The first job for everyone involves producing a system capable of separating unfounded accusations, innuendo, propaganda, and rumor from responsible reporting. https://conflict-backchannels.com/2013/06/05/when-the-second-row-seat-to-history-aint-so-hot/ Developing information with integrity — in empirical terms, “valid and reliable” data — is an enormous problem wherever social relationships determine what is believed and obscurantism determines what is absent or unknown about subjects (including incidents) of interest.
The subject came up this morning in a Pakistani-oriented Facebook forum in a post motivated by anti-Saudi sentiment. The poster referenced an update or slantwise take on the above referenced story (about a prince who allegedly rapes and murders a woman and dumps her body on the street) and I responded with my findings that first and foremost found no initial congruent local report on the discovery of the body.
