Lyndsey Raymond - Investigator

Lyndsey is a serving Police Officer with 18 years of experience in various investigative capacities and is a trained Forensic Crimes Scenes Officer and Fingerprint Examination Expert. Lyndsey's life-long curiosity in the phenomenon of Sasquatch peaked when she became introduced to the vast and mountainous wilderness throughout the Province of Alberta. Lyndsey's belief is that Sasquatch is a highly intelligent hominid so intensely adapted to its surroundings that it possesses the ability to manipulate the environment to its advantage and continues to baffle the scientific world. Lyndsey is an avid camper and enjoys spending her free time hiking in the mountains through-out the warmer months. Her goal within the Sasquatch community is to develop an in-depth understanding of these magnificent creatures and their habitats.

Karen is a Certified Personal Trainer, mother and wife. Through extensive research on the origin of Bigfoot, she believes Bigfoot is a hominid, much closer to humans than apes. Studying the theories presented by Loren Coleman and Archeologist, Kathy Strain, she believes Native Americans have been living with these creatures for centuries, long before white man appeared on native soil. She believes they have a language, culture, and despite their elusive behavior, they are social. Being part Indian herself, she feels she’s able to relate in some sense with Native Americans. Also fluent in Spanish, Karen is able to conduct interviews with Spanish-speaking witnesses. Karen is eager to prove their existence and she knows one day soon science will confirm her beliefs.
