Punk’d by the Monster of Montauk! ‘Beastie’ was a movie prop
The so-called Monster of Montauk has been exposed as an imaginative publicity stunt dreamed up by the makers of a new movie. Apparently, Rachel Goldberg, the woman who discovered the famed beastie, is the sister of none other than producer Darren Goldberg (pictured above), who is making a movie about, you guessed it, …monsters.
Meanwhile, with the ‘riddle’ solved, Nicky Papers, the owner of Montauk-Monster.com – a site set up to investigate the sightings – has now put his domain name up for sale. Somehow we doubt he’ll be getting monster-sized offers for it!
Explains Papers: “Maintaining this website has become too much work for me and it’s been hard finding time because I have a full-time job. Additionally, I need to spend more time with family.” Yeah, right – that’s the reason!
