In the second half of hour one, Ruben Uriarte and Noe Torres spoke about the 1974 UFO case known as Mexico's Roswell. In January 2007, the two investigated the site of the incident in the Chihuahuan Desert, just south of the US border. A small civilian plane was said to crash into a silver disc-shaped object that had been picked up by radar. According to their sources, a group of Mexican soldiers died, possibly due to some kind of contamination at the crash site. Subsequently, the US sent in a team that reportedly exploded the deceased soldiers and crashed disc in order to "disinfect the area." Check out some images that ran in Uriarte & Torres' article for the July issue of UFO Magazine, such as the above sketch of the UFO.
