HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Dr. Jesse Marcel Jr., who said he handled debris from the 1947 crash of an unidentified flying object near Roswell, N.M., has died. He was 76.

Denice Marcel said her father was found dead at his home in Helena on Saturday, less than two months after his last visit to Roswell.

Marcel's father was reportedly the first military officer to investigate the Roswell wreckage. Marcel Jr. said he was 10 when his father brought some of the debris home and woke him up so he could see it because it was something he'd never see again.

Denice Marcel says her father wanted people to know that the Roswell incident was real and the cover-up needed to stop.
