The Janice Carter Connection
Salley Ramey Sets The Record Straight
By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher
There have been many rumors swirling around about Sally Ramey, Dr. Melba Ketchum’s former publicist, and her association with Janice Carter of the controversial Carter Farm bigfoot stories. Janice Carter Coy, as she was known then, became a prominent figure in the case for bigfoot when she shared some striking details about the creatures for a National Geographic special from having spent years with them living near her farm in Tennessee. Some of those details have been found to be valid by other researchers, and she was known to have had associations with Russian hominologist, Dr. Igor Burtsev, and Will Duncan. But when she proclaimed the creatures spoke a language, albeit English, it sent many in the bigfoot world to question her validity. And it’s left anyone who has associated with her, like Sally Ramey, to also come under scrutiny. So with so many untruths circulating about her, Sally felt it necessary to set the record straight about her relationship to the Carter case. This is her statement to The Crypto Crew:
“In 2008, I met Janice Carter at Don Keating’s Bigfoot Conference at Salt Fork State Park in Ohio. I subsequently visited her in Tennessee a few times and went into the field with her. During these visits I heard many vocalizations, but never saw a Bigfoot.
During one of these visits, I learned that Jan and her little girl had fallen on hard times and were about to become homeless. She had no family support, no means of supporting herself, and after contacting all local public services, nowhere to go. She had always claimed to have multiple health issues, and I can confirm that this was true. I also witnessed unusual symptoms that concerned me.
I provided Jan and her daughter with a home for more than two years. I helped Jan get medical attention that confirmed an undiagnosed brain injury from a brutal beating she had received several years before. This is referenced on her Facebook page in one of her notes. I supported Jan and her child while she received proper medical care and pursued therapy as well as disability benefits. They now live with Jan’s fiance in Tennessee.
During my association with Jan, we did field research with a number of individuals in four states. We also made several attempts to visit Fox (the bigfoot Janice claimed to have spoken to before) – all failures.
The last attempted visit was in the summer of 2010, when Jan believed Fox to be ill. No one else was there – just me, Jan and her daughter. We heard one distant whoop. Nothing else happened and we left to visit with her fiance.
It has been a long time since I have heard from Jan and she is rarely active on FB.
While I stand by my own experiences, I make no claims re:[regarding] Jan's experiences and can only report what she told me about her family's habituation history.”
