Examining evidence

Evidence is something we are extremely cautious before posting. We spend hours if not months studying and discussing evidence.  This includes castings, photos, and audio.  There is evidence that hasn't be released due to the fact we can not explain the evidence. We receive photos and audio from people who ask for our opinion and we try to give them the right answers and sometimes it get pretty nasty, but not always.

When we review our photograph and video evidence, we scrutinize every piece.  For example, last year, one of our trail cams captured a photograph of what appeared to be of a dark figure squatting in the foreground. Steven Cornell and I went to the site and recreated what we saw in the photograph. We took several photos at the same distance and height.  Steven even posed in the recreations just like it was in the photo.  After reviewing the recreations, the photos didn't match up to the one on the trail cam.  We repeated the process over and over again. Then we started to see the terrain  didn't match up. Next we checked the trail cam, and we found that the zoom was on high.  What we were seeing in the photo was a small root sticking out of the ground. By going thru this process we got our answers and debunked the original photo.
The trail cam was on high zoom the root  was 40 feet away the root was only 2 inches above the ground
 
The same scrutiny applies to castings.  There are castings that we haven't released. We carefully photograph, measure, and inspect all prints.  we also measure the track way.  This takes a considerable amount of time. Then, there's the process of making sure its not hoaxed. After the casting has dried, I begin the long process of taking measurements again, checking for hair and any deformities, and cross referencing to other prints taken in or around the area.  I also sketch the print and catalog by date, time, and location.

When audio evidence is collected, it is listened to over and over again.  Any vocalizations are cross-referenced to the known wildlife in the area.

Video evidence is the most time consuming.  Sometimes, we have hours of video evidence to review, and it takes up to a week.  This is reviewed many times.  Time is spent recording time stamps on paper to view more closely, then recovering the time stamps of importance, and finally reviewing these again to eliminate things that can be explained.

As I said earlier, we have evidence that we will not release until it has been thoroughly and rigorously investigated.  We do not jump to conclusions. This should be the first rule of collecting evidence and we would never release evidence that has alternative explanations. This how the NKBRG collects and examines evidence.  Everyone has their own way of collecting evidence so lets try and be courteous.  

    








Sasquatches, ticks and Lyme disease

Recently  I was asked a question from  Mr. Kevin Geyman, and this is what he asked.
 (Hey got a question to ask and see what you know about this. Since the sasquatches have hair all over them. What about the ticks since deer and other mammals get them. Then if that's not all if they contract Lyme disease just like the other animals. It was just some thoughts.)
Now, since there has never been a body discovered and no scientific evidence has been documented on this hominid, this is just mostly theory and opinion.  I do believe that sasquatches do become infested with ticks and lice just like all animals and contract diseases like Lyme disease. Think about it. When ticks infest a host, they cause irritation of the skin, erratic behavior, pain, and fever.  There have been countless reports of sasquatches having patches of hair missing, and, in some cases, they exhibit  erratic behavior that could be caused by fever and/or joint pain. This is only my opinion.
We must also remember primates conduct social grooming between members of their species. It is called “allogrooming” with the purpose of removing parasites and for hygiene.  Since sasquatches are hominid, they may also conduct allogrooming to remove ticks, lice, and any other parasites.
It is said that the natural resistance to ticks is because of animals' abilities to respond in a natural and immunological fashion. It stands to reason that with the stimulation from tick bites, it is possible the body will trigger a release of histamine from dermal mast cells at the site of the bite which would lead us to believe sasquatches are immune to parasites such as ticks and lice infestation. We must also take into consideration the  tick-resistance by skin thickness, coat type, coat color, hair density, and skin secretions.
Certain animals such as mice who doesn't suffer from Lyme disease are carriers. So it would seem in theory that sasquatches may not suffer from the disease, but carry it. So there is no correct answer until a body is discovered.

I admit that I do not always or even often know the answer to questions like this, so I do research like anyone else. This information was taken from the following sources:

June 24th and 25th 2017 investagation


Last weekend the 24th and 25th we conducted an investigation in one of our areas that we have had numerous occurrences. The said weekend we had numerous deep guttural growls and heavy breathing and we had objects thrown at us. and several wood knocks and we also had a large something run thru the edge of base camp and as it moved thru whatever it was it was breaking limps as it moved thru. It was a distinct bipedal foot falls we heard. This went on for about 2 hours. As far as video the vegetation was to dense for our night cameras but we able to catch everything on audio which I’m working on right now to post soon.  

