Granger Taylor was known in Duncan, British Columbia, for his awkwardness (despite his bulky physical appearance). He was also known for his ability to give new life to machines. Granger also had a reputation for his fixation on aliens, spurred by pop culture's obsession with the phenomena and a possible UFO sighting at a nearby hospital. When he disappeared on November 29, 1980, few were surprised to see aliens referenced as the reason for his departure, with the 32-year-old claiming he was going on a "42-month interstellar voyage" with them.
Did authorities really find fragments of him and his truck at a nearby blast site, or was that just a ruse concocted by Granger and the aliens to mask his departure from Earth? Friends and family are divided on what really happened to the genius young man with the alien obsession.
