* ''Series/TheNewAvengers'': Happens to Steed twice in "Medium Rare" as part of a FrameUp. The first time, he sent to a DoomedAppointment and arrives just after the man he was supposed to meet has been murdered, and seconds before internal security arrives. The second time, he happens to walk him on a murder the killer was planning on framing him for. The killer knocks him out and leaves him beside the body with the murder weapon in his hand.

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' Erika takes this attitude towards Natsuhi when she's found in the same room as Hideyoshi's dead body. Natsuhi didn't kill him, but Erika continues to insist that she's the culprit, and the rest of the arc ends up being one long TraumaCongaLine for her.

Added DiffLines:

*** This example is also complicated by the fact that there are ways to detect what the last spell(s) cast by a wand were, which would probably vindicate Harry since neither his nor Cedric's wands cast the ''Avada Kadavra'' that killed Cedric; Fudge also, despite his paranoia, didn't seem to jump to that conclusion (considering Harry more an AttentionWhore with issues than a straight murderer), which perhaps further cleared Harry's name in an official capacity. Until Voldemort was properly exposed it would've been down to personal opinion whether he killed Cedric or not.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', Barry Allen's father was accused of his wife's murder when the police arrived, with even his friend Joe West not believing his innocence for years. In this case it was more justified: firstly, Henry Allen was found with the bloody knife in hand, kneeling over her body - being a doctor, he was trying to reset her heart with it and probably wasn't thinking clearly - and secondly Barry's story about the real murderer was too fantastical to be taken seriously - everyone thought his mind conjured the story to block out the truth as a means of coping with the obvious trauma. Unusually for this trope, Dr. Allen wasn't overly focused on clearing his own name and was at peace with spending his remaining years in prison (his son is a different story); his primary concern was for Barry to move on with his life.

** 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...
