Lauren Sloan is a therapist and murderess who appeared during the fifth season of CSI: Miami.


In 1999, Lauren Sloan was arrested for shoplifting, and after this, she turned her life around and married Jeff Murdock. She also became a therapist, with one of her patients being Benjamin Rhodes. Their sessions later became an illicit affair, but knowing that their relationship was against her duties as a therapist, Lauren ended things with Rhodes.

Season Five[]

Internal Affairs[]

Rhodes refused to accept a breakup, as he was in love with Lauren. When Lauren found out that Rhodes made numerous calls to the psychiatric board, she decided to scare him away, as she faced losing her license due to her affair. She took Jeff's gun, which was loaded with blanks, and pointed it at Rhodes during a confrontation, but when Rhodes planned to tell the board and Jeff about their relationship, she shot Rhodes. The blank ended up in Rhodes's throat and caused him to bleed to death.

Lauren confessed everything to Jeff, while mentioning that a pair of her earrings were at the house where Rhodes was killed. This led to Jeff attempting to get the earrings, only to later kill Nick Townsend after hearing that he had stolen them.
