Excuse Me?

What do you suppose an "ex-suspect" is? Someone once "suspected" of something (oh, say, a crime, for example), who is no longer "suspected" of committing that crime. Not being a "suspect" may not be quite the same thing as being innocent, but it's a step in the right direction.

But English -- she is the slippery language, no? Oh, yes!
