Something slaughtered Russian hikers in 1959…

But to this, no one is quite sure what did. Tonight, George Knapp takes us back in time to try to find out..

Some background may be in order.. 
The event is termed the Dyatlov Pass incident. It’s been a famed target of paranormal and UFO investigators for some time. The entire affair is shrouded with mystery. 
Nine hikers, who were experienced in their craft, died in some pretty bizarre ways in 1959.  Human tracks were found heading downhill. The temperature was minus 24 at the time the hikers were on the Russia Ural Mountains—the local language named the mountain “Do not Go There.” The tracks that were found were strange mainly because, in the conditions, they were barefoot. Barefoot—minus 24 and barefoot tracks were found.. Think about that one for a minute.
Thinks get even weirder, though. 
Seven men and two women were said to be experienced hikers.. history tells us that they were in the snow-capped Ural Mountains. Cold.. beautiful.. and deadly for all nine of them, as they never lived to tell the tale of their venture. Instead, their bodies were found in various locations, frozen in the conditions.. Some of them also had horrid internal injuries, but yet their outside physical appearance showed no wounds or scratches. They also had high levels of radiation present ion some of their clothes. One person found dead was missing a tongue. They were prematurely aged—their hair was gray…
Typically, as things go, people claim UFOs are behind it. They also say Soviet weapons did it. Some claim Bigfoot. A plethora of explanations of the strange—but the real strange thing of this whole affair is that we don’t know what did it..
Tonight on Coast to Coast AM, George Knapp will attempt to find out.  I am eagerly looking forward to this program.. I think Knapp will do it justice, and I can’t wait to hear some theories proposed by Keith McCloskey, who wrote a book on the incident calledMOUNTAIN OF THE DEAD.
Listen in should you have the chance..
Unless the story is just too creepy to handle.

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise. Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton. She was a regular sight at major award shows and fashion ceremonies. In 2015, Time Magazine named her China's "most famous actress."  But the film star hasn't been seen in public since early June, when, according to a post on her verified social-media account, she went to visit a children's hospital in Tibet. In an article by state media Securities Daily on September 6, which was later deleted, the publication said Fan had been brought "under control and about to receive legal judgment."
