A reporter for the Houston Chronicle has taken a closer look at Ketchum's Bigfoot DNA test results.
Ketchum made headlines when she released a research paper suggesting that alleged Bigfoot DNA that had been tested in a laboratory showed signs that it was indeed from an undiscovered species of bipedal ape. The findings generated much controversy, prompting science reporter Eric Berger to take a closer look and determine whether the evidence really did show what Ketchum was claiming.
Having received a phone call from Ketchum, Berger agreed not to write anything until a top geneticist had independently verified the results. Upon conducting the research however, the geneticist determined that the DNA was actually little more than that of an opossum mixed together with a few other species - hardly the ground-breaking Bigfoot evidence that Ketchum had been claiming it to be.
"Back in February I savaged the release of a research paper that claimed to prove the existence of Bigfoot by providing a DNA sequence from the species."
