    Bob and Fred would be dead as the meaning of DEAD still remains the same and the wish of John will kill the other two.

    Alive = Dead     so it is also possible that Dead  = Alive

    1. Fred will be alive
    2. then Fred will be dead after bob wish.
    3. Then Fred and bob will be alive after john wish as dead means alive now.

    So Finally all three are alive.
