On September 19, 1991 two hikers Helmut and Erika Simon were walking among the Otzal Alps. As they ventured off the track they spotted something emerging from the snow and ice. Upon closer inspection, they discovered that it was the head and torso of a corpse. Upon seeing the corpse, the couple initially believed that the body were the remains of a recent hiking accident and reported the case to the police.
