The war in Iraq has killed somewhere between 8,000 and 194,000 civilians 

So the authors of a survey on Iraqi casualties go ahead and estimate that the war has killed about 98,000 civilians.

Since the number of casualties must be nonnegative, I'm going to guess that the probability density function for their estimate is very bottom-heavy instead of being Gaussian.
