Concept.png Gunshot 
(death cause)Rdf-entity.pngRdf-icon.png
A common death cause, especially in the US

A gunshot can be used to frame a murder of journalists, investigators and whistleblowers as suicide or robbery.

Selected Examples

People who probably have been murdered and have their death been framed as suicide afterwards are:

  • Mark Minnie, who was shot dead nine days after publishing a book about a 1980s VIPaedophile network involving members of the South African government. It was ruled a suicide, but he told people close to him that if anything like this happened, to treat it as murder.
  • The death of Vince Foster is a well known suicide that is widely believed to have been murder.
  • Steve Kangas was a spook turned whistleblower who was one of the first political campaigners on the internet.


In July 2020, CBS12 reported that a victim of a gunshot to the head in Florida was counted as a COVID-19 death.[1]

Multiple gunshot suicide

A shot in the head or heart is commonly understood to be immediately fatal. But one should also consider that aiming in such a situation may not be very accurate and people who are shooting themselves, may survive one or more bullets; a suicide with 4 gunshots to the head has been reported.[2] So if somebody died by two gunshots (or more) to the head, it still is possible that it was a suicide; more information is needed to assess the situation.
