Actor Steve Watson, shown here playing the part of a murder suspect in a Crimewatch reconstruction, has been fingered as the suspect in the murder of Julie Pacey
A Crimewatch actor, who played a suspect in a murder reconstruction 21 years ago, said he is “in limbo” after he was accused of being the killer.
Steve Watson, 53, appeared in the reconstruction of the 1994 murder of Julie Pacey, which was reshown on BBC One earlier this year.
Officers took his DNA after viewers told them he was the “killer” shown in the reconstruction.
The BBC has apologised saying it tried to contact Mr Watson before the show.
Julie Pacey, 38, was found dead in Grantham, Lincolnshire, but her killer has never been found.
