Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999–…): Season 12, Episode 3 - Behave - full transcript

A rape victim, Vicki, is brought into the hospital initially claiming she has been attacked multiple times by the same man. Detectives Benson and Stabler are determined to help her, but she lives in such terror that she then denies she has been raped at all and refuses to submit to a rape kit. As Benson looks for a way to help, she is horrified to learn that there are police precincts and evidence labs across the country that never test their rape kits at all. The investigation soon leads her to Los Angeles where she meets Detective Rex Winters, who has information that could finally help Vicki get justice.

IN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM,

SEXUALLY BASED OFFENSES

ARE CONSIDERED
ESPECIALLY HEINOUS.

IN NEW YORK CITY,

THE DEDICATED DETECTIVES

WHO INVESTIGATE
THESE VICIOUS FELONIES

ARE MEMBERS OF AN ELITE SQUAD

KNOWN AS
THE SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT.

THESE ARE THEIR STORIES.

- BLESS YOU.
THE LORD SAID,

WHAT GOES INTO
A MAN'S MOUTH



CANNOT MAKE HIM UNCLEAN.

FOR IT MOVES THROUGH
HIS STOMACH AND OUT HIS BODY.

WHAT COMES OUT
OF A MAN'S MOUTH IS UNCLEAN,

FOR IT COMES
FROM THE HEART,

WHERE EVIL LURKS.

IMMORALITY, ADULTERY, LUST!

- HEY! WHY DON'T YOU
TAKE THAT ACT SOMEWHERE ELSE,

PREACHER MAN?

- AH, UH, DEFINITELY
GOT A SOUL BACK HERE

WHO NEEDS SAVING.

AND THE LORD SAID,

EVERYONE WHO LIVES IN SIN
IS A SLAVE TO SIN.

WHOA TO THE YOUNG LADY WHO
ENFLAMES HERSELF WITH ALCOHOL,

FOR IT POISONS THE BLOOD.



WHAT--WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?

SISTER, SISTER, SISTER.

SISTER, SISTER.
SHH.

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?

OHH.

- HE RAPED ME.

AGAIN.

- AGAIN?
SHE MENTION THE GUY'S NAME?

- SAYS SHE DOESN'T KNOW IT.

- AND HE ATTACKED HER
HOW MANY TIMES?

- SHE TOLD THE EMTs FOUR
OVER THE PAST 15 YEARS.

- THAT'S A FIRST
FOR A STRANGER RAPIST.

WHAT'S THE VICTIM'S NAME?

- JULIE MCMANUS.

CAME IN DISORIENTED WITH
NUMEROUS SCALP LACERATIONS.

I REMOVED A DOZEN
GLASS SHARDS FROM HER HEAD.

NOW, LOOK, I'M NOT SURE
HOW REAL THIS IS.

- YOU DON'T BELIEVE HER?

- SHE REEKS LIKE A WINO.

I'M WAITING FOR THE RESULTS
ON HER BLOOD ALCOHOL.

- IF SHE SAID THAT
SHE WAS RAPED, SHE WAS RAPED.

- I WASN'T RAPED!

- JULIE, WAIT!

- YOU CALLED THE POLICE?

- JULIE, WE'RE JUST HERE
TO HELP YOU.

- YOU TOLD THE EMTs
THAT YOU WERE RAPED.

DR. TANAKA TOOK
SHARDS OF GLASS

OUT OF YOUR SCALP.

- I'M FINE.
I FELL.

IT'S A MISTAKE.

- JULIE, YOU NEED A RAPE KIT.

THERE COULD
BE EVIDENCE ON YOU

THAT COULD HELP US
FIND THE GUY--

- I JUST HAVE TO GET HOME.

- JULIE!

HEY, DON'T TAKE A SHOWER,
IN CASE YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND.

- PASSENGER THAT GOT ON
THE BUS WITH JULIE

SAW HER STAGGER
OUT OF THIS ALLEY.

- YEAH, BLOOD DROPS.

LEADING FROM THE ALLEY
TO THE BUS STOP.

- HOW FRESH?

- FRESH ENOUGH FOR CSU
TO GET A TYPE A-NEGATIVE.

- OH, SAME AS JULIE'S.

PERP MUST HAVE
ATTACKED HER RIGHT THERE.

- MORE BLOOD
AND BROKEN GLASS.

ANYBODY CATCH WIND?

- ONLY FROM
THE AIR CONDITIONERS.

THE GUY SAID HE HEARD SOME CATS
FIGHTING LATE LAST NIGHT,

BUT HE DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING.

- I FOUND SOMETHIN'!

HEY, CHARLIE,
GET A SHOT OF THIS.

- LAST NIGHT'S GARBAGE?

- NAH, SOMETHING
MUCH MORE VALUABLE.

BROKEN BOTTLE OF BOOZE.

- SAME COLOR
AS THE GLASS SHARDS

FOUND IN JULIE'S SCALP.

- THE BOTTLE'S BUSTED,

LIKE THE PERP GRABBED IT
BY THE NECK AND CROWNED HER.

- OR SHE AND ANOTHER DRUNK
WERE FIGHTING OVER IT,

AND JULIE LOST.

- SHE WASN'T DRUNK.

DOC SAID HE DIDN'T FIND A DROP
OF ALCOHOL IN JULIE'S BLOOD.

- HER NAME IS NOT JULIE MCMANUS.

CSU GOT A HIT OFF
A THUMBPRINT FROM THE BOTTLE.

AND IT BELONGS TO A WOMAN
NAMED VICKI ALICIA SAYERS.

- WELL, SHE GAVE
THE HOSPITAL A FAKE NAME.

HAS SHE BEEN
IN ANY TROUBLE?

- NO, HER PRINTS
ARE IN THE SYSTEM

BECAUSE SHE APPLIED
FOR A CIVIL SERVANT JOB.

- ADDRESS IS IN MID-TOWN.

- YEAH, THAT'S BOGUS.
THERE'S NO PHONE.

THERE'S NO RECORD OF
A VICKI SAYERS IN THE TRISTATE.

TRYING TO MAKE HERSELF
INVISIBLE.

- I DON'T BLAME HER.

SHE'S BEEN RAPED FOUR TIMES
BY THE SAME GUY.

- OLIVIA...

- OH, I KNOW WHAT
YOU'RE GONNA SAY, CAPTAIN.

- NO COMPLAINING WITNESS,
NO CASE.

- I WAS GOING TO SAY
IF THERE'S A RAPIST OUT THERE,

WE'LL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES
TO COLLAR HIM.

- WELL, THE ODDS ARE THAT SHE
LIVES OR WORKS

NEAR THE AREA
SHE WAS ATTACKED.

- YEAH, BUT WE CAN'T BE
KNOCKING ON EVERY DOOR

IN THE WASHINGTON HEIGHTS
AREA.

- BUT WE CAN CHECK HER OUT
THROUGH THE TAX MAN.

