Updated February 25: Sexually-Motivated Double Homicide in Delphi, Indiana, February 13, 2017: Liberty German and Abbie Williams

Sexually-motivated double homicide of two teenage girls, one 13 and the other 14. For some background on this heartbreaking case, see here.

I like to do “sleuthing” in my part time. Although it’s gruesome, playing detective is a bit of a hobby of mine, and it is engrossing in some odd say.

This is an update of the case as of February 25, 2017.

How Do I Know All This Stuff?

First: How do I know all this stuff?

I sometimes  get involved in websleuthing. I don’t do it all the time, but I’ve been doing this for years. I have also worked in real life with detectives attempting to solve an attempted homicide of a policeman in New Jersey in the 1960’s or 1970’s. I worked with detectives from California and New Jersey on that case. I had a good POI and they were very interested in this case. I was very impressed with all three detectives in the case.

I am very interested in this sort of thing and I have researched heavily a few cases. I have never caught anyone yet though. I wish I had. I am particularly interested in serial killings involving rape of women and molestation of girls. Basically rapist-murderers or child killers. Almost all such cases are sexually molested. Repeat child killers are almost always sexually motivated. We are dealing with a sadistic pedophile here. In the case of women, we are almost always dealing with a sexual sadist. In almost all such cases, we are dealing with sociopaths or psychopaths, probably the latter. I’m not really interested in sleuthing out any other sort of cases, sorry.

I have studied serial killers for many years and I know a lot about them. My counseling practice deals almost exclusively with OCD work deals a lot with people who are consumed by thoughts of child molesting, violence against others or homicide. However, in almost all such cases, these people are completely harmless. It’s hard to explain but if you research the illness, you will understand. Anyway, I have to do differential diagnosis to determine pedophilia vs. no pedophilia and dangerous person versus non-dangerous person.

Rarely, I have had clients who were sociopaths or pedophiles, and I did work a bit with them. The differential diagnosis of OCD versus pedophilia and OCD versus sociopathy/psychopathy is straightforward. As part of this work, I had to do a lot of research on violent people, especially murderers and particularly serial killers. I have also done a lot of research into psychopathy and sexual sadism. I have also had to do a lot of research into pedophilia which even including studying the pedophile and hebephile websites where these people post in order to determine how they think.

This sites are on the Open Internet and really there is no real child pornography on these sites. In terms of images, it is mostly gray area stuff like clothed posed models and cartoon child pornography. Also both of these types of images are disturbing, at least to me, they are generally legal. Two men have been convicted of mass distribution of clothed child models, but that case was extremely controversial because clothed posed models were not known to be illegal at the time and the state had to make a new case that this material was illegal.

Many of the now grown girl models have come to these men’s defense. Both men had researched the law carefully and felt they were operating within the law as clothed posed models were legal at the time. They were legal at the time. They were legal until the decided that they were illegal, which is messed up. You can’t break a law that you don’t know exists. Vague laws are unconstitutional. Laws must be written so it is pretty clear to people what is legal and what is illegal. Therefore, citizens who wish to obey the law can know what the limits of the law are. If we don’t know what’s legal and what’s illegal, how can we operate in society. If everything is legal until the state arbitrarily and without passing a law decides something is illegal, this is not democratic, and you’re not living in a free country. That is totalitarianism.

Cartoon child pornography is gray area legal, although I admit it is disturbing to look at. The only cases tried so far are for the artists who draw this material. Obviously, all of these artists are pedophiles. However, some are married with highly supportive wives. There have been a number of attempts to try men for drawing cartoon child pornography, but almost all have been stricken down by courts who have decided that this material is constitutionally protected by the First Amendment freedom of expression. I believe in one case, a artist was convicted for drawing this material. However, this case has been quite controversial. A big market with this material has sprung up in Japan. I believe it is called Loli or Manga.

It is a mistake to think that everyone on those boards is a pedophile or hebephile. Pedophile boards often consist of about 1/2 pedophiles and 1/2 pedophile-haters who abuse and threaten the pedophiles. So at least half of the people on those boards are not even pedophiles. They are the opposite.

As a result, I understand these people pretty well.

I have done a lot of research on this case including released information, rumors and  borderline areas such as cryptic statements by LE. I have also spoken to people close to the case, including those close to the search party and law enforcement investigation of this case. I also spoken to other sleuthers and people interested in the case. Some were associated with missing persons groups. I also have pretty good sleuthing skills involving research. This includes digging through background information databases online and other sorts of web research.

This is the source of some of my material.

I also worked a bit with Indiana State Police and the FBI, sharing my POI’s with them. However, they did not reveal much information to me other than some cleared suspects. Other information is derived from my own theorizing about the case. This includes offender profiling, which in my case tends to be based on actual POI(s). And I believe I have some mild psi skills.

So there’s the source of all of the information.

My Musings on This Case

The girls were obviously tied up, I believe with a rope. But it is not proven that rope was used. There is a rumor that LE retained some rope with DNA. There is no evidence at the moment that this is true, but it is possible.

Initial reports said the girls were found in a cabin or shack. Rumors came from family members and were the first reports about the case. These are false rumors. The girls were found in open forest.

I believe that Libby was killed on 2-13, possibly pretty quickly, and Abby died or 2-14. The published obits state those dates. There is a rumor that the families chose those dates as death dates, but that would apply only to funerals, not obits. Obit info would come straight from coroner report. Therefore, the coroner report had to state different death dates. There is a rumor that Abbie survived the initial attack but died later on of hypothermia and that her body was still warm when found. This rumor appears to be correct, and along with the different dates on the obits, adds weight to the theory that they died on different days.

When the search was going on, both phones were dead.

This was not a crime of opportunity. He planned this very well. He plans his crimes with the utmost meticulousness. That is why he is armed with the gun and disguising himself.

I have reason to believe that these girls were catfished, possibly via Libby’s Instagram page, although this is not proven yet. That is, the girls thought they were going there to meet a teenage boy, but instead they met the girl. The killer would have pretended to be a teenage boy in  order to lure the girls. There is no hard evidence for this, but there is some suggestive evidence via cryptic LE statements and friends of Libby’s speaking about activity on her Instagram account.

In my opinion, Unsub is approximately 5’8-5’10, ~160 pounds with a bit of a middle aged man’s stomach paunch.

Clearly he Unsub has a pistol, .45 or 911. The pistol was holstered to his right side, which means he is lefthanded. The outline of the pistol can clearly be seen in the photo released of the man. A photo exists showing the pistol outlined with graphic software. Assuming that is a pistol, and it is, then Unsub is lefthanded. Well, he is either lefthanded or pretending to be lefthanded. Pretending to be lefthanded makes no sense in a case like this as it would be hard to draw with his right and clumsy with his left, resulting in possible dropping or fumbling with the weapon. Therefore, Unsub is lefthanded.

In the drawing of Unsub based on his photo, he is looking downwards. He is doing this to disguise himself, but I think this is how he looks most of the time. He tends to look downward instead of looking people straight in the eye. This could give the impression of “looking down at others.” This is probably intentional as I feel that Unsub does indeed “look down on others.” He thinks very highly of himself, is narcissistic and thinks he is better than others. He also thinks he can outsmart police, and I believe he has been doing just that for the last four years when he has been getting away with murder.

Unsub is clearly trying to disguise himself in the photos. He is using a hat and a scarf in front of his face to do this. As stated by LE. The hat is a camouflage hunting cap with padded ear muffs.

He is wearing a hat, a jacket and blue jeans in the photo. Unsub is overdressed for the weather, but February in Indiana is pretty cold. He seems to have layers of clothing on. He has almost his entire body covered with clothing. Part of this is to disguise himself but another reason is so he will have few exposed areas of his body if the girls fight back hard. The layers of clothing will prevent them from leaving scratch marks on his body, although they still could have scratched up his face. He also has a fanny pack. This is probably where he kept his murder kit.

Talk of backpacks and duffel bags makes no sense to me. I do not believe that Unsub had a backpack or a duffel bag, but perhaps he did. At any rate, there was a man dressed in all black seen at the time also. This man definitely had a backpack. I believe that this man participated in the murders with Unsub. In other words, there were two killers.

There is a rumor that Abbie was barely alive when found and died on the way to the hospital. Rumor came straight from family members. This is probably a false rumor, but it is somewhat close to the truth. Another rumor says she was dead, but the body was still warm. This rumor is much better and appears to be closer to the truth. If the body was warm, this means that Abbie died of hypothermia no earlier than 9:30 AM, as the bodies were discovered at 12:30 PM, and bodies only stay warm for 2-3 hours after death. This means that Abbie was probably still alive when the search started at 9:30 AM.

The bodies were moved in the course of this crime. We know this for a fact because the search parties covered the same ground in both searches. The locale where they were found on 2-14 had previously been searched on 2-13. Sources in the search party state that the girls had to have been moved, taken away and then returned to be dumped.

The 2-13 search began at 5:30 PM and by that time, the girls had been moved out of the area. The attack began at 2:15 PM, so the girls were moved out of the area sometime between 2:30-5:30 PM. Unsub put the girls in his vehicle and transported them somewhere where he assaulted them either in his vehicle or at a residence. It is uncertain whether he took them to his residence. I believe one set of girls was taken to his residence where they were raped and killed, but the other pair was not. Perhaps he lives closer to one of the crime scenes than to the other one.

Unsub was certainly not in the area from 5:30 PM on 2-13-12:30 AM on 2-14 and from 9:30 AM-12:30 PM on 2-14. Therefore the girls were returned to the site on 2-14 between 12:30 PM-9:30 AM on the morning of 2-14.

Unsub probably parked his vehicle on the road next to the cemetery. Police vehicles were seen in the area, but they were not searching the cemetery. Instead there was a long line of them parked on the road next to the cemetery. Therefore, Unsub may have parked his vehicle on the road next to the cemetery.

In published UK media, grandfather who raised her made an odd statement, “I know Libby. She put up one Hell of a fight.” The grandfather has been cleared. However, he is correct that Libby put up a strong battle. The reason that the grandfather said she put up a wild fight is probably because that is what it says in the medical report. If she fought hard, there will be talk of defensive wounds and maybe DNA under her nails. The condition of her body at the funeral adds weight to the notion that she fought back very hard and sustained many  defensive wounds. In that case, Unsub may have scratch marks.

I do not believe that LE has any particular POI at this moment. They are far away from solving this case.

The first thing they did was to go around questioning people who were being talked about as possible suspects. They have already cleared a number of people this way. They are also going around to all of the local RSO’s and questioning them. They wanted them to come talk about the case. While there, they searched their phones and asked them to submit DNA. They are clearing at least some of the RSO’s this way.

The raid was on the property of the Jim Maxwell who lives on Bicycle Road. He is completely innocent and cleared. This poor guy had nothing to do with it.

I believe the gun obviously holstered on the right under the jacket of Unsub was used to control the girls. He also got them to keep quiet, maybe with the gun. However, I believe the gun was used to kill the girls. It would have made too much noise. Rumors that this was not a gun crime are correct.

Early rumors stated that both girls had their throats slit. This rumor appears to be correct. I believe that the crime scene was a bloody and ugly mess, a real horrorshow. Funerals were open casket, and witnesses stated that both girls had scarves covering their necks, more to cover something up than as clothing. This adds weight to the theory that their throats were slit. Libby also had small wounds in many places on her body, and her face had been somewhat injured. This is because she fought back against him very hard.

This is obviously a sexually motivated offense. Initial reports said both girls were raped. There is no evidence that this is true, but in my opinion, Abbie was definitely raped. Whether Libby got raped is not known, and there are problems with the theory. There is a rumor that Abbie was found nude and Libby was found fully clothed. This rumor is probably correct. It is difficult to reconcile Libby being raped with her being found fully clothed. One theory is that he kept Abbie alive overnight to use her. This theory is correct. There is no evidence of physical torture in this case.

