Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Jeff H:
The witness is a classmate of my son. The boy is 14 years old and a freshman in high school. I spoke with him on the phone and met with him and his father. I found the witness to be forthright and very curious about sasquatch.
He took me to the exact spot where he had the encounter. The animal was standing facing away from the witness in a small field between two houses. The witness said the animal appeared very dark and he could see the general shape and outline in the moonlight and starlight. The animal turned slightly and looked toward the witness and after a few seconds began to scream and ran on two legs into the wood line crashing and snapping brush. The young man could see definite arm swing when the animal ran. The screaming lasted well over thirty seconds. The witness was very frightened and quickly continued on to his friend's house. The witness said the creature was seven and a half to eight feet tall
This area is in the French Broad River valley, with lots of farmlands and large forest tracts. The Blue Ridge Parkway and Pisgah National Forest are nearby. I believe this young man had a real experience with a sasquatch.
