The recent news about D.B. Cooper
and the FPP on the Zodiac Killer
have me wondering: What major crimes (if any?) have been solved after the death of the perpetrator?

It's easy to picture; the killer dies and the landlady goes to pack up his things. In amongst the piles of newspapers and broken tvs she finds trophies from his victims, or millions in unaccounted for cash, a bag of molars, or some other smoking gun. Does this every happen?
I am looking for examples where a major crime was solved, with little uncertainty, after the death of the perpetrator.
