UFO Reported by Matthew OBrien to The Crypto Hunters

Matthew OBrien sent us the follow UFO report. The pictures are ones that he took.
(please do not use photo without TCH permission)
Date of UFO sighting - 8/4/2011
Place - Seattle in Daytime
Witness - Matthew O'brien

Here is the Report-

It was a perfectly clear day here in Seattle.  I spotted the little silver line in the sky and ran inside to get the camera.  Of course, it was gone by the time I got back.  But I waited around, camera in hand.  The spot where I saw it kept 'growing' clouds.  They would appear for a minute then shrink and go away,  and then come back in a few minutes.
It was very odd.  Like I said, no other clouds in the sky.

So finally, after a while, the silver line showed up again and I got 5-6 shots of it.  It would appear in the same spot, move about 15 degrees to the right, and then disappear again.  It did this several times.  It was way, way up there, and not in the regular flight path that airplanes use to go into Sea-Tac.
It didn't move very fast, it probably took 15 seconds or so to move the little bit.  No sounds.  I'd say, it was visible for at least a minute over the course of all the appearing and disappearing.  I've seen similar photos of just a silver line like it on UFO TV documentaries.
Also wanted to note that the Blue Angels were in Seattle that day, but about 20 miles south of my place.
I didn't see the Blue Angels, but could hear them off in the distance.
I live in the U-district in Seattle, which is in the north-east part of town.
The UFO was to my north and east.

The Mutual UFO Network -- the largest privately funded UFO research organization in the world -- tells The Huffington Post that more people than ever are reporting unidentified flying objects, mostly in the United States and Canada.

"Over the past year, we've been averaging 500 sighting reports a month, compared to about 300 three years ago [67 percent]," MUFON international director Clifford Clift said.
"And I get one or two production companies contacting me every week, wanting to do stories on UFOs."

So far this week, mysterious aerial lights in Laredo, Texas, and Kansas City, MO., lived up to, at least initially, the strict definition of UFOs, namely "Unidentified" Flying Objects.

In the case of the Kansas City sighting, the UFOs are side to be the Army Golden Knights parachuting team, performing a nighttime jump,but this explanation is not accepted by everyone.

TCH - I have made an effort to enhance the photo released by the Erickson project. Still not much detail, the hair kind of looks funny to us but time will tell I guess.
With this new photo, we decided to ask a question on our facebook site (www.facebook.com/thecryptohunters), and that question is
"The Erickson Project will trun out to be?"
1. 100 percent real!
2. A hoax
3. Some truths and some lies.
(Feel free to reply with a vote)

On our facebook site the one with the most votes is # 2. A hoax.
We sure hope this is not a hoax and everything the Erickson people are saying is real,but in the world of  Bigfoot hunting you never know until the end. We will be keeping an eye on  this and other big name projects...if we can provide info showing it's real or a hoax we will do so.

Thanks and Happy Hunting!

The Erickson Project -
Frame grab from an Erickson Project video, Sasquatch: The... Quest, depicts sasquatch sleeping.

NOTE- photographs are actually frame grabs from the Erickson Project video .

It is also been said that a little later in the video the sasquatch gets up and walks off.

Hmm...maybe a little promise from the Erickson project after all.

‎2011 Bull Mountain, GA Track.

STATS - Length= 14 inches - Width (Ball)=4.75 inch...es - Width (Heel)= 3.25 inches - Stride = 7 foot - Depth = 0.5 inches.

Northern GA

On January 22rd, witness Jeff was making his way to a duck hunting spot on Bull Mountain, GA. He and his buddy hiked in the back way across country, making their way to a hiking trail. When they arrived at the trail, they soon noticed peculiar footprints in the thawing ground.

At first, Jeff thought that somebody was playing a trick on him. Laughing, he took a couple photographs of the footprints with his cell phone. He started following the prints to see where they led. The more Jeff saw of them, the more he considered that they were not left for his discovery. After all, he had not seen anyone else that day in the area, and this location was chosen for its distinct lack of visitors. Also of note is that the daytime temperatures that day hovered in the low 30's until mid-afternoon. Whoever left these prints was clearly barefoot.

Upon looking closer at these prints, Jeff noticed what he described as “fingerprints” in them. More commonly known as dermatoglyphics, these minute skin details are only found on primates. They are used to increase friction on our hands and feet for brachiation and grasping objects. This observation also negates the possibility of the impressions being left by a person wearing Vibram footwear. The excellent condition in which the prints were found indicated to Jeff's experienced eye that they were within minutes to perhaps a couple hours old.

Though the photographs have no scale item, Jeff noted that he could fit his entire boot on the inside of the prints without overlapping the edges. When I had the chance to later measure Jeff's boots, their size indicates that the footprints were somewhere in the vicinity of 13.5 to 14 inches long. We would later recreate the step and stride lengths to find that the left and right prints were spaced about three-and-a-half feet apart (this is the “step length”), giving a stride length of seven feet or so.

Being a hunter, Jeff followed the footprints for a ways. What he found was that the creature would walk uphills for perhaps 30 or 40 feet, then double back for seven or eight steps, then continue further uphill. Jeff interpreted this behavior like it was worried about something and unsure of the direction to take. We speculated that perhaps the creature heard Jeff and his partner making their way towards it from the ravine below, though this is far from certain.

The length and stride measurements for this print are estimates given by the witness during the on site investigation using his boot as a scale item. The width measurements were derived by using simple ratios, and are based on a 14 inch length.

