My name is Eric Tipton. I have Been Researching Salt Fork For Two Years Now and have collected a lot of data. With everything we have collected what I was still lacking was validation from what I saw years ago. On 8-22-15 at 5:15PM I received it. My partner and I were standing on a bridge on Rt 55 talking about the day we just had. As I panned away from my partner as soon as I looked out across the water it (Bigfoot) stepped out of the thick brush in front of a tree and our eyes met instantaneously.
He stretched straight up his eyes grew wide he paused for a second then turned to the right (my left) took a step and dropped down off the bank, disappearing.
It had a large head with very predominate facial features. It had no facial hair and very little neck. It had a short forehead with the head slopping back. It had dark eyes large cheek bones and a wide flat nose. the mouth was wide with what looked like thin lips. The shoulders were at least 48” wide and the chest was hairless. from the chest to the waist wasn’t strait down. As in its body was built like a body builders and came down to the waist in a V shape. The hair was a dark Brownish red and the skin color was also dark. That of a native American or middle eastern culture.
As it turned it stepped with the left leg leading the step it took was every bit of 6′ before dropping down and disappearing. As I mimic the movement and speed we put the sighting at 5 to 6 seconds. We averaged the distance from where I was to where it stepped out to around 100 yards. We returned the following day 8-23-15 and followed the channel back to where it stepped out. I am 6’1 and the brush was about chest high to me, and I saw from its head to it’s waist line. We did find a track way up to the spot it was seen with a matted down area where it stood. We also found a print that was 16”L from back of heel X 10”W from outside edge of the big toe to outside edge of the little toe that we did cast.
Thanks for your time
