Never Disappoint Bongo!
Over the last few months there has been many disappointments for the bigfoot community.

Ketchum DNA Study -
First lets look at the Dr. Ketchum DNA Study. A 5 year study with over 100 reported DNA samples from bigfoots. The study finally published in what some are calling Self Publishing. This only fueled the controversy over the study. The unknown part of the DNA was labeled as "Angel DNA" by some and was quickly tied to the Nelphlim, which links to the Bible. This was a target for many people, seeing that the bigfoot community has a large number of people who do not believe in God or the Bible, the attack was on.
Many scientist ripped the study and didn't support it, but a few scientist came out and supported the 5 year study and the published results. In the end you must ask yourself one question about this bigfoot DNA study, "Did the results of the DNA study prove or convince anyone, who did not already believe in bigfoot, that bigfoot is a real creature?"  To me that answer is No. Please don't get me wrong, I think there were many good and real bigfoot DNA samples in the study but it appears they have been wasted at this point.
I was glad about the bigfoot DNA study and had some hope for it, but in the end it was a disappointment for me and many in the bigfoot community. I do support the efforts of DNA study and hope that some good comes from all of it.

While checking out the Bigfoot Forums I ran across a topic about the Erickson video of Matilda the sleeping bigfoot. Bill Munns posted a very interesting photo comparison (featured above) of possible frames from the Matilda footage and a Chewbacca suit.

Here is what Mr. Munn had to say:
" It seems to me that this “infamous” Matilda is causing a lot of confusion and frankly, I’m tired of confusion and really would like to see progress toward clarity and truths we can rely upon.

So after considerable thought on the matter, I thought it’s time to try and make an effort to help clear up the confusion. The images I’m showing you are a few sample video frames I was given to analyze, and my conclusion was that the images shows a simple commercial Chewbacca mask with the hair modified to a different color and texture. The frames are each side-by-side with a picture of Chewie in about the same pose, for comparison.


With this posting, I cordially suggest the following:


1. If anyone wishes to publicly acknowledge that this is their footage, I invite them to do so, and if they are correct, I’ll acknowledge it to be true.


2. If anyone feels the video frames show a real creature and not a Chewbacca mask, I welcome their analysis of why we should consider that to be so.


3. If anyone has seen the “Matilda” footage, I invite you to let us know if this is or is not the footage you call “Matilda”, because maybe what I’m looking at isn’t her, and I welcome being corrected if that is so.


4. If my display of this chart causes anyone to feel that they should file some type of civil action against me, please have your lawyer contact me at   wmunns@gte.net   so we can set an appointment for my receiving the service of papers, and we can discuss the matter on the public record, in a court.


For the record, I will confidently and clearly offer an appraisal of evidence as being something real, if I truly find the evidence leads to that conclusion, and my appraisal of the PGF as being real supports that position. But as much as we must support what we find to be real or valid, we must also reject or discount what we find to be false or fake. Our obligation is to find the truth, and I think it’s time we all knew the truth about this “Matilda” thing. I finally decided it’s time I did my share to get the truth out.


So hopefully, someone who has seen the “Matilda” footage will tell us the truth. Is this her (pictured below), and is she real?


Bill"
 
- End Statement
 
 
Bill Munns is very respected and a true professional, so his opinion holds a lot of weight. Mr. Munns has also done extensive work on the famous Patterson "Patty" footage and concludes it to be a real bigfoot.
 
To find out more about Bill Munns and his work check out his website
 
So what could this all mean for the DNA Paper and the Erickson Videos? Well time will tell I guess but IF this is still frames of Matilda, then this is not a good thing for either the DNA paper or the Erickson videos.

Thanks

This was a very good interview and gives you some details on who help finance this study and also some more detail on how the study was conducted.
It's better to heard it straight from Dr. Ketchum.

Thanks goes to Candy over at Sasquatch Watch Canada for bringing this to our attention.

