Is the igloo a tent?
Are they in the wilderness?

Is the cause of death the same for both?
Is it one of the following:
...suffocation?
...bleeding?
...poisoning?
...electrocution?
...wounds?
...drowning?

Would the puzzle work with one dead man? Three?

Are the men real? Human (a bit redundant, I know)? Adult? Male?

Was their death related to something that was in the cooler?
If so,
something they ate?
something they drank?
a medicine?

Was it spoiled?
contaminated?
not edible in the first place?
