#LisaIrwin : Video #SkyMetalwala - Inspired By ' Law And Order ' ?

What does an episode of “Law and Order: SVU” have to do with the disappearance of 2-year-old Sky Metalwala? Maybe nothing, but investigators think the premise of a recent episode seems too “on the money” to discount as a lead, according to KIRO TV.

How’s this for uncanny: In the episode, a young mother leaves her son in a car when she ducks into a convenience store for diapers. When she comes back, he’s gone.

But there’s a twist. On “Law and Order,” the child was already dead, and the missing-person report was a twisted ploy by two parents mired in a difficult divorce.

The show’s plot was “strikingly similar in nature” to the real-life case, Bellevue Police Maj. Mike Johnson told The Associated Press.

In the Metalwala case, there’s also a difficult divorce, a child reportedly left in a car and a frantic search for the toddler.

The “Law and Order” episode aired last weekend, and now police want to know if Metalwala’s mother saw the show.

Here’s the episode, courtesy of Hulu. What do you think – coincidence or credible lead?
