Once again I pop over to the site where EVERYTHING has been just about disputed, Bigfoot Ballyhoo. I hadn’t been there in some time because the blog author, Linda Newton-Perry stated she was hanging it up.

But as we have repeatedly shown, some tend to come back…and here she is again. Again sticking by all these stories proven to be made up on her “blog.”

For the site’s brief history, you can read about it here.

Linda Newton-Perry again in her penchant for putting “alleged” (and by alleged I mean phony) Bigfoot stories on her blog to support the Bigfoot mystery again falls short.

In the latest, she is still supporting the PROVEN phony Bill Emery by supplying us with this gem on her site. This gem appeared last October.

Screen Caps of LNP story “submitted” to her.

 

Here’s the text of this so called encounter,

 

Jerry Lustin has left a new comment on your post "Bill Emery comments on 1962 Bones":

Hello, I’m Jerry Lustin and was among the guys who found the giant creature in November of 1962. Bill emery has asked me to write a short comment on this site. I have never wrote anything in my life so bare with me.

It was in the early hours of November 9th when me and several other men were working the Dew Ridge area clearing wind falls from the roads in the area. If memory serves me it was 8:30 am or so when we saw what we thought to be a dead bear under a big old growth tree on Dew. As we approached the bear it became plain to us that it was not a bear.
The animal was something in between ape and human in looks only larger than any thing I’ve seen ever before or since. The animal was laying under the tree face down and dead. We all looked at it and to our surprise this animal had hands and feet not paws. It was covered in a short crop of black hair and obviously not anything ever seen by us before.

We needed a forest service foreman to come to the site right away to look at it because, we were not to remove any fatalities from wind storm damage trees without forest service being on site. We had well understood protocol to go through in case we came across a car with people in it under a tree. Ranger Guy Adams from Cave Junction arrived and took photos from both sides of the tree. Then more people came up to do the same. As the site filled with forest service and unknown people we were directed to cut a 10 section out above the creature for removal.

It was after we removed the tree off the animal that they got branch poles out and turned the animal over onto its back. The animal’s eyes ware open and dried blood was all over the mouth and ears of the animal. The eyes were black in color. Teeth were jagged and yellowish. It had breasts on it like a female only dropped and small in shape. It was female of course. Everybody was told to stay away from the animal at this point. By noon a truck had showed up and they used block and tackle to pick the animal up and swing it into the back of the flatbed.

At that point the big wig from Medford came and they told us to leave that road and go to Glary Creek some 5 mile away to work for the rest of the week. They started acting like squirrels to many of us, nervous and snappy. It was three days later when Guy told us that animal was a ape escaped from a home in O’Brien. We knew it was bull, because who keeps a 8 ft ape for a pet. We knew when we uncovered the animal, it wasn’t no ape. We didn’t know about bigfoot then but thought it was some kind of wild man-gal.

For some time after many stories came out on the animal as to what it was. My brother- in- law took 3 pictures of it and I hope to give copies to Emery if Stan can locate them.

Once again LNP has this picture which raised a flag to me knowing her modus operandi in the past to have photo’s mislabeled, misidentified to make the reader believe they are something they are not.

With the real people identified in the picture, we learned that the picture had been placed on PBase at the latest on July 14th, 2006 and we know Buzzy’s Greenwater Café closed in 2008. (Source: Small Towns Newspaper Service)

In fact here’s a picture of Buzzy circa 2008…

But here’s where the fun begins. We go back to LNP’s researcher that started it all, “Dale Saxton.”

I took a look at the rest of the thumbnails and BANG… there’s “Dale Saxton” the logger who was the inspiration of the “ESP Team.” We also found another picture of Buzzy Franklin.

Fisherman

 

But the person pictured is not a logger like Ballyhoo and LNP had claimed, but a fisherman running salmon charters.  This picture was uploaded to PBase on July 14th, 2006, long before Ballyhoo was even a thought and can be found here.

LNP likes to use an article title of “It’s a matter of time.” You’re right Linda!!!

It’s a matter of time before we find the now changed pictures of the ESP Team, since we exposed the last set. And a matter of time before we find “Cole’s” pictures too!!!

