People familiar with the theme of the Dyatlov Pass do not need to be convinced that the events there are mysterious and, after more than fifty years, they are practically not susceptible to investigation. The investigation materials, laid out in full in open access, cannot do anything to help; moreover, even a superficial acquaintance with these materials raises a lot of questions and even more confuses the search for truth.
To match the events on the pass, the consequence is also full of mysteries. These man-made riddles were suggested to us by specific people, investigators, it seems that they knew much more than was reflected in the materials of the investigation. To prove this, we will look for additional indirect data about events on the pass from the investigation process itself and eyewitness recollections.
Not only actual materials are eloquent, but also how they are presented in an official document. No less important is not the availability of the document, but its absence, much can clarify and discrepancies in the documents. So let's try to understand from this point of view what is being hidden from us. This is not an idle interest, in the context of the events, a veil of secrecy, the actual circumstances of the events on the Dyatlov Pass are hidden.
Retouching or tagging?
In the investigation materials there are photographs with obvious traces of retouching, these are not random “blots”, they have a clear logic, here’s a vivid example, two photographs from the investigation materials, Slobodin’s body was taken at different points of view:
In the pictures of the body a black rectangle is seen in the lumbar region, in both photos in the same place. That we won’t guess, we just state the fact, in the materials of the investigation there are photos with hidden areas on the clothes.
This is not the only example, there are photos with a more mysterious retouching, here are two photos of the body of Dubinina, photos appear to have been taken from the same negative, but they are different, see for yourself:
There is a dark spot on the body picture, in the lumbar region, this spot is reflected in the investigation materials, and in the examination report of the body it was stated that the damage on the back was made by the probe probe. So the spot in the picture is not an accidental defect.
And here is the second shot from the same negative:
In this picture from the same negative there is no damage to the back.
In the case of Slobodin’s body, we don’t know what is hidden under the retouching; in the case of Dubinina’s body, we know for sure that there was damage in this place (recorded in the body detection protocol).
As a hypothesis, knowing the investigator’s specific attitude towards investigating events on the pass, it can be assumed that the investigator did not conceal on these retouched sites, but on the contrary, drew attention to the places on the bodies, which could help to understand real events.
It is possible that the photos of the bodies of Slobodin and Dubinina were not intentionally retouched, these are marks of places to which the investigator had heightened attention, he marked them so that they called for “their own use”.
However, it is not the motive of the appearance of spots that is important, but the fact that there were areas under them requiring special attention when investigating what happened.
Already mentioned was the protocol of the inspection of the body of Dubinina at the scene, signed by the prosecutor Tempelov, here is an excerpt from it:
On the back of the head and on the back there are traces of damage by the probe from the words of Mr. V. Askinadze, who recognized Dubinin.
So, two injuries of Dubinina’s body are recorded in a protocol drawn up at the scene, but in the CourtMedExpertise Act, signed by the expert Reborn on the back and neck of the body, the injuries are not indicated at all.
It turns out that the Court MedExpert did not see what the prosecutor and the witnesses saw who signed the protocol. Why he chose not to notice these injuries can be explained only by one thing, I would have to describe them in order to point out that the damage on his back is a very specific intravital injury.
A bold statement, I do not argue, we need additional facts to translate it into the area of the proven circumstances of Dubinina’s death, and they exist.
There is another photo of Dubinina’s body, which also confirms the presence of damage on the back, not only of the clothing, but also of the body itself, here it is, albeit of very poor quality:
In the photo, the body of Dubinina after extraction from the stream and drawing up an examination report, it is clear that the clothes are pulled up on the back in the area of damage and there is a dark spot on the skin. Apparently this is a bruise, but then this damage is lifetime, the bruise of a search probe cannot form a bruise of a body that has lain for four months.
Next is Tibo's body, look at the characteristic bend of the hand, a notebook was clamped in it, but more on that later.
In addition to the damage to the body Dubinina there is evidence of an eyewitness, a search engine (student Askinadzi) who discovered the body Dubinina claimed that he damaged the body only in the neck, here are his words:
... ... These events were before lunch, and after I took one probe, and the rest watched (not because they did not want to work, but agreed, just to do, as in geology, a test pit). It was then that I hit the neck of Luda.
So it can be reasonably argued that the damage on Dubinina’s back was in his lifetime. But this is not enough to make the fact of the presence of lifetime damage on his back with secret information; on Dubinina’s body, several lifetime injuries incompatible with life were discovered; no one tried to hide them.
