Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

The record of youth for alleged apparitions of creatures seems to have been beaten when a UFO and paranormal radio show host indicated that in Homer, Alaska, in 1955, during the night, 3-year-old Mark Fritz said he met a strange being in his bedroom.

The being was in a black coat and opened that coat so that the witness is not afraid. Mark Fritz remembered that the face was of human appearance and that he made him feel at ease. The assertion that it was an extraterrestrial came from a group that called themselves the "Nodnuls." There is no other information.

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Homer, Alaska, in 1955, at night, 3-year old Mark Fritz reported encountering a strange being in his bedroom. The being was wearing a black cloak and pulled it open so the witness would not be scared. The witness recalled that the face was human-like and it made him feel at ease. The alien claim he was from a group that was called the "Nodnuls." No other information.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Art Bell, Shadow People.

Points to consider:

Popular radio host Art Bell, of Coast to Coast AM, hosted many discussions on the topic of "shadow people", a term he coined for such reports.

This particular story suffers the huge problem that a 3-year-old person can absolutely not be considered a reliable observer. Any baby or young child "sees" such things; it does not mean that they are real at all.
