Since he moved to the area, he has had a fascination with the crash, reading a number of books on the topic and doing his own researching.
“I can absolutely comfortably say something very evident happened here, a lot of military activity in 1948,” he said.
However, Marshall considers himself a “technology nut,” not totally sold on the idea of little green men in Aztec.
“I would put myself firmly in the position of skeptic,” he said.
Nonetheless, Marshall makes the trek to Heart Canyon and the crash site yearly. On Friday, he acted as tour guide leading from a parking area, up what has come to be called the ‘Road to Nowhere’ and to a concrete pad. There is what seems to be a road carved into the side of a rise, cleared of trees and ending abruptly. Where the ‘road’ ends is a small concrete pad.
Marshall said Scott Ramsay, author of “The Aztec UFO Incident” core-sampled the concrete, cut some rebar and has confirmed that it would have been poured in the time frame that would prove plausible to be there when the craft landed.
Marshall conjectures that it was used to support some heavy machinery. Then following a mountain bike trail named “Alien Run”, he stopped in a clearing about 150 feet wide and explained that this was where the craft, about 99 feet in diameter, was found.
“It appeared to not be hurt or damaged other than one window with a hole in it,” Marshall said.
There isn’t much to see at the site 69 years later. Someone has created the outline of an alien’s face with river rocks and authors Scott and Suzanne Ramsay have placed a plaque to commemorate the area.
“Something definitely happened, it could have been a UFO,” Brooks said.
