Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator PSM:
I contacted the witness by phone on 9/25/05. After speaking with the witness, I feel strongly that the witness is credible. He may have saw a sasquatch. The witness also stated that on the day when the camp was found, he saw movement in the treeline but dismissed it.