The only reason for the mystery in this particular case can only be the nature of a lifetime injury, either a knife (bayonet) channel or a bullet channel.
In this case, when the deliberate nature of Dubinina’s death became apparent, it made sense to conceal the fact of injury on his back.
In the investigation materials there is no document describing the state of the last three bodies of tourists, in other words, the state of the three bodies is not fixed at the scene. This has already led to a lot of speculation about a camera and a notebook found on the bodies of Zolotaryov and Tibo.
First, we know about the notebook, from the words of the Askinadzi search engine, that a notebook and a pencil were found in the hands of the body with two clocks. At the time of extraction, this body was mistakenly identified as Zolotaryov’s body, but on the basis of the CourtMedExpertise act we know that two watches were on Nikolay Thibault’s hand. There is no reason to doubt the testimony of an eyewitness to the events, so there was a notebook, not only Zolotarev, but Tibo.
You can see it in this picture, the place is highlighted:
It can be seen that a dark rectangular object is clamped in the palm of the right hand (only the edge is visible), apparently this is the notorious notebook.
It was clear why the bodies were mistaken in identifying bodies at the scene of events, none of the search engines of the victims personally knew, the bodies were badly damaged and identification was made only on the basis of a verbal description.
The fate of this notebook is unknown, there is no official mention of it.
You can talk about the fifth camera by focusing on a photograph of the body taken from the stream, you can see camera toli on the chest, toli leather case from the camera. Here is this snapshot:
But in the act SudMedExpertiza Zolotarev body at this place indicated the presence of a protective mask, it is impossible to confuse a cloth mask with a camera, the picture is quite clear.
In the existence of the fifth camera, there is almost no doubt he was. Evidence of this is in the materials of the investigation, the fact is that officially four cameras were found in a tent. A month after the investigation was completed, the cameras and watches were handed over to the relatives of the victims, about which receipts were made.
There are documents for the transfer of four cameras to the relatives of the deceased tourists, these are Kolevatov, Slobodin, Zolotarev, Dyatlov.
But it is authentically known that another camera was with Nikolai Tibo, the investigator Ivanov returned only his watch to his relatives, but he did not return the camera, arguing that it had strong radiation.
This receipt, Tibo's camera is not mentioned in it, only hours and photos were transmitted:
So it can be argued that Zolotarev was discovered with a camera belonging to Nikolai Tibo, the fate of this physical evidence is unknown.
Let me remind you once again that there are no documents on the examination of the last three bodies in the investigation materials, although according to the Code of Criminal Procedure there must be such a document, and this was what the witness said:
... ..we saw it in a state of extreme tension and nervousness. Moreover, we saw them in a very short time. They pulled out of the stream, wrapped them in sleeping bags from sleeping bags and special bags that the pilots brought, signed the act quickly, and the corpses flew away.
Consequently, after extracting the last bodies, the protocol was signed, and this is not the document that was made by the prosecutor Tempelov, since it indicated that the last three bodies had not yet been extracted from the stream.
But this most important protocol for examining the last three bodies did not get into the investigation materials.
And now let's see how the above reasoning agrees with the official materials of the investigation, here is a selection of scans:
The first scan is a list of documents in the case, the 75 and 76 numbers indicate different documents, apparently the second document under the 76 number is the “lost” protocol for examining the last bodies, but instead it is inserted into the handwritten version of the document under the 75 number. As they say, comments are superfluous ...
And one more discrepancy, here's the decision to dismiss the case, which investigator Ivanov tried to “push through”, mentioning the radioactive contamination of things:
What remnants of Krivonishchenko’s trousers on Dubinina’s leg are we talking about? What we don't know yet?
According to the act SudMedExpertiza on the body Dubinina found:
And according to the protocol of the body survey at the place of detection at Dubinina, there were:
So there are three versions at once, on the leg of Dubinina there is a winding from Coedy trousers, a piece of jacket, a piece of sweater.
And this is all in the materials of one investigative case on the only but very important circumstance .... And besides this, on Dubinina’s body, on the spot where she found two toes on her left leg, the presence of a winding on her right leg was also indicated there.
And in the act of Sudmedekspertiza five socks and a winding on the left foot are indicated at once.
It is still possible to confuse the right foot with the left, but it is impossible to make a mistake with the number of socks, everyone can count to five. It means that after the removal of the body from the scene and before the official examination of the body by the medical examiner, the Reborn has at least stripped the body, but put it back on the wrong way and confused the socks.
