Not quite a murder
21 April 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This is one Law And Order I found a bit much to take. Jerry Orbach and Jesse Martin respond to a call involving an unconscious woman who is slipping into a vegetative coma. With her hovering between life and death her condition warrants a full court investigation.

What she overdosed on was insulin and it comes down to two suspects, her husband and her daughter. Turns out that insulin in just and I mean just the right amount can give you a bit of ecstasy which along with sex is a great high. Her husband David Dukes got her turned on to that.

I think that's some really sick stuff and insulin is nothing to play with. There are lots of insulin shock death every year. But daughter Marin Hinkle would have liked mom to loosen the purse strings a bit. Gaining control through power of attorney would do.

It's up to Sam Waterston to parse out the blame. I can only feel for the victim hovering between one world and another.
