I received word a few hours ago that friend and fellow Bigfooter Rob Riggs passed away a few days ago.
I first met Rob when he spoke at my 2001 Texas Bigfoot Conference. That event was impacted by 9/11, which happened 4 days earlier. Several speakers were unable to fly in for the event, but Rob drove up for the event.
He had many interesting theories about the Big Thicket Wildman (Bigfoot) that he hopefully has the answers to now.

When you think of Sasquatch you may think of grainy footage of a large mass moving through the woods or perhaps the movie and then television show, Harry and the Hendersons and that is because the iconic and centuries long hunt for Bigfoot has permeated pop culture. You probably do not think of unmaned drones swooping through the sky to hunt for signs of the mysterious bipedal humanoid, but that is exactly what Professor Jeffrey Meldrum is thinking about.

When Rocky Elmore joined the United States Border Patrol, he knew it would be a journey fraught with danger. But little did he know that the very real trails he walked night after night would soon lead him into surreal encounters from a different dimension. This was never more evident than when the ghost of a recently fallen fellow agent began to appear on top of the cliff from which he died. It marked the beginning of the end to one of the most bizarre series of events in the history of the U.S. Border Patrol. This collection of true stories provides a rare look into law enforcement that includes not only the routine nightly patrols of the USBP but also actual paranormal activity as it happened to the agents in the field. Readers will go on nightly patrols with the agents of the Brown Field Border Patrol Station, and will face their worst fears as they come face to face with smugglers, mountain lions, ghosts, and even a Sasquatch in this isolated no-man’s land. OUT ON FOOT takes place in the mysterious Otay Mountains just east of San Diego, California.

Filled with eye witness reports, historic photos, and current accounts of the paranormal, this in-depth book looks to discover what really happened in the town of Van Meter.

Let me add some explanations: In general it’s obviously a larger marine creature, so I considered larger known, recent marine creatures (namely cetacean or sharks) at first for identification and not a sturgeon as suggested.
