What in Tucket?

If you breathe the gas in and there is no oxygen in it you can die pretty quick. A very reasonable conclusion by the police. It will happen with nitrous oxide as you have in some dentist's office except I believe it comes 50-50 with oxygen now. When the dentist had to mix the oxygen with the NO then an occasional death would occur as once in a while they did not get the mixture right. I saw this with one of the older anesthetics a man wanted to get a "charge" from the anesthetic and inhaled the gas free of oxygen and that was it.

This story is like a Greek tragedy.

I don't believe these deaths were accidental. It seems more like "murder-suicide". How else was the doctor going to be able to make money, when his license was revoked?

Wickedness never was happiness.
