Un-Freakin-Real Mr. Marlowe.........

Well folks, get a load of this.

The "Bigfoot Massacre" "speculation" has now taken a whole new sad twist.

Loren Coleman of Cryptomundo posted a letter written by Scott Marlowe of the Pangea Institute, which Mr. Marlowe has mailed to the Humbolt County D.A. Mr. Gallegos, excerpts from this fantastic tale of fantasy below:

Dear Mr. Gallegos,

"It has become necessary to correspond with you as a number of questions have arisen over newly developed material from the film which Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin took in the Bluff Creek area of Humboldt County back on October 20, 1967."

He then goes on to say,

A number of photographic experts have re-examined clarified images from the film, along with several animal experts, and concluded that the “animal” pictured in the film was actually a person afflicted with congenital generalized Hypertrichosis.

And, if that wasn't enough, we have this,

In addition to this determination, there is increasing photographic evidence that the person, or possibly persons, so afflicted were shot and killed by others in the Patterson/Gimlin party who remain unnamed by Mr. Gimlin who survives Robert Patterson.

Read the full letter to Humbolt County D.A. Mr.Gallegos at Cryptomundo And seriously, you need to read this full letter.

Don't those excerpt's just beat all?

First of all, I thought this was simply "speculation" on the part of M.K. Davis and John Johnsen? When did it turn into a theory worthy of criminal charges? Did Mr. Davis and Mr. Johnsen possibly forget they had rendered this "expert opinion"? Is this just the work of Scott Marlowe?

Mr. Marlowe states "a number of photographic experts". Well, first of all who are these Experts? Does "a number" refer to M.K. Davis and John Johnsen?

Who are these other people in the Patterson/Gimlin party that are being accused of something so horrible Scott Marlowe thinks criminal charges are in order?

Mr. Marlowe makes some very damning statements in this letter,

Yet offers nothing by way of substantial proof. I am willing to bet the D.A. is not going to consider 40 year old enhanced footage "substantial proof" for a winning case. This is even weaker if you evaluate it on a circumstantial basis. I am feeling fairly certain M.K. Davis and John Johnsen were doing more than "speculating" when he had this conversation with Scott Marlowe, so when did this stop being "speculation", shoot by theory, and turn into an "expert opinion rendered" to Mr. Scott Marlowe? If this is simply speculation on the part of Mr. Marlow, then I guess I (and everyone else)who heard the comments made by John Johnsen and M.K. Davis on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory were right in our assessment. I'm not sure where else either Davis or Johnsen discussed this alleged event... I have asked Mr. Johnsen to explain his role in this in full. He has refused to answer even the easiest questions.. So, where could Mr. Marlow have gotten the information, that lead him to this horrific conclusion??

I am sure the D.A. takes our legal system as seriously as I do

And, once he stops laughing, will hopefully (if he wants to be re-elected) file this letter,in the "circular" file. Does anyone think "Patty" looks anything like the "Mexican Wolf Boy"?? Hypertrichosis?? Are you serious Mr. Marlowe? Do you think the Taxpayers of Humbolt County are going to appreciate their tax dollars being wasted on something like this? I bet you will receive a nice letter from the D.A. thanking you for your concern. But unless you have something more substantial he will regretfully tell you there is nothing he can or will do. Do you have DNA analysis from a piece of hair found that day, that proves "Patty" is a human with Hypertrichosis? Do you have a map to the bodies? I do not think the D.A. is going to buy the "Hypertrichosis" diagnosis for a second.

Witnesses? Do you have names of witnesses? Do you not understand the implication your making?

This is what happens when these outlandish theories are simply ignored within this community. M.K. Davis and John Johnsen can not even prove the possibility of this "speculation" (or is it theory now) within their own research community, yet we have a complaint filed and, a request for a criminal investigation? M.K Davis's "good friend" Henry May is on all the talk shows screaming this is just "speculation" Well this is no longer "speculation", and I do not think it ever was simply "speculation". I have the sneaking suspicion one or more of these people have been building toward this move for a while now.

This move by Scott Marlowe is simply shameful.

I must be honest and say, I am truly at a loss for words. I have sat here over the last few weeks and watched as people lined up to say "M.K.'s theory hurt no one. The Johnsen and Davis "speculation" should be allowed..... yadda, yadda, yadda... Sure people can speculate all they like, it's normal and there is nothing wrong with it. This is not speculation any longer however. To make statements like this, someone has most likely been making this case for a while.

Well, this is not speculation, this is a direct accusation which carry's with it the potential for serious life altering changes and repercussions. M.K., John Johnsen or both apparently (based on Scott's letter) offered an expert opinion, that is not speculation or theory anymore.

