Utah Bigfoot ‘Sasquatch P. Rees’ Loses Head
Adding to the unending plight of U.S. Bigfoot statues, news out of Benson, Utah tells the sordid tale of a makeshift Sasquatch that recently wound up without a head.
The late Sasquatch P. Rees was made out of a standard mannequin and a Bigfoot costume, put together by Heidi and Jay Rees. The project, they said, was just for fun — at the time of the incident, the replica cryptid was decked out in sunglasses and swim trunks, and held a fake surf board in its hand. But obviously, someone wasn’t laughing.
Someone, says Rees, used a power tool — possibly a reciprocating saw — to perform a slight modification to their original design.

Adding to the mystery: The head was only ever duct-taped on, and could have easily been removed by hand. But whoever did the deed clearly decided to go all the way.
All. The. Way.
According to local news outlet Herald Journal, in response to the unusual crime, members of the community decided to raise funds to repair Sasquatch P. You can check out their GoFundMe over here, titled “Someone murdered Squatch! Help bring him back!”
