In the summer of 2008, Georgia residents Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer, took part in a hoax that I believe was designed to discredit and damage the reputation of Bigfoot researcher Tom Biscardi of SearchingForBigfoot.com.
Matthew Whitton and Rick Dye claimed to have the 7 foot 500 pound body of a sasquatch that they had recovered from the wood in Georgia in July. A press conference was called for August 15th 2008 in Palo Alto, where DNA evidence was to be revealed to the public.
By August 19th, it was released that the whole affair was a hoax.
In the next several days, I will post the press conference in five parts and expand on some of my theories concerning this very interesting case of sasquatchploitation.
