** Also used once as a clue in "Mr. Monk Takes a Vacation". [[spoiler:It was the maids who killed one of the other maids to cover up their committing insider trading by viewing the belongings of business men staying at the hotel.]] Monk figured it out because [[spoiler:they were the only people who could clean up a room that fast]].

* ''Series/{{ER}}''. Carter treats a doctor who runs an inner-city clinic, visiting him there to check up on him and give him his medication. When the man returns to the hospital a few weeks later, Carter gives him a generous donation, but is stunned to find the clinic completely deserted when he visits again. The cop with him informs him that contrary to what the man told him, the clinic had been there only a few ''weeks'', not the twenty-something years the guy claimed.

Technological advances may eventually make this trope obsolete; after all, who today (in the First World, at least) doesn't have a cell-phone with a digital camera feature? [[CellPhonesAreUseless Of course, writers already hate cell phones.]] In the rare case this ''is'' used, expect there to be a problem with the photograph--or the phone--that makes it useless. (If the photograph doesn't show the unusual thing at all, but is otherwise okay, either the phenomenon is immune to photography, or [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness another trope]] is in play.)

* In the first chapter of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', Keiichi stayed home from school because he was starting to get suspicious of some classmates. Two of the girls from his school showed up that night to bring him some food and tell him they hoped he was feeling better. While eating the food, he choked on a sewing needle baked into a pastry. After having a talk with the police, the half-eaten snack containing the needle was nowhere to be found. Its unexplained disappearance would be creepier if it weren't the sort of thing his parents could've reasonably thrown out with the garbage. The hypodermic syringe is another, slightly creepier case in this arc, although at that point, of course, no-one was left to actually say ItWasHereISwear. This trope is arguably subverted in both cases since [[spoiler: the sewing needle and hypodermic syringe actually ''were'' paranoid delusions]].
