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.