Ghost Adventures," the popular Travel Channel paranormal reality show involving three Ed Hardy-clad ghost hunters, is being haunted by allegations the show plays loose with the facts and emphasizes showmanship over hardcore research.
And, yes, paranormal experts claim that they employ science and scholarly research in their investigations of unexplained phenomena.
The accusations come from Bonnie Vent, a self-proclaimed "spirit advocate" in San Diego, who claims shows like "Ghost Adventures," "Ghost Hunters" and "Fact Or Fake" sensationalize the supernatural in order to scare up ratings.
"Due to the format they have to be augmented to make them more interesting," she told HuffPost Weird News, adding that "lockdowns," where "Ghost Adventures" stars Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin get locked inside a faciliity at midnight in order to investigate, "are good television but not necessary."
This doesn't set well with Vent, who claims that, as a "spirit advocate," it's her job to help dead celebs like Michael Jackson, George Carlin and "Crocodile Hunter" star Steve Irwin by delivering messages to their loved ones from beyond the grave.
She says that the crew behind "Ghost Adventures" doesn't research the places being investigated as thoroughly as they claim to. Recently, she says, she discovered that firsthand, when the crew came to her hometown to investigate the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Restaurant, a reportedly haunted San Diego hot spot for paranormal activity.
While in town, Bagans, Groff and Goodwin did an interview with HuffPost Weird News in which they discussed the pending investigation of the Cosmopolitan.
The investigation will air sometime during the show's fifth season, which premieres Sept. 23. During the interview, Bagans and Groff said one anecdote they discovered during their research led them to believe the hotel was haunted by Native American spirits.
"There is a certain energy that is trapped in this location and one lady was partially possessed, I guess, and started doing an Indian ritual dance," Groff said.
"Yes," Bagans adds. "This lady went downstairs to one of the other rooms we're going to be investigating and she started doing this Indian dance."
Vent says she knows that story is inaccurate because she is the woman who did the dance.
"In no way was I possessed," she insisted on her website. "The dance was an old fashioned Mexican Tarantella, not an Indian ritual dance. I did get into the flow of the energy in the Wine Room which is located in the original Bandini house and I did perform a dance that I had no knowledge of for several minutes."
Another bit of research that Vent says was incorrect was the "Ghost Adventures" cast's claim that the room in which the interview took place was where Juan Lorenzo Bandini, a San Diego pioneer who built the house in 1827, slept for many years.
That room was on the second floor of the building, which, it turns out, wasn't built until years after Bandini died.
In addition, hotel owner Joe Melluso -- who emphasizes he was thrilled to host the cast and crew -- says Bagans, Groff and Goodwin got a couple other big facts wrong.
During the interview with HuffPost Weird News, Bagans mentioned that a Spanish-speaking guitar player named Carlos had told him that Bandini murdered his wife and buried her where the restaurant is now.
In the original story, hotel co-owner Catherine Miller said she was unaware of this allegation. Melluso said he spoke with Carlos after the story was printed and the guitar player said his words were misinterpreted.
"But, after hearing how he explained it, I can see how the confusion happened," Melluso said.
He also says the crew misinterpreted a wood headboard of a little girl and a mirror featuring a woman's face carved in wood as being Bandini family heirlooms.
"The faces don't represent anyone related to the Cosmopolitan's original owners," he said.
Melluso and Vent say they want to correct the record to avoid fueling urban legends. They also don't want to offend the descendants of the Bandini family, who weren't too happy to hear allegations of murder.
"As you can see with my situation they do not have time or money to do their homework," Vent said, adding that "Ghost Adventures" isn't any different in that regard from other similar shows.
"Most [of these] shows reflect the same stuff," she said. "These television shows play over and over again. This stuff becomes legends that just won't go away."
However, Vent's insistence on accuracy may be more personal than just a crusade to correct the facts.
She admits she was actually the person who initially contacted "Ghost Adventures" to let them know about the Cosmopolitan's ghostly reputation.
"[Ghost Adventures] screwed me pretty badly but I am trying to stay positive," she said. "I pitched them to come to San Diego in the first place. They came, froze me out, and altered my experiences. The idea was to do with them the same type of communication as you see in the Cosmo videos. Once they locked in the venue, they quit responding."
When HuffPost Weird News contacted "Ghost Adventures" executive producer Daniel A. Schwartz about the inaccuracies, he apologized to the hotel on behalf of the show and said any errors or inaccuracies will be corrected before the episode airs later this season.
"We, too, are confirming facts and information to guarantee the episode is accurate," he said in an emailed statement. "We appreciate this having been brought to our attention as we always strive for accuracy in our programming. These observations will help to inform our fact checking process."
Vent is happy they are willing to correct inaccuracies, but says the nature of TV is why she and other paranormal investigators are skeptical about shows like "Ghost Adventures." Yet while she claims the show "augments" the truth, that was not the experience of researcher Jeff Dwyer, who recently did an investigation on the Winchester House in San Jose with the cast.
"I was impressed by how meticulous they were, especially Zak Bagans," he said. "They kept going over things to make sure they got them right."
But paranormal skeptic Bryan Bonner of the Rocky Mountain Paranormal Society says none of the ghost shows on TV are going to let facts get in the way of a good story.
"A while back, the TV show "Ghost Hunters: came to look at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, and made the claim that the supposedly haunted activity was caused by the existence of certain types of minerals," Bonner said.
"We had the government analyze the hotel site and, based on their findings, issued a report declaring that the minerals they claimed were there and causing the paranormal activity were, in fact, not there at all."
When Bonner heard the "Ghost Adventures" staff was investigating the hotel, he and his team sent the report to producers. However, despite having this evidence on hand, he says "they made the same claim about the minerals on their show. Minerals that weren't there."
Bonner says that while the claims have been disproven, the Stanley Hotel owners don't want that becoming public knowledge.
"We've been asked not to spread rumors that the minerals aren't there," he said. "The hotel was doing badly until it appeared on these shows. Now it's packed with amateur ghost hunters 24 hours a day."

SETI institute back in business scanning the skies!
Jodie Foster The Oscar winning actress, who appeared in the sci-fi film ‘Contact’, was among those who donated over $200,000 to the SETI institute.

Budget cuts had forced the Californian-based science programme, which has been searching for extraterrestrial intelligence, to switch off their high powered antenna scanning the skies for radio transmission.
The $50m Allen Telescope Array had to be put into ‘hibernation’ effectively ending the quest to make contact with alien life forms.

But following a public appeal, donations to get the telescope back on-line began flooding in and within a matter of weeks over $200,000 was raised.

Foster, who played a SETI researcher in the film ‘Contact’, was among those who contributed.
Apollo 8 astronaut Bill Anders, who flew around the moon in 1968, also donated.
‘It is absolutely irresponsible of the human race not to be searching for evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence,’ Mr Anders wrote in a note accompanying his contribution.
‘Thank you to everyone who helped us reach our goal of getting the ATA back online!’ read a note posted to the SETI website.

