ATLANTA -- A Web site that claimed two Georgia men had found Bigfoot says the men's claim is a fraud.
SearchingForBigfoot.com has confirmed that the two Georgia men who claimed they found Bigfoot were lying.
The Web site said that Matthew Whitton and Ricky Dyer delivered the freezer containing the reported remains of the Bigfoot the day after the press conference that they called for. It also said that Whitton and Dyer were given an undisclosed amount of money from Searching For Bigfoot before they went public with their find.
As soon as he learned it was a hoax, Clayton County Police Chief Jeff Turner moved to have Whitton fired.
