Teenager Emily Sullivan is found brutally murdered in the trunk of a car. When her friends, Brittany, Paige, and Andrea reveal that Emily had an older boyfriend, he is first considered a suspect, but then it is discovered that Emily and her friends tormented an overweight girl, Agnes Linsky which makes her a suspect. After Agnes' brother attacks Brittany for sending nude pictures of Agnes in the locker room, the detectives soon find a link that Brittany, Andrea, and Paige were responsible for Emily's murder.

Quotes Edit

  • Olivia Benson [to Casey]: Remind me to give you the names of all the girls I hated in high school.

  • Casey Novak: They're monsters. They're mean, vicious little girls who think that they can do whatever they want, and up until now they've gotten away with it. But not anymore.

  • Elliot Stabler: I love these little cliques. They're like the mafia; nobody knows nothing.

  • Dr. Huang: Victims of bullying are often social outcasts. It's typical for school officials to identify with the "normal" kids ...
  • Cragen: And the victims are seen as being "overly sensitive."

Background information and notes Edit

  • This episode shares similarities between the murder of Shanda Sharer in 1992. The murder involved a young girl who was tortured and burned to death in Madison, Indiana by four teenage girls. Her case attracted nationwide attention due to its gruesome nature.
