We pick up the story later the same day. Jaye Paro has another encounter with “Miss Xeno,” as John dubbed her.
Sulfa tablets are antimicrobial, and contain synthetic sulfonamides. They’re not straight sulfur. John kept some from one of his contactees, which I posted a picture of here.
We have here the next excerpt from John’s “Special Cases” file, his investigation of contactees in Long Island in 1967. Jaye Paro has already had an unsettling encounter with a strange woman in a library and a clothing store, and now meets her again. She also has her first encounter with Mr. Apol. All of this was eventually incorporated into Chapter 15 of The Mothman Prophecies. This is a fuller account, including Apol’s odd questions to Jaye.
John states here that he thinks she’s telling the truth, but expresses reservations elsewhere in his files.
We continue through John’s “Special Cases” file, which chronicles, day by day, his investigations in 1967. Jaye Paro had started sending him her experiences, which only became stranger and more elaborate as time went on. It should be remembered that John was suspicious of her stories, but kept up the correspondence to find out more. These next few entries concern Jaye’s encounters with the mysterious “Librarian.”
Please note the first appearance of the enigmatic Mr. Apol, here spelled “Apal.”
Forging doggedly through John’s “Special Cases” files, we come across his first interactions with Jaye Paro (the professional name of Joanne Perranno). Readers may recognize her from her appearance in The Mothman Prophecies. I have no idea what she was up to, but a lot of high weirdness followed.
