Ladies And Gents, This Is Your Admin Speaking

On behalf of the forum crew, let me welcome you aboard Dyatlov Pass Forum. The forum is a spin off from this message board.

Nigel.

I call BS my friend. I told you several times, thats what general discussion is for... There is no isolation.

You are simply being a pissy-pants because its not called 'The BL Board" and you know it. FYI, I will fully represent the BL theory for you in the BL and UFO section.. No worries mate, nobody 'needs' to cater to you and kiss your royal behind. You had your chance...Know what Im saying?

Your not a fan of people having somewhere to discuss and develop NON BL theories. Fact

Nigel Evans 06-10-2017 09:36 (GMT)
No i'm still seeing fragmentation here, the virtue in the single thread that we have had todate is that a lot of good points come out of the contest of ideas, it creates a positive energy. If everyone is silo'ed in their own world you don't get the contest. I'm not a fan. Also i'm thinking of my own site for the BL theory Happy. I'm a software developer by profession and interested in developing in the MEAN stack so i'll let you know if/when i've got something to show, might take a while depending on other things.
Loose-Cannon 05-10-2017 18:11 (GMT)
Heck... If we merge Theories any further, the next thing to be merged will likely be BL and UFO. Lol
Loose-Cannon 05-10-2017 18:02 (GMT)
Nigel.

I don't think you realize that if you create a thread... You can change the original post at ANY TIME. I addition, if you were the moderator of the BL section, welp... You can move crap around all ya want in thar.

Again... General Discussion is where you will likely see alot of discussion. The individual (many merged) are where you go to talk only bl with your bl buddies, if you think that the bl section will be a ghost town.... I guess the theory needs improvement?

Its simple. Create a master post laying out your entire theory, sticky it so its at the top for all to see and never goes to page 2 etc. Modify it all ya want.... Lock it... Whatever!

Go to the General discussion board for mixing, matching, new theory ideas, combining, debating.... you know...GENERAL DISCUSSION.

Why would you be intimidated by other theories having their own discussion area where people can take a break from BL and expand their own ideas without heckling?
Admin 05-10-2017 17:59 (GMT)
@Nigel Evans
Since you are registered already, can you recount in a post the latest еxpose of the BL theory so I can update the site and we can have it at the beginning of the discussion. Don't think about the structure. Look how it's gonna look in a year time. http://taina.li
Nigel Evans 05-10-2017 17:50 (GMT)
@Admin - "You do realize that anything further down past 20 posts is lost for the posterity."

That's because the "THEORIES" section should be updatable by the nominated mentor.

Currently it's all too clumsy. I've refined the BL theory several times since that section was last changed.

That's how i would want it, a general discussion area and then a read only area for each theory to capture the argument todate. Having a seperate discussion area per theory is going to make things look lonely imo. Happy



@Lyndasez - the interview is in "Journey to Dyatlov Pass, Keith McClosky".
Admin 05-10-2017 16:41 (GMT)
Loose Cannon is right. This section has long outgrown it's container and taken a wrong turn at some point. Your activity brought the idea of a forum. What you do is a discussion which can only be managed by multiple threads and not what we have now. You do realize that anything further down past 20 posts is lost for the posterity. All the conversations are lost as threads. No topics no nothing.
Loose-Cannon 05-10-2017 12:58 (GMT)
#1 Again, the forum has a GENERAL DISCUSSION board in the Theories section. I have already merged many theories, and the entire point is to not have so much bleeding over and domination of the narrative just to push an agenda and silence others. Duplicating whats going on here is not tye objective.

#2 Call me crazy, but I don't think it was ever the owners intention to have a 4 mile long discussion/debate on a single page. Rather for it to be.... For comments. Namely on the site. As in.... "Hey, nice job and very informative", or "this is a great site with lots of information" etc.

#3 if you have input (always welcome) on the board structure, perhaps the place to discuss it is..... On the forum. Just a crazy thought.

In fact, I may recommend to Admin that this comment page be locked up. It's a vulnerability as a whole having no verification or registration and has diverged greatly from what I believe was the original intention.
Lyndasez 05-10-2017 11:44 (GMT)
@Nigel,
Re: forum
Wouldn’t a simple COVERUP topic address notions of true or false since we have only intuition to go on?

Also, where is this Ivanov bossmans interview located? Hibinaud? Name?

**thanks for the clarification on rav3.
Nigel Evans 05-10-2017 10:03 (GMT)
Just my thoughts on the new forum. I think you're fragmenting the discussion too much. Also you need a hierarchy of subjects. Based on the interview with Ivanov's boss either there was a state coverup or the interview is false. So you need a tree to cater for true or false on this "big" fact.

If true - then it rules out most of the theories, you are left with things the state must coverup- military accident, natural phenomena useful to the military (like BL), aliens perhaps.
If false then all theories are possible.

note to Amin: the new map on home page is good -- could you supply more on the region and Russia in general? Not knowing Soviet geography, its difficult to find things on the internet. (spent an hour - still confused) Some detailed maps with cities and distances -- locations of former gulags, train lines, military camps and etc. would help.

I won't have a problem with rule # 9 unless "loose cannon" posts under my name -- you / and administrator, should have no problem telling the difference -- the real JW doesn't curse people and doesn't claim to speak for them either. Just read some of my posts from the last few months -- and then read Loose Cannon. By the way has anyone out there read any Victor Hugo ?

from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loose_cannon_(naval)


A loose cannon refers to a cannon which gets dislocated and moves about randomly on the decks of a battleship, creating a hazard to crew and equipment.

A famous literary depiction of a loose cannon appears in Victor Hugo's 1874 novel "Ninety-Three", whose plot is set during the French Revolution. In a well-known episode, a ship of anti-revolutionary French Royalists is sailing towards Brittany, to aid the anti-revolutionary Chouannerie rebellion. While at sea, a sailor fails to properly secure his cannon, which rolls out of control and damages the ship. The sailor risks his life to secure the cannon and save the ship. The Marquis de Lantenac, leader of the Royalists, awards the man a medal for his bravery and then executes him (without trial) for failing in his duty.

--- nice guys, those French ---

The widespread publication of Hugo's book, both in the original French and in translation to various other languages, helped make the concept of a loose cannon more well-known. It has eventually developed a metaphorical meaning relating to a person who is acting in a wild and unpredictable manner and who constitutes as much danger to his or her own side as to the enemy.

-- or could be a danger to the new forum --

Like I said... Its easy to have a General discussion board for basic theory talk. The subsections for individual victims simply hold relative information and a place to discuss them individually.... Thats why its condensed with subsections for each and will not dominate the index. The theories as of right now are not in subsections.

Basically you have a small rules and board information section, individual victim section..... Then all the theories. As of right now its very basic and not nearly as crazy as the one I linked to. That was simply an example of how its a dedicated DPI forum and not just a topic within a board of many other things... Like your two links.

Relax. Dont crap a Volvo just yet.

#1. Its more secure
#2. Page load speeds will be instant because there wont be a 3 mile long blog type single thread
#3. Its organized
#4. Relative information are easily stickied in each section for quick reference
#5. Pictures and vids are displayed directly within the thread and uploading is free without joining an image hosting site.
#6. There is a full blown messaging system to privately message other users.
#7. You can set an email notification of new replies to any thread you choose... Like ones your most interested in.
#8. A full blown search function... Who doesn't like that?!?!
#9. Rules. John Wolfe may have a very hard time with this one. Just sayin.

I can literally go on and on as to why a dedicated forum is.... A giod thing. Winking

Its not like there is a trader section, vender section, feedback system, chatter box, retail section etc.

All Im currently doing is adjusting a ton of settings so it will work properly. Happy

Also uploading several mods so that pictures are 100% up-loadable right from the posting window without having to join a photo hosting site and uploading it to there first. Also a Youtube mod so vids will play directly within the thread etc.

If posters may be so bold as to weigh in on the forum construction ...I’d like to add my 2 cents.

Most of the DP forums that have 2”avatars & register info, fancy graphics, a gazillion categories, and bazillion photos clogging pages are largely defunct.

This comment section has the latest and most comments I’ve come across, due it’s simplicity— easy navigation, doesn’t hurt your eyes, can see many comments at once.

So my vote goes for simplicity.... :c)

Sepp 29-09-2017 22:00 (GMT)
Hey, great site!!!
I think in the end the military/special forces theory fits best – and we all know that this is not the first time someone comes to that conclusion. It is clear that at least some of the victims suffered major injuries, which only can be explained by the exposure to a tremendous/ explosive force. Who is in charge of explosives? The military.
And it seems that there was a lot of cover up done afterwards, to disguise the truth. And who is very experienced and good in covering something up? The military.
I think most of us would agree, that we don?t have an unlucky accident here, but a murder case. (Who has the license to kill? The military).
And after the homicide the military had enough time to cover their tracks, as the rescue team arrived after more than 20 days at the crime scene. And the rescue team was at first not aware that they had to deal with a crime scene. This became clear only after 2 months, when the more violently hurt bodies where found. All the evidence that may have been there initially was long ago gone. …and closer we will not get to the truth, as much as we try. We will never exactly know why the hikers had to die, nor what exactly made them leave their tent, nor what exactly happened that night - as much as we whish. There is only one way to know more than we already do: it may be that somewhere in forgotten secret archives (of the russain military maybe ;-) the report of that disastrous night including the scensored pieces is kept and hopefully released one day – but I doubt this will happen. Howsoever: In my opinion most of the other theories don?t fit and are contradictory (including ball lightning, drugs/shrooms, diseases, avalanche, infrasound, yeti…).

@KMM - Ivanov thought he knew the reason and he would have compiled the original file before it was confiscated.
KMM 29-09-2017 21:39 (GMT)
Nigel: well if the interview with Evgeny Okishev is to be believed there was a coverup ordered at a high level after the criminal investigation was underway, the clear order was to falsify the report as an accident whilst the real one was confiscated. From memory the second highest officer in the Russian criminal prosecution service travelled 400 miles to personally attend the autopsies on the first five bodies over three days. Gives you a feeling that the pathologist had the outcomes written for him.

I don't think you will get many arguments on a coverup. Just the reasons for it .

@Lyndasez - well if the interview with Evgeny Okishev is to be believed there was a coverup ordered at a high level after the criminal investigation was underway, the clear order was to falsify the report as an accident whilst the real one was confiscated. From memory the second highest officer in the Russian criminal prosecution service travelled 400 miles to personally attend the autopsies on the first five bodies over three days. Gives you a feeling that the pathologist had the outcomes written for him.
So if you embrace that interview as genuine there are few options. BL still fits as it could be the Soviets were investigating trying to weaponise it. They could have even been inducing it perhaps, hence the several eye witness accounts in that period...

@Lyndasez - "Umm, you're supposed to answer this as well, BL vs Deranged animal! "
BL, you're omitting to dial in what we now know about the coverup. It had to have been something very sensitive. That now rules out a huge number of possibilities including rabid reindeer and food poisoning btw.

My money is on either the military testing or interested in weaponising BL. That Kapitsa was working in this field at the same time and some of the group were working in nuclear resonates with me, they would have heard his theory for BL and people would be talking about it as a solution to the mansi siberian lights perhaps. So some intersects there.

Accidental deaths from military testing - well i see it as a coverup being launched late in the day after the state's legal arm found the first five and began an investigation. So i discount the tidying up theory, whatever it was didn't leave traces other than as reported.

Then they make quite rational choices, leaving a flashlight halfway down turned on (presumed to be a beacon to assist the return) collecting firewood, stripping bodies for extra clothing, building seats in a den (at least, if not building the den entirely).

@KMM -
The “Zolotarev strip” of film had ten frames in it and the cut edge matched the previous strip which had 17 frames. This previous strip of 17 frames covered pictures that Zolotarev had taken in earlier days. Both strips were free from emulsion damage but there was a small section of underdeveloped film on the ten frame strip due to the layers of film getting stuck together in the developing tank. The most glaring item to begin with, in the examination of Zolotarev’s film, was that nine frames were missing. There should have been a total of 36 frames but the two strips only had a total of 27 frames. So where were the missing nine frames? Whilst the dedicated conspiracy theorist can look for any evidence that points to a cover up of some kind, it could have been that the remaining strip or strips of nine frames had been lost. This is quite possible as there seemed to have been no formal cataloguing of all the items. Valentin Yakimenko felt that these missing frames contained important information and may have been “withheld” for that reason. The fact that these nine frames may have contained potentially important information will shortly be demonstrated because on the face of it, Zolotarev was taking pictures outside the tent that night (1/ 2 February 1959) right up to the last moment before whatever event caused the tragedy started.

Good question. The answer has to be that as a true professional he did and they kept them. Valentin Yakimenko's study of the group's negatives established that there are several (nine?) frames missing from that roll, the one producing the 30x. Maybe we only know of these pictures due to a failure to recognise their content.

For Nigel, If SZ was on a secret mission to photograph lights in the sky/BL, why didn't he turn around and snap off a few shots going down the slope? You know something that wouldn't need 30X magnification to find a spot on the negative.

To me this isn't the simplest of explanations. Too many variables to account for.

Why we're the 3 at the ravine dressed warmest?

No burns attributable to lightning strikes.

The victims panicked behavior to a natural phenomena.

No evidence of unexplained solid ice, craters, surface damage.

Why was the first to die, the 2 by the fire and so forth.

I know that i'm not an expert on this incident, but i do come from a part of the US that gets extremely cold. I know that hypothermia, even while drunk or high, will set in around 5 or ten minutes. That's with minus ten. My dad, being a dispatcher, answered some of these calls for those who died because of hypothermia. From what i can gather, they do not look anything like how these people's corpses look from the pictures. they are not blueish purple, common with frost bite or hypothermia, and for the most part, look like their skin was burn. The autopsys of some of the victims did show that some were exposed to radiation, which would cause thoses kinds of burns, but it didn't kill them. My best guess, after analysising the photos and diary entries and autopsy reports, is that they were victims of a science experiment gone wrong. the kind of experiment i can not determine, but i say it might have been something with nuclear radiation. The area was sparcely populated, making it perfect for this kind of stuff. That's my two sense in this.

@Lyndasez - it's the lightning bolt theory for the rav4 deaths. But it doesn't explain the key question why leave the tent like that AND have to stay away. So occams razor favours the BL theory which explains all.

But given the coverup here from Party HQ the favourite theory now has to be either military accident of highly sensitive weapon technology (neutron weapons might be a good avenue as there's a connection with tritium and beta emitters) or accidental encounter with a natural phenomena that was being looked at by the military. Whatever it was it had to be kept a state secret. This wasn't mansi hunters et al and if the state wanted them silenced they would have just disappeared. So it looks like a genuine accident that brought in the law agencies and then the state woke up to what was happening late in the day and ordered a coverup, confiscated the prosecutor's file ordering a dummy one to be created.

Tumanov:.

"The expert, the Revived interprets petty-hemorrhage as a spot of Vishnevsky. But at the same time, in the stomach of Dyatlov, "about 100 cubic cm of liquid mucous mass of a brownish reddish color", "the mucous membrane of the stomach is lilac-red, swollen," and "the lips are covered with gore".

Most likely, Djatlov had vomiting before his death with an admixture of blood. The source of bleeding is the gastric mucosa. What caused such a vomiting - poisoning or abnormality of the stomach - can not be established, since there is no case in the materials of the forensic chemical and histological examination." .


"5. In each of the nine acts, the Rebirth writes that pieces of internal organs are taken for forensic chemical research. But in the case materials there is not a single result of the conducted forensic chemical research, which should at least show the presence or absence of alcohol. But, a little nuance - to determine the alcohol take blood and urine. The revived one points out that parts of internal organs are taken for a forensic chemical study. This means that he directed the bodies for a forensic chemical study, not only for alcohol, but for the presence of poisons." .

"It is very alarming that the results of the forensic histological examination of the first five corpses are absent in the criminal case! And, as our expert suggested, it is possible that the results of that histology were intentionally concealed. Special attention: all 9 corpses take pieces of internal organs for forensic chemical examination. But there is not a single result in the case materials! And this gives us reason to suspect that chemical experts could find traces in bodies, for example, of some sort of combat poison." .


Poison, poison..... LOL.


And you thought I was WAY out in left field for suggesting a possible ergot poisoning.


"At the same time, there was no system to free the tent from snow. First they took out a few stale blankets, then buckets, a stove, two or THREE SACKS OF BISCUITS , shoes and other things. Things were stacked in backpacks, and dragged the tent to the search engine camp.
Naturally, after such manipulations on the tent, sections and torn pieces could appear." .

"The tent had an ice ax, an extra pair of skis. On the tent was a Chinese lantern in the unlit state. 9 backpacks, 9 pairs of skis were found in the tent, all of them were under the tent floor, 8 pairs of shoes, 3.5 pairs of boots, quilted jackets and MANY BISCUITS, half a sack of sugar, a large number of concentrates, cereals, soups, etc. , cocoa, axes, saw, cameras, diaries of students, documents and money." .

"Apparently the group was in the final stage of dressing and preparing for the night at the time of the incident. In the near half found a few crusts from the loin. There are rusks scattered all over the tent." .

YURI DOROSHENKO.

1) With such a transformation of the brain, it is impossible to see the swelling of the meninges! .
2) The presence of dark blood is not a sign of death from hypothermia, on the contrary, when supercooled, the blood is bright red due to the high content of oxyhemoglobin.
3) The resulted statement about a frostbite of fingers of extremities is not proved. There is nothing about this in the text of the study.
4) These circumstances (see General Comment, point 3) allow us to say that Doroshenko's death came as a result of hypothermia, only in a hypothetical form.



Yuri Krivonishenko.

1) It's strange, but Krivonischenko's craniocerebral trauma is only in the description of the act, and in conclusion about the reasons for his death there is none. But this damage was formed as a result of a blow (or blows) by a solid blunt object (or objects) in the right temporal and occipital areas of the head of Yuri. It can not be ruled out that the trauma could be obtained by falling from the standing position and by hitting the right temporal and occipital areas of the head against a hard blunt object. With such a trauma there could be hemorrhages in the brain, but the disintegration of the brain substance in Krivonishchenko destroyed all the informative signs.
2) Again the same rake. In the description of the act about the bite is written, and in the conclusion about death - not a word. But this one line gives reason to believe that Krivonishenko himself bitten himself by the finger, snatching a piece of leather. What does it mean? Perhaps Yuri tried to restrain the cry with severe pain. Perhaps, it was important that someone at that moment did not hear it.
3)I can assume that these "wounds" - cuts - were formed from a sharp object. Knife, glass, blade - anything.
4) It is doubtful that these abrasions were formed when the person fell face down on the snow. Then the nose and the superciliary arches would be buried, and there would be more scratches on the forehead. These abrasions of Krivonischenko from blows with a solid blunt object (or hitting against similar objects) at an acute angle.
5) Suppose, second-degree burns can be obtained by negligence, falling asleep at the fire. But third-degree burns are charring (!) Of soft tissues. To achieve this effect, you need to keep your feet in the fire for a long time. Get in a dream such a burn is impossible, burns already 1-st degree cause severe pain and awakening. In this case, third-degree burns could be formed if a person was in deep depression, for example, into intoxication (he did not feel pain or could not pull his leg off, - Auth.) Next to a strong fire.
6) Wounds on the nose are caused by animals and after the death of Yuri. Otherwise, there would be traces of bleeding.



IGOR DIATLOV.

1) At the autopsy, Igor Dyatlov's internal organs were in rotting state. Therefore, it is incorrect to assert that the internal organs are full of blood, as their structure is modified by postmortem processes. And the presence of dark blood is not a sign of death from hypothermia, on the contrary, when supercooled, the blood is bright red due to the high content of oxyhemoglobin.
2) Most likely, Djatlov had vomiting before his death with an admixture of blood. The source of bleeding is the gastric mucosa. What caused such a vomiting - poisoning or abnormality of the stomach - can not be established, since there is no case in the materials of the forensic chemical and histological examination.
3) But these damage from falling on the snow will not get. They could appear from circular compression in the ankle, for example as a result of binding by a rope.
4) Obviously, shortly before his death, Igor had to hit with a brush, clenched into a fist, over a hard object.



ZINAIDA KOLMOGOROVA.

1)And these injuries the girl received, most likely, from punching on a solid object. When falling on the snow with an emphasis on the fists, there would be other damage.
2) It was formed as a result of a blow by a solid blunt object, which had an elongated shape (stick, branch of a tree, etc.).



RUSTEM SLOBODIN.

1) With such a transformation of the brain, it is impossible to see edema of the meninges.
2) This trauma was formed as a result of a blow by a solid blunt object or from a blow to the head about such an object.
3) This assertion is unreasonable. There was blood under the dura mater. And this gives all grounds to say that Slobodin had a subdural hemorrhage (hemorrhage under the dura mater). According to available data it is impossible to exclude the onset of Slobodin's death as a result of craniocerebral trauma.
4) Traces of secretions of parched blood formed as a result of a trauma to the nose.
5) These abrasions could be formed as a result of the action of a solid blunt object, as well as the impact of a fist clenched on a solid object.



LYUDMILA DUBININA.

1) It should be noted that the fractures of the ribs were formed biphasic. But there is not a word about this in the act of the Renaissance. In the first phase, as a result of a blow to the right side of the thorax by a solid blunt object with a traumatic surface comparable in size to the length of the rib cage, there was a fracture of the right lobes II, III, IV, and V in the mid-axillary line. In the second phase, as a result of compression of the thoracic anteriorly backward with a hard blunt object, there was a fracture of the ribs II, III, IV, V on the right along the midclavicular line, and fracture of the II, III, IV, V, VI, VII ribs on the left along the midclavicular line. In the same phase, a hemorrhage in the region of the sternum was formed, and a bruise of the heart also occurred.
2)Neither during the throw, nor during the fall, marked damage to the chest by Dubinin could not have been formed. Similar injuries occur when rolling through the chest of a massive blunt object. For example, breast trauma, similar to those detected in Dubinina, is characteristic of a traffic accident - a car crossing the chest with the victim lying on his back.
3) Apparently, Lyudmila hit hard on a hard blunt object, or hit her with a similar object.
4) It is not clear that the expert considers them normal mobility, because in norm, with a whole bone, they are immovable in general. Why are they mobile (pathology of the structure, fracture, if fracture, then where) in the Act is not described. If the bone was actually broken, then it is impossible to tell whether this fracture is alive or not, since the Act does not describe the nature of the soft tissues surrounding the bone. The study of the hyoid bone was not carried out.



SEMYON ZOLOTARYOV.

1) Fractures in the ribs of Zolotarev have been intravital, as evidenced by the results of a histological examination (hemorrhages in the soft tissues - Auth.) And the presence of blood in the pleural cavity. The mechanism of damage formation is as follows: a blow, compression from the right to the left with a solid blunt object with a traumatic surface comparable in size to the chest of Zolotarev. To break thus the ribs, falling on a flat solid surface, is unreal.
2) Both Zolotarev and Dubinina had similar injuries posthumously, as a result of damage to the corpse by animals.



ALEXANDER KOLEVATOV.

1) This conclusion is groundless and in no way follows from the results of the forensic medical examination. There are no characteristic signs: no scarlet stains, no scarlet blood (just scarlet, not dark), Vishnevsky spots, and a number of microscopic signs.
2) The deformation of the neck in the text of the act itself is not described in the following. Not specified and the nature of deformation - congenital or acquired. What exactly is deformed and how. And according to the available description it is also impossible to determine - the deformation of the neck in the lifetime or posthumous.



NIKOLAI TIBO-BRINOLS.

1) This trauma was formed as a result of a blow to the right temporal region with a blunt solid object with a limited traumatic surface that does not exceed the dimensions of the lesion. Stone, iron, or something else that is much stronger than the bones of the skull.
2) This again formed as a result of the impact of a solid blunt object. Direction of impact from front to back towards the anteroideal surface of the right shoulder at an angle close to the straight.
3) In a histological study there is no record of the study of this bone. But there is such a record - "Rib - Between the bone beams blood in a state of putrefaction." This suggests that the Revived at the time of the autopsy revealed a fracture of the rib and took it for histological examination, which showed the intravital nature of the fracture. But in the text of the Act there is not a word about rib fractures in Thibault Brignoles.




GENERAL REMARKS.

All the inspection protocols for the location of the detection of corpses and forensic medical examinations are made, roughly speaking, hackneyed:.

1. The examination was conducted without the participation of a physician-specialist in the field of forensic medicine, which is a violation of the procedure for examining corpses at the place of their detection. The presence and localization of cadaveric spots and the state of the skin in general are not described, the visible lesions on the body are only partially described. Clothes and the position of corpses are described very superficially.

2. Forensic shooting of the scene of the incident was not carried out, the photos are not very informative, closer to the artistic shooting than to the forensic photography.

3. The conclusions of the first five acts of forensic examination were written as a photocopy:.

"... Doroshenko's death (or Krivonischenko, Kolmogorova , Dyatlova, Slobodina) was caused by low temperature, as evidenced by edema of the meninges, a sharp fullness of the internal organs, an overflow of the dark blood of the heart cavities, the presence of Vishnevsky spots on the stomach mucosa, frostbite fingers of the extremities ... ".

4. In each of the nine acts, the expert indicates that the pieces of internal organs are taken for histological examination, but the results in the criminal case are only in the last four - Thibo-Brignol NV, Kolevatova AS, Zolotareva AA and Dubinina LA It can be assumed that the histology of the first five corpses was deliberately hidden, since it was clearly more informative than the corpses found two months later.

5. In each of the nine acts, the Rebirth writes that pieces of internal organs are taken for forensic chemical research. But in the case materials there is not a single result of the conducted forensic chemical research, which should at least show the presence or absence of alcohol. But, a little nuance - to determine the alcohol take blood and urine. The revived one points out that parts of internal organs are taken for a forensic chemical study. This means that he directed the bodies for a forensic chemical study, not only for alcohol, but for the presence of poisons.

6. And, finally, the arrangement of cadaveric spots does not coincide with the position of some corpses at the time of their detection. Rustem Slobodin and Yuri Doroshenko found face down, and the cadaver spots the expert described on the back surface of the trunk. The same description is also given by Zinaida Kolmogorova, who, as indicated in the examination report, found lying on her side.

FROM AUTHORS:.

We thank our expert Eduard Tumanov for the work done. And now, in a clearer picture of the injuries of the woodpeckers, we can safely assume that a fight has occurred on the pass. With poachers? Or with someone else, or ... we spread our hands. At the same time, strong rib fractures in Dubinina and Zolotarev indicate that such injuries do not get in fights. That is, according to the cleavages of the ribs you can see that they did not kick a man, there ... with boots, but only one blow and some great object were dealt. What would that mean?

It is very alarming that the results of the forensic histological examination of the first five corpses are absent in the criminal case! And, as our expert suggested, it is possible that the results of that histology were intentionally concealed. Special attention: all 9 corpses take pieces of internal organs for forensic chemical examination. But there is not a single result in the case materials! And this gives us reason to suspect that chemical experts could find traces in bodies, for example, of some sort of combat poison.

We are going to continue the investigation further and we will be glad to new specialists who can help us on this topic.

NICOLAI, POSSIBLE, BEAT BY HEAD AND BY RIBS.

NIKOLAI TIBO-BRINOLS.

The certificate of forensic medical expert Revived from May 9, 1959:.

"... In the right temple, there is a distinct hemorrhage in the right temporal muscle ... a depressed fracture of the right temporal parietal region is determined in a 9 x 7 cm area with a defect in bone tissue and a temporal bone 3 x 3.5 x 2 cm in size. the area of ??the bone is pressed into the cavity of the skull and is located on the dura mater ... in the middle cranium of the pit a multifaceted fracture of the right temporal bone with a divergence of cracks was found ... ».

Tumanov:.

This trauma was formed as a result of a blow to the right temporal region with a blunt solid object with a limited traumatic surface that does not exceed the dimensions of the lesion. Stone, iron, or something else that is much stronger than the bones of the skull.

The certificate of forensic medical expert Revived from May 9, 1959:.

Now LYUDMILA DUBININA.

The certificate of forensic medical expert Revived from May 9, 1959:.

" Dubinin 's death came as a result of a large hemorrhage to the right ventricle of the heart, multiple bilateral fracture of the ribs, lethal internal bleeding into the chest cavity.".

Tumanov:.

It should be noted that the fractures of the ribs were formed biphasic. But there is not a word about this in the act of the Renaissance. In the first phase, as a result of a blow to the right side of the thorax by a solid blunt object with a traumatic surface comparable in size to the length of the rib cage, there was a fracture of the right lobes II, III, IV, and V in the mid-axillary line.

In the second phase, as a result of compression of the thoracic anteriorly backward with a hard blunt object, there was a fracture of the ribs II, III, IV, V on the right along the midclavicular line, and fracture of the II, III, IV, V, VI, VII ribs on the left along the midclavicular line. In the same phase, a hemorrhage in the region of the sternum was formed, and a bruise of the heart also occurred.

The certificate of forensic medical expert Revived from May 9, 1959:.

"... in the pleural cavities contained up to one and a half liters of liquid dark blood.".

Tumanov:.

This sign indicates a bilateral rupture of the lungs, but the act does not say a word about it. Yes, and the statement of the expert should be taken critically, since after the onset of death before the moment of forensic medical examination 3 (!) Months passed, and as a result of rotting tissues in the pleural cavities accumulated exudate (putrefactive fluid - Auth.), Which mingled with broken blood.

The certificate of forensic medical expert Revived from May 9, 1959:.

"... are the result of the impact of a large force, followed by the fall, throw or bruise of the chest area by Dubinina.".

Tumanov:.

Neither during the throw, nor during the fall, marked damage to the chest by Dubinin could not have been formed. Similar injuries occur when rolling through the chest of a massive blunt object. For example, breast trauma, similar to those detected in Dubinina, is characteristic of a traffic accident - a car crossing the chest with the victim lying on his back.

Under the dura mater, up to 75 cc was kept. cm, bloody fluid, mild cloudy, red-greenish color.

According to available data it is impossible to exclude the onset of Slobodin's death as a result of craniocerebral trauma.

Been here, done that, got the Tshirt :-
The main sign of death from hypothermia is the presence of the so-called ‘Vishnevsky spots’, described in 1895 by the coroner S.M. Vishnevsky. These spots are found on the gastric mucosa (stomach membrane) in about seventy-five percent of deaths from low temperatures. According to Vozrozhdenny, all members of the Dyatlov group had Vishnevsky spots. Tumanov questions the possibility of identifying these spots in the last four bodies due to the state of their deep decay; and even for the first five corpses, which were found in a much more preserved condition, it is difficult to give a clear hypothermia diagnosis based on this and other characteristic features of the condition. Tumanov also doubts the possibility of identifying oedema of the brain – one more characteristic of hypothermia. The brain matter in the corpses was ‘a greenish red, jelly-like substance. The grey matter can hardly be distinguished from the white matter. Brain ventricle contours are indistinguishable. The cerebellum matter pattern is poorly distinguished.’ It was improper defrosting that made it impossible to diagnose oedema of the brain. Still Vozrozhdenny cited it in order to conclude that freezing was the cause of death. He also mentioned cardiac cavities full of liquid dark blood, which cannot qualify as a sign of death from hypothermia because the blood of frozen people is bright red due to high concentrations of oxyhemoglobin. Finally, neither third nor fourth degree frostbite of fingers or toes was observed. Krivonischenko’s report reads ‘terminal phalanx is dry and dark brown in colour’. According to modern experts, these are the signs of post mortem freezing of the body. Five of the group members had facial abrasions. Small abrasions often occur when an exhausted person is crawling in frozen conditions when he or she can injure the skin by rubbing against firm snow or ice. The location of these on the frontal parts of the bodies (faces and hands) excludes possible compression with snow (like in an avalanche). Had this been the case, they would have been observed all over the body evenly. The bodies were not found in the classic foetal position supposedly assumed by a person freezing to death. Doroshenko and Krivonischenko were even found in a pose similar to that of sunbathing on a beach. In fact, the foetal position is found in less than 30% of all cases of death by freezing, and simply suggests that the person still felt cold when he or she died. Dyatlov’s pose is closer to this classical position. Tumanov suggests that Dyatlov was the only one on the slope who really died by hypothermia.

Now with Igor Dyatlov! .



IGOR DIATLOV WAS VOMITING THE BLOOD.

IGOR DIATLOV (found on the slope of Mount Holatchahl).

The certificate of forensic medical expert of the Revived from March 4, 1959:.

"... a sharp fullness of the internal organs, an overflow of the dark cavities in the cavities of the heart ...".

Tumanov:.

At the autopsy, Igor Dyatlov's internal organs were in rotting state. Therefore, it is incorrect to assert that the internal organs are full of blood, as their structure is modified by postmortem processes. And the presence of dark blood is not a sign of death from hypothermia, on the contrary, when supercooled, the blood is bright red due to the high content of oxyhemoglobin.

The certificate of forensic medical expert of the Revived from March 4, 1959:.

"... on the upper surface of the folds of the stomach on the mucosa is a large number of small hemorrhages, spots Vishnevsky ...".

Tumanov:.

The expert, the Revived interprets petty-hemorrhage as a spot of Vishnevsky. But at the same time, in the stomach of Dyatlov, "about 100 cubic cm of liquid mucous mass of a brownish reddish color", "the mucous membrane of the stomach is lilac-red, swollen," and "the lips are covered with gore".

Most likely, Djatlov had vomiting before his death with an admixture of blood. The source of bleeding is the gastric mucosa. What caused such a vomiting - poisoning or abnormality of the stomach - can not be established, since there is no case in the materials of the forensic chemical and histological examination.

The certificate of forensic medical expert of the Revived from March 4, 1959:.

"... in the region of the forehead on the frontal tubercles, small abrasions are dark red, in the region of the left superciliary arena a brownish-red abrasion, parchment density rises above the surface of the skin, on the upper eyelids small brown-red abrasions, on the nose and tip of the nose - red color of parchment density, 2 x 1.5 cm in size, in the area of ??both cheekbones, abrasions of reddish-brown color under a dry crust 3 x 1.5 x 1 cm, 3 x 0.5 cm, on the left, and on the right small abrasions . In the region of the left cheek, small abrasions are dark brown in parchment density. In the area of ??the knee joints on the right and on the left, grazes of dark red color, 1 x 0.5 cm in size and 0.5 by 0.5 cm in parchment density without hemorrhage into the underlying tissues ... ".

Tumanov :.

Igor could get these bruises when he fell on the snow.

The certificate of forensic medical expert of the Revived from March 4, 1959:.

"... In the region of the left ankle joint on the anterior lateral and posterior surfaces, in the areas of both ankles bruised-red abrasions are impressed over the surface of the skin, and also at the skin level, measuring 1 x 0.5 cm, up to 3 x 2; 5 cm, with a hemorrhage into the underlying soft tissues. In the area of ??abrasions one cut is visible, in the lower third of the right shin the skin is covered by 4 x 2 cm ... ".

Tumanov:.

But these damage from falling on the snow will not get. They could appear from circular compression in the ankle, for example as a result of binding by a rope.

The certificate of forensic medical expert of the Revived from March 4, 1959:.

"... In the region of the metacarpophalangeal articulations and interphalangeal articulations, soft lacquer-lilac, parchment-dense tissues are covered with dry, crusty crusts with hemorrhage into the underlying tissues. The left brush is a brown-lilac color with brown-red color, parchment density, 1 by 0.5 cm in size, and 2 by 0.2 cm. The skin is in the area of ??the back surface of the 2nd 4th finger ... ".

Tumanov:.

Obviously, shortly before his death, Igor had to hit with a brush, clenched into a fist, over a hard object.

Thank to the fine interweb detection abilities of KMM, we have a recent analysis of the criminal case, studied by forensic expert Eduard Tumanov! Tumanov is a highly regarded modern Russian forensic expert.

Now with Yuri Krivonishenko!.

Yuri Krivonishenko (found next to Doroshenko).

The certificate of forensic medical expert of the Revived from March 4, 1959:.

"... in the right temporal region and the occipital region a diffuse hemorrhage with impregnation of the right temporal muscle ...".

Tumanov:.

It's strange, but Krivonischenko's craniocerebral trauma is only in the description of the act, and in conclusion about the reasons for his death there is none. But this damage was formed as a result of a blow (or blows) by a solid blunt object (or objects) in the right temporal and occipital areas of the head of Yuri. It can not be ruled out that the trauma could be obtained by falling from the standing position and by hitting the right temporal and occipital areas of the head against a hard blunt object. With such a trauma there could be hemorrhages in the brain, but the disintegration of the brain substance in Krivonishchenko destroyed all the informative signs.

The certificate of forensic medical expert of the Revived from March 4, 1959:.

"... on the middle phalanx of the middle finger (right hand, - Auth.), The epidermal defect in shape and size coincides with that found in the oral cavity ...".

Tumanov:.

Again the same rake. In the description of the act about the bite is written, and in the conclusion about death - not a word. But this one line gives reason to believe that Krivonishenko himself bitten himself by the finger, snatching a piece of leather. What does it mean? Perhaps Yuri tried to restrain the cry with severe pain. Perhaps, it was important that someone at that moment did not hear it.

The certificate of forensic medical expert of the Revived from March 4, 1959:.

"... On the inner surface of the upper third of the left thigh, there are three dermal wounds of a linear shape with even margins as deep as 0.3 cm with sharp angles of 1.5 to 0.4 cm ...".

Tumanov:.

I can assume that these "wounds" - cuts - were formed from a sharp object. Knife, glass, blade - anything.

The certificate of forensic medical expert of the Revived from March 4, 1959:.

"... In the middle part of the forehead, a section of a 0.3-by-0.3 cm round-shaped precipitation is of a brownish-red color of parchment density. ... In the left temporal region, two abrasions of a brownish-red color of parchment density, a size of 1.2 to 0.3 cm and 1 cm to 0.2 cm ... ".

Tumanov:.

It is doubtful that these abrasions were formed when the person fell face down on the snow. Then the nose and the superciliary arches would be buried, and there would be more scratches on the forehead. These abrasions of Krivonischenko from blows with a solid blunt object (or hitting against similar objects) at an acute angle.

The certificate of forensic medical expert of the Revived from March 4, 1959:.

"Burns of the left thigh and shin 2-3 degrees (near the fire)".

Tumanov:.

Suppose, second-degree burns can be obtained by negligence, falling asleep at the fire. But third-degree burns are charring (!) Of soft tissues. To achieve this effect, you need to keep your feet in the fire for a long time. Get in a dream such a burn is impossible, burns already 1-st degree cause severe pain and awakening. In this case, third-degree burns could be formed if a person was in deep depression, for example, into intoxication (he did not feel pain or could not pull his leg off, - Auth.) Next to a strong fire.

The certificate of forensic medical expert of the Revived from March 4, 1959:.

"... In the middle third of the nose a brown-red abrasion, parchment density, passing into the wound in the tip of the nose and wings with a defect of soft tissues measuring 1.8 x 2 cm, the bottom of the wound is the cartilage of the nasal septum, right nasal passage ...".

Tumanov:.

Wounds on the nose are caused by animals and after the death of Yuri. Otherwise, there would be traces of bleeding.

Thank to the fine interweb detection abilities of KMM, we have a recent analysis of the criminal case, studied by forensic expert Eduard Tumanov! Tumanov is a highly regarded modern Russian forensic expert.

Lets start with Yuri Doroshenko!

It is impossible to confirm that two people were frozen at the bonfire

YURI DOROSHENKO (found under the cedar near the remains of the fire)

The certificate of forensic medical expert of the Revived from March 4, 1959:

"... Doroshenko's death came as a result of exposure to low temperature, ... as evidenced by edema of the meninges, a sharp plethora of internal organs, a dark liquid overflowing the heart cavities, the presence of Vishnevsky spots on the stomach mucosa, bladder overflow, frostbite of the limbs and burn II - III degrees around the fire. " .

Tumanov: .

Given the putrefaction of the corpse, it is highly doubtful that a forensic expert could see all of the above signs at the autopsy. Thus, the Revived, in support of the diagnosis, writes - "... as evidenced by the swelling of the meninges ..." at the same time, at the autopsy reports - "... The substance of the brain is a mass of a jelly-like reddish-green color. Gray matter of the brain is hardly distinguishable from white matter. The contours of the lateral ventricles of the brain are hardly distinguishable ... ".

With such a transformation of the brain, it is impossible to see the swelling of the meninges! .

The presence of dark blood is not a sign of death from hypothermia, on the contrary, when supercooled, the blood is bright red due to the high content of oxyhemoglobin.

The resulted statement about a frostbite of fingers of extremities is not proved. There is nothing about this in the text of the study.

These circumstances (see General Comment, point 3) allow us to say that Doroshenko's death came as a result of hypothermia, only in a hypothetical form.

Nothing to see here.... move along now (pat on the head).

"But, there was one instance that put us on the alert. When the last bodies were found later in May, an order came to collect all items found at the pass and send them for radiological examination".
The first bodies showed us something your not allowed to know about which is why Im ordering you to test for radiation.

"Also, all people who had been in contact with the things found in the tent and nearby were ordered to undergo body counting."
While your at it... test all these ground peasants that were at the tent and touched crap also.

" So it was done, but neither a reassuring, nor any other results were made known to us. And again, the fact of some secret military tests being held was coming to mind." .
This is way above your paygrade... go look for some fireballs or something.

"We applied with a letter signed by the Oblast Prosecutor to either the Prosecutor General of the USSR or the Federal – I don’t remember exactly now – asking to explain what really we were investigating into? And how it was related to radiation? Could it be so that even the top commandant of the Urals Military District knew nothing of any tests of armaments held there? In response to our letter, Deputy Prosecutor General, comrade Urakov came to meet with us and gave orders that we were to all tell anyone who asked that the tourists’ death was an accident".
Listen up peasant... Not only am I NOT going to answer your question, but I came all the way down here to personally tell you to shut your big fat mouth about radiation and tell everyone it was an "accident".

"Urakov evaded all our direct questions about tests of armaments. I mean, he did not deny this version, but simply avoided direct answers." .
Pft.... this is on a need to know basis and your not in the loop.

"What’s more, Urakov took absolutely no interest in the course of our investigation, as if the picture of the scene was absolutely clear to him already. He, however, took the case away with him." .
We know something that you dont, so we are yanking the rug out from under you.

"With that, our investigation came to an end. Just imagine: at the very height of the investigation, when dead bodies with strange injuries have just been found, the case is being taken away!" .
CLEAR EVIDENCE OF A COVERUP

Nigel Evans 25-09-2017 20:23 (GMT)
@LC - the superior admitted that they had no solution to the DPI his point was that the investigation was removed from them by Central office unsolved with orders for them to fabricate a dummy report as an "accident" and tough it out with parents of the deceased. So that's well worth remembering when shouting about official case files. Ivanov restated his fireball theory many years later, so it's reasonable to assume it was his genuine view and his best guess.

The interview with Evgeny Okishev shows that when the last four bodies were finally found, it was apparent that something very unusual had happened. However, the question must be asked – did they know anything before the arrival of Deputy Prosecutor General Urakov from Moscow? He (Okishev) mentions the fact that Klinov was present at the autopsies of the first five bodies in Ivdel and points out that this was highly unusual, particularly as Ivdel is 400 miles away from Sverdlovsk (644km). Why would Klinov have felt the need to go up there while the autopsies were being carried out, unless he had previous knowledge of some kind? Whilst Okishev was being fairly open in his interview with the Komsomolskaya Pravda journalists and his discussion with Leonid Proshkin, Proshkin himself points out that he felt Okishev was holding something back. In particular he mentioned the lack of a case number which supports the view that the real case file is elsewhere and that the one for public consumption is just a dummy as has long been suspected by many observers of the Dyatlov story.

Reading "Journey to Dyatlov Pass" and have found this :-

There is one person who rarely crops up in accounts of the Dyatlov tragedy. He held a very senior position in the investigation and remarkably at the time of writing (2016), he is still alive and lives in Moldova. In effect, he was also Lev Ivanov’s boss during the investigation. In 2013 he was 94 years old and gave an interview to two journalists from the Komsomolskaya Pravda regarding the Dyatlov tragedy. He remembered the case very well and he found it quite mysterious. In 1959, Evgeny Fyodorovich Okishev was Deputy Head of the Investigative Department of the Sverdlovsk Oblast Prosecution Office and was directly responsible for the supervision of the case including Lev Ivanov’s handling of it (Ivanov was subordinate to Evgeny Okishev and had replaced Vasily Tempalov, the Ivdel Prosecutor, very early in the investigation). His interview was as follows (Interviewers questions and comments are in bold italics, Okishev’s responses are in ordinary type):

This is an interesting bit :-
Q. - Why had the military become involved in the search?
A. EO - To say the truth, this was done on our request. And there were reasons for that. Shortly before that we met with a worker of one of the prison camps in the North Urals. He described strange flashes of light which he and his wife saw late that evening on their way home from the cinema. The light came from the direction of the supposed accident with the tourists. We also received evidence from other local residents, and all of them spoke about a similar phenomenon, all testimonies were entered on our records of interrogation. We got a suspicion of existence of a military test field somewhere around, could that be true? Could flashes be caused by a failed rocket launch that had killed the tourists?

Q. - But, again, there is no such record in the criminal case! So, what happened then?
A. - EO - A group of the military under the command, if I am not mistaken, of Colonel Artyukov, arrived. I talked to him, and he convinced me that no such facilities were nearby and no possibility of missile launches. But, there was one instance that put us on the alert. When the last bodies were found later in May, an order came to collect all items found at the pass and send them for radiological examination. Also, all people who had been in contact with the things found in the tent and nearby were ordered to undergo body counting. So it was done, but neither a reassuring, nor any other results were made known to us. And again, the fact of some secret military tests being held was coming to mind. We applied with a letter signed by the Oblast Prosecutor to either the Prosecutor General of the USSR or the Federal – I don’t remember exactly now – asking to explain what really we were investigating into? And how it was related to radiation? Could it be so that even the top commandant of the Urals Military District knew nothing of any tests of armaments held there? In response to our letter, Deputy Prosecutor General, comrade Urakov came to meet with us and gave orders that we were to all tell anyone who asked that the tourists’ death was an accident. Urakov evaded all our direct questions about tests of armaments. I mean, he did not deny this version, but simply avoided direct answers. What’s more, Urakov took absolutely no interest in the course of our investigation, as if the picture of the scene was absolutely clear to him already. He, however, took the case away with him.

