Aside from this horrible pandemic racing across the country, there has been this posting of a series of pictures across the internet by a man claiming to be “Scott Yeoman” from Bailey, Colorado of a Sasquatch peeking through his living room window.

Two of the series of pictures

The pictures themselves have only to my knowledge been provided via social media, and according to Yeoman are pictures of a computer screen of an alleged video source shot on August 24th, 2017. However despite in mid March this year posting the pictures in Facebook groups the pictures, nor any content appeared on his Facebook page for 2017.

As I have stated in the past a piece of evidence is only as good as the story behind it and Yeoman provided one on the Facebook Group he posted the pictures to:

“Ok so here’s the story with my photos… So, we (my wife and I) bought 11 acres of land in Bailey Colorado we built a foundation of cinder block that is 3’6" above the ground. The land is mostly hard pack dirt and large rock which I shared a video of when we bought it. After we moved a modular home there, we lived off and on there for 2 years while we got it ready for permanent residency.

In August of 2017 we were finishing the interior of the back of the house and I came into the living room and caught a whiff of a VERY harsh odor in the room. It smelled like rotting animal flesh, vomit, and excrement. I caught glimpse of something moving outside the window from the corner of my eye. We have had bears visit pretty regular but the tried to get under the house, not in it. But when I see the figure by the window, I thought a bear had somehow climes up to the window.

I take a lot of wildlife pictures because they literally come up to the outside of it like mule deer, Elk, Bear, haven’t seen any mountain lion, and other small game. I have quite a few feral cars all over my property, but they aren’t mine. But they hang out a lot. Anyway… I saw the top of the head and that caught my attention. It moved closer and I see it eyes were freaking huge and it scared me because bear eyes aren’t that large or far apart. I always have a camera handy to get a good shot of the elk that come extremely close to the house. When I realized it wasn’t a bear?

Fear struck me hardcore. I used a cheap kodak sport digital camera for taking pics and for the most part it takes fast action pictures/ video. It was on the end table next to my recliner approximately 6 ft. from the window. When I pointed it at the window it stopped swaying and closed it eyes as if it was child… "You can’t see me if my eyes are closed".

So, shaking and trying to video at the same time I moved back a step and it slowly moved from one side of the window to the other. It was seriously about a 10 min video, but it was on a 1" x 1 1/2" and card which had to be downloaded on my computer. It didn’t make any attempt to enter the house or run away.

About 8 minutes in my wife came into the room and asked me what I was doing. I told her there’s something outside and it ain’t no bear. When she looked over my shoulder she screamed "what is that thing!" And ran back to the bedroom. I stopped the video, went to the closet and grabbed my 40 caliber off the closet shelf. When I turned back around, it was moving away from the window. I wasn’t going to shoot at it if it tried to get in which it didn’t do. I went to my wife who was freaking out and tried to answer her bombardment of questions and after reassuring her that everything was ok.

She called the sheriff’s department and the sent 3 deputies to check out the property. Their conclusion was most like a bear or other wildlife. Until I showed them the playback. When they reviewed it two of the three were impressed and the third was like it’s a bear.

Anyway, the rest of the night was uneventful and peaceful other than my panicking wife. She ended up having my daughter and her husband come get her and took her to Golden for a couple of days. I downloaded this video on my computer at my mother’s house because she has internet access and I didn’t. Long story short my mother’s house burnt down on a fire we had out here last year.

We have seen it at a distance every now and then in the darkness by the fire light, not the body, but eye shine. And that’s pretty creepy too. But haven’t had any incidents of a destructive nature so I decided to just be cautious when I’m walking my property. I do carry my .40 cal always outside… Just in case. But haven’t had to pull it from my holster. I see signs where he’s broke branches on trees that I can’t reach on a 6′ ladder. And occasionally he’ll move things around. Most signs we see were always after we left and came back home. There’s the story behind the photos…. I hope people can find something in here to benefit them if they are dealing with one too.”

Originally I was going to point out what is behaviorally wrong with the story such as why didn’t he let his wife know what is going on from minute one? But developments in the research lead to more definitive things.

In trying to verify where Mr. Yeoman lives to properly verify via FOIL the proper sheriff’s department for their report as Mr. Yeoman claims some things came to light which not only proved the story to be false, but also a community alert.


