There is a lot of speculation about what really happened to missing Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of the Saudi Arabia regime.

On Thursday, Fox News host Shep Smith wondered about the fate of Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman since committing a murder is against their law.

Smith detailed the government's gruesome beheading process.

"In Saudi Arabia, the punishment for murder is death, period. Beheading to be specific. By law, executions normally happen at 9:00 a.m. In a public square done by a professional executioner with a sword," Smith said.

He added, "Not just for murder. Also for rape, terrorism, treason, espionage, and atheism. Sometimes after the sword takes off the head, the body is crucified. In 2009, the Saudi Gazette reported after a gang leader was convicted of robbing a jewelry store, the court sentenced him to a beheading followed by crucifixion. The headless body nailed to a cross and left in public for three days."

"Could a member of the royal family face execution?" Smith questioned. "Two years ago the king ordered the execution of a young prince who shot and killed a man in a brawl. It's not a regular occurrence, but it's also not without precedent. That's where the Saudi law stands," he concluded.
