A year and a half after the hurricane, a fourth dead body is found, killed using the same MO, which includes evisceration. Garcia locates a fifth potential victim in Galveston, Texas, that case which was not originally connected to the New Orleans killings. The unsub has been in direct contact with the lead investigator of the case, Lt. William LaMontagne, Jr. of the NOPD, by letter detailing the murder and mentioning that he is continuing what he started pre-Katrina. William LaMontagne, Sr., the previous lead investigator before he died in Katrina, also received such letters with the earlier murders. Most records of the first three murders were destroyed in the hurricane, so the BAU have only the latest murders from which to work.

Goofs

Reid says that Jack the Ripper studied medicine. It is a common urban legend that Jack the Ripper might have been a doctor or studied medicine, but those familiar with the case, both in 1888 and now, don't believe that he had any medical knowledge at all. Dr. Thomas Bond, considered to be the first criminal profiler and a police surgeon for Scotland Yard during the Ripper case. He said, "In each case the mutilation was inflicted by a person who had no scientific nor anatomical knowledge. In my opinion he does not even possess the technical knowledge of a butcher or horse slaughterer or any person accustomed to cut up dead animals." The official FBI profile agrees. See more »

Great Show

I loved this episode. It had a bit of everything....Reid's issues with his ongoing drug problem, the start of a romance for JJ, Jack the Ripper like killer, facts about Katrina that were dealt with very well, and great music. I thought the way they dealt with the Katrina aftermath were well done....the loss of records, relocation of people, people who had to be buried unknown.....this all happened. Also, there have not been that many women serial killers portrayed, and I thought that the actress did a very credible job. JJ and Will tip toe around each other for a good part of the episode, then at the end she issues him a challenge to call her.
