Harold Starnes is a murderer and serial rapist. Starnes was eventually imprisoned on four rapes and a murder he committed and was suspected of raping three other women in Harlem.
He impregnated two of his victims, Martha Shelby and Susan Guan, and they each gave birth to a boy: Martha had a son named Daniel, while Susan had a son named Darrell. Daniel died two hours after a premature birth. Darrell, on the other hand, was neglected and ostracized by his mother and her family, and grew up to be a serial rapist and murderer, just like his father.
Later in life, Starnes was released from Clinton Correctional Facility and sent to live in a halfway house for people with disabilities, as he had contracted progressive multiple sclerosis. (SVU: "Inheritance")
