Is the 1957 Antonio Villas Boas "abduction" still grist for discussion?

(Graphic from: http://arquivoufo.com.br/2012/02/23/caso-villas-boas-o-brasileiro-abduzido-por-extraterrestres/)

Bosco Nedelcovic was a Yugoslav émigré who worked at The U.S. Department of Defense [DoD] as an AID worker in South America.

He actually was a C.I.A. agent, as I found out from a few postings at UFO UpDates in 2005.

Bosco is the fellow who told me in phone interviews during the 1970s that the 1957 Antonio Villas Boas “event” near São Francisco de Sales [Brazil] was actually a DoD/CIA created experiment. [He didn’t refer to it as a military “psyop” however.)

Nick Redfern has the full tale in his book Contactees.

Here is the Villas Boas case as Wikipedia has it:

It seems that Bosco got into some kind of trouble involving children as part of his CIA endeavors.

(I was contacted by a former FBI agent/lawyer in 2005 about something to do with Bosco but I was in hospital at the time and didn’t get the calls or any further information about what the FBI/lawyer needed or wanted.)

Bosco came into my sphere, I believe, from newspaper articles telling readers of my funding of various enterprises, UFO research among them.

Bosco was looking for money to start a compound for “societal outsiders” I think; his construct was called “Basic Livelihood.”

(This may have been the “business” that got him into trouble with authorities.)

I have lots of communications from him, but here is a postal card telling me he was in California, showing me a possible place to start his “Livelihood” operation. (Why was he in California?)
The most important thing about my contacts with Bosco was his “disclosure” that the Villas Boas “abduction” was a military experiment. He also provided information about other CIA experiments in England, the Scoriton tale and others. [See Redfern’s book.]

Our attempt to find out if his Villas Boas story had merit is here:

And my “friend” Philip Coppens [deceased] dealt with the issue here:

The Villas Boas “abduction” remains questionable for many, as one can see from the colloquies at Mac Tonnies one-time blog (which you can find via a Google search).

UFOs may be a mystery, one clouded by interference, perhaps, of government agencies.



  • You are aware, I expect, that c. 1960 a certain Dr Leon Davidson once seriously propounded the idea that Adamski's contacts were all set up by the CIA? He too had worked in the intelligence services and knew the tricks of the trade. It sounded reasonable to begin with, then gradually holes appeared, critics got at him and Davidson faded from public view. I doubt that anyone would take his thesis seriously now. Probably the same applies to Bosco Nedelcovic, even though an abduction is quite different to a contact.

  • CDA:

    I was incapacitated when the UFO UpDates material on Nedelcovic was online and discussed so I missed the import of his alleged crime.

    But when we checked, we found he did work for the DoD and was in Brazil during the time-frame.

    Nick has made much of government psy-ops, with documentation, so I'm not discounting Nedelcovic's claims out of hand.

    Also, I can accept that Adamski was duped by the CIA or other government agency, and used for some nefarious reason(s).

    Davidson and I communicated much in the 70s and I would not throw his claims out the window either.

    As a former John Birch Section Leader, I can't shake my conspiracy leanings. After all, I did a radio show in Detroit that was bent that way, even getting me in hot water with the FBI for a broadcast the Wednesday before JFK was killed; a radio show asking who would take over the Presidency if JFK were assassinated.

    So, I'm immersed in goofy conspiracist ramblings and find them hard to shake.

    (And you know I believe that Forrestal was thrown out his hospital window.)

  • Interesting, Rich, but who was the female CIA agent with the red pubic hair? Yikes. And I thought that my UFO theories were "goofy." On the other hand, I also believe that Forrestal had help getting out of that window. Study UFOs long enough and your brain rots and you lose all of your friends(who think that you are nuts).

  • Coincidentally, I wrote an article a few days ago that should be online early this coming week, and which makes a brief reference to Nedelcovic.

    By Blogger Nick Redfern, at Sunday, January 24, 2016  

  • I may be wrong but I understand that Nedelcovic worked as an interpreter or translator?

    What special technical capabilities or military training did this man then have that made him a necessary asset to such a military chopper abduction group? In his (sparse) biographical data and background I can't find anything that warrants a need for his presence in such a hypothetical group. Let alone to be let in on the details of this type of mission - if they occurred at all.

    I think Carlos Allende found himself a very good friend.

    We verified he was a DoD/AID staffer and his CIA credentials were discovered by others.

  • Rick:

    He may have been employed by any alphabet agency back then as thousands of US citizens were back then, but were his 'credentials' and 'skills, training and specialisms' of such nature that they would have put him on board a supposed chopper with a highly specialized military crew with exotic technology of which we never heard from again, going about deeply classified objectives in Latin america?

    By Blogger theo paijmans, at Thursday, February 04, 2016  

  • Apparently they did, Theo.

    He was a CIA agent with useful credentials for a Latin America experiment it seems.

    You are basing your doubt(s) on what?
