They quite simply died of hypothermia after their tent was destroyed in some freak weather event. Because of the way that works people actually paradoxically feel hot as they're dying and sometimes rip off their clothes, not knowing what they're doing.

Of course that doesn't explain the radioactivity at the site, or the missing tongue and eyes. I guess unless we get to ask the UFO yetis what happened we'll never know.

I don't believe the tent was destroyed. They found it standing with many of their items still inside. If your tent gets ruined you don't run into the snow with no boots on any way.

I saw the Dupont de Ligonnès murders briefly mentioned in the thread about the "Unsolved Mysteries" reboot and wanted to ask what you think of it.

Can't say I've read much more than the Wikipedia article, but that was already an intriguing read. I intended to condense the whole thing here but I think I can't actually make it much shorter than it already is, so here's only a rough outline.

TLDR: In 2011 an engineer of French nobility, Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès (*1961), from Nantes kills his wife Agnès and her four children (3 of which he fathered) and disappears.
But is that it? The family seems on mostly good terms, although the wife is apparently a very devout catholic but weirdly mentions that "group death as a family" might not be so bad on a forum some time before it all goes down. The family tell people Xavier's new job requires them to move to Australia. Multiple people claim to have seen Agnès after the day she was killed according to the autopsy. A typewritten letter claims he worked for the DEA and they're now under witness protection in the US, again urging relatives to say they're actually in Australia. Apparently those same relatives are not asked to identify the bodies. At some point it's alleged that Xavier might be hiding in a monastery and according to Wikipedia:
"administrators of a Catholic website, classified as fundamentalist by the episcopacy, confirmed that Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès was a member of their forum, where in 2010 he asked about the meaning of "sacrifice" and he recently became "aggressive"". […] He was eventually banned from the forum. According to a source close to Xavier, he "never set foot inside a church".

Apparently he also had a business associate in Florida who pretty much seems to offshore money for clients.
A body is found close to his last confirmed location in 2013 but apparently they can't tell if it's his.

His professional life is a big :?:, I guess that's where the best evidence would be.

Speaking of the Dyatlov Pass, there was some rather humorous news that has come out about it recently. Using the snow physics from the movie Frozen, investigators have come back to the most plausible theory being that it was indeed an avalanche that killed them.

Tl;dr: The area the hikers were staying on was slanted, and that along with the weather conditions at the time could have caused an avalanche just big enough to traumatically injure them, but not fatally kill them, at least not right away. Then, dazed, confused, hurt, trapped, panicked, and fumbling around in the dark, and cold, the hikers cut themselves out of their tents, and the more able-bodied ones tried to drag their more critically injured friends to a safety before they eventually all just died of hypothermia.

The radiation foundation found on some of them was most likely just from their thorium lanterns, and their missing tongues, eyes, etc., were probably just the result of scavengers, but the article does say that particular part is still in question.

Here's another one that's not "unsolved," but rivals the Furuta and Likens cases in terms of the sheer, subhuman cruelty involved. Funny that this incident, which occurred in 1962 California, is so obscure. And check out the wrist-slapping the murderer got from the court!

Back to unsolved cases: the disappearance of Ohio State medical student Brian Shaeffer in the midst of a crowded bar under the surveillance of security cameras, is a weird one.
wtf "I want to destroy her beauty"
despite her being your own fucking trophy wife????
.... First documented case of Hungarian troonery???

First may be just bullshit, added to make this story seem more supernatural or already mentioned radiation from lab. Second - wild animals eat tender exposed parts that they can smell first. Since they were already dead and frozen, there was no blood.

The problem with all these stories, that they are basically a game of broken phone - no one looks into them further and people just repeat "this is impossible to explain". I mean, do you remember that Markovian something Parallax? That bot/spy that supposedly spammed the half of Usenet with gibberish back in the day? This is exactly what's been happening here for decades.

Every now and again someone puts a Markov chain on social media and conspiracy folks pick up on it.
Like the "haunted" Facebook account of Karin Catherine Waldegrave that keeps making the rounds of mystery subreddits.

The original bot was written in 1984 by Rob Pike, one of the developers of the Go programming language.
Other quotations from Mark's Usenet posts are:[2]
  • "I spent an interesting evening recently with a grain of salt." (Alternatively reported as "While at a conference a few weeks back, I spent an interesting evening with a grain of salt."[3][4])
  • "I hope that there are sour apples in every bushel."[5]

Yeah, but in that case it was probably just some troll who decided to fuck with a couple of christian Usenet groups, the scale was that insignificant.

This case gives me the creeps (mostly due to the suspect drawing but god). The unsolved serial child rapist Mr Cruel who raped three girls from the late 1980s to early 1990's in Melbourne, Australia. He also kidnapped and murder a fourth victim. He is suspected to be involved in more abduction cases and a couple of cold cases as well.

The only remaining bit of fuckery is the elevator video being edited. Nobody seems to know when, who, or why. But I don't think that's enough on its own to call conspiracy. The police investigator said he saw the original, unedited video on the hotel security system, and I don't really see any reason to doubt it.
Sometimes police will edit video before it's sent out to the public if there was another guest or an employee on the video who had been cleared of any wrongdoing.

One Unsolved mystery for me. Is no joke Kelsey Grammer's curse. The guy legit has lost ton of family members in horrifying ways. He was a alcoholic for a long time because of it. Like seriously that man is curse in someway.

