The purpose of punishing offenders is not only to have justice, but to deter other crimes. Well, the settlers already took care of the latter reason by Arabs and their property. Now we can let the wheels of justice turn at their normal pace. Note that as long as the murderers are not caught, there is always the fear that they may try again. Such fear is not a negative factor. The Itamar settlers are deep into Samaria, and will have to leave their settlement once a peace deal is signed, even according to Netanyahu. So this fear may help softening them up and perhaps even induce new settlers not to come there. In short, a bonanza for all forward thinking Israelis.
