A press conference in Palo Alto, Calif. tomorrow is planned to showcase yesterday's bold claim that the remains of a Sasquatch, or bigfoot, have been found in northern Georgia. Matthew Whitton, a police officer, and Rick Dyer, a former corrections officer, along with veteran Bigfoot tracker Tom Biscardi of Searching for Bigfoot, Inc., said they came across the seven-foot, seven-inch (2.3-meter), 500-pound (227-kilogram) body of a simianlike creature in the woods. The group also said DNA tests are being carried out and that a team of undisclosed scientists will examine the corpse.
ScientificAmerican.com contacted Jeffrey Meldrum, a prominent researcher on Sasquatch and professor of anatomy and anthropology at Idaho State University in Pocatello, who has studied bigfoot prints and other clues like hair samples. Meldrum has written a book on the subject of whether or not the mystery beast is real, and has previously said that "the evidence that exists fully justifies the investigation and the pursuit of this question."

Here’s a story that’s leaving a pretty big footprint on the Web: Two people claim to have bagged bigfoot in northern Georgia (the U.S. state, not the at-war Central Asian country).
The pair that claims to have found the mythical ape-human say in a press release (with photos) that the male creature is seven feet, seven inches tall (2.3 meters), weighs more than 500 pounds (227 kilograms), and has reddish hair and black-grey eyes. As for those legendary feet? Flat, and sporting a 16 and three-quarters inch- (41 centimeter-) long footprint.
The bigfoot hunters and a company called Searching for Bigfoot Inc. have scheduled a press conference at 12 p.m. PST this Friday in Palo Alto, Calif. to present their evidence. To further mollify the credulous, DNA tests on the suspected Sasquatch are also underway.
