There are lots of inaccuracies in this post. I wouldn't say that Conroe, which is about 40 miles north of Houston, is a hick town. As of July 1, 1999, it had a population of 38517. Chilcutt is not a deputy on the police force, he is THE latent fingerprint examiner for the Conroe Police Dept. His testimony on fingerprint evidence convicts people. I would say that he is an ace fingerprint expert. To quote an article about Jimmy Chilcutt that was published in the Feb. 21, 2000 issue of the Houston Chronicle, "He is highly regarded by agents of the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and state and local law enforcement agencies because of his innovative techniques and ability to find fingerprints where others fail." Chilcutt has amassed the largest collection of non-human primate prints in the world. This article can be found in full on our website at http://www.texasbigfoot.com/houstonchron1.html
