Iraq War veteran Sgt. William Hightower goes to extreme measures to get authorities to investigate the disappearance of several people in Detroit, Michigan, one of those people being his sister Lee. The reason why the Detroit Police Department did not originally investigate is because those missing are exclusively people who live on the streets, specifically those that call the streets of the Cass Corridor home. Despite Hightower's action potentially landing him in jail, he gets his wish in that the BAU are brought in to investigate. The BAU's investigation brings them into Canada. Although they are there on the invitation of the RCMP, the BAU face the obvious problem of jurisdiction. When they get to the site and person they believe the unsub, they are initially dumbfounded due to the unsub's physical state. But he may know more than at first glance, which they will have to get out of him before the latest missing person, a young woman named Kelly, is found dead. This case is ... Written by
Much of the storyline mirrors a real life case, where several dozen street people, almost exclusively prostitutes, living in Vancouver, British Columbia, went missing. Their bodily remains were eventually found on a pig farm in the city's suburbs. See more »
Garcia is looking on the computer for locations on the Canadian side of the Detroit River. She refers to the "Blue Water Bridge" which is actually on the St. Clair River between Port Huron, Michigan and Sarnia, Ontario.

Am a Law & Order fan. had this on while doing paperwork. Did not know it was going to rip-off Hannibal with the pig farm thing and be as foul as it was. Morally offensive. But, I was 42 minutes in by the time I found out how disgusting it was. Then, at the end of the show, I realized it would be yet ANOTHER hour before I got to the end of it. The representation of the Canadian police was disrespectful as well. I would not watch this series again or recommend it to others unless they were Horror movie fans, which I am definitely not. The degree of violence was gratuitous and the torture aspect was beneath that of a network show.