‘Stay tuned for updates. We are discovering more Earth-like planets every day, so now is more critical than ever to look for extraterrestrial life.’
The 42 radio dishes that make up the Allen telescope have scanned deep space since 2007 for signals from alien civilisations.
It has also conducted research into the structure and origin of the universe.
The $50million array was built by SETI and University of California with the help of a $30 million donation from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.
Officials at the SETI Institute said the donations will get the antenna up and running, but the quest for funding isn't over.

Operating the dishes costs about $1.5million a year, mostly to pay for the staff of eight to 10 researchers and technicians to operate the facility.

An additional $1million a year was needed to collect and sift the data from the dishes.
The Institute is looking for other sources of money for the $2.5million it requires annually to operate.
The SETI Institute was founded in 1984 and has received funding from NASA, the National Science Foundation and several other federal programs and private foundations.
It uses other tools in the quest for alien life, such as a dish at Arecibo in Puerto Rico, the largest radio telescope in the world. - dailymail

Filming skunk ape proving problematic -
David Shealy’s list of grievances against the National Park Service is long and longstanding.

Shealy, the owner of Trail Lakes Campground in Ochopee, says the staff at the Big Cypress National Preserve has stolen his customers, blocked his access to the park and created a hazard by not providing hunters with adequate means of disposing of dead animal parts.

...But his latest claim strikes at the heart of his being -- hindering his ability to market the skunk ape.

Shealy is the world’s foremost purveyor of skunk ape lore, the legends of a Yeti-like creature roaming the wilds of the Everglades and Big Cypress.

His Skunk Ape Research Headquarters is a curiosity along the Tamiami Trail and helps draw visitors to his business.

While dismissed by many as a made-up marketing ploy, the tale of the skunk ape has attracted the interest of reality TV.

A film crew has been in Ochopee this summer working with Shealy on a pilot, ostensibly for the Discovery Channel. The production company, Authentic Entertainment of Burbank, Calif., is behind reality staples including the Food Network’s “Ace of Cakes” and Bravo’s “Flipping Out.”

But Shealy says the park service has been less than cooperative with the filmmakers as they work inside the more than 700,000-acre preserve.

“I can’t do anything out there without a bunch of rangers around me. I see people and groups filming from time to time and no one is treated as poorly as me,” Shealy said.

Park spokesman Bob DeGross denies Shealy is subject to more scrutiny than any other film crew working in the preserve. Filming for commercial purposes requires a permit, which Authentic Entertainment obtained, DeGross said. To protect the preserve, there are limitations on what can be done while filming.

For instance, DeGross said the film crew wanted to shoot a swamp buggy traversing a part of the preserve that is off-limits to vehicles. That wasn’t allowed but they were directed to another area where vehicles are allowed, he said.

DeGross said Authentic Entertainment has filmed in national parks before and is aware of the restrictions. “We’re willing to work with them very closely,” he said.

Shealy’s unease with the Park Service is at the point he feels he freedom of speech is threatened. To conduct tours inside the park he would need a license, which he doesn’t have. The reason: “If I tell a person I’m guiding the skunk ape is real, I’d lose my license,” he said.

Obtaining a license entails paying a $100 fee and undergoing training and orientation. Operators need park approval of the number of visitors and the frequency of tours in order to protect the natural resources, DeGross said. But he sees nothing in the rules that would stop a guide from talking about the skunk ape. “It’s an individual’s personal belief if the skunk ape exists,” DeGross said, adding, “We have no documented evidence the skunk ape exists.”

Plus, DeGross said, Shealy has his own land on which to peddle the skunk ape. “We don’t have any jurisdiction on his private property at all.”

Shealy may be all alone in feeling put upon by the park service over his quest for the skunk ape, but he has company in another area of concern.

The preserve’s free and low-cost camp sites are costing nearby campgrounds business, agrees Kenny Brown, manager of Outdoor Resorts Chokoloskee location.

Big Cypress Preserve offers RV camping for under $20 a night. At some times of the year, it is free.

By contrast, Brown charges as much as $89 a night for RV sites on the water. The Outdoor Resorts campground has more amenities, such as a pool, but it’s hard to beat free, he said. “That’s heavy duty competition,” he said.

Shealy charges about $25 night for RVs and has seen his business drop in recent years as the preserve has raised its profile on U.S. 41. “They built two big visitors centers and they tell (campers) to go to their free campsites. It’s just ruined me,” he said.

TCC - hmmmm...kind of interesting considering all this recent news about "the government took my bigfoot body" stories.