I believe both girls were heterosexual. I believe were quite sexually inexperienced, that is, they had little to no sexual experience. At least one of them was probably a virgin, and the other one was also or perhaps barely post-virginity. However, as both had passed sexarche, they were interested in boys and were full sexual human beings with all of the feelings and desires that go along with that. This is why it makes sense that they were there to meet a boy their age. These girls were not completely innocent little girl-children like elementary school girls. They were worldly teenage girls. Even young teenage girls grow up very fast nowadays with porn and early sexualization, and people need to get used to teenage minors as being sexual beings with free and full legal sexual agency among peers.

Jim Logan, the property owner where the girls were found, was in Lafayette, Indiana on 2-13, and Unsub may have known he would not be there. How he knew this, I have no idea.

Unsub Portrait for the Delphi-Evansdale Serial Killer

Unsub is aged 50-60 based on his photos, voice and other things. Roundabout let’s call it ~55.

Unsub has white hair and is balding. In the past, he had stringy long blond hair. He had a goatee and mustache in recent years, but lately he has shaved most of it off except for a mustache and bit of a goatee.

Unsub has altered his appearance since the Evansdale murders. In the past he had rather long stringy blond hair, a mustache and a goatee. He has altered his appearance  since the Evansdale killings by shaving off the beard. I do not know if he altered his appearance after the Delphi killings.

In the past, Unsub was often smiling and seemed happy go lucky. He looked harmless enough. He was molesting children, but he was not violent yet, so his face remained open and friendly.

In recent years, Unsub’s face has gotten angrier. He has been slowly developing an air of menace and threat in recent years. This is because he has been transforming from a nonviolent pedophile into a violent pedophile. While in the past his fantasies were about noncoerced sex with children, they have now turned much more violent, and now he mostly fantasizes about rape and murder of girls age 8-14. Why he changed from a nonviolent to a violent pedophile is not known.

Unsub has been paunchy for most of his adult life from age 40 on. For part of the past few decades, he became quite heavy. His excess weight mostly went to his width, so now he looked something like a football lineman. At other times during this period, he lost quite a bit of weight. He has retained somewhat of a paunch since at least age 40. From 2012-present, he has remained with this thinner frame, but he retains a paunch to this day. The paunch can be easily seen in the photo of Unsub on the bridge.

Unsub, in addition to being a pedophile, is also sexual sadist. How he worked his sexual sadism into his noncoerced activity in the past is not known. He has been a sexual sadist since no later than age 14, but he has probably been repressing the sexual sadism for most of his life in order to have noncoerced sex. At some point in at least the last five years, this control has broken down, and now his sexual sadism is no longer repressed. This has coincided with an increasingly menacing look to him.

Unsub is not a happy serial killer. Instead he is a tormented one. Since the Evansdale murders, he has grown much darker. He has also aged prematurely and looks much older than he did even a few years ago. His smile is gone and has been replaced by a look of sadness and especially rage. Now he looks downright mean. His friends have reacted to this by telling him he has aged. Others say things like, “Cheer up! Smile!” Somehow this double homicide aged him and made him much sadder and angrier. This means that the Evansdale killings significantly stressed him out. Even though these crimes stress him out, he continues to commit them. That is because he is driven in some way to commit these crimes. It is now a sort of addiction. He is addicted to rape and murder.

Unsub has few hobbies other than pedophilia. I believe he likes to hang out in local places like taverns, coffee shops, pool halls, etc. Here he likes to relax with friends and shoot the bull.

Unsub’s writing appears somewhat uneducated. He makes some spelling and possibly punctuation errors. However, in his rural Iowa-Indiana area, he is about as educated as most people he knows, as most of them write about as poorly as he does.

Unsub’s employment is hard to ascertain. I believe he works with his hands in some sort of a working class occupation. Perhaps he repairs objects in some way. He is quite good mechanically.

His IQ is not particularly high. It is probably ~105-110, but he acts less intelligent than that. This can be seen in his poor writing style.

Unsub graduated from high school. He has at least some college education. He may have even graduated from college, or perhaps he went for a while and then quit. Unsub is not good at completing scholarly tasks. He starts them and then quits, or takes a long time to fulfill his educational goals. For instance, he is the type of man who might take 10-15 years to complete a four year college degree if he completed one at all. He has a hard time sticking to tasks and has a tendency to drag things out. Why he does this is not known.

I believe Unsub is quite religious. He is a born-again fundamentalist Protestant Christian like so many in the surrounding area. He may have even gone to a religious college. He is very active in his local church, where he is regarded as a great man. He has a number of friends through this church. How he reconciles his strong religious faith with raping and murdering little girls is hard to figure.

Unsub is or was an attractive man. He had a sexy appearance in a sort of bad boy, devilish way. He appeared masculine and is handsome in sort of a tough guy way. Women in the local area were attracted to him due to his good looks. Even after age 50, he continued to attract attractive, sexy women all the way down to age 30. A number of the local younger women used to think he is “hot” or “cute.”

This has gone to his head somewhat, and he thinks of himself as a ladies man. He may be a nonpreferential pedophile. That means he is also attracted to adult females, and he may enjoy having sex with them regularly. Not all pedophiles are exclusive. Nevertheless, his sexual preference is for girls age 2-14. His attraction to adult females is lower than to little girls, but still be adequate for adult heterosexual functioning.

Unsub is a fixated pedophile and has been so since age 14 at the latest. His pedophilia is one of the major themes of his life. I do not believe he has been controlling his pedophilia, and I think he has been molesting girls for quite some time. He may have gotten quite good at it. I believe that many people do not realize that he is a pedophile. He is still close to some members of his family and their friends. They probably do not suspect him of being a pedophile.

Unsub is absolutely a pedophile, a heterosexual pedophile. I believe he likes little girls from age 2-12, mostly around age 6-10. However, 13 and 14 year old girls are not too far out of his AOA. Many pedophiles are also hebephilic, and it’s common for pedophilic AOA’s to include girls age 13-15 because these girls still have enough of a childlike quality to attract the pedophile. By age 16, most girls are simply too grown up for almost all pedophiles. On pedophile forums, when people try to post 16-18 year old girls, this causes much uproar and cries of, “Oh gross! No grandmas! Ew! No old ladies! Take that down, it’s disgusting!” I find this rather humorous. It’s hard to imagine grown men calling a 16 year old girl a “grandma” due to her “old age” making her look like a grandmother.

Unsub is married and has children. However, the marriage has ended, and he is now divorced. Relations with the ex-wife are not good. This is because his wife suspects him of being a pedophile and has a low opinion of him. She has tried to turn him in to LE, but that hasn’t gone anywhere. She accuses him of being a pedophile. She even accuses him of molesting specific girls, but that hasn’t gone anywhere either. If asked about this, Unsub probably says she is making this up as a bitter ex-wife. I believe his children may also suspect Unsub of being a pedophile. Nevertheless they continue to visit him in joint custody. I do not believe he has molested or currently molests his own children. The kids would tell their mother about it and the visitation rights would be revoked.

He has at least two children with whom he shares joint custody with his wife. I am unsure of how good his relationship is with his children. The children are minors. I am unsure of their age and gender.

He has used his residence at least once in this pair of murders to have sex with young girls. Whether he has had sex there with little girls at other times is not known.

If the Evansdale killer also did the Delphi killings, he traveled some distance for at least one and maybe both of these crimes. The killer lives in either Evansdale, Delphi or somewhere in between. I believe he lives somewhere in between. If we place Unsub’s residence is halfway in between Delphi and Evansdale, he traveled 150 -200 miles to commit these murders. That is about a 3-hour drive. He drove anywhere from 1-350 miles to commit these murders, which an emphasis towards the longer numbers. The rides to commit the murders were took anywhere from 10 minutes to 5.5 hours. He has no problem driving 5-6 hours to commit a double homicide and then returning home.

I believe that Unsub took one of these pairs of girls to his residence. It was there that he raped and tortured them. He may have papered over the windows and even soundproofed his residence in order to do this. Afterwards he cleaned his place up as thoroughly as he could.

Unsub does not have a lot of money. At age ~55, he still lives in a cheap apartment or a trailer or motor home. He may live in a trailer park. He is not homeless, but he does not have a lot of money either. The reasons for his relative poverty are not known. is residence has the appearance of a sparsely or poorly furnished bachelor residence. The walls are painted white with a white carpet. It is not even well-lit inside. The residence has a dim look about it, even in daytime. Now that he is divorced, he lives alone. He has little girls over at his residence from time to time, and he even has photographs of little girls playing or making faces in his  residence. I do not know if he collects child pornography, but he has a significant collection of photos of cute little girls obtained in a variety of places. He has some photos of himself with a little girl or two next to him.

Despite his low income, Unsub continues to drive a fairly nice car, or at least he had one around the time of the Evansdale killings. At that time he was driving a new-looking car. This car may have been a compact. It may have been painted red. I believe he also has an SUV that he uses to do his crime. In the Evansdale killings, there was talk of a white van in the area where the girls disappeared. It was never proven to have any connection with the murders. Some people say they see a white vehicle in the photo of Abbie on the railroad bridge. I have never been able to see this vehicle in that photo no matter how many times I looked.

He’s going to lay low for a while. He won’t do any similar crimes in the near future. He’s not that stupid. Unsub seems to take these murders rather hard. They take their toll on him. He has not been sitting pretty since the Delphi murders. Instead he is highly stressed out. He is quite worried about getting caught now that they have a photo of him, a recording of his voice and a possible record of his DNA. He got away with the Evansdale killings easily, but this time he screwed up.

Despite the fact that Unsub is stressing out badly over this latest crime, he still has not left the area. He stayed in the area after the Evansdale murders and he won’t leave after these killings either.

I am not sure whether he has marks on his face or not from Libby’s fighting back. It’s possible. If so, people need to keep an eye out for a man who suddenly developed scratches on his face since the Delphi murders.

I believe Unsub was involved in the Evansdale, Iowa double homicide of two girls aged 8-10. They also disappeared in the woods in a park named after five bridges, which are all in the park. There may be railroad bridges there also. They were also found by a stream as in this case. They were dumped in another regional park 20 miles away.  The bodies were discovered in very poor condition near a stream. The bodies were in such poor condition that there was no way to determine whether the girls had been sexually abused. Neither was it possible to determine mode of killing.

However, if the MO in Delphi was throat-slitting, perhaps it was in Evansdale also. As at least one of the Delphi girls was raped, the Evansdale girls were probably sexually abused too. As Unsub is a pedophile, it makes little sense for him to abduct girls only to murder them. His primary motivation in these crimes is sexual and sexual assault is surely a necessary factor in his attacks. He is also motivated by homicidal tendencies. I believe he kills the girls for a sadistic thrill rather than to get rid of witnesses. Part of the whole reason for abducting the girls is to kill them.

Here are the commonalities between the two cases:

  • Bridges, especially railroad bridges.
  • Bodies of water, especially streams.
  • Small regional parks with the above in them.
  • Young girls aged 8-14.
  • Pairs of girls.
  • Attacks occur on the 13th of the month, perhaps because 13 is an unlucky number. So it’s the “unlucky day” for the girls who his victims. He thinks this is funny as he has a sick sense of humor.
  • Same general region of Iowa and Indiana, about 350 miles east to west.
  • Body dumps near streams
  • Probable rape or sexual abuse in both case. Present at Delphi, probable at Evanston.

Dead Body Found in Stone Lake, La Grange County, Indiana, February 20, 2017

MSM backstory.

Lake is in far northern Indiana next to the Michigan border. Very much flyover country, somewhat rural, mixed farms, small towns and some industry such as meatpacking, working class, White, redneck, etc. Floater found in lake by kayakers. This is the only information that was given out by LE or MSM. LE stated that “the investigation is very active and ongoing.”

From witness statements: Adult male. Found dead floating in the lake chained to a cinderblock.

Obviously a homicide.

Not killed by Delphi Double Homicide Killer. Wrong age and sex.

I have a lot of thoughts about how this crime came about though.

Not killed by drowning. Body dump.

Killer was not a woman. Killer was a strong young man who lives a somewhat marginal life. Victim may also have lived marginally.

