An extraterrestrial sighting has been reported in east El Paso. There has been a crash landing by an out worldly object in the desert terrain of the far east. The area has been secured with high caution and is being referred to by locals as Area 52. Civilians should beware -- the crash site contained a demolished flying object, however it is apparent that unearthly beings have fled and are still lurking in the area…
