I'm fixed on you, and until I'm dead, I'll always be in your head, just like your mother has somebody in her head. We're joined at the hip now, aren't we?
~ White taunting Olivia Benson.

Richard White is the main antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Stalked". He is a serial rapist, stalker, and murderer who becomes fixated on Detective Olivia Benson.

He was portrayed by Bruce Kirkpatrick.


When Richard White was a child, his father committed suicide, leaving him to be raised by his emotionally abusive mother. White blamed her for his father's death, and grew up to hate all women. As an adult, he became a successful realtor, but used his wealth and social status to prey on women; he would abuse and degrade any woman he was in a relationship with, and stalk them when they left him to punish them for wounding his inflated ego. He even stalked and harassed his business partner, Kimberly Phillips, until she agreed to help him defraud their clients.

The law finally caught up with him when was convicted of raping his ex-girlfriend, Louise Billings, for which he was put on the sex offender registry; he did not stop terrorizing her, however, and continued stalking her years afterward.

The Special Victims Unit encounter White while investigating the rape and murder of Assistant District Attorney Karen Fitzgerald, who had prosecuted him for raping Billings. Detective Olivia Benson interrogates White and angers him by asserting control over him, so he tries to turn the conversation around by mentioning details about Benson's personal life - and she realizes that he has been stalking her, as well. She is forced to release him, but is determined to bring him to justice.

After Billings talks to Benson and her partner Elliot Stabler about him, White kills her. He calls Benson and taunts her, saying he will only surrender to her if she meets with him in Central Park, where he murdered Fitzgerald. There, he takes a hostage and attacks Benson, before being arrested.

During an interrogation with Benson, White confesses to killing Fitzgerald, but refuses to say how exactly he did it in an effort to dodge the death penalty. He then taunts her by saying that he will always be in her head; he also tries to intimidate Stabler by alluding to his wife and children. He is then presumably sent to prison for murder, rape and stalking.


  • Richard White is named after the American actor and opera singer, who is best known for playing the voice of Gaston LeGume in Disney's Beauty and the Beast.
  • White could be seen as a precursor to William Lewis, another serial rapist who becomes obsessed with Benson in a later season of SVU.
