A newspaper reporter finally talks to Melba Ketchum. It seems her study has sequenced “three complete Sasquatch nuclear genomes” and determined the species is a human hybrid, “the result of males of an unknown hominin species crossing with female Homo sapiens.” Her 50-page manuscript containing the research and DNA findings is still in peer review at a scientific journal, but it's publication is still likely weeks away apparently. Nothing new really, but it's nice to hear this from outside the Bigfoot community echo chamber. Dr. Jeff Meldrum [also] Speaks Out Concerning Ketchum's Study. Though he found the press release "frankly premature and unprofessional given the lack of any published reviewed results," he still recommends a wait a see attitude. The critics are chomping at the bit, of course, including Ben Radford who suggests in'Bigfoot' Is Part Huuman, DNA Study Claims that the DNA used by Ketchum may have been contaminated by the people who collected and handled the specimens.
