Steve Kulls issues his time line of events

Here is Kulls' claim of events as posted on his site:



June 16 - Whitton & Dyers site created

July 9 - Whitton states on video that they've recovered a Bigfoot "corpse". Coincidentally after Whitton is released from hospital from being shot.

July 25 - I issue challenge to get them to come on Radio Show

July 28 - Dyer asks me to call him, speak with him. I can't get him to crack, asks who is Tom Biscardi.

July 28 - I put Biscardi in contact with them.

July 28 - Dyer appears on my Radio Show

July 29 - Called and thank Dyer for being on show. Biscardi tells me Dyer stated they sold the "corpse" to the National Enquirer.

July 30 - I find out they did not sell body to National Enquirer as they stated to us personally, and attorney mentioned on radio show knew nothing of a bigfoot body. Biscardi calls me and tells me Dyer and Whitton want him to deal with the body exclusively.

July 30 - Both Whitton and Dyer appear on Biscardi's Radio show

July 31 - I call SFB VP Bob Schmalzbach and tell him I think this is a con, he needs to talk to Biscardi. He tells me to call him. I do get a voicemail. I'll cll in the early AM.


Aug 1 - I call Biscardi and advise him of some revealing information about Dyer, I believe this is a con. Biscardi says he'll get to the bottom of it. Receive a phone call, from Biscardi, wants me to write an interim contract. Tells me he's going to get DNA.

Aug 2 - Biscardi calls and when asked states he cannot speak about what he saw. Calls later saying that he was "Right there when the DNA was cut from the body". States "This thing has incredibly thick skin"

Aug 4 -Contract stated my name as the introductory party as my only involvement. Told that the DNA is being hand delivered to Dr. Curt Nelson


Aug 9 - Biscardi told me that tomorrow he's taking the measurements, and taking pictures.

Aug 10 - Biscardi describes the body, tells me about the eyes, the teeth, and genitalia.

Aug 11 - Biscardi forwards me an email from Dr. Nelson stating the DNA amplification size was consistent with human/ape and was going to be sequenced.

Aug 13 - I was given picture of alleged corpse. I had issues with the body. Biscardi sees my doubts tells asks me if he "would drop 50 large if this wasn't the real thing, I saw it".

Aug 14 - Saw comparisons of pictures to costume. Expressed it to Biscardi who told me he saw it and its not a costume, its the real thing. Crew picks up freezer from Whitton and Dyer, give them $50K. Crew thought it was supposed to be defrosted but they found it frozen. when I heard "corpse" was in transport I buy my plane ticket.

Aug 15 - Depart airport arrive in Indianapolis at 4:10PM EST. In flight during press conference. At Press conference (Palo Alto, Ca) Whitton describes how they cam across "corpse" etc. Biscardi states He touched it, smelled it, felt it amongst other deceptions.

Aug 15 - I am driven to location in Indiana, outside of Muncie in a rural community. There are no TV's however I see a few snippets of Whitton on a computer at the press conference.

Aug 16 - Ice melts to where I can get a hair sample. I examined hairs and determine they are not hairs. We burn it an it balls up into a melted wad, uncharacteristic of hair. We begin speed thaw using a salamander heater, and eventually pull a rubber foot out. Advise Biscardi who is unusually calm about it.

Aug 16 - Biscardi calls (two of the crew and investor are not present at the time) and he wants to fill the freezer up with water, freeze it, release it back to Whitton & Dyer and we'd make a statement that the public pressure was too much on them and they took their body back, and place a gag order on it, never speak of it again. I staunchly object and would not participate in it.

Aug 16 - I talk with Whitton to return the money, he states they don't have it and the only want to deal with Biscardi. Biscardi calls back and claims that Whitton & Dyer will sign a promissory note and confession the next morning before they leave for home. I draw up the documents. I try to be extricated but it would be a great burden on my friends and would place one at risk of safety driving there to pick me up. (Did not want him falling asleep at wheel).

Aug. 17 - Whitton and Dyer left before their scheduled meeting with Biscardi. Biscardi wants press there to expose it as a hoax, I am not able to leave because of this. I prepare a statement. Monday is a no go for home either now.

Aug 18 - Bob Schmalzbach removes many of the separation items in the statement. Media shows up and statement is transmitted. They are angry because of this position of separation.

Aug 18 - Squatchdetective Radio airs I announce the hoax at 10:10 PM, am flooded by several questions about Whitton, Dyer, etc. Last callers lower the boom on Biscardi. I am in the presence of Biscardi's son and close friend, if I agreed on the lying at that point it could have risked me physical harm. Why I responded the way I did by not answering. Not denying either. When asked about Biscardi's complicity, I stated "I don't believe so." At the time I did not. But I needed to review the conference as well as other materials and digest.