SHE'D HAVE TO USE HER REAL NAME
TO PAY THE PIPER.

GET A SUBPOENA
FOR THE CITY TAX ROLLS.

[doorbell buzzing]

- VICKI.

VICKI SAYERS,
I'M DETECTIVE BENSON.

WE MET AT THE HOSPITAL
LAST NIGHT.

[doorbell buzzing]

- HEY.

VICKI, LISTEN TO ME.

I UNDERSTAND
WHY YOU'RE SCARED,

BUT WE'RE HERE
TO PROTECT YOU.

I JUST--I JUST NEED YOU
TO TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED,

SO I CAN STOP HIM.

- HOW DID YOU FIND ME?

- YOU PAID YOUR TAXES.
- OH, GOD.

- VICKI, PLEASE LET ME IN!
I CAN HELP YOU.

- NO, YOU CAN'T.

NO ONE CAN.
GO AWAY!

- HOLD ON.
VICKI!

[knocks on window]

VICKI!

- I KNOW, I KNOW.
WE'RE GONNA BE HERE FOR A WHILE.

- HEADS UP.

WE GOT A FEMALE DELIVERING BAGS
TO VICKI'S DOOR.

- CAN YOU SEE WHAT'S IN THEM?

- YEAH, LOOKS LIKE GROCERIES
IN ONE,

AND OFFICE SUPPLIES
IN THE OTHER.

- VICKI COMING OUT
TO GET 'EM?

- NO, OUR DELIVERY LADY
KNOWS THE OUTSIDE DOOR CODE.

VICKI'S SO PARANOID,
SHE DOESN'T LEAVE THE HOUSE.

SHE PROBABLY
HAS A THROWAWAY CELL TOO.

- SO WE CAN'T TRACE IT.

RULE NUMBER ONE IN
THE STALKING VICTIMS' HANDBOOK.

LET'S SEE IF SHE KNOWS
WHEN VICKI'S COMING OUT.

- EXCUSE ME.

POLICE.

- ME?
- YEAH.

HOW LONG YOU BEEN WORKING
FOR VICKI SAYERS?

- I COULD LOSE MY JOB
IF I SAY ANYTHING.

- WELL, SHE COULD
LOSE HER LIFE IF YOU DON'T.

- I RUN ALL HER ERRANDS

SO SHE DOESN'T
HAVE TO LEAVE THE HOUSE.

I PAY HER BILLS
SO HER MONEY CAN'T BE TRACED.

- DOES SHE HAVE A JOB?

- UH...

MEDICAL ACCOUNTING.

SHE WORKS FROM HOME.

ONLY GOES INTO AN OFFICE
ONCE A MONTH.

- WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME?
- YESTERDAY.

THAT'S ALL I CAN TELL YOU.
I HAVE TO GO.

- VICKI.
VICKI, I GET IT.

YOU KNOW THAT HE'S
WATCHING YOU

BECAUSE HE ATTACKED YOU
ON THE ONE DAY

THAT YOU LEFT YOUR HOUSE.

AND YOU KNOW
THAT HE'S COMING BACK.

VICKI.

PLEASE LET ME IN.

I CAN HELP YOU.

- SO IS SHE
LOOKING AT US AGAIN?

- WELL, MAYBE IF SHE SEES
WE'RE SERIOUS,

SHE'LL COME OUT.

- MAYBE WE SHOULD
SMOKE HER OUT.

- LOOK, JUST GIVE ME
A COUPLE MORE HOURS, OKAY?

I, UH, MAYBE SHE'LL
CHANGE HER MIND.

- I GOTTA GET BACK TO THE SQUAD,
PREP FOR COURT.

- AH, OKAY.

WELL, YOU TAKE THE CAR,

I'LL HANG.

[car starts]

I'LL CALL FIN,
HAVE HIM SPELL ME.

- SEE YA.

SVU PORTABLE ONE TO TWO.

FIN, HOW FAR OUT ARE YOU?

- I GOT HUNG UP BY THE SQUAD.

- OKAY, UH, VICKI'S ON THE MOVE.

I'M JUST GONNA
HAVE TO IMPROVISE.

HEY...POLICE!

FOLLOW THAT CAR.

DO AS I SAY.
GO, GO.

[gasps]
- VICKI, STOP!

VICKI! VICKI, STOP!

- OH! [gasps]

- VICKI, VICKI, VICKI.
LISTEN, IT'S ME, OLIVIA!

- [whimpering and panting]

LEAVE ME ALONE.

- VICKI, DROP THE GUN.

- NO, I--
I HAVE TO PROTECT MYSELF.

- I'M GONNA PROTECT YOU, VICKI.

I PROMISE.

NOW DROP THE GUN. NOW.

NOW!

- I'M SORRY.

I'M SORRY.
I'M SORRY.

- YOU'RE UNDER ARREST FOR
CRIMINAL POSSESSION OF A WEAPON.

- PLEASE DON'T DO THIS TO ME.
[handcuffs snapping]

PLEASE.

- I'M THE ONE WHO WAS RAPED,
AND YOU'RE ARRESTING ME?

- YOU'RE LUCKY
I DIDN'T SHOOT YOU

WITH THAT GUN IN YOUR HAND.

- HOW ELSE AM I SUPPOSED
TO PROTECT MYSELF?

- BY HELPING ME CATCH THE GUY
WHO'S BEEN ATTACKING YOU.

- HE'S TOO SMART.
YOU'RE NEVER GONNA GET HIM.

- I WILL, IF YOU'D TRUST ME.

- TRUST YOU?

YOU'RE STALKING ME,
JUST LIKE HE IS.

- HAVING A GUN DELIVERED

LIKE IT'S SOME KIND
OF CHINESE TAKE-OUT?

THAT'S THE ANSWER?

- I DON'T KNOW
WHAT ELSE TO DO.

- I'M SORRY, VICKI.
I PUSHED YOU.

I JUST DON'T KNOW
IF WE HAVE ANY TIME LEFT.

- WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

- HE'S ESCALATING.

HE NEARLY KILLED YOU
WITH THAT BOTTLE.

NEXT TIME, HE WILL.

- I'M SCARED.

- THAT'S WHY I NEED YOU
TO TALK TO ME.

YOU HAVEN'T
CHANGED YOUR CLOTHES.

AND I CAN SEE...
THAT YOU DIDN'T SHOWER.

- YOU SAID I SHOULDN'T.

- I KNOW YOU WANT TO CATCH
THIS SON OF A BITCH

AS MUCH AS I DO.

SO COME, I'M GONNA TAKE YOU
TO THE HOSPITAL, ALL RIGHT?

- IT'S NOT TOO LATE?

- WE CAN RECOVER EVIDENCE
UP TO 96 HOURS AFTER THE ATTACK.

- WILL YOU STAY WITH ME?

- FOR AS LONG AS IT TAKES.