Ballyhoo calls it quits??? (At least for now)

I think over the years we’ve proven here that LNP and her Bigfoot Ballyhoo blog, was more like Baloneyhoo.

Well a few of weeks ago, Linda claimed to have thrown in the towel.

 

Quit

 

The sad fact is that Perry had a real bad effect on some folks. Check out this sympathetic post for Linda’s cause.

A sad thing in the BF world, Linda Newton Perry has thrown in the towel.
After years of name calling, accusations and hurtfulness she has quit.

To know her is to know she was honest to a fault, naive-yes, innocent as a dove. Her fault lied in the fact she openly allowed anyone to come into her site and write their story. I know her, count her as a friend. I always tried to explain her personality to others as the Grandma of Bigfoot sites; kindly, funny, open and vulnerable.

                                                                                           Internet Post February 15th, 2016

 

The sad fact is, she WASN’T honest at all. First, when this all started, I tried to inform her she was being hoaxed. Nope she insisted she wasn’t.

1168821

 

She said if the ESP Team, the team that released a hoaxed picture in 2010, was proven to be a falsehood she would shut Ballyhoo down.

Well it wasn’t long after, not only did we prove the pictures false, but an entire series of pictures proved that the entire ESP team to be a falsity. Of course Linda insisted they were real.

Not only did we reverse search pictures finding stories on her site to be consistently false in the same manner, but we actually had located the REAL people she was using as Bill Emery and Hank Parchell of the ESP Team. 

Even despite that, she insisted she was right and we were wrong. Insisted we were the ones lying. And she was not at all nice about it. I mean WE by the way, as there were several of us working together to track down the real folks.

She is not as naïve as people think.

First, she’s a retired Real Estate Broker. Second she writes and supposedly owned a newspaper, or so she claims and is an author.  

All of the shenanigans that the site was responsible for can be seen here.

As for her defenders, they are either Linda using sock accounts, or people who should check their own “naivety.”

But for one second, lets suppose we’re in an alternate universe and she was fooled. A reporter that has such a bad track record of being duped for so long, and so often, would have been fired.

There was so many falsities on her blog, that it is a service to the public that it no longer propagates more falsities.

But isn’t there another well known  hoaxer on the west coast that now calls himself quite comically “The Godfather of Bigfoot,” that is constantly being “duped,” as he claims.

Seems to be a common thread amongst some hoaxers. When they are caught…they’re “duped.”

We’d like to wish Linda best of luck in her future endeavors.

Just as Linda has stated she is going to keep Ballyhoo up for archival sake, we as well are keeping the Hall of Shame page dedicated to Ballyhoo up as well for archival sake.

This may be just the last time we have to mention her.

Somehow I doubt it.


Strange, Rare and Unusual Sightings Weekend

Another great weekend and thanks goes out to our gracious hosts in Triadelphia, West Virginia for their venue and hospitality. Speaking  at the engament was a gentleman by the name of Dr. Bruce Kiray DC aka “Dr. Squatch” (who claims to be the #1 Bigfoot Researcher on his YouTube Site) who was grilled by a couple of audience members. Also speaking besides myself was Sasquatch Watch of Virginia’s Billy Willard, Southeastern Ohio Society for Bigfoot Investigation’s Doug Waller, Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society’s Dave Dragosin and Dr. Jeff Meldrum, PhD.

Flaw found with Facebook Picture analysis…

Time to print a retraction. Apparently we have learned that Facebook is messing with the metadata on digital pictures. On February 13th, 2016 we ran with a blog debunking a claim and a photo based on six separate factors.

1. When pressed for details to date and time the submitter of the story refused to be specific.

2. The submitter blocked people asking for an original picture.

3. The submitter lied about the number of cell towers,

4. The submitter lied about how the picture was captured.

5. The submitter lied about government response.

6. The metadata did not correspond to the timeline.

Well we always give the truth here, and it looks like all photos from Facebook are being stamped with the same “Profile Date Time.”

Therefore we have to exclude the metadata as a reason for debunking the picture.

