I was going to go with chemical and or cleaner swarm over fire. One part of the "kill" plot was using a small devourer swarm. One that could be put in a shotgun slug.

The detectives will likely have fire, gas, guns, knifes, clubs, and or fists to deal with. Maybe all of them. With the exception of two, all the other PCs will have a lethal means to take out the victum. And I won't be suprized if they try it on one another to protect their identities.
