Well, the Threshold justice system is like that, in fact. If you kill
someone in the wilderness, with no witnesses, you are not likely to ever
be suspected. Plus, the introduction and the death amnesia system
ensures that the victim cannot "pinpoint" his killer by himself IC even
if the player knows who it was OOC.
