Trivia

The character Jerry Dupree is loosely based on the serial killer Jerry Brudos. Brudos killed four women in or around Salem, Oregon, through 1968-69. He had a foot fetish and was infatuated with women's shoes. At the time of his death on 3/28/2006, he was the longest-incarcerated inmate in the Oregon Department of Corrections. See more »

Meandering
31 October 2012 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Although this SVU episode starts out with a murder of a Tibetan refugee and Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay assume it has something to do with her political activism it meanders quite a bit until we get to it having to do with her footwear.

Another lovely red herring is thrown in when the SVU squad suspects Frederick Weller initially of the crime. The victim was married to her, but that turns out to be a marriage for citizenship as Weller is gay and has a partner. That sounds like the subject of a whole SVU episode in and of itself.

No after a painstaking investigation the culprit is Charlie Hofheimer who has a raging shoe fetish. But Dr. Huang assures us that those folks are not violent. Which leads us to the final twist of the story which I will not reveal.

Not one of SVU's better episodes it meanders way too much in the plot.
