The episode is inspired by the Martha Moxley case, including allusions to the name of the main protagonist Michael Sarno (based on Michael Skakel) and the name of the murder victim Mary Beth Mosley (based on Martha Moxley). Other detail elements of the real-life murder are alluded, including the popularity of the murder victim and the manner of her death, the failed initial investigation and subsequent opening of the cold case, and the prominence of the Sarno family (who are in-laws of the Kennedy family).
