Has anyone heard about the Otzi curse ...? well here it is Smile:

Last month, the death of historian Professor Konrad Spindler, head of the Ötzi investigation team at the University of Innsbruck, strengthened the legend of the "Ötzi curse".

Indeed, five other people who had direct contact with the mummy have died under mysterious circumstances.

The first was Guenter Henn, the forensic pathologist who picked the mummy from the snow with bare hands. A year later, Henn died in a head-on collision while on his way to present "sensational findings" on the mummy at a conference.

Shortly after, Kurt Fritz, the mountain guide, who was one of the first to see the mummy's face, was killed in an avalanche.

Rainer Hoelzl, who died of a brain tumour, was the third victim. Hoelzl was the only journalist allowed to film the removal of the mummy from the ice.

The Ötztal Alps were also fatal to Helmut Simon, whose body was found trapped in ice last October just like his famous find.

As if that wasn't enough, Dieter Warnecke, head of the rescue service who found Simon's frozen body, died of a heart attack an hour after Simon's funeral.

On 18 April, it was Spindler's turn. He died, aged 66, from complications arising from multiple sclerosis.

After Simon's death, Spindler had been asked if he believed the curse. He replied: "No. Next thing you will be saying I will be next."
