Russian Hominologist Dies

Posted by: Loren Coleman on December 19th, 2011

In response to Top Ten Cryptozoology Deaths of 2011, Chad Arment has informed me that Russian hominologist Alexandr Fedenyow passed away only a few days ago. Fedenyow apparently died suddenly. He was 46.

These further insights also are just in:

Tommy Shirley shares these two images created by Alexandr Fedenyow, who was also a graphic artist, of the Russian Almasty variety called Leshiy:

I’m sorry to inform you that on December 15, 2011, at the age of 46 died suddenly Alexandr (Sasha) Fedenyov – a ‘troublemaker’ on the Cryptozoology (Russian) site… Ural’s tracker… Memory Eternal to him! Went to his mother, returned to his home, after a few hours they discovered him breathless. The autopsy showed swelling of the lungs (suffered from asthma). Died December 15, buried on the 17th. Not long ago he very much wanted to go to the Ural’s tayga where he many times met with a hominoid, but had no opportunity… And I am very sorry that I could not help him in this. ~ Igor Bourtsev

As more details are gathered, they will be added here.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    “…many times met with a hominiod…”? What does that mean?

    I am sorry to hear of the death of Alexandra Fedenyov. What a sad loss for his family !
    Following on from his multiple sightings of the almas I wonder how many authorative pictures he was able to draw of the almas and where are these available? They might imform on the question of if and how the almas differ from sasaquatch.

  3. Tara responds:

    This is SO sad to me. What a loss of a wonderful person and balzy researcher. My kind of guy. May you Rest in Peace Alexander. I will miss you friend.

  4. William responds:

    Sorry to read this news but do want to comment that I think his artwork is just wonderful! If it is based on an actual Almasty whose face is that handsome, it makes me wonder what is wrong with the average American version or ,whose face is normally described as rather hideous to view. Unless of course, one of the “Tribal” Bigfoot variety, who all seemingly look much like noble American Indians, facially at least.

  5. Kopite responds:

    RIP Alexandr. Sad news indeed. 46 is way too young. Condolences to his family and friends.

  6. Jonathan Poulsen responds:

    So sad…….Russian Hominologist’s always have peaceful and respectful way of conducting research, R.I.P.
