Army officer’s hidden diary that has ‘codes’ could reveal truth about Roswell

A long-hidden diary kept by an army officer could contain ‘coded messages’ that unlock the secret of Roswell, it’s been claimed.

Major Jesse Marcel, an RAAF intelligence officer, was one of the first officials sent to the notorious crash site in New Mexico, 1947.

An army press officer soon shocked the world by revealing that Marcel had recovered a mysterious “flying disc” – sparking fears of extra terrestrials.

Headlines across the globe spoke of metallic-looking debris scattered across the New Mexico Debris.

The next day, the story changed – now Marcel had found a weather balloon, reporters were told.

Believers have investigated Roswell for more than 70 years, believing the truth is out there.

Many say the U.S. covered up a crashed flying saucer, as speculation over the original ‘disc’ has never stemmed.

Now, a new History Channel documentary could offer more insight. Marcel’s long-lost diary has been rediscovered by his surviving grandchildren.

Ben Smith, a former CIA operative and the show's lead investigator, told Live Science: “The government claimed they had recovered a UFO — they had a press release about it.

“No other government in the world has said 'We have a spacecraft,' and then the next day there's another press release that says, 'Never mind, it was just a weather balloon’.”

Marcel’s diary was kept at the time of the crash and could contain coded messages that he wrote at the time, Smith said.

Smith told DailyMail.com : “There are breaks in the journal that are not clear, but it could be a secret code.”

In fact, the officer himself revealed in an interview in 1997 that he believed the saucer was alien.

The New Mexico desert crash has been a talking point for truth-seekers. The debate was recently refuelled by the Navy’s acknowledgement of encounters with fast moving UFOs.

The Military declassified videos the year showing undefined objects searing through the sky.

Smith added: “It's the origin story of the UFO, the prospect of a government cover-up for alien contact.

"Science fiction already existed but things that passed to us through pop culture found their origins in government secrecy surrounding this strange sequence of events in 1947.

“It all starts in Roswell."