Looks like a mob hit, but I am not sure the mob exists on anymore, kills people like that or is active in Indiana. Not a gang killing. Gangs don’t bother to do body dumps. They just do drivebys and leave the bodies where they fall. More likely a drug deal gone sour or something such. Possibly a love triangle. Maybe the victim got involved with killer’s girl. This was a crime of hatred. The victim did something to really make the killer very mad, stark raving homicidally furious. He was killed as “paybacks.” A message was sent by this killing to the victim (though he is dead) and especially to his or the killers’ associates or anyone paying attention. The killer is saying, “Don’t mess with me. You mess with me and you die. Watch your step, dammit.”

Body possibly dumped by more than one man.

Killer is reasonably intelligent, probably a younger White man, under age 40.

He is macho, tough and redneck. He works at some sort of working class job, possibly involving physical labor. He is probably a “bad boy” type. He may work at a regular job where he sees the public every day. In his milieu, no one thinks much of such crimes, and people often think the victim asked for it.

Double Homicide in Delphi, Indiana, February 13, 2017: Liberty German and Abbie Williams

Sexually-motivated double homicide of two teenage girls, one 13 and the other 14. For some background on this heartbreaking case, see here.

I like to do “sleuthing” in my part time. Although it’s gruesome, playing detective is a bit of a hobby of mine, and it is engrossing in some odd say. I believe I am also somewhat psychic – not highly psychic but  instead somewhat psychic like many people. I get visions and powerful somantic visions/sensations like  getting punched in the face, being knocked over, having laser beams shot at me, cold chills, eyes boring into my skull, my stomach sinking to my feet, etc.

The psi is stuff is variable. It’s often wrong, but it’s also right sometimes. I organize my life by this psi stuff. I am also very good at reading people to where I can almost read minds if someone is near  me and interacting with me. I can’t tell what you are thinking, but I can at times tell what message you are trying to convey to me nonverbally. This sensation is not telepathic but instead semi-telepathic. It is hard to explain. I can figure people out pretty well and I can usually get good reads on someone.

I also engage in a lot of feminine intuitive thinking and “Gestalt” thinking. Gestalt is hard to explain, but holistic is a good way to look at it. It means the sum is greater than the whole of its parts. It means “I know it when I see it, but I cannot explain how.” It means getting the “sense” or “smell” or “feel” about something. It is a way of “putting it all together” and “connecting the dots,” and “seeing the forest and missing the trees instead of the other way around.”

I think this way because while I have a very strong masculine side to my brain, I also have a big feminine side too, and in many ways, I think like women and understand how they think. This is fun, and it enables me to get along with them well. In fact, I would much rather be around women then  men. Women’s intuition is a true genius particular to the female brain. Do not under-emphasize it. Women are just as smart as men, but men are more logical, so we think they are stupid. However, women also think men are stupid. We think the opposite sex is stupid because they think in different ways than we do, but this is an illusion.

I would like to throw a lot of stuff out there.

My Musings on This Case

The girls were obviously tied up, I believe with a rope. There is a rumor that LE retained some rope with DNA. There is no evidence at the moment that this is true, but it is possible.

Initial reports said the girls were found in a cabin or shack. Rumors came from family members and were the first reports about the case. These are false rumors. The girls were found in open forest.

I believe that Libby was killed on 2-13, possibly pretty quickly, and Abby died or 2-14. The published obits state those dates. There is a rumor that the families chose those dates as death dates, but that would apply only to funerals, not obits. Obit info would come straight from coroner report. Therefore, the coroner report had to state different death dates. There is a rumor that Abbie survived the initial attack but died later on of hypothermia and that her body was still warm when found. This rumor appears to be correct, and along with the different dates on the obits, adds weight to the theory that they died on different days.

When the search was going on, both phones were dead.

This was probably not a crime of opportunity. He probably planned this very well. He plans his crimes with the utmost meticulousness. That is why he is armed with the gun and disguising himself.

Unsub is clearly trying to disguise himself in the photos. He is using a hat and a scarf in front of his face to do this. As stated by LE.

Talk of backpacks and duffel bags makes no sense to me. I do not believe that Unsub had a backpack or a duffel bag, but perhaps he did. At any rate, there was a man dressed in all black seen at the time also. This man definitely had a backpack. I believe that this man participated in the murders with Unsub. In other words, there were two killers.

There is a rumor that Abbie was barely alive when found and died on the way to the hospital. Rumor came straight from family members. This is probably a false rumor, but it is somewhat close to the truth. Another rumor says she was dead, but the body was still warm. This rumor is much better and appears to be closer to the truth.

In published UK media, grandfather who raised her made an odd statement, “I know Libby. She put up one Hell of a fight.” The grandfather has been cleared. However, he is correct that Libby put up a strong battle. The reason that the grandfather said she put up a wild fight is probably because that is what it says in the medical report. If she fought hard, there will be talk of defensive wounds and maybe DNA under her nails. In that case, Unsub may have scratch marks.

I do not believe that LE has any particular POI at this moment. They are far away from solving this case.

The first thing they did was to go around questioning people who were being talked about as possible suspects. They have already cleared a number of people this way. They are also going around to all of the local RSO’s and questioning them. They wanted them to come talk about the case. While there, they searched their phones and asked them to submit DNA. They are clearing at least some of the RSO’s this way.

The raid was on the property of the Jim Maxwell who lives on Bicycle Road. He is completely innocent and cleared. This poor guy had nothing to do with it.

I believe the gun obviously holstered on the right under the jacket of Unsub was used to control the girls. He also got them to keep quiet, maybe with the gun. However, I believe the gun was used to kill the girls. It would have made too much noise. Rumors that this was not a gun crime are correct.

Early rumors stated that both girls had their throats slit. This rumor appears to be correct. I believe that the crime scene was a bloody and ugly mess, a real horrorshow. Funerals were open casket, and witnesses stated that both girls had scarves covering their necks, more to cover something up than as clothing. This adds weight to the theory that their throats were slit. Libby also had small wounds in many places on her body, and her face had been somewhat injured. This is because she fought back against him very hard.

This is obviously a sexually motivated offense. Initial reports said both girls were raped. There is no evidence that this is true, but in my opinion, Abbie was definitely raped. Whether Libby got raped is not known, and there are problems with the theory. One theory is that he kept Abbie alive overnight to use her. This theory is correct. There is no evidence of physical torture in this case.

As a libertine, I do not care if girls this age are sexually active. That means nothing to me. I believe both girls were heterosexual. Both were sexually inexperienced. However, as both had passed sexarche, they were both interested in boys and were full sexual human beings with all of the feelings and desires that go along with that.

However, I believe that Liberty may have been sexually active but inexperienced. Perhaps she had only had sex one time. Boyfriend may have been a bad boy, a tough guy, a macho guy. He may have been a young adult ~ 20 years old. Although this is statutory rape, I think this sort of thing is quite common around  there. I believe that Abbie was very sexually inexperienced with boys, and she was still a virgin.

These girls were not completely innocent little girl-children like elementary school girls. They were worldly teenage girls. Even young teenage girls grow up very fast nowadays with porn and early sexualization, and people need to get used to teenagers as sexual beings with free agency.

Unsub is aged 50-60 based on his photos, voice and other things. Roundabout let’s cal

I believe Unsub was involved in the Evansdale double homicide of two girls aged 8-10. They also disappeared in the woods in a park named after five bridges which are all in the park. There may be railroad bridges there also. They were also found by a stream as in this case. He body dumps near streams.

Jim Logan was in Lafayette on 2-13, and Unsub may have known he would not be there. How he knew this, I have no idea.

He’s going to lay low for a while. He won’t do any similar crimes in the near future. He’s not that stupid.

How Trump Stole the Election by Rigging Voting Machines

This story will have several parts. First of all, I know more about this than 99% of the people out there who are all screaming “conspiracy theory,” so maybe they should go do some research.

Recounts were done in 3 states.

26,000 fake votes for Trump were found in Pennsylvania.

5,000 fake votes for Trump were found in Wisconsin. They were due to “accidents.”

2,000 fake votes for Trump were found in Michigan.

The media never reported any of this. The media lied and said the recounts changed nothing and only added a few Trump votes. They were completely wrong about the recounts, and all the MSM-CIA Deep State news outlets lied and said the same thing.

Also recounts were never even done anyway!

In the most Democratic-heavy areas of Wisconsin, the votes were “recounted” by simply running them through the same machines that probably miscounted them in the first place! But even when they re-ran them through the machines, Stein people were counting the ballots as they went in, and a lot of times their count did not match the total. The error was always in Trump’s favor. Even with obvious fraud or error in those precincts, election officials still refused to hand-count the votes.

Further, there was obstructionism everywhere in Republican precincts, with many Republican pollworkers engaging in what appeared to be deliberate fraud right in front of pollwatchers.

Further, exit polls showed Hillary 3%+ in Wisconsin. The final vote was Trump by a hair. An exit poll in one state could go off badly like that, but they went off in over a dozen states, and that’s not possible. It’s not possible. Further, there was a strong red-shift in the Republican direction with 19/20 exit polls going off favoring Republicans, and in 13 different states, polls were off by more than the margin of error. In a real election, you might expect to have one exit poll not match out of 50. There’s no way that 19/50 exit polls were wrong and 13/50 were grotesquely wrong, almost all favoring Republicans. It didn’t happen. It could not have happened.

In Michigan, there were 70,000 undervotes in Detroit alone! That makes no sense, as there are usually 20,000 undervotes in the whole state. There is no way that there were 70,000 blank ballots in Detroit. These “blank ballots” were never recounted because the voter sign-in numbers did not match the counted ballot numbers in those precincts. A Michigan law says that when that happens, that is indicative of electoral fraud, and that means the votes cannot be recounted! Yeah. Michigan says when there’s evidence of fraud, you can’t recount the votes! Wut.

In the recounting that was done, Trump’s attorneys attended all the recounts, shouted down all efforts at a proper recount, and challenged all changed votes.

All pre-polls found Hillary winning handily in Michigan, and exit polls also showed her winning. In fact, Michigan media called the election early because she was wining so handily on exit polls.

In Pennsylvania almost no votes were recounted at all, yet somehow they found 26,000 fake votes for Trump anyway! There were no ballots to count because there were no ballots period. Count was by electronic scan machines which are banned almost all of Europe as too easy to manipulate. The only way to check the vote in Pennsylvania was to examine the computers that counted the ballots themselves by computer forensics experts. Judges in the Great Democracy of America ruled that the Pennsylvania recount could not go forward. Because, you know, recounting hurts our democracy! Yep. That was exactly the Republican argument.

We have to ask ourselves, why did the Republicans fall all over themselves to stop the recounts? If there’s no fraud, count the ballots right? A little suspicious maybe?

So there were no real recounts, and they still found 33,000 fake votes for Trump. 33,000 fake votes for Trump, even without even doing any recounts.

The vote in Florida was impossible. Hillary was winning for a long time with up to 65% of the vote in early voting. 65% had already voted by Election Day, and Hillary had 57%, a huge lead. She even won 28% of Republican women! For Trump to have won, a tsunami of Trump voters would have had to swarm the polls on Election Day and almost no Hillary voters would have had to show up. There is no way that that happened, and Hillary had huge turnout all over the state on Election Day. The nation’s top statisticians have stated that Trump’s win in Florida was “statistically impossible.”

Excellent Evidence that the 2016 Election Was Stolen by Donald Trump and the Republicans via Hacking of Voting Machines

We do not have a democracy in the US anymore, if we ever had one in the first place. We now officially have a dictatorship now that we have solid proof that Donald Trump stole the Presidency via hacking of voting machines that are used to count the votes in many states.

Two Senators in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania also stole their seats with those machines.

The machines were used to steal the vote for Trump in Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. The Republicans have been stealing elections for a long time with these machines.

Even the Democratic wins were actually far greater than what they ended up with. Clinton won one of his elections by 15-20 points, but the machines whittled it way down to half that size or less. They have also been using those damned machines to steal elections in the mid-year. Many seats were stolen in the 2006 midyear elections. I am wondering how many of those state Legislature and Senate seats and governorships have been stolen? The GOP has been on a roll for some time now, especially since Obama came in with many state Legislatures, Senates and Governorships going Republican. In part this is due to many states simply turning redder, but I suspect that in part it may also have been due to fraud with those machines.

