RIP Erik Beckjord

Beckjord’s Bigfoot Head

Originally uploaded by matthetube

Paranormal investigator Erik Beckjord passed away recently of prostate cancer, according to a Sam Whiting’s moving memorial in the Chronicle. Beckjord had a Cryptozoology museum on Union Street briefly in the late ’90s, and, according to this photo from matthetube’s Flickr stream, had operated one in Malibu before that, in the late ’80s.

Beckjord wrote the weird and rarely updated Beckjord Blog. His other claim to fame was reportedly updating the sign at the Lafayette Hillside Memorial that said how many US soldiers had been killed.
