner-size Global Hawk spy drones to Reaper hunter-killers the size of Cessnas. The military equips many of its ground units and ships with hand-launched drones including quadcopter-style models. The small, radio-controlled UAVs help scout ahead of ships and ground troops and patrol sensitive sites such as air bases and potentially missile fields.

In 2015, one of the Army’s hand-launched Raven drones strayed from Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, flew over the city, and crashed in a man’s yard. An investigation determined the operators had broken Army and FAA rules.  

The Air Force in particular also uses small drones as targets for developing countermeasures against an enemy’s own drones. The 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren hosts a security squadron that protects the missile fields. Equipped like infantry and riding in Huey helicopters, the security airmen train to defend the ICBMs against protesters, criminals, terrorists, saboteurs and even clueless civilians who might wander toward the silos.

When cheap drones hit the market and terror groups began modifying them to carry explosives, the security airmen started carrying devices to track potential aerial intruders. Louisiana-based Air Force Global Strike Command, which oversees the service’s ICBMs, confirmed to the Gazette newspaper in Colorado Springs that it conducts counterdrone exercises out of F.E. Warren.

According to the Gazette, the security squadron at the base uses equipment developed by Dedrone in San Francisco. The Dedrone tech detects and pinpoints the radio signals that connect drones to their human operators. Testing the tech could require deploying actual drones over the base.

But Air Force Global Strike Command repeatedly has insisted the apparent drones people are seeing over Colorado aren’t its own.

“We can confirm that the drones spotted in Colorado and Nebraska are not from F.E. Warren Air Force Base,” command spokesperson Carla Pampe told The Daily Beast in a statement. “We do have counterdrone systems. But we cannot speak to specifics due to operational security.”

It turns out the Air Force is just as curious about the mystery objects flying near its silos as civilians. “F.E. Warren is working with the FAA, the FBI and state and local authorities to determine the origins and operators,” Pampe said.

On Jan. 13, the Colorado Department of Public Safety announced it was scaling back its  investigations into the drone sightings that have turned Eastern Colorado into the epicenter of a baffling post-holiday media sensation.

“Despite all of the reported activity, we are still unaware of any crime being committed,” the department’s director, Stan Hilkey, said in a statement. “While I can’t conclusively say we have solved the mystery, we have been able to rule out a lot of the activity that was causing concern.”

Back in Lincoln County, Captain Yowell believes investigators will likely crack the case with old-fashioned police work. Area law enforcement have been asking residents to report any activity they think might be related to the aerial objects.

“We all agree that the way this is finally going to get resolved is somebody on the ground — or these drones are going to be homed back to a certain location, and that’s where we’re going to get our break,” Yowell said.

Man Behind Exotic US Navy Patents Speaks Out
By Kyle Mizokami

The elusive engineer behind several highly unusual patents, filed on behalf of the U.S. Navy, has broken his silence and finally spoken to the media. Salvatore Cezar Pais responded to emails sent by The War Zone, but his answers bring us no closer to how the technology behind the patents, which involve fusion power and other exotic tech, came about.

Dr. Pais, formerly an aerospace engineer with Naval Air Systems Command/ Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division and now at the Navy’s Strategic Systems Programs, recently achieved notoriety with the publication of patents involving compact fusion reactor energy—truly wild stuff that stretches the limits of science—and a “hybrid aerospace-underwater craft.

The two technologies combined could theoretically create a “UFO”-like craft similar to the one seen by U.S. Navy pilots in 2004 and 2014-15. Although highly unusual, Naval Air Systems’ Chief Technology Officer James Sheehy assured the U.S. Patent Technology Office (USPTO) that the technology behind them was indeed real, and that some aspects were already undergoing testing.

Pais recently published a paper in EEE Transactions on Plasma Science titled, “The Plasma Compression Fusion Device—Enabling Nuclear Fusion Ignition.” The device is essentially a fusion reactor, the holy grail of energy research. Fusion reactors promise cheap, limitless energy without complications of nuclear power—particularly nuclear meltdowns and the generation of nuclear waste.

