Israel Curiel's Biography
Israel Curiel is a MUFON Investigator for North Carolina. He took the position as Public Relations Director in May 2011. His interest in UFOs started in High School when a fellow student confided in him concerning a close encounter. Shorty after that he read the book Communion by Whitley Strieber about lifelong alien abductions.
A few years later he discovered that his uncle, a dentist in Mexico city, had a UFO sighting of white orbs hovering over the highway just outside Mexico City. Then in 2010 a second uncle had a sighting of a cylinder hovering over Asheville NC. These interactions fueled his desire to learn more and become more active in seeking out answers to these phenomenon. His day job is in reporting and data analytics. Over the last couple of years he has spent his evenings doing data analytics and trend analysis on the nearly 50,000 cases in the MUFON Case Management System.
Since becoming the Public Relations Director he has lectured all over the state including Charlotte, Asheboro, Hickory, Fayetteville, Asheville, Wilmington and Concord. He has spoken to hundreds of UFO witnesses and dozens of alleged abductees. On November 5, 2011 Israel, along with 5 other witnesses and a fellow MUFON Investigator, witnessed a boomerang shaped craft at approximately 5,000 feet. Since that day he has no longer doubted the veracity of UFO sightings nor its implications.