Over the last week there has been a war of words over the expected results and publishing of the Dr. Ketchum  Bigfoot DNA study. Supporters and those hopeful of the DNA study results have rallied in support of Dr. Ketchum, while some are still screaming it's all a hoax or that the study is flawed in some way. At times the attacks on Dr. Ketcum and Robin Lynne have been rather strong if not completely over the top.

So where does it all stand now? Well we know that the folks over at SasquatchThe Quest have updated their website to include information about the bigfoot DNA study and Media contact info. Adrian Erickson the leader/found of the Erickson project has been associated with the Ketchum DNA study for a long time now.
Erickson added the following to his website:

"The Erickson Project is a contributor of six Sasquatch DNA samples to Dr.Ketchum's study, all from diverse areas, one of those samples was used to sequence a complete Sasquatch genome in Dr. Ketchum's study. Specific information on the role of The Erickson Project will be released when her manuscript is published."

I would recommend that you go to the Erickson project website (Sasquatch The Quest) and read it first hand as there is more information on there that I did not cover.

What about the paper itself? Well despite what you might have heard or read the DNA paper is NOT rejected and over with. It is my understanding that at some point the paper was rejected and was needing to be rewritten, this was done and additional information was added and the paper resubmitted. It's also reported that the DNA paper is also in peer review in a Russian Journal.Who will publish it first is a good question. I would assume everyone would rather see it publish in an American journal because to many it would carry much more weight and be seen as more creditable ,but this is not to say a Russian publishing would be with out merit.     

Dr. ketchum issued this statement about the paper: "..it is in review, So far no indication of rejection..."

Ketchum has revealed some details about the study with statements like ".. Our nuclear is 3 genomes from three individuals and is 3 Terabytes of data..". 

If you do know much about Terabytes let me bring in some perspective to the actually size we are talking about. On 1 Terabyte you could put approximately 111 DVDs, if movies is not your thing about about music because you can put approximately 250,000 songs on 1 Terabyte, now times that by 3 and we are talking about a lot of data.

As it's reported right now the paper is in the final stages of peer review and is expected to pass. Once the paper is ready to publish or soon after it publishes we can expect a release of a stream of videos from the Erickson project or perhaps a all in one DVD type of release.

So what's in the Erickson Videos? Reportedly some of the videos are in HD and are shot at around 40-50 feet away from a living bigfoot. Some videos are reportedly not anywhere near HD quality but the subjects in the footage are believed to be real living,breathing bigfoot.
One video that was reportedly included in the Erickson Project videos was The Russian Bigfoot in the snow video, You can view it below.


So what now? Well we wait and watch for creditable information. Information will continue to leak out I'm sure of it. We have waited a long time now but I think we are getting closer to some kind closure (in this stage) concerning the Ketchum DNA Study. I do know that there are a lot of people with their reputations on the line with this study.
I will try to keep our site updated with creditable and truthful information  as it becomes available.

Thanks
Tom

Bigfoot DNA Paper coming soon?

It seems there is some "New" info and hope for the long talked about phantom Ketchum Bigfoot DNA study Paper.
For a long time now this DNA paper and study has seemed like a bigger myth than bigfoot itself, but is all of that about to change? Will some be eating Crow?

Dr. Igor Burtsev,
Head of International Center of Hominology in Moscow, Russia. Dr. Burtsev is well known for his research and support of the Janice Carter story, and his many years of research. The Janice Carter story may be better known as The Carter Farms Story and has been met with a lot of resistance over the years. Many have said bad things about Janice Carter but I found her to be a very nice and approachable person.

