For my story, I was thinking that one of the characters could fake his death, with the intention of his plan being to manipulate other people into avenging his death. However, would these people team up to avenge his death, and go after the framed "murderer", if they did not have a dead body? I mean he could fake his death in a way, that he looks dead, such as faking his kidnapping, and then make a video, and have him appear to be killed by someone on the video. It would be a ransom video made by the kidnapper... and then his body is never found. But would the people he is manipulating into avenging him, be driven to that extreme, if they didn't have a found body to confirm his death, but he has only disappeared from some time, with the only evidence being a ransom video?
