"Cult Evaded", Way to Die #310, is the fourth death to be featured in "Gratefully Dead", which aired on January 13, 2010.


On September 20, 2000, in Encino, California, Stacy, a teenager girl who has been in foster homes for most of her life, is taken in by an extremely devout Apostolic couple named Roman and Minnie. On her first day living with them, they are immediately convinced that she is possessed by the Devil because of her tattoos, piercings, dark make-up, and interest in the Goth subculture (including having a boyfriend who is Goth), so they and two friends from their church try to exorcise her by tying her to the ground inside an enclosed tent and burning a large amount of coal and incense to rid her of the alleged demons inside her. As the coal and incense create more smoke inside the tent, everyone (except for Stacy, who was so low to the ground that she had a layer of fresh air above her) drops dead from carbon monoxide inhalation. Stacy then unties herself and happily heads off to the mall, unfazed over their deaths.
