Hunter Mazelon was a juvenile delinquent who was a suspect in several rapes in New York and Oregon and a murder in New York.


It turns out that the true reason behind Hunter's dark behavior was because he was repeatedly molested by his babysitter Ellen Huffner when he was seven. His mother Bree didn't find out about it until months later, after his behavior had visibly changed, and she managed to get him to talk about it. However, she refused to file charges against Ellen, later on telling the SVU team that she simply wanted Hunter to "forget about it" so he could become a normal kid, which was also the motive behind her never having him counseled about his assault. It is believed that his encounters with Ellen is what ultimately transformed Hunter into a sociopath.

In the end, he gets his revenge on Ellen by killing her: at first he only wants to know why she raped him but when she refuses to tell him, he resorts to killing her to make sure that no one would suffer the painful life he had. (SVU: "Delinquent")
