Hey, does anyone know which CSI episodes are discussed in the "Suicide" part of the trope? I kinda like the show (even for how ridiculous it can get at times), so i'd like to see the episodes. Especially the framing one. It was like, what, sevenfold covering...

I believe that the second one is "Who Shot Sherlock?"

And the first one is "Kill Me If You Can"

A lot of the examples here (including two from Real Life) are of the "hunting accident" variety. Is this common enough to be a subtrope?

These removed by Man Called True:

  • The JFK assassination was rife with strange suicides.
    • Hank Killam, a husband of one of Ruby's dancers, committed suicide by throwing himself through a plate glass window face first off the street in Miami.
    • Betty Mooney, one of Ruby's girls, hung herself in her jail cell by using her leopard-skin tights.
    • Lt. William Pitzer, who took the original autopsy photos of JFK's head wound (that were later doctored) was found dead of a gunshot wound which was ruled "self-inflicted", with a .45 pistol is his right hand. He was left handed.
    • Meanwhile, former CIA agent Gary Underhill was found shot through the left side of his head. He was right handed.
How much "proof" is needed to make it to the trope page? The wrong handedness would be suspicious enough. Even if one goes for the suicide disguised into murder disguised into suicide route.

What is the "trope-etymology" of the title?

If this is split it ought to be along the lines of "Alice killed Bob, made it look like something else and is now being smug about it" and the more snarky "Bob got shot 16 times, obviously he fell onto a box of bullets". Accident/murder/suicide shouldn't matter within that context.

This is still pretty true almost four years after the fact.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
