Default Warrant when complainant is now deceased

Caught a warrant a couple of years ago (2014) and it has never been acted upon as far as ajudication. In the meantime (2016) the complaintant is now deceased.

What happens as to the status of the warrant? Will it still be considered an active case?

Until such time as the State elects to dismiss the charge, it remains active. Not all conduct requires a living, breathing Complainant in order to prove up the elements of the offense.

The warrant is active until you are arrested. After your arrest, the charge could be dismissed, or you may be tried. They may have sufficient evidence of your guilt without the complainant, or not. Suggest if you are thinking of turning yourself in, you speak to a criminal attorney as the prosecutor will likely resist bail while they decide how to proceed if there is any indication that you knew there was a warrant for you.
