John Demjanjuk was convicted of being the notorious Nazi guard “Ivan the Terrible,” sentenced to be executed in Israel. He was proven to be not the “Ivan” at Treblinka, but he was certainly the one at Sobibor. The next case is that of a photo of a Pennsylvania Union army soldier named Milo Welton who appeared to be an officer, whereas he had supposedly never been more than a private. The identity of the soldier as Milo Welton was confirmed. Another case is about a film purportedly depicting the post-mortem examination of an extra-terrestrial who died in a UFO crash at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. Although the film had supposedly been authenticated by Kodak, only the leader tape and a single frame had been submitted for examination, not the entire footage. The film was then found to be a hoax.