You might also be interested to note that Hillary Clinton stole a number of primaries from Bernie Sanders with those same machines.

And in this fake democracy, we can’t even do recounts of stolen elections! There was no proper recount done in Pennsylvania, Michigan or Wisconsin. And the media lied and said the recounts did not uncover any fraud. Recounts done by the states themselves prior to the official recount found 26,000 fake votes for Trump in Pennsylvania, 5,000 fake votes for Trump in Wisconsin and 2,000 fake votes for Trump in Michigan. In Detroit and the surrounding area alone, there were 80,000 undervotes for President. This is unprecedented. In a typical election, there should be maybe 20,000 undervotes in the whole state.

Most of the stolen votes in Michigan were deemed unrecountable based on an insane Michigan law that says were a fraudulent election is suspected (where voter sign-in numbers do not match ballot numbers) the vote in that precinct is “unrecountable.” So we have evidence of possible fraud, that means we can’t recount the votes! 100% of pre-election polls in Michigan predicted a Hillary win by ~3%. There is no way that all of the pre election polls in Michigan were wrong. It’s just not possible.

In Wisconsin the votes in the Democratic-heavy cities were not even recounted. They were just run through the same machines that probably miscounted them in the first place. Running them through the machines again is not a recount. The only valid recount is by hand.

There was no recount in Pennsylvania because all votes in Pennsylvania are unrecountable! They are counted by optical scan machines and there is no paper trail afterwards. There’s nothing to count!

The Trump win in Florida was statistically impossible. Hillary was running ~65% in the early voting, even capturing 28% of Republican women. In order for Trump to surpass that huge early lead there would have to be such a massive turnout of Trump supporters on election day such that would never happen. And there’s no reason why only Hillary voters and not Trump voters would vote early.

A similar scenario occurred in North Carolina. Hillary was up 65% in early voting again with I believe 50% of the vote counted. The Trump win there,  while statistically possible, is highly unlikely as it would rest upon the notion that a huge number of Hillary voters voted early and then never showed up on Election Day and hardly any Trump voters voted early and the vast majority of them voted on Election Day. It’s absurd.

If those elections in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan were so clean, why did the Republicans go crazy trying to stop the recounts? If the election is fair, a recount is nothing to worry about. In this sick joke of a fake democracy, it appears that no Presidential election can ever be recounted no matter how much evidence of fraud. It’s incredible!

Remember when Trump kept saying that the election was going to be rigged? Trump has a habit of projecting and accusing his opponents of doing exactly what he does. Trump was saying that because the election was going to be rigged, by him! In the last few days before the election, Trump and his campaign chair and Giuliani were all extremely confident that Trump would carry Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Everyone else was shaking their heads because Hillary had been leading in almost all polls in those states for some time.

The day before the election, Paul Manafort, Trump’s man with deep connections to Putin’s Russia, told Trump to go to Michigan, despite being behind in all polls there for a long time. Did Manafort know something we do not know? Were the Russians in on the hacking of the election? I would not put it past them, as Putin stole an election in Ukraine a decade ago by hacking the voting machines. Also Russia was caught hacking into a voter registration database of a company in Florida five weeks before the election. That company ran the voter registration database for North Carolina. No one knows what was done in that hack.

The last time election polls were off by this much as in Dewey vs. Truman and polling was in its infancy back then. There is no way on Earth that all of the pollsters got this election wrong. The average of all of the polls was way off in this election. It simply not statistically possible for that to occur in the US. It can’t happen. So none of the pollsters were off. The pollsters were right like they always are. Hillary did win the election except Trump stole it by fraud. Polls cannot predict the outcome of a fraudulent election.

We also know that two Senate seats were stolen this year, one in Wisconsin and one in Pennsylvania.

it is not only Republicans who are stealing elections. This year for the first time, it appears that the Democrats were stealing elections. Of course it was the corporate Democrats around Hillary and the DNC who are the suspects. Hillary appears to have stolen a number of those primaries from Sanders and reduced his lead in others. It looks like the voting machines were used to do this. I would not put it past Hillary to do this. I think she is almost a sociopath.

The voting machines have been being made from Day One by three large corporations. The heads of these corporations are all far rightwing partisans. As soon as those machines got put in, we started seeing a lot of stolen elections for the first time in a long time in the US. Also the software used to count the ballots is proprietary and no one is allowed to look at it. So the elections of the USA are being counted by machines made by a private corporation with proprietary code that no one can look at! Incredible.

This whole thing looks like a Republican plot from the very beginning. Soon after the 2000 debacle which was actually won by Al Gore because Gore actually did win in Florida, Karl Rove and Jack Abramson, the convicted criminal wrote a bill mandating that all states use voting machines in coming elections. Many states then went over to the machines. After these machines were put in in many places, we started seeing a startling number of fraudulent elections. So it looks like that law by Rove and Abramson was written with the knowledge that the Republicans were going to use the machines to steal elections. Computerized voting machines were not in use in 1988, but there is good evidence that Dukakis actually won that election and that Bush Sr. stole it. The votes were being counted by large tallying machines somewhat like the machines that count time cards.

These computerized voting machines have been declared illegal in most of the EU. As usual, the Europeans are far behind us American primitives. In addition, recounts are held regularly in European elections. I believe in Germany now, all major elections go through an automatic hand recount as a matter of course. Now that’s democracy! While democracy blooms in civilized Europe, dictatorship looms in barbarian America.

The mass media refuses to believe that elections are being stolen via these machines. They just will not buy it. I am unsure why this is. The Democratic Party also will not believe that these elections are being stolen, even though they are being stolen right from their own party. I am not sure why that is.

Until we get rid of these damned voting machines, we will never have a democracy in America.

I would also like to point out that the Republican gerrymandering of districts is outrageous and profoundly undemocratic. They have set it up so that no matter what we do, the House of Representatives will be Republican until 2028. There is simply nothing at all we can do to change that. That’s not democracy. That’s dicatorship. Partisan gerrymandering should be illegal. Gerrymandering if it must be done should be done by panels of nonpartisan judges. Studies have shown that nonpartisan gerrymandering results in districts that are much fairer than the partisan ones we have now.

There is no democracy in this country anyway. I don’t think we have had one day of democracy in this country from the very start. The government was set up to be a government of the rich and the elite, and it’s been that way ever since. The people who run this country do not believe democracy. Wealthy elites the world over always hate democracy. Rule by wealthy elites in most places on Earth is dependent on undemocratic means to stay in power. There are just not enough regular working people who are stupid enough to vote for the parties of the rich.

This Time, a Lot of Poor and Working Class Whites Did Not Vote Against Their Best Interests

TJF: and Rob has basically also stated more than once that poor whites vote against their own interests (I partially agree but I think it’s requires a long nuanced discussion – Indiana whites helped put Barack Obama in office in 2008 and Trump in 2016 – Did those broad minded whites in 2008 who supported Obama (Hope and Change) become rabid racists and sexists in 2016 (to be sure there are many of that ilk in Trump’s camp) or something else at work?) .

Look at that Carrier video. I bet everyone in that damn room voted for Trump. People on the Net are telling stories about towns and cities in the Rust Belt where the plants closed up and went to Mexico and threw thousands out of work. One woman said the plant closed in her Ohio town and 2,000 people were thrown out of work. She said the whole town voted for Trump. Another man spoke of some very real poverty now afflicting parts of rural America, maybe especially in the Rust Belt. He said almost all of these towns have homeless people now, homeless Whites. And they never had that before. Many of the homeless are families with children. One town stopped giving out homework assignments because 20% of the students were homeless. This is an all-White school in an all-White town.

In other words, there is mass homelessness in White rural America now.

It’s as clear as air that neither Obama nor Hitlery nor any Democrat gives 1% of a flying fuck about these people. Obama and Hitlery’s response to those poor people being thrown out of work at Carrier would be to laugh and cheer. “That’s the free market!” Hillary would chortle. “We are talking basic free market economics here. If the corporation had to move to Mexico to get higher profits, then that was the right thing to do! Only corporate profits matter! Nothing else does! The Hell with the Little  People!” Her eyes lowered. “And never forget. I was a Goldwater Girl in the early 1960’s. My family was stinking rich. I went to an Ivy League School. I haven’t changed one bit. I have no idea how the Little People live because I’ve been Ruling Class my whole life.”

“We are free marketeers,” Obama would intone. “The only thing that matters is profits for corporations. Nothing else means anything. These trade deals are great because they are help US multinationals make even more billions in profits. So they are bad for 90% of the people. They’re all losers anyway. The real winners are millionaires like Hillary and me. They rest of these working stiffs are all losers. Even my hero Ronald Reagan said so.”

Actually, both Hitlery and Obama recommend “education” and “retraining” for the millions fired from their jobs by free trade. They’ve been talking about this crap forever, and it’s never worked.

Death to Globalism! Death to the Globalists!

Carrier Air Conditioning Video: Why Trump Won

Here.

Trump didn’t win, but this is why it was as close as it was. And if you want to frame it as Hillary lost, Trump won, which is fine with me because Hillary deserved to lose, then this is why Trump won. Right here, in Indiana, Ground Zero.

Note: The Democratic Party has nothing, I mean nothing, to say to these people. Of course they voted Trump. Do I blame them? Hell no.

Bigfoot News October 7, 2016

Warning: Long, Runs to 76 pages on the Net.

Yay! Another long awaited Bigfoot news! How bout that?

pennsylvania-festival

The famous Pennsylvania Bigfoot festival photo. Didn’t the photographer go back there and take a picture of the same spot, and these weird things were not there? This pic continues to be a mystery. Photographer seemed to be a reliable fellow.

Melba Ketchum DNA study replicated three teams by three different scientific teams! Of course in science, replication is everything. If you cannot replicate your findings, they are near-worthless, as all scientific findings must be replicated, usually not just once but a number of times.

Melba’s study initially was greeted with round of derision worse than you hear at a violent soccer match. Nearly the entire community trashed her without even reading her findings. A glum press conference was held in Texas starring several Bigfoot luminaries who all acted like they would rather be someplace else. See below about how there was not even any attempt to replicate the study by anyone in science. They simply said that the whole idea that Sasquatches exist is insane and they refused to read any further than that. Gotta love those capital-S Scientists!

Then for a long time nothing happened. But just recently I heard that the Ketchum study has been replicated not once, not twice, but actually three separate times!

danny-sweeten

Still from the great Danny Sweeten video. Another male “swimmer” type. Notice the long, elegant limbs and the somewhat akimbo limb style, the nonhuman strike, the apparent cupping of the hands and the appearance of a tall peaked cap in the head – really a coned head. The back story on this one is amazing. Danny Sweeten was hunting in the swamps of Texas when he surprised a sleeping Sasquatch under a tree. The Sasquatch leaped up and punched Danny in the face, knocking him down! Then it ran away very fast. However, Danny was still able to get a nice video of the thing running away. Danny had documented injuries to his face, and he visited a dentist as a result of getting hit in the teeth. The dentist visit is also documented. The video got a lot of airplay, and Sweeten became famous, but he didn’t make a nickel. Furious that he missed his chance at riches, Sweeten did what a lot of witnesses do, faked a video after shooting a real video. A year later, he shot a hoaxed video and turned it in, hoping this time to get the jackpot he missed out on. Sadly, he was caught red-handed and now Sweeten’s name is mud, and tragically, this clip is also badly tainted due to being shot by a known hoaxer. But I still believe that Danny Sweeten’s first video with the incredible back story is a true Sasquatch video. Sweeten is sort of a Shakespearean tragic character who falls on his sword. It’s an ancient trope, as old as man.

First replication of Ketchum’s findings. The first replication was by a man named Dr. David Swenson. He is a top genetics researcher who has published over 130 genetics papers in scientific journals. He was interested in the findings, but as he said in an interview, he had always thought that that Sasquatch was just a legend or a made-up story. He never believed it.

But he decided to look into Melba’s findings. He blasted them and took some time reading over what he saw. At first he just looked at one chromosome, and in the video interview he did, he only talks about looking at that one chromosome.

