The man, identified as Randy Lee Tenley, was apparently wearing the store-bought suit when he was struck by a car driven by a 15-year-old girl, NBCMontana.com reported. Another car swerved, and a third car, troopers say driven by a 17-year old girl, ran him over, the station reported.

A ghillie suit is a type of three-dimensional camouflage, sometimes worn by military snipers. The suits are available online and at hunting shops. Troopers say the get-up played a big role in his death.

“He probably would not have been very easy to see at all,” said Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Jim Schneider.

“It appears the pedestrian was well into the driving lane,” said Schneider. Officials closed Highway 93 for two hours on Sunday night, as firefighters directed traffic and officers investigated. What they found is troubling.

“According to his companions, he was out there in the ghillie suit attempting to incite a sighting of Bigfoot, to make people think they had seen a Sasquatch.
