Yeah, DNA from a Human and an opossom
The sad part? This story made it to Inside Edition today. Not the most reputable of news sources, but still

Inside Edition? Hell, it was on CNN.com. Most of the major wire services and internet news sources have picked it up. I'm not sure why anyone gave it any credibility...for such a finding to be considered credible at all access to the specimen would have to be given to an appropriate team of experts. They clearly had no intention of doing that.

It still might be true. It is very possible that the DNA did come out correctly because of contamination. I think they should do more testing instead of just relying on one test
As stated in the last part of the article

Dude cmon....are you serious?
It's fake. You are really reaching now.
The hoaxers have admitted to it being a fake.
Georgia Bigfoot Body Hoax
The "Georgia Bigfoot Body" story is a hoax, started by two fellows in Georgia. The "body" is a widely available Halloween costume stuffed into a large cooler, with some animal entrails laid on top. This ongoing hoax is now being orchestrated by a notorious con-man named Carmine Thomas Biscardi.
Click here to see the full press conference. It is 43 minutes long.
It would be nice if someone(s) could put a video sequence together (and upload it to YouTube) showing the various contradictions Whitton makes in this press conference, compared to what he claimed in his earlier YouTube clips, which are linked to the message forum below. There are many glaring contradictions in his claims -- contradictions which will show him to be an extraordinary, shameless liar. That should be enough to get this corrupt sheriff deputy fired from the Clayton County Sheriffs department. Other law enforcement officers should demand his termination once they see examples his astounding bald-faced dishonesty.
The profitteering scam has officially been launched by Biscardi:
Biscardi has put some "photos of the body" on his web site and is charging a fee for people to see them. That's how these scammers will try to cash in on this hoax.
It won't be long before someone gains access to those photos, perhaps by paying to see them, and then re-posts them on one or more free web sites. When that happens, we will definitely provide a link to them on this web site (which is quite legal for us to do) so they can be freely viewed by the public. No one will pay to see their fake photos after that. Their hoax scam will flop.
These guys probably thought they had devised the perfect crime, but people will not pay to see handful of dubious photos, not on the Internet, not anymore. Photos get around quickly on the Internet, as will these bogus photos.
Links to the forum providing background details on the hoax:
Here's how the hoax got started.
Here's how the hoax was debunked.
See all of the YouTube videos of Whitton spouting his ridiculous lies.
See the comments of the BFRO after the Palo Alto press conference.
These Georgia buffoons( ) do not run bigfoot expeditions and never have. That's just another one of their lies. They are simply two clowns in Georgia who put some bogus videos on YouTube that got some attention. They initially offered bigfoot expeditions because they were aware of the popularity of BFRO expeditions.
When they first got some press attention in Georgia, the press attention attracted the notorious Carmine Thomas Biscardi. Among other sleazy ventures, Biscardi has been pushing hoaxed bigfoot evidence for several years now. He seems to pop up wherever the bigfoot subject is getting local press attention -- a sort of Reverend Al Sharpton of the bigfoot world. But unlike Sharpton, who has become a respectable defender of minority rights, Biscardi's ploys have won him the well-deserved reputation among the bigfoot research community as a charlatan, a parasite, a hoaxer, and a scam artist.
Biscardi perpetrated a similar "bigfoot body" hoax on a nationally syndicated radio show in 2005. He confessed to the hoax on the air when pressed by the irate talk show host, George Noory.
Biscardi recently announced a press conference for Friday in San Francisco or Palo Alto. The purpose of this grand ruse is to attract lots of attention to himself. His M.O. is to hold the attention of the mass media while he arranges various deals for documentaries, books, etc.
On the surface the scam does not appear to make any sense ... because Biscardi and these two Georgia clowns will eventually be shown to be liars and frauds. That has never stopped Biscardi before. He doesn't care if he's exposed later, if he can make a quick buck while he's in the spotlight at the moment. That's the game all three these guys (Biscardi, Dyer and Whitton) are playing right now.
Legitimate bigfoot researchers have mixed emotions about this whole affair. On the one hand, it's sickening to watch this ridiculous hoax receive as much attention as it has gotten. On the other hand, this is Biscardi's final hurrah. Eventually the media will figure out that it's a hoax, and the public will never take him seriously ever again after that, and he will finally go away.
The press conference transpired in Palo Alto.
As expected, they didn't show the "body," and as expected they said, again, the world will have to "wait and see" ... All the while Biscardi can do some deals to put some money in his pocket, from publishers, producers, etc., (and share it with the Georgia boys) before it is obvious to everyone that it was just another Biscardi hoax.
The only scientist involved with them (Curt Nelson) simply received a "DNA sample" in the mail. Three results so far from that sample: 1) unknown, 2) human, and 3) possum. Nelso will do more tests, but he has said his tests don't mean anything.
Biscardi claims that other scientists will be doing more studies on the body, which will make a nice excuse to string the media along for a few more weeks.
The media will see that no "scientists" from any respectable institution will be allowed to examine the body ... They might be given more dubious "DNA samples" and fake photos, but the body itself will never be revealed, because it is just a costume.
The most important part of the press conference, from our perspective, was the growing pile of contradictions in their story. Whitton actually said they had no interest in bigfoots, and were not looking for one, before they "stumbled upon" the body. That's in very sharp contrast to what he claimed on his YouTube videos, where he said he has dreamed about being a bigfoot researcher since he was kid. These two clowns were trying to promote a bigfoot expedition business several weeks before they started spouting claims about having a body.
Whitton also said, during the press conference, that he "didn't notice any wounds on the carcass" and didn't know how it died -- another statement that is in direct contradiction to what he claimed in their early YouTube videos ... videos which were thankfully preserved by friends of the BFRO before Whitton and Dyer tried to remove them from YouTube.
To see these videos, which clearly demonstrate how willing these boys are to spin very big yarns, look for the YouTUbe links in the first post of the thread on the blue form linked above -- the forum with more details on the background of this hoax.
Biscardi is a professional liar from Las Vegas, and he found himself a corrupt cop who was willing to lie along with him in order to pull off a big media hoax/scam. The three of them are confident that they cannot be prosecuted for this hoax, but they may be in for a surprise.
Witness all the lies of deputy Whitton in his own videos, linked above.
