On January 28th, 2003 Federal Agents arrested a 44-year-old man named Andrew Carlssin for major SEC violations. This included 126 suspicious high-risk stock market investments that turned $800 into $350,000,000 within a two-week period! Once in custody, he gave an astounding 4-hour confession that included the revelation that he was a time traveler from the year 2256! He went into detail about his “Time Craft” and extensive knowledge of the future. In fact, throughout his two-month incarceration, he gave a number of predictions that all turned out to be true. This included the March 20th, 2003 Invasion of Iraq by US Forces. A desperate Carlssin even offered to give useful information in exchange for his release. Such as information about the cure for AIDS and the location of Osama Bin Laden. He also agreed to let them examine his time machine if he could be present. Plausibly he planned to race inside and escape to the future! However, authorities branded him as a pathological liar and possibly a complete loon! They kept pressing Carlssin to reveal his real source of insider trading information. Still, he stuck to his time travel tale.
On March 29, 2003, a mysterious benefactor posted Andrew Carlssin’s one million dollar bail! He was released and at some point eluded the government’s continued surveillance of him. This was about the time that his claims were taken seriously by none other than the notoriously secret US Paranormal Defense Agency. The “off the books” agency under the US Department Of Defense that deals with the supernatural world. They became especially interested when investigators found no trace of Carlssin’s existence before 2002. In fact, his identification documents didn’t match filed records despite being verified as authentic. They were masterful forgeries beyond anything ever seen! On April 2nd, 2003 Andrew didn’t show up at his attorney’s office for a meeting about his scheduled court hearing on April 3rd. He never appeared at the hearing and was never seen ever again! The US Paranormal Defense Agency covered up the entire incident once it was classified as a true time travel event. In addition, his assets were completely seized by the government. Currently, there are no reputable sources left about the Time Traveler Andrew Carlssin. As part of the cover-up the story is being described as a fictional work by Weekly World News!
The Martian Time Travel Center
Mystic Investigations extensive research, including aid from top-flight psychics, reveals that Andrew Carlssin was a mental patient and Mars colonist from the 23rd century. He suffered from a complicated condition unique to those born on Mars. His psychologists had been making progress when he escaped from his care facility on Mars. He had been a former employee at a nearby complex working on time travel experiments. Carlssin managed to sneak in using his old ID and stole a spaceship capable of limited time travel. He had no idea how to use it and inadvertently ended up back in late 2002. There he decided to get rich with the knowledge contained within the ships historical database. He would hide in the past and live the sweet life. In his time money, nor an economy as we know it, existed. Unfortunately for him Time Cops from the 25th century eventually detected the primitive temporal anomaly of his time craft because he foolishly left it on for the entire time he was in the past! These Temporal Agents posted his one million dollar bail and returned him to his own time while confiscating the time craft. The Time Cops made contact with the Mars time experiment facility in 2256. They ordered them to cease all experiments until they shored up security and understood the true consequences of time travel!
Andrew Carlssin was cured of his mental condition within the next 5 years before being released. He was made to believe his time in the past was a delusion he suffered from since time travel was still a secret even in the 23rd century. Carlssin chose to leave Mars for a deep space interstellar mission that would take 100 years to complete. He spent the rest of his days exploring the stars for ever more!
