The Latest From Rita.

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Rita, a long time reader and active contributer in comments section of many posts, sheds new light on the whereabouts of the Montauk Monster. In a response to Hippy; (see below) Rita claims her family has the decomposed remains of the Montauk Monster. Please take the time to read Rita’s previous comments as they seem to provide factual information.

Rita, thank you for your support on this site. If you wish to make further statements I will be happy to post them for our readers.

“To Hippy:

Been a little busy but thanks for asking where I have been. To answer your questions no I am not seeking forgivness from my parents souls as most would only do that if you did somthing wrong or lied, in which I did neither. My family owes me nothing because we know the truth and they still have the remains. Definately NOT pitching a movie, have more important things to do than pitch a low budget, straight to DVD movie.

There are pictures but can not be posted under a confidentiality agreement from the lawyers representing the family and the other parties involved in this whole thing. Sometimes people should just have a little confidence in others and in the end the truth comes out.”

Rita: We have confidence in you, but what is the truth?

The Smoke Settles – Where’s Beastie?

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

It’s been a few weeks since my last post on Montauk-Monster.com. Things in my life have been hectic, (family, work, etc.) so I apologize in advance for not being more diligent with the postings as of recently.

A series of facts and articles have appeared in numerous publications going over the theories which have been proposed on my website. Due to the amount of e-mails I’ve received from our readers, I’ll try and bring all up to date with a short list of recent events.

  1. The Montauk Monster is found and becomes the 2008 story of the summer.
  2. New sets of pictures are discovered (blue colored beast).
  3. “Tonya” comes forward and proposes the Splinterheads theory.
  4. Numerous publications support the Splinterheads theory.
  5. Sersenpark.com (Splinterheads) first embraced the story; then later stated the hoax was created by 16-year-old entrepreneur.
  6. Copycat scams pop up. (Bigfoot, Rocky Point Monster etc.)
  7. There is no conclusion to the story.

The Montauk Monster is still a mystery. If it’s not a movie prop, then what is it and where did it go? Some say it was stolen from the backyard it was originally taken to. Others insist that it was a genetic mishap as the result of an experiment gone wrong on Plum Island. At this point, I don’t know what to believe. Too many people were on the beach the day “beastie” was discovered for us to forget. Sure, it’s fun keeping this a mystery, but at the same time I think the truth needs to come out now. It’s been long enough.

Update!: Splinterheads crew launches official website.

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

“Tonya” has just informed me that the Splinterheads crew have launched their official website. They claim that they have the Montauk Monster. I tried contacting Darren Goldberg yesterday, but he was not available for comment.

Splinterheads Official Website: www.splinterheadsmovie.com.

Also, www.sersenpark.com (Official Splintersheads Picture Blog) thanks Darren’s sister Rachel Goldberg.

Without a doubt this could be the prank of the century.Kudos to Splinterheads!

So where is the Montauk Monster now?

BREAKING NEWS: Montauk Monster Truths Revealed (Splinterheads!)

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

This article is a www.montauk-monster.com exclusive.

A reliable source named “Tonya” has come forward with new truths about the Montauk Monster and Rachel Goldberg. After viewing the video posted below (Plum TV) it’s clear that the three girls (Jenna Hewitt, Rachel Goldberg, and Courtney Fruin) are bluffing. Additionally, why do the “original” Montauk Monster pictures look drastically different from the higher quality ones that were submitted by Christina Pampalone? It appears the first bidder (Jenna Hewitt + crew) came to the media first and were awarded the release of the pictures. What I’m proposing is that we are looking at pictures of two different “creatures”.

Let’s talk about the viral marketing myth. It’s been claimed that this was a marketing stunt for both Cloverfield 2, (could make sense) and the Cartoon Network show “Cryptids are Real”.

Newsday has done a great job covering the Montauk Monster, but did everyone forget about the article regarding “Splinterheads” (new movie about carnival subculture) that’s being filmed in Patchogue?

Newsday: Splinterheads Article

In the article linked above, the producer Darren Goldberg is quoted saying how he “grew up in Manhattan and spent summers in Amagansett.” (Amagansett is the next town over from Montauk! Google Map.) “Tonya” made further claims that Darren Goldberg may be related to Rachel Goldberg.

