EVPs Recorded Overnight in Tomb

I was contacted by Bob LaFlamme about an interesting EVP he had recorded.
A voice activated recorder was placed in a tomb in a cemetery in Athol, Mass.
It appears this worked as there seems to me lots of voices on the recorder.
Here is a video I made, I hope to keep working with this EVP and come up with more.

This recording reminds me of the Sounds of Hell recording, in many ways they are similar.

Special Thanks goes out to Bob LaFlamme for allowing me to work with this EVP and post the results.

Bigfoot Movie NIGHTBEASTS Gaining Exposure

As some of you may know we did a small post about a movie name Nightbeasts starring Zach Galligan (Gremlins), well there is even more good news for the film. A deal was signed to show the film on 200 theatrical and drive-in movie screens across the USA starting in June.
Also the movie is scheduled to come out on DVD in October and on streaming services. I personally would like to watch this one, it looks pretty good and I like the Native American angle.

Rat on Mars

A photo from the mast camera on NASA’s Curiosity rover is causing a little bit of a stir. There appears to be a rat in the photo.
Here is the photo
rat is on the left
Of course this is being explained away as pareidolia, but is it really? You remember how all UFO sightings were explained as Swamp Gas or ball lighting? Well I think Pareidolia is being very over used to explain away things.

Well I decided to have some fun with this Mars photo and here is my efforts.
I colored the rat in ...looks like a rat don't it?

Here is a blow up of the rat

Rat or not this is getting some press. To me it looks like a rat but I may be suffering from pareidolia....wish they made a pill for it. lol

This "Rat" was discovered by Scott C Waring according to Fox News.

Possible Bigfoot Picture From Oregon (UPDATE)

[The Photo is from TCC Team Members Bobby & Corinna Long] 

Bobby and Corinna Long do their bigfoot research and investigations in Oregon. There has been several reports they have checked into around where the above photo was taken. It is also in the same area where Bobby and Corinna had their own sighting.

On the day this photo was taken they also reported hearing some loud thuds, had found several tree breaks and thought something was pacing them on the edge of the woods.
I have attempted to enhance the photo but it is still inconclusive.

Of course we can not say for sure that this is a bigfoot but there does appear to be something looking from behind that tree. It kind of looks like the left arm is up and it is peaking over. It may be just a shadow or a trick of light but this is still a very good area with a history of sightings and track fines.
More research will be done in this area over the summer.


Area GPS:43.15278N, 132.13922W   Elevation 2279

UPDATE! -  Bobby and Corinna went back to this location yesterday and took some pictures and video. I hope to have the video a little later but here are the photos.

and here is a zoom in

It is still inclusive but at least we are doing research and trying to be sure. The after images look somewhat different. This was some good work by Bobby and Corinna. I hope to post the video up later today or tomorrow.

Bigfoot Sighting In Illinois?

By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher
Professional Writer, a nature and wildlife enthusiast who has written for many magazines.

