Investigation by: Troy Chaffee
I am 41 years old and employed for the past 10 years by the King County Sheriff's Office, Seattle, WA. I am a Bomb Technician, Bomb Dog Handler, Search and Rescue Duty Officer, and professional tracker. Prior to the KCSO I was a Criminal Investigator for the US Army for 13 years. I am certified as a Professional Tracker through a national organization which focuses on man-tracking (read bi-pedal movement). I have been researching Bigfoot at some level or another since I had my first encounter with one in Gold Beach, OR at age 8. I had another encounter at Fort Lewis, WA in 1989 and have been an avid researcher since then. I currently in the process of moving to Orting, WA, very near where Sali and Autumn lived during the era of "Valley..." and have begun to see interesting activity in the same area.
