Exciting news on Musky Allen’s visit to view Rick Dyer’s Bigfoot body. I am now 100% sure that Dyer shot and killed last September in San Antonio, Texas.
One reason is that I just learned some more about Allen’s visit to Las Vegas when he viewed the body. One thing I was uncertain about was whether or not Dyer was fooling Allen with a clever Hollywood movie prop. I was not sure whether Allen could tell the difference between a movie prop and a real dead body.
For the record, I know both Allen and the Facebook/Find Bigfoot guys, and neither of them is on any kind of a hoax. However, it remains possible that they are being hoaxed by Dyer, himself a notorious hoaxer.
Yet I just learned that when Allen went to see the body at Las Vegas, he was taken to an official US government facility. It was also a location with a very high degree of security. This was one of the main reasons why Allen had to sign so many documents before he viewed the body – because it is being held at that secure facility. There is absolutely no way that this government locale with all that security would be in on any kind of a hoax. It is not possible.
I have also learned that when Allen was viewing the body, there was another man present who was looking to buy Dyer’s body. This man had a physician there with him to figure out if it was a Hollywood prop or a real dead creature. Within two minutes, the physician determined that this was an actual dead creature of some sort.
Did the FB/FB guys view Dyer’s body? I have not been able to determine whether or not they were able to view the body, but it is possible that they did see it. They only issued a standard no comment disclaimer when I asked them.
Derek Randles may not see Dyer’s body. My understanding is that Dyer is not going to let anymore people see the body until the reveal, so I doubt if Randles is going to see the body.
Minnow Films will issue a statement on the movie Shooting Bigfoot next week. The statement will be issued by none other than Morgan Matthews himself. Minnow stated that it is not normal protocol for Matthews to issue a statement about one of his films, but this film contains something of particular interest, necessitating the statement by the director. We can only imagine what this statement will say.
Shooting Bigfoot will show soon on BBC Storyville. According to a tweet on BBC Storyville’s Twitter feed, the movie will show soon, but they do not have an official date yet.
New interview with me up. I was interviewed on the Mind Cemetery show on the Paranormal Network Internet radio station. The interview was also broadcast on a radio station in New Orleans, but I haven’t been able to find out its radio handle. It seems to be an obscure station. Mind Cemetery is a UFO network, but the interview was only about Bigfoot. The talk ranged for two hours. The host was an immensely personable fellow, and I enjoyed the discussion very much.
New version of the Tent Video is out with full audio. FB/FB has released a new version of Dyer’s Tent Video with the full audio. Some of the audio was edited out of the version released previously. The part that was edited out has the BBC crew whispering to Dyer, “Rick! Rick!” They are alerting him that a Bigfoot is outside his tent eating the ribs. Of course, Rick was already up and fumbling around for his rifle by that time. He then ran out with his rifle, but he froze up and could not shoot the Bigfoot. Nevertheless, a three minute segment of the Bigfoot eating the ribs was shot by the film crew. I knew about this missing audio segment for a long time, but I was not allowed to report on it.
Loren Coleman has left Cryptomundo. There has been some huge fallout between Coleman and Craig Woolheater, the result of which is that Coleman has left Cryptomundo to found a new website. What is funny is that I always thought that Cryptomundo was Coleman’s site. Actually, it is Woolheater’s site. Coleman is doing a good job on his new site, in fact, it is better than the old site!
Coleman is a very educated man. He has an MA in psychology and has worked as some sort of a counselor before. He has also penned some excellent tracts on social psychology. He seems to be particularly knowledgeable about the psychology of mass shooters, about which he has written lately. Coleman is no dummy!
Am I in on the Dyer hoax? Most people insist that Rick Dyer is hoaxing this latest body claim. I have been warned many times not to support him because people will say that I am in on the hoax. The problem with that is that Dyer and I have no relationship whatsoever. In fact, at the moment, we apparently hate each other. Well, at least I hate him and will until he stops libeling me. He doesn’t seem too fond of me, otherwise he would not attack me so much on his site. He is also savagely attacking some very good friends of mine, and I am not too happy about that.
