This is going to sound crazy but while camping last night a small group of friends and I saw something that looked very strange out at pennyrile state forest. Afterwards someone mentioned this "goblin" and scared the hell out of me lol has anyone ever seen this thing or anything weird around here ? P.S. I know this is ridiculous already so please keep all rude ass comments to yourself. Thanks :)

Saw documentaries and movies about this, in the News Papers all over the world, ET was suppose to be made from this story.

They have a festival in the summer at the place it happened in Kelly.

The men looked green because they were looking through the bottom of a green whiskey bottle. I've heard accounts of this story 1st hand. All I could smell was whiskey the whole time they were telling me. Enough said. I have seen many strange things in my life but, there aren't any green men. Only people from Kelly that got lead poisoning from their still and turned green. It being in papers all over the world is an embarrassment to this area.

I live in Crofton and don't think the story is true but I went to the festival and had fun. They turned that story into a really good thing for the community.

My grandfather was one of the first policemen on the scene. Never heard the account from his perspective but I've also heard that it was a story they made up to occupy the police while they moved a moonshine still to a different location.

You hardly ever hear them called Hopkinsville Goblins around here, the first time I ever heard that term was from a Japanese guy over at Autotech, turns out the story is quite well known over there because it is similar to stories in Japan about forest and lake spirits that have reportedly attacked people (which might be a good place for our state to spend tourism dollars to advertise international tourism?)
Most folks around here call them the Little Green Men, though the eyewitnesses said they were like a metallic silver/grey.
The Hopkinsville police always maintained the people involved were sober bible thumpers who didn't drink. The only police account that ever maintained it was a hoax was Hoss Cansler who was with the Crofton cops said it was a prank using cats being thrown up against the house to scare the people inside, but he also maintained that nobody was drunk.
One of the most interesting (and outrageous) theories that I ever heard was that the things were not aliens, but some variation of fae or fairy folk, like leprechauns or brownies. Since the Sutton family was descended from Scot/Irish/English roots the creatures may of had a personal reason to torment them from the "old country". It makes no more or less sense than the alien story, but it is funny in it's own way.
Of course without this tall tale, we'd probably not have the films Close Encounters, ET, Poltergeist, or Gremlins since Spielberg has claimed all four films were spun off of elements for an original idea to do a film called "Dark Skies" that was going to be based on the Kelly incident.

Thanks for all the posts I really appreciate it ! We were probably just a little too intoxicated and were scaring ourselves lol. I think the festival sounds cool though I'm relativley new to Hopkinsville and I don't really know all the events around here but that sounds fun ill have to look up when it is. If anyone knows any other fun things here in Hoptown (festivals faires flea markets) or any other haunted places I'm a dork and love taking pictures at strange places :) let me know !

Don't know how anyone heard they weren't drinking. They were drinking the day they told me about it 25 years ago. Drinking never made me see green men but let's get the story straight. Hopkinsville police say they weren't? Hell, they say they don't. That's the first time I've ever heard that. There were no green men. Great story by moonshiners.

It happened in the 50's not 25 years ago! You just failed in your lie.

I gave out simple facts of this case that are widely known without any vitriol or hate, then had someone who has already made a few slanted and ugly posts essentially call me a liar. Do you think I don't have a right to call out this? He said he heard it first hand but then says he heard it only 25 years ago. I doubt since he does not give the name of anyone who told him and his holes in his story that it does not pass the smell test. There were elderly people and children in that house, were they all drinking and moonshining too?
The worst part is that it is a silly story and obviously cannot be true, so why fabricate a lie to add onto the tall tale? Because you know most of the people are not alive anymore to say otherwise? If you want to be critical, be critical based on the facts. Even the Wikipedia article about it mentions that no one suspected anyone there of drinking.
So why am I getting castigated when the person making the claims that go against all the literature gets a free ride against critcism?

I am glad you finally came around to seeing things my way. I mean why would that guy just make up stuff against the cacophony of evidence to the contrary except to be dramatic or for reasons of propaganda?

You didn't talk to anyone about shit 25 years ago all that took place in the 50's you are a flat out liar. Live on in your dream world punk and keep trying to make people think you know what your talking about, if they do they are fools just like you. And any mouse is just reading shot on wiki as always she has some facts straight but the rest is all bull. Sutton family true
Fifties true
Little green men o Kelly true
The rest is bullshit.

Yes, just like I read this.

Read em and weep. I especially recommend the part that says "Offical investigations of the invasion at Kelly on the night of the event revealed no evidence that the people at the home were drinking"
Find one bit of printed evidence other than this person's hearsay claim that they were drinking. You won't, but give it a good college try.
Once again, I don't believe in this incident one bit. However, I trust that the reports of many authorities and witnesses that claim the family wasn't drinking far more than an anonymous internet troll who has an unverifable story on Topix.

Coverup?!?! So you really believe the government found real aliens or something and used to cops and Fort Campbell to cover it up? BWAHAHA!
Now I know you are trolling me. I know a few people on here just argue with me about anything, but that one takes the cake!
