causing deep

. Whilst swimming, Mrs. Darwin Johnson, 35, was assaulted by "furry clawed hands on the end of very strong, very thin, very long, discoloured arms" which grabbed Mrs. Johnson, causing deep cuts, and she was pulled under the water twice. http: www.mail-archive.com mythfolk@yahoogroups.com msg01379.html Other members of the swimming outing rescued her and the unearthly hands disappeared, although they had been seen by the entire party, who also saw strange objects in the sky as they fled the scene. It was reported to the local press at the time. A week later, upon looking at a sketch by Press artist Larry Hill of the creatures reported at Hopkinsville in Kentucky, a still distraught Mrs. Johnson commented "That's the little mofo that had a hold of me." http: www.mail-archive.com mythfolk@yahoogroups.com msg01385.html The witnesses, all of whom were local to the area, were at a loss to explain what had happened and claimed they would never go near the area again. Whilst Mrs. Johnson's encounter was treated more or less seriously, this incident caused a rash of "flying saucer" interest in Indiana, along with numerous sightings which were not taken as seriously. A large number of these were taken to be copycats, especially after the Hopkinsville incidents which had in the previous few days been widely publicized nationwide in the press. One such example was a report on August 26 by a group of teenagers who claimed to have seen ten glowing "little green men" cavorting the night before on the Lincoln Avenue High School athletic field of Evansville, whose description matched that of the "Hopkinsville Goblins".
