12:00 pm
this doesn't make any sense. how in the hell did he get so much access? hotch: yeah, thank you. winslow, arizona, p.d. statewide system security check reports no breaches. they were the last. if the replicator isn't hacking in, how is he learning details of these crimes. maybe it's a journalist. they're skilled at obtaining confidential information. but why not help out his career in the process? the media didn't know that adam rain was making human marionettes, but somehow the replicator did. he's been watching us for months. maybe we were the ly source he needed. that would require him to be in two places at the same time. i've assembled a pretty accurate timetable of the unsub's stalking and murder activities, and based on the estimated time of death regarding our amputated replication, the unsub wasn't stalking us during the investigation of the whitewood-turner crimes in miami
12:01 pm
yet, he was still back in d.c. in time to see me hit my game-winning home run against the secret service. baby girl, this the best you got? i'm blowing it up as much as i can. what about this? look at the reflection in blake glasses. it's grainy, but it looks like some creep taking pictures. you know, we've got all of this and the best we can tell is this guy has a blue baseball cap. i know and i'm sorry. i promise i will be home before you guys wake up. well, the sooner we get this guy, the sooner the security detail can go away. ok. well, we're trying. i love you. erin, what are you doing here so late? i had a meeting with the director. i thought we were going to brief him in the morning. you were. he canceled. you have no fresh leads. he wants the replicator classified inactive. all due respect, ma'am, but this guy's hardly inactive. he's planning his next move. and when he makes that move, you'll be there to stop him. how many times have you told me that sometimes the best thing to do is wait, each crime teaches you something new? the replicator is dormant.
12:02 pm
all you're doing is working yourselves to death and igring the cases that need your attention. erin, he's stalking this team. no one's gonna give it up. i know that. and neither will i. but the cases are piling up and they need to be cleared so the director no longer thinks that his best unit is dropping the ball. so, go home. start fresh tomorrow. rossi: i hate to admit it, but she's right. i'm sure there's some psychopath out there planning his next attack. all right, go get some rest. back in here by 8:00. will, change of plans. [music playing] hey. hey. hey, nikk nikki, come on. where are you going? i can't do this anymore. it's never just one drink. i'm tired of this. oh, come on. all right. fine. just give me a second to close up and we'll head home.
12:03 pm
you're not going anywhere. this conversation is over. let go of me! i'm not gonna lose you. who the hell are you? let her go, john. get off me. you got two choices-- you can leave or i can beat the hell out of you right now. ok. ok! you know what? you're not worth it. you want her so bad, you can have her. [spits] walk away, john. thank you. you all right? i'm fine. i just want to go home. you shouldn't have to put up with that. oh, he's not normally like this. he just... had too much to drink. it's nice to finally meet you, nicole. how do you know my name? what are you doing? stop it!
12:04 pm
i almost knocked you-- sam? penelope. what are you doing in my 'hood? 3-day seminar. i decided to skip the schmoozing over breakfast. yeah, you never did have much patience for small talk. do you need a hand? uh... uh, sam, this is kevin. we work together. kevin, this is sam. we...went on a couple of dates. it was more than a couple dates. nice to meet you. so how are the ukulele lessons going? ukulele lessons? two months strong? two months strong. you'll have to give me a concert sometime. barista: medium latte, light foam, extra soy. uh-huh. that's you. good memory. listen, we should catch up. uh-huh. we should. perfect. nice to meet you, kenneth. kevin. did you know that soy milk
12:05 pm
which mimics the functions of estrogen inside humans? i'm just saying he's gonna have moobs. what are moobs? man boobs. go ahead, garcia. yes, sir. ok. so, over the past couple of days, two woman have been found murdered with their tonguesemoved in st. paul, minnesota. the first is patricia morris. she was found at a local park by a couple of joggers. and then a few hours ago nicole francis, she was found in a parking lot of a local restaurant. both women died from multiple stab wounds. had they been reported missing? no. in fact, local p.d. were the ones who initially informed the families. the m.o. is specific. anything on vicap? nothing yet, but i'm still searching. well, he definitely wasn't trying to hide the bodies. they were left in very public places. either he want them found quickly or he's all about the act and not the clean-up. any witnesses? yeah, sort of. nicole was last seen at the restaurant with her boyfriend john butler. they had some sort of icky spat. then he's on the short list. no, he isn't. he actually has a solid alibi.
12:06 pm
he was drinking at the bar all night. right after he left, local p.d. picked him up for public intoxication and they're holding him, but it's just until he sobers up. ok, it takes a lot of strength to rip out someone's tongue. it's one of the strongest muscles in the body. the m.e. is still trying to determine whether it was done ante- or postmortem. according to chinese mythology, one of the most dreadful punishments in the 18 levels of hell involves having one's tongue ripped out. it's considered to be one of the most horrific forms of torture. it's also symbolic, used to punish liars and anti-regime activists. the very nature of the m.o. is overkill. we can't rule out a personal vendetta. these women may have had something on this unsub and he wanted to make sure that they didn't live to talk about it.
