UFO researcher to speak at Rio Rancho’s conference

By KRQE News 13

RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – Who said Roswell has the market cornered on UFOs? Rio Rancho will host the first New Mexico UFO Conference on Saturday from 1:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at the Sabana Grande Recreation Center. It will feature five speakers, including one Rio Rancho man who has an extensive collection of evidence on UFO reports including everything from declassified military reports to audio clips of air traffic control communications.
David Marler said he has researched UFOs for nearly 25 years. In his garage alone, he has 14 filing cabinets full of audio files, government files and newspaper clippings that date back to 1897.
“I don’t know what these things are, but based on almost 25 years of active investigation, there is enough smoke to indicate that there’s some fire,” Marler said.
In digging through all the headlines and images, Marler said many reports over the last 20 to 30 years describe triangular UFOs not the stereotypical “flying saucer.” At the conference Saturday, he said he plans to present his evidence and leave it up to the audience to decide what it all means.
“Whether you relegate UFOs to fact, fiction or folklore, I always come down to the simple premise, it’s part of our history,” Marler said.
He said, despite many nights camping outside, searching for UFOs, he has never spotted one himself.