When we ran the test on the metadata we used two different sources, so the issue is with Facebook itself and how it alters uploaded photos. Thanks Michele for the heads up!!!

Lesson learned and posted here so others can be aware.  

Remember if a person posting a photo anywhere doesn’t want to send you an original copy via email there is a problem.

If they do and the metadata is missing, there is a problem.

If there story changes (other than slight perceptions of distance, measurements and time) there is a problem.

So it still stands that a picture is only as good as the story behind it. This does not change our summation about the photo whatsoever. Since the report, no one to my knowledge has received the original photo via email, nor has the submitter coughed up a specific date or time.

Ruling: Still a Hoax.

 

More stuff soon to come and getting closer to radio time!!!

 

Till Next Time,

Squatch-D

In the past…

Okay gang, we’ve been working here very hard to dispel hoaxes and separate fact from fiction…

Some of the things in the past we’ve dispelled some myths that have hit television:

  • In the 1990’s A&E Ancient Mysteries documentary on Bigfoot, (hosted by the late and legendary Leonard Nimoy), longtime and respected (by myself included) Bigfoot researcher Henry Franzoni stated that “Ape Canyon,” was named after the 1924 Fred Beck incident, in which a group of hunters had rocks and boulders thrown upon their hunting cabin, resulting to Beck allegedly killing one of the creatures. In truth, “Ape Canyon,” was named after the “St. Helen’s Apes,” a youth collective (similar to the Boy Scouts) which used to explore, hike and frolic upon this canyon and discovered Ape Cave in the 1950’s, later named after their collective which had been organized in the 1880’s.
  • “Let’s get one thing clear straight-away: there have never been any apes in the Ape Caves. Sorry. The name comes from the first of Mount St. Helens’ four major eruptive stages and was bestowed upon the caves by an outdoor group called the Mount St. Helens Apes.”

  • Dispelling an ABC news report in 2003, mixing up and combining the story of the Patterson Gimlin Film and the Ray Wallace Wooden Footprint find. In 2003 ABC news had reported that the Patterson Gimlin Film was a hoax because on his deathbed in 2002 he confessed to the film being fake. Completely misinformation. As a matter of fact, Wallace never admitted to ANY hoaxing. His family found a pair of “Stompers”", aka wooden Bigfoot feet in his shed after he passed away. Did he make the famous 1958 Jerry Crew tracks which coined the term “Bigfoot” up?  There seems to be a difference.

                              Green-Crew-Wallace2BCMpic

Right: The Jerry Crew Cast, Center: The Wallace Stomper, Left: Blue Creek Mountain Track

 

When looking at the three above it becomes apparent which one was a Wallace print and which one was not. Forensically it is easy to see, granted the stomper is a right foot and the track is a left. The sad news is in regards to the ABC news foul up, I received a response when I complained, that if they were wrong they would print a retraction, and despite sending them numerous references, they never followed up. So much for accuracy in the news.

Of course we don’t have time to correct all the inaccuracies that the media may kick out, but some of the major ones. we want to correct and do our best to uphold some semblance of truth before misnomers and lies do indeed become the truth.

This information needs to be repeated every so often because of the constant influx of new people.

Hence the reason why a hoaxer is allowed to dupe a whole other group of researchers for a second time, using an old Frank Hansen stunt. (Bodies and bringing a phony on tour is no sign of originality.)

“A lie gets half way around the world before the truth has a chance to get it’s pants on.”

So why were people so angry at “Bigfoot Captured?”

Unlike Animal Planet’s Mermaid “Documentary,” and Megladon “Documentary” that appeared on Discovery Channel, at the beginning of this History Channel “documentary,” it clearly stated that some portions of the film have been “dramatized.”

bigfoot captured main

The captured “Bigfoot,” from the false documentary “Bigfoot Captured.”

Well I will explain why.

  • First:

          Dramatized:

                  verb (used with object), dramatized, dramatizing.

                           1. to put into a form suitable for acting on a stage.

                          2. to express or represent vividly, emotionally, or strikingly:

                  verb (used without object), dramatized, dramatizing.

                         3. to express oneself in a dramatic or exaggerated way.

