this is the problem with the electric chair, after all..It's widely 
acknowledged to not be an instantaneous death.

People get hit by lightning and survive, for instance.

Unless you physically dissociate the material, you probably can't 
guarantee death.  It's sort of a timely(!) topic, being close to 
Halloween and all... Isn't this the basis for those methods of killing 
vampires.. physically separating all the components so that there's no 
possibility of reanimation (bringing up the interesting thing that some 
of those stories of vampires and zombies probably come from catatonia, etc.)
