"Huffington Toast", Way to Die #98, is the fourth death to be featured in "Dead to Rights", which aired on February 17, 2010.

Plot

This death is seen through the lens of a security camera. Three paint huffers are getting high from a paint can. Then they find even stronger toxic chemicals, not knowing they were industrial-grade solvents. One huffer asks for another to pour the contents on him so he can huff the smell directly from his clothes and stay high. However, it removes all the heat from his body. So, he asks them to warm him up with a match. However, the match ignites the solvent, engulfing him in flames and he eventually dies of fourth-degree burns and protein loss.
