I didn't force Shawn. He seduced me. How could I deny him? I never beat him like Jansen beat his boys! It's not the same thing!
~ Walt Massey rationalizing his abuse of his stepson.

Walt Massey is the main antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Angels". He is a member of a pedophile ring that smuggles young boys into the U.S. from Latin American countries and "adopts" them so they can sexually abuse them.

He was portrayed by Michael Hayden.


Early life

Massey is a successful pediatric dentist in New York City who is also a pedophile who targets young boys. He and his friends Bret Jansen and Stewart Lynch regularly book vacations to Latin American countries through a human trafficking ring run by corrupt travel agent Anthony Damon, who arranges for them to have access to children to abuse and videotapes them molesting their victims. On one of these trips, Massey and Jansen filmed themselves gang-raping a boy, and each kept a copy of the tape.

Massey married a single mother he met through a personal ad and became stepfather to her two sons, and soon began sexually abusing the older of the boys, Shawn. He manipulated the boy into silence by saying that his abuse was "the way fathers are supposed to love their sons", and that no one would understand if he told anyone. His wife, meanwhile, worshipped him for rescuing her from her abusive ex-husband, and so refused to see that there was anything wrong with their sexless marriage.

Jansen called Massey to treat his two adopted sons, and sexual abuse victims, Ernesto and Jose, whom he had picked up during a trip to Guatemala. Massey was outraged after seeing the bruises and sexual injuries the sadistic Jansen had inflicted upon the boys, and surgically castrated him before slitting his throat, making sure he suffered as much as possible.


Detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler of the NYPD's Special Victims Unit first encounter Massey while investigating the death of Jose, who had run away from Jansen and hid inside a bus, only to die of carbon monoxide poisoning. Massey denies knowing anything about Jansen's death, but inquires about the boys' well-being.

After the SVU team unravels Damon's trafficking ring and arrests him and Lynch, they find the tape the latter made of raping a boy, and note that the only thing visible about the second rapist is a tattoo on his forearm. As no one they arrested from the pedophile ring has such a tattoo, the detectives start looking into Jansen and Lynch's other associates, and find that Massey had treated Ernesto and Jose. They begin to suspect him after realizing that a dentist would have the anatomical knowledge and medical experience necessary to surgically remove Jansen's testicles.

Benson and Stabler question Massey's wife, who protests his innocence but admits that their marriage is lacking, with Massey paying more attention to Shawn than to her. Stabler talks with Shawn, who tells him about Massey's abuse.

The detectives then bring in Massey, who demands to know what is going on. Playing the "good cop", Stabler leads Massey to believe that he, too, is a pedophile, and that he believes that what Massey does to Shawn is an expression of love, as opposed to Jansen forcing boys to have sex with him. When Stabler says that Jansen got what he deserved, Massey cannot resist bragging about the "appropriateness" of Jansen's punishment. This reveals his guilt, as only the killer would know about Jansen being castrated. Stabler also discovers that Massey has the distinctive tattoo seen in the video.

Panicked, Massey says that Jansen ruined it for everyone and that he had to stop his abuse. Stabler retorts that he is going to stop Massey's abuse of Shawn and says he is under arrest. Massey claims that Shawn seduced him, and that what they do is not the same thing as what Jansen did to his boys. Stabler replies that it is in fact worse, as he abused his stepson and betrayed his family's love. Massey is then found guilty of and executed for murder and child sexual abuse.
