This incident led to death of a Deputy U.S. Marshal and two of Randy Weaver’s family members.

  • The mysterious deaths of nine Russian students on a skiing trip to the Ural mountains lacks an easy explanation.
  • Only a few cases are more bizarre or stranger than the Dyatlov Pass Incident of 1959.
