Spray-Paints face as a disguise

2009: in order to disguise himself while robbing a phone store, Thomas James spray-painted his face gold. He later began having trouble breathing and died.

It's not clear to me if he actually died because of the spray paint, though it must have been a contributing factor. His accomplice, who also spray-painted his face, was apparently fine.

Either way, spray-painting your face doesn't seem like much of a disguise. It reminds me of those guys who tried to conceal themselves from surveillance cameras by rubbing lemon juice all over their faces.

Was his nickname "Goldie"?

He received a 2009 Darwin Award, of course (for improving our gene pool by removing himself from it).

When spray painting your head, do not inhale.
