Melchiades [mel-kahy-uh-deez] “Mel” Fabregas was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and is of Spanish descent. From a very young age, Mel had an insatiable curiosity for knowledge and an overdeveloped sense of wonder, based on a number of paranormal experiences. He lives by the following motto: “I would rather have a mind open by wonder than one closed by belief.” and “Be skeptical, but don’t close your mind.” Mel has a bachelor’s degree in finance (BBA) from Florida International University in Miami and a master’s degree in international business administration (MBA) from the University of Texas at Dallas. At the age of 20, while working for a Fortune 500 company (D&B), Mel became the youngest financial analyst in the organization, where he served from 1987 to 1999. Prior to his long-term corporate career Mel worked in television as a child actor, retail, banking, and even with McDonnell Douglas. Throughout his career, he lived and traveled the United States, Latin America, and Asia. During one of his assignments, Mel lived in Mexico City (92/93) during the implementation of NAFTA. There, Mel met a woman who foretold his future with incredible accuracy. At the time, being an open-minded skeptic, Mel dismissed the information. But as time went by and each prediction materialized, Mel could no longer ignore the information. In 1999 Mel left corporate America and became an entrepreneur in the hospitality, wholesale, and real estate industries; and most recently, — by accident — he is now involved in media broadcasting. Among all the predictions shared with Mel in Mexico, the last prediction said: “One day you will inform the world.” In late November 2008 Mel’s life would never be the same. Mel had a dream in which he saw the words “Take Action” repeatedly throughout the dream. Mel was compelled to turn on the television that morning. Every news outlet was reporting that the British Ministry of Defense, after 50 years of secrecy, had declassified information about an Air Force pilot with the name of Milton Torres who was stationed in England in 1957. One night, Torres and his wingman were ordered to scramble their jets and shoot down an unidentified flying object (UFO) the size of an aircraft carrier. Mel continued switching channels and was surprised to see that every news outlet had Torres on. It was as if the international media descended on Torres but no one allowed him the time to elaborate on his fascinating and very important story. All of a sudden, the dream made sense to Mel. “Take Action” meant that Mel needed to interview Torres. Mel found Torres’ telephone number, but before proceeding to make contact, he knew he had to represent a media outlet. Mel turned to his wife for her creative assistance. He asked her for a radio show name that would encompass the topics of UFOs, the paranormal, conspiracies, etc., to which Mel’s wife uttered the word “VERITAS.” Mel proceeded to speak with Milton Torres on behalf of “The Veritas Show” and arranged an “interview.” After Mel recorded the interview, he made it available on Friday, December 5, 2008 at a number of alternative news internet forums. To his surprise, thousands of people around the world listened to what seemed to be a radio program, when in reality it was supposed to be a souvenir telephone call for Mel. People kept writing to Mel asking when the next “show” was going to air. That’s when “Take Action” took a new and deeper meaning. The Veritas Show was born. Since December 2008 Mel has interviewed the who’s who of UFOlogy, conspiracies, paranormal, alternative news/history/archeology/health, and more. Mel has appeared on History Channel’s Brad Meltzer’s Decoded, several domestic and international radio shows, and has served as master of ceremonies and moderator at a number of related events. VERITAS’ main purpose is to probe the depths of the hidden and obscured issues that affect the very core of humanity today and to find the answers to the primordial questions. Mel lives in Tucson, Arizona with his wife and daughter.
