Nine Russian Hikers Found Dead (February 26, 1959)
Nine experienced Russian hikers found dead in the Urals...with some unnatural injuries.

I’d love to open up a dialogue about the cause of this accident in the forums. I’ll start a topic in a bit and I hope you all will join me! The forums are a great way to leave me feedback, as well! Go ahead and drop by!

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!

As always, Happy Birthday to those of you born this week! You’re in great company!

Have a great week! Remember! March 1 marks the anniversary of the Lindberg baby kidnapping. I’ll have an article up recounting the story and the trial(s) that followed. In the meantime, swing by the Crime site and check out how you can prevent crimes against children in your area!

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
