Why is there no statute of limitations for murder?


Wiki User

Murder is a crime in America, That does not have a statue of limitations. But I do

not expect that Murder is not a statue of limitations. So, I think, '' No Statue of Limitations on Murder.

In laws, ''In the United States, there are many crime categories which hold no statue of limitations.'' Such as murder, kidnapping, treason, fraud, forgery, embezzlement, crimes against humanity (war crimes). There is no statute of limitations for federal crimes punishable by death, nor for certain federal crimes of terrorism.