I am sure now I will hear "M.K. and John Johnsen did not request the investigation". Well, apparently Scott Marlowe received his information from someone and based this on something said by these two men. M.K. Davis and John Johnsen are clearly named as the "photographic experts", so they are involved. Mr. Marlowe almost sounds like he is trying to protect himself, just in case Mr. Davis and Mr. Johnsen fail to do anything about what they claim has been discovered.

I have never been a big Scott Marlowe fan,

But this is not only disturbing, but disappoints me deeply. It's little wonder why we are the laughing stock of the world. Thanks Scott for giving the general public (to now include the legal community in Humbolt County) something to laugh at yet again. As someone who has devoted her life to the law, and someone who firmly believes in our right to due process, this complaint filed by Mr. Marlowe does not just make us look incredibly silly, but makes a mockery of the system I love so much.

Again, my fellow researchers.. If you feel compelled to practically french kiss every researcher that comes along, and not ask questions, do not go into an all out hissy fit, get angry at me (or anyone else) when the next letter to the D.A.'s office includes your name. We should be demanding better.... Question is..

Why aren't we?

    Scott Marlowe has acted on his own. Neither I or Davis have urged him to do this. His actions are his own and any speculation to the contrary is false. His apparent motiviation is to distance himself from any "implications of complicity". The last thing to come out of this will be the truth.

    I decided to allow your comment Mr. Johnsen. So I can tell you publically -

    This is your last post to this blog, until you answer questions being asked of you. You have much to answer for, and you refusal to do so, makes me leary of allowing any futher statements from you.

    Now you state Scott Marlowe is worried about "implications of complicity" - based on what? Did he request this analysis be done on his behalf, by you and M.K. Davis?? Why would he be worried about "complicity" if he was only an outside observer as the rest of us are?

    Like I said, many questions, with no answers in sight. Start answering simple questions or you will not be posting here anymore. My readers expect as much honesty as possible. Your "comments" are not even close.

    I cannot believe this crap. A bigfoot massacre without a shred of evidence.

    Every researcher in this field of endeavor should be cringing at the very entertainment of this ridiculous charge. And no serious person should tolerate it.

    This is the concomitant of tolerating morons who yearn for their 15 minutes of fame. Nothing more. Those who take such allegations seriously should not be allowed to contribute to the thoughtful and serious discourse in this field.

    That's all I have to say.

    This is indeed speculation run amuk to say the least.

    I have mentioned several times that M.K. Davis needed to turn his work over to a real photography analyst, especially since he was so careful to mention at the Ohio conference that he was not a photography analyst.

    If an investigation results from this (which I doubt)then he will have to turn over all of his work for examination.

    Since M.K. Davis and John Johnsen are named as two of the photographic experts who have uncovered this murder/massacre they will be the first ones who will have to undergo some real serious questioning by police department investigators, oh and by the way ducking a court subpoena in a murder investigation can lead to an arrest and charges brought.

    I also mentioned some time ago that M.K. Davis's observations up until this murder/massacre bologna were pretty much harmless, braided pony tails and such, but this observation has already caused a great deal more harm than he ever anticipated or imagined.

    Since John Johnsen has already been bragging about how this whole murder/massacre poppycock has caused him a windfall, could he have thought that a letter to the District Attorney would cause even more? Even if it wasn't sent by himself.

    Let's see, John Johnsen describes in detail M.K. Davis' observations on the internet, then Scott Marlowe sends a letter to the Humboldt Co. DA.

    I wonder, Why didn't M.K. Davis reveal his observations himself on the internet? Why didn't M.K. Davis himself, or through his attorney notify the Humboldt Co. DA? Why didn't John Johnsen himself, or through his attorney notify the Humboldt Co. DA?

    Is this a big game of Pass the Buck or what?

    Let's break this down in very simple terms. Scott Marlowe has accused someone of murder. He has presented this to a DA with, what I assume, is no evidence whatsoever.

    Draw your own conclusions from there. This is no longer a discussion on speculation or theory, a person has been accused of a heinous crime that has been reported to the authorities.

    Mr. Marlowe, I hope you sent in 10 pounds of physical, photographic, and witness evidence with your accusation. I hope you realize that in your "search for the truth", you need to have a little more to go on than speculation of a third party. Do you realize the damage you cause with such frivolous, unsubstantiated accusations against another human being?

    You sir, belong in jail, and I hope that's where your journey ends.

    Marlowe is the most nonsensical person I know in research today. How a college will allow him to run a course is beyond my imagination, but I have a feeling that may change after this debacle.
