General note although reuter certain to file, Madame's main contention is that these X's represent a probable link between known fossils of the past and modern man.
gv french sociologist madame jacqueline roumeguere-ebehart at presser in norfolk hotel nairobi.
she begins her statement. various grabs. as it was not possible to see her statement before or afterwards (as she is planning to set it to the highest bidder) covering pressor made difficult. basically she identified 4 creatures which she named x1.....x4. their characteristics vary in hair colour and the type of implements they use. but for our purpose it is sufficient to note that x1 is the first creature she describes. he uses a wooden half-tree to hunt. that grab is on film. x4 is the one using arrows which were singularly uninspiring.
i think its on this roll that she reiterates why she became interested in the project.
from memory questions of relevance are "Why haven't we heard about this before?" She answers that she had beard before but only became interested of late. Also there is a question about female X's which she partially answers before I unfortunately run out of film.
I ask her to describe the females which she does and also tells a story about the little baby X's.
she and her masai helper walk into the norfolk (maybe battery ran down)
Coverage & sound ???

Background: General note although reuter certain to file, Madame's main contention is that these X's represent a probable link between known fossils of the past and modern man. She first came to Kenya in 1966 to study the ORMAA social complex ( tribes like Masai, Samburu etc). She first started investigation the missing link about 2 months ago when she heard of a man being captured by one of these X's chrs.
