Enoch, the book, and Autumn Williams a Sham?

As posted to the BFRO.net discussion site by "Navigator." - http://s2.excoboard.com/BFRO/124725/2272791

"The fellow who told Autumn Williams (by phone) the stories that she eventually published in a book titled "Enoch," is actually a yarn-spinning homeless person in central Florida who our investigators had encountered in 2006 in Polk County, FL.

Among other things, Mike claimed to have been a helicopter pilot in Vietnam. He had some very lucid, detailed stories about his experiences as a chopper pilot in Vietnam, but when asked about some basic things that any helicopter would know about (such as thermal up-drafts) Mike had no idea what our guys were talking about. He had apparently watched a bunch of Vietnam movies and was accustomed to telling his tales to people who weren't smart enough to figure out that he was lying .... eh hem ...

When our guys visited him at his hobo camp near the highway in Polk County in 2006, they looked around in the area and they actually saw him remove some food from a bait station they had set up, and then he claimed the bigfoot had come by and taken the food.

Homeless Mike is lying bum with a penchant for hustling women who he can sponge off. He's also got an arrest record in more than one state and is almost certainly a parole violator as well."

Update:

Autumn Williams responds (Apr 8, 2011): Whoever this man was who was interviewed by BFRO investigators in 2006, it was not the same man.

Oregon Sasquatch Symposium Revelation (6/22/2010)

But the rock star was Autumn Williams, the keynote speaker, who was feted with whoops and cheers. “We are a family,” the slender blond woman said as she started her story, “drawn together by our interests.”

Williams told the story of a 50-year-old bulldozer driver in Florida, who took up residence in a swamp to escape the tragedies in his life.

There, Williams said, he took up a Jane Goodall-style life with a tribe of bigfoot. She referred to him only as “Mike” and said that she was the only human in the world to which he would confide.

Mike is a profane and funny witness, given to playfully calling his friends, the bigfoot — bigfeet? — “snapperheads.”

Williams said Mike would not supply her with a picture because he is wary of the demand for such “evidence,” but he allowed an artist to simulate an image that he verified was close to accurate, she said.

“Oh,” a woman in the audience gasped, when Williams flashed a close-up of the hairy face with luminous eyes, wrinkled nose and broad mouth on the lecture hall screen.

“Wow,” other audience members said.

Williams took questions after her speech, and none were critical, Meldrum noticed. “There were no probing questions, none of that,” he said, later adding: “It reflected the attitude of the audience. They were won over to her story.”

Many bigfoot enthusiasts are fervent — and some range into the realm of anti-science, Meldrum said. At an earlier conference, he said, “I thought I was in a Bible belt meeting in the South.”

“Mike,” the habituator in Florida, must remain secret so his identity doesn’t bring attention and jeopardize the safety of bigfoot — which he calls Enoch, Williams said.

“The big guy comes first,” she said Mike said.

Those who follow bigfoot’s trail tend to assume that the creature they seek is, generally speaking, friendly and intelligent.

Some have been influenced by the movie Avatar, Meldrum said, whether they recognize it or not. Williams, for instance, depicts bigfoot as a kind of noble savage who shuns the use of technology and lives communally.

She juxtaposes bigfoot with man’s image-and-possession obsessed society.

“That’s the politically correct posture for a lot of people,” Meldrum said. “The Sasquatch has chosen a path that’s more pristine and pure.”

Is this a Bigfoot turf war? BFRO vs OregonBigfoot.com? A battle between the hearts and minds of the BF community?

Sakari – you’re an Oregonian. What’s your take on this? Have you had any dealings with Autumn Williams?

Is Enoch reminiscent of Communion?

Yep, she's definitely not telling the truth. I happen to know her quite well, and it's all a sham.

Would you care to elaborate?

First of all, I don't think coming forth with a photo would cause the creature harm. I just finished the book. It was believable until towards the end when he was actually taking a nap with the creature. Second, I don't understand why the creature wouldn't go near the cameras but would allow Mike to have binoculars close by. Doesn't make sense. Any thoughts on this? Thanks

I thought this was about the Book of Enoch. 

Moving along.

I've never heard of this. I was thinking of the Book of Enoch,  which was known to even the early church fathers.
