On May 25, 1972, police in Pekin and Peoria, Illinois, received over two hundred reports of a white apelike creature that left three-toed tracks and gave off a strong odor. The creature was first spotted near Cole Hollow Road and became known as The Cole Hollow Road Monster or "Cohomo" for short. Sightings of the monster lasted through July.These sightings eventually lead to an organized search involving one hundred volunteers. The search was called off when one of the volunteers shot himself in the leg.
