A Belgian man being tormented by a sinister pizza prankster, a pair of possible Bigfoot dens discovered in New York, and the surprising end, for now, to the saga of Fenn's treasure were among the strange, unusual, and enlightening stories that crossed our radar this past week.
In one of the weirder stories we've seen in quite some time, it was revealed that a Belgian man has been on the receiving end of a nine-year-long campaign of harassment from some nefarious person who keeps ordering pizzas to be delivered to his house. While the one-sided prank war may sound amusing to some, Jean Van Landeghem says that it has been a living nightmare as delivery drivers show up at his door at all hours of the night and, as one can imagine, they're usually not too thrilled about getting stiffed on the bills for the food that the man never ordered. Uncertain of who could be behind the harassment and unable to get help from local authorities, the beleaguered man finally took to the media in Belgium in the hopes of finding some solace from the pizza stalker.
Sasquatch enthusiasts in New York's Hudson Valley are on the lookout for the famed cryptid following an intriguing report from some hikers who stumbled upon a sizeable print and a pair of remarkable structures which some believe could have been Bigfoot dens. The thought-provoking finds were made in a forest in the town of Cairo last week and were subsequently brought to the attention of a research group in the area. The organization plans to set up camera traps in the area to see if they can capture images of the creature that created the curious structures on film, which is probably safer than walking up to the spot and potentially waking up whatever is sleeping inside.
Easily the most exciting story of the week occurred somewhere in the Rocky Mountains when a yet-to-be-identified individual managed to do what hundreds of thousands of people have spent the last decade trying to accomplish: find the legendary Fenn Treasure. The hunt for the hidden chest of gold, jewels, and artifacts officially came to an end when the creator of the chase, eccentric art dealer Forrest Fenn, announced that a man "from back East" had found the riches. This development was both bittersweet and somewhat maddening for fans of the mystery as the identity of the finder, the location of the treasure, and how exactly the discovery occurred all remain shrouded in secrecy.
