    Answered . Unless I'm missing something there would not be a case to reopen. Both the killer and the victim died, unless what you are really talking about is to have a police investigation reopened because of evidence indicating it was a double homicide. So if that is what you are intending by your question it would make sense to bring the new information to the attention of the investigating law enforcement agency.

    Answered . Re-opened from what?

    I agree with my colleague -- clearly the deceased are not subject to prosecution so who's left?

    In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship.... more
