граница Сосновского и Моршанского районов
Tambovskaya oblast

The first tragedy occurred in 1859 . On that sunny winter day, 9 visiting officials from Tambov went hunting. Before dark, they did not have time to return to the gatehouse and decided to set up a parking lot right on the slope of the ravine. They built a hut and went to bed. But at night something inexplicable happened... The frozen corpses of hunters were discovered by the huntsman Pyotr Baranov. He called the police to the scene of the tragedy. Investigators stumbled upon terrible finds. Two of the dead were lying at the entrance to the hut. Another corpse was found inside a temporary structure.

At the autopsy, they found a crack in his skull. At the same time, there were no traces of contact of any object with the scalp. One of the hunters had his tongue torn out. Three young people died from internal injuries: broken ribs, torn internal organs, numerous hemorrhages. But there were no bruises or abrasions on the bodies!

Another mystery: the skin of all the victims was a strange, orange color and all the victims were absolutely gray. The case of the hunters' death was closed. The metropolitan pathologist who opened the bodies reported that an expression of extreme horror was frozen on all faces.

A few years later, 19 more corpses were found in that area… Since then, not a single local resident comes close to those places.