There is no protocol for this unknown strip-dressing in the case file.
There is another lost document, and it is also very important, the fact is that in the investigation materials there are no pictures of only one body at the place of detection, the Kolmogorov body. The picture was, it is known from the protocol, here is an excerpt:
Face in blood. On the back near the loins of the abrasion, bleed. It can be assumed that, according to the position of the body, Kolmogorov tried not to climb, uphill, but to stay in place. The corpse is photographed.
Of all the bodies found on the mountainside, it is Kolmogorov’s body that causes the most questions, because judging by the picture of her body in the morgue, and the verbal description in the protocol she died in a very characteristic pose, it is important to know how her body was located on the ground, this could clarify the cause of her death. The photograph must be “lost” in the investigation materials, but look, here is a snapshot from the archive of investigator Ivanov:
On the back of the picture there is an explanation that this is one of the bodies found on the slope, pictures on the area of the bodies of Dyatlov and Slobodin are in the public domain, there is a completely different landscape. This means that Kolmogorova’s body was under retouching, there were no other bodies on the slope of the 1079 height.
Someone retouched the body, the original image itself is not in the public domain, but it can be seen that the retouching was already done on the scanned image (beyond the boundaries of the image) ...
Apparently this is the picture of Kolmogorov’s body, which is referred to in the protocol, but instead of the investigative folders, he ended up in the investigator’s personal archive.
It turns out that even now someone is trying to "whiten" this historywhy and who needs it, where did the original picture go, why did the investigator value them so much?
There are two more shots that must be in the case file, but are in a private archive. These pictures are referenced by the investigation, justifying the installation time of the tent on the slope of height 1079, so that, according to the requirements of the Code of Criminal Procedure, they should be attached to the case file.
But they are not there, the same story as with a picture of Kolmogorov’s body, as a hypothesis, we can assume that these pictures were printed from negatives in several copies, those that were in the materials of the investigation "disappeared", and those that were kept by investigator Ivanov in the personal archive now we are studying.
Here are these mysterious pictures, it was made at intervals of no more than 10-15 seconds, from the same point, it is believed that the tourists on them clear a place under the tent at the last night.
Immediately test for intelligence, how many people can be counted in the pictures?
I counted seven people (marked with red markers); the three are clearly distinguishable, two skis in the background have changed position in these 10-15 seconds, so they are in the hands of two more people. One can see the hand of a man leaning on the snow near the backpack, and another hand with the ski stick in the background.
So, it turns out that seven people are clearing the slope, everything seems logical for the time being, seven men do the hard work, two girls stand by and shoot.
But then everything becomes incomprehensible, if you focus on the shadows, taking into account the time (evening), then this place should be located on the southwestern slope of the mountain.
But the tent is found on the northeast slope!
Here is an excerpt from the protocol:
The lodging place is located on the North-Eastern slope of the 1079 height in the headwaters of the Auspii River. The accommodation is located in 300 m. From the top of the mountain 1079 under the slope of the mountain 30 °.
So the place in the picture is not at all the place where the tent is found, besides this, the depth of the tent found by the search engines does not correspond to the hole that the tourists dug in the pictures, it has at least a meter of depth along the top edge.
Even focusing only on these two pictures, it can be said that the chronology of events was represented completely wrong by the result, there was at least one more night in the mountainous terrain, and it was the preparation for this night that was captured in the pictures.
Most likely because of a discrepancy in chronology and these photos were removed from the official materials of the investigation.
We will not blame investigator Ivanov for incompetence and the collapse of the case, quite the contrary, this person did everything he could to ensure that events on the pass were not forgotten, we should be grateful to him for having come so much factual material.
The investigator was “squeezed” by circumstances that significantly limited his capabilities and reduced his attempts to find the truth in the area of punishable amateur performance. Ivanov later talked about the pressure from the party functionaries and the prosecution authorities.
In spite of this, he managed to leave references to “glowing balls” in the investigation materials, carried out radiological examination at the level of amateur performances, tried to “push” radiation information into the decision to close the investigation.
But there seemed to be another unofficial control, which Ivanov never mentioned. This control was “lit up” only once, the search engine Askinadzi speaks about the presence of absolutely extraneous silent and attentively examining the place of people on the examination procedure of the last bodies….