Today Igor Burtsev posted the following on his facebook page and it has caused a pretty big stir.
-Start
"The DNA analysis of the Bigfoot/Sasquatch specimen conducted by Dr. Melba Ketchum the head of DNA Diagnostics, Timpson, TX, USA has been over!
Team of American scientists led by Dr. Melba Ketchum for five years has analyzed 109 purported samples of such creatures. The study has sequenced DNA of a novel North American hominin, commonly called Bigfoot or Sasquatch.
There were a large number of laboratories associated with this study including academic, private and government laboratories in which blind testing was utilized to avoid prejudice in testing. Great time and care was taken in the forensic laboratories to assure no contamination occurred with any of the samples utilized in this study.
After 5 years of this study the scientists can finally answer the question of what sasquatch really is. It is human like us only different, a hybrid of a human with unknown species. Early field research shows that the Bigfoot/Sasquatches are massively intelligent which has enabled them to avoid detection to a large extent. They are different than us, however human nonetheless.
The hybridization event could not have occurred more than 15000 years ago according to the mitochondrial data in some samples. Origin of this hominin was probably Middle Eastern/Eastern Europe and Europe originally though other geographic areas are not excluded.
The manuscript associated with this study has been submitted to a scientific reviewed magazine.
For years people have refused to believe they exist. Now that we know that they are real, it is up to us to protect them from those that would hunt or try to capture them for research or for sport. They should be left alone to live as they live now. After all, they are our relatives.
At this time, analysis of the Sasquatch genomes is still ongoing. Further data will be presented in the future following this original study. Additionally, analysis of various hair samples purportedly from Siberian Wildman are being tested in an effort to determine if relatedness exists between the Sasquatch and Russian Wildman."
-End

While this may get many overly excited it is important to remember there is nothing really new in his statement. Almost all of that info has already been posted at one point or another.
While I have great respect for Igor and find him a very nice guy, we must remember that there has been numerous attempts from Russia of reported proof of bigfoot. Lets not forget the totally bogus "captured bigfoot" video from a few months back. None of which Igor was involved in to my knowledge.  

One good thing about Igor's statement is that it got Dr. Melba Ketchum to issues a statement. Which she has not done in a long time.

Here is Dr. Ketchum's statement.
-Start
"It is unfortunate that the partial summary of our data was released in this manner, however, I will be making a formal response in the next few days. Even though Igor Burtsev released this, it was not Dr. Burtsev's fault."
-End

All this posting and confirming has got the bigfoot world back buzzing about the DNA Paper.
While I will remain skeptical, I am hopeful that the paper is real and will be published at some point. If you think about it Robert Lindsay posted most of this, if not all of it, months ago.

There are many researchers I like and respect associated with this DNA paper. Many of these researchers have DNA samples reportedly in the Ketchum DNA study. Here are just a few of the people reportedly to have samples or a hand in the study: Randy Brisson,JC johnson,Scott Carpenter,Derek Randles,Larry Surface,Justin Smeja and more.

If  this is true and we are really close to the DNA results being published, then it would be safe to assume that the also long awaited Erickson Project Videos will be released in the near future as well.

This DNA study has been ongoing  for roughly 5 years with little or no solid info released to the public, maybe all that is about to change but after this amount of time I will continue to be skeptical but hopeful. I will not get overly excited until I can see some real published results and not just some random facebook posts. I find that after all this time I'm more excited about the Erickson Project videos than the DNA study. I probably will not understand much of the DNA results anyways but HD video should be easy enough to discern. I just hope they don't try to sell the DNA paper as "The Missing Link".
So while at least there is some movement on the whole DNA Paper, we are still left in the same state we've been in for years now...waiting. 

Thanks
Tom

Sketch by Larry Surface of Matilda from the Erickson project Video




The Erickson Project
by TCC Team Members Dorriane Fisher & Thomas Marcum

            The Erickson Project, an investigation project into the existence of the creature commonly known as Bigfoot or Sasquatch, was started in 2005 by Adrian Erickson. It was the first long-term project to attempt to prove the existence of these creatures once and for all. It serves to take into account thousands of sightings around North America, give credence to those who were brave enough to report them, to get the scientific community involved in the search, and bring awareness to the public. 
            Erickson had his first encounter with the creature at seven years of age near his home in British Columbia in 1959, and several subsequent sightings thereafter. He was finally motivated to found the project when a sasquatch crossed the road in front of him in the Canadian Rockies in 2001.
            The project has continued its quest for proof ever since, offering all kinds of evidence to the scientific community before realizing that only DNA evidence would be its ticket to mainstream science.

