I just thought of something that I wanted to ask you. When my daughter's killer was caught 8 years after the murder he had to be tried according to the laws of the year that the murder occured instead of according to the laws of the year he was caught. What happens when a missing person has been murdered but they aren't found for a long time...and then the killer is eventually caught OR the person is found but the killer isn't caught for a long time. By what years laws is the killer tried? Is he tired by the laws of the year the person went missing/murdered or is he tried by the laws of the year he is caught? It makes a huge difference. My daughter's killer got 27 yrs but if he had been tried by the laws of 2002...when he was caught... he would have gotten LWOP or the death penalty. I think it is so wrong when a killer is tried according to the laws of the year the murder actually took place. He is actually being rewarded for not getting caught and then he gets a lesser sentence then he should get. Any killer should be tried by the laws of the year he is caught in. What do you think and how can this be changed?
