The folks who brought you the non-story of the year are back. Loren Coleman of Cyrptomudo fame is reporting that Matt Whitton and Ric Dyer have made a deal to auction off the original fake Bigfoot body and its deep freeze coffin. Alledgedly they are in the hole by as much as $50,000 to some unnamed Indiana businessman who thought he was buying a real Bigfoot body. All civil action will be dropped against the Georgia duo. Obviously they will raise quite a bit more than the $50K they owe. They will not be keeping the remaining amount raised. Any money above and beyond the $50K will be used to fund Joshua Warren‘s Hoax Investigation Museum.
I have no idea what the Hoax Investigation Museum is, but it is going to be an extremely well-funded museum.
**UPDATE: The bidding closed at $250,283.00. Part of me suspects we will learn the auction was a hoax.
