Mark Ocurro is the main antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Baggage". He is a sadistic serial killer who rapes, tortures, and murders women he encounters while delivering their lost luggage.
He was portrayed by Nelson Vasquez.
Ocurro is a sadistic psychopath who tortures and hogties women, glues their mouths shut, and kills them. He rapes them if they are "natural", but glues their vaginas shut if they have body enhancements like dyed hair or breast implants. As a child, he tortured animals, tying one cat to a bus and throwing another one out of a fourth floor window.
As an adult, he works at an airline as a lost baggage delivery man, preying on female passengers. In addition to collecting violent pornography, he reads forensic textbooks and true crime books about serial killers to perfect his killing technique and stay one step ahead of law enforcement.
Detectives Elliot Stabler and Victor Moran investigate the murders and connect Ocurro to one of the victims. They catch him by having a female detective pose as a passenger, and arrest him when he tries to attack her. He is charged with six murders, but acquitted after medical examiner Melinda Warne] rules that one of his victims, who was burned alive, had to have been killed during a time period in which Ocurro had an alibi, visiting his mother and her bridge club.
Stabler and Moran investigate further, however, and discover that Ocurro had used the victim's kiln to accelerate her body's decomposition, making it seem as if she was killed later than she actually was. They arrest him as he is tying up and torturing another woman. After being caught, he confesses to the murders as well to two additional homicides in the Dominican Republic. He is then put in prison for life.
