I have been asked to appear on three TV shows. Since November 2012, I have been asked to appear on three TV shows. One was a documentary film out of Canada, the other was History Channel show that I cannot name, and the other was a show about conspiracies. The latter two were out of Hollywood.
All three shows were more or less “documentary” style shows or films along the lines of what you see on the History Channel or the Discovery Channel. They deal with conspiracies or unknown, weird subjects in general. I don’t think I should name any of the shows right now. One show was never approved, and the other one could not travel me down there on the very short notice required.
I am thinking of getting myself an agent! I think I need to go to the hair stylist too. The glasses were replaced long ago, for all the trolls that are so exercised about that. I am an introvert, and I am actually not too wild about being on TV or fame in general. It’s more scary than anything else. Who needs fame? Just give me the women and the money, that’s all I ask.
New information on the ending of Minnow Films’ Shooting Bigfoot. I had previously thought that the movie ends with Rick Dyer shooting the Bigfoot and then the screen just goes blank and you wonder what it is that you just saw. However, a source just informed me that the film will show Dyer shooting the Bigfoot, and then that scene will just end without explanation.
The actual ending of the movie will show Morgan Matthews, the director, on a plane apparently flying back to London. He is holding the camera at his face and filming himself. You can clearly see black and blue bruises all over his face, either from the altercation with Hank, the Bigfoot Rick shot, or from the fist fight with Dyer and possibly others afterwards.
Dyer confirms my story about the three photos of Hank (the Bigfoot Dyer shot) sent to Musky Allen by email. The other day on Rick’s radio show, a caller called in and asked about my description of the three pics that Musky had received. Rick said that my description was 100% correct, and he was surprised at the accuracy of my information. “However he is getting his info, he is right.”
Other sources confirm my story about Hank being held in a government research facility near Las Vegas, Nevada. A source informed me that sources around the Dyer camp where wondering where I got this information that the body is being held in a government research facility near Las Vegas and that a government team has been tasked with studying the body for 4-5 months now.
The source told me they were asking, “How did Lindsay get this information? This was not supposed to get out, was not supposed to be public knowledge. No one on the outside knows about this. Where is Lindsay getting his information?”
Therefore, we can say that now sources inside the Dyer team seem to be confirming the story that it is being held in a government research lab near Vegas and that a government team has been studying the body.
New David Durrett chart on the Rick Dyer story. Here is another fine Durrett chart showing how folks are projecting in the Dyer story. To be honest, a lot of us are projecting in a similar way about the Sierra Kills story, especially the body recovery part. If you are going to do detective work of any sort, you more or less need to project.
One of Dyer’s investors may be Australian billionaire Clive Palmer. On his radio show, Rick said that one of his investors was the guy who was building the Titanic II for 2016 ship. It’s not known if Palmer owns Hank or a part of Hank, but somehow apparently Palmer has wormed his way into some sort of ownership of Hank.
Why won’t Dyer release Hank? Because Hank is not his to release! Apparently Dyer was a contract employee of Minnow Films at the time Hank was shot, and therefore, Dyer cannot release Hank’s body without somehow coordinating it with Minnow. On the other hand though, Hank himself belongs to Rick and his investors. The movie is Minnow’s, and Hank is Dyer and his investors’. Dyer and his investors + Minnow are running the show.
Dyer stole at least $50,000 as a part of his Bigfoot hoax in 2008. Dyer brags that he “made” $650,000 off of his 2008 Bigfoot hoax. Shows you just what kind of a human being he is that he would brag about cleaning up after a case of fraud. Con artists are sociopaths as a good general rule. Hell, most used car salesmen are controlled sociopaths of one sort or another.
Rick’s a con artist. It’s what he does. On the other hand, he also engages in legitimate employment ventures where he doesn’t even rip people off at all. So he’s honest sometimes, and other time’s he’s not. He’s a vicious maniac sometimes going after his enemies, and he’s warm and charming to his friends.
