Here’s what went down at Dyatlov Pass in February of 1959:
Nine experienced ski hikers went missing, and their bodies were found a couple weeks later.
They were found scattered within several hundred meters of each other. It took months to recover all nine bodies.
Their tent had been ripped open from the inside, and their footprints in the snow led away from it.
They were in various states of undress, and barefoot or in socks. Some of them appeared to have wrapped themselves in clothing cut from already-fallen comrades.
Five of them were determined to have died of hypothermia. Three others had suffered massive fractures to their skulls and chests, akin to a car crash—though they had no soft tissue injuries. One (and only one) was missing her tongue.
High levels of radioactive contamination were detected on some of their clothes.
At least one relative remarked after the funerals that the hikers’ skin had turned deep brown in color. (*they were some pale fuckers)
Soviet officials mumbled something about their deaths being caused by a “compelling natural force” and then they sealed the documents relating to their inquest. Some of the files still have not been made public.
What the fuck?
I mean, what the fuck?
People like to try and “debunk” this one but I’ve yet to see a theory that accounts for all the weird shit going on here. Except Cthulhu. (Well, more accurately, Ithaqua.) ph’nglui mglw’nafh Ithaqua R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn.
