"Sun Burnt", Way to Die #631, is the seventh and final death to be featured in "Locked and Low Dead", which aired on February 29, 2012.


Lionel (Alex Sanborn) is a sociopathic geek and prankster who creates a death ray from a parabolic dish and a lot of tin foil. Lionel waits until the sun's highest peak to test out his death ray, successfully burning a toy soldier, a grasshopper, a butterfly, and also burning his neighbor's hand after tricking him to put it in the sun's direction. Lionel then puts a can of beans in the beam's direction while singing the bean song, causing it to explode. The force of the explosion knocks Lionel unconscious, causing him to fall onto the cinder block platform with the back of his head facing the death ray. This causes the beam to melt the back of his skull and soon his brain, killing him. His neighbour was not around to witness his death. The announcer said that he will have fun watching Lionel die as Lionel's brain is continuing cooking, sending the prankster geek to hell.

"Lionel thought killing things was fun. But in the end, we got to have all the fun... watching him die."
