This is sometimes used to trick the audience or characters into believing that someone is dead who is still alive, as they never found the ''rest'' of the body. Said character may later show up with a prosthesis in the place of the missing body part, or a new outfit or weapon, if all that was found was their mangled accessories.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_George_Haigh John George Haigh]], the Acid Bath Murderer, dissolved his victims in sulphuric acid.

* Common for burning tanks, especially when a tank explodes. Occasionally happily subverted, when a crew member managed to escape shortly before the explosion, ended up as an unrecognised wounded in a hospital and was mistakenly reported dead. There was a Soviet WW2 tank commander who had as many as ''five'' empty graves and was still alive by mid-1990s.

* In 2016 a college graduate intending to take a dip in one of the "hot springs" at Yellowstone park slipped into what turned out to be a highly acidic boiling geyser. By the time recovery workers were able to reach him the next day, there was literally nothing left that could be identified as human.
