    I got a text from a friend today asking if I watched the news last night.

    I told him I didn't and asked why. Turns out, a man assaulted and raped two women in his city (which is 25 minutes from mine) and the police sketch looks EXACTLY like my friend.

    He wanted to go out downtown tonight, but is scared he would be arrested.

    To make things worse, his car was backed into and the person didn't leave any information. He wanted to file a police report, but was afraid to go to the station, because well, yeah.

    I'm not really asking for advice or wondering what to do, just sharing a story.

    Has anyone else had this happen to themselves or a friend? Maybe not this extreme, but similar?

    In the days after Gianni Versace was killed and the manhunt for Andrew Cunanan was underway, one of my friends asked me if I was living a double life. Then he showed me a picture from that day's USA Today.

    I was rather perturbed, to say the least. Even my father noticed the likeness.

    How about "My doppelganger raped two women"

    Weird. A friend of mine also looked like the sketch of Andrew Cunanan.

    Is your friend particularly distinctive looking? Or is the sketch just sort of a generic dude?

    Yeah, but in fairness, your friend was Andrew Cunanan.

    Your friend is Ryan Leaf?

    Yeah, I don't think those two people look even remotely alike.

    My friend is pretty distinctive looking and the sketch is a ringer for him.


    And the description...

    ...matches him exactly.

    I'd rather not post a photo of him out of respect.

    Damn, F_T, you do look like Cunanan.

    If he's not guilty, I don't see why life doesn't carry on as normal.
