I'd use the word lynch because it seems to me that if there's an extra-judicial execution that involves hanging, that's a lynching. Also, I'd rather start out using that kind of discourse as a tactical measure to frame the debate.

But on the other hand, I could see how it would depend on one's definition of lynch, or how another person wouldn't want to risk being inflammatory.

Yeah, it put me in mind of the killing of the abortion protester in Michigan. The right jumped on it as a politically-motivated murder and turned out to be wrong. Once having said it, though, they were reluctant to back down.

it's also possible that he was just a random guy gotten killed, but the killer gave him something to eat before the killing
