This was done by the security system which controlled his house and was his invention. It is later revealed that he himself planned his own murder but intended to be saved by his maid who was late this particular morning because of a traffic jam. By doing so, he wanted to draw suspicion in a series of similar murders on to a competitor in software business.

  • Day Break: What If They Find Him? (2006) [Conrad Detweiler]: Buried alive when his own men use a dump truck to pour a truckload of sand over him, after shooting him in the legs. (His death is undone when the time-loop cycle begins again.) (Thanks to Neil)

  • Day Break: What If It's Him? (2007) [Conrad Detweiler]: Commits suicide by shooting himself with a shotgun in his home. (In this final episode, the time-loop has been broken, so his death is now permanent.) (Thanks to Neil)
  • Breaking Bad: Say My Name (2012) [Mike Ehrmantraut]: Shot in the stomach by Bryan Cranston; he dies after crawling out of his car and sitting by a lake while talking to Cranston.

  • Community: Basic Email Security (2015) [Buzz Hickey]: Dies (off-screen) from unspecified circumstances before the episode begins. Although Jonathan left the show in the prior season, an email seen on Jim Rash's computer has the subject line "Buzz Hickey Memorial Services" indicated his fate (although given the show's style of humor, it's just as likely that the character is alive and has a job as a funeral director).

  • A Tale Dark & Grimm: Chapter the Seventh: Faithful Johannes (2021) [Johannes]: Dies from being mortally wounded by the Devil (Adam Lambert) in the previous episode, Chapter the Sixth Three: Golden Hairs, when the latter impaled him by throwing a stake towards his chest.
