Tag Archive: Rick Dyer


Okay so I have remained silent on this one up until recently. The case of Mike Patterson and Sasquatch Ontario and their long list of videos alleging remarkable evidence. Most likely it appears for YouTube monetization hits and subscriptions to his channel (32K subscribers). 

   Mike Patterson_thumb[3]sason_thumb[2]

Not for one minute did I believe any of the evidence being put forth by them, but I never really did investigate any of their wares they were selling to the curious public. For the most part I ignored their efforts.

Now when someone says just ignore a hoaxer they will go away, how very wrong you are. They will just keep going until they find a following. In their case they most certainly did.

However, as showcased in the Squatchdetective Hall of Shame page for Sasquatch Ontario, it is very apparent that the ruse is about run its course.

What we get now from Mike Patterson the owner of the account, it a bunch of bullshit that parallel’s Rick Dyer’s 2011 claim that “Men in Black stole my Bigfoot Body.”

Government cover-ups, intrusions, mind speak, and coming to him in dreams now. Not only does it sound like gears are shifting, but he seems to be plagiarizing other “Woo” sites, to attempt to keep it going. A bad, and sad move considering the following information.

Patterson recently posted this Facebook post on March 8th:

So here is an open letter to Mike Patterson:

Mike,

      I appreciate the fact you have regrets which you have made public via various social media outlets. That is ancient history by the looks of it. It should be applauded that you can change your life after those few incidents in your youth and move on from it. People change.

But saying sorry for past transgressions especially after being caught is only words. Actions speak louder than words.

      If you, as you claim, never hide from your mistakes, then why this charade any longer? You are hiding the fact that you perpetrated a hoax on thousands of YouTube subscribers. It’s not a crime, so if what you say, “you never hide from your mistakes", just tell the truth. No harm, no foul and you would gain a lot of respect in my book for doing such.

    If you continue this ruse, then you will be like whom I have arrested almost on a daily basis or have arrested in the past. It will be of the opinion, that the only reason why you wore your heart on your sleeve, was for sympathy.The only reason why you are claiming those as the mistakes of the past, was because those were the wrongs you were caught doing. 

    Prove to us, you are not the narcissistic, habitual lying, living in their own fantasy person that serial hoaxers usually are. Stand by your own words, “Those that are close to me know I wear my heart on my sleeve, never hiding from my mistakes.”

    If you are truly sincere in the latter part of your statement, then admit this whole thing was a sham. Maybe it didn’t start that way, but it certainly ended that way. I would be the first to congratulate you on becoming an honest man.

Definition of Irony

I understand Mr. Biscardi had a show on his weekly program, Bigfoot Live Radio, that featured a segment on Rick Dyer yesterday by interviewing former Bigfoot Tracker Veep, BJ Brashears.

I figured since I’ve been the

Well needless to say there were audio issues with the program so I never got to hear it.

Tonight I was looking around for the archive version finding humor in this whole thought of Biscardi putting the digs into Dyer, when I discovered that The SFBI Facebook page had a link to a Bigfoot “Hall of Fame.”

Ironic

Left the day after Biscardi had a Radio show outing Dyer.

Maybe Tom was flattered that his picture was prominently displayed amongst others like Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Derek Randles and Loren Coleman, all great folks in my opinion. But I also noticed Rick Dyer was there. And Todd Standing.

I also noticed it was a Wix page.

So my curiosity went up and ran the Whois on the page on the site.

Guess who owns it???

 

Guess Who

Dyer’s Personal information has been censored.

Now that’s my definition of irony!!!!

 


Squatch-D Radio Back!!!!

Chris Bennett and I are so glad to be back on the airwaves at Beyond Borders Paranormal Radio Network. Visit our other sister shows there as well!!!

NewRadioLogo

 

The show can be heard on Sundays 10PM EST (9CST), and accessed through the Beyond Borders website or by going to SquatchdetectiveRadio.com. The show archive page is also up and functioning where you can listen to the program replay or download it.

Our guest lineup is filling fast and we are booked until June. More guest announcements this week.

We’re also excited to be doing an “Out of the Box” show every third Sunday of the month, featuring a guest on topics other than our hairy friends.


Upcoming stuff…

Tomorrow night I will be going on the Giant’s Bigfoot Radio program for an hour long discussion on Sasquatch and who knows what other topics may come up.

Next Friday I will be on Scarefest Radio, talking about last years Scarefest 8 and this years Scarefest 9, where they’ve already announced one of my favorite actors, Malcolm McDowell, will be appearing.

Of course, on May 6th, 7th and 8th,  I am excited and super stoked to be a participant in the 2016 Pennsylvania Bigfoot Camping Adventure.

They’ll be a screening of The Beast of Whitehall and special guest from Mountain Monsters, John “Trapper” Tice. (Yes we know folks, its television so chillax. Be fun to meet the guy and have a few laughs). Even Squatch-D can let his hair down once in a while… (okay I know…what hair!)

Looking forward to meeting a bunch of people, and getting boots on the ground in Pennsylvania and do some research.

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.

Read more about it here at Randy’s Bigfoot Anarchy Blog:

Who’s profiting from Hank now???

It was reported to me sometime ago by then Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society Director, Eric Altman that a fellow had bought the mold from Dyer’s phony Sasquatch, “Hank.” And like many years ago of Biscardi trying to cash in on his own hoax by attempting to sell the “Bigfoot in a Freezer” costume for $250K visa vie Joshua P. Warren…

Now we have the man who bought the mold selling “Hank” Busts for just $250.00 a pop. You can see the EBay listing here.

A big thank you to Pinkfoot for bringing that to my attention!!!

Snips of the EBay listing.

I will admit Brett did an incredible reproduction. Just as an FYI he bought the mold from the man who made the original Hank for an undisclosed amount and not Rick Dyer. Would look kind of cool on my mantle. Like a hunter with a deer head, a hoax buster with a costume head. Damn it now I want one!

At least its not a bad guy profiting, so I have no problem with it.

1410537404714_wps_1_image001_png

However we did learn that “Hank” himself went to Marijuana dispensary in Colorado reportedly for $12K what allegedly Dyer paid for Hank. The report of this can be read here which follows tour promoter and ex-Team Track Andrew Clacy.

Much more to come as more of the Dyer “Money Train” is exposed. My guess is Hanky Panky now is being funded by the sale of Hank.

But much more to come as we may have the first lawsuit being brought to bear against Mr. Dyer on a funding deal… more details to follow on that.

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.)

 

cook

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.”

                                                                                 — Dr. Warren L. Cook, 1984

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.

bosskrantz

A young Dr. Krantz in a 70’s documentary showing Marx’s “Bossburg Cripple Foot.”

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.

bigfoot1

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)”

                                                                        – Alexander Putney, April 17th, 2013

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.

 

SticksReversed

One of Dave’s more interesting and condemning work ups.

 

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.

Crap for sale… Location: Griffin, Georgia.

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.
