One evening in the summer of 1990, a man was walking home in Marmet, W.Va., which is located in Kanawha County. In order to get home, this man had to walk through Marmet Memorial Gardens.
“It was right at dusk when I looked out into the graveyard to a far point over looking the West Virginia Turnpike,” reads the anonymous man’s report. “I saw this large creature moving about the tombstones as if to be pacing back and forth. It would stop sometimes as if to dig at a grave.”
The man described the weird creature as having a “very large, dark hairy appearance.” He also said it had “ape-like movements, shrugging of the shoulders and sometimes a hop to its step.”
The hairy creature stood about 80 to 100 yards away. Although this man had never believed in Bigfoot before or even had an interest in the subject, he knew immediately that he had crossed paths with one of the legendary creatures.
“It finally saw me and seemed to get upset when it started its shoulder movements and hopping motions, and it seemed to start toward me as if to run me away. It worked!”
An investigator from the BRFO who later interviewed this man said he felt the eyewitness to be very credible. There is a history of Bigfoot sightings in and around cemeteries. It’a the perfect place for them really, especially if they are bordering a forest. They can remain most likely undetected there at night. Only someone odd like me likes to wander around there after dark…