Justin Smeja’s driver breaks his silence. Justin Smeja is the man who reportedly shot and killed 2 Bigfoots in the Sierra Nevada last year. Details here. We have known from the start that there was another hunter present. We called him the driver. He tried to get Smeja to not shoot the Bigfoots and was hysterical after the killings. To date, he has not spoken about the incident. However, we were recently put in contact with a source who claims to be in contact with the driver. The driver will not reveal his name.
The driver acknowledges that he was furious when Smeja shot the Bigfoots. After the mother was shot, the driver was horrified. And after the baby was shot, the driver was disgusted. The driver’s story differs in some respects from Smeja’s. In our original story, Smeja did not think the Bigfoot was a bear as he says now. Instead, he shot it because he thought it was threatening him.
The driver says simply about Smeja’s rationale for the first shooting, “He shot a monster.” He saw a monster, and he shot it. Smeja has confirmed this on a forum, saying he thought it was a monster, and he shot it because that’s what you do with monsters, you shoot them. Before he shot it, the driver was spotting the animal with his binoculars. Several times and in several ways, the driver said, “That’s not a bear!” This lines up again with our original story in which the driver said, “Don’t shoot! It’s a guy in a monkey suit!” However, Smeja shot anyway.
The driver also disagrees with Smeja about why the juvenile Bigfoot was shot. We said it was shot for an unknown reason. Smeja said the baby Bigfoot was threatening him. Our original source disagreed with that. “No. It wasn’t threatening him,” he said.
The driver agrees with us. He said that Smeja shot the juvenile in order to bring it home as evidence. Evidence for what? Evidence to prove his wild story. Smeja said that the young Bigfoot was shot and immediately left for dead as they cleared out of the area. We said that the young Bigfoot died in Smeja’s arms. The driver confirms our story. He said that the young Bigfoot was shot and killed. They examined it closely and looked in its eyes. They thought the eyes looked “human.”
One wonders why the young Bigfoot was shot for evidence and then left behind, a contradiction. Once again we are vindicated. We said that Smeja was afraid of being arrested. According to the driver, though the juvenile was shot for evidence, they left it behind because Smeja thought that he was going to be arrested the California Department of Fish and Game. Smeja has all along insisted that he was not afraid of being arrested, but  we have said otherwise.
I think this is what happened. The baby was shot for evidence, to prove his story since they searched for the mother but could not find her. The driver was disgusted and took the gun out of Smeja’s hands and pointed it at him, telling Smeja that if you shoot another one of those things, I will shoot you instead.
Smeja held the dying animal in his arms. They looked into its eyes, saw it was human, and Smeja had an attack of conscience of some sort (I think he does have some sort of a conscience). He realized that he had killed some sort of hominid and not some weird monster and then became frightened of being arrested. This lines up with so many Bigfoot killing accounts, where the killers leave the bodies in the woods or bury them because they think they committed homicide.
Smeja’s attack of conscience may have been due to thinking of himself as a murderer. Whatever else he is, Smeja’s not a murderer, and he doesn’t like to think of himself as one. Therefore, the scene was hastily abandoned. Why were no pictures taken. On forums, Smeja says that they were so upset and freaked out after shooting 2 monsters that they just got out of there as quickly as possible, never even thinking to take a picture.

The entire way home, not a word was said between the two men. They did not speak of the incident at all for another 10 days.
The driver does contradict an earlier rumor we printed in which we said that the driver was so shocked that he did not want to associate with Smeja anymore. The driver agreed with Smeja that they are still friends.
Incredibly, the driver agreed with Smeja that the Bigfoot slice was not cut off on the day of the shooting. It was not cut off because they could not find the mother to cut a piece off of her, which was apparently why they were searching for her – they were looking for the dead mother to obtain proof of the incident – probably by cutting off a body piece.
The driver said that Smeja went back two weeks later with a bloodhound. The dog found the Bigfoot steak somewhere in the snow. At the moment, this incredible version may well be true.
The driver is still traumatized by the incident. He described it as horrible, disgusting and true. He also implied that Smeja is traumatized by the incident, but more that he can’t put it behind him than for any other reason. The driver said that Smeja is just hoping that the story would go away so he could move on. Instead, it’s not going away at all. As a matter of fact, it’s only beginning.
The driver also agreed with Smeja that Smeja reported it to the CA DFG, but he was laughed out of the office.
Finally, the driver said that the whole story would be coming out in about one month.
The friend struck me as intelligent in his correspondences with my source. At the least, he’s a better writer than Smeja. The driver did take exception to the depiction of Smeja as a dumb redneck, saying that he was a bright guy who had not idea that anyone would get mad at him for shooting a Bigfoot. At the moment, the driver has stopped responding to my source, so we may not get any more communications out of him.

Smeja probably a smooth, slick, excellent liar with multiple and sophisticated personality layers. My feeling is that Smeja lies very easily, is an excellent liar who can fool many people, and is not troubled by lying. Nevertheless, I do believe his story. At the moment, he’s lying mostly for damage control. Note that I do not think that being a skillful liar is a bad thing. After all, the most successful Americans have this characteristic.
He has a conscience, mostly buried, but it is active. He doesn’t worry much if at all and lacks introspection. He acts rather than thinks. Experiences little to no anxiety or depression. I honestly doubt that he feels very bad about what he did, but I suppose he would like to take it all back, if only because it was more trouble than it was worth. This is not the sort of person who suffers or beats themselves up over past deeds. Experiences little guilt.
But in this personality type, even when they are upset or even devastated about something, you won’t be able to tell as they will seem as happy go lucky as ever. He is an easy going, happy, optimistic and extroverted type who doesn’t analyze things. He acts, experiences and tries to either enjoy those experiences as best he can them or explain them off if he can’t.
He uses bluff, bluster, denial, “shrugging it off,” and smug, brash, “fast talking” overconfidence to blast through and throw off problems and threatening situations. He also dives into outdoors activities to take his mind off of troubling things. He may experience some anxiety, but if he does, he will just start moving his body or something to incorporate the anxiety and dissipate it. His personality is very highly developed, works on many different levels, and he has very good social skills. He is not a social idiot in any way. This person is a social actor.

Smeja hard to pin down morally. Some folks are clearly angelic, while others are obviously rats. Everyone agrees. Not so with Smeja. I don’t even want to go into whether or not Smeja is a good person or a bad person becuase my views are tainted with politics. That is, I abhor his politics (he’s an extreme culture warrior), which makes it hard for me to view him objectively.
He is the sort of person in whom it will be difficult to say if he is a good or bad person, and in today’s Social Darwinist America, such binary notions are often laughed at anyway if not devalued and ridiculed outright. Nevertheless, whether someone is good or bad is very important to me personally, so I will discuss it about him and others.
Plenty of folks who know Smeja dislike him intensely and think he is no good. Others seem to like him a lot, and think he is a good guy, if not the greatest guy around. He is capable of presenting himself very well as a “fine upstanding member of the community,” or, better yet, a model citizen who goes above and beyond the moral norms. He plays active roles in making his society a better place. This may go along with the hardcore Christian thing.
This sort of person, to whom right and wrong are often abstractions to be manipulated in various ways and explained away with fast talking bluster and careless laughter as this, that, the other, or whatever one wants them to mean, will do much the same in his own life, playing a variety of seemingly conflicting moral roles. Such a person is hard to pin down in a moral or theological sense, and they even tend to baffle psychologists. Their mores, norms and morals or lack of them are probably better explained by sociologists and political scientists than anyone else.

