The media coverage may at times prove to be a hindrance to the fair trial of high-profile murder cases. But sometimes, it is necessary to publicise issues related criminal offences.
The media coverage may prove helpful in nabbing the culprit and punishing the guilty. High- profile murder cases generally involve high-society people, prompting a subdued investigation, where the guilty might escape unscathed.
Media coverage ensures that the case remains in the limelight, thus making it difficult for the guilty to escape.
