Ufology Exopolitics Special – R. Theilmann’s Family Weigh In

Richard Theilmann aka Source AAs reported in our reports of the investigation into the Richard Theilmann affair, Reality Uncovered investigators have had extensive discussions with some members of Theilmann’s family.

These discussions proved to us beyond any shadow of doubt that Richard Theilmann has never served in any branch of the United States armed forces. Our team of investigators had already uncovered masses of evidence that showed how Richard Theilmann had not only duped some gullible researchers in the UFO community, but also respected veterans of the US Navy.

We can now reveal that two of those family members have agreed to tell their side of the story at the Reality Uncovered forums.

Laura Leight-Hernandez, formerly Laura Theilmann, is Richard Theilmann’s ex-wife. Laura’s son, former stepson of Richard, initially contacted us at RU after reading our first report that revealed the name behind the anonymous handle.  He put us in touch with Laura, who we verified as being who she was claimed to be.

Laura told us that Richard had never served in the military and listed the (civilian) places he had worked while they were together. She also informed us it would have been impossible for Richard to have ever served in the military because of an ileostomy operation that Richard had at a very young age. There were also many other things discussed, far too many for the scope of this item, but they may well crop up in the forum discussions.

Barbara Rose Theilmann is the widow of Lt. Col. Robert Theilmann USMC, Richard’s brother who was killed in a helicopter accident in 2003. Barbara also confirmed to us that Richard had never served in the military and also offered insight into how Richard may have used his brother’s documents in order to fake his own naval career.

Both Laura and Barbara have signed up to the Reality Uncovered forums and have agreed to answer any questions our readers may have relating to their knowledge of Richard Theilmann. Both discussion threads are in the Exopolitics forum and anyone can read the discussions as they progress, but only forum members can ask questions.

For anyone wanting to familiarise themselves with the story so far, here are the links to the articles in chronological order:

    The courage that these two women display in standing up against fraud in this case is just amazing.

    Thank you to both Barbara and Laura for coming to RU to answer questions about the Stolen Valor and to give us a bit of background on the man who was the center of this bizzare hoax that lasted over two years.

    I am sure that when you were first contacted about this it must have been a shock to even imagine such a story, never mind having to deal with the frauds that were perpetrated by RT.

    If you have been following the various Forums that have people posting on this topic, you will probably have noted that some of them are a “bit out there” to say the least and probably the ones that give the subjects of UFOlogy and Exopolitics a bad name such as “being a bunch of nutters”, but I would like to assure you that a vast majority of these people are just normal people that have either experienced something strange themselves or know someone who has experienced something or are just interested in the subject and looking for truths.

    The owners and moderators of RU are clearly looking for truth and manage an upstanding Forum and provide indepth brilliant articles on many different subjects.

    Thank you for having the courage to come here and set the record straight! I’m sure it wasn’t an easy decision to make but it was the right thing to do and it is appreciated by many. :)

    Back in March 2008 I confronted Salla and co on the “Secret UN Meeting” nonsense with the help of Dr. Jacques Vallee. The resulting furball ended up on Victor Martinez elist (another dysfunctional soul IMHO). The email exchange including a response by Robert Morningstar may be read here:


    Of specific interest was this comment by RM:
    “If I may add…

    I think that the only person “sucker punched” here is Ted’s English teacher and Ted who seems to be taking it personally. By the way, Ted, if the “sucker punch” swells up and shows a bruise, try putting some Arnica on it. The swelling will come down immediately.
    (Just kidding :)”

    Funny how directly debunking his witness, Gilles Lorant, is not addressed at all and, instead, he goes for an adhominum type attack…

    Well, thanks to RU, our initial suspicions were spectacularly confirmed.

    Does anyone have RMs snail mail address so I can send him that tube of Arnica gel? He seems to need it far more than I (or my English teacher).