We told him that if the top officials discard the military incident version, then all is left to us is to consider other possible versions. He found our considerations convincing, and signed the letter. But, again, the reaction from Moscow was such that our suppositions of a military involvement had been neither confirmed nor disproved...

Then there's a further interview with EO and a defence lawyer, Leonid Proshkin who had studied the case.

It goes on to say that a further site inspection once the snows had melted as abandoned because they couldn't get a permit... Central office refusing the criminal investigation team further access to the site. Central party figures present at the five autopsies was highly unusual.

Central office basically closed the case and instructed EO and Ivanov to state it was an accident and "rig" the report to fit that. EO states how good Ivanov was as an investigator describing him as meticulous and very thorough. He says they found it quite stressfull dealing with the parents who wanted answers but they had to follow orders.

Missing documentation is noted, all the personel on the case would be assigned via official orders but this is missing.

EO thinks the deaths are connected with rocket testing.

They took SZs film processed it, meaning subjected it to chemicals to make it insensitive to light, they have an negative, reverse image ...they place that on a contact sheet expose it to light which places a positive image on the sheet, when chemically developed the image appears.

Think they'd say photo or contact if this were true, not negative.

"on the {{negatives}}were small black dots and some very small pale dots. To the human eye, these dots could not be identified. These dots were nothing like the much larger frame of the bright orb."

The black dots could be light, hard to say they're clearly examining a compromised negative. They're playin you....we're lookin for black orbs on a negative.
Nigel Evans 24-09-2017 22:47 (GMT)
The strips were given a brief initial examination. The examination showed that all the shots from the ten frame strip with Zolotarev’s name scratched on it were taken at night. At the time period the photos were taken, there was no visible moon. It did not appear until well after midnight and was waning (it was on its last quarter with 42% visibility and 23 days into its 29 day cycle before the new moon). A brief first look showed nothing unusual. The light was so low that the edges of each frame could not be seen. What could be seen on the negatives were small black dots and some very small pale dots. To the human eye, these dots could not be identified. These dots were nothing like the much larger frame of the bright orb. The presence of the ten frames taken one after another showed that something in the night sky had attracted Zolotarev’s attention and he took picture after picture of it. Once this ten frame strip was scanned and examined under a powerful microscope, the edges of the frames could be clearly seen. Under magnification the frames showed fine bright and dull dots with lines which resembled the tracks of signal flares.

Yes, the film was over exposed due to the elements, meaning it's garbage. Same would happen if you took photos with a roll of film then unraveled the film in a lit area or swished it in water. Those exposures you took are now toast!

So, you have no evidence of what happened to DP group. Just some hearsay stuff about lights seen in sky elsewhere !

I hate to be the one that reminds you of this, but other photos shown as SZs are now debunked. They are negatives which is evident by the film gear slots and thus.... Your little blotches at 30x magnification are would actually be black spots if developed. To add insult to injury, they have been proven to reside outside of the viewable rectangle area where the pictures exposure takes place.

@KMM - "your BL photo got shot down"
No, the theory that SZ had a secret camera and the three heads was an original non processed photo got shot down (by my investigation and no one elses ....).
But the evidence remains, photos of lights from three cameras. Semyon took a lot of shots, say 10 which at 30x zoom show distinct similarities to eye witness reports. But granted the photographic evidence is not conclusive and open to interpretation.
Not so the eye witness reports.

As an aside i've just read this, the spare valenki must have been Rustems, shows the immediacy of their exit from the tent :-

By the entrance was a furnace; baskets; water flasks, one of which was filled with alcohol; a saw; and an axe.Deeper inside were the cameras. Further back was a bag with maps and documents, Dyatlov’s camera, a can containing money, Kolmogorova’s diary and windbreakers belonging to Dyatlov and Kolevatov. In the corner was a bag of rusks and another bag containing breakfast cereal. Next to them was a pair of boots. The other six pairs of boots were at the opposite side of the tent. In the middle of the tent were three pairs of valenki and one single one. Next to the rusks there was a log taken from the place of the previous camp. Above all, there was a ski pole, scored at several places.

@LC - Some people also wonder about something else apparently found in the labaz: Dyatlov’s boots. How could he have skied if he wasn’t wearing his boots? Yudin’s answer was that, with the semi-rigid ‘soldiers’ mount’ (or bracing) that strapped over the top of the footwear, it was possible to ski in valenki and, moreover, Krivonischenko, for one, preferred to ski in these felt boots.

They determined the rav4 dead very early when they could have very well been alive for all they knew as the bodies had not been found.

Basically shithead Ivanov at the time 2yuris, Igor, Rustem, and Zina were just found... declared the rav4 dead. Nigel will tell you its perfectly acceptable, but in reality it shows his utter neglection of duty and pure incompetence.

On tonight's episode of "WHAT THE BL GESTAPO DOES NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW"

We take a look at the body if Igor Dyatlov. Why might you ask?? Because its small potatoes!!! .


"STUDIES OF THE CITIZEN DYATLOV Igor Alekseevich, 23 years old on March 4, 1959".

"The cuffs are buttoned. In a breast pocket there was a packing "streptotsid" with 4 tablets".
Note: Hmmmmm Guess he has a habit of carrying this around in case of emergencies?

"in the forehead area on the frontal tubercles, small abrasions of a dark red color".
NOTE: Abrasion on the forehead. You can see the severity of the 'small' abrasion below. Looks to me like a half dollar size of his scalp is pealed back! Unless.... they are talking about other abrasions of the forehead, which would make this pictured wound UNDOCUMENTED! http://image.ibb.co/c9ONzQ/PkTFfHW2.jpg

"in the region of the left brow, a brown-red abrasion, parchment density rises above the surface of the skin"
NOTE: Abrasion left eyebrow, skin of affected area is swollen, or its an open cut with raised edges. You decide.

"small brown abrasions on the upper eyelids".
NOTE: Self explanatory.

"on the dorsum of the nose and the tip of the site of the brownish-red color amentnoy density, dimensions 2 x 1.5 cm in both chines abrasion brown-red color under dry crust 3 x 1.5 x 1 cm, 3 x 0.5 cm, -.. the left and right small abrasions".
NOTES: I dunno but it sounds like several abrasions of the nose.

"Lips of cyanotic-lilac color, covered with gore".
NOTE: Blood, pus, spit.... gore! .

"On the upper jaw teeth white, smooth, rare, on the lower jaw there is no central incisor without a change in the mucous gum"
NOTE: From what I understand, he was already missing this tooth. However, this reads as if the gum has not 'changed', or possibly 'recovered'. Knocked out tooth or prior extraction... You decide.

"In the area of ??the knee joints on the right and on the left, grazes of dark red color, measuring 1 x 0.5 cm. 0.5 to 0.5 cm of parchment density without hemorrhage into the underlying tissues".
NOTE: I would kinda expect these crawling around and whatnot.

"In the region of the left ankle sushutava on the anterior lateral and posterior surfaces, in areas of both ankles bruise-red abrasions, colors pressed over the surface of the skin, as well as on ???? skin, size 1 x 0.5 cm, up to 3 x 2, 5 cm, with a hemorrhage into the underlying soft tissue. "
NOTE: Back and front of both ankles bruised with abrasions and hemorrhaging. Was he dragged or something? Strung upside down? Was he bound at the ankles and relocated? Was his hands bound aswell? His frozen position is strange to me at best.
http://image.ibb.co/dXT865/dyatloff_igor.jpg .
The murder theorist are going to rake Nigel over the coals with this on imo.

"on the outer side in the lower third of the right forearm, on the palmar surface, small abrasions of dark red color of parchment density".
Note: Outside of the right forearm abrasions.

"The rear of the right hand is lilac-gray in color. In the region of the metacarpophalangeal articulations and between the phalangeal joints, soft lacquer-lilac, parchment-dense tissues are covered with dry, crusty crusts with hemorrhage into the underlying tissues".
Note: Right back of hand is discolored, and the metacarpophalangeal articulations (knuckle joints) are dry and crusty with bleeding into the underlying tissue of the hand. These are the knuckles closest to the body of the hand...... the ones effected when punching something, or someone.


"In the region of the palmar surface of the 2nd 5th finger, the cutaneous wound of an irregularly linear shape with even edges located transversely to the long finger of the fingers, wounds of a surface depth of 0.1 (or 0.2 - approx.) See Bones and cartilages of the skeleton at feeling whole".
NOTE: Somewhere on the left hand middle AND ring finger cutaneous (of the skin) wound /wounds that are literally busted open down to the bone.

OK Nigel, The windward side of the tent was ripped open by powerful wind. inflating the tent and filling it with blowing snow. It is bouncing up and down in the wind threatening to blow down the slope. someone takes a knife and slits the other side to let some wind out and maybe create an exit. The group has panicked (remember it happens with BL ) thinking they are going to be launched in the air and down the slope. so they leave, get blown around on the rocks and ice.

SZ was maxed out, he had quilted burki.

"Men wore a special kind of valenki called burki. The bottom looked like leather boots, but upper part was made of white felt, framed with dark leather strips to protect from moisture and to contrast white felt. In Soviet times burki were worn by military officers, and heads of collective farms."

Hence, no 9th track, the warm barefeet left tracks (ice crust) till they cooled...

They light a fire at the cedar, seemingly unable to return to the tent and make use of a den 70m away. (the den was found because of a trail of branch fragments used to construct the seats leading into the ravine snow, so they did use it even if they didn't construct it).

Your last post is precisely what I am talking about. Sad

"They walk to the cedar with no sign of any other tracks, leaving a flashlight at a position suggesting a beacon to assist the return." .
#1IIRC there wasn't any footprints to count or tracks in the treeline and into the ravine to observe, so in reality there could have been 300 people walking around down there and nobody would have ever known it.
#2 Could have been a potty light also. WE DONT KNOW

"They light a fire at the cedar, seemingly unable to return to the tent and make use of a den 70m away. (the den was found because of a trail of branch fragments used to construct the seats"
#1 Its a long ways back up there to a destroyed tent, or was it destroyed? WE DONT KNOW
#2 Bingo... They did NOT find the den (if there was a den) because of foot tracks. how many people were in the treeline/ravine? WE DONT KNOW


"Injuries ambiguous or otherwise, slits internal or external etc etc are small potatoes compared to what caused the above."
#1 When you dont know what the above answers are (you may think you do, but you dont)... better start looking at smaller potatoes!
#2 I wouldnt expect you to look for indications of not BL probabilities.... your not going to change now. #
#3 Imagine that.... someone you know found dead. Would you expect all the potatoes to be looked at especially their physical injuries? Unbelievable


"Of course the BL theory knocks these questions down like skittles."
Incorrect sir as your questions are bias and relatively invalid to begin with. This is exactly the arrogance I speak of, and the narrow mindedness that gets all of us no where.


"My problem with your thinking is that you're ignoring the big questions and trying reverse engineer a solution by proving that the injury profile shows human violence when an experienced policemen didn't see that. It's your mission to find a non BL solution at all costs, i'm just sitting at the top of the hill enjoying the view and throwing rocks at you, no offence :@)"

#1 laff... Nigel, Cmon man..... Your mad because Its to show all readers your unwillingness to accept critical information and otherwise attempt to discard it because it is non conforming to your narrative.

#2 Fighting within themselves in of itself does not eradicate your BL theory. How do you know a fight didnt ensue after having been forced to the treeline by a fireball? Why would that make/break your theory?

@LC - "Why does this 'have' to be ALL BL or nothing for you? Help me to understand this reasoning. "

It doesn't. It's just that there isn't anything else that comes close. Lets trot through the key points yet again.

They leave the tent in their socks. No felt boots or gloves.
They walk to the cedar with no sign of any other tracks, leaving a flashlight at a position suggesting a beacon to assist the return.
They light a fire at the cedar, seemingly unable to return to the tent and make use of a den 70m away. (the den was found because of a trail of branch fragments used to construct the seats leading into the ravine snow, so they did use it even if they didn't construct it).
Pathologist talks of ravine injuries requiring superhuman force suggesting energy similar to a car accident or a bomb.

So those four lines are the BIG issues to solve. Injuries ambiguous or otherwise, slits internal or external etc etc are small potatoes compared to what caused the above.

That's the problem to be solved. Of course the BL theory knocks these questions down like skittles. Then there's the supporting info, eye witness accounts and photographs from three cameras (granted there's room for interpretation) of light phenomena. Ok burnt trees and dead birds are just curiosities.

My problem with your thinking is that you're ignoring the big questions and trying reverse engineer a solution by proving that the injury profile shows human violence when an experienced policemen didn't see that.

Thibi had a jacket, pants, socks, felt boots, and a fracture at the base of his skull

SZ had fur hat, jacket, sweaters, black quilted Burki=boots, socks, scarf, overalls, coveralls which continued folded newspaper, ski pants with more bits of newspaper, compressed nose, compressed chest on one side. <--- he was prepared!

I'm not buying this triage set up by Igor, if he was so smart everyone would've been together, an they'd had fashioned torches, if this occurred in the dead of night, not buying this....by the light of the silvery ball lighting thing...

Bwahahaha. Nigel pissin people of as usual.

Dont worry KMM, he pulled the same "if you bothered to read my 857 posts, you would know Im right" BS with me also.

@Nigel.
"you wouldn't look foolish"
I sure dont think kmm looks foolish, and when you start talking like your superior to everyone... it kinda turns people away from the BL theory even more then already stated. I wish you would have taken my advice and keep it simple. Something like... 'BL may possible be the reason why they left the tent and didnt return. BL might have been why they climbed the tree. It also may have come down the slope and injured some and killed others bla bla'....

But when you start talking about all this crap which has zero basis in fact as if it were indeed fact, and then expect other folks to explain their theory/idea to fit 'your' unsubstantiated 'facts', and then insult them...... it irritates the shit outta people and only degrades the quality of discussion. Lord knows I can go full-retard, but I do not get there on my own (like john). I wish it were as easy to point to x,y, and z as definitive proof, but when you start trying to force others to believe in burnt tree tops, hot-spots, secret KGB BL photo mission, james Bond camera, specs of crap out of frame with a 300X zoom, three heads BS thats actually part a zoomed part of another know exposure entirely...... on and on and on.... with no real tangible resources to verify them... It gets old man. just sayin. Happy Its a matter of so many 'ifs' having to galactically align, and if you hold your mouth just right you can see it working.

Even if the injuries I have been listing are 1% accurate. There is more to this story that you are simply not willing to even entertain. Thats fine, we have all heard you clearly state your position, but what we dont need is to be bullied or otherwise intimidated and ridiculed for thinking drastically different then you. Whos right? Probably nobody and/or it may be (as I stated before) a combination of unfortunate events.

Side note:
You know Nigel, having a rav4 not be killed via an explosion of a fireball does not diminish your theory, it only makes it more basic and simple. You shouldn't have to construct a way in which said BL kills absolutely all of them. You should be willing to accept some or all died as a result of other means other then BL, while at the same time tow the line for the BL being the root cause of the situation i.e. forced away from tent. The 2Yuris being burned by the fire and not BL, same deal.

Like others, I am not married to any particlular theory, so I have no dog in the fight. I only wish you would accept other possibilities and how they may play a roll in how they died. If a BL scared them off the ridge, and then several other circumstances ultimately contribute to their passing.... whats wrong with that? Why does this 'have' to be ALL BL or nothing for you? Help me to understand this reasoning.

Loose-Cannon 23-09-2017 19:10 (GMT)
"had a wound at the back of head (autopsy says post mortem) and a deformed neck (not investigated!)".

That 'was' the investigation. Lol it was concluded right there on the autopsy table. Post mortem.

Another note. The den3 with injuries during life... The injuries reflect exactly how they were found on the rocks. I do not believe the snow pushed them much if any. Just looking at LD slumped over the rock does not seem to be a natural way to 'wash' over a rock, especially with both arms up and over. Her ribs were broken on both sides in the FRONT exactly how she was found. Nikolai and SZ were found... On rocks... In the creek... laying on their right side....Both having broken bones on the right side of the body.

If there was a collapse or shift of a snow bank... It likely threw them to the ground right where they stood and the impact against the rocks caused the injuries.

Or, thats where they were murdered and or tossed. Depending on the theory you subscribe to. Either way, I believe it was the bodies being thrown/pressed against the rocks that broke the bones, and you do NOT need a fireball to shift or collapse a wall of snow. Especially 'if' they just dug a large chunk of it out for a 'den'. OR the den was staged.... We know it was 'reconstructed?'.
Nigel Evans 23-09-2017 18:48 (GMT)
@Lyndasez - "Where did this BL impact, it just spontaneously combusted, where?"
Don't know, two people got burns which could be the fire of course.
The theory is the rav4 (and perhaps Rustem) got an aerial blast within the ravine or the BL exploded within the snowbank that held the den.

"Ummm, she was pressed against it when found, now she was either thrown with the rest, slipped down there on her knees or fell an tried to reach others. But, anyway you slice its there's a ledge/wall there, no doubt. She and 3 others are on 2 different levels."

"An examination of the dead bodies, and the severe injuries to Joannah, revealed that all three had suffered burns to the face, neck, and breast, and that the hair on their heads was intact on one side while burnt off on the other. The clothes of each girl were also partly destroyed."

There's no injuries like the above on the RAV4. Where did this BL impact, it just spontaneously combusted, where?

@Lyndasez - "I've read that novella you posted. I see 2 killed sat by in amazement, they didn't jump out windows..seems they headed for shelter and those outside froze in fear. Quite different how the hikers reacted, no?"
Something forced the hikers flee in their socks and crucially STAY AWAY from the tent for some time, so different behaviour. I just posted it because LC is filling up the pages with autopsy reports. Although rollers could be relevant to the undocumented rumour (afaik) that the investigation team experienced them later on.

"If your claim is BL is respnsible for the RAV4..how did it involve Alex, he died of exposure"
Fair point, but he had a wound at the back of head (autopsy says post mortem) and a deformed neck (not investigated!) so just guessing that he was unconcious and died of cold.

"and Luddy it's explained, she fell or ran into a ledge. "
Based on the forensic examination of the corpse of Ms. L.A. Dubinina I think that the death of Ms. Dubinina was caused by massive haemorrhage into the right ventricle, multiple bilateral rib fractures, and internal bleeding into the thoracic cavity.

Thank you, Just saw they weren't paid for that time an wondered. Trying to figure why Dyatlov didn't file the last of his paperwork=the route map, seems they had to put it together from memory.
Nigel Evans 23-09-2017 16:10 (GMT)
@Lyndasez - I've a memory of reading that a student wasn't given permission to travel in order to fit Semyon in. Think the others were recent graduates of the Uni and still socially connected.

@Loose-Cannon - "There is never going to be anything conclusive in this case... Only probable."
Agreed, but it's fun to chew over and make the case for your favourite theory, having someone to contest it with sharpens the thinking and improves the result. Since we've been arguing i've learnt a lot about the DPI and assumed facts.

"FYI... Its completely unnatural to fall with a closed fist, just like it is to lay down on a hill with your feet towards the summit."
When i broke my leg skiing i was going fast enough to be flying through the air and on landing found myself skiing downhill with a broken tibia. This gives one a problem, how to stop travelling downhill on one good leg.. So i took the biggest swallow dive ever (not easy on 1.95m skis off one leg on these - https://images.evo.com/imgp/700/1446/157991/k2-seth-vicious-skis-2006.jpg .) and came to a stop after a long slide facing downhill with my arms protecting my head and clenched fists (adding a broken fibula to the list). If i had expired at that point that's how they would have found me. True i didn't and the pain of two broken ends of my tibia scraping past each other as the muscle contracted got me turned round real quick to use gravity to counter it but you get the idea. It all depends on what happens and how gravity reduces the pain Happy

Rustem had a 1litre of internal bleeding same as Semyon. So quite plausible imo that he was further away from the ravine explosion but the shockwave tore his rib muscle et al and he collapsed and died with the same degree of internal bleeding as Semyon. So it fits he was trying to get back to the tent with Zina. The clenched fist indicating pain.

That's the DPI for you. What's not ambiguous is that they built a fire which is somewhat at odds with the murder most foul theories. Don't see that getting mentioned much in this War and Peace of injury stuff.

"This is a jamming injury to the hand... No doubt about it."
What like when you slip badly and stick your hand in a rock?

"Its a whole host of injuries that are 100% consistent with hand/hand combat. "
Its a whole host of injuries that are 100% ambiguous with hand/hand combat. Nearly all the right words and spelling is correct...

"you should remember you have already had to eat crow numerous times in the past few weeks."
Yes and i'm eating crow becuase I'M finding errors in stated facts which is more than you have done. But nothing to change the overall BL theory, just details.

"and I think you keep forgetting they were found NEXT TO A FIRE."
Yes that's why i used the word ambiguous... Happy

"the second metacarpal bone is an abrasion 2 x 1.5 cm in size, brownish-colored with hemorrhages in the underlying soft tissues".

Its not just one busted lip Nigel. Its a whole host of injuries that are 100% consistent with hand/hand combat. Instead of ignoring the overwhelming evidence of fighting injuries, you should remember you have already had to eat crow numerous times in the past few weeks.

They nearly ALL have these injuries consistent with fighting across the hands and face/head. Amazing how selective BL would be when nobody even knows what BL consists of. :/ I would also presume the medical examiners would know what an electrical burn looks like vs a fire burn, and I think you keep forgetting they were found NEXT TO A FIRE.

Three more to go!

@LC - "Address the injuries of Yuri-D"

As said many times now they're all ambiguous, burnt hair could be from the fire, could be from BL. The pulmonary edema could be from falling or electrocution from BL... The split lip is a combat wound but falling out of a tree could do it. There's not one individual where it is clear they they got beaten up, all ambiguous which lends the evidence to a non combat scenario imo and in Ivanov's.

Also imo it's a stretch that these tough resilient kids should both end up dead with burns and edema from falling out of a tree. Accidents do happen, but i'm finding this hard to swallow. But there was human skin/flesh on the tree and YuriK lived long enough afterwards to bite the back of his hand dealing with the pain. But i'd put my money on something other than a human accident, maybe even superhuman...

N.B. the gore could be from his brain expanding, bursting into the sinus area and running out of his nose. This is relevant to Rustems fracture if his sinuses didn't burst then the skull might crack. http://www.rjlm.ro/doc/07-refrigeration-inducedskullbasefracture.pdf .

Yuri Doroshenko. The long time lover of Zina and quite possibly the trigger for Igors issues. Lets do this.
https://sites.google.com/site/hibinaud/home/akt-issledovania-trupa-dorosenko-uria .

"On the left leg are two pairs of knitted light brown socks, with rips in the area of ??the rear of the foot and ankle joint; woolen socks are white, with a heel trimmed, in the area of ??the forefoot on the toe, there is a burnt area of ??2 х 5 cm in dark brown color".
NOTE: Burnt toe area of left sock. Unknown if the toe itself is burned.

"On the right leg, the remnants of a cotton sock with an elastic band are the same color as the one on the left. Wool white socks. On the inner surface of the panties there is a marking label with the inscription STS1313".
NOTE: Thats an odd brand name for a pair of undies. :/ But I digress! .


"In the right temporo-parietal and occipital region there is a burning area of ??the ends of the hair, the hair is stained with remains of moss and needles of coniferous trees".
NOTE: Ends of the hair on the right side above and behind the ear are burned.

"In the region of the back of the nose, the tip of the nose and the upper lip, there are traces of discharge of gore".
NOTE: Not very spicific as to what the 'gore' actually is, but I would imagine blood is involved. Blood/snot... You get the idea.

"Upper lip swelling, in the red portion of the upper lip hemorrhage dark red measuring 1.5 x 2 cm".
NOTE: Swollen upper lip thats busted... Hemorrhaging... Blood.

"In the area of ??the right cheek, soft tissues are covered with a layer of frothy gray liquid, from the mouth of the mouth there are traces of discharge of liquid of gray color".
NOTE: Fairly strange.... Literally foaming out of the mouth when died. Pretty sure this is where the pulmonary edema comes from. "Pulmonary edema is a condition caused by excess fluid in the lungs. This fluid collects in the numerous air sacs in the lungs, making it difficult to breathe. In most cases, heart problems cause pulmonary edema." Fairly important information I would say.

"on the inner surface of the right shoulder in the middle third are two abrasions measuring 2 x 1.5 cm. brown color of parchment density of irregular shape, without hemorrhages in the underlying tissues. In the area of ??these abrasions two cuts of linear are made".
NOTE: Minor cuts and Abrasions outer collar bone/arm region likely caused by carrying a heavy pack. Had this myself in the usmc plenty of times. Yuri was a fairly big dude and likely carried the tent, which would be the heaviest load. You can see him carrying it in this pic... For the last time. http://dyatlov-pass.com/resources/340/gallery/Krivonischenko-camera-film1-31.jpg .

"On the front surface of the right shoulder, small bruises of reddish color in the form of strips measuring 4 x 1 cm, 2.5 x 1.5 cm and 5 x 0.5 cm and minor abrasions in the lower third of the right forearm".
NOTE: Right shoulder same as above, and and minor abrasions of the forearm.

"In the area of ??the rear of the right hand, soft tissue swelling and minor abrasions. At the rear of the hand".
NOTE: Back of the right hand is swollen with abrasions.

"the second metacarpal bone is an abrasion 2 x 1.5 cm in size, brownish-colored with hemorrhages in the underlying soft tissues".
NOTE: Right index finger abrasion along with some serious damage to the underlying tissue. This is... In fact what happens when you punch something, or someone... Along with swelling of the back of the hand. This is a jamming injury to the hand... No doubt about it.


"On the lateral surfaces of the left elbow joint, small abrasions of a burgundy color of parchment density and abrasions of the same color 2 x 3 cm in size with traces of slip in the form of bands parallel to each other".
NOTE: Abrasion of the elbow.. could be from anything.

"On the inner surface of the left forearm on the border of the middle third and the lower third, the cutaneous wound of an irregular oval shape measuring 0.6 x 0.5 cm, its edges slightly pinched and covered with gore, under the wound marks of gore. A cut was made in the region of this wound, where a hemorrhage in the underlying soft tissues was detected".
NOTE: cutaneous..... 'of the skin'. Deep nasty pusy wound with underlying bleeding with a raised outer rim... Like a volcano crater rim.


"Soft tissue in the area of ??the rear of the left hand is slightly swollen reddish-colored. End phalanx of fingers of hands dark-blue color".
NOTE: Swollen back of left hand, and the ending segments of the fingers have early signs of frostbite. Bet ya 100 rubles he is right handed.

"Soft tissues in the area of ??the terminal phalanges of the toes of the foot are dark-colored".
NOTE: Ends of all toes showing signs of frostbite.

"The aperture of the anus and the urethra are clean".
NOTE: Yeah... Too much information!!!



Ok... Yuri-D wasn't in 'that' bad of shape. He had a few easily explainable bumps and scrapes, but he obviously punched the living shit out of 'something' or 'someone', and received a nice busted lip.

The real interesting ones are yet to come

A STRANGE TRAGEDY ON THE MALVERN HILLS

If the GLO ‘Fireball’ might be compared to an aerial bomb, artillery shell, or depth-charge, and the ‘Apparition’ to a floating mine, then the ‘Roller’ is perhaps best described as the ‘battle tank’ of these phenomenal invaders. The following case, surely one of the weirdest and most chilling events of a phenomenal nature ever recorded, certainly bears out the latter analogy.

On a fine day at the height of the English summer, the three daughters and the eldest son of Joseph Hill, a wealthy resident of Lindridge, an attractive village in the valley of the River Teme, Worcestershire, set out for a walk over the nearby Malvern Hills. They were accompanied by several young ladies, staying as guests of the family, and a manservant bearing their provisions in a small handcart.
Around 15:00, the party reached the Worcestershire Beacon, at 425 metres above sea level the highest point in the range, and upon which there was a solitary building that had been erected on the orders of a Lady Harcourt. The robust structure, designed as a storm shelter and intended for the use of people walking on the hills, was built of stone and covered with a roof of iron plates. It consisted of a single room with a stone table in the centre and seats on each side; it had two apertures: a doorway and a window sited opposite the door.
Shortly after their arrival the sky took on an ominous appearance, and soon a great and furious electric storm advanced upon the hill. Brilliant discharges of lightning flashed from the skies almost incessantly, producing a succession of thunderclaps, the violence of which was so great as to make the ground itself shudder. Quite understandably the young people became fearful of being in the open at the mercy of the elements, and the entire party, with the exception of the servant, abandoned their picnic and fled into the shelter. No doubt feeling reasonably secure once they were within its sturdy walls, Eliza and Joannah Hill, and a friend, Ellen Woodyatt of Hereford, seated themselves at the table, while the rest stood and waited for the storm to pass. What none could have been aware of was the approach of a menacing phenomenon with all the energetic potential of the deadliest lightning bolt ever hurled into the earth, and yet so lethally different from an ordinary electrical discharge that it rendered those within as vulnerable as the poor servant left outside to face the tempest.
After a while, Margaret Hill, aged about 15, who had been extremely upset by the storm, went to the door hoping to see some sign that the disturbance was moving away.
Deliverance, however, was certainly not at hand instead she saw the remorseless approach of a thing unearthly and absolutely terrifying: a huge ball of ‘electric fire’ was rolling at high velocity along the surface of the hill, and directly towards the entrance of the party’s retreat! So rapid was the advance of this dreadful object that no sooner had the poor girl recovered from her initial shock, and before she could alert those within, it was upon her and she was hurled violently to the ground. Quite remarkably, though her shoes, and part of her dress, were burned, Margaret survived. Her brother, who had been standing nearby, was injured in much the same manner.
Some other members of the party, however, were tragically and quite horribly less fortunate. The rolling fireball rushed into the building through the doorway and struck the stone table, which was instantly shattered into fragments. It then passed straight across the room and exited through the window, tearing out the frame and surrounding stonework. In its passage, the rampaging fireball also smashed apart many of the large stones that comprised the walls. Of the three young women seated around the table, two, Eliza and Ellen, were killed on the spot, and Joannah was left apparently more dead than alive.
The horror of the scene left the manservant, who alone had suffered no physical injury, almost deranged. When he looked into the shelter, it must have seemed like a massacre, for all the young persons had been affected; most had been struck down and lay dead or injured on the ground. He began to scream with hysteria, his pitiful cries alerting a labourer working nearby.
This man rendered whatever assistance he could before seeking help. Eventually a physician reached the scene, examined the badly injured Joannah and, having discovered that vital signs were still present, proceeded to open a vein and relieve the victim of a quantity of blood - still a standard procedure in 1826. She was then taken to Great Malvern and lodged in the Unicorn Inn where she remained, possibly conscious but certainly unable to speak. Doctors were pessimistic as to her chances of recovery (optimism being somewhat unfashionable in the medical circles of those days).
An examination of the dead bodies, and the severe injuries to Joannah, revealed that all three had suffered burns to the face, neck, and breast, and that the hair on their heads was intact on one side while burnt off on the other. The clothes of each girl were also partly destroyed. A coroner’s inquest on the deceased would have been held within a few days, but, to the best of my knowledge, no further details were printed in subsequent issues of the two London newspapers* from which I have compiled this account.
According to a paper in the Transactions of the Worcestershire Archaeological Society for 1957, an entry in the diary of Charles Dunne (1783-1850), rector of the manor of Earl’s Croome, refers to three women having died in the tragedy, while a footnote states that the victims were a party of seven, and that all three of the Hill girls were killed along with Miss Woodyat.
The true number of fatal victims could be traced through burial records, and it is probable that at least one of the victims is interred in the churchyard at Lindridge where some form of memorial should be extant. The fate of poor Joanna is no doubt described in an article, or announcement in a local newspaper which should eventually be located.
The nature of this terrible rolling fireball, if examined in terms of conventional atmospheric physics is totally inexplicable: An ‘ordinary’ discharge of lightning would have immediately gone to earth in or close to its point of contact in a fraction of a second, but this fearsome peripatetic manifestation was sustained, coherent in form, and evidently under control.
The destruction of the stone table was an example of the awesome power of the GLO Roller, while its effects on the three victims seated around the table, demonstrates the complex nature of what was clearly a violent, yet curiously selective outpouring of energy. The dramatic fracturing of this rather formidable item of furniture would have actually been caused by heat, generated when electrical energy from the fireball penetrated this poor conductor and obstacle to its progress. Energetic discharges, projected out like tentacles, had much the same effect on the wall stones they contacted, and also removed the window and its surround in a violent but mechanical fashion.
Contact with human tissue and clothing evidently brought about an almost instantaneous change of amperage and frequency in these electric and electromagnetic projections, a factor that prevented the victims’ bodies from superheating and exploding into fragments. Whatever the nature of the mechanism housed within the envelope of the GLO, it clearly operated at a phenomenal speed and seems to have endowed the object with a crude sense of purpose.

more of Ivanov's nonsense

Lev Ivanov, who conducted the subsequent investigation and closed the case, stated, "In May, together with EP Maslennikov, we inspected the vicinity of the scene of the incident (in the area of ??the ravine and cedar), noting that some of the new spruce at the edge of the forest have burn marks, but such traces did not have a concentric shape or any other shape system, nor did they have an epicenter. This confirms that some kind of heat ray or strong energy, but completely unknown (at least for us), has been directed, acting selectively: the snow has not been melted, the trees have not been damaged. It was forming the impression that, when the tourists, at their feet, descended down the mountain, somebody intentionally ended some of them

-- um ... you could claim political prisoners are everywhere, even in the USA.

--- also --- Perm-36 is outside Moscow and is over 1,000 miles from where the tourists were.

--- from the wiki site you posted --- note the last date (April 4, 1956) for administration of the gulags --- anything after that date was illegal and subject to immediate shut-down.

Ok DP fans... I'm calling this series of autopsy reviews.. "THINGS THE BL GESTAPO DOES NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW".

In tonight's post we will observe the body of Yuri Doroshenko. The long time lover of Zina and quite possibly the trigger for Igors issues. Lets do this.
https://sites.google.com/site/hibinaud/home/akt-issledovania-trupa-dorosenko-uria .

"On the left leg are two pairs of knitted light brown socks, with rips in the area of ??the rear of the foot and ankle joint; woolen socks are white, with a heel trimmed, in the area of ??the forefoot on the toe, there is a burnt area of ??2 х 5 cm in dark brown color".
NOTE: Burnt toe area of left sock. Unknown if the toe itself is burned.

"On the right leg, the remnants of a cotton sock with an elastic band are the same color as the one on the left. Wool white socks. On the inner surface of the panties there is a marking label with the inscription STS1313".
NOTE: Thats an odd brand name for a pair of undies. :/ But I digress! .


"In the right temporo-parietal and occipital region there is a burning area of ??the ends of the hair, the hair is stained with remains of moss and needles of coniferous trees".
NOTE: Ends of the hair on the right side above and behind the ear are burned.

"In the region of the back of the nose, the tip of the nose and the upper lip, there are traces of discharge of gore".
NOTE: Not very spicific as to what the 'gore' actually is, but I would imagine blood is involved. Blood/snot... You get the idea.

"Upper lip swelling, in the red portion of the upper lip hemorrhage dark red measuring 1.5 x 2 cm".
NOTE: Swollen upper lip thats busted... Hemorrhaging... Blood.

"In the area of ??the right cheek, soft tissues are covered with a layer of frothy gray liquid, from the mouth of the mouth there are traces of discharge of liquid of gray color".
NOTE: Fairly strange.... Literally foaming out of the mouth when died. Pretty sure this is where the pulmonary edema comes from. "Pulmonary edema is a condition caused by excess fluid in the lungs. This fluid collects in the numerous air sacs in the lungs, making it difficult to breathe. In most cases, heart problems cause pulmonary edema." Fairly important information I would say.

"on the inner surface of the right shoulder in the middle third are two abrasions measuring 2 x 1.5 cm. brown color of parchment density of irregular shape, without hemorrhages in the underlying tissues. In the area of ??these abrasions two cuts of linear are made".
NOTE: Minor cuts and Abrasions outer collar bone/arm region likely caused by carrying a heavy pack. Had this myself in the usmc plenty of times. Yuri was a fairly big dude and likely carried the tent, which would be the heaviest load. You can see him carrying it in this pic... For the last time. http://dyatlov-pass.com/resources/340/gallery/Krivonischenko-camera-film1-31.jpg .

"On the front surface of the right shoulder, small bruises of reddish color in the form of strips measuring 4 x 1 cm, 2.5 x 1.5 cm and 5 x 0.5 cm and minor abrasions in the lower third of the right forearm".
NOTE: Right shoulder same as above, and and minor abrasions of the forearm.

"In the area of ??the rear of the right hand, soft tissue swelling and minor abrasions. At the rear of the hand".
NOTE: Back of the right hand is swollen with abrasions.

"the second metacarpal bone is an abrasion 2 x 1.5 cm in size, brownish-colored with hemorrhages in the underlying soft tissues".
NOTE: Right index finger abrasion along with some serious damage to the underlying tissue. This is... In fact what happens when you punch something, or someone... Along with swelling of the back of the hand. This is a jamming injury to the hand... No doubt about it.


"On the lateral surfaces of the left elbow joint, small abrasions of a burgundy color of parchment density and abrasions of the same color 2 x 3 cm in size with traces of slip in the form of bands parallel to each other".
NOTE: Abrasion of the elbow.. could be from anything.

"On the inner surface of the left forearm on the border of the middle third and the lower third, the cutaneous wound of an irregular oval shape measuring 0.6 x 0.5 cm, its edges slightly pinched and covered with gore, under the wound marks of gore. A cut was made in the region of this wound, where a hemorrhage in the underlying soft tissues was detected".
NOTE: cutaneous..... 'of the skin'. Deep nasty pusy wound with underlying bleeding with a raised outer rim... Like a volcano crater rim.


"Soft tissue in the area of ??the rear of the left hand is slightly swollen reddish-colored. End phalanx of fingers of hands dark-blue color".
NOTE: Swollen back of left hand, and the ending segments of the fingers have early signs of frostbite. Bet ya 100 rubles he is right handed.

"Soft tissues in the area of ??the terminal phalanges of the toes of the foot are dark-colored".
NOTE: Ends of all toes showing signs of frostbite.

"The aperture of the anus and the urethra are clean".
NOTE: Yeah... Too much information!!!



Ok... Yuri-D wasn't in 'that' bad of shape. He had a few easily explainable bumps and scrapes, but he obviously punched the living shit out of 'something' or 'someone'. No real issues of any kind to the face etc, so I imagine? he was a giver and not a taker. Happy

The real interesting ones are yet to come. Happy

re: John Wolfe 09-22-2017 21:41 (GMT)

I forgot to add to the comment (see below this) ..... according to the trolls ...... all this was covered up by the Soviet Government because they found out it was carried out by their own KGB in an effort to hide secret weapons testing which leaves no evidence (other than strange injuries) and was designed to confuse the American CIA agent who just happened to be in the area to pick up a sample of "radioactive" material from a defector --- thus, this assassination of the nine counter-revolutionary hikers was assigned to the Mansi (modern, and quite friendly, Siberian hunter-gatherers / tribesmen / they're also good drinkers) who hired Yeti (abomdidibaomdidibomadbale snow-men) who don't actually exist but existed long enough to hand it off to space aliens -- WHO USED BALL LIGHTNING TO ATTACK THE HIKERS ! (and thus thoroughly confuse this writer) -- the very same space aliens, who, I might add, are sick to death of internet trolls. (I know, I know, I know ....... the internet wasn't conceived until the mid-1960's, and utilizing software developed in the 1970's, was privately implemented in the late 1980's and made public in the early 1990's ....... but the space aliens have a time machine !)

Nigel Evans 22-09-2017 21:12 (GMT)
@LC - the injuries are consistent with several situations some involving fighting, some do not. The problem is that the injuries are ambiguous. This argues strongly imo that they're not from fighting. If fighting had occured surely there would be injuries that were clearly human inflicted? Maybe this was Ivanov's view based on his experience as a policeman...
Loose-Cannon 22-09-2017 20:43 (GMT)
Im stating, that I believe most of the victims exhibit injuries consistent with fighting. This evidence is not easily explained as to who, and why etc. Im stating it simply exists, and cannot be overlooked regardless as to the theory one subscribes to. I was completely neutral in my post about on Yuri. I even gave the benefit of doubt he was climbing the cedar and several of his injuries could very well be related to the act of climbing said cedar, frostbite, and burns.

5 nights of autopsy reports.... Post 2 coming up in just a few hrs.

The info about the fall is from 2 sites, you determine.

". Doroshenko was lying on his stomach. Beneath it found a broken branch of a tree from falling into several pieces." -hibinaud

"Remains of a fire under old cedar with branches broken up to 5 m high suggesting that hikers had climbed up to look for something or to hide from someone." -this site. 16ft
Loose-Cannon 22-09-2017 13:29 (GMT)
Nigel...

Never have I claimed the 2Yuris died from falling from the cedar, nor have I suggested their other injuries directly resulted in their deaths. You have an opinion that BL spicifically targets the back of hands and the face of its victims. I am of the opinion that there very well have been a tree climbing exercise, but some of these injuries are a clear sign of possible fight, i.e 'hand/hand combat'.

We all know from their photo evidence that these injuries were not present in the days prior, and you shouldn't get them by pitching a tent in deep snow or walking down a hill.

You have your opinion and now we should hear from the rest of the board what they think. Happy

We have several more victims to go through..... Happy

Nigel Evans 22-09-2017 12:15 (GMT)
@LC - i think you're looking too hard at bruises/abrasions that could have already been there and too little at the question of the two deaths. The probability of them both dying in one fall is too small. Could happen but unlikely. Something else.
Loose-Cannon 22-09-2017 12:09 (GMT)
He would have had to slid up/down the trunk causing all the arm/leg abrasions... maybe cheeks. Then fell out of the top whacking a dif location of his head on every branch branch on the way down, and somehow not break any bones.

When I was 7 years old, I fell out a tree and snapped my elbow. Yeah... I was a climber.
Nigel Evans 22-09-2017 11:59 (GMT)
@LC - imo a bad fall particularly on sharp stubs of cedar branches lands on fire concussed burns leg could explain YK.
What's curious here is both the Yuris seem to die early in the sequence of events. That's pushing probabilities imo.
They could both be involved in the fall but both dying?
Loose-Cannon 22-09-2017 11:31 (GMT)
-" if these guys have fallen out of a tree then split lips etc are explainable. Ivanov mentions that there was a small piece of flesh hanging from the cedar, looks a really bad slide/fall."

Normally I would agree, but not with this... Way too many of said injuries to be causes by one fall.
Nigel Evans 22-09-2017 10:54 (GMT)
@LC - YuriK's finger wasn't missing? Not true.

@KMM - my theory would have it that Igor waited too long for the Zina and Rustem to return and was suffering from hypothermia = confusion. He seems to have been stopped ascending by small thicket, i.e. too confused to navigate around.

@LC - if these guys have fallen out of a tree then split lips etc are explainable. Ivanov mentions that there was a small piece of flesh hanging from the cedar, looks a really bad slide/fall.

"Death violent - unhappy happening"
Loose-Cannon 22-09-2017 02:34 (GMT)
Lets look at some of these injuries. Starting with my favorite of the bunch... Yuri-K .
https://sites.google.com/site/hibinaud/home/akt-issledovania-trupa-krivonisenko-g .


"The left-hand lower half pants offline until the level of the knee joint, the edge of the fabric pants in areas breakage pants misaligned with charring the fabric." .
NOTE: Good to know... His left outer pant leg was missing up to the knee with a jagged charred edge.

"in an outer pocket a coil of copper wire and silk pink ribbon." .
NOTE: I thought this was a bit odd, but whatever .

"On the left leg cotton sock torn, the edges of his charred." .
NOTE: Charred left sock also.

"In the left temporal region there are two abrasions of a brownish-red color of parchment density, with a size of 1.2 by ?, 3 cm and 1 cm by 0.2 cm" .
NOTE: Abrasions on the left temple.. welp somehow they got there! You decide.

In the middle third of the nose, a brown-red abrasion , parchment density, passing into the wound in the tip of the nose and wings with a defect of soft tissues measuring 1.8 x 2 cm.
NOTE: Another abrasion. This one on the nose that goes right up to the point the tip of nose being missing. I do agree the missing tip of nose was from scavengers.

"Mucous lips of dark-cinnamon- colored parchment density, the mouth is closed, lips are swollen. Behind the lower." .
NOTE: Swollen lips!! I don't think its possible for ship rats to swell up lips in extreme sub-zero temps.

"Behind the lower teeth flap epidermis pale gray color with papillary lines size of flap 1.8 to 0.6 cm." .
NOTE: Cut lower lip into top two layers if skin... And size. The size is nearly 3/4 of an inch for all you non Brits. Thats one hell of a busted lip! .

"on the cheeks abrasion dark brown color parchment density" .
NOTE: More abrasions to the face... More ship rat carnage? You decide .

"The auricles are swollen with a cyanotic red color" .
NOTE: Red and Swollen ears!! Again... Swelling in sub temps.

"On the right side surface of the rib cage at the level of the axillary cavities abrasions of pale red color measuring 7 by 2 cm, without hemorrhages in the underlying tissues." .
NOTE: More abrasions.... Right side of mid rib cage. Not so deep.

"At the rib margin of the right hypochondrium along the middle clavicle line abrasions of pale red color of parchment density of 2 x 1.2 cm size 1 x 1.2 cm, without hemorrhages in the underlying tissues." .
NOTE: Another abrasion. Upper right chest inline with nipple. Not that deep

"The rear of the right hand is swollen. In the region of the metacarpophalangeal joints, soft tissues are whitish -gray in color, the fingers burolilovogo colors terminal phalanx dry dark brown color, n and rear of these fingers minor skin abrasions dark brown color parchment density. Palmar surface of the right hand bluish-red color with skin Ranko with jagged edges dark brown color at the base of the first finger. On the middle phalanx of the third (forwarded from the "average" - note). finger defect of the epidermis in shape and size coinciding with that found in the oral cavity".
NOTE: Right hand swollen, blueish red color, jagged cut at base of index finger.... And a big chunk of the back of his hand missing...... Matches the chunk of skin found stuck in his own teeth.

"In the area of ??the left wrist joint, grazes of dark red color of parchment density of 5 x 2.5 cm, the rear of the left hand swelling".
NOTE: Swollen left hand.

