Storyline

After a young woman is sexually assaulted and murdered, Detectives Olivia Benson and Eliot Stabler track down the woman's boyfriend - their first suspect - but learn that he is a devout vegan who wouldn't hurt a fly. They soon find that the victim had been deeply involved in the fight to expose questionable practices in the meat-packing industry, even going undercover at a large company to find out the truth. Benson goes undercover herself to retrace the woman's footsteps and to identify who the victim might have angered along the way. Written by NBC Publicity

Might make you a Vegan like Aaron Tveit
28 June 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A young crusading journalist gets murdered and it's made to look like a sex crime. That's how SVU gets involved in this case, the young woman had the semen of two men recently intimate with her.

One of those men was a boyfriend played here by Aaron Tveit who has gained stardom due to Les Miserables. He's both a Buddhist and a Vegan and has an alibi. I couldn't really buy him as a suspect.

Where the squad finally zeroes in is a meatpacking plant which is the home of a popular Italian meatball product for which Lynn Cohen is both the matriarch and spokesperson for the company. Upton Sinclair had this place in mind when he wrote The Jungle over a hundred years ago. Nothing seems to have changed and no one of the mostly immigrant work force is going to rat out the management.

Watch this episode you'll now why Tveit is a Vegan.