Bigfoot Sighting In Illinois?
Assessing The Possibilities In My Neck Of The Woods
By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher
            My home state of Illinois isn’t the most well-known state for its bigfoot sightings, but sightings do take place here. And in areas where there is virtually no wilderness. And this has led me and researchers in this state to believe they don’t really need wilderness to thrive. And there were “wild man” reports in my area down through history. But the cast of Finding Bigfoot left Illinois very unsure of its existence here.
            But in central Illinois where I live, the terrain is mostly flat or with rolling hills.  There are many pockets of forest that dot the landscape. Some connect to each other and could create a hidden route for a large creature. And where they don’t connect,  part of the year they’re covered in rows of corn. This could create numerous hidden routes with good cover when the corn is tall, which is most of the summer.  Many areas are teeming with deer that also use the corn rows as cover to trek across areas where they might normally be seen. It’s great terrain for a large animal to hide.
            I don’t believe this is a hotbed habitat for Bigfoot, but I think they are here. And I think we don’t give them enough credit for being able to survive and adapt to many different types of habitat, and perhaps exist closer to humans than we might think.
            Case in point: An unidentified witness recently reported an interesting sighting in Schuyler County,  near Rushville (where I was born) in west-central Illinois that took place in 2000.  The witness claimed to have seen the creature in the headlights as he/she was driving north on Route 67,  just a little past Rushville. The witness allegedly saw a 7-foot, dark, muscular figure on two legs bend over and pick up something close to the road and was cradling it like a human would a baby. The creature then quickly ran for the woods with the bundle in its arms.
            This is an area I’m very familiar with. The area described by the witness is situated somewhat in between two of my family’s farms. It’s not wilderness, but it’s VERY rural. I’ve hiked some of the area’s woods and I haven’t seen Bigfoot. But I have had what I would call “experiences” out there that would lead me to believe there’s something to the reports. Large snapping trees, the feeling of being watched, sounds of large footsteps, etc.  And knowing the denseness of the woods as I do, and the deer population,  I believe firmly that Bigfoots could survive there very well.
            Who’s to say we don’t have a different strain of the creature here?  Maybe a strain that’s better adapted to living closer to humans? Reports suggest they exist in any areas in the world that provide cover. And there’s plenty of that in my area. It’s just situated differently and offers a different kind of challenge for hiding. But a smart creature could do it, I believe.
            And I also think the cast of Finding Bigfoot needs to change the way they think about Bigfoot in non-wilderness areas, and give Illinois a closer look. *******DF

Luxembourg Bigfoot Footge

This is an older video but it is a pretty good one. I don't really know much about this video. Take notice to the hands in the slow down clip. Also for some reason there was a little encoding error and the video really gets pixelated for a few seconds.

I did pull some still frames from the video and zoomed them in a little

Overall a good video and there is many things I like about it.

Track Comparison - Can You See The Difference?

Comparing bigfoot track castings.

(To view the larger photo Click Here )

I was looking around over at the Bigfoot Encounters website and ran across this comparison photo.
I find it very telling. It is clear that the fake wood track is not the same as the other castings.
Here is the close up of the Jerry Crew Track from 1958 that clearly shows this is not made with the fake wooden track by Wallace.

Now here is the close up of the Bob Titmus track also from 1958 and again clearly not made with the fake wooden Wallace track.

And last is the Roger Patterson track from 1964 and again clearly not made with the Wallace wooden track. One should also note this was about 3 years before Patterson filmed the bigfoot type creature that we call Patty.

After looking at this comparison it is clear that the Ray Wallace fake track is very different that the others. The Patterson, Crew and Titmus tracks appear to be more like a human foot track and the alignment of the toes seems much more real or believable.
This is a good example for us to study and note the differences between the tracks and the similarities.

Real Life Zombie Apocalypse?

By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher
Professional Writer, a nature and wildlife enthusiast who has written for many magazines.

Real Life Zombie Apocalypse?
How It Could Happen
By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher

If you’re thinking the zombie apocalypse is simply the stuff of fiction horror movies and doesn’t need to be taken seriously, think again. The United States government Center For Disease Control has a web page dedicated to telling citizens how to survive it, and more interesting yet, history suggests it’s happened before. (Link: CDC Zombies Info )

Archaeologists in Europe and the Middle East have recently unearthed evidence of a stone age culture of humans in which violently smashing the skulls of corpses was an accepted practice. And possibly considered a necessary one for some reason. A reason that isn’t yet clear, but it’s believed they felt they had some cause to believe the dead posed some kind of threat to the living. For some reason, they believed it was necessary to smash the skulls of the corpses, separate them from the body, and bury them somewhere else apart from the body. And based on other scientific studies of similar practices in ancient cultures, this was often to stop the dead from becoming some kind of danger.

Curiously the skulls were the skulls of males 18-30 of which the bodies had already begun to decompose. They had been smashed in a rather unceremonious fashion, like with a rock or something similar, and unglamorously removed from the spines. It was said that no trace of any "delicate cutting" was found on the bodies. This wasn’t neatly done. It’s almost like they were indifferent to these dead individuals. But the question is why.

