The mystery: On Thursday, on a mountain outside of Reykjavik, Iceland, a 26 year-old man from Poland was spotted walking hiking completely naked – not even wearing shoes – in conditions of high wind and thick fog. The next day, the man was found near the top of the mountain, frozen to death, still naked.
The frozen naked hiker’s clothes and identification were found in a pile at the bottom of the mountain. He was a 26 year-old immigrant from Poland who had never before exhibited any unusual behavior.
The challenge: Give a plausible explanation of what led to these events.