                                                   Source: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/dramatize

 

In this case I thing the director of the documentary got the word “dramatized”  with the word FICTIONALIZED.

 

         Fictionalized: 

                  verb (used with object), fictionalized, fictionalizing.

                               1. to make into fiction; give a somewhat imaginative or fictional version of.

                                               Source: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fictionalized?s=t

  • Second, the film isn’t clear what is documentary and what is an act. For example, is Kelly Shaw’s experience; made up or real? Many people think the former not the latter. If you ask him I am sure he will tell you different. And that’s just the first problem.

  • Third, people could misconstrue Dr. Meldrum’s or any of the real researchers part as fiction as well. Dr. Meldrum has publicly stated his distaste for the outcome of the production, and he is so very right in so much as when you sign on to do a documentary or program, what they tell you or what the outcome of production is, you have very little say. Sounds to me like they soft balled the pitch to him.

 

  • Fourth it causes the public to believe wrong things about this mystery. The confusion was so bad it forced Snopes.com to comment on it:

“While the program started with a brief disclaimer stating that Breaking History: Bigfoot Captured featured "some dramatization" and ended with credits listing various actors who pretended to be Bigfoot hunters, the episode was presented in documentary form and therefore fooled a number of viewers into believing that a Bigfoot creature had actually been captured during the process of filming.”

                                          Source: http://www.snopes.com/bigfoot-captured-history-channel/

    • Fifth, It puts all future documentaries in doubt. How would you like to put out a class A documentary and full of 100% source checked facts, only not to be believed or accused of faking stuff because of productions like this? I wouldn’t that’s for sure, but that’s what we’re up against now. 

     

    • Sixth and finally the dishonesty of the “documentary” continues even today on the show’s webpage do they lie by stating the following describing the program with a smear of dishonesty,  

    “Bigfoot is America’s most legendary creature, and has always inspired more questions than answers. Could something resembling a massive man-ape really be roaming forests and hiding in the shadows undetected? Whether you believe in Bigfoot or not, there’s something provocative about the idea that we could be living with an unseen monster. But what if one day we did more than catch a glimpse of one? What if we captured the creature? This two-hour special, compiled by a director who traveled the world looking for proof Bigfoot actually exists, takes an unexpected turn when a Sasquatch capture is caught on camera. What happens when what most of us think is fiction becomes fact? And what does it mean for us all if the creature really is out there.”

                                                     Source:http://www.history.com/shows/bigfoot-captured/about

     

     

    No disclaimer on the site of any “dramatization.”

    The Center for Media and Social Impact describes itself as,

    “…an innovation incubator and research center that creates, studies, and showcases media for social impact. Focusing on independent, documentary and public media, the Center bridges boundaries between scholars, producers and communication practitioners across media production, media impact, public policy, and audience engagement.”

                                                                                   Source: http://www.cmsimpact.org/about-us

     

    What they say in one of their surveys about documentaries put out to filmmakers recently is not surprising,

     

    “At the same time, many of the filmmakers surveyed spoke of commercial pressures, particularly in the cable business, to make decisions they believed to be unethical. The trend towards faster and cheaper documentaries and the “assembly line” nature of work has proven challenging to filmmakers’ understanding of their obligations to subjects in particular. They also blurred the line between traditional documentary, reality, and hybrid forms. These developments often troubled documentarians…Filmmakers also face pressure to inflate drama or character conflict and to create drama where no natural drama exists. They may be encouraged to alter the story to pump up the excitement, the conflict, or the danger.”

                        Source: http://www.cmsimpact.org/making-your-media-matter/documents/best-practices/honest-truths-documentary-filmmakers-ethical-chall

     

    It is very obvious there is no easy solution as reality television, which includes documentaries evolves. Let us hope this hybrid type dies a quick death. We all thought it did a couple of years ago with those prior phony documentaries, but it once again reared its head with one twist: This time it used real people to foster their “dramatization.”

     


    And finally… another LNP slip?

