Harry Turner Incident

Harry Turner Incident

Date: August 28, 1979

Location: Winchester to Fredericksburg, VA

Long haul truck driver, Harry Turner, awoke with a start in his truck in a parking lot. The only problem was, he had no memory of the journey he had taken.

He sat thinking deeply when he noticed his handgun beside him, as were the empty shells of all eight rounds. That sparked his mind and suddenly the episode came flooding back into his brain.

He had been traveling on the highway from Winchester to Fredericksburg, Virginia. Alone on the road, a strange bright light rapidly came towards his truck.

The next thing it seemed that the truck had become enveloped in the strange white light. The steering now no longer under Turners control, Harry sat in his seat, contemplating his next move.

The door to the truck cabin suddenly flew open, and an unpleasant but strong sensation pressed against Turner’s shoulder. As if someone, or something, was pushing and holding him in place in his seat.

At this point, he raised his handgun and fired all eight rounds housed in it. The pressing on his shoulder let up. By this time, consumed by fear and confusion, he lost consciousness.

The next thing he knew, he awoke in the warehouse parking lot. His wristwatch stated it was just after 11:00 p.m., however, a clock on the warehouse wall indicated the time was 3:00 a.m. Examination of his truck would yield interesting finds also. Despite having just completed an 80 mile trip, his odometer only registered that he had traveled 17 miles.

Following the incident, Turner began to have stranger and more fascinating experiences.

As he lay in his bed one night staring at the ceiling, he suddenly realized he was looking through it. He could see the night sky and the stars that filled it. A little more unnerving, when he looked at his wife one evening as she slept beside him, he could see her skeleton and internal organs. It was as if her skin were translucent, or as if he had X-Ray vision.

Turner became convinced that this ability was somehow connected to the experience on the highway. What’s more, as time went on, further memories of the ordeal would come back to him. For reasons he had no explanation for, he became aware of a star system by the name of Alpha Centauri. Other abductees have made similar mention of this part of the universe.

His captors dressed in white, very much like doctors. Even more bizarre, was that they appeared to have numbers written on their heads. Convinced he and his truck had entered an inter dimension portal, he would refer them as Ultra Terrestrials, when speaking.

Ultimately, however, Turner became increasingly withdrawn, suffering from strange behavior, and suicidal thoughts. Animals also sometimes acted very bizarrely when he would approach them. At one point, in pursuit of one of the creatures, he became the focal point of a cross state police chase.

It is believed that he hase since passed away.

There is very little else written about Turner. Some investigators find this strange, particularly given his brash public claims. Combined with the fact that he is a former Navy serviceman, but all of his records had vanished as if he was never born. More than an eyebrow or two will raise the possibility of government involvement to one level or another.
