Describe the creature with detail:
"Its head was huge and round shaped, but not completely round like
a circle. It had a reddish brown hair all over its body (that showed
in the window) and all over its face. Its mouth was closed the whole
time. It had a wide human nose, but its forehead area made me think
of a gorilla. Its eyes did not shine or reflect any light. They looked
Additional info: "At this same time there was
an outbreak of sightings and reports from all around our area, but especially
in the Owensboro area."
She was around 7 years old. It had just gotten dark outside. It was
lit up enough from the kitchen light shining out the window. The creature's
mouth stayed closed the entire time. She explained, "The face was
human-like, but the forehead is what made me think gorilla. It had a
large brow ridge over the eyes and the forehead looked like wrinkled
skin, or folds. The forehead was long." She said that for the 5
minutes she just sat and ate her cereal, staring at the creature. She
is not sure why she didn't scream or tell her mom who was standing behind
her washing the dishes with her back to the window. She told me she
is still puzzled today as to why she didn't have more of a reaction
to it back then. In fact she did tell me that she would NOT be so calm
today if she saw the same thing again. After what she guessed was 5
minutes, she looked up once from taking a bite of her cereal and it
was gone. She told her mom then that there had been a monster at the
window and her mom said, "That's nice," and chuckled.
This report to me came with many surprises. My niece contacted me that
a lady she knew in Owensboro had related to her a story of a Bigfoot
that she had seen as a child. My niece immediately asked the lady if
I (her uncle) could contact her and do this report. The lady was so
relieved that someone finally believed her that she readily agreed to
talk to me.
Upon contacting this witness and after talking for several moments we
both realized that we had met each other back in the early 70s, or at
least we had known and met each other’s family members. As she
gave me information I knew her dad and brother. It was a pleasant surprise.
This also meant that I had been in this exact home back then also.
Of course the area of her sighting has changed since back in 1975, so
I did not feel the need to go to the location to do any investigating.
I drive by this area many times weekly or monthly since it is only about
8 miles from my home and I have family living on this very street today.
Although this area is still rural and has woods all around, it was even
more so back in the 70s. There was a great deal of excitement during
that time of several Bigfoot sightings from the Owensboro area, especially
in the Ben Hawes State Park area, and another place called Bon Harbor
Hills. There were also sightings in other parts of Daviess county and
McLean county (where this report took place)
The witness told me several times that she was telling me the absolute
truth and would firmly stand by what she saw. She would never change
her story because as she said, "I saw what I saw, and I know it

Two Encounters From Two Generations
M.A. (full name on file)
Estimated dates: 1st report was 1998; 2nd report was
Estimated times: 1st report was late evening just before
dark; 2nd report was midnight.
Nearest cities? Livermore and Island
Nearest road: Hwy 431
Length of time encounters happened: 1st report was
about 20 minutes; 2nd report was about 10 seconds.
How many witnesses? Separate witness each time.
relayed to researcher from adult daughter of man who had sighting and
is since deceased. This is Part 1:
An elderly man went fishing just outside of Livermore, KY on the Ohio/Mclean
County line. It was late evening just getting dark. As soon as he sat
down to start fishing he kept hearing a rustling/moving sound from the
nearby wood line. Since the sound was soft he figured it was a rabbit
or other small game animal.
After about 5 minutes of constantly hearing this movement the elderly
man was overcome by a wretched stinking smell that almost made him sick.
He looked at the wood line and saw a pair of huge Glowing/Shining eyes
not barely 30 feet away. The man was frozen with fear because this “thing”
was enormous. The creature was crouched or bent over and hiding behind
a nearby tree and peeking around the tree at the man.
Even though it was getting dark the man could see the creature was black
and covered in hair. He saw 2 long arms covered in hair. Even though
the man was afraid he was also struck with amazement at 2 things: 1)
At how stealthy this huge creature was to be that close and yet almost
undetectable had the old man not been raised in the country and used
to the sounds of the woods. 2) He noticed the creature was slowly creeping
backwards, trying to get away from the man, as if “it” was
as afraid of him as he was of “it.” The creature would sneak
back a few feet and hide behind another tree, and peek around the tree
at the old man. After the creature had got about 50 yards away it then
suddenly stood upright. It was at least 8 feet tall. It turned and ran
away into the thicker. Deeper woods at that location.
After the adult daughter finished the story, her daughter who was present
also added this report of a sighting she had at the grandfather’s
house a few years later. This is Part 2:
Years later in 2000 this same elderly man’s 14 year old grand-daughter
was staying the night at her grandparent’s trailer and had been
walking with friends in the small town of Island, KY as there was little
else to do but walk around town. As she was coming home around midnight
she rounded the corner of the trailer to enter the back door and almost
ran face first into a tall upright massive creature standing there in
the dark. She froze in terror and could see the silhouette of a tall
and very huge figure standing there silently just feet away. This figure
was taller than any man she had ever seen. She could not move. Then
after about 10 seconds the creature turned and ran off towards the nearby
woods and began making a loud, screaming yell that was almost deafening
until it was into the woods. The girl tore through the door of the trailer
and was scared for her life. She says she will NEVER forget that experience.
