Bigfoot Encounters

New claims against famous film set enthusiasts at odds

World News Digest Sunday 10 January 1999

January 1999 - BOTHELL, Washington. -- In the hearts and minds of true believers, Bigfoot's veracity has long been enshrined in a single minute of jerky, grainy footage of a startled Sasquatch retreating into the upper California woods.

But two enthusiasts of the legendary being are parting company with their iconoclastic colleagues, alleging four magnified frames of the 16 mm footage show tracings of a bell-shaped fastener at Bigfoot's waist.

After decades of doubt, Clifford Crook of Bothel, Washington and Christopher Murphy of British Columbia say without a doubt the creature in the so-called "Patterson-Gimlin Film can finally be dismissed as a man in a monkey suit. "