- FIRST TIME HE RAPED ME
WAS 1995.

I WAS 16.

I WAS A CANDY STRIPER
AT A HOSPITAL.

WHEN I WAS LEAVING...

HE GRABBED ME FROM BEHIND.

HE HAD A KNIFE.

AND HE PUSHED ME
INTO A STOREROOM CLOSET.

PULLED UP MY DRESS AND...

AND HE LOOKED ME IN THE EYES
WHILE HE RAPED ME.

- AND YOU DIDN'T KNOW HIM?

- NO, I HAD NEVER
SEEN HIM BEFORE.

- DID HE SAY ANYTHING?

- HE SAID, "YOU BETTER
BE A GOOD GIRL.

AND BEHAVE."

HE TOLD ME THAT HE WOULD
KILL MY MOM AND DAD

IF I TOLD ANYONE.

AND THEN HE TOOK
MY DRIVER'S PERMIT

SO THAT HE WOULD KNOW MY NAME
AND WHERE I LIVED.

- WHEN WAS THE NEXT ATTACK?

- NOVEMBER 14, 1998.

I WAS A SOPHOMORE AT HUDSON.

HE HELD A KNIFE TO MY THROAT,
AND HE SAID,

"I'VE BEEN LOOKING
ALL OVER FOR YOU.

YOU'VE BEEN A VERY BAD GIRL."

- HE BROKE INTO YOUR APARTMENT?

- FROM THE FIRE ESCAPE.

[camera clicking]

[voice cracking]
HE TIED ME UP

AND THEN HE TOLD ME
TO GET ON MY KNEES.

[sniffles]

- IT'S OKAY, VICKI.

IT'S OKAY, TAKE YOUR TIME.

- HE RAPED ME
OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

THE WHOLE TIME, HE JUST
KEPT WHISPERING,

"YOU'RE MINE.

FOREVER."

[sobbing]

- DID YOU CALL THE POLICE?

- YES.

THEY DID A REPORT,

BUT I DIDN'T
GO TO THE HOSPITAL.

I JUST WANTED TO FORGET
IT HAD EVER HAPPENED.

UNTIL MY 20TH BIRTHDAY.

I GOT HOME, AND THERE WAS
A PACKAGE WAITING FOR ME.

WHEN I OPENED IT, THERE WAS
A JACK-IN-THE-BOX INSIDE

THAT SANG HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

AND THE CARD ATTACHED SAID,
"I'M WATCHING YOU.

BEHAVE YOURSELF."

- HE KNEW
IT WAS YOUR BIRTHDAY

BECAUSE HE HAD
YOUR DRIVING PERMIT.

- I WAS TOO SCARED
TO TELL THE POLICE.

SO I RAN.

- WHERE DID YOU GO?

- TO LOS ANGELES.

I GOT A JOB.

I MET THIS GUY.

SCOTT.

I LOVED HIM.

WE GOT ENGAGED.

ALL THE NIGHTMARES
WERE OVER UNTIL...

- UNTIL HE FOLLOWED YOU
3,000 MILES AWAY.

- JULY 2000.

ONE WEEK BEFORE MY WEDDING.

I CAME HOME FROM
MY BRIDAL SHOWER,

AND HE WAS WAITING FOR ME.

HE PUNCHED ME IN THE FACE
AND HE BROKE MY NOSE.

[crying] HE SAID THAT
I WAS A BITCH FOR MOVING

WITHOUT HIS PERMISSION.

THEN,
AFTER HE RAPED ME, HE...

HE TOOK MY ENGAGEMENT RING

AND MY CALIFORNIA
DRIVER'S LICENSE,

AND SAID HE WOULD
KEEP IT SAFE.

[sobbing] OW!

PLEASE, YOU'RE HURTING ME.

THE NEIGHBORS, THEY HEARD--

THEY HEARD ME CRYING,
SO THEY CALLED THE POLICE.

THEY DID A RAPE KIT
AT THE HOSPITAL.

I CRIED ALL THE TIME.

I COULDN'T EAT.

I COULDN'T SLEEP.

AND SCOTT KEPT ASKING ME
IF I STILL LOVED HIM.

I TOLD HIM OF COURSE I DID,

BUT EVERY TIME HE TOUCHED ME
I JUST THOUGHT OF HIM.

- DID SCOTT LEAVE YOU?

- NO.

I BROKE OFF THE ENGAGEMENT
AND MOVED.

I FOUND A JOB THAT I COULD
DO FROM HOME.

I BECAME A HERMIT.

TILL ONE DAY, I LEFT
TO TALK TO MY BOSS,

AND WHEN I CAME HOME...

- HE WAS THERE.

- NO.

BUT HE HAD BEEN.

MY UNDERWEAR WERE GONE,
AND I JUST FREAKED OUT.

- IS THAT WHEN YOU
CAME BACK TO NEW YORK?

- YES.

- I WAS LIVING
WITH MY MOTHER.

BUT I HAD TO MOVE
SEVEN MONTHS AGO, WHEN SHE DIED.

- TILL HE FOUND YOU AGAIN
LAST NIGHT.

- WHEN I CAME OUT
OF THE SUBWAY...

HE PULLED ME IN--

INTO THE ALLEY.

AND HE...SHOVED ME
FACE FIRST INTO A BRICK WALL

AND RAPED ME.

- VICKI, YOU'RE
ABSOLUTELY SURE

THAT IT WAS THE SAME MAN?

- I COULDN'T SEE HIM.

BUT HE WHISPERED,
"YOU DIDN'T BEHAVE YOURSELF,

AND NOW YOU'RE GONNA DIE."

I STARTED TO SCREAM,
AND HE HIT ME WITH A BOTTLE.

- VICKI, I PROMISE YOU,

HE WILL NEVER HURT YOU AGAIN.

- THIS GUY IS THE ULTIMATE
CONTROL FREAK,

STALKING HER CROSS-COUNTRY
FOR 15 YEARS?

- YEAH, AND HE'S GONNA
KEEP PREYING ON VICKI

UNTIL WE LOCK HIM UP.

- I'LL HAVE PATROL SET UP
A PROTECTIVE DETAIL.

GET THE SKETCH OUT CITYWIDE
TO EVERY POLICE AGENCY

IN THE TRISTATE AREA,

AND LOS ANGELES TOO.

DO WE KNOW WHO CAUGHT HER CASE
IN CALIFORNIA?

- LAPD.
A DETECTIVE OUT THERE

SAYS HE'S PULLING
ANYTHING THAT HE CAN FIND.

- I HOPE HE HAS
BETTER LUCK THAN I DID.

REPORTS FROM VICKI'S
'98 RAPE HERE

GOT LOST WHEN THE THREE-FIVE

MOVED TO THEIR NEW
PRECINCT LAST YEAR.

- SO UNLESS THE PERP'S DNA
IS IN VICKI'S RAPE KIT,

WE GOT NOTHING.