Justin Smeja recounts version of shooting on the web. Smeja is continuing to describe the shooting on the forums. He said that the mother and juvenile Bigfoots looked nothing alike at all, totally different. The young ones approached them several times but then split up and took off to go looking for the mother.
He said that they were not aggressive, but instead they were worried and upset about what happened to the mother. They were communicating in an odd speech that sounded like a deaf person trying to talk. This is a very interesting statement and adds excellent weight to the story. In a number of Bigfoot sightings, people have described Bigfoot speech as sounding like a deaf person trying to talk.
Smeja also stated that the young one had a gigantic head, almost out of proportion to its body. Once again this lines up with other reports and videos including the Pancake Video, where the young Bigfoot grabbing the pancake has a huge head.

Ketchum’s crazy NDA’s sealing the lips of sample submitters shut. People are asking why sample submitters, including Derek Randles and Justin Smeja, are not allowed to talk much about the circumstances surrounding the samples that they collected. In Randles and Smeja’s case, they can’t talk much about the Sierra Kills.This is the reason why all the photos of Larry Johnson’s Bigfoot toenail are being pulled off the web.
The reason for this is Ketchum’s snarky and scientifically unnecessary NDA’s. According to these NDA’s, you cannot discuss or publish anything about the samples you give her, including the circumstances in which you found them, where you found them, when you found them, photos of the samples, etc. If you won’t sign that agreement, she won’t take your sample.
Such an agreement is ridiculous. Suppose you had a great Bigfoot sample that you wanted to give to the study, the greatest in the world to date. Ketchum will reject your sample unless you sign her sneaky NDA. Therefore, the best sample out there would be rejected from the study. This is not science. It’s business. Ketchum’s DNA study is being run as a profit-maximizing business enterprise first, and as a scientific venture only second.
Imagine if a real scientific study, say run out of Max Frank Institute in Germany, was looking at evidence for Bigfoot. Would they make you sign such an NDA? Of course not. Why not? Because it’s scientifically unnecessary, and the Max Frank folks would not be running the study as a business venture.
The only agreement they make you sign would be one letting them use your sample for their study. What do they care if you talk about it or not? Ketchum’s NDA’s are 100% about making money and 0% about science. A friend of mine noted that the money-making objective of her study tends to taint the study automatically in his eyes. He may be correct. Science ain’t business. The moment went all science becomes a profit-making enterprise, the scientific enterprise is down the toilet.

Everyone signing on with Ketchum’s project will be left hanging out to try by her grossly illegal contracts. According to Ketchum’s NDA, she owns all rights to the DNA sequencing of the samples submitted to her. This is so she can ca$$$h in on them. Now suppose you submit a sample to Ketchum for her study. She uses and gives it back to you.
Now you want to take it to Robert Lindsay’s DNA Lab for them to sequence the DNA, maybe to see if Ketchum was right or not. You pay Lindsay’s lab for the DNA work. Lindsay gives you the results from the testing, and guess who owns the reports Lindsay just gave you? Melba Ketchum! Yes, she owns the rights to even subsequent DNA work done by other labs.
Want to write a book and talk about the DNA results? No can do, better leave that out of the book or you get sued. Want to go on TV and talk about the results from your tooth or whatever. Better not, or you get sued.
In my opinion, this is simply an illegal contract. It’s not enforceable. A source showed the contract to an attorney in Arizona. The attorney said that the agreement is illegal and not enforceable in Arizona.

Hand of unknown origin is only a bear paw. Don Monroe’s “hand of unknown origin” which was found in a dump in Montana or Idaho and turned in to Ketchum’s DNA study, has turned out to be a bear paw after all. There was controversy about the hand. One of my sources was sure that it was a Bigfoot hand. Ketchum and Jeff Meldrum both said that it was a bear paw, a conclusion that each one reached independently. Kudos to Meldrum and Ketchum for getting it right.
Here is the analysis:
After viewing the report and radiographs from Dr. Reese, which you have posted on your website, I can conclusively state that the “hand” Don Monroe submitted to you is actually the forepaw of a bear. If you would look at “Fundamentals of Forensic Anthropology” by Linda L. Klepinger, page 22, you will see a side-by-side comparison of the radiographs of a human hand, and the forepaw of a bear.
As can clearly be seen, the radiograph in the book is nearly identical to the one Dr. Reese produced. I believe Dr. Reese was unable to properly identify the paw, because he misidentified the bear’s 5th digit as a severed first digit. This caused all the confusion. The “hand” is not the right paw, but the left. The carpals in a bear’s paw share no similarities with a humans, but may look similar near the digits, if reversed.
The expert who reviewed the hand is a PhD physicist who teaches Computational Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Chicago.

Plumas County Sheriff’s Office refuses to investigate Sierra Kills. We called the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office. They told us that they had received some calls recently from folks reporting this case. The callers had mentioned Justin Smeja as the perpetrator of the incident. The office decided to turn the case over to Fish and Game.
The office said that callers had mentioned the steak from the Kills testing 100% positive. This could imply crimes such as homicide, or transporting, theft or mutilating a corpse. However, they said that that was 3rd hand information and not worthy of investigation. They acted like the whole matter was ridiculous.

US national security teams looking into the Sierra Kills? We received a tip from a source who is in contact with someone who is big in the Bigfoot world. This person has an extensive background in US military and national security. According to his sources in the government, US national security agencies are aware of the Sierra Kills incident and are investigating it. For some reason, whatever happened has national security consequences. As this is a 4th hand report, we can’t confirm it in any way, but it is interesting.

Bigfoot steak contaminated by human DNA? The Bigfoot slice recovered from the Sierra Kills tested 100% on an initial DNA test. Some are suggesting that it was contaminated by humans in the course of the chain of custody in transporting it to the lab. The problem is that Ketchum took a variety of samples from deep down inside the slice. There is no way that flesh down that deep could have been contaminated in handling or transport.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Authorities say a mysterious orange-colored substance has washed up on the shores of a remote village in northwest Alaska.
Tests have been conducted on the substance on the surface of the water in Kivalina (KIV'-uh-LEE'-nuh). City Administrator Janet Mitchell told The Associated Press that the substance has also shown up in some residents' rain buckets.
Coast Guard Petty Officer David Mosely tells KTUU that it's not a petroleum substance and it's not man-made. Mitchell says the village is requesting that an algae expert from the University of Alaska Fairbanks investigate.
Pictures taken by resident Mida Swan show an orange sheen across the harbor and on beaches in the village about 625 miles northwest of Anchorage.
Swan says she didn't smell anything odd when she dipped her hand into the substance.