Most major countries, as well as major corporations like Lockheed Martin, are working on their own fusion power projects. But the necessary breakthrough to make the tech operational is still thought to be decades away.

So how would the compact fusion reactor work? The success of the device relies on a part called a dynamic fusor. According to the patent:

    "Pais’ plasma chamber contains several pairs of these dynamic fusors, which rapidly spin and vibrate within the chamber in order to create a “concentrated magnetic energy flux” that can squish the gases together.

    "Coated with an electrical charge, the cone-shaped fusors pump fuel gases like Deuterium or Deuterium-Xenon into the chamber, which are then put under intense heat and pressure to create the nuclei-fusing reaction. Current technology at reactors around the world use superconductors to create a magnetic field."

In correspondence with The War Zone, Pais said he is confident about his inventions, but he didn't reveal any new details. He stated:

    "The fact that my work on the design of a Compact Fusion Reactor was accepted for publication in such a prestigious journal as IEEE TPS, should speak volumes as to its importance and credibility - and should eliminate (or at least alleviate) all misconceptions you (or any other person) may have in regard to the veracity (or possibility) of my advanced physics concepts."

Pais’ email to The War Zone includes a great deal of technical jargon, but also seems to tread a very careful line of government secrecy. When The War Zone polled subject matter experts, they expressed their doubts, with one suggesting Pais has drunk the “Kool-Aid” of bad science and another remarking that the claims are extraordinary—and thus require extraordinary proof.

Could Pais’ work be an effort by the Navy to replicate technology seen by U.S. Navy Super Hornet pilots? Or is it entirely different and separate from those UFO sightings? Even more bizarrely, could the “UFOs” represent real-world tests of technology that a Navy representative assured the USPTO was taking place? We’re no closer to finding out the truth ... but at least we now know Pais answers his emails.

Sound of Crying Babies Spook Residents of Pittsburg

Police are warning people in Pittsburgh to keep their doors shut and call police if they hear the sound of a baby crying and children calling for help outside their homes, according to local media.  

At least four people have reported hearing the strange noises outside their homes.

Each incident took place on the south side of the city and was reported predominantly by college students, but investigating police have been unable to find the source of the sounds.  

KDKA news reporter Royce Jones said police are warning people to stay inside and call 911 if they hear the 'creepy' noises.

According to the Trib Live, Pittsburgh Public Safety spokesman Chris Togneri said the police had received four reports of the recording being played outside homes in the south side of the city.

In a statement to the Daily Mail, Pittsburgh Deputy Public Information Officer Cara Cruz confirmed the cases and said the police would not be commenting further.

'Police have received multiple reports recently from people in the South Side area of the city of Pittsburgh who hear what sounds like a recording of a baby crying or a child’s voice asking for help,' the statement said.

'Zone 3 officers have responded to each call. In each case (four altogether), officers did not hear the sound or locate the source of the sound. However, we ask that anyone who hears something similar to these reports call 911 immediately.

'No one from Pittsburgh Police will be commenting on this at at this time.'

The four reports made so far all noted that it was a recording of babies crying and off children calling out for help.

According to KDKA, the people targeted have been predominantly college students.

'Obviously the people who live in the apartments where this is happening are freaked out,' Jones reported.

'They've contacted police whenever this happens. There are four reported incidents of this so far, police confirm, and every time Zone 3 officers respond to these calls, they don't find anybody.

'We don't know what the motive is.'

Locals have responded on Twitter to say they have also heard the noise.

Some claim it is bobcats or cats while others agree that they have heard an actual recording of children.

'My husband heard this on 3 separate spread out occasions the last being over the summer,' one user said.

'It was a girls voice in the distance saying help me. He was outside with our dogs. Twice late at night, once in the middle of the day. All three times he came and got me and nothing else hear.'

