63. You can't have a crime against a person without a victim

Sep 2018

So in many ways, yes.

Now if we find property that appears to be stolen we can go check and see if the owner was unaware of the theft. But then still they would have to file a complaint before anything could be done.

But in this case obviously the victim is known and knows she can file a complaint at any time. They can’t force her to and shouldn’t badger her to.