Please see pictures below:

Rachel Goldberg on Plum TV

“Tonya” stated that the original pictures of the Montauk Monster were a stage prop from the Splinterheads movie set. “Tonya” also mentioned that there will be a scene in the movie where the Montauk Monster will be revealed.

Could this be a possibility? Could this be a marketing scheme? Absolutely! The creature was mysteriously brought to somebody’s backyard and it has never been seen again. In Newsday’s “Splinterheads” article, Michelle Isabelle-Stark says: “For Suffolk County’s economic development office, the arrival of the cameras and crews is welcome news.” Not only is it great for the pride of community, they’re using a slew of local vendors for food, hotels, rental cars and lumber.” The Montauk Monster adds fuel to that fire and will support economic growth in Eastern Suffolk County, despite rising gas prices.

Also mentioned in the “Splinterheads” Newsday article, they are seeking additional capital for the film. It looks like they got the additional funding as Rob Schnieder (big budget baby!) has just been added to the cast. It didn’t hit IMDB.com yet, but has appeared on Jason Rogel’s (cast member) MySpace.com page.

“Tonya” also said there may be more pictures (new angles) to be released on www.sersenpark.com. (The Official Splinterheads Blog)

“Tonya” may have cracked the case on the first set of pictures, but what about the others that were released by Christina Pampalone? What I saw a few weeks ago most resembled the original pictures posted by Jenna Hewitt. I was the victim of a copy-cat scam or a viral marketing maneuver. It’s obvious now that Christina Pampalone’s pictures are the real deal. So where is the Montauk Monster now? (the one with the blue-ish tint) I think the government is holding the truth because this was the result of the horrific genetic experiment at Plum Island. What do you think?

If anyone has any additional information or is an eye-witness of the Montauk Monster, now is the time come to come forward. Please e-mail: info@montauk-monster.com

Plum TV Interview: Rachel Goldberg, Courtney Fruin, and Jenna Hewitt.

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

I’ve analyzed this video dozens of times and certain things do not add up. First, why does the first set of “monster pictures” that Jenna Hewitt took, look so much different from the second set that was recently posted by Christina Pampalone? It’s been a couple of days now, so where are the whereabouts of the Montauk Monster? Is the government trying to cover up the truth? Was this in fact the product of a genetic mishap from Plum Island?

Please study the video below carefully and read the girls body language. Also note; all three girls are wearing sunglasses during this interview. (the eyes tell the truth.) This video could be our best indicator to unlock the mystery of Jenna Hewitt’s Montauk Monster pictures.

Movie Breakdown:

0.00-4:05: Rachel Goldberg is sitting closest to gentleman interviewing them. Also she is the first one to speak up. It appears to me that Rachel has taken a lead position on this interview. Perhaps she is the key to the answers, not Jenna Hewitt after all.

0.47-1:01: Courtney Fruin gives it up by laughing! This could be the best indicator that this may be a hoax. Courtney can’t keep a straight face or hold herself back from giggling when asked to describe what she saw. She breaks eye contact and smirks. Courtney, I wouldn’t enjoy swimming next to the Montauk Monster either.

1:33-2:32: Jenna Hewitt nervously sips her beverage multiple times. It becomes her crutch during the interview.

2:32-4:05 : Once again, Rachel Goldberg takes the lead on the interview straight to the end, not Jenna Hewitt.

And there you have it, the proof is in the pudding! There is something shady going on here. It still doesn’t explain what actually did wash ashore. That is still a mystery. If anyone has anymore information about the girls in the film; especially Rachel Goldberg, please e-mail info@montauk-monster.com.

Christina Pampalone: Releases New Pictures.

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

Christina Pampalone of East Northport has released new pictures of the Montauk Monster. She was kind enough to release two new pictures for Montauk-Monster.com. Finally, new pictures have emerged. This is the tip of the iceberg and a Montauk-Monster.com exclusive.

This picture below is new, has not been seen before, and will hit the media tomorrow.

Jenna Hewitt: New Picture Released!

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

A few days after the first picture was released to the media, Jenna Hewitt came forward with another image of the Montauk Monster. For all those people who were skeptical about the first picture, the 2nd confirms that Montauk Monster is real. When I viewed the monster myself, I saw it at this angle.

