First Appearance "Friending Emily"

Taylor Culphers is a fifteen-year-old girl whose sister Emily was kidnapped by a pedophile named Peter.


When their parents Ron and Liz allowed her and her sister to visit New York City, Taylor became bored of the museums and was invited to a frat party by Jane Kalreiss. While at the frat party, Taylor made out with different college students and ended up having sex with a 21-year-old man, while Emily got lost and was kidnapped by Peter.

Friending Emily

When Detectives Rollins and Fin enter the room she was having sex in, they arrested the student for statutory rape, because Taylor is only fifteen, and Rollins asks her where her sister is. When Taylor learns that her sister is gone she checks her phone and sees the video Emily made of her abduction, much to her worry. Later, when she is being questioned by Rollins and Benson at the precinct, they tell her that Kalreiss installed malware on her phone so that she and Peter can learn more about her and Emily. As a result, she begins to blame herself, but Benson tells her that doing so will not help them find her sister.

When the detectives discover what happened to her sister, Benson tells Taylor that they don't know where Emily is but that she is indeed alive. When Taylor asks how she knows that, Benson does not answer, but Taylor deduces that her sister is being used to make child pornography, which causes her to cry and regret going to the party. When her parents get to the precinct, Taylor tries to apologize for what happened. Ron and Liz get into a fight with each other about letting her and Emily come to New York, forcing the detectives to separate them and ask questions, while Amaro takes Taylor to get food. Eventually, when the detectives find a video of Kalreiss, they ask Taylor to identify her, and she confirms that she is the one who invited her to the party. When Emily is found, she is brought back to the precinct, where she is reunited with Taylor and their parents. (SVU: "Friending Emily")
