Three young female college students have gone missing from Fredericksburg, Virginia over the span of six weeks, each abducted from a public place. The dead body of the first abductee has just been found at the Chancellorsville civil war battle field. Her mutilated body was covered with cigarette burn marks. This case is reminiscent of a still open case from 1980 where five dead women were also found in Chancellorsville, with the victims having the same burn markings on their body. The difference is that the earlier victims were prostitutes and runaways. The BAU speak to two people associated with the case in 1980: John Caulfield, the Fredericksburg sheriff working the case, and Karen Foley, a possible victim of the 1980 unsub who managed to escape. Through information given - or not given as the case may be with Foley - Caulfield and the BAU believe the 1980 unsub to be a man by the name of Robert Wilkinson, who died shortly after the original killings stopped.

The song in the opening scene was "Where the Devil Don't Stay" by Drive-By Truckers. The unsub played "Honky Tonk Women" by the Rolling Stones, "Skin and Bones" by JET played during the second abduction, and "Decoration Day" by Drive-By Truckers was the song at the end. See more »
As Hotchner, Reid, and Jareau are driving toward what is supposed to be the Chancellorsville Battlefield Park in Virginia, they round a curve and face a steep hill covered with scrub vegetation. There is no hill or similar terrain like that in the vicinity of the Chancellorsville battlefield, and the scrub vegetation on the hill is characteristic of southern California, not central Virginia.

Putting the ridiculous plot aside, CM's really needs to improve how they portray parts of Virginia. I live on the cusp of NOVA and it's rather ridiculous how they portray their locations, like Stafford county etc. To date the worst portrayal I've seen is this episode. I LIVE in Fredericksburg and I'm am almost offended at how the writers created this episode. They depict this area chalk full of barns, county folk, and people with thick southern accents. It's laughable how they view people from this area. I know that their budget may not be big enough to do justice to every location they are supposed to be depicting. Though this does not mean that they have to make it so far-fetched. No wonder I stopped being a fan a while ago.
