ClarksonJames Clarkson is a career investigator with over 30 years’ experience in criminal investigation and in the mysterious world of UFOs. He is a retired police sergeant having worked as a detective sergeant, fatal accident team supervisor and a patrol supervisor. After retiring with 20 years’ service, he became a child abuse detective and now has a decade of service as a fraud investigator for a state agency. He brings these skills and a no-nonsense approach to bear on the mystery of UFOs.
Applying the same passion for solving mysteries to the world of High Strangeness, James Clarkson serves as the Washington State Director of MUFON and also as a member of MUFON’s STAR Team.

James has had a lifelong interest in UFO history, and he joined MUFON in 1986. He has lectured extensively throughout Washington State, at symposiums across the country and in Paris. He has been a guest on numerous radio shows. During a presentation in 1993 he met June Crain, a key corroborating witness to the reality of the Roswell UFO Crash and other military crash retrievals. She also provided key insights to early days of the ongoing UFO Cover-Up. June worked at Wright Patterson AFB between 1942 and 1952 in top secret laboratories. After becoming friends, in her last days, June Crain chose to reveal her life story to James. Her remarkable history is captured in his book TELL MY STORY – June Crain, the Air Force & UFOs.

Now in Roswell, James Clarkson presents the completed study of the Westport UFO Crash Retrieval Event from the SW Coast of Washington in 1979. The elements of this case are valuable for all students of crashed UFOs and covert military response. This investigation was enhanced by the number of highly credible witnesses to the crash and its aftermath. His newest work is titled Westport UFO Crash Retrieval Event – A Case Study.
