Killing The Un-killable Irishman Michael Malloy

The official cause of death given to Michael Malloy, an Irish drunkard, was lobar pneumonia, however this was the fifth time the ‘Murder Trust’ attempted to take his life. To finally kill the “durable Mike” Malloy the four conspirators placed a gas get over Malloy’s mouth, wrapped with a towel to prevent the nitrous gas from escaping his lungs. Even this method of human extermination took a whole fifteen minutes to kill the Irish legend.
