Was Melba Ketchum raped by a Bigfoot!? Yes, I realize that this is an incredible story, and it seems to strange to be believed. However, I have been told that Ketchum recently told at least 4 different people this story.
Here is what happened, according to her: Ketchum is leasing property somewhere in Texas, possibly in East Texas, where there is a Bigfoot habituation site. It is here that she says she has seen the Bigfoots and discovered that they braided the manes on her horses, among other odd things.
One day Melba went out to a part of her pasture “where the Bigfoots like to hang out.” This is an odd part of the pasture. She says that as soon as you open the gate to this part of the property, “you are likely to get zapped.” By this she apparently means hit by Bigfoot infrasound. Frightening! She apparently went out there to attend to her horses in some manner.
At some point while she was attending to her horses, she seems to have lost conscientiousness. Then she had some sort of a “lost time” event. Say she was with the horses at 7 PM. Next thing she knew, she woke up and it was say 9 PM. When she awoke, she became aware somehow (not sure how) that she had been unconscious for quite some time. Spooky!
She was lying on the ground in her pasture, possibly clad in a dress. At that time, she became aware that she was “sore” in her vaginal area. There was no reason for her to feel that way. She concluded that a Bigfoots may have somehow zapped her, rendered her unconscious somehow, and possibly raped her. Shivers!
The odd part of the story is that she was fully clothed, possibly in a dress. The problem is that if she was fully clothed, including underwear, rape is not really possible. The Bigfoot would have had to have removed her underwear and then put it back on, or else push the panties aside. I don’t think they do things like that. However, if she was panty-less, she could well have been raped. Spooky!
A female friend has told me that there are other signs that a woman has been raped. For instance, if ejaculation has occurred in the vagina, a woman is generally aware of this fact. I do not know if Ketchum had any other signs of being raped such as that.
I also do not know if Ketchum reported the incident to authorities or had a rape test done. I don’t know what good a rape test or reporting it to the authorities would do anyway, as no crime was committed, and at the moment, we have no way to determine Bigfoot semen from human semen.
The person who told me this story reported it as evidence that Ketchum has gone completely off the deep end. They have a low opinion of her anyway.
I would like to take a more charitable approach. I believe that Ketchum may well have some Bigfoots habituating on this property of hers. She may well have been interacting with them there in various ways for some time now. At this point, Ketchum is, for better or for worse, a habituator.
Habituators often report having a lot of very weird experiences while they are in close contact with the Bigfoots on their land. It appears that Ketchum may have already experienced some of this strange stuff, such as ultrasound.
It’s possible that Ketchum had a very strange experience out there in the pasture that day or night. Some odd things happened to her that she is trying to make sense of in whatever way she can. She is trying to piece together a plausible story to account for the bizarre things she is experiencing. This is her groping attempt at an explanation.
Although my source told me that they heard Melba tell them this story and that she also told at least three others, Melba’s friends are disputing the story.
Linda Sedlak, a good friend of Melba’s, released this statement to me about the rumored incident:
I have recently been made aware of a story going around regarding Melba Ketchum, and an encounter with a Sasquatch. This story is totally false with absolutely no basis in reality. Please do not continue to spread these hateful, hurtful, and horrible rumors.
In addition, a source close to Ketchum asked Melba about the rumors and Ketchum said that none of it is true, and that she never told anyone anything like this.
In closing, I would like to extend my utmost sympathy to Ketchum if she was indeed violated by a Bigfoot. If it occurred, I doubt if this is an experience she wanted to have. It could well be a very traumatizing experience for a woman. Rape’s no joking matter, and all female victims deserve our most profound sympathy.
So there you have it folks. You can believe whatever you want to believe here. No one knows what really happened, and we may never know.
I do believe that Bigfoots rape women sometimes. I have heard that nowadays these are the nasty-tempered or ill-behaved Bigfoots. In the Janice Carter story, which I believe to be a largely factual account, Carter reports that an evil minded young Bigfoot raped a 13 or 14 year old girl in the woods near the Carter farm. The girl was so upset that she spent the rest of her life in a mental hospital. Creepy!
According to Indians, Bigfoots can and do mate with female humans. In the Albert Ostman story, Ostman told John Green that he thought the older male Bigfoot had kidnapped him to try to get him to mate with his nubile teenage hottie Bigfoot daughter. Indian reports say that Bigfoots used to steal Indian women and take them back to caves where they had sex with the women. Scary stuff!
In some cases, the women would return a year or so later, pregnant. In a number of cases, half-Bigfoot, half-human babies were born out of these unions. Ostman says that male Bigfoots have a surprisingly small penis for their size, so sex with a human female should be easy to accomplish on the female human end. Lugubrious!
Whatever the truth of the story about Ketchum, it is surely one of the oddest stories that has come out of Bigfootery in a while. And it’s a pretty scary story for Halloween to boot!
Delays in Ketchum Bigfoot DNA paper explained. A source close to the Ketchum project informed me that there is indeed a paper, that it is apparently at a journal, and that it has gone through repeated rewrites. The source, a young man with a PhD, told me, They want to make sure that everything is perfect, I mean 100% perfect.”
This is due to the strange and wild nature of the subject. The journal wants to make sure that all the science is good so they will not be humiliated as the subject matter is so odd and controversial. The journal is doing this to ensure their own reputation.
