  • Unsealed Bigfoot file proves Federal Bureau of Investigation tested mysterious hair sample

The FBI on Wednesday published the findings of their short-lived 1970s investigation into the existence of Bigfoot - the elusive mythical creature that's rumored to have stalked the North American wilderness for decades.

"Please understand that our research here is serious".

The results and sample were returned to Curtis for safekeeping until Byrne was anticipated "back from Nepal within a week or two". However, amateur investigators have continued to search for proof of the existence of Bigfoot, convinced that the truth is out there.

According to the documents, the hair did not belong to Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, the Abominable Snowman and Yeti, but instead they were "determined to be from a member of the deer family". "However, we have been unable to locate any references to such examinations in our files". Byrne first reached out to Cochran in August 1976, asking if Cochran could either confirm or deny the numerous stories within the Bigfoot community that hairs had been sent to the Bureau's labs for analysis.

The New York Times profiled Byrne's work in 1976. So far Mr. Byrne, though he has never seen a Bigfoot himself, has collected the details of 94 reported sightings that seem believable.

"It's a great challenge", Byrne, now 93, told CNBC in an interview when he discussed how his interest in the unusual creature has grown over the past nine decades.

But he noted that the agency sometimes makes exceptions to that policy "on a case-by-case basis, in the interest of research and scientific inquiry".

After receiving the results, Curtis wrote one final letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation expressing his gratitude for the assistance and promising to inform Byrne of the results when he returned from his trip to Nepal-rumored stomping grounds of the Abominable Snowman.

'The examination included a study of morphological characteristics such as root structure, medullary structure and cuticle thickness in addition to scale casts, ' Cochran wrote in response to Byrne.

"It was concluded as a result of these examinations that the hairs are of deer family origin", Cochran wrote to Academy of Applied Science Executive Vice President Howard Curtis early the following year. The newly released records also suggested that initial analysis on the fur turned out to be perplexing, as experts revealed that these hairs were not shed by any known creature on the continent.
