- "was stabbed to death in Gloucester

- "If you die, a
relative or friendcan request for your Facebook profile to become memorialised" - nope, anyone can report a death to Facebook, not just a friend or a family member. It can be a complete stranger (which is part of the problem).
I know the link says "a family member or friend" but at no point are you required to provide any proof of being a friend or a family member - hence the ability of anyone to fill up this form.
- "Whoever requests it will have to give Facebook some
proof that you have died, such as a death certificate" - nope, for requesting to memorialise an account you don't need to present a death certificate, only "a link to or copy of an obituary or other documentation about the death". You're requested to prove that you're a family member and to provide a death certificate only if you're asking to remove a profile altogether - not if you're only trying to have it memorialised.
