Person Schema. Among many other properties, you do have DeathDate and DeathPlace that would indicate if the person still lives: https://schema.org/Person.
And then, as mentioned by Hans, you have the "Character" Schema that will designate fictitious characters, and provide another slew of properties.
Hope that brings some water to the mill.

Good afternoon,

I'm not an expert, but https://schema.org/character [https://schema.org/character] is for fictional characters.
Then, there's also https://schema.org/Intangible [https://schema.org/Intangible], and https://schema.org/object [https://schema.org/object].
The https://schema.org/Class [https://schema.org/Class] type also exists.

Yours sincerely,
Hans Polak

Hello Everyone,
The schema for Person is described to be applicable to:
“A person (alive, dead, undead, or fictional).”
But… what Property of Person, or any other Thing for that matter, indicates whether the Thing actually exists, is instanced in reality, has real presence as opposed to being only entirely imaginary or fictional?
Shouldn’t this be explicit, not implied by other Properties or some other Type or Sub-type?
