After a young woman is found raped and murdered near a nightclub with five hundred dollars stuffed into her mouth, Benson and Stabler follow the fingerprint trail on the money to attorney Jason Whitaker, whose sole responsibility seems to be handling the trust for the wealthy Duvall family. Soon detectives are convinced that Gabriel Duvall is their rapist, but don't have quite enough evidence to put him away. Novak is working on both the case and a terrified former victim when she is brutally attacked in her office late at night.

When trying to figure out who took Nina Zergin into custody Captain Cragen says it wasn't the fed's because he checked with the FBI who said they did not have her in custody. The first thing they should have done is checked with the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) to see if they took her into custody. After 9/11 the DHS became responsible for immigration and customs enforcement (among other things); in 2002 the INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) was shut down and reorganized into ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), which is a division of the DHS. Since Nina is an illegal alien it would stand to reason that there was a good chance that she was taken into custody by ICE. See more

Save it. I probably would've put Gabriel Duvall through a window.
