Interesting case indeed.
I've noted several differences in the recounts I've read tho. For instance, most articles on the subject say that the injuries on the three bodies
were made BEFORE death, so missing bruises is kinda perplexing. Allthough, it could be, as stated previously in the thread, because of the extreme
cold, or the discoloration of the skin.
Second, the victims are described as being blinded, allthough no explanation is given as to how this was established. I found a few pics tho, where

Third, they had all, according to reports, eaten 6-8 hours before death. No toxicology was ever performed, to my knowledge, but the fly agaric
mushroom is common in these regions, albeit abit hard to find in winter.
Fourth, the bodies found at a later date were beneath 4meters of snow. It is not clarified how much snow had fallen in the gap between the finds, but
