* The LosAngeles County Coroner's Office [[http://www.lacoroner.com Gift Shop]] uses one of these as a logo on some items. One of their early big sellers was a black beach towel with a near-life-sized white outline.

* Justified in ''The Case Of The Toxic Spell Dump'', a ''{{Magitek}}'' novel set on a parallel Earth, because the chalk is a mystical substance that's intended to preserve the integrity of psychic evidence. Likewise, crime-scene tape is enchanted to ward off tamperers or the curious from the site of an investigation.

* ''Manga/AllyOfJustice'' plays this for laughs when a co-worker asks Makiko to reserve a spot for the office-outing's flower viewing in the park. She keeps a spot free by drawing a chalk outline beneath a tree and most people run away screaming from the location.

* ''BeavisAndButthead'': One episode revolved around the title duo walking into a recently vacated crime scene that had one of these. Butthead had been pressing Beavis's BerserkButton during the whole episode and after a fight, ends up lying exactly inside the outline as Beavis stands over him with the murder weapon.

* Done in the 'SpongeBobSquarePants'' episode "Accidents Will Happen" to show where Squidward allegedly fell while fetching Krabby Patty buns in the storeroom. He wasn't killed-- in fact, the evidence shows he wasn't even hurt, just faking.
