It's pretty good evidence of an unnatural cause of death when you turn up 90 miles away from your home and wash up on shore several months later, with your head and limbs missing. I don't think she went fishing that day, and fell overboard. I also don't think she walked or hitchhiked to the Berkeley marina to commit suicide. Oh, hey! I know! She died a natural death at home, and person or persons unknown decided that a burial in the bay would be nice, so they transported her there.
There have been other cases where no body at all was found, and therefore no cause of death could be established, but a conviction in the case resulted based on, shockingly, circumstantial evidence.

Look, I believe he is guilty, and you believe he is guilty. But the state didn't, in my opinion, prove him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
I think he committed a nearly perfect murder. But I do have a reasonable doubt (as the jurors did, IMHO).