The skeptards have dismissed his findings because “he only looked at one chromosome.” But his findings were remarkable. He stated that in that one chromosome, he was able to validate Melba’s findings. He found that indeed this was the DNA of a hybrid that was half human on the female side and half some relict or older hominid on the male side. He was absolutely stunned and could not believe his findings. He discussed them in an interview with Joe Rogan. Rogan asked him if this meant that he believed that Sasquatches exist, and he hedged his answer, scientist that he is. He said:

“Well, I would not go this far. Let’s put it this way. One thing I know for sure is there is an unknown animal in the Pacific Northwest. Let’s just leave it like that.”

Some of the usual skeptards, mostly from one of the worst bunch of Bigfooters out there, the pond scum coagulating around this abomination of a Facebook group otherwise known as Skeptard Central, said I based my whole post on “second hand word of mouth.” Well of course. That’s how everything is in this field. People say things, I write them down and report them. What’s so wrong about that? That’s how this game works. We don’t have much of anything better than “second hand word of mouth” anyway. We haven’t proven jack about these things. We don’t even know they exist. All we have are “second hand word of mouth” sighting reports.

There. There’s the video above of Swenson discussing his replication of Ketchum’s findings. Now it’s not “second hand word of mouth” anymore, right? You satisfied?

Another skeptard argument, this one much more malicious (But what do you expect from skeptards?) was that Swensen is not credible because “he and Melba go way back.” So this distinguished genetic scientist is not credible because he is an old friend of Melba’s? This man is on the verge of committing scientific fraud in order to help an old friend! Wow, breathtaking accusation.

However, now I have learned that this is not true, and he has not known Melba for a long time. He only got interested in her after he heard about her study. And at that time, he didn’t even believe in Sasquatch! Then he did replication work and was stunned to discover that she was absolutely right! So if agreeing with Melba means “he and Melba go way back,” well then, I must say is that that is a pretty horrible argument, but it’s typical of the skeptards.

Another argument, not really by skeptards but nonetheless a skeptic rejoinder, is the one noted above that Swensen only looked at one chromosome, so the results are not valid. There is a bit of a point here, but how do you look at a single chromosome of any mammal and somehow conclude that it is a hybrid between a human female and a relict hominid male? I don’t get it.

On the other hand, I have now been able to kill that argument too. A source very close to Ketchum has told me that Swensen actually looked at the entire genome and then concluded the same thing, that it was a hybrid between a human female and an unknown relict hominid male.

So it looks like both skeptic arguments have been shot down on that one. Don’t worry, they will come back with new ones.

great-profile-shot-as-bf-crosses-path

From a great clip. The clip is only a few seconds long and is called Bigfoot Crossing a Path. This is a still from the clip. The clip is very seldom seen, and this photo is not well known. Notice the hunched over position, the weird nonhuman squared off skull, and best of all, the sheen from real hair glowing in the sunlight. Costumes never have sheen, ever. Remember that.

Second replication of Ketchum’s findings. The second replication occurred when a lab team associated with an unknown university tried to replicate Ketchum’s findings. Apparently they thought the results were some sort of a joke, and they set out to prove that. They did use some of Ketchum’s actual samples. She still has quite a bit of samples left over from the old study. They had full institutional support until they concluded the study. They tested both NuDNA and MtDNA, and they replicated Ketchum’s findings in toto.

However the institution was only giving them support on the supposition that they would show that Ketchum’s findings were false. As soon as they replicated her findings, institutional support was pulled. The team said they were not going to publish their findings, as a replication of Ketchum’s findings would be a “career-killer” as they put it. However, they did inform Ketchum of the results. They also do not wish to be named for the same reason given for not publishing their findings.

From Ketchum’s Facebook page:

HUGE NEWS: Our research has now been independently verified genome wise. I don’t know when or how they’ll come out with it and I’m not at liberty to say who yet, but it’s finished and matches what we got down to the smallest details. Thank you, God!

Another post about the independent study from her FB page:

Thanks everyone for the kind words and prayers. It’s been a tough road but at some point the bad will be over since this independent study by acclaimed scientists will come out. Yippee.

Of course, skeptics will have a field day with this one, claiming that Ketchum is lying. But if she is lying about the results of another study, is that not scientific fraud? I believe it is. Scientific fraud is a very serious charge. It’s effectively a career-ender in science. Most people proven to have committed scientific fraud will never publish again. So I would just like to point out that when skeptics accuse Ketchum of making up these results, they are accusing her of scientific fraud, a very serious charge. Glad we cleared that up.

Update: The skeptards are already running crazy with this one, saying she has no evidence other than Ketchum’s own word. That is correct, but the whole reason that the team didn’t want to publish was because replicating Ketchum would mean the end of their careers. In fact, the support from the university was apparently contingent on proving Ketchum wrong. As soon as she was replicated, the university’s support ended.

But why did the team feel that way? Because of the despicable attitude created by the skeptards in the very first place, which now permeates “science” from top to bottom. But let us grant them that one. They are correct. All we have is Ketchum’s word on this one. But if this thing really has been replicated three different times now, this won’t be the last time. Replications will continue in the future and at some point, somebody is going to publish.

I specifically asked Richard Stubstad whether it was possible that Ketchum was fabricating the results, making stuff up or committing scientific fraud. He told me, “That is not possible.” Richard was a statistician, and he often reported his views in terms of statistical possibilities. So when he says that she could not have committed scientific fraud, he is saying that the odds of her doing that are so low as to be effectively nil. He told me that she was a good, sincere and morally proper scientist, and she just didn’t have it in her to commit scientific fraud. Keep in mind that Stubstad and Ketchum did not like each other at all. And even this man who did not like her said she was not capable of faking results.

Here is Ketchum reporting on the second replication of her study. There. Now it’s not “second hand word of mouth.” Satisfied?

Third replication of Ketchum’s results. I have just received word that a third lab has replicated Ketchum’s results at least in part. This lab came to Ketchum intrigued by her findings and said they wanted to try to replicate. Ketchum gave them some of her samples, and they went off to the lab. Unfortunately, they only tested MtDNA. But they did replicate her study in a sense.

First they used a hair specialist who found that the hair was not human and not that of any known animal. Then the MtDNA tested human, which is exactly correct. So you have proven nonhuman hair testing as human, and in a sense Ketchum is replicated again. It would have been nice if they would have done NuDNA, but they did not. I am not sure if this team is going to publish or not. I will have to ask my source about that.

The skeptards are also going nuts with this one, claiming it is “second hand word of mouth.” Correct, so far they have not published. But maybe they will. Anyway, all evidence must be reported, optimal or not.

Update on the Sierra Kills! I will not go into detail about the Kills, but you can look it up on the Net if you are interested. Briefly, Justin Smeja and an unidentified hunting partner shot and killed two Sasquatches on October 10, 2010 in the Plumas National Forest about 25 miles west of Sierra Valley. I am 100% certain that these kills occurred.

Yes, you heard of the Sierra Kills, but those were surely not the last Sasquatches to be killed by humans. An old friend of mine, in discussing the Sierra Kills case, admitted that it would never amount to anything for a variety of reasons, mostly because as he said, the people involved in the Sierra Kills both directly and peripherally (you know who you are) do not want anything to come of it.

Was Sasquatch flesh retained from the Sierra Kills? Yes. How was it retained? No one knows because Justin Smeja’s wild story about a dog digging through three feet of snow to find a piece of Bigfoot steak is now completely trashed by the fact that he has been carting around a piece of Black Bear to various DNA labs and having it tested and claiming that it is the same piece of “Sasquatch” that he sent to Ketchum. In doing this, Justin is in a sense negating his whole story, though I think his real mission is probably to make Melba look bad. I believe I know why Justin is doing this among other reasons, but I will not elaborate here.

We had a piece of Sasquatch (which was hilariously referred to as the Bigfoot Steak) that was retained from the Kills. This piece was proven to be a Sasquatch in one DNA study, which was then replicated by one scientist and two more teams.

Also we know that Justin (who I know fairly well) did not even believe in Sasquatch before this incident occurred. We know this because this is what all of his friends told us. In fact he openly ridiculed anyone who believed in it.

Until that fateful late afternoon in early October six years ago, when a large adult male Sasquatch and one his children, a juvenile Sasquatch, were shot and killed by Justin Smeja to the southwest of Mount Haskell in the Plumas National Forest in the Sierra Nevada.

What is the likelihood that someone who openly ridiculed those who believed in Sasquatches would concoct an insane story like this? Just about zero. For money? Justin hasn’t made a nickel off of this crazy story, and in fact, he told me that this incident had actually caused him to lose a lot of money. So what’s in it for him? Nothing. How about fame? Justin told me that the only fame he got was infamy, and that’s not the sort of fame that he wants.

Perhaps Justin is a crazy guy who just makes up crazy stuff. Well then, he had to get his very level headed hunter friend (Who refused to be shown on videotape – why if he is after fame?) to go along with this insane story. But I know Justin Smeja. Justin Smeja, whatever you think of him, and I actually like the guy, is probably one of the most level headed, no-BS men that I have ever met. If you were looking for the exact opposite of someone who would make up an insane story like this, Justin is your man.

russian-bigfoot-on-cliff

This is a great still of a Yeti on a cliff in Russia. The film is only less than 10 seconds long. Look again at that long, slim, “swimmer” physique with the spindly, akimbo limbs and what looks like a coned head. It also seems to be cupping its hands backwards in the way that they do and that hoaxers never do. That also looks like real hair because it is shining in the sun. Suits never shine in the sun, ever. Photo is little known, and the video itself is not much watched anymore.

Road to Damascus conversions of Sasquatch witnesses. Since the killings, my understanding is that Justin has been much of his free time and certainly much of his summers up in the Sierras looking for Sasquatches. He now knows that they are real, and he is out to in a sense be vindicated for all of the humiliation that he went through. Rick Dyer Redux, but with a much better lead actor this time.

Now let us suppose that Justin made this story up for whatever nutty reason. Why on Earth, if he made up a stupid story, would he spend almost every free minute for the next several years up in the mountains hoping to see another Sasquatch? No one would do that. That’s absurd.

You see this over and over with witnesses. They see a Sasquatch, and it’s a Road to Damascus conversion. Their whole life changes, and in quite a few cases, they dedicate the rest of their lives to proving that these things are real. Bobby Short, Don Meldrum, John Bindernagel, Adrian Erickson, and Derek Randles are some of the names of the greats of our field who saw these things, sometimes just once, and then went on to devoting the rest of their lives to proving that they exist. I have known or extensively studied the histories of all of these people. Two are actual scientists. Bobby Short was a nurse. Derek Randles is one of the most no-bullshit guys you will ever meet.  Adrian Erickson saw Sasquatches four separate times.

bigfoot-doing-a-tree-knock

Sasquatch doing a tree knock. Look at those very long spindly looking limbs with the odd tapered look. These types are males. Males are very athletic and are said to look like “swimmers.” They are sleeker and taller than the females who are stockier and shorter. I think this is from a video taken in woods of Michigan by a guy who was staying in a snowed in cabin for a couple of weeks. The video is in a snowstorm. The Sasquatch runs incredibly fast and moves its body in an inhumanly fast and Houdiniesqe fashion. The man who took the video thought this was a young male. He said that in the winter, the Sasquatches holed up deep in snowed-in backcountry and sort of almost hibernated. The older males, females and any young stayed back there. They sent the young males out to act as “scouts” to see if anyone was coming to their hideout. The video is very creepy and hard to find now.

The clincher from the Sierra Kills – juvenile Sasquatches with heads as big as five gallon buckets! One thing clinched the Sierra Kills story for me. When Justin first told a Canadian man over the phone about the Kills after his famous initial posting on Taxidermy.net, one of the things that he said was that the juvenile Sasquatch had a huge head, as big as a five gallon bucket. This fact is controversial in the community, but I believe it is true. You can see it in the Pancake Video from the ill-fated Kentucky Project.

Here a juvenile Sasquatch (a female named Matilda) is seen coming at night to grab some pancakes off of table where the pancakes were laid out for the Sasquatches at night. This may sound insane, but the female half of the couple at the site, Sissy, said she had been feeding the Sasquatches there for some time now. She learned this from her mother. Her mother had fed the Sasquatches for a long time, and she also fed them pancakes. So Sissy grew up as a girl with a mother who believed in Sasquatches and said she fed them on a regular basis. So when Sissy grew up, she knew the Sasquatches were still out there, so she continued the feeding.

