So, how can one tell if a senior North Korean official has actually been put against a wall and shot?

A little bit of North Korea talk from The Asia Times OnLine

Apparently there are always questions about whether the high NK officials we think were executed really were executed.
Those who do not deal with North Korea seldom realize how little outside observers know about its high politics. North Korean media stretch the definition of state secret to an extent that would likely appear excessive even to Joseph Stalin. There have been numerous cases where North Korean media chose not to report some very important (and, interestingly, very public) events that had a profound impact on the lives of every North Korean.
What a horrible place.
