I haven't seen a Bigfoot related post by Robert Lindsay in a long time. He went kind of quiet after the Rick Dyer hoax was proven to be just that, a hoax. Robert backed up Rick's story because of "anonymous sources" but these sources could never provide anything solid for us to see or read.
Robert has a new Bigfoot post up and it involves Stacy brown. Recently Brown came across an arm that was allegedly a "non-human primate" limb. It didn't take long for the results to come back to confirm that the limb was from an alligator.
According to Lindsay, he has inside information that accuses Stacy Brown of selling the original primate limb and presenting a purchased alligator limb as the one that was found.
Here is a snippet from Robert's blog:
"Within one hour after taking possession of the arm, Brown received a phone call from a very wealthy Bigfoot enthusiast in Ohio. He wanted to get involved. Brown said no. The man said how much would it take you to give up that arm. Brown quoted a very high figure – I can now reveal that that figure was $500,000. The man bit, unbelievably enough. The sale was made immediately, incredibly, the entire $500K was wired into Stacy’s account, and the arm was in the mail just like that.
Brown then started putting out fake stories about how they were going to test the arm even though they didn’t even have possession of it anymore. Very quickly, Brown called up a taxidermist friend and asked how much for an alligator arm. The man quoted $600. Brown said fine and bought the reptile arm. They then put out a fake story about the arm being tested and having been proven to have been an alligator, all to cover up the huge amount that Brown made on the sale of the arm. Brown is now, like the man in Ohio, a rich man. He is also a great big liar. On the latter count, in Bigfootery, he has found a happy home."
"My source for this information: An anonymous source very close to Beyond Highbrow has revealed this very exclusive information to us. I know him well and believe him implicitly. This man is extremely close to Stacy Brown"

I debated with Robert for a short time about the allegations against Brown and I told Robert that I had done a couple of overlays and the two different photos line up..
The first photo I used from a post at Bigfoot Evidence, dated September 1, 2014. I believe this was the first time the limb was shown to the public. This is the same photo Robert Lindsay says is the switch, showing the alligator limb.
The next one I used was from a video that was uploaded on September 3, 2014.
Now, it's possible that the video was recorded earlier but I don't have information that indicates this is true. Robert says the above photo is also the switched alligator arm. According to Lindsay, this renders my overlay invalid. I am going to post it anyway.
Identical match. I went on a search to find all posted photos of the limb. Robert said the original was posted at thesasquatchhunters.com but it was removed and replaced with a different photo.
Here are all of the other photos I could find.
Based on all of the photos available, I can only assume that Robert is talking about the photo with the limb on the ground as being the original "non-human" primate arm.
Let's compare that photo with a couple of the other "switched" photos.
If none of these photos is the original, someone must have it. If the original was posted online, someone grabbed it. Photos can be deleted from websites but they don't just disappear.
I have another issue with Robert's post. He says a rich guy from Ohio bought the arm within an hour and he paid $500,000 for it. Really? Some rich dude wires 500K to Stacy's account without having tested the limb? Lindsay would have us believe this but he rules out an official from FWC being wrong. The former assertion has more sex appeal than the latter, but I'll go with the FWC official being wrong, if that's okay.
In order to settle the matter, I contacted Stacy Brown. I was apprehensive because he and I have had some heated exchanges in a couple of Bigfoot groups. As it turns out, Stacy doesn't remember me...I guess I need to work on that.
Stacy and I had a private message session that lasted about fifteen minutes in total. I asked Stacy if Robert was making up this story but I forgot to include that perhaps Lindsay has another bad "anonymous source".
This is Stacy Brown's reply to that question.
"I don't think he made it up. It just didn't come from my camp or no one I know. Like I said this is probably the same people that are bashing me on the coalition page"
Robert went so far as to call Brown a liar without providing any proof that he is in fact lying.
Unless Robert Lindsay can provide some good evidence or proof that a switch took place and all of us were lied to, I'm inclined to take Stacy's comment at face value.
I don't have an ax to grind with Robert, I am only interested in the truth. The Bigfoot community is muddied enough already so we don't need false accusations flying around.
