    So it really was a rubber suit.

    The excitement over a supposed Bigfoot body that built all last week, culminating Friday in a circus-like press conference in Palo Alto, Calif., collapsed like a wet soufflé over the weekend as an independent investigator found out it was all fake.

    SearchingforBigfoot.com owner Tom Biscardi paid an "undisclosed sum" to Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer, the two Georgia men who say they found the body, for their frozen corpse and the privilege of trotting them out in front of TV cameras.

    At the same time, Biscardi sent self-described "Sasquatch detective" Steve Kulls back to Georgia to check out the body.

    Kulls, it's safe to say, was severely disappointed.

    The upshot? The real Bigfoot, once found, is now missing. So are Whitton, Dyer and Biscardi's money.

    Bigfoot Body Chupacabra-cam? In a long statement on SearchingforBigfoot.com, Kulls reveals what he found early Sunday morning Eastern time as the body thawed out.

    "I extracted some [hair] from the alleged corpse and examined it and had some concerns," Kulls writes. "We burned said sample and said hair sample melted into a ball uncharacteristic of hair."

    Kulls called Biscardi in California, who told him to heat the body to speed up thawing.

    "Within one hour we were able to see the partially exposed head," Kulls continues. "I was able to feel that it seemed mostly firm, but unusually hollow in one small section. This was yet another ominous sign."

    Then came the clincher.

    "Within the next hour of thaw, a break appeared up near the feet area. ... I observed the foot which looked unnatural, reached in and confirmed it was a rubber foot."

    That jibes with what Jerry Parrino, owner of Internet Halloween-costume retailer TheHorrorDome.com, told FOXNews.com last week.

    "It definitely looks like our [Sasquatch] costume," Parrino said after viewing photos of the body.

    The Biscardi team immediately went into crisis mode. Biscardi called Whitton and Dyer at their California hotel. They admitted it was a hoax and agreed to sign a promissory note at a meeting set for 8 a.m. Pacific time at the hotel.

    But when Biscardi got there, he "found that they had left."

    "At this time action is being instigated against the perpetrators of this fraud," Kulls writes on Biscardi's Web site. "On behalf of myself I can say with certainty Matthew Whitton and Ricky Dyer [are] not the best Bigfoot trackers in the world!"

    I was gratified to hear that the Sheriff's Department where the deputy worked has already started the paperwork to fire him... they said that he'd destroyed his credibility, and of course they're right...

    So at least one of them is gonna pay a price for trying to foist this hoax on the public... hopefully, nobody will EVER take anything Biscardi has to say seriously, ever again...

    Biscardi has been involved in a few hoaxes prior to this one. The dude is a real flake.