Obviously, in many ways, Rick Dyer is simply not an honorable man. His drunken, obscenity- and threat-filled video tirades are embarrassing. He viciously goes after any and all perceived enemies in a manner that can only be called pathological. He has hoaxed the community repeatedly, and he made $50,000 off the 2008 hoax. He continued to hoax the community up until early this year. He apparently defrauded people who went on his Bigfoot hunts by having a friend run by in a Bigfoot costume. Rick laughed while discussing this, chortling about how he was fleecing the rubes. At his base essence, Rick Dyer is simply a long-term con artist.
He has been arrested a couple of times recently for some disturbing things. Charges were dropped in both cases – in one case when he returned stolen property and in another case when he agreed to not beat up his wife. Although charges were dropped, he appears to have been guilty of these offenses.
As you can see, this guy has a list of transgressions longer than the phone book. Even if he were friendly to me, it might take a bit of an effort to like such a willful and amoral flim-flam man. On top of that, I am on his enemies’ list for some reason.
As you can see, even if Rick were hoaxing, I could not profit from it in any way because Rick and I have no relationship. I actually would not mind being on friendly terms with the fellow, but that is probably not going to happen due to my role as a truth-seeking investigative reporter. What is sad is that at this point, it is probably better for Rick and I to be at odds with each other as opposed to being on amicable terms. Because as soon as Rick and I get on friendly terms, people will say that I am “in on the hoax.” Now is that pitiful or what? When it’s better to be enemies than to be friends with someone for pragmatic reasons, it’s a sorry day.
Dyer does have a good side. It is said that he donated some of his recent proceeds to charity. What I think he really did was he bought off or paid off some of the homeless people where he shot the Bigfoot in San Antonio, possibly as hush money. Or maybe he just felt sorry for homeless people having been around them filming for a couple of weeks.
Anyway, narcissists often like to position themselves as major do-gooders out to benefit mankind. They set up charitable or self help groups or foundations, declare themselves dedicated to a life of helping others, make a lot of money and give it away to “inferior, loser” relatives as a way to be superior, make discoveries that save lives and help others. The life-saver, do-gooder, charity guy image feeds into their narcissism about what a great person they are. This is not really a bad aspect of narcissism; in fact, it is one of the good aspects. The take-home point is that they are helping others not out of altruism but in order to feel better about themselves, but maybe at the end of the day, that is a mere quibble .
Dyer may have a good relationship with his wife most of the time and may be good to his kids. Musky Allen met him and said he can be a charming fellow, a nice guy. But these types can often be charming and pleasant when they want to be.
I also feel that Dyer may be motivated by redemption in this latest case. He wants to be redeemed for the humiliation he received when he was excoriated as a hoaxer and reviled by much of humanity. Why would such a nasty fellow want redemption for his sins? Bad people don’t care if they are bad. Bad people don’t feel bad; they don’t feel guilty. Rick feels bad and feels guilty on some level, hence the undoing.
How can a bad person want redemption? Answer: Rick Dyer isn’t all bad. Or as my mother would say, “Well,” and then a thoughtful pause. “People are complicated.”
Black and white is for children and lazy thinkers. It’s an exaggeration to say everything’s a grey area, but that’s more a sliding towards truth than childish Manichean splitting.
Dr. Melba Ketchum Bigfoot DNA study reached strange conclusions. Ketchum says that Bigfoots are closer to lemurs than to anything else. Sorry but that makes no sense at all. None, zero, zip. Back to the drawing board, Melba.
No contamination in Ketchum DNA findings. There is some little-known evidence that there is no contamination in her samples: Ketchum tested the Bigfoot nuDNA for several human genes, the names of which you can find in the manuscript. MC1R (human/Neanderthal red-hair color gene) showed up in the Bigfoot nuDNA as did the human antigen gene TAP1 (most of the time) and the jaw muscle gene MYH16 (which when present showed only a human profile rather than an ape one).