He’s a guiltless thief and con man, but he craves redemption for his “sins” in the 2008 hoax. Although probably more than absolving sin he is looking to clear his name of mud and receive approval and accolades instead of being universally reviled. Anyway, most pure sociopaths don’t care whether you like them or not. It’s the narcissist who seeks approval. Hence, the narcissistic sociopath moniker.
What to make of it? As my mother would say, “Well…people are complicated.”
Anyway, how much of the rest of that $650,000 was stolen money? Steve Kulls has confirmed for me that $50,000 of that at least was simply out and out stolen money. The rest? Who knows! It’s illegal to profit from fraud in the US, but a DA has to file charges, and none ever did. I know who got their $50,000 ripped off (another Bigfoot hoaxer and con artist) and apparently they decided not to press charges. As far as I can tell, Dyer has been stealing money off and on for the last five years or so.
California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) officials may have seized some of Justin Smeja’s Bigfoot samples. A source of mine who works in a museum told me:
“The CDFG seized a lot of Justin’s Bigfoot samples when they came to his house [that day in November 2011]. It’s a good thing he had more stashed around [possibly in multiple freezers within a 25 mile radius of Sacramento, California] or he would really be screwed!”
This is different from the Standard Narrative that states that the CDFG came to Justin’s house, and Justin would not let them in because they did not have a warrant. They said they would go back to get a warrant, and they never came back. The CDFG officers supposedly said:
“We are here to investigate the killing of a Sasquatch in the Sierra Nevadas in October 2010.”
Then another officer said: “Wait! You were not supposed to tell him that…”
I asked my source about the discrepancy, and he said that the Standard Story is a lie, and the true story is what he told me about officers seizing samples.
I must reiterate that we still have no good hard evidence that DFG officers seized Justin’s samples that day – we only have rumors.
Justin Smeja and Derek Randles appear on TV show. Very nice TV show aired around April 1. They recreated the Sierra Kills (not very well I think), and they used actors instead of using Justin and the driver (lame). And they didn’t do the body recovery scene. All in all though, it was a job well done. My hits starting going high after that show (searches for “Bigfoot killed in the Sierra Nevada”), and it was around then that I got two TV offers in one day. I downloaded the show (45 minutes out of a 1.5 hour show), but haven’t uploaded it to my video site yet. Link to the show is here.
Dead Bigfoot, the movie, to be released soon. Ro Sahebi’s documentary will be released soon. It will star Justin Smeja, Shawn of Bigfoot Evidence and Bart Cutino, among others. All of these folks are friends of mine. Ro makes some superb movies (better than many I see on TV), and this should be a nice movie. The movie, in case you didn’t guess, is about the Sierra Kills. It will also show footage of Bart shooting thermal video of several Bigfoots at the Sierra Kills site recently.
New allegation about the Sierra Kills. A source says that Justin and the driver did not shoot those Bigfoots as described. Instead, they were shot at some sort of a feeding setup in a baited trap. They waited for the Bigfoots to come eat and then shot them.
“Smeja and Randles are full of shit on the account of this shooting. Bigfoot don’t throw their hands up and walk towards a guy with a gun. They exit stage left in super human speed. These guys were shot at some feeding setup more than likely from a blind of some sort,” the source said.
The source is regarded as a “fringe” type in the Bigfoot scene, and I don’t believe his theory of how Justin shot his Bigfoots. Justin’s shooting story is accurate.
Video implies that Justin is lying in his Sierra Kills interview with Ro Sahebi. This video, by someone who worked in corporate America for years, says that his investigative skills show that Justin is lying in the video. Justin may well have been lying about a few things, but I think at least the basic story of the Kills itself is true, at least up until the body recovery part, at which point things start to become much more inconclusive.
I do not believe that the person who made this video, Midnight Walker, has proven his case about Justin, and at any rate, he is regarded as a fringe player in the Bigfoot scene by many for various reasons.
My story about Adrian Erickson’s documentary being sold to National Geographic apparently confirmed. This media outlet, River Journal out of Idaho, has now confirmed my rumor that Erickson’s documentary has been sold to National Geographic TV and has added to the rumor by saying that Nat Geo paid a rumored 7 figure sum for the movie. I also reported that Melba Ketchum has been working with Erickson and Nat Geo on this same documentary. It appears that Erickson never sold out to Melba – instead he just sold some rights to her.