Only by influencing a consequence of some secret force (KGB?) Can one explain the contradictory behavior of the investigator, who, on the one hand, showed obvious diligence in clarifying all the circumstances of the case, and on the other hand, say, streamlined, showed “negligence” at the stage of finding the last four bodies.
There is the only explanation for the variability of Ivanov’s behavior, where he had the opportunity to work independently, what is called “digging” the land, but where he was tightly controlled, he defiantly became an “extra”, and even a stranger noticed this.
So, the camera Zolotarev, a notebook in the hands of Tibo, the protocols of the real state of the bodies at the site of the offensive and surely much more fell into the hands of very different people.
The conclusion for me will formulate the witness
The search for Askinadzi describes the general mood of the investigation in the person of Prosecutor Tempelov and Investigator Ivanov, here are excerpts from his memoirs:
... ... In my opinion, Ivanov to the flooring and did not fit. From a distance I looked at the fir-trees without tops and went to the corpses. By the way, I noticed that Ivanov did not record anything, did not photograph anything. It seems that he is not interested, and he knows in advance the cause of death and what will happen next.
... ... Today it is already known that, for example, Ivanov confused this matter more (not on his own will) than he investigated. I think that he was only a pawn, providing basic information for more serious organizations. It was they who had complete information, including closed channels.
I have already spoken about the prosecutor. He did not record anything and did not photograph anything. All of his conclusions - cabinet fiction.
I have already spoken about the prosecutor. He did not record anything and did not photograph anything. All of his conclusions - cabinet fiction.
Therefore, there is no protocol for examining the last three bodies, the fate of the camera from Zolotarev’s body and the notebook from the hands of Nikolai Tibo is unknown.
At the same time, this explains the discrepancies in the protocols regarding the damage on the body of Dubinina, and the retouching and disappearance of photos from the official folders of the investigation.
Cause of death
Now it is possible to speculate a little over these riddles of the investigation. The investigator was attracted by certain areas on the bodies of Dubinina and Slobodin, two bodies with clothing damaged on the back and an incomprehensible trauma to the body under this injury.
All this looks like an exit bullet hole, but there is no inlet ..., this does not happen, mystic, aliens ...
And then there is Tibo's body with a notebook in his hand and a fractured skull and without damaged skin over the break point, this does not happen, again mysticism, again aliens ...
And these incomprehensible radioactive stains on the clothes of tourists, also mystic and again aliens ...
Apparently because of these inexplicable facts, investigator Ivanov believed that the cause of the event on the pass was a UFO.
The investigation did not know about the existence of such “bullets”:
These "bullets" have a diameter of one and a half millimeters and fly at a speed of 1400m / sec; they are not even arrows, but needles.
In the USSR, similar bullets were developed, in 1960, there is even a copyright certificate N 22527 with priority from 1 June 1960. Here's what they looked like:
If such a needle enters the human body, then the inlet will be practically indistinguishable, the outlet will become noticeable only if the needle is braked in the body, then it will lose stability and break into pieces.
Apparently it was precisely such exit holes that the investigators found on the bodies of Dubinina and Slobodin, but could not identify them with the types of rifle guns known at that time. weapons.
It is no secret that high-speed ammunition is made from uranium, so that radioactive stains found on tourists' clothes have their own logical explanation.
Naturally, it was not these needles that were used, which in photographs, in events on the pass, a more advanced technology was involved, but their operating principle was just that - the miniature dimensions are very high speed, the uranium core.
It is even hard for specialists to believe that miniature needles weighing less than a gram can cause fatal injuries to a person. Out of habit, everyone associates the damaging factor of a bullet with mechanical damage to the body, but at speeds greater than 1400 m / s (maximum speed of sound propagation in the human body) the shock wave inside the body becomes the main damaging factor, in fact a person dies from a "shake" - a contusion.
In this case, the geometric dimensions of the "bullet" are absolutely not important, it is important that the bullet moves in the body at a speed higher than the speed of sound propagation.
Such a shock wave inside the body is capable of breaking bones and, oddly enough, it sounds, to stop a wristwatch ...
And one more peculiarity of this needle, no matter where it gets, even to the finger, a person will still receive a deadly contusion, the fact is that in liquid and solid bodies the shock wave is transmitted almost without weakening the entire volume of the body.
This is physics, as they say, “nothing personal” ...
But while the hypothesis is only about the assumption that a high-speed miniature bullet is used, the following material in this series of articles will be devoted to confirming this statement in more detail with the circumstances of each tourist’s death.
