"Wait a minute, this isn't Albatross!" (Awful riddles thread)

Well it was for @Raanraals to come back on. Why hasn't he?

So someone sent the message to worry the millionaire into buying a gas mask but the one he was sold was actually full of poisonous gas?

So he was killed by a gas mask salesman?


#2122

Locked himself in an airtight room to avoid the gas but then suffocated.


#2123

Hmm, I'm trying to find the photo of the back of the card.

Jen sent me loads but then everyone lost interest and I'm not sure where they are.


#2124

I gave up. I'm not bloody Miss Marple.


#2125

Right, so the cylinder our victim breathed from was actually full of poison gas.

But the killer was not the manufacturer or seller of the apparatus.


#2126

"Your death surrounded by pains" is a red herring. It should be 'panes' and refers to the millionaire being lured into a fart filled greenhouse.


#2127

It should indeed be panes.


#2128

someone was trying to steal the millionaire's money so gassed him.

next.


#2129

Window cleaner?


#2130

no, I'm just nosy


#2131

Greenhouse is a good shout.


#2132

Is there a poisonous plant?


#2133

Aquarium?


#2134

No.


#2135

Is the fact the victim is a millionaire relevant?


#2136

No. There's glass in front and behind him.


#2137

A car then?

Are we saying they'd fed his exhaust back into the car somehow?


#2138

Not a car.

No, he died because his breathing equipment that he was carrying with him as a defence turned out to be filled with poison gas.

Who might have access to it?


#2139

Doctor?


#2140

Pest control?
