If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Although I usually watch only the first few minutes of Law and Order (where ordinary folks find a body), I wonder what unbelievable twists the writers add to ripped-from-the-headlines storylines. Example: the Laci and Scott Peterson case-workalike L&O plot. My suggestion: the husband is using the wife's murder as an alibi so the police don't suspect him of other murders!

Jennifer and Grace thought this a fine twist.
