You are not giving the western MSM credit when credit is due. You see. The western MSM NEVER lied about this. Surprised!
Let me explain.
The story of the "dead" guy was all started by the used condoms (probably with guidance from MSM and NED). And the western MSM cleverly only "report" on it something like:
"Reports" of demonstrators killed outside subway station. See how just one word changes the whole picture. They are merely "hearing" reports of missing person. Meanwhile the used condoms carrying on their antics outside the subway station with offerings to the dead etc. To reinforce the story that someone was killed there. The MSM, are of course happy to snap up all the photos, and don't forget they are still merely reporting!
This is how the western propaganda works. It's subtle.
China can't do that? I don't see a problem.
