In early November of 1966, amid a flurry of UFO activity, a sewing machine salesman from West Virginia named Woodrow Derenberger was returning from a business trip to Marietta, Ohio, when he encountered one of the most bizarre and fascinating characters in Fortean history. Indrid Cold would not only come to be what Woody was known for. He would become a fixture in the life of the Derenberger family. Was he truly from another world? Was he one of the infamous Men in Black? Was this an imaginal creation? One thing we do know?
HE WAS A NICE GUY!
