All comments and rebuttals welcome. directly invites "Dr.Reed", Jaime Maussan, or anyone else associated with "Dr.Reed" to comment on this story. [ Editors's Note: While some individuals meagerly and sloppily investigated this case and have had the gall to actually attempt to take the credit for it, including exposing the true identity of the now infamous "Dr.Reed", was the only website to have exposed this hoax and was the first and only to do any in-depth investigation. Period. I have personally been investigating this case since 1998 and exposed the true identity of 'Dr.Reed' before a worldwide radio audience on the Jeff Rense program on 02-MAY-2002. I provided exclusive photos, documents, and first hand witness testimony where others completely failed. was the first and only to completely blow the lid off this bogus caper. Ignore the noise and chat of the wanna be investigators out there trying to ride on the coattails of Accept no substitutes!]


It all started back on November 11, 1998 when a man claiming to be Dr. Jonathan Reed took center stage on the late night radio program Coast To Coast AM with Art Bell. During this program, Reed, accompanied by a man calling himself Robert Raith, told of an October 15, 1996 encounter that was alleged to have taken place in a Washington State forest. Reed said he killed an alien in the woods after the alien had disintegrated his dog. Reed claimed to have taken video and photos of the alien and a UFO (referred to as an "obelisk"). Of course, the story didn't simply end there.

Reed said he took the alien home, stored it in a freezer and was subsequently harassed by government agents that murdered a friend of his and then attempted to kill Reed. Later, the alien comes back to life and the government thugs wipe Reed's identity from the face of the planet, ransack his home and Dr.Reed is forced to live underground aided by an unknown group called "The Alliance" that appears to be protecting him from another group called "The Dark Side" ( For more details, please see the links available here). Reed later claimed to have recovered an alien device that attaches to the wrist and transports the user to another dimension.

Dr. Reed, who claimed to be a Psychologist with a Ph.D, published and sold a book about his alleged alien encounter, has produced and sold presentation videos, earned himself seven appearances on Coast To Coast AM with Art Bell, and garnered three invitations to appear at the International UFO Congress, and appeared on Latin America's most popular television program Otro Rollo.

In the process of all this, a few so-called UFO investigators/researchers claimed to have thoroughly investigated Dr.Reed and his associates. These same investigators have stated that the case is genuine and Dr. Reed is a real doctor. Along with this, some of these people have also stated that Reed has "irrefutable" evidence that is extraterrestrial in origin. Others chose to publicly voice their opinion based on little more than perhaps meeting Dr. Reed and/or viewing Dr. Reed's photo and video evidence. Here's what some of these folks had to say:

iariaDaniel Iaria: "It is becoming almost ridiculous that anyone would still claim that Dr Reed is not telling the absolute truth. We have put forth so much evidence in support of this case (audio, photographic, video and now firsthand witness testimony) that only people in complete denial or those that have an agenda to try to suppress this information could possibly continue to refute it."

"There are still a few insidious antagonists out there who don't want anyone to believe that Dr Reed's case is being taken seriously by anyone of any real import. However, with our most recent trip to Mexico City, there can no longer be any doubt that this case is not only being taken seriously, but it is also being heralded as the most important case to ever surface in this realm."

International UFO Congress (promo): "The Dr. Jonathan Reed case has been one of the most widely challenged and debated cases in UFO history. This presentation by 3 reputable researchers will proffer a staggering amount of hard facts and substantive evidence in support of the case, including video testimony of people who knew Dr. Reed in his life and professional field." Art Bell: "Dr Reed, your critics are frantic to disprove this case."


Christopher Montgomery: "In light of research that I have done which indicates that there is an ultradimensional nature to the UFO enigma, it is my opinion that this case has all of the earmarks of a genuine UFO event."..."The glare present in the foreground of the "Obelisk," is evidence that this object is generating its own luminescence, another characteristic of a genuine UFO."

Donald M. Ware: "I donít know why anyone would want to make up a story like this. I see some lessons for us here. Apparently a human nearly killed an alien over a dog."

jaimemausJaime Maussan: "We also have the interview with Mr. Harold Chacon. We cannot show his face, as we could not show the face of Mrs. Betty. But this Mr. Harold Chacon, has allowed us to use his name. And this interview is one of the most extraordinary pieces of evidence, more important than I have known in the investigation of the phenomenon." "I just ask that you listen to his (Jonathan Reed) story. I assure you that if I find out it's untrue that I will be the first one to come out on television and say it's a hoax, even if my credibility is affected."

Bob Travers (UFO conference promoter): "Jonathan presented more than enough hard evidence at the International UFO Congress in March 2000 that is [irrefutable.]"

Joe Dundovic (Minnesota MUFON): "In my opinion the strongest evidence for Dr. Reed's veracity is the tremendous effort expended by the governmental agents to destroy his identity and reputation."

Ken Nagele (MUFON, Orange County): "After talking to him [Reed] and his three companions whom I had met just prior to the meeting, I found no reason to question their integrity."


Shawn Atlanti (MUFON Investigator, San Diego UFO Society): "I have been researching UFO/ET Phenomenon for over twenty-years and after meeting with Dr. Reed, hearing his staggering story and after seeing the alien photographs and video evidence for myself, truly it is one of the most fascinating and credible contact events that I have ever experienced." "I still do believe in and support the Jonathan Reed story, and spent some time with him at the Laughlin Conference last month, and listened to some of his latest evidence he has released, along with other updates."

T. Kardos (MUFON, Orange County): "Criticism of this case notwithstanding, I believe after personally meeting with Dr. Reed and his witnesses, that their testimony is real, corroborative amongst the witnesses, and consistent with the presented photographic and video evidence. The presented details on the analyses of the hard evidence (tissue samples, Link artifact and video interference near the Obelisk) appear to be scientifically plausible to me, based on my biomedical engineering background."

dan mcevoy head shotNow remember one thing, some of these people claim Dr. Reed is telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Some are self-proclaimed experienced UFO investigators and some of them are stating that they have conducted a thorough investigation into Dr. Jonathan Reed's background and he is indeed who he claims to be. One investigator, Dan McEvoy (pictured left), even claimed to have visited Dr. Reed's former universities, university colleagues, students, professors, relatives - in all interviewing 30 alleged witnesses who told him who Dr. Reed was.

Who would question all of these people based on what they've told you? After all, these are investigators claiming to have several years of investigative experience under their belts, people claiming to have exhausted every single lead in this case. Some of these investigators claim Dr.Reed's alien evidence has been scientifically analyzed and found to be extraterrestrial in origin. Why shouldn't we believe them? Here's why - because, in spite of all the professional, thorough and competent investigative efforts alleged by these so-called investigators and researchers, there is one huge problem with what they're reporting to you: The man claiming to be Dr. Jonathan Reed in this case is a liar...
