I will continue to write about Rick Dyer. This is really the only good Bigfoot story out there, hoax or not. I look around at the rest of the field, and I just cannot see very much going on at all. As long as this is the top story, I will keep on writing about it.
Rick Dyer appears to confirm that the September 2012 video of Hank dead on the ground is real.
At first Frank Cali says there is no video, then Rick says, “Well maybe there is something to it…And it definitely looks like someone has been running his mouth to Mr. Lindsay.”
I thought this video was real because the fellow who saw it has impeccable credentials, and I do not think he would lie even if you pointed a gun to his head.
Video of Hank reappeared on Youtube in Spring 2013. The video briefly reappeared on Youtube 6 months after it first appeared. A man named Paul Guggenbuhl was supposed to see it, but when he got there, the link was already taken down. Paul is a very minor player on the Bigfoot scene as is the fellow I spoke with who saw the video. The video was taken down because Paul was not supposed to see it. To this day, Rick Dyer still thinks Guggenbuhl saw it and is mad at another person for showing it to Paul. However, I can confirm that Paul most certainly did not see that video.
Why show the Hank video to the people who saw it? On 9-7-12, the video was showed with a password to only a few select persons, with a question asking for advice about what Rick should do now, now that he has apparently shot and killed a Bigfoot. Rick did not state he had killed a Bigfoot, but that could be implied if one watched the video.
The people who he showed it to were extremely minor players in the Bigfoot scene. In fact, one had left the community some time prior. Why show it to them if you are hoaxing? Wouldn’t you want to show it to some of the biggest Bigfooters of them all if you were hoaxing? And why post asking for advice about what to do now if you are hoaxing? What an odd request if you are hoaxing.
Existence of Hank video complicates the skeptic theory. The Dyer skeptics now have to come up with an explanation for this video which I now believe exists beyond a reasonable doubt. My source is not lying about the video, so forget that. So what else do we have? Did Rick fake a video of a Bigfoot lying dead on the ground using his stunt man, or is it one of his stunt men? That would seem to be the only explanation.
Dyer has a video of one of the scientists who studied Hank the dead Bigfoot. Rick has apparently filmed an interview with one of the scientists who reputedly studied Hank at the government research center were he was supposedly held. Rick has stated that this man has a fairly well-known name in the scientific community in that he can be Googled and you will turn up material about who he is and what he has done.
Assuming that is really him, skeptics will have a whole lot more explaining to do about how a named scientists was somehow convinced by Dyer to lie about a dead Bigfoot. However, Rick says he is not releasing the video because it would be too destructive to this man’s career at this point. It sure would be nice if this video, assuming it exists, could be released somehow.
New skeptic theory about proof that Dyer is hoaxing. From here.
My cousin works for the BBC as an Editor and has told that the ‘Bigfoot’ shooting in the movie was staged … Dyer created a little video on his cell phone that showed a Bigfoot face near a tree … it was just the head and shoulders with prosthetics and make-up, but apparently it looked good enough to convince the Director to go back to America for a last chance effort to film the mythical creature …
Dyer then staged an actual visit by the creature … a big homeless person he paid to get into some make-up etc … the fake Bigfoot guy did give the Director a pretty harsh bump, really flattened him … he was super pissed off … left the camp immediately … As for the film, lots of people think it ends really strangely. That’s because it’s not the real ending, which will be included in what airs on the BBC.
I was told the film company left the hoax bit in for initial screenings at festivals and for preview showings but when it gets aired on the BBC it will also include the details about Dyer’s obsession and just how far some of the Sasquatch hunters will go … like I said, I thought everyone already knew all this stuff.
The first part about the cellphone appears to be a reference to the Tent Video. However, this cannot be true. Morgan Matthews was present during the shooting of the Tent Video. I know this because you can hear Morgan whispering to Rick during the video. Morgan saw the Bigfoot eating the ribs off the tree and was whispering to Rick in his tent next to him to try to wake Rick up because Rick was sleeping in in the late morning. “Rick! Rick!…” you can hear in the video. My original source at Minnow told me that you can hear Morgan whispering to wake up Rick in the actual video. Some time later, a new video came out with Morgan’s voice whispering for Rick to wake up just as my source has told me.
So the part about the video enticing Morgan to go back to the states one more time cannot possibly be true. Why didn’t Morgan sue Rick was half-killing him with a stunt man? Also this contradicts my original source at Minnow who told me that Rick shot a Bigfoot. Also we had another story like this earlier from someone who had a source at Minnow who confirmed that this was a hoax. This story was traced back to a lie started by Don Boucher.
Bigfoot radio host Philip Smith says he has proof that the Dyer story is a hoax. I just got off of Smith’s radio show. Smith informed me that he has multiple sources at Minnow Films and that these sources have all informed him that the Rick Dyer story is 100% hoax and there was no Bigfoot shot during the filming of the movie. If this is true, it is certainly breathtaking information and it surely implies that we are dealing with a great hoax, possibly one of the greatest hoaxes of all time, here.
The problem is that I had one source at Minnow who now no longer talks to me. And many other people, including my friends, tried to talk to people at Minnow, but no one would talk to them. Seeing as no one at Minnow would ever talk to anyone, how did Mr. Smith manage to get not one, but more than one source at Minnow Films in the UK? This is puzzling. I asked Smith about the Hank video, and Smith said that Rick must have hoaxed that video also.
The problem is that Smith is not a particularly good source. He was co-hosting radio shows with Dyer as of December 2012, by a few months later, he was in with radical Dyer-haters in Team Tazer. In February 2013, Smith said he had a source at Minnow who told him that Hank was being stored at the University of Las Vegas. So Smith has somehow managed to find three different sources at the ever silent Minnow, one of which confirmed the dead Bigfoot and told where it was being held, and two more of which insisted that the whole thing is a hoax.
I am starting to think that Mr. Smith is not a particularly viable witness.
But there are now two different people claiming to have three different Minnow or BBC sources confirming that this is all a big hoax. If they are all telling the truth, then that is excellent evidence in favor of the hoax theory.
Dyer flown back to London for interviews soon after September 6, 2013. After the events of 9-6-12, Morgan quit shooting and Rick was fired from the movie for some reason. However, Minnow did fly him back to London for a round of interviews at Minnow offices. This from my source at Minnow. Also, one of Rick’s friends confirmed that Rick went to London soon after 9-6 because he spoke to Rick on the phone around that time and Rick told him he was on a plane heading back to London.
Now if Rick just killed a Bigfoot, a new round of interviews makes perfect sense. However, if he had just hoaxed Morgan and Morgan knew it, why fly him back to London for a round of interviews about…apparently…his latest hoax? Doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense.
If this is a hoax, why did Rick keep it secret for over three months? Hank was shot and killed on 9-6-12. Rick Dyer did not say a single word about shooting a Bigfoot until I broke the story in the media on 12-12-12, at which time Rick reluctantly confirmed it. If you are pulling off the greatest Bigfoot hoax of all time, why on Earth do you keep it a secret from the whole world for three whole months? Grant you there were some rumors flying around, but Rick was not confirming them. This part doesn’t add up. If you are hoaxing, you blare it to the whole world right away.
