MoMo The Missouri Monster 40 Years Later

(LOUISIANA)–Today is the 40th anniversary of an event that brought national attention to Louisiana Missouri.

Three children playing at their home near Star Hill reported seeing a tall, ape-like creature on this date  in 1972.

The apparent discovery of what was dubbed Momo the Missouri Monster set off two weeks of searches, sightings, a swarm of tourists and national publicity.   Some thought it was real and some thought it was fake, but other sightings were reported in Lincoln and Saint Charles counties.

Montgomery City native Bill Whyte, who’s now based in Nashville and will perform July 28th at the Pike County Fair, even wrote a song about Momo. While no formal ceremonies are planned to commemorate the alleged sightings, the Internet still abounds with Momo stories.