Debunking Yeoman

1. “So, we (my wife and I) bought 11 acres of land in Bailey Colorado…”

This is where the search began. And in actuality Mr. Yeoman did not purchase any land in Bailey, CO. more matter to the fact he lives in Golden, CO in this neighborhood. In fact we learned that “Scott Yeoman” is in actuality, Jonathan Scott Yeoman born in 1966.

residence

2. About 8 minutes in my wife came into the room and asked me what I was doing”

Mr. Yeoman’s wife passed away in 2012. She was born in Kokomo, IN on September 10, 1961.  Born, Angela Ann Croddy in Kokomo, IN. Her place of death was Lasalle, CO on December 18, 2012.

Who has ties to Kokomo, IN, Mr. Yeoman’s real name, Jonathan Scott Yeoman.

fb post 2018 III

Mind you this is well after his alleged Bigfoot “Peeper”.

fb post 2018 II

In fact there are memorials to his wife on his Facebook profile.

I am saddened that Yeoman would have to experience a premature death of his spouse, but since he brought his wife into it… we have to mention it. On her memorial Facebook page it appears any photo reference to Yeoman has been removed including a crop of her in a wedding dress.

We also know from his Facebook profile he was seeing a woman in Kokomo, IN as late as 2018 as well.

3. “I stopped the video, went to the closet and grabbed my 40 caliber off the closet shelf…”

According to Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S) 8-12-108 a felon cannot possess a weapon. This would include any type of gun or crossbow for hunting or any other purpose.

That’s right, Mr. Yeoman is a felon. Arrested in 1992 for CHILD MOLESTATION in Howard County, Indiana. Kokomo, IN is in Howard County.

From the Indiana DOC website.

Yeoman was giving one day shy of 6 years and was released early on September 30th, 1994 after serving 2.5 years.

Yeoman had another encounter with the law, for harassment on November 22nd, 2008 in Jefferson County, Colorado. (Golden, CO is in Jefferson County.)


Summation

This is not a debunking based on Yeoman’s character. It is based on his story behind the pictures which turned out to be lies. If you lie on a story of about how something came about, what does that mean?

“A piece of evidence is only good as the story behind it.” – Steve Kulls

Clearly there is a precedent here with disclosing a bit more personal information than on some hoaxes. That is because hoaxes end results are usually harmless or financially motivated. We have a sex offender who preys upon children, so I have to drive home the point. When a person who preys upon children, (And I don’t care how long ago) begins to show clear signs of dishonesty it should make us question why. And in this case I am too scared to speculate, as he is making allusions to Bigfoot being on his property regularly.

The community needs to boot this guy starting yesterday!!!!

Hoax-Spotting

Get your reading glasses out folks!!!

Something I study is criminology and psychology behind crimes. In this, I have observed a number of hoaxing characteristics and psychology behind them are very similar. Hoaxing is not necessarily a crime but the reason why it shares many common traits with certain criminal activities is that it relies heavily upon deception, concealment, misdirection and the air of trying to get away with something.

A great article came out a few years ago, “5 telltale signs of an online hoax”.

The article has some “real world” examples which I will provide if you wish in the future involving the Bigfoot Community. However, I would like to go into some detail on those points covered in the article.

1. Timelines don’t add up

“People perpetrating a hoax often have to construct a backstory in order to build credibility. This may involve creating a history for a company, person, or other entity. The farther back they go to establish credibility, the more likely they are to make mistakes.”

That is provided you are given a timeline. Many hoaxes lack a timeline which in of itself is dubious. I always say, “A picture, video and audio is only as good as the story behind it.


2. Names and people are problematic

“The names and people cited in hoaxes often have gaps in their history, and offer a very thin profile. This is because most of the time they simply don’t exist.”

The lack of any source material, lack of names and places aside from scene preservation should be suspect.


3. It appeals to a specific group or ideology or is too perfect

“Humans love to hear things that we already believe. It is immensely comforting for us to be told information that conforms to our existing beliefs and knowledge.”

As I have stated previously, there is always a target group. Whether it be particular organization or the community as a whole.


4. It has the trappings of authenticity

“A hoax has to find ways to convey a sense of credibility. Fake news articles often cite other media reports to back up their claims, but they will not link to these (non-existent) articles or they’ll simply inset links that go to the homepage of the website they mention. "

The term “con” is an abbreviated slang for confidence. Always remember that. A person’s charm, sincerity should be discounted in these situations because to sell a story, you have to be a salesman (or woman). 


5. It falls apart when you focus on the details

“Click all of the links, Google all of the names, reverse image search all of the images, run a Whois on the domains mentioned. This is how you’ll find the loose thread that untangles the whole thing. Every piece of information offered is a detail to be examined. Something that reads as real will quickly fall apart in the face of a few clicks and searches.”

