There have been several Bigfoot reports in the past few years from residents near the Tallapoosa County area in Alabama. In 2012 we broke the news reports about the strange sightings in Hale County and …

Dyer’s Latest Shenanigans, Another Press Conference Planned

Submitted by on January 11, 2014 – 6:06 PM13 Comments | 2,207 views

Some people never learn.

Rick Dyer is holding another press conference. Last time Dyer was involved in a press conference was 2008 and he revealed a bigfoot body that turned out to be a rubber ape suit in a freezer in Georgia. He later claimed that the government confiscated the real body so he had to replace it with something. This time the body is under glass and he has more stories to tell. A few too many.

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) – We’ve heard the stories and the tales of the 8-foot tall creature better known as Bigfoot. Some say they’ve seen him, many believe it’s a myth, but one man claims he’s actually killed the creature.

“September 6, 2012, I killed Bigfoot,” said Master Tracker Rick Dyer.

Rick Dyer recently released photos of the Bigfoot he claims to have killed outside of San Antonio Texas.

“The reason why I released photos of the beast couple of days ago is because I just received the body,” said Dyer.

You had not taken any photos of the body before you released it to the taxidermist?
Yes, taxidermist. Many people, myself included have commented that Hank…

In no regard resembles the creature Dyer videoed from hiding in his tent before the shooting.

He had been trying to explain that away as taxidermy. It has been pointed out, by myself if no on else, that he offers no invoice from the taxidermist as proof. Now Dyer has changed the story of the shooting to there being more than one bigfoot present that day. We are, I suppose, to presume the one he shot was the “other” bigfoot present. You can refresh your memory on the original story here.

“When they came I killed one, there was a couple that night, but I just managed to kill one,” said Dyer. “I shot him twice in the back and once in the head.”

Dyer said he decided to kill the creature for redemption.

As a part of his world tour with his body, Dyer now says he will hold a press conference on February 9th in an as yet undisclosed location in Washington State. It is a university in Washington state where he claims the body was studied. How that happened while the body was, he also claims, being kept “on ice” in Las Vegas I have no idea. Of course as a part of the original story, it was claimed that the body was confiscated by the film crew in disgust with Dyer’s actions and all ties were severed with him.

We will see how this new drama plays out, and what further contradictions Dyer can come up with in hopes of finally gaining some credibility. If at all possible, I will attend that press conference, should it be real.

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.

    Wow your doing this again, I guess this means you don’t believe in Bigfoot. It seems like you bash anybody who claims to have any evidence of it.

  • http://GhostTheory.com/ Henry

    What I believe is irrelevant. Dyer has already hoaxed this once, changed the story on this particular body more than once, and offered evidence only to those willing to pay for it, then when taken up on that offer failed to produce evidence. All he needs to do is present an invoice for the taxidermist and he gains some sliver of credibility. There is no reason to not disclose the name of the university where the body was studied. Let him do so. Yet without doing any of this is trying to claim $10,000,000.

    Should we believe him at his word?

  • Nyarlathotep

    Chances are this is a hoax. I don’t trust this guy. I will wait until some real scientists, not someone he’s paid to pretend to be scientists, verify the body as real.

  • Roy

    He has as mentioned no credibility at all after the last hoax. And why in the world would you have the body stuffed??? That doesn’t even make sense. I’d love to have you go to the press conference but if I was you I wouldn’t hold my breath about him actually having one. This guy also has a criminal record btw.

  • LOOMfreek

    I’m with Henry on this one. This guy is a known Hoaxer. If you’re at all interested in the possibility that any paranormal subject can be scientifically proven to be real, you should hate guys like Dyer. All hoaxers like this do is serve to muddy the waters and continue to perpetuate that all paranormal phenomenon is false and hoaxed and not worthy of serious scientific study.

    Hoaxer plain and simple. I don’t understand guys like this, especially after he failed the same hoax the first time around. It’s like, do you really think anyone is going to believe you the 2nd time around??? And do you really think you can fool real scientists so that you can claim that 10m?

    What I don’t get even more so than Dyer is the whole bigfoot community even covering and thereby promoting his shenanigans

  • chisel

    This guy is getting waaay too much press. Mainstream media loves to pander to this type of bullshit. But I do believe there are upright apes in North America and the government knows.

  • Jack

    Yes; they are called homo sapiens.

  • MysteryHunter

    You have a point!… I don’t mean this in any disrespect, I just feel the articles are very one sided.

  • csi-tech

    That would be a tough tanning job. Maybe he just had it freeze dried.

  • http://GhostTheory.com/ Henry

    I did not take it as any disrespect.
    Dyer simply has no credibility.

    Antics like this so discredit a field of research, which I feel has merit, in such a way as to almost guarantee no legitimate researcher will take it on. Dyer only does harm out of his greed and need for attention.

    As far as being one sided, I am not a journalist and make no pretense of objectivity, though it is a preferred point of view. I am a commenter, a skeptic, and in most cases prefer not to approach my skepticism from a cynical perspective rather one of curiosity. As a skeptic where I see a discrepancy in a story I consider it important to make a point of that discrepancy. Sometimes a part of what we do is crowdsource answers, as with the recent California Crop Circle. I am not above someone pointing out what I consider to be a discrepancy actually has a logical explanation, or is consistent and I simply lacked the knowledge to see that.

    Without challenging stories and holding them to tight scrutiny, we do not gain knowledge, only perpetuate urban legends and worse, lies.

  • ted

    Dyer is a dumb ass, he has lied so much he has forgotten what he originally said, the guy is sick and now he wants $$$$$$$, desperate to say and do anything to keep the $$$$$ rollin in, if it is a fake he should be put in jail, a place he can track a real bigfoot…up his ass

  • Zelda

    ( spit-take! ) lol….love that answer!

  • http://GhostTheory.com/ Henry

    Well, to no one’s surprise, this “press” conference never happened.
