A tantalizing find made at Russia's Dyatlov Pass may shed light on the mystery of what killed nine hikers at the site. Located in the Ural Mountains, the remote patch of wilderness became infamous in paranormal lore after a 1959 incident which saw a hiking party perish under bizarre circumstances. Despite a contemporaneous investigation by Russian officials and subsequent decades of study from independent researchers, the cause of the strange event has never been fully determined.
However, a discovery made by a tourist visiting the area could either constitute a break in the case or yet another glimmer of false hope for those who wish the see the mystery resolved. The unnamed individual reportedly stumbled upon an intriguing piece of metal while visiting the area back in 2008. Remarkably, the find was only recently confirmed after an expedition finally made their way out to the specific location to both see the object for themselves and to bring it back to civilization to be studied.
