Sgt. Greevy and Det. Logan investigate the rape and murder of 24 year-old Paige Bartlett who is found dead in bed in her apartment. The assault was quite vicious with her larynx having been crushed. The police learn from a friend that Paige worked in real estate and had recently broken up with her boyfriend Ned Loomis. She was seen with another man at a bar the night she was attacked but likely met up with Loomis later on. ADA Stone knows he has a weak case against Loomis and can't use evidence of a previous attack against another woman for which Loomis was never charged. To get a conviction, Stone will need someone who knows Loomis very well. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Based on the case of Robert Chambers, whom was christened the "Preppie Killer" by the press after he strangled 18-year-old Jennifer Levin to death in Central Park in 1986. When questioned by police, Chambers told several different stories about his encounter with Levin, including that he accidentally killed her after she "forced" and "overpowered" him into rough sex, all of which were proven false by the investigators. He eventually pleaded guilty to manslaughter, and served 15 years before being released in February 2003. On August 11, 2008, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office announced that Chambers had pleaded guilty to selling drugs and was sentenced to 19 years in prison. His earliest date of possible release is 2025. See more »

All he has is hearsay
22 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

George Dzundza and Chris Noth get a call on a young girl clinging to life after being strangled and her larynx crushed. Later she passes away.

The girl was a spirited lass who had an active sex life. The night of her death she had sex with two people, one of them her killer.

The police settle on Thomas Calabro who is most unmistakably modeled on Robert Chambers dubbed 'The Preppy Killer' by the tabloid press of the time. One of those strikingly handsome individuals who women and gay men just line up for.

Calabro is from an old money name with a lot of that cash having been spent by a previous generation. He'll enjoy himself along the way for certain, but is looking to marry wealthy and he's dumped the deceased for the wealthy Marita Geraghty.

Calabro is also not someone used to hearing the word "no". Kind of a young Donald Trump.

The problem is that of reputation. There are laws against hearsay testimony so that defendants are only convicted of the facts involving what crime they are accused of. But victims have no such protection. It is really a heartbreaking to see Michael Moriarty try and tell the deceased's parents that tabloid stories about their daughter are not based on information from his office or the police.

At one point all he has is hearsay.

You watch the episode to see how Moriarty makes use of it.
