"Guns N' Noses", Way to Die #465, is the fourth death featured in "Killing Them Softly", which aired on March 9, 2011.


On December 14, 1992, in Sierra Leone, after capturing and killing a diamond smuggler, a ruthless warlord named Tomo celebrates by snorting "brown-brown" (cocaine laced with nitroglycerine-laced gunpowder). However, he was unaware that the tray holding the mixture is contaminated with diamond dust; when he snorts the mixture, the particles lacerate his arteries and travel to his heart, causing him to bleed to death.

"Tomo: the gun-shooting cocaine-gunpowder tooting warlord learned a valuable lesson. Diamonds don't last forever...Being dead does!"