Latest News from the Bigfoot World -
Stunning new leaks from the Erickson Project. We can now confirm the existence of a 45 minute video on the Erickson Project (EP). If it is ever released, it will go down in history as one of most stunning documentaries in the history of film. I know that this film exists, because one of my sources watched the whole thing.

First of all, the video consists of a number of interviews. There are interviews with Adrian Erickson, head of the project; Dr. Leila Hadj-Chikh, apparently the lead scientist with the project; Dennis Pfohl, head videographer with the project among other roles; and Dr. Melba Ketchum, who is running her own DNA project in tandem with the Erickson Project. The interview with Ketchum shows her sitting at a chair, working in her lab. The interviews make up about half of the footage of the film, or about 22 minutes.

The other half of the film, or about 22 minutes of footage, is made up of some of the most kick-ass, out of this world, knock your socks off Bigfoot footage that the world has ever seen. The closeup video of the young female Bigfoot in Kentucky is part of the footage, but there is much more. There is quite a bit of other footage from the same Kentucky site. In addition, there is excellent footage, possibly on a par with the Kentucky footage, from at least one or possibly more than one other habituation site.

All of the 22 minutes of Bigfoot footage on the tape is excellent. Some of it was shot in the day, and a fair amount of it was shot at night with infrared technology. The night footage is also very good. At least some of the footage is on a par with the Patterson film, and some is even better. Chris Noel said the footage as a whole “will blow the lid off the whole Bigfoot field.”

Kentucky habituation site not the only EP habituation site. Keep in mind that the Kentucky habituation site, which we will now publically reveal as being in Crittenden, Kentucky, only 15 miles south of Cincinnati, was only one of 2 or more habituation sites that Erickson used for his project.

The other site, believed to be in Vermont.

This is reportedly an excellent habituation site, and Bigfoots definitely seem to be using the area.

Good DNA evidence in the form of blood and tissue and some outrageous, out of this world film, also came from this site.

There may be more than two habituation sites used in the Erickson Project, but I am not sure at the moment.

The footage was shot by a variety of different people. The EP footage itself, I believe, was shot mostly by Pfohl. Other footage was shot by residents of the sites. I know for a fact that the Kentucky residents shot quite a bit of superb video.

Erickson Project had many opportunities to kill a Bigfoot. We can now report that the EP says they had countless opportunities to kill a Bigfoot in the course of these investigations. Apparently they had high powered weapons that they were ready to use if they had to. But the team was staunchly anti-kill from the very start, and this position never changed. I am pro-kill myself, and it’s too bad they felt this way, as it could have solved this mystery once and for all.

EP wanted badly to tranquilize a Bigfoot. The EP also thought long and hard about tranquilizing a Bigfoot, as they had many opportunities to do that too, but they decided that it would be too difficult and that it might not even work.

First of all, you need to know the exact dose necessary for any given animal. Each animal takes a different dose and maybe even a different drug. There is no way to calculate the proper dose for a Bigfoot since we don’t have any subjects to test it out on. If you get the dose wrong, you could kill the Bigfoot if the dose is too high. Not high enough, and the Bigfoot won’t even drop, but it will probably vacate the habituation site and take all the others with it.

In addition, tranquilizers don’t typically drop animals right away. The animals run for aways until they drop. Surely Bigfoots will be the same. Now you have a Bigfoot that dropped down a few hundred yards away in the woods. How to get it out? And you will have some other very angry Bigfoots in the area to prevent you from taking out the body. What to do? At the moment, the tranquilizing idea seems to have too many problems. Maybe in the future.

Dennis Pfohl describes Bigfoot behavior. Dennis Pfohl seemed to be running the Erickson Project on the ground. I feel that he shot most of the EP video for the project. Hadj-Chikh probably shot few, if any, videos. In addition to shooting video at the Kentucky site, I also feel that Pfohl shot video at the Vermont site. He may have shot video at other habituation sites too, assuming that they exist.

In the course of the project, Pfohl got to know the local Bigfoots very well. He said each one had its own distinct personality, and he got to understand their personalities quite well.

Pfohl also said that the Bigfoots have a strange way of dealing with humans they like. They are playful, and almost seem to be playing little jokes on us a lot. At the same time, they seem to be sending a message that says, “Let’s be friends, but don’t get too close.”

Like other animals, the Bigfoots come to recognize the sounds of various vehicles. If it is someone they like, they will do things like wood knocks when one of their friends’ cars shows up. At one site, one person that the Bigfoots liked left the place, and another person took their place. This person drove a pickup truck and had a rather angry personality. The Bigfoots knew the sound of his car and avoided him.

Justin Smeja under investigation by the California Department of Fish and Game. In a previous article, Richard Stubstad describes how he and I undertook an investigation into the Sierra Kills by going to the possible site of the shooting west of Frenchman Lake, California. We spoke to the local Forest Service law enforcement officer, who had not heard of the case.

Then we spoke to the local Fish and Game game warden in charge of the area. He told us that recently two people had inquired about the Sierra Kills shooting. The first person gave them fuzzy details. The case went to his superior, who decided it was not worth investigating.

However, the second inquiry was more convincing. The officer told us that he had been given Smeja’s name, email and physical address in Sacramento. He said he was going to follow up on the case and try to talk to Smeja, but he didn’t want to waste too much time on the matter, as he thought it was nonsense. He was not sure if any laws had been broken. We confirmed for him that Smeja was the shooter.

Justin Smeja possibly lying about reporting Sierra Kills to the sheriff’s office. We contacted the local Plumas County sheriff’s office and asked them if Smeja had reported the incident to them. Smeja’s name was not in their files, therefore, he had not reported it, as they have to make a report on every call. The part about reporting it to the sheriff’s is also part of Derek Randles’ official version of the story that he is demanding that we adopt. We respectfully refuse to automatically adopt what is essentially the killer’s version of a homicide case, sorry.

