Rus­sia’s Yuba County 5

Real Crime - - Mystery Of The Yuba County 5 -

in 1959 nine stu­dents went hik­ing in Rus­sia’s Ural Moun­tains and, like the Yuba county five, never came back

When the search team was sent to look for them, it was met with an in­ex­pli­ca­ble sit­u­a­tion. The tent had been cut open from the in­side where the stu­dents had ‘ es­caped’, leav­ing all their ra­tions be­hind. Five of the group were found over one kilo­me­tre away in var­i­ous stages of un­dress, two had se­ri­ous burns to their hands while oth­ers had run bare- footed into the wilder­ness only to die of ex­po­sure.

The fi­nal four hik­ers were dis­cov­ered three months later, wear­ing the clothes of the other stu­dents. One had lost her tongue and an­other had se­ri­ous in­ter­nal in­juries, but not so much as a scratch was ex­ter­nally vis­i­ble. The cloth­ing was highly ra­dioac­tive and nearby res­i­dents re­ported glow­ing lights above the moun­tain on the night of their dis­ap­pear­ance. The Dy­at­lov Mys­tery is ob­vi­ously in­de­pen­dent of the Yuba County 5 cold case, but the two in­ci­dents have par­al­lels and seem un­likely to ever be solved.
