Craig Phillips witnesses Rick Dyer’s Bigfoot: the interview.
Rick Dyer’s head of security, Craig Philips, has been staying with Rick recently. Rick got a call saying that the body was going to be moved, and he asked Craig to come with him to see the body as it was moved. The video lasts 11 minutes, is very interesting and can be seen on Youtube. Christopher Noel has described it as “very credible testimony.”
Locale where the body is stored: He said once you find out where the body was kept, you would never believe it. It’s amazing that it would be kept in such a place. He thought it would be kept in some secret military place, but that’s not the case.
Heavy security around the building:Looking at the building, you would wonder why there is so much heavy security around the building, but apparently the owners of the body are not taking any chances.
Enlarged doors at the facility:Some of the doors in the facility appear to be too large for the building itself. It was as if they were constructed separately in order to house this body.
Small crane used to move the body: An interesting detail is that a small crane of the sort that is used to move extremely obese people was used to move the body. I thought that was an interesting detail.
Large truck apparently specially outfitted to house the body: He said that the truck appeared to be specially designed to house the body. There are hooks or rings in the sides of the truck to hold the gurney in place so it won’t slip around. Apparently whoever owns the truck went to great lengths to specially outfit it to house this body.
Presence of US government officials at the scene: US government officials were at the scene. Rick said that he and Craig wanted to observe the body being moved, and these officials nodded their heads to give the go-ahead.
Presence of emotion in Craig: Craig appears to show genuine emotion as he describes the body. At one point, he seems to tear up. Craig says he could not sleep the next day.
Body language: Craig does not look at the camera much during the interview. Instead he looks down much of the time. Make of it what you will.
The interview lasts 11 minutes. There is a large and extremely stupid COPYRIGHT RICK DYER watermark running across the video which seems completely unnecessary. The watermark is huge and runs right across Craig’s face for most of the interview. It pretty nearly wrecks the video.
One thing that is interesting are the curious details that Craig revealed above. Craig doesn’t seem like a rocket scientist, so I have a hard time believing that he thought up those obscure little details on his own. Is it possible that Rick thought up those fancy little details and fed them to Craig to say? That makes a lot more sense, but I wonder about even that. Rick made up a story about enlarged doors, a small crane and a specially outfitted truck down to the last detail? I don’t know.
Dyer skeptics may wish to watch this video too for whatever reason, as it’s part of the story. The skeptics are already saying that Craig is lying and just saying whatever Rick told him to say because Rick gave him a job and a place to stay.
Argument that Craig may be lying in the video. From the comments, an argument that suggests that Craig is lying for Rick:
Well, anyone can see the video now. Observations:
- Phillips never looks into the camera.
- There are many cuts, as though Dyer has prompted him with talking points like “in this part mention the haters getting their due.”
- It’s in a facility we apparently would recognize (“you won’t believe it”) but wouldn’t have expected, meaning it’s not a traditional military or government facility. (This is a familiar Dyer talking point meant to keep you from looking too hard.) However, there are a LOT of security people around, and they “may” have been there for the move or maybe they’re always there…what kind of place that would “surprise” you has a lot of security around normally?
- There were high-ranking officials who gave Dyer special permission to stay through the move after gesturing to him that it was time to leave. Why would that have been an issue? It just reinforces that Dyer has special pull.
- They used a crane to move the body like they use to move obese people, and rolled the gurney along under it? Why wouldn’t they just roll it out on the gurney?
- Lots of “special” stuff…special lift, special doors, special truck.
- He never ONCE describes the body. He just says he saw it and he was affected by it. How about some details to show you actually were impressed by it? Of course, you’re no Musky Allen.
Remember too that Phillips just got to Vegas, so he was suddenly a great person to make a corroborating video. Also, Dyer was supposed to be on a trip but got gout…very lucky he wasn’t on that costly trip when the body got moved, huh? And he apparently is getting around fine on those basketball feet. Beware of Dyer sucking people into a false close relationship and getting them to lie for him. He has done this for years.
