John has worked this report pretty extensively, I've been more on the sidelines. Both of us talked with Mark Nelson by phone, with John talking to him several times. Where Mark told me the event happened wasn't consistent with where he told John it happened. John wanted to see more of the video; one minute before and one minute after the "sighting" to see what the video showed; Mark refused to show it to John, and later ignored my verbal request. John offered to meet with Mark in person because John was near him last weekend; Mark refused. Mark complained to both of us that he was inundated with phone calls, and although both John and I counseled him to take his number off the website, Mark hasn't done so.
When I talked with Mark, he seemed very interested in the press and radio. When John talked with him, Mark asked the same questions and wondered how much the video was worth.
Mark, although he claims to be an amateur naturist and had been in this area before, was very unsure of the location of the video. I had to ask very specific questions to finally illicit a road name, side of the road, and terrain features. He was very unsure of the large mountain in the background, although it is the largest peak in the area.
Mark says he is 26, but he sounds very young. He stated that he lives with his girlfriend who, although present during the video, is now jealous of all the time Mark is spending with the video and phone calls.
None of this, of course, means that the video is a hoax. Neither John (who is a expert interrogator) nor I got him to confess or say anything that hinted at a hoax. Mostly, we have both felt he has been very uncooperative and certainly inconsistent with some basic facts of the report.
John is still trying to get more information and I'm sure will be here to update you soon.

BFRO thinks this video is real. They just added this to thier site and thier researchers are looking into this. It has been said that Mark wants a meeting with media and researchers to show the entire clip.

I say fake because the quality is crappy and it looks like it is 200 years old. How is it that nobody can film decent quality video in this country?
