Shockingly Tragic Loss of Paul Vigayme
Friday morning I was
expecting to hear from Paul after exchanging a number of
e-mails during the week about the 1989
Cheesefoot Head sound
for me. I was looking out for his anticipated message
when I received an e-mail
from Kerry McKenna with Paul's name in the subject line.
Instead of the reply I
was expecting from Paul it was the shocking news that
his body had been
washed up in the English Channel at Southsea, near where
Like many of my research colleagues and friends I am
deeply shocked and upset
at this terrible loss.
Paul was reliable and trusted by all of his friends and
others who knew him. A
genuinely nice person and a highly intelligent young
We had carried out a number pf projects together over
the years, since I first met
him at the launch of 'Circular Evidence' near Winchester
in 1989. Paul met me
there with his lovely mother, who could hardly contain
her love for him. I could
see where his gentle nature came from.
He visited my home in Andover several times with every
electronic gadget known
to man and even more amazing was that he knew how they
I wondered if I should share a strangeness in our final
correspondence this week
and believe there is no harm in doing so. I shared this
with my friend Dave Haith
a short while ago.
It was as if we knew we were saying goodbye to each
One day before Paul was reported missing, Wednesday (Feb
18th) in what was
to be the last e-mail from Paul at 3.41 pm (UK), he
.............."Anyway, keep up the good work, and I'm
sure that those genuine
seekers for the truth will be able to wade through the
various arguments and
politics, if they don't get fed up in the meantime! -
Best regards Paul".
My reply to him and the last e-mail sent read:
"Paul, I want you to know its the open and fair way you
conduct yourself that I
admire and tell others about. I so appreciate and like
your approach. I cant see
how anyone would find a problem with that approach but
as we both know,
somehow they do.......OK, have a good one Paul. Colin"
At around 7.0 pm US Eastern time, Mid-night in England,
I went to the barn to
feed our animals and had the most eerie feeling, of
quiet peace, also of a
presence. This very strange feeling is one Ive had
before when terrible things
like this have happened. I came back to our house and
told my wife about the
feeling. I later learned that this was one hour after
Paul was reported missing.
Below is a statement by Paul posted on his website which
speaks to the nature of