Randy's shoe print on the right.
Randy Brisson is one of my favorite bigfoot/sasquatch researchers to post about and follow. Recently on his facebook page he posted several photos of some young sasquatch tracks his crew found. They also made casts of some of the prints. I ask Randy about how old would he guess the creature was that made these tracks and he gave me the following reply
They were young, One was older, maybe 9 or 10, there was 2 prints about 4 inches, so that was real young."
Here is some more info he posted about the tracks:
"The tracks came out of the bush and crossed the wet mud, and then back into the bush, 3 of them, about 5 inch, to 8 inch tracks, maybe went 20 ft out of the bush and then back in."
So another great find by Randy, it seems he is always finding good stuff. I was glad when he was added to the list of contributors on The Erickson Project website a few months back. In my mind that only adds to the creditability of the Erickson Project it's self. 
Here is a picture of the cast made.
Cast of a young squatch print
Thanks goes to Randy for sharing his great find of sasquatch prints and for his efforts in the bigfoot community. More photos are available on his facebook page.
Thanks
Tom

Richard Stubstad posted some interesting info on Robert Lindsay Blog about the DNA paper and Erickson videos.
here they are-
 Committing about the DNA paper-
"Assuming the “end of February” is valid (and I don’t know that it is), the scenario will play out as follows:
The paper publication will be announced, and probably be made available on-line if not on paper. A simultaneous announcement of a press conference (on a major TV network) will be made. By necessity, this will have to be made at least 24 hours in advance, maybe longer — similar to the press conference that Biscardi announced when he was hoaxed beyond belief by the “Georgia Boys” on CNN back in 2008.
A partial release at the same time of the Erickson footage is likely but not guaranteed. Since Paulides, followed by Biscardi, followed by me, followed by Java Bob, were there before Erickson, I assume that Paulides will also be included.
Meanwhile, according to Ketchum three of us are still in the proverbial dog house (Biscardi, Stubstad, and Java Bob), so I can almost tell you with certainty none of us will be there.
Meanwhile, I don’t know how to keep track of press conference announcements; Bob, can you do this, please, and post the announcement–assuming the end of February is actually valid?
Richard"

Then someone ask him the following question -
"Richard, have you seen the “Matilda” footage? If so can you say what your impressions of it were?"

Richard Stubstad replied -
"I probably have, but I was exceedingly polite and didn’t ask any leading questions; I just watched–I kind-of shortened version made into a fairly good documentary of maybe 45 minutes.
While I probably saw “Matilda”, I only heard this name on this particular blog, so I’m not sure. I do know though that ALL the footage shown (cuts from several locations, both day and night) was kick-ass. The one exception to this was (in my humble opinion) the “pancake video”, which was the worst of the bunch. I’m not saying it was faked; I’m just saying it was too dark to make any intelligent judgements about its authenticity.
Richard"

So maybe this will come off in due time, there seems to be some good people making comments about what they know or have saw concerning the DNA paper and the Erickson projects. I just hope I'm still alive when this all finally hits the fan.
  
Matilda
Is the famous Matilda footage in Adrian Erickson’s video hoaxed?
It’s a shocking question, and one that must be seriously considered. The footage in question was shot by the wife of “Bob,” the owner of the property, as she was wearing a ghillie suit. She snuck up on Matilda, an adolescent female Bigfoot, and shot a short HD videotape of her walking towards the camera.The sexy teen Bigfoot approaches the camera, and you can see a closeup of her face, which is said to look like a Chewbacca. Soon the Bigfoot recognizes she is being photographed and growls at the photographer. When she does, you can see fanged incisors. Many observers think these fangs are strange, but many reports say that Bigfoots have long incisor teeth or fangs.
However, on Bigfoot Forums, Bill Munns said he was asked to review a videotape from the Erickson Project, presumably from Kentucky, that may have been thought by the EP to have been faked. Munns reviewed it carefully and said it was a modified Chewbacca mask, but it was very well done. So the rumors are flying that the Matilda footage is Chewie mask and therefore the best EP footage in the video is a hoax.
We can breathe a sigh of relief.

