The Associated Press reports that a man dressed in a military-style “ghillie” suit, which are camouflaged outfits designed to resemble heavy foliage and worn by special operation soldiers, died on a Montana highway after being hit by two cars.
Apparently attempting to provoke reports of a Bigfoot sighting in northwest Montana, Randy Lee Tenley, 44, was standing on the right-hand lane of U.S. Highway 93 south of Kalispell on Sunday night. He was hit by the first car, according to the Montana Highway Patrol, and was then run over by a second car as he lay in the roadway.
The Daily Inter Lake reported on Monday that Tenley’s motives were ascertained during interviews with friends.
“He was trying to make people think he was Sasquatch so people would call in a Sasquatch sighting,” Trooper Jim Schneider told the Daily Inter Lake on Monday. “You can’t make it up. I haven’t seen or heard of anything like this before. Obviously, his suit made it difficult for people to see him.”
