Last Show Recap

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

'Bigfoot' Press Conference Update

Show Archive
Date: Friday - August 15, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: Loren Coleman, Open Lines

Researcher Ruben Uriarte appeared briefly at the start of the program to comment on Friday's lackluster 'Bigfoot' news conference held by Matt Whitton, Rick Dyer, and a self-proclaimed Sasquatch hunter. Uriarte was immediately followed by mask and prop maker Chuck Jarman, who said the dead Bigfoot 'body' is a costume (pictured, left) that he sculpted for a Halloween company two years ago.

Noted cryptozoologist Loren Coleman joined George for the rest of the first half of the show to provide his analysis of the 'Bigfoot' press conference. Coleman said they should have rolled out the body today, or at the very least brought in photos of the feet and the scientists who are examining the creature. Coleman questioned the use of Russian scientists for the autopsy, noting that there are plenty of capable scientist in North America. He also pointed out several contradictions, including the fishy timeline and Whitton's claim to be a Bigfoot skeptic despite an earlier admission that he had dreamed about being a Bigfoot researcher since childhood.

Coleman confirmed Jarman's claim that the creature shown in the Whitton and Dyer photos is very likely a costume. According to Coleman, unless a bigfoot in north Georgia served as a model for the mask maker, it's a costume. Coleman also spoke about the DNA tests. The first test was inconclusive. The second showed human DNA and the third test came back as the DNA of an opossum. He theorized that the opossum DNA could be from the entrails seen in the photo. Coleman suggested the 'Bigfoot' photos and press conference are part of an elaborate money-making scheme.

Tim, a former make-up fx artist from Santa Margarita, phoned in during third hour Open Lines to provide additional corroboration that the 'Bigfoot' body is a costume created by Chuck Jarman. Sue in Florida shared a story about her father's encounter with Bigfoot while logging on Mount Baker. Sue said her father had a sample of hair from the creature, but her sister accidentally disposed of it. The last hour was a replay of Open Lines from 1/28/08.
