It happens sometimes.
There was a very strange case close to my hometown some years ago where the Police find the killed girl in the woods just a day after she died and they were certain who the killer was but he walked free because they could not
determine how she died.
Year 2000, Jerry Michael Williams went missing in Florida and his remains were found in 2017.
On 8 May 2018, police arrested Williams' former wife.
After a four-day trial in December 2018, she was convicted of murder.
Both happens but with the sophisticated forensic labs they have today I would say they can get out something in most of these cases.
How did forensics found on the body help to secure a conviction in the latter case?

They found the body for a start, they performed DNA test to found out who he was, a body was also needed to
determine how he died and when they examined the remains
they found out that he had not drowned, he had been murdered.
