Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 289 The Bishopville Lizard Man with Lyle Blackburn

May 20, 03:00 AM

In 1988, the small town of Bishopville was about find itself smack bang in the middle of a monster flap that attracted world wide attention. When locals began reporting some strange reports of damaged vehicles, the authorities appeal for help took a decidely strange turn.

What started as some unusual vandalism turned in to a collection of reports of encounters with some chilling and disturbing encounters with a weird bipedal creature lurking near Scape Ore Swamp.

Joining me to return to one of his earliest cases is author, researcher and rock god Lyle Blackburn. Lyle covers the witnesses and encounters he covered in his book along with some of the odder aspects to an already odd case.
