Scully and Mulder investigate the murder of someone who was burned alive in a funeral parlor crematorium. The autopsy reveals that he was missing several vital organs - an eye, a kidney - and Scully immediately suspects that the man was selling his organs, any of which would fetch a very high price. Working with a local Chinese-speaking detective, Glen Chao, Mulder gets a lead when they find pieces of hell money, fake currency that is used as a symbolic offering. It all leads them to a deadly game among newly arrived immigrants in need of real money. Written by
