Sgt. Greevey and Det. Logan look for additional evidence in a rape case. Well-known reporter Monica Devries was raped but ADAs Stone and Robinette run into a road block when the physical evidence and DNA tests don't match any of the accused. Under normal circumstances, Stone would have simply put Devries on the stand but a previous conviction makes her a weak witness and less sympathetic to a jury. The detectives decides to restart the investigation from scratch and learn that there may have been another as yet unidentified attacker. Getting that person's identity will be key in getting a successful prosecution.
Did You Know?
When no one in the neighborhood wants to talk about hearing a rape being committed Sgt. Greevey tells Logan that "we're living in the post-Kitty Genovese era." On March 13, 1964, Kitty Genovese was murdered outside her apartment in Kew Gardens of New York City and no one came to help nor did anyone call the police while she was being stabbed to death. When the police later combed the neighborhood, 38 people admitted hearing her cries for help. This behavior has become known as the bystander effect or "Genovese syndrome." The "38 witnesses" thing was later proven to be false. Further investigation many years later turned up calls from at least a dozen neighbors. It was concluded that a New York Times reporter had exaggerated some details, and falsely reported others. In 2015, the Times apologized for the false story. See more
