    out/ wound up dead

    School is almost out for Audrey, but the panic attacks are just beginning. Because Audrey told a lie and now her classmate Ana, has wound up dead.

    What do "School is out for Audrey" and "wound up dead" mean?

    Can I say "wound up dying"? Is it the same with "wound up dead"?

    Not in the above. However, it can work in other contexts.