Great Water Monsters and Mer-Folk

Water-dwelling beasties abound in Scotland. Monsters and mermaids frolic and swim in our lochs and seas from the Highlands to Lowlands. Some are shy, while others seem to bask in the limelight.

The one thing that connects them is that they've all been spotted. They've all been recorded and noted. And, furthermore, there are people out there who believe they exist.

No review of Scottish beasties could start anywhere else but with the Loch Ness Monster, or "Nessie" to her friends (and there are many of them). She has appeared in legend since the sixth century, but the building of a new road around the loch - just southwest of Inverness - in the 1930's brought her international fame. Sightings of this long, humped lady have been frequent ever since she was famously sighted in 1934 by a London surgeon who had the foresight to snap off a couple of photos – and the sense to sell them to a daily paper.

Nessie's less well-known cousin is "Morag", who is said to inhabit Loch Morar, northwest of Fort William along the west coast near Mallaig. There have been fewer sightings around Loch Morar, being altogether more remote than Loch Ness. Yet when she has been seen, descriptions are very similar to Nessie.

Take the most famous sighting of Morag. It was 1969 when two local people - Duncan McDonell and William Simpson - were fishing in the loch. Suddenly they saw a long creature approaching their boat at great speed. It rammed them, and fearing they were to be capsized, the terrified fisher-folk started shooting. The beast disappeared into the depths of the loch but left them with the impression that it was between 20 and 30 feet long and had three humps. Sound familiar? Well it does to Neil Bass a biologist and member of the Loch Morar Investigation Team who spotted a "hump-shaped black object" and is convinced it's another Nessie.

Across Scotland there are monsters aplenty lurking in deep, dark water. So, just what's going on? Is it collective hysteria or is there really something down there? There have been a number of theories put forward to explain the animals' existence but the current top five claim they are either:

• A zeuglodon – put forward by biologist Roy P Mackal who thinks the monsters are a type of giant prehistoric snake-like creature thought to have become extinct about 20 million years ago.
• A plesiosaur – very similar to the above. Just substitute the word plesiosaur (a water-dinosaur) for zeuglodon.
• A log – what more is there to say, except that there are plenty of trees in Scotland.
• A sturgeon – biologist Adrian Shine thinks these creatures are nothing more exciting than a great, ginormous sturgeon - a freak-fish if you like.
• A bona fide monster – yes, yes, well, all right, it's possible.

Another creature currently living in Scotland's lochs is the kelpie, or water-horse. These watery quadrupeds wait by lochs for unsuspecting mortals. Should you ever mount a kelpie, then prepare for a watery doom, as the kelpie will canter into deep water and drown you. They can also take on human form, so should you spot a brooding man by the side of a loch with seaweed instead of hair, then you'd be well advised to run away. Fast.

The kelpie is transposed in the Highlands into the Each Uisge (sea horse), who lives in seas or lochs. If you see one, do not approach. Their fur is like Velcro and once you lay so much as a pinkie on its hide … then it's off to the deep with you. There he will devour you from top to toe, leaving only your liver to wash up on the shore as a warning to others that the Each Uisge has struck again.

Kelpies are not the only watery beasties living in Scotland. We are also awash with tales of finned people and mermaids. Finned people have often been sighted in Orkney close to their home at Eynhallow village. They are dark and swarthy with long fins, which they can cunningly disguise to look like cloaks. They are also rather modern, in that they are twinned with the underwater city of Finfolkhaheen – where they go to spend the winter.

Finmen often harass local fishermen and are known to abduct local men to provide husbands for their finwomen who had a vested interest in finding a mortal husband. If they did not, they have to settle for marrying a local finman and degenerating from a beautiful woman into an ugly crone. Marriage to a mortal man ensures their lovely looks last forever.

Similar to finpeople are mermaids, who have been bewitching mortals with their beautiful singing voices and exquisite beauty for hundreds of years.