Con-artists rely on our natural human nature to be trusting and on laziness to count on you taking their word, rather than doing your homework.


Motive

Now I would like to move on to motive. For every audience targeted there is a motivation behind the hoax. As the internet progressed it is difficult sometimes to get to the real motivation.

Let’s look at some of the motivational factors for hoaxing (From the Squatch-D Hall of Shame):

The Psychologically Needy Hoaxer 

  One who hoaxes due to a recent psychological event in their life such as divorce, being widowed, or general loneliness and do it for company and or attention. They need to feel special or have special abilities to a particular class of people and have to fell superior within that class. These are the folks we see constantly on Facebook live espousing their special abilities to communicate,  detect or otherwise be “in the know.” This type of hoaxing overtook the field over the Prankster or Jokester with the advent of Facebook live and YouTube. Often when facing critics they use the term “jealousy,” often because it questions their superiority.

    -Subclass:  The Unintentional Hoaxer 

 One who has a legitimate sighting and due to psychological effect of the sighting, every bump in the night becomes a Bigfoot. Often confused with misidentification, however differs due to frequency of misidentifications by the subject. The reason why this is a sub-class because it’s root cause is a psychological effect of a sighting on them.


The Prankster or Jokester

One who hoaxes for humor and enjoyment. There is a psychological need , however in some instances. While there is obvious parody, which should not be misconstrued as hoaxing, the person, as a prank, tries to hoax,  is trying to belittle others in some manner either privately or publicly. The hoaxer at times wants to feel superiority over a particular group. It should be noted that some parody can be utilized for the same purpose. This motivation can be muddled at this point, due to monetization of YouTube Channels however. But the main motivation is usually the former.


 The Profiteer

One who hoaxes in an attempt to garner financial gain either directly or indirectly. These are the folks which associate most with criminal traits. Narcissism, sociopathic tendencies among others can be at play. Remember a person who hoaxes for profit, is the same type of personality which others take with more defined “shortcuts” in life. They often espouse their position with overconfidence and power plays.


Hoaxing will always continue to plague the community. The more aware we are of how to research and understand some of the psychological factors and behaviors associated with hoaxing, the quicker we can put the garbage to the back of the line and focus on more genuine material being presented.

Well we thought this was pretty well quashed in 2017, when the duo behind the Sasquatch Ontario hoax had a falling out. Darryl posted on the internet a number of items outing his former partner Mike Paterson in some cases with overwhelming detail by providing evidence that the whole thing was a hoax.

 

SasOnt6

Of course it would appear that the two have patched things up and are moving forward again in the hoax. The motivations behind this were always clear with Paterson’s GoFund Me pages and now the creation of a website with a convenient “Donation” button.

nope

In actuality you are “donating” to an individual. Sasquatch Ontario is not listed on Canada’s Not- for-profit list. (https://www.amcnposolutions.com/directory-of-canadian-not-for-profit-associations/ontario-n-to-z/).

I mean that’s okay, it you’re legit, but there has been so much shade thrown at this hoax I know there’s a prince somewhere in Nigeria, willing to give you at least six figures if you put up a small amount of money via Money Gram.

419_help

The biggest piece of evidence aside from Strumm outing the “Nephratia” voice was him outing the “Sasquatch Eye” picture circulated by Paterson. Anyone with common sense could have seen that the eye was that of a fish. Strumm confirmed this by providing a picture of the fish that was used in the creation of that particular hoax, conveniently mounted on the cabin where all of this alleged malarkey was occurring.

SasOnt5

Much, much more evidence can be found in the Hall of Shame at Squatchdetective.com.

What exactly has social media done to hoaxing you might ask, even when they are caught with their pants down? No matter how many times they are proven to be liars, frauds and charlatans, all they do is deny it, ignore it or have their minions attack.

Mr. Paterson is exactly one of those folks, as is a number of others such as LNP, Standing and their ilk. A few on the Hall of Shame, moved on and rightfully so after being exposed. But these guys preys upon new people and their ignorance of the history of the topic.

Paterson has engaged in attacking anyone on YouTube, using the Fair Use Doctrine to intimidate people and remove their videos. This of course is to make critical attack difficult over an ultra-cautious platform like YouTube.

There is no defense from Paterson, only intimidation, threats and insults. Well people know me all too well to let a hoaxer bully me. That’s because I play by the rules, but still manage to get my message out.

