Summary : "Alien" body, decomposing, with silvery skin, approx 36" - 48" tall was found by Mason residents under leaves in their yard.

The Lansing State Journal aalong with WILX and WLNS television stations, both in Lansing, initially reported that residents of Mason, MI uncovered a strange humanoid like body on their property as they raked leaves in the spring months of 1996. The body was slender with long arms and legs, a small head and to the best of my recall, large eyes. The body was reported to be 3.5 to 4 feet in lenght with silver skin that was deteriorating (presumably over the winter). The news sources reported that the remains had been taken to Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mi,for examination. Suspiciously, there was never again any mention of this unusual find in the newspaper, on TV or over the radio. It would seem that the media was instructed to drop the story, even though it was one having great public appeal and would draw large audiences. This certainly seems to have been a "hush" job.
