Minerva Monster Screens at Ohio Bigfoot Conference

Minerva Monster will be screened at the Ohio Bigfoot Conference
"Watching 'Minerva Monster,' I was reminded of that old TV series 'Unsolved Mysteries,'"--Robert McCune, Independent Correspondent 

In the Summer of 1978 a family was convinced of seeing a bigfoot-like creature, known as the Minerva Monster, near their home. A sheriff claimed that hair samples were collected and taken to a Malone College lab. Unfortunately any trace of this evidence has since disappeared.

A movie based on the family's encounter has since been documented by first-time filmakers. The movie is another exciting feature of the Ohio Bigfoot Conference and will be screened Saturday.

Read more about the family encounter below as well as some information about the filmakers. The excerpt is from an article written by Robert McCune, an independent correspondent for

Family members described it as a big, manlike thing, with bowed legs, covered in hair. Not a man, not a bear. Some think it was Bigfoot, or in the sasquatch family. Whatever it was, the town of Minerva adopted it, and in local lore, it became the “Minerva Monster.”

The family’s story set off a sensational media storm. It blamed the creature for the rocks that pelted their house — and later, suspected it in the death of a dog. Police investigated, and after it made the newspapers, there were other “sightings” in the area. “Bigfoot hunters” descended on Minerva. Family members started to wish they had kept their “creature” to themselves.

Now this story is the subject of a documentary film by a Northeast Ohio crew, Small Town Monsters. “Minerva Monster” is directed by Seth Breedlove, of Wadsworth, and produced by Jesse Morgan and Alan Megargle, with an original score by composer Brandon Dalo.

This is clearly a passion project for these first-time filmmakers. With a camera, and little budget to work with, Breedlove and crew spent months interviewing eyewitnesses, and the sheriff and newspaper reporter who investigated the incidents nearly 40 years ago.

Watching “Minerva Monster,” I was reminded of that old TV series “Unsolved Mysteries,” on which host Robert Stack sometimes delved into the paranormal. That’s a compliment; I loved that show growing up.

NBC Affiliate Reports "Wild Man" Returns to North Texas

KTEN News of Texoma Reports return of the Wild Man a/k/a Bigfoot
"You can actually feel it in your body.  The only way I can describe it is like when a train is running real close to you and you want to just take off running," --Bill Gibson

After the news segment below you can read an excerpt from the supporting article posted on KTEN.COM - No One Gets You Closer

Bill Gibson and his family have been living in this house on the east side of town all their lives.   Bill recalls the first time he heard what people in the area call the "Wild Man of North Texas."  It was 40 years ago.

"You can actually feel it in your body.  The only way I can describe it is like when a train is running real close to you and you want to just take off running," said Gibson. 

Bill's son Jeremy was just ten years old when he first heard the sound.  He says he's been haunted by the creature ever since.

"I know what's out there.  I know it."  "What's out there?"  "Something big."

After years of silence, the Gibson's say the "wild man" has returned, waking them up in the mornings with it's howls.  But, this time they called in renowned Bigfoot hunter Tom Biscardi to investigate.

"We know that something has been through here in the last three days," Biscardi said.

We've all heard the stories.  But we can assure you, whether or not you believe in Bigfoot is the last thing on Biscardi's mind, because he says he's seen one.

"When first I started out I was a doubting thomas, excuse the pun.  But then after I saw one and I got real close, I said to myself my god," Biscardi said.

 Biscardi and his men found what they believed to be several large foot prints in a clearing about a mile away from the Gibson's home.  So, they set up a perimeter, hung bate and strapped infrared motion sensor cameras to the surrounding trees.
