Murder vs homicideEdit

We had a discussion Talk:2021_Atlanta_spa_shootings#Category:murder here about when to categorize something as a murder. It was decided that it would be a violation of BLPCRIME to categorize something as a murder prior to a conviction. I'm asking if we should rename the categories to homicide. So instead of Category:Murder change it to Category:Homicide, Category:Murder in 2021 to Category:Homicide in 2021, and so forth to be more consistent with BLPCRIME and be more inclusive? I'm willing to do the work.Yousef Raz (talk) 02:13, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

Jeffrey Epstein RfCEdit

There is a new RfC as to whether the cause of death should be listed as "disputed" in the infobox of the Jeffrey Epstein article, if you have any thoughts, please participate at Talk:Jeffrey_Epstein#RfC:_Epstein_death_infobox. Thanks. Hemiauchenia (talk) 13:26, 22 May 2021 (UTC)

Michael Taylor (demoniac)Edit

I'm looking for guidance on moving the article Michael Taylor (demoniac). The disambiguation, demoniac, seems absolutely inappropriate for encyclopedic tone, though I just can't find precedent for this type of notability. I'm guessing Michael Taylor (murderer) or Michael Taylor (criminal) could work, but I imagine this project has guidance/precedence. — HTGS (talk) 09:25, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

It also occurs to me that the article could be better written if about the case and his exorcism, rather than about him as a person. This would, among other outcomes, solve the issue of the article title. Please weigh in if you have thoughts. — HTGS (talk) 09:28, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
