Grover Krantz was an American anthropologist and one of the very few scientists to have researched Bigfoot as well as believing in cryptids, something that actually cost him research grants and promotions due to the criticism he received. He passed away from pancreatic cancer on 14 February, 2004, and at his request, no funeral was held; his body was taken to the body farm where the decomposition could be studied to aid forensic investigations. Following this, he had requested that his body was laid to rest in a green cabinet in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History alongside his three Irish Wolfhounds, Yahoo, Clyde, and Lucky, whom he had also donated to science following their death. In 2009, his skeleton was articulated along with the skeleton of one of his beloved dogs where they were put on display.
