Randy Needham and Judy Johnson (someone else's wife) parked just before midnight at Murphysboro boat ramp on Big Muddy River. They heard a loud cry from the woods next to the car, like an amplified eagle shriek. Needham then saw approaching the open window a light-colored, hairy, 8-foot creature covered with mud. He drove off and reported to police, who found some "peculiar" footprints in the oozing mud, heard a shriek themselves, followed splashing sounds, but found nothing.
