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 large ‘X’ branch configuration observed on the bluff;
  2. The possible branch shelter assembly observed nearby;
  3. The arrangement of remnant building materials in the same location;
  4. The manipulation of the White Oak (Quercus alba), ditto;
  5. The possible observation of a large, dark figure lurking in the shadows.

These behaviours, and the history of my own experience(s),[4] [5] [6] [7]may be considered sufficient to suggest the presence of EC[8] at Illinois Beach State Park, in the autumn of 2016.

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.
