    The possibility of a crime has been completely discounted by the russian authorities

    Weren't the bodies with the extensive injuries found at the bottom of a ravine? Couldn't tumbling down a ravine possibly account for the injuries?

    And regarding the missing body parts - the bodies were left out in the elements for months. Couldn't decomposition, exposure to the elements and (apologies for the gross imagery here) animals chewing on the bodies account for missing body parts?

          I don't recall any of Scott's expedition stripping off, though I am aware that shortly before dying people with extreme frostbite will feel their body temperature rise dramatically. Whether this is psychological or physical I don't know.

              The bodies of Wilson and Bowers were discovered tightly wrapped in their sleeping bags. The flaps of Scottís bag were thrown back and his coat was open.

                this is what probably happened:

                they had deviated from there intended path and ended up higher on the mountain slope than they wanted. it was more exposed then a big snowstorm. in the middle of the night the snow/wind/frost/ice had built up so much that the tent collapsed (no avalanche-but they might have feared one). they couldn't get out the opening (maybe it was covered with snow and or frozen shut), panic sets in-so they cut there way out and made it down to the tree line. tried to make a fire. by this time it was so cold some were probably already dying. some tried to make it back to the collapsed tent but died of hypothermia. the ones at the fire died of cold too. the remaining tried to make it further down into the forest to find better shelter/ campsite and fell into the ravine-hitting rocks and died-hence the injuries. the ones that had injuries/missing eyes/tongue etc were probably predated on and or the soft tissues rotted away. not that big of a mystery really. to me anyway.

                    This sums up my feelings as well.

                    A tragic mixture of panic and extreme conditions.

                        I saw a documentary which suggested that infrasound could explain some of the reports of paranormal activity on the London Underground. Apparently it sets up feelings of unease, imagined glimpses out of the corner of the eye, etc.

                          I always thought that feeling of unease emanated from the three lads loitering on the platform, wearing leather jackets and neck tattoos.

                            Ah Roger, you've been listening to this song about a young man's encounter with a group of ticket inspectors.

                              Thanks, Robert. That song sums it up! (And nice bass playing).

                                The tent didn't collapse. It was still standing when rescuers reached the scene.
