This week, we’re discussing a mysterious disappearance; a body with strange burns and an inexplicable substance that baffled scientists. Zigmund Adamski, a 56 year old miner, went missing from his home in Tingley, near Wakefield in June 1980. He had gone out to do some shopping. To Zigmund’s colleagues at Lofthouse Colliery, it was a complete mystery. Five days after he disappeared, Zigmund’s body was discovered 20 miles from his home at a coal yard in Todmorden and the strangeness doesn’t end there. This first responding officer and the man who would go on to investigate Adamski’s death would inexplicably go on to be plagued by UFO encounters and abductions for decades to come.
