ATLANTA (AP)

Two Georgia men say a hairy corpse they claim to have stumbled upon in the state's northern woods is Bigfoot.

The body is crammed in a freezer. Matt Whitton and Rick Dyer maintain that DNA evidence will prove once and for all that the frozen creature is Bigfoot. They plan to present DNA test results and photographs during a news conference today in California.

Skeptics say it's just another Bigfoot hoax.

One Bigfoot researcher says a picture of the corpse looks like a "costume.'' He says the DNA test won't likely prove anything.

A U.S. Fish and Wildlife Reserve spokesman says officers also aren't taking the claim seriously and won't investigate Bigfoot because it's not a federal priority.

Whitton and Dyer now say they have expanded their search to look for leprechauns and the Loch Ness monster.

JONESBORO, Ga. (AP)

A Clayton County police officer is among three people claiming the dead body of a Bigfoot has been found in Georgia.

Officer Matt Whitton plans a news conference Friday with California resident Tom Biscardi and former corrections officer Rick Dyer to show photographs and the results of DNA testing. They say the evidence will prove the existence of the legendary man-ape found in north Georgia.

The news conference is scheduled for noon West Coast time at the Cabana Hotel in Palo Alto, Calif.

Biscardi has been a full time, professional Bigfoot hunter for at least three years.

Whitton is on medical leave from the Clayton Police Department, where he has been employed for six years. He tells the Clayton News Daily that people who call the creature a hoax are just jealous.

    Idiot, leave it to you to turn and twist someone's words around. Did you not read when I stated...white folks just want to "woo hoo"ing(while waving your hands erratically) about it. Finding bigfoot, or stealing a bear or swimming with sharks, or jumping off a bridge, or getting killed while skydiving, has no benifit to mankind. How is that benefiting mankind. So you call it research for a better understanding? You people are just putting your self in unnessary danger. So when your behind gets squashed or bitten don't expect any sympathy! Hey idiot...I disarm and infuriate with the mirror effect!

    KiddinMe:Seems to me that if "whitefolks" didnt go out exploring some other people would still be living in mud and poograss covered huts drinking water with germs so big you could have one for a pet eating grubs and each other when times get tough and a life expectancy of about 30 years old, if you were super lucky. Exploring and roaming and looking for better things, chasing dreams of a greater life, youre welcome.

    Why do white folks always tend to go looking for stuff, and when they get mauled by a bear, chomped down on by a tiger or have a sting ray stab them in the heart they expect sympathy. LEAVE NATURE ALONE folks!! Stop looking for some kinda of adventure to go "woo hoo" about! "Bigfoot" should of eat him up. Idiots.

    I think these guys must have stopped by the evidence locker before they went hunting to sample some of the illegal substances seized earlier that day. And how dumb are they- leprechauns only live in Ireland! LOL

    i don't know if any of you saw that video of the chupacabra but there's no way it could have been a dog. the front legs were shorter than the back, it was completely hairless, the skin was a gray color, and the snout on that thing was unlike anything i've ever seen before, almost hog-like or something!! crazy i tell ya!!
