Former Zappos CEO dead, but not in the way reported
46 year old guy that reportedly died from injuries related to a house fire.

I heard this is 99% wrong.

Allegedly, the guy was addicted to Nitrous Oxide (whippets), and he accidentally ignited the nitrous in his lungs while lighting a cig from a candle. Basically, an explosion that took place in his lungs. He did knock over the candle and started a small fire that was quickly extinguished.

Multi-millionaire with everything to live for. Sounds like a bad way to die, but the guy did carry a nitrous canister with him 24/7.

nitrous oxide is not flammable

This guy is right. At some point NOS is flammable. But not in the lungs.

i've actually followed this guy for awhile. He did a lot of good for my hometown. The downtown Vegas you see is due to a lot of his efforts

You’re 100% right. He was extremely generous and kind.

Really a great guy. Hate that he checked out.

What are whippets and what effect do they have?

How does a rumor like this even start? Everyone has enjoyed a balloon in the lot before a show, but nitrous oxide isn't flammable.

Still not as tragic as how Zach Morris died.

I know the Zappo’s CFO. Might ask him about this.