The only strength of his argument is to make the evidence of his hoax disappear. No rebuttal because there is not scientific or investigative methodologies behind his processes. (The lighter measuring the “track” is a great example. (Maybe someone should donate to him, a measuring tape via PayPal.)

Clearly shown in Guy Edward’s Stages of a Bigfoot Hoax:

Number 2: Defensiveness or Attack of Critics

As far a Strumm being back with him, sorry the cat was let out of the bag, with some very nice examples provided. It cannot be undone.

There will be much more on Squatch-D TV in the near future!  See copyright does not apply when you become so much a public figure like he has become via his website, YouTube and Vimeo channels. When you only use snippets of a particular work for the purpose of commentary and education copyright is out the window. So any copyright challenge will be appealed and when he loses the bully will have his own YouTube account in jeopardy for a false claim which will be pursued.

See it is all in the delivery. This will not be a personal attack on the person (s) involved.  It’s all about the facts!

On that note, sorry for some of the Technical issues lately on Squatch-D TV. We have the sound issue fixed and finally are broadcasting again to Twitter, Twitch and the websites.

We will see you this Sunday at 9PM Eastern on Squatch-D TV!

A recent analysis of what has become known as the “NY Baby Video”  was done by Darren Lee, Director of the Mid-America Bigfoot Center (MABRC).

Now in this analysis Darren did work on a few misconceptions and I do admire Darren’s efforts in the field and consider him a friend.

In  February 2008 I was on “The Creature Chronicles” on WNYT Channel 13 out of Albany, where I am on record of saying, “we at least have something here on video that is not human.”

For sure whatever it was (because we shall never know with 100% certainty, is not a normal resident of New York State.

Know let me address Darren’s misguidance on what he perceived was “confirmation bias”

For those who know me, I am a real…well “prick” when it comes to evidence. Now please do not quote me on exact dates of the investigation, but even where the initial report showed up, it was incorrectly placed as well.

It was late 2003 when I saw a report out of Ulster County pertaining to a film. The initial investigator (not the follow up) was by Paul Kutscera. He blew the film off without even seeing it. (Now there is bias right there.)

I asked if I could reach out and see what the guy has and was extremely skeptical. When I observed the film I knew what I was seeing was not at all human, let alone a flag on an antenna (one other theory floating on the internet).

I was the only investigator. ONLY. For the folks that know me “confirmation bias” is not in my nature.

Even in the screenshot of my report for the BFRO you see what is around the word, “baby”.

cb

Now I will address some of the points in Darren’s write up…

Previous claims that the area has a history of encounters and activity have to be severely questioned with only 3 reported Class "A" encounters stretching from 1983 to 2004. 

I hate to say it, but the BFRO does not get the lion share of Bigfoot reports in New York and is not the only game in town.

modena map

I had personally in the same time frame investigated 3 sightings from Greene County (Which includes the Catskill Mountains) immediately to the north, and have heard of several in Orange County (Base of the Appalachin Trail) which an old research partner of mine was investigating. Historically, there was a late 1800’s account in Margaretville, NY which is almost dead center in the map above. These reports consisted of actual sightings of the creature, not track finds, audibles or the ilk.

The BFRO database as well, has been scrubbed of some older reports, because at the time there were way more than just one report for Orange County or Columbia County. Now I am not entirely sure of what was edited in the BFRO report, either added or removed over the years.

Which brings me to the point of Darren not knowing the Bigfoot history of the area. For example, the 1980’s “Kinderhook Creature” flap. Kinderhook is a community in Columbia County.

Sightings occurred on December 1978, 12/5/1979, April 1980, 9/24/1980, 2 in November 1980, April 1981, 5/8/1981, June 1981, November 1981, May 1982, July 1982, On the border of Columbia County –August 1984,  January1990. Seems pretty “rich” to me and considering the time frame 2003… they were a lot more recent than they are today.

The drop off in some volume of sightings in those areas of course could be due to urban sprawl.

What I do know is the area of the video upon visiting the site in 2012, was ripe with apple trees, (there was an orchard in the background) and wild berries of all sorts and colors.

Darren provided a satellite photo of the area in 1995 and went on to state:

The forest around this area is fairly sparse, with large open tracts of farmland and orchards with quite a few houses and other buildings spread throughout the area.  Not an ideal place for a female Bigfoot to raise a young one with all the human activity and habitat in the area.  The land where this event occurred was also a working orchard, among other commercial ventures that the landowners were involved in.

