About the author
Bill Chalker, born in Grafton,
New South Wales (NSW) Australia, was educated at the University of
New England, graduating with an Honors Science Degree (B.Sc. Honors)
with majors in Chemistry and Mathematics.
Over the years, Mr. Chalker helped brought together an informal
network of scientists who all view the UFO phenomenon as worthy of
serious attention. (Many of Mr. Chalker's colleagues prefer to
contribute anonymously because the UFO problem is seen as a
"forbidden science" in the industrialized West).
A Sydney, Australian Abduction Experience From 1992, with biological
evidence, that Mr. Chalker helped to research, became the subject of
the world's first DNA PCR investigation of an alleged alien
specimen, yielding intriguing results that have suggested
fascinating new lines of investigation and speculation.
Bill Chalker is one of Australia's leading UFO researchers and has
written extensively on the subject. He is a contributing editor for
the International UFO Reporter and coordinates the NSW UFO
INVESTIGATION CENTRE (UFOIC).
He was the Australian representative for the Aerial Phenomena
Research Organization (APRO)
from 1978 to 1986 and NSW state representative for the Mutual UFO
from 1976 to 1993.
In 1999, Bill Chalker released details of the world's first PCR DNA
profiling of an "alien" biological hair sample implicated in a
Sydney abduction experience. The DNA evidence revealed in continuing
study appears to have profound implications for the nature of the
reality behind abduction experiences. Bill Chalker has formed a
specialized research team - the Anomaly Physical Evidence Group (APEG)
which is focusing on the biological and genetic aspects of the UFO
In 1996, Mr. Chalker had lectured with Harvard researcher Dr.
John Mack and Dominique
Callimanopulos on the abduction phenomenon in Sydney and
assisted them in their cross cultural investigation of possible
abduction experiences in indigenous cultures.
In 1989 and 1990 the first articles on
the UFO abduction phenomenon by a UFO researcher to be published in
national Australian magazines appeared, namely Mr. Chalker's
articles in Penthouse and Nature & Health.

Bill Chalker was originally

the quarterly journal of the Chicago-based J. Allen Hynek Center
for UFO Studies (CUFOS).
Peter Khoury, the subject of this case, was born in Lebanon
in 1964 and moved to Australia in 1973. There he met his future wife
Vivian at school in 1981. Peter and Vivian were married in 1990 and
had two children, and lived in Sydney, at the time of this report.
Peter and Vivian had their first UFO experience in February 1988, a
simple sighting of unusual moving lights. But in July of that year,
Peter had a deeply disturbing, consciously remembered contact
experience that, he says, changed his life.
Mr. Chalker points out that "alien" beings are often described by
experiencers as having no visible hair. But one species of
Extraterrestrial being sometimes called "Nordic", is described
fairly often as having distinctly human-like features including
hair, often (though not always) blond in color. A number of
well-known abduction cases have involved human-looking beings with
hair, including the 1975 abduction reported by Travis Walton in
Arizona, and the 1957 Brazilian abduction reported by Antonio Villas
Peter Khoury's case has some
similarity to that of Villas Boas,
who said he,
"was forced to have sex with an
aggressive humanoid female aboard a landed UFO."
Mr. Khoury told Mr. Chalker
that his encounter of July 23, 1992 began at 7:30 in the morning
while he was in bed. Earlier that morning, he had driven his wife to
work, then returned home and went back to bed for a short while.
Suddenly, he bolted wide awake and sat
"were two humanoid females sitting
on the bed, both entirely naked," says Peter Khoury.
"These two women looked human in nearly every way. They had well
proportioned adult bodies. One looked somewhat Asian, with
straight dark shoulder-length hair and dark eyes. The other
looked "perhaps Scandinavian-like", with light-colored ("maybe
bluish") eyes and long blond hair that fell half-way down her
Her hair was especially notable to Peter
"I had never seen a hair style like
that. It was curled something like Farrah Fawcett, but to an
extreme... It just looked really exotic in a way," he told Mr.
But Mr. Khoury felt that "these women were not exactly human.
Their faces were somewhat odd - not unattractive, but too
chiseled, with very high cheekbones and eyes that were two or
three times larger than normal."
Mr. Khoury took special notice of the
Her face was too long, he felt.
"I have never seen a human looking
like that," he said.
"The blonde, who was sitting in a kneeling position on the bed,
seemed to be in charge", and Mr. Khoury as felt that she was
communicating somehow with the dark-haired woman,
telepathetically "who was sitting with her legs partly folded
under her. There was something stiff, almost blank, in the
expressions of the women," Mr. Khoury observed.
Though very stunned by the sudden
appearance of the women, Khoury had only a few moments to consider
how they could possibly have arrived in his bedroom before,
"the blonde reached out with both
her hands and cupped the back of his head, drawing his face
toward her chest."
Mr. Khoudry told Mr. Chalker that he
resisted. She then pulled harder.
He further responded by further pulling
"She was pretty strong," he further
told Mr. Chalker. "She pulled me over and my mouth was basically
on her nipple. And I bit."
Mr. Khoury said he doesn't know why he
bit the woman, but even though he felt a small piece of her nipple
come away in his teeth, she did not cry out.
