Crop Circles and Confiscated Computers
That's the title of a new Mysterious Universe article from me, on a "stranger than fiction" saga that occurred back in 2000.
Surreal barely begins to describe it.
And here's how it starts...
"In the latter part of 2000 a Welshman named Matthew Williams was arrested by the British Police Force for causing criminal damage to a field in Wiltshire, England. He admitted creating – under cover of darkness – a highly elaborate Crop Circle of the type that many researchers of the phenomenon assert cannot be made by human hands. Well, yes, actually, they can. And they are.
"Since then, Matt has been variously described as a Crop Circle hoaxer, an outright liar, a charlatan, and most absurd of all, a 'government agent' dispensing disinformation, specifically to muddy the waters concerning who or what is responsible for the Crop Circle mystery. The real story is far stranger."