The Erickson Project occurred when Adrian Erickson bought the Kentucky Project property on Mann Road in Crittenden, Kentucky where Sissy had been feeding the Sasquatches. He then stationed Leila Hadj-Chikh, who had a PhD in Ecology from Yale, along with Dennis Pfohl from Colorado at the house for the purpose of obtaining evidence of the Sasquatches that were there.

In the Pancake Video, a much ridiculed aspect of the video is that it portrays a child wearing a turban who comes up to the table at night to snatch the pancakes. However, that is no turban. It looks like a turban because juvenile Sasquatches for some reason have huge heads, as big as a five gallon bucket, as Smeja noted.

As soon as I heard that Justin had noted that the juvenile had a huge head, I knew he was telling the truth. That is because the fact that the babies have huge heads is known by almost no one other than a few Sasquatch experts. In fact, it is widely debated in the field, and some say that it is not even true that they have huge heads. But there is no way that someone like Justin, who did not even believe in Sasquatches, ridiculed anyone who did, and consequently had no interest in the ridiculous subject could possibly know this incredibly obscure fact about the juveniles having gigantic heads. Forget it. Not possible.

bigfoot-at-fisher-river
This photo is also very little known. I think it is from a video. The video is not very good quality and it was taken from some distance, but look at those weird, spindly, akimbo limbs again. You never see those in a hoax.

Bigfoot Steak or Black Bear Tenderloin – this is the question. Justin gave Melba a piece of what he thought was the Sasquatch that he killed. She tested it, and by DNA proved that it came from a Sasquatch. However, Justin and Melba then had a serious falling out. Justin then began carting around more pieces of what he claimed was the same flesh he gave to Melba to four DNA labs, all of which said the piece tested out bear.

The result of Justin’s DNA testing project? Melba Ketchum looks like a liar and an idiot for receiving a piece of bear and concluding that it was actually a piece of Sasquatch.

However, we now know that there are different pieces of flesh. The piece of flesh that he gave to Melba is not from the same flesh that tested out multiple times as Black Bear. The reports proving that we are dealing with two different pieces of flesh can be found here in scanned copies portrayed on Scott Carpenter’s great website, the Bigfoot Field Journal.

I believe the whole story of the Sierra Kills has not been told, which goes without saying, as Justin has been mysteriously toting around a piece of bear claiming it was part of a piece of Sasquatch he sent to Ketchum. However, I believe that there is much more to it than that, and in fact we will never know the true story of the Sierra Kills, in particular what happened after the Sasquatches were killed.

I will not elaborate further except to say that I heave dealt with my theories on this site a lot in the past, and all writing about it does is make people furious at me and call me a liar. There appear to be have been a number of Sasquatch killings in the last 200 years. Most of them are obviously clouded in mystery as all killings of unproven creatures are. I am quite sure that the Sierra Kills will fade into history as just one more Sasquatch killing story that is shrouded in mystery if not controversy like most of the rest of them. Enough of the Sierra Kills!

bigfoot-on-south-river-ontario

Bigfoot on South River, Ontario. Notice that walk again. Notice the cupped hands. Ever seen a hoax with cupped hands? Me either. Look at the coned head. It often looks like to me that they are wearing peaked Cat in the Hat cap or a ski cap. That is probably because those garments have a peaked look to them. Photo is little known.

The loathsome trashing of Melba Ketchum by Big Science. When Melba’s study first appeared, the scientific community first tried to ignore her like a fart in a crowd that everyone hopes will dissipate and will hopefully not be spoken of. We all know it’s there, it stinks like Hell, but we have all agreed that this is so embarrassing that no one should talk about it. Which pretty much sums up Big Science’s initial response.

However, the Bigfoot community was going bonkers over this study, mostly beating Melba over the head senseless with a verbal cudgel. At some point, Melba was the elephant in the room that Big Science could no longer ignore, probably because by now it’s pooping on the rug.

First they ignored her. Then they ridiculed her.

When ignoring her didn’t work, Big Science went to Plan B: Ridicule.

A few articles were published here and there, and mostly the community laughed her off as a pitiful joke. But they all had a good sadistic laugh at the poor woman ‘s expense. However the truth is that not one single scientist who trashed Ketchum even read the study. They simply dismissed it out of hand, which is typical of Mainstream Science and is one of my beefs with them and their Scientific God or Gods that they worship in so fundamentalist a fashion. Nor were any attempts made to replicate her findings. They simply looked at the title and findings, started laughing, threw the study on the floor, and asked the bartender for another round please. They turned the Trashing of Melba into a big party.

Melba in a sense botched the roll-out of the study in a variety of ways, but much of it was probably not her fault.

The Bigfoot community had a big laugh about the study despite the fact that, like Big Science, no one even read it. The performance of some of these clowns was disgusting. One histrionic wag often off his much-needed meds called her “the cat doctor” because she is a veterinarian. He nearly spit the phrase out with contempt when he said it. Over and over it was said that a veterinarian could not know anything about genetics.

However, Melba has published several studies on animal genetics in genetics journals, and she ran (poorly) a now bankrupt DNA lab in Texas. The lab specialized in animal genetics.

Further, Melba was called upon to take part in the DNA project to find the remains of victims killed in the 9-11 terror attacks. DNA was needed because there was almost nothing left of many of the victims. Hence, pieces of human were wrapped up and shipped to the DNA lab, where geneticists tried to match the piece of human to one of the victims. In this macabre manner, most if not all of the 9-11 victims were identified. Only the best geneticists in the US were even asked to participate in this process,  so the fact that Melba was chosen shows that she knows her stuff when it comes to genetics.

Further, before he died, Richard Stubstad told me that Melba, in addition to being brilliant, definitely knew her stuff when it came to genetics.

hunters-photos-se-oklahoma

Hunter’s photos from Southeast Oklahoma, the caption says. I am not familiar with this photo, and it is little known. The first pic off to the left looks excellent. Look at that shaggy coat. I cannot tell you how many photos I have seen with a shaggy coat that looks just like that. You know how many hoaxer photos I have seen with a coat like that? Zero. Whatever that thing on the right is, I have no idea except that it is huge.

The saga of the Gigantic Sasquatch Lemur from 60 million years ago. The community had a huge guffaw over what they said was Melba’s claim that Sasquatches were actually gigantic lemurs from Madagascar that lived 60 million years ago. These lemurs actually existed way back then as we have learned from the fossil record. How these giant lemurs somehow leaped from an African island 60 million years ago to deep woods of the Pacific Northwest in our modern era without being spotted in the interim in either time or space is uncertain. Perhaps they rode some Sasquatch Lemur Time Warp. Who knows? See video below and say hello to Brad for me please.

Of course such a claim is absurd on its face, but her study was so poorly written (another botch, see below) that one could actually muddle through the fractured syntax and tortured prose to conclude that this was indeed the absurd claim she was making.

However, the truth is that Melba never said that Sasquatches were Giant Lemurs from Madagascar from 60 million years ago. That is a false reading of her paper. Instead she said that Sasquatches had a gene that caused their eyes to glow in the dark that traced back to these extinct Giant Lemurs from Island Africa. Got it? And yes, Sasquatches do have eyes that glow in the dark. There are many videos on Youtube showing this.

james-rosick

I always liked this photo. Credit to James Rosick. I think this was taken in Oregon, and I think they were hunting when this was taken. I believe the man in the foreground did not know that the thing was in the background. Do you see how the arms and legs are all akimbo like that? I have seen so many photos and even videos that look like that. I am certain this is real because I have never seen a fake with the arms and legs splayed out like that. You would think the hoaxers would get wise to it, but they never do.

Melba’s roll-out of her study was heavily botched, as noted above. She could not find a journal which would print her findings. It was in peer review at Nature, the flagship journal of science, for some time but was rejected there. Editors at other journals openly told her that their scientific careers would be destroyed if they ran her study in their journals. So Melba bought her own journal and changed the name of it in a rather underhanded and sleazy way, lying continuously the whole time she was doing this.

Then she claimed she did her own peer review with a few scientists and it passed. She never showed us any evidence of this review. I doubt if the study was ever peer-reviewed. She probably just lied and said it was so she might be regarded as even slightly serious. Alas, it was all for naught, as the study was rejected out of hand, peer review or no peer review. In addition, her rather sleazy shenanigans with the frankly vanity journal that she bought in order to run her study added to the ridicule and derision from the scientific community, not that I blame them, as the whole thing seemed pretty amateurish and had a bad smell to it.

The thing is that if your scientific study cannot pass peer review at a real scientific journal, you can always go out and create or buy a vanity journal, make it your own journal and then print your own stuff. You can even claim that you did your own peer review. In this sense, dubious findings which fail to even make it through peer review at refereed journals can be published by any scientist, amateur or professional, with a bit of cash and a lot of nerve and gall.

On the other hand, almost no one will take your vanity journal study seriously, similar to the way almost no one reads or takes seriously vanity books that are published on their own by authors in a similar fashion when they can’t find a real publisher. Vanity journals and publishers are the last refuge of throwaway studies and books that the industry thinks are so bad that they won’t even print a single copy. They are regarded as a joke category for, well, losers who can’t make it in publishing or science. Sort of, “If no one else thinks your work is any good, just publish it yourself!” Embarrassing.

Nowadays with self-publishing this is all changing somewhat, but still self-published books often have horrible layout, typeface, photos and proofreading no matter the quality of the actual writing, which is sometimes quite good. These books scream amateur so loudly you want to throw them across the room. So self-publishing, while a step up from the vanity presses of yore, continues to suffer from much the same credibility gap as the old presses.

I always liked this one. Another photo from Pennsylvania. Taken by an older farmer. Good backstory, and the farmer seemed very reliable.

Sad Erickson Project press conference. There was a nearly pitiful press conference held with in Texas with Melba, Adrian Erickson, Dennis Pfohl, and some other superstars of the scene. The presser was poorly handled. A few shocking snippets of Erickson’s Sasquatch videotapes from the Erickson Project were shown, but my sources tell me that a lot of the best material was withheld. For what reason? No one seems to know. Supposedly for a TV show starring Erickson which has not yet come to pass.

Melba rattled off her DNA findings. Nobody showed up for the presser, and it received almost no media. Adrian’s videos, including the fascinating one of Matilda, the young female Sasquatch from the Kentucky Project sleeping on the ground that could not have been faked, were laughed off again. There were also a few new videos, but they were not nearly as impressive as Sleeping Matilda. Erickson looked glum through the whole thing. Melba was earnest. Pfohl tried his best. The whole thing was embarrassing, but I think they tried their best.

white-bf

OK, that is so weird. This resembles some of those weird White Sasquatch photos out of Texas. Taken at night as you can see. This photo is little known.

Adrian Erickson, failure and fool? Not so fast now! Adrian Erickson saw Sasquatches four separate times. After the last time, he reportedly said, “I am getting tired of seeing these things. I am going to prove that they exist.” Hence he spent $3 million of his own hard cash in an attempt to prove that they exist. The Erickson Project is typically regarded as a failure in which Erickson wasted his money.

sheep_farmers_shocking_bigfoot_video

What in God’s name is that? The caption says Sheep Farmer’s Shocking Bigfoot Video. OK, well, which video are we talking about here? Look at that stride. Humans don’t walk like that. And do you see some gray on the bottom of the foot?

However, he used that money to shoot some excellent Sasquatch video which was not faked, and he helped fund Melba Ketchum’s Sasquatch DNA project which not only proved that Sasquatches exist but has now been replicated by three separate scientific teams. Adrian, like Melba, has been heavily trashed by this episode (Melba openly states tragically that it ruined her career), however I believe that in the end, both will be vindicated and will come to be regarded as among the Greats of our field, up there with Roger Patterson, Bob Gimlin and the rest.

weird-kentucky-sas

An extremely weird Sasquatch photo from Kentucky. Was this taken near the Janice Carter habituation site? I forget. There were all sorts of weird characters running around that site for a while snapping all manner of funny photos. Unfortunately the people taking the photos were so weird and marginal that no one much looked at them. This photo has always freaked me out. What the Hell is that?

