"Dead Fella", Way to Die #178, is the fifth death to be featured in "Getting A Rise From The Dead", which aired on February 16, 2011.
Two mobsters named Leo and Tony are setting out after former mobster Vito, who had been nabbed by FBI agents and agreed to testify against them in court. When the two see Vito getting in his car, a Chrysler 300C, they fit their pistols with silencers and get to work. Leo and Tony are on opposite ends of Vito's car and prepare to make the hit. When Vito drives by, Leo takes his chance but alas Tony never took his chance. What Leo and Tony didn’t know, however, was that the feds had installed bulletproof glass on Vito's car. When Leo fired his pistol, the bullet ricocheted off the windshield, and sliced through Tony's carotid artery at which point he bleeds to death.