Surely a scientific explanation will come in time. But for now, it raises a lot of questions of whether or not the ancients experienced some kind of unique "problem" with their dead.

And what about today? Why should we even entertain the idea of such a thing now?

I could go into a whole long scientific explanation, but the movie I Am Legend with Will Smith back in 2007 said it best.

In this sure-to-be future cult classic, Smith plays a scientist who just happens to be the last man on earth, struggling to survive on his own in post-apocalyptic New York City. The rest of the human race left has been infected by a horrible "vampiric" virus. An ultimately fatal superbug that leaves no trace of it original human to be recognized. A disease that, to me, is reminiscent of a mutated strain of rabies. Like rabies on steroids.

Smith’s character, Robert Neville, lives and searches for food, supplies, and a cure for this disease by day, but by night must hunker down in his own home on super lockdown as these voracious killer beings wander the streets of the city. A large population of a kind of walking dead of sorts.

Yes, it’s just a movie. But modern medicine suggests the implications are conceivable in exactly the right conditions. Something like this could conceivably happen.

So maybe the government has it right (this time). And maybe we should pay closer attention and not laugh it off. ******DF

The Disappointments of Bigfoot

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.
Genome Link: Sasquatch Genome

The Erickson Project Videos
One can not talk about the Ketchum DNA study without bringing up the Erickson Project. This was said to be directly related to the DNA study and have a pending release of HD footage videos of bigfoot. While the publishing of the Ketchum paper did bring about the release of a small clip of a sleeping bigfoot named Matilda it was quickly attacked by skeptics and critics. The Footage which appears below was later said to be a worked up Chewbacca mask.

Later some photos were leaked of Matilda and that only added fuel to the Chewbacca Mask theory.
 Photo by Bill Munn
The Erickson people have kept an extremely low profile over these last months. There are rumored to be many HD quality videos of bigfoot in their project. Why has nothing been released is a valid question. I still hold out some hope that at some point the videos will be released but so far disappointment has taken center stage.

The Justin Smeja Story -
If you have not heard of this one, here it is in a nut shell. Smeja and a buddy was out hunting and he killed two bigfoots, one of which was a child bigfoot.
When I first got some of the details about this story I thought it could be real. Smeja is a very experienced hunter and he seems like a pretty nice guy, but did he shoot 2 bigfoot remains to be proven.
Some DNA samples from this reported event was also included in the Ketchum DNA study and was confirmed to be from bigfoot, but later another sample was sent to a different lab and the results came back a bear and human. So what is one to believe? There are rumors of some infighting between Smeja and Ketchum, could this have anything to do with it?
Smeja did passed a lie detector test, but this was quickly met with doubts by believers and skeptics alike due to how it all came about. I personally don't have much of an opinion about the lie detector part as they can be fooled and passed and are not even allowed in some court cases depending on the state.
In the end no real proof this event happened has been presented in a way to really prove it was real.

Daisy in a Box Story -
This was the wildest most far fetched story to come down the pipe. Here was a elite secret unit of well trained sasquatch hunters, who managed to capture a live bigfoot. The only thing was there was no photos released and all the details were pretty vague. This was all started by a few post made on a forum and it grew it's own legs and started to run. This story was on almost every bigfoot blog and forum on the internet. In the end it turned out to be nothing more than a hoax. I personal was not disappointed in the story as I never believe it in the first place.
Extra Reading: Bigfoot Captured, Russian captured Bigfoot

