Every year The Fringe Paranormal Project of Oklahoma plans a series of expeditions to investigate phenomenon that has yet to be explained by main-stream science. We select four case studies that will be investigated in addition to any cases accepted via requests from the public. These four expeditions will serve as the corner stone of our research efforts for the year. We plan on presenting our case studies as we finish each expedition. Currently, we are planning expeditions to investigate the following cases:
1. Oklahoma Bigfoot (SE Oklahoma)
The Kiamichi Mountains lie in a part of southeast Oklahoma that remains wild and free. Numerous expeditions have been conducted throughout the Kiamichi Mountains to find evidence of Bigfoot, and while tales of this mysterious creature abound, little evidence has been presented to support their claims.
As the legend goes, the Oklahoma Bigfoot resides near Clear Boggy Creek in Southeast Oklahoma, near the town of Honobia located high in the Kiamichi Mountains. The legendary cryptid stands between seven to eight feet tall and is covered all over with reddish brown hair. Reportedly, from eye-witness accounts, the Boggy Bottom Monster (as the Oklahoma Bigfoot is sometimes called) makes sounds that resemble that of wild birds, similar to that of the whippoorwill and owls. This creature is said to weigh in excess of 500 pounds. Witnesses have also described large eyes, a pronounced brow ridge, and a large, low-set forehead; the top of the head has been described as rounded and crested, similar to the sagittal crest of the male gorilla. Bigfoot is commonly reported to have a strong, unpleasant smell by those who have claimed to have encountered it.
Sightings of Bigfoot in Oklahoma have been reported long before statehood. For years going back to time immemorial, Native Americans would tell tales of large human-like beasts roaming through the woods. The first recorded sighting in Oklahoma happened in the Spring of 1942, where two sisters reported observing a tall hairy creature running away from them. Since then, sightings have been well documented, and happen quite frequently. Most of the sightings happen in LeFlore county, where at least 18 sightings have been reported.
While many of these sightings of Bigfoot have been proven to be hoaxes, cryptozoologists still faithfully study every reported sighting in hopes of discovering a long lost link in humanity.
Here’s a great blog post from Cryptomundo about Bigfoot in Oklahoma. Including pictures of a reported Squach! http://www.cryptomundo.com/bigfoot-report/atokabf/
Fringe Paranormal’s journey for the Boogy Bottom Monster will be the most epic of all studies in 2012. It will require a lot of determination and forest skills to succeed in what what we set out to do. Fringe is not determined to prove or disprove this monster but rather listen to the stories of the locals and try to document any data to corroborated what the locals are seeing themselves.
2. Brown Spring Cemetery Investigation (South Oklahoma)
Browns Springs is a very widely known in and around Thackerville for people from Texas dropping off dead body`s there in the spring up one of the hills is also an abandoned cemetery that is from the 1800`s when you go up there and listen you cant hear anything it is dead silence no birds or insects just silence. It is said that on a tour to the springs a girl was pulled to a grave site by something that wasn’t there. There has also been sightings of trees bleeding and sightings of a little girl standing by the headstone marked “Butch”.
Hattak Offi or The Man Dog as it is known reportedly roams the area as well. Another name for Hattak Offi is Nalusa, which translates to Long Evil Being or Long Wicked Person. With it being described as being long or tall I might venture in saying that this could possibly be some sort of Bigfoot type creature. Unfortunately not much is known about this creature to say if it is.
Due to security issues with the area at night this investigation will most likely take place during the day.
3. Dulce UFO Watch (Dulce, NM)
Dulce is a sleepy little town in northern New Mexico of about 900 population located above 7,000 feet on the Jicarilla Apache Indian Reservation. There is only one major motel and a few stores. It’s not a resort town and it is not bustling with activity. But, according to a few outsiders, Dulce harbors a deep, dark secret. The secret is harbored deep below the tangled brush of Archuleta Mesa. The secret is said to be a joint government-alien biogenetic laboratory designed to carry out bizarre experiments on humans and animals.
In the early 1960’s, a subterranean nuclear blast occurred about 30 miles southwest of Dulce, New Mexico, right off of U.S. 64. This nuclear blast was conducted under the umbrella of project Plowshare, and was named Gassbuggy. It has recently been alleged that this particular subsurface nuclear blast was used to create a hollowed out chute or chimney for development of a substation for a super-secret tunnel system attached to an underground black book project base.According to Thomas Castello, a former Dulce base security officer — this particular under-world city is a highly secret base operated by humans as well as reptilian aliens and their worker cast, the commonly encountered grays.It is here, apparently, that a multitude of experimentation projects are carried out. Primarily genetic experiments on kidnapped men, women, and children.
There are a myriad of other specialty science projects taking place at the Dulce base including, but not limited to: Atomic manipulation, cloning, studies of the human aura, advanced mind control applications, animal/human crossbreeding, visual and audio wiretapping, the list goes on…
Dulce, New Mexico is a strange place indeed. It’s a sleepy little town perched upon the Archuletta Mesa, just south of the Colorado border in northern New Mexico.
4. Oklahoma Spooklight
The Spooklight, also called the Hornet Spooklight, is a mysterious visual phenomenon allegedly experienced by witnesses in a small area known locally as the “Devil’s Promenade” on the border between southwestern Missouri and northeastern Oklahoma west of the small town of Hornet, Missouri.
Despite the fact that it is named after a small, unincorporated community in Missouri from which it is most commonly accessed, the light is most commonly described as being visible from inside the Oklahoma border looking to the west. The Spooklight is commonly described as a single ball of light or a tight grouping of lights that is said to appear in the area regularly, usually at night. Although the description of the light is similar to that of other visual phenomena witnessed throughout the world, the term “Spooklight” when standing alone generally refers to this specific case. Numerous legends exist that attempt to describe the origin of the Spooklight, one of which involves the ghosts of two young Native American lovers looking for each other.
Many have traveled to try and see the light but it seems to be selective about the time it comes out. Fringe Paranormal will set out to find the peak time of year to see this anomalous light and try to find if this phenomenon has a rational or irrational happening.
We are looking forward to conducting these case studies as well as any personal cases we take on at the request of the public. As we publish our findings we are especially looking forward to input from the public on them. Can’t wait to hear back from you!
