If you thought that 'The Marconi Murders' were suspicious...

... have a gawp at this!

'Independent Russian media organisation Mash posted on Telegram that billionaire Alexander Subbotin, a former executive at energy giant Lukoil, died after coming into contact with a “poisonous toad” during an “anti-hangover session” led by a “shaman”.'

'In late April, Sergey Protosenya, the former top manager of Russia’s energy giant Novatek, and Vladislav Avaev, ex-vice president of Gazprombank, were also found dead in Spain and Moscow respectively along with their wives and daughters.'

Tsk. Is that any way to speak of the Russian president?

Just watched a Mallorca Files ep about an Oligarch getting topped in Spain.

It appeared that he killed his wife and daughter with an axe before killing himself.

His student son who was away at university and escaped his family's grisly fate, said that this was completely out-of-character for his father.

Well, to be fair, he'd probably not done it before.

Come on now. Who here can honestly say they've never gone on an axe-wielding killing spree after licking a poisonous toad during a shamanic hangover-curing session

ReverendBlueJeans - 13 Jun 2022 11:16:23 (#7 of 10)

Yes. Frankly it's a bit cliched.

Just following the crowd, these Russian oligarchs..
