Dave Paulides


Dave Paulides brings a 20-year law enforcement career and unique investigative skills to Bigfoot research.  The California resident pioneered compelling investigative techniques.  He canvassed neighborhoods of sightings to interview witnesses and find corroborating information.  He also used respected forensic artist Harvey Pratt with witnesses.  Resulting pictures revealed a creature more human looking than ape.

Dave’s Bigfoot work has done much to shift theories toward ideas that Sasquatch is an intelligent hominid more like humans.  His work has a strong connection to the Western Native American communities.  Particularly to the tribe geographically located near the Patterson/Gimlin footage site.

Dave’s interest has shifted to investigating mysterious missing persons cases in National Forests but his two Bigfoot books are essential reading.