Aug 18 - Everyone is enraged I didn't call out Biscardi that night...I will not succumb either to peer pressure, to state a popular opinion. I needed to get my "ducks in a row." I had to get my head clear...and relevant facts entered. I also learn from a source that the DNA report he sent me on the 11th most likely was altered.

Aug 19 - I leave 5+ hours early for the airport, and soon as my "handlers" leave I get the word out of what had occurred, the deceptions. I apologized to listeners of the previous show for not being able to tell it like it is. My could have waited. I am physically and mentally exhausted. Officially break ties with Tom Biscardi and his company. I arrive home at 11:30PM from airport.

Aug 20 - Whitton and Dyer state Biscardi and I coached them. I issued statement stating the above involvement was all I've had, I never met them or even been to Georgia this year. I Agree to take polygraph if anyone volunteers one. I Issue a cease and desist letter to Biscardi for any attempt at communication to me.

Aug 21 - I appear on Fox and Friends at 6:50AM and reveal the deceptions of Tom Biscardi now believing he was complicit in the hoax based upon the DNA email and statements made.

Aug 22 - updated to reflect the facts in this matter.

You can decide for yourselves if you feel he's "Telling it like it is".
Note that HE had cause and proof that it was a hoax on August 16th during the thaw out. Since then he's appeared on his show twice and has refused to name Tom Biscardi as part of the scam. Only on August 21, probably after seeing the beating he was taking in the forums, does he decide to name Biscardi, on Fox News, as being involved.

Folks, people have left Kulls standing by himself-Friends and business associates alike. They do not want to be associated with someone who has lost all credibility.........and I don't blame them.

Ask yourself this question: Would I sacrifice my beliefs, career, name, integrity and trustworthyness for Tom Biscardi or his crew?

Certain Links removed from this Blog

I have removed from my list of links the Squatch Detective, BF Trackers and The Bigfoot Radio Show. I have left all of the broadcasts and news reports in tact. My decision to remove these links is based on the fact that I no longer find those involved to be credible on any level. I will continue to cover any pertinent information and also continue to weed through all of the nonsense. Over the coming days and weeks, I'll be focusing on diversifying the blog abit and making new contacts.
Also, I would like to thank all of you who have stopped by and left comments and read the blog. Your comments are always welcomed and much appreciated.

Squatch Co-Host Announces His Departure

Billy Willard has posted the following announcement:

Hello all:

This is Billy Willard and I would like to make the following announcement:

I have severed my ties from Steve Kulls and Squatchdetective as well as from Squatchdetective Radio effective immediately. I spoke to Steve a few minutes ago and informed him of this decision. Although many of you may not understand, this was extremely hard for me to do. I have been helping Steve with the radio show for a while now and have really enjoyed it and enjoyed his friendship. I am not and will not bad mouth Steve; I’m keeping it simple and just leaving his group, organization and radio show. I wish Steve and Squatchdetective all the best. I feel that stretching this news out any further than what it is has already gone would be counterproductive. The supposed Bigfoot body was a fake, TB said he touched it, poked it, prodded it, so on and so forth, he was involved and he has been caught red handed.

As you all have heard from me from the beginning, I don’t completely agree and have differing opinions as to how this all went down. In my opinion, TB and his group are just as involved in this latest fiasco as the GA boys are. In my eyes, they are on an equal scale. I voiced my opinion to Steve many times that TB should not be made to look like he smells like a bed of roses, but I feel that is not how things have come across. TB and the team should NOT be clear of any wrong doing in this latest mess.

I’m not going to lie to anyone about anything I have been told, never have, never will. If you have questions, please let me know. All I ask is that you give me some time to answer as my work has greatly suffered during all this. As you all know, if you don’t do any work, you don’t get paid.

As for my future, I will continue to operate Sasquatch Watch of Virginia. I’ve met a lot of great folks and I’m not going to let a set back like this stop me from my purpose, that being to research this creature we all call Bigfoot. I greatly enjoyed doing the radio show and I met a lot of great folks there also, including many eyewitnesses of the creature. There is nothing I love more than listening to folks who have had their own encounters. Therefore; we will be starting a new radio show called the Sasquatch Watch Radio Show in the near future. We will likely keep it on the BlogTalk Radio network. I will make a future announcement concerning what, when, where and all that stuff at a later date. For right now, I want to step back, take a deep breath, get some work done and get some long, needed sleep.

Thank you all for your attention and remember, I will answer questions as I have available time to do so.

Billy Willard
Sasquatch Watch of Virginia

Slowly but surely the end of the Biscardi machine is emminent! There are those in this BF Community who will not rest until they have put an end to it.

