|~ Mitch Wilkens threatening Olivia Benson.|
Eric Wayne Procter, better known as Mitch Wilkens, is the main antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Soulless". He is a sociopath who murdered a toddler when he was 10, and commits a rape and two other murders after being released.
He was portrayed by Logan Marshall-Green.
Born Eric Wayne Proctor, he is a sadistic sociopath who committed several burglaries from a young age. At the age of 10, he raped and tortured his three-year-old neighbor Tommy Leggett before burning him alive. He was sentenced to 11 years in a juvenile facility, but conned authorities into letting him out two years early.
After changing his name to Mitch Wilkens, he manipulated his mother, Sally, into believing he was cured by getting a job as a parking attendant at an upscale hotel and finding an apartment in a brownstone building; unbeknownst to her, however, he frequently "borrowed" the guests' cars to go on joyrides, and murdered Emily Owens, the wealthy old woman who owned the building, so he could live there rent-free.
At the hotel, he befriended three wealthy young men - Seth Woolford III, Andrew Kenworthy, and Davis Harrington - by pretending to be Max Van Horn, heir to a cosmetics fortune, and partied with them at the best clubs in New York City. He met 15-year-old Chloe Dutton, the younger sister of one of his new friends' girlfriends, at a club and dragged her into the men's room, where he led his friends in gang-raping her. He then kidnapped her from the hospital and took her back to the club, where he drowned her by holding her head in a toilet in order to keep her from telling the police what he did to her.
NYPD Special Victims Unit Detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler interview Wilkens while investigating Chloe's rape and murder, and he steers them toward suspecting his new friends, who in turn all blame "Max" for the murder. After realizing that "Max" and Wilkens are the same person, Benson and Stabler arrest him. Wilkens claims that the other three goaded him into raping Chloe, and incriminates them in the murder. In return, he receives a lenient jail sentence, while the others are sentenced to decades in prison.
After seeing Wilkens' picture in a newspaper article about the murder, Tommy's mother Linda tells Benson, Stabler, and Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Cabot who Wilkens really is and what he did, causing them to believe that he is the killer after all. Unfortunately, Cabot is unable to renege on Wilkens' plea deal. Wilkens gloats about getting away with the rape, but once again denies committing the murder, claiming to have been with his mother at the time. Sally backs up his story, while insisting that he did not know what he was doing when he killed Tommy, and that he is "better" now. When Benson points out that the bracelet he gave her once belonged to Chloe, however, Sally realizes that he stole it, and he killed Chloe. Wilkens is then charged with murder.
During Wilkens' trial, a distraught Sally testifies that she lied about Wilkens being with her on the night of the murder, and about the bracelet. Sobbing, she finally admits that her son is a monster, and pleads with the trial judge to put him away for life to prevent him from killing again. Wilkens is found guilty of raping and murdering Chloe, and sentenced to life in prison. Benson and Stabler, who learned of Owens' disappearance while investigating Wilkens, ask him if he killed her, and entreat him to tell them where he hid her body in order to prove that he is not beyond redemption. Wilkens denies knowing anything about her death, however, and smugly tells the detectives to let him know if they find her as he is led away to begin his sentence.
