Why Adrian Erickson won’t reveal his killer Bigfoot videos. First of all, it’s not true that Erickson can’t show his videos until Ketchum’s DNA project is completed. He can release them anytime he wants. But Erickson wants to wait for DNA results to reveal his videos, some of which he has been sitting on for 6 years now.
If Erickson were to release his videos now, they would cause a firestorm of controversy. The professional skeptics in the scientific community and media would rampage all over the videos, and the inevitable verdict, as with the P-G film, is that the videos would be denounced as hoaxes. The skeptics and scofftics would trash Erickson, Dennis Pfohl, Leila Hadj-Chikh and the rest, digging up dirt on them to trash their lives and reputations just like they did to Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin and the rest.
Erickson knows they are going to trash his videos, but he thinks they will stand up better with DNA evidence to back them up. Erickson’s position, which I agree with, is that no matter how good Bigfoot videos are these days, they will always be accused of being hoaxes. It’s not possible to produce the “good enough” photo or video that the skeptics demand because it doesn’t exist in any possible universe.
Wally Hersom, financier behind the Olympic Project (OP), revealed for first time as the very wealthy benefactor of Dr. Melba Ketchum’s DNA project. Wally Hersom is the money man behind the Olympic Project. He is a very wealthy man, a multimillionaire. He has much more money than Adrian Erickson of the Erickson Project. I do not know how he made his money. For some time now, we have known that Dr. Ketchum had a mysterious benefactor who wished to remain anonymous.
We just learned his name from a confidential source the other day. It is Wally Hersom. Hersom is funding the MtDNA and NuDNA sequencing for Ketchum’s project (KP). The NuDNA costs up to $11,500 per sample, and hardly any submitters can afford it, so someone needs to pay for it, and Wally’s the man. We have heard nothing but good things about Hersom, and we think he is playing a positive role in the community in general.
But as you can see, the OP and the KP have profoundly deep ties. This is why Derek Randles and Justin Smeja are always saying that they can’t say this or that due to some NDA. Both of them are all wrapped up in NDA’s due to the tangled mess of the OP and KP. The NDA’s are due to a business relationship.
In short, the OP and KP hope to make money off the discovery of Bigfoot. In Ketchum’s case, the path to the ca$$$$h seems clearer. I can’t see how Hersom is going to make his money back, especially if he signed one of Ketchum’s ugly NDA’s. But that’s probably what’s motivating Hersom’s NDA’s. He’s probably trying to recoup some of his investment.
Olympic Project probably went to Sierra Kills site immediately after the shootings. Based on an interview with a source with deep connections to the OP who must remain anonymous because they could possibly be under an NDA, I conclude that it is very likely that the OP went to the Sierra Kills almost immediately after they were notified of the shootings.
Derek Randles of the OP has said that the OP could not make it down there until this August, 10 months after the shooting, because it cost too much money, and the OP could not afford to go there. The reasons why they could not go for nearly a year were because it cost $3,000, there was snow on the ground, and he runs a couple of businesses. However, his statement does not appear to be true.
We know this because the source told us that as soon as the OP heard about the Sierra Kills, they immediately put plans together for a recovery operation. So it appears that constraints such as lack of money, Randles’ two businesses, snow on the ground, etc. were not operative. The OP are known for good reason as the “boots on the ground” guys in Bigfoot research. They go anywhere, do anything, and don’t let weather or terrain stop them.
Further, it is dubious that Justin Smeja, the shooter of the two Bigfoots, went back to the site alone as he has said. For one thing, he changed his story. First he said he went back alone two weeks later. Then he said he went back with the driver a few days later.
But it does not appear that he could have gone back up alone. Immediately after the killings of the Bigfoots, he was not in any position to go back, and he was not going up there anytime soon. Suddenly he ends up going back there. Put it all together. Smeja, the driver and the OP must have all gone back to the Sierra Kills site very soon after the Bigfoots were killed. It’s the only conclusion that makes any sense.
Sierra Kills Bigfoot bodies or parts were probably secreted away by the OP and KP to protect investments of time and money. Let’s think about this. The bodies or body parts in the Sierra Kills, if revealed to the public and media right away at the time of discovery, could conceivably have put the kibosh on the KP, thereby wasting the money Hersom sunk into it while upstaging Ketchum and essentially wasting her time and money too.
It was essential that the bodies or body parts be secreted away and not revealed to the public in order to protect Hersom and Ketchum’s time and money that they had sunk into the project. It’s understandable that folks want to protect their investments of time and money, but in this case, it has resulted in a delay of the potential discovery of Bigfoot by probably over a year and possibly longer. As always in Bigfootery, science takes a back seat to ca$$$$h.
According to the BFRO homepage under “Questions of the Month,” OP financier Wally Hersom has a gigantic Bigfoot photo in his home. If you walk into Wally Hersom’s (The OP’s benefactor) home, you can see a huge blown-up photo of a Bigfoot. The photo is called “Big Phil.” Previously, it was thought that the photo was taken with the OP’s own trailcams, however, we have now discovered that it was given to Hersom by an unknown person who shot the photo. The owner has apparently not given Hersom the right to release the photo.
The OP has not released the photo on their webpage for a variety of reasons. One reason is that project leader Derek Randles is uncertain if it is a photo of a real Bigfoot or if it is a hoax instead. However, the photo is said to be extremely impressive, possibly as impressive as the P-G film.
OP lied about solid Bigfoot evidence, said they would release it immediately to the public but never did. The OP always insisted that if they ever got solid evidence of Bigfoots’ existence such as a body or a part of a body, they would immediately go public with it. So what happened when they got at least a part of a body, and possibly much more? They secreted it away to Dr. Melba Ketchum’s DNA study, where it’s now all locked up with NDA’s, book deals, etc.
It’s all about the ca$$$$h. Some longtime supporters of the OP are disgusted at this line they have taken and consider them to be sellouts. In reality, they’ve just got Bigfoot fever.
The OP probably never would have released the story about the Sierra Kills. My source has told me that they feel the OP was probably never going to release the story of Smeja killing the two Bigfoots. Instead, they were going to release the information about the steak as part of Ketchum’s project, but they were not going to tell anyone where it came from. The source said that Randles is probably lying when he said that the OP was going to tell this story in whole after all the papers and whatnot were said and done. Why tell this scurrilous tale? What for?
The source said that if not for my reporting, the story never would have broken in the first place, unless, that is, some other person broke the story, which is uncertain.
Criminal complaint lodged against Justin Smeja in a city near Sacramento. We have managed to cultivate sources in a police department near Sacramento in the town where Smeja lives. A call to the police department the other day revealed that a citizen had lodged an anonymous complaint against Smeja for “double homicide” in Plumas County, California, in October 2010 in relation to the Sierra Kills.
The sources would not elaborate on whether or not the complaint had been followed up. Part of the problem with the complaint was its anonymous nature.
Bigfoots have hunched backs to give them powerful muscles in the chest and shoulders. One thing about Bigfoots that is little known is that they have a sort of a hunched back. In fact, this is a diagnostic sign of them. One wonders the reason for the hunched back. The hunched back serves to give them much more weight on the huge shoulders and upper back and also pushes a lot of the weight onto the huge chest.
Why Bigfoots walk flatfooted. Bigfoots have a flatfooted walk, whereas humans do not. The midtarsal break and the flatfooted walk that the Bigfoots have is necessary. One of our sources spoke with a professor who said that the flatfooted walk, the midtarsal break and the bent-kneed gait are necessary in order to support all that weight. If they did not walk they way they did, the professor said, the weight of their bodies would be so much that it would break a non-bendable human type foot.
