Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Don Adkins:
I spoke with the witness by phone and she added these additional details. The creature appeared to be between 8 and 9 feet tall, based on the height of the weeds it was walking through. The witness did not see any facial features. The shoulders were about 3 feet wide. The arms were swinging as it walked away from the witness. The ears were visible on the sides of the head and she described them as slightly pointed and covered with hair.