"Along the whole width of the rear - the left hand scalp wound with delaminated epidermis dark brown color parchment density measuring 8 x 2 cm".
NOTE: Big damn cut roughly 3" by .75" above and behind the left ear.

"Rear fingers 2-5 left brush black color with wrinkled epidermis 5 thumb and dried up end phalanges. On the palmar surface, the soft tissues of the terminal phalanges are dried, dense. On average phalanges 4-5 fingers a skin wound of 1.5 x 1 cm and 1 x 0.5 cm of dark brown color, dense to the touch with charring".
NOTE: Dried up... Frostbite.... Down to the bone in fact. Phalanges are the bones within the hand. Sounds like some burning also. Poor dude burnt his hand trying to prevent frostbite and failed.

"On the outer surface of the left buttock and the left thigh are areas of soft tissues of pink color and brown color of parchment density with a sliding epidermis on the site size 10 x 3 cm, 6 x 2 cm and 4 x 5 cm".
NOTE: Basically another big ass abrasion... On the butt/thigh.

"On the antero-internal surface of the thigh abrasions of dark brown dark-red color of parchment density in size ? x 2 cm. 1 x 1.5 cm, and more small".
NOTE: Same left thigh, inner abrasion... Smaller then the outer thigh/butt abrasion.

"On the inner surface of the upper third of the left thigh, three skin lesions ??? eynoy shape with smooth edges depth up to 0.3 cm. with sharp angles size of 1.5 to 04 cm. Left shin and ??? and swollen".
NOTE: Strange lacerations and swelling of the upper 1/3 of the inner left thigh. Could quite possibly be from climbing a tree.... Ill give ya that one Nigel.
NOTE: Big ass burn on lower shin/calf of leg... I thought it was the right, but this says left.

"On the posteromedial surface of the left lower leg abrasions dark brown color parchment density measuring 8 x 1.3 cm. ? x 1.5 cm and 2 x 1 cm".
NOTE: Abrasion on the mid section of left calf

"The rear of the left foot is brown- brown in color with epidermis peeling sites measuring 10 x 4 cm. ??? The second finger is charred dark brown the color of the fabric ????? are dense to the touch".
NOTE: Left heel skin peeling... More of the burn I believe. The ring-toe is charred

"On the front surface of the right thigh and lower leg, abrasions dark brown color of parchment density of 5 x 2 cm. 3 x 8 cm, 7 x 1 cm, and 2 x ? cm".
NOTE: 4 Abrasions down the front of right leg.


Some of these injuries can be from climbing a tree or scuffling about in the woods etc, but the hand wounds, and swelling along with the cut lip, head, swollen lips and ears tell me he was in a scuffle with someone or something. You won't get this many external issues from one fall out a tree and he was in perfect health via photographic evidence in the days prior. He obtained all these injuries that fateful night.

Nigel Evans 21-09-2017 23:23 (GMT)
@Lyndasez - there are two groups, SZ/AK/NTB are recorded as violent, the rest as violent accident including RS.
That's the finding. RS could have been "lucky" that he further away from the explosion that killed the rav4 so something like a chunk of snow or ice hit him on one side pushing his head against something else, maybe the ground maybe a tree. The fracture could also have been due to freezing.

Whatever, this whole combat thinking is divorced from the official reports. Officially it never happened.

Lyndasez 21-09-2017 21:48 (GMT)
OH this gets better n better! Thanks for the link, LC!


"The fracture of the left frontal bone found during internal investigation could occur when a citizen of Slobodin fell or a bruise of the head area about solid objects, such as stones, ice and so on. This closed trauma of the skull is caused by a blunt instrument. At the time of its appearance, it undoubtedly caused a state of short-term stunning of SLOBODIN and facilitated the fastest freezing of SLOBODINE. The absence of a pronounced cerebral hemorrhage gives reason to believe that the death of SLOBODIN occurred precisely as a result of its freezing.
Body injuries found on the body of a citizen Slobodina, in the form of abrasions, scratches, and sieges are caused by a blunt instrument as a result of a fall or bruise on stones, ice and so on.
Damage was caused both during life, as well as in the agonal state and posthumously.
The data of the investigation of the corpse of SLOBODIN give grounds to believe that the food intake was 6-8 hours before the moment of death. The presence of alcohol during internal investigation was not detected.
-2-

Taking into account the above bodily injuries, Slobodin could move and crawl in the first hours from the moment of their infliction.
The death of Slobodin is violent - an accident."

Rustem couldn't move after being stunned by a blunt instrument ...but the injuries are on both sides of the head?!

Really, no signs of violence, only on RAV4?!

What's this:
"Fracture of the frontal bone and hemorrhages (shaded areas) in the temporalis muscles that were found on the skull of Rustem Slobodin"

"swelling and a lot of small abrasions on both sides of the face"

"bruises in the metacarpophalangeal joints on both hands. Similar bruises are common in hand to hand combat"
Nigel Evans 21-09-2017 20:27 (GMT)
@LC - this is poor stuff even for you, no signs of violence at the tent or the cedar only at the ravine.

Only the rav4 show any signs of violence according to the official report (from your link) :-

"Forensic medical examination found that Dyatlov, Doroshenko, Krivonischenko and Kolmogorov died from the action of low temperature (frozen), none of them had physical injuries, not counting minor scratches and abrasions. Slobodin had a crack in the skull 6 cm long, which had spread to 0.1 cm, but Slobodin died from cooling."

The body injuries found on the body of Kolevatov are in the head area - defects in soft tissues, as well as "bath" skin, are posthumous changes in a corpse that was recently found before it was found in the water.
Kolevatov's death is violent."

Oh no, Ivanovs gut reaction was murder....then this:

"You know, Slava, it seems to me that there were two impacts of the elemental forces unknown to us: first – it was a mental impact bs it kicked them out of the tent just out of the blue, and the second – the physical impact that destroyed the three who went away from the main group”.

It is one of the mysteries how Igor had no shoes or gloves but died of cold without any frostbite. Ditto Rustem, Zina had a little fb on her fingers, none on her feet.

This is making less and less sense. Since Igor is the leader an strongest, he'd first make a roaring fire out of that staged "den seat," move the injured to dry and warm surroundings. Leave Zina to tend, he an Rustem would retrieve supplies.. Seems the only one to really tend would be SZ.

Atmanaki: The impression was that he tried to go up [the slope], judging by the way his body was situated; and next to his head was a cluster of small saplings in which he was probably stuck. But if he had been heading down, then he would have had to go around them to get into the position where his body was discovered.

Atmanaki: On completely open, flat snow, swept by wind and snow, Axelrod’s dog became interested in something. We dug a little, and under ten centimetres of snow we found an elbow. The general location of the body was beneath 50cm of snow. The head was pointing in the direction of the tent, and the whole position was typical for a person trying to walk or crawl uphill. The team recognized Kolmogorova. Prosecutor Tempalov states: There are no trees for seventy metres. The body lies, like the previous bodies, face to the ground on its right side. The arms are bent under the body. Both legs are half bent, and the right is tucked up into her stomach. This gives the impression she was climbing. Her face is covered in blood. In the small of her back there’s blood. It can be conjectured that she didn’t try to crawl forward, but was trying to maintain her position. There appeared to be no injuries on her body with the exception of some grazes on her face. She probably got these from falling down on the stony ridges.

Where did the bags and bags of biscuits come from? The flask of alcohol.... thinned with methanol? Literal wood alcohol? People die in their own vomit all the time from that crap.

Another thing.

Many seem to assume that Rustem, Igor, and Zina were headed BACK to the tent simply because what... Their heads were towards the tent when found? I call BS.

I've always wondered about which direction they were actually going also. If they were going back to the tent to get equipment to help all, somebody would of said, " here wear my shoes"
Loose-Cannon 21-09-2017 03:31 (GMT)
Also.

Rustems hat was just a little pulled back. If I were about to take my last breath and die of numbing hypothermia with my face buried in deep snow, the last thing I would be worried about is fixing my cover. He could have been squirming around face down or literally nose dived for all we know. To say his hat is somehow contradictory to a murder theory is absurd.

If you are walking down a decent grade slope of a mountain and for one reason or another collapsed in pain, discomfort, exhaustion etc, you wouldn't sit or especially lay with your feet uphill. Its unnatural and uncomfortable to say the least. Its one of things you would naturally do without even thinking about it. You would go down on your butt, eventually lay back, and possibly roll over.

Point being.... NOBODY knows if they expired headed to, or away from the tent. Fact of the day. Happy

Loose-Cannon 21-09-2017 02:13 (GMT)
KMM...

I think your exactly right. When it comes right down to brass tacks, the BL theory doesn't hold any more water then any other theory. :/ Heck, the cuts in the tent (to me) look exactly like hatchet/axe cuts, and curved shovel cuts. Its really not hard to imagine a flap pealed back making the inside of the canvas now facing outward. You would have one heck of a challenge attempting to cut a semicircle in thick canvas yet alone do it several times unintentionally. :/

The official case files state a flap was pealed back on the windward side.... Thats it! The rest was done when Ivanov ordered them to dig it and its contents out with an axe and shovel, then drag the darn thing over rocks and ice to the helicopter pad. 8^o

Nigel...

You quoted ONE of several theories as to what BL is. Where is the documentation of powerful microwaves of this nature recorded directly from a real/live BL? If there isn't any... Its only one guess out of many. This is in no way shape or form 'proof' of..... Anything. You also do not have any proof of any 'hot spot'. The 'report' of crunchy ice from a reporter looking for a story. Amazing evidence, or more fake news? You know the Russians are propaganda masters right? I mean... This wouldn't be the first time a 'journalist' embellished something or flat out made up a story. Thats what they do... Always looking for an elaborate story and its common for them to make crap up as they go along.

In reality, there are wonky reports of..... Yeti, UFOs etc. How is this any different?

Don't get me wrong... Its just a huge reach. Did BL do it? Perhaps, but theory is very weak and based on nearly nothing. But possible... Like several others.

Its a 50/50 whether or not they even slashed their way out of the tent in the first place. 'If' they did, BL could be one of several reasons as to why, but it does not explain the casual walking away from it. That's really about it other then some sightings proving BL exists.

"ball lightning is a glow discharge driven by microwave radiation that is guided to the ball along lines of ionized air from lightning clouds where it is produced."

There was one more person present during the search, a journalist named Gennady Grygoryev. Thanks to him, we have more than the official and emotionless reports from the rescue team, and also some verbal inkling of the atmosphere: We came upon Mount 1079. The weather was calm, and the mountain was as if it was frozen in ice. The snow was compacted. There were ice-covered rock craters all around. The going was so slippery that, as I was carrying the camera and notebook, I almost broke my leg … The corpses were frozen and broken like glass.

@LC - not if it was just mild warming probably harmless in the short term, maybe longer term cancer etc. If it was strong enough to cook them it would have melted the snow completely as well perhaps. But raise the microwave strength a little higher and it starts interfering with the nervous system and creating nerve damage. Then people find they're getting clumsy and falling over, getting a lot of scratches and bruising. Raise it a bit more and they cannot operate their limbs properly, they just lose locomotion.

@Lyndasez - "the rav4 weren't preserved in snow they were decomposed".
Not really they'd been in the freezer until a short time before being found in the stream. They'd lost eyes and an tongue probably from predation but everything else including the internals was there to examine. Google images frostbite to see some graphic images, if they had any of that the autopsy would record it.

Now look at this chart - https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-XTozWAM3-Vw/UtBX1IWPVbI/AAAAAAAACi4/uraJWtO9rZs/s1600/Frostbite+Infographic.jpg .

Based on the above the people running around in their socks should have got fb in minutes, in an hour the tissue would be lost/blackened? The 2 yuris display this level of fb BUT NO ONE ELSE? As said it's really weird... Unless the condition of the snow indicating it has been raised in temp close to it's melt point (thaw/freeze) applied to that night? But then how do the 2yuris get it so bad? Enter the microwave warming theory, this warms the snow (water molecules) but not the air so the snow could be +1C but the air temp and associated wind chill could still be very extreme so if the 2yuris stay up in the cedar for any length of time they get bad fb but 4/5metres below them everyone is ok...

I don't mean to belabor the 'den' issue, however if we can exclude it being built by the RAV4. It opens a whole host of possibilities.

This was Russia in 1959.

@LC - "Nigel found a web page article (BL god particle) where some asshat claims a reporter (city folk) came onto the ridge and noticed the snow was crusty on top"

Now who is telling lies, this is the proper story...

The condition of the snow is one of the curiosities of the DPI.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

The last photos show them digging the base for the tent out of normal snow having skied there.
What the rescuers found was quite different, most of the snow across the whole slope had become extremely icy including the snow on the tent which was so tough to chip through that they damaged the tent. Rescuers couldn't ski to the tent but had to leave their skis and walk carefully the ground was so icy.
This condition is consistent with thaw/refreeze as any skier knows however this is the north east face of a siberian mountain. Also there was a spot near the tent called the "hot spot" were the snow had suffciently melted that it had become corrugated in the high winds and refrozen as clear(ish) ice.
http://www.viafanzine.jor.br/002imag/03_13/dyatlov4_cedro.jpg .
http://www.viafanzine.jor.br/002imag/03_13/dyatlov4_nodoa.jpg .
So signs of things warming up sometime after they took those photos of setting up camp.

Also there is the frostbite or lack of it. Seven of these people were in their socks at best and yet only the 2yuris show serious frostbite. Five people in their socks and no gloves for say two hours in -20C with a high wind chill creating effective temps of say -60C (before they got to the forest at least) they should have been getting FB in minutes in those conditions and serious FB in an hour (it probably took 20min to reach the cedar). But very modest fb in some of them with others having none at all. Really really weird.

So there are signs that this entire area was warmer than normal that night.

This fits with the BL theory in that the whole area was in a cloud of naturally created microwaves which also produced the BL. If you think that's science fiction then checkout - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_lightning#Microwave_cavity_hypothesis . True it is still just a theory and in that sense fiction, but one posited by a very senior physicist and one i'm very interested in hence my interest in the DPI. I think the 2012 photos at the DP are of a glow discharge as the theory has it.
This theory also explains why the returning three all expire within 330m of each other trying to ascend the mountain, i.e. climb back into the microwave cloud. It also gives you suntans and skin damage. In fact the BL/microwave theory is the only one to explain all the facts and curiosities of the DPI. Nothing else comes half as close.

KMM.. your right. It bothers me that the twigs are not crushed flat and otherwise have alot of air within them.
Loose-Cannon 20-09-2017 05:26 (GMT)
About the radiation...

I don't put as much into it as you may believe. I'm simply looking at all documented information available. From what I understand (maybe you know different) is that several substances naturally irradiate. Uranium is just what is used when producing plutonium. Either way said substances have to be enriched before reaching substantial levels. The specialist in the official case file didn't utter a single word about getting this naturally as if the run-off water deposited it, but yet quite the opposite. He went into detail regarding washing and how the levels would have been much higher beforehand.

Im more interested in the methanol idea at the moment... Historical context shows a great expansion of oil development at the time and the state had many 'bush drilling' outfits in the area. In the winter, they used enormous amounts of methanol to shove down a well hole to keep it from freezing. In fact, there is evidence showing those very helicopters that transported the bodies had normal operations in the area transporting large amounts of methanol. These model aircraft were literally designed for transporting heavy payloads. They were even instructed to drop their cargo in the outback country in the event of any type accident.... Engine failure, load securement etc...

Who is to say they didn't have a spill of methanol in the area that the woodpeckers waded through causing one or more people within the group to become sick? Through the skin, or through the lugs....either circumstance would have stopped the group in a rather precarious location under unfavorable conditions. Speaking of which, where are the rest of the group members when that photo of them digging in was taken? Where they off sight-seeing in whiteout conditions? Or were they off to the side being cared for? How do we 'know' all was well when the decision to dig in was made?

I can't help but remember being gassed in the Marines for the sole purpose of experiencing what its like to not have oxygen any more and how desperate you become to het away from it. God forbid you have methanol laced clothing fuming up a tent, or you start a fire only to find out it was a really bad idea once the fire ignites your socks etc just a bit too easily. I also can't help but wonder what happens to snow when covered in the substance....

Lots to thinks about...... No tunnel vision for me thanks.

"Paradoxical undressing is a term for a phenomenon frequently seen in cases of lethal hypothermia. Shortly before death, the person will remove all their clothes, as if they were burning up, when in fact they are freezing."

Perhaps they just thought they were warm.... Eh Nigel? WE JUST DONT KNOW

Say it Nigel... Say after me...

MY THEORY ONLY WORKS IF THE GALAXY ALIGNS JUST RIGHT AND 300 UNKNOWNS ARE TWISTED INTO FACT. ALL FOR THE SAKE OF PRESERVING A NARRATIVE MY INTELLECTUALLY SUPERIOR ASS IS PUSHING.

Say it.... Show me that testicular fortitude.

The den...

Welp, to me it looks rather small.... Say 1.5m in British measurements. (Wink) . And the hole/shaft depicted in the photos was dug by the search team. They could have done as Nigel says and dug a cave type shelter from the side of an existing snow bank, but he gets all wonky wonky with the wild BL explosions that throws people meters through away but yet somehow leaves the den flooring of twigs and clothing fully in tact. I don't buy it...... I am very sceptical of the den to begin with..... If it was soo deeply buried, how did the search party know it was even there!?!? I don't buy the trail of clothing lead them to it.... It was buried... Under meters of snow. As in... They follow breadcrumbs that lead into a ravine and miraculously know the exact dead center place to dig? THATS AMAZING!!! I have read reports that the whole den thing was basically made up... Basically the searchers collected twigs the found chopped by the group, and their clothing, then dug a hole and said looky... this is what they must have done here!

The unfortunate fact is... You really cannot put too much into the den conundrum. Too many variables and not nearly enough information. Of course, that leaves an open door to conspiracy theorist that need to fill massive holes in their Swiss-cheese storyline of fictional fantasy.

"So why go up there? Why not head for the forest"

I told you already... Its common knowledge these hikers were on the trip in the first place to earn another merit badge, and digging in under extreme conditions on the side of a mountain was not only bragging rights, but would render Igor the talk of the club (and possibly the ladies (Zina).

Besides... Its also well known he was running behind getting bogged down in the deep snow of the lowlands. One trek up the backside of that ridge and they were home free skiing around the parameter of the mountain slop. NOT bogged down in the forest they died in.

Most of this stuff is just a matter of common sense Nigel... No conspiracy to document the elusive god particle with futuristic cameras need apply.
Loose-Cannon 20-09-2017 03:49 (GMT)
There ya go again Nigel.... Telling lies!!

For anyone not aware... Nigel found a web page article (BL god particle) where some asshat claims a reporter (city folk) came onto the ridge and noticed the snow was crusty on top (seen it a million times from the actions of the sun), so the author takes a well known picture from the tent location, circles an area in red, and claims it was a BL 'hot spot'!! Wow... Its like wow, but backwards!

Now every chance Nigel gets, he claims there was undoubtedly a 'hot spot' and speaks of it as if it were facts. What a freakin joke. Its the exact same thing with the bird story.... Rescue team caught their dinner turns into dead birds everywhere!! Same stupid article!!! Burnt tree tops and trunks..... Yup, same elaborate hoax stated somewhere obscure that Nigel preaches as fact only because he wants it so badly.

All rubbish, and he knows it.

@Nigel,
"No notebooks of men were found by the rescue. There could be written some previous events or recording ongoing situation. These notebooks could have been destroyed immediately or removed.”
(I like to add that there is a certain proof that Sakharova is accurate in this assumption. If one reads Vladimir Aslinadaze’s testimony which can be found here it is pretty obvious that at least Zolotariov’s notebook was found at the scene. Askinadze was present there, he is the one who actually found the last 4 bodies. – S.O.)?"

@Lyndasez - "Think like a hiker... if you are in the darkness, you leave a beacon behind to lead you back. You don't go out in the dead of night undressed an leave a unlit flashlight behind for potty purposes."
Maybe that was it's purpose, to be the beacon. I'm just giving a reason for it being on the outside of the tent. Don't forget there were 9 people inside that tent sleeping, if each one needs to find the flashlight in the middle of the night that's 9 times through the night. Better to leave it outside in a nominated place?

"Well if it's a cave, what happened to the roof, and why are the 9ft walls perfectly chiseled?"
Err they dug down a few metres to find the den? That's how they dug the walls?

"....and off the top of my head, Zinas pockets were turned out, seems to me someone was searching them...where are the men's notebooks? "

Just to drive this in :-
"the last photos show they were in storm, high winds, whiteout conditions.

So why go up there? Why not head for the forest? "

They weren't lost, ID recorded in the diary the previous night his doubts as to this plan - "It is hard to imagine such a comfort somewhere on the ridge, with a piercing wind, hundreds kilometers away from human settlements"

It's really wierd, their plan was to go up in that weather and camp just under the ridge, not knowing how long the bad weather would last...
KMM 19-09-2017 23:16 (GMT)
Nigel: Imo it has to be a snowcave not a more open structure

When the snow began to fall off gradually and the scraps of clothes were revealed, the search engines once again surveyed the terrain 75 meters from Cedar - that ravine where the landslide had descended.

Down the creek, at a depth of more than 2.5 m, cut clothes were found lying on an ordinary heap of branches (possibly collected for a fire), which for some reason will be called "decking"

The official report says YK's knife was found nearby so they had a tool to cut the wood with which to dig into a snowbank.. The photo of the den suggests 4 seats and it maybe RS was there to. I'd say more like 7x7ft.

Where do you get this? from Ivanov's ramblings? About all reports I've read say all but the penknife was found in the tent.
Nigel Evans 19-09-2017 23:03 (GMT)
@Lyndasez - you mean the turned off flashlight on the tent? I've suggested that it could have been there as the "toilet flashlight" for trips in the night. Hence it was turned off. Might have moved/rolled with the wind flapping the tent perhaps.

Got a feeling SZ wouldn't agree with you. Imo it has to be a snowcave not a more open structure, too cold and NTB's gloves were in his pocket and AK's jacket unzipped. They were fairly warm.

Still doesn't answer...who turned off that flashlight? Had enough juice to light for the search party. And why panic if a light is hovering outside, may as well grab some shoes on the way out if you're done for!

That den was not dug by them...sorry, they may have fashioned a seat but that's all I'll give you..

Anna/Lyndasez - All you could want to know about BL - http://www.ball-lightning.info/Ball-lightning/Ball_lightning.html .

N.B. "GLO" stands for "Globular Light-emitting Object", it's not immediately obvious and is a bit confusing.
Nigel Evans 19-09-2017 22:21 (GMT)
@Anna - there's differently types of BL, Hessdalen lights have been observed for 1 hour visible and several hours at radar wavelengths. The 2012 trip talk of it lasting 4 1/2 hours. It would be correct to say that all the other eye witness accounts from 1959 talk of DP lights of a few minutes. Please don't start comparing Siberian lights to those produced by thunderstorms.

@Lyndasez
"Den looks like the product of a backhoe"
some stout branches in that picture. Maybe WW2 vets know more about this than you or i.

they did this in a pitch dark storm!?
not if there was an object as bright as the full moon up on the hill or a missing torch or maybe from the fire.

If this BL is the sort that hovers in place awaiting prey..
BL isn't sentient?

This is madness!
Funnily enough the BL theory doesn't get everyone's vote....
Anna Yordanova 19-09-2017 22:08 (GMT)
Nigel , I have read that the life of a BL is only about 10 sec(the time for the ions to disperse on the ground).Do you think that all of what you are saying could happen in such a short period of time? I don`t understand why do you consider these glowing orbs to be BL, when first of all there are no factors ,indicating the appearance of them. No storm was reported in the area that night.

The official report says YK's knife was found nearby so they had a tool to cut the wood with which to dig into a snowbank.. The photo of the den suggests 4 seats and it maybe RS was there to. I'd say more like 7x7ft.

"The key to all this is why'd they leave the tent orderly it seems without proper clothes...but have the presence of mind to leave a beacon back????? ", Ah that's the beauty of the BL theory. Fits all the facts here like a glove (almost).

They had to flee it hovering just outside at the hotspot.
But once a little way away they could relax and walk for the forest to beat the windchill.
Whilst the BL hovered at the tent they couldn't return.
When it left they'd need a beacon to assist returning.
When they got to the cedar it was still back there so they made a fire.
Probably SZ disagreed with the fire and recommended a den as his WW2 experience.
The BL moved down the hill and exploded in the ravine with enough force to throw the rav4 several metres and kill birds, maybe leaving RS injured. AK's autopsy is cause for concern here. The deformed neck (snapped) would fit the above but the pathologist never investigated it?
ID, ZK and RS are only survivors, they tend to the injured stripping 2yuris and moving clothing from LD to SZ.
BL now gone so ZK and RS try and return to tent for supplies but they're climbing into the microwaves and find it debilitating, RS collapses first, ZK puts his cap on the back of his head and continues but also expires.
Later ID realises that they're not returning and tries to return but expires. N.B. RS and ID are not found in the classic foetal position of dying from cold.

The only bit that doesn't fit perfectly is what happened to the 2yuris, they have to die and be turned (stripped) sometme later after the lividity has frozen in. It would be nice to say the explosion threw them out of the tree onto the fire but the it doesn't suit the timeline, has to be something else earlier.
Lyndasez 19-09-2017 21:04 (GMT)
A simple fix if this was covert, to say, winter storm, some were sent out to look for shelter from the wind, didn't come back...they were struck by lighting, others froze searching...
But Svetlana, who worked with Ivanov, I believe, said, his first instinct was murder till he saw the RAV4...whatever that means...

All fair points but there are the facts, SZ attached to the group even he had nothing to do with the university, they went up to the ridge in a snowstorm even though ID records in the diary the previous night he has concerns. So what was going on? Why on earth would any group of experienced skiers elect to spend the night above the treeline is those conditions instead of staying with the planned route? They didn't know how long the snowstorm would last, it could have been days... So this a key piece of the mystery imo.

Dozens of sites say so, google it!

"On February 1, a snowstorm moved in, and the group lost their way -- instead of maintaining their heading toward Dyatlov Pass, they veered west, toward the peak of Kholat Syakhi. At some point they realized their mistake, but instead of retracing their path, they chose to camp on the mountainside and wait out the storm."

The thyroid gland holds radiation levels 200 times higher then other organs... Its THE organ to test if testing for radiation exposure. It either wasn't tested, or the results were hidden. Pretty significant imho.

Statements from LD's autopsy :-

The position of the internal organs is regular, the pleural cavities contain up to one and a half litres of liquid dark blood.

and

Based on the forensic examination of the corpse of Ms. L.A. Dubinina I think that the death of Ms. Dubinina was caused by massive haemorrhage into the right ventricle, multiple bilateral rib fractures, and internal bleeding into the thoracic cavity. The said damage was probably caused by an impact of great force causing severe closed lethal trauma to the chest of Ms. Dubinina. The trauma was caused during life and is the result of high force impact with subsequent fall, throw or bruise to the chest of Ms. Dubinina.

Statements from SZ's autopsy :-

The pleural cavities contained up to one litre of liquid dark blood.

and

Based on the examination of the corpse of Mr. Zolotariov, 37 years old, I think that he died due to multiple fractures of the right ribs with internal haemorrhaging to the pleural cavity while at a low temperature. The above-mentioned multiple fractures of Zolotariev’s ribs with haemorrhaging into the pleural cavity were caused in vivo as an effect of a high-power impact to the chest of Zolotariev at the moment of his fall, squeezing or throwing.

Sandy 19-09-2017 18:30 (GMT)
I do believe there was plenty among the group to squabble over. From the numerous diary entries I post a while back to the indications I see Zina being a big tease and likely leading Igor on..... to top it all off she brought here 'ex lover' Yuri along for the trip. I think she was still fairly close to Yuri and getting the same string-along as Igor. There are loads of prior DPI photos of Zina and Yuri on previous hikes etc. From what I understand, Yuri was the only boy she ever brought home to meet her parents. Written by LC


@L.C. I find this offensive as there is nothing written about her being a tease. Yuri was NOT her "ex lover". Zina was still a virgin as well as Luda. Zina wrote in her diary that Yuri had been "holding hands with a girl from the other group" & how she felt jealous. Zina had nothing to do with Yuri wanting to come along. She wrote in her diary she wasn't sure how she'd feel. Zina still had feelings for Yuri. So she wasn't "stringing him along at all".


She like the attention of boys.... if ya know what Im sayin. No, LC, I don't know wtf you're trying to say.


I disagree with this & find it offensive to Zina as well. There is no truth in this. Her & Yuri went out a few times & he quit seeing her. She was a virgin as I stated b/4. She was irritated with Igor because he made her sleep next to the stove the nite b/4. Perhaps it was her turn.

"And what if they have diverged from the course, due to poor visibility and came across the bunker by accident?"

Anna, this is certainly littered with possibilities. Given that the Kyshtym Accident, a nuclear incident happened in Sept '57 in southern Urals an no one knew it till the '80s.

I've read the notebooks for the men are missing, or sewn up in a Top Secret file, so I think they are hiding many things.

Nigel Evans 19-09-2017 15:13 (GMT)
@Lyndasez - yes the existence of the building has already been discussed as has that the date of it's construction is key to it's consideration. The group could only progress with their trip by seeking permission. I can't see how it would be granted if there was a secret establishment nearby. It's a red herring. "A paranormal researcher believes it was testing neutron weapons". Hmmm time to blow it off again! Happy
Lyndasez 19-09-2017 15:02 (GMT)
"what's your source for that info about the bunker?"

I posted this a couple of days ago. You blew it off as being previously covered......

A mysterious object was discovered near the site, where tourists died when trying to cross the Dyatlov Pass. Amateur radio engineer and researcher of paranormal phenomena Valentin Degtyarev believes that the structure that was found on the site may have a connection with the tragedy that took place there in the winter of 1959.
It goes about a construction 25-30 meters long and 10-15 meters wide. The construction was found at a distance of ten kilometers from the site, when a group of tourists died in 1959. The construction, Degtyarev believes, could be a part of a bunker that had been built in the Ural mountains during the times of the Cold War.
The researcher assumes that the group of tourists could find themselves on the pass the day when neutron weapons were tested. This may explain the presence of radioactive substances on the clothes of one of the victims. The death of the tourists could be a reason, for which the tests were wrapped up. The underground building was blown up and mothballed. The upper part of the bunker is still visible on satellite images.
The Dyatlov Pass is considered to be one of the most mysterious areas of tourist routes in the Urals. In February 1959, nine skiers of a tourist club were killed near Mount Otorten under unclear circumstances. Igor Dyatlov was the leader of the group. The bodies that were subsequently found on the site shocked forensic experts: most of the people froze to death, whereas traces on the bodies of other victims indicated that they had died violent deaths.
The pass was named in memory of the tourist group led by Igor Dyatlov. Some researchers believe that the tourists died as a result of an explosion of a ballistic missile.
According to ex-governor of the Sverdlovsk region, Senator Eduard Rossel, the tragedy on the Dyatlov Pass still remains strictly classified information.

@Lyndasez - what's your source for that info about the bunker?
Lyndasez 19-09-2017 14:41 (GMT)
"agreed the clothing indicates much higher levels of contamination but where did it come from?"

@Nigel, quite possibly from the underground bunker (neutron bomb testing) they recently found, mothballed, but was active in the 50s. It was 6 miles from their campsite or..YK brought some of his work home with him..on clothes...working with plutonium.
Nigel Evans 19-09-2017 14:32 (GMT)
@Lyndasez - agreed the clothing indicates much higher levels of contamination but where did it come from? Yudin was a geologist collecting rocks, the area had uranium deposits so could just be accidental contamination from dust or even from the stream. Given that none of this clothing contamination seems to have affected the tested tissues then the chances that testing the thyroid would show anything different is an extreme longshot imo. I've discounted the radiation as a not productive avenue for consideration.

Just found this :-
I had similar records of interviews with witnesses Novikov, Avenburg, Malik. The same orb was sighted on 31 March. An identical orb was viewed on the night of the tourists death, that is, on the night of 1 to 2 February, by tourists – students of the Geography faculty of the Pedagogical Institute. Witness G.Atamanaki saw an orb over the Otorten on the night of 1 February.

On February 17, I and Vladimir Shevkunov got up at 6.00 in the morning to prepare breakfast for the group. After splitting the fire and making everything necessary, they waited for the food to be ready. The sky was cloudy, there were no clouds and no clouds, but there was a slight haze, which usually dissipates with the rising of the sun. Sitting face to the north and accidentally turning his head to the east, he saw that a milky white blur about 5-6 lunar in diameter and a series of concentric circles consisting of a row of them had spread in the sky at a height (...?). It resembled a halo around the moon in a clear frosty weather. I made a comment to my partner, that's how they painted the moon. He thought and said that in the first moon there is no, and besides, it should be on the other side. From the moment we noticed this phenomenon took 1-2 minutes, how long it lasted before



Sheet 212


and how did I initially do not know. At this moment, at the very center of this spot, an asterisk flared up, which for a few seconds remained the same size, and then began to increase sharply in size and rapidly move in a western direction. Within a few seconds, she grew to the size of the moon, and then tearing off the smoke screen or clouds appeared a huge milk disc of milky color, 2-2.5 lunar in diameter, surrounded by the same rings of pale color. Then, remaining the same size, the ball began to fade until it merged with the surrounding halo, which in turn spread out across the sky and went out. It was dawn. The clock was 6.57, the phenomenon lasted no more than a half minutes and produced a very uneasy impression. Initially, we did not pay attention to it, but then, when the glowing disk itself appeared, they were amazed. Personally, I had the impression that some heavenly body was falling in our direction, then, when it had grown to such enormous dimensions, a thought flashed through, another planet came into contact with the earth, that now a collision would follow and nothing would remain of all earthly things. We were already awake for more than an hour, so we could retire after sleeping and not believe in hallucinations, but in the end everything was as hypnotized and only when


(illegible)

I do not know how Karelin managed to jump out of the sleeping bag at lightning speed and run out into the street wearing socks in his underwear. He managed to see the disc losing its outline and the bright spot spreading across the sky. I had to talk a lot with eyewitnesses and most people describe this case in approximately the same way and adds that the light from him was so strong that people in homes were awakened from sleep.


To be fair to McCloskey he is working from the translation of the Way of Lenin article which seems to be the source of the error.

READ THE DAMN CASE FILE!

The statement regarding.....

"The absence of appropriate instruments and conditions in the laboratory made it impossible to perform radiochemical and spectrometric analysis to determine the chemical structure of the emitter and its radiation energy."

Is taken from this paragraph in its entirety...

"Experimental washing of clothes showed that the contamination
is removed, the percentage of washing varies from 30% to 60% (washing clothes was done in running cold water for 3 hours). When determining the type of radiation, it is established that the activity takes place due to beta particles. Alpha particles and gamma quanta were not detected. The absence of appropriate instruments and conditions in the laboratory made it impossible to perform radiochemical and spectrometric analysis to determine the chemical structure of the emitter and its radiation energy. Radiometric measurements of solid biosubstrates were carried out on a B-2 installation (No. 2554) in a lead house with a BFA-25 meter. The unit was measured using a strontium preparation with an activity of 1) 7000 rpm, 2) 2000 rpm. The results of measurements of samples from No. 1,2,3,4 are summarized in Table No. 1 (see on the back)"


THIS PARAGRAPH IS THE SUMMARY OF THE FINDINGS ON THE CLOTHING ONLY!!!!

THE SUMMARY OF THE TISSUE SAMPLES ARE AFTER THE READINGS ON THEM, AND IT STATES NO SUCH NONSENSE!


" Control samples were obtained from the forensic medical expert of Dr. Renaissance. The samples of the tissues of a person who died in the accident of a
motor vehicle in the city of Sverdlovsk, also showed the presence of a natural radiological element of potassium-40 in approximately the same
amounts as in Table 1.


Thus, the results of the studies in Tables 1 and 3 do not exceed the averaged data on the content of radioactive substances in human organs and may be due to

natural radioactive Potassium-40. Radiation by type refers to the Beta-
particles. Alpha particles and gamma quanta were not detected.
CONCLUSIONS:
1) The solid biosubstrates studied contain radioactive substances within the natural content determined by Kali-40. 2) The individual samples of clothing examined contain several inflated quantities of radioactive substances or radioactive material, which is a beta emitter. 3) Detected radioactive substances or radioactive substances when washing clothing samples tend to flush, i.e. are caused not by a neutron flux and induced radioactivity, but by radioactive contamination with beta particles.

So they didnt do a radio'chemical' test to determine the chemical structure of the emitter.... so what! It was beta and measured.
Nigel Evans 18-09-2017 14:38 (GMT)
@LC - lots of stuff there to answer, i'll come back later on might even be tomorrow. You're wrong about the radiation tests :-
Under the orders of Investigator Ivanov, an examination was made of the clothes of some expedition members, in order to determine if there was any radioactive contamination on the clothes or the dead bodies. To order a radiological examination was by no means a regular part of the investigative process. The examination was conducted on May 18, in a poorly equipped city laboratory, almost ten days after the last funeral. Vladimir Levashov, the main radiologist of Yekaterinburg, conducted the examination. Levashov’s report reads: ‘The absence of adequate equipment and the conditions in our laboratory did not allow us to conduct radiochemical and spectrometric analysis for defining the chemical structure of the emitter and measuring the energy of its emission.’ It’s possible that in May, Ivanov received some information or an order to conduct this examination. It’s also possible this was done on his own initiative. If it had been ordered from above, the examination would have taken place in the best possible laboratory, which, at that time in the USSR, would have been in a military institution. As it was, Ivanov contacted the rescue party member Albert Kikoin whose brother, Isaak Kikoin, was in charge of a national laboratory for studying radiation. Levashov was warned that this investigation was to be a matter of secrecy and he signed a document to confirm he wouldn’t release the information to anyone but the investigator. He was provided with all the clothes of Zolotariov, Dubinina, Kolevatov, and Tibeaux, as well as bio-culture samples of their bodies.

@Lyndasez -
"As I understood it there was no bruising (bleeding) caused by the horrific crushed chest, otherwise he died from it, which is it, since there's ...ahem, no coverup, he died from freezing or crushed chest?"
Yes there wasn't any bruising but there was internal bleeding. When you go to a restaurant and order ribs, you're getting the tissue surrounding the actual bone to eat. When the rib cage suffers a massive fracture as in these injuries then that tissue is ripped and bleeds whilst the heart continues to beat. So a pathologist is trained to look at how extensive the trauma is and collect the volume of blood and estimate the how long the bleeding was before the person died and it stopped. From memory one of them had a litre of bleeding which takes a while.

"They didn't wait because parents and other students and interested parties were gonna conduct their own search! Too bad they didn't!"
Well first they wouldn't be going anywhere without state permission and even if they did get it (which they wouldn't because the state had concerns about defection), for a prolonged investigation they would need a supply chain. Pretty expensive business definately best left to the resources of the state.

"many times greater"

These clothing articles were glow-in-the-dark radiated prior to being washed in the creek. Makes you wonder why the first 5 were not tested. Or were they and the results were hidden..... Its also interesting to note the helicopter crew refused to fly out the bodies of the rav4 until proper radiation protective body bags were obtained. The rav4 bodies were not tested as of yet, so how on earth would they have reason to suspect radiation???

Question #4. What do you think, what could be the degree of contamination of individual objects, if you take into account that prior to research they had been in the running water for about 15 days.

Answer: It can be assumed that the contamination of individual garments was many times greater, but here one must take into account that clothes could be washed unevenly, that is, with varying degrees of intensity."

THEY WERE IN THE STREAM A LOT LONGER THEN 15 DAYS..... You do the math.

"Probably assumed freezing."

"The radiation testing was done privately by a friend on his own initiative EVEN though he had been ordered to wrap up the case.... Afaik it was only on the clothing. The pathologist took tissue samples for further analysis but i don't know of any radiation testing."

Unless of course your the head of an investigation regarding 4 missing people. How does he know they are dead? Alot of presuming if you ask me. FYI, there were TWO other signatures required on that document other then Ivanovs..... Neither would sign off on it!

"Not sure black and white photography would have been much use. Could have been a practical issue, bad weather, then fell through the cracks"

#1 He was reported to be 'out of it' and otherwise not interested while on site.
Maybe he had drunk a bit too much vodka.

#2 Lack of investigation photos etc
Probably the fault of the other guy.

#3 He arrived at the tent AFTER it had beed fubared by in-computation college kids, made an on-the-record report of its state with spicifics, then says that another investigator was there before him so go ask him, the other guys account is very different.
You would have to produce facts for this claim.

#4 He spent all but 5min at each site.
Apparently he didn't visit the site when the rav4 were found which i've remarked upon. But this could have been a hiearchy thing, he had a team of men there full time so they would do the footwork. Don't forget that Ivanov was ordered to Moscow during this investigation and came back "a changed man" there was good reason for him to be fearful for his future if it was a state coverup. I'm not saying it was of course but he would be watching his back pretty hard.

#5 The rav4 bodies were thoroughly washed with chemicals to hide something
I'm not aware of this, they had a vat of alcohol for the staff to wash with.

#6 The Aortas were measured, but he never investigated as to why 3 times larger then normal
Probably assumed freezing.

#7 Nearly every organ of the Rav4 were tested for radiation levels except THE ONE ORGAN that hold the highest concentration.... the thyroid. 200% higher concentration and this isnt 'new' information. He either covered up the results OR he purposely excluded them from the official order. They tested what he asked them to test.... nothing more.
The radiation testing was done privately by a friend on his own initiative EVEN though he had been ordered to wrap up the case.... Afaik it was only on the clothing. The pathologist took tissue samples for further analysis but i don't know of any radiation testing.

#8 He has been all over the map as to who, what, and why..... wonky at best.
Rolls eyes.

#9 The forensic expert and criminalist expert Churkina refused to sign off on the official autopsy, but Ivanov signed..... AS OF TODAY THE AUTOPSY REPORTS ON RAV4 ARE INVALID!. ALL THREE WERE SUPPOSED TO SIGN!! IVANOV WAS NOT INTERESTED IN THE EXPERTS OPINION AND THE TWO EXPERTS REFUSED TO PUT THEIR NAME ON A BOTCHED REPORT! https://image.ibb.co/dFTBya/sme.jpg #10 Ivanov made an official report that all 9 hikers had died..... BEFORE THE RAV4 were found!!!!
Nothing wrong in "Missing presumed dead", interesting that she wouldn't sign, S Oss states that she thought the head pathologist was "afraid".

#11 In 1990 he wrote an article stating that trees had burn marks.... yet THERE HAS NEVER AND WILL NEVER BE ANYTHING ABOUT THAT DOCUMENTED IN THE OFFICIAL REPORTS AND NOTHING OF THE SORT WAS EVER DOCUMENTED>>>>>> GE EITHER BOTCHED THE INVESTIGATION IN 1959, OR HE IS A FREAKING LIAR.... TAKE YOUR PICK.
Not sure black and white photography would have been much use. Could have been a practical issue, bad weather, then fell through the cracks.

#12 HE ORDERED A TEAM TO DIG OUT THE TENT AND ITS CONTENTS WITH AN AXE AND SHOVELS AND THEN DRAG THE TENT OVER ROCKS AND ICE TO THE HELICOPTER.... WITHOUT A SINGLE PHOTO BEING TAKEN OF ITS CONTENTS OR THE LAYOUT AND CONDITION PRIOR TO REMOVAL....... ID LIKE TO POP THIS IDIOT IN THE DING-DONG!
There is one photograph of the tent prior to removal which begs the question why not more? My guess is that they did take them and they've been lost.

#13 He closed the case PREMATURELY!
Once they had the bodies it was wrapped up as it was costing a fortune.

#14 He didnt solve the case.
Not an easy one to solve...

Perhaps, on the bodies it was not simple cadaveric spots, but is written in the JMO could not. The reason for the lack of cadaveric spots on the bodies of the dead might be bleeding of internal organs or blood clotting due to strong radiation.

#3 He arrived at the tent AFTER it had beed fubared by in-computation college kids, made an on-the-record report of its state with spicifics, then says that another investigator was there before him so go ask him, the other guys account is very different.

#4 He spent all but 5min at each site.

#5 The rav4 bodies were thoroughly washed with chemicals to hide something

#6 The Aortas were measured, but he never investigated as to why 3 times larger then normal

#7 Nearly every organ of the Rav4 were tested for radiation levels except THE ONE ORGAN that hold the highest concentration.... the thyroid. 200% higher concentration and this isnt 'new' information. He either covered up the results OR he purposely excluded them from the official order. They tested what he asked them to test.... nothing more.

#8 He has been all over the map as to who, what, and why..... wonky at best.

#9 The forensic expert and criminalist expert Churkina refused to sign off on the official autopsy, but Ivanov signed..... AS OF TODAY THE AUTOPSY REPORTS ON RAV4 ARE INVALID!. ALL THREE WERE SUPPOSED TO SIGN!! IVANOV WAS NOT INTERESTED IN THE EXPERTS OPINION AND THE TWO EXPERTS REFUSED TO PUT THEIR NAME ON A BOTCHED REPORT! https://image.ibb.co/dFTBya/sme.jpg

#10 Ivanov made an official report that all 9 hikers had died..... BEFORE THE RAV4 were found!!!!

#11 In 1990 he wrote an article stating that trees had burn marks.... yet THERE HAS NEVER AND WILL NEVER BE ANYTHING ABOUT THAT DOCUMENTED IN THE OFFICIAL REPORTS AND NOTHING OF THE SORT WAS EVER DOCUMENTED>>>>>> GE EITHER BOTCHED THE INVESTIGATION IN 1959, OR HE IS A FREAKING LIAR.... TAKE YOUR PICK.

#12 HE ORDERED A TEAM TO DIG OUT THE TENT AND ITS CONTENTS WITH AN AXE AND SHOVELS AND THEN DRAG THE TENT OVER ROCKS AND ICE TO THE HELICOPTER.... WITHOUT A SINGLE PHOTO BEING TAKEN OF ITS CONTENTS OR THE LAYOUT AND CONDITION PRIOR TO REMOVAL....... ID LIKE TO POP THIS IDIOT IN THE DING-DONG!

#13 He closed the case PREMATURELY!

#14 He didnt solve the case.

Thats off the top of my head and I am SURE there are other!......... Your daddy was a full blown IDIOT or, he intentionally botched, covered, mislead, and otherwise created wild goose chases.

