While on a book tour in Cleveland, Rossi learns from Zoe Hawkes, a keen criminology student, that there has been a spike in homicides in the city, she thinks that it is the work of one serial killer. Rossi thinks nothing of it since, on the surface, the homicides have nothing in common - that is until Zoe herself is killed while searching for clues. The BAU quickly realizes the connection: the M.O. of each case is a replica of more famous serial killer, with the perpetrator being a student of serial killers. Beyond the BAU needing to find the unsub before he kills again, Rossi has to reconcile his own feelings that he was somewhat responsible for Zoe's murder. Written by Huggo

The team refers to the "Butcher of Kingsbury Run" as a Cleveland serial killer who found his victims in gay bars and shot them in a local park. This is possibly a veiled reference to Jeffrey Dahmer. However, although Dahmer found his victims in gay bars, he never shot them in a park. The real Mad Butcher of Kingsbury Run, also known as The Cleveland Torso Killer, was active from 1935 to 1938, though estimates vary putting him as possibly active from the 1920s through 1950. He found his victims in the shanty-towns of Cleveland during the Great Depression and killed them by decapitating and often dismembering them. To date only 2 of his victims have been positively identified, a third tentatively identified and one has ever been charged for the crimes. The official body count for the Torso Killer stands at 12, though it's possible he killed upwards of 40 people. See more »

Sheila Hawkes: Is he going to prison?
