[Ref. ge1:] GEORGE M. EBERHART:

[Ref. lc1:] LOREN COLEMAN:

The author mentions that a Bigfoot-type creature seen in French Lick, Indiana, was called "Fluorescent Freddie".

[Ref. dd1:] DAVID J. DAEGLING:

The author indicates that John Willison Green wrote in his book the Apes Among Us about a Midwestern cousin of Bigfoot, "fluorescent Freddie", seen in French Lick, Indiana, sporting green fur, being 10 feet tall, and easy to spot at night because of its red glowing eyes.

[Ref. bf1:] "BIGFOOT FACT OR FANTASY?" WEBSITE:

The website lists that in March 1965, in French Lick, Indiana, youngsters saw a 10 feet green monster with glowing red eyes, and named it "Fluorescent Freddie."

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in French Lick, Indiana, on March 15, 1965, at night, several local youngsters reported seeing a 10-foot tall "monster" that was green in color and had glowing red eyes. It was apparently seen in a wooded area. No other information.

Albert Rosales indicates as source John Green, Sasquatch, The Apes Among Us.

[Ref. in1:] ON THE WEB:

"An earlier Bigfoot-type creature was seen near French lick, Indiana in 1965.A bright green monster with glowing red eyes nicknamed 'Florescent Freddie,' was reported by dozens of witnesses to be 10 feet tall."

Points to consider:

Obviously there is nothing more here than a newspaper article, possibly extremely short, telling the alleged monster encounter of teenagers. It then became a bigfoot sighting, reproduced from books to books to website without any investigation or research.