This is what happened:
When Erickson bought the property, about 5 videotapes came with the deal, all shot by the owners. Erickson also purchased these videos for a pretty sum, but he did so with the proviso that if any were proven fakes, there would be no money paid for those fakes.
Of the 5 videos, 4 were thought to be genuine. These included the footage of Matilda sleeping in the woods and the famous footage of Matilda walking towards the camera described above. However, the first video, an early video, was revealed to be a fake, possibly with the help of Munns. No money was paid for that video. The other four videos were shot later.

[Via Robert Lindsay Blog ]
Clip from Adrian Erickson video is on Youtube!
Yes, one of the video clips used in the Erickson video is already on Youtube and has been watched by many people. I got this great information from a new anonymous source in Texas. The clip is of the Russian Yeti filmed in the Kuzbass region of Russia. It was released last year. Here is a good breakdown from Tom at the Crypto Crew -


Erickson is apparently including not only his own footage but also other footage from all over the world which he may have purchased the rights to. Erickson thinks that Yetis are related to Bigfoots, and that’s why he wants footage from all over the world to make that point. That’s why the video is in Hollywood right now, because Erickson wants a professional edit job done with all this other footage, good descriptions, etc.
The stars of the show of course are the Crittenden, Kentucky Bigfoots, but there are also many others, and all the footage is good. However, the footage does vary in quality in terms of what the Bigfoots are doing. The baby Bigfoot eating a pancake video from Crittenden is also included.
The movie starts out with the less impressive footage and then progressively works its way up to the cream of crop of the Crittenden Bigfoots such as Matilda and the large male who is 9-12 feet tall. There is also an excellent video of an Asian Yeti in the movie. As far as a release date on the movie, all I have is “soon.”
 
TCC - Well we have always thought this was a real sasquatch, so maybe our analysis will be validated in the end. Thanks to Robert for sharing our video breakdown and giving us some credit.

Adrian Erickson’s habituation sites and results. All of this information has been previously discussed by me (Robert Lindsay), so we are not revealing anything new here.

There were five sites:

Golden Ears Provincial Park, British Columbia: Active, hair gathered, video apparently shot.

Hair Samples

Crittenden, Kentucky: Inactive, blood and tissue gathered, video shot. Site of the famous Matilda the Sleeping Bigfoot photo. Numerous Bigfoots were present, including a huge male, an older Mom with two young ‘uns and a hottie Bigfoot teen Mom named Matilda.
Matilda the sleeping bigfoot

Possible blood sample from KY


Eastern Tennessee: Carter Farm. Inactive, biological sampling unknown, video unknown.

Photo from Carter Farm


Alabama, location unknown: Inactive, biological sampling unknown, possible video.


Texas, location unknown: Inactive, biological sampling unknown, possible video.
[Via Robert Lindsay Blog]
TCH - I hope in the near future there will be some more info on the Alabama and Texas sites, but for now everything seems to be on course. Most if not all the info above has been confirmed in one way or another. Many of the people involved are excited and it's all they can do to contain themselves and this is why some info is being leaked. Some of it is being posted on facebook by some of the people who was there and have pictures, others involved in other ways are backing them up on statements made. So all in all there seems to be a constant trickle of info,which is a good thing.