If documentation is proof of existence then you could be fairly assured of the presence of fish-folk in our midst. The Aberdeen Chronicle is particularly fond of mermaid sightings, but stories have appeared in the London Times as late as 1809.
From the archive

What is interesting with all the reports is the consistency of the description. The mermaid is always young, beautiful, with soft white skin and long dark hair. Surprisingly the person reporting the sighting is not an old drunk who has left his glasses in the pub, but is often an upstanding and respected member of the community.

If you're beginning to think that there might be something in these fishy-stories, then you'll need to explain why it is that the mermaid is often to be found speaking Latin or singing hymns. Presumably she's been well educated at the "Underwater Church Academy" for young mermaids.

    * The last reported sighting of a mermaid in Scotland was in 1947 on the isle of Muck when an 80-year-old fisherman saw a mermaid combing her hair.

    * The most famous sighting was in 1900 by Alexander Gunn, who insisted he saw a mermaid in Sandwood Bay. He died in 1944 still believing in what he saw.

The Secrets of Fatima

The visions of three shepherd children in 1917 still fascinate and intrigue us.

On May 13, tens of thousands of pilgrims celebrated the 90th anniversary of the famous visions seen at Fatima, Portugal. In response to the continuing interest in the "third secret" given to the three shepherd children, which is rumored to have predicted the end of the Catholic church and/or the world, the Vatican's secretary of state, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone -- the Pope's second-in-command -- has declared that it is "pure fantasy."

To counter "the most absurd theses" Bertone has published The Last Fatima Visionary: My Meetings With Sister Lucia, which so far is only available in Italian. He said, "Clearing up the question was a pastoral concern."

The visions of a radiant "lady" floating above an oak tree at Fatima, Portugal, on a monthly basis from May to October 1917, have fascinated people for decades. Originally the sightings by three children were interpreted as being of the Virgin Mary, which is understandable considering the social and religious context of the percipients and the period.

The apparition of the lady was also associated with sightings of lights, strange clouds, the falling of "angel hair" and ultimately the spinning of the sun viewed by at least 50,000 people on Oct. 13, 1917. Witnesses to this were located at the Cova da Iria and at locations 15, 20 and 30 kilometers away. Heat from this "'solar" phenomenon dried wet clothes and apparently healed people who were exposed to it.

What is intriguing is that no one except the three children, namely Lucia dos Santos and her cousins Jucinta Marto and Francisco Marto (aged 10, 7 and 9, respectively) saw the lady. However, none of the children saw the same thing. Lucia was able to see the apparition and to hear and speak with her, apparently, in Portuguese. Jacinta saw and heard her, but understood little of the conversation. As for Francisco, he saw the "lady" speak, without moving "her lips."

This is a problem often encountered when dealing with multiple UFO sighting or abduction cases. There is usually one prime percipient while the others tend to miss the main action, remain silent or in abduction terminology are "switched off" during the encounter. It is significant that in this instance the children were closely related and the eldest was the main ringleader, who continued to have visions in adulthood.

In the first of two books about the Fatima apparitions, Heavenly Lights (EcceNova Editions, 2005), Joaquim Fernandes and Fina D'Armada cover the reports of the sightings of the lady and associated phenomena.

This is viewed with approval by parapsychologists Lawrence Kennedy and Sandra Sitzmann, who state:

The authors explain what actually happened during "The Miracle of the Sun." The evidence indicates that it was not an astronomical event but rather an aerial one that resulted when an alien craft caused a partial eclipse of the Sun and performed other amazing displays that bedazzled the thousands of curious onlookers who came to Fatima.

What emerges is a true telling of the Fatima incident that will stand the test of time as the leading book that establishes the extraterrestrial or inter-dimensional origin of this important case. In the great tradition of fact informing fantasy, so that the conclusions drawn are far-reaching rather than far-fetched, Heavenly Lights is a tour de force.