    We recently outlined some of the problematic things with Linda Sue’s (Linda Newton-Perry aka Ms. Sparkles) “Miller Document,” indicative of many of her other hoaxes: For example,

    • “ESP’s” Bigfoot pic which they named, “Big Clyde.” Clyde was the name of the Orangutan in Clint Eastwood’s “Every Which Way But Loose” and “Every Which Way You Can.” Strangely when we found the actual people LNP was using pics for as the “ESP” team, they tended to a bull by the name of “Big Jake.”

    bigjake008_fs_fs

    • The ESP member Hank Parchell. In the first picture put out by the ESP Team it was easily identified as an inverted photo cap of the Bigfoot used in the 1977 movie, “Sasquatch, The Legend of Bigfoot.” In that movie there was a character named Hank Parshall.

     

     Parshall

    Thanks to one of my Facebook friends, Carson Hopper, we now may know LNP got some of her names..

                       00323524935-368-k752045

    Left: A calling to her alleged “posters” for help to verify claims. On right

    In the past especially with her ESP Team and Big Clyde/Sasquatch:Legend of Bigfoot debacles where LNP plead help from “Bill Emery’s” friend “Marcy” for help Here was see LNP asking help by these otherwise anonymous folks, for help regarding he Miller / Wentworth scam.

    Well here’s the synopsis of “A Year of Novembers.”

     

    yon

    The protagonist of this self published author, (the Perry’s are also self published) is named Sophia Alcaster.

    Well it seems LNP is sticking to her patterns or just yet another coincidence that seems to keep popping up around all things Bigfoot Ballyhoo. We should call it, “Bigfoot Baloneyhoo.” We’ll keep digging and letting you know more here!!!

    Till Next Time,

    Squatch-D

    As the fall sneaks in…let the ballyhoo begin!!!

    Yes folks, there seems to be some buzz about the so called “Miller Document.” This document alleges that H.A. Miller had some sort of experience in examining Sasquatch bodies both in Texas and California.

    First lets consider the source of the “document.” It comes from the Bigfoot Ballyhoo blog. Yep Linda Newton Perry and yet another female “informant” with no last name and a bunch of made up internet bloggers which give their “comments” saying how dear Sophia is telling the truth.

    Well not so fast there LNP… we’ve seen the same behavior years ago with the infamous allegations that Oregon was taking Driver’s Licenses away from people reporting Sasquatch. This was debunked by David Paulides via the Freedom of Information Act.

    3305521 

    Of course there was the infamous ESP team and their trail cam pic. Turning out to be a lousy photo shop of a screen cap of the 1976 movie, The Legend of Sasquatch.

         1610170_orig4516141

    Again all of these are backed or reported by usually woman giving only their first names, and never once has a video or voice recording of any of these folks been made. Much of LNP’s antics and support of fraudulent stories can be found here on the Hall of Shame Page.

    So far this is what we have found out…and believe me we are paying attention to her again.

      • The photo used is genuine.
      • FES-Class-of-1930-browser

         

      • H.A. Miller MD, Ph.D existed. But the one suggested graduated Forestry and Med School long before 1930.

      Miller3Miller

       

      • H.A. Miller did not graduate Harvard Medical School.

      We know this because the alumni association commemorates every passed on member. There were two deceased Millers which graduated Harvard Medical School that passed on, but none were H.A.

      Class of 1940-1949 Memoriams

      Richard C. Miller
      Died February 27, 2003

      Harry H. Miller
      Died September 21, 1997

       

      None of which fit. What it appears that information between the two has been confused. The Miller that existed in the early 1900’s was a MD (who obtained his MD in Pennsylvania) with a Ph.D, however it appears that the one in the picture was just an M.A. in Forestry. Remember that it’s because of the MD that all this Bigfoot involvement took place.

      Another interesting note is in the narrative itself.

      First we hear his graduation dates regarding forestry very specific;

      “I completed an additional year in Forestry science and graduated in 1930 with an A.B. from Yale University and an M.F. in 1931 (M.F. is a Master of Science in Forestry).”

                                                                                                            The Miller Document

      However when it comes to the Medical Degree, it is non-specific. A sign an interrogator looks for in an untruth.

