Kerry is the sister of Darren, a contactee whose case I looked into last year and which you can read about elsewhere on this site (West Bromwich Contact Case). Darren had told Kerry about his own experiences, but up until early 2011 she had never had any ET-related experiences herself, at least to her knowledge. Contact is often experienced by multiple individuals from the same family line, so it is unsurprising that Kerry would experience contact in addition to her brother.

This report covers what took place with her recent experience, and other previous aspects of her life which may be related in some way. It contains segments of transcript from her hypnotic regression and also many interesting drawings and photographs.

The Investigation

Due to her brother’s experiences, Kerry has some background knowledge on the UFO subject, but has barely looked into abductions as it is an aspect of the subject she has not been particularly interested. Soon after her contact experience, knowing that her brother had already had experiences of this nature, she decided to report what happened via Richard Hall’s website. She had no idea that I assist Richard with investigations, so it is by complete chance that I would end up looking into the case just as I had previously done with her brother!

I contacted Kerry by E-Mail on 18th January 2011. After briefly discussing what happened, I decided the best course of action would be for me to drive round and visit her to speak face-to-face, especially as she lives quite local to myself. The following day I drove around to Kerry’s home to interview her in depth about what happened and take some photographs which you can see throughout this report. Her father and boyfriend were also present.

After going over everything, Kerry decided that she would like to be regressed to see if any further memories would become clear. I agreed with her that this would be a good course of action to take. On the evening of 30th January 2011, myself and hypnotherapist Rob Tudge returned to the house to regress Kerry. Additional details on some of her most interesting experiences were gleaned from this, although quite a lot of what was said she already knew about consciously. Her best friend Tara was also present on this second occasion and I was able to interview her about some of Kerry’s earlier experiences she had also witnessed.

Circle Of Sticks

From an early age to about the age of 16 Kerry experienced a recurring nightmare or vision. She would regularly see the image of a circle made up of thin blue sticks which were bright but not glowing. There was also a dot in the centre of this circle. She would get this vision when lying down and just dropping off to sleep. It used to absolutely terrify her but she has no idea why. She would often curl up into a ball crying when she saw this.

Kerry’s reaction to this vision is unusual, as it does not sound like something which should be very frightening. It is unknown at present if this vision in anything to do with ET contact or not.

Grey Hybridisation Drawings

When I initially interviewed Kerry on the 18th, it was unclear as to whether she had experienced anything directly linked with ETs earlier in her life. Most of her experiences seemed to be focused around paranormal activity, ghosts and gifts she possesses. However she did have a vague recollection of some drawings she had done when she was 12 years old. Unfortunately she could hardly remember anything about these drawings or if they still even existed.

when I returned on the 30th she excitedly handed me a small pile of A4 pages. She informed me that she had gone to ask her father about the drawings, and he had kept a hold of them. When I saw what the drawings were, my jaw almost hit the floor! Below is a scan of each page in order, along with a short description of each sheet.

The first sheet is a cover sheet she had made using a child’s writing stencil. At the top is a date and time on – 4th April 1999, 6.55pm. This is followed by a registration number. The number matches that at the base of a small sticker with her old Castle Bromwich address and phone number on. Kerry thinks that this was for a company her dad was involved with. Under this in big capital letters EVIDENCE. This is followed by what appears to be five letters making an abbreviated word L.O.T.U.S. Kerry has no idea whether there is any meaning behind these letters. At the base of the page are code names that she used for her and her brother Mariah, Casey. And then stamped diagonally across the front of the sheet in big letters TOP SECRET!

The second sheet has a large drawing of a Grey’s face. The being has long dark and slanted almond-shaped eyes. It has two small nostrils, but has no visible mouth or chin drawn. Its head is pear shaped with quite a thick neck.

On the back of the second sheet Kerry has written the words 0% Human.

On the third sheet is another Grey's face. It looks quite similar however this time the being has very dark irises in the eyes. It also now has a slit for a mouth, which is slightly turned up at the sides.

On the back of the third sheet Kerry has drawn an open mouth on its own, I assume this shows what this beings mouth looks like when open. Below this she has written 30% Human.

The drawing on the fourth sheet is a side view of the Grey from the second sheet. A small curved slit can be seen for its right ear. The right eye is protruding out of the front of the face, the rest of the face appears very flat and straight. There is nothing written on the back of this sheet.

