Trivia

This episode derives its storyline by fictionally linking and conflating two real-life (but entirely separate) crimes committed in Central Park during the late 1980s - crimes which were then relentlessly hawked by the New York mass media. The first was the August 1986 death of teenager Jennifer Levin at the hands of Robert E. Chambers; tabloids subsequently nicknamed Chambers "The Preppie Killer" (here cosmetically changed to "The Yuppie Killer"). The second was the April 1989 beating and rape of a young Manhattan investment banker, a woman whom newspapers dubbed the "Central Park Jogger" (here changed to the "Reservoir Runner"). See more »

Quotes

Detective Robert Goren: Mark, he told us that there's three varieties of murder groupies: victims, psychos, and shrinks.
Detective Alexandra Eames: He said with you he's got "three mints in one."
Chantal Fielding: Oh! That loser!

The Preppie Punk & Policeman
25 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An arrogant pretty boy, a preppie-type who killed someone years ago, is now out of jail and being the object of attention from attractive sick groupies. He's now staying at his mom's house but his mom discovers how sick her son is and is killed later that night. The preppie looks like the obvious suspect but once Goren interviews him, he knows the guy didn't kill his mother. If not, then who did?

After further investigation and reviewing news articles and tapes of another similar crime, Goren starts becoming suspicious of a cop. Ah, he's where the old L&O Liberal bias comes back to forefront, as it so often does especially in anything related to race.....but it's still another fascinating episode with two separate cases solved in the end.

Mike Starr, a familiar face is movies, gives an outstanding guest performance as "Det. Marston."
