Tag Archive: Bigfoot hoax


So it’s been a few days since my exposing on my blog that Khat Hansen is hoaxing. I wasn’t the first, but it certainly got her attention. Good!

Her response was not to the evidence presented, I mean it was pretty damning, but rather to play the victim card and apparently making claims to folks she was physically threatened, which led some nut case to start accusing me of threatening her.

But the truth is this is exactly what Guy Edwards said several years ago when it comes to the stages of a Bigfoot hoax… particularly points number two and five.

Guy Edwards’ Stages of a Bigfoot Hoax

  • Number 1: The Announcement
  • Number 2: Defensiveness or Attack of Critics
  • Number 3: Postponement of Evidence
  • Number 4: Postponement of Evidence Again
  • Number 5: Claim, you are a Victim of a Hoax

If you look at her Facebook post she states that the people have used photoshopped pictures of gorillas and saying they are hers.

SmartSelect_20190119-021508_Facebook

That post reeks of the Linda Newton-Perry “feel sorry for me” post from years back! Don’t worry “Khitties”, (Khat’s minions) she’s not going anywhere. If their is anything I learned, hoaxers of this magnitude’s egos override the sane thing to do which is bow out quietly and enjoy their fantasies without infecting people who don’t have a clue about the truth and science behind this mystery.

The pics don’t look like yours??? The one I used, clearly we found the source image. The only Photoshopping done was Khat herself cropping out the mouth and changing the aspect ratio of the picture to make the eyes appear larger.

KH Comparison

And make no doubt, she is the one who put it on the video almost two years ago…

Here’s the ORIGINAL VIDEO found on YouTube:

It also says she has received threats. This coming from a person already caught in the scam above and a bold face LIE on another Facebook hoax stating the old Shawn Bannon hoax, was actually her picture of a Bigfoot she calls “Big Red.”

Show me the evidence you have been threatened. It’s non-existent like the rest of her crappy experiences with Sasquatch, or her archaeology degree from BYU.

Which is the segway into the next point… she is either not really named Khat Hansen … or her archaeology degree from BYU is bull.  How do I know?

KH LinkedIn

AD

archaeology

(Above)The only Hansens with archaeology degrees.

1st name search

(Above) The only graduates in any degree program, with first names starting with K-H-A-T.

Now here’s where things get dicey. There IS a Hansen and only ONE in the United States with the name of Khat Hansen. And she lived in Salt Lake City, Utah from 2001-2006. Her name: Khaty Hansen aka Khatouna Hansen. But yet their is no K-H-A-T with a degree from BYU, which by the way is 45 miles from Salt Lake City, Utah in Provo. An interesting coincidence. By the way…you have to be a Mormon to go to BYU as it is run by the LDS. Khat never mentioned from what I have read as ever, or talking about, being a former Mormon.

By the way…if the only Khat Hansen in the US is our person claiming to be “Khat Hansen”, she doesn’t live in a very Squatchy state; Connecticut. Not the country part either.

See as I veteran Private Investigator, I WILL get to the truth of the matter if pressed. My suggestion: Quit while you’re ahead. More hoaxes will equal more embarrassment. BTW Khat why did you delete so many photos after all the articles came out?  


Crazy People

Now we go to the lunatic fringe as the other day I received a PM from one of her minions, Lynk Paul who deftly accused me of threatening Hansen with violence. do these hoaxers send minions to fight their fights? Cowardly. Whaaaaaat? A conversation ensued and it ended peacefully with this message.

SmartSelect_20190118-202905_Messenger

But alas, the hypocrisy shows it’s true colors and this was forwarded to me. A conversation by a person making threats to shoot some of her detractors. Khat responds by actually saying it was deserved and Lynk Paul, the hypocrite, (who stated to help keep people that threaten violence out of this business), saying it’s been a long time coming.

SmartSelect_20190119-030808_Messenger

Of course when I mentioned this to Mr. Paul he stated it was a set up basically thinking I was monitoring wherever this was posted.  Of course when caught, just say I was set up. For what? There is no motive to do something this stupid. But when you poke the bear this is what you get!!!

                                             

SmartSelect_20190119-020305_Messenger    SmartSelect_20190119-020245_Messenger

Of course what have I been thinking? Er..no!

So in a mood of not feeling so generous… my general sentiment is…

my-cousin-vinny-3-300x161 (1)

So I compose myself for a minute, take a deep breath and just tell him like it is…

SmartSelect_20190119-020521_Messenger

This is what we are up against folks. Call someone out on BS and the crazies come out of the wood-work. This guy lives on some fantasy world and will never be rationalized. Then he got caught with his pants down, caught in his own hypocrisy, not realizing that someone friendly to the truth was watching.

