What would happen if the only remaining and main suspect of a murder were comatose or dies as well too?

A murder took place and as police are gathering up a couple of suspects, all tested negative on the DNA. Then it narrows down to the main and only culprit who is hiding.

Scenario 1: The suspect got into an unrelated accident and either is in a permanent vegatable state or will be forever mentally retarded if he/she wakes up.

Scenario 2: Same thing but the culprit either got run over by a car and killed or shot to death in yet another different crime.

Scenario 3: Culprit commits suicide.

Would that be technically a closed case?

  • Scenario 1. The defendant is incompetent to stand trial because he cannot assist in his defense. He is committed to a state institution for the criminally insane until he recovers sufficiently to stand trial.

    Scenario 2 and 3. If the investigation confirms that the suspect was guilty of the murder, it s a closed case.

    • No he will get judged in the afterlife by GOD?

    • @RIPGagers We will ALL be judged in the life hereafter. Of course, your response is correct, but I was trying to restrict myself to the question that was asked.

  • As long as his guilt isn't established, the investigation goes on until the D. A. stops it.

  • sigh, "Mentally Retarded" is a very offensive term to use for someone who's brain damaged,

    Mentally disabled people are born like that, not

    • Well I was writing fast about the case. But yes, some people are born with mental disabilities while other undergo that after an accident.

    • >8 O Mentally disabled people are born like that, others are not mentally disabled , they are ill

  • Remains open.
