After exchanging shots with armed-robbery suspects fleeing down a dark alley, the police discover a dead fourteen year old black female with a bullet in her skull. Autopsy reveals that she was dead hours before being accidentally shot. This case, which started out weird, becomes weirder at every turn. The dead girl, Samantha, who died from dehydration-starvation, was covered in filth and cockroach bites, but had nice ribbons in her hair, covered with a nice blanket, wearing a necklace sporting an infinity symbol worth almost a grand, and pregnant using a fertilization process that caused her to release many eggs at one time. Using the custom-made jewelry, SVU Detectives back-trace it to a Doctor Lang, and his non-profit organization Lang-Foy (Fountain of Youth). Several other teen-age runaways are discovered along with a chilling secret about Dr. Lang, his employees, and his organization. Written by Lynne Boris Johnston

Egocentric Cult
22 January 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

While chasing a fleeing robber some uniformed officers have a shootout in the alley. After the perpetrator is apprehended the body of a dead teenage girl is discovered in the alley and it has a bullet wound in the head. SVU's favorite Internal Affairs cop Robert John Burke asks Benson and Stabler to investigate the dead girl as she looks like she was abused.

Fortunately for the two patrol officers and perpetrator for that matter the girl was already dead when she was shot. A rather expensive necklace with a platinum infinity symbol is on her neck. It's the sign of an egocentric cult headed by Gale Harold who once upon a time was a distinguished scientist.

Now though he has this cult which provides him with some youthful pubescent women whom he impregnates in his quest for cloning the perfect child. Such experimentation is now against the law in New York State.

Harold is some piece of work it must give him such jollies to know that his seed is now all over the country as his operation recruits in several cities, the deceased was a runaway from Philadelphia. Harold even has a den mother type figure for the girls with Barbara Barrie. Barrie proves Harold's undoing however.

Gale Harold and Barbara Barrie prove to be an interesting combination of cult figures in this interesting story.