Squatch "D" Self Destructs

As promised here is last night's broadcast:

Kulls claims limited involvement intially and only claims to have introduced the parties. Thanks for "telling it like it is" Steve. He continues by referring to Biscardi as a "certain person" and a "certain individual" and proceeds to play the victim role. Kulls does admit that he was not under any contract or gag order to keep quiet so this is yet another lie he told.
So much for "telling it like it is".
Becky Sawyer "relayed" a few questions to Kulls and he danced around the issues.
Billy Willard hasn't jumped ship yet, so from that we can presume he is fully involved or has a very difficult time making friends. Kulls promises that NEXT Monday he will be "raw and Uncensored" and will answer all questions. He also claims he never met Dyer or Whitton in person but only spoke with them over the phone once or twice. This show was every bit as pathetic as the previous night's show.

On another note, various media outlets have announced that Clayton County Chief of Police Jeff Turner is going forward with termination proceedings against Whitton.

In honor of the GA Boys new found infamy and job loss, here's a video dedication that I know you all will enjoy:

Deconstructing the Squatch



I'm quite certain that if you are here reading this blog then you also heard the shameful display that was the squatchdetective radio show broadcast on Aug. 18, 2008.
After more than a half-hour of Billy Willard's stall tactics, Steve Kull made a statement resembling if not identical to the one posted at the SFB site. I have included the statement as it is posted:

Good afternoon. I am Steve Kulls Executive Director of and Host of Squatchdetective Radio. I am here with Bob Schmalzbach, Vice President of Searching for Bigfoot, Inc. I had been invited to be a witness of the thawing of the alleged Bigfoot Body by the Searching for Bigfoot team. As an independent researcher, it has been's goal to obtain proof positive in all cases when either trying to substantiate a claim or debunk it, so as there is no question to the matter's certainty. Having worked in the past, with Searching for Bigfoot, Inc., I understand that it has always been their corporate goal, “to tell it like they see it, as it happens, and when it happens”. In my organization's limited involvement with Searching For Bigfoot, Inc. it is and has been the goal of both organizations to obtain the truth in this and all matters.

On July 9th, 2008, Matthew Whitton and Ricky Dyer placed a video on Youtube making the claim they had recovered the body of a Bigfoot body. Their website, also echoed the sentiment. At that time I had doubts and followed the story for two weeks when on July 25th, 2008 I placed a video response to challenge them to come on to Squatchdetective Radio on July 28th , 2008.

On July 14th, 2008 an article was published where Whitton released a statement to his local newspaper, the Clayton Times Daily stating that they had recovered the body of a Bigfoot.

The afternoon of July 28th, 2008, Ricky Dyer asked if I would call him and after interviewing him using various forensic interviewing techniques, which I have been trained on, I could not get an accurate read on him as I was seeing deception on numerous things, but insisted he had a body in his possession. At one point he asked me who Tom Biscardi was. I immediately surmised however their motive was financial.

After concluding my one plus hour long phone call with Dyer I called the CEO of Searching for Bigfoot, Tom Biscardi, and we discussed the matter. We, at that time decided it best to turn the investigation over to Mr. Biscardi and his team. My involvement in the remainder of the process was as an independent observer.

The following are my observations and the facts as I understand and know them:

On August 1st, 2008 Tom Biscardi traveled to Georgia and on August 2nd was given a sample, allegedly, from the corpse, for DNA testing. The DNA was hand delivered to Dr. Curt Nelson of Michigan and a chain of custody of the said sample was maintained from the time it was received from Ricky Dyer and Matthew Whitton.

On August 4th, 2008 both Matthew Whitton and Ricky Dyer entered a legally binding contract with Searching For Bigfoot, Inc .recognizing the fact that Searching for Bigfoot, had absolutely nothing to do in the demise or storage of the corpse until such time as it was transferred to Searching For Bigfoot for the benefit of scientific study, marketing and promotion.

On August 10th, 2008 Tom Biscardi received an email from Dr. Nelson that after the amplifications of two of the three samples, that the size of the DNA was consistent with human/ape DNA.

On or about August 12th, 2008, Matthew Whitton and Ricky Dyer requested an undisclosed sum of money as an advance, expected from the marketing and promotion, and as a good faith gesture of the contract.

On August 14th, 2008, after signing a transfer receipt for the amount money requested and counting said money, Matthew Whitton and Ricky Dyer led the Searching for Bigfoot Team to a location and turned over a freezer with something appearing large, hairy, and frozen in ice.

On August 15th, 2008, Tom Biscardi, Ricky Dyer and Matthew Whitton held a press conference at the Cabana Hotel in Paolo Alto, California, announcing that the corpse of a creature fitting the description known as “Bigfoot” had been discovered. A police officer of seven years, on medical leave, labeled as a hero for being wounded in the line of duty, got up in front of the world and told the world of how he and Ricky Dyer uncovered this creature. This has since been proven a lie. It is notable that Rick Dyer insisted on this press conference and told Tom Biscardi he would not release the “body” unless the conference was held on this specific date.

