Long Claw (UN-B-0281)
But one of the most inventive attempts of decoding the Rocarff treasure trail in recent years came from a group of international archaeologists and historians. In 1981, Dr Manfrid Goetlich came up with the idea of simultaneously carrying out research, each in a different continent, theorizing that the creature could not operate in separate locations at the same time.

However within days of starting the experiment, the police recovered the beaten body of Dr Manfrid Goetlich from the river Rhine.

Days later, Dr Xi Chang, the second of the four group members, was found dead at his Beijing home after failing to arrive for work.

An autopsy into his death revealed he had suffered a major heart attack. Associates had claimed that Chang had become extremely anxious upon hearing of Goetlich's demise.
