This is one of my personal favorite episodes of Law & Order: SVU because of a guest appearance by Hilary Duff. Basically, Ashlee’s (played by Duff) mother suspects something has gone horribly wrong when her granddaughter — Ashlee’s daughter — goes missing. Grandma immediately fears that her daughter murdered her granddaughter, due to her partying ways and negligent parenting.Clearly, this episode was inspired by the Casey Anthony trial. Somehow, the episode derails into the debate over the anti-vaccine movement, because it comes to light that Ashlee’s daughter actually died of mumps, passed to her by a classmate. We don’t really know, either.
