When a 15-year-old girl is hit by a car and killed, Detectives Benson and Stabler are surprised when Dr. Melinda Warner rules it a homicide. She has found signs that the girl was being starved, and had even recently given birth. As the two look into the case with the help of Detective Odafin Tutuola and Dr. George Huang, they find that the girl had fallen victim to a human trafficking ring, and though some think it's a case for the FBI, the cops instead reach out to Assistant U.S. Attorney and friend Christine Danielson, who has moved up in the world since the detectives last saw her. Meanwhile, Captain Donald Cragen is frustrated by his crumbling precinct. Written by NBC Publicity

Homicide in the farmer's market
29 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Tamara Tunie's due diligence to her job has her calling an apparent hit and run a homicide. A malnourished and recently pregnant 13 something teen is rundown in the Farmer's Market.

Surveillance tape and once again we owe this to 9/11 shows someone pushing her into oncoming traffic and it turns out to be her brother Devon Gearhart. Ice-T uses some of his street connections to trap Gearhart and young Gearhart does have a gut wrenching scene with B.D. Wong where he confesses why.

Gearhart and the sister were given to this farm couple in a roundabout way who work the kids they have by day and pimp them out by night. They're operating their farm out of Suffolk County, but they have a farm and run operation and they've been all over the country.

These two are among the worst bottom feeders ever shown on a Law And Order franchise show. But we never really see them.

Nevertheless they're frightening in a frightening show.
