According to Thomas Carey and Donald Schmitt, Ernet Lueras was a rancner of farmer who had worked with William "Mack" Brazel, and was at the gas station of corona when they interviewed him.

According to the newspaper Detroit Free Press, Detroit, Michigan, for July 6, 1997, page 2, who interviewed Ernest Lueras, he had been working on the Foster ranch in 1947. In 1997, they wrote, Lueras was 65, mayor of Corona and owner of the town's Shell service station.


There is no affidavit by Ernest Lueras.

Interviews and public statements:

Detroit Free Press:

This newspaper interviewed Lueras in 1997 for an article about the Roswell incident.


[...] When Brazel got back to Corona, after spending a week in Roswell with Army Air Force authorities, he clammed up about the crash, said Lueras, who was working on the Foster ranch in 1947.

"They brainwashed him or something," Lueras said of Brazel. "After that as soon as he saw someone drive up to the house, he would get on his horse and ride off."


Brazel decided to make the trip down the road to where the Army air base was, 105 miles southeast of Corona, 75 miles southeast of the pasture, the road down to Roswell. "Roswell. That's a lot of false advertising [*]," said Ernest Lueras, 65, mayor of Corona and owner of the town's Shell service station.


[*] Meaning, in the same direction the article went, that the crash site was not "in Roswell" but near Corona.


Investigators notes and comments:

Thomas J. Carey and Donald R. Schmitt:

A former ranch hand of Brazel's, Ernest Lueras, was recently interviewed by the authors at his Corona filling station. Lueras recalled a time when he and Mack drove from Corona to Tularosa, a drive that on today's modern roads takes three hours to complete. The trip was made sometime after the 1947 events but before Mack left Corona for good to open his own business in Las Cruces (a meat-packing enterprise). The reason Lueras recalls this drive so vividly after all these years is Brazel's very odd behavior. After making several attempts at conversation, Lueras finally gave up. The rest of the trip was made in total silence. Lueras was nonplussed, and did not know what to make of the silent treatment from his boss. Today, Lueras states his belief that 'They (the military) really messed him up."


The authors say that maybe out of loyalty to his country or just fear and deep concern for the safety and well-being of his family, William "Mack" Brazel never talked of the incident, and went out of his way to avoid any conversation about this bleak time in his life.

They say hired workers such as Ernest Lueras remember "Mack"'s demeanor had changed, Lueras saying:

"There was one particular time I rode along with him down to Tularosa." "This was right after he got into all that trouble with the Army. He didn't say anything. I tried to strike up a conversation. Not a word was said for the entire time I was with him. They (the military) really messed him up."

The authors say this comes from a "personal interview" with Ernest Lueras in 2000.
