The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Cryptids

Loch Ness Monster, Skunk Ape, Champtanystropheus, Chupacabra, Leeds Devil- all cryptids- animals or monsters that some believe to exist despite little evidence (or believable evidence) of their existence. Most people seriously doubt these animals are anything more than fictional creations in the minds of sanity challenged individuals. Which might be why so few people opt to use them as excuses when pleading their cases in a court of law.

Gene R. Morrill may just be an exception to that, as it seems that the convicted child molester- who recently plead guilty to 20 charges related to his attempts to solicit sex from an underage boy online- has decided that his best defense is to blame his actions on bigfoot. And not just on the existence of bigfoot either...


According to the Freelance Star, Defense Attorney Terrence Patton cited Morrill's mental health issues in seeking leniency from Judge J. Howe Brown.

Morrill reportedly told an investigator preparing his pre-sentence report that he had been sexually assaulted by the legendary Bigfoot. Patton said Morrill really believes the assaulted happened.

"I take him very seriously because I know Mr. Morill has issues," said Patton.

"I've had a few that have claimed abuse, but never by a mythical creature," said Stafford County Detective Darryl Wells, who has built the case against Morills one online chat at a time.

"He is a sexual predator that targets children," says Wells.

That's one for the books folks... "I'm a child molested because bigfoot molested me as a kid". Nothing like blaming a fictional creature for your own deviant behaviors.

Just sick...
