Murder at 10,000 feet
I've been following the story of Otzi the Iceman for years, ever since his incredibly well-preserved cadaver was discovered defrosting in the Alps (who says global warming is all bad?). Otzi had been hit by an arrow shortly before he died and may have been clubbed to death as he lay wounded in the snow. Did he owe someone money? In any case, if this kind of thing has been going on the Alps for the last fifty-three centuries, its really no wonder why the Swiss are always armed to the teeth.
