I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

Police Say Seattle’s Fremont Troll Receiving Gruesome Animal Sacrifices

Greg Newkirk on Roadtrippers Feeding the Troll

The Fremont Troll has been a Seattle staple since it’s creation in 1990, so it’s no surprise that people have come to revere the big guy under the bridge. But after a collection of freshly-skinned animal heads were found in his presence, police are worried a mysterious group might actually worship the statue.

Police on a routine patrol down Troll Ave at 2:30AM last Friday were startled when they came upon a grisly scene – a collection of bloody animal skulls scattered throughout the vicinity of a home directly opposite the Troll.


Police Say Seattle's Fremont Troll Receiving Gruesome Animal Sacrifices

This is nothing more or less than a stupid act by some ignorant people.
Though Fremont, like many of Seattle’s surrounding communities, has a strong Scandinavian heritage, there is no mythology behind the Fremont troll, it is merely a public sculpture. This act is mindless vandalism, and cruelty to animals.


The Troll is a mixed media colossal statue, located on N. 36th Street at Troll Avenue N., under the north end of the George Washington Memorial Bridge (also known as the Aurora Bridge). It is clutching an actual Volkswagen Beetle, as if it had just swiped it from the roadway above. The piece was the winner of a competition sponsored by the Fremont Arts Council in 1990, in part with the goal of rehabilitating the area under the bridge, which was becoming a dumping ground and haven for drug dealers. It was built later that same year. The idea of a troll living under a bridge is derived from the Scandinavian fairytale Three Billy Goats Gruff.

    Lifeless & Useless, unless made up of genuine gold or creamy fruity idol cake, just like religious symbol ‘crescent moon’, or thats just my ignorance. But ‘telekinesisly’ or ‘psychokineisly’, the sculpture was able to fabricate the spiritual attachment in the name of the art, to which “there is yet no proof that spiritualism is valid”……….The Abraham (peace and blessing be upon him) had referred to this kind of attachment as the “Devil Worshiping”.
