The Lagarfljót Worm Truth Committee has asked for more time to evaluate if a video Hjörtur Kjerúlf took in February 2012 is in fact a video of the mythical Lagarfljót Worm.
The 13-person committee was set up by the district council of Fljótsdalshérað municipality in August 2012. The district council had 15 years earlier offered prize for a photo of the Lagarfljót Worm, but the prize was never paid out.
Hjörtur Kjerúlf, a farmer at Hrafnkelsstaðir who was 66 year old at the time video was taken has know claimed the prize.