Encounter in the late ninety's Trimble county KY


On June 27 2017, I was talking with a gentleman whom I have known for several years at this time the gentleman relayed a story that happen to him in the late ninety’s. He began telling me that late one night he was frog gigging at a pond while gigging he heard something coming thru the darkness breaking trees and when I asked you mean breaking limps and he replied no actually snapping them. Being alone at the pond and being startled he turned off his lamp and waited for what was coming. He stated when it broke thru the brush it stopped and he could hear it breathing heavy then it moved to the pond He stated that there was just enough moonlight to see  it squat at the edge of the pond and drink then stood up and moved back into the darkness snapping trees as it moved off. At which time he stated he got out of there and didn’t go back. The gentleman stated he didn’t know exactly what he saw and heard but it wasn’t a bear.

I have been to the said pond several times years ago and it is isolated back on a farm here in Trimble county KY.

Think about it

Heres something to pounder shaquille o'neal was 7'1" and 325 pounds and a shoe size of 23 inch also wilt chamberlain was 7'1" and 225 pounds with a shoe size of 151/2" did any of these athlete have six ' stride. shaq and wilt chamberlain were all 7 foot tall basketball players athletic men who moved well... not just a 7 foot slob in the woods. As you can see both men had different feet size. Also this quote from a respected educator I known for years think about this.. humans were fully bipedal 3.5 million years ago.. look at the volcanic ash track.we were fully bipedal when we had a brain no bigger than a chimp..  we are the most bipedal ape.. long legs short arms nice arch in our foot to help with walking.. designed to walk..we would have the longest stride in proportion to our height of any ape.... a bigfoot would have no longer or marginally longer stride length in proportion to his body.. and too long a stride would hurt locomotion...A normal six foot man's walking stride length is 2.5 feet, or 30 inches do the math

Investagation June 08 2017

June 08 2017 at approximately 8:30 pm Myself and Rodney arrived at the area where numerous reports of activity have been reported not including evidence we have collected from the area and on several investigations we have conducted Ourselves and team members have had objects thrown at us and harassed at times during the night by something. Last night as Rodney and myself arrived and set up to observe and record audio just right after dark we heard a long howl which was captured on audio. after the sun set it became extremely pitch black visibility was around 10 foot. as we sat and listen we heard what appeared to be something moving around us and then it gave out what sounded like someone clearing their throat or grunt. It was about an half hour later  I decided to do a low whoop and right after I did this there was a load snap of breaking wood then an object came flying in at us and landed close to Rodney and what ever it was began moving away from us. we listen until we couldn't hear it anymore. We stayed and observed and listen for a while longer and had no other activity so we decided to pack it up and head home. This morning I was reviewing the video that Rodney did on face book  live and observed some eye shine I will be working on enhancing the video and try to post soon. We are planning another weekend investigation in the area in the coming weeks.

Carroll County Kentucky April 29 2017

I received this by email...... live on 83 acres in Carroll County.  It's an Amish built house so we have a generator. One night last winter, my daughter and I were trying to start the generator and there was just an overall creepy feeling. It was creepy enough that we were both carrying.
First we heard something hit the barn--now admittedly, that could have been my miniature horse kicking the wall... But later we heard what sounded like a loud, very close, wood knock. And a few minutes later we heard another one a little closer. We decided to forget the generator and go on in the house.
First of all, I don't think this is enough evidence to say that we have a Bigfoot on our farm. But that along with some questionable howls I've heard some nights is enough to make me wonder.
I guess my point to this is, are there any other "sightings" or other evidence close to me? And what do I need to look for?  We have a game camera and I've thought about putting it out but I'm not sure if I want to see what it finds.   Honestly, this has made me somewhat uncomfortable. We sometimes have a feeling of being "watched" especially at night.
I hope you don't think I'm some sort of "nut case."  I'm just somebody trying to figure out what's going on. Thanks in advance for your help.   She is not a "nut case"  I have investigated several reports in this area and collected evidence.

