25 Mysterious Death of The Expedition of Dyatlov

Mysterious Death of The Expedition of Dyatlov

Posted on August 26, 2011 by team

More than 50 years have passed since the moment of the death of Dyatlov’s expedition, though the reasons are still not clear. The investigation raises more and more questions. At the end of January of 1959 the expedition headed by a student, Igor Dyatlov, went on tour to the Northern Ural. The team consisted of seven boys and two girls. A month later, they were found by a search party not far away from their tent…

The bodies were found a mile away from the tent. Most died from exposure, however the others had severe internal injuries.

The official opinion of experts about the death of the members of the expedition: “The death was caused by an elemental force which the tourists were unable to overcome…”

The last shots of the group. The clearance of the ground for the tent.

    You mean like an unidentified force? UFO? Tunguska meteor?

    There is no mystery there. Snow-slip killed them.

      Actually, what the wikipedia says is: “Notably, the bodies had no external wounds, as if they were crippled by a high level of pressure.” So this is obviously was a snow slip. Just imagine for a moment… That happened at night. They were sleeping (this is why they were wearing few clothes) and suddenly a huge snow slip has covered their tent, crushing seriously four of them. In the middle of total darkness, they had to make a hole in their tent to get out rapidly. They had no time to get dressed neither to take a lantern. After that, they realized that their comrades were injured. So they tried to help them. As their clothes and supplies became unaccessible, the exposion to such a low temperature as -30C made them get hypothermia in few hours. So this was the only cause of death for most of them. This is the most realistic theory that some of the investigators raised. It’s just some people want to believe in rare stuff and like to exagerate the mistery.

    Avalanche. Or perhaps the boys started fighting over the girls, the fights are what gave them their internal injuries. The rest died from exposure, trying to get away from the situation. Kinda like “cabin fever”.

  8. The Stegosaur says:

    Very tragic, whatever was the exact reason.

  9. BlowME says:

    One of the versions (the main version) of their death I heard was from toxic materials and plasma from the failed ballistic rocket test launch. But the real cause is still a mystery because of the strange way they died.

    They were CIA spies and had to die … no wait … they were KGB spies who were moved to US to spy for Mother Russia. The deaths were a cover story!

  11. Otis R. Needleman says:

    What a shame. Maybe a Russian Bigfoot got them.

  12. Musa says:

    Fascinating and tragic story. They were all so young.

    The two girls hugging pic is 50 years ahead of its time.

  14. zokxy says:

    That are not two girls hugging – that is Yuri Yudin hugging Lyudmila Dubinina as he prepares to leave the group due to illness, as Igor Dyatlov looks on