Describe the creature with detail:
Report #1: Elderly man saw a huge dark “black” creature
with long arms that hung really low to the ground. It moved in a crouched
position until about 50 yards away then stood up at about 8 feet tall.
Had big glowing eyes set far apart. Creature emitted an ungodly rancid
smell that would make a person sick. Report #2: Only saw a silhouette
of a very tall and wide frame standing within 3 feet of her in total
Additional info: Elderly man has since passed away. He told this story
the same for many years until his dying day and never changed it in
the least. Even though his friends and family laughed at him, he never
changed his telling of the incident. I see the granddaughter (who is
approximately 30 years old) almost weekly as she works at a local business
less than a mile from my home.
I have known this family for many years, although not closely, but as
passing acquaintances because we live in the same county. I never knew
the grandfather had such a sighting or I would have ask him about it
personally. He was an honest man. He stuck to his story until he passed
away. Both the elderly man’s incident and the granddaughters,
both happened within less than 4 miles of each other, and both happened
within a 6 mile radius of where I have received and investigated 7 Bigfoot
reports in the last 5 years. Stories that span over the last 40 years.
This area is a Bigfoot hotspot and is known to other researchers as
an active area. This area has thick, uncut timberland overflowing with
wildlife, and is bordered by the Green River and the Rough River.
I absolutely believe this families story and they related it to me with
sincerity and the granddaughter showed signs of trauma as she relived
her incident from 2000.

Bike Rider Has Encounter
Your first name: Sandra (last name on file)
Estimated date? Spring 1982
Estimated time? Late Evening
Nearest city? Buttonsberry, KY
Nearest road: Hwy 85
Length of time the encounter lasted: About 5 minutes.
How many witnesses? One
Please describe your encounter:
"I was a young girl out riding my bike on the road I lived on.
As I got to a certain spot something caught my attention out of my peripheral
vision on a hillside above where I was riding. I stopped my bike by
putting my feet on the ground but I was still on my bike, straddling
the seat and holding the handlebars. There is a big hillside with some
steep rocky cliffs and some huge rocks jutting out from the face of
the hill. Standing on the top of one of these huge rocks near the top
was this "creature". I stopped riding my bike and froze in
place as I watched this thing. I have tried to estimate that I was somewhere
between 75 to 100 yards from this creature. It was big and was a blackish
brown color. I first thought it was some man up there (but I wondered
why he was there and how he got up there) until I saw it move. It made
this huge long step forward which brought it right at the edge of the
big rock it was standing on (for a moment I thought it was going to
jump off). That long step made me realize this was no man at all. That
step was unbelievably long. I was frozen in both amazement and fear
as I watched it. The next thing my young mind was puzzled about was
how freakishly long its arms were. I mean its arms were extremely long
and its hands had to be way below the knees. This was imprinted in my
mind to this day. The next thing I noticed was that this thing was looking
at me and I was staring at it. No I couldn't see its facial features
but I could tell it was facing me, and it knew I was there looking at
it. Somewhere about this time of us staring at each other, I came to
my senses and became aware that I needed to run away fast. I jumped
up on my bike and rode fast as I could to my house."
Describe the creature with detail:
"Look, you can believe me or not but I'm telling you this thing
looked 10 feet tall, and yes I am considering the distance I was away
from it but that is what makes me state that height, because even at
that long distance, this thing was tall. It was a blackish brown color
and the hair all over its body was long and hanging off its arms. I
could not make out any facial features but this thing had a human like
shape to its shoulders and head area but much larger. "
Any additional Info?
"Yes. I told people about this when it happened, especially my
family, but they laughed at me so I stopped telling it much. I did not
(would not) ride my bike down that road for over a year after this incident.
I was too frightened at the thought of it being there again. Then I
began to hear of other stories of my friends and other locals seeing
this creature. I have shared with your researcher some of these stories.
One group of men saw it at their work site and they were afraid to take
the road to get back to their work site. I have a very interesting story
of some of my friends having this creature throw its arm over their
passing vehicle and causing damage to that vehicle. Today I am an avid
believer of Bigfoot and there are still incidents in my area all these
years later. Just a few months ago as I was going out to my car late
at night I heard some long weird howls coming from the area behind my
house (I still live in the immediate area of my younger sighting) I
grabbed 2 pieces of wood and tried a loud wood knock and waited for
several minutes, but no return knock and the howling stopped. I AM A
Follow-Up Report: 3-13-15
I spoke to this witness both over the phone and In person. This lady
is a very well spoken person and is extremely interested in Bigfoot
since her sighting years ago. She has a vivid memory of her sighting
and relayed this story to me both by phone and in person and not one
small point was ever changed in Her telling of it. She even got excited
during the sharing of her story and it was plain to tell that it still
affects her to this day. She also has some other Bigfoot related tales
that involve her friends and neighbors from this same community who
have had incidents over the last several years. Some of the very witnesses
she named are people that I know personally. I hope to do some follow
up with them if possible concerning their incidents. This witness now
lives lass than 1/2 mile from the location of her sighting as a youth.