- NOT EXACTLY, CAPTAIN.

WE DO HAVE FLUIDS
FROM THE RAPE KIT.

- VICKI SAID THAT THE PERP
MAY HAVE WORN A CONDOM.

- THIS ISN'T SEMEN.

THIS SAMPLE CONTAINED
GLYCERIN,

LANOLIN, AND MINERAL OIL.

- SOUNDS LIKE A MOISTURIZER.

- I'M THINKING HE USED IT
AS A LUBRICANT.

- HE COULD HAVE
BOUGHT THAT ANYWHERE.

- NOT THIS STUFF.

[plastic bag crinkling]

- "HEAVENLY TOUCH."

- WE FOUND IT
AT THE CRIME SCENE.

UH, PERP MUST HAVE
DROPPED IT WHEN HE RAN.

THAT MOISTURIZER
IS A CHEMICAL MATCH

TO WHAT WAS IN VICKI.

- TELL ME YOU FOUND PRINTS.

- SORRY, BUT CHECK OUT
WHERE IT CAME FROM.

- "COURTESY OF...
THE AMSTERDAM."

- WELCOME TO OUR HOTEL.

WHERE CAN I DIRECT YOU?

- TO THIS GUY,
IF YOU'VE SEEN HIM.

- WELL...

THAT COULD BE MR. HARRIS.

- IS HE A GUEST?

- NO, HE ENTERTAINS CLIENTS
HERE ALL THE TIME

IN OUR LOUNGE.

THERE HE IS AT THE BAR.

- AND THE DOCTOR
SAYS THE BEST TRAINING

FOR ROBOTIC SURGERY
IS PLAYING VIDEO GAMES.

[laughter]
- MR. HARRIS.

- OH, PLEASE.
CALL ME BILL.

WHAT SHOULD I CALL YOU?

- UH, DETECTIVE.

BILL, CAN WE TALK TO YOU
A MINUTE?

- SURE.

GUESS I SHOULDN'T HAVE
RUN THAT RED LIGHT.

- HMM. YEAH.

NOW, BILL, THIS IS KIND OF
EMBARRASSING,

BUT YOU LOOK AN AWFUL LOT
LIKE A SUSPECT WE'RE AFTER.

- UH, I WAS JUST KIDDING
ABOUT THE RED LIGHT.

- YEAH, WE CAN
CLEAR THIS UP QUICKLY

IF YOU DON'T MIND COMING
DOWN TO OUR OFFICE.

- SURE, I'LL COOPERATE
IN ANY WAY I CAN.

- EVERYBODY LOOK LEFT.

- [whispers] OH, GOD.

- YOU RECOGNIZE HIM?

- NUMBER THREE.
THAT'S HIM.

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU FOUND HIM.
THANK YOU.

- VICKI, JUST TO BE CLEAR.

WHERE DO YOU RECOGNIZE
NUMBER THREE FROM?

- THAT'S THE MAN
THAT RAPED ME FOUR TIMES.

- RAPE? ARE YOU SERIOUS?

- OUR VICTIM POSITIVELY
IDENTIFIED YOU.

- IMPOSSIBLE. SHE MUST HAVE
SEEN ME SOMEPLACE BEFORE.

- SHE HAS.

EACH OF THE FOUR TIMES THAT YOU
RAPED HER SINCE 1995.

- 15 YEARS?

WITH ALL DUE RESPECT,
YOU'RE INSANE.

NOW, I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT,
SO IF WE'RE FINISHED--

- WELL, WE'RE NOT FINISHED,
SO JUST HAVE A SEAT.

HAVE SOME WATER.
RELAX.

- RELAX?
- YEAH.

- HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO RELAX

WHEN YOU THINK
I'M SOME KIND OF A MONSTER?

- OKAY, WELL, THEN,
HELP US OUT.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU STAY
AT THE AMSTERDAM?

- I DON'T.

I LIVE THREE BLOCKS AWAY
ON RIVERSIDE.

- WELL, THE MEN'S ROOM...

HAVE THESE LITTLE BOTTLES
OF MOISTURIZER.

YOU EVER USE IT?

- NO. DO I NEED IT?

- WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME?

- LOOK...

YOU DEFINITELY
HAVE THE WRONG GUY.

- BILL, WHAT DO YOU
DO FOR WORK?

- I'M A PRODUCT REP.

SURGICAL EQUIPMENT.

- SCALPELS, CLAMPS,
STUFF LIKE THAT?

- HIGHER END.

ROBOTIC SCALPELS.

LAPAROSCOPIC CAMERAS.

- SO WHERE WERE YOU
TWO NIGHTS AGO?

- PROVIDENCE, AT A TRADE SHOW.

I GOT BACK YESTERDAY.

- CAN YOU PROVE IT?

- IN MY BRIEFCASE
BY YOUR DESK,

I HAVE A BILL
FOR THE HOTEL.

- TIMESTAMP'S 10:43 A.M.
YESTERDAY MORNING.

- DESK CLERK CONFIRMED IT?

- IT SAID HARRIS'S
ONLY COMPLAINT

WAS HE DIDN'T GET A MINT
ON HIS PILLOW.

HE TOOK
THE 11:52 A.M. AMTRAK

FROM PROVIDENCE
TO PENN STATION.

- HOW ABOUT THE NIGHT BEFORE,
WHEN VICKI WAS RAPED?

- I PULLED THESE STILLS
OFF THE SECURITY VIDEO

THE HOTEL EMAILED ME.

HERE HE IS,
CHECKING INTO THE HOTEL

TUESDAY AFTERNOON.

AND HERE HE IS LEAVING,
QUARTER TO 11, WEDNESDAY.

SECURITY SAID HE NEVER
LEFT THE ROOM ALL NIGHT.

- SO VICKI WAS WRONG.

- HER DESCRIPTION
FITS HARRIS TO A TEE.

- YEAH, AND ABOUT
A MILLION OTHER WHITE GUYS.

CHECK BACK WITH THE AMSTERDAM,

SHOW THAT SKETCH
TO EVERY EMPLOYEE.

- SHE WAS SURE.

- LIV, SHE WAS TRAUMATIZED.

YOU KNOW, SHE--

SHE MADE AN HONEST MISTAKE.

- NO, IT'S NOT A MISTAKE.
THAT'S HIM.

- VICKI, IT CAN'T BE.

- THAT ANIMAL RAPED ME
FOUR TIMES!

DO YOU THINK I DON'T KNOW
WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE?

- HE WAS IN RHODE ISLAND
TWO NIGHTS AGO.

- NO! NO, YOU CANNOT
JUST LET HIM WALK OUT OF HERE!

- WE HAVE NOTHING
TO HOLD HIM ON.

- HE'S GONNA FIND ME
AND HE'S GONNA KILL ME.

- VICKI!
- I'M SORRY!

I'M SORRY! PLEASE!
PLEASE!

