In the U.S. a security guard named Richard Jewell was identified by name in the news media as a prime suspect in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bombing. He subsequently was cleared and had some success with libel lawsuits against CNN and other outlets. The Jewell case has arguably made the American media a little more cautious about reporting on active criminal investigations in the two decades since.
