"Sky Scraped", Way to Die #596, is the second death featured in "Crying Over Spilled Blood", which aired on July 15, 2012.


It is a cold and windy day on the streets of Chicago, but eighty floors up, it's much colder (in a proverbial way). If you fell behind on your mortgage payments, you would hope not to face... Alexis, who runs the mortgaging department of the bank. She is a sadistic and mean-spirited she-devil who enjoys her clients' miserable reactions when she forecloses on their homes, as well as to act rudely towards them if they object. While looking out of the window of the eighty-floor office building where she works, Alexis wonders how many more lives she can ruin... the answer is none. A freak wind storm, combined with the building's negative air pressure, violently implodes the window, causing Alexis to be pierced and cut down by hundreds of glass shards. She dies from a shard that severs her auxiliary artery, causing her to bleed out quickly.

"Alexis enjoyed taking people's homes away. She was heartless, but then a freak wind storm blew her away, and she wound up... lifeless."