 A warning to the Khitties out there… keep poking the bear, I will dig even deeper. I fight my fights with facts not threats and grandiose statements.

Rest assure the Sasquatch will not hurt me. They tell me they like me better than you anyway!!!!

Hi gang, it’s been some time since I have written. It has been a busy year not so much in the Bigfoot world but my personal life and all for the good. Once again I am a Licensed Private Investigator and am in process of launching an Investigation agency.

My field teams to the East and West have been working their areas and developing new areas and am excited at the possibility that spring 2018 will bring us some great results not seen since that of 5-6 years ago.

New equipment is in and will be using to enhance our coverage of our field team and looking forward to some more field testing of the said equipment.


I have laid low because the vitriol in the Bigfoot “Community” has been at an all time high not seen in a long while. My efforts are geared to the more positive aspects of research now, but as usual some negative creeps in and something I feel necessary to bring to the light of folks.

I write much about hoaxing, because I feel an educated public assists us in our search. Most recently, a relatively new group called the East Texas Bigfoot Hunters, put a post, on what is becoming the bane of the community’s existence, their Facebook page, this post.

Ohiny post

Note the wording on the post and I would like to flag some very key verbiage:

“USING OUR GAME CAMERAS”

“SEVERAL HOURS OF FOOTAGE”

“EXAMINE THE FOOTAGE MORE CLOSELY”

This was followed by a second post eleven minutes later:

second post

Note more of the verbiage:

“FEW MRE PICS FROM THE FOOTAGE”

“WE ARE STILL EXAMINING THE FOOTAGE”

“OWNERS”

Well to many of us that have been around a while this photo has been popping up over the last few years or so, known as The “Greenbrier Video,” so it was no big surprise and was obvious this was a hoax.

So when people started to question the picture that were in the know, particularly researcher Daz Brown and confronted, how quick the story changed and the pointing of the finger to the alleged anonymous submitter of the “picture.” Prompting a change in the story.

Daz

reply 2

Note the wording in the verbiage:

“PHOTOS (EMAILED TO US)”

“PROPERTY OWNER”

Seems to be a little discrepancy from what was said in the first two posts to now this explanation. They went from reviewing hours of footage, to still examining footage to now photo just emailed. Also note that “the property owners,” has become the property owner.

This fits perfectly with most of the stages of Guy Edwards, “Stages of a Bigfoot Hoax:”

  1. The Announcement
  2.  Defensiveness or Attack of Critics
  3. Postponement of Evidence
  4. Postponement of Evidence Again
  5.  Claim, you are a Victim of a Hoax.

We see the Fifth Stage very clear in their last post about the picture:

post2

Some may say, “Well they got fooled and excited and posted it too quick.”

But….NOT SO FAST!

Now look at the statements in the reply and the post regarding this. Here’s my concerns.

First, in their original post, they stated they were looking at “hours of footage.” Footage means video. That changed to pictures this anonymous property owner had “emailed them”

Second, “It took us almost no time to bust this person…”  BUT “After being up most of the night working and examining these photos.” 

Third, They didn’t post at all they busted the property owner, not until  Daz Brown came out and told them the evidence they were presenting as their own was a hoax. Again this was BEFORE ANY POSTING BY ETBH claiming it was a hoax. Which should have taken them no time at all and nothing would have been posted had they just Googled the image. Seems like they are trying to say THEY busted it. Wrong.

Third, they still want to meet with the property owner because the area has great potential….WHAT??

In their post clearly shows a VIDEO PLAYER with the same length of video:

vid player

More to the matter of fact, we see the exact video player here with the same time stamp in The Paranormal Review’s YouTube Page posted in 2014:

YT Cap

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_h7HbIG4YE

So it was very obvious this was a screen cap, which they had said they caught after monitoring their game cams.

Why wouldn’t they know what terrain is in their shot to begin with? Please don’t tell me that you let the property owner set your cams up as an excuse because that doesn’t necessarily wash with me either.

May I be remiss to address the old excuse “We were hoaxed,” to remember the 2005 episode of C2C radio, regarding a bigfoot capture where a gentleman from Menlo Park stated, “We have scientists looking at it right now,” only to be days later using the same excuse.

In another post they talk about using “due diligence.”  Well said due diligence, would normally dictate, that before posting such amazing evidence and claims, that due diligence would be done FIRST.

Seems to me more due diligence was done on T-shirt and decal designs.

And it is ironic, that the news article they were featured in also had two other characters profiled on this blog, the very gentleman from Menlo Park, and Bob Garret.

Common sense tells us what this really is. Well that’s the way I see it anyway, but the reader is the real jury.

