Scully and Mulder investigate the death of a soldier working at a Haitian refugee camp. He drove his car into a tree and his death has been ruled a suicide but the man's wife simply doesn't believe he would have done that. Their investigation unearths rumors that the camp commander, Colonel Wharton, may be systematically abusing some of the detainees. There are also rumors of voodoo and curses but neither agent is prepared when someone completely unexpected suddenly appears. They get help from a young lad in the camp, Chester Bonaparte, but there are secrets in the camp that they may never solve. Mr. X warns Mulder that the military may be behind it all. Written by

The first scene with the agents and Mrs McAlpin has her saying "Jake used to tells these jokes..."
Thereafter the name "Jack" is used consistently by all. See more
Think he's telling the truth?
Until I can figure out why he'd lie, yeah.
