On episode 244 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we take a look back at the extraordinary and tragic case of police officer, George Wheeler. After encountering a massive UFO one evening in 1976 in Elmwood, Wisconsin, he claimed to have been hit by a beam of light that forced him to the ground. Only six months after the encounter, Wheeler would be dead. There were several other witnesses to different aspects that night as well, only bolstering this incredible event. But what makes this case even more compelling is that many other UFO reports had come in prior to and after the Wheeler incident all throughout Elmwood, Wisconsin. What was it about this midwestern town, and did whatever happen that night cause the untimely death of George Wheeler?