"To carry out the investigation, the young investigator VI Korotaev. was given a rugged tent, torn by search engines, which was placed in the Lenin room. http://image.ibb.co/mO7xia/pal0.jpg The tent was in terrible condition, with multiple tears and cuts, in some places there were punctured and burned holes, and 2 large pieces of canvas were cut / torn from its side. It is impossible to imagine how it was possible to conduct research on the tent, after it was ruined by search students.

Earlier, I noted that the actions of student search engines who parried the tent and injured her, no one controlled, so for the investigation it was incorrect to investigate the state of the tent in the Lenin room.

Thus, during the study of the tent, as prosecutor Ivdel Tempalov VI claimed, there were no incisions in the tent.
However, it is worth noting that on the windy side, ie. from the side of the spur, the tent was torn in the middle part, and, as Tempalov noted, it was brought at first glance by dense snow. This is the only place where Tempalov discovered damages in the tent, which means there were no cuts from which the tourists were escaping from the tent, there was no tent!

Sections and huge holes in the tent on the other side of the spur appeared after Tempalov VI. He examined the tent and instructed the students to collect it and all the things and load it into the helicopter. The tent was frozen to dense snow, so the students cut out and pulled it out of the frozen snow and ice.
Then, according to the testimonies of the search engines, the tent dragged to the helicopter to deliver it to Ivdel for research.

Those who saw the tent after the search engine students "worked" with it attributed the cuts made by the search engines to Igor Dyatlov's group. Then, based on this false "fact", a legend was invented that Igor Dyatlov's group cut the tent during its departure.

In fact, the tent was intact and the group left it in an organized manner. Things were all brought into the tent, and the entrance to the tent was closed.
The tent itself was not torn by the wind, and only from one side, from the side of the spur, it was pressed down by dense snow, resulting in a large rupture, the reason for the appearance of which just needed to be thoroughly explored ..."


Would ya imagine that!!..... dense snow build on one side pressing down causing a rupture, along comes the students ripping, tearing, shovels and axe!

I said it once, Ill say it again. For all we know they never 'fled in panic' to begin with and its HIGHLY unlikely they were 'observing' anything outside the tent in whiteout conditions.... remember this?? http://image.ibb.co/fsd69F/dtyjdty.jpg

"Tempalov photographed the camera and instructed her to disassemble, put things in their backpacks and move them to the camp ...
We disassembled a ten-man tent covered with a hard snow with shovels!

According to the former judge of Ivdel in 1959 Novokreschenova GV. Korotaev V.I. said that ... "the tent was covered with snow, and the snow was very hard. I had to use an ax, cut it with an ax and, of course, crippled it."

At the same time, there was no system to free the tent from snow. First they took out a few stale blankets, then buckets, a stove, two or three sacks of biscuits, shoes and other things. Things were stacked in backpacks, and dragged the tent to the search engine camp.
Naturally, after such manipulations on the tent, sections and torn pieces could appear."

BINGO..... a complete mishandling of evidence. NOW YOU TELL ME NIGEL... If this tent was flap flap flappin in gale force winds for weeks and a chunk tore back starting at an existing tear/hole OR a student (amateurs first on scene) ripped it open (you admitted they did) and the section was PEALED BACK..... You get after that tent digging it out of hard snow with an AXE AND SHOVEL..... THE CUTS WILL NOW BE ON THE INSIDE OF THE CANVAS THAT WAS PEALED BACK AND COVERED IN SNOW!!!! WOW... Freaking amazeballs!!!
Loose-Cannon 17-09-2017 22:36 (GMT)
" In the tent was impossible to shove; all of it was covered with snow and how things were located it was possible to consider only when digging it. The tent was installed capitally. On the snow was prepared a level platform, on the snow laid skiing surface up, on them the bottom of the tent was already lying. In the tent below were laid quilted jackets (aside from the slope), backpacks empty were laid out on the tent. In the same side of the tent (to the slope) each lay personal things."

Right.... I see whats going on here. The items were removed while DIGGING IT... LIKE WITH A FREAKING SHOVEL!! Talking about eye level cut.... Just what is the shovel-head width comparison to those slits Nigel..... Hmmmmmmm?? Think McFly!
Loose-Cannon 17-09-2017 22:33 (GMT)
"On the second day, search groups were organized, and I with the prosecutor Tempalov and with him a man of up to 10 went to excavate the tent.
The tent was discovered on the slope of the peak "1079", 100-150 m from the top to the northeast. At first glance, the tent seemed snowed, but when we looked at it, we saw that the tent on the entrance side held on to the central peg and was well reinforced with ropes. Another of its edges, too, stayed on the wheel, but since The middle of the tent was covered with snow, and the skylights of the tent on the windward side were severely torn, then the edge sank and was under the snow."

You read that?? "skylights of the tent on the windward side were severely torn" WINDWARD SIDE WAS TORN
So with all this talk of high ass winds etc and statements like this..... You telling me there is NO CHANCE of the darn tent ripping from flap flap flappin in the winds for WEEKS rubbing on god knows what inside?? I call major BS man, MAJOR BS!

Loose-Cannon 17-09-2017 22:30 (GMT)
"Prosecutor Tempalov VI in the presence of AA Chernyshov. and witnesses examined the tent of tourists, compiled a survey report and photographed the tent after all the "investigative" events held two days earlier by the students.

After such actions the students, of course, the tent lost its original appearance, and the consequence of no trace near the tent could no longer detect. The snow around the tent was strewn with search engines, and the tracks were sprinkled ...

In the report of the inspection of the tent, Tempalov, in particular, noted that the stretches of the tent on the south side were intact, while the stretches of the tent on the north side were torn off and the whole second half of the tent was covered with snow. The tent was installed on a level platform excavated by students, with a windy side it was torn in the middle part. In his testimony, Tempalov did not say a word about the tent sections, because there were no incisions!

Tempalov wrote that in the right corner of the tent near the entrance lay food and a flask empty from alcohol or vodka (the smell was felt) and that he had the impression that the students drank vodka and had a snack. This was the first version and an attempt by the investigative authorities to falsify the cause of the death of tourists.

In the blood of students, alcohol was not detected (methyl alcohol - not alcohol, but poison)."

@Lyndasez - "How about a moose used them as footpath post mortem?! ... "
Because the pathologist would have spotted the lack of internal bleeding with the two chest fractures (unless he's lying as per coverup). The internal bleeding gives him a rough time as to how long they lived after the trauma. LD circa 15min, SZ longer. Incidentally that fits with the transfer of clothing from LD to SZ. Assuming the autopsy is genuine then they died of those injuries.
But if they wanted to hide the cause of death, why not wait until the summer? They'd come back to find just skeletons spread all over the mountain by predators.
What are they going to measure that isn't known?
I don't think you're factoring the high winds and cold, it's a tough place to look for a needle in a haystack.
Also Ivanov came on the scene late after they'd fired the first guy. By then any evidence had been recorded or lost.

Nigel, You neglected to add, "under a powerful microscope."

Like I said, without me seeing the entire negative, it's difficult to determine.. the key is, are we looking at a negative (unprocessed film) or positive (processed) true image.
Nigel Evans 17-09-2017 17:09 (GMT)
@Lyndasez - the edges of the frames could be clearly seen.


A brief first look showed nothing unusual. The light was so low that the edges of each frame could not be seen. What could be seen on the negatives were small black dots and some very small pale dots. To the human eye, these dots could not be identified. These dots were nothing like the much larger frame of the bright orb. The presence of the ten frames taken one after another showed that something in the night sky had attracted Zolotarev’s attention and he took picture after picture of it. Once this ten frame strip was scanned and examined under a powerful microscope, the edges of the frames could be clearly seen. Under magnification the frames showed fine bright and dull dots with lines which resembled the tracks of signal flares. The magnification also showed up very fine particles of dirt which had either been on the frame originally or had been picked up off the surface of the scanner. A comparison was made to the earlier frames in the 17 frame strip to see if there were any particles which matched the two frames exactly. That way, these objects or particles could be discarded, as they showed up in every frame.

In addition, there is a seldomly seen photo of them in perfect weather traversing the back side of the ridge.... But your not interested in that sorta stuff now are ya my little buddy. It is also said that Igor and the bunch would have loved to practice their skills and earn a certain level of bragging rights by digging in under those conditions and altitude.

Nope.... Completely blinded by AL contributing factors. Your only going to see what you want to see. You cannot be helped... Its like a disease.

(@Lyndasez - i'm not a photography expert but googling say ""35mm sprocket holes" i can find images were the whole film including sprocket holes has been exposed. Hence i assume it is camera dependent some will limit the frame to between the holes some won't.
So a good point but inconclusive?)

@Nigel, that is manipulated film. Examples:

?... convert your Lubitel+ into a 35mm machine with the included “Lubikin” set – allowing you to snap vertical panoramic images with exposed sprocket holes.?

16mm film fed through a 35mm gate (so you can see the sprocket holes in the film) on a Sony film scanner, hand-cranked for variance in speed.

Kodak Brownie Target Six-16 with expired roll of 35mm Kodak Portra 160NC. I thought I would shoot sprocket hole photos with this camera rather than respooling 120 film...

The process is pretty easy -- just cushion the roll of 35mm with foam, customize your 120 take up spool with some format reducing rubber bands, and tape the heck out of the camera.
A general rule of thumb when winding between shots is to go 34 clicks. Frame spacing will be tight at the beginning of the roll, and then you'll have gaps as you get towards the end. Nicolai over at Photon Detector has an excellent winding chart for getting more even frame spacing and being efficient with your film. Some people even tape a winding chart to the back of the camera. Just cross out each exposure as you go.
And if you're tired of carrying a changing bag to unwind your 35mm film in complete darkness, Randy over at Holgamods sells a 35mm Holga conversion that allows you to rewind the film in the camera. I can't wait to do some sprocket Holga night photography!

Otherwise if the weather was bad then they'd be better off in the forest?

You see if i was there i'd be saying something like, "Guys and girls, we've got to get up early and have a big hike today staying in the forest where the trees will negate any whiteout from the high winds, that way we can catch up on the plan.".

Thats all you have... Really??

Its a well known little fact they were behind schedule and taking that slight deviation would have kept them out of the deep snow and harder to traverse wooded areas of the lowland. This kept them in open terrain and the following day would be mostly down-hill. It also cut the corner off the route which would additionally make up some time. This isn't rocket science Nigel.... No conspiracy required.
Nigel Evans 17-09-2017 15:15 (GMT)
@LC - "Zero evidence what so ever..... completely fabricated conjecture. "

The last entry in the diary (by the group leader) strongly supports the view that they were deviating from the planned route through the forest to use the ridge instead.
So there's a piece of evidence = FACT 1.
FACT 2 = this decision would involve significant discomfort as the stove couldn't be used. Plus there was risk from such an exposed camp. Very high winds etc as ID indicates in his entry.

So we have two FACTS that support the theory that they chose the ridge even though it would be uncomfortable and potentially unsafe.

So now all it takes is to find the unstated motive for this decision. I opt for photographing the lights. You are welcome to posit another theory (good luck).

It would be good to know the magnification used on the Eagle1 photo as that's a key piece of evidence as it matches the meteorologists report, as is that Ivanov records in that interview that a light was seen near Otorten the night of Feb 1-2.

Whether Ivanov believed in fairies/aliens/yeti isn't important to the BL theory, what's important is that he can see that they went there to photograph a light, there was a light there that night and there is a group of photos from several cameras that could support this (but agreed there's ambiguity).

I have downloaded likely hundreds of photos. Mainly of the actual diaries, and the kids 'official papers' if anyone would like my to upload a particular diary, or someones documents to my photosharing, and post them here... just let me know.

In addition, I came across several pictures of the group members bot before and during that I doubt everyone has seen.... if interested

Oh, quality color scans of the tent fabric file also.

"The effect of the lights made him fearful and his instinct told him not to look at them."

The interview I read.... he was scared shitless.


"For me the important point is that he (as the police detective on the case looking at all the evidence) connected the DPI with fireballs"

Nigel... you have ONE biased book 'hinting' at this, while on the other hand ALL other reports have him in clearly the Alien category. I know this book must have had a profound effect on you, but you just have to let it go. Come into the light and back down to earth... no more tunnel vision, no more 'BL does it all' fantasy. Right now your in a state of denial, this denial is self evident by a continuation of mentality doubling-down on a false narrative in efforts re-convince your own self conscious.

Nigel.... I dont 'need' to tell you I told you so, but on a positive note, I hope you have learned a valuable lesson, can come away from this more open to ideas, and willing to actually look into other possibilities in equal to BL.

This falling apart of the three heads crap is only one part of several wonky aspects of the BL theory that dont hold water. Believe me, I wish it were as easy to definitively conclude it was BL so I can go on with researching something else and may there be some closure to those involved, but this may never be so.
Nigel Evans 17-09-2017 09:51 (GMT)
@KMM - there's conflicting evidence here, but why is it important?
For me the important point is that he (as the police detective on the case looking at all the evidence) connected the DPI with fireballs, not his beliefs in their composition/source. He was a police detective not a physicist.

From Nigel's OWN POST

Lev Ivanov, followed the extra-terrestrial line of explanation. Most policemen tend to be hard-nosed types who have seen it all by the time they have reached the end of a long career in the police and Ivanov had probably seen his share of the worst of human nature in a large city like Sverdlovsk. He could have stuck with one of the more non-contentious theories such as an avalanche, with regards to the Dyatlov deaths, but he chose to keep to the line of them being killed by something out of this world.
Nigel Evans 17-09-2017 08:52 (GMT)
Note - "Yury also said that both he himself and Valentin Rudkovsky had felt very tired and sleepy for days after their encounters with the lights."

@LC - "Im just wondering which it is.... Shit a volvo turn your hair white terrifying, or pet Johns pluffy kitty kitty innocent no reason to fear? "
Putting that through Google Translates - "LC - WTF" option i get "why are some witnesses scared and others are not"?

Lets hear from the guy himself :-

Although I had managed to get back to Ekaterinburg ahead of the group at the Dyatlov Pass, I had to kick my heels a bit in a manner of speaking as I needed to rest my knee. However, one person I was able to meet with was Yury Yakimov. My translator Marina brought him over to the hotel as he had recovered from the illness which had prevented him from coming with us to the Dyatlov Pass. When I reproduced Yury Yakimov’s theory in my first book on the Dyatlov Incident, I came in for a certain amount of flak from some quarters with (some) people dismissing his story as nonsense. I keep a very open mind on all theories related to the Dyatlov group deaths for the simple reason that no matter what the theory is, nobody so far has been able to come up with a completely adequate and plausible explanation that answers all the questions. Until that day comes, in my view, one person’s theory is as good as another’s. Equally I do not feel that one person should dismiss another theory if they have no way of proving their own. What attracted me to Yury Yakimov’s theory was the fact that he had experienced something strange in the northern Ural Mountains, not that far from where the members of the Dyatlov group had died. I felt at the very least that he was worth hearing out. The other reason that I felt Yury Yakimov was worth hearing first hand is because he had seen strange lights when he was in the Mountains and strange lights at night is a major part of the Dyatlov mystery. Yury was much fitter and younger looking than I expected when he arrived with Marina. I knew he was retired but he explained that miners retired earlier than other workers in Russia because of the very trying conditions which they worked under. He was currently living just a few miles to the west of Ivdel and had travelled down on the train to meet me and also to meet up with Yury K and others from the group at the Dyatlov Foundation when they returned. He apologised for not being able to go up to the Pass when we travelled as he was too ill. I very much liked his manner. He was polite and spoke in a calm, rational way. Although I had studied his light theory before, I asked him to explain to me what exactly happened to him the first time he saw the lights. It took place at an open mine which was about 120 kilometres south (75 miles) from the Dyatlov Pass and roughly 12 kilometres (7 miles) from Ivdel. He said that he was on his own and it had been an uneventful shift. He was keen to get finished and had never experienced anything strange at the mine workings before. When the lights first switched on, he said it surprised him and the strength of them was so powerful, that it was like a searchlight. There were two lights fairly close together initially and they were in the forest about three hundred metres away from where he was standing in the open-cast mine. As he watched the lights, they started to move towards him very fast and they were moving around. When I asked him what he meant by “moving around” he said that, although they were still pointing in his direction, they were moving as if they were being held by someone and that they had previously been standing still and were now running towards him very fast, still holding the light and trying to keep it pointed towards him as they ran. He said that despite this seeming flurry of movement, there was absolute silence while all this was happening which unnerved him. He said that he felt compelled to look away from the lights because of their strength and, as they were coming towards him, they were dividing so there were more of them. It seemed, from his description, as if there were people running towards him and I asked him if he could make out any shapes or if there were people that he could see in the darkness but he said he could not and that the lights appeared to be on their own. He was dazzled by the lights, of course, so it may not have been that easy to see anything. The effect of the lights made him fearful and his instinct told him not to look at them. I then asked him about the Forest Ranger named Valentin Rudkovsky who had experienced exactly the same phenomenon in the northern Urals. It turned out that when Rudkovsky had seen these lights he was in the forest about 100 kilometres (62 miles) to the west of where Yury Yakimov had seen them and roughly the same distance from the Dyatlov Pass. Interestingly, it was many months before Yury Yakimov learned of Rudkovsky’s sighting of the lights, and when he investigated and spoke to Rudkovsky, it turned out that their individual sightings were less than two weeks apart – 29 August 2002 and 11 September 2002. Rudkovsky had seen the lights in the same manner as Yury and he too felt afraid and had to look away from them even though he was armed with a hunting rifle as part of his equipment for carrying out his duties as a forest ranger. I asked him what kind of a person Valentin Rudkovsky was and he said that he was a very grounded and stoic type of man, not easily flustered, which is why Yury felt his story carried some weight. Rudkovsky had spent years working in the forests, either on his own or in small teams and not a likely candidate to come up with a made up and outlandish story. He was retired now and kept himself to himself but had agreed to meet with Yury Yakimov to tell him what he had seen that night. Despite being a man who had lived and worked in the forests for many years amongst bears and wolves as well as being armed with a rifle, the overwhelming feeling that Rudkovsky had from the lights was one of fear. Yury also said that both he himself and Valentin Rudkovsky had felt very tired and sleepy for days after their encounters with the lights. Yury Yakimov’s opinion was that the members of the Dyatlov group had been killed by some form of energy directed weapon connected with the lights. With regards to the source of the lights in both cases, I asked Yury what he thought could explain the strange lights? He felt that the phenomenon could only have been extra-terrestrial. Once, of course, this kind of explanation is mentioned, some people switch off. Whilst it is not a line I follow, I keep an open mind and really what is required is some kind of solid evidence to back that line of reasoning. Yury Yakimov had tried to bring his story with regard to the lights and possible involvement with the Dyatlov deaths, to the attention of the President’s Office and it had been referred to the Chief Prosecutor’s Office for the Sverdlovsk Oblast (administrative region). They had responded to him that the Dyatlov case had been concluded in 1959 and that there was no need for the case to be reopened. Irrespective of what anyone thinks of what happened to Yury Yakimov and the lights, the stock response of any official authority in Russia is that the case is closed and does not need to be investigated any further. It is worth noting that the prosecutor on the Dyatlov case, Lev Ivanov, followed the extra-terrestrial line of explanation. Most policemen tend to be hard-nosed types who have seen it all by the time they have reached the end of a long career in the police and Ivanov had probably seen his share of the worst of human nature in a large city like Sverdlovsk. He could have stuck with one of the more non-contentious theories such as an avalanche, with regards to the Dyatlov deaths, but he chose to keep to the line of them being killed by something out of this world. As will be seen, however, there may be other reasons why Lev Ivanov took the line he did.

Many data show that those may be “bundles of energy” acting on their way on objects of organic and inorganic nature, which modern people fail to understand, and modern science and technology to explain. Apparently, ours was one of such phenomena.

The examination showed that all the shots from the ten frame strip with Zolotarev’s name scratched on it were taken at night. At the time period the photos were taken, there was no visible moon. It did not appear until well after midnight and was waning (it was on its last quarter with 42% visibility and 23 days into its 29 day cycle before the new moon).

Here Nigel, your BL theory has company:
Robot
3 years ago
""I have thought of the unfortunate and unexplained deaths of these students for some time and as Spock said in Star Trek – quoted from Sherlock Holmes “… when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth…” I originally thought that it may have been the Russian Army with concussion bombs that were dropped on them by accident. The Army had used this location for secret tests. Some mention that the Army secretly arrived at the crime scene 1 week before the rescuers found the bodie.
This could answer a few of the mysteries but not all!
Why their tent was on the side of the mountain and not logically down at the tree line for shelter and fire wood?
The Army could have moved the tent up the mountain to change the crime scene. Why there was radioactive material on some of the clothing and why they were not wearing any protective clothes for the harsh climate? The Army could have changed their clothes and confiscated clothing which showed being radioactive. Though all good explanations, I do believe there is only one explanation that holds up to all the facets of this case! Yeti or Abominable Snow Man - Encounter! On research I found that the small tent used was not their main tent. They had left supplies at a base camp and were using this very small tent for an excursion. What was their purpose for climbing the Ural mountain range? I googled Russian news broadcast for the past year (1958) and found an interesting account of Yeti encounters on this range. That year a number of local Mansi tribe people disappeared. After an investigation, the Russian Government banned all further reporting on the Yeti with threats of incarceration. These students may have been acting as investigating reporters and photographers and needed a cover to conceal their true purpose. The one person they added to their close group was a guide familiar with the territory. A note on a printed paper in their possession was scribbled “From now on we know that the snow men exist”. Although they used guns to protect themselves in the wilderness for previous trips (pictures show), they did not carry any this time in case they were stopped and questioned. Whatever attacked them in their tent did not bite or claw but had extreme power to crush. A similar attack at Yale BC in the 1800’s by some gold miners who claimed to have captured a baby Sasquatch and in Washington State 1920’s of an attack:
http://www.bigfootlives.com/ ...
In 1946 Cultus Lake BC a newlywed couple disappeared from their cabin with only large footprints found surrounding the cabin. Case Scenario The illogical pitching of their tent in the open rather than down at the tree line may have been due to a scare from the locals at the last settlement. Towns’ people warned them about reindeer having been found dead in this area. They may have felt more secure making camp in the open rather than down within the trees. After setting up camp they would have taken off their boots and put their heavy outer wear outside to dry. Due to the limited space within the tent they more than likely stored this gear along with their skies and pack sacks in the overhang where the chimney exits. They then entered the tent using their long johns and tent slippers inside and had supper. Shortly after supper, two of the men went outside to urinate (documented) with a flashlight, which they left on the roof of the tent (documented) and a lighter and cigarettes to have a smoke. It was written in their diary that the women did not want them smoking in the hotel rooms or tent. While outside they were attacked and forced to flee down to the forest for cover. There they built a fire for warmth, to notify the others and to keep any predators away. On hearing the commotion outside the tent, 3 of the students with a flashlight went to help and were also attacked. Unable to reach their outerwear at the back of the tent they too fled down the mountain. The Yeti then centered their attack on the 4 remaining students left in the tent. The Yeti being unable to open the tent door or cut through began to pound on the center of the tent while the students inside sliced their knives back through the tent in defense. It’s been reported that Yeti can use sticks and may have poked through the open slits of the tent with one of the ski poles as it was documented that numerous knife cuts were found on one of the ski poles. The Yeti attack temporarily stopped when they saw the fire down at the tree line and the 3 students heading towards it with the flashlight (documented and found on this trail still in the on position). It has been reported that the Yeti are not afraid of fire or light. The Yeti then caught the 3 students before they could reach the tree line. Yeti use their large powerful arms to club and then bear hug their quarry until subdued and unconscious, all similar injuries reported on the students. Forensic Investigators state that when a body is suffocated the blood does not pool back to the organs, but stays at the extremities. The discoloring of the skin seen on the students at their funeral could have been caused by this injury. Seeing that the fire was attracting the Yeti the 2 students at the tree tried to frantically put it out, it was reported that one of these student’s hands were burnt by this action. Next they proceeded to climb a tree. The report claimed they had climbed the tree to observe if their tent was still there to return to. The problem with this statement is that it was after sunset, in winter, in Russia. I googled if there was a full moon that night and it shows that there was no moon visible, so it would have been pitch dark. The only reason to climb a tree at night would be to try and elude a predator. Sasquatches have been reported with the ability to climb trees. One of the students was found a few hundred feet from the tree still clutching a branch, as though he had been dragged down from the tree. When the remaining 4 students of the group did arrive at the tree, they found their companions dead. They proceeded to remove what clothing they could to keep warm rather than return to their tent and what was back there. They then went to a ravine and dug a snow cave for shelter. Unfortunately the Yeti were waiting for them in the forest and pursued them, cornering them at the ravine some short distance away. One problem with the Yeti theory is that no foot prints were ever found. The explanation is that it was sometime after the encounter, in winter, in a valley known for wind. The Yeti/Sasquatch have a very large bipedal foot, much like a “Bear Paw Snow Shoe” which leaves a very flat shallow print. These prints could easily have disappeared with weather conditions. The final explanation may be the hardest to believe and that is - Why have no further sightings or findings been made of Yeti in this location?
With all of our technologies, these mountains and the world in general have become a lot smaller, but the Universe is immense and unknown. There were unexplained lights in the sky seen by other observers. Strange creatures have been reported all over the world with similar globe light occurrences (Kentucky Goblin Encounter,Chupacabras, Ogopogo, Lochness Monster, and other such things). Many documented encounters with Sasquatch have been reported with similar globe lights seen around their vicinity. Could it be that there are time portals throughout the Universe and these creatures accidentally pass through them? One such strange occurrence happened in Manila in 1593 where a guard was suddenly transported to Mexico City.
http://www.psychic101.com/teleportation-learn.html

Could UFO’s seen in the area be trying to relocate these Yetis back to their rightful locations?
Could a nuclear blast such as the 1957-58 Russian accidental nuclear explosion at Kyshtym ( just a few miles south of Oblast Swerdlowsk where these students were) cause a rip in our universe?
This accident reportedly killed 1000’s of people and contaminated a 100 square kilometer area with high level radiation.
Could the radiation on their clothing have come from physical contact with these entities ?

Following up on my earlier comments....if indeed those that didn't freeze to death were finished off by members of the Mansi...it is interesting to note...most if not all of these individuals suffered some form of skull fracture...that is exactly what You would expect if these victims were first rendered unconscious by a stout blow to the head...the remaining injuries could have then been inflicted on alive but unconscious victims...you can ask the question, "If the Mansi did it, what tools were available to them at the crime scene to inflict these injuries...it easy to answer w/ the possible exception of the crushing injuries...on that one it's also easy to figure out though...an impact force isn't the only way to create a crushing injury..weight will do much the same thing...like the weight of a horse for example...they could easily have sat a horse down on the unconscious individual and squashed them...no enormously strong snowmen, alien or Russian bomb plot is needed..as far as hiding their tracks..hopefully no one puts that technique beyond the ability of these truly expert survivalist/outdoorsman that the Mansi were at that time...the evidence tells the story...just need to go where the facts lead...leave out the aliens, snowmen, Russian bombs etc...Case Closed? !

@Raitelis
"2. Something caused the hikers to cut thru their tent"
Not judging by the actual case files.... There is plenty of evidence suggesting the search crew dug out the tent and its contents with an axe and shovels which cut the canvas on the inside surface when flaps WHERE PEALED BACK making the inside....now facing outward.

"Mansi likely argued w/ the hikers in order to keep them out of a Sacred area"

Pretty sure it is NOT a sacred area.

If that damaged film is so important why didn't the OFFICIAL investigation pay any attention to it?
WHY ARE WE EVEN SEEING THEM? If they were taken by a KGB agent, on a SECRET MISSION, (while getting 8 others killed) WHY aren't they locked away somewhere in some secret archive?

Nigel Evans 16-09-2017 16:38 (GMT)
@Raitelis - if they were getting scared by sounds of snowmen you don't think they would prepare like getting their boots on and having axes and knives ready to take outside? Whatever it was that scared them gave them no warning.
Raitelis 16-09-2017 16:14 (GMT)
Key Points: 1. The hikers got into an intense argument w/ members of the Mansi.
2. Something caused the hikers to cut thru their tent
3. Something caused the hikers the flee the safety of the tent quickly, without even much clothing.. Theory...the Mansi likely argued w/ the hikers in order to keep them out of a Sacred area....even warning them of snowmen...indeed one of the hikers may have made a passing reference to Snowmen being real, possibly indicating they were being shadowed...likely by Mansi....on the night of the incident Mansi began making loud and weird seemingly inhuman sounds..trying to impersonate snowmen...this caused the hikers to cut holes in the tent to see what was making the sounds...as the sounds grew closer, louder and more threatening some or even most of the hikers panicked and ran for it...as they regrouped... one of them climbed a tree to see if they was really anything out there even as others began to freeze to Death..the few that survived after taking the clothes of the recently dead were finished off by the Mansi ..remember the Mansi aren't stupid...they made the murders look consistent w/ their own legends of Snowmen attacks...this is especially obvious w/ the removal of the tongue of one of the girls..something even modern Mansi are quick to point out...is the signature of a snowman attack...this fits the core facts of the case...there are other aspects of this case that have been added later that are likely fictional add ons...Case Solved??

@Lyndasez - the bunker has been mentioned before by Anna, it's relevance to the DPI depends very much on it's age of course. Could be there for advanced ball lightning research.. Or i could have just made that up...

One man's blurred object is anothers emulsion degradation? Don't think there's an easy way to resolve that one.
Lyndasez 16-09-2017 15:23 (GMT)
I just came across this. I'm going to leave it here for anyone who didn't see it to peruse. Interesting, underground bunker 6 miles from them, if it's been posted before, I apologize.
------------------
A mysterious object was discovered near the site, where tourists died when trying to cross the Dyatlov Pass. Amateur radio engineer and researcher of paranormal phenomena Valentin Degtyarev believes that the structure that was found on the site may have a connection with the tragedy that took place there in the winter of 1959.
It goes about a construction 25-30 meters long and 10-15 meters wide. The construction was found at a distance of ten kilometers from the site, when a group of tourists died in 1959. The construction, Degtyarev believes, could be a part of a bunker that had been built in the Ural mountains during the times of the Cold War.
The researcher assumes that the group of tourists could find themselves on the pass the day when neutron weapons were tested. This may explain the presence of radioactive substances on the clothes of one of the victims. The death of the tourists could be a reason, for which the tests were wrapped up. The underground building was blown up and mothballed. The upper part of the bunker is still visible on satellite images.
The Dyatlov Pass is considered to be one of the most mysterious areas of tourist routes in the Urals. In February 1959, nine skiers of a tourist club were killed near Mount Otorten under unclear circumstances. Igor Dyatlov was the leader of the group. The bodies that were subsequently found on the site shocked forensic experts: most of the people froze to death, whereas traces on the bodies of other victims indicated that they had died violent deaths.
The pass was named in memory of the tourist group led by Igor Dyatlov. Some researchers believe that the tourists died as a result of an explosion of a ballistic missile.
According to ex-governor of the Sverdlovsk region, Senator Eduard Rossel, the tragedy on the Dyatlov Pass still remains strictly classified information.

Ladies and Gentlemen i give you the killer punch in favour of the BL theory :-

SZ went to the DP with a "non recreational camera" and it is claimed that Eagle1 (Eagle2 is a blowup) is part of what he shot that night - http://dyatlov-pass.com/resources/340/gallery/Zolotaryov-camera-08.jpg .

I know you would really like to twist things to suite the BL theory Nigel but this is over the moon loco sheet man.

What Nigel is NOT telling everyone, is that the COMMUNIST GOV RAN UNIVERSITY instructed the leader of the college search team to IMMEDIATELY REPORT ANY INDICATIONS THE DYATLOV GROUP MAY HAVE BEEN ATTEMPTING TO DEFECT TO THE US THROUGH THE NORTHERN REGIONS.

Justified or not.... the state had their suspicions and likely had PRIOR to the group setting out. SOUNDS LIKE A REASONABLE PURPOSE FOR SZ TO BE ADDED TO ME!!
Loose-Cannon 16-09-2017 01:28 (GMT)
Oh for frick sakes...

KMM is right! You need to prove the photo is real or accept the original case file stating 'damaged'. I would expect the experts that opened the damn thing would know what 'damaged' means!

3 butt-cheeks, heads, fingers, fabric rolls, flashlight, lantern, lab exposure before removing film..... DAMAGED!.. YOU HAVE NO DAMN CLUE WHAT THE TRUTH IS..... nobody does. You can only state an opinion, and your opinion does not constitute FACT.

Again, if its a real exposure.... it could just as easily be a flashlight which could indicate murder/s. But its not real... I have seen the actual evidence pics of the cut sections and the canvas is thick and has a very tight weave. Its exactly like the military canvas I am familiar with. If you think those are fabric rolls, I can tell you for a fact canvas does not do this AND especially not when still attached on either end keeping tension on it. You also have a major issue with the wave pattern and size. "if" those are slits, then in order to have all three in the frame would require you to be a good 2 feet of more back from the canvas..... at this distance you will NOT see a large open weave patters as suggested the three balls exposure depicts.

Admit it.... repeat after me...

THERE IS NO WAY POSSIBLE FOR ANYONE TO SAY WITH ANY LEVEL OF CERTAINTY WHAT THAT EXPOSURE DEPICTS
Nigel Evans 15-09-2017 23:39 (GMT)
@KMM - Ok lets tackle these in reverse order. It's getting late and the whiskey is taking effect so bear with me. Happy

"So again, On the ONLY night he sets up to photograph lights, without knowing if there will be any, the whole group gets attacked by these lights. not once, but 2 or 3 times. You can't see how ridiculous you have become ? "

You can't argue a scenario wrt the DPI based on probabilities! Jeez the probable outcome of that night is that they wake up in the morning! All the scenarios are very improbable. Internal/external murder/aliens/yetis/wind/BL all extremely improbable and extremely difficult to align with the facts like the injury profile. We're very definately in improbable territory here. If you don't accept that then you're being ridiculous. So your point just isn't made, probable is a false argument.


"Definitely damaged, They lay in snow, ice, water for 3 months ! All you have to do is look at them to see. All but the first one has been magnified so much their meaningless. The first one was accidental exposure in the lab.
Seems like you have to prove them to be real, your the one claiming them to be real."
Well PROVING isn't easy but :-
(a) thanks to google / youtube i can point to images and vids that support the case that there is strong similarity with "real lights". The 2012 @ DP picture being key. But there's also a video of Hessdalen that films a similar light with this asymmetric structure looking like a "T".
(b) also there is an argument that if the images were exposed by SZ then he wasn't just photographing dark sky and he wasn't wasting frames. He didn't have a zoom so it's valid that some of the shots are highly magnified, that doesn't invalidate them.
(c) the eagle1 shot is absolutely the same as an eyewitness report from that period. A light surrounded by a mist. The eagle1 on it's own says they're real.
(d) i don't accept your determination for the three heads pic. I'll throw your improbable argument back at you, how probable is it that a photo that looks like a shot of a bright light through a canvas slit in a snowstorm could accidental? A trillion to one?
(e) wrt water damage the theory is that this camera wasn't commercial grade but military grade and waterproof. I'm not aware of cold damaging film?

Can't think of anything else, whiskey permitting : ).

Nigel Evans 15-09-2017 18:22 (GMT)
@KMM - good question, but it wasn't for one night more like 4 nights. I think it was a low priority mission, after all there was no guarantee that the lights would appear.
Other priorities would include raising confidence in the students safety, he was an alpine expert and ww2 veteran. It is claimed that there was another kgb agent in the group "K" presumably AK or YK, at least one of whom worked in sensitive nuclear sites so (at a guess) it ticked a few boxes back at HQ. It may have been that SZ took the mission more seriously than his superiors perhaps.
Whatever it's no accident that they chose that campsite, they left late and went straight up camping near the ridge just 500m from the nearest point of the treeline. Very hard to argue that they were lost.
KMM 15-09-2017 17:58 (GMT)
Why would a kgb agent NEED to imbed himself in a hiking expedition JUST to look at lights for 1 night?? The military/kgb had free rein. they could have outfitted their own expedition with specialized equipment and stayed for a week or longer.
A transfer of radioactive material makes much more sense.

Nigel Evans 15-09-2017 16:22 (GMT)
@Lyndasez - well i respect you as indeed i respect all the posters and i encourage you to challenge my posts. Not much point coming on here if we don't exchange frank opinions.
Whilst i respect people's passion i do think we should all show each other more respect. Nothing wrong with a bit of sarcasm and parody though, particularly when LC and myself cross swords. All good entertainment. But with respect. Shout at the opinion not at the person.

Concerning your post :-
"Everyone glosses over the fact these guys were ill equipped to survive any threats they encountered. No flares?"
Flares would be of no use, there was no settlement nearby to see them. Anyway even if the flare was seen and even reported there was no rescue infrastructure. That was the attraction for these youngsters, really out in the wild places.

"If SZ were an agent to study "lights," do you not agree he'd have a telescope or binoculars...or a telescopic lens on the camera?"
Well he's got to carry that stuff and probably a telescopic lens of that era would be much heavier. I'm guessing he opted for getting closer rather than carrying a pile of stuff. From memory the male members of the group set off with backpacks weighing 50kg so not much room onboard.

"I understand your logic about the the choice of unrestricted skyline...if he was to observe all this phenomena, but couldn't he walk to a clearing"
No that's the point the snow being whipped up off the back of the ridge ruled out a clearing or climbing a tree. Just 200m of altitude below the ridge and the sky could be a near whiteout. 200m higher and you're above it.

"instead making them sitting ducks? I mean wouldn't this raise questions and too many concerns about his choices between the group?"
There was no clear reason to be afraid of the lights other than mansi superstition would be the thinking. Someone went to the DP in 2012 and photographed these lights even with the benefit of hindsight. A light in the sky isn't scary until it comes and sits next to you...

He stated my comments were less than useless...didn't see you pipe up about that...I'm respectful when respected, if you're gonna give it to me without prompting, sorry all bets are off...

To address your theory of SZ being a KGB to study lights in the area....
Everyone glosses over the fact these guys were ill equipped to survive any threats they encountered. No flares? How good is an important mission under those circumstances? If SZ were an agent to study "lights," do you not agree he'd have a telescope or binoculars...or a telescopic lens on the camera? I confess I haven't delved into the many theories, just cursory...so I try reserve comment on them. I understand your logic about the the choice of unrestricted skyline...if he was to observe all this phenomena, but couldn't he walk to a clearing instead making them sitting ducks? I mean wouldn't this raise questions and too many concerns about his choices between the group?
Nigel Evans 15-09-2017 13:34 (GMT)
@Lyndasez - getting too complicated for me, i'm just a simple poster. If you're complaining about too much vitriol i would concur, nothing wrong with some passion but lets keep it polite passion, shout at the ideas but respect everyone's right to post them...

Wrt to your question - "Why did Mr. brilliant leader choose that locale when the forest would've given them break from the wind and a place to secure the stove?!"
"My BL theory" has it that SZ was a KGB agent on a mission to examine the reports of "lights" in this area, was equipped with a camera for night photography and he was attached to the group by the government agency that provided permission for the trip. So he would have had some serious influence on ID. On the 31 Jan they got to the base camp from which they would start ascending to Mt Otorten. The wind was very strong and coming from the West. Hence it was whipping up a lot of snow off the back of the ridge and into the forest that contained their planned route. This snow made it difficult to observe and photograph any lights so he decided that "the mission " was best served by camping as close to the ridge as was sensible the stove not deployed but filled with firewood just in case. So that's what they did, they left at 3pm and went straight up there. It wasn't ID's decision in fact he records in the diary (the last ever entry) - "We started fire with logs, too tired to dig a fire pit. We had supper right in the tent. It's warm. It is hard to imagine such a comfort somewhere on the ridge, with a piercing wind, hundreds kilometers away from human settlements.". Imo he's indicating he's being overruled on the plan, he doesn't like the idea of the ridge but has to comply.

@John - they're not heads? Just folds in the bottom of the canvas slit (imo). Note all the members of the group had long(ish) hairstyles even the men on top. None of them had "spikey" hair like in the three heads photo. Whatever it's a photo of, it's not heads...

Well if the sole source of these reports is from that looo.ch site then there's cause for concern. I try not to base too much on internet sites, a lot of chinese whispers out there.

@KMM - we've got disagreeing sources over Ivanov, mine is as reported by S. Oss an english speaking russian journalist quoting an interview he gave in russian, yours are simply internet gossip. A problem with the DPI is that it attracts a lot of hype.

Disappointing he's too busy to look at a possible phenomena that is often quoted as an embarrassment of modern physics. Sign of the times, too much specialism.

John Wolfe 15-09-2017 05:19 (GMT)
Hi Nigel, I have an interesting thought about the two reports of 1) the night watchman at the quarry / mining site; and 2) the forester. Two things stand out that makes me think these were unrelated to the DPI phenomena -- in fact, I think they were pranks -- let me explain:

When I first read these two accounts I was fascinated with the two stories -- however my fascination was in part because of a mis-reading of the two accounts. I had originally thought that the two events happened about ten years apart (as that is -- ie 10 years -- WHEN the second guy, the forester, started looking for the mining watchman guy from the first account; he had seen an article in the local newspaper -- and never forgot his experience of it) But then I started to look at the details of the two stories and realized we'd all been pranked -- by some Soviet teens, no doubt.

1) -- first of all -- the events happened only about two weeks apart, and it was summer, when school is out, and kids stay up late; some playing pranks. I checked the dates on both reports -- less than two weeks apart -- but it was THE NEWSPAPER ARTICL about the mining watchman's experience, that got the forester's attention, which was in a local paper ten years later. Also -- the two events happened somewhat close to one another. Don't have the books in front of me -- about 40 km apart, as I recall.

2) both events had the exact same appearance - with the exact same "behavior" of the lights. (I don't think ball lightning would duplicate its actions at a different location / or time --- its actions being somewhat random.

3) in both, the big light kept turning off when the "victim" looked at it -- as the light operator would see the glowing pupils and know he was being looked at.

4) both events had "swinging " but much smaller, lights. Like a couple of guys walking with a flashlight (sorry - torch) in each hand.

5) sounds like a fun thing to do.

---- any thoughts ? ----

Hi Nigel, re: the "three heads" photo -- if you examine it -- you'll see that the two "heads" on the right are not rounded like the one on the left -- I think what we're seeing is FIVE HEADS -- the two on the right look to me to be occluding / overlapping of two each.

Incorrect, he said - "By the way, I do not mean that these UFOs are connected with aliens. A UFO is an unidentified flying object, and that’s it. A lot of data speaks of the fact that [the UFOs] can be bursts of energy not understood by modern science, but which affect life and the environment.

@John Wolfe -- "NONE OF THESE GUYS/GIRLS WERE CLASS CLOWNS ! they were undergraduate and graduate students at Ural Polytechnic Institute -- which is like the MIT or Stanford U of the Soviet Nation. (though much smaller and not nearly as well funded) They were (highly valuable) students in engineering and the sciences; some already working in their field while they studied."

Allow me to clarify, some were wrapped more tightly than others. In photos some are clowning around, whereas, Igor appears on the outside looking in..

And to your comparison to the likes of MIT students, I submit this: "On Thursday, November 22 (1971), a former MIT student named Larry J. Harmon entered St. Aloysius Roman Catholic Church in Spokane, Washington - his home-town; He was armed with a sledge hammer and a clip-fed .22 caliber rifle. With the hammer he smashed the interior of the church and with the rifle he killed the caretaker, 68 year old Hilary Kunz."

-- "as for all the talk of love and kissing -- what else do 20'something college students talk about when they are relaxing? "

According to you they would be discussing the Riemann hypothesis or string theory!

Concerning the stove- yes, I know it wasn't erected that night, which also concerns me. Why did Mr. brilliant leader choose that locale when the forest would've given them break from the wind and a place to secure the stove?!

"please note: Igor was chosen for the group leader because he had led groups in that area before -- more than one time. This was a school club."

I know this to, 4 hikes i believe was stated. So? What was his disaster training, think the girls had as many hikes ...and 1 was bitten by a viper and the other accidentally shot.. if Igor was so good at this wouldn't they all have been kept together, instead of splintered off?

I really like Ian's conclusion - he has by far explained what might have happened to the individuals with the most plausable explanation. Whether or not it was soldiers is probably the only "iffy" part of the explanation. It could have been natives or soldiers - doesn't matter. It definitely fits the clues left.


Me 14-01-2016 17:24 (GMT)
They were obviously murdered somehow.

Ian 13-08-2016 14:11 (GMT)
These were young people full of life and ability, who would have brought a lot of good into the world if they had been able to live out their natural lifetimes. The sheer tragedy of this story hasn’t allowed it to leave my mind for days. At least for me, trying to put together a rational explanation of the events brings a little bit of closure. I’m not saying that the hypothetical scenario that follows is what happened, but I do think it fits all of the available evidence. What do you think?

Sometime during the day or evening of Feb 1st, the Dyatlov group encountered a clandestine testing or training operation perhaps involving jets or rockets (This would explain the reports of glowing orange lights and the military debris in the area later noted by YY). It wasn’t the type of situation where there was a fear of the tourists leaking photographs of a secrete weapon (their cameras would have simply been confiscated). For some reason, the group itself came to be perceived as the threat.

The group’s journal records that as they were traveling towards the beginning point of their hike, they sometimes sung anti-revolution songs that could have landed them in jail. They twice had scrapes with authorities on their trip (once for singing). Also from the journal, it appears that they enjoyed free and open debates about a variety of topics. Later, out in the woods hundreds of km from the nearest settlement (journal entry), they probably would have felt even greater freedom in such expressions. Entering into the area of an ongoing operation may have brought them under surveylence, perhaps without their knowledge. An overheard song or a frank debate about politics, combined with their chance-but-perceived-as-“suspicious” presence in a sensitive area, caused them to be viewed as subversive.

They camped that night on open high ground. When one of the members, perhaps SZ or NYB, stepped outside to relieve himself, if it was clear, his flashlight would have been visible for a long distance, alerting anyone in the area who might not have already been aware of their tent’s precise location. Minutes later, as the group was finishing dinner and drying out their clothes, a small armed detachment arrived at the tent. Whoever it was (I’ll call them “soldiers”) knocked the tent down, fired a few rounds into the air, and ordered the tourists outside or they would be shot. (Supposedly, there were no footprints other than the Dyaltov party’s at the tent, but how could one tell? Surely the Dyaltov group made many boot prints when they set up camp, obviously the rescuers were wearing boots days later when they got to the tent. At first no one suspected it could be a crime scene. It is not just possible but probable that a couple extra pairs of footprints at the tent would have gone unnoticed).

