This story is so new it's still warm. I had exchanged emails with Scott Davis last week or the week before and he told me he was working on another story regarding the hoax ( the worst hoax in history in my opinion).
Scott was nice enough to shoot me an email, informing me his story was online.
Adults paid $10 and children paid $5 to step inside the trailer and gaze at the hairy beast lying under Plexiglas in a homemade wood coffin. Online videos show people stepping up to view it with their kids.
Of course, Dyer told everyone it was real. Many of them believed it. Dyer even came up with a nickname: "Hank". He thinks of himself as a modern-day P. T. Barnum.
"I'm an entertainer," he laughed in a phone call Monday with CBS 5 News. "A myth-maker!" However, we called him something else: a liar. He laughed again. "Liar, hoaxer, myth-maker, P. T. Barnum, they all mean the same thing."
Dyer gained attention in January when he and his hired promoter, Andrew Clacy, were ready to launch the "I Told You So" tour. The traveling "Tracker Team" consisted of Dyer, Clacy, and two other men, Lynk Paul and Dale Boswell. Their first stop was supposed to be in Arizona, but was canceled when every location they contacted to host the exhibit turned them down. They moved on to New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Alabama and ultimately Florida, where the hoax finally fell apart. Literally."
Scott has links in his article that take you to the story of Chris Russell, the Spokane area SFX artist who created Hank.

Things just aren't getting any better for Ricky Dyer. All his lies, hoaxing and fraud have finally caught up to him. The funniest thing in this is Rick is still saying he shot a Bigfoot. The guy commits five hoaxes and he still expects people to believe him.
Rick has been living in a fantasy world for too long and I think he may have lost touch with reality. That's just my opinion and observations. I guess that redemption thing isn't working out for Freezer Boy. Freezer Boy is so 2008, I think I'll refer to him as Doll Boy from now on. It's 2014, times have changed and so should his name.
Rick really jumped the shark with this charade. I'm sure it will be remembered and laughed about for years to come.
