* In ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', Janet Leigh's character is slashed to death while taking a shower. Camera angles and fast cutting give the impression of a naked body, though no actual nudity is shown.

* In a rare male example, the blind butler in ''Film/MurderByDeath'' is discovered sitting at a desk, naked. When Dora Charleston wonders aloud what anyone would want with a naked body, her husband [[ILoveTheDead whispers into her ear]]. She smirks incredulously and exclaims, "Oh, that's... tacky!"

* Campily {{Exaggerated}} at the beginning of ''Film/TheNiceGuys'' -- a woman's car goes off the road and she crashes in the garden of a young boy who's up sneaking a peek at his dad's magazines. He goes to investigate and finds her sprawled naked on the hood of the car in the exact same pose as the centrefold model, "Misty Mountains"... for it is she. She has just enough time to mutter "how do I look?" before dying of her ([[BeautyIsNeverTarnished presumably internal]]) injuries. In a sweet ending to such a deliberately exploitative scene, the boy covers her body before anyone else can see her like that.

* In ''Film/InterviewWithAVampire'', Creator/KirstenDunst's character hides the naked body of a woman with her dolls, reflecting her inability to ever grow into an adult. In another scene, a theatrical vampire troupe kills a naked woman onstage before an unwitting audience.

There seems to be nothing more dramatic to crime stories than a dead, naked woman. Whether fully or partially nude, dead women are far more likely to be sexualized than males. Often this is justified by the murdered women being the victims of sexual crimes, while other times the purpose seems purely to titillate the audience. Feminist literature is stocked to bursting with analysis of the UnfortunateImplications of this trend.
