Boris Akunin Wants to Solve Mystery of Deadmen's Mountain

Writer Boris Akunin famous for his detective novels is going to solve the mystery of the Dyatlov Passage, where 9 Ural students perished under strange circumstances in 1959.
      Some of the points from the story of the Deadmen's Mountain (Dyatlov's Passage) will become part of one of his books.
      A few days ago Akunin suggested the readers of his blog to select the most intriguing mystery of the unsolved ones, and promised to offer his own version as the solution and possibly even to describe it in his book. So, majority voted for this sinister subject.
      It is a reminder that on January 23, 1959 a group of students headed by the skilled tourist Igor Dyatlov went skiing across Sverdlovsk Region.
      On February 26 searchers found on a mountain slope the group's empty tent with its wall cut from inside, and keeping all the equipment, outer clothing and footwear of the lost travelers. Next day the first dead bodies were found. Some of them had died of freezing, some had suffered craniocereberal traumas, and one of the girls had her tongue cut off.