On August 16th, 2008 the freezer containing the alleged corpse arrived with the Searching For Bigfoot Team. I arrived on location at 6PM to provide initial verification examination, biohazard control and consult for security measures at the location. At that time the ice was being thawed slowly without aid, to prevent any decomposition of the alleged corpse. We estimated that the freezer and its contents weighed over 1500 pounds and it would take several days or longer to thaw completely.

On August 17th, 2008 Searching for Bigfoot Team Director of Field Operations, TJ Biscardi and myself, were up early to discover that some hair was now exposed. I extracted some from the alleged corpse and examined it and had some concerns. Bob Schmalzbach arrived and concurred. We burned said sample and said hair sample melted into a ball uncharacteristic of hair.

At that time we contacted Mr. Biscardi who gave us permission to begin an expedited melting process. We set up a salamander heater to heat the freezer. Within one hour we were able to see the partially exposed head, as I was now able to touch it, I was able to feel that it seemed mostly firm, but unusually hollow in one small section. This was yet another ominous sign. Within the next hour of thaw, a break appeared up near the feet area. As the team and I began examining this area near the feet, I observed the foot which looked unnatural, reached in and confirmed it was a rubber foot.

At that point we immediately contacted, Tom Biscardi and advised him of the situation and he began to take action on his end. Later that day, Tom Biscardi informed us that both Matthew Whitton and Ricky Dyer admitted it was a costume. They reportedly agreed to sign a promissory note and admission of what they had done, and set a meeting in their hotel room in California for 8AM on August 17th, 2008.

At that time I drew up the documents for Mr. Biscardi. On August 17th, 2008 Tom Biscardi went to the hotel where Dyer and Whitton were staying and found that they had left. At this time action is being instigated against the perpetrators of this fraud. Tom Biscardi asked us to contact you, the press, and share all that we have discovered.

The motives behind this fraud are still unknown at this time. It is still unclear why Whitton who, being a police officer for the Clayton County Police Department in Georgia got up before the world and lied and was complicit in a scheme to defraud in a felonious manner.

At this time the victim of this series of deceptions, Searching for Bigfoot, Inc., is seeking justice for themselves and for all the people who were deceived by this deception. Due to this event peoples lives have been disrupted and many people, so wanting vindication about there prior experiences were hurt. Let us all try to be mindful of such.

On behalf of myself I can say with certainty Matthew Whitton and Ricky Dyer not the best Bigfoot trackers in the world!

Thank you.

Written by Steve Kulls

Unfortunetly, I am currently unable to find a copy of the broadcast available for download but you can be certain when it's available, it will be here. During the latter part of the broadcast Kulls, Sawyer and Willard seemed upbeat as they were receiving positive re-enforcement from the "callers" who appeared to have been hand picked.

One fine young lady named "Kathy" got through and stunned Kulls into silence by berating him for lying about Biscardi's role in this circus. This was the greatest moment of the show.

Afterwards, I dropped by a couple of the forums to catch the buzz and found that the bright folks at the BFF had already started summarily executing all that is Squatch Detective.
Kulls and Sawyer were eviscerated and called out on their out-right lies and lack of integrity. I feel that the "Squatch" has been sufficiently Squashed.

I have given Kulls credit for maintaining an even keel during the course of this incident but I found his defense of Biscardi shameful and it destroyed Kulls credibility................and folks, If you're in the business of hunting a large, hairy bipedal primate--often times your credibility is all you have!

Allegedly, there is another squatch radio show scheduled for tonight and we're being offered the "Real Story". I will of course give my review of this pending show, if only for the comedic factor.

Steve, If I can't trust you to tell me the truth the first time, what makes you think that anything else you say has any merit. You have disappointed alot of people who believed in you and anything you have investigated or ever will investigate is now suspect.
You sir, are the Captain of that sinking vessel.
In a word, that I saw alot of last night, you are DONE!

An Appeal for calm by the Squatch-D

Steve Kulls posted a statement on his blog a few days ago appealing for calm and promising to call it like he sees it without any BS. I'm all for it because I like the guy and I think he has some integrity about him and he will tell the truth.......but He's also a business man. Were it me, I'd blow the whistle as soon as I found out there was nothing to it! ............and there is nothing to it, folks!

Biscardi and the Boys will have an "out" most likely by claiming they were trying to collect on the Bushnell Challenge.

The rest of us will go on, with a new found skepticism and a promise to be more thorough when turning over stones.

It looks like TOM was at it again, when will we ever learn?................