I have often said that in order to validate a picture you must first validate the story behind it.

First lets understand the story as it first appeared in the Facebook Group, The Bigfoot Community whom has graciously allowed me to illustrate for education purposes this dissertation on debunking photos.


Part I : The Claim (Here we go!)

This picture was posted on The Bigfoot Community group on February 9th, 2016 with the following claim…

Post 1

 

Okay so I am not so impressed with the picture. But let’s do some follow through on the story.

DNR Etc

But as the story went on it became more elaborate, involving DNR, Sheriffs, sworn affidavits and dogs to track the beast. This didn’t make the news like all the other police responded Bigfoot events why? We see this typically in hoaxes.

Also the area was supposed to be remote as well…

 

40mile

 

But here we have some issue, I mean how did they get a hold of the sheriff with no cell towers nearby?

But according to Google Maps, there seem to be an abundance of cell towers on Lake Marion, which is part of Orangeburg County, South Carolina.  I-95 dissects the lake in half.

towers

But there seems to be plenty of cell phone coverage on Lake Marion. Now for a quick break for some interesting sight seeing.

 

FindingBF1 Ranae

12688351_1046589482064976_313681718096314837_n

Meanwhile the day after initiating the conversation with Finding Bigfoot’s Ranae Holland, our person “with the cousin” now takes to the Animal Planet site and posts four separate times.

 

Animal Planet Posts

Now the whole Finding Bigfoot / Animal Planet tryst, really is a distraction, for most, but there seems to be a “look at me” motive going on and an admitted desire on the part of the “submitter” to be on television.

So with the failed attempt at Finding Bigfoot, it was off to one of the, if not the largest Facebook group about our hairy friends, The Bigfoot Community group.

Enter my foray after seeing the post, and within 24 hours of asking to get a copy of the original photo, allegedly from a cell phone, I was blocked over a rather minor reason. Because I had stated I had not gotten the originals as I was promised that evening to someone who posted that FACT publicly.

Now yes there were some people that got downright nasty with her over the picture. I don’t necessarily condone such action and I have always chosen to fight with fact and interrogative questions rather than insults or taunts.

So yes a lot of us were very skeptical, plus we all thought the picture looked, well…not so good. But research the story before trying to find any merit, if there is any merit with the photo.

So I was effectively cut out…or was I?


Part II : Never Sell Your Cabbages Twice

Enter Mark, my new friend from Canada. He too picked up the story as well, and here was his initial post.

                 12735709_10208073167894271_1541224396_n12722424_10208073168174278_1826457452_o

Now just so everyone knows this wasn’t just made up, I do have the PM screen caps…

Convo 1

Convo2

Again why would you bring your cell phone to call 911 when…

40mile

 

No mention of DNR, Sheriffs or Bloodhounds. The picture was taken by accident?Well that’s a first we’ve heard of that.

Big discrepancies in the stories? Things not making sense? You bet.

Well within 12 hours of asking for an original photo from the “Submitter” he was blocked for no apparent reason. The BC Admins trying to obtain more info…an original photo, even a date, all nothing. Which is what I expected.

Very typical for hoaxers to play the part of a victim, because they make a claim and folks want just the simplest of things. More pics, the original pic, how about the date and time. Not ambiguous, a week ago, or to another two weeks ago.

Stalling another common facet. First the cousin’s husband will be home “later,” then “tomorrow,” then “the day after.” “Perhaps a drive to there home over the weekend.”

The behind the scenes ambiguity, stalling, or just not asking the simplist of questions are all huge flags.

I had my first Sasquatch encounter on July 16th, 2006. It’s a date I will never forget. With things of such significance, YOU DON’T FORGET. And you certainly don’t answer the question, “What was the date?” With, “Oh about two weeks ago.”


Part III Now for the rest of the story

Problem number one is why isn’t her cousin doing all this? Being the spokesperson for his own photograph, not his cousins wife some two hours away?

This is what I call a potential setup for what I call the “Biscardi Loophole.” If she is caught, it’s not her fault, it is her nameless cousin’s husband that duped her.

Now I kept asking if we could get an original copy of the photo. I asked everyone involved to ask that question, and it was promised and promised, but never delivered upon.

Ruling: HOAX (Intentional)


Epilogue

The lesson here is, have patience. Have facts before calling something a hoax on just looks alone. Your opinion is not evidence. Give a hoaxer enough rope, they hang themselves. She could have been gigged on the story flaws and inconsistencies alone or the photo metadata alone, but having them both is having the beyond certainty box checked and a decision you can sleep on. The other flip side is there is nothing that can be done to recover from this.

