    Lexington Clipper-Herald: Teen's hairy run-in with 7-footer probed as Bigfoot encounter

    Before July, Saunders County Sheriff Kevin Stukenholtz had never fielded a call about Bigfoot over a lifetime in law enforcement.

    Now he has a big mystery on his hands.

    Stukenholtz, along with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, investigated a reported sighting of an unidentified "hairy" creature in late July on a country road that parallels the Platte River. A hair sample found at the site was still being analyzed.

    A 15-year-old reported seeing the creature, which he said stood about 7 feet tall on two legs as it ran in front of the vehicle the youth was driving about 5:30 a.m. The creature then disappeared into the trees along the river.

    Stukenholtz, who became county sheriff six years ago after a long career with the Nebraska State Patrol, said he has no reason to believe the report was a hoax. His office is awaiting a report about hair gathered from the scene, between Morse Bluff and Linwood, about 60 miles west of Omaha.
