Holden March (alias The Pattern 13 Rapist) was the prime suspect in a crime spree involving two sexual assaults and three murders.


Holden's parents were divorced, and he moved out of Manhattan to live with his mother and her new husband in Nyack. He eventually returned to Manhattan for school. Because he was borderline-autistic, he had difficulties in socializing with other people and especially getting a girlfriend, despite his high intelligence. As a result, he became frustrated and made a video diary of his social troubles, in which he dictated his beliefs. Eventually, Holden's social frustrations escalated into an uncontrollable rage, and he decided to go on a crime spree to draw attention to himself.

Suspicion was eventually placed on him after he was identified by his former boss at a restaurant. However, as Detectives Olivia Benson and Nick Amaro could bring him in for questioning, Holden makes another video of himself with them and proclaims they are trying to arrest him without a warrant, which attracts the attention of bystanders and forces Benson and Amaro to leave. He then escapes with two handguns in his possession. When discovered at a school during a hostage situation, in Detective Amanda Rollins' attempt to arrest him, Holden was shot to death by other police officers. (SVU: "Holden's Manifesto")
