Its Official. It was a hoax after all!!

Over at Tom Biscardis website searchingforbigfoot.com, Steve kulls aka the sasquatch detective and close personal friend of Biscardi has released part a news release given to Fox news. An extract from the press release is as follows..

 “At that time we contacted Mr. Biscardi who gave us permission to begin an expedited melting process. We set up a salamander heater to heat the freezer. Within one hour we were able to see the partially exposed head, as I was now able to touch it, I was able to feel that it seemed mostly firm, but unusually hollow in one small section. This was yet another ominous sign. Within the next hour of thaw, a break appeared up near the feet area. As the team and I began examining this area near the feet, I observed the foot which looked unnatural, reached in and confirmed it was a rubber foot. “

He continues

“At that point we immediately contacted, Tom Biscardi and advised him of the situation and he began to take action on his end. Later that day, Tom Biscardi informed us that both Matthew Whitton and Ricky Dyer admitted it was a costume. They reportedly agreed to sign a promissory note and admission of what they had done, and set a meeting in their hotel room in California for 8AM on August 17th, 2008.

At that time I drew up the documents for Mr. Biscardi. On August 17th, 2008 Tom Biscardi went to the hotel where Dyer and Whitton were staying and found that they had left. At this time action is being instigated against the perpetrators of this fraud. Tom Biscardi asked us to contact you, the press, and share all that we have discovered.”

The problem i have with this story is that no criticism is labelled at Biscardi at all. Once again Biscardi will somehow wriggle his way out of this one claiming that he was also the unfortunate victim of the hoax.

I dont think it was coincidence that the first Person apart from the main antogonists to be allowed to view the body was a personal friend of Biscardis who would no doubt expose the hoax ( as planned) and then lay the blame squarely at the feet of the two ‘finders’ of the ‘body’.

Biscardi may not have made have made a fortune off this but certainly he has received a lot of publicity. And as they say ‘any publicity is good publicity’.

Will Teflon Tom wriggle his way out of this one. Only time will tell. but i think he will.
 
On a lighter note..

It would seem that even CNN are trying to make money off this. They are selling these T-Shirts . Good ole capitalism at work here. Wonder if Teflon Tom will be buying one?

I like it lol!! But wont be buying one. They only do a large size.

And Finally, since this saga first broke last week, i have had in excess of 300,000 hits to my site and many e-mails. But surprisingly not one additional entry on my guestbook. If you are reading this please sign my guestbook. This is very strange and i Hope there is not a probem with the page.
