Casey Anthony: Law & Order “Ripped From the Headlines” Episode Upcoming

UPDATE: Saw the episode tonight. Definitely saw some parallels. Thoughts from those who watched?

It looks like a “Casey Anthony” episode of Law & Order SVU is going to hit the airwaves. Make sure that you check out the TV Guy Hal Boedeker for more information.

From the Orlando Sentinel:

The three series in the “Law & Order” franchise borrow from the headlines, and this “SVU” lifts liberally from the Anthony saga to establish a plot.

Let me count the ways:

1. A grandma (Gail O’Grady of “NYPD Blue”) goes to detectives about her missing granddaughter and complains, “The car smells like a dead body.”

2. The child’s mother (Hilary Duff of “Lizzie McGuire”) alleges that a babysitter took the little girl. And that babysitter is named Maria Hernandez or Fernandez. (We meet the young mom as she cleans out her car trunk and blames the stench on spoiled meat.)

3. The detectives’ boss asks what kind of mother goes off to party and leaves her kid with a woman she barely knows.

4. The young mother steals and buys a shovel.

5. The young mother has been lying since the day she could talk, and she won’t grow up, her mother complains. Grandma O’Grady announces that he has demanded that lazy Duffy find a job — and even cracked the young woman in the mouth.

6. Pictures of the young mom partying surface. “I’m young. I’m allowed to have fun,” Duff says.

More from the Orlando Sentinel:

This week’s episode of NBC‘s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit has one or two eerie parallels to the Casey Anthony case. For instance, a grandmother (played by Gail O’Grady) goes to police and complains about a stench in a car.

“That had the buzzers going off in your head,” series executive producer Neal Baer told me.

Well, yeah. But how should I feel when I hear that?

“You can feel any way you like,” Baer said. “You shouldn’t jump to conclusions.”

Baer told me he is particularly high on the episode, which airs at 10 p.m. Tuesday on WESH-Channel 2.

Yet reading too much into the plot would be wrong, Baer said. “You may think it’s something familiar, but it turns out it’s not,” Baer said.

    Guess the Show’s “Writers” must be out with the
    “Swine Flu” this week…. Ah, no Problem, just do The “Casey Anthony Story”. Yeah, Okay, THAT’S really about “Law” and “Order”! Think I’ll get “Ripped” while I’m watching it.

  3. You can enjoy huge discount of 75% off here last
    chaos gold. Let her know her bad attitude is unacceptable and you will not
    tolerate it. Most of the law schools that are providing education in international trade law also provide scholarship for law students.

    Law school might be worth it, but consider your options carefully to be
    sure. It has a wealth of books with considerable strengths in the law,
    Direct Taxation, FEMA, SEBI, Banking, Service Tax, Central Excise, Customs,
    Import, Export, etc. Regular communication should be incorporated to create a good interaction between the lawyers.
