Sasquatch and Paranormal Activity

Over time and after hundreds of alleged encounters a question arises, “Is there more to Sasquatch than just flesh and bone?” For centuries Sasquatch, Bigfoot and Paranormal Researchers have been asking themselves that very question. Whenever an alleged Sasquatch encounter takes place, and it just vanishes without a trace, researchers wonder why, if it is real, how could it just vanish. Skeptics and non-believers use that very question to try to prove their point that Sasquatch is only a myth and does not exist. Another question that Sasquatch and paranormal investigators ask themselves when they find alleged Bigfoot tracks, “Why do the tracks go so far, just stop, and go nowhere?”

Stan Gordon, a Sasquatch and paranormal investigator, in an interview, “The Amazing Sasquatch UFO Connection,” on Before It’s News, stated, “Bigfoot phenomena was much more unusual and complicated than I could have ever imagined.” He also went on to say, “Many reports of UFOs, Bigfoot, and other phenomena could be explained as misidentifications of natural or man made objects, there were strange encounters being reported yearly that were not so easily dismissed.”

In an interview with Mike Paterson, a Sasquatch investigator from Canada, he talked about how in the winter he would find tracks, follow them only to see them stop and go no further and wonder how could that be possible.

In “Paranormal America: Ghost Encounters, UFO Sightings, Bigfoot Hunts, and Other Curiosities in Religion and Culture” author’s Christopher Bader, F. Carson Mencken, and Joseph O. Baker, focus on people who believe in Bigfoot and the paranormal and how it has shaped their lives. This book presents a different view of the Bigfoot, UFO phenomena.

On February 16 and 17, 2016, the subject of Bigfoot and its possible paranormal link will be taken to a new level when Rez Squatching Research, led by Barry Webster on the Omaha Indian Reservation in Macy Nebraska, will be conducting night investigations in pursuit of alleged Bigfoot, to explore the possibility. Stay tuned for future publications on the night investigations on this website.

PARANORMAL PHENOMENA – YES OR NO

Paranormal-encyclopedia.com states that the definition of paranormal as, “Events or abilities outside the range of normal experiences that remain unexplained by established science.”

The Society for Scientific Exploration, founded in 1982, is a professional organization made up of scientists and scholars who study unusual and unexplained phenomena. A scholar, Peter A. Sturrock, the former director of Stanford University’s Center for Space Science and Astrophysics wrote an article, “The Study of Paranormal Phenomena Can Be Scientific.” In the article, he said, “Carl Sagan was correct in asserting that ‘extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence,’ but that does not mean that anything less than extraordinary evidence may be ignored.”

A paranormal phenomena experience can happen anywhere, at any time.

Robert Roy Britt wrote an article on Live Science.com, titled “Higher Education Fuels Stronger Belief in Ghosts.” Britt states “Contrary to researchers’ expectations, a poll of 439 college students found seniors and grad students were more likely than freshmen to believe in haunted houses.” In an article by Live Science.com staff titled “Americans Belief in Paranormal Phenomena,” they created an infographic, “Do You Believe,” which takes a look at paranormal beliefs in America.

Paranormal Facts

On their website, the Arizona Paranormal Society list a number of paranormal facts they believe to be true. Facts the Society describes are:

  • Ghost: A phenomena that will happen when an apparition appears over and over in the same location. Some emotional energy charged by human aura replays the phenomena as if it were real.

  • Spirit: The actual nucleus or soul, which remains after a person’s physical body, has expired.

  • Can ghosts follow you: After you leave a haunted location ghosts and spirits will not follow.

  • Taunting spirits: Do not provoke the dead. The Society states, “It has been proven that our conscious attitude affects paranormal reality.”

  • Poltergeist: Poltergeist is a German word meaning noisy spirit and usually does not have anything to do with ghosts or spirits. It is believed to be caused by the subconscious mind and is known as psychokinetic activity.

  • Demons: Demons are rare and usually only come into your life if they are invited one way or another.

  • Doppelganger: Doppelganger is a German word for spirit double. It is the spirit of a person outside of their body and can mean death will come soon.

Corker Johnston was born on June 2, 1972 in Braham, Minnesota. He is a father, brother, uncle, artist, author, paranormal researcher, CEO and founder of R.C.P.S. Rush City Paranormal Society. He grew up in Rush City, Minnesota and attended the Jacobson Elementary and Rush City High School. While attending elementary school, he was awarded a special scholarship at the Art Institute of Minneapolis, where he eventually earned an Associate of Arts Degree in art. Over the years, as a hobby, he did portraits, auto detailing and murals. While attending high school, he enjoyed being in the choir. His over exuberance for fun never eluded him. In shop class, while cutting a car in half, his buddy accidentally started a fire and almost burned the classroom up. In a teenage altercation at the school parking lot, he was involved in a miniature demolition derby. Corker said, “Those were some of the crazy things I accomplished during my teenage years.”

Corker has 1 sister, Sheila, and 3 brothers, Mark, Todd and Clinton. He has 3 children, Cory Jr., Tatyanna and Cylan. Tatyanna has co-authored 2 books with Corker and Cylan is working on becoming a recording artist. When Corker’s nephew, Duddy, was asked what he thought of his uncle he replied, “I can’t ever recall a dull moment when uncle Corker is around.” Duddy suggested to ask his uncle about a certain doll they had given a Mohawk to and named her Mrs. T.. When Cocker was asked about it, he replied, “ Wow, that was a long time ago, but we got in big trouble for that one, the doll was my sisters.” Duddy also said, “His uncle always has a unique way of expressing himself, through his art or writing books.” When Corker’s brother Todd was asked about him, he got a smile on his face and said, “Corker was 7 years younger, and as kids he was always getting in the way.”

Corker’s interest in the paranormal started when he was a kid. In the house, he grew up in he saw a ghost and heard noises above his room. His x-wife whom he had been with for twenty-four years is gifted paranormal researcher. He said, “ She has crazy abilities and can dream about something before it happens.” Cocker started the R.C.P.S. Rush City Paranormal Society in 2008. He has thousands of followers and 8 active investigators. When asked if he is afraid of spirits or demons he replied, “I am more afraid of the living than the dead.” He has been on several talk radio shows. Below is a video of a talk he had with Scott Tepperman and Paul Bradford of GHI Ghost Hunters.

As a writer he has written 2 books about his paranormal investigations, Acheri Demon Haunting: The True Story of Paranormal Case 263 and Case 263: Aliens & Demons.

In the future, Cocker plans to do something with the paranormal and kids on TV. Write another book on a case in Canada. Adapt one of his books into a screenplay and produce a paranormal TV show, touring the United States interviewing clients on their paranormal experiences.
