Very true Anonymous. Realistically, there is not much chance of catching someone, we are looking at a longshot here… someone is intensely interrogated by the police and they confess (not likely, but you never know).
It’s hard to think of crimes being solved without DNA. Still DNA is a recent phenomena; we seemed to have done alright for close to 5,000 years.
Here’s what I would hope for; that we are able to investigate someone down to the point where there is very little reasonable doubt that they committed this crime. Though justice would not be achieved because of lack of legal proof, it would be enough for me to simply know what happened.