      “Graduating from Harvard medical school (Harvard) in the early 1940s…”

                                                                                                            The Miller Document

      Given the information from the Alumni Association Memoriams, there are cracks just in the first few hours of looking at this document. Remember a good liar mixes truth and lies. The fact that there are lies present, considering the reputation of the source of the document, this is pretty easy one to say it’s a crock. Move on to more productive things and don’t try to use this as evidence.

      We’ve seen LNP spin yarns about an alleged dead person by the name of Dale Saxton before. Of course we found the REAL Dale Saxton, but he had passed on years previous. In her story he dies. But below you see some of her fine work. On the Left is her blog, with “Special Guest Blogger,” and on the right, the picture I discovered on a logging site, which not surprisingly did not mention Dale Saxton.

      3767471_orig3950495_orig

       

      Again, LNP’s antics can be found here on the Hall of Shame Page.

       


      New “playah” falls on his face.

      Okay gang let me introduce to you to James “JC” Hayes… he likes to make up Bigfoot stories and conspiracy theories and then pass off old photo caps (which were probably hoaxed in the first place) and try to claim them as his own.

      16595a9

      Unfortunately, he thought he was smarter than me, and found out who the Squatchdetective exactly is.

      Read all about it including audio and video at the Squatchdetective Hall of Shame Page.

       

      I’m back

       

      Till Next Time,

      Squatch-D

      Here begins  lesson #1:

      Don’t act like it’s new if its old.

      Today I read a blog about an old time photo that said, “we knew nothing on it..until now.”

      Really???

                      point

      My file containing the prose written on the back of the photo from 2010.

       

      In 2006, in this article on Cryptomundo, Loren Coleman writes about the picture and references it to Janet and Colin Bord’s Bigfoot Casebook (originally written in 1982 there is an updated version), a must read for any newbie.

      It’s on page 27. Although it does not include the picture of the back plate it states,

      The photograph shows an unidentified animal shot by trappers in Lillooet, BC in the early 20th century.

                                                                – Bigfoot Casebook, Janet & Colin Bord, Page 27. 

      Craig Woolheater also wrote this article on Cryptomundo in November 2006, a virtual repeat of todays blog I read except Cryptomundo included the photo of the writing.

             Bigfoot_dead_Web3bBigfoot_dead_Web3a

       

      But I will give you NEW…

      The first line of Craig’s 2006 post was this…

      “This photo was sent to Tom Biscardi by Lyle Billett of Victoria Canada. I found the photo on his website and wanted to share it, as I have never seen it before and imagined that many, or most, have not either.”

                                                                                             – Craig Woolheater, Cryptomundo, 2006

      According to the Bords pic was taken in the early 20th Century, The Biscardi copy says 1894. Why wouldn’t the Bords just say the “late nineteenth century?”

      I would say lets track down Lyle Billett and ask but unfortunately, Lyle passed away in January of this year, and to be exact he lived in Nanaimo, British Columbia.

       

      Analysis… The writing doesn’t appear in the Bord’s book. Could the handwriting have been added later? It should be considered since the only handwriting photo came from Tom Biscardi’s site. Could it be Billett’s notes? Well I guess its one mystery that went to the grave.

      How’s that for, “Something we didn’t now..until now?”

       I guess someone rehashing does have it’s benefits.

      Lesson # 2

      When we first, fail to learn by history, we are doomed to repeat it.

      This whole Todd Standing thing has me a bit perplexed. Are we bound to continually repeat things already proven?

      See in 2006 when I set the Hall of Shame up and through 2010 when Todd came out with puppet-face, no one disputed it was all BS.

      He disappears for a bit after the “Puppet-face,” only to reemerge, reinventing himself in 2011 with a similarly angle picture who I call “Blinky.”

      We ignored him like some suggested we do to Dyer. Here’s  the result:

      Dyer self implodes, admits at least body on tour is a fake while Standing goes on shows with Canadian compatriot, Les Stroud.

      How did ignoring him work?

      Let’s put aside his evidence for a minute. Standings theories on Sasquatch, although some are a bit non-conformist, they are based on some science and research. Standing sounds intelligent, presents himself as knowledgeable and is for all intensive purposes, seemingly a very nice person. All in of itself good.

