ARCHIV - Die 5300 Jahre alte Gletscherleiche «Ötzi» liegt am 28.02.2011 im Archäologischen Museum in Bozen in einer Kühlkammer. Mumienforscher sind sich einig: «Ötzi», die wohl bekannteste Gletschermumie der Welt, wurde während einer Rast plötzlich getötet. Der Angreifer ließ ihn einfach liegen, niemand legte ihn in ein Grab: diesen Verlauf der letzten Stunde im Leben des Mannes hielten die Teilnehmer beim zweiten Weltmumienkongress an der Europäischen Akademie Bozen (EURAC) für das Wahrscheinlichste. Rund 100 Mumienforscher aus aller Welt hatten nach Informationen des Instituts bei dem Kongress am Wochenende (22./23.10.2011) Forschungsergebnisse und Theorien zu «Ötzi» verglichen.
