1933 Article About The Discovery Of A Giant Skeleton Could Be Bigfoot


According to the article, a young boy was out hunting arrowheads in a Missouri cave when he discovered the remains of a human-like skeleton of giant proportions. The description in the article sounds very similar to how many describe the appearance of bigfoot. Could this be the skeletal remains of a sasquatch, and whatever happened to the bones?

June 15, 1933, Steelville Ledger

This quiet little summer resort town of the Ozarks has just come to grips with an absorbing mystery of a sort it has never before been called upon to solve. It all came about as a result of Billy Harman's hunt for arrowheads a few weeks ago.

Poking about in Puckett's Cave in a Meramec River bluff some 10 miles northeast of here, young Harman reached for something white in a hole in the ground and, to his vast amazement came up with a handful of human bones. Soundly startled, the 16 year-old lad put them down and dashed for home. Then, after gathering his courage and some reinforcements, he went back and proceeded to dig on the site of his discovery. From the ancient accumulation of ash and limestone debris he turned up the complete skeleton of an 8 foot giant. The grisly find was brought to Dr. R. C. Parker here and stretched out to its enormous length in a hallway of his office where it has since remained the most startling exhibit Steelville has ever had on public view. People have come from far and near to examine it and fire a broadside of questions at the harassed doctor.

Who was this giant? When did he live? To what race did he belong? Was he simply a freak among people of normal stature, or did he belong, possibly, to some extinct race of stone-age giants who roamed over these hills before the coming of the Indian? What was the manner of his death? Did he come to his end from natural causes or does that lone arrowhead found among the bones tell its own story of violence? Was he, perhaps, an Ozark Goliath brought down by some David of the Missouri hill country who used a bow and arrow instead of a sling?

If anybody can answer these questions he is pretty likely to find a warm welcome in Steelville, especially at the hands of Dr. Parker. Anthropologists are scarce hereabouts and the doctor's fund of information about such things was exhausted in the first 20 minutes. An appeal to Dr. Ales Hrdlicka, anthropologist of the National Museum in Washington and a celebrated authority on primitive races is expected to help. Dr. Parker has written to him, offering to forward the skull or the whole skeleton, if necessary , for scientific study.

  1. Just more Bigfoot b ullshit. It's 100% not Bigfoot because Bigfoot 100% doesn't exist. The body just looks like a coyote or something. Looks nothing like a person or a non existent Bigfoot.

    3. I've seen one and heard them on different occasions.

      That makes me informed and knowledgable!

      You on the other hand are completely ignorant of the subject, but since you so lowdly and persistantly spew nothing but your bullshit oppinion--------------------------------- your an IDIOT!

    4. "That makes me informed and knowledgable!"

      This coming from someone who thinks:

      (1) That Bigfoot are nephilim.
      (2) The earth is flat.
      (3) Evolution is bullshit.
      (4) We did not go to the moon.
      (5) Cannot spell (see above)

      In fact Troll Killer is so over the top I have to believe he is just messing around. If that is the case - Bravo - well played sir, well played.

    5. Troll Killer is a guy named Leon. When he posts, simply hit him with this.

      Leon the fool, Leon the fool, show him Daniel BendOvers Buttcheeks, and watch the fool drool

    7. I've got you in my pocket that you should now have to bum lick everyone for friends whilst psychotically trolling everyone, like people don't know it's you. Your uneducated grammar sticks out like your pot belly.

    8. Hey TK!! That would indeed make you more informed, as well as feared by the ignorant!!

  2. probably not a sasquatch (the skull looks more human-like) but there have been many similar finds of giant human like skeletons that have been collected in newspaper reports over the years. it could be the race of giants natives talked about. A lot of the skeletons were said to have red hair

      Joe, lets get together with Mike B for Halloween. Mike can go as Bruce Jenner after the turn, and strike some feminine poses. You can go as Bruce Jenner before the turn and jump some "hurdles". It will be amazing!

  4. I get a kick out of the ISF footers rejoicing over their latest victory. The only thing their hero Alaskabushpilot "proved' with his latest round of photos is that he's a pathological liar with rotten teeth who lives in a homemade shack. Unbelievable....lol

    3. The ISF is like a cult. Your skepticism is judged by who questions who. If this Bushpilot character claims to have flown on the space shuttle next week and you don't question it, you're considered a good skeptic. If you question his claim in the least bit you're considered a bad skeptic or a nuisance. They don't want anyone to upset the herd.

    4. That may be so. I just want to take a look at those photos mentioned in the above post. Could someone post a link?

    5. Most adults would say to themselves... "this bush guy is full of shit", and move on with their lives.

    7. It's obvious to any objective person that APB is not playing with a full deck. I think the footers on ISF like The Shrike and the others have to support and agree with him or they risk getting kicked out of the pretend skeptic herd...or they really are just dolts.

    8. Most adults would back up his statements with a link to the pictures he referred to.

      I think he's referring to the tiny sub culture of "Bigfoot skeptics" that are obsessed with the subject like the JREF/ISF footers.

      Joe, lets sit around the campfire and listen to you tell stories about Alaska bush pilot and his 13 inch stick. You can regale us with stories about the time he introduced you to the bush and the stick. It will be amazing!

  5. Here you have photographic evidence of a very large, robust skeleton with comparative scale. Let us consult a PhD on the likely hood that such 7-8 foot tall specimens have been found all over the United States, shall we? Let's!

    "You are correct, of course, that there are reports by professionals of very tall individuals excavated from various Early Woodland mounds (I would hesitate to call a 7' or 7.5' person a "giant" . . . those heights fall within the range of human variation and don't require any kind of "supernatural" explanation). Greg Little makes the argument that there were more very tall individuals excavated from those mounds in the Eastern Woodlands than we would expect by chance (given the distribution of stature in a "normal" human population). He may be right about that, and I suspect that is the angle of your argument also. I haven't spent a lot of time looking at those cases yet, but I'll get there."
    - Andy White

    ... Now, given the photographic that has corroborating sources such as this;

    ... And given the fact that the anthropological elite of then (and now) published bureaus cataloguing such finds, and that some of the most cynical of PhD's are acknowledging that skeletons in the height range of 7-8 foot tall were reliably documented, and Sasquatch are predominantly reported in the height range of 7-8 foot; you don't have to be Einstein to work out what's gone, and is currently going on.
