Dr. Frasier Crane : [about Dr. Simon Finch-Royce] We were students together when I was a Rhodes scholar.
Woody Boyd : Wow, you were a Rhodes scholar?
[Frasier nods affirmatively]
Woody Boyd : Tell me this, how come the stuff they fill in the potholes with is darker than the rest of the road?
Dr. Frasier Crane : I don't know Woody. I missed that day.
Woody Boyd : And now it's come back to haunt you.

Yeeeah, I'm going to suggest that if the authorities find a perfume bottle in those guys' belongings they dispose of it very, very carefully

Aren't they supposed to be really tall?

I remember googling something like "tallest women by region" and got something like that. But, this was ages ago. They might be shorter now.

Preliminary cause of death appears to be asphyxiation.

Didn't find much on it, but apparently it's a thing.

They did give us Bebe Rexha.
Not a huge fan of her music, but it ain't the worst out there.  More important, she gets the Sir Mix-A-Lot stamp of approval.

I wouldn't rule it out, but I wouldn't assume it first.

Who they were (I have seen names, but didn't recognize them), and who they were in business with would be helpful.

Using a flame-based (i.e. kerosene/gas/charcoal) heater in an enclosed space that isn't properly ventilated is asking for trouble.  If the source is outside, but the exhaust is pulled into the sauna by the fan, it could reach toxic levels.

Modern kerosene/gas heaters have fuel cutoffs for low oxygen levels; no guarantee the sauna was using one.

All Russians are spies, Putin personally recruit them at birth. And those four spies were obviously conspiring against Democracy™  I mean they were in a sauna, what other clues do people needs?

If you can't throw a bit of water on the rocks and feel the tiger's bite, it ain't a sauna.

It's one of the mysterious ways of Fark submissions.
Like the story about the Chinese propaganda movie, that lands in the entertainment tab.

The names released; Sergey Burenkov, 60, and wife Natalya Burenkova, 58, from Moscow, were on holiday with their daughter Katya, 31, and her partner Nikita Belousov, 37.

Sergey Burenkov is a pretty common name, but there is a journalist by that name, so the odds on the different possibilities are still very fuzzy.

Hurr durr, it's okay to call for dead Russian civilians.

Imagine if someone wrote that about some (illegal) "immigrants" or maybe another one of Fark's "protected classes"

4 people who all knew each other personally, traveling from their home nation to another nation, died together in the other nation from non-natural causes. I'm pretty sure this might qualify as an international incident, even if it turns out that their deaths were the result of a tragic accident rather than foul play.

/the fact that the 4 people are from a nation known for causing undesirables to have fatal "accidents" might also be a factor
 
2021-10-17 1:07:28 PM  
I bet the official cause will be that they fell out of an open window

Albania is at least 4 countries away from Russia.
