So, I heard of such cases from some countries in which people get murdered but due to influence from powerful people, it gets labeled as "suicide" in the media and similar sources even with cases that have proof that it in fact was a murder.
Is there any English word that summarizes this "made-up suicide" that may or may not be valid in the following example cases?
They brutally [word]ed him.
Yesterday, x got brutally [word]ed by y.
I am certain that this is not a suicide, this is rather a [word].
This begs the question, how can we prevent this inhumane spree of [word]s?
At the moment, I tried briefly searching it inside a PDF copy of the Oxford Dictionary 2018. I haven't really considered any word for this yet, I don't think any word that is currently in my vocabulary fits the definition, or I fail to remember it right now. I also don't have a "best word" criteria, so simply what matches my sample cases the most will be chosen. Non-compound words would certainly be highly preferred, but compound words are also allowed.
