Retired United States Air Force Special Agent Richard Doty claimed that aliens measuring approximately 120 cm tall were recovered from the spacecraft after it crashed at Roswell in 1947 and were still alive.
The 1947 Roswell UFO incident is considered one of the widely recognized UFO incidents in the history of flying saucer research. Many people still believe it was the alien craft that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico but the US government covered up the whole incident by calling it a military program (Project Mogul).

At that time he used to look for all kinds of rumors and the spread of false information about UFO and extraterrestrial related news.
According to him, he tried everything possible to keep civilians from the Roswell accident away.
But in 2017, Richard gave an interview during the Netflix series Unacknowledged and admitted that the UFO crashed in Roswell in 1947.

He also said: “The ship was egg-shaped. It was not saucer shaped and the inside had no levers but creatures were also found.” He said there were creatures about 120 cm tall on the spacecraft. They had a human appearance.
Richard claimed that the aliens were injured in the accident and were taken to Kirkland Air Force Base. Since then no one has seen them and no one knows about their future fate.
Also, in May 2001, Richard broke his silence about his role at Kirtland Air Force Base during the 1990s. He testified at the National Press Club in Washington DC, saying he was involved in the alien investigations.
He also revealed in the 2017 series that he had been a counterintelligence officer at the base. Richard also said that he had studied the planned visit of extraterrestrials to Earth.
However Richard claimed that Unacknowledged series writer Mark Pilkington wrongly portrayed his role in the film.
