Amazing People from Lubbock County Texas
Jim Marrs

Born Dec. 5, 1943 in Fort Worth, Marrs moved to Lubbock, Texas in the 60's and received his graduate degree from Texas Tech University. He began his career in journalism in Lubbock where he worked as a reporter, editor and photographer for the Lubbock Avalanche Journal; and also became editor of the Lubbock Sentinel. He was an investigative journalist and book author who focused on cover ups, so-called conspiracies and ancient aliens mysteries..


From the JFK Assassination, to Secret Societies, Marrs focused on the hidden truth. His work was treasured all over the world and books like Alien Agenda: Investigating the Extraterrestrial Presence Among Us and Our Occulted History: Do the Global Elite Conceal Ancient Aliens? are essential reading for anyone wanting to understand more about extraterrestrial theory.  In 1989, his book, Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy, was published to critical acclaim and reached the New York Times Paperback Non-Fiction Best Seller List. It became a basis for the Oliver Stone film JFK.


Other books by Marrs include Psi Spies, Rule by Secrecy, The Terror Conspiracy Revisited, The Rise of the Fourth Reich, The Trillion-Dollar Conspiracy, Our Occulted History, Population Control, and his last book The Illuminati. His books develop in great detail conspiracy theories and hidden truths largely ignored by mainstream news organizations.


Marrs spent the later part of his career in Springtown Texas in Parker and Wise County.


Marrs appeared on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, C-SPAN, The Discovery Channel, TLC, The History Channel, Alex Jones Show, This Morning America, Geraldo, The Montel Williams Show, Today, TechTV, Larry King, Coast to Coast AM (with George Noory and Art Bell) radio programs, as well as numerous national and regional radio and TV shows.


In March 2017, an announcement was made on Marrs' official Facebook page about an unspecified illness that caused him to cancel appearances at two upcoming events, the 5th annual Out of this World UFO Conference in Edinburg, Texas, and the Free Your Mind Conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, both in April.

In June 2017, additional announcements were made about health issues Marrs was experiencing, including being on kidney dialysis at home, and problems with his remaining good eye.

Jim Marrs died on August 2, 2017, from a heart attack at age 73.
