We send our condolences to his wife Mary and family in this very difficult time.

Sad news of the passing of Paul Vigay

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

Paul Vigays body was found washed ashore at Southsea, Portsmouth, Uk on Friday the 20th of February, 2009, not far from his home. He was reported missing at 11pm the evening before. Little is known as to the circumstances surrounding his death.

Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to Louie and Pauls family at this very sad time. This news comes as such a shock to all who knew him.

Paul was a long time researcher of cop circles and the paranormal and has been a friend to myself and my late husband, Dr Jonathan Sherwood, since we first met him in a crop circle opposite stonehenge in 1996.

Paul was a friendly face right from the start, full of boyish charm for all the mysteries to be explored with his wonderfull bag of gadgets. He had always been a good friend to us both, a kind, generous, and genuine person who always had a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye.

I remember some five or so years ago when my husband was experimenting with vortex energy and created a small scale grid network; it was fascinating that Paul was able to map it out with his electronic gadgets. He really was quite a remarkable, clever, and intelligent person. He was a unique individual within the crop circle community and will be sadly missed.

Rachel Sherwood & family.

In addition:

With so much saddness I decided to include the following link as it gave me a laugh and put a smile on my face. I was prowling through Pauls website and came across his researchers page filled with biographies - if you scoll down or work you way down to the bottom of the page to Pauls biography you will see what I mean, to get the full experience read his bio!