      But you put in the evidence that he has come up with, which is all over the top, and all bets are now off. Put emotion aside people.

      Now people who weren’t around for the first couple of rounds with this guy, are new and defending him by waving the no proof banner, which is bunk. But some is good and some new stuff is still being deciphered and some I will debunk here today.

      But blind faith backing in light of the evidence…hmm…

      Didn’t we just go through this with a guy by the name Dyer? Have we not learned a thing?

      Now all of a sudden we have some people, who haven’t outright endorsed his work, sit on a stage with Standing, and people come out of the wood work to defend him.

      I guess we haven’t learned.  

      Of course, some will say, they don’t trust him, may have more things to look at or will need more time to tell.

      “I am not accepting Todd at his word.” –Dr. Jeff Meldrum

        A fair approach I feel. Like I stated yesterday, it appears Dr. Jeff will hold court in the near future over the Toddster’s evidence, but my court was held 8 years ago with the disappeared Sylvanic Video #1 and my court has been long adjourned. Once a hoaxer… always a hoaxer.

      That’s why you go to the history books first. Or the people who sit next to them now may be in for a rough ride.

      He had 8 years to defend himself and in the beginning, as with most hoaxers, he got caught outright making his very first video (featuring his sister as the main character) disappear. We forget that?

      It’s the blind faith followers that always are the most vocal and generally get the most emotional over the situation. When you ask them to debunk evidence submitted, you get no fact but just opinion, and blanket statements that you have no evidence.

      People try to say…well if Les Stroud is behind him…

      Let’s look at a known hoaxer…

                marxivan_marx 1977 hoax

      One of the original hoaxers, Ivan Marx (left) and one of many of his Bigfoots on right. 

       

      Is it any coincidence that Morgan Matthews started his Bigfoot documentary with a hoaxer’s comments?

      But in the 80’s Pulitzer Prize nominated, Yale educated, Castleton State College Anthropologist Dr. Warren L. Cook believed in the veracity of the Marx films.  These remarks came in 1984, long after Marx had been exposed as a hoaxer by Peter Byrne in 1971 and disappeared only to have reemerged and reinvented himself. (Again a familiar theme with hoaxers.)

      Dr. Cook said of Marx…

      “Demonstrably, Ivan Marx of Burney, Shasta County, is a very accomplished nature photographer, skilled woodsman, and animal tracker. By inquiring of Indian and Eskimo informants, and studying Sasquatch habit patterns. Marx would appear to have learned how-to be at the right spot at the right time, camera at the ready.

      Ivan feels disoriented in the bowels of a skyscraper and is happiest in the wilderness. He frets until back with his “sweetie”, as he calls his devoted wife, Peggy, who often accompanies him in the wilds. Zealous to preserve their modest, unfettered life style, Ivan and Peggy have invested a major portion of their lives coming up with the Bigfoot photos for which he is well known — some say notorious — among hominologists.

      But precisely because year after year, he comes forth with such pictures, they are scorned by some or the other well known Bigfoot enthusiasts. He has equivalent distaste for them as ”great white hunter” types with a sour grapes” attitude toward him because they lack the skills and patience to get anywhere near a sasquatch except by chance.

      Marx’s footage sometimes does not conform to the expected image and the specimens in his photos vary in color, size, volume, body fat and length or hair. When he first showed me his color photos, I carped at the domed appearance of the creatures’ skulls (a feature that has subsequently been corroborated by other eyewitnesses with whom I have spoken) and it got back to me that Marx had remarked to a mutual friend. ”I can’t photograph the creature the way them jollies think he ought to look, but only the way he is.”

      My concern from the beginning was to establish whether Marx is telling the truth or faking the photos, words and deeds. Anyone who knows him will report that he is one of the greatest story tellers going — a contemporary Will Rogers.

      Because my own professional reputation was at stake, since I first met Ivan and at the risk of losing his confidence I have ceaselessly sought to probe for inconsistencies, approaching the same point from different angles, months and years apart.

