Born in Missouri in 1931 and relocated to Yakima at a young age, Bob Gimlin is a tough but intriguing character. Part Chirokowa Apache, and a former Navy boxing champion, and a former rodeo contender, he is adored by the nearby Yakama Indian tribe, having trained many of their mountain horses.

One of the people who helped shape the Hieronimous story for the press is a notorious publicity scam-artist named Kal Korff -- a man described by national radio talk show host Art Bell as "the most brazen media deceiver in the country". He is more well known among UFO research circles, and JFK Assassination Conspiracy circles.

Korff is a curious species of self-promoter. Watch the video above to ascertain Korff's credibility. He has a delusional pathology similar to the late Erik Beckjord, combined with the publicity seeking compulsions of Biscardi.

Bob Gimlin (right) is an authentic horse-whisperer, straight out of an old Disney film. He was a champion in his day (champion boxer, rodeo contender, etc.). He worked in a variety of jobs and eventually became a full-time horse trainer, his true passion in life.

The reason Gimlin was involved with the Patterson footage to begin with was because of his reputation as a talented horseman. Patterson needed the toughest, most dependable horseman he could find for that 1967 trip in the mountains of Nor Cal. Everyone knew Gimlin was the best of the best in the region when it came to the sort of venture Patterson was proposing.

Yakima folks say Bob Hieronimous, by contrast, was always an under-achiever, since he was young. His bare-minimum work ethic won him no admirers in the community. He didn't have many friends, compared to Gimlin. Gimlin had a rather large circle of friends in the Yakima Valley.

Hieronimous lives right down the street from Bob and Judy Gimlin.

Compared to the Hieronimous property, the Gimlins seem to have done nicely for themselves. The Gimlins' home has always been well maintained, and nicely painted, and the landscaping nicely manicured. The Gimlins always had nicer, newer vehicles in their driveway too. The Hieronimous family could never keep up with those Joneses.

It was a formula for envy in a small western town.

Hieronimous had been telling people in Yakima bars for years that he would someday find a way to make money off the Patterson footage, like his famous neighbor did.

But Gimlin never made any money off the PGF, though many people around Yakima assumed he did.

When Hieronimous was asked, during an in-depth, on-camera interview why he was coming forward 40 years after the fact ... his reply confused the interviewer a bit. Hieronimous said, "All these people have been making money off that footage for years. It's my turn now." See that interview below.

He was referring to all the other people who had claimed to be involved with the footage, who Hieronimous assumed made money from their claims. It was time for him to get a piece of that action.