In Celestial Secrets: The Hidden History of the Fatima Cover-Up (EcceNova Editions, 2006), Fernandes and D'Armada go on to study the subject in two parts.

In the first part they show that the Portuguese press predicted the appearance of the apparitions, look at the specific geology of the sighting location, reveal that Lucia saw "angels" before 1917, uncover a fourth witness and take a look at the contactee syndrome.

The predictions in the press amount to an announcement in the March 10, 1917, edition of Diario de Noticias, which contained the numerical headline: 135917. This is interpreted as representing the May 13, 1917, the day the Fatima visions began. Two days before that date several national newspapers quoted a psychic called Antonio to the effect that on the 13th, "there will occur an event, with respect to the war, that will strongly impress the world."

The authors seem to think these psychic messages were part of an Operation Fatima organized by the forces that created the apparitions. They suggest that the location, the witnesses and the appearance of the apparitions were carefully chosen to create a mythos that would carry their "secret" to those who might be able to read it in the future.

My own reading of this is that the public was primed to put significance on anything reported on that predicted date, and that the children's sighting fit the bill. Lucia was already predisposed to seeing "angels" and she could well have responded to the climate of anticipation generated by the newspaper "predictions."

The book is valuable because it brings to light the machinations of the Jesuits who shaped and controlled the story in a manner that suited their religious viewpoint. The authors' revelations are based on their unprecedented access to the original records of the incident, which were kept secretly by the Catholic Church at the Sanctuary of Fatima.

The second part of the book covers the so-called three secrets of Fatima. The first secret contained a vision of hell and the lady predicted that the Great World War would end very soon and that another one would follow it under Pope Pius XI.

The second secret warned that if Russia was not converted to Christianity, "the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated." The third secret was finally revealed by the Vatican on June 26, 2000. This seemed to refer to the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II in 1981, but otherwise seemed disappointing for a secret that had been kept so long under lock and key.

Fernandes and D'Armada show that the secrets recalled by Lucia went through a steady process of multiplication. At first they were a few words and did not become two secrets until 1927 and the third secret was not revealed by her until 1941. They note that Lucia "gathered ideas and became inspired by certain models." She lived in a convent and was surrounded by Biblical texts and the teachings of the Catholic Church. Her visions were "the best thing that could have happened to the Jesuits."

They acknowledge that her recall of events was often inaccurate but they contend that her memory of events where she was the only participant were infallible. Certainly, it is easy to be infallible when there is no one else to dispute you!

The strength of this book is that it shows the context and beliefs of the period that conditioned the interpretation of the Fatima visions and how they were maintained and promoted through the production of the Fatima "secrets."

The weakness of the book is that the authors do not consider that their own ufological context and re-examination of the case is as proscriptive as that of the Jesuits'.

Instead of considering the psychological factors that conditioned the children and Lucia in adulthood, they prefer to speculate that there was an Operation Fatima by intelligences using spacecraft and holographic projectors. They say, "Through illusions and projections, mostly hidden within the full amplitude of the electromagnetic spectrum -- they appear to be able to control us -- and through us, our systems of belief." This could have come straight from the pages of a 1970s vintage John Keel book, but the "new ufology" of that period has since moved on.

Nessie Hunter Says Loch Ness Monster is "Not A Giant Eel"

A Nessie hunter believes he has uncovered the mystery of the Loch Ness Monster – and she has a lot in common with the Australian kangaroo.

Despite evidence to suggest Nessie is nothing more than a giant eel, one man still believes she exists, is reproducing and carrying her young like a kangaroo – and he is determined to hunt her down.

Self-proclaimed doctor of forensics, Vladi S. PeCan contacted Daily Star Online to say he proposes to "help catch, photograph and take DNA samples of Nessie."

"I can point out where, when, how she can be seen and how to attract her," he said. "I have studied her image and methods of reproduction and have worked out females have a bag for carrying the offspring on the abdomen."

