The residents of Polk County will soon see the KGRA Mobile Broadcast/Investigations Unit rolling into Mena, Arkansas, as KGRA Investigations prepares to hold a first of its kind, Town Hall Meeting. “The extensive historical reports and on-going unexplained activity reported from this area, is the focus of this Town Hall Meeting,” stated a press release sent out by KGRA, an internet radio station that broadcasts alternative talk radio.
Local phenomena at the Board Camp Crystal Mines is currently being studied by several teams after mysterious orbs of light, floating rocks, and extremely magnetized objects have been seen and discovered on the property. In May 2017, Josh Gates of The Travel Channel’s hit shows, Expedition Unknown and Destination Truth, filmed for an episode at the Crystal Mine with owners Orville and Cheryl Murphy. That episode is set to air in one of a four part series titled “Expedition Unknown: Hunt for Extraterrestrials.” The series begins on Wednesday, October 4, at 8 p.m., central time. In addition to the phenomena happening at Board Camp Crystal Mine, the four-episode series will include Gates’ visits to Easter Island, Chile’s Atacama Desert, and the wilderness of Zimbabwe.
During Gates’ filming, a team from MUFON (the Mutual UFO Network) was on site collecting samples and observing the events. MUFON was founded in 1969 and, today, is a nation-wide 501(c)3 organization with approximately 4,000 paid members that has teams of investigators from professional backgrounds who volunteer their time to investigate reports of unexplained anomalies. MUFON field investigator Chase Kloetzke experienced some of the phenomena and details of she and Gates’ investigation will be revealed during the episode. Currently, MUFON investigators classify the phenomena experienced at the Board Camp Crystal Mine as “undeniably scientifically unexplained.” The Murphy’s story and scientific results of the MUFON investigation is also expected to be reported on in the November 2017 issue of the MUFON Journal.