The fifth sheet shows a side view of the being from the third sheet. Its ear is more pronounced, though still quite simple in shape. Also note that the front of the face is now more curved than before. Again there is nothing on the back of the sheet.

On the sixth sheet the face has started to develop more human characteristics, though is still clearly alien. It is an exact half-and-half hybrid. Kerry has drawn short strands of hair on the top of the head. It has paler skin now. Its eyes look more human though still large and slanted and dark in shade. It’s nose still looks like two holes but they are closer to human nostrils in their shape. Also for the first time the being has lips. Its ears are longer and protrude from the sides of the head a short distance.

On the back of the sheet again Kerry has drawn the open mouth of the being. Below this she has written 50% Human.

The seventh sheet is a side view of the being from the previous sheet. There is nothing written on the back.

On the eighth sheet the face looks almost normal. It has longer hair and the start of some eyebrows. It has a fully formed protruding nose and ears. Kerry has also drawn a chin for the first time. The eyes are still larger than normal human eyes.

On the back of this sheet she has written 70% Human. Unlike previous sheets there is no open mouth drawn.

The final sheet shows a near human face. It looks female but Kerry says that she does not think it is supposed to be her. It has a full head of hair and eyebrows, and normal looking facial features. The eyes are still slightly large.

On the back of the last sheet Kerry has written 90% Human.

These drawings are an absolute revelation, and I feel that they are good evidence that Kerry has had ET related experiences earlier in her life which she is not currently aware of. At the time she drew them she was not interested in the UFO subject, in fact even today she has only looked into it a bit, and has not looked into contact much at all, nor was she particularly interested in it. The drawings appear directly related to the hybrid breeding program which many including myself believe is one of the key agendas of the Greys here on Earth.

Unfortunately when she handed me the drawings Kerry also informed me that she did not remember the reasons behind why she drew them. I decided that this would be a good thing to explore during the regression. Below are segments of the regression transcript where Rob asked her about the drawings:

R: Higher self, a little later I understand Kerry put together a folder with drawings of some beings. What was the reason for her drafting these images?

K: Don’t know.

R: Higher self knows all. Am I to understand at this point that information is not to be departed?

K: I don’t know, there’s something there, but I don’t know.

R: There’s something there.

K: I don’t know.

R:Higher self can I ask one more thing please. Could you explain to me the meaning of the word LOTUS? What does that mean? Why is that important in your life? LOTUS.

K: It’s a random name.

R: A random name. That’s fine. Just a random name. Thank you.

As you can see, even under hypnosis Kerry could not remember why she drew the pictures. This is surprising as usually lost memories become clear under regression. It perhaps points to a memory block which has been put in place by the ETs. During this part of the regression Rob was speaking to Kerry’s “higher self”, a part of her mind which some believe understands and knows everything which has taken place during the life of the individual.

Scratch Marks

When Kerry was in her early teens her bedroom was haunted by the ghost of a teenage girl. She saw an apparition of this girl on numerous occasions. The girl would appear semi-translucent and Kerry would sometimes catch a glimpse of her standing behind her bedroom door. The apparition would not remain for very long and would quickly fade away. One day she checked behind the bedroom door and found what looked like small footprint depressions in the carpet. She tried to wipe them away but they wouldn’t go, so she hid them under her bin.

When she was 13 years old she began to awake with red scratch marks and bruises which she could not account for. These would occur on her back, front, arms and legs. She was not prone to sleep walking or moving around in the night, and put the markings down to the ghost girl. One morning she awoke with a black eye. Her mother thought she had meningitis so took her down to the doctors. The doctor informed her that it was not meningitis and that it had been caused by an impact.

These ongoing scratches and bruises were of course very upsetting to Kerry, and in the end the family decided to get in a priest to bless the room to see if the ghost could be exorcised. After this blessing was performed the activity seemed to vanish. Also Kerry checked and found that the footprints had vanished from behind the door. However a couple of weeks later the activity started up again, although the footprints never returned. The haunting appeared to continue for a while and then one day died down and stopped altogether.

Kerry believes that she is quite tuned into the spirit world. This is interesting as many contactees report having heightened senses. Could Kerry’s ability to sense ghosts be a side effect of ET contact earlier in her life that she is not currently aware of?

When Kerry was regressed, we decided to take her back to these incidents as well as focus on some of her more ET-related experiences. This confirmed that the scratches were being caused by this ghost girl. Kerry had never forgiven the girl for what she did to her, and had remained frightened of her to present day. With Rob’s assistance she was able to finally show this girl love and come to terms with what had taken place.

