* Subverted in Finland 2017 when a murderer with a very bizarre ''modus operandi'' - a serial drowner - was caught. He had lured his victims on a fishing trip on which they had gone fishing on a rowboat, then they had drunken heavily, and then he had deliberately capsized the rowboat, leaving his victim to drown (he himself was a good swimmer). Everything had looked like a tragic accident - fishing, heavy drinking, capsized Savonian-style rowboat (which is notoriously unstable), no life vests. He had managed to drown at least five victims until the authorities began to suspect foul play.

* Toward the end of ''Literature/TheGoblinEmperor'', Maia (the eponymous Emperor) inquires of his Lord Chancellor about the remaining family members of a traitor who was sadistically cruel and an all-around terrible person. Besides several sisters, the Lord Chancellor mentions a younger brother who he vaguely remembered dying years back in a hunting accident.

** In the short story "A Leash of Greyhounds", Lady Shantell insists this is what happened to her husband at the hand of his friend, while the friend maintains that he thought he was shoting at a deer. The inquest proves that the man's death really ''was'' an accident, and that he was stupid enough to go hunting in brown pants and boots and a deerskin jacket.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'':''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Given the cut-and-thrust nature of politics in the series, this crops up a fair bit.

In any case, William's hunting partner and long-time acquaintance of both, Walter Tirell, immediately decided that a quick trip and a long stay in France would be a ''really'' good idea. Off the top of his head, and for no specific or suspicious reason.
