It wasn't to keep them from getting back up. That's just sort of a generic thing to do to a diseased body, to burn it so that the infection won't live on in the dead body. The twitchers they just shot again.

Point is the twitchers had already been shot in the head once.

In both instances of DOTD 2004 where they had twitchers they shot them in the head a second time to put them down permanently.

Which implies one wasn't enough and they could get up again.

This thread was brought back from the dead. Now it should stay that way.