Investagation 03/02/2017 Trimble county Kentucky

On March 02 2017 I receive a photo of a print from Mr. Jackson, I contacted Mr. Jackson and asked if we could me and can I investigate the print and the area. After meeting Mr. Jackson he and myself began our hike to the location the area was rugged after crossing several streams and climbing over some toppled trees that blocked our path we arrived at the location of the print. After taking photos and measurements of the said print we found another partial print. The print measured 14 1/2 inches long  6 inches wide at the ball of the foot and 4 1/2 at the heel of the foot with a stride of 49 inches. travelling north to south. after looking around the area a couple of structures where found. the area has many streams and ponds in the area several livestock farms was found in the area. A follow up investigation is soon to follow with several overnight investigations.

One of the structures that was found.

In the background there is a large tee pee structure we were not able to get close due to it being on private property adjacent to Mr. Jackson's property and we didn't have permission.
The print 


Thanksgiving 2015

Just received this, the person who shared this with me asked that their name and location be left confidential.   
Ok it's a long story but I'll try to make it short. A little info first. I have a tall son about 6'8. That's important. And I was working midnights but had just switched jobs and was training on evenings so I got home around 11 ish. It was around 10-12 days before Thanksgiving 2015.  I was coming down my road and was nearing my driveway. I looked upon my hill and as I was coming up my driveway I saw something very tall going around my garage and out back. The first thing I thought was "Oh my family is outside and I was all excited to see them. ( My son had this jacket that would look grayish/ white and dark at night and if he had the hood on and boots he would be very tall, & I just thought it was him) well I pull up in my driveway and get out and I'm smiling looking around for my family...I don't see them after a few minutes and my little outside dog starts to bark and I hear a pack of coyotes yapping just on the opposite hill from me ( very close) I got a little freaked out and realized my family wasn't out there. I quickly went inside. I went into my sons room he was in there in his undies playing a game. I asked him if he was just outside he said no, I told him I just saw something really BIG go around the garage where I had my chickens. He got up and took his gun and checked it out he didn't see anything. Freaked me out I thought ok maybe I just thought I saw something.  Well the very next night the same thing happened. I saw something massive going around my garage again, it was huge very muscular, cone shaped head it had some Grayish coloring around its head and shoulders but was dark everywhere else. It had a gliding walk to it very smooth. When I came up my driveway needless to say I hit the door running I did not linger I was freaked out!!!! I did not hear any coyotes this time. I can understand mistaking something once but I saw this thing twice. I know what I saw without any doubt.
There was nothing aggressive about this encounter. I measured my garage and where I thought it's head reached and this would put this creature at about 9 foot tall. It reminded me of the gorilla picture on Sasquatch chronicles only bigger, I couldn't make out any facial features and not much below its waste. The following Spring 2016. I found out my renters had had several sightings and aggressive ones. When they saw red eye shine and something banged on the trailer. This occurred the week of Thanksgiving 2015 about the same time as mine but I didn't know about it until the Spring. It's on my property but down the road a little bit from my place. Needless to say I felt vindicated when I heard of their stories. I can say I do not go out after dark by myself. 😊

Shapeshifting, telportation and cloaking

So I was talking with my wife the other day about my usual bigfoot stuff. The topic to shapeshifting, teleportation and cloaking. I told her if you believe in this aspect of the bigfoot phenomenon you must believe in the U.F.O. connection. My disagreed. This was her thought process and I thought it was worth sharing.

I told her that the U.F.O connection was the only way they could use technology more sophisticated then what we possess. My wife reminded me that cloaking was a defense mechanism used by many creatures far less sophisticated than us, that, while I was focused on the external use of technology, that I had dismissed the power of the mind. A mind that may be far less advanced then our own, but capable of things we simply are not. There are various chameleon species on our planet that can almost disappear.

I acknowledged this and said ok, but what about teleportation? Surely this is a feet of technology. She again, said not necessarily. Some scientist believe that if humans fully unlock there brains potential, telekinesis would be a possible. There is a tremendous amount of Sci-fi lore surrounding this concept, and through not proven nether is bigfoot, Yet. And if one can control physical objects with there minds, is it a stretch that one could control smaller objects, perhaps individual atoms or even particles at the sub-atomic level. perhaps it is possible to control one's own particles. In effect, teleporting ourselves. I said I cant see a primate doing this. Then she reminded me that primates exist on a different levels. For example a Gibbon, the only "lesser ape" is still a primate like us. So when you have a creature so unknown as bigfoot, we can not rule out its capabilities. If you subscribe to the ancient alien theory, bigfoot was engineered do special things, things unlocked that perhaps weren't unlocked with humans. I said now we are back to U.F.O.s again, she said not necessarily . Many believe that the rotation of the galaxies only bring our "visitors" around every 4000 years, Just because you believe in the ancient alien theory dose not mean we are being visited now.

