They are being raped by another man and suffocated to death specifically at the Hudson Street Hotel. The men are found naked in a fetal position in a place where they are sure to be found quickly the in their hotel room. They are also positioned in such a way that housecleaning would have cleaned up any evidence before finding the bodies first. The victims thus far are not gay indicating that any physical act was not consensual. When the next victim is found at another hotel, the BAU believe that this is a red herring, and that the unsub may be a guest or probably an employee at the Hudson Street Hotel.

Brilliant Episode Of A Brilliant Series
14 May 2009 | by Angel_Of_My_HeartSee all my reviews

I have watched this series from the start and have loved it from day one, when Mandy Patinkin left I thought that may spell the end of this fine program boy was I mistaken its gone from strength to strength and the episode Conflicted was one of the best i've seen so far Jackson Rathbone blew me away with his performance he was fantastic in this the whole multiple personality thing was brilliant, having seen him in Twilight before this it so didn't show how brilliant he is. This will continue to be one of my favorite series if they keep giving us episodes as good as this. Reids performance in this episode was outstanding as well and he continues to be my favorite character on the series.
