Matilda - Erickson Project
Dr. Ketchum and Adrian Erickson along with many other participants in the DNA Study held a press conference in Dallas TX today. Featured was some of Erickson's facial footage of "Matilda".  The Dallas/Fort Worth CBS, ABC and NBC affiliates were in attendance along with a documentary crew from France. Most of the Dallas print media was represented. 

The CBS affiliate promised a story would be aired tonight and later posted on their website.

I will keep you up to date as more news becomes available. Below is the release that went out to the press. 


DALLAS, Oct 1 - On October 1, the Sasquatch Genome Project will screen never-before-seen high-definition video of Bigfoot subjects inhabiting the forests of North America. The exclusive footage comes from the long-awaited Erickson Project, a multi-site effort led by entrepreneur Adrian Erickson to capture definitive video and DNA evidence from the elusive Sasquatch.

The Sasquatch Genome Project, led by Dr. Melba Ketchum, is the group responsible for the 5-year study and genomic sequencing of Sasquatch DNA, "Novel North American Hominins, Next Generation Sequencing of Three Whole Genomes and Associated Studies," that passed scientific peer review in January and was published in February of this year. In conjunction with the screening of the new Erickson footage, the DNA study will be made available for all online as open-access at sasquatchgenomeproject.org

Adrian Erickson will present his HD footage accompanied by researcher Dennis Pfohl, who personally captured video and collected DNA samples from Sasquatch individuals. Dr. Ketchum will also present physical Sasquatch samples used in the DNA study and new specimens under ongoing investigation, and discuss sample chain of custody, study results, and bias encountered from the scientific establishment.

WHAT: Press conference screening of never-before-seen HD video of Bigfoot and explanation of 5-year DNA study and new physical specimens

WHEN: Tuesday, October 1, 2013, 10:00 AM CT

WHERE: Churchill Recreation Center, 6906 Churchill Way, Dallas, TX 75230

WHO: Dr. Melba Ketchum, DVM, director of the Sasquatch Genome Project and lead author of the DNA study "Novel North American Hominins, Next Generation Sequencing of Three Whole Genomes and Associated Studies"

          Dennis Pfohl, manager of the Erickson Project, videographer and DNA sample collector


  1. Scott, what are your thoughts on the authenticity of the video footage? The reason I ask, is that from your own research, you`ve shown that the Bigfoot are very much aware of your cameras, even at distance, so it`s puzzling how they managed to get such close footage of Matilda.


    1. The footage is from a long term habitation location, the Bigfoot has been fed for many years. I know the people who got the footage and I trust them

    2. Thanks for the reply Scott, that makes sense. It must give you a bit of hope too, that eventually you may be able to end up in the same position of trust with your local Bigfoot and get similar footage. Keep up the good work buddy.

    3. Anyone with any sense and who have seen them up close and in person can tell this is complete BS...its laughable to say the least...i can point out everything wrong with this footage...its the same old story...im over it. But I'll let you wannabe hacks have your fun...lol!

  2. I personally struggle with the Matilda footage. It seems a lot like a Wookie. That alone does not discount it, since Lucas my have seen a Bigfoot up close. Also, there may be more then 1 species of Bigfoot, What Mark said about the camera makes me even a little more skeptical about the footage.

  3. Compare Matilda to photos of any human or ape. In comparison even Patty looks real. Matilda has nothing that resembles an actual creature, other than a man in a badly made suit.

    Also, why would anyone contribute hair samples to a DNA study? It makes not sense. The hair samples get very little attention in the paper.

  4. Thanks for the great news and updates Scott. Outstanding is the word of the day! And,AWESOME!!

  5. Scott. I think Matilda does look an awful lot like the image I sent you. I'm starting to believe, as I've stated on Shawn's blog, absent all humor related posts, that she's real and very similar to what I photographed. M

    1. send the photo again to scott.e.carpenter@gmail.com

  6. Justin claims he shot not 1, but 2 unknown bipeds. He is or has some experience as a taxidermist, yet he took no specimen that day ? He then returned later to find some evidence ... then sent that specimen on to Dr. Ketchum. That specimen was determined to be "BF" and was included in her larger, published study.
    Dr. Sykes bothered to test Justin's boots for DNA ( unfortunately it was to degraded to be of value).
    Bart believes Justin's story and he has personally filmed NV footage of large bipeds but he doesn't trust or believe the Ketchum results that Scott defends and that also support the Sierra kills story ?
    Based upon a later, independent test that came back as bear, is the Ketchum study invalid and Justin's story a lie ? How can the story be true and the DNA be bear ??
    Help me understand.

    1. Have a blog page all about it

  7. Amateurs acting like pros..lol! Like your elementary blog makes a bit of difference...i could write a blog on rocket science...doesn't make me one though.
