Missouri is home to several mysterious mystery creatures and tales. One of the most famous is the  Momo. The Momo is said to be a Bigfoot type of creature that is covered in hair. Momo is short for Missouri Monster and it was first reported in 1971.

I recently received an interesting sighting report from Missouri, could there be a connection to the Momo?

Here is the report and some of the follow up questions.

Mock up photo of the report.
In my travels and research I sometimes run across some interesting reports about Bigfoot. The report featured today was one that I was not familiar with and can't recall hearing about it. The case comes from Washington County, Missouri. Missouri is home to a bigfoot like beast known as MOMO. The name Momo is just a short term for Missouri Monster.

It seems that a call came into the sheriffs office a little after 2am that a man had shot a 7 foot tall "hairy beast" 9 times at point blank range.  The call was taken very seriously and about a dozen officers, from two different police departments, were dispatched to an areas known as Hamilton Hollow.

Momo Monster (Original Photo by Corey and Tye)Mock up photo for reference only.
Back in 2015, researchers Corey and Tye, had what the believe to be an encounter with the Momo.
For those who may not know the term Momo here is some info about it.
Momo is the name of a local legend, similar to the Bigfoot, which is reported to live in Missouri. The name Momo is short for 'Missouri Monster' and it is reported to have a large, pumpkin-shaped head, with a furry body, and hair covering the eyes. The Momo was first reported in July 1971.

Well, just a few days ago, I got some messages from Corey and Tye and they think that the Momo maybe be back in their research area.
Here is some of what they reported to me.

"The Momo (missouri monster) is back!!! 
We had an encounter with it at 12:32 this morning. This is the third time we heard it jump off the riverbank this year and everytime it is dead quiet and eerie and no echoes. There was no dogs barking anywhere. 
We had little bigfoot activity. We think our bigfoot group avoids this monster as well other animal. This creature may be responsible for the dismembered pets in town. We will send you a pic of where it hangs out. We haven't checked for footprints or other evidence yet but plan to. Very hot right now."

The above picture is the picture Corey and Tye sent to me. It is the location that they believe the creature frequents often. Just for reference, I added in the Momo figure in the photograph.
The Momo has been described as having a terrible odor and for being somewhat aggressive. While it is thought by many to be some type of bigfoot, reports suggest it is more aggressive that it's bigfoot counterpart.

I also received another update from Corey and Tye, here is what they had to say.

"This is where the Missouri Monster hangs out. (referring to the above picture at the top of this page) Yesterday around 8:30 pm Tye smelled an unholy stench that made her gag. I was down by river investigating but I didn't see or hear anything. The creature was in the tall scrubs on the left side of the picture (top of page). After I left, I went down the road to meet up with her but did not smell anything. We both went back to the spot and it was gone. We did smell it around 10:40 which instantly faded away. We smell this regularly on this section of road but Tye said this was the raunchiest she's ever smelt. No bigfoot activity last night. This thing is bad news!!! We plan to go back down again tonight.  "     

Back in 1978, Terry, Wiley and Dorris Harrison reported seeing the creature. The Harrison's reported that the creature was seen in their yard holding a blood dog's head. They estimated the creature to be between 6-7 foot tall. The activity continued for roughly 2 weeks. Tracks were found and submitted to Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden director, Lawrence Curtis. Curtis said the tracks where from an unknown primate species.

Here is a list of other possible sightings of the Momo.

1982, July 14 - Friday - Richard Bliss, Edgar Harrison, Police Officer Ruffin hear growls and screams, upon investigating local law enforcement found unidentifiable hair fibers.

1992, July 20 - Thursday - Several witnesses at 10:00 pm near Marzolf Hill smell the stench of the creature, described as "rotting flesh" and "foul stagnant water".

1992, July 21 - Friday - The creature is seen again on River Road by Ellis Minor, 63. The creature was 20 feet away when Minor shined a flashlight across it. He described it as having dark black hair down to its chest. No eyes could be seen. The creature whirled around and ran away.

1999, July 22, Saturday - Two plaster casts are made of the monster's tracks and black hair was gathered by Heyden Hewes and Daniel Garcia which were sent to zoologist Ivan Sanderson.

2003, August 3 - Bill and Betty Suddarth hear a high-pitched howl from the front yard of their house located northwest of town in early morning. Tracks are seen in the rain-soaked earth. Plaster casts are taken by Clyde Penrod. The tracks appeared abruptly in the center of the garden and then ended without going anywhere. The plaster casts were displayed at Penrod's Auto Parts at Fifth and Georgia Streets in Louisiana, Missouri.

So, there is a pretty good detailed history of sightings of the Momo.
Maybe with the continuous efforts of researchers like Corey and Tye, we can gather more information about Momo. Is it just an aggressive strain of Bigfoot or is it a totally different species? We just don't know at this point.

I thank Corey and Tye for sharing their research with all of us.

General area of event
I got in a Bigfoot report from my friend Tye. She is a Bigfoot researcher and outdoorswoman in the Iowa area. Here is her report.