Some people think that the first picture was altered on Photoshop. What about this picture? It’s the exact same specimen at a different angle. It was taken at the same time of day and the markings in the sand are the same.

I believe that Jenna Hewitt has more pictures of the Montauk Monster. She probably has a memory card full of them! I’m sure more will surface in time as she’s waiting for the right amount of money for the release of the next.

The Montauk Monster: Up Close and Personal.

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

The first time I read about the “Montauk-Monster” in Newsday I was not happy with the quality of the picture. It was in black and white and the size of the image was distorted. I had to do my own due diligence and hop online and find a better quality image.

Jenna Hewitt, 26 came forward with this picture. I will post movie clips of exclusive interviews with her shortly. When I made it down to the beach that afternoon I did not see her or any of the friends she was with. Though I only spent a short time examining the creature, I did not see Jenna Hewitt at the scene that afternoon or her taking pictures of the monster. It might have been done before or after I made to the beach.

If only I got my hands on the new Apple iPhone 3G a few weeks earlier! Unfortunately, my BlackBerry doesn’t have a camera phone. There were weird pimples on its back and an odd piece of fabric around its hoof / claw. I remember this very distinctly. This picture is the real deal.

Below is an accurate representation of the Montauk Monster.It was approximately 2.5-3 feet long. To compare it to another animal it’s safe to say it was about the size a small dog. It did not resemble a dog or pitbull because the eyes and snout (or beak nose in this instance) did not look like anything from the canine family.

This is not a dead dog or raccoon. What do you think?

The Montauk Monster: Listed On Wikipedia.

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

The Montauk Monster has been loaded as a current event on Wikipedia. The information below may be incomplete, or may change as the event progresses.

The Montauk Monster is a creature with a “dinosaur beak” which allegedly washed ashore dead in Ditch Plains, near Montauk, New York in late July 2008.

Speculation in published reports included theories that the Montauk Monster may be a turtle without its shell—even though the shell of a turtle cannot be removed without damaging the turtle—a dog, a raccoon, or perhaps a science experiment from the nearby government animal testing facility, the Plum Island Animal Disease Center. The “monster” may also be a decomposed pig carcass. The creature’s appearance may have been altered through immersion in water for an extended period before coming to rest on the shore, making it difficult to identify.

Because the body is not available for study, and is only shown in photos taken by the locals who discovered it, this may be a photo-shopped image or part of a viral marketing campaign. A new picture of the creature has also been shown on the news and Internet. Animal Expert Jeff Corwin has appeared on Fox News and claimed that upon close inspection of the photograph, he feels sure the “monster” is merely a raccoon or dog that has decomposed slightly.

William Wise, director of Stony Brook University’s Living Marine Resources Institute, interpreted the photo along with a colleague, and suggested it was a hoax after discounting the following possibilities:

• Raccoon. (“The legs appear to be too long in proportion to the body.”)
• Sea turtle. (“Sea turtles do not have teeth.”)
• Rodent. (“Rodents have two huge, curved incisor teeth.”)
• Dog or other canine.(“Prominent eye ridge and the feet” don’t match.)
• Sheep. (Sheep don’t have sharp teeth).

The father of the woman who took the photo that spawned the speculation told a reporter that reports that his daughter was holding out to the highest bidder to make some cash were “nonsense.” An unidentified woman told the same reporter that the animal was only the size of a cat, and as of August 2008 was decomposed to a skeleton, but would not identify its location for inspection.

On August 1, Gawker published pictures and x-rays of a Rakali (or Water Rat, Hydromys chrysogaster) showing several convincing similarities with the Montauk Monster: the “beak”, tail, feet, size, and general appearance similar. The Rakali originates from Australia.

Posed Theories

Below is a list of proposed real-world animals that would seem to match with what the “monster” may have been before decomposing due to sea water. Some animals would seem to make more sense than others, such as a pig carcass over a turtle, while the probability of a fraud is always present. All reasonable possibilities have been listed.

• Cougar/Mountain Lion
• Wild Pig
• Dog/Wolf
• Water Rat
• Raccoon
• Sea Turtle
• Viral marketing fraud
