"TRENTON, N.J. (AP) _ Robert Zarinsky, the first person in New Jersey convicted of*** murder without a body*** for evidence and a suspect in several other unsolved murders in the state, has died in prison. He was 68.
Zarinsky died at 8:25 p.m. Friday in the hospice unit at South Woods State Prison in Bridgeton, said Deidre Fedkenheuer, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Corrections. An exact cause of death was not given, but officials said Saturday that Zarinsky had suffered from "major respiratory issues" before his death.
He had been in failing health in recent years, and during a March court appearance _ where he pleaded not guilty in the slaying of a 13-year-old girl in 1968 _ Zarinsky told a judge that he had pulmonary fibrosis and only had about six months to live."
This story kind of jumped out at me....perhaps Casey Anthony will be convicted ***without a body*** too. Apparently it DOES happen.
