Episode 136
American Goblins—Part 1

Little Man (by Andrew Bud)

Little Man (by Andrew “Bud” Ledwidth) from the book Close Encounter at Kelly and Others of 1955 (1978)

In August of 1955, a farm family in Kentucky found their home under attack by strange goblin-like monsters. In the years since the attack, the case has retained a perplexing endurance. What happened that night in Kentucky? Were aliens to blame? Underworld monsters? Misidentified natural causes? This is part one of our discussion of what has become known as The Kelly-Hopkinsville Encounter.
