* A particularly bizarre example happens in ''Fanfic/ThePrayerWarriors'' when Jerry's group raids the temple of Artemis in "[[Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians The Evil Gods Part 1]]." They find a group of "whores" doing "wrong things" to married men and so kill the men and force the women to dig their own graves. Once the women are done, Jerry has them stoned to death, and throws them in their graves, ''but doesn't bury them'', in the hopes that wild animals will eat their bodies.
