Skinwalker RanchEdit

In the mid 90's, journalist George Knapp wrote a series of articles in the alternative weekly Las Vegas Mercury concerning paranormal activity at Skinwalker Ranch. Knapp co-authored with Colm Kelleher the book, Hunt for the Skinwalker: Science Confronts the Unexplained at a Remote Ranch in Utah,[1] in which they describe the ranch being acquired by the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDSci) to study anecdotal sightings of UFOs, bigfoot-like creatures, crop circles, glowing orbs and poltergeist activity reported by its former owners.


In 2004, Knapp won a national Edward R. Murrow Award for a story about vote fraud in Clark County, Nevada. He has also won over a dozen Emmy Awards and several writing awards from the Associated Press.
