These idiots and their Bigfoot lies!
These people are the lowest life forms!
I sort of knew it was fake the minute I heard the name Tom Biscardi, and felt there was no truth to it, but Mathew Whitton, Tom Biscardi, and Rick Dyer claimed they had recovered a Bigfoot body. Now this would have been great news if it was true and would of helped the Crypto field move ahead. It would have opened the door for Scientist and Skeptics to really come together and work with the researchers. So much could have been accomplished.
Now comes the truth, today it came back as it was a rubber costume all along.
These idiots set back the field so far because of their stupid little antics. I hope these idiots are terrified to leave their homes!
Here is the story:
Bigfoot nothing but a rubber costume
August 20, 2008 - 9:18AM
The supposed corpse of Bigfoot has been revealed as nothing but a rubber costume, and the two US men who boasted its discovery are now - like the real Bigfoot - missing, an investigator says.
- Bigfoot fraud
- Creature's 'hollow head'
- $50,000 sum paid
Matthew Whitton and Ricky Dyer, announced to the world last weekend that they had found a corpse of the legendary ape-like creature in a secret forest location in their home state of Georgia.
But the organisation that arranged that press conference, Searching for Bigfoot Inc, says it was all "a lie" and a "fraud".
Steve Kulls, an investigator, wrote on the Searching for Bigfoot website that, after examining the supposed frozen corpse on Sunday, they found it to be a fake.
"I extracted some [hair] from the alleged corpse and examined it and had some concerns," he wrote.
"We burned said sample and said hair sample melted into a ball uncharacteristic of hair.
"At that time we contacted [Searching for Bigfoot CEO Tom Biscardi, who was present at the press conference] who gave us permission to begin an expedited melting process.
"Within one hour we were able to see the partially exposed head, as I was now able to touch it, I was able to feel that it seemed mostly firm, but unusually hollow in one small section. This was yet another ominous sign.
"As the team and I began examining this area near the feet, I observed the foot which looked unnatural, reached in and confirmed it was a rubber foot.
"Later that day, Tom Biscardi informed us that both Matthew Whitton and Ricky Dyer admitted it was a costume."
Mr Whitton and Mr Dyer agreed to meet Mr Biscardi at a hotel later that day to provide a written admission of what they had done, Mr Kulls said.
But when Mr Biscardi arrived at the hotel, the pair had vanished, he said.
"The motives behind this fraud are still unknown at this time," Mr Kulls said.
"It is still unclear why Whitton who, being a police officer for the Clayton County Police Department in Georgia got up before the world and lied and was complicit in a scheme to defraud in a felonious manner."
It was also revealed that Mr Biscardi paid an "undisclosed sum" to Mr Whitton and Mr Dyer as an advance on the returns expected from the "marketing and promotion" of the Bigfoot discovery announcement.
FoxNews.com reported the sum was rumoured to be $US50,000 ($57,000).
Loren Coleman, who runs Cryptomundo - a website devoted to cryptozoology, the study of hidden animals - said the whole scam appeared to be about money.
Despite the message on Mr Biscardi's company's website, which distanced him from the fraud, she said he was likely to have been part of the sham.
"He's a huckster, a circus ringmaster," she told FoxNews.com.
"It's all about money with him. It probably didn't matter to him whether it was real or not.
"[Mr Whitton and Mr Dyer] probably started out small, as a way to promote their Bigfoot tracking business, and got in way over their heads.
"These are not very intelligent individuals."
