Dr. Melba Ketchum Finally Opens Up Regarding Matilda The Sleeping Bigfoot
Well, folks. The famous Matilda the sleeping Bigfoot appears to be a real creature -- that's if you believe what's being suggested by Bigfoot DNA expert Dr. Melba Ketchum. According to Ketchum, while other DNA labs were throwing out Matilda's samples due to human contamination, her lab persisted and discovered that the gene responsible for hair color matches the creature in the video. She's convinced that Adrian Erickson's video of the sleeping sasquatch is legit:
OK, the Matilda questions. Her mitochondrial DNA was tested by Disotell with human results like all of our samples. He said it had to be human contamination and threw the sample away according to Adrian Erickson. Fortunately, he kept back some of the sample. He then sent some of it to Paleo Labs where they also got human mitochondrial DNA. When we got the remainder of the sample, we got the same results. But, we then tested the nuclear DNA where the differences are in the Sasquatch. First, the DNA was female and we had very few females in the study. Some of the individual genes we sequenced on this sample were human while others failed even with universal mammalian primers. This sample behaved just like the rest of the samples. To add credibility and link the sample to the videos, we tested the MC1R gene for red hair color. She sequenced human for this gene and had the mutation for red hair. We ran the 2.5 million human SNP array on her sample. Even a degraded human sample will have greater than ninety five percent of the SNPs run successfully and our degraded human control sample ran 97%. Matilda's DNA was pristine but only ran at 83%. So, her DNA was obviously not completely human. I also spoke with all three members of the Erickson team and am totally convinced that the videos are legitimate. This is especially true since the DNA findings matched her sex and hair color.