Unexpected gunfire and barking orders would have sent a momentary jolt of fear into even these level-headed travelers. Members of the group who had pocket knives at hand quickly cut through the tent to get everyone outside before the threat was carried out. The multiple cuts in the tent were created in the panic and confusion of exiting a wriggling collapsed tent cover in the dark.

The soldiers wanted to neutralize the tourists, but to leave bullet holes or other obvious wounds would have eventually led to strong demands for an explanation from the community. The soldiers chose to expose them to the cold. Under some guise, the soldiers told the Dyatlov group that they had to leave the area immediately. With great presence of mind, the group leader, ID grabbed a flashlight and his heavy coat as he was leaving the tent. He was immediately ordered to leave them behind, setting the flashlight on the tent, and throwing his coat down, near the spot where he had exited (It’s difficult to conceive of another logical scenario that would explain these objects being found where they were).

The Dyaltov party was followed, but not very far. (Their being followed some distance would explain the heeled boot track found among their own tracks as they headed down slope - No one in the group was wearing such boots at this time). They dropped a lit flashlight on the way, either because they were ordered to do so, or in hopes of using it as a beacon to direct them back to the tent if the soldiers left.

Poorly clothed, in extreme cold, and possibly in the dark, these resilient people covered half the distance that they traveled in their entire day’s hike, to arrive at the nearest tree line. This probably took quite a bit of time, and they knew that with their level of exposure the clock was against them. They set up a small base camp under a pine tree, just out of site of the tent, and together built an emergency fire (an impressive feat with frozen wood, in the cold, with no gloves, and possibly in the dark). Afraid that the soldiers were still at the tent, and unsure if they would pursue, YD and YK were posted near the fire to keep a lookout for the soldiers’ approach. (This would explain why branches were broken off so high up in the tree on the side of the tent, when other branches would have been easier to obtain.) Perhaps they kept a lookout from up in the tree as long as they could. Many or all of the injuries on these two individuals were from exposed hands getting frost bite in the tree, eventually leading to them falling out.

The rest of the group proceeded to build a shelter in a protected area, near, but out of site of the lookout tree. The small fire of frozen wood was not enough to keep the injured YD, and YK warm. Even though they burned parts of their numb extremities, they fell asleep. Either someone in the group was with them, or came back to them, showing care and respect by placing the bodies next to each other. The outer clothes, no longer of any use to the deceased, were removed. At this point, the shelter was not yet finished, because some of their clothing was incorporated into it. The survivors did their best to stay warm in the shelter, but were dangerously cold and heartbroken over the deaths.

Shortly before dawn, the soldiers returned to make sure no one was left to tell the tale. They discovered the shelter, and a hand-to-hand fight ensued. (This would explain many’s of the group’s injuries, including the bruised metacarples on ID and RS, RS’s concussion, and the baton bruise on ZK.) Exhausted and freezing, the group was now no match for their assailants even without the use of their guns).

ID, RS, and ZK managed to break free into the darkness. They made a run for the tent, desperate for the axes or anything to help their friends. (Such a level of desperation would explain why they left the group, the shelter, and the fire, when they were so close to freezing that they could only go a few hundred more yards). ZK, a strong and brave young woman came the closest to making it.

As for the group that was left, the soldiers pressed LD and SZ to death, broke YK’s neck, and crushed TBS’s skull, neutralizing them without leaving any obvious weapon mark. (Such a grim scenario would explain the types of injuries sustained by the party members found in the ravine - crushed chests with none of the external cuts or arm injuries that would have certainly happened in a fall, explain why they were all found outside of their nearby shelter, explain the fragment of soldier’s garb found in the ravine, and explain why it was subsequently taken out of evidence). The autopsies of these group members were the most vague, because the coroners had no choice. More detail would have raised still more questions from the community and gotten them in official hot water.

It is significant that YY, who was a part of the group, knew the Dyatlov party’s circumstances better than any living person, and saw all or most of the original evidence, thought that the military had something to do with his friend’s deaths. In 2008, 6 of the original rescuers and a team of 31 experts came to the similar conclusion that military testing was involved. The official report was that the Dyatlov group died at the hands of an “unknown compelling force”. How could words come closer to summarizing the above, without implicating the party responsible? This may also explain why the military closed the area for the following three years.

Any thoughts?


Robs 04-10-2016 17:50 (GMT)
These were scientific professionals not your average man off the street. Something happened in the or around the tent that made 9 people panic and evacuate the tent under extreme pressure. Knowing it was minus 20+ they left without clothing and equipment. We already agreed that they ran from the tent not walked so that already falsified the report saying they walked in single file. I see no evidence of BL or the phonomia of the low wave sounds that "send people mad". The BL to strike in 3 different locations and kill multiple persons is at best highly unlikely. We are missing something if they didn't read the tracks correctly as mentioned above then they could have missed other things in my opinion


CE399_ 19-10-2016 19:21 (GMT)
Comment to Robs:
Group infighting does not explain the hurried exit from the tent unless someone pulled a gun on the rest of the group. Or say, grabbed Lyuda and threatened to slit her throat if the rest of the group didn't do as he said.

Zolotaryov had the most unstable personal life going into the trip. He was a serial job-hopper. That is often a sign of an acute personality or psychological disorder that suddenly erupts. He was a loner and from a culture that almost required marriage yet remained unmarried at an age that was considered too old.

Zolotaryov had strange tattoos which are not that unusual for hardcore Soviet military men except that they were too cryptic in way that was not normal.

Zolotaryov was a Cossack from a group that was 97% wiped out by Stalin's genocide. He survived by joining the Soviet army and proving himself loyal to them. To abandon your familial heritage and join the enemy has to mean something is askew or will go askew with you psychologically at some point. And Zolotaryov had a very askew career and personal life.

Zolotaryov was an unvetted outsider with a very suspicious past that included World War II service where Soviet soldiers committed genocide, murder, torture and rape on a scale that certainly touched his experience if not fully involved him.

I would agree that infighting could have been what happened if Zolotaryov had not suffered the same violent death as Lyuda.

Zolotaryov was well clothed when he died of internal trauma. The rather mediocre coroners said there were no "external signs of injury" i.e. bruising to match the cracked ribs. This has been mistakenly attributed as evidence that the "overwhelming force" was some mysterious electromagnetic beam weapon.

Every other member of the group had a lengthy history with each other that rules out any of them as being involved in a fatal infighting incident.

Only Zolotaryov could have been the cause of an infighting conflict that drove them to their deaths. His background paints a very troubled person. But nothing that indicates he was a sociopath.

The biggest problem with trying to pin it on Zolotaryov is that he died with the other victims in a way that could not have been self-inflicted. And there just isn't another person who can be fingered with any reasonable degree of evidence. The group was also nearer the beginning of the trip than the end. Nerves get frayed during an expedition of several days but the group had not been traveling in the wilderness as a group, out of contact with the rest of the world, for more than four days. And they had not encountered any significant difficulties that would accelerate interpersonal tensions.

Someone from the outside attacked the group and did so for reasons that were personal and excluded most of the group.

Because Lyuda was so viciously attacked and two other men with her were killed violently, the most logical scenario is that the attacker(s) drove the group suddenly out of the tent.

At some point, some of them fought back and escaped. Some of them were seriously injured in the process and all were too weak and vulnerable to survive which would explain why the attacker(s) did not pursue them.

A person improperly clothed in a storm at -25 Celsius isn't going to survive the night. The escapees tried to get a fire going and climbed a tree to see where they were --strong evidence that they were driven from the tent by an attacker and not a fireball. If they had had a choice of where to flee, they would have headed toward the larger river, main path and their storage cache by the abandoned campsite.

Some of the escapees tried to get back to the tent and some stayed with the fire. Those who stayed with the fire were burned because that is what happens when the fire is too small and the weather too cold.

The clothing was not taken off of dead bodies, it was ordered to be given to the subgroup that the attacker was most interested in dealing with. People just assume the clothing of some of the victims was removed by their comrades after they died. In a hostage scenario the possibilities include clothing being ordered to be removed.

Because Zolotaryov was wearing Lyuda's hat and because his injuries would have left him alive for minutes or hours, it is logical to imagine that the assailant injured Zolotaryov first. Lyuda then, seeing him injured took compassion on him and gave him her hat. This likely took place in "the den" where Lyuda would have been out of the wind and could have survived without a hat.

The assailant then attacked Lyuda, perhaps it was because she showed compassion for Zolotaryov. Her injuries are consistent with someone acting out of anger and not as part of a fistfight.

The assailant then left the group after seeing that all of them were dead.

Doing such a thing was crazy stupid illogical and irrational but most crimes of passion are.

Everyone wants to treat the fireball events seen around the time of the Dyatlov tragedy as special. Sorry, that sort of thing is not special at all. Go spend a couple winters up there and you'll see. I have. And I am not impressed at all by the stories. They are as common as hurricanes in Florida. Sure, some are bigger than others and some seasons have few and others a lot. But what was seen was not unique.


Frank Black 25-10-2016 19:27 (GMT)
Best web site I've seen so far with very comprehensive injury information. I don't believe in a Yeti, UFO or any of that paranormal crap. There is only one kind of animal that can inflict that kind of damage to those young people- MAN. Military security, regular Army whatever but I believe it was other humans. I know that it might take some of the "lunatic fringe" mystery out of it but really a Yeti, be serious. Look at the autopsy data, some of those kids had the crap beaten out of them. You have to look at this logically plus 9 intelligent educated young people lost there lives possibly because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

How many people had BL actually killed leaving these exact injuries ? I suspect none but I'm not an expert?


Robs 26-11-2016 16:58 (GMT)
The bodies weren't found for weeks. Footprints couldhave easily been made or covered without any hassle including the hijackers foot prints (if that's what happened) the BL theory is just too far fetched for me, to make them Leave the tent in such a panic, apparently follow them and kill them at different locations doesn't seem right


Robs 28-11-2016 18:09 (GMT)
That is a possibility Mick, certainly i think that the group were hijacked by persons unknown



Mick 28-11-2016 17:44 (GMT)
Earlier, the group had had an argument with a drunk man who claimed they'd stolen his wallet, so perhaps when he'd sobered up he got his friends to follow the hikers, and clubbed them in their tent?


Teddy 30-11-2016 18:09 (GMT)
Another thing - what caused my trauma is high velocity impact - I was mounted in the back of a truck, much like this http://dyatlov-pass.com/resources/340/gallery/Krivonischenko-camera-film6-05.jpg the truck going down a mountain and the brakes failed. The truck lost control and we smashed into a rock with 70 km/h. So I tell you - you can not break your ribs by falling down a snow slope or somebody hitting you with a heavy bat. This is what is puzzling me, even if there were people pointing guns at them, how did they manage to inflict such a horrific injuries? A butt of a rifle can cause and most probably did cause Slobodin's skull fracture http://dyatlov-pass.com/death#Slobodin but not Dubinina's broken ribs. Zolotaryov had similar rib fractures http://dyatlov-pass.com/death#Zolotaryov
Teddy 30-11-2016 17:52 (GMT)
Dubinina had 10 broken ribs on both sides. Please refer to http://dyatlov-pass.com/death#Dubinina I had similar injury - flail chest with lung contusion http://distal-humerus.com/resources/320/gallery/2012-07-24-X-Ray-chest.jpg They drained my right lung for 10 days - it was a pulp. My prognosis was dim.
Dubinina had twice as much broken ribs but she didn't drown in her own blood because a broken rib pierced her heart.
The cause of death is stated as hemorrhage into right atrium of the heart, multiple fractured ribs and internal bleeding
More interesting is that there were 100 g of coagulated blood in her stomach which means she swallowed after her tongue was ripped out.
Photos of Lyudmila from the morgue clearly show that there is no damage to the mouth, nose, ears or other soft tissues. If the body was devoured by scavengers, insects or even fish in the water these would be the first parts of the body that would show signs of damage.


Robs 04-12-2016 20:22 (GMT)
My theory is that hijackers forced them to leave tent with no shoes and little clothing knowing that they would soon die (and attacked them later). The tracks disappeared just like the tracks from the 9'when they setup camp


ken 29-01-2017 15:58 (GMT)
Author Keith McCloskey has calculated that some of the group were outside the tent photographing some kind of light in the sky for at least 2 mins ( this is deduced by reference to the Yakimenko examination of the negatives of the group cameras and a video presentation of lecture Yakimenko made at the Ural Federal University at the annual Dyatlov Conference 2015) and alludes to the fact that SZ leaves the tent fully dressed with his camera still around his neck making it very likely in his understandable opinion that there is a clear connection between the lights and their flight but like the rest of us cant pin down what that might be....2 of these negatives seem to depict a section of rocket or plane which may have broken off after a failed military experiment of possibly a 2 stage rocket launch.I believe this however coincided with something else going on as i believe that the 4 in the den were injured there and that certainly Tibo could not have walked after his injuries ,that is if we are to accept the footprint evidence or indeed any of the evidence as real and not dressed-up after the event by the Military once we decide upon how the Military may have known that they were there...... were they stalked or did predators come upon them by accident?If they were stalked was this the real reason that they took a wrong turn onto the mountain away from their planned route?Was the Military stalking them? Was SZ a KGB minder so this was unnecessary?Did Khanty hunters stalk them and did the Shaman interpret the unusual lights in the night sky as permission from the spirits to uphold their tradition that to them the mountain was sacred and forbidden to strangers especially to women who may not gaze upon it?Indeed had some of the group cut slit holes so as to surveil where their stalkers might be? ( i write this assuming that someone cant come up with a solution to how an apparent rocket or plane wing caused their deaths and their bodies to be found in various locations well away from the tent or why after the event they should have chosen to get out of it ) The case of the Khanty hunters made by Svetlana Oss ends with a possible clue regarding a rifle but no more is heard about that.There may be a number of problems with the Khanty hunter did it scenario such as 1) if the aim was to kill the tourists by hypothermia why did they allow some of the group to leave the tent fairly well-dressed : for all they knew these individuals may have continued walking away making them very hard to find again or did they go with them on skis and 2) why didnt they kill them at the tent if ritualistic murder was always their intention? The negatives referred to above are shown in the appendix of Keiths 2nd book journey to Dyatlov Pass an explanation ( and whilst i dont want to be rude to him but there isnt one here)

@Sandy.I have mentioned since I started posting here,that in my opinion the hikers were killed.The search group went to look after them a week later.A week is a long time.The killers had plenty of time to cover prints,even mess around with evidence to puzzle the investigation.BL would be a possibility if only one of them was killed,but there is no evidence of storm that night plus the fact that lightning is rare during winter.

Violent death refers to death resulting from a sharp blow, stabbing, explosion, gunfire, or the like. The death is accelerated by human intervention. It is the opposite of natural death which occurs due to natural reasons.
It says human intervention,meaning that the death of the victims was caused by another humans.


Finally....A person on this site besides the 3 Musketeers & their BL blither which never ceases. Page after page after pitiful bs page.......If you disagree, you're bullied & ignored. Nothing else is discussed except the BL. Oh, that murdering BL.......9 people in ....
how many different injuries??? The BL seems to like hands, especially fingers, since almost all of them have combat/fight defensive injuries, skinned knuckles....... Seems to like breaking both sets of ribs and skulls too.....Severing a tongue....Blunt force trauma on a skull, case files state this......Removing 2 sets of eyeballs......caving a chest cavity in.

Igor has many many abrasions and defensive wounds as well even tho he died from hypothermia, many hand abrasions...... Most of them have dried blood around their mouths, their noses, as in fight wounds, again......It states in the case files that it's very rare for hypothermia victims to look like these hikers. Meaning, most hypothermia victims do not have the shit kicked, punched, kneed, hit violently with a baton, blunt force trauma to a skull and almost all sets of 9 hands with obvious combat/defensive wounds.

That BL sure was busy stalking that nite...........

There used to be a lot of other posters discussing the obvious & file stated documents that equal all 9 hikers being murdered by other people. This is a given now. Yet, this site is now only used for this BL bullsh!t by 3 delusional posters, one being an obsessed, desperate man to be known for making up "the big BL theory", and in his own words, he thinks we have "theory envy" or some such bull, since almost all the posters that have been here disagreed with Nigel & have left long ago.

Of course the BL man has been here since inception, blowing his fancied horn as if he's achieved some wonderful award for thinking up such a thing as BL killing nine people at one get go.

It says BLs disappear quickly too musketeers. A lot of them are the size of a grapefruit..... they leave electric shocks on people often....lightning marks.....burns that you can tell come from some sort of lightning...

And did I say that I read that it's "rare" or almost impossible to have BL without some sort of storm?? They have hundreds of alleged victims/survivors that have posted about their own stories of a BL. None of them match even close to the hikers. Most survived.

I feel your laid back, moronic BL mumbo jumbo is a disgrace to these 9 that were so brutally murdered, died in screaming terror and agony, the last 4 tortured for hours and hours....

You should be ashamed of yourselves for saying it's "unintelligent" to believe what the files are depicting clearly & what the deceased pics unmistakenly show. The death pics are horrific, just horrific of their terror.........

The nine hikers deserve to have their truth be stated so they didn't all die in vain without anyone knowing what really happened.

I feel pity for your delusion and for Nigel's false bravado over a really really senseless & proven ludicrous BL pipe dream.

It is clear to see, except for the delusional, and from reading all nine's autopsies & what was written in their case files and in the decades since, in this year of 2017, yes, it's very evident and clearly stated in the files that all nine were attacked & murdered by "people" in "hand to hand combat/fighting".

If you do not support this BL ridiculous sh!t, I can't call it a theory any longer after I did some research on what it is & what today's scientists know and think about it. Seems like it disappears pretty quickly, to have it happen without a thunderstorm/rainstorm is indeed considered "rare" & has different injuries listed by the "many" people that claim to have been hit by BL and survived.

If there had "really" been 9 people, all hit by BL, it is rare & highly unlikely that all 9 would have been killed by it. There would have been survivors.

I have since found MANY photos of the 9 hikers death pictures that I have never seen before, nor are all of them listed on this site. It has horrified me as about all have mouths open wide, as if in screaming in terror, and anything BUT CALM as the jackass Nigel has stated. Calm? Are you really that delusional you will say such a thing just to support your BL blah blah. To say that is disrespectful to the hikers & the agony that was suffered. Their lives taken just.like.that.

I also find it disrespectful that you would post that Zina hardly had any injuries. "Scratches" you called them. She had abrasions, not scratches, almost all over her entire face. Her hands. Her knuckles were skinned to the bone......She isn't even recognizable. A person hit the f*ck out of her with something like a baton. To stop her from getting to the tent. She was doing pretty good until her back got whacked as hard as a strong man could. Fact. Evidence to back this up.

There are other sites where intelligent folks can discuss rationally and seriously the way these young innocent peoples' lives were taken. .... God knows. He saw. He wept. He will serve
His justice one day. The 9 deserve justice and truth and they're not getting that here.

"The rapid expansion of the aortic arch (an aortic arch aneurysm) was probably due to inhalation pulmonary edema, sudden pressure spikes and blood clotting after receiving poisoning and a large dose of irradiation (blood, as it were, boils in the veins) and venous stasis."

From what I understand, methanol (form of alcohol) can be irradiated, and it use in Russian oil fields? at the time was extensive. The point is...... Methanol poisoning>>>> blood boil (think Bends)>>> enlarged aorta. There is another long section regarding the radiation found on the clothing with interviews, interrogation quotes and all all the facts including the actual reports that I haven't gotten to yet.

Igor Alekseievich Dyatlov

Born on Jan. 13, 1936, Russian Federation

He was the leader of the ill-fated hiking group; the whole incident is named after him. He was a student of the 5th Faculty of Radio Engineering at UPI university. A talented engineer, he designed and assembled a radio during his 2nd year that was used during hikes in 1956 in the Sayan Mountains. He also designed a small stove that he used after 1958 by Dyatlov himself and that he had brought with him on this trip. People who knew Igor described him as a thoughtful man who never rushed with his decisions. He courted Zina Kolmogorova who also took part in the hike. Igor Dyatlov was one of the most experienced athletes in the group.

He was 23 years old when he died.

-- please note: Igor was chosen for the group leader because he had led groups in that area before -- more than one time. This was a school club.

-- as for Zina'a comment in your post ( "diary entry: "Igor all evening was rude, I didn't recognize him. I had to sleep on the wood near the stove."Winking ....... sometimes the group leader has to tell someone its their turn to sleep next to the stove ....

"Death is violent - an accident. SUD.MED.EXPERT OF THE REGIONAL BUREAU OF SUDMEDEKSPERTIZY - signature / REVIVAL / COURT.MED.EXPERT OF THE CITY OF NORTH-URALSK - signature / LAPTEV / "

and -- "Bodily injuries of the soft tissues of the head region and "bath skin" of the limbs are posthumous changes in the body of Thibault Brignol, which was recently found in the water.
The death of Thibault Brignoles is violent."

and -- "The death of Zolotarev is violent."

and -- "The body injuries found on the body of Kolevatov are in the head area - defects in soft tissues, as well as "bath" skin, are posthumous changes in a corpse that was recently found before it was found in the water.
Kolevatov's death is violent."


from your quote, please note:

--- you all misconstrue the word "violent" to mean an attack (you watch too much television and movies) -- but as stated in your post above their meaning is clear "violent" here means broken bones and internal injuries -- as they then say (elsewhere) like an "auto accident"

--- special note to all: this "auto accident" in no way implies that someone drove a car over the nine hikers -- and none of you are claiming this -- yet you all construe "violent" as if it meant an attack -- it does not -- if a TREE fell on you and killed you -- that would also be "violent" -- but no one would suggest that the tree "attacked" you.

"The aorta (lat ..arteria ortha, a.ortha - a straight artery) is the largest unpaired arterial vessel of the great circle of blood circulation in the human body. It comes out of the left ventricle, its beginning is the aortic opening. From the aorta all arteries that form a large circle of blood flow away. The aorta is divided into three sections: the ascending part of the aorta, the arch of the aorta and the descending part of the aorta.
https://image.ibb.co/dp6COk/255px_aorta_scheme.jpg .

The arch of the aorta with its convexity is facing upward. From the bulge go three large vessels: the brachiocephalic trunk, the left common carotid artery and the left subclavian artery.

The brachiocephalic trunk at the level of the right sternoclavicular joint is divided into two branches: the right common carotid artery and the right subclavian artery. Heading from the front to the bottom, the aortic arch at the level III of the thoracic vertebra passes into the descending part of the aorta.

Most recently, based on thousands of studies, doctors made an interesting conclusion that the age of a person can be determined from the width of the aorta!

The aorta in humans is expanded twice - initially to 20-22 years, for the second time after 40 years.

Analysis of the metric data of men of different ages was carried out after studies of the aorta without pronounced atherosclerotic deformation and putrefactive changes. As a result of this analysis, forensic experts noticed an amazing feature - the width of the aorta varies with age.

https://image.ibb.co/dc1COk/n9emv1.png .

https://image.ibb.co/gyNiw5/image01467.jpg .

As we can see, the widest part of the aortic arch in part "D" in healthy people under the age of 25 years should not exceed 5 cm.

Publication. "Actual issues of forensic medicine and expert practice, Barnaul-Novosibirsk 2011. 17 »
(SME EM Skaryukin, head of the Elizovsky Interdistrict Office)
http://journal.forens-lit.ru/node/453

Perhaps, about this feature of the aorta Revived B.A. in 1959 did not yet know, but the size of the aorta in the dead were strange:

The width of the aortic arch above the valves:

Kolevatov Alexander 7 cm .
Thibo-Brignol Nicholas - 8.5 cm
Igor's djatlov - 8 cm of
Kolmogorov Zina - 8 cm
Doroshenko Yuri - 8,5 cm

It turns out that in 5 children, the Rebirth recorded that the width of the aortic arch was increased for some reason. Such dimensions of the width of the aortic arch correspond to the size of the organ of a sick person or person aged over 70 years. But all the guys were healthy and athletic people!

As a result, in a short period of time, the width of the aortic arch could increase in healthy athletes?

The rapid expansion of the aortic arch (an aortic arch aneurysm) was probably due to inhalation pulmonary edema, sudden pressure spikes and blood clotting after receiving poisoning and a large dose of irradiation (blood, as it were, boils in the veins) and venous stasis.

"they seem to act as a cooperating group who are forced to leave the tent"

Except that the group split not once, but twice.... I do however like the word "seem" as its slightly less factual.


they seem to act as a cooperating group who are forced to leave the tent and crucially forced to stay away for some time. The latter is one of the key points for the BL theory and imo defeats an internal violence scenario for the simple reason that there would have been a rapid fight with fatalities and a surviving group and they would have returned to the tent for their stuff asap"

Key points for the BL theory eh? There is ZERO evidence they were 'forced' to stay away from the tent. In fact, three of them WERE apparently returning to the tent when they perished. You also have absolutely no idea at what point in time or how quickly said return attempt/attempts happened. Quite the imagination for inventing facts.

@LC - Several rubbish posts there, nothing for me to comment on except to ask what is it you're smoking? It would be completely logical to assume that the rav4 had also died, they left their outer clothing in the tent. The siberian winter would do the rest.

@Lyndasez - hi, good to hear what Lynda says. A problem with the internal strife theory is that Yudin didn't flag it and he was there. SZ was well accepted etc etc. Also all of the photos and their newspaper demonstrate a very friendly group. It's possible of course for tensions to suddenly surface but i don't see it in their actions, they seem to act as a cooperating group who are forced to leave the tent and crucially forced to stay away for some time. The latter is one of the key points for the BL theory and imo defeats an internal violence scenario for the simple reason that there would have been a rapid fight with fatalities and a surviving group and they would have returned to the tent for their stuff asap. But all of the events seem to show a timeline lasting say 2 hours. It would have taken time to get down the hill, build a fire, the 2 yuris were turned after lividity had frozen in which takes time. so it seems reasonable for say a couple of hours away from the tent. So what was keeping them away for so long standing in their socks? What was that compelling force?

Imo the key question isn't what made them leave the tent but what kept them away from all their gear with which they could easily survive long term. The labaz was well stocked with food all they needed was that gear, but they didn't go back to the tent for it instead built a fire and a den. Finally when three of them did try they all expired within 330m.

Something kept them away and frustrated their return.

Oh boy... Your brother Ivanov again!


Acts of forensic medical examination of the corpses of the last four were signed only by prosecutor-criminalist Ivanov and forensic expert Revived.

Signatures under the act of court. Med. Studies of the corpses of Ivanov and the forensic expert of the Revived

The forensic expert Revived on the document did not put his seal, the signature of the third person - criminalist expert Churkina is absent. Acts of the last four are invalid.

https://image.ibb.co/dFTBya/sme.jpg .

What happened, why the Rebellion could not execute the order from above and write to all the dead the cause of death "freezing" - remains a mystery, it is also unknown what kind of injuries the guys actually had. The revived did not attach to the media report (forensic medical research) photographs from the mortuary corpses of Alexander Kolevatov and Thibault Nikolai.

Along with this, the media reports contain some details about the absence of eyes and tongue from corpses, which gave the tragedy a bit of mysticism. Extricated for some reason in all the stories, together with the artificially created and widespread myth of the mountain of the dead, these "details" fuel an interest in the tragedy and make people feel fear from an unknown "spontaneous force".

The ladies had also made mention of the "red-bearded" guy at the cottage they stayed, that he's not as cerebral as they but he fascinating....and they stated most of the conversation is about love, kissing so forth.
Now, some of these guys seem like class clowns some athletes...Dyatlov I see weight trained and is the Leader of this bunch...And for the sake of argument let's say Igors a bit tightly wound...Nerves are running rampant on this day-night about their 'leader,' they joke and taunt about being a bit off course, his stove is roasting them, and they make Igor twitch. Dyatlov is steamed and he physically threatened or ousted the 2, (their coats and boots near Igor and the entry) sent them out where they build a fire till he cools off.
Zina took up for the guys...it's inhuman to make them suffer...she got served a foot plant in the side. She threatened to leave and he blocked passageway and went postal.
(Her diary entry: "Igor all evening was rude, I didn't recognize him. I had to sleep on the wood near the stove."Winking Igor threatened everyone and they make an escape, high tailed out through the side they cut in the tent which incensed him more and he took after them. They stumbled across the 2 left outside, grab a bit of their clothes, run and stumbled into the ravine. Ludmilla runs up the side of the ravine an clunks her chest, tries to make it up by the guys, misses and came down hard on her chin maybe severing her tongue. After Dyatlov run everyone off he pursued Zina who Rustem placed himself between to keep her from harm... Odd man out, Dyatlov is in the middle of everyone, map wise ...

Surprisingly, one of the most extraordinary and astonishing versions came from none other than Lev Ivanov himself. In 1990, the retired Prosecutor published an article, “The Enigma of the Fireballs”, where he admitted that in spring of 1959, under
“When E. P. Maslennikov and I examined the scene in May, we found that some young pine trees at the edge of the forest had burn marks, but those marks did not have a concentric form or some other pattern. There was no epicenter. This once again confirmed that heated beams of a strong, but completely unknown, at least to us, energy, were directing their firepower toward specific objects (in this case, people), acting selectively.”
It is worth noting that later on, Kirilenko professed a lively interest in the UFO’s, and received memos about sightings of unidentified objects from the Chairman of the KGB, Andropov.

From Ivanov :-
I questioned many eyewitnesses who saw this UFO in the sub-polar Urals. By the way, I do not mean that these UFOs are connected with aliens. A UFO is an unidentified flying object, and that’s it. A lot of data speaks of the fact that [the UFOs] can be bursts of energy not understood by modern science, but which affect life and the environment.

@Nigel: I've been reading about BL & it does state that usually there is a thunderstorm. But since you make things up to fit your asinine BL theory, of course it doesn't matter to you what is written. You should watch who you call ignorant as many of your posts point to your own obsessive ignorance. As in saying that "the hikers looked calm" in their death pics. Their mouths are almost all open wide as if they died screaming. And of course, your ignorance in overlooking all their injuries, abrasions, skinned knuckles, crushed skulls, ribs, chest cavity......................"

Never once in all the sites I read did any of the BL injuries that happened to people even remotely was similar to the hikers. There were also "survivors" when the BL incidents occurred. In no way does it show that BL could have been responsible for 9 people's deaths & injuries.

The most rare and mysterious form of lightning is ball lightning. [25] A mix of fire and electricity concentrated in a fireball with a diameter of 10-30 cm, ball lightning usually appears suddenly, even in indoor conditions, during a thunderstorm. It moves quickly for several meters, can change direction, and ultimately disappears sometimes soundlessly and other times with a pop or larger explosive sound. It has a life span of several seconds, and its color is quite variable but most commonly described as white, yellow, or orange.


Ball lightning appears as glowing orbs that seem to occur during thunderstorms, usually following a lightning strike. These floating fireballs shine as brightly as a 100-watt lightbulb; can be white, yellow, orange, red or blue in color and are typically about the size of a small grapefruit, although sightings suggest they can range in size from golf ball to beach ball.
Emanating from the fireball are little tendrils that seem to jerk the ball around as if it was under the power of a spastic puppeteer. They move slowly and erratically and are followed by smoke trails that form spirals around them. And after a moment, they disappear.

But of course, in your theory, the BL forced them out of the tent, made them all walk down a snowy slope without their shoes, coats, gloves......with 2 of them in their underwear & barefoot. Let's see....then the BL beat them up, crushed Rustem's skull on both sides, crushed Luda's ribs on both sides, crushed AK's ribs on one side & removed his eyeballs, removed Luda's tongue & eyeballs, crushed Yuri's chest, snapped one of their necks so it was deformed, slammed Zina across the back like a baton/rifle & continued its compelling force til all was dead.

@nigel... Arguments from ignorance[edit]
(Draws a conclusion based on lack of knowledge or evidence without accounting for all possibilities)
"I take the view that this lack (of enemy subversive activity in the west coast) is the most ominous sign in our whole situation. It convinces me more than perhaps any other factor that the sabotage we are to get, the Fifth Column activities are to get, are timed just like Pearl Harbor ... I believe we are just being lulled into a false sense of security." – Earl Warren, then California's Attorney General (before a congressional hearing in San Francisco on 21 February 1942).
This example clearly states what appeal to ignorance is, although we have proved that the moon is not made of spare ribs, we have not proved that its core cannot be filled with them; therefore, the moon’s core is filled with spare ribs.[4]

All very true, but it would be nice to have an explanation for that stuff (like the BL theory does). However what the murder theory DOES have to explain is the fire and the rav4 being killed by superhuman force.

And then you have all the "curiosities" - condition of the snow, hotspot, burnt trees, tanned skin, burns, three people all expire close to each other ascending the mountain.

I'm not stating them as fact, i'm stating them as part of the BL theory i'm developing (no pun) on this site.

This theory has it that SZ was KGB, equipped with a secret camera he hid from the others to photograph lights in the sky (probably that had been previously reported by military aircrew and known from mansi legend). So it follows that the camera would be state of the art for that period and SZ would be trained to use it. Hence the difference in quality between SZ's shots and YK and RS's efforts. That this photography was his mission explains the detour.

Nigel Evans 13-09-2017 12:52 (GMT)
and the reason that the detour was necessary was because of the high winds whipping up the snow/graupnel. Just 200m down from the ridge puts a lot of whirling snow between you and an aerial object. The original published route was to make for Otorten in a fairly straight line through the higher reaches of the forest near the treeline. But the high winds coming from the West killed that idea and forced an alternative route following the ridge. This is why ID records in the last entry of the diary "We had supper right in the tent. It's warm. It is hard to imagine such a comfort somewhere on the ridge, with a piercing wind, hundreds kilometers away from human settlements.".

FYI.... Gulags name changed and the release of non violent offenders doesn't mean squat. Its well known prisoners have escaped and found refuge or hid out in the backwoods of the urals. These people can and have been in the wild for decades, so even a name change in early 50s is moot.

The debate of violence, the definition of 'violent', and the interpretation of the autopsies can go on for an eternity. Can we move forward now boss?
Nigel Evans 13-09-2017 11:59 (GMT)
@LC - i think you might be confusing their use of "violent". They mean not natural, a sudden unexpected event, like a fall or crushed by snow. i.e. accident = violent.

As said MANY TIMES now, the BL theory has several versions and the simplest is that BL scares them away from the tent and the rest is just bad luck, falling from trees, crushed by snow. Although i would favour a BL theory that kills the rav4 with an explosion.

Also as said before if it was a military accident/cockup then there's ABSOLUTELY NO NEED for that expensive investigation.

And it's hard to explain why SZ needed a secret camera apparently setup for night photography. Even why he was there at all. Couldn't be to stop a possible defection, one against several others with knives/axes. He was there to photograph something, that's why they made an uncomfortable detour depriving themselves of a night in the forest with a warm stove.

Loose-Cannon 13-09-2017 11:52 (GMT)
And for the record, I never stated "beat to death"... I said "beat to shit".

We all know 5 of them froze to death and their injuries were not the cause if death. When you don't read "cause if death is violent", that does NOT mean there were no injuries with a possible cause of hand/hand combat. It just means said injuries didn't cause the heart to stop.

Please note... The methanol theory does not explain the injuries of the tent3 or cedar2. I am exploring any and all theories simultaneously.

From the official files - "Decision on the termination." - This seems to be the formal closing statement of the DPI investigation. It is the official result of circa 30 men (supplied by helicopters at huge cost) investigating for three months.

"and, as it was established in the subsequent forensic expertise, the leeward side of the tent where the tourists were headlong , was cut from the inside in two places, in areas that provide a free exit of a person through these sections."

"Neither traces of the struggle nor the presence of other people were found in the tent or near it."

"Forensic medical examination found that Dyatlov, Doroshenko, Krivonischenko and Kolmogorov died from the action of low temperature (frozen), none of them had physical injuries, not counting minor scratches and abrasions. Slobodin had a crack in the skull 6 cm long, which had spread to 0.1 cm, but Slobodin died from cooling."

"The investigation did not establish the presence on February 1 or 2, 1959 in the area of ??the "1079" height of other people, except for the group of tourists Dyatlov. It is also established that the population of Mansi, living in 80-100 km from this place, is Russian friendly, presents tourists, lodges, helps them, etc. The place where the group died, in winter time it is considered Mansi unsuitable for hunting and reindeer breeding."

"Given the absence of external injuries and signs of struggle on all corpses, the presence of all the values ??of the group, and also taking into account the conclusion of forensic medical examination of the causes of death of tourists, it should be considered that the reason for the death of tourists was the spontaneous force that tourists were unable to overcome ."

"Methanol, at last a half decent theory, an explosive vapour being released from perhaps a rocket launch. It gives you a reason for leaving the tent and a cause of an explosion"

Nigel... You know as well as I do that each official report states something similar as follows.


"Death is violent - an accident. SUD.MED.EXPERT OF THE REGIONAL BUREAU OF SUDMEDEKSPERTIZY - signature / REVIVAL / COURT.MED.EXPERT OF THE CITY OF NORTH-URALSK - signature / LAPTEV / "

And another...


"Bodily injuries of the soft tissues of the head region and "bath skin" of the limbs are posthumous changes in the body of Thibault Brignol, which was recently found in the water.
The death of Thibault Brignoles is violent."

And.... Another.

"The death of Zolotarev is violent."

And another!!

"The body injuries found on the body of Kolevatov are in the head area - defects in soft tissues, as well as "bath" skin, are posthumous changes in a corpse that was recently found before it was found in the water.
Kolevatov's death is violent."


So... Your with the case files, but yet you either lie about the contents of the case files, or you do not read them. Which is it?

@Sandy - "I can't understand how anyone that reads & studies all 9 autopsies could possibly think anything else happened BUT that they had the crap just kicked/beat out of them."
I'm with the official report, no signs of violence.
Cold, predation, previous weeks strenuous activity, maybe an internal row and a fight, but not one serious injury that is clearly of human cause.

@LC - "Unbelievable hypocrisy!!! ". Nonsense, your answer was in an earlier post?

@KMM - "After this time, not a single record and not a single photograph was found. " - i think YK's and RS's blobs were assumed to be erroneous. Could be correct of course. Assuming SZ's photos are genuine, it's probable that they were KGB property and the police/prosecutor never saw them.

@LC - Methanol, at last a half decent theory, an explosive vapour being released from perhaps a rocket launch. It gives you a reason for leaving the tent and a cause of an explosion. But you've got to explain the time lag between the tent and the explosion, afaik the 2yuris need to be dead for about an hour before turning for the lividity to be incorrect. The vat of alcohol is supposed to be to wash radioactive dust off. Russian submariners were apparently given a ration each week to wash with. Haven't come across the other chemicals being discussed before, could have been some embalming process perhaps, think this is common in the US today.

note about the gulags:
--- they closed in 1956 -- or at least the Wiki site on "gulag": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulag says the last administrator was: " Sergei Yegorovich Yegorov October 5, 1954 – April 4, 1956 " Of course there were other (un-named)systems until the 1980's. The map on the gulag page doesn't show any old gulag camps near where the 9 tourists were in the Urals. Of interest might be this Wiki on the Norilsk Uprising of 1953 -- non violent and no weapons : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norilsk_uprising

or this on the political relaxing in the 1950's : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khrushchev_Thaw this is a time when Khrushchev was closing down the old Stalin system of repression. So we are left with no gulag prisoners in 1959, and no motivation for any ex-prisoners to kill anyone. Soviets were happy with the way the government was opening up.

Secret order deputy. prosecutor of the Sverdlovsk region Yu.N. Achimin to investigate the involvement of Mansi in the death of the Dyatlov group
Deputy Prosecutor of the Sverdlovsk Region for Special Forces Yu.N. Achimin gives a secret task to the deputy head of the Ivdel police department of the Interior Ministry, Major Bizyayev, to investigate Mansi, who might have witnessed the incident at Mount Oorten.

On the basis of this instruction, the police detain several people and torture them in the cold, knocking out their testimony about what they could see or know about the incident, in fact, the police authorities intimidate them. But after a while, making sure that people do not know anything about the incident, they release them.

And.... There is your melted and refrozen crunchy ice. You should recognize the boulder located just east of the tent location.

"4 days members of the route-qualification commission of the All-Union Tourist Section from Moscow K. Bardin and E. Shuleshko, along with Maslennikov E.P. conducted a thorough survey of the entire terrain heights of 1079 and 880, the valleys of the 4th tributary of Lozva and the shores bounding it, the pass from Lozva to Auspiyu, the valley of the river.

Its science! Two autopsies!



"The act of investigating the corpse of Slobodin Rustem was written as if by a carbon copy with the acts of investigating the corpses of Dyatlova, Kolmogorova, Doroshenko and Krivonischenko.
After the autopsy of the dead was done in Ivdel, the corpses were sent to the Sverdlovsk military morgue, where they conducted a second autopsy to determine the causes of death.
The morgue, to identify the bodies of Igor Dyatlov and Rustem Slobodin, the tenth participant of the campaign Yuri Yudin arrived. He noticed the dark brown color of the uncovered and processed corpse of Igor Dyatlov, the color of Rustem Slobodin's unprocessed corpse was ordinary. Later, the unusual dark color of all the corpses will be spoken by those present at the funerals of the children.
In the acts of SME, the color of the skin of corpses is described as reddish purple, after the morgue the color of the corpses changed and acquiredbrown shade, which was noticed at the funeral. Methanol in the gastrointestinal tract is converted dangerous poison - formaldehyde, This poison was in the corpses. To neutralize formaldehyde potassium permanganate (manganese) is used. When formaldehyde reacts with potassium permanganate, a violent reaction occurs accompanied by a high temperature, as a result of which formaldehyde rapidly boils and evaporates. Skin color acquires a tan color.
To treat the corpses in order to oxidize the methyl alcohol and volatilize the formaldehyde bodies, apparently potassium permanganate (potassium permanganate) was used. After treatment with manganese corpses acquired a brownish color, this unusual dark color surprised those present at the funeral."

Now this sorta stuff is INTERESTING!!



"Sud.med.expert of the regional forensic medical examination bureau Revived
Prosecutor of Sverdlovsk Region State Counselor of Justice of the 3rd class Klinov
Prosecutor criminalist of the regional prosecutor's office jr. counselor of justice Ivanov, witnesses: Gordo, Naskichev

The re-established put a seal of the forensic expert on the document.
The case was made, the true cause of death is hidden ...
The role of the orderly in the Ivdelsky morgue, due to lack of it, had to be done by Korotaev Vladimir Ivanovich.
He worked with corpses to hand over to Sverdlovsk the bodies of those killed for histology (the conclusion of which is not in the case).

His, a 22-year-old investigator, then surprised by one fact - after the opening of every corpse, everyone went about being washed with ethyl alcohol. For this, a barrel with alcohol was brought to the morgue.

Oxidation of methanol in the body occurs with the formation of stronger poisons - formaldehyde and formic acid. Antagonist (neutralizer, antidote) of methanol is ethanol (ethyl alcohol), which competes with methanol for oxidative enzymes and delays the formation of toxic metabolites of methanol.
When methanol hits the body or hands, they must be washed off with plenty of water. When methanol hits special equipment. clothes, it should be removed, washed in warm water, and the body washed in a shower at least 15 / pminut.

Morgue of the "p / y H-240" section of Ivdel. Korotaev V.I. was present at the autopsy of the bodies.



There was no soul in the Ivdel morgue, so it was easier and more effective - the methanol labeled with radioactive nuclide, which was saturated with frozen bodies, and which could accidentally remain on the bodies of medical workers, was neutralized with the help of ethanol.

In Ivdel at that time there was Henrietta Eliseevna Churkina, her Korotaev VI. asked to make an examination of the tent.
She drew attention to a strange shade of clothes of the dead, hung up after processing on the street.

I was present at the medical examination of corpses, which was conducted by Boris Revived. I remember well, when they took off their clothes and hung them on ropes, we immediately noticed that she had some strange light purple hue, although she was of very different colors.

I asked Boris: "Do not you think that the clothes have been processed?" He agreed.

In order to exclude the possibility of erroneous use of methanol as a spirit beverage, chemical ink or another colorant of dark color, which is readily soluble in methanol, is added to it at a rate of 2-3 liters per 1000 liters of methanol.

All information from Ivdel ceased, all lived only by rumors.
Only now I understand that at this time chemical analyzes of the first 3 people found were discovered, something was discovered that was secret, that it was necessary to hide and therefore all information was classified ...

Loose-Cannon 13-09-2017 01:21 (GMT)
KMM..

You are correct... The order in which the photos were taken have been mixed and matched over the years. I would assume the investigators knew full well the order in which they were taken and this proves without a doubt no photos were taken after this point. In other words.... The 'three heads' exposure was either (a) done during the developing process (in the lab) to snap the wound/ready shot before access to the film cartridge was possible, or (b) the exposure sequence came sometime before the tent was erected. In other words..... No picture was taken within the tent. End of debate with no conspiracy needed. Facts are facts Nigel. Your going to have to deal with them one way or another.

In one of the cameras, a frame (made last), which depicts the moment of excavation of snow for the installation of the tent, was preserved. Considering that this frame was shot with an exposure of I / 25 seconds, with a diaphragm of 5.6 at a film sensitivity of 65 Un.

Hi all! I have read here where a few of you believe the 9 hikers couldn't have been murdered by people since there "were no other footprints found". It is very possible to brush away your footprints in snow.

I was just posting about footprints to show that none were found around the tent, where I would think would of been the place with the most accumulation of footprints. Whether they were removed by the weather or other individuals, IDK

I thought I had read this particular book, "Don't Go There" but guess I didn't. I am buying the Kindle version after reading most of the comments. I don't agree it was natives but it appears there's a lot of good info about her murdered by people theory.

You should respect Nigel a bit more. The man has been nothing but helpful on this subject such as it is. I check in daily to read about the new discoveries of Nigel and the "team".

Helpful to whom exactly? His followers?

