Police: No Records of Walsh Pasulka January Hack

Three separate North Carolina law enforcement agencies were queried for incident reports stemming from Dr. Diana Walsh Pasulka's claims her email and social media accounts were recently hacked and that she reported it to police. Each of the three agencies responded no such records were located. 

The author of American Cosmic claimed her email and Twitter accounts were "hacked" on Jan. 10. She claimed similar two years ago. Her latest claims of hacked accounts came after a series of tweets which her followers indicated they found concerning and controversial. Walsh Pasulka later explained via social media she reported the hacking incidents to her "university IT Police, and Police (as I did two years ago). They are great and so helpful.":

In an attempt to locate incident reports, a request for corresponding public records was submitted to the University of North Carolina Wilmington Police Department. Walsh Pasulka is a faculty member at the university. 

Det. John W. Seay of the UNCW Police Department responded in a letter dated Jan. 30 that a review of the University Police Database failed to disclose any such reports concerning a Jan. 10 incident. The detective added that a report was filed by Walsh Pasulka regarding "suspicious emails" on Feb. 1, 2018, Case Number 201800112, "Location: Bear Hall," but no recent reports were found. No further information about the 2018 reported incident was included in the detective's response. 

A request was also submitted to the Wilmington Police Department. Copies of all incident reports and records pertaining to Diana Walsh Pasulka were sought, including any related to the January incident.

"[W]e have no such records in our files," Public Affairs Officer Linda Rawley Thompson of the Wilmington PD responded in a Jan. 29 email.

The New Hanover County Sheriff's Office was contacted by phone Feb. 3. Wilmington is located within New Hanover County. 

"I looked everywhere," Sergeant Olinger of the Sheriff's Office explained. It was possible a January incident report, if it existed, could be located if more identifying information was provided, such as a case number, but did not seem probable. The sergeant stated due diligence was given to the request but no records were found after trying several search methods most likely to produce results.

Dr. Walsh Pasulka was emailed and informed the three law enforcement agencies responded that no records were located pertaining to the Jan. 10 incidents. She was asked the names of the agencies to which she reported the circumstances. She was also offered an opportunity to comment for this blog post. Walsh Pasulka did not immediately respond.

A sample of tweets posted shortly prior to the author's most recent claim her email and social media accounts were hacked:

Walsh Pasulka, Nolan Decline Comment on Alleged Security Personnel


  1. Book sales must be going down the crapper.

    I started to listen to a podcast during which she was a guest when her book came out (I've forgotten which one, maybe Conspiranormal???). I listened for a little bit but shut it off because she seemed so flakey and ditzy in response to questions. After hearing her I decided against reading her book. Sorry to be so judgmental, but she didn't strike me as someone with two feet on the ground and anything substantive to offer. She presented herself such that "crazy cat lady" is the indelible image I was left with.

  2. Pretty interesting if she is lying about this. Looking forward to see if she provides any comment. Curious as to if you had a particular reason to follow up on this or just part of your process to verify claims when possible?

    1. She is just one of many characters who seem to have suddenly manifested themselves into ufology recently. Think of the others who have been hyped well beyond their actual value to subject in film, on podcasts and social media.....

      Everyone should wonder about DeLonge's words in 2016.....

      .....George Knapp is an multi-award winning Journalist, the one who famously broke the story of Area-51's existence many years ago. He's an incredible man. I've actually created a secondary advisory group with him included to help take the direction from my Primary Advisors and direct the info toward the youth.


      The people who the youth may think are delivering the truth are peddling in lies.

    2. Certainly agreed on that final point. Its become pretty disheartening to witness the sizable crowd of current UFO enthusiasts coming on board via the wave of flashy-but-very-bad documentaries such as the Bob Lazar one, The Seeding, etc... its also pretty disheartening to see so many "respectable" researchers taking these people seriously and regularly featuring them on their various shows/podcasts. Its becoming quite tough to give any weight to pretty much all the names within the UFO field these days

  3. Sounds like purrlgurrl is describing a useful idiot.

  4. Do you know if Palooka actually filed any charges?

  5. Does her book tell where are the great hordes of Templar gold are with a map at the back ? I'll buy it then return it ;)
