Otzi the Iceman is a mummy from the Copper Age found in 1991 in Austria. He was accidently found by hikers with his clothes and equipment still with him. Over centuries ago, Otzi was passing through Tisenjoch/Giogo di Tisa in the Schnalstal/Val Senales Valley, South Tyrol, when he was murdered and preserved in ice. If you think about it, he’s older than Stonehenge and the one teacher you think cowrote the Roman laws and tutored Aristotle. I mean, he’s pretty old.
Found in the Alps between Austria and Italy in 1991 Ötzi’s death has been a mystery for years. When they first saw the mummy, they thought it was a modern day hiker that died of hypothermia, however as scientists came in they concluded that it was a mummy a 5,300 year old mummy, that was freeze-dried by the freezing weather. No matter what they did, they could not figure out how the once-alive man died.
Richard Leonard Kuklinski, known as “The Iceman” was born April 11, 1935. Kuklinski was a contract killer who was convicted of 5 murders. Kuklinski was given the nickname “Iceman” for freezing a body of a victim to mask the time when the victim was murdered. Kuklinski lived with his wife Barbara Kuklinski and 3 children in the suburb of Dumont, New Jersey. Prior to his arrest, his family was apparently unaware of Kuklinski's double life and crimes. Kuklinski was a contract killer for Newark's DeCavalcante crime family and New York City's Five Families of the American Mafia. Kuklinski favored to murder people with sodium cyanide since it killed very quickly and also was hard to detect. With Cyanide, Kuklinski would simply kill the victim by either injecting the cyanide in them, putting it in the victim’s food, aerosol spray or spilling it on the victim’s skin. After killing his victim, he will dispose the body in a 55-gallon oil drum. Other ways Kuklinski would dispose the body were either burying the body or putting the body in the trunk of a car then having it crushed in the junkyard. Kuklinski says that Robert Pronge, nicknamed “Mr. Softee” has taught him different methods to use cyanide to kill his victims. Pronge allegedly asked him to carry out a hit on Pronge's
Otzi is a mummified body that was found near the Otzal apes. It was preserved in the ice. Otzi is one of the only preserved bodies that is almost completely preserved. Even after all of that time he had no special treatment to help preserve. It was preserved for about 5,300 years. He was found in 1991 by a couple of tourists on the Italian/Austrian border.
Imagine a world with no trees, no healthy grass, no glaciers, or no living creatures at all. The cause of this tragedy could be the increase in heat in the Earth’s atmosphere due to global warming. If global warming continues to increase, the world will be left empty. The Earth has been around for a long time, and many feet have walked on it, but no one has walked on this Earth without trees, grass, or creatures. With global warming, the Earth’s meteorology gets too warm, and all of the glaciers will start to melt. Global warming occurs when an increase in the carbon dioxide levels causes the temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere to rise. The Earth’s meteorology is often a subject explored in literature. For example, “Chronicles of Ice” talks
Ötzi the Iceman is the oldest naturally preserved human body ever found. Because of Ötzi, we can touch and almost see into the very distant past. We can imagine the lives led by our human ancestors. The discovery and study of Ötzi enables us to look back through time and glimpse an ancient world.

Otzi or “The Iceman” was found in 1991, 10,000 feet up in the Italian Alps and was thought to have lived more than 5,000 years ago (during the Stone Age) and now we are receive new information on how he may have died. After scientists discovered that Otzi was shot or stabbed in the back theories were flying but today we may have found the truth. Many believed that Otzi was part of some kind of war or was attempting to take land from another community, but if this is true where are all the other bodies of his fellow soldiers? Should we send a search party of archaeologists to look for them? No we shouldn’t because that is not what happened. Here at Boyle Post we believe that, due to the fact that he had the remnants of wheat grains on his decomposed
What is the actual cause of Otzi the Iceman’s death? Using information from different websites I was able to get different theories from different archaeologists and forensic radiologists to help me decide how Otzi died.
Otzi the “Iceman” was struck with an arrow in the back and was hit or hit his head on a rock and suffered a serious blow to the head by someone he knew. MRI scans show that he was shot with an arrow and was lodged in his back. This shows he was being followed and shot in the back then the killer pulled the arrow from his back. The Iceman had blood clots in his brain that suggest he suffered a blow to the head which could have been deadly shown by an MRI scan as a strange anomaly. This explains why his head was on a rock and how he could have potentially died. Otzi was found with fresh opened wounds and scars on his hands. This could mean that Otzi had been in hand to hand combat with someone he knew. The evidence shows that Otzi was killed
The documentary Iceman Murder Mystery was about a stone age mummified human found in 1991 by hikers in the Italian Alps. Otzi the stone age human is about 5,300 years old and is the oldest human found still intact. The documentary is mostly surrounded by scientists finding out what kind of life this human had, how he died, and what his DNA looked like. Scientists only had 9 hours to go into the mummified remains and extract DNA, try to look at the murder weapon lodged in the iceman's shoulder, and look into his stomach without destroying the remains (Iceman Murder Mystery). They also looked at the items found on the iceman to see if that had any answers into the iceman's life. They found a shoe on him, a copper axe, a knife, and arrows that
So, who was Ozti the Iceman? Apparently he is the oldest known mummy of a man that was found in the Otztal Mountains of Italy, which is where his name comes from, in 1991. Otzi’s body was surprisingly well preserved when he was discovered and was thought to be a very recent carcass so scientists took him in to further study on exactly who he was. They discovered that he was 5 feet 2 inches tall, seemed to have been healthy and in shape, and had very many tattoos. The scientists have also found that Otzi comes from the Stone Age. They have also found that he was about 40 years old when he died and lived around 3,300 BCE. Learning more about Otzi has assisted in learning about the ancient world not very many people know about now.
In 1991 two German hikers found a body stuck in the ice of Italian mountains. When the body was first found they thought that he was just another victim of a hiking accident. After further investigation, they concluded that he wasn’t just another body, but in fact a 5,300 year old mummy. The mummy was named Ötzi after the Ötztal Alps where he was found. Although scientists know how he was killed, they are still speculating why he was murdered. Scientists do know that he was killed by a 24 inch arrow in his back that caused him to go into cardiac arrest. The arrow was shot from 30 yards with 50 pounds of force. There are many theories on why he was killed. One theory is that he was sacrificed but there is one major flaw in that theory. The
Otzi, the 5,300 year old Iceman that was found on September 19th, 1991 was brutally killed in battle on a mountain. This theory is correct for many reasons including the injuries and where they are, how severe the injuries were, and more. It is also correct because in an article it had said “showed his death was violent, not the result of drowning, hypothermia or a fall.” proving other theorems incorrect. There were also two wounds in the Iceman’s right hand as well as his right wrist. We know this because the archeologists had said “he was stabbed while trying to defend himself with a dagger against an attacker” and if Otzi was really using a dagger then the attacker must have been closer and would not have had to use an arrow. There also
Scientific investigation has been a powerful tool in discovering the truth about the Iceman, especially with the advancements of technology, which have proved to be significant in developing our understanding of theories, both old and new, and allowing a reinterpretation of different aspects of the Otzi’s life. In particular, the extensive studies that have been conducted on the Iceman’s health have considerably shed light on the state of his well-being. This has led to the discussion of the nature of the Iceman’s occupation, which is an aspect that has been driven by the research conducted on his lifestyle. The mystery surrounding Otzi’s death has been explored, transforming theories over time, allowing us an insight on his demise. As society has been renovated by the improvements of technology, the tools used through scientific investigations applied to Otzi have provided more accuracy, allowing us to uncover the truths about the ins and outs of his health, lifestyle and death.