Flood of fake information coming out about Dyer. Most of this stuff seems to be coming from the Dyer haters, who are flooding us with hoaxes, fake info and lies about Rick. At this point, Dyer’s haters are hoaxing more than Rick ever will in his entire life. Their reasons for doing this are uncertain. Are they trying to make Rick look bad? Are they trying to make me look bad? Are they trying to destroy my credibility as a “guy who will publish anything?”Are they just doing this for shits and giggles? I don’t get it.
Journalists hate scumbags who deliberately feed them false information. We want to see all their throats slit. They’re the scourge of the profession. The profession can’t even function when you have idiots flooding journalists with hoaxes, lies and fake information. It just destroys everything.
No journalist can ever hoax, knowingly participate in a hoax or deliberately spread lies (obviously this happens all the time in the political realm, so we will leave that part out for now). Once you do that, you are gone. No one will ever listen to you anymore.
Accusation that I don’t fact check my posts. This is an interesting accusation. This site just prints whatever rumors are flying around Bigfootery at the moment. We often don’t try to figure out if they are true or not. We just throw them out there and let you decide. With a lot of this stuff, there is no way to check it out anyway.
How am I supposed to check out a photo of the body storage site? I can only check it out with someone who has been there, and I don’t know anyone who has been there. How can I check out the fake photos of Rick’s body? I don’t know anyone who has seen the body, and those that have seen it, won’t talk. Furthermore, in this field, once you go to fact-check something, a lot of people are going to lie to you. So there isn’t even a good way to follow up a lot of these rumors, photos and whatnot. It’s a hall of mirrors and a miasma of fog.
No evidence that Dyer is moving to Santa Rosa. Although Dyer told Rhett Mullis in March that he was moving to Santa Rosa, the word now is that we have no way of knowing whether he actually intends to do that or not. Dyer is notoriously unstable and he changes his mind constantly.
Body has apparently been moved out of state and quite a ways away. The video above shows Craig Phillips witnessing the moving of the body. But we never knew where it was going. It turns out now that the body is going out of the state and quite a ways away. The decision appears to have been out of Rick’s hands and was possibly made by investors.
Story about the fake body location photo. I got this from Melissa Graeme, who is said to be a Dyer hater. We were really worried about her as most stuff from haters turns out to be hoaxes and lies, so we checked her out a lot. I worked with one of my colleagues on this.We talked about whether or not to run it and decided it was harmless to run the photo.
She told me she got it from someone who said they saw the body. It turns out that she got it from Greg Cannon, who she describes as close to Dyer. She is not sure why they gave it to her. She thinks maybe to see if she would pass it on. She now thinks the whole story is a crock because she says Dyer’s people are putting out fake information.
Perhaps Dyer’s people are putting out false info about the body location in order to throw people off the trail so to speak. Perhaps Melissa herself cooked this up to make everyone look bad, but that is less doubtful. This whole thing is a mess of smoke and mirrors and no one knows what to believe.
It is true that Musky has been putting out a lot of false information about the body location lately, apparently in order to throw people off the trail.
Who is Greg Cannon? Greg is the artist who did the first full length drawing of Dyer, so he is in deep with him. Why is Greg deliberately spreading fake photos of the body location?
Skeptic argument about why this is a hoax – the Dyer team is now lying as part of a “strategy against the haters.” Basically the argument is that now that Rick has decided its ok for him and his hanger’s-on to lie as much as they want to as part “the campaign against the haters,” this muddles up the story considerably. Once we know that Dyer and his followers are lying at least part of the time as part of a strategy, this tends to taint everything they say, and we wonder if this is a lie too.
I agree that it is most unfortunate the Dyer has convinced people that lying is a great idea as a way to attack the haters. This was a very bad move on his part and tends to taint a lot of testimony coming out of their camp. Similarly, profiting off this story was also a very bad move as it automatically throws up red flags of possible hoaxing with monetary gain as a motive.
From my comments thread:
The problem with this whole story is that – like you say – everyone in the Dyer camp says its OK to put out false info to cover the real info. Unfortunately that is a tactic of convenience for hoaxers, and now Dyer has all his team that’s left willingly telling lies because he’s convinced them its part of the game against the haters.