Bryan Sykes DNA study. Here is Ketchum commenting on Brian Sykes going on Coast to Coast radio and attacking Melba’s DNA study:

I received a copy of the nicest email from a guy that wrote C to C. I wanted to share it. It humbles me when people are so gracious. It’s all of you here and people like this who sent this to my public page that make all of the hate bearable. I just want to thank all of you for your kind words, support, and encouragement. I love y’all! I haven’t heard back from George K. yet. I’ll keep you posted.

Hi George and George,

I’m a huge Coast fan and Coast Insider, and I literally listen to the show everyday. Usually, I am very happy with Coast, but today after listening to the show with Brian Sykes, I must say I am very upset. During his appearance with Dave Schraeder this weekend, he seriously and unfairly badmouthed Melba Ketchum and her amazing ground-breaking DNA study of Bigfoot.

Sykes was totally arrogant throughout the show and was obviously very ill-informed about Melba’s work, nonetheless he proceeded to trash talk her and her study. It was disturbing and unworthy of Coast. I know neither of you hosted the show, but I wanted to ask you to please give some airtime to Melba Ketchum to refute the baseless accusations that Sykes leveled against her and her study. Melba deserves a chance to address this. Thank you.

Cheers,

More posts from Melba about Sykes, all from her FB page:

Normally I just let all the garbage go, but Sykes is a scientist and has been nasty about our study, yet he’s not been at Oxford for many years (quote from Oxford) ,and without keeping up with the technology, you’re a dinosaur within a year or so at the rate technology is developing. He makes up an “institute” at Oxford to publish his paper, which you NEVER do (once again quoting Oxford as saying there is no such institute).

He disses bioinformatics, which is the most cutting edge analysis method for whole genomes known to mankind, preferring the “golden age of genetics”. His paper was proven wrong about the bear genetics by other geneticists, and they wrote a published response to the Royal Academy. All of this can be found in the UK press and the Royal Academy, so I’m not saying anything that’s not public knowledge.

He’s a mtDNA scientist, so he’s not skilled in all of the disciplines in our paper.

I’m not either on all of it – that’s why there are numerous authors in our manuscript. Each scientist wrote according to their discipline. Like the bioinformatics was written by the bioinformaticist. The electron microscopy by the head of that department at Texas A&M and so forth. I’m only the lead author and therefore responsible for answering the questions and correspondence for it, writing my part, and putting it all together.

We used 12 labs and they used one US mtDNA lab, not Oxford and only tested a small portion of the mtDNA loop. No other genetic testing was done..

And after all of this, he has the audacity to diss our work. How unprofessional and naive. Bless his heart. I can prove ours is not contaminated by human or other mammals. I did a video on it. He forgets I’m a forensic scientist, and all crime scenes are subject to contamination, so I know how to make sure it’s not there.

One more thing. SYKES CONTACTED ME before his paper, and I offered him full access to samples, research and even offered to take him to the habituation site. I have the emails. Then he contacts me back and says he’s not coming. He didn’t even have to come here to have access to everything, but he blew me off after I offered everything. So that speaks a lot for his wanting to get to the truth. I don’t say anything I can’t prove, and I have the emails to back this up. If he had worked with me, he would know why the seven Sasquatch samples in his study wouldn’t run. It took us months to figure this out. In his paper he says he doesn’t understand why they didn’t run, but I know…

I think it would be very interesting to figure out why those seven samples would not run at all.

Reason Bryan Sykes study failed. Sykes was given a very large number of all sorts of samples. Apparently a number of them were from Sasquatches, but quite a few others were from known animals or even people.

My contact at Ketchum’s study gave me the rundown on her group’s opinion of what went down in the Sykes study:

Sykes used a hair specialist to look at his samples before he used them. What the purpose of this hair specialist was is not known, since he didn’t appear to screen much of anything. The Ketchum camp believes that Sykes’ hair specialist knew what Sasquatch hairs look like. They do have a characteristic quality that makes them look like no known animal, nor do they appear human, though they look more human than anything else.

Ketchum’s people felt that the hair specialist had specifically weeded out all of the Sasquatch samples and only sent samples of known animals and humans to Sykes, possibly disposing of all of the Sasquatch samples. Why he would do this is not known, but the contact told me that there are a number of researchers who are either professionally jealous of Ketchum or for one reason or another want to discredit her study. The contact implied that Sykes or at least his hair specialist was one of those.

“The fix is in,” he told me in relation to this and a number of other professional attempts to sabotage or discredit Ketchum’s findings.

Major proponents of Ape Theory know they are wrong! A war has been going on for a long time in the scene between proponents of the Ape Hypothesis, which states that Sasquatches are apes, and believers in the Hominid Hypothesis, which states that they are a type of people, albeit prehistoric men.

An anonymous source who is very deep into the scene has told me that a number of the major proponents of the Ape Hypothesis know that they are wrong and know that Sasquatches are a type of hominid, but they feel that if they change their theory now, their careers will be over. He named a few names, but I am not going to repeat them here. Suffice to say that they are people that everyone in the scene has heard of. Now don’t any of you big proponents of the Ape Theory go writing me angry mails now! I didn’t name any names, right? Could be anyone, right?

But this sure is shocking news!

Are Ape Theory proponents sabotaging Hominid Theory people? According to a source very deep into the scene, sabotaging is really the wrong word to use. Instead, the Ape Theory people systematically ignore all evidence that does not fit in with their theory. They dismiss Ketchum’s DNA study on hazy or shaky grounds, and when on TV, they simply never mention it. They more or less act like Ketchum’s paper does not even exist.

However, I have good evidence that well-known Ape Theory proponent Matt Moneymaker has sabotaged a number of sighting reports in his database by removing witness accounts that describe the Sasquatch as looking human. Richard Hucklebridge was run off the BFRO because he confronted Matt over his alteration of data. Wow! Matt Moneymaker altering scientific data to fit it into his pet theory! Sleazy or what?

Sasquatches actually cloak! I know this sounds completely insane, and for a long time, I laughed at the people who believed in cloaking, as I thought they were were woo types. However, now an anonymous source who is also an excellent researcher presented me with some evidence that Sasquatches actually do cloak. He showed me a photo of a cloaking Sasquatch and outlined the Sasquatch in red ink. You could indeed see an indistinct shadow there.

He told me that Sasquatches cloak by using their infrasound to bend light waves, making them appear to be somewhat invisible. They’re not actually invisible, but they look instead like an indistinct light shadow that could be anything. Apparently via infrasound you may be able to bend light waves to produce this effect. It’s quite amazing, and this is a scientific explanation that could theoretically actually make sense.

This clears up so many things. Remember all the reports of Sasquatches vanishing into thin air, even in the Arizona and Texas desert? I always thought that was completely insane, but there have been so many reports that you start to wonder. There was once a page up called Desert Sasquatch that included a lot of these weird reports along with a lot of other very woo stuff. However, the female author was scientific minded and offered possible scientific solutions (highly speculative of course) for how the Sasquatches could be doing some of these woo things. She also had a theory for the “Sasquatch disappearing into thin air” observations.

Notice how many times people report that these things are impossible to see? Maybe that’s because they cloak much of the time they are around us!  Notice how many people say you only see them when they want you to see them? Well, maybe we only see them when they take their cloaking off in order to be seen for some reason!

Another thing that I have noticed so many times is that people take photos of videos where they can’t see much of anything in the background or at least there are certainly no Sasquatches. They just shoot a video of a hike, the forest outside their cabin or the field next door. It is only when they go in to look at the photos or video that they shot that they notice the Sasquatch that they somehow could not see at the time! Now I am wondering if this cloaking only works on the human eye and not on cameras. After all, eyeballs and photo lenses work in completely different ways.

Perhaps the human eye is subject to this light-bending effect but cameras are not? If that is so, then that is an excellent explanation for all of the cases we have of people shooting photography with nothing in the background but landscape and only seeing the Sasquatch after they are looking at the film or video later on. That’s because the Sasquatch was invisible to the human eye but not to the camera lens. It’s just a theory, but it would explain a major problem in Sasquatch sightings which is how Sasquatches unseen at the time of the photographing suddenly show up later when you are looking at the film.

This is one of the most fantastic Sasquatch videos I have ever seen. It is from Sasquatch Ontario. The fellow who runs that organization is named Mike and is despised by most everyone in the scene because he refuses to cooperate with other researchers and fights with almost anyone. Apparently he is a complete SOB.

But this video is simply incredible. Notice the obviously cloaking Sasquatch in the background speaking and singing to the researcher. This has been called a hoax, but how in the Hell do you hoax that? How do you make that perfectly-shaped thing in the background, and why would you make it so indistinct like that? Is Sasquatch Ontario a special effects studio? I don’t think so.

I know someone who is familiar with Mike and has been out to his habituation site. This man told me that Mike is 100% real, and he is not hoaxing at all.

Now once you accuse someone of hoaxing, shouldn’t you prove it? OK, people say this video is hoaxed. Got any evidence that it’s hoaxed? Can you prove it? Well if you have no evidence, then be quiet about the hoaxing charge!

The bizarre method of Sasquatch speech. As you can see in the video above, that thing is speaking in the strangest way. The latest theory for why Sasquatches sound so damn weird is because they speak on the inhale instead of speaking on the exhale as we do. That thing in the video is speaking and singing on the inhale! No wonder it sounds so weird. Try speaking on the inhale if you can manage it, and see how it sounds. Isn’t that weird? Why the Hell do they speak on the inhale?

And one more thing, if you were going to hoax a Sasquatch talking, why in God’s name would you record the human hoaxer speaking on the inhale of all things? No one would do that. Further, some of the sounds being produced by that thing seem to beyond the range of the human vocal tract.

Possible Sasquatch seen on Survivorman! Les Stroud did a Survivorman show for a couple of years on TV. The show was broken up into a number of parts, and then the parts were further broken up into Parts 1 and 2. There were at least eight separate Survivorman Bigfoot portions. The labeling looked like say Survivorman Bigfoot 7, Part 1, for example.

No one knows what is in this video. Some are saying it is a tree, a stump, a shadow or a rock. It could not have been hoaxed because Stroud does not hoax. Not only that, but this possible Sasquatch was not seen until the show appeared on TV! It was only then that watchful viewers noticed the possible Sasquatch in the background. Stroud and the camera crew didn’t even know the thing was there! Of course, once again we see a case where the humans at the scene saw nothing, and the Sasquatch only shows up later on the camera. This may be due to cloaking, but that’s just my theory.

I do think this is a Sasquatch because that is exactly what they look like. Not only that, but nothing else in the background is the same shade of black as that object. Most importantly, the black object has a sheen to it. Rocks, trees, stumps, and shadows don’t have a sheen, especially on a cloudy day with no sun out. But true Sasquatch videos often have sheen. This is because as I noted above, real Sasquatches have oils on their skin under their hair.

This gives them, and presumably any other living thing with such skin oils, a sheen to their coats. It’s notable that not one single proven hoax has even had sheen to it, nor have hoaxers even tried to replicate this sheen, maybe because they can’t. Obviously suits will not have sheen because they are worn over a clothed human body. There’s no skin oils for the suit to contact, and the suit’s not real hair on a real body anyway.

Survivorman Bigfoot show at the Alberta Habituation Site! There was one portion, Show 7, shot at this famous site which only I have written about. Show 7 has Parts 1 and 2. It’s labeled Nordegg, Canada. If you have been reading me, that is almost exactly where I implied that the AHS was! Stroud went out to the AHS with Todd Standing. It’s been Todd’s site for some time now ever since the weasel deceived other researchers to find out where the secret site was and then stole it from other researchers and claimed it for his own. It was here at this Nordegg site that Jeff Meldrum saw what may have been his first Sasquatch walking across a clearing in the middle of the night.

A lot of people say I am full of it, but I wrote about this site for a long time, describing approximately where it was. I also told the story about how Todd stole the site from other researchers and how it was now his site. Then Stroud goes out to Nordegg, Canada with Todd Standing, presumably to the AHS. So all of my reporting on the AHS has been vindicated as true!

