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.
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.
