In 1959 nine experienced hikers went missing in the snowy Ural Mountains of the Soviet Union. Over the course of the next several months, each hiker's body was discovered, most of which were one-by-one. With each discovery, the mystery weaved itself tighter and tighter around unexplained and terrifying. First it was discovered their tent was cut from the inside indicating something had scared them out into the arctic night. One had bone fractures. Another was missing its tongue and eyes. At the time, Soviet authorities determined that a portion of the group had died from an "unknown compelling force," and 60 years later, despite a number of theories, we're nowhere closer to solving this unexplainable mystery... until now.

On part I, we'll break down the story and next week we'll cover some theories. Beer review by Oisin.
