Has the Existence of the South Carolina ‘Lizard Man’ Finally Been Proven?

On Sunday, August 2nd, 2015, a woman named Sarah claims she captured proof of the fabled South Carolina creature known as the ‘Lizard Man’ while attending Church with a friend. The Sumter resident explains that she stepped out of the sanctuary and saw a large, scaly humanoid creature running along the treeline. 

Acting quickly, Sarah pulled out her cellphone and snapped a picture of the creature. “My hand to God, I am not making this up.” Sarah told ABC News 4 in an email. “So excited!

After the story aired, a man who wishes to remain anonymous, submitted a video to ABC News 4 of a video he shot back in May of 2015. He believes it shows the same creature Sarah photographed. The man says he captured the video while raccoon hunting in Scape Ore Swamp, which is the area where most Lizard Man sightings have occurred.

In the video, the man hides behind a tree as a humanoid figure walks through the trees about 30-40 yards (27-36 meters) ahead. Suddenly, the figure stops and turns towards the man. He says he then became frightened, stopped the recording and quickly fled the area.

I saw your lizard man story and it’s given me the courage to send you a video I took in early May.” The man wrote in an email to ABC News 4. “Though my wife believes me that it’s real, she said she would be embarrassed that everyone would think I was a loon so I kept it a secret. If you’re wondering I absolutely believe it’s real. I also don’t know if it’s the same thing you posted.  When it noticed me I high tailed it out.

Though these two recent pieces of evidence have caused quite a stir online, many have expressed skepticism over their authenticity. Many believe Sarah’s photo shows nothing more than a person in a costume. As for the anonymous hunter’s video, most agree that the figure is too far away to accurately determine what exactly it is.

Personally, I have to agree that the photo looks very fake. As for the video, it’s hard to say. The figure could’ve been a real cryptid creature, but the likelihood is admittedly low. What do you think? Do either of these two pieces of evidence prove that the Lizard Man is more than just a creature of legend?

The incident began after police were called to the scene for a noise violation. The victim, 18-year-old Chris Cuneo, was not responsible for the noise and was attempting to walk away from the scene. However, officers Creedon and Svenson, of the West Deptford police department, were having none of that.

It was a party. Everybody started leaving the party and my friend Sebastian told me to stay behind and talk to the police with him. I said, “no problem buddy.”When I open the door, the police walked in they noticed all the open containers and started asking us for ID and our names. I said since we’re not being detained I don’t have to answer any questions. He said, “you do have to give him your name. Give him your name right now.” I said, “why?” He said because it’s an obstruction of the investigation.

New Jersey is not one of the 24 states that have a Stop and Identify law. The only reason these officers had a right to ask Cuneo for his name is if they had reasonable suspicion of him committing a crime. Even if police had reasonable suspicion, Cuneo is under no obligation to identify himself to officers. In the video, police never verbalized their reasonable suspicion. They simply attacked a teenager who did not want to give his name and who had committed no crime. As Cuneo attempted to walk away, one officer held him while another punched him in the face multiple times, according to witnesses.

As Cuneo explains,

I said well I don’t even want to be a part of any of this and then I took two steps towards the door and they bum rushed me. The cop I was talking to got on top of me on the ground and punched me 3 times in the face, knocking me unconscious.

Since Cuneo was knocked unconscious during the attack, he was brought to the Cooper Trauma center. He had to be given stitches on the inside of his mouth and the outside of his face to repair the damage inflicted on him by public servants.The officers’ subsequent reaction to Cuneo’s assertion of his rights is nothing short of criminal assault. However, as is the case most of the time, these officers arrested and charged Cuneo with a crime after they assaulted him. After officer Creedon had bloodied this teen’s face, he and officer Svenson arrested Cuneo and charged him with Hindering, Resisting Arrest, and Obstruction. According to the West Deptford police department, the incident is under investigation.


Once again humans acting as agents for the fictional “state”, under the control of money and the belief in “authority” commit an unlawful act, and nothing will happen to them.  What would happen if someone did this to an “officer”? It would have been within the victims rights to use force to halt the violence, but WE ALL KNOW that would just be used as a excuse to raise the violence level, and kill the victim. No one is safe from these types of humans, and the “legal system” has no intention of halting this behavior. In fact the legal system requires this level of mental incompetence across the board in order to exist.
