Bigfoot News | Bigfoot Lunch Club: Tri-State Bigfoot Changes Leadership

www.bigfootlunchclub.com [cached]

Keating holds a plaster cast of a large footprint. "If I get a report (of Bigfoot activity) I will investigate it," Keating said, but I will not devote as much time as I have in the past." At the TimesReporter.com they announce the Tri-State Bigfoot changing of the guard; from Don Keating to Marc A. DeWerth of the Ohio Bigfoot Organization.

...
Don Keating was the organizer of the Ohio Bigfoot Conferences and in 2009 allowed an entertainer who claimed to be a TV producer and an expert on the New Zealand variety of Bigfoot to speak on those fake credentials.
...
After investigating the Bigfoot phenomenon for more than three decades, Newcomerstown native Don Keating is turning over leadership of the Tri-State Bigfoot Study Group to his hand-chosen successor. While Keating is not totally withdrawing from the search for Bigfoot, he wants to devote more time to his interest in meteorology and weather, having founded "Ohio Weather" and ohiowx.com in late 2010. Keating, who left Newcomerstown in 2006 and now resides in Cambridge, intends to be a big part of Sunday's "Ohio Bigfoot Conference 2012" in Cambridge. He also plans to hold Bigfoot study group meetings in August, October and December. "If I get a report (of Bigfoot activity) I will investigate it," Keating said, but I will not devote as much time as I have in the past." The 49-year-old has found what he calls "interesting artifacts in the ground. Although he knows some to be fake, others tracks appear to be real. After more than 30 years of trying, Keating has never been able to obtain any body parts that scientifically can be proven as being from a Bigfoot, also known as a Sasquatch. "We just don't have the scientific evidence," he said. Keating began his interest in Bigfoot in 1980 by writing an article on the topic of an alleged sighting near Newcomerstown. He officially started investigating in July 1984, and he's been holding conferences since March 1989. Keating is turning over most of the group's reins to Bigfoot researcher Marc A. DeWerth of the Ohio Bigfoot Organization.
...
DeWerth said Keating asked him last fall to be his successor, "which after some thinking and family discussion, I gladly accepted."

Keating's investigations into about 100 Bigfoot sightings - including the famed Minerva Bigfoot case of 1978 - never ended with conclusive evidence of a huge, hairy beast that walks like a man, emits a pungent odor and can bust loose with a blood-curdling scrowl - half scream and half howl. ... And why, they ask, hasn't a Bigfoot lumbered out of the shadows of the wilderness and waltzed into a Wal-Mart parking lot? . Keating's Bigfoot odyssey started in 1984, after he read the book "Sasquatch: The Apes Among Us. ... The Internet, stuffed with Web sites devoted to Bigfoot, is a breeding ground for baloney, Keating said.

For over 20 years, Don Keating has been organizing and hosting a bigfoot conference in an area he has named the Sasquatch Triangle. It has grown to be the marquee bigfoot related event east of the Mississippi, boasting attendance in excess of 400 enthusiasts and consistent praise from those in attendance.

The Caytons stuck to their story, said Shannon, Galloway and Donald Keating, a Bigfoot investigator from Newcomerstown.

Keating, who founded the annual Bigfoot conference in Newcomerstown and the Tri-State Bigfoot Study Group, said the Minerva story stands out among the hundred or so he's probed.
"Back in '85, when I spoke with the family, and again in '91, their reports were the same practically word for word as they were in '78," he said.

Keating, who founded the annual Bigfoot conference in Newcomerstown and the Tri-County Bigfoot Study Group, said the Minerva story stands out among the hundred or so he's probed.
"The 'Minerva Monster' episode ... appears to be one of the longest lived series of events that hasn't changed at all during the past 26 years," he said. "Back in '85, when I spoke with the family, and again in '91, their reports were the same practically word for word as they were in '78."
"If you had a list of the top 10 sightings in Ohio based on credibility or believability," Keating said, "Minerva would easily be in the top three."
