There is, it's called the 'The Life And Times Of Alexis Zorba'. Supposed fiction based on non-fiction, at least partially. For certain parts of that book, your decision on which is which is no less speculative than mine. That you have failed to find references in other books means very little, it's not like such people (if he is indeed guilty) chose to freely talk about those topics at the dinner table with all of their family and friends. But you seem to have bought into that unrealistic notion, which has led you to limit your focus to superficial commonalities and disregard the likelihood of deeper links between the fictional character and the real person he was based on. Further, I find being speculative in the manner I have exhibited as markedly more measured than glorifying a person who, by his own admission, raped women and murdered innocent civilians. That there are attempts to trivialise this (he was only a fictional character, the real guy "probably" didn't do it, he showed remorse, it's a great book, it's a popular movie, etc.) as a basis for rationalisation is beyond ridiculous.

If you were writing a fictional book and some of the main themes were based on real experiences and discussions you had with a personal friend that had since passed away, what would be your motive to randomly include such shameful events in the storyline, with such specificity, and assign them to the character inspired by your friend, at the risk of discrediting his legacy with innuendo, if there was no truth to them? Perhaps you can provide an answer to that question, speculative though it may be.
