I am wondering if anyone has been to see this. Assuming that it was finished.

She died of breast cancer, however she also had some physical injuries, as if she had fallen from her horse or some other similarly high object.

Although the people in Altai want her to be reburied where she was found, this has not been done yet and she is being kept at a museum nearby. The local people say she is angry and that there have been earthquakes and storms caused by her spirit.

For anyone interested in scoring that skinny, quiet girl of your dreams... now's your chance!

No but seriously, that's pretty cool. If I had more brains about me it would've been fascinating to become a paleo-pathologist and work on stuff like this.
