I think it is very clear that he was murdered inside that embassy.
Probably on the orders of a senior member of the dynasty that rule his home country who had once considered him a favourite for decades only to suddenly turn against him after he wrote critical articles.
The english language translations of articles allegedly written by the deceased when he was on friendly terms with the rulers of his country are absolutely horrifying propaganda like pieces and were not intended to portray their author in a favourable light to a US/UK/European based audience.

I would be extremely surprised if any senior Saudi figures are ever be held fully accountable.

Unlikely... Saudi Arabia is a 'high hanging fruit'. Can be reached, with enough time and effort, but it's probably more bother than it's worth.

I'm not accusing a specific individual within the ruling dynasty or singling out mbs.
I think its quite likely that a number of elderly powerful members of the dynasty have established a tradition of ordering violent reprisals against former associates/journalists who displease them- going back decades.
As to identifying and punishing all culprits involved in the murder- its about as likely as Russia admitting their role in the litvinenko & novichok poisonings.
SA has its own rulebook, distinctive traditions and system of governance based on ancient tribal & religious customs.

Saudi Arabia's response was a excellent example of how not to do damage limitation.

He left the consulate.
He accidentally died in a fight.
Okay, our operatives did it. But they were rogue. Wait while we execute a few scapegoats to show the world it wasn't us.