I said fair enough. What about portals and shape shifting. She reminded me of string theory that basically says that there are an indefinite number of universes that exist simultaneously at any given time. Who is to say that a more advance version of ourselves or even bigfoot dose not exist on another plane or in another universe that creates these portals between plans.

Is shapeshifting so far-fetched. This idea has been used in some of the oldest cultures in the world. Our ancestors didn't lie or make this up. They may have not had the words to describe what they were seeing, and maybe we don't either.

These conversations with my wife are great and she keeps me open to all possibilities. Its worth noting that she believes none of this including bigfoot but has been with me and witness some things she cannot explain. She says she enjoys playing devils advocate and forcing me to think outside the box.
So here's something to think about.....
Do we really know or understand what we are seeing, or are as flawed as our ancestors?

This is a post I do not enjoy making

This is a post I do not enjoy making. We as researchers think that we are above being hoaxed. That it cant happen to us because we can "spot it a mile away." Well, let me tell you that it can happen to anyone. Yesterday, I posted audio from an email received from a good friend of mine. He was genuinely excited. He has sent me recordings in the past. I posted the audio thinking it had been authentic. I had no reason to doubt him. A while after, I was tagged in a post calling m...e a thief. The audio I posted apparently belonged to a researcher Mike Paterson from Sasquatch Ontario. I cant seem to tag him. Anyway, I stood my ground when this guy called me out, and I was very defensive having been called a thief. Turns out, I was in the wrong. The audio does indeed seem to be stolen. The friend that sent me the audio was also hoaxed as well, and I will be copying and pasting his post he sent me at the end of this. I would like to apologize to Mike Paterson as well as my own followers and fellow researchers. I have certainly learned some humility as well as received a kick in the pants to vet evidence I receive more thoroughly in the future. I sincerely hope that this incident does not undermine your confidence in me and that you will continue to follow my work in the future. Thank you. Here is my friend, Donald W Kaylor's words he sent me earlier regarding the audio.
Hi my name is Don Kaylor from grant county KY i email Thomas Shay Audio Recording's through Gmail I recorded some strange sounds I have never heard in my entire life.come to find out my recording might have been tampered with buy a friend of mine that was playing a joke on me. He gose in the woods with me his name is Shane Owens I think he might have taken my recorder from the location took it to his house and recorded these sounds strange sounds I have all kinds of audio recordings but I never heard anything like this so Tom last night sent me a link to listen to mr. Patterson's audio recordings and it sounded almost identical so I started questioning is it really mine or is it really his so I was thinking what Eles could have happen so I call my friend Shane Owens because he new where I set my recorder.because we were going through the recorder listening to The Sounds he knew right where that sounds were and he said listen to what we have and that's when I said holy s*** that sounds weird did he go get my recorder did he record this off of YouTube I don't know I can't get no answers out of him he won't answer his phone or his Door I'm just assuming that because it almost sounds identical so I'm apologizing to Thomas Shay Rodney Steve Winn from Northern Kentucky Bigfoot research group and I apologize to mr Patterson because it sounds just like the Audio I heard last night but I will find out the truth

