Missippi marks historic 1973 alien abduction site

by Amanda Push

Alien abductions may not play as vital a role in the shaping of our country such as, say, the Civil Rights Movement and women’s suffrage, but we here at DGO Mag would like to think it plays some type of important part.

Apparently, so does Mississippi. On June 22, the city of Pascagoula placed a historical marker near a river at Lighthouse Park where, in 1973, two men claimed they were abducted by aliens, according to the Associated Press.

As the story goes, the two men, Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker, were hanging out on the shores of the Pascagoula River when they said aliens abducted them. The extraterrestrials looked them over for who knows what for about 30 minutes before releasing them.

Afterward, the two reported their experience to law enforcement and were checked out at a hospital, according to AP. However, while the story went what we refer to today as viral, many doubted the tale.

Parker went on to publish a book, “Pascagoula – The Closest Encounter: My Story,” in 2018; unfortunately, Hickson died in 2011 and did not live to see the publication.
