It's important to note from the beginning that this is not a funny story. It's actually tragic for a multitude of reasons, but it is true. A Midwest man is accused of killing his friend because he believed that his buddy was going to try and feed him to Bigfoot.
It seems as though we just can't get away from Bigfoot. It wasn't all that long ago that I read of a Bigfoot and Bigfoot baby possibly being filmed in Michigan. Another piece had Bigfoot indulging a love for cheese in Wisconsin.
Not long ago, I was doing some shopping when I overheard a conversation between a little girl (I'm guessing she was about 7 or 8) and her dad about monsters. In particular, whether or not we have monsters in Illinois.
When you think of Bigfoot (or Sasquatch), you think of the Pacific Northwest or maybe even the Himalayas. Do not sleep on downstate Illinois. I'm not saying Bigfoot is roaming around Peoria but there are plenty of downstaters that think they've seen the legendary creature over the last half a century.
