Is the body of Oetzi the Iceman cursed? Since his discovery in an alpine glacier straddling the border of Italy and Austria 14 years ago, strange deaths have befallen members of the expedition who uncovered Oetzi.

The latest 'victim' is 66-year-old Konrad Spindler, head of the Iceman investigation team at Innsbruck University, who officially died of complictations arising from his multiple sclerosis..

Prior to the discovery, the body of the stone age warrior had lain undisturbed for 53 centuries.
