* Used by [[ActionFashionista Rarity]] during an episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' [[ClearTheirName to clear Rainbow Dash's name of a alleged crime]].

* The ''RetrievalArtist'' series of sci-fi detective novels has Noelle [=DeRicci=], a detective with the Armstrong lunar police force, whose ability at deciphering crime scenes compares favorably with that of any TV CSI. Pity that she's often the OnlySaneWoman on the scene.

Don't put examples in trope descriptions
The trope name comes from the 1993-94 PC game series ''VideoGame/EagleEyeMysteries'', a detective-themed EdutainmentGame series; in particular, the second game had a feature where the glowing boxes that usually denoted witnesses or clues could be turned off, forcing the player to be that much more observant of the scenery in looking for clues. The series itself also required the player to select the best clues that told the facts, proved or disproved witness statements, and generally painted a plausible picture of what happened and why.
