Man killed while trying to create Bigfoot sighting
KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - August 27, 2012 (WPVI) -- A man who was apparently trying to provoke reports of a Bigfoot sighting in northwestern Montana was struck by two cars and killed.
The Montana Highway Patrol says the man was wearing a military style "Ghillie suit" and was standing in the right-hand lane of U.S. Highway 93 south of Kalispell when he was hit by the first car Sunday night. A second car hit him as he lay in the roadway.
Flathead County officials identified the man as 44-year-old Randy Lee Tenley of Kalispell.
Trooper Jim Schneider tells the Daily Inter Lake that Tenley's motives were ascertained during interviews with friends.
The patrol says Tenley was struck by vehicles driven by two girls, ages 15 and 17, who were unable to stop in time.
