Recently I was on the new Grassy Knoll show at the Think or Be Eaten site: http://thinkorbeeaten.com/theknoll/radio.html There, in episode 39 of my series with Vyz, we discuss recent developments in the Mothman world, as well as laud the work of John Keel, who recently died. In that show, I mentioned that in 1978, Harold Salkin of Official UFO magazine did a story on Woodrow Derenberger. The magazine printed a photo of an accident involving a VW bug on the night Woody met Indrid Cold (who drove a VW). Such a rare photo showed that the magazine had done some homework on the case. Interestingly, they also printed a photo of an unidentified man with a penetrating gaze. Oddly, they simply said that it was a “picture taken recently in Pt. Pleasant.”
When I saw the face of the unidentified man, I was immediately struck by his resemblance to a drawing apparently made by someone who had once met Cold (and who had later posted it to the internet).
Both men had high cheekbones and eyes that slanted slightly upwards at the outside – slightly “Oriental.” Since Cold was known to have lived in Midway, WV for several years after the Mothman events, the man in the Official UFO article could very well be Indrid Cold.
At some point following the publication of this photo, Cold is said to have moved to Cleveland, OH. His whereabouts are currently unknown, but he is most likely still in the Cleveland area. Please forward any pertinent information you may have about the identify of this man to LOWFI. He is probably between 70 and 80 years old, and one of his aliases may be “John Morgan.” Do not attempt to confront Cold directly. He is a skilled agent and potentially dangerous, despite his age.
