Report # 44309 (Class B)
Submitted by witness on Sunday, February 16, 2014.
Beaver Run Reservoir area, 28 miles East of Pittsburgh, motorist sighting around midnight in Winter
COUNTY: Westmoreland County
LOCATION DETAILS: None
NEAREST TOWN: delmont
NEAREST ROAD: 66
OBSERVED: I picked up my uncle from work. We were traveling down Rt. 66 towards Delmont. We were traveling up the hill where the rvs are sold on the right hand side near the gas facility. I was driving at 45 MPH When my uncle says ” what the hell is that?” I asked what he saw and his reply was “whatever it is it was walking on two feet. The sighting was quick no longer then 5-6 seconds at a distance of 70 yards on a cloudless moon lit night.My uncle said the subject was walking up the steep embankment that is covered in almost a foot of snow and bare of trees or brush behind the rv building on a horizontal path on two legs towards the woodline on top of the hill. He described the color as a uniform black. With no distinguishing clothing. The size he said was at least his size maybe bigger. my uncles is 6’4” and 250 pounds and he even said it was the size that caught his eye. We can’t think of any reason a person would try to traverse such a steep incline or even going to the top of the hill cause there is nothing but woods once u reach the top. My uncle said it was spooky because he couldn’t think of any reason either. I laughed and jokingly said it was bigfoot and with that my uncle started rambling about even if it was. No one would believe us. So I am contacting you to see if you guys could maybe solve this for us.
ALSO NOTICED: I asked about the arm length but he could not be sure how far the arms extended down the legs.
OTHER WITNESSES: Uncle
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 11:40 pm
ENVIRONMENT: Steep open hillside with no vegetation behind rv sales on RT66 outside delmont.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Amy Bue:
I spoke to the witness and found him credible. He added this to his account:
Although when he first submitted the report he did so for his uncle, the witness did confirm that he had also gotten a glimpse of the figure. He said that what struck them both as odd is how it was walking easily up a snowy hill at a 70 degree incline without the use of its hands or arms, without zigzagging, and at a good pace in 6” of snow.
It was dark out, but the moon allowed them to see its silhouette. He said it had very broad shoulders. The arms stayed at its side, and there was no evidence of clothing in the freezing cold weather.
The witness suggested that they stop and look for tracks, but as they were unarmed, his uncle was nervous and didn’t want to stop.
