Storyline

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

Trivia

The character of Ned Loomis (Thomas Calabro), accused of strangling Paige Bartlett, is based on "Preppie Killer" Robert Chambers, who strangled Jennifer Levin in 1986 in New York City. The handsome Loomis came from a prominent family, went to prep schools and Ivy League universities, and had no criminal history. Chambers, though he was painted as privileged by the press, came from a much different background. He was handsome but attended prep schools on scholarship and had a long history of anti-social behavior and run-ins with the law. See more »

Goofs

Elyse Brody pulls down her turtleneck to show the scar and her neck and says, "This is what Ned Loomis did to me". Then the camera cuts to a closeup of the scar, and the scar is a different size and shape from what it was in the first shot. See more »

All he has is hearsay
22 October 2017 | by bkoganbingSee 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.
