[giggles] sir, i think there's a serial killer here. well, have the police issued a statement to corroborate that? i filed an inquiry downtown. um, nobody's called me back. but, uh, i know that the coroner's office hasn't been as busy since, like, the butcher of kingsbury run in the 1930s. well, what kind of homicides are we talking about here? ok, um...a man was shot in a park, a prostitute was found with her throat slashed, a couple was found shot in their car, a woman was killed in a burglary. do younow what 3 things profilers look at to link serial cmes? victimology, modus operandi, and signature. good. so were the victims similar? no. was the m.o. consistent? no. was the signature consistent? not that i know of. then there's no obvious reason

[chuckling] oh, and this is him wearing the customized leather jacket auntie penelope got him.

[gasping] oh, no! no! where did you find her? she was in a house in east cleveland. we thinkhe may have been visiting a crime scene. god... i told her to stop doing that. i told her that was too dangerous. where--where is she now? she's at the coroner's office, and i can take you to see her when you're ready. ok. now.
6:13 pm
mrs. hawkes,ould you mind if i stayed behind to look in her room? [takes deep breath, exhales] she was so excited to meet you. you're like a... a hero to her. mrs. hawkes. let me take you downtown now. come o
6:14 pm
the crimes are within a 7-mile radius. well, that's something. yeah, but the neighborhoods are all completely different. they range from poor to rich, industrial to residential. the physical locations are dissimilar, but the operating zone's well-defined. ok. i'm in. i see you. in your web browser for search history. check out her home page. all right, so the first thing she looks at when she opens her computer is a crime column. morgan: probably to stay current on her studies. can you see what she worked on last? voila. these are the most recently opened documents she created. reid: looks like she was compiling empirical data about homicide trends in cleveland. do you think she knew the killer?
6:15 pm
hotch: well, dave, she's a criminology student. she's been taught to analyze statistics and apply theo, not investigate killers. let's talk about what we know. all right. victim one-- travis bartlett was last seen at a gay bar. he was shot at night in a park victim 2, lily nicks, a 34-year-old prostitute, her throat was slashed. victims 3 and 4, ju appleby and troy wertsler, were shot in their car at a parking lot outside of a movie theater. and victim 5 was a 28-year-old single woman, kayla james, killed in her home. she was bound, suffocated with a bag over her head, evidence of rape. prentiss: and then the sixth victim was zoe. victimogy, weapons used, and c.o.d. are all different. it's hard to imagine it's ev the same unsub. it can't be a coincence that zoe goes to kayla james' house and gets murdered. all right, let's say it is the same killer. does anybody see a pattern? well, maybe. ok, the first crime, he shoots the victim. the second crime, he rapes a wan and slashes her throat.
6:16 pm
and the third crime, he escalates to killing two people, and the fourth, he escalates even more by raping a woman, binding her, and suffocating her. so if it is the same unsub, you could argue that there's a progression of violence with every kill. it could be an anger excitation offender getting more daring with each crime. i think i got something here. look at this. the slashes in the prostitute's throat-- they're all shallow unsure cuts. the kayla james crime scene-- telephone cord, rope, and duct tape were used. it's like he couldn't decide how to bind her. so without a gun, he's sloppy, inexperienced. the young couple shot in the car... that crime scene remind you of anything? yeah, they were shot with a .44 bulldog, just like the son of sam used on his victims, which were also young couples in parked cars. it might be nothing, but you're right, there is a parallel there. with the second victim, it's hard not to think of jack the ripper.
6:17 pm
kayla james was bound, tortur, raped, with a plastic bag over her head like btk. [gasping] what about victim number one? garcia, what neighborhood was he found in? at a park in the kingsbury run area. zoe reminded me last night that cleveland's most famous serial kler was the butcher of kingsbury run. he found his victims in gay bars, shot them, and dumped their body there. travis bartlett was last seen at a gay bar, and his body was found in kingsbury park. so these are copycats of famous serial killers? he's a serial killer studying serial killers.
6:18 pm
6:19 pm
i think we should've taken a left at the river. tarzan know where tarzan go! tarzan does not know where tarzan go. hey, excuse me, do you know where the waterfall is? waterfall? no, me tarzan, king of jungle. why don't you want to just ask somebody? if you're a couple, you fight over directions. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico.
6:20 pm
ohhhhhh! do you have to do that right in my ear? what happened? how did you make this? what is this? how did you get up there? he did what? how did it go? what? how in the? what did you do? honey, how did that happen? wake up! what? what? how? what? asking the right questions. that's caring. and that's why whirlpool made their cabrio washer with settings that simply ask "what" and "how" to get the perfect wash. every day, care. whirlpool some of my competitors plan to reduce the use of antibiotics over the ne few years. but what are you having for dinner tonight? try perdue simply smart and harvestland . two trusted perdue brands of chicken raised with

