The details of os.kill() on Windows have been discussed extensively for years in various issues such as bpo-26350, bpo-23948, and bpo-42962. But the problem of the missing return statement is always overwhelmed by discussion of the egregiously bad design of this function and its misuse, which depends on bugs in WinAPI GenerateConsoleCtrlEvent() when passed a PID that is not a process group ID and/or not attached to the console.
