One of my questions that I've developed over time is, do we have a general idea of the order in which the Dyatlov party passed on?
I’ve always imagined they died in the order they were found. Doroshenko and Krivo died first. Members of the group moved the bodies and took some of their clothing.
Dyatlov next, as he, Zina, and Slobodin were all headed in the same general direction. Slobodin being better dressed was next then Zina.
They were all heading to the same place.
I suppose it’s possible that Zina died before Slobodin since he had the matches. If she had of still been alive she would have taken the matches from Slobodin.
As for the 4 at the Ravine, I think they survived a lot longer than initially suspected. Zolotaryov last to go since he was best dressed, found with compass, pen, notebook, and camera around his neck. He was resourceful and experienced. If this were a case of murder, I’ve wondered if he was able to go unnoticed by the aggressor/s up until his death.
