A dog finds an unrecognizable older lady's body in a park, with a bloody knife and bloody rain poncho nearby, plus doggy treats and an empty leash. Detectives locate the dog at a nearby vet, cleaned by the vet of trace evidence, but with the victim's bloody shoe. A lift in the shoe leads to identification of the victim, a health care worker whose duties included identification of the sources of patients' HIV infections. Eventually detectives suspect the victim's lawyer husband, who refuses to give a DNA sample, but donated at the blood bank, which informs that he was an Ecstasy and Viagra user. Written by Anonymous

A satisfying bust
28 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

During his career I've seen Michael Gross play some truly nasty and immoral people. Fascinating how that his career role was as the father on a family situation comedy, you'd never think that watching this SVU episode.

Gross and his wife seem like a perfect couple, meeting in college, he a law student she a medical student and they lived happily ever after. Or at least until she got old and he got hornier with age. Using viagra probably helped.

Gross's problem is that she holds the purse strings. She came from old money and he never really earned any of his own. Now he has a taste for young women, even hookers. And she's ready to cut him off.

This guy is some piece of work. He even kills another woman to make the police think it's the worth of some random stalker in Central Park.

Very happy when Benson and Stabler put the cuffs on him.