On the other hand, it is possible that the Sierra Kills did not occur in Plumas County. Perhaps they occurred in another county in the Sierras along the California/Nevada border. Smeja and Randles have been utterly unhelpful in assisting researchers about the actual site of the Sierra Kills. Apparently they intend to keep the site secret forever. We have tried hard to pin down the site, but it has not been easy as the main sources have refused to cooperate.

Derek Randles had never been to the Sierra Kills scene nor met Justin Smeja in person. Derek Randles, who claims to have investigated this story inside and out, has never even been to Sacramento to talk with Smeja. Nor has he ever been to the Sierra Kills scene or talked to anyone in the area. Some investigation. Some investigator.

Justin Smeja’s driver completely hysterical after Sierra Kills, wants nothing to do with Smeja anymore. The driver of Smeja’s vehicle in the Sierra Kills shooting was horrified by the shootings. He was hysterical and absolutely beside himself, especially after Smeja killed the juvenile Bigfoot. As we reported, the driver pointed his gun and Smeja and said if you kill another one of those things, I will kill you too. It was mostly due to the driver’s hysteria that the two abandoned the scene, but probably not after Smeja carved off a piece of the female Bigfoot’s thigh.

The driver was previously a good friend of Smeja’s, but now he has abandoned his friend, ended their relationship, and wants absolutely nothing to do with Smeja, so horrified was he by Smeja’s maniacal behavior on that hallowed and doomed fall day in the Eastern Sierras.

Psychic horrified by photo of Justin Smeja, felt he was “malevolent,” and demanded that his photo be removed from her home. As part of our investigation, we visited a psychic who Stubstad knew in Truckee, California. We showed her Smeja’s photo. She stared at it for a long time, then said that he was hiding something, but she did not know what. She also felt that he was very protective of his family, and that his family had been threatened over this purported shooting.

She said he generated very intense bad energy, which she described as malevolent. In fact, when we left that day, she demanded that we take the Smeja photos with us because the didn’t want them in her house as they were generating extreme bad vibes around the house and making the house uncomfortable for her to stay in.

Ketchum has an unfulfilled NDA with Tom Biscardi. It is interesting that the Ketchum Project people attempted to trash us as being associated with Tom Biscardi. Biscardi, whatever you think of him, has been an essential element of the Ketchum Project. Many times we needed folks to run samples from wherever to Ketchum’s lab in Texas. All of these illustrious Biscardi-hating investigators could not be bothered to do so. Only Tom Biscardi would step up to the plate, and so he was used.

Ketchum has an agreement with Biscardi to do the work on his own samples and to send him the results. She has never fulfilled her end of the bargain, hence she can be sued by Biscardi. However, Biscardi probably lacks money for a lawsuit.

The Bigfoot toenail is from Larry Jenkins in northwest Arizona.
The toenail, submitted to the Ketchum DNA project, was found by Jenkins at his cabin high up in the Arizona mountains near the Grand Canyon.
[Toe Nail Photo remove due to Copyright issue]
There do appear to be some Bigfoots in the area.


The toenail does not appear to be human. It is much too large, too thick, and has a sort of yellowish-black color to it that human nails do not have. Albert Ostman noted long ago that Bigfoots have blackish nails. The badly decomposed dead Bigfoot found by two Indian girls in Happy Camp, California, in 1965, also had black nails. This is why John Green felt it was a real Bigfoot, due to its consistency with Ostman’s tale.

BFRO has a possible Bigfoot skull. The BFRO has come into possession of a possible Bigfoot skull from Walla Walla, Washington. It is a small, ape-like skull, but it does not appear to be of an ape. It was found in the forest near Walla Walla. There is a lot of Bigfoot activity in this part of the Blue Mountains, the site of the famous Freeman film and Freeman footprints. I feel that the Freeman film is 100% genuine. Update: Skull has been shown to be human.

Another possible Bigfoot killing near the possible Sierra Kills site. While Stubstad and I were investigating the Sierra Kills case, we spoke with the Forest Service LE officer for the Beckwourth District of the Plumas National Forest. This is the district where the Sierra Kills may have taken place.

He told us that he had received a report of another Bigfoot being shot dead at Janesville Grade, about 20 miles north of the possible Sierra Kills site. The killing is said to have occurred about two weeks ago in the middle of July. We could not confirm this story in one way or another so we have no way of knowing if it occurred or not.

If it happened, the surviving juvenile from the Sierra Kills may have been killed, or the surviving father from the Sierra Kills was killed. We feel that there was a male Bigfoot mate of the killed female Bigfoot, since I don’t think Bigfoot single Moms are very common. If there is anything to either of these stories, it is amazing that two Bigfoots were reportedly shot dead within 20 miles of each other in the Eastern Sierra Nevada in California only nine months apart.

Reported Bigfoot sighting in Placerville, California, in mid-July. As part of our investigation, Stubstad and I went to a liquor store in tiny Sierraville, California. The American Indian woman there told us that there had been a Bigfoot sighting in Placerville only two weeks before. Supposedly, an excellent photograph was taken as part of this sighting. Placerville is about 70 miles southwest of Sierraville and 43 miles east of Sacramento.

We were unable to confirm this sighting one way or the other. One thing is for sure though. The northern Sierra Nevada seems to get a lot of Bigfoot sightings, especially in the summertime. Most are apparently not reported to Bigfoot organizations.

Erickson Project flat broke, out of funds. Although Adrian Erickson is a rich man, he has been running into financial trouble lately with his housing development in British Colombia, which is his principal business at the moment. Housing sales have slowed down due to the economic crash created by finance capital in the US (Wall Street).

Erickson had been financing his Bigfoot project, on which so far he has spent $3 million, on a revolving line of credit. For whatever reason, his bank is not willing to loan him any more money for Bigfoot ventures. Therefore, the EP is flat broke, and it is uncertain what major ventures they can do in the future.

Erickson to go down in history among the greatest of the greats. I would like to add that I think the EP’s best work is already behind them. Adrian Erickson and to a lesser extent Dennis Pfohl will go down in history as some of the greatest men to grace the annals of the worldwide investigation of the Bigfoot phenomenon. Erickson’s name will be up there with Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin, and he may even supersede them. Let us bow down before our Bigfootery Gods!

