Gregory Yates, M.D. was a psychopathic and prolific serial killer, rapist, and stalker.

A medical doctor by profession, his victims had fittingly consisted mostly of nurses. Significantly to the series, he was also responsible for the murder of Nadia Decotis, greatly traumatizing Detective Erin Lindsay, the latter of whom he prominently stalked for a year in prison.

Chicago P.D. Summary Edit

After Yates escapes from a New York prison, Lindsay and the team learn that he is on the road towards Chicago. The SVU unit of the NYPD informs them that Yates has gathered information on Lindsay and Platt writes to a triple murder of Yates, as Lieutenant Olivia Benson and Detective Odafin "Fin" Tuotola arrive in Chicago to assist with the manhunt.

In a lengthy stand-off, with Yates repeatedly taunting Lindsay over many of her personal matters—Nadia among them—he lunges for her with a pry bar in hand. This ultimately proves his undoing, as Lindsay shoots and kill him in self-defense. She breaks down thereafter and is later consoled by Benson and Voight, with the former sharing a drink with her at Molly's.

Trivia Edit

  • Yates was closely based on real-life serial killer Ted Bundy.
