On the morning of January 30th this year, Tricia Mahmias of Locust Valley NY was walking on the beach in Bayville NY, at the Connecticut end of Long Island with her husband and two dogs. She came across and snapped this extraordinary, ugly dead animal. It was her son Michael, an Environmental Scientist, who filled her in later about the Montauk Monster. She checked out the Newsday piece online: “And lo and behold it is the same thing – and in very good condition. There is no way this is a raccoon or any other kind of animal I have ever seen before.”

On March 20 just past, student Jacob Trevino reported, “Me and a couple of friends traveled to stay on Galveston Island (Crystal Beach to be exact) for Spring Break. We were driving along the beach listening to our friends tell us about this “thing” they saw while running along the beach earlier that morning. So we went to go see it. I saw it, and had no clue what it was. It had a beak, webbed feet, and looked like some sort of “ocean rat.” It was washed up along the beach along with tons of jellyfish. I took photos only to realize that later on that I’ve seen this thing before on a various website post. I wish I got a few better photos.”
It’s my honor and pleasure to announce that a Montauk Monster discovery was made this weekend by Linda Ingmanson on Silver Sands Beach in Milford, CT. Linda and her husband were walking on the beach when they found a mutated creature that bared resemblance to the Montauk Monster of recent years.
I received an Email from Linda Ingmanson on Sunday morning (10/3) explaining the details.
I had a brief phone conversation with Linda yesterday afternoon to verify her story and learn more about the details of her discovery. She noted that the creature was bloated, stocky, and looked nothing like anything she’s seen before. Linda said that the creature had an odd “sweet smell” which puzzled her as the Montauk Monster is notorious for smelling like “rotten garbage”. Linda and her husband did not attempt to remove the decaying carcass from the beach as they feared that it may be diseased.
I did not have a chance to make a trip to Silver Sands Beach to see the beast with my own eyes. I encourage all interested parties in Milford, CT to search for the rotting and bloated carcass and inform authorities.
We may still have an opportunity to bring the remains to a laboratory for testing before the mutated beast is washed back to sea. This may be our only chance to determine what the creature really is; drawing a possible link to the other carcasses that have been discovered with respect to origins from Plum Island.
The search for the Montauk Monster is officially on!

Just in time for 4th of July weekend, the Montauk Monster has made its return to the shores of Long Island washing up at Gurney’s Inn. (Oceanside resort located in Montauk, NY) The initial discovery was made by PJ Monte and friends while walking on beach property owned by Gurney’s Inn. (July 2nd 2009 at 6:15 PM) The dead and bloated carcass washed up during an elegant oceanfront wedding. With gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean it’s no surprise that the Montauk Monster decided to crash the party!
As for the wedding party, the carcass went undetected as PJ Monte and friends moved it to a different location and the photography session began shortly after. Now you are probably wondering how once again I made it to the eye of the storm to cover the breaking news. Allow me to give you the play-by-play.
While on Facebook this evening, I saw an update on PJ Monte’s wall indicating that he found The Montauk Monster as he uploaded photographs to his Flickr account. Yours truly, (Nicky Papers!) is connected to PJ through mutual friends. (God bless social networking!) Within 10 minutes of PJ’s wall posting I was able to get in touch with him by phone and explained that I was interested in covering the story. PJ graciously accepted my wishes and invited me to come out Gurney’s to check it out for myself.
With excitement, I rallied out to Montauk to once again get an up-close-and-personal encounter with the Montauk Monster. Upon arrival at Gurney’s Inn, PJ introduced me to his friends and his father Paul Monte. (General Manager, Gurney’s Inn) Paul Monte led the way as I was taken to a remote part of the property to witness the beast again with my own eyes.
The monster was removed from an ice-filled enclosure and laid out for all to view. The stench this time was so horrific it triggered my gag reflex and I was forced to take a step back. PJ and the crew lifted their shirts over their noses for relief from the rotting stench.
Sure enough, we were all looking at a very similar creature that has now washed up for the fourth documented time by photograph. For those who’ve doubted my discoveries, (Geraldo Rivera, Doug Kennedy) please note that I was with company who have openly revealed themselves and are willing to discuss this incident further.
After the viewing session we loaded the carcass back into the ice-filled enclosure for safe keeping. PJ Monte had to make an early exit as he was on his way to a party that evening in the Hamptons. My discussions with Paul Monte continued with his assistant Kon in an office located on the premises. Paul Monte agreed to run the pictures taken earlier that evening by his son PJ Monte as a Montauk-Monster.com exclusive.
What’s most disturbing about this discovery is that PJ and Paul’s last name is Monte sharing the well-known nickname for the Montauk Monster, “Monty”. Is this a coincidence or possibly the coming of the apocalypse? In a private conversation with PJ Monte, I mentioned that I had a premonition that our paths would be crossing by the way of the Montauk Monster. Being that this was the first time we had met, I think he was slightly freaked out by that remark. Nonetheless, I had to get that off my chest.
Additionally, the couple who contacted me in May (Monster found in Southhold, NY) made claims that while the dead carcass was in their backyard, (in an ice-filled cooler) the wife had terrible nightmares. They still wish to remain anonymous as the husband disposed of the carcass on a boat ride to Block Island to put his wife at ease. In fear of public humiliation, they wish to keep their identity unknown.
I’m still convinced these creatures are washing up from Plum Island. What do you think?
