Piggy is squished.

When Roger releases the boulder from above, it smashes into Piggy,

shattering the conch and pitching Piggy over the cliff to his death below. His body is carried out to sea by a wave.



Here is a rather disturbing quote,

"His head opened and stuff came out and turned red." Piggy's brain, that incredible resource is reduced to "stuff". The irony is tough to take.
