TRANSCRIPTION OF RECORDING

Terri: So, go ahead and tell him about your story.
John: It was probably in 1968 or ‘69, and uh… two other guys and myself and some girls were out…
Terri: Out going parking!
John: Out messing around. And we were out in the country but we decided we’d get out and walk around this… I guess it was a farm area, I don’t… it was wooded. And uh, but they kept, you could tell it, that they kept animals there at times. And while we were walking around one of the guys kind of said that, to me and the other guy, to look back and uh see if we see anything. And when we looked back we saw a silhouette of something that looked like it was about 7-8ft tall, and it kind of didn’t smell very well, and uh so we hurried up and got the girls back to the car and took them… took them home and come back and looked all around and we never did find anything. So the next day we told the guy that owned the property because he had some animals out in that area, and he actually went out with his gun and was searching around and all he saw was…was…grass laying over and stuff like that. He couldn’t really see any footprints because it wasn’t wet or anything like that. But you could tell something had been walking around but he never did see anything. And we never did see it after that, it was just… just uh…just that one time.
Chris: And this is up near Warsaw or?
John: Yeah, it was in between North Webster and Warsaw.
Chis: Well ok.
