it is placed into the wilderness where birds of prey
The places where this is practiced, they do not carry the corpse miles into the high mountains.
Yes, that's exactly what they do.
Be it the remoteness of the location or the danger involved in reaching it, for whatever reason, these places have kept their mysteries to themselves over the ages, hidden in their dark corners of the world from the outside as time marches on around them. It is often pure accident that saves these historical oddities from eternal obscurity and dredges them into the light for us to finally take a look at
One such place lies high in the Himalaya Mountains of the Uttarakhand state of India; a small glacial lake called Roopkund.
The lake is located in a remote area of craggy glaciers, rocky chasms, and snow blanketed mountains, at an altitude of 5,209 meters (16,499 feet).

2] if there was a prisoner kneeling with their hands tied and it was your job to kill them with a club with a rounded rock attached to the end, where would you strike the prisoner to make the kill? ...on the back? ...on their legs or arms?
Answer: On the head only. But they said shoulders too which is odd...
Finally, Lalji Singh's DNA tests at Hyderabad's Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology would also suggest an identity of this mystery "family" that died so cataclysmically. His findings support Walimbe's idea that they were relatives, since the DNA matched. He also discovered that some samples showed genetic mutations specific only to Maharashtra's Kokanastha, or Chitpavan, Brahmins.
Might the lineage that gave us Milind Soman, Dadasaheb Phalke, Kiran Nagarkar, V.D. Paluskar, Ajit Agarkar, Lokmanya Tilak have suffered catastrophically on a Himalayan slope some 40 generations ago? It's an intriguing thought.
