Alleged alien abductee in one of the most famous and earliest abduction cases in history.
Betty Hill was an American social worker and a central figure in the Betty and Barney Hill abduction case. She was born on June 28, 1919, in Newton, New Hampshire, and worked for the state's Department of Health and Human Services. She was married to Barney Hill and the two were known for their activism in the Civil Rights Movement.
On September 19, 1961, Betty and her husband Barney were driving home from a vacation, through the rural White Mountains of New Hampshire, when they claimed they witnessed a strange craft in the sky. They claimed the object followed them, and Barney got out of the car to investigate what it was. After allegedly noticing ET beings in the craft, he got back in the car and tried to escape. Barney claimed that he has weird marks on his body the next day, and Betty had horrible nightmares. Over many months they underwent hypnotic therapy and began to recall details of their abduction.
The Hill case became a sensation in the media and in UFO circles, and the couple's story has been the subject of numerous books, films, and documentaries. Betty Hill passed away on October 17, 2004, at the age of 85, but her story continues to be a subject of interest and debate in the field of ufology.