And Erickson is now walking away with over $1 million+ (!) for his documentary. This will go a long ways towards paying his bills. A source who works in Hollywood told me that Erickson would never make back the $3 million he spent on his movie, and that instead, he would only maybe get $150,000 because as he told me, “There is no money in TV.” He appears to be wrong. So Erickson has recouped 1/3 of the money he spent on the movie. Erickson seems to be doing a lot better financially these days, and he is off leading hunts again. He has a website set up for leading hunts.
The article also says that the team the Erickson Project filmed was the 9 foot tall male, his partner, Matilda, a 7 foot tall female, and an unknown juvenile. This does not line up with what I had heard before, but it may be true. The previous story was that there was the large male, his female partner, and Matilda, their daughter, who later become pregnant and had a child in the course of the study.
In addition, the article says for the first time that there have been rumors for years that the EP managed to put GPS tracking devices on the Bigfoots at Crittenden. If this is so, then why can’t these Bigfoots be tracked now?
Problems with Ketchum DNA study. Ketchum is not allowing replication of her data from her Bigfoot DNA study. I am not sure what this means, but Bart Cutino says that Melba is not allowing others to replicate her data. That may mean that she is not allowing them to see her samples so they can work on them themselves or possibly she is not releasing all of her data.
In addition, the three genomes that Ketchum claims line up very well have been tested by other scientists who actually found that they did not line up very well at all.
Ketchum accused of ripping off Wally Hersom. Bart Cutino is accusing Melba Ketchum, who recently published her findings on Bigfoot DNA, of more or less ripping off Wally Hersom, the billionaire inventor who was financially backing her study. According to Cutino, Wally’s money was only supposed to go for testing samples and for nothing else. Now whether there was to be a living stipend in there or not has not been confirmed.
However, Melba spent that money on all sorts of things – fancy clothes, fancy meals at restaurants, fancy vacations to Europe, on and on – all on Wally’s dime. Wally’s money apparently was not intended for all of these frivolous expenses. Also, according to Cutino, when Melba was on the phone to Justin one time, she encouraged Justin to ask Wally for $15,000 for something that should not have cost not much of any money at all. Justin would pocket $10,000, and Melba would pocket $5,000.
When Justin asked if this was not stealing, Melba replied, “Oh well, don’t worry. Wally has lots of money.”
Whatever you can say about Justin, he’s not avaricious at all, and he’s not a ripoff or a thief. Justin was appalled and reported this to Bart. According to both of them, Melba was more or less ripping off Wally for a long time. Boy, these holier than thou fundamentalist Christians sure know how to sin it up, don’t they?
Melba’s foundation has been set up as profit making enterprise. Ketchum’s Sasquatch Protection Group has been set up for the expressed purpose of making money and for no other purpose. So much for good intentions.
Ketchum cheered when Richard Stubstad died. I have been wondering for some time now if this woman is a controlled sociopath of some sort, and this just adds fuel to the fire. Richard was one of my best friends, and this doesn’t sit too well with me. Oh well, no matter. US capitalism churns out controlled sociopaths like an assembly line at a factory.
My beef with Ketchum. The main thing I have against this woman is that she has done more than any other person to bring greed into this Bigfoot business. Not that it hasn’t always been there, but she took it to a whole new level. Money’s the root of all evil, and greed is screwing up this business the same way it ruins everything else. Sure, Greed is her middle name but still.
David Paulides’ shenanigans with the Smith River submitter in Del Norte County, California. The Smith River submitter, possibly Kirk Stewart, has a positive Bigfoot sample into Ketchum’s DNA study. This is the fellow who was making the news when an apparent Bigfoot was stealing pheasants from his chicken coop and eating his watermelons.
Paulides, one of the nastiest and least liked fellows in Bigfootery, got involved with this fellow and sleazed out in classic sleazy Paulides fashion. Paulides and the submitter had a big falling when the submitter figured out that Paulides was trying to steal all the guy’s samples. Classic Paulides move.
