Two Bigfoot hunters claim they have the body of one and plan to release a photo and what they claim is DNA evidence at a news conference in Palo Alto on Friday.
The Bigfoot is claimed to have been found in the woods of northern Georgia by Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer, and the claim is being supported by a Bay Area Bigfoot researcher Tom Biscardi, a multiple local Democratic candidate.
The press release as follows. A site claiming to have the first pics is down, but here’s the link in case it comes back up, although the pic top right is said to be one of the shots currently available. Other sites are suggesting this could be the “real deal;” who knows, we’ll have to wait for the press conference and the proof.

Now if it turns out to be true - well - then it's a whole new ballgame. Will hopefully open up some people's minds.

An extreme and famous case of Hypertrichosis.
click photo to link to web page.
It is suspected to be a genetic disorder that is inherited.
If there were multiple sitings, these individuals could be closely related and unwilling to integrate with society.
I do believe there is something behind bigfoot sightings, I also suspect that the answer may be this simple.

From a Release, here are some of the vital statistics on the "Bigfoot" body:
*The creature is seven feet seven inches tall.
*It weighs over five hundred pounds.
*The creature looks like it is part human and part ape-like.
*It is male.
*It has reddish hair and blackish-grey eyes.
*It has two arms and two legs, and five fingers on each hand and
five toes on each foot.
*The feet are flat and similar to human feet.
*Its footprint is sixteen and three-quarters inches long and five and three-quarters inches wide at the heel.
*From the palm of the hand to the tip of the middle finger, its hands are
eleven and three-quarters inches long and six and one-quarter inches wide.
*The creatures walk upright. (Several of them were sighted on the same day that the body was found.)
*The teeth are more human-like than ape-like.

Well, I wish this is true, but an alive creature would have been better! But does it giveshumans the right to have a Bigfoot hunting season and end up messing up?
Thats a good point Moon...if this is indeed a "Bigfoot" and not just a human with the disorder Hypertrichosis that was mentioned in a previous post by Atropa belladonna...theres a real threat that some individuals might try to hunt and possibly kill any exsisting ones that might be out there. I do think the majority of Crypto enthusiast will try to capture rather than kill...if this is true evidence it will be a huge breakthrough for people that have studied it/devoted their lives to it for so many years.
Yikes, five hundred pounds! Thanks for the update Moon!

First off, the two 'gentlemen' (and I use that term very loosely) claim to have found the already dead body and seen several other bigfoots in the vicinity. It apparently took them a couple of days to drag the body out of the woods.
They have a YouTube page, which I will not link to because of their immature and childish behaviour and language that they have used. They constantly attacked several reputable cryptozoologists in these videos.
I myself am very iffy about this. It doesn't look right to me in that picture, and Loren Coleman is hinting (he was yesterday when he was granted permission to post the image) along the lines of a primate rather than a classical Bigfoot and is calling it the Georgia Gorilla.

But, I don't have my hopes up... as I'm sure it will turn out to be a hoax. I find it hard to believe that they saw multiple "bigfoot" creature in the area around the body... and I think I read in one article that they had video proof of it... its all hard to believe. Time will tell I suppose...
Oh, and I always figured that if bigfoot was to ever be found, this is how it would happen!
