NEAREST ROAD: County rd 73
OBSERVED: My wife and me and our two children were coming home from my aunts house between 3 and 4 am. It was very foggy. We were within a couple miles from home when she spotted what she said was a very broad creature that stood on two legs and I became really excited when she said what stuck out to her the most was the figures cone shaped head and the way the hair shined when the lights hit it. I am still angry with myself because I was asleep on the passenger seat. She says the creature had its back to the road and disappeared when we went past it. She franticly explained to me what she saw when we got home and being the Bigfoot enthusiast I am jumped in my car and returned to the spot but didn't see anything.
OTHER WITNESSES: just one. my wife
OTHER STORIES: Yes. I submitted a vocalization and wood knock report last year that occurred at my home which is only a mile or so from this report sight.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Between 3 and 4 a.m. Very foggy
ENVIRONMENT: There are farm fields on both sides of the road and chicken houses about 300 feet from the location of the sighting.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Mike Brumfield:
The witness and her family were returning home down a country road. The only person awake in the car was the wife who was obviously driving and I spoke with her and her husband. She used to be a skeptic before this night. It was 10 to 15 feet away from the car when she first sighted it. It was on the same side of the road but moving away from her so its back was to her. She said it disappeared quickly as she approached it. The husband continued to scout the area for over a week.
The family has heard knocks and howls several times over the years. They know of other sightings in nearby counties.
