'No Humans Involved'
1 March 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The murder of a young college kid who was dressed to seduce gets the SVU squad on the wrong track as by her attire they guess she was a working girl. That leads to a whole slew of a prostitute killings going back almost thirty years.

Back in my working days with NYS Crime Victims Board I well remember the low rank that prostitute killings received with just about everyone including my own agency. When I got assigned claims stemming from the Joel Rifkin serial killings of prostitutes I recall that the Medical Examiner had to issue new death certificates in some of the cases where the office said it was natural causes. It's done that way quite frankly to relieve the police of investigating a killing for which there will be no clues.

The killer turns out to be a vice cop with some real issues. His partner Joe Lisi labels those prostitute killings NHI, no humans involved. But Garrett Brown is working off some real issues himself.

Good as Brown is, the performance you won't forget is that of Selenis Levya who managed to escape Brown a year earlier and gave the squad enough evidence to convince them their perpetrator is a cop. She has two scenes and in her second implores the squad to stop working this as she is a person who doesn't really count.

Sad to say that's quite true to life.
