I remember reading about David Pouliot (suspect in murder of Holly Piirainen) and Nicholas Stofer (abducted and murdered his neighbor Alie Berellez in the early 90s).

There's a lot of similarities between two cases - both guys were never convicted of apparent crimes they did (I don't think that any of them even spent any time in jail, for that matter) and they both died of drug overdose.

Now, what I'm curious about - could it be that an overdose serves as an indirect admission of guilt? Not that it changes much now that all of them are dead and now was really convicted for heinous crimes, but I can't help but wonder....
