Yeah, we all have our theories and it's no different than anybody else...
The TENT is where it all started, we agree on that?
NINE people. All dead, We agree on that?
Facts are facts, we agree on that?
Everybody was hanging out in that tent. There is talk that two were running around outside, but does that matter? All died. We agree on that?
What we can also agree on is that something happened at that tent. That is where everyone there went haywire, agreed?
Okay... So what ACTUALLY happened there?
Let's REMOVE the paranormal because that is NOT provable. We can disagree with that, but let's just PRETEND that the BIGFOOT, the YETI, The Loch Ness Monster Aliens or Elvis DID NOT go in there and do some damage, scare people who generally don't scare easily, and monsters who eat peoples tongues and suck out their eyeballs don't really exist. Agreed?
Something happened to these nine people, who are, granted, young... but have better sense than most of us do with hiking and skiing than we do. They have been trekking these areas for a good amount of time and know their stuff, Agreed?
They placed their tent on a grade that would NOT create a problem with an avalanche. At that grade, IF an avalanche were to happen they would have never heard it anyway. Why was the tent STILL there? Unbroken with BOTH poles STILL planted and straight up to the sky? They were not stupid, that grade would NEVER create an avalanche and everybody knows it.
When the tent was found, most of their clothes were removed to dry out from the sweat. They were safe and DINNER was on the floor for everyone to eat. When the investigators showed up, dinner was STILL there on the floor, along with their boots, socks, warm clothes, etc... so they had to leave quick, agreed?
They were in such a panic, they cut holes in the side of the tent, but obvious is obvious... THEY DID NOT RUN once outside of the tent. They did NOT run down the hill as some may propose. THEY WALKED.
That's right. THEY WALKED down to the valley... 1 mile in the snow, no boots, no warm clothes, many with just socks, some without socks. WHY???
What in the world would make them do that? Even though the tracks (1 month old) showed that it WAS NOT SINGLE FILE but they marched down side by side, and why???
How do we know they didn't run down there? because running v/s walking have different tracks. It's undeniable. Pics prove it.
Now you name a sasquatch that will force them to do that. You name an alien that would do that. They walked down there calmly.
Think about it. If they were scared they would have run like crazy!
I will propose a timeline... WITHOUT names... you can fill in the blanks, Okay?
Back up at the tent, they got beaten up pretty bad. So much in fact that many had injuries that not taken care of within 48 hours, many would indeed DIE.
This is where I begin to disagree. I really don’t think anyone who might have been injured would make it a mile (give or take) down the hill in the snow, in the frigid temperatures with the wind.
Marched down the hill toward the valley, the attackers figured their job was done and the cold weather would do them in. BUT...
They all got together at the cedar tree and started a fire. The attackers doubled back to finish the job, but could not get there fast enough to stop them from splitting up.
The worst of the party, two men were left under the cedar tree. They traded clothes to allow TWO parties to go out and find help and stay warm. The two at the cedar tree with the fire will stay warm.
And here - I don’t think anyone believed, even for a second, they could find help. In fact, I bet they knew their odds were better staying together.
The attackers came back and took out the two at the cedar tree. Still alive, but beaten so bad, they will die. Same with the four at the den. They caught up with them and did the same. The last three, they were trying to get back to the tent for flashlights and warm clothes... and died along the way.
Not many at the tree had injuries associated with being brutally attacked.
Each were doomed with their injuries but hypothermia set in before death.
The question is, who were the attackers? Why do this? Who ordered this, if anybody?
This isn't about wind. This isn't about aliens, sasquatch, nor weird sounds to mess up peoples brains nor magic mushrooms, alcohol nor even a silly fight over a cute girl.
Although you may disagree with some, part or ALL of the story, something happened and the Russians DO want this to go away.
Thanks for listening.
You are now required to post any other theories but I do ask that you keep them plain and simple. Tin-foil hat theories should keep to a bare minimum for I fear you may be made fun of.
Again, Thank you!
I vacillate between theories. At the moment, I and thinking through an attack theory. I started by thinking about an internal disagreement, but I just can’t come up with anything that makes sense with the known evidence. I dunno, maybe Mansi. I’m still pondering the possibilities.
