What everyone needs to remember is that this event and sister events occured at the end of the biggest UFO flap in United States UFO history and on the heels of freshly minted orders to the military to shoot those UFOs down... significant to note? The Flatwoods people didn't know about the Snitowski's who, in turn, didn't know about "Bashful Billy affair."
"BASHFUL BILLY" Alien of
60th Anniversary Incident
In the aftermath of the terrifying "Flatwoods Monster" and "Frametown Monster" incidents occurring in
on September 12th and 13th in 1952, yet another alien "Monster" was said to have been sighted in Braxton
County on West
September 15, 1952.
This incident occurred near
in the Vineyard Hills Housing Development about five miles from the famous
Oglebay Park Resort. Only three days earlier, during the Wheeling September 12, 1952 UFO flap at Flatwoods, a damaged UFO had gone
down in the
area. Not as well-known as the two previous Oglebay Park close encounters recently recounted, this
mysterious "Monster" incident also reflects the incidence of being
quickly covered-up by officials. Braxton

1952, an article on the front page of the Wheeling Intelligencer
reported, "'Monster' From Outer Space Arrives Here Via Saucer."
The opening stated, "'Bashful Billy,'" the monster from outer space
and southern West Virginia, arrived in Wheeling by flying saucer yesterday and
promptly set tongues wagging and telephones burning." Notice the reflex ridicule in the article above.
The article also stated, "One call to the Intelligencer offices asked if it was true that the horribly burned body of a woman was found at Vineyard Hills and that a policeman was burned mysteriously about the arm... Callers also reported that an unpleasant odor was produced by the monster." Similar bells seem decidedly rung between this and the previous two affairs at Flatwoods and Frametown.
The Fairmont Times article of
September 16, 1952, "Green-Eyed Monster Again
Reported on Loose in state," reported that "Bashful Billy" was a
"10-foot tall monster from another world" and was said to be "gas-breathing."
Was the "body of a horribly burned woman" really found by the
locals on the
pandemonium that was Monday in Vineyard Hills?
Or, was this the cover story to hide the truth of a horribly burned
alien body found there after being dropped off from a damaged UFO three days
earlier during the September 12 flap? Curious
and more curious, still. Wheeling
The Wheeling Intelligencer continued to follow this "Monster" story. On
September 17, 1952,
it reported yet two more sightings of another monster called a "roving
monster." These sightings occurred on Tuesday September 16, 1952 in nearby .
One caller contacted the Ohio newspaper
and reported that, "his grandchildren were 'almost scared to death' by
something they had seen." Another Wheeling
caller reported, "It was 10-15 feet tall and had a green body and red
head." More familiar bells! Ohio
Was this "roving monster" actually another alien looking for the ostensibly stranded alien found dead already by the
locals the day before? What was
happening "really," in the center of Wheeling ? West
Read the entire story, all the accompanying articles regarding these amazing incidents, and other documented incidents provoking hapless locals into a terrified frenzy... in Frank Feschino's new book, "The Braxton County Monster-REVISED EDITION-The Cover-up of the Flatwoods Monster Revealed." This is real.