      Doubtless conscious of this, it probably discomfits him but he has always been patient and never failed to give answers that seemed honest and frank. Initially, he and Peggy were unaware of being protagonists in a historical process, and that. It was important to document their photos chronologically and provide details of the content in which they were taken. This had never been done. Plain, unassuming folk, to them it was simply life experienced, year to year.

      Until a sasquatch is examined, in the flesh, and the Marx photos are validated or refuted, I cannot be certain my judgment is correct, but I am of the opinion that Ivan and Peggy, while reticent in their personal lives, are steadfastly honest and it would be out of character for them to jeopardize their goal of documenting sasquatch by tainting genuine photos just to produce more.”

      Ivan Marx was the one indeed to find the “Bossburg Cripple Foot” track… The castings used by Dr. Grover Krantz were found by Marx.

      Joe Rhodes found the first set of tracks on Nov. 24, 1967 and Dahinden did call Marx about the report. However we must remember, at the time, Marx lived in Bossburg.

      However, the track, was found with Rene Dahinden and a local man by the name of Jim Hopkins sitting in the car while Marx checked for prints…

      Several inches of snow had covered the ground that morning when Rene and Ivan Marx and a young local man named Jim Hopkins set out in Marx’s car to check an area along the banks of the Roosevelt River…Marx was away from the car only seconds before coming back: “Bigfoot Tracks!” he shouted. … the right foot was badly deformed.”

                                          – “Sasquatch” by Don Hunter with Rene Dahinden (1975) Pages: 153-154.

       

      Only seconds. And Marx was driving… it was only months later when Marx tried to sell Byrne a video of a creature, supposedly the one with the bad foot, limping around.

      It don’t matter who endorses you… what matters is the EVIDENCE and the story behind it.

       

      Lesson #3

      Always recheck your work, especially when it’s not yours.

      I on the other hand always try to look from answers up, down, left, right.

      Some suggested that I guess a Todd detractor had made the changing images up. Standing stated that someone had sent him that photo. He didn’t describe who, but I do know Todd later circulated it, albeit without description leading many to believe that the picture was the original.

      In fairness and telling it like it is, I could not find any original reference to that picture with any claim on it, like I had originally thought and had read by some. 

      But what I have found out  WHO created the picture and when.

      The picture was created, by a user on a forum here, on or around April 17th, 2013. I coincidently found it a year to the day it was posted.

      Putney, a believer in the Muppet-face wrote this…

      I have spent a few weeks cleaning up one of the stills from his Video4 in photoshop. I removed all the branches and restored all the facial features of the elusive tree-peakers. (sic)”

      However a post up at Dave Rodriguez’s (aka Pragmatic Theorist) blog, unveils something more infallible than Sweaty Yeti’s gif. It’s pretty condemning.

      Lesson #4

      What is past is prologue.

      We predicted this months ago… Dyer self destructing.

      Dyer again finds himself kicked out of a state with all his toys for sale. Rosa his girlfriend, (where in Dyer’s fantasy world she was his wife “Lily Dyer.”) gone… and Dyer taking refuge in or around Griffin, Georgia.

      He’s been keeping low… but thanks to Randy Filopovic’s blog, we know exactly what Dyer’s is up to… trying to recover from his latest sociopathic meltdown.

      Lesson #5

      They don’t go away… they never will.

      Of course we’ve mentioned Carmine, Dyer and Standing, but what’s a good time without Linda Newton-Perry, who even after beating the sh** out of her here with her Team ESP BS… she continues just this last week, on April 12th, to post this…

      LNPESPBS

      Linda still spouting the same lies.

      SSDD as they say or in LNP’s case SSDY, Y being for year. She’s not only a hoaxer and story teller, she’s BAD at it.

      Nuff said, but we don’t want innocents giving her real stuff, because she is a front. That’s why every once in a while we need to nudge and spin the shark by it’s tail.

       

      Lesson #6

      When all of this seems like a bunch of hooey… thank the good Lord, it’s spring. Because now I have a lot less time to sit and read stuff from Standing, Dyer Fig-Newton, and the Snapple dude, and get my ass out into the field for some investigation and research.