Matilda the sleeping bigfoot was pregnant
No more Erickson Project leaks for some time into the future. We have been more or less ordered by the EP to stop leaking information about their project.
We normally blow this sort of stuff off with a guffaw, a willful gesture or two, a snarky remark, a gulp of wine and a round of air guitar, but now several of our EP sources are in serious hot water as the EP is undertaking a serious counterespionage operation, and the only way to save my sources is to stop printing the leaks. There won’t be much to print anyway, as my sources are suddenly being afflicted with selective mutism when they talk to me.
So unfortunately, you are not going to find much juicy EP news from us for some time into the future. If I can dig up anything on my own from public information, I will do so, but there won’t be anything more from my sources. I will also continue to report on news about Erickson that has already been reported, but there will no new leaked information from my EP sources.
******
Crittenden, Kentucky leak. It’s been suggested that my EP sources leaked that location, one of the EP’s habituation sites, to me. This is not true. They never told me the locations of any EP habituation sites. I found out the Crittenden, Kentucky location and in fact the exact address by doing some elaborate Internet sleuthing all by myself, of which I will not divulge the details. Bottom line is I figured out that location 100% on my own, with no help from my EP sources.
******
Matilda the EP’s sleeping Sasquatch. The widely disseminated photo of Matilda, the sleeping Bigfoot from Kentucky, has generated a lot of controversy. We can now tell you that in 2005, possibly around the time of that video and certainly around the time of the other video where she approaches the camera, Matilda become pregnant. After those videos were shot, she had a baby Bigfoot. This information comes to us from an interview with Mary Green on the Internet.

Possible early release date for Ketchum DNA Study. Several lines of evidence seem to be converging around a possible early release date for Dr. Melba Ketchum’s Bigfoot DNA study.
1. Sequencing of the Bigfoot nuclear genome. There was a rumor around November 1 that the team was ready to finalize the sequencing of the entire Bigfoot nuclear DNA genome. Approximately one month later, Ketchum released an optimistic but cryptic comment on her Facebook page about some remarkable recent progress.
The nuclear genome was only partially done in the early days of the study. For instance, the MC1R gene that we discussed earlier has about 1,000 polymorphisms. Of those, only ~400-500 had been done by the time that our source released data to us.
There are many reasons that make full sequencing of the nuclear genome a difficult task. The main one is the use of primers. Human primers were initially used for the nuclear DNA, but since Bigfoots are not humans, the team soon ran into a lot of problems with the use of human primers. That is, human primers simply did not cut it for Bigfoot nuclear DNA. So the team had to invent their own new primers, and this is an immensely complicated task. Further, sequencing has to be run repeatedly, sometimes even backwards. In a phrase, it’s a great big mess.

After a year or so of messing around with all these problems, the team has apparently ironed out all of the kinks. After Wally Hersom may have given the go-ahead for the funding for the entire nuclear genome around November 1, I estimate that it may have taken ~1 month to get it done. That coincides remarkably with Ketchum’s optimistic Facebook release on December 1.
2. A cryptic comment on Ketchum’s Facebook page on December 3, only two days after the possible completion of the nuclear sequencing. Here it is:
For all of the people speculating on the Erickson project, Adrian and I have agreed to set aside the NDA to tell you that his group is a successful participant in this project. His research project to obtain the DNA samples is separate from us. His samples will be in the paper along with all of the successful submitters. And, yes, his great footage will come out so lets let all of the rumors go, OK? And once again, please know that we are at the mercy of the journal as to when we can announce. Thanks!
The phrase to watch here is:
And once again, please know that we are at the mercy of the journal as to when we can announce.


What you must believe if you don’t believe in the Sierra Kills story. The Sierra Kills story says that two Bigfoots were shot and killed in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains on October 8, 2010. It is known that afterwards, the man who shot the Bigfoots sent in a slice of hairy, human-looking thigh (the Bigfoot steak) to Ketchum’s DNA project. It is known that the thigh initially tested positive on MtDNA as “100% human.” Later rumors said that the thigh had tested as Bigfoot on nuclear DNA via eight separate labs.
A very large number of people, Bigfoot believers and skeptics both, think that the story is utterly ridiculous. Let us leave aside the rumors about nuclear DNA for a moment. It’s well known that Ketchum herself told observers that the thigh tested 100% human on MtDNA.


So after The Erisckson Project website was shut down a few weeks ago and all the rumors flying around about how Adrian Erickson and Melba Ketchum hate each other and are at odds, we finally get a statement on it all by Dr. Melba ketch um Herself.

Here is the New Statements from Dr. Melba Ketchum -
"For all of the people speculating on the Erickson project, Adrian and I have agreed to set aside the NDA to tell you that his group is a successful participant in this project.
His research project to obtain the DNA samples is separate from us. His samples will be in the paper along with all of the successful submitters. And, yes, his great footage will come out so lets let all of the rumors go, OK? And once again, please know that we are at the mercy of the journal as to when we can announce. Thanks!"