The Tent Video -
I know everyone has heard about this story. Rick Dyer reportedly killed a bigfoot in San Antonio, TX. When I first got into this story I thought it could have been real but later on the story changed a little so I backed away from it as something just didn't seem right.
Several people backed the story (some still do) and a few confirmed that Dyer had a real bigfoot body. As of today there has been no body shown to the public. The movie that came out about this event was called "Shooting Bigfoot" and after the showing many people were disappointed by the ending. The ending of the film you get to see a bigfoot type creature for about 3 seconds and you hear some gun fire but that's it. You never see the body in the film.
What this story managed to do was get the infighting to an all time high with many personal attacks in every corner of the bigfoot world.
In the end there is still no proof that Dyer has a bigfoot body. The best evidence to support this story is the Tent Video itself.  It is a good video and has not officially been debunked (I guess) but there have been some reports that it is one of Dyer's friends (A large black man) dressed up or maybe in front of a green screen. There has been a ton of videos surrounding this story, I have made several myself, but in the end the body still has not been shown. The new target date for the showing of the body is said to be in August, this according to Dyer.
In the end this appears to be nothing more than a well rehearsed hoax.  I invite everyone to do some research yourself and view the massive amounts of info about this story and make up your own mind.

Here is a enhanced still frame from the Tent Video

Hunter Killed a Bigfoot -
This is/was a new "I shot bigfoot" story and it even had a police report, but the real story was that no where in the 911 dispatch or police report did it involve a dead or shot bigfoot. All the man said was he had proof of bigfoot and his proof turned out to be nothing more than some bear tracks.
So what fueled this story? well it seem a few bigfoot blog sites pushed it as a hunter killing a bigfoot, I'm not sure who or where they got the info but once a story like that gets out it grows on it's own.

Here is the 911 call

So as you can see disappointment in the bigfoot community has been coming a lot the last several months but don't let it get you down. This is not all of the disappointing stories, there are plenty more and I expect more to come in the future. I didn't even cover all the stump photos that are reported to be bigfoot.
These type of stories seem to do more harm to the bigfoot community as a whole than good. The infighting and the name calling has really went overboard the last year. This type of thing really takes away from people who are really trying to do honest research. It seems the wild stories and claims get a lot of attention but I guess that is the point.
2013 was said to be the year of bigfoot but so far it has turned out to be  mostly disappointing. Sometimes life in general has disappointing moments but you can't give up, you just got to keep moving forward.

Hopefully the rest of the year will be filled with some good and true bigfoot stories. So lets just keep on squatchin'. (yeah I hate that word)
Have a great Summer!

Pizza Shop Ghost

On 4/22/2007 the fire department was dispatched to a local pizza shop with a reported fire.
Sure enough the pizza shop was on fire. Someone snapped a photo.

Pizza shop on fire.
If you will notice it appears to be ghostly looking figure walking behind the van on the left.

Here is a couple enhancements of the photo

Could this be ghostly images of victims of the fire? or is it just some kind of camera error?
I don't know if anyone even died in the fire or not but it does appear to be legs walking behind the van. I also do not know where this photo was taken.
What do you think?

UFO Researchers Meet with Ministry of Defense

Members of the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers was invited by the Ministry of Defense in Brazil to a formal meeting with Brazilian armed forces members. The meeting was scheduled on April 18, 2013 at the headquarters of the Ministry of Defense. It featured officers from Brazilian Army, Navy and Air Force.

The discussion focused on the access of UFO-related documents under the military custody. Brazilian government has already declassified more than 4,500 documents but some documents on the more popular cases are not yet released including the Trindade Island sightings, Mearim covertte event and Varginha Case.

Ari Matos, who is the secretary for the Institutional Coordination and Organization of the ministry, reassured the group that all procedures in releasing the documents will be in accordance to Access to Information Act of Brazil or popularly known as LAI.

The meeting which lasted for approximately 75 minutes seemed to bring positive results as everyone involved appeared to be satisfied. According to Brazilian UFO Magazine editor, A.J. Gevaerd, it was the first time in the history of the country that a Ministry of Defense invited UFO researchers to talk about the UFO phenomena and the protocol to be observed in handling its investigation and the information that may come from it.

Another Ufologist in the meeting, Fernando Aragao Ramalho of UFO Magazine, also pleased with the meeting and considered the day as one of the major event in the history of Ufology.