12:07 pm
laurel loves to play hard-to-get. but i knew at night she'd leave that one window open... just for me. it was her special invitation to come and play... [crying] our very own game... of hide anseek. she wanted me to find her. and once i did... [muffled cries]

every insurance policy has a number. but not every insurance company understands the life behind it. for those who've served and the families who supported them, we offer our best service in return. usaa. we know what it means to serve. get an insurance quote and see why 92% of our members plan to stay for life. ah, a classic case of who dunnit? luckily, jay chews trident to help clean and protect his teeth, so he can claim his innocence with a convincing grin.
12:11 pm
trident. cherish your teeth. i'm going first. no you're not, you went first last time. why are those lines on my floor? a distance contest. i already made it from this line.
12:12 pm
barbara grizzuti harrison once said, "all acts performed in the world begin in the imagination." the preliminary toxicology report suggests neither woman was drugged. no sign of a struggle or that he used restraints. both women suffered solid blows to the head. probably how he subdued them. neither victim showed signs of sexual assault. maybe he's impotent. or sadistic. the stabbing could be what's getting him off. i have looked into both of the victims. the only thing they have in common are the same zip code. they have different occupations, interests, hobbies. patricia was a pilates instructor, and nicole was a legal assistant. both were low risk. he could just be picking them at random. if his primary motive is to kill,
12:13 pm
but what te such a huge risk? both crime scenes have tons of foot traffic. someone could have interrupted him. oh, y. local p.d. just discovered two bodies. laurel tyson, 25, and her brother daryl, 28. they were both stabbed to death inside her house. attacking in the home hasn't been his m.o. up to now they've all been very public places. two attacks on 3 victims in one night. this is the first time he's killed a male. is this turning into a spree? garcia, were their tongues missing? uh, laurel's was. daryl's was still intact. if this is a spree, why is he taking time to collect souvenirs? garcia, expand your vicap search nationwide. the ritual of the tongue extraction seems to be what matters most toim. detective boseman. thanks for coming out. thanks for having us. i'm dr. reid. this is agent morgan. nice to meet you. according to neighbors, somebody noticed an open window early this morning and alerted authorities. nothing violates one's sense of security more than being attacked in their own home. why didn't the alarm trigger when the window was opened? that's a good question. maybe he knew what he was doing. excuse me. [cell phone rings]
12:14 pm
unfortunately, all have are daily coffee receipts and weekly thai orders. laurel didn't get out much. she worked from home as a telemarter, spent a lot of time surfing the web. her most recent sprge was a last-minute plane ticket for her brother. garcia, when did laurel have the alarm installed? two weeks ago. she lived here 3 years and didn't feel the urge to install an alarm until now. thanks, mama. mm-hmm. maybe she flew him out here because she was scared. having her brother around would make her feel more protected. and if laurel was the target, then daryl's presence would have come as a surprise to the unsub. making him a victim of circumstance. the question is, how did he learn about 3 separate women that lived 3 completely different lives? your report mentioned you found rust fragments in the victims' stomachs. have you been able to determine if they were from the knife? either that or from the other object. other object? the assailant used two weapons, one to grip and the knife to severe the tongue. something like pliers.
12:15 pm
she was the only one with this type of bruising. i'm still doing tissue samples. all 3 women had copious amounts of blood in both their lungs and their stomachs. they were still alive when their tongues were cut out. i'm really sorry about nicole. can you tell me what you remember from last night? nicole got a raise a few days ago. so i wanted to take her out to celebrate. we started drinking, me more than her. sometimespeople overdrink in an attempt to mask their pain. were you and nicole having relationship problems? we hadn't been on the same page for a while. she'd just gotten a great promotion and i was laid off a few months back. is that why the two of you decided to move in together last month?
12:16 pm
till the issue of money came up. was that how the argument started last night? she complained about how much i was drinking. she stormed out of the restaurant. hey, nikki. i followed her into the parking lot. nikki, come on. and the next thing i know, some guy is slamming me into the car. get off me! do you think you could describe him? did you see his face? i was drunk. i wasn't thinking straight. it's my fault. i never should have left her out there. you want her so bad,you can have her. i figured he was someone she knew. why would you think that? walk away. john. because he knew my name. [cell phone rings] go ahead, garcia. sir, i did premium spelunking on these 3 women
12:17 pm
i mean chat rooms, blog, twitter, pinterest, facebook, you name it. that could be how the unsub knew about john butler. patricia was on multiple dating sites. and laurel? oh, laurel. she had a blog that makes "50 shades of grey" read like a children's book. it sounds like that's how he knew these women. thanks, rcia. is that work-related or personal? hello! peter, i asked you a question. is that personal or work-related? aah! is everything all right? i'm sorry, what? are you coming to the staff potluck tomorrow? yeah, i'll be there. sure you're ok? fine. anything?