I can see you have great admiration for Nigel but I will have you know, HE is the person who is incapable of respective discourse. The very second I walked into this echo chamber hornets nest, I was patronized, mocked, and disrespected. Interestingly enough, I am one of very few posters who is very comfortable in stating 'I don't know exactly what happened". I am not invested in a solitary theory in which prohibits my ability to rationalize all possibilities. Its that simple. I have noticed the BL group are very arrogant and disrespectful to anyone that does not drink from the same koolaid bowl. Heck, I even complimented Nigel a few time and the action was returned with a high/mighty arrogance in which I haven't seen in quite some time. John is just a straight up narcissistic asshole..... I call it how I see it. Just how I roll.

"User45 - nothing wrong with some harmless banter over the internet. If LC has a problem it's, well lets call it "theory envy".

I do not envy any particular theory or person.... Enough said.

@LC - "specially when desperate." - i'm happy to consider any sensible theory, particularly if it has photographs"

You are desperate in which you conduct your research, or shall I say fact inventing. Grasping for any minute unknown to twist out of common sense and often content to force-fit the BL narrative. Yeah u expect readers to read your post, but ignore theirs.

From what I see, you don't have supporting photographs of your theory either. When in doubt, throw it out.... Not when in doubt, make shit up in efforts to drive a false narrative. I give respect to those who return the favor, you burn that bridge with me and I'll be on that ass like a fly on shit.

@Sandy...
This is exactly the hypocrisy I speak of. They will only observe what is visible through a narrow looking glass and reject all conflicting information and evidence. This isn't a forum of ideas and constructive conversation. It is a forum of walking the BL line or face the plank.

That pic of what some thought was a Yeti, looks like a person. You can tell by studying it that the arms are too skinny to be a Yeti. It looks like a human with maybe a ski mask on & winter attire.

This would coincide perfectly that the hikers were being stalked by people. I thought this pic was a hoax but now realize it really was on NTB's camera. This is proof they weren't the only people out there.

Hi all! I have read here where a few of you believe the 9 hikers couldn't have been murdered by people since there "were no other footprints found". It is very possible to brush away your footprints in snow.

If you are just 2 or 3 guys and in no hurry you can even step into each others tracks to appear to be only one person. Of course that wouldn't work for a whole platoon. If you have even more time, your last man can blend in your tracks by swiping through them with a pine branch manually. Less effective but faster would be simply dragging a branch behind you.
The traces of the swiping will be visible but less than tracks and will also disappear faster over time with more snow or wind.

This is most efficiently done by using snowshoes or skis and moving in a single file. If the elements are with you, wind and snow will erase the trail. There was plenty of time for further snowfall to have fallen & erased the prints also. We know it snowed a lot more as the last 4 bodies were found under 12 FEET of SNOW.

@Nigel:
Since you are always quoting from her book, why did you never mention that she also believes the hikers were murdered by people?

Svetlana Oss in her book "Don't Go There" believes that Khanty hunters who had taken Agaric Fly to get themselves in a killing mood killed Rustem Slobodin with a dynamic head kick and inflicted the chest injuries by jumping or bouncing on the chests of Yuri Doroshenko, Lyuda Dubinina and Semyon Zolotoryov. Svetlana claims, they wanted to avoid shooting so as to foil investigators which is why they sanitized the tent area, covering their footprints with snow and making the cuts themselves, thereafter forcing the tourists to discard clothing and footwear which is why Dyatlov's jacket and flashlight were found outside the tent.

Svetlana interprets frame №17 from Thibeaux Brignolles camera as a hunter who was following the group briefly emerged and this photo was taken before the figure retreated back into the woods. This would also explain their choice to pitch the tent away from the treeline. Zolotaryov and Thibeaux were almost fully clothed and wearing some kind of footwear.

I don't believe it as Kanty hunters, but agree with everything else she said.

@Nigel: I can't fathom either why you could possibly think anyone would have "theory envy" of your ludicrous BL nonsense. You should use some of Svetlana's quotes on how she thinks the 9 were murdered because she makes perfect sense.

I also reread ALL the hikers' autopsies & wow, only obvious almost all these people had the sh!t hit & kicked out of them. All those hand injuries & body injuries on even the ones that died from hypothermia. Like one of the experts had stated "bodies don't usually look like this & have all these hand to hand fight injuries when they're found perished from hypothermia".

I can't understand how anyone that reads & studies all 9 autopsies could possibly think anything else happened BUT that they had the crap just kicked/beat out of them.

@Jaime: Research "human mutilations". There's especially one (amongst many) where the poor guy was found deceased & most of his organs were "suctioned" out, amongst other weird, never seen b/4 suctions like that. I do believe at least that that poor soul was murdered by something not of this world. The cattle/animal mutations were done in just the same way. I do not believe other people have the knowledge/tools to perform these exact same mutations.

On the stone ridges, the tracks disappeared, and below the stones they appeared again, and then were lost. The tracks were very well distinguishable. In separate tracks it was evident that the person was walking either barefoot or in one cotton socks, because the toes were imprinted.
KMM 12-09-2017 17:58 (GMT)
Starting from the tent at 30-40 meters, there are obvious, well-discernible traces of people's feet. Tracks ran parallel chains close to each other, as if people were going holding on to each other. The chains of traces stretched as if in two directions - 6 or 7 pairs of tracks we counted from the tent down into the hollow, and 2 more pairs of tracks were left to the left of them, about 20 meters away. Then these tracks (2 and 7 pairs) meters through 30-40 came together and did not diverge any more.

First its canvas cooling, then canvas warming?. Whats next... Canvas change?

Cooling, welp lets see here...its Siberia, expect it to be cold. However your supposed 'heat' source is present in the "picture", so your cooling idea wouldn't apply at the time of the "photo".

Again... This is thick canvas and not your daughters tutu. Canvas by the very way its woven, does not curl as you imply. Your again reaching for extremely thin straws. But hey, at least I read your post.

"I've already proven there was only one tear top/bottom in the middle of the tent from snow weight" - rolls eyes again. No i haven't read your recent stuff, as said if it's not concise i'm not reading it.

@all - As John has proposed the fabric could have been getting warm/hot which might have encouraged curling. Also if this was after one end of the tent had collapsed then the fabric would have been quite relaxed anyway.

So my theory would be that with the side of the tent at say 45 degrees, SZ pushed the lens past the top of the slit but still capturing the curled bottom. The shot being quite saturated from the luminosity of the object but still clearly showing the weave of the canvas both with light passing through it and on the edge of the cut.

Wrt the point that the film could simply be water damaged. The theory is that SZ was KGB seconded to the group with a specially provided camera for night photography which explains why Yudin never saw him use it for recreational photos. So it follows that this camera wasn't a standard commercial device but would have been engineered to a military specification. It was very probably waterproof.

Loose-Cannon 12-09-2017 06:04 (GMT)
In the official reports... Only 8 tracks were found leading away from the tent. The main reasons why I don't think an outside group of people killed them is because of the lack of prints, no items were taken (including money), and I just dont see a motive. The only 'slight' motive I would contemplate is a group of gulag escaped prisoners. They don't exactly like the state to begin with and these tourists were the communist pride and joy future of the party. I can see them not having firearms and wanting to silence a group of fanatical communists that possibly discovered their whereabouts. On other group of folks that give me the willies is the loggers at the logging camp they stayed at..... Those mugs look like they are a few fries short of a happy meal for certain!

Alot of this is the reason why I think its possible for the murderer to have come from within the group. There are several diary entries that to me are clear signs of Igor not acting right, and you have several guys listing after the same gal... Stranger things have happened!

All in all, the BL theory for me is taking a back seat. The more I research it and tue more Nigel and John go on about the fantastical speculation its built upon, the more I'm turned off of the idea.

There were no tracks discernible around the tent from the Dyatlov group or anyone else.
Daniel 12-09-2017 03:35 (GMT)
Vinny, I wouldn't be so sure this is humans even though I am not putting out a theory of my own. If it was other humans who attacked the group, how come they didn't leave any tracks around the tents? I could see Mansi hunters possibly killing them for their things (possibly) but they still would have left tracks by the tents as the other hikers left tracks, and what reason would other Russians have for being all the way out there? I don't think the mystery is quite as simple as that

Loose-Cannon 11-09-2017 22:28 (GMT)
Nigel, thats not how canvas works and NONE of the holes in the tent correspond to the pattern displayed in the 'three heads' photo.... Not in orientation or spacing.

Besides, I've already proven there was only one tear top/bottom in the middle of the tent from snow weight. AND, the student search team dug it out with a shovel and axe..... The shovel and axe cut the holes on the inside of the canvas because by then, sections of it were pealed/ripped back and the inside was then facing outward. Don't you read my posts? Its all right thar in the case files.

Nigel Evans 11-09-2017 18:58 (GMT)
@LC - fabric can curl when it's cut.
No the horizontal lines are illuminated wind blown snow/graupnel passing across the shutter speed modulating as they rotate. So the slit base is horizontal.

@LC - atmospheric aerosols? Doesn't explain the three heads?

@all - Here's a video from the Chilean Navy of a "UFO" demonstrating in infra red what i think SZ was photographing that night. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VP8WiVxRu3U . 3.00 thru to 5.43.

Here the glow discharge is sub luminous but demonstrates how the rapidly it can change shape.

So one photo could be a blob, another is a plane, another is a misty mesh etc etc.

Remember if he was a KGB field operative with a secret camera then he wasn't capturing the night sky for the fun of it. Every frame had to be justifiable, he only had say 33 frames. Nothing got wasted. Imo every one of those photos are shots of what he was seeing that night.

Ill just keep posting these until you address the facts and own it.... lets start with this one.



How about Brusnitsyn.... the young tourist from the university with the party that found the tent. SURE LC, LETS GET IT ON!


"Interrogation of witness Brusnitsyn
The guys at an attempt to climb the ridge height of 1079 found an abandoned tent. In the camp they brought three cameras, Slobodin's jacket, an ice ax, which was stuck near the tent, a flashlight found near the tent and a jar of alcohol.
At four o'clock we were caught by a group of Kurikov with a walkie-talkie. A radiogram was immediately transmitted about what happened to the coordinates of the tent. By radio, we were given the task to organize a landing site for the helicopter landing and choose a place for the camp for 50 people."

Welp.... ya found the tent, rummaged around a bit, found the ALCOHOL of course! next..


"The tent is placed on a slope of height 1079. Entrance to the south. The steepness of the slope in this area approx. 20-25 °. Depth of snow up to 1.5 meters. A shallow pit was dug for the horizontal installation of the tent."

Welp.... It was actually South East and more East then South, but I digress! #%&@ these people are dense... next


"Under the tent put 8 pairs of skis down attachments. Thanks to the dense snow cover, the tent was installed very firmly. Everything is covered with already clammy snow, except for the southern skate, fortified on a ski pole and tied for a pair of skis. Under the northern ridge there was no stick."

Wait.... no stick! WHERE DID THIS BATON GO? Nigel will tell you it was broken to make super tactical BL capturing tripod. As if they had a VIDEO camera and deeded to keep it steady. (eyes roll) lets get it...


"Snow was chosen with the help of skis and ski poles. Ten people worked without any system. In most cases ("things" are crossed out - note ed.) Everything was pulled out directly from under the snow, so it was very difficult to determine where and how each thing lay. "

Did I read that correctly? "it was very difficult to determine where and how each thing lay" Good to know.... next!


" First they took out several blankets, frozen in a ball, then buckets, a stove, 2-3 sacks of breadcrumbs, boots, etc. The things in the tent are arranged in the following order. At the bottom of the bed rucksacks. Then 2-3 blankets. Next were the quilted jackets and personal belongings of the participants. Buckets, stove, ax, saw were lying at the entrance to the right. Here was part of the products: rusks, sugar, condensed milk, untied bag with a loin. The rest of the products were in the far right corner. Most of the shoes ("lying" - crossed out, comment ed.) Were placed on the left side of the tent. Two pairs - right in the middle. The rest of the things are in disorder in the tent."

2-3 sacks of breadcrumbs!!! Holy crap thats alot of rye bread!
("lying" - crossed out, comment ed.)... Ive seen this before.. It means the person being interviewed recanted or otherwise corrected a statement on the spot. (thumbs up).
"The rest of the things are in disorder in the tent." Hey hey, HEY! The top brass man-in-charge of the tent investigation just told us there was no struggle, but yet the tent contents are in DISORDER! Leaving the tent in a hurry, a scuffle, are just sloppy Johns... I mean sloppy pigs? Whatever, you decide. next!


"Apparently the group was in the final stage of dressing and preparing for the night at the time of the incident. In the near half found a few crusts from the loin. There are rusks scattered all over the tent."

OMG... Rusks all over the place!!! What the hell were these people doing!!! LOL. moving one... oh you gonna like this one Nigel, trust me.


"Above all things lay a ski-slit cut into several pieces, apparently, the northern end of the tent was strengthened on it. Decide on the spoilage of the stick, given that in the group there were no substitutes it is possible only under special circumstances."

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA....... The stick (ski pole) was used as an anchor on the Northern end of the tent!!!! Actually was North West but I digress again!!! THE POINT IS..... NO FREAKING TRIPOD FOR BL VIDEO FOOTAGE. Read the GD case files!!!!!


"Where the tent was set, were about 5 hours. Nespasha dug hole, and calmly prepared for bed. About 7 o'clock something unusual still unprecedented by anybody has forced tourists to leave a tent in a panic. Running stripped, in bad weather at night from a single warm corner is possible only under pain of death. This strange phenomenon (light penetrating through the tent, sound, and possibly gases)"

And..... there ya have it. This is the first low-level BL conspiracy to surface... from a kid hiker from the university who heard of (maybe saw) Nigels famous "three heads" photo. He was interviewed some time after the incident mind you and wild stories were apparently everywhere.... You name theory... it was the talk of the town.

Um yeah.... pretty sure we know the story line there hoss.

Successful cover up? Since when does a funeral constitute an unsuccessful coverup? This very site wouldnt exist otherwise. If they wanted to 'publicly' solve it, they would have continued the investigation in open forum. What is this.... upside down world?

Besides... there is ample amount of evidence showing the tourist in fact, did not spy on anything through peepholes, and they quite possibly did NOT cut their way out of the tent in panic. Unfortunately for you, the entire BL theory is based false assumptions. :/ Thats why my posts have gone unchallenged.

here's some thoughts on the Soviet psyche in the 1950's -- from:
http://www.viafanzine.jor.br/site_vf/pag/5/dyatlov_part01.htm

"Those golden years for the Soviet Union were also marked by an incomparable blossoming of sports tourism, especially among students. In 1957, sports tourism was officially introduced in the USSR's Single Sports Classification. The new sport quickly became popular: it gave them the opportunity to visit new places, expand their personal horizons, make new friends and chat intimately with old friends around a fire, sing songs of their own making to the sound of a guitar, their resistance and perfect their physical preparation. Clubs specialized in sports tourism were created in almost all schools and in all institutions of higher education. Twice a year - during the winter and summer holidays - crowds of young men in waterproof jackets could be found all over the country, leaving with their backpacks for the next walk.

The UPI (Russian acronym for the Ural Polytechnic Institute), now Ural State Technical University, had prominent athletes at that time. The UPI is based in the city of Sverdlovsk (now Yekaterinburg), as it was called during the Soviet era. The city was, and still is, an important technological center, inclusive, for the military-industrial complex. In the Institute that excelled in generating so many talents for Soviet engineering, Boris Yeltsin, who would become the first president of Russia, was formed in 1955.

In December of 1958, a group of university students, all experienced tourists, planned a great tourist hike in the third and highest category of difficulty. They would pass through the north of the Sverdlovsk Oblast, seeking the summit of Mount Otorten.

Preparations for this trip extended over the months of December 1958 and January 1959, during which students were still taking their exams. The walk should only be carried out during the winter holidays.

The number of participants changed several times, as some of the students who signed up for the walk later, and for no apparent reason, refused to participate. This is a curious fact, since, according to statistics, on planes, ships or trains that suffered accidents, they did not usually present 16 to 17 percent of the passengers, as was also the case in this tragic case.

In this way, instead of the planned 14 participants, Igor Dyatlov led the walk, 10 people, six UPI students, three young engineers, who only six months had received their diplomas. Also at the beginning of the walk, a tourist camp instructor, the oldest of them all, joined the group, Semyon Zolotaryov, 37, known only to Dyatlov.


During the winter holidays of 1959, the same day January 23, several groups of students of the fourth and fifth year of the UPI left for skiing trips in various categories of difficulty.


The group that embarked on a second-rate trek to the southern Ural was led by Mikhail Sharavin, a fourth-year student. By the route of the trip of the third, or higher category of difficulty, by the Ural Polar, followed the group of students of the fourth year, under the direction of Serguei Sogrin. In the similar routes of the third category by the Ural of the North they left at the same time and, in the same wagon of the train, the groups of Yuri Blinov and Igor Dyatlov. Several groups made their trips through the classic routes of the Middle Ural.

Thus, in that winter of 1959, practically all the Ural was covered by a network of ski routes of the tourist section of the UPI sports club. That was a great achievement of amateur student tourism. In particular, they seemed attractive routes by Ural Polar, which was scheduled a new tourist experience for students UPI: it was three winter climbs to the tops of the hills Sablya, Neroyka and Telpos e z.

The route of Igor Dyatlov's group seemed no less attractive: they intended to climb the mysterious mountain of Otorten, the top of the Poyasoviy crest in the Ural of the North. In the mansi language, the name Otorten means "Do not go there".

The members of the group decided to carry out a third-degree walk, that is, in the greatest category of difficulty, dedicating it to the next XXI Congress of the Communist Party of Soviet Union (CPSU). Not only because it was then a popular practice to dedicate some of the personal achievements to the important events of the country, but also because the young people were all members of the Komsomol , the Communist Youth Union. In addition, such dedication gave the group an apparent official status, in opposition to "wild tourism."

----- you can see from this a number of things:

1) these were highly valuable students and engineers.

2) the Urals were full of student tourists that winter.

3) there is NO REASON TO SUGGEST A SECRET SOVIET PLOT TO MURDER THESE STUDENTS.

4) The last thing the Soviet Government wanted was to hear that they all died in a mountaineering accident -- this was a political disaster! The initial response was to go rescue them (they must be lost) and not to cover-up some imagined plot.

----- the semi-official status meant that there would be publicity and etc. -- what the authorities feared the most happened: they all died in a disaster. The central authorities wanted to solve this -- not cover it up.

----- if there was any cover-up it was unsuccessful to say the least --- see the many photos of the huge public funeral for the group.

----- if there were any to blame --- WHO ? --- maybe some junior party member ? --- They found none to blame.

Actual photo of two such tests above... All I am saying is that this could very well be the source of many if not most atmospheric 'BL" phenomenon in the Ural area.

Even more interesting is the substances used in such tests.
Loose-Cannon 09-09-2017 16:51 (GMT)
"From historical documents:

A year ago, before the tragic events of February 21, 1958, the USSR launched for the first time a domestic single-stage liquid geophysical rocket R-5A intended for research and study of the upper layers of the atmosphere associated with flights at high speeds and altitudes of about 500 km using the method artificial luminous clouds (ISO).

The essence of this method was to observe the optical effects that occur when certain chemicals are released into the atmosphere. Thus, in the emission of alkali metal vapor and some other substances into the sunlight-illuminated layers of the atmosphere, resonance radiation appeared, the intensity of which at each point of space is related to the local concentration of the atoms of the substance, which made it possible to visualize the spatio-temporal structure of the formed IRF.
By photographic and spectral observations of such clouds, one can obtain information about the parameters of the atmosphere-the velocity and direction of the wind, the parameters of molecular and turbulent diffusion, temperature, electric field,

Picture of artificial aerosol clouds, photo 1Picture of artificial aerosol clouds, photo 2
Observations of artificial aerosol clouds, luminous due to scattered solar radiation, made it possible to study the regularities of scattering and transport of finely dispersed dust particles.
The simplicity and clarity of the ISO method led to its rapid spread, especially for measurements of wind speed, molecular and turbulent diffusion. Data on wind and molecular diffusion began to be obtained practically in all experiments carried out with the help of rockets, in which clouds of alkali metal atoms were created.

When using different compounds for the creation of ISO, the method of artificial formations could be applied in a very wide range of heights - practically from the surface of the earth (smoke clouds) and up to several hundred and even thousands of kilometers (barium, lithium and other artificial glowing clouds). Nitrates of alkali metals (NaNO3, KNO3, CsNO3), azides (for example - LiN3, BaN6), peroxides (for example - BaO2), alumina (AlO) were used to create the IRS.

In the USSR IS Shklovsky and VG Kurt conducted an experiment on the creation of a sodium cloud at an altitude of 430 km in 1958 and for the first time determined the density of the atmosphere at this altitude.

What could be the connection between ISO and the fireballs that were spoken about in the Urals at the time?
Artificial clouds (ISO) were created to study and predict phenomena in the upper atmosphere in regions remote from meteorological stations. Perhaps these atmospheric studies with the help of ISO were necessary during flights of air transport over the Ural mountains.

In 1959, artificial clouds could be observed above the mountains of the Urals in the form of "fireballs".

What happened then?

Are the cases of delivery of a dangerous cargo to oil and gas fields by air transport known after this tragic event?

Yes, they are known."

"Q. Why would they seal the area if it had just been murder?

I didnt say they would seal it off 'if it was muder'. I am not stuck in a box and can freely explore other possibilities without a bias narrative clouding my judgment. They could have sealed it off if the surface evidence suggested military influence, some type of contamination, or both.


Q. If it was military testing why spend all that money investigating?"

"If the state was ultimately responsible to one degree or another,"...
They wouldn't have spent a small fortune investigating it... They'd have just made something up."

Incorrect. You need all bodies and to do at least a preliminary investigation to determine whether or not a coverup is even required. You are assuming they would have known instantly. An investigation is required to also prove no gov involvement. The very fact the case was closed so rapidly, area sealed off, and the case not revealed for decades suggests the gov had a motive to hide their involvement. Im not saying agents killed them. I saying there are many ways in which the gov can intimately have a neg effect on the civilian population without intention.

Hi everyone.I found this article about Dyatlov pass and I am a bit confused.“We discovered that the tent was half torn down and covered with snow. It was empty, and all the group’s belongings and shoes had been left behind.” This observation continued with investigators noting at least eight sets of footprints leading from the tent, all the way to the treeline. Two other pairs of footprints, completely barefoot, were followed to a large pine tree." I was thinking that the investigators found 8 pairs of footprints.I can`t figure out whose are the other two pairs.

Should read - "What is not stated is that the police investigator Ivanov wanted to pursue the spontaneous force = fireballs line of enquiry further but was formally told to forget everything he knew by his superior and remove all references to the fireball subject from the official report."
Nigel Evans 09-09-2017 14:23 (GMT)
From the official files - "Decision on the termination." - This seems to be the formal closing statement of the DPI investigation. It is the official result of circa 30 men (supplied by helicopters at huge cost) investigating for three months.

"and, as it was established in the subsequent forensic expertise, the leeward side of the tent where the tourists were headlong , was cut from the inside in two places, in areas that provide a free exit of a person through these sections."

"Neither traces of the struggle nor the presence of other people were found in the tent or near it."

"Forensic medical examination found that Dyatlov, Doroshenko, Krivonischenko and Kolmogorov died from the action of low temperature (frozen), none of them had physical injuries, not counting minor scratches and abrasions. Slobodin had a crack in the skull 6 cm long, which had spread to 0.1 cm, but Slobodin died from cooling."

"The investigation did not establish the presence on February 1 or 2, 1959 in the area of ??the "1079" height of other people, except for the group of tourists Dyatlov. It is also established that the population of Mansi, living in 80-100 km from this place, is Russian friendly, presents tourists, lodges, helps them, etc. The place where the group died, in winter time it is considered Mansi unsuitable for hunting and reindeer breeding."

"Given the absence of external injuries and signs of struggle on all corpses, the presence of all the values ??of the group, and also taking into account the conclusion of forensic medical examination of the causes of death of tourists, it should be considered that the reason for the death of tourists was the spontaneous force that tourists were unable to overcome ."


What is not stated is that the police investigator Ivanov wanted to pursue the spontaneous force = fireballs line of enquiry further but was formally told to forget everything he knew by his superior.

So that's it, either the state got the investigation wrong (unlikely), OR they covered something up because of a state action (e.g. military testing) OR they wanted to investigate something in secret and shutdown the public investigation and closed the area for three years. The huge cost rules out imo a state crime or military accident no need to spend that kind of money if you already know the answer. So the latter is what was going on.

Another way of looking at it.....


"To carry out the investigation, the young investigator VI Korotaev. was given a rugged tent, torn by search engines, which was placed in the Lenin room. http://image.ibb.co/mO7xia/pal0.jpg

The tent was in terrible condition, with multiple tears and cuts, in some places there were punctured and burned holes, and 2 large pieces of canvas were cut / torn from its side. It is impossible to imagine how it was possible to conduct research on the tent, after it was ruined by search students.

Earlier, I noted that the actions of student search engines who parried the tent and injured her, no one controlled, so for the investigation it was incorrect to investigate the state of the tent in the Lenin room.

Thus, during the study of the tent, as prosecutor Ivdel Tempalov VI claimed, there were no incisions in the tent.
However, it is worth noting that on the windy side, ie. from the side of the spur, the tent was torn in the middle part, and, as Tempalov noted, it was brought at first glance by dense snow. This is the only place where Tempalov discovered damages in the tent, which means there were no cuts from which the tourists were escaping from the tent, there was no tent!

Sections and huge holes in the tent on the other side of the spur appeared after Tempalov VI. He examined the tent and instructed the students to collect it and all the things and load it into the helicopter. The tent was frozen to dense snow, so the students cut out and pulled it out of the frozen snow and ice.
Then, according to the testimonies of the search engines, the tent dragged to the helicopter to deliver it to Ivdel for research.

Those who saw the tent after the search engine students "worked" with it attributed the cuts made by the search engines to Igor Dyatlov's group. Then, based on this false "fact", a legend was invented that Igor Dyatlov's group cut the tent during its departure.

In fact, the tent was intact and the group left it in an organized manner. Things were all brought into the tent, and the entrance to the tent was closed.
The tent itself was not torn by the wind, and only from one side, from the side of the spur, it was pressed down by dense snow, resulting in a large rupture, the reason for the appearance of which just needed to be thoroughly explored ..."


Would ya imagine that!!..... dense snow build on one side pressing down causing a rupture, along comes the students ripping, tearing, shovels and axe!

I said it once, Ill say it again. For all we know they never 'fled in panic' to begin with and its HIGHLY unlikely they were 'observing' anything outside the tent in whiteout conditions.... remember this?? http://image.ibb.co/fsd69F/dtyjdty.jpg
Loose-Cannon 09-09-2017 02:25 (GMT)
From one of my secret sources....

"Prosecutor Tempalov VI in the presence of AA Chernyshov. and witnesses examined the tent of tourists, compiled a survey report and photographed the tent after all the "investigative" events held two days earlier by the students.

After such actions the students, of course, the tent lost its original appearance, and the consequence of no trace near the tent could no longer detect. The snow around the tent was strewn with search engines, and the tracks were sprinkled ...

In the report of the inspection of the tent, Tempalov, in particular, noted that the stretches of the tent on the south side were intact, while the stretches of the tent on the north side were torn off and the whole second half of the tent was covered with snow. The tent was installed on a level platform excavated by students, with a windy side it was torn in the middle part. In his testimony, Tempalov did not say a word about the tent sections, because there were no incisions!

Tempalov wrote that in the right corner of the tent near the entrance lay food and a flask empty from alcohol or vodka (the smell was felt) and that he had the impression that the students drank vodka and had a snack. This was the first version and an attempt by the investigative authorities to falsify the cause of the death of tourists.

In the blood of students, alcohol was not detected (methyl alcohol - not alcohol, but poison)."


Sounds about right!
AHHHH Mr.Chernyshov was there with Tempalov! Lets see what he says....


"The record of the interrogation of the witness Chernyshov
The tent already had a group of Slobtsov, Karelin, Maslennikov was there.
The search for this day was conducted by Moiseev with the dogs and they found the corpse of Kolmogorova and Dyatlov on the same day."

Great... these are the other fubar tent rummaging students... have to look into them!!! continue..


"On the second day, search groups were organized, and I with the prosecutor Tempalov and with him a man of up to 10 went to excavate the tent.
The tent was discovered on the slope of the peak "1079", 100-150 m from the top to the northeast. At first glance, the tent seemed snowed, but when we looked at it, we saw that the tent on the entrance side held on to the central peg and was well reinforced with ropes. Another of its edges, too, stayed on the wheel, but since The middle of the tent was covered with snow, and the skylights of the tent on the windward side were severely torn, then the edge sank and was under the snow."

You read that?? "skylights of the tent on the windward side were severely torn" WINDWARD SIDE WAS TORN
So with all this talk of high ass winds etc and statements like this..... You telling me there is NO CHANCE of the darn tent ripping from flap flap flappin in the winds for WEEKS rubbing on god knows what inside?? I call major BS man, MAJOR BS! And dont give me the "oh there was eyelets cut to watch the BL" horse crap.... you have no clue where, when or why those smaller three horizontal holes were made! I told you.... READ THE DARN DIARIES! For petes sakes.... here it is again!

DIARY OF ZINA
It was much easier to go yesterday without backpacks,
snow, snow, snow, snow
on the banks froze.
rivers snow snow
.
Lunch was an hour at 4 pm
"After dinner I did just one transfer and stopped to rest. I sewed up the tent. We lay down to sleep. Igor all the time was rude, I just did not recognize him. I had to sleep on the wood near the stove."

This damn tent was riddled with holes and in constant need of sewing repair!!!!! Folding, dragging, wet freeze, unfold, rip, oops.. Its also common to store anchoring gear for the tent folded up with it!

I DIGRESS AGAIN!!! Back to the Chernyshov interrogation!

" In the tent was impossible to shove; all of it was covered with snow and how things were located it was possible to consider only when digging it. The tent was installed capitally. On the snow was prepared a level platform, on the snow laid skiing surface up, on them the bottom of the tent was already lying. In the tent below were laid quilted jackets (aside from the slope), backpacks empty were laid out on the tent. In the same side of the tent (to the slope) each lay personal things."

Right.... I see whats going on here. The items were removed while DIGGING IT... LIKE WITH A FREAKING SHOVEL!! Talking about eye level cut.... Just what is the shovel-head width comparison to those slits Nigel..... Hmmmmmmm?? Think McFly!




More from my secret source... witch is dead on to the case files BTW.

"Tempalov photographed the camera and instructed her to disassemble, put things in their backpacks and move them to the camp ...
We disassembled a ten-man tent covered with a hard snow with shovels!

According to the former judge of Ivdel in 1959 Novokreschenova GV. Korotaev V.I. said that ... "the tent was covered with snow, and the snow was very hard. I had to use an ax, cut it with an ax and, of course, crippled it."

At the same time, there was no system to free the tent from snow. First they took out a few stale blankets, then buckets, a stove, two or three sacks of biscuits, shoes and other things. Things were stacked in backpacks, and dragged the tent to the search engine camp.
Naturally, after such manipulations on the tent, sections and torn pieces could appear."

BINGO..... a complete mishandling of evidence. NOW YOU TELL ME NIGEL... If this tent was flap flap flappin in gale force winds for weeks and a chunk tore back starting at an existing tear/hole OR a student (amateurs first on scene) ripped it open (you admitted they did) and the section was PEALED BACK..... You get after that tent digging it out of hard snow with an AXE AND SHOVEL..... THE CUTS WILL NOW BE ON THE INSIDE OF THE CANVAS THAT WAS PEALED BACK AND COVERED IN SNOW!!!! WOW...

The guys at an attempt to climb the ridge height of 1079 found an abandoned tent. In the camp they brought three cameras, Slobodin's jacket, an ice ax, which was stuck near the tent, a flashlight found near the tent and a jar of alcohol.
At four o'clock we were caught by a group of Kurikov with a walkie-talkie. A radiogram was immediately transmitted about what happened to the coordinates of the tent. By radio, we were given the task to organize a landing site for the helicopter landing and choose a place for the camp for 50 people."

Welp.... ya found the tent, rummaged around a bit, found the ALCOHOL of course! next..


"The tent is placed on a slope of height 1079. Entrance to the south. The steepness of the slope in this area approx. 20-25 °. Depth of snow up to 1.5 meters. A shallow pit was dug for the horizontal installation of the tent."

Welp.... It was actually South East and more East then South, but I digress! #%&@ these people are dense... next


"Under the tent put 8 pairs of skis down attachments. Thanks to the dense snow cover, the tent was installed very firmly. Everything is covered with already clammy snow, except for the southern skate, fortified on a ski pole and tied for a pair of skis. Under the northern ridge there was no stick."

Wait.... no stick! WHERE DID THIS BATON GO? Nigel will tell you it was broken to make super tactical BL capturing tripod. As if they had a VIDEO camera and deeded to keep it steady. (eyes roll) lets get it...


"Snow was chosen with the help of skis and ski poles. Ten people worked without any system. In most cases ("things" are crossed out - note ed.) Everything was pulled out directly from under the snow, so it was very difficult to determine where and how each thing lay. "

Did I read that correctly? "it was very difficult to determine where and how each thing lay" Good to know.... next!


" First they took out several blankets, frozen in a ball, then buckets, a stove, 2-3 sacks of breadcrumbs, boots, etc. The things in the tent are arranged in the following order. At the bottom of the bed rucksacks. Then 2-3 blankets. Next were the quilted jackets and personal belongings of the participants. Buckets, stove, ax, saw were lying at the entrance to the right. Here was part of the products: rusks, sugar, condensed milk, untied bag with a loin. The rest of the products were in the far right corner. Most of the shoes ("lying" - crossed out, comment ed.) Were placed on the left side of the tent. Two pairs - right in the middle. The rest of the things are in disorder in the tent."

2-3 sacks of breadcrumbs!!! Holy crap thats alot of rye bread!
("lying" - crossed out, comment ed.)... Ive seen this before.. It means the person being interviewed recanted or otherwise corrected a statement on the spot. (thumbs up).
"The rest of the things are in disorder in the tent." Hey hey, HEY! The top brass man-in-charge of the tent investigation just told us there was no struggle, but yet the tent contents are in DISORDER! Leaving the tent in a hurry, a scuffle, are just sloppy Johns... I mean sloppy pigs? Whatever, you decide. next!


"Apparently the group was in the final stage of dressing and preparing for the night at the time of the incident. In the near half found a few crusts from the loin. There are rusks scattered all over the tent."

https://www.google.com/search?q=rusks&rlz=1C1AOHY_enUS710US711&oq=rusks&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.2261j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 .
OMG... Rusks all over the place!!! What the hell were these people doing!!! LOL. moving one... oh you gonna like this one Nigel, trust me.


"Above all things lay a ski-slit cut into several pieces, apparently, the northern end of the tent was strengthened on it. Decide on the spoilage of the stick, given that in the group there were no substitutes it is possible only under special circumstances."

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA....... The stick (ski pole) was used as an anchor on the Northern end of the tent!!!! Actually was North West but I digress again!!! THE POINT IS..... NO FREAKING TRIPOD FOR BL VIDEO FOOTAGE. Read the GD case files!!!!!


"Where the tent was set, were about 5 hours. Nespasha dug hole, and calmly prepared for bed. About 7 o'clock something unusual still unprecedented by anybody has forced tourists to leave a tent in a panic. Running stripped, in bad weather at night from a single warm corner is possible only under pain of death. This strange phenomenon (light penetrating through the tent, sound, and possibly gases)"

And..... there ya have it. This is the first low-level BL conspiracy to surface... from a kid hiker from the university who heard of (maybe saw) Nigels famous "three heads" photo. He was interviewed some time after the incident mind you and wild stories were apparently everywhere.... You name theory... it was the talk of the town.
Loose-Cannon 09-09-2017 00:12 (GMT)
Welp... here comes inbound.

From the official case files. You like Maslennikov Eugene Polikarpovich dont you?

"Protocol of interrogation of the witness Maslennikova EP
Most of the tent was occupied by Brusnitsyn, who will tell about the location of things in it better than me. reading that there was a prosecutor of Tempalov at the tent and a sufficient number of people I went down to the search group, tk. It was necessary to activate the search for people. "

Ok, Seems this guy is not the droid we are looking for in regards to whats in the tent... GREAT! ...... continue

"There were 9 backpacks in the Djatlov's tent, 10 pairs of lies, of which 9 pairs under the tent floor, 8 pairs of shoes, 3.5 pairs of boots (7 pcs.), Several tealings and other property.
When the inspection of the tent was over, we dragged her to the helipad at a distance of 600-700 meters. "

DRAGGING! REALLY!?!? Meh, lets go find this Tempalov guy.



"Interrogation of witness Tempalov V.I.
Inspection of the tent showed me that it contains all the personal belongings of the students.
The tent was stretched on skis and sticks, hammered in the snow, its entrance was turned to the south, and from this side the stretches were intact, and the stretches of the tent from the north side were torn off and the whole second half of the tent was covered with snow. The tent had an ice ax, an extra pair of skis. On the tent was a Chinese lantern in the unlit state. 9 backpacks, 9 pairs of skis were found in the tent, all of them were under the tent floor, 8 pairs of shoes, 3.5 pairs of boots, quilted jackets and many biscuits, half a sack of sugar, a large number of concentrates, cereals, soups, etc. , cocoa, axes, saw, cameras, diaries of students, documents and money. At first glance, the tent was covered with snow. It was installed on a platform leveled by the students dug out. A tent with a windy side was torn in the middle part. The bottom of the tent was covered with padded jackets, backpacks and personal belongings of students. In the right corner, near the entrance there was a part of the products: cans of condensed milk, 100 grams of sliced ??fat, rusks, sugar, a flask empty from alcohol or vodka, the smell was felt, just like a jar with a drink (poured?) Prepared for consumption, the cocoa was diluted with water and naturally froze, a large knife was found near the bacon of a sliced ??me"

HOLY SHITBALLS!!.... Did he just testify that the NORTH FACE of the tent was torn?!?!? I thought the ENTIRE BL theory revolved around them escaping to the treeline to the NORTH to escape the BL to the SOUTH!!!! Your BL theory just took a gigantic shit in one sentence! MANY BISCUITS!... two sacks to be exact. but I digres ... lets continue.. Happy


"I installed the knife belonged to the students. I got the impression that the students drank vodka and had a snack. Boots there were in the tent and put near the feet of the students so it seemed to me, there were 7 pieces of felt boots immediately. In the case in the middle of the tent a stove was found. And many other personal belongings of students and public equipment, there were buckets, axes, mugs, cups in the tent. At the top of the tent a Chinese flashlight was found, which was closer to the entrance, near the exit from the tent I found a trace of the fact that one of the students had recovered easily. This track is old."

Wait wait wait..... lets look at this sentence again. "In the CASE in the MIDDLE of the tent a stove was found" WOOT! lts continue..


"Without me no one came to the tent and the tracks near the tent were not ours. I have not established any traces of struggle in the tent. If there was any struggle, it would be natural, something would be installed by me. From this point of view, I carefully searched and inspected the tent, but there were no signs of struggle, at least nothing said about it. The tent was located on the slope of the mountain. Descent from the tent steep and on the nast (dense snow). The descent is 2.5 km. There is no forest on the slope of the mountain, except for rare birches closer to the river. This descent, where in essence there are frequent winds."

Only one on site (at the time he inspected), no struggle (that he could tell), and BIG winds.. gotcha.... carry on.


"At the bottom of the tent 50-60 from us on the slope, I found 8 pairs of traces of people that were carefully examined, but they were deformed due to winds and temperature fluctuations. I failed to establish the ninth track and it was not there. Traces I photographed. They walked down from the tent. Traces showed me that people were walking normally down the mountain. Traces were visible only in the 50 meter section, there were no further them since the lower the mountain the more snow. At the bottom of the mountain flows a river up to 70 cm deep, as if from a ravine in which the depth of snow in places reaches 2 to 6 meters in thickness."

So..... 8 Sets, 9th was not there, and they walked. Awesome! Weird, but Awesome-sauce. next!


"From documents, diaries of students, records of the latter it is clear to me that the students died on February 1 or 2, 1959. From a number of testimonies of witnesses it is clear to me that these days in the mountains and not only in the mountains there was a strong wind and it was very cold . Based on the discovered corpses (in the number of five people), the situation in which they were to me it becomes clear that all the students were frozen, the attack on them is excluded. It's my personal opinion"

Cold as shit and windy as all get-out.... Gotcha! Not attacked... personal opinion.... Great... opinions... Just finds 5 pop-sickle cadavers and makes an assessment. Gee.... I cant help but wonder why no evidence of an attack was looked into on the scene! Mr.Jackwagon saw 5 frozen bodies covered in snow and had his mind made up. COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE!!!! lets go..


"The final opinion can only develop after the discovery and inspection of all other students, i.e. 4 more people."

Oh.... now you start to think about the dumb shit you just said....... sure. Moving on now...


"All students could leave their tent only because in the strong wind someone of them at the time when he left the tent blew the wind and this man raised a cry. The student was frightened, rushed out of the tent and were blown away from her by the wind, but with (...?) -windra they could not get into the tent again. And they froze. Of course, such a conclusion can only be made on the basis of the five corpses of students found. What is the cause of the death of the other 4 students I do not know, because their corpses have not been found yet. If these 4 students die due to freezing, the above version will be correct."

Oh whateva... the translation dates a dump sometimes, but it sounded like another Nigel (I know exactly what was said and done) hub hub comment. Lets see that last part again.

"
What is the cause of the death of the other 4 students I do not know, because their corpses have not been found yet. If these 4 students die due to freezing, the above version will be correct."

BINGO.... you were wrong-duck-dong.

What shall we look into next? Ill find something. TONS to look through.


@John.... Go intercourse yourself with your garden cucumber.
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 23:33 (GMT)
Skulls can fracture in deep freeze (-18c) apparently. The DPI bodies will have easily exceeded this.

http://www.rjlm.ro/doc/07-refrigeration-inducedskullbasefracture.pdf .

Probably applies more to NTB than RS as he had associated haemorrhaging.
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 21:53 (GMT)
@Jaime - i wasn't but this guy was later on :-
"February 27 Maslennikov himself arrived at the tent and started to inspect it with great and meticulous care. A stove lay next to the entrance of the tent, but it was disassembled and in [its] cover. There was a single log outside the tent. We also noticed, almost all their things were in place: a bucket, axes, and cups. In his later testimony, Sharavin added that the stove was full of unburnt wood.

Jaime 08-09-2017 21:45 (GMT)
Nigel, it wasn't? Didn't know you were in tent. The theory is that there were embers that were still live and somehow disturbed when stove was either being disassembled, was knocked over, etc. How people take a slight unknown and come to aliens or fret over a missing tongue baffles me. p.s. Amelia Earhardt likely died at sea
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 21:35 (GMT)
@LC - "I have completely debunked the "hotspot" and you damn well know it."
Only in your head...
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 21:34 (GMT)
@Jaime - what smoke, the stove wasn't in use?
Jaime 08-09-2017 21:27 (GMT)
Or, in my opinion more likely, they cut slits to let smoke out of tent. The only mystery here is why they left the tent. Everything else can likely be explained if one isn't donning a foil hat.
Loose-Cannon 08-09-2017 21:25 (GMT)
"around the hotspot" ROFLMFAO

I have completely debunked the "hotspot" and you damn well know it.

"I don't accept that Zina was hit by a baton, THEY were dragging a sled for days over rough ground with a rope tied around their waist..."

Hope you don't mind, I made a single word in your statement above stand out. You idea is crap because Zina is the ONLY person to have this injury. In addition, YOU READ THE DAMN REPORTS..IT WAS NOT A DAYS OLD BRUISE.

Thats fine... I'll be home in a few hrs and burry this thread with information from a tower PC.
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 21:15 (GMT)
@Jaime - They cut slits to see something out there in the dark". Bit of an oxymoron.
Not really, it was a dark night so whatever they were looking at must of been illuminated.

"IF they were looking out at something that scared them WHY would the go TO that thing."
Maybe it was coming to them? The tracks suggest they went around the hotspot.
Jaime 08-09-2017 21:02 (GMT)
Nigel, really? "They cut slits to see something out there in the dark". Bit of an oxymoron. They left the tent because something in the tent compelled them to do so. IF they were looking out at something that scared them WHY would the go TO that thing. Waiting for one of you to remind us they were on a (snow covered) grassy knoll. Newsflash: Oswald killed JFK, there is no Yeti or Loch Ness monster, no aliens have visited us and, sadly, Elvis is dead.
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 20:53 (GMT)
@KMM - "The final question that has to be answered is: why was one of the group member’s tongue missing? Opinions differ regarding the cause of the disturbing absence of Lyuda Dubinina’s tongue. Some say the tongue was eaten by rodents; others argue it was torn or cut out. Vozrozhdenny himself offered a possible explanation when he wrote in his autopsy report: [There is] damage to the soft tissue of the head, and ‘bath skin’ wrinkling to the extremities are the post-mortem changes (rot and decay) of Ms. Dubinina’s corpse, which was under water before it was found. One might assume that ‘soft tissue of the head’ also means tongue. Every autopsy transcript includes a description of the external and internal parts of the body. The missing tongue was already obvious during the external examination. While the autopsy was performed, the coroner also found several other strange things, which were impossible to observe before cutting the throat open. These were The diaphragm of the mouth and tongue was absent. The upper edge of the sublingual bone was bared. The diaphragm of the mouth is mostly a mylohyoid muscle. It depresses the mandible and elevates the sublingual bone (hyoid), the floor of the oral cavity, and the tongue. It is attached to the hyoid. The coroner Vozrozhdenny saw that the sublingual bone was bared and the mylohyoid muscle was missing only after he performed his internal examination. This assumes that the skin on the throat was intact and no inner injuries were seen: ‘The neck is long and thin. The soft tissue in the neck area is flaccid when palpated.’ This raises two questions. How could the mylohyoid muscle, which adjoins so closely to the skin, decay completely while the skin was not damaged? Tissue cannot rot selectively. Another possibility is that rodents ate it along with the tongue, but in this case, again, their teeth would have damaged the skin. In addition, traces of rodent teeth are very specific, and Vozrozhdenny would have easily recognized them. But he only wrote that ‘the tongue in the oral cavity is absent’, and ‘the diaphragm of the mouth is absent’. It isn’t possible to clarify any of his statements, as he never gave an interview about the autopsy for the rest of his life. It appears likely that someone used a knife to perform the amputation. However, if this is indeed so, it definitely occurred post-mortem, otherwise there would have been profound bleeding. According to Henrietta Churkin, a forensic pathologist present at the autopsy: ‘When it was discovered that Dubinina had no tongue, we wondered even more. I asked Boris [Vozrozhdenny]: “Where could [the tongue] go?” He shrugged his shoulders. It seemed to me he was depressed and even scared.’

Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 20:48 (GMT)
@Jaime - the exit slit was cut top to bottom, the entrance was smaller it's difficult to find a picture of it. They made the right decision if they had to get out fast.

The other slits along the top of the tent (at eye height) were to observe something out there in the dark (only on one side). The three heads photo is imo a photo of it catching the folds and weave of the canvas fabric - http://dyatlov-pass.com/resources/340/gallery/Zolotaryov-camera-01.jpg .
Jaime 08-09-2017 20:32 (GMT)
Nigel, don't agree. Quicker to get out thru flap than cut way out. And explain the small slits
KMM 08-09-2017 20:30 (GMT)
I always dismissed the missing tongue as animal predation without paying much attention to it. I'm beginning to rethink that. The autopsy report should of addressed that and other things. I'm starting to believe the investigation had a agenda to fulfill and crafted the evidence to fit.
(much like nigel does)
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 20:30 (GMT)
@Sandy - YK's nose tip was removed yes? By a scavenger yes? So if there's one then it's reasonable that there could be more damage from scavengers yes?
You are being the blockhead.
Have a good weekend.
Jaime 08-09-2017 20:29 (GMT)
Sandy, inhale. "Aliens don't murder humans that way????" How do they murder them? Facts: they left the tent by cutting their way out, soot was found on tent. ZERO evidence of other people, animals, aliens, avalanche, etc. Can't imagine what you thought of crop circles before they were proven as hoaxes.
Sandy 08-09-2017 20:26 (GMT)
@Nigel: "No other theory stacks up?"

You can't explain the injuries with your BL nonsense. And rats?? Seriously dude?? You REALLY think rats did some of the injuries??

Wow. I'm at a loss for words. Rats did not do that.

You think their corpses looked calm?? I wonder if their parents would agree. Sorry Nigel, but you're a blockhead. You can't be reasoned with as you're one of these people that "always have to be right".

Your BL theory stinks & doesn't match up with anything really. Time for me to leave work & gone til MON!! Please take another look at their deceased pics. These poor people look anything BUT CALM..... They look filled with sheer terror as one would look as they stare death right in the face & know they're going to die right now......
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 20:25 (GMT)
@Jaime - the entrance was a tube that limited speed of exit for one person never mind nine.
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 20:24 (GMT)
@LC - "don't grasp the severity of the temperatures."
The encountered lividity demonstrates that the process was happening that night.
Sandy 08-09-2017 20:20 (GMT)
@Jaime:

They didn't use the stove that last nite.

And it wasn't "something" that blocked their exit, it was "someone(s)" as in human.

With a Yeti, would have been blood all over.
Aliens? They don't murder humans like that.
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 20:17 (GMT)
@Sandy

@Nigel - We have to agree to disagree.
Oh yes, but it's more fun this way.


You fail to see the obvious as your need for it to be your theory of BL is too strong & overrides your common sense.
No it's just what i think, part of the case for BL is that no other theory stacks up as well.


I agree that there isn't one injury, but in all NINE! Even ID that was about the only one to just expire from hypothermia had his hands/knuckles beat up from punching and defending punches.
Maybe there was a fight, maybe it was rodents, maybe it was digging the ravine 4 out of the snow. Doesn't really support a murder theory imo.


To me, it CLEARLY shows these 9 people were all beaten to sh!t but only some of them expired from hypothermia. How do you think BL made ALL their hands look like that? Tell me how it crushed 2 of their skulls & broke 2 sets of ribs? Crushed a chest cavity? Hit Zina with either a baton or rifle?? Only obvious she was attacked from behind.
The BL theory only explains how they left the tent and how the ravine 4 died from superhuman force. I don't accept that Zina was hit by a baton, they were dragging a sled for days over rough ground with a rope tied around their waist...


Again, your passion to be "right" is clearly clouding your judgment & you are only seeing what you want to see. BL killing these 9 people is like saying the sky is purple.
Don't think so again part of the case for the BL theory is that it's the only one to fit the facts. The BIG problem with the murder theory is the question "how could they have been so stupid to light a fire?". LC answers this by deciding it was internal violence.


Go read their autopsies again. Pay special attention to their hand abrasions/scratches/knuckles bruised and skinned........abrasions to their faces.....dried blood on almost all mouths....tongue cut at the root while she was still alive to have swallowed the blood......being knocked down by BL over & over til both sides of the skull is crushed.....the sheer terror on their faces isn't from BL but evil humans.

Believe me i've read the autopsies more than you. The is nothing there to suggest the tongue was cut or that she swallowed any blood, it's a myth.
Also i don't see terror in their faces, in fact they seem quite calm.
Sandy 08-09-2017 20:12 (GMT)
I can agree that they weren't "all" experiencing advanced stages of hypothermia when injured". I believe maybe 3 or 4 weren't at that late stage as the others less dressed were.

You didn't answer the questions I posted about BL sustaining the injuries in about 5 or 6 of them?
Jaime 08-09-2017 20:11 (GMT)
The stove theory is the only sensible one (if you don't believe in Yeti or aliens). Something occurring in the tent which also blocked the exit. Why cut holes to escape if there is a exit way? The stove blocked the exit.
Loose-Cannon 08-09-2017 20:08 (GMT)
@Sandy... Fascinating ideas. I thought Zina was playing Igor and used to date Yuri though... Dunno about RS.

Nigel. The point is... Your simply ignoring and attempting to write-off facts that do not support your BL theory. Its that simple. Several victims found on their backsides.... Why did they not bleed out of their ass or otherwise have a rat chew off a buttcheek!?!?. Your assertion is moot.

#1. Its common sense... Blood no longer flowing will settle with gravity BUT, that does not mean blood platelets stop containing blood where it belongs..... Not going to bleed out your ass anytime soon after you die. Dont worry about the new drawers getting blood soiled.

#2. Bodily fluids I'm sure can leak from a body cavity some time after death during a certain decomposition period BUT, unfortunately for you, their bodies were frozen solid as a rock with minutes of dying. Humans are mostly water, and said water is absorbed into every level of tissue. Ever seen water freezing right befor your eyes? Again... I don't think you grasp the severity of the temperatures.

Sandy 08-09-2017 20:07 (GMT)
How does BL snap a neck like that & deform it?

In "Death on the Trail" (D.O.T.T.), the Russian author believes Rustem Slobodin was the first to die. He believes he attempted to attack the "robbers" at the tent & he was beat in the head then by the attackers. He was still alive & didn't die right away from his head injuries. Where he was found was where he had finally dropped & expired from hypothermia, but due to his horrific blunt trauma head injuries, his hypothermia was brought on much faster. He even suggests that Igor was heading back towards the tent to find Rustem but he died from hypothermia along the way.

I believe Loose Cannon posted his theory very similar to this.

I don't know if I believe Rustem was the first to die or not. It makes good sense that the 2 Yuri's at the cedar tree were the first 2 to die.
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 20:03 (GMT)
@Sandy - "All of the victims were experiencing various stages of advancing hypothermia when they sustained injuries."
Very contentious statement. NTB was VERY well dressed for the cold (probably on watch) in particular he had two hats - by a tightly tied green woollen sports cap with three round holes sized 3 x 3 cm located in the front. A khaki canvas fur helmet with a zipper fastener [like a flying helmet]; the helmet is drawn by a cord.

Oss, Svetlana. Don't Go There: Post Mortem (p. 215). LiberWriter.com. Kindle Edition.

NTB gloves were in his pocket and AK was found with his jacket unzipped. Imo they were inside a shelter. Whatever NTB's head wouldn't have been cold.
Sandy 08-09-2017 19:57 (GMT)
@Nigel - We have to agree to disagree.

You stated "The main point here is that many of the smaller injuries you categorize as "combat" or "BEAT TO SHIT" are ambiguous and could have other causes.

In fact there is NOT ONE injury that is CLEARLY caused by human violence. Everyone of them has an alternative solution."

You fail to see the obvious as your need for it to be your theory of BL is too strong & overrides your common sense.

I agree that there isn't one injury, but in all NINE! Even ID that was about the only one to just expire from hypothermia had his hands/knuckles beat up from punching and defending punches.

@Anna: Good points. I agree with everything you just wrote. You were the first person when I found this site that I came across & stated they were murdered by humans. You're exactly right & I agree with you 100%.
Sandy 08-09-2017 19:42 (GMT)
Here is yet another theory that for the most part, could have happened as well. It is another theory that they were murdered.

CE399_ 19-10-2016 20:09 (GMT)
Comment to all previous posts:

1. Zina Kolmogorova's postion at death is not mysterious at all. Zina was romantically involved with both of the men whose bodies were closest to her body. The group had split up at some point with some of them forming an expedition to try to get back to the tent. The "tent" subgroup was Zina, Dyatlov and Slobodin. Zina was the best clothed, strong and athletic but had been struck in the side and back with something resembling a baton (or butt of a rifle). She made it the furthest of any in the "tent" expedition but of course, succumbed to hypothermia. The "tent" expedition was ill-fated because no one was properly clothed and all had sustained injuries and expended too much energy most likely fighting off their attacker(s).

2. The attacker(s) killed Thibeaux-Brignolles most likely because he tried to be heroic in trying to defend the girl in the group who was closest to him in age. His injuries are consistent with an impulsive young man who is killed by a much more experienced fighter wielding a long, hard object like a baton, rod or rifle. Zina's injuries are also consistent with such a weapon and more closely match what a male assailant who was an experienced fighter would do to woman who tried to attack him.

3. Regarding the so-called "lack of external injuries". The medical examiners were mediocre. All of the victims were experiencing various stages of advancing hypothermia when they sustained injuries. Bruising is not seen because blood flow is retracted from the skin of a hypothermic person. The body concentrates blood into the vital organs when it becomes hypothermic. I have personally experienced this happening very rapidly and very acutely. A cut on hypothermic skin that is shockingly deep may not bleed at all. In a particular episode of M*A*S*H a patient is said to have survived because he was "frozen" and would have bleed to death in warmer weather. The television series was known for its on-set medical advisors who took real accounts of combat from the Korean War and adapted them accurately for the show. The only thing that is not entirely accurate about the episode is that the soldier was not "frozen" because freezing kills tissue and bursts vessels. The soldier was hypothermic and his blood flow was restricted so much to the area of the wound that it did not bleed. The noticeable lack of "external injuries" is due to hypothermia. Remember, people are quite conscious and alive when their bodies begin to react to hypothermia.

4. I have lived a number of years above the Arctic Circle. Lights, fireballs, and other strange luminescent events are common. People in the lower latitudes only know about "the Northern Lights" but there is a whole range of strange and spectacular things that happen at the higher latitudes. And it's not all lights either. Sound events often occur too, with and without lights. I have heard and seen things that I would think were alien ships wizzing by or crashing if I wasn't an engineer with a physics education. The amount of energy deflected and channeled by the earth's magnetic field is enormous and causes all sorts of light and sound shows at the higher latitudes.

Everyone wants to treat the fireball events seen around the time of the Dyatlov tragedy as special. Sorry, that sort of thing is not special at all. Go spend a couple winters up there and you'll see. I have. And I am not impressed at all by the stories. They are as common as hurricanes in Florida. Sure, some are bigger than others and some seasons have few and others a lot. But what was seen was not unique.

If you take any story in isolation, it can be made out to be a spectacular or strange occurrence.

How many accounts of the Dyatlov incident mention that the lights in the sky seen at that time were also seen before and after that day for many days and from year-to-year? And none of the witness accounts of the "halos" are certain to have occurred exactly on the day when the group perished which is another issue.

Group infighting does not explain the hurried exit from the tent unless someone pulled a gun on the rest of the group. Or say, grabbed Lyuda and threatened to slit her throat if the rest of the group didn't do as he said.

His theory ends with it being Yuri Yudin, the 10th hiker, that comes back with a couple men and murders them. NO way that happened either. All his other statements until that point are certainly a possibility. Yuri Yudin loved them and vice versa.
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 19:10 (GMT)
Whether they were turned over is not the point. The point is that lividity is a fact, blood pools at the bottom of the corpse close to the skin. If a rodent then nips the skin there will be blood on the surface of the skin. That's how the some of the "combat" injuries can be explained. Ditto cut hands.
Granted skull fractures need another reason like falling.

The main point here is that many of the smaller injuries you categorize as "combat" or "BEAT TO SHIT" are ambiguous and could have other causes.

In fact there is NOT ONE injury that is CLEARLY caused by human violence. Everyone of them has an alternative solution.
That is a very strong fact for the murder theorists to answer.

note to Sandy -- there is a definite difference between BL and regular lightning -- they are related but not the same -- I do recognize that the two may sometimes have similar visual appearances and are thus confused in the reporting. (like the example I cited -- which I think is normal lightning -- and a very dangerous thing to do -- don't try this at home, as they say.)

So you don't even believe your own dribble, yet present it to be evidence of BL ???
Loose-Cannon 08-09-2017 18:35 (GMT)
Again... I personally do not believe they were turned over except with a slight possibility? of Igor. Your wild assertion is moot.

Anna Yordanova 08-09-2017 18:26 (GMT)
To Sandy. When I first saw the pics of the incident I only saw a storage house situated South from the tent. I don't have a detailed picture of premises and I didn't know how it looks like. But I will say again that in my opinion the killers have come from this direction and that's why the group has run towards the woods. I also have stated in one of my previous posts that I believe that no environmental factors could cause this tragedy and the hikers have been killed by humans(more like animals).
To Loose Cannon. Yes, it is true that the pictures do not look anything like the hikers, especially Doroshenko.
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 18:24 (GMT)
@Sandy / @LC - we know the bodies were turned over because of the lividity, because the blood pools via gravity so close to the surface of the skin that it is visible. Exactly my point. So if some of the bodies are face down and a rodent has a little nibble perhaps of the lips or the face then there will be blood yes?

@John: I believe there is ball lightening & it has struck people throughout the ages. Many people have died from lightening strikes.

While the experiment was under way, ball lightning appeared and travelled down the string, struck Richmann's forehead and killed him. The ball had left a red spot on Richmann's forehead, his shoes were blown open, and his clothing was singed. His engraver was knocked unconscious. The door frame of the room was split and the door was torn from its hinges.[12]

How does his injuries in ANY way, shape or form explain the 9 hikers' injuries?? His shoes were blown open?? I'm not surprised to read this. Lightening can be very lethal. This doesn't compare to what happened with the hikers.

NO WAY IS ANY FORM OF LIGHTENING, BALL OR OTHERWISE, GOING TO KILL NINE DIFFERENT PEOPLE AT DIFFERENT TIME FRAMES, IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS & IN MANY DIFFERENT INJURIES.

What part of this can't Nigel/John comprehend?? Even in lightening attacks, there are survivors and any form of lightening has never killed a large group of people with different attacks.

The horse is dead. D-e-a-d. I'm through as well with writing anymore absurdity about all those 9 people being killed by BL. Impossibly absurd. The.End.

you know -- I'm pretty much done trying to convince the fakes who pretend to read the stuff and the links we provide -- THEY DON'T EVEN READ THEIR OWN LINKS LET ALONE OURS ! Why waste our time ? Why don't you go off and do something constructive --- like the dishes ..... or take out the garbage ...... KMM asks for names and I provide names -- here's just one example -- a famous and historic ABD VERIFIABLE account :

Georg Richmann[edit]

A 1753 report depicts ball lightning as having been lethal when professor Georg Richmann of Saint Petersburg, Russia, created a kite-flying apparatus similar to Benjamin Franklin's proposal a year earlier. Richmann was attending a meeting of the Academy of Sciences when he heard thunder and ran home with his engraver to capture the event for posterity. While the experiment was under way, ball lightning appeared and travelled down the string, struck Richmann's forehead and killed him. The ball had left a red spot on Richmann's forehead, his shoes were blown open, and his clothing was singed. His engraver was knocked unconscious. The door frame of the room was split and the door was torn from its hinges.[12]

-- I posted a pile of these. Apparently KMM didn't see that one either (and don't bother answering this as I am not responding to your useless posts of phony analysis)

LC -- I thought you were some sleep-deprived and angry 12 year old (you have the mentality of one --- or maybe a 10 year old) --- but in one of your curse-word filled rants (against either me or the ball-lightning hypothesis) you said something that changed my mind --- what you said / called me, was a "pantywaist" ! A "PANTYWAIST" ! No has used that word in the last half century ! I had to look the word up to be sure of its meaning, and then research its use. (see: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/pantywaist --- which said its first use was in 1910 ! ) That word went out of use as a descriptive noun in the 1920's after which it was more used as an insult (implying: "sissy" ) however by the 1930's it had become a comic pejorative -- its last known use was in a B&W Bob Hope movie from the early 1950's ! ------ I now think we're dealing with an angry sleep-deprived 80 year old ! Dude! Is your hair white ? Do you have any hair left ? --- and most importantly ...... Do you take your teeth out when you go to bed ?

--- special note to Loose Shorts or whatever your name is: the BBC reports that your source of secret information, Alex Jones, of info wars, has declared hurricane Irma ...... a category 6 ! .... in spite of the fact that no such category exists ! (see: http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-41187164 )

--- as for Nigel, Anna, and a few others who are really interested in this sad accident -- and might even solve it -- I will be glad to comment / correspond on this site as my time allows -- I am fascinated by the enormous power that lightning and ball-lightning conveys and the possibility that we don't know what the heck it is, but that it is probably related to both plasma physics phenomena and radiant microwave energy in some highly unusual way. WHAT A FANTASTIC AND BEAUTIFUL WORLD WE LIVE IN ! I'm off to water the garden -- gd'day.
Sandy 08-09-2017 17:14 (GMT)
@ Nigel: NO, your rat articles doesn't explain ANYTHING at all that has to do with any of the 9 injuries. Brother. I can't believe how far you'll go to attempt to tie such stupid sh!t in with what happened to the 9. Give.it.a.rest.
Sandy 08-09-2017 17:07 (GMT)
@ Loose Cannon - I agree that almost all of the hikers DO NOT look like the pics we have seen so many of. I even thought they had Lyuda's autopsy pic instead of Zina's. I can't tell at all that was Zina. They all have looks of sheer terror on their faces.

I also would have thought the 4 bodies that had 12 ft. of snow piled on them from Feb - May when they were found, would have been much more preserved than they were.
Sandy 08-09-2017 17:03 (GMT)
@Nigel - Some of the bodies being turned over is a FACT. They could tell where the lividity had pooled after they were deceased.

Lividity can be a useful reaction in determining the position of a body at the time of death and even whether a body was moved within the first few hours after death. When the blood cells begin to decompose, the release of the blood forms a bluish-purple bruise.

Lividity can also result when blood flow ceases after death. The blood that was formerly flowing through the body can be drawn to the lowest point in the body by the influence of gravity. For example, if a victim was lying on her right side at the time of death, lividity would be evident on the right side of the face, hip, and on the areas of the right arm and leg that were closest to the ground.

It is known for a FACT that some of the bodies had indeed been turned over.
Loose-Cannon 08-09-2017 16:49 (GMT)
This is interesting to say the least. Not sure how viable it is, but I have wondered myself why in so many of the pictures the subjects do not seem to look like the 9 individuals we have come to know. :/

Maybe Sandy, KMM, and Anna will find this interesting? I dunno

Sandy 08-09-2017 16:47 (GMT)
Nigel - This was already addressed about the fire being built & SZ was never a part of it. SZ grasped the seriousness right away & advised the Yuri's NOT to build the fire. It's hard to listen to someone saying that when you almost naked & are freezing to death. Yes, it was stupid but most of them didn't realize it. They thought as soon as the "robbers" left, they'd all return to the tent.

Nigel - if that's all the ques. you need answering then it's pretty obvious just how all the injuries are indeed covered and administered by humans, probably soldiers, agents, some type of experts in hand to hand combat.

I find it almost laughable how you hang onto that ridiculous BL theory & that you think balls of anything could have sustained ALL nine people's injuries!! You're like a junk yard dog when you get ahold of something - you just can't let go.

Nigel/John: You are beating a dead horse. Stop it.

And to Anna: There was never a "storage house" for the robbers to "hide in".

@ Loose Cannon - it wasn't even a piece of soldier legging, more like a small patch torn off from a uniform or coat. Also, your 1st paragraph about Igor/Zina possibly heading back to help is very plausible & that is even mentioned in Death on the Trail.

@Loose Cannon - In D.O.T.T. (Nigel, see above), it was said that there were plenty of dry branches much lower down on the cedar tree that could have been retrieved to use for fire. That it didn't make much sense to go for the way higher up branches, unless someone was either trying to ascertain what was going on at the tent & the robbers or else after Yuri 2 had witnessed Yuri 1 being murdered by sitting on his chest & crushing it, thence the gray liquid found on his cheek. This comes from having your chest cavity crushed. Yuri 2 stayed in the tree as long as he could as he knew he would be murdered next. When Yuri 2's frozen hands couldn't hold on any longer & he fell hard, injuring himself & already almost dead from hypothermia. The "robbers" saw this & left him to die. Nothing further needed to be done, he would be dead soon.

ALL their injuries prove that almost ALL of them had been beaten to death like Loose Cannon posted. They were no match against soldiers.

The reason I believe Lyuda was alive when her tongue was severed L.C. is due to the fact that she had blood in her stomach and had swallowed the blood to get it there. She had to still be alive for this to happen.

I don't know how anyone could possibly believe that balls of ANYTHING personally stalked & killed NINE people and have SO MANY DIFFERENT injuries & most stemming from being beat to death & fighting back themselves. They weren't fighting fireballs, ball lightening or orange orbs.......Had this been the case, the injuries would have been different & I don't believe all 9 would have died. There would have been some survivors.

Nothing like this has EVER happened where a large group of people all die together with like injuries & no survivors.

I think the Yeti theory works better than BL folks.
Loose-Cannon 08-09-2017 16:08 (GMT)
We don't, but Igor is thought to possibly have been. I don't personally put much significance in it. The positioning of the arms etc are very strange though.
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 15:51 (GMT)

Loose-Cannon 08-09-2017 15:48 (GMT)
Additionally, if your were to block an incoming blow to the face with your hand up and palm out.... Don't be surprised to find the back of your hand striking your teeth. Sound familiar? Or did the ship rats remove the skin and wedge it between his teeth to save it for later?
Loose-Cannon 08-09-2017 15:03 (GMT)
There wouldn't be a flow into the nose and mouth unless there was a rupture to begin with. Besides, frozen liquids do not flow.... Did you forget the temps?

Yeah... Really looks to be a varmint infested environment to me. NOT!

"Oh, the bloody noses and mouths.... Kinda need a heart beat for that. "
Not if they're face down, gravity doing what it does, kinda shot yourself in the foot there.Laughing
Agreed crows will be detered by the snow, but rodents wont be that's where they live in the winter, under the snow.
Loose-Cannon 08-09-2017 14:07 (GMT)
Accept for the fact some were literally face down in the snow, covered rapidly by blowing snow on the side of a mountain named specifically for its lack of game. Of course then you have the injuries having been documented causing damage to the underlying tissue with swelling etc. Not to mention the fresh bright red baton strike across the mid section. Oh, the bloody noses and mouths.... Kinda need a heart beat for that. Since when do scavengers prefer frozen hands? Everyone knows they go for the eyeballs first.

Nice try. Yuris nose missing sure, but once again, common sense should prevail.
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 13:48 (GMT)
@LC - Larf, it's very reasonable to point out that YK's nose tip was from scavengers. If the case is proven for one injury then it will apply to others especially on the hands and faces.
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 13:44 (GMT)
@AllNonBLievers - So YK and YD falling out of the tree solves a problem for the BL theory, it doesn't have to be involved in their deaths. Just scares them all out of the tent and then later moves to the ravine and explodes in the snow bank. Rodents and birds (e.g. Siberian crow) create ambiguous facial and hand injuries consistent with fighting.
Loose-Cannon 08-09-2017 13:37 (GMT)

Loose-Cannon 08-09-2017 13:22 (GMT)
For anyone interested. An overlapping group of three known photos showing the orientation of the rev4 as found. https://ibb.co/iosq1v and another https://ibb.co/nJof1v
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 12:45 (GMT)
So YK's big burn seems to be from externally applied heat that charred the ankle with the rest of the leg being protected somewhat from the heat. So the fire is the best candidate, electrocution or microwave heating would behave differently.

Could be an innocent explanation of course, falling out of the tree, concussed and unattended, ditto YD.

I find the way that YK's long johns were cut up to be strange. Why would you want to cut them halfway down and leave one lower half on? Quite weird. Surely the "tubes" would make the best improvised socks...
Loose-Cannon 08-09-2017 12:08 (GMT)
And a burnt sock even closer to the fire which was 1m from the bodies. That's roughly 3 feet.... So the sock was what 6" to maybe 2' away from the fire.

I have also seen pics of this nature but could never find them again recently for the vid.... Like the one on the left here... It was shown partially in your link but the feet were cropped of. https://ibb.co/fUuaJa
Nigel Evans 08-09-2017 11:46 (GMT)

Hi Anna, re: your comment about: "But If this has been a planned murder from the beginning" but why do it that way -- if someone was going to do in the entire bunch (for singing? ) they would have been killed right out at the beginning of their hike - not after skiing for a week or more.

also, from the group diary (they were not singing subversive songs -- just singing -- which would annoy any sleeping travelers at the station)

January 24
7.00 (am) We arrived in Serov (town). We traveled with a Blinov's group. They have... things for hunting and other accessories. At the station we were met with hell of a hospitality. They didn't allow us into the building. The policeman stares at us suspiciously. There is no crime or vandalism in the city, as it suppose to be in times of communism. And then Yuri Krivo started a song, the cops grabbed him and took him away.
At the attention of citizen Krivonischenko, sergeant explained that the rules of §3 prohibited all activity that would disturb the peace of passengers. It is perhaps the only train station where the songs are forbidden, so we stayed without singing.
Finally everything is settled by end fo the day. We are leaving Serov to Ivdel at 6:30 pm. We were welcomed warmly in the school near the railway station. The steward (she is also a janitor) bolied some water, and helped us with everything we needed for the preparation for the trek.
John Wolfe 08-09-2017 07:18 (GMT)
Hi Nigel --- re: your post: Nigel Evans 09-07-2017 09:56 (GMT)
@John - "--- any water in / on the tent would flash off at its boiling point (or thereabouts) and so would not heat the molecules (of the other stuff) up enough to cause a change; but a microwave would. "

There was a flask of alcohol in the tent which is unlikely to have survived the heating you're suggesting. I think it was more modest.

first of all -- the alcohol / flask was inside the tent and (most likely) stowed away (not touched - see reports) so there would be layers upon layers of shielding;

second -- the term "flask" leads me to think of a metal one -- brought for the same reason hikers would bring food either preserved (and maybe canned) but never in GLASS -- which would be a problem that would have to be dealt with asap if it broke and would take a lot of time to clean up the glass mess. I've done a lot of back-packing (including months long) and would never take anything in glass -- nor have I seen anyone else do so. The metal flask could heat up but if sealed would not likely be blowup the liquid inside; and it was not reported leaking.

lastly --- the tent would have been covered with snow -- from the continuous snow-fall and blowing -- this would tend to stick if it made the tent wet (from melting) thus forming a shielding layer of sorts (it was absorbing the microwaves)

it would be nice to find out more about that "flask" -- one account called it "medicinal alcohol" -- but another said the searchers drank it in (false hopes) of soon toasting the hikers alive -- the Mansi started quite a row when they suggested that they toast the dead ! (see references to the Mansi having seen/visited the tent and etc. BEFORE the hikers were found by the searchers - taking nothing) --- one site suggested it was "vodka" but none other did.

also: I should add that it is one thing to "boil-off" water, one molecule at a time --- and quite a different thing to continuously irradiate a flask to the point of exploding the flask -- remember that a metal flask would shield the contents from any microwave energy and, in a very cold environment would loose much of its acquired heat (see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_shielding

--- or google Faraday cage.

KMM... Could be. Unless she fell against a rock pretty hard, or its somehow attributed to decomposition?

anything is possible, but idt a bone will decompose in 3 months.

"Hyoid bone fracture is usually the result of direct trauma to the neck because of manual strangulation, hanging, blunt trauma or projectiles. However, hyoid bone fracture caused by a fall has seldom been reported. We report the case of a young man who fell from 1.5 m while painting, which resulted as an isolated hyoid bone fracture. Hyoid bone fracture secondary to trauma may occur when a victim falls with a direct contusion of the neck"

setting the flashlight on the tent, and throwing his coat down, near the spot where he had exited (It’s difficult to conceive of another logical scenario that would explain these objects being found where they were).

--- Please note: there are several mentions, on several web-pages of evidence that the Mansi probably came across the hikers and their tent before the search party -- by putting the flashlight and jacket where they were found they were indicating respect for the dead, and an unwillingness to take any of the possessions. (least any Soviet interrogator think 'they did the killing)

I'm going to repost this:

from the official autopsy reports

"When palpation is felt, the unusual mobility of the ribs is determined"

"When probing the neck, the unusual mobility of the horns of the hyoid bone and thyroid cartilage is determined"

We know the ribs were broken and the heart punctured, so they had their cause of death. but if the hyoid bone was also broken this is pretty clear evidence of strangulation at, before, or around the time of death.

something about the two "labaz" photos bothers me:

in the hiker's photo there are some pretty large tree trunks around the labaz ( see: http://dyatlov-pass.com/resources/340/gallery/Krivonischenko-camera-film1-15.jpg )

but in the rescuer's photo there are only much smaller trees and they are digging something out of the snow (see: http://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/6446/14124454.33f/0_be80f_eecbc44b_orig.jpg )

I think the rescuer's photo is of some other site. Unless the labaz fell over -- how did the snow appear so deep? --- and where did the large trunk trees go ?

There is like zero signs of footprints around it etc... Even it it had been constructed the day before, you would think signs of them working on it ground level would be obvious.

This is the picture from what I understand when the cache was found. Is this after pulling it down? I dunno... http://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/6446/14124454.33f/0_be80f_eecbc44b_orig.jpg

This above ground structure sure has alot of snow on it for just being constructed. Are you positive this is their cache and not a local indian object? Looks like something native American indians used to 'bury' their dead.... Above ground like this.

Loose-Cannon 08-09-2017 00:02 (GMT)
Woah woah there cowboy. Lets be fair.

"Well it wasn't much of a hand to hand fight, no broken noses, no torn ears, no black eyes, no gouged eyes, just abrasions and a few bruises. Maybe the soldiers wore boxing gloves? "

Must I post the list of injuries again? Multiple swollen heads, bloody mouths, bloody noses, skin ripped off knuckles down to the bone... Should I post the Zina hand again? Abrasions.... Lets see, you dont get them by putting your shirt on. You get them from contact with another object with enough force to leave a mark! Sounds like fighting to me. Not to mention 90% of them are to the head, face, and hands. So I guess BL REALLY likes themselves some face and hands, or you think they received all this in their simple hiking days prior? Of course we do happen to have THEIR VERY OWN pictures taken the day before and the morning of their last hike..... They sure look fine in the face to me! They received all these injuries THAT NIGHT. FACT.


"and crushed TBS’s skull, neutralizing them without leaving any obvious weapon mark.
Must have bee the boxing gloves again. Some punch, cracking the base of the skull as well as the rest of it."

I will repeat myself AGAIN.... Thanks for making me remember something I would rather forget. I have personally witnessed on TWO separate occasions a person punched so hard their skull eye socket was completely crushed inward, the second the temple are much like in this case... I took the person to the damn hospital. Guess what!.. not a single exterior cut or wound of the skin. Now you tell me.... What happens when you add a big freaking stick into the equation?... How about a rock? Now, these folks just happen to be wearing their HATS for the most part. Do you not think a winter beenie can/will help prevent exterior marks upon the affected area? Don't make me pull a John and start copy/pasting autopsy reports.

You are correct on the storage site... It was basically a hole cache with logs over the top from what I can tell.

Nigel Evans 07-09-2017 23:07 (GMT)
@Sandy - a few points

The multiple cuts in the tent were created in the panic and confusion of exiting a wriggling collapsed tent cover in the dark.
Yeah right, a number of slits were cut along the top of the tent "in confusion". Funny how they are all along one side at the right height for viewing something. No mention of why a camera was found on a tripod when they were just settling in for the night. Don't tripods take up room?

setting the flashlight on the tent, and throwing his coat down, near the spot where he had exited (It’s difficult to conceive of another logical scenario that would explain these objects being found where they were).
As suggested before the flashlight would have been useful for "toilet trips". You wouldn't want to wake people up in the night so the flashlight was left outside in a known place perhaps the jacket to.

The Dyaltov party was followed, but not very far. (Their being followed some distance would explain the heeled boot track found among their own tracks as they headed down slope - No one in the group was wearing such boots at this time).
This is just not true, NTB was wearing his valenki (felt boots) he was well dressed probably because he was on watch.

They set up a small base camp under a pine tree,
Cedar tree actually.

just out of site of the tent, and together built an emergency fire
An act of incredible stupidity if they believed there were men out to kill them. Unbelievable that SZ a WW2 veteran could be involved in this.
As said before the existence of the fire rules out a sentient threat.

Shortly before dawn, the soldiers returned to make sure no one was left to tell the tale. They discovered the shelter, and a hand-to-hand fight ensued.
Well it wasn't much of a hand to hand fight, no broken noses, no torn ears, no black eyes, no gouged eyes, just abrasions and a few bruises. Maybe the soldiers wore boxing gloves?

(This would explain many’s of the group’s injuries, including the bruised metacarples on ID and RS, RS’s concussion, and the baton bruise on ZK.)
Maybe there was a scrap between the group but it's not relevant to the deaths imo. I don't see a baton bruise on ZK, this Ian guy would do better to mention her cut hand.

ID, RS, and ZK managed to break free into the darkness. They made a run for the tent, desperate for the axes or anything to help their friends. (Such a level of desperation would explain why they left the group, the shelter, and the fire, when they were so close to freezing that they could only go a few hundred more yards). ZK, a strong and brave young woman came the closest to making it.
They were climbing into the wind but all giving up in 330 metres is saying something else imo.

As for the group that was left, the soldiers pressed LD and SZ to death,
So how did they "press them to death"? This isn't what the pathologist said.

broke YK’s neck,
Assuming he means AK, the pathologist never said the neck was broken. He said it was deformed. It's a curious fact that he didn't investigate this further.

and crushed TBS’s skull, neutralizing them without leaving any obvious weapon mark.
Must have bee the boxing gloves again. Some punch, cracking the base of the skull as well as the rest of it.

I don't think the soldier legging is a big issue, there is speculation that the den was a mansi hunter shelter, if so then they could have left it behind. Could have been there for a long time.
KMM 07-09-2017 21:05 (GMT)
I have read where old (pertaining to 1920 military attire) military legging was found in the tent, and also a report saying another was found at the ravine. I believe would of seen it DOT.

IF TRUE, could of belonged to one of the campers also.

Anna Yordanova 07-09-2017 20:56 (GMT)
I am gonna repeat again my opinion that the killers have been hidden in the storage house.But If this has been a planned murder from the beginning.They have been refused to enter the railway station(just for singing songs).Isn`t it a bit harsh?Then on the train they got accused of stealing by a drunk man.What if all of this scenarios have been planned in advanced and the group has been watched?Why the chancellor of the University has lied Dubinina`s parents about a telegraph received from Igor Dyatlov.The rescue groups have been sent a week after Dyatlov and group failed to report their arrival.A week!For this time the killers had have plenty of time to cover any prints,to swap clothes between the victims and mess around with evidence in order to puzzle the investigation.What if the killers slit the tent from inside in order to mislead the investigation?I might be wrong,but this ideas came up in my mind all of a sudden and I just decided to share them with you.
Loose-Cannon 07-09-2017 20:32 (GMT)
@Sandy

I dunno about this 'soldiers clothing'. Where did this come from? Its an ok theory I guess. I just hate going down the rabbit hole of explaining every little detail with unknowns. Example, the whole group minus the 2yuris could have been present at the shelter caring for the injured and Igor attempted to reach the tent first. After Igor failing to return, the other two could have made the attempt and found Igor dead along the way.... Could explain reports of him being turned over.

Another example is... The case files describe fairly hefty branches being half burned in the fire pit. Looking at the tree, the branches missing fit the bill. Im not convinced anyone was climbing the tree for any other reason other then to retrieve firewood from dead branches. Its even harder to keep a fire going under those conditions with green wet wood, if not impossible. Remember, all the suitable fallen dead wood was likely covered by the snow and also soaked to the core.

There is plenty of evidence suggesting they were murdered, but similar to any other theory, I think its a loosing battle attempting to rationalize and explain every tiny detail. Thats kinda why the BL theory IMHO is stuck in the mud.
KMM 07-09-2017 20:05 (GMT)
Very plausible theory Sandy,

I don't claim to have all the answers
Loose-Cannon 07-09-2017 19:54 (GMT)
Sick-Em Sandy!

Gotta admit she has some really good points. I don't know if it was murder from within or by outsiders, or if it was BL. I just have a very low tolerance for BS and bullies.

I do however believe the eyes and tongue were missing from natural causes... She was rotted and thawed out face down in a creek.

As far as it goes with Yuri Yudin not recognizing an article of clothing.... I found this. Its from his 'interrogation?'... Yup, even he was questioned.

"The collected money was bought: food and various things and equipment needed in the campaign, as a first-aid kit, notebooks, pencils, materials for warming tents, etc., I do not remember everything. Backpacks, skis, boots, tent, ice ax and other equipment were received at the Institute."

There you have it.... "I do not remember everything" when talking about their gear, supplies etc.
Sandy 07-09-2017 19:45 (GMT)
Hi all, I have reposted a theory by Ian on 8/13/16. He basically believes that soldiers murdered them & the military covered it up.

Nigel - See the part about the piece of "soldier garb" that had been taken out of evidence. And it was the military that closed that particular site for 3 years.

This is an EXCELLENT write and theory & I believe every single word of it.



Ian 13-08-2016 14:11 (GMT)

These were young people full of life and ability, who would have brought a lot of good into the world if they had been able to live out their natural lifetimes. The sheer tragedy of this story hasn’t allowed it to leave my mind for days. At least for me, trying to put together a rational explanation of the events brings a little bit of closure. I’m not saying that the hypothetical scenario that follows is what happened, but I do think it fits all of the available evidence. What do you think?

Sometime during the day or evening of Feb 1st, the Dyatlov group encountered a clandestine testing or training operation perhaps involving jets or rockets (This would explain the reports of glowing orange lights and the military debris in the area later noted by YY). It wasn’t the type of situation where there was a fear of the tourists leaking photographs of a secrete weapon (their cameras would have simply been confiscated). For some reason, the group itself came to be perceived as the threat.

The group’s journal records that as they were traveling towards the beginning point of their hike, they sometimes sung anti-revolution songs that could have landed them in jail. They twice had scrapes with authorities on their trip (once for singing). Also from the journal, it appears that they enjoyed free and open debates about a variety of topics. Later, out in the woods hundreds of km from the nearest settlement (journal entry), they probably would have felt even greater freedom in such expressions. Entering into the area of an ongoing operation may have brought them under surveylence, perhaps without their knowledge. An overheard song or a frank debate about politics, combined with their chance-but-perceived-as-“suspicious” presence in a sensitive area, caused them to be viewed as subversive.

They camped that night on open high ground. When one of the members, perhaps SZ or NYB, stepped outside to relieve himself, if it was clear, his flashlight would have been visible for a long distance, alerting anyone in the area who might not have already been aware of their tent’s precise location. Minutes later, as the group was finishing dinner and drying out their clothes, a small armed detachment arrived at the tent. Whoever it was (I’ll call them “soldiers”) knocked the tent down, fired a few rounds into the air, and ordered the tourists outside or they would be shot. (Supposedly, there were no footprints other than the Dyaltov party’s at the tent, but how could one tell? Surely the Dyaltov group made many boot prints when they set up camp, obviously the rescuers were wearing boots days later when they got to the tent. At first no one suspected it could be a crime scene. It is not just possible but probable that a couple extra pairs of footprints at the tent would have gone unnoticed).

Unexpected gunfire and barking orders would have sent a momentary jolt of fear into even these level-headed travelers. Members of the group who had pocket knives at hand quickly cut through the tent to get everyone outside before the threat was carried out. The multiple cuts in the tent were created in the panic and confusion of exiting a wriggling collapsed tent cover in the dark.

The soldiers wanted to neutralize the tourists, but to leave bullet holes or other obvious wounds would have eventually led to strong demands for an explanation from the community. The soldiers chose to expose them to the cold. Under some guise, the soldiers told the Dyatlov group that they had to leave the area immediately. With great presence of mind, the group leader, ID grabbed a flashlight and his heavy coat as he was leaving the tent. He was immediately ordered to leave them behind, setting the flashlight on the tent, and throwing his coat down, near the spot where he had exited (It’s difficult to conceive of another logical scenario that would explain these objects being found where they were).

The Dyaltov party was followed, but not very far. (Their being followed some distance would explain the heeled boot track found among their own tracks as they headed down slope - No one in the group was wearing such boots at this time). They dropped a lit flashlight on the way, either because they were ordered to do so, or in hopes of using it as a beacon to direct them back to the tent if the soldiers left.

Poorly clothed, in extreme cold, and possibly in the dark, these resilient people covered half the distance that they traveled in their entire day’s hike, to arrive at the nearest tree line. This probably took quite a bit of time, and they knew that with their level of exposure the clock was against them. They set up a small base camp under a pine tree, just out of site of the tent, and together built an emergency fire (an impressive feat with frozen wood, in the cold, with no gloves, and possibly in the dark). Afraid that the soldiers were still at the tent, and unsure if they would pursue, YD and YK were posted near the fire to keep a lookout for the soldiers’ approach. (This would explain why branches were broken off so high up in the tree on the side of the tent, when other branches would have been easier to obtain.) Perhaps they kept a lookout from up in the tree as long as they could. Many or all of the injuries on these two individuals were from exposed hands getting frost bite in the tree, eventually leading to them falling out.

The rest of the group proceeded to build a shelter in a protected area, near, but out of site of the lookout tree. The small fire of frozen wood was not enough to keep the injured YD, and YK warm. Even though they burned parts of their numb extremities, they fell asleep. Either someone in the group was with them, or came back to them, showing care and respect by placing the bodies next to each other. The outer clothes, no longer of any use to the deceased, were removed. At this point, the shelter was not yet finished, because some of their clothing was incorporated into it. The survivors did their best to stay warm in the shelter, but were dangerously cold and heartbroken over the deaths.

Shortly before dawn, the soldiers returned to make sure no one was left to tell the tale. They discovered the shelter, and a hand-to-hand fight ensued. (This would explain many’s of the group’s injuries, including the bruised metacarples on ID and RS, RS’s concussion, and the baton bruise on ZK.) Exhausted and freezing, the group was now no match for their assailants even without the use of their guns).

ID, RS, and ZK managed to break free into the darkness. They made a run for the tent, desperate for the axes or anything to help their friends. (Such a level of desperation would explain why they left the group, the shelter, and the fire, when they were so close to freezing that they could only go a few hundred more yards). ZK, a strong and brave young woman came the closest to making it.

As for the group that was left, the soldiers pressed LD and SZ to death, broke YK’s neck, and crushed TBS’s skull, neutralizing them without leaving any obvious weapon mark. (Such a grim scenario would explain the types of injuries sustained by the party members found in the ravine - crushed chests with none of the external cuts or arm injuries that would have certainly happened in a fall, explain why they were all found outside of their nearby shelter, explain the fragment of soldier’s garb found in the ravine, and explain why it was subsequently taken out of evidence). The autopsies of these group members were the most vague, because the coroners had no choice. More detail would have raised still more questions from the community and gotten them in official hot water.

It is significant that YY, who was a part of the group, knew the Dyatlov party’s circumstances better than any living person, and saw all or most of the original evidence, thought that the military had something to do with his friend’s deaths. In 2008, 6 of the original rescuers and a team of 31 experts came to the similar conclusion that military testing was involved. The official report was that the Dyatlov group died at the hands of an “unknown compelling force”. How could words come closer to summarizing the above, without implicating the party responsible? This may also explain why the military closed the area for the following three years.

Any thoughts?

This guy should write a book. His theory is the best thus far. Great job Ian!!

Sandy 07-09-2017 19:07 (GMT)
You're not quite seeing the "whole" pic. Kind of like you do with your BL passion. I don't see how you can argue a "cover up" when, let's see:

That particular site in the Ural Mountains was CLOSED to, supposedly, everyone for 3 years.

They sealed the files and all the information & kept it all a secret for THIRTY YEARS. That's 3 decades = long time.

They did not investigate this for long. They were told to CLOSE it & they soon did.

It's only been since what? the 90's that it all FINALLY came to light & for people in the U.S. of A. to become aware of it also.

I don't see how you can argue a "cover up" with those 3 facts stated above. Far less things have been done in cover ups. I have no problem believing cops can be "dirty" & will do whatever told if the money's good.

When something is covered up, hushed up, file sealed and closed, for THIRTY years, you might guess some kind of "cover up" is going on.

Right now I"m reading in the 2016 & have found quite an interesting post by Ian, who believes they were also murdered by "soldiers".
I'm still in the middle of it.

I think you are blind to the obvious.
Nigel Evans 07-09-2017 18:33 (GMT)
@Sandy - "it was a coverup".

So lets just walk through this, this is Soviet Russia a country famous for putting millions of people in the gulags just for criticising the state, a false word could get you 20 years. But here we have a large investigative effort, a police team and a kgb team being supplied for months by helicopters.
All of that to pretend that it wasn't a state coverup? To maintain a deception? I don't think so, the coverup theory just doesn't fit this.
Sandy 07-09-2017 18:10 (GMT)
In 1959 there was a COVER UP. Those 2 questions are the only reasons you can't accept they were murdered by humans? If forensics took a look at the file today, I would imagine they'd agree that most of these hikers were beat to death.