Below is a section of the regression transcript relating to this:

R: How old were you with the incident with the scratches?

K: Thirteen.

R: Thirteen. I want you to go back to the first time, to the very first time that you encountered the scratches from the evil. One, two, three. And you’re there. But this time you’ve taken with you your orb of protection and you’re grounded, you are absolutely protected and grounded. Do you understand?

K: Yeah.

R: Ok. You’re thirteen, where are you?

K: Lying in bed.

R: You’re lying in bed. What happens?

K: She comes to get me.

R: She comes to get you. Can you tell me what she looks like?

K: She’s got long red hair.

R: Long red hair.

K: Wavy hair.

R: Long wavy red hair, yeah?

K: Yeah.

R: How old is she?

K: Fourteen.

R: She’s fourteen. How is she dressed?

K: In a white dress. With a pink ribbon.

R: A white dress with a pink ribbon. Do you recognise the style of dress?

K: Old.

R: Old. And what does she do when she comes to see you?

K: She gets in my face and shouts.

R: She gets in your face and shouts. And you’re asleep?

K: I don’t know.

R: She gets in your face and shouts.

K: Yeah.

R: What’s your reaction?

K: Scared.

R: You’re scared.

K: Yeah.

R: Are you looking at her?

K: Yeah.

R: What do you see in her eyes?

K: Evil.

R: Evil. Don’t forget you’re grounded and protected, you’re perfectly safe, you’re looking at a memory. Do you understand?

K: Yeah...

R: Do you understand.

K: Yeah.

R: Good. And what is the thing evil is most scared of?

K: Love.

R: Love. Love. Loving intent, that is what evil is most scared of. I am going to hold your hand. I’m going to put my hand in your hand and hold your hand. I am with you. I am with you, and you’re looking at this evil girl who shouts. Is she the one who scratched you?

K: Yes.

R: Ok. How would it be, how would it be if we knew of her life, and what caused her to be evil? If we knew the reason for her scratching? If we knew the reason for her vileness and evil? Could we understand?

K: Yeah.

R: So how about if you and I send her love and see what happens. Can you do that from the heart?

K: She’s hurt me too much.

R: She is...

K: She’s hurt too much.

R: She’s hurt too much. And now she’s come to take it on you?

K: Yeah.

R: But we can help her. We can help her. We can feel her pain, what she went through, she was hurt, she suffered. She’s just striking out. Send her love from your heart Kerry. Send her love from your heart. You’re meant to do this work. Send her love from your heart. Send her the love that she never had. Send her the love that she so badly needed. You’re the one to do it. Send her the love from your heart. Love that you feel for your little boy. He’s another child that needs your love right now. What’s happening?

K: She’s going away.

R: She’s going. How do you feel?

K: Better.

R: Better. Are you afraid of her now?

K: No.

In talking through the experience with Kerry under hypnosis, Rob was able to get her to overcome her ongoing fear of what had taken place all those years ago. This experience does not appear to be ET related in any way, but it is possible that the reason she has been haunted by the girl is because of her heightened awareness which may have been brought on through contact. This is just a theory and I am not saying that this was definitely the reason behind it.


Around the same time that Kerry was experiencing sightings of the ghost girl, she remembers waking up on several occasions in the middle of the night and finding she could not move. It felt like someone was holding her head completely still. She did not relate this to the girl, and does not remember seeing anything else out of the ordinary when this took place.

It is possible that these incidents were just caused by sleep paralysis, however contactees are usually paralysed when undergoing contact. It is likely this is done to stop them from harming their abductors or disrupting proceedings.

Further Hauntings

Kerry has experienced many different paranormal events throughout her life, both at various homes and in her secondary school. Her best friend and her family have witnessed some of this unusual activity.

At her previous address in Castle Bromwich where her parents still live, Kerry had numerous experiences involving cold spots and shadowy figures.

Kerry believes that at her secondary school she and her best friend Tara were haunted by a ghost which used to do strange things in their proximity. On one occasion they were throwing around a tin foil ball. It fell under the table and when they went to pick it up found that it was no longer there. They searched everywhere around the room but it had gone. The following day the tin foil ball was found sitting inside a locked cupboard. There would have been no reason for anyone to unlock the cupboard, put the ball inside and then lock it again.

