Thomas Reed is an award winning South Beach fashion photographer, and the founder of Miami Models, w/clients: Polo Black Label, Tommy Hilfiger, and Ralph Lauren. He held positions in upper management with companies, Honeywell and Entergy.
The historic UFO case of the Reed Family, was assigned a Vallee classification of “CE4” (close encounter of the 4th kind), with a Case Category of 3 (physical evidence). The case has many layers and is deeply entwined and remains one of a few CE4 cases to be mentioned within the walls of the United Nations. The history involves Marian Burrows, grandmother, Nancy Reed, mother, and the two brothers, Thom and Matthew. The evidence in this case would include a significant amount of radiation, and strong magnetic fields, and is one of a few to have been collected and documented by those in law enforcement.
The Reed encounters date back to June of 1954, with Marian and Nancy, while in a cabin at Moosehead Lake, Maine. The boys, Thom and Matthew had their first encounter, in September of 1966, while on their horse farm in Sheffield, Massachusetts. The second encounter on the Reed’s horse farm came the following year in the fall of 1967. This encounter involved the entire family. The family’s final encounter, and one that would cause them to sell their home and restaurant, the “Village Green”, and relocate, took place in September of 1969. Nancy, Marian, Thom and Matthew, were driving home following a horse show, at about 8:00 at night, when they observed what Marian referred to as a bright “floating strip mall” above the left side of the station wagon. What can only be described as some sort of energy running through the body was felt by the family before their car began to stall and coast to the right side of the road. Only the sounds of stones tapping under the fender walls of their car were heard, followed by a dead silence. A barometric change in pressure was felt before triggering a deafening eruption of katydids and crickets. The family has collectively been able to reconstruct and piece together much of that night in September of 1969 aboard the vessel. With that said, many have asked what the beings looked like, that were seen by the Reeds, and there has been a lot of speculation on the terminology. The best way to describe what was witnessed would be a genetically engineered or manufactured intelligent insect-type being with some human characteristics, such as hands, that would stand and vary from three to five feet in height.
Several of Thom’s childhood sketches from 1969, depicting what he witnessed first-hand involving his encounters, are displayed at the Roswell UFO Museum. It should be noted that the crafts that landed on the Reed’s property were also seen by numerous members of the community and their children. Thom was not the only child to draw renderings, as many of the children penciled what they had seen, which also hung next to Thom’s, beneath the chalk board in his fourth grade classroom.
By the 1980’s, Thom’s father, Attorney Howard Reed, PhD, was in local office and had met Attorney Robert Bletchman and several others with political ties and aspirations. On October 2, 1992, the Reed’s case would assist their personal attorney’s efforts, (Robert Bletchman) by adding credible and corroborated testimony, to include the Reeds’ statements on the barometric change in pressure, electromagnetic “vibe”, calming state, and the manipulation of gravity, which was voiced by Robert at the United Nations Symposium. The objective of the Symposium was to introduce substantiated cases to motivate the U.N. to reconsider 33/426. (33/426 references an establishment of an agency or a dept. of the U. N. for undertaking, coordinating and disseminating the results of research into unidentified flying objects.). This came 10 days before NASA began SETI’s Microwave Observing Project (MOP/HRMS).
What prompted the Reed case to resurface after several decades was the event in 2009, involving Matthew in Brownsburg, Indiana, which was investigated by those in law enforcement, as well as Aerospace groups. Officer White, a detective, with over 30 years law enforcement experience, worked the case, and reported it as “authentic encounters with an unknown powerful force”. Robert Bigelow, the founder of Bigelow Aerospace, had recently financed an organization and teams to investigate CE3 and CE4 cases, such as the Reed case. Additional organizations also researched the Reed case, such as the Star Team and smaller third party groups. All investigating personnel came to the same conclusion, and validated the radiation, magnetic anomalies, medical records, statements and testimony. In 2010, Thom passed his Polygraph test on his family’s UFO encounters which covered a broad spectrum of events dating back to 1966, with a score of over 99%, at the Department of Defense, Polygraph Institute, at Advanced Polygraph, which was administered by a 30 year veteran police officer.
Thomas comes from a grounded and well respected family in New England, and is the son of Dr. Howard Reed, a college professor and attorney, who also served the community on the Canaan Board of Selectmen. Howard was also strongly supported by Senator Christopher Dodd, in his run for office. In the fall of 2006, and soon after voicing his upcoming book project on the family’s experiences with vessels and other life forms, to include a compilation of sensitive material gathered over the years as well as referencing many of Robert Bletchman’s notes and research, Howard suffered an untimely death on the same day, October 2nd, 14 years after the United Nations Symposium on October 2nd, 1992.
The CDC, on sweeping Howard’s office, reported finding a vial containing the deadly virus in his air conditioning unit. The building was closed and remains closed to this day. Oct. 6th was then proclaimed a day of remembrance in Howard’s honor, by the City of Bridgeport, CT. A Ph.D. who released his test results regarding the Reed case after evaluating family members, on September 15, 2010, was also found dead on November 12th, 2010, just eight weeks later.
