The Dyatlov Pass Accident


In 1959, nine experienced cross country skiers, led by Igor Dyatlov, were trapped in a snowstorm and decided to set camp and sleep it out.

Later that night, something made all nine people leave their tents in such a hurry that they ripped them open from within. These people stumbled down the slope, in subzero weather, only in their underwear with no socks or shoes. All nine were discovered dead and frozen by a search party about a month later.

Here's where it gets really creepy: three of the nine suffered massive chest and head injuries that could only be caused by forces akin to that of a car crash, but without any external wounds. There were high doses of radioactivity. And if those weren't weird enough: one victim was missing her tongue.

It would be interesting to know if there were conspicuous military demotions near the time this occurred. Could anyone else but military have killed these people in such a manner? So they had to try and cover it up with UFO speculation. It was a sloppy murder, I imagine there were some very displeased military commanders as a result.

scavenger animals often eat the tongue first -- it's soft, accessible and pure protein. people find dead deer and other animals in the woods with no tongues...little field mice can eat those very easily down to a clean nub.
