C Block Crime, Media and Society 12 -  Today we'll watch the Law & Order Special Victims Unit episode "Selfish". From the Law & Order Wiki:

When it is reported by Ruth Walker that her two-year-old granddaughter, Sierra Walker, is missing Detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler investigate. After rounds of interrogation and a failed Amber Alert, Benson and Stabler believe that the prime suspect is none other than Sierra's young and irresponsible mother, Ashlee Walker.

Yes, we've done Casey Anthony all week and this episode is clearly based on the Casey Anthony case. From the Business Insider During the tenth season of Law & Order: SVU, the show's nineteenth episode featured a young mother accused of killing her child so that she can party more. In the real-life version of the crime, Anthony was accused in 2008 of murdering her daughter Caylee. Police initially became suspicious of Anthony after she waited a month to report Caylee's disappearance. The television episode mirrored the real-life saga in more ways than one. In both cases, a grandma reported the young girl's disappearance and complained the mother's car smelled like a dead body. And both the TV mother and Anthony left their daughters with secondary caregivers and then blamed the babysitter for the disappearance.
