A Bigfoot hunter who believed the elusive creatures were "fallen angels" and tied to religious texts has been found dead, a statement confirmed.
Leading Bigfoot researcher Scott Carpenter passed away last week, marking the second death in the community in the past month.
Mr Carpenter's work was well known in the elusive creatures community, which earlier this month mourned the death of fellow Bigfoot investigator Claudia Ackley, who died of a heart attack aged 51.

News of Carpenter's death was published to Facebook and announced by his friends, who confirmed the man who believed the Sasquatch to be a "fallen angel" had died of a brain aneurysm.
A Facebook post from Tony Merkel confirmed the death and said the researcher would be missed "immensely".
He wrote: "This morning Scott Carpenter’s son Travis called me to say that his father passed away suddenly from a brain aneurysm last night. Scott and I had been becoming good friends since he appeared on my show.
"He lived 10 minutes from the office and we had been planning on recording more and going out to his areas where he’s had his incredible experience. He will be miss by all of us immensely."
Mr Carpenter had claimed to encounter and interact with a number of elusive creatures including Bigfoot, Dogman, the Little People, Aliens and Cloaked Entities, Indy100 reported.

His research had previously suggested the Sasquatch could be a sign of "Fallen Angels", an entity created, Scott believed, when a creature "procreated with human women."
A friend of Scott paid tribute to him, writing: "He was one of the most selfless guys out there and helped me many times. Would do anything for you. If it wasn't for his friendship I probably wouldn't be involved with the Bigfoot world.
"He was definitely a major influence on the direction my life has taken. He will be greatly missed."
Another added: "So sorry to hear. I've always enjoyed Scott's videos and books. Thoughts and prayers for his family."
