In a follow-up to yesterday's post about a no-body homicide involving two University of Florida students, the suspect in this case has made somewhat of a confession.
The suspect, who has been charged with first-degree murder even though no body has been recovered, has admitted to police that he beat the alleged victim until he was unconscious. The suspect stated that he then left the alleged victim in a wooded area.
Even without a body, the case against the accused is growing stronger and stronger. Prosecutors can proceed against suspects in murder cases even if no body is found. Unfortunately for the accused, this statement he has provided may be exactly what the prosecution needs to get a conviction.
With the physical evidence and the statements, a body is not required.
More proof why you should never speak to police if suspected of committing a crime.
