(iWIDK By Allie Beauregard) – When you mix human genes and unidentifiable forensics, you get a hybrid that proves an urban legend.
Though she has yet to reveal where the evidence came from, Texan veterinary researcher Melba S. Ketchum announced Saturday that she has the DNA sample of female humans combined with the “unknown hominin species” that made Bigfoot.
Ketchum’s findings are currently under peer review as other scientific journals analyze the data she provided showing mitochondrial DNA from a human mother and unidentifiable strands from the offspring’s father.
As the fanatic and mystery over Bigfoot ceases to fade, the uncertainty is still ever-present, especially in the science community.
“No data, no discovery,” University of Wisconsin anthropologist John Hawks blogged, according to the LA Times.
The public, however, is a bit more supportive, offering hair samples thought to belong to the giant ape-human, which Ketchum and her team will analyze.
As the case progresses, Kethcum hopes to create a documentary of the process and collect her work in a published book.
