William Bendix (January 14, 1906 - December 14, 1964) was an American film actor. Most Canadians would recognize this at first glance. The badge does not contain the lettering "OPD" but rather "OPP". The badge on Paul's arm in the Sgt Pepper's album is that of the Ontario Provincial Police. The letters "OPD," appearing on a costume in a photograph on the Sgt Pepper album were interpreted variously as standing for "Officially Pronounced Dead" and an indication that Billy Campbell had worked in the Ontario Police Department.

Beatles fans scoured the Beatles' albums for hidden "clues" confirming this, and, demonstrating the human capacity to find meaning where no meaning exists, located dozens of "confirming" nuggets of information. These morsels were concocted together into one more-or-less cohesive tale: that the real Paul, killed by a banana lorry, had been replaced by an actor named either William Campbell or Billy Shears, who had undergone plastic surgery in order to effect a perfect likeness, and who had previously won a Paul McCartney look-alike contest. In October 1969, Russ Gibbs, program coordinator for radio station WKNR-FM in Detroit, began a baseless rumor that Paul McCartney had been killed and replaced by a look-alike. In fact such contests were held, but no William Campbell ever won one. According to this urban legend, a William Campbell won a "Paul look-alike" contest in 1966 and was induced to impersonate Paul after Paul died.

William Shears Campbell is a fictional Paul McCartney look-alike whose purported existence arose from the fevered efforts of conspiracy theorists to find significance in album photos and hidden musical messages during the Paul is Dead hoax in the late 1960s.
