Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Thomas Bruns:
As described, they were on a main road near a bridge which crosses over Possum Creek. She and her husband were driving around 11 p.m. on a rainy night, coming around a curve when they both saw the creature standing in the middle of the two-lane road. It did not turn to look at their car, but rather continued crossing the road directly into the woods. She estimated the creature to be around 7 feet in height, and the brownish-grey hair was wet and matted. They talked about this incident for days. This area is next to the Chickamauga Lake and Tennessee River, with abundant fish and wildlife.
