Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Scott Taylor:
This witness delivers papers every Saturday morning. She is on the road from about 2:00 AM until she finishes sometime after daylight. She travels from Morton all the way to Packwood.
She was on Washington Highway 12, traveling west-bound, near the east end of Silverbrook Road. She had the window rolled-down and she was putting a paper in the box when she heard two vocalizations. The first one came from about 50 yards away. It was described as a high pitched “Whooo-oop”, which gave her the impression that is was a “Where are you?”. The second vocalization came from a different direction and was further away. The tone of this one was deeper and louder, which she described as a whoop-growl. She felt that the first one was a female and the second was a male.
She noticed that the cows were all bunched-up by the nearest house. Usually they are spread-out in the pasture. She said that it was eerily quiet and that she usually can hear night birds and other noises. This time, it was silent. Further, her small dogs dove to the floor-boards to hide. She said that she felt an overwhelming fear that has stayed with her to this day.
She went back after daylight, and found a trail coming out of the woods. She said that the vocalizations came from the area between Highway 12 and Silverbrook road.
There was another report from very close to this area, and that sasquatch, which was clearly seen by the whole family, came from the mountains to the north side of Silverbrook road. This report was briefly published, and then taken down due to people figuring out where the actual residence was and who they were, and then trespassing trying to find the sasquatch.