Also Walt Disney ghost in Disney land. No one can explain the light showing up in his old apartment there he use to stay in alot.

Take this with a grain of salt, but someone did come out a few years saying that Karin was their aunt, and that had she just had schizophrenia. I can't seem to find the post now, but if it is true, it would definitely explain a few things.

Double-posting, but Nexpo did a video on the Yuba County Five.
Tl;dr: He majorly glosses over just how mentally-challenged the men were in favor of making everything more "mysterious", and uses annoying, and tasteless edits edits to make the video more "scary". He theorizes that Gary Mathias, the schizophrenic man who is the only to this day still unaccounted for, is also dead, and died out there in the wilderness, and the only reason we haven't found his body is because his remains have been scattered by animals.

Granger Taylor was an eccentric mechanical savant living in Duncan B.C. At 12 he built a car from scratch. He went on to rebuild a train he found in the woods after dragging the pieces out by himself, one by one. He continued to rebuild a Kittyhawk, and made a (obviously unworking) flying saucer. He also did a metric shit ton of acid. By 1980, when Granger was 32, he told friends that he was in communication with aliens. One night he disappeared in his truck after leaving a note to his parents that he was off to travel the stars.

His parents continued to leave the back door unlocked and his room as is until they died iirc.

Now for the less mysterious part, 6 years later they found his truck. It was located on Mount Prevost, which itself is known for supernatural events. The truck was found near a small blast area, which makes sense since he often carried dynamite for removing stumps. A few bone fragments were found, but they have never been DNA tested to prove they are his. His family also insists that he wouldn't have blown himself up (accidentally or otherwise).

There's an episode of Expedition Unknown that covers a lot of this.

Two of the students worked at nuclear facility at their college.

Tongues and eyes are the first thing wild animals eat.

But one of the interesting facts that came about is the wife of the prosecutor who was sent out there to investigate found among her husbands papers a letter requesting his assistance that was dated nearly 3 weeks before the official date of the incident.

It's an all around great episode but it really drives home just how remote this place was. These guys are struggling getting out there with modern gear and snow mobiles and the students had none of those things.

IDK. Maybe the Lady In The Dunes Case. So, in 1974, in Provincetown, Massachusetts... There was a lady found in a ditch with an almost entirely decapitated head and lobbed off wrists. The murderer put a blue bandanna (Important) which her head had been laying on. It's also important to note that her face had been bashed in, to the point where she was unrecognizable. Right beside her corpse lay a folded pair of wrangler jeans. The body had been deposing for days, possibly even weeks; her killer and her identities have still yet to be confirmed. Scientists have made a 3d mock up of what she may have looked like, along with sketches. See below.

Some have theorized that she was an extra in the hit movie, Jaws. The film had been shot throughout 1974 and released in 1975. So I guess this could fit, but I still doubt it. People have made connections with the Lady and the extra in the movie, such as the blue bandanna, the jeans and the long hair. The body had also been found fairly close to the film set, about 100 miles a way from the shooting location. Never the less, the case has still yet to be unsolved. Although the authorities have been expressed interest in the theory. Sorry if someone else posted this already.

I have a mild interest in these kind of cases and for some reason one in particular always stick in my memory. The Johnny Gosch case, or "Why Johnny can't come home".

Johnny Gosch, a paper boy in Iowa who disappeared and presumed to be kidnapped on the morning of September 5, 1982. He had been missing for 38 years.
A few months after his disappearance, there was a report of a young boy claiming he's Johnny and screaming for help in Oklahoma before being dragged away by two unknown man. Even though it was never confirmed, the mother believed it was her son. The trail ran cold for another 15 years.
March 1997, according to Noreen Gosch, Johnny's mother, she claimed she was visited by two man, one of them was Johnny, now a 27 years old man. Noreen was confident it was her son due to recognize the birthmark on his chest. She claimed that he didn't say where he is living or where he was going, instead telling her that he had been the victim of a pedophile organization but had escaped and now feared for his life. Johnny and the man left, and Noreen never heard from her son again after that. Whether it was really Johnny or some very well researched cruel joke, or even Noreen delirium and imagined the whole thing, no one can tell.
In 2000, Noreen published a book titled "Why Johnny Can't Come Home", detailing the case and her son visit, as well as condemned the slow reaction of the authorities, as Johnny cannot be declared missing until at least 72 hours passed.
On September 1, 2006, Noreen found photographs left at her front door, some of which she posted on her website. One color photo shows three boys bound and gagged. A black and white photo show someone she claimed to be a young Johnny also bound and gagged, with a brand on his shoulder. She notified the authorities. On September 13, an anonymous letter arrived claimed that it was a reprehensible joke, and that the photo in question is not of her son, but three boys in Tampa, Florida about 1979–80, challenging each other to an escape contest. There was an investigation concerning that picture, made by the Hillsborough County (FL) Sheriff's Office. No charges were filed, and no wrongdoing was established. The lead detective on the case was Nelson Zalva, and he confirmed that the letter was telling the truth. The kids were interview, and there was no evidence of coercing. However, while the three to be in the color picture were identified, the one thought to be Johnny were not. Noreen still believed it was her son. More pictures would arrived, some of them proved to be elaborated fakes from horror movies, while some of them were still unidentified. I believe Noreen continues to post them on her website in hope someone with new information would come forward. The case remains open until today, but considered cold.
