Fire Under the Veil Erin Garret


(After McCoy reported Easton Construction to immigration to get Julio Rodriguez to testify against Carl Easton.)

Connie Rubirosa: Ali had his [green] card pulled for tampering with Erin's movie. He's on his way to Pakistan and Julio to Colombia.
Jack McCoy: And Easton Construction filed with the Attorney General's office for dissolution.
Connie Rubirosa: You're a one-man border patrol, Jack.
Jack McCoy: You give me way too much credit.
Connie Rubirosa: I don't think so. You cleaned house.
Jack McCoy: Not really. You're forgetting [murder victim] Erin Garrett had a Jamaican nanny.

Background information and notes

  • This episode was inspired by the case of actress-director (and one-time L&O guest star) Adrienne Shelly, who was killed by a young Ecuadorean construction worker who then tried to make her death look like a suicide.
