How did Edmond Locard die?
Edmund Locard died of lung cancer in 1966 when he was 89. He had been a heavy chain smoker and, like the popular jazz singer Nat "King" Cole, believed that his voice was so good because he smoked so many cigarettes. Sadly, there was no cure for lung cancer at the time. Now there exists some treatment but apparently a viable solution is to smoke several packs of cigarettes a day.
