Injuries Caused By UFO Claim Woman's Life
From Peter Gersten <UFOLAWYER1@aol.com>
Dear CAUS Members:
In 1981 I represented three People in a lawsuit against the United
States Government for injuries that resulted from their contact with
an unusual aerial object. Betty Cash, Vicky Landrum and Colby
Landrum are the only three People to ever sue our government for
injuries from a UFO. On the eighteenth anniversary of her
encounter, Betty Cash died.
Betty Cash was a warrior and heroine. She fought the US
government and, even in defeat, showed a spirit and tenacity that will
now be her epitaph. CAUS and I pay tribute to a very brave
lady...and a victim of this government's callousness to the rights of
the individual. The following is the announcement of her death:
MUTUAL UFO NETWORK 103 OLDTOWN RD. SEGUIN, TX
December 30, 1998
For Immediate Release:
INJURIES CAUSED BY UFO CLAIMS WOMAN'S LIFE
Betty Cash, one of three people injured in a UFO close encounter
near Huffman, Texas, on December 29, 1980, died on the 18th
anniversary of the event, in Birmingham, Alabama. She had been in
poor health ever since the encounter. At the time of the event, Mrs.
Cash operated her own businesses near Dayton, Texas.
Betty Cash, along with Vickie Landrum and grandson Colby
Landrum, encountered a huge UFO accompanied by military
helicopters on a dark road in the east Texas Piney Woods. They
were exposed to radiation from the object, which caused extreme
medical problems such as burns, eye damage, hair loss, diarrhea, and
vomiting. Although they and others observed a large number of
military helicopters along with the UFO, the U.S. Government
refused to acknowledge the event or assist them in any way.
After the encounter, Betty Cash was hospitalized and treated for
burns and the other maladies. The extent of the injuries was so great,
she was forced to close her businesses and never worked again. He
life became a series of hospital stays, many of them in intensive care.
Eventually, she developed cancer, which was successfully treated. In
November 1998, Mrs. Cash suffered a stroke. On December 29,
during her recovery, an unusual turn of events claimed her life.
Mrs. Cash was a hero in the fight against government UFO
cover-ups and brought hope to other victims of UFO incidents. She
was devoted to family and friends and never allowed her illness to
prevent her from helping others to cope with the trauma of UFO
For further information, contact John Schuessler, MUFON's Deputy
Director of Administration, and primary investigator of Mrs. Cash's
UFO incident, at (303) 948-6224, FAX (303) 948-6225, or e-mail at:
Betty Cash will be missed...but never forgotten.
