Many of us first heard the name Ed Hale through API when Sammy said he had a deal with Ed Hale for the release of the Michelle Obama tape. Below is the audio of a conversation between Sammy and Ed Hale:
Later, the deal with Ed Hale went sour due to Ed contacting Will Bower looking for an outlet to sell the tape:
From: Ed Hale
To: William Bower

Subject: Audio Tape
Hi Will: I have been in contact with the African Press International, who ran the Michelle Obama story. I have talked to them about releasing the audio tape they have of her. It would appear that this is going to happen. The format will be, I will bring the reporter on and let them tell us how they obtained the tape, and then I will run the audio tape, and bring the reporter back on to verify that it is the real thing. Once I have this done, I will place it on my web site, file for and get a copyright on it. Once I have this done, I will contact you with the link. What I would like for you, since you live in Washington DC, to do is contact CNN, Fox, NBC, CBS, ABC and MSNBC. Let them listen to the audio tape. I will then take bid on this tape. The starting bid will be 2 million dollars. Once you have received the high bid, we will break the money down this way, 45% to Bar H Farms Inc, parent copy of Plains Radio network, 45% to African Press International and 10% for yourself. If you can do this, please call me at 806-447-0010. Thanks Ed MORE INFO
It is my understanding that Ed Hale admitted to having sent that email to Will Bower. There is also an email that was supposedly sent to Phil Berg from Ed Hale but I do not have confirmation that Ed did indeed send it. You can see the contents of the supposed email HERE.
I hope you listened to at least part of the audio above…..there’s a reason I wanted you to hear it. This is where it all gets weird and interesting.
Back in 1996, Art Bell of Coast to Coast AM (late-night syndicated radio talk show) interviewed a man known only as “Bugs” who gave his account of shooting and burying two Bigfoot creatures back in the 1970s. Please view at least a portion of the video:
Does the voice sound familiar?
Yes, Ed Hale is the elusive Bugs that the Bigfoot “community” has been trying to identify for many years.
In this Art Bell interview with Bugs, bigfoot hunter and researcher Robert W. Morgan is included in the interview. There are 10 videos in this series and in the interview it is revealed that Bugs gave a map to Art Bell detailing where the two creatures were buried and some discussion that Bugs would allow Art Bell to turn the map over to Robert W. Morgan. As late as August 2007, Robert W. Morgan was trying to find “Bugs”:
A few years ago I appeared with you on the Art Bell Show. I was then a frequent guest on Art’s show. He had asked that I listen to your report of your encounter with the Bigfoot that had turned both violent and deadly. You and some friends purportedly had killed both a male and a female Bigfoot. I was asked to render an opinion both as a recognized authority on the subject but also as a fellow veteran familiar with the stress that can follow combat.
According to your story, you and some buddies had been out running a trap line or such and had come upon two of those entities whom I have come to call the Forest Giant People. One of your friends had opened fire for reasons of their own. As a Vietnam vet, you had learned the hard way what bullets can do to flesh. Having wounded one of the Bigfoot and having sympathy for its suffering, you followed the trail into a dense thicket. There you discovered a female tending to her mortally wounded male companion. When she attempted to defend him, you shot in self-defense. She died on the spot. REST OF LETTER
The website that broke this story of Bugs being Ed Hale THE REGULATOR apparently has a comment left on their website by Ed Hale:
I have to wonder what “Bugs” purpose was for revealing the shooting of the 2 bigfoot creatures when he virtually disappeared after the airing of the show. The map has never been revealed and his identity was never revealed until someone heard these videos and outed Bugs as being Ed Hale.
Bugs would have us believe he came forward because of deep remorse and guilt, but that remorse and guilt went only as far as talking on the radio. Was it remorse and guilt that led Bugs to confess on the radio?
From Michelle Obama tapes to the remains of bigfoot we are often asked to set aside our intellect and asked to just believe because someone sounds sincere……but we are well served when we are skeptical when dealing with unverifiable information. And isn’t it telling that so many of those who promote conspiracies of all kinds somehow intersect at some point in time?
Hat tip to the person who tipped me off to the Ed Hale/Bugs revelation…you know who you are. Thanks.
