Aleks Kandr's main starting hypothesis which can be considered as the answer to the question "WHO? "question about DPI is :
WHO = a few perverted guardians - or former guardians - of the Ivdellag Gulag camps located in the Vizhay region.
Consequently, the objections to the arguments of the supporters of "Murdered" or "Altercation on the pass", i.e. Per Inge Oestmoen
, Eduard Tumanov
....almost completely disappear.
I have admitted Aleks Kandr
's conjecture - under the name of "my hypothesis N°3" - because, with simple reasoning, this conjecture on "WHO" allows us to give a simple answer to each of the very many questions that arise about DPI.
Obviously - there is not - and there will not be - absolutely irrefutable evidence, but the point here is to find the most probable and complete explanation which, at least, verifies Occam's razor principle.
I therefore suggest reading Aleks Kandr's arguments
- which is rather (very) long - and also studying the history of the USSR during the period 1953-1964, which is also called Khrushchev's Thaw. http://mystery12home.ru/t-ub-gr-dyatlova https://taina.li/forum/index.php?topic=14852.0 https://taina.li/forum/index.php?topic=1002.0 https://taina.li/forum/index.php?topic=12235.0
Note : I am not sure that I have correctly understood all of Aleks Kandr's arguments because he writes in Russian while I do not even know the Cyrillic alphabet !
....big questions: 1. Was the investigation opened on February. 6, meaning the bodies had already been discovered ? ......
On February 6, 1959, the corpses are not discovered but the KGB is aware of the death of the hickers, because the killers have already confessed the result of their attack during the night of February 1 to 2.
More precisely, I propose a sequence of events that looks like this:
The attackers left on February 1st around 7 am from their North-2 base in pursuit of the hickers, easily following the tracks left by the 9 skiers.
••• 10 hours to go from North-2 to the tent; consequently
February 1st, 5 pm : the tent, being set up, is in sight of the attackers who stop and watch from afar without being noticed by the hikers.
February 1st, between 8 pm and 9 pm : attack triggering.
••• Numerous episodes in what can be described as night combat without firearms.
February 2nd, between 3 am and 8 am: end of the fights with victory of the attackers.
••• 9 hours to go from the tent to North-2 following the itinerary of February 1st; consequently
February 2nd around 7 pm: Attackers return to their North-2 base.
February 3 : The attackers returned home to the Vizhay region.
••• But the attackers cannot hide the suspicious
ecchymoses and bruises that are very visible on their faces, (some hickers had hard fists and hit strong);
••• therefore, the attackers are not able to hide them.
••• The attackers are denounced to the authorities; consequently
February 4: The attackers are immediately arrested at home by the KGB, who immediately begin interrogating them.
••• The KGB has "effective" methods for interrogating suspects, especially when it is in a hurry; consequently
February 5: The attackers confess to most of the events of the night of February 1 to 2.
••• The KGB is well organized and avoids unnecessary expenses.
The KGB does not need either to have immediately additional details or to go to the pass to understand the mainlines
- compromising for the Khrushchev regime - of the situation; consequently, the KGB does not need to have any further details.
February 6: The investigations are officially open but without number (in anticipation of the foreseeable cover-up).
February: Khrushchev himself, with the agreement of his entire government, confirms the order to keep the identity of the culprits secret.
(for in 1959 they are still - or were recently - rogue officials of the USSR).
Later (May 1959): The attackers are discreetly shot and buried.
Much later (2020): Putin confirms the maintenance of secrecy.
Of course there are still thousands of other questions that arise to be able to fully explain the DPI, here is for example an excellent lead found by Mishka :Mishka

".....they heard some people arrived .................they were asked to leave the tent immediately because the place was in danger..."

The hurried exit from the tent, without the axes in hand, can be explained by trickery and deception.
(ruse of war - like Troyan Horse).Without threats, nor violence
, but on the contrary with many kind and compassionate words
