  • Date/Year: Prior to "Tape 1, Side A" (September 9, 2017)
  • Explanation: Died from Car Crash — Jeff left Jessica Davis' party and got into a car accident. People thought it was because he was drunk as alcohol was found in his car, however, Hannah Baker informed everyone on the tapes in "Tape 5, Side B" that Sheri Holland had knocked down a stop sign on the road before the incident, and believed that she may have inadvertently caused the car accident between Jeff and Mr. Cantrell—because neither would have stopped without the sign—that led to Jeff's death.

  • Character: Montgomery de la Cruz
  • Date/Year: Died in "Let the Dead Bury the Dead" (2018)
  • Explanation: Killed by a fellow prisoner — Montgomery was arrested and sent to prison for raping Tyler Down. It was later revealed by Deputy Standall that while in prison, Montgomery was found dead in his cell. After Clay was part of a cover-up that pinned Bryce's murder on Montgomery to protect Alex, he began to hallucinate Montgomery out of guilt, the hallucination told him that another prisoner stabbed him three times after the prisoner was told that Montgomery was in for being a child molester. Due to Clay hallucinating Monty telling him this, it may not be exactly what happened, but it also may be the writers way of telling viewers how Monty died.
