Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Paul J. Mateja:

I spoke with witness on 12/13/04. He added the following:
He does not know exactly what he heard but it left a lasting impression on him and the others. The roar/scream lasted for about 10 seconds. It did not vary in pitch or intensity. It was very powerful and seemed to echo thru the trees – much like a shotgun blast would do. It occurred only once. The witness estimated that the sound emanated from 300-400 feet away (the submitted report stated a distance of 300 yards).

He has been interested in the paranormal since he was 11yrs old. He has had many experiences with both ghosts and UFO's and it has just solidified his beliefs. He set up this site to catalogue as much information about the paranormal in one location. He is the oldest of three and moved from the UK to the USA in 2001.
