Hello. I'm brand new. A few years ago, I saw some little blurb about these mysterious deaths, but, didn't give it much thought. Then, saw something about it, and looked it up, which lead me to purchasing the book, "Dead Mountain" by Donnie Eichar, and doing lots and lots of looking up as much as I can that my computer will let me. This brings me to the point. While looking at all the information, there is another author, Keith McCloskey, I think, who wrote a book and has a website. This is pretty interesting and fit the mystery of the death, and WHY, for the love of Pete, the hikers left their tents, why some of the hikers had skull fractures and weird things wrong with them that would suggest beatings. On the website, he has all the reasons why the hikers died, sort of like what is on here. A psychic medium, bought his book, looked at the pictures of some of the hikers, and then did a thing where she contacted them. Lyuda was the main speaker. She said they were attacked by some men who had spears that were jabbing and stabbing their tent---hence, the strange holes. She said they were sticking their spears through the tent at them because they were angry that they were there. Someone, who was in the front of the tent was grabbed and thrashed over, and they forced all of them out of the tent and forced them to walk down the hill. I guess some of the men tried to fight them, and that's why they have the wounds they have. Rustem said they killed him. Zina said she was frozen. Lyuda said they killed her. I can't remember what the other ones said, but, she didn't talk to Kolevatov and Zolotaryov, only because the pictures of them were blurry, which I didn't understand. The men, who were sort of a tribe that lived on the mountain and they kept telling the hikers, they didn't belong there, and that's why they killed them. Makes sense to me and explains a lot of things. I'm sure there will be others who don't agree, but, to me, this answers a LOT of the questions of why in the heck, they all ran out not fully dressed for the weather.
