It would make a good murder mystery to have lighting as a murder weapon. The problem is that it's not clear how the murder would be detected to be investigated in the first place, unless someone stumbles on the laser/rocket used to trigger the strike, which leaves little mystery to be solved.

I imagine it would be fairly easy to stumble upon a laser tower
