Luke Edmunds was a police officer and serial killer.


Edmunds, along with Les Cooper, would murder drug dealers while on duty over the years. They had originally been investigated by authorities for their frequent fatal confrontations with criminals, but the cases ended up being dismissed due to a lack of evidence. When Carlos Torres bled to death in prison as a result of being sodomized, they were investigated again. Edmunds eventually confessed to the murders. It was later revealed that Edmunds murdered them for revenge, while Cooper was paid to murder those dealers by another inmate, Hector Ramirez.

Edmunds was imprisoned for the murders, along with Cooper, and he eventually committed suicide. (SVU: "Rotten")