Not discussed in the manuscript are the tests Ketchum did for the TYR gene, which is associated with skin pigmentation, and the HAR1 gene, which is a “human accelerated region” associated with human neurological development. The human skin color gene TYR and human brain gene HAR1 were not found in Bigfoot nuDNA. Now that in and of itself is very interesting.
If the samples really were just bear or coyote or bobcat smeared with human contamination, all of the human genes should show up all over the place. The peer-reviewers for Ketchum’s manuscript only wanted positive, not negative, results included for gene tests, so the TYR and HAR1 data are not discussed in the manuscript. However, you can see the remnants of it in the Supplemental Data 12 appendix. The bottom line is the Bigfoot nuDNA is missing some important human genes that should be there if the nuDNA were in fact simply contaminated with human DNA.
Furthermore, if the samples were simply bears, coyotes or whatever with no human contamination present, the human genes listed above would not be there at all.
The conclusion is that the “contamination” meme bandied about is simply a red herring. Ketchum’s DNA results, whatever they were and whatever they mean, were simply not a result of contamination in any way, shape or form. Critics really need to get over the contamination BS.
Possible explanation for anomalous Ketchum and Smeja/Cutino results for the Bigfoot steak from the Sierra Kills. The results indicate that the submissions were from two different objects, not a single object. Cutino/Smeja’s results ended up with MtDNA haplotypes A and T2, and Ketchum’s MtDNA results indicate haplotype H1A for Sample 26 (the Sierra Kills Bigfoot steak). Apparently these were two completely different objects being tested. I have no explanation for the anomalous results or why there were two objects when there was said to be only two pieces of a single object.
Greenbriar Sporting Club Bigfoot trailcam photo. This photo was taken by a trailcam at the Greenbriar Sporting Club, which I believe is in West Virginia. They didn’t recover the photo until weeks later, and by that time, they had cut down the stump. As you can see, the Bigfoot is sitting on the stump, apparently grubbing it from bugs to eat. It is blending in perfectly with the stump. There was a lot of controversy about this photo, with a lot of folks simply saying that it is a tree stump. Others said it was hoaxed, but I doubt it.
The people at the club said that visitors had been reporting a lot of Bigfoot sightings in recent years. The area has become totally overrun with deer, and this is what the Bigfoots are apparently preying on. I believe this is a photo of a Bigfoot, not a stump and not a hoax.
Allegations of hoaxing at the Adrian Erickson Project site in Crittenden, Kentucky are wrong. The latest allegation is that the owners of the site were hoaxing Erickson, Dennis Pfohl and Dr. Leila Hadj-Chikh at the site, possibly by using one or more of their friends to run around in a Bigfoot suit while the researchers took photos and videos of the hoaxers. However, this cannot possibly be the case. If this were true, there must be some awfully big hillbillies out there in Kentucky. Why is that? Because according to Erickson, Pfohl and Hadj-Chikh who all observed him, the large male at the site was anywhere from 9-10 feet tall! Do you know any 9 1/2 foot hillbillies? Neither do I.
Bigfoots are people. Look at the various drawings below to see how the latest thinking that Bigfoots are people and not apes, more like us than we want to believe, is the new and improved way of viewing these creatures. First, a drawing of Rick Dyer’s Bigfoot based on dozens of conversations between the artist and Musky Allen.
It is said that the nose in the Tent Video and in Allen’s rendition are not the same. However, look at the graphic below.
Let us look now at some drawings by Harvey Pratt, the artist who worked with David Paulides. These drawings were done by Pratt after talking with witnesses who had seen Bigfoots closeup. Look at how human they are.
Below is a drawing by a man who had a closeup encounter a while back. Note the human-like appearance.
Below is a closeup drawing of the same creature as above.
