murder conviction

Murder conviction without a body

In criminal law, a murder conviction without a body is when someone is convicted of murder and the victim is never found. Historically, cases of this type are hard to prove that murder did occur since there is no body, forcing the prosecution to rely on other evidence. Despite that fact, convictions do occur.
