Media frenzy
6 December 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This SVU episode deals with what can happen when the media gets into feeding frenzy and sensationalizes a case. Kali Rocha who with too little information about an infant kidnapping case confronts mother Ashley Williams about it with tragic results. A tidbit of knowledge can be dangerous.

In their search for the child the squad gets a lesson in DNA typing. With some DNA from the missing kid. the search for the dad is done in the laboratories and a match is found. Mother and son Marian Seldes and Dana Ashbrook are a real pair of bottom feeders. Seldes you will remember.

Takes me back to high school biology.