Here is a workup of where the sighting had occurred using Darren’s satellite photo.

Satellite

What Darren states is he believes that the premise is a baby being raised in the area. That’s quite an assumption. No where does it say one was being raised there. If you follow primate behavior models quite the opposite. It’s behavior was of a primate just passing through. No Sasquatch would call that area a territory. But as with all primates, they are opportunists.

Below is some of the closest sighting reports in Whitehall, NY. In the 70’s one was actually seen disturbing garbage cans in a more rural part of the town. Whitehall has not much changed in urban sprawl at all since the 70’s. In fact I have seem some urban shrinkage over the years. whitehall

Darren believes it’s grasping the tree trunk with it’s feet. Well given the quality of the video, the distance to the subject and it’s relation to sunlight, how in the world can you say it is “grasping” with it’s feet. Even humans use their feet to stabilize when climbing.

What is known is in the video the little one, “Unsub #1” climbs hand over hand into the tree.

Hand over hand

It is not uncommon for baby gorillas to take to the trees as they are nimble enough, and primates go through an exploratory stage with their hands and feet. Often we see human infants using their feet to hold things. And that’s also why in human culture, we have something called “monkey bars.”

 imagesbaby gorilla in tree'

In the second picture, the baby gorilla is not using his feet to grab the tree, he is merely using his feet for support.

depositphotos_125689516-stock-video-an-adult-male-hand-holding

Darren surmises that what we are looking at is a Gibbon owned privately and in New York illegally.

As Steve Kulls has pointed out, New York state has laws constricting private ownership of most exotic animals, including chimpanzees.  However, as with most laws, there are lots of people out there who violate those laws and this can be confirmed to be the case in New York simply by searching Google for the news stories of people being caught with animals. 

But what Darren failed to mention was, and I confirmed this with Mike Lembo, the owner of the property and event organizer at the time was, they were searching at the gate for animals and would not let anyone in because they were not insured for it.  Now we expect someone with a gibbon not to cause a commotion and keep it hidden during the entire event for the weekend? And common sense says you wouldn’t let your pet gibbon up into a tree unleashed would you?

Next we come to the behavior of what Darren believes to be the handler. “Unsub #2” in the video, seen walking from the right to the left, where Unsub #1 appears to leap off of into the tree. The behavior and characteristics of Unsub #2 are completely ignored in Darren’s analysis, an not to offend Darren, but he seemed to be predisposed to what it was and shows his own bias by omitting any commentary on Unsub #2’s behavior.

First, Unsub #2 is uniformly colored. One would expect that with the backlighting. However when it enters out of the area of the backlight, it almost becomes invisible, head to toe.

Next is the behavior. If your pet monkey jumps in a tree without a leash, you would expect that person to “about face” immediately and there would be some sort of commotion. There was no such commotion as when the videographer was interviewed, his party did not hear, see or notice anything. Common sense would have told you that there would have been a fuss, or a flashlight. But there was not.

Furthermore it does not explain why Unsub #2 continues it travel path for a while and then after some distance turns around and walks toward the tree Unsub #1 is and out of sight somewhere behind the tree. This is not consistent with someone who has snuck an illegal pet into a venue they are not supposed to have one.

2 -Jump Sequence

Distance before turn

Last point

As I have stated in the past, investigations and analysis run by Bigfoot Researchers seem often to be two dimensional. We are presented with a film or a photograph and we run with that alone. We forget to look at behaviors and testimony of eyewitnesses. To me in my opinion, that can suffice for about 75% of what we get, because it is so blatantly obvious. But in certain circumstances, we must look at behavior, motive as well. 

When I first got this video to investigate I had to rule out Motive #1; a hoax. First, given the time that had passed since the video was taken, over five years, I found it unlikely.

Second, Doug Pridgen never noticed Unsub #2 nor any of his party noticed any commotion of any sort.

Third, the people staying in the visible tent in the video, had asked Doug and his party to keep an eye out as they went to the festival across the lake. In the video our back is to the access to the area where Doug and company were staying. The did not return until well after the video was taken.

So do we now have a prowler with a pet monkey?

Next I contacted the property owner to confirm about the “no pet” rule and it was confirmed.

Then came the search for any escaped lab, zoo or circus animals in the area; Bupkis.

Mind you, I was looking for an out, for an explanation, and the norm, if you can call it that just did not seem logical.

I even let the case marinate for a few months, to cross my T’s and reevaluate, reevaluate and reevaluate.

