On episode 135 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we take a trip to Russia to bring you a story so mysterious and so tragic, that it remains one of the most controversial unsolved cases in history.
On February 2nd, 1959, nine highly experienced members of the Ural Polytechnical Institute set off on a challenging trek through the Ural mountains with their leader, Igor Dyatlov. But something happened in the middle of the night that caused the group to rip their tent open from the inside and wander through the frozen tundra.
Three weeks later, five bodies were found. After two months, the remaining bodies were also discovered. As tragic as this was, how each body was found, and several pieces of evidence that would be discovered, left many more questions than answers as to what happened and why. We break down the timeline, string of possible events, and numerous theories as to what may have happened to the Dyatlov nine that fateful night.
This episode is dedicated to the memory of the Dyatlov crew, including Yuri Yudin, the only surviving member, who passed away in 2013.