6:23 pm
now with lightweight spf 30. hey, dave. guys. we're in that room. coffee's brewing. we'll get started on the evidence boards. detective brady's r point. i'll let you all introduce yourselves. jj. can you help me out with something? sure. this has to be confidential. hotch: i know it may seem farfetched, but copycat killers are not entirely uncommon. this one happens to be copying several different killers. but if he's trying to be the butcher of kingsbury run, why didn't he cut up and mutilate the victims like the real guy? that was 7 weeks ago. he was just getting started. beginning killers are often frightened of the crime itself. they're morinterested in getting it over with as quickly as possible and fleeing the scene. he was just using the butcher's ruse as a way to lure the victim to be alone with her. and by the time he killed kayla james 3 days ago, he'd progressed. he came very close to copying all of the btk's m.o. he's reading, learning, borrowing from others because he doesn't know who he is yet.
6:24 pm
maybe even a student. someone probably enrolled in criminologylasses. our technical analyst is going through names of local students right now. up to this point, changing his m.o. has prevented investigators from linking the crimes. that's why we need to work quickly. you're sure about this? it's not a coincidence that all of these random, violent murders in a localized area are copycats of serial killers. it's as if all the worst serial killers have converged on cleveland. every time he plans to kill, the muer weapon, the m.o., and the victimology will all change. detective, will you let your team know
6:25 pm
sure. i gotta go. hotch. i'm gonna ep out for this one, clear my head. ok. garcia found 3 male students enrolled in crimology classes with felony records. good. we'll interview them. don't think we need to. one of them is studying abroad, the other 2 are back in jail on other charges. tell garcia to check enrollment in online and correspondence courses, see if we have any luck with those parameters. you guys handle the profile? yeah. everything ok? everything's fine. we have 6 homicides in a 7-mile radius in east cleveland. now, this small zone indicates that's he's a geographically stable offender. this type of offender is characterized as young, socially immatur of average intelligence, with psychopathic personality traits. morgan: ey also usually live alone and have an antisocial nature. a serial killer's first murder is very telling. this unsub's first murder, he chose the m.o. of cleveland's own butcher of kingsbury run.
6:26 pm
as other famous serial killers, but he is a local legend. and because he picked the butcher to be first, we believe he's a native of cleveland and probably grew up hearing stories of the butcher. this is someone who is obsessed with serial killers. his computer will be filled with research on them. he'll have abundant images of murderers on his computer and possibly even snuff films. he uses these like pornography. the provide some sort of sexual release. i think he went back to relive his crime. when zoe showed up, she became a victim of opportunity. it's e same theory we arrived at on the plane. he strangled her with her own scarf. he didn't plan it. i think she surprised him. i told her not to stop until she found the answers she was looking for.
6:27 pm
her mom said it's something that she does all the time. she obably would have gone anyway. but it's because of what i said that she was encouraged to go there last night. dave, what are you doing? she came to me and i dismissed her. try not to personalize it. i was the last one she talked to before s was murdered. how is this not personal, aaron? ok. it's personal. that doesn't change how we go about finding her killer. we know that violent criminals develop a signature over a series of crimes. if he's young, he probably hasn't even figured out what his is yet. find the signature, we can link the crimes. herobably monitoring the news, seeing if the police have connected them yet. we can use that. we can utilize the media.
6:28 pm
i knew homicides were up, but nobody said anything about a serial killer. why do i get a visit from the b.a.u.? you're paula mcconnell, cleveland's number one source in crime news. you're detailed, you have a following. he's reading you. we need you to write that the police have found his signature. you can help us by explaining what his signature is in your article. it's a killer's personal stamp, his distinctive touch that he leaves at the scene of every crime. well, i've been doing this for 18 years. and i know what a signature is, honey. we just really need you to be detailed about this. we're speaking directly to him. through my column. he's doing something, a behavioral impulse he feels compelled to do but a need-driven act to get a sexual release that's specific to his psyche. this repetitive behavior at each crime scene will lead us to him. [cell phone rings] let me take a stab at it.
6:29 pm
uh, they just found another body. brady: they're bringing him up right now. teenagers found him a little over an hour ago. it's petechiae in the whites of his eyes. judging from the bruising, he was probably strangled with a wire. is this our guy? it's gotta be. a jogger doesn't get garroted every day. whatever signature he left was probably washed away in the water. well, who's he mimicking now? bike path rapist altemio sanchez comes to mind. he trolled bike paths near buffalogarroting his victims. it looks like he copied everything except r the rape. strangulation's a repetition of his last murder of zoe. first time he's repeated himself. zoe's murder was spontaneous, though. he didn't plan it. he acted on instinct and did what came naturally to him. maybe what came naturally felt good to him and he wanted to feel it again. if he's starting to repeat a pattern,
