The Federal Bureau of Investigation just released 40 plus year old documents in the case of….Bigfoot! Buzz60’s Mercer Morrison has the story.
The U.S. government released Bigfoot’s FBI file Wednesday (June 5). It contains a few news clippings, and some formal letters to and from a monster hunter in the 1970s — leading to an examination of 15 hairs and some skin the hunter believed came from “a Bigfoot.”
It appears that Peter Byrne, that monster hunter, first wrote to the FBI on Aug. 26, 1976. His note, printed on fancy letterhead reading “The Bigfoot Information Center and Exhibition,” suggested that the FBI was in possession of flesh and hair belonging to a mysterious creature, possibly belonging to a “Bigfoot.”
“Gentlemen,” Byrne wrote, “Will you kindly, to set the record straight, once and for all, inform us if the FBI, has examined hair which might be that of a Bigfoot; when this took place, if it did take place; what the results of the analysis were.”
