CORPUS DELICTI - The body of the offence; the essence of the crime.
It was a general rule not to convict unless the corpus delicti can be established, that is, until the dead body has been found. Instances have occurred of a person being convicted of having killed another, who, after the supposed criminal has been put to death for the supposed offence, has made his appearance - alive. The wisdom of the rule is apparent; but in order to insure justice, in extreme cases, it may be competent to prove the basis of the corpus delicti by presumptive, but conclusive, evidence.

Guilt of the accused should be proved beyond reasonable doubt
(Expert) 17 August 2008
it means that before seeking to prove that the accused has committed the crime it must be established that the crime charged has been committed. for example in theft cases it has to be established first that the property has been stolen. Similarly in murder that somebody has been killed. The strongest proof in murder is the body or vital part of the victim by which he could be identified, in absence of any such evidence direct evidence may also come from a person who saw the killing or that the murderer confesses his crime.

Dear Smith, Let me add one thing.In the famous Rajan murder case in kerala State,which resulted in the resignation of the then Home Minister Sri. K. Karunakaran, there was no direct evidence of killing the engg. Student Rajan by the Police and there was no recovery of the dead body. Still the High court convicted the accused.

Corpus delicti (plural: corpora delicti) (Latin: "body of crime") is a term from Western jurisprudence which refers to the principle that it must be proven that a crime has occurred before a person can be convicted of committing the crime.
