Because Hoffmanstahl knew about his plot, Moriarty decided to kill him. He therefore placed a bomb inside the payment box and sent Irene Adler to deliver it to him in a London auction house. Although Sherlock Holmes managed to intervene in time and defuse the bomb, Hoffmanstahl was killed with a poison dart by Colonel Sebastian Moran as he left the building.
