A seven year olds sighting

On October 22 2016 I conducted one of the hardest interviews ever. Yesterday a local mother contacted me and asked me to listen to her seven year olds story.
After meeting the mother and having her tell me the story I set down with the child and asked the seven year old to tell me what he saw. He told me he had seen a hairy thing while playing outside it was crossing the field out back and it stopped and looked at me.
I asked the seven year old what kind of clothes did it have on and the seven year old replied it didn't have any clothes on it was all black!
I then asked how do you know it looked at you, the seven year old replied it stopped walking and seen me.
I then asked what did you do, the seven year old replied I was scared and ran and hid until it was gone.
Then I asked him did anyone else see it, the seven year old replied  no but I told my mom.
I was shown the location the child point out where the black thing had come from and where it stopped.
After seeing the area and location there is a small group of woods an open field adjoining another group of woods . Apparently this happen between the hours of 1pm and 3pm.
The seven year old is far more mature for his age and the details of what he saw isn't what one would make up. The identity and location has been kept confidential by the request of the parents
The parents stated that he has never mention anything like this before. Working with young children is truly hard separating fact from imagination but in this interview the seven year old truly believes he saw something.

October 5 2015 investagation

At our Trimble county library presentation October 3 2016.  A gentleman show Rodney and myself some very compelling trail cam photos . in the series of photos that were set to take a photo one minute apart, as the photos started it shows a doe feeding in  front of the camera as he moved thru photos it was at the third photo there appears to be a large gray bipedal figure in the frame and on the fourth it was gone. since then the Northern Kentucky research group have copies of the photos at which is at this time is being analyzed. We also did a recreation at the same exact location and photograph it to compare with the photos.
On October 5 2016 I met with the gentleman at his farm and upon taking with him he stated that this is a recurring event at about the same time each year. He also stated that he and his family had seen the huge figure standing at the edge of his corn field he described the figure as very large and gray standing like a man swaying, he also stated that that after the sightings they would go and check the edge of the corn field and find that ears of corn were taken off the stalk and placed in a piled. He also stated that on numerous occasions that something had come in his garden and taken his watermelons and cantaloupes with the vines still attached He also stated that they have found large footprints in the garden. He showed me the garden and his house is quite away from the road and the garden further and if someone was stealing from the garden they would have a pretty good hike. on one occasion the gentleman stated that one night as he was heading in his bedroom he noticed what appeared to be a silhouette of a large head outside the window from the security light as he moved toward the window it moved away he stated that he went out side to investigate and saw nothing but the next morning the flowers under the window was pressed down as if something was standing there. I check the window and measured the height at the bottom of the sill to the ground which measured 6 foot 5 inches. He also stated that early in the mornings as he is in the feed building rocks are thrown landing on top of his building. The gentleman also stated that he has a Neighbor that had rocks thrown at them from the wood line.  The gentleman is sincere in what he has told me and has granted us permission to do more investigations on his land and to inform us of any more occurrences

Carroll county KY 08/14/2016

On 08/15/2016 at 2:35 am We received a report from a couple out of Carroll county KY. I head to the area in Carroll county which is on KY-55N  around a mile and a half south of Prestonville  KY after meeting up with the couple. I talked with each witness alone and got two accounts as to what they had witness but basically the same account  here is what was reported to me At 11:45pm 08/14/2016 The couple was driving north bound on KY-55 Heading to Carrollton at which time the driver came upon something standing on the shoulder of the road causing him to swerved to keep from hitting it. The driver described it looked like a very huge dark figure resembling a man the passenger stated the same. the driver also stated that he backed up to make sure it wasn't someone that was on the road and they saw nothing they yelled out a few times and suddenly they heard what appeared to be a weird howl that sent chills through there bodies at which time they left the area and after getting home decided to report this as a possible Bigfoot sighting after contacting a group they found on the internet the group dismissed it as a deer. They then came across our site and would give us a try. after being contacted I asked if they would be willing to meet me at the location and they agreed. The area is along the Kentucky river on the east side of KY-55 and a steep hill on the west side wooded I asked the couple to show me the exact spot of the incident at this point I wasn't able to find or see any evidence and the rain had started causing me to end the investigation. I returned the next day and did a complete examination of the area found what appeared be where something huge plowed thru the brush and a track way with all the rain we had in the area early this morning was hard to make out details had to stop the investigation again due to heavy rain that moved back in the area. As to the follow up with weather permitting Rodney and myself will return to the area and finish the investigation as to the witnesses I believe they did encounter some thing on KY-55 that night after    taking time out to contact someone to make sense of what happen to them that night and to the recent reports in the area.

