(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Litchfield County
LOCATION DETAILS: People State Forest access road off of the Farmington River.
NEAREST TOWN: Barkhamsted
NEAREST ROAD: Route 44
OBSERVED: I am a career Army Infantry soldier and also a criminal investigator. I found and photographed three-footprints following a stream. I put dollar bills down to document the size, I also believe that the stride was at least 5 feet between two of the prints. I believe the prints were of a two-legged creature with a foot size of at least 15 inches.
ALSO NOTICED: On a previous day, wood knocks were heard in the vicinity. Also voices in the distance.
OTHER WITNESSES: My wife was with me waiting in the car. I went to get her after I discovered the foot pints. She helped me document the prints.( I have photos)
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 10:00 AM
ENVIRONMENT: Forest next to a stream, just off state park road.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Mike Young:
I spoke with the Witness and his Wife via telephone. The next day he made casts of the three footprints. Two days later I visited the location with the Witness. The two right footprints are 14-15 inches and have similar characteristics to other non-human hominid footprints I have seen. The left footprint was less conclusive.
Witnesses took photos of the location as well. They gave me the best cast as evidence.
Both Husband and Wife confirmed each other's story. I spoke with each separately. Both were credible.
Husband is a local CSI investigator and Afghan war Veteran.
