I would have been thinking that people who have been put to death by God would not come back since they were kind of directly judged by God.

Jude 7: In the same manner, Sodʹom and Go·morʹrah and the cities around them also gave themselves over to gross sexual immorality* and pursued unnatural fleshly desires;+ they are placed before us as a warning example by undergoing the judicial punishment of everlasting fire

On the other side:
Matth 10:15 Truly I say to you, it will be more endurable for the land of Sodʹom and Go·morʹrah+ on Judgment Day than for that city

As Jesus said, judgment day will be more endurable for the people of Sodom than for those who rejected Jesus. As Jesus also said, had the works that Christ performed in Capernaum been done in Sodom, it would not have been destroyed. That means that the individuals from Sodom will be resurrected. Otherwise, how could they make an appearance during judgment day? But the everlasting fire is pictorial. Sodom and Gomorrah were never rebuilt. They remain in ashes to this day. In that respect that stand as a warning to those who will face everlasting death when Christ comes to judge the world.
