Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Jim Osborne:

I spoke with the witness and his father. The father and mother heard a strange scream ( followed soon after by a bad smell) around midnight July 13th of this year. See report #4659. The son and a friend later scouted out the woods and found large tracks near a creek bed (on July18th). He said the tracks were 50% larger than his size 16 shoes, and had 4 discernible toes.
