On 4 April 2003, South Korean Television Channels MBC,
YTN and SBS reported the Bill Gates was murdered during
a charity event in Los Angeles. The local stock market
dipped 1.5% at the news. Less than a half hour later the
News Channels retracted the story. It seems their story
was based on a film “Nothing so Strange”, a fictitious
report on the assassination of the Microsoft Founder. The
film’s promotional site includes writings such as this CNN
mock-up that may have confused the R.O.K. news
agencies... note the date.

"LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Microsoft Corp.
Chairman William H. Gates III was killed (Dec. 2, 1999)
in Los Angeles during an appearance at a charity event
held in MacArthur Park. Hit by two bullets believed to have
been shot from the adjacent Park Plaza Hotel, Gates was
rushed by ambulance to nearby St. Vincent Medical Center,
where doctors declared him dead on arrival at 12:46 p.m.
PST."

Sorry, I thought the words “Rumors” and “Exaggerated”
would deter such false hopes, but I understand the
temptation to clutch on to the phrase “Gates’ Death”.
