You don't have to be important to qualify for either , you could be a politician, drug dealer or just a janitor for either to be applied. Assassinated is usually associated with government or security services , but with murdered it is usually non government linked , as murder is a premeditated issue as a criminal offence. Both the same but are done for different reasons. Sorry about the confusion but you did ask a very good question.
