Deceased Learner Colin Madsen's Mom Blasts 'Ineptitude' of Siberia Cops

The grieving mother of a U. S. learner whose body was found in Siberia has accused local authorities of a cover-up over his death.

Dana Madsen Calcutt believes her son Colin Madsen was likely killed, and that suggestions he walked out of a guesthouse into freezing temperatures wearing only a T-shirt were "hurtful."

The 25-year-old MO native'south body was found Sun about one mi from Arshan at the ft of the Sayan Mountains, according to Russia'south Investigative Committee. He'd been lost since March twenty-seven.

Madsen and two friends had been planning to scale a 1.2-mile high mountain known as the "Love Peak."

There were number obvious signs of injury, his clothing was intact and he was carrying personal items and money, the committee said in a statement issued in Russian.

"The investigation will have to define why a lightly-dressed learner left the guesthouse without warning friends and left for the forest," it added.

The student'south mother, who's traveled to Siberia to retrieve his body, said alcohol wasn't involved in his death and accused "misinformation" that made her son "appear foolish."

In a Facebook post Wednesday, she said: "It is very hurtful to his family. He didn't go out in a T-shirt, it was a long sleeve thermal shirt. There is number substantiation that he went or told anyone he was going exterior for a walk."

"I believe that the local police here didn't do their work"

She well-known that the guesthouse'south bathrooms were exterior "in an outhouse," adding: "If Colin did any drugs (which we don't know) he'd have smoked marijuana and that was hours before this event occurred. There was number alcohol involved."

Madsen Calcutt wrote: "He was familiar with this space that he loved to hike, spoke fluent Russian, and had his pack, water and food prepared for the climb. Those things were left at the cabin. He was found a mi away, one day after the Russian FBI came."

The student'south mother suggested that Russian executive had failed to get the look for seriously.

"I believe that the local police here didn't do their work and even to me made innuendos and remarks that were defamatory about Colin, when they didn't know him and should've been looking for him," she added. "I think they're trying to cover up the ineptitude that occurred here before we came and the pressure to discover him was accelerated."

Madsen Calcutt also praised U. S. Embassy executive for "compassion, wisdom, and love."

The Investigative Committee has opened a murder investigation — which is customary in the case of any lost person — but has yet to comment officially on the exact cause of Madsen'south death.

"The murder investigation is still open and I detest to even think it, but I believe barring some medical catastrophe love an aneurysm or pulmonary embolus, that it's likely," Madsen'south mother wrote. "He would've never walked to a space in the pitch shadowy with his shoes unlaced, number socks, and when he was leaving for a climb in just a few hours that he was so excited about."

She also thanked friends for their "love and support," adding that she'd be traveling to Irkutsk then onwards to Moscow and back to the United States.

"I have so many other things to tell you about this debacle but I mightn't ever be prepared to speak about it," Madsen Calcutt wrote.