On another occasion she and Tara were in the “fly room”, a room they nicknamed because of the number of flies that were always seen in there. Kerry would often mess around and take photographs on her camera phone. On one of the photos she caught what looked like a girls face in the window. Kerry believes this to be the face of one of the ghost which was haunting her.

The original photograph:

Zoomed image of the window from the photograph:

Unfortunately the photograph has been saved or transferred in such a manner that the metadata has been largely lost from it. This is the data which sits behind photographic images and which can be used to help verify authenticity. However due to the nature of the photograph I find it very unlikely it has been manipulated in any way. It is an interesting picture, though I feel that it may not necessarily be a ghost girl, it could just be a simulacrum – a collection of light and shadow that gives the appearance of a recognisable image.

On a different day Kerry and Tara were in a room with some ceiling tiles which would keep becoming loose, even though they put them back correctly a number of times. Each time they would return to the room they would find that they were out of place again. This seemed odd because people would rarely go into the room. Kerry decided to put her camera up through the gap in the tiles and take a photo. When she checked the picture, there was a bright white orb in the middle of it:

This puzzled the girls, and they wondered if it had been caused by a reflection. They moved the tiles but could not see anything which could have caused such a reflection on the screen.

More recently in her current address this paranormal activity appears to have continued. She sometimes hears very unusual bangs and bumps coming from inside the house. As an example, on the night before I visited Kerry for the first time she heard a loud bump in the bedroom which sounded like the bed being knocked against the wall. She was certain that there was nobody up there at the time and that it was not caused by something else such as the central heating.

Ever since she moved into the property in 2010 both Kerry and other visitors to the house have heard unexplained taps on the windows. Sometimes this will be an individual tap, other times it will be multiple like someone knocking. At first Kerry put it down to the pipes in the walls but it has happened so often and so clearly that she is now sure it is something more unusual.

Sometimes she randomly gets the smell of burning rubber. This smell seems to appear out of nowhere then disappear quite soon afterwards.


There were several occasions between the age of 16-18 where Kerry and Tara feel that Kerry may have been possessed by an entity or spirit.

The first occasion, both the girls were down the library checking out some books. Suddenly Kerry’s face appeared to alter and she looked a lot younger and like a different person. Tara obviously became quite disturbed by this and initially hid from her. But after a while she grabbed a hold of her and asked her “What are you doing?” At this moment her face seemed to return to normal. Kerry could not remember anything which had happened during this period of time.

The next incident was far more terrifying. The girls were in the “fly room” (where they had previously taken the photograph of the ghost girl shown earlier). Kerry was sitting alongside a table when suddenly her arms went up in the air, and she couldn’t put them down. Tara went over to help her and try to drag them back down when suddenly Kerry appeared to be pulled right across the table by her arms. Tara was dragged along with her, so whatever was doing it was quite powerful.

Tara grabbed a hold of Kerry and tried dragging her out of the room and Kerry started behaving extremely violently towards her, screaming at her and slapping her around the face. Tara says that just like the first time it did not seem like her at all, it was like she had suddenly changed. Tara managed to pull her out of the room and then suddenly Kerry returned to normal. Just like before she could not remember what she had done. Instead while it was taking place she had seen a vision of herself sitting in a field by a tree.

The third incident took place at a party Kerry was holding round her house. Suddenly she got up and stood on top of a chair. As soon as she was up there she again seemed to switch and looked different again like a little girl. She then began walking across the room apparently with the intention of climbing out of the window. Tara grabbed a hold of her and Kerry scratched her through her jeans. Tara pushed her down onto a bed and another friend put his hand on Kerry’s head and started praying. This seemed to work and Kerry returned to normal.

These incidents are very unusual indeed. They do not appear related to ET contact at all, but as the girls believe, could have been down to evil spirits which were haunting them at the time. Neither of the girls believe that there was a medical explanation, however Kerry did not report the incidents to her doctor. She has not experienced any other incidents like this since.

Healing Hands

Kerry’s father, aunt and gran have always believed that they have the ability to heal people using their hands. Kerry’s gran used to perform reiki healing, where as her father only used his ability unofficially when friends or acquaintances asked him to help them with aches and pains.

It appears that Kerry too has this gift. She discovered she could do this when she was about 18 years old after her aunt passed away, but does not remember exactly how she first found out. She says she probably just tried it out on a friend after hearing about what her aunt used to be able to do. She says that she doesn’t actually touch whoever she is healing, but holds her hands closely over their skin. She then feels her hands warm up and visualises taking the negative energy out of them as black smoke which then enters her hands. She has tried this numerous times on people, including her best friend and they have informed her that it appears to work. I spoke with her friend prior to Kerry’s regression and she confirmed this.