PLEASE FORGIVE ME.
PLEASE, I SWEAR TO GOD!

THEY MADE ME TELL THEM
IT WAS YOU. I'M SORRY, PLEASE!

- I DON'T KNOW
WHO YOU THINK I AM!

[overlapping shouting]
- IT'S NOT HIM!

- PLEASE!
PLEASE DON'T HURT ME!

PLEASE DON'T HURT ME!

PLEASE!

[sobbing] PLEASE.

PLEASE.

[hyperventilating]

- VICKI, CALM DOWN.

[typing on
computer keyboard]

- YOU HERE ALL NIGHT?

- MANAGED TO GET
A COUPLE HOURS IN THE CRIB.

OHH, THANK YOU.

- HOW'S VICKI?

- SHE'S SCARED TO DEATH.

PATROL'S PARKED
OUTSIDE HER PLACE.

- LIV, HARRIS'S ALIBI
IS SOLID.

- ELLIOT, YOU SAW HER
IN THE HALLWAY.

SHE'S POSITIVE
THAT IT WAS HIM,

AND MY GUT TELLS ME
SHE'S RIGHT.

- OKAY, SO WHAT HAVE YOU GOT
TO BACK THAT UP?

- NOT MUCH.

HE'S A PRODUCT REP FOR
QUALITAS SURGICAL FOR 22 YEARS.

HE'S GOT A DOZEN
COMMUNITY AWARDS.

BUT HE'S NEVER BEEN MARRIED.

HE LIVES ALONE.
HE HAS NO KIDS.

PROBLEM WITH WOMEN?

- OR COMMITMENT OR HE'S GAY.

I MEAN, IT DOESN'T
MAKE HIM A RAPIST.

- THIS MIGHT.

THE DESK CLERK FROM PROVIDENCE
JUST EMAILED ME BACK.

I TOLD HIM TO GO OVER EVERY INCH
OF HARRIS'S HOTEL ROOM.

- WHAT'D HE FIND?

- MR. HARRIS HAD
TAKEN APART A WINDOW

BECAUSE IT DIDN'T
OPEN ALL THE WAY.

- YEAH, HOTELS DO THAT
SO CUSTOMERS DON'T JUMP.

- OR SO LOWLIFES
CAN'T CREEP OUT.

HIS ROOM IS ON
THE FIRST FLOOR.

- YOU'RE SURE
HE LEFT THE HOTEL?

HE ORDERED TWO MOVIES
AND ROOM SERVICE

THE NIGHT VICKI WAS RAPED.

- GREAT ALIBI--
TWO FLICKS AND A DINNER

MAKES IT LOOK LIKE
HE'S IN FOR THE NIGHT.

- WHILE HE WAS REALLY
DRIVING TO MANHATTAN.

HARRIS RENTED A 2010 TAURUS

TEN MINUTES BEFORE
HE CHECKED INTO THE HOTEL.

- AND RETURNED IT WHEN?

- 9:38 A.M.
THE NEXT MORNING.

- SO YOU'RE SAYING HARRIS
DROVE DOWN TO MANHATTAN

TO RAPE VICKI SAYERS

AND AVOIDED THE HOTEL
SECURITY CAMERAS

BY SLITHERING
IN AND OUT OF THE WINDOW?

- LIKE THE SNAKE THAT HE IS.

NOW THIS...
IS THE MOST DIRECT ROUTE

FROM HARRIS'S HOTEL ROOM

TO THE ALLEY

WHERE VICKI WAS ATTACKED.

- ALL RIGHT, WELL,
THAT ROUTE WOULD TAKE HIM

THROUGH THE LARCHMONT TOLLS
ON 95.

WE'D HAVE TO HAVE HIM
ON VIDEO.

- UNLESS HE GOT ONTO THE 287
ONCE HE LEFT CONNECTICUT

AND TOOK BROADWAY
INTO MANHATTAN.

HE WOULDN'T HIT ONE TOLL.

- THAT'S CONJECTURE,
NOT PROOF.

- OKAY, THE MAPPING PROGRAM
CALCULATES

THIS ROUTE AT 173 MILES--
THAT'S ONE WAY.

THAT MAKES IT 346 ROUNDTRIP.

HARRIS PUT 349.8 MILES
ON THAT RENTAL.

- THAT'S EXACTLY ENOUGH
TO MAKE THE TRIP

AND RETURN THE CAR, CAPTAIN.

THAT SON OF A BITCH
RAPED VICKI.

- HE GOES TO ALL THIS TROUBLE
TO COVER HIS TRACKS.

HE THINKS
HE'S MADE OF TEFLON.

- WELL, LET'S FIND A WAY
TO MAKE SOMETHING STICK.

- YOU WANT ME TO DO WHAT?

- STOP HIDING.

YOU'RE NEVER GONNA BE FREE

UNTIL YOU START
LIVING YOUR LIFE.

- I CAN'T.

- YOU CAN'T LET HARRIS
CONTROL YOU ANYMORE.

- NOW THIS IS MY FAULT?

- IT'S--IT'S NEVER
A VICTIM'S FAULT.

RAPISTS HAVE A SICK NEED
TO FEEL POWERFUL.

NOW, THE ONLY WAY
TO STOP HARRIS

IS TO TAKE THAT POWER AWAY.

- HE WILL KILL ME.

- VICKI, IF I HAVE
TO LIVE WITH YOU

FOR THE NEXT 20 YEARS,

I PROMISE YOU, HE'S NEVER
GONNA TOUCH YOU AGAIN.

- WHAT DO I DO?

- WE...

ARE GONNA GIVE HIM A TASTE
OF HIS OWN MEDICINE.

- HEY, BILL.
YOU BEHAVING YOURSELF?

- GOING MY WAY, BILLY?

- THINK THE KNICKS
GOT A CHANCE THIS YEAR?

[zipper zips]

- GO TO HELL.

- HEY, AREN'T YOU GONNA
WASH YOUR HANDS?

[door slams]

- AS YOU CAN SEE,
OUR SYSTEM IS VERSATILE,

DURABLE, AND BEST OF ALL,
WON'T BREAK THE BANK.

ANY QUESTIONS?

- YEAH, WHY DID YOU
RAPE VICKI?

- WHAT DID YOU SAY?

- I ASKED HIM
WHY HE RAPED VICKI.

- WHO'S VICKI?

- SOMEONE CALL SECURITY!

- THERE'S NO NEED FOR THAT.
NYPD.

JUST ANSWER THE QUESTION.

WHY DID YOU RAPE THAT WOMAN?

- EXCUSE ME.

- KEEP OUR CITY SAFE.

POLICE, TAKE ONE.

POLICE, TAKE ONE.

- GIVE ME THAT!

- POLICE, TAKE ONE.
KEEP OUR CITY SAFE.

- WHAT IN THE HELL
ARE YOU DOING?

- PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW
WHEN THERE'S SLIME

STINKING UP
THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD.

