Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

I just received a message about a press release made by the Sanger Paranormal Society. The PR states that:

“Potentially the Most Convincing Evidence of Bigfoot Since the Patterson Film of 1967

We have an full upper body impression including half of its face On the passenger side window of a pickup truck

And on the drivers side window, the Nostrils, Nose and Lips of a Bigfoot”

Jeffrey Gonzalez from Sanger Paranormal Society is a regular here on GhostTheory. The press release issued by him claims of extraordinary evidence for the quest to prove Bigfoot’s existence. If in fact this is true, that they gathered a full upper torso imprint of Bigfoot, then this will turn the science world on its head. I’ve corresponded with Jeffrey for a few years now about UFOs and Bigfoot. Our conversations are light and mainly discuss cattle mutilation or Bigfoot prints.

What this PR release promises, is something that could be a double edge sword for the Sanger team. Jeffrey and his team are claiming this to be the best evidence of Bigfoot since the Patterson/Gimlin film. That’s a very presumptuous claim. Remember what happened to Biscardi’s credibility in the field of Cryptozoology after his last press release.
Not to say that Sanger Paranormal is trying to pull one over the world, but they must remember that if this evidence turns out to be just a couple of smudges of dust on a car’s window and there are no prints visible, then they will have a hard time keeping their credibility.

I’m waiting to hear from Jeffrey at this point. Maybe a bit more details on the evidence would be ideal for GhostTheory and its readers.

For Immediate Release

Potentially the Most Convincing Evidence of Bigfoot Since the Patterson Film of 1967

We have an full upper body impression including half of its face On the passenger side window of a pickup truck

And on the drivers side window, the Nostrils, Nose and Lips of a Bigfoot

We will contact you to confirm your attendance

What: No, it’s not a Bigfoot in a Freezer and we are not affiliated with those guys in any way. This evidence was captured during an expedition in the High
Sierra’s of California during the Memorial Day weekend of 2011. There were a total of 5 people in attendance who made the discovery. Three of those people

1. Is an award winning High School Principal with a Masters Degree, Formerly a Science Teacher and a former investigator for

2. Correctional Officer for 19 years and is Employed at a prison in California. Was featured on a Episode of Monster Quest titled” the Sierra Sasquatch”.

3. Is a Employe at AT&T Telephone. Associates Degree in Electronics. Founder of the

Also, a 14 year Forensic Specialist who is friends with 2 of the people mentioned above was called out to come and take photos and swab For DNA……

This location where the evidence was captured is known for heavy Bigfoot activity And has been regularly visited by the investigators mentioned above.

  • Not sure if I’m allowed to post links to outside sites, but Cryptomundo just posted the a shot of the supposed Bigfoot image on the window.

    Not really sure what to say on this one. But since I live in Fresno I’ll try to hit up the press conference and see what it’s all about.

    Actually, recent progression in DNA research has lead to a process where DNA can be lifted off of things you just touch, the more porous, the better. They are using these techniques over at TIGHAR (The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery) to test objects they have found that could possibly lead to the conclusion of the Amelia Earhardt mystery.

    DNA research has come a long way in the last decade!

    Thanks, whipthorn; I did not know that.

  • whipthorn

    Cool link Michael, thanks! My gut reaction is “hoax”, and if I had a more defined picture I could probably give a few good reasons why. But based just on that photo, it looks too detailed to be authentic. Here’s my reasoning:

    a) Assuming a sasquatch is not a completely flat faced creature, you would expect to see more smudging on the window marks due to having to change the angle of your head in order to peer around in the truck, and work around your nose and forehead creating odd angles.

    b) I can see the bridge of the nose, and that seems odd to me. The majority of people and apes I’ve seen have some topographical features that would interfere with pressing the bridge of the nose onto the glass. Including the brow ridge and the cartlidge in the nose.

    But I’m not an expert, so take that with a grain of salt.

  • “If in fact this is true, that they gathered a full upper torso imprint of Bigfoot, then this will turn the science world on its head.”

    No it won’t. If thousands of footprints, dozens of hair samples and a really decent film didn’t turn the science world on its head, then neither will this. In the end, it’s just an impression, smudges. If tracks can be faked, so can this. And that will be the stand of the scientific community. If there is any DNA evidence to be found, it will be inconclusive. Again, these things are interesting, but for Mr. Gonzalez to claim this as “convincing proof” is just silly. It’s just one more piece of the puzzle. As you, I and other have said, it’s a very presumptuous and lofty claim. For this sort of press release, I’d expect nothing less than a body or part of a body. Anything else is just another piece of the puzzle.

    Even if there is inconclusive DNA evidence, this media blitz doesn’t bode well for Mr. Gonzalez or his future credibility. He should have been more subtle about all of this, methinks.

    @Jason: While some footprint impressions, and more strongly in my mind, some good hair samples have been found, as you state these are inconclusive. The Patterson video is interesting,but as is widely known, by current scientific analysis, is too low resolution, and of too unknown a providence (with regards to film speed) to be conclusive. In fact I lean more towards man in suite every day..but
    back to this story.

    The key focus here is very simple. They want you to focus on the impression on the truck. Forget that. What about the impression on the ground. Sorry, but any animal being THAT agitated (full body impression like a bear agitated)is going to be putting force against the car. That force will go down to it’s feet digging into the ground. The shear weight of any Bigfoot should leave multiple deep tracks. Those tracks look damn shallow to me. From a forensics perspective, the scene doesn’t match what one might expect from a large bipedal animal. I’m open to the possibility of BF, but here I call BS. Just my 2 cents…

  • Mark

    PS. I spoke of the Patterson video, aging myself. It is a film.
    Also, another interesting aspect would be the morphing of the impression. Would a full sized animal even leave the impression at the angles found on the vehicle, given the height? That would be harder to tell, but an interesting trail to follow on the evidence..

    I am concerned that the source of this is Jeff “Two Van” Gonzalez, known for making fanciful claims and responding to fact-checking with silly legal threats.

    See last fall’s exposure of Jeff’s “research” right here at GT:
