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?

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.

“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

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