But "the expression on her face was
like, 'this isn't the way,' as if she was in some sort of
"contemplative" shock or confusion," Mr. Khoury further
Mr. Khoury then indicated that, the
apparent Blonde Human-looking Extraterrestrial looked at the
Asian Human-looking Extraterrestrial... and the
Blonde-looking ET, looked at him, with similar "contemplative" shock
Involuntarily, Mr. Khoury indicated that he swallowed the small
fragment in his mouth, and it caught in his throat. He went into a
"suddenly, the two women simply
disappeared," Mr. Khoudry says.
Some time during Mr. Khoury's contact
with these Human-looking Extraterrestrials, he was apparently
When Mr. Khoury realized the women were gone, he tried to clear his
throat by drinking water. It didn't work. Mr. Khoury added, he then
had "an urge to go to the bathroom."
Mr. Khoury then indicated that he realized,
"his penis felt very painful."
Standing in the bathroom, he then decided to "pull back the
foreskin and found two thin blond strands of hair wrapped
He struggled to unravel the pieces of
hair as the pain became an intense burning sensation.
Finally he managed to removed the two
pieces of hair and immediately put them in a small sealable plastic
"The reason I did that was because I
knew that there was no way, no way at all, that a hair that size
and wrapped around the way it was should have been there... [T]hinking
of these women, the thing in my throat, the hair, something
bizarre had just happened."
Mr. Khoury resolved to keep the hair
sample in case it should ever prove useful in shedding light on his
The thing in Khoury's throat stayed there for three days. He coughed
constantly. He tried clearing his throat with water, bread, anything
he could think of, but nothing helped. On the third day, the feeling
in his throat just went away.
He did not want to tell his wife how his coughing fit had come
about, but two weeks later he decided to tell her.
"I was shocked," he told Mr. Chalker.
"She accepted it better than I did."
DNA examination of
The pieces of hair, carefully stored away since the encounter,
became the subject of the first openly-reported scientific DNA test
on a possible abduction-related sample.
The blond hairs were extremely thin and almost clear in color. It
was determined that the hair was not chemically treated, because if
it had been, little or no mitochondrial DNA could have been
recovered. However, using the PCR (polymerase chain reaction)
process, good quality DNA was recovered.
For comparison, samples were also taken of Peter Khoury's hair and
that of his wife Vivian. DNA was successfully extracted from Peter's
hair, but no usable DNA was recovered from Vivian's hair, possibly
because of chemical treatment.
After thorough testing of the hair
samples, the scientists of the Anomaly Physical Evidence Group
arrived at a startling conclusion. The thin blond hair, which
appeared to have come from a light-skinned caucasian-like looking
woman, could not have come from a normal human of that racial type.
Instead, though apparently 'human', the hair showed five distinctive
DNA markers that are characteristic of a rare sub-group of the
Chinese Mongoloid racial type.
A detailed survey of the literature on variations in mitochondrial
DNA, comprising tens of thousands of samples, showed only four other
people on record with all five of the distinctive markers in the
blond hair. All four were Chinese, with black hair.
Mitochondrial DNA is passed only from mother to child and therefore
offers a means of tracing ancient ancestry on the mother's side. The
findings suggest that all four of the Chinese subjects share a
common female ancestor with the blonde woman. But there is no easy
explanation for how this could be.
Testing for nuclear DNA, if such could be recovered from the blond
hair, would be more complex and expensive than the tests run so far,
but might show that the lineage of the blonde's father was even
stranger than that of her mother. But such testing must await
funding that has yet to be found. So far, the members of the Anomaly
Physical Evidence Group have financed all their work themselves.
Without the blond hair sample, the account told by Peter Khoury is
but one more in an almost endless sequence of wrenching, but
improvable, abduction accounts.
The hair, however, changes everything.
"It undeniably exists," Bill Chalker
says "and thorough forensic testing shows that it is anomalous.
It seems likely that no person with blond hair and an exact DNA
match to Khoury's blonde could be found in the city of Sydney,
nor on the continent of Australia, nor -- probably -- anywhere
in the world."
Who then was the being whose blond hair
inexplicably became wrapped around Peter Khoury's penis?
"Are we dealing with 'humans' from
elsewhere, namely those with human DNA, albeit very rare and
somewhat anomalous?" asks Bill Chalker.
"This case raises all sorts of
issues, such as human 'panspermia' - the theory that human-like
beings may have migrated to Earth in the fairly recent past from
elsewhere in the galaxy, perhaps giving rise to the sudden
appearance of modern homo sapiens, a species not directly
descended from their immediate predecessors, the Neanderthals."
"Also, given the Asian mongoloid connection, we looked at the
problem of European-like rare Asian types in the past," Mr.
"The controversial saga of the
Taklamakan mummies in remote Western China is turning the early
history of China on its head. These mummies include people who
are quite tall, some 6 feet or so, and some are blond. I'm not
suggesting a connection here, but you can understand this
investigation has opened up all sorts of interesting
possibilities about the biological nature of some of the beings
implicated in abduction cases."
These questions will not be easy to
