Substantiation of this Report may be provided by my own field work at Illinois Beach State Park, which began in the summer of 2015[1] and also by the eyewitness testimony of Smith Jerrod, who accompanied me and who observed the same phenomena; Mr Jerrod also made numerous comments and observations relevant to my own, which not only assisted but clarified my investigations.  Further substantiation may be provided by published accounts on the BFRO website,[2] and others;[3] however, I am unaware of other persons conducting research and/or field investigations in this area of Illinois.

The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events described in this Report are as follows:

  1. The straight, even line of deeply impressed, albeit badly deteriorated, prints on the bluff slope;
  2. Ditto, presenting a noticeable lack of turnout or straddle;
  3. The eerie quiet and stillness, experienced throughout;
  4. The glimpse of movement in the trees, far across the marsh;
  5. The curious phenomena of the blurred photographs in my camera’s viewfinder;
  6. The gracefully arched branches flanking the large ‘X’ formation;
  7. The second glimpse of movement in the trees, far to the northwest;
  8. The sudden, loud noise of a rattling chain, behind us along the vehicle-access road.

These behaviours, and the history of my own experience(s),[4] [5] may be considered sufficient to suggest the presence of EC[6] at Illinois Beach State Park, in the late winter of 2015.

A number of subjective events also occurred.  While these cannot be considered conclusive evidence, neither should they be discounted.  Although it is reasonable to review the impact of non-objective stimuli in this Report, such effects, while personally quite vivid and at times overwhelming, are nonetheless nearly impossible to substantiate with any measure of certainty.
