On Monday night September 15, 2008, our guest will be Don Keating from Ohio, director of the Eastern Ohio Bigfoot Investigation Center (EOBIC). Southeastern Ohio ..., 22 Aug 2008 [cached] Southeastern Ohio area Bigfoot investigator Don Keating watches a video on the Fox News Web site about the discovery of a Bigfoot body found in Georgia.
Don Keating, founder of the Eastern Ohio Bigfoot Investigation Center, said his initial reaction was that it was a hoax.
"There have been claims like this in the past, Keating said."After 25 years as a Bigfoot researcher, just a claim that someone has the body of Bigfoot in the freezer doesn't convince me.
"Honestly on an 'excited' scale of one to 10, I'm about a three.I'm from Ohio, but I take Missouri's motto, 'The Show Me State.' Show me that reputable scientists have studied it, dissected it and can say that it's the body of a previously unclassified primate."
Keating said there have been other people who have claimed to have found the body of Bigfoot.
"One person claimed to have a live, young Bigfoot but when the media showed up they said it had escaped," Keating said. - Live * Learn * Work * Play, 6 April 2012 [cached]

Don Keating, chairman of the Bigfoot Study group, described to the Eighth Annual Bigfoot Conference his close encounters with the not-so-mythical creature who has been sighted in countried around the world.

And Don Keating, who heads the Eastern Ohio Bigfoot Investigation Center in Newcomerstown, doubts that Wallace was responsible for the Buckeye Bigfoot.
"I don't think he was 9 feet tall in a white suit," Keating said. "I've seen the creature itself - Sept. 15, 1985, four miles south of Newcomerstown, no more than 35 feet away. Within 10 miles of my own home, I've seen footprints. It's really difficult to doubt your own eyes."
Keating doesn't doubt his eyes, and he isn't much bothered if someone else does. He got interested in Bigfoot more than 20 years ago after reading the book "Sasquatch: The Apes Among Us," and has been doing "active research" since 1984. He publishes a newsletter on the subject and has produced several videos about his findings.
On April 5, he'll be the host for the 15th annual Bigfoot Conference at the David Barber Civic Center, west of Interstate 77 in Newcomerstown. From small beginnings, the six-hour expo has grown to attract hundreds of believers and skeptics as the nation's longest-running conference devoted to Bigfoot. Its purpose, Keating said, is not to convince people that the creature exists in Ohio or anywhere else, but to present alleged evidence that it might.

Keating, who has seen hoaxes before, wasn't discouraged or deterred by the Wallace family's claim. He wonders if it might be old Ray's final joke, maybe even stipulated in his will.
"I find it very morbid to begin with, that less than 10 days after he died his family members were making these outrageous claims," he said.
Northeast Ohio has Grassman, which Keating calls an urban legend but identifies as the same elusive creature.
So the search goes on, and Keating has been rewarded by sightings of bald eagles and cougars while tromping wintry woods and fields. But skeptics tend to pass on invitations to join his unarmed, late-night prowls, and he knows that film is too easily faked to serve as proof of Bigfoot.
"The scientific community wants a body," he said, and he doesn't expect to produce that. Not Yeti, anyway.