12:18 pm
their posts went up 5, 6 times an hour. "brian used his own toilet for the first time today." all right, cut her some slack. she's excited. her son is potty-trained. brian is her cocker spaniel. hmm. check this out. at 1:14, nicole posted a status update saying she's waiting for somebody to rescue her from a loveless relationship. i assume she's referring to her and john. on 1-8, patricia tweeted, quote, "saw one of the most beautiful oak trees "in the park. i wish i could just take a nap under it like i did when i was a little girl." end quote. on 2-18, laurel posted on her personal blog about how much she likes pain. she describes it as, "the best foreplay." then on 2-21, again laurel posts, talking about a fantasy where someone climbs throughhe window and ravishes her with bondage. that's exactly how the unsub entered her house-- through the living room window. laurel was the only one with ligature marks. he knew she was into s&m.
12:19 pm
from the argument she was having with her boyfriend. he was the one that whisked her away. and the first victim, patricia, was found in a local park under a tree. so these women unknowingly described their own murders. [whistle blows] this guy targeted these women through their online activity? in the unsub's mind, their posts created a connection to him, which led to the initial stalking. that tells us he's most likely socially awkward.
12:20 pm
it's likely these women n't know what the unsub looks like, making it possible for him to interact with them without revealing his true identity. what his victims considered pure fantasy, the unsub intereted as literal and open invitation. that compulsion is specific to his psychopathology. if he's getting these readings on the web, his next inspiration coulcome from anywhere. kayla ignored me, pretended like i wasn't even there. time after time she'd walk by me.. never acknowledging my presence. did she even know i existed? she was going to learn tonight. no matter what,
12:21 pm

12:26 pm
his ritual remained the same, even though his m.o. changed from stabbing to strangulation. we'll have garcia check her internet history. well, why didn't he kill her the same way he killed the others? he must have been inspired by a new fantasy. we're ready to deliver the prile. we're looking for fit, aggressive caucasian male in his mid- to late 30s. he's practicing what's called vicarious fantasy assimilation. this refers to the cathartic release that comes when he turns someone else's thoughts or fantasies into reality. he trolls the internet and is selecting women with a strong online presence and who frequently post their fantasies with descriptive detail. there are two levels to his m.o., the first being the enjoyment he gets from taking one of his victim's fantasies and turning it into a nightmare. once he establishes his dominance by subverting that fantasy, then he moves on to step two, which is removing the tongue. his m.o. is polymorphic. it's taken on different forms.
12:27 pm
oh, i am so sorry. it's ok. it's likely that there are other women he's already targeted, so be vigilant if there are any reports of suspicious behavior. thank you. tv: this is alicia danner reporting live to you from outside of the 13th street apartment building, where the body of a local college student has just been identified as kayla jefferson. police are also releasing the names and photos of the other 4 victims no, no, no. who were brutally murdered during the recent strain of attacks. the fbi is asking anyone with information about this case to contact the taskforce hotline shown on your screen. patricia, nicole, laurel--

12:29 pm
spent 4 years with the guy, and i never once rembered how he took his coffee. you lost me at ricky d. i thought you said you guys just went on a couple dates. that's what this is about, that i know what sam puts in his coffee? might i remind you that whose coffee order i memorize is no longer any of your business. i--i just thought-- [cell phone rings] you and i will finish ts later. yeah. so kayla was not at all into modern technology. i mean, she dn't even own a computer, so that means there's no facebook, no twitter, no blogs, no nothing. she never even activated her college email account. well, if she doesn't fit his pattern, how do you know about here? good question, chocolate thunder. i did a search on kayla's name and it turns out she had a scary admirer. what do you mean? i mean that a 16-year-old boy named tyler rogers dedicated a blog to her. he had a lot of interesting things to say on it. he lived in the same apartment building as kayla. lived? yeah. he was institutionalized early january
12:30 pm
that can't be r guy. he's been locked up for months. but we should still talk to him. he might be able to give us something. let's get reid on it. thanks, garcia. "my fingers tightened around her throat. i could feel her heartbeat pulsing under my fingertips." when did you write this? sunday, december 15, 2012, 4:14 p.m. did kayla do something to upset you? she ignored me. again. and that made you want to kill her? [laughs] you're funny. your move. tyler, kayla is dead. someone took one of the stories you wrote and made it real. was there a lot of blood? your blog went into great detail about how you wanted to kill her.
