I read an alternate explanation on skeptoid that it may have been due to rising CO levels, that one of the people in the tent figured out what was going on, ripped it apart to get some air, they all kinda panicked and tried to get further down the mountain in a moment of irrationality.

That seems like a massive stretch considering the normal effects of CO poisoning are sleepiness, disorientation, and numbness. That's why so many people with faulty heaters just go to sleep and never wake up.

Unless someone notices what's happening. I've heard news reports of people with CO poisoning smashing windows before they pass out.

It may have been an early L.S.D test, by the Russkies.
On unwitting subjects.
Ergotism wasn't exactly unheard of at the time, and I think if it had been present, then the autopsies would have picked up on it. But whatever the exact cause, I'd bet one of my knackers on it being something to do with them all being Royally fucked up on some kind of Drug that none of them were accustomed to.
And it's not like the Russian Govt had any more scruples than the US Govt when it came to testing Drugs on unwitting citizens, just to see how fucked up it got them.

Right. Before they pass out. Not before they mass panic and go some distance from their tent and build a fire under a large pine tree.

It's the crushing and missing parts that really muddy the water.

Nope.  4 meters of wet snow is enough to crush someone, and scavengers eat the soft bits first.

I'm glad I finally know what the incident was called though. I heard about it word of mouth a couple of years ago, but with less detail.

I saw one suggestion in further reading that the woman bit her tongue off, which is unlikely considering they seem to have examined stomach contacts. Animals don't make sense to me because that victim was one of the ones buried in the snow.

I thought footprints were still visible.

They weren't near the other ones though. I think the footprints were the ones who made the campfire.

We should ask that Watson robot that beat everyone at Jeopardy.  It might be able to make sense of this.

Unless it was the culprit, obviously, in which case we would be hilariously, utterly, doomed.

So either the aliens got them or we've got incompelte / inacurrate info.  My money's on the info being off.
Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

My money is on them actually having been a group of Illuminati agents that got offed by some eldritch horror.

"The Dyatlov Pass Incident" sounds like the title to a Lovecraft story to me....
