Roswell, New Mexico - Conspiracy theorists have worked themselves into a lather over rumors that Michael Jackson was spotted outside a building in Area 51. Hundreds of conspiracy theorists have descended on Roswell in the last 48 hours and the number is expected to climb into the thousands.
Unsurprisingly, stalls have quickly sprung up with locals spruiking Michael Jackson memorabilia. These items range from small children dressed as monkeys to 'skin-bleaching' cream.
The mayor of Roswell appeared briefly and made the following statement, "I would like to state for the record that there is no truth to the rumor that Michael Jackson is alive and wandering around in Area 51. I have spoken to a CIA official who assured me that an experimental weather balloon had likely given off a reflection that appeared to resemble Michael Jackson".
It is unlikely that this statement will put the rumours to bed. As one visitor stated, "The real question is why is Jackson even here? Some of us believe that the aliens who are here want to talk to Michael because they believe he is also an alien. I certainly hope so because no one else can save the world from alien attack".
