    Where did that photo come from? I’ve read the major books on Dyatlov pass, and never seen it before. Seems a bit odd that, for example, the Fortean Times would speculate about a Yeti’s involvement in the incident and then not publish the photo that appears to show the group being stalked by Patty. Is this another cable channel fauxumentary like the Megalodaon one of this past summer?

    I was interviewed by Neil Rawles too. I understood that he was making a program to fit the solution of the puzzle under the ready answer. And he tried to get from me the same answer about fault of the yeti in group’s death. For this he was shooting me for many times asking only one question: could be yeti a reason of the death? But I couldn’t agree and rejected that…

    Quated: The new Discovery documentary fuels speculation that Porschnev’s January 1959 Snowman expedition was withdrawn from the mountains because he was getting too close for comfort to discovering hidden Soviet secrets.
    It was no reason to say so. By the way, Porshnev was not a head of the expedition, he was just a supervisor from the Academy of Sciences. The reason that expedition failed (it continued for almost a half of year) was that 1. It’s headed by a botanist, prof. Stanyukovich, who didn’t believe in yeti’s existence and led the expedition to gather the samples for a Geo-Botanic Atlas of those Pamir Mountains. 2. Expedition staff didn’t include any zoologist, not saying about primatologists. 3. At that time they didn’t know, Whom to search, where to search, and how to search. 4. Because of all of that, B. Porshnev created an ethnologic group from some members and gave them a task to interview the local inhabitants about wildmen, and that is why he could gather a lot of reports about encounters.
    After closing the Commission Porshnev continued that work with supporters and published a lot of articles and a big monograph, having founded a new branch of science – hominology, the science about hominoids, humanlike beings existing in wilderness…

    Loren, did you happen to met up with any of Tom Slick’s family while doing your research? Last I had heard, a daughter still lives in San Antonio.

    I just finished a ton of reading on the Dyatlov tragedy and I did not encounter that photo, either. It seems pretty obvious that nothing left any prints, etc. that suggest something like a Yeti. Also, I can’t even begin to express my disappointment in the Discovery channel for this B.S. sensationalistic garbage they have been putting out for awhile now. That channel used to be a great source for interesting subjects of all kinds, and now, it is the “National Enquirer” of science channels. The other thing that aggravates me is that everytime these kind of people “fake” evidence and sensationalize things like Bigfoot, it drives reputable researchers further away from it. Thank God Jeff Meldrum sticks with it.

    I’ve read a lot about the Dyatlov expedition as well and this documentary is the first time that picture showed up. As far as the footprints were concerned, I thought that they had been matched to various expedition members. The ‘lights in the sky’ photo doesn’t show anything clearly. The whole ‘Yeti bedding in the cave’ scene seemed contrived.

    Just not buying this at all.

    So here is my question and I can’t find a straight answer. Obviously the show took poetic license with the story (like the megladon and mermaids)and even stated so. What I am trying to determine is if the journal they found actually did state that “we now know snowmen exist”. If so, this is pretty dramatic evidence yet on sites that discuss this incident it isn’t listed so it makes me think that was a show embellishment.
    Just curious if anyone had heard this prior to this show.