Paulides’ background. Everyone I talk to about Paulides has nothing good to say about him. Even the folks who won’t bash him to his face are afraid of him. A source with Paulides’ group NABS told me that Paulides’ temper is legendary and that the other group members all lived in fear of his raging temper. Obviously someone like this was meant by God to be Ketchum’s great and good friend. A perfect match, one piece of work with another, that could only be made in Heaven.
Paulides was a police officer on a Bay Area police force, possibly the Palo Alto Police Department. He was fired for engaging in fraud by using city government stationary to solicit money for some charity that he was running. For this reason, he was forced to resign as a police officer.
He had previously embroiled himself in a police brutality scandal. What happened was that Paulides, a detective, was badly beaten up by a suspect. As revenge, Paulides got a bunch of his plainclothes buddies to go out on a mission to find the guy who beat up Paulides (the suspect was out of jail by now) and deliver some paybacks.
The man who beat up Paulides was badly beaten up by Paulides’ detective friends as payback. Word got out about it, and it was a great big mess with newspaper write-ups and the whole nine yards. I sympathize with Paulides for getting beaten up by a criminal and for wanting revenge, but after all, this is a society that operates on the rule of law.
Old video of Iowa Bigfoot seems to be a hoax. A family in Iowa, a mother, father and kids, films a Bigfoot in Iowa. Some breakdowns have apparently confirmed this as a hoax. Here is a photo from the video below.
Shout out to Bigfoot Buzz. Chuck Prahl’s Bigfoot Buzz site is one of the best Bigfoot sites out there. He updates it all the time, and it’s amazing how many stories he keeps up on. He has an excellent tone and doesn’t condescend to mud-slinging and smack talking like everyone else does. He stays out of most of the Bigfoot wars and doesn’t take sides too often, which is the only smart thing to do in this biz. It’s just good journalism – get the story out and only the story, and screw the rest.
It takes a somewhat credulous tone, which is proper for the subject. I get tired of these “everything is a hoax” folks. On the other hand, he readily calls out hoaxes when he sees them.
Chuck has long had a fine Bigfoot radio show out of the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland, and he is a fine radio announcer.
Interview with me on Mind Cemetery radio. Not sure how many of you Bigfoot News readers saw this, but I recently did an interview with a Net radio station called Mind Cemetery that was also broadcasted on a dial radio station out of New Orleans. This is the first time I have ever been on dial radio.
The interview lasts 2 hours, and the sound quality is bad at times. I am told I have a good voice though. Well, women like it at least. I am an introvert, and I am always afraid to listen to my interviews. The links sit there for ages on my desk while I send my friends around to listen to them. Then I ask them how I sounded. They keep telling me I sound great. Finally I get up the nerve to listen to the interview.
Three Bigfoot Forums posters with samples in to Dr. Melba Ketchum’s study. The three posters are Sasfooty, Indiefoot and Southernyahoo. Sasfooty at least has some odd stories. I believe this woman claims that Bigfoots come into her yard and stand there and smoke cigarettes while staring at her house! No way! Anyway, go to Melba’s Sasquatch Genome Project page and run through the list of submitters, and see if you can figure out who they are. I don’t like any of the three, but I hardly like anyone of BFF.
BFF scumbags link me to known Bigfoot kook and release my IP address to other BFF members. On a BFF post, a member stated that Jon-Erik Beckjord and I had been identified as such persistent trolls that our IP addresses were released to other BFF members as some sort of security measure. Beckjord was a notorious Bigfoot kook and disruptor who made enemies of everyone and had the most insane theories about Bigfoot. He was widely hated. I think he died recently.
Just shows you what scumbags these BFF guys are. All BFF threads about and links to me are deleted at BFF. These idiots are the biggest losers in the business. I have no idea where all of this insane spite comes from, but it sure is weird. Any ideas?
Why I use the word “sources.” I am actually a trained journalist. I have a BA degree in Journalism from J-school, and I used to work as an editor of a magazine. We use words like that all the time. Anyway, investigative reporters don’t like to identify folks who have not gone public.
