Mulder and Scully are in Minneapolis on the trail of a serial killer who likes to collect trophies from his victims. The killer is Donald Addie Pfaster, who goes by Donnie. He likes young women, especially blonds and he keeps a lock of their hair or their finger nails as trophies. He's also taken to digging up graves to add to his collection. Scully is having a very hard time dealing with the facts of the case and isn't functioning very well. She has a lot more on her plate however when Donnie sees her and decides to make her his next victim. Written by

You okay, Scully?
Yeah. I've read about cases of desecrating the dead before but this is the first time I've seen it.
Nothing can prepare you for it; it's almost unimaginable.
Why do they do it?
Well, some people collect salt and pepper shakers, fetishists collect dead things - fingernails and hair. No one quite knows why, though I've never really understood salt and pepper shakers myself.
