The witness showed At the beginning of March 1959 I was in the police station and during this time there was a conversation that the tourists were killed. In the duty room sat one Mansi, I do not know his name, but they said that it was Kurikov, but what was his name-I do not know. Kurikova was asked how the tourists could have died. Kurikov said that near the holy mountain, where this mountain is located, he does not say, there live five Ostyaks. They are like savages, they are not friends with Mansi or with Russian people. In Ivdel they never happen. And these Ostyaks could kill tourists because they wanted to ascend the holy mountain or because they thought that tourists could kill their deer and moose, which they feed on. Kurikov expressed only his own assumptions, but how it happened he actually does not know Kurikov. But earlier Kurikov saw these savages Ostyakov, but a long time ago some years ago. Where the mountain is a saint, Kurikov does not know. But I also maintain that Kurikov expressed his supposition. He said this since we had a conversation that we found dead tourists and asked Mansi Kurikov how it could have happened. At this conversation there was a militiaman Pyzhov (?).
