TRUE true crime

Now this is a TRUE true crime podcast! I love that you explain complicated issues in a way that makes sense in everyday life. Your experience is unmatched! I would love to hear your take on the Russian hikers’ bodies found at the Dyatlov Pass. Was the lady’s tongue taken when she was still alive based on the blood/goo in her stomach? If so, why was this fact skimmed over later? It seems to mean some kind of an attack as opposed to scavengers. I doubt she lived long with the “unknown compelling force” she was not able to overcome hitting her. Anyway, thanks for an awesome podcast!
