Creepiest Unsolved Mysteries Of All Time – The Dyatlov Pass Mystery
On February 2, 1959, nine hikers died in extremely mysterious circumstances. After setting up camp for the night on the slopes of Kholat Syakhl, the hikers were found dead in very weird ways. For starters, their tents were torn from the inside-out, implying that they fled the campsite, which lead authorities to think they were attempting to escape an imminent threat. Some of them were found barefoot, despite the fact that there was heavy snowfall Dyatlov. The group’s leader, who the incident is named after, had injuries to his right fist that were congruent with those sustained in a fist fight. Another camper was found with brain damage despite no trauma to the skull. One female camper’s tongue was missing while another one of the hikers had a fractured skull. One of the campers had skull fractures that were so severe, medical experts believed he would not have been able to move in any way. Soviet authorities eventually determined that an “unknown compelling force” caused the deaths. Commonly accepted theories are an avalanche or a hostile encounter with some sort of beast.
