1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Sucked Offed", Way to Die #301, is the third death to be featured in "The Good, The Bad, and the Dead", which aired on March 8, 2009.


A convicted murderer and drug dealer named Carmen had been sentenced to life in a Texas female prison with no chance of parole, but she took her chances and escaped, hoping to open a meth lab after crossing the border into Mexico. On the run from authorities, she ducks into a lake swarming with leeches. The lake was at a chilly 55°F, which made it a perfect cover for the leeches to suck away at her skin. As soon as the officers leave over an hour later, Carmen crawls out of the water, but is too weak to move due to hypothermia and blood loss, resulting in death from exposure, sending the monstrous criminal to hell where she belongs to.

"With no place left to run, she hit the ice-cold water. But without knowing it, Carmen had jumped out of the frying pan, and into the fire, straight into the clutches of a hidden enemy..."
