John Victor Bodine is a pimp and serial killer.

History[edit | edit source]

Victor was a pimp who charmed several girls into joining his prostitution ring, tricking them into believing he was their boyfriend. Some of these girls were underage. He would also sell some of the girls to clients, calling it an "adoption". Victor was extremely abusive and possessive towards his girls, even killing some of them by beating them to death.

He was arrested after his third victim, Chantal Vanner, was found floating in the river, and suspicion was placed on him. Meanwhile, detectives try to get the testimony of Belinda Holt, another of Victor's girls, and are successful. After being imprisoned, Victor met up with an acquaintance of his, Jason Young, who was also incarcerated. With Young's help, he was able to walk out of prison and attacked Sister Peg, who was taking care of Belinda, and kidnapped Belinda.

Detectives Elliot Stabler and Dani Beck find Victor at a loft he owns, and they engage in a standoff with him as he uses Belinda as a human shield. The two then manage to flee with Stabler and Beck in pursuit. After a short chase, Victor throws Belinda over a balcony and continues running, but Stabler rescues Belinda in time. Beck corners Victor as he tries to run in an SUV, and is forced to shoot and kill him when he tries to run her over. (SVU: "Underbelly")
