One of the “Most Knowledgeable Bigfoot Researchers in US” is Investigating a Stoutsville Bigfoot Sighting


PICKAWAY – Whether you believe or not, a lot of attention is being given to a Fairfield County sighting by leading investigators of Bigfoot in the Unites States. Matt Moneymaker of the BFRO (Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization) is investigating a sighting here in the south-central Ohio Area. Matt is the founder and lead investigator for the Bigfoot field researcher organization, and he’s remarked as one of the most knowledgeable Bigfoot researcher in the United States.

According to the report the creature was seen on December 20th 1.5 miles outside of Stoutsville in Fairfield County. Specifically, at the intersection of Winchester Southern Rd and Wyandotte Rd.

It was around 9pm. The witness states “My husband and I were driving home down Winchester Southern Rd toward St Rt 22. It was completely dark outside by this time. We were going around 60mph. My husband was on high alert for deer. We were just talking to each other when we approached the right hand turn off to Wyandotte Rd. My husband fell silent. He saw a very large, very tall, bipedal creature running toward the road from the left hand side. Within a split second I also saw this creature as it continued approaching the road at a full run. It entered into the peripheral of our headlights and came within 2-3 feet of the driver side window. Comparing the creature to our truck, it had to have been nearly 8 feet tall, as it was slightly slouched while running and was a head taller than our truck. It had blondish red fur and domed shoulder/head area. Since we were going around 60 mph as all of this happened, it ended up barely missing our truck and crossing the road behind us. We didn’t speak for 15-20 seconds until my husband finally said “What was that?!” We immediately turned around and traveled down Wyandotte Rd, in the direction it went behind us, but did not see or hear anything. We also used a spotlight from the truck to look along the road on both sides where we initially saw it but did not see any disturbance.”

The couple returned to the area the next day to look for any signs of the creature or any physical evidence left behind but didn’t find anything.

Matt Moneymaker the founder and lead investigator for the BFRO is personally looking into the case, he has talked to both witnesses and adds “I spoke with both of them by phone. They sound very credible and they run a landscaping business in the area. They were traveling north from Logan’s parents home in Stoutsville back to their home in Canal Winchester, 16 miles to the north of Stoutsville. Their child was sleeping in the back bench of the truck when the incident happened. Both witnesses are sharp and quite certain the figure was not a person in a costume. They are certain it was a real creature. It got close enough for them to see it clearly, albeit briefly. It was at least 8 feet tall. The roof of the pickup truck is 7 feet 6 inches high. The creature’s head was higher than the roof even though it was slightly hunched over when running. Why would a Sasquatch be in this area? Answer: There are many, many deer in the area. The witness has collided with deer more than once on this road. It is likely this Sasquatch was in pursuit of deer. The road it crossed was Winchester Southern Road, which is the County line between Pickaway and Fairfield County, so the Sasquatch was crossing from Pickaway County into Fairfield County.”

This sighting is rare in that we don’t get many reports coming out of the Pickaway County. If myself or The Scioto Post get any further information on this story we will be posting it! ~Cameron Jones
