Woman claims to have found an 'alien artifact'

The object reportedly matches a similar item that CSM James Norton allegedly found at a UFO crash site.
This story comes courtesy of paranormal investigator Paul Dale Roberts of HPI Paranormal in Sacaramento who recently received a call from a woman named Stephanie Fuller.

She claimed that her fiance - a maintenance worker at an apartment block - had discovered a very strange object while cleaning up the home of a WWII veteran who had recently died.

The man had been a compulsive hoarder and it is unclear how he had obtained the object.

After researching the artifact, Fuller came across the story of Command Sergeant Major James Norton who in 1977 had a very strange encounter with a UFO at Fort Benning, Georgia.

On September 14th of that year, a group of men had been engaged in a live fire training exercise when a number of orbs appeared in the sky followed by a large triangular-shaped craft.

Shortly afterwards, many of the soldiers became ill and reported periods of missing time.

According to the report, the object, whatever it was, had seemingly crash-landed in the vicinity and Norton was able to surreptitiously retrieve a small piece of it.

The metal fragment was said to be adorned with strange symbols and exhibited peculiar properties.

Norton later posted a photograph online before burying the artifact on his property for safe-keeping.
It was this photograph that Fuller would later match to the object that was found in the veteran's flat.

Ultimately, it's difficult to know what to make of this story as there's no way to corroborate Norton or Fuller's claims and unless tests can be conducted on the metal, its origins cannot be proven either.

As things stand, it makes for interesting reading, but it's authenticity is open to interpretation.

You can view an article about Norton's 1977 encounter - here.

A larger image of the artifact he found can be viewed - here, and Fuller's - here.


Update: It turns out that the artifact in the photographs bears more than a passing resemblance to an alien artifact prop from Steven Spielberg's 2002 science-fiction miniseries 'Taken'.

You can check out a photograph of the prop - here. Look familiar ?

Big thanks to our forum members for getting to the bottom of this one.

I don't really want to open this can of worms again but I recommend more focus on the cases and less on the personalities involved or those of your perceived 'opponents'. Oh and not meaning to be a hypocrite but these serious experts, what are their credentials exactly? There are a select few educated and qualified experts who support the whole ET thing but the vast majority don't make the grade. I'm afraid chiropodists fall in the latter category. Playing devil's advocate - if Leir is correct, why is this not a bigger thing? And please don't say vast top to bottom conspiracy involving all bra... [More]

As I stated before you have no evidence just a strong desire to fall for ludicrous claims. Claiming "serious experts" is just an appeal to authority and avoids discussing the pathetic evidence and horrible mistakes made. The evidence is clear. Nothing Leir found appears to be anything other than normal debris.   Have you ever consider discussing the evidence? There is always a first time for everything.

You are doing here with this case the same thing you do in most cases IE: alien mummy hoax fraud thread,  you claimed i made up stuff about you, nope the ridiculous stuff you are posting in this thread shows how you think, it wasnt me making up anything, thank you for proving my point. If you have proof leir was more that a foot doc and his biased tests were not flawed  but rather colabarated by other labs please do post it.

The picture of Fuller's reminds me of one of those knife handles that has the holes in it, looks like someone twisted one of those and engraved little symbols.

I think Not Your Huckleberry got it one, the artifact from the tv series Taken. Do a google search Roswell artifact in the TV series Taken.

Well, that's a little embarrassing.. Good spot guys, unless the aliens have moved into the knock off movie prop business I think that says all there is to say..

Okay, okay ( said in best joe pesci voice ) Norton really did have the real alien whats it, he did bury it, and that claptrap TV show copied it, and a fan left his mother's basement to hit a comicon where he grabbed a prop from that series, he lost the prop on the way home when he thought he saw a Pokemon run past his vespa knock off, and ran into a curb, Then the lady of this thread found it and knew it just had to be alien...yep that's what happened you know it I know it.

Just wanted to say good work finding that prop photograph - I'd say that's a perfect match to the images of Fuller's artifact. I've updated the original story to reflect these latest findings.

We used to have a pair of  old nut crackers where they been used over the course of 90 yrs or so ( they belonged to my grandmother and probably her mother) the handles had worn leaving an odd hieroglyph kind a pattern ..... wonder if we still got them I could have my very own alien junk .
