Forensics Investigator William McDonald has been researching it for twelve years, best-selling author Steve Alten has written about it in his latest release, The LOCH, and now locals and visitors alike are starting to believe.
The owner of a Scottish fishing boat, traveling north along the Caledonian Canal, entered Loch Ness and detected Âsomething massiveÂ on his fish finder. ÂIt passed about 145 meters beneath my boat, shadowed me for a good minute, then disappeared in the opposite direction. It was at least five meters larger than my boat, which is thirteen meters, quite scary really. Of course, crossing Loch Ness or any of the Lochs, youÂre always thinking about sighting the monster. Right after it happened, I radioed my wife, she thought it was a joke.Â
Theories about Nessie being a giant eel are becoming more popular, thanks to Nessie researcher, Bill McDonald, who optioned his theories to author Steve Alten for his fictional thriller, THE LOCH. In December the forensics investigator interviewed two English visitors who reported Âsomething largeÂ coming ashore one night as they walked back to their hotel. McDonald returned the next day to find, frozen tracks of an animal documented to be fifty to sixty feet long. Photos can be found at http://loch-movie.tripod.com
Months later McDonald was contacted by two American college students who discovered a half-eaten deer and the remains of a 4-inch barbed tooth, shed by its attacker. The tooth was later confiscated by a man reported to be a water bailiff. Scottish Authorities have refused to comment on the incident.
The boaterÂs report follows a slew of winter sightings, all occurring between December and March, at night. ÂThis is consistent with my theories, Â says McDonald, who believes the creatureÂs eyes are nocturnal. ÂThe area the boat owner was passing through is very close to the area that deer was found. For good reason, a few locals IÂve been in contact with refer to the area as a ÂKill Zone.Â
