Generic "examples" are not allowed.
** Preferably near another village, one assumes. * Whenever kids are playing and one starts crying expectantly, the kid who comes closer to see what happened will be usually accused of causing it.

** An episode of ''CSINewYork'' has a woman found standing by, and stained with blood from, a man who'd been acquitted of raping her. She was a nurse who, even though the man ''had'' raped her, was actually trying to see whether he could be saved. The stabbing had been done by a vigilante. * In the 90s live-action ''{{Zorro}}'', a laborer drives away the man who killed his employer with his musket shortly before the Alcalde arrives. Seeing a man killed by a gunshot wound and a man with a recently fired gun (And with the only other witness to the actual incident unconscious and unable to testify), the Alcalde decides that the laborer killed his employer and [[KangarooCourt does his best to railroad him to a prompt hanging]]. Meanwhile, everyone else in Los Angeles does whatever they can to delay the execution until the victim's daughter can regain consciousness and testify to what actually happened.

* Partly subverted in the climax of Hitchcock's ''Film/Frenzy'' in which an escaped convict doing hard time for ''the exact same crime'' is found bending over the body of a strangled girl. "I didn't..." he cries. But... the inspector already knows...

* Major point of the setup in the FridgeLogic-prone ''DoubleJeopardy''. The wife is found on the boat her husband just purchased, the boat is covered in blood, and the Coast Guard discovers her holding the knife. No body is found. The evidence at trial includes a radio message that her husband sent, saying his wife was trying to kill him. There is no mention as to whether the blood found on the boat was tested. To convict her, the jury would have to believe that she went crazy, stabbed her husband multiple times, let him radio for help, kept stabbing him, dumped him overboard and then stood around holding the murder weapon. Well, people seldom act calmly and rationally when they commit bloody domestic murders.

* In ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', Keiichi stumbles upon the disemboweled corpse of Rika while bringing Satoko to get some clothes. He realizes that crows are feeding on the body and waves his axe (brought along for an entirely separate reason) to scare them away. While waving it around, he drops it in the blood and picks it up. Predictably, Satoko comes back and freaks out. The best part? When she runs away, Keiichi chases after her, insisting he's not the killer while ''carrying the same blood soaked axe''. To be fair, neither Keiichi nor Satoko is in the right mind at that point.

->''Anyone else may be the murderer. The Grand Lama of Tibet, maybe, or the lady principal of a girls' seminary three thousand miles away. But not--trust the novelist!--not the man with the gun in his hand, who is leaning over the still quivering corpse.''