Then Someone made a Negative statement about the Erickson Project on Melba's facebook page about EP not having anything and Melba replied with "oh he has the goods" 

So it appears all is well and everything is still a go. It makes me wonder if The Erickson Project people will now start talking a little or maybe even show the videos to everyone. If everything is as stated then the final proof of bigfoot will be nailed to the wall in a matter of a few more months.
It will be nice to finally have 100 percent proof,Which I think there already is proof, of the existents of
bigfoot. Really the DNA evidence is just to convince the skeptics, for most of us there is already more than enough evidence that proves that bigfoot is a real creature.

Bigfoot News November 19, 2011

Update on the Erickson Project. There has been much speculation on why Erickson took down his site. There are theories flying all over the Internet. The truth should be easy enough to figure out by the process of logical thinking and elementary deduction. In fact, there may well be some very smart folks barking up the right tree as I write this. The EP is not over, through, done, a “fiasco,” or any of those things. Erickson just has a lot more important things to deal with right now than this Bigfoot stuff, which is after all, just a hobby.

This article in the Osoyoos Times of Osoyoos, British Colombia makes it clear what is going on. Erickson’s business has very serious problems, to put it mildly. It’s nearly underwater due to the lousy economy, and he just isn’t selling lots anymore.
Apparently residents were promised paved roads, phone hookups, cellphone service, oil and gas wells, water wells, electricity and all sorts of amenities. Many of these have been delivered only partially, or in some cases not at all. Apparently Erickson lacks the funds to provide these amenities to his residents. As a consequence, he is now being sued by some of the folks who bought his lots.
It’s all a great big mess, and Erickson is under a lot of stress. I doubt if he is in great shape psychologically. After all, stress is hard on the psyche. Whether it’s effecting him physically, I don’t know, but I hope not. What’s sad about all of this is that Erickson is a genuinely nice guy. Looking around at the slimepit that is Bigfootery, it’s clear that Erickson is way too good for this field.
Anyway, as you can see, Erickson has problems up the wazoo. Bigfootery is the last thing from his mind these days.

 Robert Lindsay Gives update on the Erickson project and melba Ketchum.



Hello, Erickson is the one person remaining associated with Ketchum who signed one of her old and fair NDA's. I don't know what Erickson was thinking when they got involved with her. You know, this was supposed to be a big partnership with all involved. They all met in various places, including one place in the US where they may have met with media people and attorneys. Ketchum made an extremely bad showing in front of all of the 3rd parties. It was all about her, and she was going to run the whole show, right from the beginning. Nobody liked her at all, but they were all stuck with her, as she was the only one who would do the DNA work.

The relationship with Erickson fell out when he would not sign her new fancy NDA's. He still will not sign her new fancy NDA's, and she is always trying to get him to sign the new NDA. Her whole game is contingent on everyone signing her fancy new NDA, and he won't sign, so this is holding her up.
The 2 projects are tied together legally. Erickson cannot release his video without her DNA at the same time. She cannot release her DNA without his video at the same time. If she releases DNA without his video, he can sue her. If he releases video without her DNA, she can sue him.

UPDATE IS AFTER THE BREAK!

It Appears The Erickson Project has taken down their website at sasquatchthequest.com - Rumor is that the project is pulling out of the whole sasquatch project for the time being due to Adrian Erickson becoming frustrate about "experts" backpedaling when it comes to support for the project - because of fear of ridicule by their "peers".
So now we must ask what about the videos of Matilda the bigfoot? What will happen to them? will they be released at all now?

There has been some who have already seen these videos and here is some info about them.
*the videos are in High Definition
*The second video is the amazing one that only a few special people got to see. It is 14 seconds of a closeup HD footage of Matilda’s face.
*The sleeping bigfoot picture was part of a  5 minute clip, towards the end, she starts to become alarmed at something, and then she starts to wake up.
