Scully and Mulder investigate the death of a newborn child found in a shallow grave on the outskirts of a small town. Mulder loves the locale and thinks it's small-town America at its best. It even has a sheriff by the name of Andy Taylor. Sheriff Taylor is highly reluctant to investigate the family nearest where the baby was found however. He tells the agents that the three brothers who live there are all simple, the product of generations if inbreeding in the Peacock family. When the Sheriff is killed, all evidence points to the Peacocks and the FBI agents are shocked at what they find in the house. Written by
