A wise man once said “There’s a sucker born every minute.” Chronic hoaxer and flimflam man Rick Dwyer has apparently met most of them. You may recall Dwyer as the guy who was hauling around a supposed Sasquatch body this past winter and charging rubes to take a peek at it, “Minnesota Iceman” style. Apparently he made $60,000 during this last haul, but has had to call it quits because his former promoter was threatening to go public.
In a post to his Facebook page, Dyer wrote a long and rambling confession. “Coming clean about everything is necessary for a new start,” Dyer wrote. “From this moment own (sic), I wlll speak the truth! No more lies, tall tales or wild goose chases to mess with the haters!”
This chapter in Dyer’s ongoing Bigfoot fantasy began in 2012 (some years after a previous Bigfoot hoax in 2008 to which he also confessed), when he claimed to kill an 8-foot-tall Bigfoot-like creature in Texas.
