John A. Keel in 2002, shown here during the release of The Mothman Prophecies motion picture.
The news on 76-year-old John A. Keel’s recovery from his heart attack is good.
Just in from Doug Skinner…
I just spoke with Keel. He had the operation yesterday, but is doing fine, and is due to be released tomorrow. I’ll be meeting him at the hospital, and helping him get back home and stock up on groceries.
The prognosis is good!
Many thanks to confirmations and news via John Frick, Mark Pilkington, and George Hansen.
