Phone Interview 7-1-11
Witness Josey and her son have experienced mysterious activity at their Tiline home for almost two years which includes a trackway of abnormally large footprints, screams in the night, red eyeshine, a strange hair and obnoxious smells. In October 2010, late one evening Josey was chaining-up one of her dogs in her backyard. As she was hooking up her dog she experienced the sensation of being watched. As she looked up, she sees a dark silhouette of a massive, hairy figure about 40 yards away, standing in the shadows, just beyond the security light of the yard. Her son and nephew also noticed the figure. At this moment her other dog, not chained, “who’s not afraid of anything”, also sees the figure and walks towards it. The dog did not growl, did not whimper, it simply walked towards the figure, then turned around and walked back and sat by Josey. The mysterious hairy figure continued to stand in the shadows quietly and motionless, not reacting to the dog’s approach, nor the witnesses. Frightened, Josey, her son and nephew retreated to the safety of the house.
Josey experienced another significant incident when her son saw red eyeshine behind the house while using a flashlight. It was approximately 3 feet above the ground. As they are watching it intently, it suddenly rises up to almost 8 feet above the ground. The distance between each eye was estimated at about 5 inches apart. After a few more seconds, it then vanishes. Eyeshine was noticed on other multiple occasions. When I asked Josey if she noticed eyeshine during the October encounter, she said “no, there was no eyeshine”. This is significant regarding the witness’ credibility as she did not embellish her story when prompted.
Over the past few months (after watching Finding Bigfoot on Animal Planet), Josey has tried tree knocks and screams which have successfully elicited return knocks and screams.
Course hair found in swimming pool. It’s not the color or length
of anyone in the family or the dogs.
One of the many footprints found which includes visible toes.
Better footprints were found earlier on, but the witness didn’t have
a suitable camera. I encouraged her to take pictures of the
entire trackway, and to place an item next to the print as a
