It’s A Serial

Her sister’s name was Tanya. She didn’t check the voicemail until the morning and was distraught about it. She shared with the detectives that her sister was homeless and is a sex worker survivor. This led Rollins and Velasco to interview her last acquaintances. They spoke with two girls at the shelter, Snowflake & Missy, who pointed them to a girl named Beauty.

Beauty didn’t offer much information. Sooner after, Snowflake and Missy visited SVU to inform them that Beauty was missing. They dug a little further and revealed a missing persons file that suggested there were nearly a dozen girls from that area missing which fit a similar type. Rollins suspected that they were dealing with a serial rapist!

The team realizes the case was dogged. They then sought medical examiner Truman. He told them one of the girl’s liver and intestines were removed with a butcher’s knife and a meat cleaver- it was postmortem and crude. This led them to a butcher in the area the girls all trusted, Country. He holds their personal items so their pimps won’t confiscate their earnings. They hauled the main in for questioning.

They had evidence of his route on a traffic cam and threatened him with revoking his parole. He confessed he dropped Tanya off to her mystery date. He felt she was fine and would emerge in a few days.

One murdered girl, Meredith’s son was autistic and overheard the conversation. He interjected vital information of his mother’s last boyfriend. Even recalling the license plate of the truck. This led them to haul in the owner of the truck, Trace Lambert.