We were the second group called on a sighting

At 2:35 am on 08/15/2016 I received a call from a couple who had thought they had a sighting. Being a Researcher it sometimes becomes necessary to go out late at night to investigate sightings and interview the witness or witnesses while the data is fresh and not contaminated. You see we were the second research group that was contacted by the witness the first group from my understanding blew them off and informed them they probably just saw a deer and hung up on them. All reports should be taken seriously and how can anyone make a determination on what one saw on the phone with out investigating ,and YES sometimes the reports come to be nothing but you have to get off your butt and investigate. that's how we learn critical information. We want the witness to contact us the  researchers and tell us what they saw or witness, sometimes we are like social workers helping some of these witnesses come to terms of what they had just witness. I personally investigate and interview all reports that come in.  If I cant I will pass on the information to the researchers in the area who I  have confidence and great respect for. So if you just going to start a research group seeking attention and fame by conducting arm chair research and not conducting research in the field or following up on reports it will not happen the Bigfoot community will weed you out. And for the researchers who take this research seriously and do what it takes to get the data I thank each and everyone of you. So many young people have taken an interest in our research and look up to us as honest and truthful role models.

Investigation in the Jefferson County proving grounds 07/28/2016

Today I spent the day in the Jefferson County proving grounds which is North of Madison In. Frist I interviewed a witness who had a sighting late last night between the hours of 10 pm to 11pm on West jpg Wood fill road, The witness stated while driving in and heading West on wood fill road about a quarter of the mile he saw what looked like a Gorilla cross the road from south to north. The witness took me to the exact spot were it cross the road and entered the woods
Above is the area the creature ran into , checking for prints wasn't easy even with all the rain fall the ground was still hard which yielded nothing definitive. After widening the search area we came along so interesting formations. also on our way out we received a vocal that freighted the quests I had with me neither one had heard that sound before and they work with wildlife every day. We were limited on time and plan on going back

Sighting of gray creature

July 14 2016 Three hours after getting home from our overnight Investigation, An acquaintance of mine who wishes to stay anonymous, was pounding on my front door as I opened the door he said dude you need to come now I asked why what's up , He said it back behind my house I just saw it. I asked him what did you see at which time he stated that he was in his back yard and saw what at first was somebody at the wood line so he yell at him at which time he got a good look an noticed it was not a somebody but something entirely not human.   He begin to described the thing he saw to me it was covered in gray hair and it stopped several times swinging his arms at some crows which appeared to be swooping in and attacking it. before it disappeared back into the woods. The witness kept insisting that we hurry to the area. I informed the witness that I would investigate the area on Friday due to being up 24 hrs. with little sleep and exhausted from heat and would not be able to conduct an investigation right then and there with a clear head. So we decided to meet on Friday. After arriving at the area today 07/15/2016 The witness and myself proceed to the place where he had seen the creature at the site we did a recreation and to the height of the creature just at around seven foot  clearly found a track way and followed it for about half mile before being forced out by lighting and rain. I will be returning tomorrow 07/16/2016 with the witness to continue the investigation.

Morgan County , Indiana

I received this today 02/10/2016 And after talking with him on the phone, He was truly sincere in his account of what he had seen as a teenager, As we talked he stated that over the years in this location he and other family members had encounters. We will meet in April in Morgan county Indiana to discuss the other incidents.

Mr. Shay . I grew up in Morgan County in Indiana on observatory rd. which is just over from goat hollow rd.
       I've had a few weird/odd encounters growing up there as a kid. The first was at the observatory when I was around 13/14 yrs. old in 1981/82 summer time, evening, sun was low at the time but plenty of light. Me and two friends were at the observatory we were setting on top of a small building/ yes we were on top of the roof. It has a frame behind the building that lets the roof slide off so we used to climb the frame and get on the roof. Kids stuff. Anyway we were setting on the roof talking and heard something walking in the woods to southeast of us. We actually thought it was one of the guys  that was on the roof little brother coming to spy on us. So we hid on the back side of the roof and when the steps got close to us we jumped up and yelled ya know to scare him. Kids stuff again. Well it wasn't his little brother walking I can tell you that for sure. It was real big, black and
 was on two legs. When we jumped up and yelled we scared it and it took off like a rocket running. You couldn't make out any features because it was in the woods but you could get glimpses as it passed small openings. It knocked a tree over which we just heard but couldn't see because it was headed down a ravine so it got below our line of sight..
   Our response was when we saw whatever it was, was we froze, scare to death, we jumped off the roof and ran back to where I lived. I'm an avid deer hunter and have hunted in that area all my life but if I hunt up there I always have an uneasy feeling of being watched..no other place I hunt gives me that..
  The other two odd things involve a really loud howls and a whistle.
