* Happens early on in ''Series/{{NUMB3RS}}'' with Finn Montgomery, a CalSci student who Charlie knew peripherally. Charlie spends half the episode trying to prove that Finn was murdered before a letter he had mailed to his parents just before his death proves that it really was a suicide.
** Two later episodes have apparent suicides that turn out to have been murders:
*** "Guns and Roses": Nikki Davis, Don's ex-girlfriend, has apparently shot herself in the head. Don is suspicious, especially when he finds out she tried to call him just before she died. Charlie is able to prove that a second person was in the room with her, and DNA helps them determine who. From there, they're able to get motive, which lets them piece together the rest.
*** "Democracy": An old college friend of Charlie's turns up dead in an apparent suicide just after telling him she was afraid for her life after three of her colleagues had all died within a few days of each other. Because of this statement and because of the statistical unlikelihood of four specific people all dying so close together, he requests a second autopsy. Fortunately (for the investigation, at least), it turns out the killer got impatient; he had dosed her with enough alcohol and pills to kill her, but he wanted to be sure she was dead and didn't want to wait, so he smothered her while she was unconscious.

** Miranda Cole, one of the victims in "Weak", is a schizophrenic who's been hanging by a thread for years until she's raped by a man who specifically targets the disabled. Her recollections prove critical in tracking down the rapist, but the final scene of the episode has her doctor telling Benson and Stabler that Miranda had committed suicide.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Young King Tommen Baratheon spends most of his reign a powerless PuppetKing controlled by everyone around him. It all comes to a head when he sees The High Sept utterly destroyed in wildfire, which also kills his wife, his entire royal court, and The High Sparrow, all victims of [[MyBelovedSmother his mother Cersei]]'s machinations. Dumbfounded, he stares at the ruin for several moments. He then takes off his crown and sets it aside for anyone stupid enough to want it for themselves, then climbs into the window frame and quietly dives to his death.

* In the ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' episode "Bully", a corporate boss shoots herself after video footage of her abusing a timid business partner is leaked and her business is ruined. She [[NeverMyFault castigates her late partner, the media, her employees and police]] at a press conference before killing herself, saying it was their fault. It's possibly a reference to the public suicide of former Pennsylvania treasurer R. Budd Dwyer, who shot himself during a press conference (his behavior was more contrite however). This inspired the song "Hey Man Nice Shot" by {{Music/Filter}}.

to:

* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'': Often spurred by somebody crossing the DespairEventHorizon; most often a victim who's given up on seeing justice done or a former suspect who couldn't take the team's usual methods of interrogation.
** A big one is [[spoiler: the mentally ill witness in "Noncompliance" whom Olivia bullies, browbeats and pressures into temporarily modifying his medical routine so he can testify in an especially difficult case. She later finds the dude's lifeless body, as he has hung himself due to both her abusive behavior towards him and the side-effects of said med changes]].
** Another one is "Haystack" - [[spoiler:a child goes missing and his mother hangs herself after an overzealous reporter accuses her of murdering her child during an interview. Stabler promptly chews the reporter out on live TV after the child is found alive. The beginning of this episode eerily mirrors the [[RippedFromTheHeadlines Melinda Duckett case with the reporter being a Expy of Nancy Grace.]]]]

** And on later on in Season 11, when Dean believes that Sam is dead, he outright '''commits suicide''' by overdosing on sleeping pills in order to make a deal with a Reaper (Sam lives in exchange for Dean). Thankfully, he learned that Sam wasn't [[DisneyDeath actually dead]] and managed to return to his body, but this is the first time on the show a major character was shown killing themselves by their own hand.
