Scully and Mulder are called in by two secretive government agents and asked if they've ever had an X file with similarities to their most recent case. Two men were found dead in an alley but still have a residual electrostatic charge and it appears their throat and larynx were crushed, but from the inside. Mulder manages to get a fingerprint from each of the dead men and learns they both had ties to terrorist organizations. Using video firm a nearby ATM, they find that the two men had attacked Lauren Kyte a secretary at Defense Department contractor HTG Industrial Tecnologies. She's recently decided to leave her job after the death of her boss Howard Graves, who recently committed suicide. Lauren isn't sure how she got away from those men or how they were killed. It all leads Mulder to believe to believe that Lauren may have a guardian angel. Written by