POLICE.
- THIS IS ILLEGAL!

- YEAH, CALL A COP.

POLICE, TAKE ONE.
HAVE A NICE DAY.

- [laughs] AND THAT'S
A TRUE STORY.

[spoon clanging on glass]

- LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!

CAN I HAVE
YOUR ATTENTION, PLEASE?

- DO YOU SEE THAT MAN?

YES, HIM.

HE'S STALKED ME AND RAPED ME
FOUR TIMES SINCE I WAS 16!

- I-I'M SORRY, EVERYBODY.

CLEARLY, THIS WOMAN
IS MISTAKING ME

FOR SOMEBODY ELSE.

CAN I SPEAK WITH YOU
PRIVATELY?

I WANT HER ARRESTED
FOR SLANDER.

- IT WOULD HAVE TO BE A LIE
FOR IT TO BE SLANDER.

- THEN I'LL SUE HER
FOR HARASSMENT.

I'LL SUE THE NYPD--
- GO AHEAD.

BUT YOU'LL HAVE TO TESTIFY.

AND EVERYONE ON THAT JURY'S
GONNA FIND OUT THE SICK,

DERANGED THINGS
THAT YOU DID TO HER.

- YOU CAN'T DO THIS.
- YOU WANNA MAKE A BET?

AND EVERY TIME YOU LOOK
OVER YOUR SHOULDER,

YOU'RE GONNA WONDER...

ARE THEY FOLLOWING ME?

- GET OUT OF MY FACE.

- YOU'RE MY BITCH NOW.

- YOU'RE ALL ALIKE.

EVERY ONE OF YOU.

- COME ON, VICKI.

WE'RE DONE HERE.

- YOU'RE SCREWING
WITH THE WRONG GUY!

- WE SHOULDN'T
HAVE DONE THAT.

HE DIDN'T SLIP.
YOU SAID HE WAS GONNA SLIP.

- HE JUST DID.

- VICKI WASN'T HARRIS'S
ONLY VICTIM.

- HOW DO YOU KNOW?

- HE SAID, "YOU'RE ALL THE SAME,
EVERY LAST ONE OF YOU."

ANYONE THAT HATES WOMEN
THAT MUCH

CAN'T JUST STOP AT ONE.

- NOW, HARRIS HITS THE ROAD
A COUPLE TIMES EACH YEAR--

YOU KNOW, TRADE SHOWS,
HOSPITALS.

HE'S GOT HIS CORPORATE
HEADQUARTERS IN LOS ANGELES.

SO WE SUBPOENAED
HIS FREQUENT FLYER ACCOUNTS.

COMPARED HIS TRAVEL DATES
WITH ATTACKS

IN THE CITIES
HE VISITED.

- AND WE FOUND TEN RAPES

WITH THE SAME M.O.

L.A., DETROIT, BIRMINGHAM,
CHICAGO, HOUSTON,

SAN ANTONIO, ALBUQUERQUE,

PHOENIX, OAKLAND,
AND SAN DIEGO.

- DO WE KNOW HOW
HE CHOOSES HIS VICTIMS?

- HE HUNTS THEM
IN HIS COMFORT ZONE.

HOSPITALS.

- FOUR NURSES, TWO DOCTORS,

AN ADMINISTRATOR,

A PHARMACIST,

AND EVEN A PATIENT.

- PLUS ONE CANDY STRIPER
BACK IN 1995.

- AND, LIKE, VICKI,
HE STALKS THEM,

THEN HE RAPES THEM MULTIPLE
TIMES TO KEEP THEM IN LINE.

- HARRIS HAS BEEN TERRORIZING
WOMEN ACROSS THE COUNTRY

FOR 20 YEARS.

- WILLIAM HARRIS RAPED
HOW MANY WOMEN?

- 11, INCLUDING VICKI SAYERS.

- DID ANY OF THEM I.D. HIM?

- VICKI'S THE ONLY ONE
THAT WE'VE INTERVIEWED.

- SO YOU'RE GOING OFF ONE HELL
OF A CRAZY THEORY.

- NO, VICKI PICKED HIM
OUT OF A LINEUP.

THAT'S ENOUGH TO ARREST HIM.

- IF SHE'D SEEN HIS FACE
DURING THE LAST ATTACK.

UNFORTUNATELY, SHE DIDN'T.

- SHERRI, THIS SICKO

HAS TERRORIZED WOMEN IN ALMOST
A DOZEN STATES.

- AND SHE WAS DISORIENTED
FROM A BASH IN THE HEAD.

HARRIS'S DEFENSE
WILL RIP HER TO SHREDS.

- SO CHARGE HIM WITH RAPING
VICKI BACK IN '98.

- I CAN'T.

THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS
RAN OUT IN 2000.

- NEW YORK STATE DROPPED
THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS

ON RAPE IN '06.

- IT DOESN'T MATTER.

RAPES BEFORE 2001
ARE OFF-LIMITS.

- OHH.

- LOOK, I REALLY
WANT TO HELP YOU,

BUT ALL YOU GOT
IS A RENTAL CAR

YOU THINK HARRIS DROVE
FROM PROVIDENCE TO THE CITY.

- WHAT ABOUT DNA?

- WE DON'T HAVE DNA.
- YES, WE DO.

FROM HARRIS'S
OTHER VICTIMS...

WHO WERE RAPED THE SAME WAY
VICKI WAS.

- I MIGHT BE ABLE
TO GET THOSE RAPES IN

AS PRIOR, UNCHARGED CRIMES.

- AND USE THEM TO PROVE
HARRIS'S I.D.

I THINK YOU HAVE
SOME CALLS TO MAKE.

- NO, IF I HAD DNA,
I WOULDN'T BE CALLING YOU.

OKAY, THANK YOU.

- WHO WAS THAT?

- DETECTIVE IN HOUSTON.

THEY HAVE A BACKLOG
OF 4,000 RAPE KITS.

HE SAYS HE'LL GET ME
THE RESULTS WHEN HE HAS THEM.

BIRMINGHAM,
MORE THAN 2,000 RAPE KITS.

PHOENIX HAS 4,100
UNTESTED RAPE KITS.

- ANY YESES?

- DETROIT, CHICAGO, L.A.,

ALL SAY THAT THEY HAVE VICTIMS
THAT MATCH HARRIS'S M.O.

- AND THAT'S NOT ENOUGH UNTIL
THEY TRACK DOWN THOSE RAPE KITS.

- I'M GONNA GO
GIVE 'EM A HAND.

- SO WHO'S OUR VICTIM?

- NAME'S DANIELLE TAYLOR.

RAPED TWICE BY THE SAME PERP
IN '99 AND '03.

- WELL, DNA FROM HER RAPE KIT

SHOULD PROVE THAT
IT IS WILLIAM HARRIS.

WE HAVE HIM IN DETROIT

WHEN BOTH ATTACKS OCCURRED.