Many contactees report having psychic or healing abilities. It appears to occur so often that it is felt by many to have a direct link with their experiences. It is possible that these abilities are granted to them by the ETs for a particular reason, or perhaps they are just a side effect of their experiences, it is not really known for certain at present.

It is possible that Kerry has gained her ability through ET contact, but it seems more likely that it was passed down to her from her father. Her father has had no experiences which would lead him to believe he is a contactee.

Footprints In The Snow

In October 2010 Kerry’s boyfriend built a wooden coffin for a Halloween competition. He had left the coffin outside leaning up against the wall of the house. One morning they awoke and found that it had been snowing during the night. When Kerry went outside she noticed something very strange. The model coffin was open topped so snow had fallen inside it. On the base edge of the coffin, imprinted in the snow, were what looked like a couple of small footprints. They had clearly defined rounded toes at the front but were thinner than human feet and did not appear to have a heel. The markings were facing to the right and slightly inwards towards the living room window.

Witness drawing of how the markings appeared:

Drawing of the model coffin showing the position of the markings:

When Kerry saw the markings she briefly thought about getting her camera and taking a photo of them. Sadly she soon forgot this notion and went back inside the house.

Could these markings have been genuine footprints? If they were then surely there would have been other footprints leading up to them? There was just the single pair of identical markings, if they were from an animal then it looks like it came down from above and then did not move at all. Also it seems like a very odd place for the markings to have appeared. They were not on the ground but were actually inside the model coffin on one of the inside edges. Why would there have been an animal standing there?

I have had a look at some animal tracks charts and none of the footprints I’ve found match the markings that were found. There were only two markings, so if they were caused by an animal it appears that it would have been upright on two legs.

Could there have been some other explanation for the markings? Perhaps water dripped down from either the top of the coffin or roof of the house, melting the snow and creating the two identical shapes. Perhaps sunlight was catching the morning snow and melting it in such a way. Obviously the notion of an ET being seemingly teleporting to the location, standing right outside the back door of the house on a model coffin and then vanishing again is hard to fathom. But the markings are still interesting and will probably remain a puzzling mystery.

Grey Visitation

In mid 2010 Kerry moved into a house in Shard End, Birmingham. On Sunday 16th January 2011 she headed up to sleep at about 10.30pm. Her boyfriend Tom was already asleep after heading upstairs earlier. Kerry is a light sleeper and regularly up in the middle of the night for no apparent reason. She usually checks her clock on her phone and then goes back to sleep. However on this night she kept waking up quite a number of times, a lot more than she would usually do.

It was the early hours of the morning when she awoke yet again, and this time found herself facing towards Tom. This again was out of the ordinary as she would usually sleep either on her back or facing away from him. She decided to roll over in bed to face the right way again. As she turned and looked down the bed to her left, she came face to face with a Grey being. The being appeared to be actually up on the bed next to her rather than standing alongside it, but from its proportions Kerry believes it was quite small and short in height. It had an oval shaped head. Its skin colouration was pale grey but was shiny in the same way that snake’s scales glisten. It’s eyes seemed quite small but were completely black, almond shaped and slightly slanted. The being had two small holes for a nose and a thin slit for a mouth. Under its head Kerry could see a long thin neck. She also noticed a cylindrical shaped smooth body and long thin arms, but she was concentrating on its face so did not see these too clearly. It did not look threatening in any way, and Kerry says it actually looked friendly.

Witness drawing of the Grey’s head. She did not draw the body as she did not see it clearly enough:

Due to her background knowledge in the UFO subject she immediately recognised the being as an alien, but was intrigued by its eyes which looked smaller than the ones she had seen drawings of. Kerry stressed to me that although she knows a bit about the subject she never dreams about aliens and rarely thinks about them. She does not believe the being was just a vivid dream, it definitely felt to her to be a real experience.

The Grey was completely still and did not appear to be directly staring at her. The rational emotion in such a situation would be shock or fear, but strangely Kerry felt completely calm and at ease when she saw the being. She did not shout out or try to wake Tom, instead she merely rolled back over and fell off to sleep. This may sound like an unusual thing to do, but contactees often report this feeling of calmness. It is probably employed by the ETs so that the contactee will not panic about what is taking place.
