From the June 2011 issue of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine

A creepy man obsessed with a woman who apparently lives in the apartment building across the street begins watching and taking pictures of her. Then he sees/snaps pictures of her murder. But the police come and go, with no investigation. The stalker learns that the police found no body when they entered the apartment, and no body, they say, equals no crime, despite the photos. So the creepy stalker takes it upon himself to find out who the man is who killed the object of his obsession.
