Just when you thought the “Bigfoot Massacre” theory was getting rather wild, now comes word that Florida’s Scott Marlowe has sent a letter to the District Attorney in Humboldt County, California, “pursuant to an investigation of M. K. Davis’ ‘revelations’ about the Patterson-Gimlin ‘Bigfoot’ film.”
This is the first time I’ve heard “hypertrichosis” thrown into this story, which was suppose to be about a group of tribal hairy hominids being killed before “Patty” was filmed, but here it is.
Marlowe has given permission for this to be published here.
Needless to say, the opinions, speculations, and conclusions expressed in this letter are only those of Scott Marlowe’s.

Dear Mr. Gallegos,
It has become necessary to correspond with you as a number of questions have arisen over newly developed material from the film which Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin took in the Bluff Creek area of Humboldt County back on October 20, 1967.
A number of photographic experts have re-examined clarified images from the film, along with several animal experts, and concluded that the “animal” pictured in the film was actually a person afflicted with congenital generalized Hypertrichosis. Hypertrichosis is a medical term referring to a condition that exhibits as excessive body hair, the so-called werewolf syndrome, such as afflicts the now famous Mexican Wolf Boy.
In addition to this determination, there is increasing photographic evidence that the person, or possibly persons, so afflicted were shot and killed by others in the Patterson/Gimlin party who remain unnamed by Mr. Gimlin who survives Robert Patterson.
While circumstantial, there are additional inconsistencies in the account of the events that suggest there is something more to the story than has been revealed by those involved.
Having been associated with the analysis work of two of the photographic experts examining the film, Mr. Marlon Davis and
redacted by Cryptomundo, I am compelled to contact you to avoid any hint of complicity in failing to inform the authorities of these potentially criminal acts.
I would suggest that it would be prudent for your office to initiate an investigation into this matter in order to ascertain the actual facts surrounding this event and determine if criminal prosecution proceedings should be initiated.
Please feel free to contact me for additional details, due diligence sources and information regarding the researchers who have discovered the material in question.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
