Storyline

Scully and Mulder go to Cleveland to assist the local police in the investigation of a bizarre death. They've found the remains of a woman in her car but the body is in an advanced state of deterioration, even though she's only been missing for a short while. By the time Scully gets to the autopsy, there is no flesh left on the skeleton. Mulder sees similarities in this death and a series of deaths in another State where all of the victims had responded to a lonely hearts personals in their local newspaper. They now think the killer has moved on to Internet chat rooms to lure his victims. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The presentation of the character Virgil Incanto went through several permutations, initially conceived as a creepy Phantom-of-the-Opera-like recluse, and as a butcher who would be able to cut the fat from his victims, before the final fairly normal-looking version was decided upon. See more »

As if it weren't hard enough for a chubby girl to get a date already...
6 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now they have to be worried that their date is going to feast on their fat.

This is a great example of how man will say just about anything to get what they want. Show it to your daughters.

In this episode, only heavy girls need to be afraid, in the real world though, all girls need to be afraid.

Anyway, this is another non conspiracy episode. It doesn't add anything to the ongoing X-Files theme but can be viewed independently. Wouldn't want to watch this episode right before going to sleep.

So next time you're on a date and he's telling you everything you want to hear, be suspicious!
