Bigfoot ‘Corpse’ Had a Rubber Foot; Finders ‘Admitted It Was a Costume,’ Says ‘Squatch Detective’ Host

Steve Kulls, host of BlogTalkRadio’s Squatch Detective, has denounced Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer – the Georgia men who claimed to have found a Bigfoot “corpse” last month – as liars and fraudsters.

Yesterday on his show, Kulls recounted how he first introduced self-styled Sasquatch hunter Tom Biscardi to Whitton and Dyer after Dyer had appeared on Kulls’ show on July 28 to discuss the “find.”

Whitton and Dyer are liars!

Kulls: Whitton and Dyer have crossed the line from hoaxers to criminals!

Eighteen days later, on Aug. 15, Biscardi, Whitton and Dyer held a press conference in Palo Alto, Calif., where they had promised to unveil hard evidence of the half-man, half-ape. But that event proved to be a bust, with Biscardi producing only photos of the alleged beast, and testing of alleged tissue samples showing only possum and human DNA.

Meanwhile, Kulls, who lives in upstate New York, says he flew to Georgia to inspect the corpse, which was thawing out from deep freeze.

While doing so one day after the press conference, Kulls says he “observed the foot, which looked unnatural – reached in and confirmed it was a rubber foot.”

“We immediately contacted Tom Biscardi and advised him of the situation,” says Kulls.  At that point, Biscardi told Kulls that Whitton and Dyer had admitted the corpse was a costume.

“We have proven now that Ricky Dyer and Matthew Whitton are liars,” Kulls told his audience.

Click hear to hear Kulls’ special “Bigfoot Corpse: Fact or Fiction?” edition of Squatch Detective, or read from the transcript below.

**************************************************************************************************************

STEVE KULLS: On August 16, 2008, the freezer containing the alleged corpse arrived with the Searching for Bigfoot team at an undisclosed location.  I arrived that same day at 6 p.m. to provide initial verification, examination, biohazard control, and consult for security measures at the location.

At that time, the ice was being thawed slowly, to prevent and further decomposition of the alleged corpse.

On August 17, 2008, Searching for Bigfoot Director of Operations TJ Biscardi and myself were up early. We discovered that some hair was now exposed from the ice.  I extracted some from the alleged corpse and examined it and had some concerns.

Bob Smalbach, vice president of Searching for Bigfoot, arrived and concurred.  We burned the said hair sample and the hair sample burned into a ball, uncharacteristic of hair.

At that time, we began to expedite the melting process, after receiving the go-ahead from Tom Biscardi, by using a salamander heater to heat the freezer.  Within one hour, I pressed on the partially exposed head and it seemed mostly firm, but unusually hollow in one small section – yet another ominous sign.

Within the next hour, upon examining the feet area, there was a break in the ice and I observed the foot, which looked unnatural – reached in and confirmed it was a rubber foot.

We immediately contacted Tom Biscardi and advised him of the situation, and he began to take action on his end.  We were advised that both Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer admitted at this point it was a costume.

They agreed to sign a promissory note in an admission of what they’d done, and set a meeting for their hotel room in California at 8 a.m. the next day.

On August 18, 2008, Tom Biscardi went to the hotel so they could sign those documents – where Dyer and Whitton were staying – and found out they had left.  Searching for Bigfoot is at this time seeking the return of their funds.

The actions and motives of Whitton and Dyer, obviously at this point, are beyond comprehension.

Whitton, who being a police officer for the Clayton County police Department in Georgia, got up before the world and lied, and was complicit to defraud in a felonious manner.

Ricky “Trailer Truck” Dyer, an ex-corrections officer, who now operates mostly as a car salesman and, as I uncovered several weeks ago, is involved in shill-bidding his vehicles on eBay under another screen name.

The bottom line in this is that both organizations sought the truth. The team here, myself, did our jobs, did our duties, reported it such, and there you have it.

We have proven now that Ricky “Trailer Truck” Dyer and Matthew Whitton are liars, and have crossed that line from hoaxers to committing a fraud and a crime.

‘Bigfoot’ Finder Rick Dyer Admitted to Trickery in July BTR Interview

Rick Dyer, the Georgia man who claims to have found a Bigfoot corpse, said last month that he and co-finder Matthew Whitton, also of Georgia, were purposely duping the public to drum up interest in the story.

In his first interview about the find, July 28 on BlogTalkRadio’s The Squatch Detective, Dyer said of “teaser” videos he and Whitton had released:

“What we’re trying to do is get everybody pissed [off]. And then, on September 1, everyone will have to eat their words.”

In response, host Steve Kulls said, “You intrinsically said about 80 percent of the video itself was crap.”

Apparently supporting Kulls’ statement, Dyer told the host that an “expert” in one of the videos was in fact Whitton’s brother.

“We throw hints in[to the video]. Like [Matt Whitton’s] brother, Morton Whitton, ‘Dr. Van Buren.’ If you watch the previous videos, you will see him in other photos in the other videos. But no one has caught that.”

Will finder's chicanery squash Squatch tale?

The alleged corpse: Will finder's chicanery squash Squatch tale?

Dyer also tells Kulls, “The freezer we’re supposed to have [Bigfoot] in, well, all you have to do is freeze-frame that and you will see it’s like four feet long.”

Later in the show, a caller asks, “You said earlier you’re going to reveal some information September 1. Am I to understand someone is taking the body – or are you selling the body?”

“Yes, I am selling the body,” Kulls replies. “But it’s going to be in my possession for one month after September 1. And then [the buyer] will take possession of the body.”

Later still, another caller asks, “You think by riling up the Bigfoot community, by pissing everybody off, you think that’s gonna make them buy your T-shirts?”

“Oh, yea. Yes,” says Dyer. “We’re selling a lot of T-shirts… We’re going to continue to build up the hype.  We’re going to continue doing everything we’re doing.  The more people we piss off, the better for us.”

Earlier this week, Dyer and Whitton announced they would be holding a press conference today in California, where they promised to unveil hard evidence of the half-man, half-ape they claim is seven feet, seven inches tall and weighs 500 pounds – or, as Dyer described it on BlogTalkRadio, “Like two Andre the Giants.”

But that event proved to be something of a bust.

One Fox News headline read “Bigfoot Hunters Reveal Little at Press Conference,” while a Cox News Service headline read “‘Bigfoot’ Press Conference Reveals Possum DNA.”

Meanwhile, Kulls, who lives in upstate New York, tells us he landed in Georgia just hours ago to inspect the alleged Sasquatch body.

And on his show Monday, Aug. 18, he says he’ll issue a statement about his findings.

Will the Georgia beast turn out to be the genuine article – or just a big bamboozle?

Stay tuned.
