Breaking news Iceman's discoverer dead in Alps

Helmut Simon, the German who discovered an intact Bronze Age mummy in an Alps glacier, has been found dead in the Austrian Alps.

A hunter found his remains in a stream just as rescuers were planning to suspend their search eight days after he went missing while on a hike.

Well, that's sad. Kudos to Mr. Simon on his discovery and our sincerest condolences to his family and friends.