This area is a well known Bigfoot hotspot which I have obtained 5 different
Bigfoot related events over the last 6 years period.
Special Note: This Investigator (Don Neal) has a "Flir Thermal"
video on YouTube of some type of creature that kept sticking its head
up and down at a big brush pile out in a field at 2:00 am in the morning
while I was doing a follow up on another Bigfoot sighting, at the same
time I had movement and sounds (whoops and whistles) coming from the
woods at my back as I was filming the Thermal hit in front of me. Those
woods are the same woods that run behind this ladies house and to the
location of her sighting mentioned here. ALSO, I turned in another report
from this exact same location just last Summer (2014) of 3 teens who
walked up on a tall hairy creature standing in the wood line at 2:00
am in the morning as they were walking home. YES, these are the same
exact woods and at almost the same location of this ladies younger sighting.
Within 500 yards to be exact. Awesome coincidence.
I believe this woman saw a Bigfoot in this known Bigfoot location where
there are sightings going back some 50 years. This researcher's family
is from this exact area and I know it very well.

Bigfoot Seen Picking Apples!
first name: Joshua (last name on file)
Estimated date: Fall 1978
Estimated time: Early morning…..maybe 6 or 7ish.
Nearest city: Livermore, KY
Nearest road: Hwy 136
Length of time the encounter lasted: A minute or so,
How many witnesses? Only me. Family members saw footprints
in the plowed fields.
describe your encounter:
family lived in a small farm house on the McLean/Ohio county line near
a small river which flows through both counties. We had several apple
trees in our back yard. One morning in 1978 when I was around 6 years
old I woke up to go eat breakfast Mom was fixing in the kitchen. As
I got up from bed I looked out the window and not 40 feet away standing
at one of our apple trees was this creature.
was eating an apple in one hand but the other arm was folded up near
its chest and it had some apples in the fold of its arm as if it had
gathered them up to carry off when it was going to leave. It looked
straight at me and seemed both surprised and alarmed, as if it had been
caught. I remember it looking at me, then back at the apple tree, then
back at me, as if it was wondering what to do, or whether to get more
apples before it left.
ran screaming into the kitchen telling my Momma that I just saw the
“Boogieman” (I did not know what a Bigfoot was back then).
Mom rushed to my bedroom window but it was gone and she got onto me
for scaring my little sister with such a tale. The very next morning
I woke up and looked out the window to see if it was there again and
it was! Not at the same apple tree, but one a little further away from
the house. Same creature. I again ran to the kitchen where my Mom was
cooking breakfast and repeated my words from the day before. Mom scolded
me for scaring my sister again and that was that.
lived in this house for another year or so and I never saw this creature
ever again. I had never seen it before this incident either.”
the creature with detail:
was 5 or 6 feet tall and very muscular. No body fat. Although it was
standing on 2 legs (bipedal) it was also stooped over in its back, or
crouched forward (like an elderly woman stands that has a bad back).
Its hair/fur was dark colored with a reddish hue to it, and covered
its entire body except for the face and the palms of its hands that
I saw holding the apple. Its facial skin was a brownish red color and
was not shiny.
additional Info? “Yes. There are some things I found just as weird
as seeing the creature itself:
weird thing that I remember so well that even though I saw this creature
in the early morning with some daylight, I still saw its eyes almost
like they were glowing, or like a deer’s eyes reflect light. It
was an eerie red glow/glint. I will never forget that.
seeing the creature for the first time and even though I was only 6
years old, I was overwhelmed immediately by a gripping fear and shock.
I felt complete terror. I felt the feeling some call fight or flight.
I am still amazed how much that feeling overtook me, instantly.
and after my sighting of the creature our family had noticed strange,
huge footprints in the plowed field on the farm surrounding our home-place
many times. No one mentioned it much.”
Up Report: 10-27-14
report has totally blown me away simply because of the fact that for
the last 8 years I have been focused and researching a certain area
in Ohio County where I have gathered 6 to 7 incidents that are Bigfoot
related and have been told tales from as far back as when my Father
lived and was raised in this area back in the 40's and early 50's. This
witness did not know that and yet his family’s home-place described
in this report is just 1 mile away from my present research area.
witness is ex-military and was very precise in his wording and in his
relating the story to me in minute detail. During our phone call, his
emotions were evident in his voice as he described the creature and
looking it right in the face at 40 feet away.
was greatly relieved to finally get to tell someone other than his immediate
family after all these years for fear of ridicule and mockery. He was
so appreciative to tell someone that would believe him and understand
what he saw.
believe this witness 100% and I think he experienced the very rare occurrence
of seeing a juvenile Bigfoot, not once, but twice.
Don Neal, KBRO Lead Investigator
Thomas, KBRO investigator and artist, spent over an hour talking to
the witness over the phone getting the details of this sketch as close
as possible, even much longer drawing multiple versions before the witness
verified the final sketch. The witness said, "it looked like Eddie
Munster from the Adams Family, meaning it had a widow's peak hairline
and a thin nose rather than a wide nose." We have heard this description
before regarding juvenile Sasquatches.