This characteristic of Dyer’s – being an extreme pathological liar and being able to get others to lie for him – is something you hear from people who predate this hoax and why so many people immediately wrote him off this time and have been so loud in opposing him. He has been known to get people close to him to lie if he thinks they are weak enough or worshiping enough to carry it out. I feel bad for Craig Phillips, who is Dyer’s latest discovery and is certain to find he has been used for Dyer’s own benefit.
Robert, I think if you reached out to some earlier Team Tracker members, from the old group, you might find that this whole story is following familiar patterns but with a new group of gullible followers who aren’t aware of Dyer’s extreme pathologies.
That includes the Facebook guys, who I have come to believe are victims. Musky, on the other hand, has been too involved in viciously defending Dyer and spreading disinformation (despite an “NDA”) to be let off so easily. Some of their radio banter is so rehearsed its laughable (“Hey Rick I just got photos Hank being loaded onto the truck!”), and he appears to have been assigned to Jack Barnes (and you, I dare say) as the “smart one” to keep everyone in line while Dyer goes insane.
My source at Minnow Films, UK. I broke this story on December 12, 2013 when I reported that a source working at Minnow Films UK told me that Rick Dyer had shot a Bigfoot during the filming of a new movie by Morgan Matthews. There had been some rumors going around for some time before, but nothing had been confirmed.
I have been asked how I know this source is real. I will tell you that is a woman, but I can’t tell you more than that as she fears for her job. She won’t talk to me anymore as she thinks I have leaked too much information anyway and I might get her fired. I don’t know she is real, and I never talked to her on the phone. All communications were by email.
Skeptics are saying that she may not even exist and instead it may just be Dyer playing a trick and pretending to be her. I think that is dubious. I have confirmed that a woman by that name works for Minnow. Furthermore, all her emails came from a minnow.uk email address, which I have confirmed is the email address that they use. I also traced the IP back to London, UK. I find it hard to believe that Dyer somehow spoofed a minnow.uk email address.
She originally leaked the story because she thought it was so important that she was upset that it was being delayed so long and she wanted to bump up the showing schedule. The movie was intended to be shown in November, and she thought that was way too long for such a killer story. As it turned out, the publicity engendered by my leak bumped the story up from November to spring.
Could she have been lying to get me to promote the film? I suppose, but that seems dubious. Could she have been misinformed about what really happened in the film. Maybe, but why would someone at Minnow believe that a Bigfoot was shot in the movie when that never even happened? Doesn’t make sense.
Argument that the Bigfoot in the Tent Video does not look like the leaked still out of Shooting Bigfoot. This is an interesting argument is used to say that the whole thing is a hoax. But that means that Rick had two different stunt men wearing two different costumes over a period of a couple of days. Two of the best costumes designed by mankind, too. Hard to believe. On the other hand, I have no answer to the question about why the Tent Video looks different from Hank in the movie, and neither do my colleagues who are also believers. It’s a good argument for the skeptic side.
Argument about “3 minutes of HD video shot by BBC of a Bigfoot.” Rick said that the movie would include 3 minutes of the Bigfoot in the Tent Video eating the ribs at the tree. That never materialized in the film, and people are now using this to say that this is proof that Rick is hoaxing.
However, when my Minnow source contacted me in December, she told me that there was 3 minutes of HD video shot at the time of the Tent Video, shot by the BBC (Morgan) in the next tent. So she told me the same story as Rick told. Why would she believe that footage exists if it doesn’t? Doesn’t make sense.
That both she and Rick independently agree that the footage exists implies to me that it does exist, but for some strange reason, it never showed up in the film. Why it never showed up, I have no idea, and it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
Photos of a dead moose and Bigfoot tracks from South Fork River, Utah in the Wasatch Range. Very interesting photos here. The first photo showed a moose with its neck broken lying on the ground. Bigfoot tracks were found nearby. Investigators went out and looked into the case and were excited about what they found. Almost the entire area is on private property.
The photo below shows the Bigfoot tracks found near the dead moose.
A video of the case follows below.
