    I've noticed this too. Whenever someone is murdered, commits suicide or dies naturally the news and papers always say they were amazing people loved by everybody. By sheer balance of probability, this can't be true. Most of them are most likely just average, not saint-like beings whose deaths are mourned by the world entire.