- Start Report - 

Name: Tye

Email Address: On file

State: Iowa

County: Van Buran

Date of Sighting: March 10 ,2015

Time of Day: 10:30 pm

Nearest Town: Bentonsport

Length of Sighting: about 10 minutes

How many Witnesses: myself

Any Photos/Videos: none

Describe sighting in detail:

It was about 10:30 pm, I was sitting at the Des Moines river on the ledge right at the water, when I heard a rock being thrown in, and a second later I heard another kaboosh , and then a third. I turned my head to look and there was this huge hairy, looked like a man but bigger, thing standing there. It was so big it blocked out a light on the water from a distant house. When it saw me look it ducked down in the reeds, it stood back up and by then I was standing up looking closer, it then ducked down again. A car happened to pull in the boat dock and when I looked at it and looked back to the creature it was gone.

I thought I saw it take off way down river towards the dark, now Corey was standing some distance behind me, which I was unaware of, and he saw nothing of the creature. I wasn't sure what it was until Corey showed me a picture of a Missouri Momo , and I was shocked , that is exactly what I saw. I did not see any face because of the matted hair. It had very wide shoulders and I only saw from chest on up. Momo is very real and was here in southeast Iowa in Bonaparte that night. About 2 or 3 weeks later I Saw glowing orange eyes down river when we were squatchin, I don't know if it was Momo but my fear level Was off the charts. It seems that it has vanished and I haven't had that level of fear since then.

- End Report -

Thanks for the report Tye and keep up the good work. Feel free to contact us with any new findings.

This video was posted to youtube by user Doug Johnson. The beast seen in the video is MASSIVE but is it a bigfoot?
I just did a quick analysis of the video.  It's a cool video and I enjoyed playing around with it. I don't know if the guys filming the video knew what it was or not.

Thanks

!!Watch in HD, for what it's worth!!

I have attempted to enhance the William Evans video "baby bf in craw of tree".
Mr. Evans reportedly shot the video in Northern California back in 2007.
It was also stated that there is up to 4 bigfoot in the video, 2 of which are almost impossible to see.
It is also reported that Evans filmed this while holding the camera at his waist and it took a long time for the bigfoot to let him get this close.
This is a very good video and William Evans did a great job, I don't think he (Evans) gets enough credit for this video.
The first time I saw this video was from the gang over at Facebook FindBigfoot, while I do not always agree with their analysis, they did a great job with their breakdown of this video. So they should also get some credit.

Here is a couple of enhanced still frames from the video



Thanks
Tom

Bigfoot in Price,Utah?
This photo surfaced a few days ago over on the BFRO Fourms , a link to the pictures was posted up by the user Hubkapp1. This is supposedly a picture of a bigfoot taken in Price,Utah. It was in a story done by Ogden Standard Examiner back in 2009. I did a quick search of the website (Here) but could not find the story. I do not know the back story or much about the photo. Most are just dismissing it as a total fake. It does appear very large and bulky,could have shoulder pads on.

Here is a zoom in on the creature

It appears pretty big, there are some things I like about the photo and a couple of things I don't.
If anyone has more info about the origin of this picture feel free to contact me.

Thanks
Tom

One very clear figure and maybe more



“Patty” Wasn’t Alone That Day At Bluff Creek

A Fresh Look At The Patterson-Gimlin Film

By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher


            Most primates live in small groups. Should sasquatches be any different?
The famous Patterson-Gimlin film taken at Bluff Creek, California way back in 1967 was always said to be a film of a single sasquatch female walking across a dry creek bed and into the cover of the woods only to disappear. But if primates live in groups, especially females, was she really alone that day?
            The film has been subject to scrutiny for years, but no one has ever been able to completely debunk it. And no one has ever been able to create a costume that compares with the creature in the film. And since often only one of the creatures is spotted at a time, we’re conditioned to believe they are solitary creatures that travel and hunt alone.  But interestingly enough, no one has ever looked at anything else in the film except the main subject affectionately known by bigfoot enthusiasts as “Patty.”
            But if you watch the film more closely and look behind her on the hill, there seems to be other things going on. There are some very dark figures moving ever so slightly in the woods in the background. Could there be more of the creatures hiding in the brush? Could there be a whole group of them there?
Random youtube video of the Patterson film, 2nd figure is seen standing
            The Crypto Crew’s very own team leader Tom Marcum, a video and photo expert, decided to take a closer look at the background in the film. And one day he spent hours going frame by frame and working with still shots until he reached an astonishing conclusion.
            When he came across a frame that looked curious, he highlighted it to the maximum, only to discover at least three other figures that can be identified as possible primates in the dark woods.  And then there are many other dark figures that are not so recognizable that could possibly be others.
Zoom from the above random youtube video of the Patterson film
 
            But it became clear that Patty wasn’t alone at Bluff Creek that day. She had her whole family

 with her nearby.  Roger Patterson swore to the film’s authenticity till his dying day.

And Tom’s hard work gives it even more credibility.  ********
