Nine patients with visual loss due to lesions of the optic nerve or chiasm experienced photisms induced by sound. Descriptions of these varied from simple flashes of white light to complicated colorful hallucinations likened to a flame, a petal of oscillating lines, a kaleidoscope, or an ameba; they always appeared within a defective portion of the visual field as demonstrated by perimetry. The provoking sounds were usually those of normal daily life, ranged from soft to loud, and always seemed to be heard by the ear ipsilateral to the eye in which the photism was seen. Sound-induced photisms occurred under circumstances that would promote a startle reaction to sound, and each patient was startled when the photisms occurred.
UPDATE: For reasons unknown, Russian authorities closed the entire area off from the public for three years. All material relating to the incident was sealed in a lock-box until 1990. When the records were unsealed in 1990, however, a number of pages were missing from the files, including an envelope which had previously been mentioned in the case materials list.
Even as regards very recent events - I am thinking of the end of the Second World War - we aware of how quickly technical objects can disappear. Weapons, ammunition, and even large finds are already almost completely rusted away and disintegrating. In view of this, the finds made recently in Russia are all the more astonishing. In the years 1991-1993, gold prospectors on the small river Narada, on the eastern side of the Ural mountains, have found unusual, mostly spiral-shaped objects. The size of these things ranges from a maximum of 3 cm (1.2 in.) down to an incredible 0.003 mm, about 1/10,000th of an inch! To date, these inexplicable artifacts have been found in their thousands at various sites near the rivers Narada, Kozhim, and Balbanyu, and also by two smaller streams named Vtvisty and Lapkhevozh, mostly at depths between 3 and 12 meters (10 and 40 ft.)
Quite apart from such subtleties, these objects are obviously the product of an inexplicable and highly advanced technology; they bear remarkable resemblance to control elements used in micro-miniature devices in our very latest technology, so-called nanomachines. This technology is still in its infancy with us, but already engineers are thinking of applications which are pure science-fiction. Among other things, they envisage constructing microprobes for use in medicine which can be implanted, such as for carrying out operations inside blood vessels which are not possible with present surgical techniques.
But on February 1st some strange things appeared in behavior of the group as police investigation had revealed. They had stopped to camp much earlier, than usually. The people had put tents one km from top only and in 1,5 km from edge of a forest on an entirely open place. The group without problems could pass this day on the mountaintop and stay in forest with firewood as usual. That day nobody wrote in diaries, but for some unknown reason they unwrapped the large sheet of paper and wrote on it in upper part by the large letters such words: "From now on we know that the snow men exist".
April 16, 1996 An April 16, 1996 New York Times article stated: In a secret project reminiscent of the chilliest days of the Cold War, Russia is building a mammoth underground military complex in the Ural Mountains, Western officials and Russian witnesses say. Hidden inside Yamantau Mountain in the Beloretsk area of the southern Urals, the project involved the creation of a huge complex, served by a railroad, a highway, and thousands of workers.’

If the rest was frozen how did they opened the mouth?

Maybe she died, all the other body parts were frozen and couldn't be eaten, but since the tongue is inside it was maybe not as frozen?
Psylocybin, the drug in mushrooms, CAN be tested for, but is not a standard test, unless someone wants to test for mushrooms specificaly, and order an expensive test kit, it wont be tested for.

The tent was cut open from within (were they all in one tent?)
You can see the cut in the photos on this site (in Russian).
This either suggests that there was something or someone preventing them from leaving through the exit, or that there was a struggle within involving a knife and that the cut was accidental or a part of this struggle. I'm more inclined to believe that if the cut was large enough for them to leave through it was a deliberate cut in order to escape the tent and not due to a struggle.
In this site (Google translation is better than nothing...) they say that she was found on the ground, face down, and with the ground soaked in her blood.
They all had a meal 6 to 8 hours before, so it's safe to assume the poor lady lost her tongue after this.
