Is like a metaphore for euthanasia.

The word you are searching for euphemism. And no it's not. It's murder on a tiny island that was greatly damaged in an earthquake 15 years ago.

""They said he and the victim were acquainted.""

acquainted??? so she probably knew him went out to meet him very early in the morning !?? and he was waiting to meet her, sounds very important or romantic.

What the 'blank' is that? Air that the guy left behind? Pocket lint? Toe jam odor?
