3 dimensions to murder exists in all cases. the emotional state & turmoil of the victims families.
First comes the discovery of murders, the second dimension is that of the killers or shall we consider as chief executives of murder.
The third dimension is the trial & punishment for murder.
Sometimes, but rarely considered aspect is the fourth dimension i
Unless a body is found or reason to be believe that a murder has happened, the first dimension like in a first step will not come in to play.
The first dimension also includes the actual act of murder itself. The planning, execution & disposal of body, evidence everything goes in to it.
The second dimension: Killers!
Why should a murder be committed, the motive, factor driving to the act (first dimension) & killers personal history, mind status etc...
The third dimension: Trial & Punishment
Though a killer might escape capture, the trial & punishment can happen in a purely poetic sense.
The act of violence against an individual comes at a price.
The capture of the killer, subsequent evidence gathered from the killer & establishments passing punishments provides the closure to all dimensions in murder.
The remarkable aspect of human society is that the fourth dimension being almost invisible, or left unnoticed.
The way a victims family is "feeling".... who cares about that... isn't it?