Troutman ,North Carolina 02/2017

Steve Winn
Unexpected class b experience:
I stayed at my 3rd cousins house in Troutman, NC this week because her mother (my 2nd cousin) passed. They have a 3 story house, the basement being a walkout, and her bedroom has a deck on the same side of the walkout. That side of the house sits on a ridge that faces a heavy wooded horrer with a ridge on the other side, prolly 1/2 mile to the other side. In all, there are several hundred acres of prime hunting woods with a creek running betw...een the ridges.
I stepped out of the walkout at about 1am Friday morning to smoke. They are out in the boonies, so it's very quiet at night. From the other ridge I heard several howls coming from 2 different directions, as if they were communicating back and forth....they were definitely not coyotes. After this went back and forth for about a minute, a distinct knock came from the ridge the house sits on. I would say it had to be within 200 yards of the house...it gave me chills. It was bright and clear out m, so I strained my old eyes and ears unsuccessfully to pick up movement. After a few minutes of no reply to the knock, I went back inside and went to sleep.
Since they don't smoke in the house, I knew my cousin had stepped out on her deck over the years at night to do so. So when I mentioned it she said "He'll yeah, I know we have them....at least once a week I'll hear them howl at night from the deck." While outside having coffee with her on the first floor deck at about 8am, we heard a faint return howl responding to her next door neighbors rooster calls. We both looked at each other and she said "was it that?" I said yep, sure enough.
She then proceeded to tell me a story about a kids toboggan that had been laying on the ground off of the walk out patio for weeks. One morning the toboggan appeared on the patio table with a stick stuck thru it, and two other sticks in what she called an "x" shape with the toboggan stick bisecting the "x". She said something to her kids (22 and 17), and they were clueless about it adding "why in the hell would they do that anyway" with a laugh. I had to agree. She had never said anything to them about her suspicions or fear of any squatches, so pranking her was dismissed.
So....this development was completely unexpected. Next time I go back to her house, I'm bringing a voice recorder and taking one of the boys for an exploration hike!

1985 Kidwell pike ecounter

Today I spoke to a former Trimble County resident who had a class A encounter in the spring of 1985. Mr. Proctor who was thirteen at the time described what happen that spring afternoon.
Mr. Proctor stated at the time he was on Kidwell pike with his two hunting dogs at which time both dogs took off in a deep hollow at which he described as spooky and eerie and would never hunt in the hollow. the dogs began braking as if they had something cornered then all at ounce the dogs began yelping as if something was attacking them, after a few minutes the dogs came out of the hollow and ran passed him at a full run heading home Mr. Proctor stated that he turned to follow them and he heard something behind him and as he turned around and saw a creature coming over the bank of the creek and onto the road and cleared the road in three steps and stopping at a fence on the other side of the road where it stopped momentary and looked strait at Mr. Proctor before placing his hand on the fence an pushing it down and stepping over it and moving thru a field and disappearing. Mr. Proctor described the creature as huge covered with matted hair. He described the face as human covered in hair like a wild mountain man and the head appeared kind of tear shaped and the nose was flat and the eyes had a orange tint, the color of the hair was reddish brown. at this time he turned and ran home and told his mom. Later that year he stated that he was on a ridge behind the barn on the farm and heard the most terrifying screams that he has never heard before. I have research this area on a number of occasions and interviewing several people who have had encounters in the area. even today if you travel down Kidwell pike day or night it is extremely eerie.