- THE KIT'S IN HERE.

- YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME.

- SEE ME LAUGHING?

WE'VE COUNTED
ALMOST 7,000 KITS.

WE THINK THERE MIGHT BE
AS MANY AS 16,000 KITS HERE.

- HAVE ANY OF THEM
BEEN TESTED?

- SO FAR ONLY ABOUT 1,200.

OUR LAB WAS SO SCREWED UP,
THE POWERS THAT BE

SHUT IT DOWN
TWO YEARS AGO.

STATE LAB DOES OUR CASES NOW,
BUT...

THEY DON'T HAVE
THE MONEY OR THE EYEBALLS

TO GET THROUGH THIS MESS.

- SO...WHAT HAPPENED
TO MS. TAYLOR?

- UP AND LEFT TOWN.

LEFT NO FORWARDING ADDRESS.

PAPERWORK SAYS HER KIT
OUGHT TO BE RIGHT HERE.

'COURSE,
THAT DON'T MEAN MUCH.

- COULD IT BE ANYWHERE ELSE?

- ONLY OTHER PLACE WOULD BE

THE PRECINCT WHERE
THE RAPES OCCURRED.

- WELL, GREAT.
LET'S GO THERE.

- CITY BOARDED UP THE PRECINCT
ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO.

IT BURNT TO THE GROUND
LAST MONTH.

MAYBE YOU'LL HAVE
BETTER LUCK IN CHICAGO.

- WE GOT LUCKY.

FOR ONCE, THESE THINGS

WERE RIGHT WHERE THE PAPERWORK
SAID THEY SHOULD BE.

- SO WHY WEREN'T THEY
SENT FOR TESTING?

- WELL, FIRST ATTACK
WAS IN '97.

THE DETECTIVE TOLD THE VICTIM
EVEN IF HE SENT IT,

THE LAB WOULDN'T
GET TO IT FOR A YEAR,

AND SHE SHOULD TRY
TO PUT THE RAPE BEHIND HER.

SECOND ATTACK WAS IN 2001.

I DON'T KNOW WHY.

I DON'T BELIEVE THIS.

THE SEAL'S BEEN BROKEN.

IT'S EMPTY!

NO WONDER IT WAS SO LIGHT.

- THIS ONE HAS MOLD
ALL OVER IT.

[cell phone ringing]
DNA'S GOT TO BE CONTAMINATED.

- I'M SORRY YOU CAME
ALL THIS WAY

ON A WILD GOOSE CHASE.

- MAYBE IT WASN'T.

LAPD JUST HIT
THE JACKPOT

ON MY VICTIM'S
PREVIOUS RAPE.

- REX WINTERS.
- OLIVIA BENSON.

- HI.
- SO...VICKI'S RAPE KIT.

- LAB'S STILL PROCESSING
THE DNA.

- WHY'D IT TAKE SO LONG
TO TEST IT?

- 'CAUSE WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF
KITS SITTING IN THE FREEZER.

HOW BAD'S YOUR BACKLOG?

- WE DON'T HAVE ONE.

EVERY KIT IS TESTED
AFTER AN ASSAULT,

AND THE RESULTS ARE FORWARDED
BACK TO US

AND TO THE D.A.

SO HOW LONG TILL WE GET
VICKI'S RESULTS?

- I'M NOT SURE,
BUT I DO HAVE SOMETHING ELSE.

WILLIAM HARRIS RENTS
A STORAGE LOCKER

IN BOYLE HEIGHTS.

- THE COMPANY HE WORKS FOR
IS HEADQUARTERED OUT HERE.

BUT WHY DOES
HE NEED A LOCKER?

- THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.

BUT HE'S HAD IT
SINCE AUGUST 2000.

- THAT'S RIGHT AFTER
VICKI WAS RAPED.

- HOW FAST CAN YOU
GET A WARRANT?

- IT'S HIS SAFE PLACE.

WHEN HE'S HERE ON BUSINESS,

HE DROPS IN TO GET OFF.

- 3,000 MILES AWAY
FROM WHERE HE LIVES.

HEY.

- SARAH MILLER, SAN DIEGO.

JAMIE CLARK, HOUSTON.

SUSAN DENNING, BIRMINGHAM.

JOSIE FRANKLIN, OAKLAND.

AND HERE'S VICKI.

HE EVEN PUT THE DATES IN
OF WHEN HE ATTACKED HER.

- THESE BOXES ARE DATED TOO.

MUST BE THEIR CLOTHES.

- HE'S GOT HOME MOVIES.

OH, MY GOD.

THAT'S VICKI.

HE'S BEEN FILMING HER
FOR YEARS.

- BENSON!

OKAY.
OKAY, THANKS.

- NOW WHAT?

- THAT WAS THE LAB.

THE DNA FROM VICKI'S RAPE KIT
IS DEGRADED.

- OH, I CAN'T CATCH A BREAK.
- BUT...

THE TECH'S WILLING
TO TESTIFY

HE'S GOT ENOUGH
MATCHING ALLELES

TO I.D. WILLIAM HARRIS.

- I'M GONNA COLLAR
THIS GUY'S ASS,

AND THEN I'M GONNA SEND IT
TO YOU ON A SILVER PLATTER.

- [chuckles] IT'S YOURS.

CALIFORNIA HAS A TEN-YEAR
STATUTE.

CLOCK RAN OUT ON VICKI'S RAPE
THREE WEEKS AGO.

- YOU KNEW ALL ALONG THAT YOU
COULDN'T PROSECUTE HARRIS?

- BUT I KNEW YOU COULD.

GO GET THE PRICK.

- THIS IS JUST ONE

OF THE MANY VIDEOS
OF VICKI SAYERS

DISCOVERED INSIDE
THE DEFENDANT'S STORAGE LOCKER

IN LOS ANGELES
BY DETECTIVE BENSON.

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS VIDEO
BEFORE, VICKI?

- NO, THIS IS THE FIRST TIME.

- AND DO YOU RECOGNIZE
THAT YOUNG LADY?

- YES, THAT'S ME.

- VICKI, IS THE MAN
WHO RAPED YOU IN THE ALLEY

THE SAME MAN WHO RAPED YOU
TEN YEARS AGO

IN LOS ANGELES?

- YES.
AND IT'S HIM.

- LET THE RECORD SHOW THAT
THE WITNESS HAS IDENTIFIED

THE DEFENDANT,
WILLIAM HARRIS.

I HAVE NOTHING FURTHER.

- I'M SORRY FOR YOU'VE ENDURED,
MS. AYERS.

BUT YOU'VE TESTIFIED THAT
IN THE FIRST THREE ATTACKS,

YOU SAW THE PERPETRATOR.

- YES, HIM.

- DID YOU SEE YOUR ATTACKER'S
FACE THIS LAST TIME?

- NO, I DIDN'T.