To me the possibility of a Sasquatch with it’s young visiting a nutrient rich area at dark, especially when we have known them to do this in the past seemed more logical than a guy prowling around someone else’s tent after illegally bring in a pet primate into NY, and sneaking a type of primate that is usually cantankerous past people searching for such cantankerous things at the gate, the only egress to the area, and then allowing such illegal and not allowed primate to frolic in a tree unharnessed.

At least that’s the way I see it.

Is it proof, or is it evidence? No, the dang video just isn’t good enough, given the fact we are still debating it after 22 and a half years.

At least that’s the way I see it.

Thanks Darren however, you at least are in the camp that this is a biological and I thing it puts to rest that this is something on the end of a car’s antenna! On the rest we have to agree to disagree.

And of course it is more of an interesting debate than most possible Sasquatch videos out there.

Till Next Time

Squatch-D

Hey folks, sorry to take some time off. The year started off quite challenging as my almost six year relationship came to an end. Inevitably a period of self-evaluation ensues.

I also took that time to get myself in better shape and a better mindset. All is good, and I am back with a vengeance!!!


#StopTheWoonacy

In case some didn’t know a couple of huge things happened this past month. First up is the #StopTheWoonacy.

67108562_10157548998720979_5793114165870592000_n

The Stop the Woonacy movement was inspired by my frustration in both the “Woo” (or what people profess to be the supernatural Sasquatch), the common posting of constant contact with “Sasquatch People,” “Forest Friends,” stick structures, tree bends, “BlobSquatchery,” Hoaxes, and people professing to be on the side of science while making factual statements that are obviously complete horseshit.

The movement, campaign or whatever you would like to call it is not to nullify people who claim to have a single, or even a few supernatural experiences with what may or may not be a Sasquatch, but the people who form cults around them professing to have the secret knowledge or special powers to communicate, draw out, have conversations either in person or in their dreams with a Sasquatch and state that as the gospel. These folks are on Social Media ever day with this non-sense.

Someone has to stand up to it and be the voice of reason and point out the ridiculousness of their actions and stories.

Take for example this gem of the “uncloaked” Bigfoot head in this picture the submitter claims, as the Sasquatch have the “ability” to only partially materialize. (Yeah, I kid you not…this is what was said!)

5 - Pareidellia

It is obvious that what we are seeing here is pareidolia. I too used the same effect to see what I believed was in the picture just above the “Sasquatch’s” head.

 

7- Pareidellia

It’s Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy!!!

I would also like to point out…why is this picture in black and white??? My guess is the head is actually the same color as the foliage as well. Posting this in a photoshopped format (to remove color) and making the claims the submitter does, seems a bit disingenuous.


The Re-Birth of Squatch-D TV

The real big change was the move from Squatchdetective Radio to Squatch-D TV as we finally have found a platform that serves what we have wanted all along.

Several years back we tried Squatch-D TV with the now defunct Paranormal TV Network lineup. We had to use an outside producer who would broadcast remotely and after several months the network eventually shut down because the president of the company wanted to be a grandmother and passed the channel off to someone who was not at all committed to the network.

On this new platform we have just about complete control. No fancy software, no remote producer and is all web based. Not only do we broadcast on multiple platforms, we are able to “screen share” providing video, pictures, audio, live time looks at websites and Power Point presentations.

The only loss, currently, out of the new system is the inability to take callers which in the past has proved to be problematic, as the call screening with BTR was a it clumsy. The cool thing is that for our Facebook and YouTube viewers, the comments come across as a chat on our control panel. And we have the ability to share those comments and questions live on the air with the click of a button!

Not having to register for a BTR account to talk in the chat (comments) is really one advantage we have gained and the conversations have been marvelous since airing our fifth show last night.


Who is Jan Klement?

This mystery has nipped at me for several years and about a year and half ago, I dug into the mystery of the book, “The Creature". First published in 1976, recounts most likely the first Bigfoot “habituation” culminating in the death and burial of a Bigfoot called “Kong.”

Now buried in the story-line are a couple of far fetched tales of Kong’s escapades that really should make the reader scratch their head.

Now digging into the mystery I did not only find out the location of the cabin noted in the book along with the potential burial site, but clues within the book and the subsequent volume updates, led me directly to exactly who Jan Klement was and the biggest question; Was the story true?

Unfortunately, I won’t post the spoilers here because one should see how we came to those results and walked through the investigation on the latest edition of Squatch-D TV (August 18, 2019: Bigfoot Cold Case).
