Even though Wayne was publicized to have lost everything, he still had more than many. Many of the wealthy died or nearly died during those almost 3 months during Bane's rise to power and execution of the next era of western civilization.
So in the end the city would have simply brushed Wayne's death aside as another victim who died by Bane's hand or even his own after he had lost everything.
That makes sense, thanks!
