Murderers Run Amok at Yellowstone

Yellowstone’s ‘Zone of Death’: The 50-square-mile district in Idaho where ‘you can get away with murder’ because it has no people and no one to sit on a jury

  •  A small 50-square-mile section of Yellowstone National Park sits in Idaho
  • This area is called the ‘Zone of Death’ because you can get away with crimes
  • This is because of a loophole in the Sixth Amendment regarding a jury 
  • It says a person is entitled to a jury from the state and district where the crime was committed
  • However, Zone of Death has a zero population and crimes would be dismissed
