20 Law & Order: SVU Episodes That Were Ripped From The Headlines
“FOOLS FOR LOVE,” SEASON 10, EPISODE 15
After a man is accused of brutally killing his girlfriend’s sister and then another victim, the SVU squad is pretty certain they caught the right guy. They find his girlfriend, also brutally beaten and injured, and she points the finger on her boyfriend as well. However, things are only made more complicated when they realize that his girlfriend was actually a co-conspirator, and played a huge part in the murder of her own sister. This episode was based on a real-life couple, the “Barbie and Ken Killers,” or Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka, who killed Karla’s sister, as well as two other victims.
