Russell Ramsay was a convicted statutory rapist who was the prime suspect of the rape of Siobhan Miller.


Ramsay was sent to prison for statutory rape by the disapproving parents of his then-15-year-old girlfriend, Shelly Leevack. Five years later, he was released and in a relationship with Shelly, only to end up in the crosshairs of grifter Siobhan Miller. Approaching him at the grand opening of Thorpe Palace Hotel, the supposedly-17-year-old Siobhan (who was actually 23) offered Ramsay sex. Because he and Shelly had a little quarrel at the moment, he accepted. When they finished, Ramsay left. Unbeknownst to him, Siobhan then had her sister-in-law work her over to make her look like she was raped, and then stumbled into the lobby, all as part of an elaborate plan to get $10 million out of the hotel's wealthy owners.

Ramsay was thrown in jail for the supposed rape, and because of his record, nobody believed him when he said the sex had been completely consensual. Only Shelly stood beside him, which contributed to the Special Victims Unit rethinking the case. Eventually, it was determined that Ramsay was innocent all along, but before he could be released, he was beaten, raped, and murdered by at least one other inmate at Rikers. As a result, Siobhan was arrested because of her false allegation leading to Ramsay's death. (SVU: "Taken")
