This is a neat read that was in the local paper today.  It's from a mysterious event that occurred in Russia in the 50s and was never properly solved.

Try this link:

http://www.sfgate.com/columnists/morford/

should only work for a day or so and then I'll see if it can be updated.  This is the OG article from sfgate.com where I found the link the the st pete's times article

I think they saw/heard something they shouldn't have, and Mother Russia responded with rifle butts and cutlery.

That story is fascinating.  One problem, though, is that it was three weeks from when the incident occurred and when anyone discovered them, not to mention a few more months before the damaged bodies were found.  That alone means some evidence was probably lost.

Very interesting stuff. Crushed bones with no surface damage? Odd.

I like the avalanche theory myself. But that doesn't fully explain the injuries.

That's the problem with the investigators getting there so late.  If there was an avalanche, the evidence of it was apparently gone since the official investigation doesn't really seem to have considered that likely.  Also, you would think the closer victims would have as much or more evidence of injury, not the ones found the farthest away.  And yet it's the close ones who were found near the evidence of a fire.

Edit: nor does that theory explain the radiation issue, the governments decision to close the area off for two years, or the military's refusal to take the bodies out by helicopter.

I guess it's the fact that the tents were ripped open from the inside in a hurry. Everything else is very strange indeed. I say they should exhume the bodies and do some testin'. There'd probably still be radiation, yeah?

Sounds like an xfiles episode. I remember flipping through the channels on the tv one night and saw part of a show about cattle mutilations in the southwest. Of course, there were the UFO folks who said it was a govt conspiracy and alien research type things. There was one vet that they interviewed that said scavenger animals will eat the tongues and *cringe* the genitals of dead animals first. That may explain the missing tongue on the skier.

The people without injuries were the ones who ran off and were coming back when they died of hypothermia.
Meaning they were running from something.  MY guess is it was something like an avalanche.  Which doesnt cover all the bases.  However, it might not have been a huge one, just big enough.  Once they were frozen solid, more damage could have been done via weight.

No one theory will explain it, but you have to account for:

1) Why people would run for the trees, without proper attire.
2) What would cause damage to the people who didnt get out of the campground
3) What could have happened after they all died.

My guess is something bad was coming as such it was either run and possibly die, or stay and die.  What else would be up there thats that dangerous?  Polar bears/UFO's? smile  I assume it was mountain/snow related.
Whatever they ran from did a number on the misfits in camp.  Or something happened after they died, since no one else was nearby.
anyone who run froze to death on the way back to get more clothing/etc.

Orrrrrrrrr.....

Something happened, like a gas cloud of CO2 came through (Or some kinda serious cold front?) that killed people in short order.   The people in the tent ran, holding thier breaths or looking for some kinda solace further down the mountain.... Bah.. I'ma just say the simpsons are to blame, just dont know how yet smile

The people that had the injuries did get out of the campsite and actually were found further from the campsite than the uninjured ones according to the article.

No one was found at the campsite. There are pictures of the tents online, there weren't buried. The uninjured ones were found easily, they had made a fire and died on their way back to camp of hypothermia. They think they may have been blind since they used fresh branches to make a fire while there was dry wood all over the place they could have used. But if it was dark, they wouldn't have seen the wood anyway.

The injured ones were buried in a river bed I believe it was.

Avalanche sounds good, except for the items that were at the camp site that didn't belong to the hikers (don't know what those items are), the radiation, the missing tongue, and that they family said all their hair was gray and they were tanned. Of course the story could be greatly exaggerated too, but why did the government keep everything a big secret for years as if there was nothing to hide.

Interestingly the Wikipedia article is locked (UFO wackos trying to make changes?) and marked for deletion. Seems there must be more to the story here.
