The Long Lost “Minnesota Iceman” Resurfaces… in Austin, Texas!
In the 1960s, the "Minnesota Iceman" was paraded from mall to fairground, leaving rumors of Bigfoot, missing links and government conspiracy in its wake.

Then, just as quickly as the 6-foot-tall frozen beast surfaced, it vanished -- until now.

Earlier this year, Steve Busti -- owner of the Museum of the Weird in Austin, Texas -- bought the ice man from the family of its original owner in Minnesota. He's going to once again reveal the ape-like creature to the world starting July 3 at his museum.

Back in the 1960s I saw this exhibit twice as a gradeschool child, and I examined it very closely.

There was a swirl of frozen blood leaking out of the eye socket.

The exhibit stank like rotten meat.

I stood withing inches of the ice block.

As a child I knew what dead animals looked like, smelled like. Up close. Freshly dead, and rotting dead.

I knew how to slaughter and dress out a chicken. (Kids used to learn those things)

Whatever this was, it had once been alive, it had bled during the process of freezing, and it was rotting.

Was it a human? I do not know, all I know is that it was flesh.

The original story was something to the effect that it was an "ape man" shot in Siberia, then somehow found or captured in the freezer of a North Vietnamese spy boat.

It was a complicated story, but one which hit upon every element of Cold War intrigue.

It was as though the story was to exploit every possible legal loophole of how something that was possibly a human being wound up in a chunk of ice, and somehow a Communist Enemy was at fault.

Saw it a couple times at the Minnesota State Fair. It was realistic enough to go back to see it again another year. Could be an elaborate hoax. But from the steady stream of customers wanting to see it, they could make a killing on it once again. Not sure about in a museum, but if they moved it to the Texas State Fair, with a carnival barker outside, they'd be rolling in the cash.

Wakipedia isn't very reliable.

Dig closer and you'd find out that there are two of them. One is fake and one is supposedly real. The story goes that the Feds were on his ass so that's why he had wax copy of it just in case. I'd be surprise if that's a real one on Austin after so many years.

Bumping this thread out of curiosity.

Did anyone else see this original exhibit as a child (or young adult)?

It has stuck in my mind like nothing else for well over forty years.

AND I remember my dad read Argosy magazine way back then, and Argosy had a lengthy article about the Ice Man.

It is my greatest hope that somehow that thing in the ice -- be it man, hominid, or elaborate fake -- is finally tested scientifically and the mystery resolved.

IF the new owner seeks out reputable DNA testing, that will be a great step towards resolving things... or opening Pandorra's Box.

Usually I am a skeptic of most things on GLP. But I saw -- and smelled -- this thing up within inches of its flesh.

There was a curl of blood leaking out of the eyesocket, frozen in the ice.

I'm sure what you saw back then was real. I am not convinced that it is the same one that will be displayed. I think it is a wax copy that will be displayed. I can't imagine the real one being frozen after all these years. I thought this guy got rid of it before the feds got to him. The story behind this is bizarre...

It was a Neanderthal, no doubt about that.

In 1969, Heuvelmans wrote an article in a Belgian scientific journal about the Iceman suggesting that it was a new species with Neanderthal affinities called Homo pongoides, and theorized it was most likely shot and killed in Vietnam during the Vietnam War.

Re: The Long Lost “Minnesota Iceman” Resurfaces… in Austin, Texas!
On the 12th December, 1968, the Society (*) of which the writer is Administrative Director received a telephone call from a Mr. Terry Cullen of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to inform us that he had inspected a corpse of what appeared to be a fully-haired hominid preserved in partially clear ice in a side-show at the International Livestock Exposition's annual fair in Chicago during the period 28th November to the 7th of December. Mr. Cullen who was then unknown to us is a zoologist maintaining a commercial enterprise specializing in herpetology, and is the discoverer of several new species of iguanid lizards in the Caribbean area.

COMMENT BY BERNARD HEUVELMANS (D. Sc., Brussels University; F.Z.S.. London; collaborator Scientifique Royal Institute of Natural Sciences, Belgium; International Institute of Sociology, Rome; International Union for the Protection of Nature and Natural Resources.)

FOR the first time in history, a fresh corpse of Neanderthal-like man has been found. It means that this form of Hominid, thought to be extinct since prehistoric times, is still
living today.
The long search for rumored live ape-menor missing links has at last been successful.
This was not accomplished by expeditions to far away places and at great expense, but by the accidental discovery, in this country, of a corpse preserved in ice. The specimen is an adult human-like male, six feet tall, differing from all types of modern man by these striking characteristics:
1. Extreme hairiness;
2. An apparent shortness of the neck
3. A barrel-shaped torso, more rounded than in modern man;
4. Extremely long arms, which must reach to the knees when hanging;
5. Disproportionate hands and feet. Hands are eleven inches long and more than seven inches wide. Feet are eight inches wide.
6. Peculiar relative proportions of both fingers and toes. The thumb is longer than modern man's and the toes are all nearly the same size.
Most of these characteristics agree with what is known of the classic Neanderthals. Is has been established that:
1. It cannot be an artificial, entirely manufactured object (it is actually decomposing);
2. It cannot be a composite, produced by assembling anatomical parts taken from living beings of different species (if the face looks merely unusual, both hands and feet are unknown in any zoological form);
3. It cannot be a normal individual belonging to any one of the known races of modern man (even the hairiest of the hairy Ainus of Japan are not that hairy);
4. It cannot be an abnormal individual, or freak, belonging to any of the known races of modern man because, in all cases of hypertrichosis, i.e. abnormal development of the hair, the most hairy areas are the outside of the upper head, the chin, cheek, upper lip, axillae, middle of chest and crotch; here, these areas have a less profuse growth of hair. Moreover, the specimen cannot have been preserved in ice for centuries or millennia. This is physically impossible.
The peculiar structure of the ice and the presence of a pool of blood around the head show that, immediately after death, the corpse was placed in a freezer tank filled with water and artificially frozen. A large caliber bullet entering the right eye apparently killed the specimen. The impact blew out the rear of the skull and forced the left eye out of its socket. To sum up, this specimen is a contemporary representative of an unknown form of Hominid, most probably a relic of the Neanderthal type. The belief, based on strong testimonial evidence, that small, scattered populations of Neanderthals survive, has been held for years by some scientists, mostly Russian and Mongolian.
