Hickson maintained until his death that he had been abducted and probed by extraterrestrials in 1973.

He had been fishing on a pier with Calvin Parker Jr. near Pascagoula, Mississippi when the men encountered a cigar-shaped UFO with blue lights that appeared above them. The abduction experience that happened next has been the topic of much controversy and ridicule, with the men being reportedly taken aboard the craft and examined before being let go.

"Charles Hickson, the Mississippi man who claimed he was abducted and probed by aliens while he was fishing with a friend in 1973 and never backed off the story despite the ridicule he endured, has died."

Richard Hall made a list of some 1973 Humanoid reports, some of which were robots or robot-like, and some just downright bizarre: TABLE 4.

Here's another website about the wave of 1973-74, which featured many UFO landings and physical trace cases, many UFOs tracked on radar and chased around by jets, at least five instances when people shot at UFOs or "occupants", reports that the military had started a couple of new UFO projects called Old New Moon and Blue Paper, and government agents all over place, sometimes reported to be showing witnesses books full of pictures or various types of UFOs and aliens and asking which ones they had seen. "The U.S. Air Force, the Department of Defense and the Federal Aviat... [More]

And this is the NICAP report on the 1973 UFO wave, which featured sightings from all over the world. I could not find any reports of "friendly" ETs here, but plenty that engaged in activities that could be considered hostile. Interestingly, the US military was also of DEFCON III alert in October and November 1973 due to the Arab-Israeli War at that time. January - February 1973; Cherokee County, S.C. Police in Cherokee County received so many UFO sighting reports that they stopped sending cars out to investigate. The sightings according to police have been in the hundreds. Th... [More]

What stands out in my mind about this incident is how both Hickson and Parker knew full well how their strange abduction story would sound to people and did not want any publicity about what happened because of fear of ridicule. They were terrified and felt compelled to report what happened to the authorities whom they thought they could trust to keep the matter confidential. They were not at all pleased when the sheriff leaked the story to the press. True perpetrators of hoaxes want all the publicity they can get. I truly believe something extremely unusual happened to those men that night.

We will never know whether or not this was fake. As much as I would prefer nothing else but to have the ability to fully invest belief into this, the possibility still exists that it was faked.

This has the earmarks of a true abduction. hoaxers generally are not shaken or /and terrified when reporting an abduction. the fact that the man died is not necessarily connected with the abduction, although it definitely a possibility, although extreme. most true abductees continue to be abducted throughout their lives and usually can function in society even living in fear of when it will occur again.
