The fake Slim Shady.
Photos of a suspect were publicized by the Rochester Police Department. The images depict a white man who, according to many social media users, bears an uncanny resemblance to a rap star. The photoset went viral when they hinted at the men's likeness.
The search for the wanted man gained a lot of attention and the police's efforts eventually yielded the desired results. Still, the legal authorities issued an update in order to offer clarity in terms of the identification of the male suspect.
Their status update left no room for anyone to confuse the man in the photo with Slim Shady.
"*****UPDATE: The subject has been identified, and we can confirm it is NOT Marshall Mathers*****
Officer Robinson is looking to identify this male in regards to a criminal trespassing case. If you know the information about this suspect’s identity, please call 603-330-7128 and reference case 18-4300-OF.
Many commenters had quickly referred to the Kamikaze artist by leaving some of his lyrics under the original post:
"He’s probably just going round the outside, round the outside"
"Will the real Slim Shady please fess up"
"Look at him! Just walking around, grabbing his… you know what, flipping the… You know who."
