I hope that I am interpreting your question correctly.

It was quite obvious that they murdered him considering that they did it in a public place: the senate house. The conspirators all ganged up on him after he refused to pardon Cimber.

After the conspirators assassinated him, they went about the streets yelling "Liberty! Freedom! Tyranny is dead! Run hence, proclaim, cry it about the streets." (Act III scene i lines 78-79)

Furthermore, after the assassination of Julius Caesar, Marcus Brutus gave a speech to the Roman citizens giving the reasons for why Caesar had to die listing ambition as Caesar's tragic flaw.