The meeting was in response to a petition that asked the Brazilian government to declassify all UFO documents from their UFO investigations and take UFO sightings seriously. The petition was sponsored by the Brazilian UFO Magazine and created during a Brazilian UFO conference in December 2012 with signatures from the 30 speakers at the conference. The conference represented 15 different countries and had more than 600 attendees.

Know Your Cryptids - The Ahool

The Ahool is a flying cryptid and is reportedly a very bat like creature but some say it is more like a flying primate. The connection to primates could be due to how the head and face has been described as looking like a monkey. The Ahool lives in the rainforest of Java, Java is a island in Indonesia.
The Ahool is named after the sound it reportedly makes, which is reportedly a cooing type sound.
The Ahool is described as having dark eyes, large claws on it's forearms, covered in fur and a 10-12  foot wingspan.
Many think this unknown creature could actually be a large brown wood owl or an undiscovered bat of some sort. The wood owl might explain some of the cooing sounds, as they are similar, but the size would not be big enough, I don't think. So that leaves us with the bat theory, the largest bat is the fruit bat, also sometimes called flying foxes, they can grow to around 20-22 inches in length and have a wingspan of about 6 foot. So if the tales about the Ahool are true, then the fruit bat is undersized as well. It could be a case of embellishment causing the size of the creature to grow, sometimes things seem larger if you are frightened and surprised. Plus one should consider that this could very well be an as of yet undiscovered creature.

Is this a REAL Bigfoot!

The Photo above was post to facebook by Thom Cantrall - It appears to be a picture of a bigfoot.
I noticed several other people where sharing the photo, so I thought I'd take a closer look at it. If Thom does not approve of this and wants me to take it down all he has to do is send me a message.
I have attempted to zoom in on the figure and have used various effects to get a better look at it.

I find the photo very interesting but do not know anything about it. I do not even know where it was take or the story. I do know Thom is a good guy and this photo is possibly a real bigfoot.
A big Thanks goes to Thom Cantrall for sharing the photo.

UPDATE:  Thanks to Candy over at Sasquatch Canada we now have more information about this photo. The photo was original posted by a Kris Friesen from Winnipeg. The picture was sent to him by a friend that took the picture up in northern Manitoba, a secluded area near a native reserve.
Hopefully more info will become available.

Expect us Mystery of 5/19/13

Today I was made aware of the Expect US website and the mystery surrounding it. I would guess the biggest mystery is just who is US?
Some are tying this to a possible terror attack in the vain of 9/11 while others are thinking along the lines of Aliens and some are saying it will be the Rapture or the retuning of Christ. I think we can rule out the returning of Christ because the bible say that "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." (Matt.24:36)

I personally don't know what this mystery is all about and I'm a very late viewer of the website and the mystery about it. The photo above is a screen grab of the website, the website has a count down timer running on it and a eerie image in the background.
here is a lightened version of the screen grab.

I also did some digging on the domain name of this site and here is some of that info.
Domain Name:

   Registrant Contact: Private Registrant
      A Happy DreamHost Customer
      417 Associated Rd #324
      Brea, CA 92821

Record created on 2010-08-02 08:28:32.
   Record expires on 2013-08-02 08:28:32.

You can find out a little more info -

As you can see above this website domain name was purchased in 2010, so it appears this mystery has been in the works for a few years now.

There has been a lot of UFO/Alien stuff going on, like the Citizens hearing on Disclosure, so could it be something about ETs and UFOs? Maybe.

Here is a video about the "Expect US" website

There is also some talk of a "Signal" or "The Signal" being broadcast starting on 5/19/13 on the 5/19/13 website. It is also my understanding that several websites have been threatened by "Anonymous" to take down their websites.

So there you have it, this was only going to be a short post but as I dug it grew.
Just what is all this 5/19/13 mystery stuff about I'm not sure but it could be anything from Aliens to a website launch. I guess we will know tomorrow.

UPDATE:  I have ran across a 5/19/13 Facebook page, it was created back in Sept. of  2010
There are some new signs pointing to a cyber attack on banks but it is still anybody's guess to what will really happen if anything.