We know there was a cover up since they closed the cases right away, wouldn't let anyone go there for 3 yrs. & kept the files hidden for 30 yrs.?? Perhaps the detective & the pathologist were told what to write & say. Maybe they were offered a great deal of money to write & say what they did. I don't think your 2 questions are important & have nothing to do with nine people's injuries looking as if most of them were beaten & the defensive wounds almost from all show they TRIED to fight back but none of them stood a chance against "the criminals/murderers".

Nigel Evans 07-09-2017 18:01 (GMT)
@Sandy - i'll try just once more with you (given up on the others).
Why do you think an experienced police detective who saw everything first hand wrt the DPI doesn't agree with you? Surely it would be in his regular experience to deal with violence, murder etc?
Why doesn't an experienced pathologist agree with you?
Sandy 07-09-2017 17:40 (GMT)
I thought posters kept an "open mind" here. All I see for pages and pages is the redundant, STUPID, senseless, impossibility, NO WAY FEASIBLE all nine people DIED from your asinine obsession with BL which I'm assuming I Ball Lightening. I know you've read each of their autopsies & should be intelligent enuf to COMPREHEND what each one states. Almost ALL the hikers were engaged in a hand to hand COMBAT, FIGHTING, BEING ATTACKED, staying in a tree as long as one could b/4 toppling down to avoid someONE, not a BL. They almost all have dried blood on their mouths, abrasions on their faces & it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see they've been in some kind of FIGHT/COMBAT.

Your BL can remove a tongue, take out 2 sets of eyeballs, snap a neck making it deformed, crush chests, crush 3 skulls, one on both sides over & over, break ribs (in Luda's case, almost ALL her ribs on BOTH sides), whack the back of one hiker like a baton, causing her to have a big bruise across her backside & due to the injury, hypothermia set in more quickly.

They just about ALL had skinned knuckles, abrasions to both hands, as if they'd been in a FIGHT. None of them have any signs of being hit by a ball of lightening, fireballs or whatever else is involved in your non-sensical BL theory.

Your BL made them WALK single file down a snowy slope without winter attire to freeze to death? If I was completely terrorized that I would leave a tent in -'20 degree weather without any coat/boots/gloves, I wouldn't be WALKING away from the tent.

It seems as if you entertain no other theories except trying to ram this ridiculous BL theory down our throats here. I honestly can't get this BL of any SORT killing all 9 of these hikers.

I'm not saying this BL doesn't exist, I believe it does and you've certainly proven that by all your links & obsession on your lightening balls/fire balls. It's.absurd.

Here's the problem: There.were.NINE.of.them.

NO WAY NOW or any time, will any kind of fireballs, lightening balls, balls of light, ever KILL
a bunch of people. There is nothing in history of this killing off a big GROUP of people with injuries such as the 9. It's not feasible.

You should at least read D.O.T.T. At least it can match all the injuries & offer a great solution as to why they left in taking their time & in like a single file.

Ball lightning, also called globe lightning, a rare aerial phenomenon in the form of a luminous sphere that is generally several centimetres in diameter. It usually occurs near the ground during thunderstorms, in close association with cloud-to-ground lightning. It may be red, orange, yellow, white, or blue in colour and is often accompanied by a hissing sound and distinct odour. It normally lasts only a few seconds

I never said it didn't exist, It just does not have the magical properties SOME attribute to it unless they are playing a VIDEO GAME (where it is quite common). Nothing that would cause a group of 8 seasoned hikers to destroy their tent while leaving the other contents inside in reasonable order,
all the while forgetting their shoes and warm clothing in -20f weather to WALK a mile, only to be followed by the ball lightning to the cedar tree where it reins death and destruction, then on to the ravine for more death and destruction!

Oh look, a 4mile long post proving BL exist therefore we must 'weep'. Gimme a freakin break.

Dead birds in photo.... You didn't expect the rescue team to not eat dinner did you? Wow, and this turns inyo 'dead birds everywhere'.

The green cap... Yeah, if you cannot see the FACT its describing the KNOWN HAT found with the sock at the cedar, you need a lesson in common sense. We know these two items existed. You just don't want real evidence and facts to show BL did NOT cause those burns.

Read the damn case files... All else is pure speculation with a side order of made up wonderland crap.

@John - "--- any water in / on the tent would flash off at its boiling point (or thereabouts) and so would not heat the molecules (of the other stuff) up enough to cause a change; but a microwave would. "

There was a flask of alcohol in the tent which is unlikely to have survived the heating you're suggesting. I think it was more modest.

"dead birds"

Listed under the same section as burnt treetops, warm spot, "rays of warmth" etc.... Right there in the Fireball category without melting anything because it NOW selectively targets objects above a certain height from the ground to be burned etc.

Show me the investigation photographs of these things, or they simply do not exist!

I too would like to see any photos of "burnt tree tops" could never find any mention of photos / but --- dead birds --- from : http://www.viafanzine.jor.br/site_vf/pag/5/dyatlov_part04.htm


"3) Dead birds."



"First responders noticed a large number of dead birds, mainly white ptarmigans, in the forest area where tourists were hiding: in the vicinity of the cedar and the ravine. Consequently, the impact of a deadly force on living organisms would have occurred."

--- this quote is followed by a PHOTO of a rescuer holding two dead birds -- doesn't say much else. To see it go about 1/2 way down the page.

Nigel : Nearly all BL accounts have witnesses else you wouldn't have a report?

I must of missed them. Name me some and the names of the dead. (verifiable)

OK - here's a few -- not that you'd even know how to "verify" them .......

Historical accounts[edit]

It has been suggested that ball lightning could be the source of the legends that describe luminous balls, such as the mythological Anchimayen from Argentinean and Chilean Mapuche culture.

In a 1960 study, 5% of the population of the Earth reported having witnessed ball lightning.[7][8] Another study analyzed reports of 10,000 cases.[7][9]

M. l'abbe de Tressan, in Mythology compared with history: or, the fables of the ancients elucidated from historical records:


… during a storm which endangered the ship Argo, fires were seen to play round the heads of the Tyndarides, and the instant after the storm ceased. From that time, those fires which frequently appear on the surface of the ocean were called the fire of Castor and Pollux. When two were seen at the same time, it announced the return of calm; when only one, it was the presage of a dreadful storm. This species of fire is frequently seen by sailors, and is a species of ignis fatuus. (page 417)

This account, however, shares more commonalities with the St. Elmo's fire phenomenon.[original research?]

Great Thunderstorm of Widecombe-in-the-Moor[edit]

Another early description was reported during the Great Thunderstorm at a church in Widecombe-in-the-Moor, Devon, in England, on 21 October 1638. Four people died and approximately 60 were injured when, during a severe storm, an 8-foot (2.4 m) ball of fire was described as striking and entering the church, having nearly destroyed it. Large stones from the church walls were hurled into the ground and through large wooden beams. The ball of fire allegedly smashed the pews and many windows, and filled the church with a foul sulfurous odour and dark, thick smoke.

The ball of fire reportedly divided into two segments, one exiting through a window by smashing it open, the other disappearing somewhere inside the church. The explanation at the time, because of the fire and sulfur smell, was that the ball of fire was "the devil" or the "flames of hell". Later, some blamed the entire incident on two people who had been playing cards in the pew during the sermon, thereby incurring God's wrath.[1]

The Catherine and Mary[edit]

In December 1726 a number of British newspapers printed an extract of a letter from John Howell of the sloop Catherine and Mary:

As we were coming thro’ the Gulf of Florida on 29th of August, a large ball of fire fell from the Element and split our mast in Ten Thousand Pieces, if it were possible; split our Main Beam, also Three Planks of the Side, Under Water, and Three of the Deck; killed one man, another had his Hand carried of [sic], and had it not been for the violent rains, our Sails would have been of a Blast of Fire.[10][11]

The Montague[edit]

One particularly large example was reported "on the authority of Dr. Gregory" in 1749:

Admiral Chambers on board the Montague, 4 November 1749, was taking an observation just before noon...he observed a large ball of blue fire about three miles distant from them. They immediately lowered their topsails, but it came up so fast upon them, that, before they could raise the main tack, they observed the ball rise almost perpendicularly, and not above forty or fifty yards from the main chains when it went off with an explosion, as great as if a hundred cannons had been discharged at the same time, leaving behind it a strong sulphurous smell. By this explosion the main top-mast was shattered into pieces and the main mast went down to the keel.

Five men were knocked down and one of them very bruised. Just before the explosion, the ball seemed to be the size of a large mill-stone.[2]

Georg Richmann[edit]

A 1753 report depicts ball lightning as having been lethal when professor Georg Richmann of Saint Petersburg, Russia, created a kite-flying apparatus similar to Benjamin Franklin's proposal a year earlier. Richmann was attending a meeting of the Academy of Sciences when he heard thunder and ran home with his engraver to capture the event for posterity. While the experiment was under way, ball lightning appeared and travelled down the string, struck Richmann's forehead and killed him. The ball had left a red spot on Richmann's forehead, his shoes were blown open, and his clothing was singed. His engraver was knocked unconscious. The door frame of the room was split and the door was torn from its hinges.[12]

HMS Warren Hastings[edit]

An English journal reported that during an 1809 storm, three "balls of fire" appeared and "attacked" the British ship HMS Warren Hastings. The crew watched one ball descend, killing a man on deck and setting the main mast on fire. A crewman went out to retrieve the fallen body and was struck by a second ball, which knocked him back and left him with mild burns. A third man was killed by contact with the third ball. Crew members reported a persistent, sickening sulfur smell afterward.[13][14]

Ebenezer Cobham Brewer[edit]

Ebenezer Cobham Brewer, in his 1864 US edition of A Guide to the Scientific Knowledge of Things Familiar, discussed "globular lightning". He describes it as slow-moving balls of fire or explosive gas that sometimes fall to the earth or run along the ground during a thunderstorm. He said that the balls sometimes split into smaller balls and may explode "like a cannon".[15]

Wilfrid de Fonvielle[edit]

In his book Thunder and Lightning,[16] translated into English in 1875, French science writer Wilfrid de Fonvielle wrote that there had been about 150 reports of globular lightning:


Globular lightning seems to be particularly attracted to metals; thus it will seek the railings of balconies, or else water or gas pipes etc, It has no peculiar tint of its own but will appear of any colour as the case may be ... at Coethen in the Duchy of Anhalt it appeared green. M. Colon, Vice-President of the Geological Society of Paris, saw a ball of lightning descend slowly from the sky along the bark of a poplar tree; as soon as it touched the earth it bounced up again, and disappeared without exploding. On 10th of September 1845 a ball of lightning entered the kitchen of a house in the village of Salagnac in the valley of Correze. This ball rolled across without doing any harm to two women and a young man who were here; but on getting into an adjoining stable it exploded and killed a pig which happened to be shut up there, and which, knowing nothing about the wonders of thunder and lightning, dared to smell it in the most rude and unbecoming manner.

The motion of such balls is far from being very rapid – they have even been observed occasionally to pause in their course, but they are not the less destructive for all that. A ball of lightning which entered the church of Stralsund, on exploding, projected a number of balls which exploded in their turn like shells.[17]

Tsar Nicholas II[edit]

Tsar Nicholas II, the last Emperor of Russia, reported witnessing what he called "a fiery ball" while in the company of his grandfather, Tsar Alexander II: "Once my parents were away," recounted the Tsar, "and I was at the all-night vigil with my grandfather in the small church in Alexandria. During the service there was a powerful thunderstorm, streaks of lightning flashed one after the other, and it seemed as if the peals of thunder would shake even the church and the whole world to its foundations. Suddenly it became quite dark, a blast of wind from the open door blew out the flame of the candles which were lit in front of the iconostasis, there was a long clap of thunder, louder than before, and I suddenly saw a fiery ball flying from the window straight towards the head of the Emperor. The ball (it was of lightning) whirled around the floor, then passed the chandelier and flew out through the door into the park. My heart froze, I glanced at my grandfather – his face was completely calm. He crossed himself just as calmly as he had when the fiery ball had flown near us, and I felt that it was unseemly and not courageous to be frightened as I was. I felt that one had only to look at what was happening and believe in the mercy of God, as he, my grandfather, did. After the ball had passed through the whole church, and suddenly gone out through the door, I again looked at my grandfather. A faint smile was on his face, and he nodded his head at me. My panic disappeared, and from that time I had no more fear of storms."[18]

Aleister Crowley[edit]

British occultist Aleister Crowley reported witnessing what he referred to as "globular electricity" during a thunderstorm on Lake Pasquaney[19] in New Hampshire in 1916. He was sheltered in a small cottage when he "noticed, with what I can only describe as calm amazement, that a dazzling globe of electric fire, apparently between six and twelve inches (15–30 cm) in diameter, was stationary about six inches below and to the right of my right knee. As I looked at it, it exploded with a sharp report quite impossible to confuse with the continuous turmoil of the lightning, thunder and hail, or that of the lashed water and smashed wood which was creating a pandemonium outside the cottage. I felt a very slight shock in the middle of my right hand, which was closer to the globe than any other part of my body."[20]

R.C. Jennison[edit]

Jennison, of the Electronics Laboratory at the University of Kent, described his own observation of ball lightning:


I was seated near the front of the passenger cabin of an all-metal airliner (Eastern Airlines Flight EA 539) on a late night flight from New York to Washington. The aircraft encountered an electrical storm during which it was enveloped in a sudden bright and loud electrical discharge (0005 h EST, March 19, 1963). Some seconds after this a glowing sphere a little more than 20 cm in diameter emerged from the pilot's cabin and passed down the aisle of the aircraft approximately 50 cm from me, maintaining the same height and course for the whole distance over which it could be observed.[21]

Other accounts[edit]

Ball lightning entering via the chimney (1886)On 30 April 1877, a ball of lightning entered the Golden Temple at Amritsar, India, and exited through a side door. Several people observed the ball, and the incident is inscribed on the front wall of Darshani Deodhi.[22]
On 22 November 1894, an unusually prolonged instance of natural ball lightning occurred in Golden, Colorado, which suggests it could be artificially induced from the atmosphere. The Golden Globe newspaper reported, "A beautiful yet strange phenomenon was seen in this city on last Monday night. The wind was high and the air seemed to be full of electricity. In front of, above and around the new Hall of Engineering of the School of Mines, balls of fire played tag for half an hour, to the wonder and amazement of all who saw the display. In this building is situated the dynamos and electrical apparatus of perhaps the finest electrical plant of its size in the state. There was probably a visiting delegation from the clouds, to the captives of the dynamos on last Monday night, and they certainly had a fine visit and a roystering game of romp."[23]
On 22 May 1901 in the Kazakh city of Ouralsk in the Russian Empire (now Oral, Kazakhstan), "a dazzlingly brilliant ball of fire" descended gradually from the sky during a thunderstorm, then entered into a house where 21 people had taken refuge, "wreaked havoc with the apartment, broke through the wall into a stove in the adjoining room, smashed the stove-pipe, and carried it off with such violence that it was dashed against the opposite wall, and went out through the broken window". The incident was reported in the Bulletin of the Societe astronomique de France the following year.[24]
In July 1907 the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse in Western Australia was hit by ball lightning. Lighthouse keeper Patrick Baird was in the tower at the time and was knocked unconscious. His daughter Ethel recorded the event.[25]
An early fictional reference to ball lightning appears in a children's book set in the 19th century by Laura Ingalls Wilder.[26] The books are considered historical fiction, but the author always insisted they were descriptive of actual events in her life. In Wilder's description, three separate balls of lightning appear during a winter blizzard near a cast iron stove in the family's kitchen. They are described as appearing near the stovepipe, then rolling across the floor, only to disappear as the mother (Caroline Ingalls) chases them with a willow-branch broom.[27]
Pilots in World War II described an unusual phenomenon for which ball lightning has been suggested as an explanation. The pilots saw small balls of light moving in strange trajectories, which came to be referred to as foo fighters.
Submariners in WWII gave the most frequent and consistent accounts of small ball lightning in the confined submarine atmosphere. There are repeated accounts of inadvertent production of floating explosive balls when the battery banks were switched in or out, especially if mis-switched or when the highly inductive electrical motors were mis-connected or disconnected. An attempt later to duplicate those balls with a surplus submarine battery resulted in several failures and an explosion.[28]
On 6 August 1944, a ball of lightning went through a closed window in Uppsala, Sweden, leaving a circular hole about 5 centimetres (2.0 in) in diameter. The incident was witnessed by residents in the area, and was recorded by a lightning strike tracking system[29] on the Division for Electricity and Lightning Research at Uppsala University.[30]
In 1954 Domokos Tar, a physicist, observed a lightning strike during a heavy thunderstorm.[31][32] A single bush was flattened in the wind. Some seconds later a speedy rotating ring (cylinder) appeared in the shape of a wreath. The ring was about 5 metres (16 ft) away from the lightning impact point. The ring's plane was perpendicular to the ground and in full view of the observer. The outer/inner diameters were about 60 and 30 centimetres (24 and 12 in) respectively. The ring rotated quickly about 80 cm (31 in) above the ground. It was composed of wet leaves and dirt and rotated counter clockwise. After seconds the ring became self-illuminated turning increasingly red, then orange, yellow and finally white. The ring (cylinder) at the outside was similar to a sparkler.[33] In spite of the rain, many electrical high voltage discharges could be seen.[34] After some seconds, the ring suddenly disappeared and simultaneously the ball lightning appeared in the middle. Initially the ball had only one tail and it rotated in the same direction as the ring. It was homogeneous and showed no transparency. In the first moment the ball hovered motionless, but then began to move forward on the same line with a constant speed of about 1 metre per second (3.3 ft/s). It was stable and travelled at the same height in spite of the heavy rain and strong wind. After moving about 10 m (33 ft) it suddenly disappeared without any noise.
On 10 July 2011, during a powerful thunderstorm, a ball of light with a two-metre (6 ft 7 in) tail went through a window to the control room of local emergency services in Liberec, Czech Republic. The ball bounced from window to the ceiling, then to the floor and back to the ceiling, where it rolled along it for two or three metres. Then it dropped to the floor and disappeared. The staff present in the control room were frightened, smelled electricity and burned cables and thought something was burning. The computers froze (not crashed) and all communications equipment was knocked out for the night until restored by technicians. Aside from damages caused by disrupting equipment, only one computer monitor was destroyed.[35]
On Dec 15th 2014, flight BE-6780 (Saab 2000) in the UK experienced ball lightning in the forward cabin just before lightning struck the aircraft nose.[36]

Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is
lightning that does the work. --Mark Twainl
Lightning has always terrified and fascinated people. It has also inspired many myths and much superstition. For example, some misinformed people righteously assert that lightning never strikes twice in the same place. Actually, the odds for lightning hitting twice in the same spot are excellent. The conditions that attracted it in the first place--a protninence in a flat area, for example--are likely to attract it again. The Greeks and Remans thought thunderbolts were weapons of the gods. Since scientists have now explained ordinary streak lightning as a high-voltage electrical discharge, people’s fascination has been transferred to the other forms of lightning: sheet lightning, in which no single bolt is visible; St. Elmo’s fire, a glow emitted by charged objects such as airplane wings; and ball lightning (also called ‘‘Kugelblitz’ ‘). Ball lightning is usually described as a moving, luminous sphere which lasts a few seconds and then dies out, either silently or explosively. Ball lightning is probably the most mysterious lightning phenomenon because scientists have utterly failed to explain it. Many researchers have viewed reports of ball lightning with the kind of skepticism and distaste usually reserved for reports of psi phenomena and UFOS. Until recently, scientists even debated the existence of ball lightning--explaining it as hallucination, optical illusion, or observer hysteria. The only evidence for it was anecdotal, mainly from amateur sightings. But reports of ball lightning have appeared in the scientific press for over a century. In 188S, science published this account by a ship’s captain named Waters: “All at once a large mass of fire appeared over the vessel, completely blindlng the spectators; and, as it fell into the sea some fifty yards to leeward, it caused a hissing sound, which was heard above the blast, and made the vessel quiver from stem to stem.”2 In 1930, an anonymous account in Nature reported that “a number of globes of light were seen of the size of billiard balls, extending from a few inches
above the surface to a height of 7-8 feet. They slowly rose and fell vertically, sometimes within a few inches of the observers but always eluding the grasp.”3 It is always pleasant for me to demonstrate the creative use of information retrieval. The ball lightning phenomenon, with its combination of mystery and possible utility, is just such an opportunity. I hope that the new generation of science teachers will use the information retrieval techniques described here to get students interested in tracing the history of other scientific discoveries. By using the Science Citation tndefl in this way, students can feel the excitement of discovery as the threads of scientific cloth are unraveled. According to the results of a search by my versatile colleague, A.E. Cawkell,4 an article with the incredL ble title “Thunderbolts as the X-Weapon” appeared in November 1%2 in the now defunct journal Diseavery. The paper, by C. M. Cade, contained this account of an attempt to calculate the energy of ball lightning: “A fireball ‘the size of a large orange’ which was observed in Dorstone, Hereford, on October 3rd, 1936, fell into a water butt containing about four gallons of water, which tilled for some minutes, and 20 minutes later was still too hot for the human hand. From this data, Professor B.L. Goodlet has calculated that the minimum energy of this fireball was 3,800 kilowatt-seconds....”5 Unfortunately, the author supplies no further reference for the mysterious Professor Goodlet. So the detective work begins. As it turns out, we were unable to find anyone who had ever cited Cade’s paper, at least within the 15 years we’ve compiled the SCF’ . But as I’ve often repeated, a name ms,y be all one needs to begin an SCI search. Goodlet’s papers in the J LEE were cited in 1970 by M.D. Altschuler of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, Colors@ in 1971 by E. Argyle of the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory, British Columbia; and again in 1971 by P.C. W. Davies of the Institute of Theoretical Astronomy, Cambridge, England. This is shown in the figure opposite, in which we have provided a selected portion of the now extensive ball lightning literature. In 1971, Argyle drew parallels between ball lightning and visual afterimages: “The behavior and apparent properties of the positive afterimage are strikkgly similar to those of ball lightning. Its shape wiU be the same as that of the exciting source, and it will commonly be described as a ball . . . . Positive afterimages last 2-10 seconds, depending on circumstances, and most lightning balls are reported to have a duration in the same range. Positive afterimages dkappear rather suddenly, as do lightning balls.”6 Argyle dismissed Goodlet’s report that water in a rain barrel had been heated by ball lightning as ‘‘unreliable.” Each explanation advanced for the ball lightning phenomenon is unsatisfactory in some respect. Early explanations held that ball lightning is formed by the combustion of material released by a lightning stroke on its impact with the ground. This material, either particles or gases, might be confined by a vortex, in the same manner as a smoke ring. Edward Hill of the University of Minnesota modified this theory to suggest that when a lightning stroke produces a separation of charges in such a ball of material, miniature lightning strokes occur within the ball. T. Neugebauer postulated that ball lightning consists of dense plasma containing large numbers of free electrons and positive ions. Altschuler and his colleagues suggested that ball lightning may be a nuclear phenomenon involving the production of radioactive products, whose beta-decay would cause a glow in surrounding air molecules. A bizarre but not implausible theory was discussed in the same 19 March 1971 issue of Nature in which Argyle’s “optical illusion” article was published. An article by D. E.T.F. Ashby and C. Whitehead of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority suggested that ball lightning is caused by antimatter meteorites which annhilate normal matter, creating a luminous ball. Actually, this idea was first proposed by Ahschuler, who wrote in 1969 that “the hypothesis of antimatter meteorites is intriguing. lf a significant amount of antimatter does exist in the universe, it is possible that tiny grains of antimatter might penetrate our galaxy and collide with the earth’s atmosphere. Entering at high speeds, the grain might survive until it reached the troposphere. A fraction of a microgram of antimatter would destroy an equal mass of matter and release many megajoules of energy, perhaps creating luminous spheres.” The antimatter theory was supported when Ashby and Whitehead, using radiation detectors, observed four ‘‘unusual” radiation events. They concluded that, “The radiation events are consistent with the proposed existence of micron-sized particles of antimatter and their duration is similar to that of ball lightning; however, the correlation with thunderstorms is uncertain.” As the ball lightning phenomenon became more scientifically respectable, two particular “events” began to be discussed by many authors. The first was Jennison’s (University of Kent) 1969 report of a lightning ball passing down the central aisle of an aircraft. Since the plane was a tanker with a full load of aviation fuel, one can imagine the observer’s relief when the yellow-white lightning ball ““danced out over the right wing” and disappeared into the night. The second event was Covington’s (National Research Council of Canada) 1970 observations of a drifting lightning ball which demolished the pile of a wharf, and of another lightning ball which emerged from the fireplace in a lakeside house, traveled across the room, and passed through a closed door without causing any damage. Is The two articles by Argyle and Ashby were cited in several letters to journals in 1971. Argyle’s idea that ball lightning is an optical illusion was rebutted by authors who cited their own and other observers’ welldocumented sightings. Ashby’s antimatter notion had a mixed reception. The UFO phenomenon entered the ball lightning story via AkschuIer’s 1969 article in the Condon UFO report, which explained some UFO sightings as ball lightning. The chapter was cited by several authors. As an exercise in demonstrating that all phenomena and disciplines are somehow connected to one another, the ball lightning story has few equals. In 1973, for example, A.J. P. Blair of Germany used a novel method to calculate the magnetic energy in a lightning ball as 1S0 gauss. Nature carried the report, which stated, “In the parish of Samford-Courtney in Devon on October 7, 1811, a sudden darkness came on, and a tire ball fell in the vicinity of the church. The ringers in the belfry, ringing at the time, declared that they never knew the bells go so heavy, and were obliged to desist ringing. Looking down from the belfry into the church, they perceived four fire balls, which suddenly burst, and the church was fdled with fire and smoke, some of which ascended to the tower, where a large beam, on which one of the bells was hung, was broken, and the gudgeon breaking, the bell fell to the floor.There is also a connection to nuclear fusion in the ball lightning story. In a well-cited 1955 article, the Russian physicist Peter Kapitsa proposed that ball lightning results from a standing wave system in the electromagnetic field which accompanies thunderstorms. Windows and chimneys, through which ball lightning is often reported to have travelled, would act as waveguides for these standing waves. Elements of this idea were later used in a Soviet experimental fusion reactor, and stable balls of plasma were produced. Another theory involves focused cosmic-ray particles, and still another postulates that ball lightning is produced by the decay of ordhary lightning in the presence of large amounts of water. The theoretical situation regarding ball lightning still is rather confused. It has not vet been determined whether ball lightning is a single phenomenon or a series of phenomena with diverse origins. No one has succeeded in producing ball lightning in the laboratory, although a few photographs have been reported. Just a year ago, in a search for photographic evidence of ball lightning, two researchers at the University of Wyoming examined over 10,000 Prarie Meteorite Network photographs which contained images of over 100,000 lightning strokes. They reported tindlng six ball lightning ‘‘caddate” events. “In all of the ball candidate events the scenario is the same: an ordinary appearing lightning stroke ends above ground and what appears to be a ball (producing a sequence of images) falls out of it and goes to earth. ” 17 More recently, photographic evidence of an object “which may be similar to some varieties of ball lightning” was reported in September 1975 by three French authors, R. F;eux and C. Gary of Electricity de France, Direction des Etudes et Recherches, and P. Hubert of Commissariats 2 l’Energie Atomique, Service d’Electronique Physique, Centre d’Etudes Nuc16aires de Saclay. In a kind of reenactment of Benjamin Franklin’s kke-and-key lightning experiment, they launched rockets with wires attached into the atmosphere. This technique was developed, they said, “in the hope of perhaps shedding new light on the controversial subject of ball lightning, since according to published statistics ball lightning is mentioned in more than 40% of the cases in which an observer describes a nearby lightning stroke. ” Although these researchers did not observe anything “comparable with the more remarkable tales of ball lightning folklore,” they did observe and photograph the appearance of luminous “beads” during the decay of triggered lightning. “The beads generally have an initial diameter of the order of 40 cm which decreases gradually with a total lifetime of 0.3s at most. During long-lasting strokes, the initially straight channel adopts on a progressively more tortuous shape and the biggest beads occur where tortuousness is a maximum. Since there is a positive correlation between diameter and lifetime, it follows that at the end of the decay there are one or two luminous balls only. In general these objects have an upward motion of 1 or 2 m s -1, which gives an overall picture consistent with the hypothesis of a gradually cooling spheroid of hot gas. ” In the same paper, the authors lend support to the early theory involving combustion of material released from the ground. They note that “light emission occurred at the foot of wooden posts” in the test area. “The light-emitting region was stationary, in contact with the ground at the place where the post enters the earth. Its shape seems roughly spherical with a diameter of about 25 cm . ...” They comment, “It is not surprising that some underground outgassing occurs and that the gasses escape at the point where the posts puncture the uPPer layer. It remains to be decided whether the light comes from hot gases only or from a combustion involving hydrogen or methane, for instance, or from a localized electric discharge mechanism. ” Just a few weeks ago, Mark Stenhoff of the Physics Department of Royal Holloway College reported a case in which a woman touched and was injured by ball lightning. Stenhoff reported in Nature that on 8 August 1975, the woman, who lives in the Midlands area of England, was in her kitchen during a thunderstorm “when a sphere of light appeared over the cooker. The ball twas z 10 cm across and surrounded by a flame-colored halo; its color was bright blue to purple. The ball moved straight towards the witness at an estimated height of 95 cm from the ground. Burning heat was felt, and there was a singeing smell. A sound something like a“rattle was heard.”19 The woman herself reported that, “The ball seemed to hit me below the belt, as it were, and I automatically brushed it from me and it just disappeared. Where 1 brushed it away there appeared a redness and swelling on my left hand. It seemed as if my gold wedding ring was burning into my finger. ” The lightning ball produced a hole in the woman’s dress and underwear at the point where it struck her. Her legs became red and numb. The woman, who had never before heard of ball lightning, felt that the ball exploded just as she touched it. Commenting on this report in a Nature editorial, P.C. W. Davies notes that progress in ball lightning research is hampered by the lack of precise, reliable observational data. He suggests that, “The present unsatisfactory situation would be greatly improved if the aura of mystery and superstition surrounding unusual aerial events were dispelled. Good, detailed eye-witness reports of luminous balls are frequently made by competent ob-, servers such as airline pilots, but are rarely passed on to scientists. Instead, many of them find their way into miiitary tiles, where they are shrouded in a ridiculous secrecy. (Incredibly, the British Ministry of Defence continues to deny scientists access to their accounts of these events. ) With proper cooperation between scientists and the public, particularly the local press, and the civil aircraft authorities, it would be possible to follow up ball lightning reports rapidly, enabling tests for radioactivity and so forth to be carried out. “20 To help clarify the situation, a few individuals have turned their energies to collecting ball lightning rep&-ts. One of these is William Corliss of Glen Arm, Maryland, a consultant to NASA who has compiled Strange Phenomena, Zf a ‘‘sourcebook” which contains abstracts of 75 ball lightning reports. Also notable is the ball lightning bibliography compiled by J.D. Barry of the US Air Force’s Space and Missile Systems Organization, Los Angeles. This bibliography, copies of which are available from the author, cites over 1,100 ball lightning reports and references spanning 3S0 years.22 Another excellent source of information on the scientific history of ball lightning is a book published in 1971, The Nature of Ball Lightning by Stanley Singer, director of Athenex Research Associates, Pasadena, Califomia. According to Singer, Faraday felt that any relation between ball lightning and streak lightning was “more than doubtful, ” and Lord Kelvin held that ball lightning was nothing more than an optical illusion.
Returning to the 1962 article by Cade, we’ve been unable to find any other articles about “X-Weapons.” Maybe the idea was impractical--or maybe the work was so successful that it was classified. What surprises me most about the ball lightning story is the failure of any leading American or Soviet journal to present a comprehensive discussion of this area of research. The state of the literature on ball lightning is similar to Shakespeare’s description of Romeo and Juliet’s love:
It is too rash, too unadvis ‘d,
too sudden:
Too like the lightning; which cloth
cease to be
Ere one can say it lightens.

Tunguska 1908
The explosion released enough energy to kill reindeer and flatten trees for many kilometers around the blast site. But no crater was ever found.

Sounds like ball lightning to me ! 8-)

--- actually, you are right even though you thought you were making a little joke (very little).
The Tunguska explosion was the result of an AIR BURST ! like the proverbial ball lightning you detest --- the hypothesis is that some of the BL can explode in an AIR BURST --- waddiyaknow ..... you and agree on something !

--- you once again missed the point --- not that you can't approximately decipher the meaning --- but that the translator can't even make a sentence --- I POINT OUT THAT YOU SUPPLIED THE VERB MAKING THE SENTENCE MAKE SENSE: "In this case the statement is referring to the cap FOUND on the scene." or conversely it could supply a connective to the previous sentence. such as "and a" So we don't always know if we are interpreting the translator correctly.

Hi Nigel;

re: " don't think the canvas could be tested for microwaves other than showing it's been exposed to heat via water content heating up. "

--- there might be some subtle changes in molecular structure -- of coating, of dyes, of glues, perhaps the canvas -- a thing like flipping the position of a bond and bending a molecule into a different shape would show up. What I don't know is can someone get samples of the original materials that the cloth was treated with --- un-irradiated --- to compare with the tent.

--- any water in / on the tent would flash off at its boiling point (or thereabouts) and so would not heat the molecules (of the other stuff) up enough to cause a change; but a microwave would.

However, I do not wish to be the sole dictator and own the domain name and have control over the hosting/cpanel etc. I have alot of experience with this. If anyone already has about 3gigs avail space on an existing host and is interested, please let me know. Here is one of my works... Over 600 members. http://sks-files.com/index.php there is also a bunch of features you cannot see until you are a member. It can be setup in just about a day. Contributors can post information to be stickied, all related case files can be stored for easy access etc. The possibilities are endless. But I won't be the boss and owner.... Someone else can be administrator in chief.

When I first started posting here, I thought this was a place where a person could ask questions, get answers, debate, a general place to hash out ideas.
Boy, was I wrong ,here are the 1st 2 replies I received to a question I had asked :

"sorry if my years if study intimidates you --
that's your problem not mine."
"Once again: read ALL of my posts as I have
already answered many of these questions before"

Didn't take me long to drop to this level

Seems it has to be about BL, the way I see it the BL people have ONLY 2 things to point to, "someone has seen lights in the sky" and what I take to be some damaged or accidental exposures. Everybody has a right to their own opinion. But when you go to attacking me, your going to get it back. (probably not the best way to be)
It seems every comment has to be about the God BL and BL explains EVERYTHING !
It feels like your being indoctrinated into a cult !!!

"I'm considering just not responding to you or KMM anymore because you're just dragging the quality of the conversation into ignorant idiot territory."

There ya go... Take your ball and go home because you don't agree with someone while bullying them with names. Simply because you do not like what your hearing doesn't constitute a decline in conversation quality. You Nigel, have just as much part in all this as I do. Its still a free country Nigel, do as you please. BTW... You have posted alot of stuff and its hard to keep track of exactly what you do or do not subscribe to, but I do recall alot of assigning burns to BL.

What clothing articles were burned by the stove?
Nigel Evans 06-09-2017 13:51 (GMT)
@LC - as much as i hate getting into cheap pantomime "oh yes it is, oh no it isn't" i have to yet again point out that you're talking rubbish because you never read anything that's posted.
Search for "concussed or unattended" should be 4 posts most of them recent where i specifically point out the existence of the fire creates ambiguity as to the origin of the burns. The clothing is of course even more ambiguous because (as i've also pointed out) the stove had a habit of burning drying clothing.
I'm considering just not responding to you or KMM anymore because you're just dragging the quality of the conversation into ignorant idiot territory.
We really need a BB where people can filter others out.
Loose-Cannon 06-09-2017 12:38 (GMT)
Why am I not surprised.... The first step to recovery is admitting not all aspects of the case have to involve BL.

You... By default, were the one explaining away burns having 'had' to be made via fireball. They were only 1m away from the fire btw...

Hi Nigel and KMM!

"Near the fire, a half-burnt sock and a cowboy shirt were found. In the shirt money - 8 rubles. Semi-burnt helmet of greenish color. North of the fire at a distance of one meter head to the west, legs to the east near the corpses lie in the number of two."

Now, anyone having an issue with the context of these statements is just a full blown retard. If you ever bother to look at the original case files instead of having your head up each others ballsack, you will know what was found where. In this case the statement is referring to the cap found on the scene. Further more it tells the condition of said cap which I will leave to Nigel yo tell you whom it belonged to and why it was burnt and the head/hair was slightly burnt ...... Being found next to a god damn fire that is.



"The right leg is undressed, on the left is a torn brown sock identical to the detected half-burned near the fire."

Well lookie there... The left leg wearing the matching sock to the burnt sock found next to the fire. Interesting to note, Nigel would have one believe "oh they were drying their cloths over a fire for days". Unfortunately... Per the facts, the investigators made no extra mention to the other articles of clothing being burned. Now, you can run around the facts all day long but you know, and I know... That these items were addressed in a spicific condition because the condition was not of the others. In other words, this is NOT regular old drying of clothes.

You have a burned head and cap, you have a burned leg and sock. All next to a FIRE (which had pretty large half burned branches btw). The extent some have gone to twist the burned leg and head into being cosmic rays, BL electrical burns and the like are just plain false. Having the integrity to admit common sense can go a long freaking way is another matter.

Again.... Read the original case files. They are THE ONLY known documented facts we have. No fantastical conjecture required. The facts shown above are basic, and other examples are quite abundant within the evidence if you ditch the tunnel vision for just a moment.

@john. Just stop trolling me and being a baby. Your BL theory is no more important then any of the others, and your not convincing anyone otherwise by posting a buncha crap stating BL exists.

Lots of accounts on this site with witnesses, try this page - http://www.ball-lightning.info/Ball-lightning/Roller.html . Nearly all BL accounts have witnesses else you wouldn't have a report?

@LC - if it's the burnt clothing the problem here is that they've spent a week drying their clothing on the stove and regularly burning it if the person on watch wasn't attentive. Hence photo of burnt jacket. I'd like to connect the burnt clothing with BL but the stove prevents this.

exactly what does "Semi-burnt helmet of greenish color. " mean ?? Its not even close to a sentence. (not that LC would notice)

or what does : "legs to the east near the corpses lie in the number of two" mean ???

is that clear ?..... or what ? --- I'm going with what. What we know for sure that is --- numerous reports of something like ball lightning, accompanied by reports of explosions --- by numerous people and groups, spanning over a hundred years in time -- IN THAT AREA ! People who had no reason to even know each other existed -- no plot to confuse anyone -- they simply were reporting what they saw and heard -- ball lightning. (or whatever you want to call it) As for people who are just dead set on a murder plot -- put up or shut up -- show us some evidence. You're wasting precious digital space with your malarkey -- show me a decent translation to make sense out of. Otherwise you're just trying to waste our time with BS. What's your "theory" about the snow melted into ice? Yeti with flame-throwers? Martian landing craft ? Any reports of those in the last 100 years ? Do you seriously think the starved-for-cash-Soviet-Government tested some sort of secret weapon which no one has ever heard of (nor ever seen) by killing very expensive students of science and engineering ? ? ?

Just a crazy wild ars idea.... How about look at the original case files? Strange concept I know...

"near the cedar in 2 - 2,5 meters are broken off dry branches. The branches are broken off and on the cedar itself. Under the cedar in the pit found traces of the fire, as evidenced by half-burnt branches. Near the fire, a half-burnt sock and a cowboy shirt were found. In the shirt money - 8 rubles. Semi-burnt helmet of greenish color. North of the fire at a distance of one meter head to the west, legs to the east near the corpses lie in the number of two. Identified: Krivonischenko Yuri Alekseevich face up, wearing a shirt cowboy, torn pants. The head is thrown back, the eyes are closed, the mouth is closed, the lips are compressed, the right hand is thrown behind the head, the left arm is bent, the hand is raised above the chest. The right leg is extended, the left leg is slightly bent at the knees. The right leg is undressed, on the left is a torn brown sock identical to the detected half-burned near the fire."

See anything interesting Nigel??

Hi Nigel (and Anna) and others who are interested in the ball lightning thing: I don't want to eliminate that "electrical" theory on that web-page, as some of the observations about the electrical structure of surrounding hills and land might contribute to this BL; which no one really understands. WHAT THE HECK IS IT ? Could it be that the electrical properties of those hills is what creates the BL ? That they are a necessary condition ?

also, Nigel : I've posted that wiki on microwave burns twice (and noted yours) --- I was wondering if, given today's technology what the material of the tent might show -- I wonder what tests we have now that we didn't have in the 1950's -- for instance, could intense microwaves (or other electrical) cause a detectable chemical change in the cloth / dyes / ducking (the waterproofing) that we might look for; maybe with a gas chromatograph, or a mass spectrometer of some sort, including magnetic.

You can thank the arrogant narcissist assmonkey bottom dwelling cheeto-stained wife-beater wearing Mr. I-am-the-authority so don't have a differing opinion or I will conduct myself like a little titty-baby whiny-crybaby pissy-pants toddler.

Heck, the BL theory actually had 'some' credibility before John the Narcissist started ridiculing those who do not lick his toes while he googles fireballs. 99% of the BL discussion has been spent posting needless crap in a self indulging need to prove BL exist. We know it exists you asshat but unfortunately for you, its very existence does NOT in anyway prove jack squat in regards to what happened to the Dyatlov group. All I see here is a narrow-minded echo chamber with a few folks that utterly cannot think outside the box and consider ALL possibilities. Shame really... Perhaps I should start a 'real' forum on my hosted server split into numerous theory sections and completely ban arrogant twits who attempt to bully people out of free thought.

@KMM - autobiographical in the extreme?
KMM 05-09-2017 20:55 (GMT)
Here, I did it for you :

How Narcissists See Themselves

1. I love myself and I know you do, too; in fact, everyone does—I can’t imagine anyone that doesn’t.

2. I have no need to apologize. You, however, must understand, accept, and tolerate me no matter what I do or say.

3. I have few equals in this world, and so far, I have yet to meet one. I am the best (manager, businessman, lover, student, etc. . . .).

4. Most people don’t measure up. Without me to lead, others would flounder.

5. I appreciate that there are rules and obligations, but those apply mostly to you because I don’t have the time or the inclination to abide by them. Besides, rules are for the average person, and I am far above average.

6. I hope you appreciate all that I am and everything that I have achieved for you—because I am wonderful and faultless.

7. I do wish we could be equals, but we are not and never will be. I will remind you with unapologetic frequency that I am the smartest person in the room and how well I did in school, in business, as a parent, etc., and you must be grateful.

8. I may seem arrogant and haughty, and that’s OK with me—I just don’t want to be seen as being like you.

9. I expect you to be loyal to me at all times, no matter what I do; however, don’t expect me to be loyal to you in any way.

10. I will criticize you and I expect you to accept it, but if you criticize me, especially in public, I will come at you with rage. One more thing: I will never forget or forgive, and I will pay you back one way or another—because I am a “wound collector.”

11. I expect you to be interested in what I have achieved and in what I have to say. I, on the other hand am not at all interested in you or in what you have achieved, so don’t expect much curiosity or interest from me about your life. I just don’t care.

12. I am not manipulative; I just like to have things done my way, no matter how much it inconveniences others or how it makes them feel. I actually don’t care how others feel—feelings are for the weak.

13. I expect gratitude at all times, for even the smallest things I do. As for you, I expect you to do as I demand.

14. I only associate with the best people, and frankly, most of your friends don’t measure up.

15. If you would just do what I say and obey, things would be better.
Nigel Evans 05-09-2017 20:06 (GMT)
Hi John, ommiserations with the keyboard.

Just pointing out what i said back then :-
"@Rol88 - coming back to you wrt the electrical burns in the tent and there being no sign of burning on the tent or it's contents.
What if their injuries were not electrical burns but microwave burns? - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microwave_burn This explains how they were injured in the tent without any burning elsewhere. The tent fabric would perhaps have got hot but not enough to discolour as it would take longer to heat up being colder and with a covering of snow, the damp cavities within the bamboo pole heated quickly and split it.
Perhaps the radiation was only intense at one end of the tent as the BL passed near, just affecting the pole and two occupants who in effect shielded the others.
Now you have your reason for cutting the tent open and getting everyone out as fast as possible."

Yes the mezoeletric stuff is interesting and the looo.ch site talks of anomolous terrain interfering with radar. Could all be true, but i think given the global reports of UFO activity that this phenomena or something similar can be induced solely by atmospheric effects.

Do any of you know that the way your microwave oven works is largely by heating the water molecules in the food you are cooking/heating. With this in mind -- the microwave damage to skin should be minimal --- unless the skin is WET ! You know, like if you were outside, with exposed skin, in a snowstorm.

Human body is like 50-65% water. Don't you think it would show internal damage ?

I've been trying to read about microwave injuries as I'm thinking about how BL might be formed (by a cavitation magnetron at the end of an ion streamer -- no, you don't know what it is, but here is what wiki mentioned in one case of microwave exposure -- 600W for about five seconds on hands and forearm) :

"On July 29, 1977, H.F., a 51-year-old teacher, was attempting to remove a casserole dish from her new 600-watt microwave oven. The oven signaled the end of the heating cycle, but the light and the cooking blower were on. During retrieval of the dish, she inserted two thirds of her bare forearms into the oven, for a total time of about five seconds. The oven was still operating. She felt "hot pulsating sensation" and burning in fingers and fingernails and a sensation of "needles" over the exposed areas. Jabbing pain, swelling, and RED-ORANGE DISCOLORATION of dorsal sides of both hands and forearms appeared shortly afterwards."

--- I don't know if this explains any of the discoloration seen in the 9 hikers --- but it might.

here's the wiki address: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microwave_burn

recall from my previous post -- that there was MELTED SNOW at the tent area for about 20 or 30 meters which turned the snow into ice --- ALSO --- searchers report that various small items of clothing were (blown from the tent area? and) locked into melted snow --- so tell me this --- how did this happen ? How did snow melt into water (and then re-freeze into ice -- in several large, many meters wide spherical patterns ) when it was night in a Siberian blizzard with high winds and snow falling and it was somewhere between minus 20 and minus 30 centigrade ? ... ON A MOUNTAIN SIDE ?

Do any of you know that the way your microwave oven works is largely by heating the water molecules in the food you are cooking/heating. With this in mind -- the microwave damage to skin should be minimal --- unless the skin is WET ! You know, like if you were outside, with exposed skin, in a snowstorm.