She has been trying to play the victim, but how can she be a victim in the light of EVIDENCE? The answer is she can’t. She should go as quickly as she came and as quietly as possible.

Special thanks to Suzy M., Robin R. and Brenda from The Bigfoot Community. Also props to Shane Corson for getting me in touch with Mark “Sasquatch,” and Super props to Mark for putting the dunk onto her two storylines.

Again the Submitter’s name has been omitted so her name isn’t further exposed. At least not by me anyway. And I do wish that people let her go in peace without taunting, “told ya so’s,” and the like. Be satisfied, by what we’ve done here. She will see this and know that we weren’t fooled, and that everything we do, we investigate. With an open mind, while remaining objective and the outcome is the truth, be it good, bad or downright ugly.

And that’s what we’re about!!!

Thanks to a few intrepid researchers out there this has been brought to my attention and a little necessary investigation was performed to come out with this gem of an outcome.

Since early this year a group calling itself the Maryland Bigfoot Research Organization has been touting having a state of the art facility and a highly educated doctor backing them, Dr. Jose Garcia, MD. who claims to work at John Hopkins University and only emerged with his own Google+ account three weeks ago. This ringer is being run on Google+ social network and they have a YouTube account as well which they are using to hijack content.

On November 24th, 2015 the “Doctor” made a huge claim:

 

Big claim

Wild claim found on the “Doc’s” Google+ page.

I am afraid that people might have the inclination to send evidence there.

Word of caution: DON’T!


How is this a hoax you ask???

Jose

“Dr. Garcia’s” profile.

        impressive2 impressive

Impressive credentials for an MD wouldn’t ya say?

 

Except our sources that dropped this story in our lap, called John Hopkins and they know of no doctor there by Jose Garcia.

The Doctor’s profile pick is actually that of an actual MD and professor at John Hopkins, Dr. Ben Ho Park:

Now we know that the person that started the Maryland Research Organization page many months was also opened by someone claiming to be Dr. Jose Garcia as well.

Here are some of the items debunked on both pages:

 

On the left is the fine “Doctor” posting about remains…

I am also put off by the gross plagiarism of Dr. Henner Fahrenbach’s and the omission of even John Green’s quote in Dr. Fahrenbach’s work.

henner ripoff Henner2

Simple cut and paste job with the only thing missing is the credits to who REALLY wrote it and who was quoted.

Original Source: http://Bigfootencounters.com

So given the claims and the ease of debunking these claims, not seen since the likes of LNP, this is a hoax of the obvious proportion.  So my next question is who did it?

 


Just who is behind the MBRO & Doc Garcia?

What we do know is the Google+ accounts are an obvious hoax. The pages are run by a man by the name of James May, from Middle River, Maryland who is a partner in a sign company and is a current or former DJ who used the stage name “Jose Garcia.” He also has a Facebook account under that name as well. Thanks to “Jose” using his business address, we linked everything together very neatly.

First I database searched the address he posts on the Maryland Bigfoot page, and there is listed a James May. In the YouTube comments, “the doctor” throws an email address out there for someone to contact him. We do a search of the web with the email address, and we find the business name with the name James May posted as a partner. There were other relevant database backups as well.

search

A Google search also turned up the email address linked to both Google+ pages.

business web

 Eventually we got the company profile listing James May as a partner.

Of course our database search recovered this address when we searched James May’s name. (The address is publicly listed on the Google+ Page which is why it is listed here.): 

James Jay May

Database on the address of Mr. May comes up as the address publicly posted on the MBRO Google+ page.

  

                   DJ Too    dj twitter account 

An internet search using the business name corresponds. With the Garcia profile on Facebook it led us to the Twitter page which is also supported with the database search results.

Not so coincidentally, the Jose “Jim” Garcia page which led us Twitter account has this photo on it! Hmm..an Asian man doing lab tests.

Apparently he’s a Doctor who also owns a DJ business!

 

Bottom line folks, don’t send him anything… He’s a HOAXER!!!

Yesterday evening, I had come home to see this interesting picture posted on the Coast 2 Coast website, depicting what appeared to be a Sasquatch observing a train as it passed. 

 

Sasquatch Watching a Passing Train

Well if it is a train, it must have been moving awfully slow. The other thing that struck me as oddly familiar and not in a good way, mainly the nose. 

 

So I reached out to my friend Randy Filipovic, aka Racer X, and noticed he had already covered it, apparently having the same thought process as I did.

The creator of Rick Dyer’s "Hank," Chris Russell  had actually made a second model which he had made for an Idaho Theme Park, and what we are seeing is the theme park train passing by the cousin of "Hank."

Is it also a surprise that the submitter of the page used Dyer’s legal first name "Ricky?" I think not.
