All the deaths are consistent with exposure and hypothermia. The avalanche theory varies from snow slide to slip of a small amount of snow. Not some tidal wave of endless amount of snow.
I interpret it to being the reason of leaving the tent. All injuries occurred after the exit of the tent, whether that be physical attack, environment , Wolverine . I struggle to get my head round the logistics of murder of 9 people. There's easier ways to do it. Plus , I've said before and I'll say it again. An organised/ planned murder would not leave any film from cameras behind. If one is trained in killing and on a mission, you take away all potential from being found.
If it was murder it's not premeditated in my opinion. It's sloppy.
The many injuries cannot be explained by accidents, and since there were injuries that were either directly lethal or lethal in combination with exposure it is fully conceivable that the killers orchestrated their cruel mission precisely in such a way as to make it look like an accident.
There are clearly easier ways to kill nine people, but there is hardly any more intelligent method than to do it in such a way as was in all probability done: Chase the victims out from their tent and let the cold do the job. Had the temperature been a little lower, it would have been a perfect mission. Since the victims did not die as fast as planned, the killing squad had to expedite the outcome. Hence the injuries.
There was no sign of an avalanche in the area, and the injuries are of course not consistent with such a natural phenomenon.
I don't entirely disagree, but I think we have to look at all possibilities. It's three weeks before they found the tent, I think there may be some argument that there was a small localised snow slip / slide that may have given the impression to the dp9 that worse was to come. Enough for them to leave perhaps?
If the last photos of them digging the trench for pitching the tent is accurate, then the spoil of the snow that they dug out, which would be roughly 2m x 5 m is not existant in the search photos. Maybe the wind errouded this pile of snow?. There would be no sign of an avalanche as we think it to be in our heads.
I agree about the fact there's easier ways to kill , if it was planned that is, but I think it would have been cold enough for them to die as they did without additional equipment.
The main injuries sustained are a possibility from the cold and a collapse of a snow cave/ bank/ weight of snow on the ravine 4.
I maybe thinking wrong , but we have 4 bodies under 3-4 meters of snow , these bodies are at ground level so the 3-4 meters of snow got on top of them some how.
We have the two Yuri's by the ceder and fire, they have burns and there are burnt clothing reported.
I don't know how to argue the point and I'll repeat, I don't rule out outsiders , I would rather rule out natural possibilities, then consider outsiders. As you suggest, it's an odd way to kill people.