- SO YOU DIDN'T ACTUALLY
SEE THE MAN WHO RAPED YOU

IN THAT ALLEY?
- NO, BUT I HEARD HIM.

HE WHISPERED,
"YOU DIDN'T BEHAVE."

- WE'VE ALSO HEARD TESTIMONY

THAT THE DNA FROM YOUR ASSAULT
IN CALIFORNIA

IS NOT AN EXACT MATCH.

AND YOU DIDN'T SEE
YOUR ALLEGED RAPIST.

ISN'T IT POSSIBLE
YOU MADE A MISTAKE?

- EVERY DAY FOR 15 YEARS,

I HAVE FEARED FOR MY LIFE.

EVERY TIME I LEAVE MY HOUSE,
I'M AFRAID HE'S GONNA ATTACK ME.

EVERY NIGHT IS THE NIGHT
THAT HE'S COMING BACK.

EVERY SHADOW IS WHERE
HE'S HIDING.

EVERY NIGHTMARE
IS ABOUT HIM.

AS SURE
AS I LIVE AND BREATHE,

WILLIAM HARRIS IS THE MAN
WHO RAPED ME IN THAT ALLEY.

- I KNOW YOU BELIEVE THAT.

NOTHING FURTHER.

- YOU MAY STEP DOWN,
MS. AYERS.

- THE PEOPLE REST,
YOUR HONOR.

- THIS HEARING IS TO DETERMINE
WHETHER EVIDENCE

OF AN UNCHARGED CRIME
FROM ANOTHER STATE

CAN BE USED HERE

TO IDENTIFY THE DEFENDANT
AS MS. SAYERS' RAPIST.

IT IS A TRAVESTY
THAT THE EVIDENCE

WHICH COULD PROVE WILLIAM HARRIS
RAPED VICKI SAYERS

SAT UNTESTED
FOR MORE THAN A DECADE.

UNFORTUNATELY,
THIS HAPPENS EVERY DAY.

ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.

BUT ONCE THE EVIDENCE
WAS FINALLY TESTED,

TOO MUCH TIME HAD PASSED.

SO THE DNA HAD BECOME
SIGNIFICANTLY DEGRADED.

AND BECAUSE THE SAMPLE WAS
STORED IN CALIFORNIA,

THE PEOPLE CAN'T PROVE

THE CHAIN OF CUSTODY
WAS PRESERVED.

THEREFORE I HAVE NO CHOICE
BUT TO RULE THE DNA

INSUFFICIENT TO CORROBORATE
MS. SAYERS IDENTIFICATION

OF MR. HARRIS.

I AM VERY SORRY,
BUT I HAVE NO CHOICE.

THIS CASE IS DISMISSED
WITHOUT PREJUDICE.

THE PEOPLE CAN REFILE CHARGES
IF NEW EVIDENCE IS UNCOVERED.

WE ARE ADJOURNED.

- HOW CAN SHE DO THAT?

- WE'LL GET HIM, VICKI.
I PROMISE.

- JUST STOP MAKING PROMISES
THAT YOU CAN'T KEEP.

YOU'RE NEVER GONNA GET HIM.

I WAS STUPID TO THINK THAT
THERE'D EVER BE ANY JUSTICE.

- VICKI...

[door slams]

[sighs]

- THE FBI's TAKEN OVER
HARRIS'S CASE.

I ALREADY GAVE THEM ALL
THE VICTIMS' DRIVER'S LICENSES.

THEY'LL BE COMING BACK LATER
FOR THE REST.

- I WONDER HOW MANY GUYS LIKE
HARRIS COULD HAVE BEEN STOPPED

IF THOSE RAPE KITS
HAD BEEN TESTED.

- WELL, UNTIL THEY ARE,

EVERYONE IS JUST A VICTIM
WHO'S NEVER GONNA SEE JUSTICE.

- IT'S LIKE WE'RE TELLING THEM
THAT THEY DON'T MATTER

AND WE'RE TELLING THE PERPS
THAT THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH IT.

OH, MY GOD.

- WHAT?

- WE MAY HAVE HAD HIM
ALL ALONG.

- VICKI!

VICKI! OPEN THE DOOR!
[ringing buzzer]

IT'S DETECTIVE BENSON.
IT'S IMPORTANT.

- WHAT DO YOU WANT NOW?

- I NEED TO ASK YOU...

ABOUT WHEN HARRIS ATTACKED YOU
IN 1998.

- WHY WOULD YOU WANT ME
TO GO THROUGH THAT AGAIN?

- HOW LONG DID HE STAY?

- WHY?

- JUST TELL ME.

HOW LONG DID HARRIS STAY?

- ALL NIGHT
AND INTO THE NEXT DAY.

- DID HE FORCE YOU
AGAINST YOUR WILL?

- I ALREADY TOLD YOU,
HE TIED ME UP.

- WITH WHAT?

WHAT DID HE TIE YOU UP WITH?

- DUCT TAPE.

HE DIDN'T EVEN TAKE IT OFF...
BEFORE HE LEFT.

IT TOOK HOURS FOR ME
TO BREAK FREE

AND CALL THE POLICE.

- VICKI, DO YOU REMEMBER
WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT DUCT TAPE?

- YES.

YES, THE POLICE OFFICERS,
THEY PUT IT IN A BAG.

THEY SAID THAT THEY
WERE GONNA KEEP IT

IN CASE THE DETECTIVES
EVER FOUND A SUSPECT.

BUT NOBODY EVER CALLED ME.

- BECAUSE...YOUR
POLICE REPORT GOT LOST.

WE NEVER KNEW IT WAS THERE.

- I HAVE TO GO TO SEATTLE
AND PORTLAND NEXT WEEK,

BUT I'LL BE BACK
FRIDAY NIGHT.

WHEN CAN I SEE YOU AGAIN?

[handcuff snaps]
- IN ABOUT 25 YEARS.

- I HAVEN'T GONE NEAR
THAT WOMAN!

- WILLIAM HARRIS,
YOU'RE UNDER ARREST.

- WHAT THE HELL FOR THIS TIME?

- KIDNAPPING
IN THE FIRST DEGREE.

- I DIDN'T KIDNAP HER.

- YEAH, YOU DID.
WHEN YOU RAPED HER IN '98.

- YOU HELD HER HOSTAGE
IN HER APARTMENT

FOR MORE THAN 12 HOURS.

AND WE HAVE THE DUCT TAPE
TO PROVE IT.

- YOU CAN'T DO THIS!
- WELL, YEAH, WE CAN.

AND WE ARE.

SEE, THERE'S NO STATUTE
OF LIMITATIONS ON KIDNAPPING.

- VICKI, PLEASE TELL THEM
THEY'RE WRONG.

YOU KNOW IT WASN'T RAPE.
I LOVE YOU.

I LO--UH, I LOVE YOU!

- NOW I'LL ALWAYS KNOW
WHERE YOU ARE.

BE A GOOD BOY.

BEHAVE YOURSELF.