The paper has already gone through four major rewrites and many smaller rewrites. After every major rewrite, the paper is delayed by 6-8 weeks. So you can see that the paper has already been delayed by 6-8 months by major rewrites. The source said there is a delay after a rewrite because “then the paper goes back to the end of the line for publication again.”
I reported recently that the best information about the paper is that it passed peer review and they are trying to get photo and video evidence available to add weight to the paper. That seems to be the best theory to date.
On the subject of the Ketchum paper, I would suggest that you read “Science Critic” in the thread about the Ketchum Report. He’s one of the best posters on there, and I think his theories about this paper are correct.
Yeti hair reportedly tests positive for a new hominid. Yeti hair gathered by my friend Igor Bourtsev in a cave in Kemerovo, Russia has reportedly tested as a new hominid via separate genetic testing in Moscow and Idaho. I am wondering if the Idaho testing involved Jeff Meldrum?
The tests indicate that the Yeti is about 99% similar to a human and closer to a human than to a chimp. As Denisova also shares ~99% of its DNA with humans, that sounds about right for Bigfoots. I believe that the results of the Ketchum study may find something along similar lines of 99-99.5% similarity with humans.
Sykes study ready to roll. Dr. Brian Sykes of Oxford, who is running a parallel DNA study to Ketchum’s, has now gathered 20 purported Bigfoot samples that he feels have good chain of custody. He is ready to start testing them soon. I believe that Sykes was told ahead of time of the results of Ketchum’s study and that is what led him to do his study. He probably would not have undertaken this study blindly unless he thought it might be fruitful.
Ketchum study worried about being upstaged by Sykes study. A source in the Ketchum camp, an older academic at a university, told me that there are people on Ketchum’s team who are worried about the endless frustrating delays in publication of her paper.
People are grasping at straws to come up with any story they possibly can to try to explain the delays. One theory, albeit a rather paranoid one, is that Sykes team at Oxford may be using their academic pull to delay Ketchum’s paper so Sykes can upstage her. However, there is no evidence as yet whether this is actually occurring or not.
Foolish nonsense of MABRC and whether or not they had a Bigfoot body. I reported that Ed Smith (kook) posted in the MABRC forum, “Good luck with your post-capture goals.” Whoa! That’s an odd statement. I then asked whether that meant that MABRC or Ed’s group had a body? Perfectly legitimate thing to ask. Never once did I say they had a body. I simply asked for clarification of a very oddly worded statement.
DW Lee (kook) then turned the whole affair into an idiotic attention-getting circus to drum up publicity for his Bigfoot group, which is widely loathed by the way. Idiotically, DW said, “We neither confirm nor deny that we have a body. We do say that Ed Smith is our friend.” Way to go clown! That clears up absolutely nothing for us!
DW then started a ridiculous thread on BF Forums being coy, evasive and generally whoring his group. Then he made a similar, totally ridiculous appearance on MBRT Radio which was one of the biggest wastes of 90 minutes I have experienced. At two points a long ways into the pointless interview, DW stated that he had no body. Finally towards the end, Ed came on nearly the 90 minute mark and said he had no body either.
The behavior of Smith and DW in this matter was deplorable, and both of them, but especially DW, behaved histrionically in the best male drama queen fashion. Yuck!
It later turned out that the whole publicity affair, the DW post on BF Forums and the interview, was a big charade in order to attack the “yellow journalism” (LOL) of yours truly. Whatever.
As it turns out, “post-capture goals” refers to several “live Bigfoot traps” that Ed Smith and his group have set up over a large area of property in Oklahoma. Chilling! How they expect to capture a live Bigfoot in one of these is beyond me. Smith and Lee are complete kooks, but perhaps their research efforts will be rewarded someday. In this field, the biggest kooks of all sometimes acquire some very good evidence, which is a pretty pitiful statement right there! Actually, it’s downright frightening!
Sykes study looking at a European (possibly Irish) resident as possible Bigfoot descendant. Apparently this person’s back story checks out very well as a possible part-Bigfoot descendant. Scary! For whatever reason, the person does not want to come forth and give their DNA to the study, but the Sykes people are still working on them.
This line of research may have been enabled by Rhettman Mullis, one of our finest Bigfoot researchers, who has done some superb work along these lines in the US. I understand that Mullis has been researching a possible part Bigfoot descendant in the Pacific Northwest, an Indian man who died around 1930. Frightening! The man had children, and Mullis is trying to track down his children. He is also trying to find the man’s grave so it can possibly be exhumed. Scary!
Ketchum closing her DNA testing lab. This has been the subject of much rumor and speculation from the Ketchum haters. It appears she is merely selling her veterinary DNA testing business and is moving to another city where she will focus solely on DNA forensic, academic and research projects. She is said to owe back taxes, and there has been much speculation about her financial affairs, mostly centering on the rumor that she may be broke.
I doubt if she is broke. A couple of years ago, it is true that she did not have much business and had a hard time even paying her mortgage. However, the Bigfoot study has been a huge cash cow for her, so much so that concerned friends of Wally Hersom worried that Ketchum and those around her were using Hersom as a personal ATM machine. Hersom has been singlehandedly funding the entire DNA project, and he has filled Ketchum’s coffers well.
Whereas before she did not travel outside the US much to my knowledge, she is now a woman who regularly travels overseas, especially to Europe. I would guess that she is doing very well financially and is probably at least upper middle class. She owes back taxes? I would guess that she is making good money but is spending more than she is making as many well-off folks do.
That will be all for now folks and Happy Halloween!
