  • Law and Order Special Victims Unit!

    After a prostitute is found stabbed and set on fire, the Special Victims Unit are ont he lookout for any clues leading to the perp. The entire unit is unable to find this guy until the death toll reaches four. After a tip comes into the station, Benson and Stabler find suspect Daniel Varney. He claims that God has been telling him to kill his victims in an attempt to cleanse and purify their souls. Daniel is then given a psychiatric evaluation and it is determined that he is suffering from a severe case of syphilis which is contributing to his deteriorating mental condition. Daniel was unaware of his condition because the life insurance company to which he applied for coverage, failed to report the illness. This is a great episode and definitely one of the best I've seen. It is so sad that big companies are willing to over look small details in order to make sure that they can make money. You never know what could happen to someone like Daniel Varney.