Steve Winn report 01/21/2017

Since Tom was out in the field last night, and on little sleep today, I figured I'd step up to the plate and give a report on today's investigation.
January 21, 2017 at our bread and butter location:
We haven't been in there since last spring, and it didn't disappoint today. Tom, his son Jacob, and I went in at about 2pm. Rodney was working out of town, and we was waiting on Steve Cornell, but his boyfriend forbid him from going or something.
On the way in Jacob noticed an old junked refrigerator had been moved. It's been there for years...always in the same spot and orientation, but it wasn't like he saw it before. At the gifting area on the crown of the hill, the famous green turtle stuffed animal was gone, and the sock puppet that was last seen shoved into a Y branch at 12 feet high was no where to be found either. The rubber chicken had reappeared, carefully placed in a tree at about 6 foot. There's a long history with the rubber chicken, turtle, and sock puppet disappearing and showing back up at this particular spot. This is also an area where we leave food treats. We made our way in deeper on the other side of the crown. The fallen leaves were thick, but the ground was very soft from the rain we had this week....so we're really looking down before we step.
Right on the old logging road headed down the hill, Tom saw it plain as day. A juvenile footprint in soft ground. The heel is very well defined, and toes are there...nice little left flat foot. Measured at 5.5" x 3" which is right in proportion with larger prints. There's something with little flat feet walking around barefooted in an area where larger flat feet of similar proportion have been casted. This is within 100 yards of Tom's best, up close sighting and the same place where Tom and Rodney had a bluff charge several years ago. Close by was a collection of limbs and sticks stacked within a stand of cedars. We tried to debunk this as dead fall, but it was pretty obvious they were placed. We saw several X's throughout the day that couldn't be reasonably explained either.
On the way down the backside of the hill, Jacob found one of our little chickens left behind at the gift g area in the spring. The little chicken is just a small squeeky toy that sounds like a crow call. It's a small version of the rubber chicken. It was right in the middle of the logging road, and was there for quite some time. It was a good find...located approx 100 yards from where it was last seen. Along the way down the hill, we spotted a 30 foot long by 5" diameter limb thay was perfectly balaned in the Y of a tree. We could not debunk this as dead fall because it would have snapped in two because it would have had to fall from at least 40 feet up and wpuld have snapped upon impact. Upon further investigation, it had obvious signs of being lying on the forest floor. We tried everything possible to debunk, was is was so obvious this limb was placed there. We proceeded down to the end of the small ridge like we always do. There's a very high dollar tree stand at the ridge point that was abandoned after the user got spooked several years ago. They won't even go back to get it....I don't hunt, but it's very high quality and makes for a good observation point.
Along the way between the hill crown and the end of the small ridge, we caught a rock clack, and a knock. We stayed at the end of the ridge for a spell just kind of taking it in. While discussing another strage tree structure, a grunt like sound sound came in from the adjacent ridge to the left....it was close...the next ridge is fairly visible this time of year. Less than 1000 yards.
We made our way out from there with polly 30 minutes to spare before dusk. Jacob and I totally felt like we were being watched on the way out....I kept looking behind us. This place is spooky...day or night.
We got back to our trucks just before dusk...with a little time to spare. We hadn't seen each other in a while, so we was just standing around reviewing the days adventure and catching up a bit. We were maybe a quarter mile from where we just came, and BAM....a big, loud growl like howl came in from where we just left. Dude, we swung out heads at each other like....wow! It was powerful! A few minutes later, another howl, and a small pack of coyotes (maybe 4 or 5) kicked in. Something was going down where we just left 30 minutes prior. Sounded like one was hurt, and the others were trying to scare something away. There was another howl from a ridge over...pretty faint, and they all stopped.
That first howl was close and powerful. The other two was a little further out...but something shut those coyoyes down.
We try to just give you our evidence and let you make your own oponions.
Great day back in the old school area.

01/21/2017

After leaving the research area at dusk Steve Winn and myself was standing by our vehicles discussing the days investigation and from the same area we had just left heard a loud and menacing vocal which made us both stop and take noticed and several minutes later a pack of coyotes began and it appeared the coyotes were trying to fight something off for at least several minutes then a small yelp and another loud vocal then silence

August 31 1830

Received this from a dear friend Dated August 31 1830 from the National Journal Washington D.C.  In it is an article which states (Some of the papers have contained an account of an enormous beast. which made it appearance recently in Kentucky, whose roaring could be heard at a great distance and whose voracious appetite was such to give the alarm to the farmers for the safety of their cattle.)

Shelby county KY 2009

On January 9 2017 I received a email and a contact number from a gentleman who resides in Ohio but once live in Shelby county Kentucky in 2008- 2011. After contacting the gentleman who wishes to remain anonymous (name on file) He began to tell me what his family and himself experienced while living in the Cedarmore area of southeastern Shelby county. (this is his own words)  He began to tell me that during the spring 2009 one evening with his family and several friends they had built a fire and was setting around and enjoying the night and around 11:00 we started hearing what appeared to be something in the distance walking around, being surrounded by dense woods everyone dismissed it as deer several hours later after things started winding down we started to pack up that's when  I noticed a figure in the low fire light just inside the tree line ( he stated that the figure appeared to be around seven foot in height and from the out line very broad )as if it was just watching us. Every time when we would try to approach it would disappear in to the woods and then we would have objects thrown at us. Then when we was making it back to the house we could hear it moving along side us at times trees could be heard breaking. after returning to my house and everyone had left . I have to house dogs that cant wait to be let out but that night the two dogs would not leave the house that night. He also stated that several times during the time that he lived there he or a family member would catch a glimpse of a huge figure on the property on a couple of occasions there were we heard some strange howls and large objects thrown at the house during the night  and in 2011 I received a job offer in Ohio and couldn't wait to move. I asked why wait so long to come forward and why did you contact me  he replied really who would believe me and I contacted you because I saw you on TV.  I talked with the gentleman for almost three hours on the phone getting more information on the occurrences that happen during the time he lived there the location in Shelby county name of the owner of the property and contact information of the witness he stated that when or if we get permission to investigate the property he would like to join us to get some understanding on the events. I will be doing a follow up on this report due to the fact that I took notes I took during the interview.
