Mulder and Scully are asked by Mulder's old partner Agent Jerry Lamana for help on a case. Benjamin Drake chairman of Eurisko, a major computer company, was electrocuted at the office. The dead man was a personal friend of the Attorney General and Jerry doesn't want to mess up on such a high profile case. Computer genius Brad Wilczek co-founded the company with Drake and had a falling out over the direction of the company. Mulder wonders is someone might have hacked into the Eurisko building's elaborate computer system to use it to electrocute Drake. He turns to his new contact, Deep Throat, to try and figure out what is going on. Written by

Scruffy minds like me like puzzles. We enjoy walking down unpredictable avenues of thought... turning new corners but as a general rule, scruffy minds don't commit murder.