I haven’t watched this episode yet, but if you want to see some real footage of the AHS, here it is!

The terrible tale of the Alberta Massacre! Some absolutely shocking news from Todd Standing. As noted above, Todd has finally had a good habituation site after all these years. The nice thing about that is that now that Todd has a nice site, he doesn’t have to hoax anymore. Why hoax when you have a great Sasquatch habituation site sitting right at your heels. Why bother? I am not sure what sort of work Todd has been able to do out there, but he did bring Survivorman out for a couple of episodes and he also brought Jeff Meldrum out. It was on this occasion that Meldrum saw what may have been his first Sasquatch.

Now the stunning word in from Standing is that most of the Sasquatches at the AHS have been killed! A source reports that Todd said recently that he was out there at the AHS one night when some military helicopters flew in with guns blazing away. They flew around for some time firing their machine guns at the forest below, and then they flew away. Todd said after that, most of the Sasquatches were gone except for one young male who had become very shy. The assumption was that somehow the Canadian military had killed a number of the Sasquatches with helicopter-mounted machine guns.

If it’s true, it’s an incredible story, up there with the Sierra Kills. First the Sierra Kills, next the Alberta Massacre! If anyone has any more information about this incident, please contact me.

I would like to say that it is my personal opinion that the militaries in North America may do this from time to time. I believe that some Sasquatches become nuisances, possibly due to excessive aggression or killing and eating people (Hello David Paulides). In these cases, I believe the military may be called out to kill the problem Sasquatch. Unfortunately, I have no evidence to prove this, and it is just a hunch on my part.

If this is occurring, it would be nice if we could gather some evidence about it. I am aware of one incident where a Sasquatch was seen in a national forest. I forget the details. Anyway, the witness said that soon after the Sasquatch was seen, a US forest service helicopter was flying low over the forest where the Sasquatch was seen firing a machine gun. The exact same scenario that Todd reports here.

Of course, Todd has a history of hoaxing going back some time now, from his stupid Tiki doll puppets to his made-up lie about “Sylvanic,” the secret valley that does not exist that he accessed through a hole in a mountain where he was attacked by Sasquatches one night around his campfire. There is even a video of this made-up incident out there that you can watch.

Well, Todd is a filmmaker and filmmakers, well, they make films! So Todd likes to make movies. And he has quite an imagination.

However, Todd gets mixed up between fiction and nonfiction and what really happened and what didn’t. This nonsense leads to lots of unnecessary confusion, and it’s borderline immoral if not worse. Blair Witch Project anyone? How about Megamouth Shark? How about fakeumentaries?

I figure there is way too much lying masquerading as truth these days as it is without throwing in all this fakeumentary garbage. What’s the point? Don’t we get lied to enough all day long in this idiotic country? As it is, if you want to be informed, you have to spend about half your day figuring which of what you got told today were lies and which were facts. It’s not easy at all to disentangle them, and it’s very annoying to say the least that we have to play Lie Detector all day long anyway. I thought this was some great “democracy?” If it’s this great democracy, then why do we get lied to all day? Huh? Riddle me that.

Anyway I doubt if Todd made this up, as he stopped hoaxing as soon as he finally got a real habituation site if not before. Now Todd had this nice comfy habituation site, one of the best in North America, with a number of Sasquatches that I was told “aren’t going anywhere.” In other words, they were not going to leave the AHS barring extreme circumstances.

So I doubt if they up and left. So if they are still there, why make up a story about them getting killed? Why not stay out there and study them? I guess you could say that they left for some other reason, so Todd made up this massacre lie. But I was told that these Sasquatches were not going anywhere for much of any reason. So they didn’t leave. But they’re not there, otherwise Todd would still be studying them. So where did they go? Well, they didn’t leave as I said. So maybe they did get killed.

Todd suffers from Boy Who Cried Wolf Syndrome like a number of other researchers. It’s a real problem when you shoot some real stuff, then you hoax, then you shoot some more real stuff. People see you hoaxing and write off everything you did. Todd’s a jerk for hoaxing in the first place, but I think this story may be true.

“Old-Fashioned Pig Farming,” by Alpha Unit

Woodlands are a pig’s natural habitat. But pigs are adaptable to just about any environment. They live on every continent (except Antarctica).

In the forests and woodlands where wild pigs live, trees and vegetation provide them with shelter and their preferred foods. They like places where they’ll have year-round access to water and moist ground for wallowing, such as swamps and marshes.

In spring they graze on grasses and clover. Throughout the year they’ll forage for berries, nuts, acorns, mushrooms, insects, and sometimes small rodents. But one thing a pig was designed to do is root. A pig’s snout allows it to navigate and interact with its environment – sort of like a cat’s whiskers.

The nasal disc of a pig’s snout, while rigid enough to be used for digging, has numerous sensory receptors. In addition to being useful as a fine and powerful tool for manipulating objects, the extensive innervation in the snout provides pigs with an extremely well-developed sense of smell.

Pigs can smell roots and tubers that are deep underground and in the wild can spend up to 75 percent of their day rooting and foraging. Some homesteaders put pigs’ rooting instinct to work for them and use pigs to “till” garden plots.

Daniel MacPhee and his wife use Guinea Hog piglets on their New England farm, but unlike some farmers, they don’t plan to eat their pigs.

Instead, the piglets are meant as an environmentally- and -budget-friendly cleanup crew of sorts, rooting around to clean out tough, tangled roots after a small flock of sheep has grazed at the couple’s farm, Blackbird Rise in Palermo [Maine].

By having the animals do the work, “we’re not buying machinery and we’re not wasting fossil fuels,” said MacPhee, 35. “They’re eating the roots and vegetable matter, processing that and putting nutrients back in the soil through manure. They’re doing all the same things a tractor does but without the environmental impact.”

The Guinea Hogs on their farm are a “heritage breed,” the name given to any of the distinct breeds that can be traced back to the period before industrial farming. Generations ago, there were hundreds of pig breeds on homesteads in Europe and the United States. But a lot of the historic breeds fell out of favor as the pork industry moved toward leaner carcasses and began large-scale confinement operations. This was in part the result of corn production.

As the larger settled farms of the Midwest began to produce excess corn, the availability and low cost of this feed attracted pig production and processing to the region. By the mid-1800s the states that produced the most corn also produced the most pigs, and production declined in the East and New England. The industry was becoming geographically centralized as well and the number of breeds of pigs began to decline. Several breeds became extinct by the early 1900s.

Pigs are for the most part no longer produced and sold by independent producers on open markets. Since the late 20th century, pig production in the United States has come to be dominated by a few large, vertically-integrated corporations that control every step along the way from the selection of breeding stock to the retailing of pork. A lot of the farmers who are still in the business are contract growers for the corporations. But there are independent pig farmers who are dedicated to bringing back the old breeds and are raising them in the traditional way, on pasture and in woodlands.

Some heritage breeds are very rare and are listed as critically endangered by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. Among heritage breeds is the very popular Berkshire pig, a black pig designated “first class”. Farmers say that Berkshires have an excellent disposition and are very friendly and curious.

The Tamworth is a golden-red pig and a direct descendant of the wild boars that roamed the forests of Staffordshire. They are considered very outdoorsy and athletic. (They make the best bacon in the United States, according to some fans.)

The Large Black retains the traits of its ancestors that lived on the pastures and woods of England in the 16th and 17th centuries. They are hardy animals that can withstand cold and heat. They are well-known as docile hogs.

The Hereford is a medium-size pig that is unique to the United States. Its name is inspired by its striking color pattern of intense red with white trim, the same as that of Hereford cattle. These pigs also have a reputation for being easy-going.

The Red Wattle is especially in danger of extinction. It is a large red hog with a fleshy wattle attached to each side of the neck. These pigs are very hardy with an especially mild temperament.

There are other heritage breeds, some of which number as low as a few hundred worldwide. Heritage pig farmers want to increase demand for their breeds, because to eat them is to preserve them, they say. There is, in fact, a growing market for heritage pork, which is more tender and tastes much better than mass-produced pork. Just looking at a cut of heritage pork you see a striking difference. It’s typically darker than pork from industrial farms, some as red as beef.

Of course, there are heritage pig farmers like the MacPhees, who just like having pigs on the farm, performing those unique tasks that pigs do.

If you’ve got children, there are heritage pig breeds they would easily get along with. Brian Wright raises heritage pigs and says that some are considered docile while others are seen as “evil, killer hogs” – in other words, very aggressive. You’ve got to do your homework before picking a breed.

The Rossi Farm in Rhode Island began breeding Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs several years ago and the pigs have become a favorite. Nicknamed Orchard Hogs, these pigs originally foraged for windfall apples and are distinguished by the black spots on their white coats.

The Rossis say Gloucestershire Old Spots are extremely friendly and laid-back. When the pigs are in the pasture, the children are often out there with them. And the pigs love having their ears scratched by the kids.

Moral Panics: Police Shootings, Race Riots, and Muslim Terrorism

Tulio sums it all up so perfectly. These are just vicious circles that endlessly feed back and loop into each other like a dog chasing its tail. One wonders what the solution is. Provocation, revenge attacks, revenge attacks for the revenge attacks, jumpy cops, belligerent suspects, and worst of all, increasingly frightened and angry people looking for more revenge, paybacks and pre-emptive reactions, it just goes on and on.

Hatfields and McCoys.

Tulio: The Black man shot in Milwaukee was shot by a Black cop. Which makes this race rioting all the more bizarre.

This has all been stirred up by the media. When the media focuses on something and starts a narrative, it can lead to a moral panic. Many Black folks, even ones that have never had any violent encounter with the cops, think they are currently under siege. Even if the statistics show that an innocent Black man being killed by cops is more rare than being struck by lightning. Or that 95% of Blacks die at the hand of other Blacks. It doesn’t matter. The news shows it over and over, and it whips them into a frenzy that feeds of itself.

And then people overreact, and there are race riots and retaliatory cop killings. And then race relations began a downward spiral. Whites turn on the news and see Blacks tearing stuff up, setting buildings on fire and shooting cops, which makes them more racist. Then Blacks see Whites becoming more racist and say, “See that, they hate us! Just like we said all along!” Cops who now have to deal the possibility of being shot on the job may be even more inclined to have hair-trigger responses with Blacks, which then feeds into the notion that cops are out to get Blacks, and then you just have one big clusterfuck spiraling out of control.

While I’m not a racist or a racial separatist, the separatists do make good points. If we didn’t share the same nation, we wouldn’t have to worry about intractable race problems. Or the differences in behaviors and perceptions that cause race problems. Dividing up the country into racial territories is never going to happen, but I see why some people would be in favor of it as a solution to race problems, and it makes completely sense in a lot of ways.

Peace in a multiracial society can be fragile. Everything can be humming along fine, and all it takes is for someone to get shot by a cop, and all Hell lets loose, and you see that this pent-up resentment was there all along under the shallow skin of a “post-racial” nation (yeah right).

Also, Whites are capable of this moral panic as well. In their case, swap cops for Muslim terrorists. Even though the statistical likelihood of being killed by a Muslim terrorist on any given day is probably even less likely than being innocently murdered by a cop, Americans think they are constantly under siege from terrorists and that terrorism is more prevalent than it actually is in reality. We have a presidential candidate that doesn’t even want Muslims stepping foot on US soil, and a large of America that agrees with him. Even though we’re orders of magnitude more likely to be killed by a homegrown mass shooter.

So to whites, there’s a terrorist hiding behind every tree ready to kill you. To Blacks, the nation is full of racist cops that want to shoot you dead over a broken taillight. And it’s not that there aren’t terrorists, or that there aren’t cops with an itchy trigger finger and racial biases. It’s that these scenarios are wildly exaggerated by the media, and 99.9% of the Muslims living in America aren’t bothering anyone. And 99.9% of cops will never shoot an unarmed man that isn’t threatening anyone. But the news will keep harping on the .01% exceptions and brainwash people into thinking it’s the norm by running a narrative. And most people are too dumbed down and gullible to question it.
