Nicole Wallace was a recurring character on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Her actions were often investigated by Robert Goren and Alexandra Eames. Though accused of murdering several individuals, she was only arrested once, and was found not guilty at the resulting trial.
Very little is known about Nicole Wallace's past - it was apparently so painful that she's gone to great lengths to keep anyone from learning about it. As best as can be determined, she was born somewhere in Queensland, Australia. Det. Goren once speculated that she was molested by her father from the time she was three years old up until an undetermined date; Nicole for her part has vehemently denied this is true, but once said in private that "sometimes daddies love too much."
As an adult, she married Rohan Bartlett, and the two had a daughter together. Things were apparently normal up until the daughter turned three. After that point, Nicole began to fear that her daughter would become a rival for Rohan's affections, and she broke the unfortunate girl's neck and arm; the girl drowned in the waters off of Stradbroke Island that day. She was never conclusively connected to the crime, but a year later, she left the country under the name of Elizabeth Hitchens; police in Brisbane would later find the body of an unidentified woman, and it is suspected that this was the real Hitchens.
