    UK - Julie Pacey, 38, Grantham, Lincs, 26 Sept 1994

    An actor who played the suspect in the 1994 sexual assault and strangulation of Grantham, UK mother Julie Pacey has now had a dna sample taken after the 'Crimewatch' show was re-aired. 53-year-old Steve Watson, who lived only 15 miles from the crime scene, bears a startling resemblance to the police sketch issued at the time.

    Watson says he was told back in '94 that his face would not be shown but a glimpse of it was and he was immediately accused by locals of being a killer and an officer even tried to arrest him during filming. After the show aired again last month as part of a cold-case investigation, people called in with his name.

    Watson says he was happy to provide police with the dna sample as they are only doing their job - butt he wishes he had been warned the show was being aired and guesses he will be a suspect until the results are in and clear him.

    The photo shows Watson acting the role.

    That would be a real bummer if you didn't do it. Trying to help (presumably) and that's the thanks you get.
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    Startling resemblance alright.

    From my casual television watching observation, most actors hired to portray suspects really don't resemble the suspect that closely...but are more anecdotal in appearance. I think it's extremely strange to have an actor re-enacting a crime that looks nearly identical to the sketch of the suspect.