Melba Ketchum has mysterious benefactor who demands to remain anonymous. We made the error early on in our reporting of mixing up the EP with the Ketchum Project (KP). Although the beginnings of the KP are very difficult to describe and involve Ketchum, David Paulides, Erickson and Biscardi in various confusing, conflicting and hard to sort out roles, for a long time now, the KP has been a singular entity.

One wonders about the financing. Actually, Ketchum has a mysterious benefactor, who seems to be a relatively famous and very rich person, who is funding most of her DNA testing. This is necessary because Ketchum charges about $11,500 for full nuclear DNA sequencing. Obviously, submitters do not have this kind of cash, so someone is paying their way. If you heard this man’s name, you might or might not recognize it, because he is relatively famous. However, he wishes to remain anonymous, hence my sources would not reveal his name to me.

Mass confusion reigns about Ketchum’s DNA pricing. Some submitters have said that Ketchum charged them $200 for DNA sequencing of samples. The submitters were able to pay this. However, when I revealed that Erickson paid $70,000 for the sequencing of 6 samples, mass confusion broke out. We can now clear up the confusion.

Ketchum charges $200 for MtDNA sequencing. But for NuDNA testing, which is vastly more complex, she charges ~$11,500. This is why Erickson paid so much for his samples.

Ketchum cruelly fired of her best friends, lied and said she was “too slow.” Ketchum’s insatiable quest for all-encompassing power and glory in the discovery of Bigfoot seems to know no ends. We can now report that she fired a female geneticist, a PhD who did excellent work. Ketchum said she was “too slow.” My sources say that this is nonsense; the woman did excellent work.

The reason for Ketchum firing the woman are completely unknown, but sources said that she felt threatened by the geneticist because she does such great work. Ketchum is insecure and sometimes tries to get rid of highly competent workers who threaten her grandiose self-image and fantasies of unlimited power, glory and money. The geneticist was a close friend of Ketchum’s, and she was utterly devastated after being fired. But the geneticist certainly didn’t lose out on any paychecks. At the time, she was working for Ketchum for free!

Ketchum furiously trying to wiggle out of NDA agreement with Erickson. Sources say that Ketchum dislikes the agreement she has with Erickson and would very much like to get out of it. The reason is because there is supposed to be a press conference upon the publication of Ketchum’s DNA paper, assuming it ever gets published.

At this press conference, Ketchum will unveil her DNA paper, and she will focus on Erickson’s 6 samples, which all turned out to be from separate Bigfoots. Other samples that tested positive as Bigfoots will be revealed “as an aside.” It will be difficult for Ketchum to do a press conference referring for the most part only to Erickson’s samples; this is not what she wants to do. The EP video will then be released in tandem with the DNA evidence. If Ketchum fails to hold the press conference as it is supposed to be held, she can be sued by Erickson for violating their agreement.

Tom Biscardi – hoaxer or not? After quite a bit of investigation, including an interview with Java Bob Schmaltzbach, I have concluded that Tom Biscardi is not a hoaxer. Java Bob went through a long history with me about the Georgia Boys’ fake Bigfoot body saga. It appears that both Biscardi and Java Bob were hoaxed by the Georgia Boys. Biscardi had no idea it was a fake. He was on the phone having Java Bob run tests on the thing when Bob discovered that it had a rubber foot.

It was then that that Java and Biscardi realized that they had been had. Recall that Biscardi forked over ~$50,000 for the fake dead Bigfoot. Why would he lose all that money if he was in on a hoax?

The truth is that Biscardi is not a hoaxer. Instead, he is a gullible, not particularly bright, narcissistic, showboating sort of guy who works as a Las Vegas showman. He believes anyone, so he gets hoaxed himself all the time. Biscardi also believes very much in Bigfoot, and he has 4 excellent daytime sightings and many more nighttime sightings. He has made some positive contributions to the Bigfoot field. In short, the popular image of Tom Biscardi as a hoaxer seems to be mistaken.

Biscardi does not have a good personality. He is a crass, vulgar, condescending, arrogant, egotistical and highly narcissistic man. Most people who associate with him for a while leave him because he is so hurtful. He hurts his own friends and even his own family with his callous remarks. Like many such types, he hasn’t the slightest clue about his culpability in these interpersonal scenarios. He has contempt for nearly everyone else in the Bigfoot world, who he typically refers to as bottom feeders.

Biscardi is not a Rhodes scholar, but he’s not stupid either. At best he has about average intelligence or so. He has an engaging, extroverted but brash personality.

Tom Biscardi the Wilt Chamberlain of Bigfootery. Biscardi lives in between the California Bay Area and Las Vegas, or, as a source says, “wherever he can find a loose woman.” Biscardi thinks he is God’s gift to women, and he is one of the wildest, most out of control and notorious womanizers in the Bigfoot world. One source compared him to Wilt Chamberlain. “Biscardi has a woman in every port,” the source said.

He typically can’t hang onto a woman for more than a year or two, but then he just goes out and grabs a new one. He has some grown kids from one or more previous marriages.

Tom Biscardi financially ruined Java Bob Schmaltzbach, left him out to dry. For a while, Java Bob hooked up with Biscardi on his round the country Bigfoot road show. Bob was paid around ~$1,000/month salary, but that did not even begin to cover basic expenses. They roamed around the country searching for Bigfoot, either staying in motels or staying with people who had seen Bigfoots and wanted investigations. Java left his wife at home and took off with Biscardi on this wild voyage, but the wife didn’t really mind.

It was wild and fun, but it drained Bob’s finances and eventually ruined his car. He ended up broke, with a wrecked car that would not even run. He was nearly homeless and had to move in with one of his kids for a while. He is now living happily in Happy Camp, California with his wife.

He is still hurt by the way that Biscardi treated him. Seems no one comes out of a relationship with Biscardi without a bit of damage.

Richard Stubstad not financing Tom Biscardi. There is a rumor floating around that Stubstad is Biscardi’s newest investor. It is certainly not true. I can assure you that, as I know Stubstad quite well.
