Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of Jennifer Gaylin who was possibly the victim of a drive-by shooting. She was a social worker and quite popular at the community center where she worked. Her father Doug Gaylin is convinced the killing was racially motivated but the detectives learn she may have been using drugs to boost her sex drive. It turns out the victim was heavy into the S&M scene and had a partner, TV reporter Stu Steiner. When the police find him dead in his apartment they learn from the FBI that there have been 3 other very similar killings in other cities. From another participant in the S&M scene they learn that Eddie Chandler might be behind the killing. Chandler is arrested and charged with first degree murder. His lawyer, Al Archer, will argue that prolonged exposure to TV violence led to his sociopathic behavior.
Did You Know?
One of the kids Briscoe and Curtis interviewed said he saw the victim buying codeine from a street dealer, that it is used often as a party drug and a sex drug. However it makes no sense for codeine to be used to enhance a sexual experience. Codeine, like all opiates, actually dampens sexual desire in both men and women, but especially men because it greatly reduces testosterone levels. One of the most common side effects of opiates for both sexes is a decreased sex drive and in men opiates often cause erectile dysfunction. See more
