In early September 2021 I was contacted by a lady named Justine via our Facebook community page. She informed me that she had experienced a number of things over the years, but due to recent experiences she wanted to speak with someone in depth about what was taking place. In the following days we arranged numerous Facebook Messenger video calls to go over events.


One early memory Justine has is of greatly panicking when she was taken to get her immunity injections. She must have only been 3-4 years old at the time. She was extremely frightened, especially regarding the way in which she was being held down. She remembers fighting back against things to the point that she actually kicked one of the nurses!

Abductees often have a phobia towards needles or doctors because it reminds them of things that have happened to them during their contact experiences. Although it is common for children (and sometimes adults) to be frightened of injections, Justine wonders if her extreme reaction towards the situation was as a result of childhood abductions she cannot currently recollect.

Lit UFO Sighting

In her childhood Justine used to live in Santa Rosa, California. In 1995 or 1996 when she was 10-11 years old she would sometimes go round to her friend Sarah’s flat after school to play for a while. Sarah lived on the 2nd or 3rd floor of Creekside Apartment, 5199 Old Redwood Highway. She used to get picked up by her mother around 7pm after she finished work.

One evening in the winter she was round at the flat. She and Sarah stepped out onto the balcony around 6-7pm. It was a clear evening. Due to the time of year it was already fully dark. In the distance Justine noticed an object with a cluster of red lights. The object was at least several miles away from their position, too distant to see its shape or size, although it must have been quite big to have been seen that far away. She is unsure of what compass direction it was situated in.

The girls watched the object for 1-2 minutes as it hovered motionless in the sky. Then without warning it suddenly shot away to the left. Justine says that the speed was incredible and within a couple of seconds it had completely vanished from sight!

The girls didn’t tell their families about what they’d seen. As the sighting was quite distant and did not appear to have involved direct interaction it is unknown whether this incident has anything to do with Justine’s later experiences or not.

Shadow Beings

At age 21-22 Justine lived in a house in the area of Rincon Valley with her boyfriend Mark. He used to play a band at the time. One day he and Justine visited Live Musicians Co-op music studio on Piper Road to make a recording. Justine says that these days it has been renovated and looks nice but back then it was more run down and had a really bad vibe to it.

That night, and for two consecutive nights they were plagued by dark shadowy humanoid forms which would appear in their bedroom. These figures were seen by both of them and were absolutely terrifying. Justine says when they appeared she and Mark would hide under the covers, and when they looked again the entities would be gone. They would never appear during the daytime, only after dark in their room.

Justine was convinced that they had brought back an evil presence from the music studio. Mark's mother was Christian and she decided she would try to cleanse the house by playing hours of Christian music. She set up a playlist and went out for the day. When she returned home she says it felt extremely different, and the shadowy figures no longer appeared.

These entities are commonly referred to as “shadow beings” and have often been reported by contactees. Due to this fact there appears to be a link with contact, although exactly what this link is has not yet been determined.


By 2016, at the age of 31, Justine had moved to Nottingham in the UK and lived in a house on Denmark Grove.

On 21st April she and Tom, her partner at the time, went to bed at 9.30pm. Their pet cat Brian was also in the room on the dresser. A while after she had dropped off she suddenly woke up for an unknown reason.

It was quite dark in the room but there was some light coming from a nearby street light through the window. She looked across the bedroom to the door on the far left side of the room. Suddenly three Grey beings faded in over the space of a couple of seconds! They were positioned around the left and base of the bed in a row.

The beings were about 3 and a half feet tall and completely unclothed. They had grey coloured skin and smooth slender bodies with no bone structure or genitalia visible. Their heads were pear-shaped with large black almond shaped eyes, small nostrils and thin slits for mouths.

Justine then realised she could not move or shout out, she could only move her eyes. Tom lay asleep next to her and did not stir. She glanced over at the clock on the bedside table and found it was 10.30pm an hour after they had gone to bed. She was not particularly frightened of the beings, she was more upset by the fact that she could not move.

She then heard a voice inside her mind, and realised this was coming from the second being who was standing at the far left corner of the bed. The voice sounded male. There was no particular emotion sensed in it. It said “You went to bed early tonight” in a very matter-of-fact way.

At the same time Justine realised the being on the left had turned and approached the dresser. The cat was standing up on the dresser and did not appear to be paralyzed. The Grey being was touching the cat on its chin. The cat did not appear to be agitated by this and was not making any sound.

A moment later Justine instantly blacked out. When she came round it was morning time and she was waking up like normal. She says that she felt really unusual. She felt empty inside, like a hollow shell. She immediately recollected what had happened during the night. She asked Tom “Do you remember hearing anything last night?” He responded saying “No, why?” Justine explained what had happened and he sat there giving her an odd look.

She then remembered what had happened with the cat. She got out of bed and searched the house for him, finding him in the living room. When she checked his chin she found a round hole in the centre of his chin. There was no blood surrounding it. She and Tom searched the house to see if they could find anything which was could have been responsible for the injury but there was nothing. Justine was convinced that the Grey had done this to him.

Later in the morning they took the cat to the vets. The vet confirmed that it was a wound but had no idea what could have caused it. Justine did not tell him about what she remembered from the night, as she felt sure he would not believe her. He gave her a saline solution to apply, and over the next few days the wound slowly healed up. The cat did not act abnormally in any way. Sadly the vet did not give Justine any written documentation confirming the presence of the wound or his assessment of it.

Justine enjoys painting pictures which she sometimes sells online. Several days after the incident she decided to paint a picture of some beings and craft inspired by what had happened to her:

She used some pre-done stencils so they didn’t look exactly as she’d remembered. She also painted them in white paint as she had no grey. The craft she included in the picture were standard UFO stencils and not based on any recollected memories.

It is likely that after she blacked out Justine, and potentially her partner too, were abducted. The empty feeling that she experienced the following day is a sensation I have had described before by other contactees, and suggests that more may have taken place. It also seems probable that the Grey near the dresser performed a procedure of some kind on the cat’s chin resulting in the wound. I have investigated a number of cases where they have done similar things to people, and also dealt with cases where pets have been examined or mutilated.

Light Under The Door

By 2017 Justine had moved to a house on Lindley Terrace. On the night of 30th July she recalls seeing a light on the landing coming under the bedroom door. She is unsure whether she was lying in bed and had not dropped off or whether she awoke during the night and saw it. She was certain that the landing light had been switched off and this was more of a white coloured light rather than the usual yellowish glow.

In the morning she awoke with the familiar feeling of emptiness she had experienced the previous year. She was convinced that something else had occurred.

Later in the day she sent her friend a text message talking about how she felt. Justine managed to retrieve this message for inclusion in the report:
