I was watching the show when you went to egypt. You had a picture of a pillar of white light. I have pictures of the same thing. And ive had an expereince with the pillar of white light. It came out of the rocks in my fire place. It first look like a ball of smoke then when my friend cathy saw it she said oh my god. It took form of the pillar of light and glowed. Before everyone could look up at it It did a small loop went through my friend carol then went through cathy. Did two big loops around the room and then went into my face. It went so fast that everyone saw it as a flash of light. And im talking ten people saw this. but for some reason i saw it in slow motion. two weeks later i had a holloween party and a friend took a picture of me in my costume and next to me is the pillar of white light. My friend carol went to a docter after it went through her chest cause she had a bruise on her. when they took an exray the bruise went all the way through her and was on her back to. The doc told her that only a bolt of lighting could do something like that. And now she has a scar of two doves on her chest. And ever since it went into my face ive been having visions of the future. I have other pictures of it but thats a nother story. I can help you with knowing what it is.


I may have some insite into a possible explanation for the animal you encountered in the sugar-cane fields in Egypt. I am a Operation Iraqi Freedom combat vet. I am also a Police Officer with over 18 years experience to include criminal investigation. While conducting night time operations in Iraq, several of my team members observed animals similar to the claims of the locals you interviewed in Egypt. We determined that the animals we were seeing through nods and infra red were striped hyenas. I observed one walk by me at night so close that I heard it breathing. We were always in situations where we could not take a photo due to the risk of being compromised. We always encountered feral dogs but these animals were different, in shape, size and gaite. We never heard stories from any local civilians regarding attacks and the animals appeared wary and shy. I think they scavanged through the abundance of trash for food.


Hey Josh. I love the show. If you ever need any help with any investigations just e-mail me.


Hi Josh, i'm a huge fan of the show i never miss a episode. Just as a suggestion, could you consider investigating these cryptids in the near future?

Josh !!! Your not going to believe this, I had a close encounter with a Sasqwatch years ago on my property ! it has put me on a life long quest to get proof of his exsistance I just got back from Washinton State in ground zero for his sightings we hiked to the locations at mt St helens we found a lock of hair EXACTLY like yours ! we put it in a evidence bag, when I saw that yours came back as a large primate I was stunned ! as I was thinking mine was maybe a moose but its not its does not match but yours is just like mine semi course same color same exact size and under 1600 power it is hair ! so deep it could not be human it was over large scat also which made me look around there we found it ! this will match yours in DNA I would bet on it ! contact me I will send you half of the sample pics first if you prefer ! God Speed Man ! love your show

Josh did you ever actually encounter anyone living in the city of Chernobyl when you went on season 3 ? as in living with the radiation in one of the homes or ???

Also do you know there is a better substance then plaster for making casts I have the name of it if you need it, its only about $10 a 2 lb box and it is far better for picking up minute details and hardens faster and stronger , ..


Joshua Pollina

hey josh my name is josh and iam 15 years old me and my dad watchs ur show all the time and i love ur show it is amazing well anyway a wanted to ask u if u could send 1 of those leather bracelets u wear on ur show to my house so i can give it to my father. my dad has always been looking for 1 but he has been distracted by going to iraq and what not. so plz email me!!! :) my dad would really be thankful.


This is just a tip for when you are all in the bush or jungle somewhere. If and when people get lost, it is very hard to hear some one yelling but if you all had a whistle on a string, hung around your neck and blow on it. The sound of the whistle will be heard well before someones voice yelling in the night. It is also much easier to pin point the direction it's coming from. (They don't cost that much...lol)


Hi Josh I would be very interested in meeting and chatting with you. in fact I know of a animal that still has not been categorized by science and is the worlds smallest carnivore, smaller then mustela nivalis.
I have been fascinated by this subject for decades because of witnessing this animal I am about to be describing to you. As a young boy I witnessed a small weasel like animal and still to this date not being able to match it to any known mustella species and I have written some smaller articles on cryptozoology and fish species as well.
I actualy captured this animal and could not get any authority to come and look at it he was inside a old cardboard box that i caught him with the old box string trick.
I tried to grab it and it escaped and it scratched myself and a friend of mine trying to catch it under the box. They look exactly like mustel nivalis or a ermine, however they are always black instead of tan or white and never change color be it fall or summer winter and are about half the size to 3/4 the size of mustela nivalis species.
It is possible that it is a strange morph that only occurs in the region i live in and makes them smaller and always black. However it seems to me more likely a sub species or maybe a totally different new mustela species. Considering it is always black and much smaller seems a major difference enough to give it maybe it's own classification .
If you are interested not only can I show you were this animal lives I am sure we could catch it easy enough with small fish bait and a weasel trap.
I never bothered trying to catch the animal again however I have witnessed it since. The last time was around 2000 however i have seen its small footprints and I am sure it still exists. There was a photo taken of it by me when it came out to sniff around at the bait we used to entice it out of a hole underneath a large bolder.
I lent it to a animal inspector who then gave it to a scientist in the museam who then passed it to some other scientest who then was going to investigate it further. That was over 20 years ago lol
I have never seen the photo again and I have tried from time to time in my odd spare time to get the photo back with no luck yet.
I may possibly still have the negative I am not the worlds greatest organizer. However i assure you it exists and i am also a expert at freshwater fish and I know the lakes in Canada and the US that have reports of lake monsters and I know except in a few cases what they are and i think I can prove this.
If you are interested please email me for I would love to chat with you.
You may wonder why I never bothered trying to catch it again with all the hassle trying to prove it and chasing photos I gave up on the government red tape and personally felt the animal was safer not being known. Now though some of the habitat is going and it may go extinct unless proved.

I would like to suggest you investigate the Jersey Devil starting where it all began at the Leeds Family old property in the state of New Jersey. I think with you and your crew investigating it would make a great show.

A true fan of the show,


Haha i came on here to post that they should investigate the jersey devil...I live near jersey and have heard lots about it and it would be cool if they investigated it hopefully they consider it and good luck on the new season looking forward to it...

true fan.


Loved your season 3 premiere. The Masada segment was amazing. The thought that you may have captured infrared of the spirit of someone from so long ago with such historical significance is amazing.

One quick question: Is Jael off the show? Was it time to swap out the designated "hot" sidekick explorer? (tongue in cheek joke). Seriously, is she off the show?

Good luck. I am a dedicated viewer and hate when the show is on hiatus.

Josh, I LOVE DESTINATION TRUTH!!! I think you and your crew have the most exciting and extreme job. I have had the privilege in my life to have experienced some weird things. I love your dedication to help find out the TRUTH! Stay real Stay safe. KIM

Neil Leininger

Josh, i love destination truth. I think its, for starters, the most realistic reality show ive seen. On the show you even spend time with the locals and learn new things where ever you go. I was acually wanting to persue or try to persue a career in exploration and supernatural investigations ever since I was a kid and I was acually wondering if you had any tips or suggestions on how I can get started? And like I said, I am a huge fan of destination truth and I cant wait to see what comes next. Thanks.

Also there is something happening in the woods. Contact Mr. Gilliland. I would love to attend and watch this event...wow!!!!

Jason Allen

Hey Josh,
I LOVE YOUR SHOW, I live on a little island in Canada, Prince Edward Island, I watch your show nightly even if it is a rerun. I am wondering about the show you did in Chilli where you were in the underground caves and found the thing under the ground that looked like a chicken. Have you found out anything about it?

Again I love the show.

Jason Allen


Attn : Josh, I enjoy watching show about fantasy paranormal worlds;
finding truth.But the women of your show seems to ruin show with thier fear,panic,dramatic, situation,etc, physical.I know their expeience in their field.I know the location are live, dangerous ,but seems false encounters.
As well to much close up of individuals; instead of scenery.And I believe
that don`t spend enough time resourcing, concluding the facts.For example few hours, or couple of days:unstead 3-6 wks or months.
Like your competetors,Lost Tapes, Is it real,Wierd freaky, Monsterquest.To much fonderling of camera.Thk you 4 time

Hello, I watch this show everytime I get the chance to. I really want to be on the team. Thanks

Hi Josh and folks,

I love your show. I am compelled to write because of an episode that you had done on elves in Iceland. I was struck by the fact that the forensic computer mock up you did of the elf looked very much like the "Dover Demon". This creature was first sighted in the spring durring the mid 70's in Millis and Dover Ma. At the time, I think it was called "The Creature".

Best of luck in your truth hunting endeavors,


Matt Bokulic
