In January 2014, Rick Dyer, perpetrator of a previous Bigfoot hoax, said that he had killed a Bigfoot creature in September 2012 outside San Antonio, Texas. He said that he had scientific tests performed on the body, “from DNA tests to 3D optical scans to body scans. It is the real deal. It’s Bigfoot, and Bigfoot’s here, and I shot it, and now I’m proving it to the world.” He said that he had kept the body in a hidden location, and he intended to take it on tour across North America in 2014.Bigfoot I will wear my mask here or there everywhere face mask He released photos of the body and a video showing a few individuals’ reactions to seeing it, but never released any of the tests or scans. He refused to disclose the test results or to provide biological samples. He said that the DNA results were done by an undisclosed lab and could not be matched to identify any known animal. Dyer said that he would reveal the body and tests on February 9, 2014 at a news conference at Washington University, but he never made the test results available. After the Phoenix tour, the Bigfoot body was taken to Houston. On March 28, 2014, Dyer admitted on his Facebook page that his “Bigfoot corpse” was another hoax. He had paid Chris Russel of Twisted Toy Box to manufacture the prop, which he nicknamed “Hank”, from latex, foam, and camel hair. Dyer earned approximately $60,000 from the tour of this second fake Bigfoot corpse. He said that he did kill a Bigfoot, but did not take the real body on tour for fear that it would be stolen.
