Werewolf Sightings/ Who Killed Bob Crane?

About the show

In the summer of 2015, P&M Fortean Research started to receive eyewitness accounts of upright canines throughout central Pennsylvania. Paranormal researcher Lon Strickler of Phantoms and Monsters joined Richard Syrett in the first half to discuss this unusual phenomenon and what witnesses described as a 8-10 feet tall Bigfoot-like creature with a canine snout. The first incident was the beginning of a series of sightings throughout the central Pennsylvania region and what some are calling a Werewolf encounter.

"There always have been dogman or upright canine reports coming out of Pennsylvania... for over a century," Strickler said. In November 2014, a witness walking his dogs in State Game Land 331 in Clearfield County, Pennsylvania, watched as a large bipedal creature covered in short dark hair step out of the brush in front of him, Strickler reported. The creature, described as a Bigfoot with a canine snout, never reacted to the witness or his barking dogs, he revealed.

Not long after the 2014 sighting another report came in from Clearfield County. In July 2015, a man was driving home from work when he encountered a large brownish-tan creature crouching on the road eating a dead animal, Strickler disclosed. The witness described the creature as a werewolf with a long snout and yellow eyes, he added. Similar sightings have occurred all over the upper mid-west in Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Kentucky, and as far north as Ontario, Strickler explained.


The 1978 murder of Hogan's Heroes star Bob Crane remains one of the most high-profile unsolved celebrity murders of all time. Thirty-eight years after his brutal murder in Scottsdale, Arizona, fans around the world still want answers. Was Crane's friend John Carpenter the killer or did police arrest an innocent man? In an unprecedented investigation, reporter John Hook discussed the brutal murder case and how original blood samples from Crane's autopsy and Carpenter's rental car may finally shed new light on who killed Crane.

"If we got this DNA... we could retest it and get a more definitive result," Hook said, noting how much more advanced DNA science has become since Crane's murder. Prior to the most recent DNA testing, blood evidence from Carpenter's car had been inconclusive, Hook explained. What investigators knew definitively was Crane's blood type was found in Carpenter's car, he noted. According to Hook, everything points to Carpenter as the killer, except the new DNA results. "What they recovered in [Carpenter's] car that we tested did not match Bob Crane," he revealed.
