according to wikipedia: This colorless, toxic and flammable gas is responsible for the foul odor of rotten eggs and flatulence.

Did the police check the closest Pachinko Palace for the suspect? Usually after a bad streak of luck, some people get some crazy ideas to make up the lost money.

Looks like water, smells like S*it. according to wikipedia: Hydrogen sulfide is considered a broad-spectrum poison, meaning that it can poison several different systems in the body, although the nervous system is most affected. The toxicity of H2S is comparable with that of hydrogen cyanide. It forms a complex bond with iron in the mitochondrial cytochrome enzymes, thereby blocking oxygen from binding and stopping cellular respiration. Since hydrogen sulfide occurs naturally in the environment and the gut, enzymes exist in the body capable of detoxifying it by oxidation to (harmless) sulfate.[3] Hence low levels of sulfide may be tolerated indefinitely. Humans can smell the odour of hydrogen sulphide at 0.02ppm, and for comparison sake, a pungent flatus (or fart) will produce around 0.03ppm of hydrogen sulfide