The Nessie hunter added he has also figured out what equipment, facilities and top secret plans are needed to carry out a covert operation to find the mythical Scottish beast.

This includes "video equipment for three locations, and bait to lure the monster" alongside a team of specialists to work with.

He says he is determined for search for Nessie to become a "professional investigation" and by the end of the study should be able to report detailed findings.

The study will provide answers to "how many monsters live in the lake, their age, what they eat" as well as proving his theory female Nessies have a "bag on the abdomen for offspring".

Vladi added that he did not know how much money such an extensive investigation would cost, but is hopeful it can be achieved.

Aquatic animals are not known to carry offspring in pouches.

Marsupials such as kangaroos, wallabies, possums and koalas, native to Australasia are the only animals currently known to science which carry babies in pouches.

The Nessie hunter's announcement comes just months after scientists published some explosive findings about the Loch Ness Monster following a year-long study.

Sightings of the mythical dinosaur-like beast have baffled people for hundreds of years, but the results of the latest investigation proved once again to be a massive anticlimax.

Researchers from the University of Otago, in New Zealand, collected 250 water samples from the depths of the 227m deep loch.

They analysed the animal matter they found there: such as fur, feathers, skin, scales and poo.

Then in September it was revealed Nessie could be a massive eel.

Professor Neil Gemmell, who led the study, told a packed conference:" I don't think the plesiosaur idea holds up based on the data that we have obtained.

"There are 500 million different [gene] sequences that they have discovered.

“They’ve compared them to a whole lot of other living things."

Instead he suggested Nessie sightings are most likely the result of the fresh water loch's large eel population tricking day-trippers to the scenic loch.

Yet despite such evidence to the contrary it hasn't stopped Nessie hunters like Vladi believing the truth is still out there.

Fear of "Widows Ghost" Grips Thailand

Villagers in northeastern Thailand have again hung red shirts in front of their houses, believing it will ward off being attacked by the widow’s ghost. Following the deaths of 13 people in the past three months.

13 men aged 17-60 in Ban Tha Luang village in Phimai district of Nakhon Ratchasima have died. Local residents believe the ghost of a widow took their lives.

The most recent death was that of Boon-uan Baebphimai, 60, a villager in Ban Tha Luang said to be strong and healthy. He was found lying unconscious one day on a village road and died shortly afterwards.

The villagers also believe a red shirt hung in front of their houses could prevent members of their families from being attacked by the widows ghost.

The practice has been reported at several villages in the Northeast where a similar pattern of deaths occurred.

The Belief in ghosts in Thai culture is both popular and enduring. The Thai people are very superstitious and their beliefs in the supernatural have been passed down from generation to generation.

Benevolent spirits are primarily guardian spirits, they are supposed to assist and protect the living. While Malevolent spirits also cause trouble to people.

Its a general belief that if human beings behave badly and disrespectfully towards a good spirit, this ghost might turn malevolent. Making the distinction between good and evil spirits unclear at times.

Thai hang a red shirt outside their homes to repel the evil spirits. It also warns families with only one son they have a higher chance of a visit from the ghost.

In 2018, residents in the Thai city of Nakhon Ratchasima’s Phimai district, were told by a medium that the recent deaths of two men were caused by a "widow ghost."

Lamom Sermphimai, 62, who lives in Ban Sala village said that village residents asked the medium to conducted a rite at a village shrine to invite spirits to explain why the men had died.

Through the medium, spirits said it was the ghost of a widow who wanted to take the lives of four men in the village and that, as two had died, two other men would soon follow.

Fearing that the widow’s ghost would take the life of their family members, the villagers hung a red shirt in front of their homes believing it would drive away the ghost.

Some of the residents attached a note to the red shirt that stated: “There are no men in this house, just cats and dogs.”

According to Mrs Lamom, no other men have died in their sleep after red shirts were put up.
