"Re-Formed", Way to Die #312, is the fourth death featured in "The Good, The Bad, and the Dead", which aired on March 8, 2009.


A thief named Griff runs and trespasses into a private property. Griff gets a box out of a truck, but he soon got caught by a cop and another guy. They both chased Griff and Griff soon found a way to escape. He hides in a dumpster, which is then emptied into a garbage truck. The garbage truck carries the dumpster where Griff is, Griff screams for help, but nobody hears him. When more garbage is emptied on top of him, Griff is trapped and the load of garbage is compacted, crushing him. His bones snapped one-by-one, and eventually his vital organs bursted from the severe pressure. This type of disintegration easily crushed Griff's body.

"There you go. A new way to reform a criminal."
