|Status||Imprisoned for life|
Shane Lucas was a pornography producer and the prime suspect in the murder of Jody Watson.
Lucas murdered Watson, a fifteen-year-old prostitute, at the behest of Kenneth Peluso, a Vice detective who raped her while on the job. Lucas was later convicted of pandering, assault, and rape charges and released in 2003.
Lucas was also a suspect in ordering Peluso's murder to eliminate a witness. Emiliano Ortiz, the gunman who killed Peluso (and shot Detective Ed Green in the process), testified that Lucas paid him to do it, but Lucas was acquitted.
After Lucas' acquittal, he was confronted by Detective Joe Fontana and Lieutenant Anita Van Buren and arrested for Watson's murder. Lucas is currently serving a life sentence without parole for felony murder. (L&O: "Skeleton")
