In addition, different body parts are missing from each boy, and each boy was a runaway who made money through street hustling. After dismissing the notion of the unsub wanting the authorities to believe the storms caused the pre-death trauma, the BAU determine that the tornadoes in and of themselves are part of the reason for the unsub's murder spree. After more bodies with different missing limbs are found, the BAU begins to figure out exactly what the unsub is planning on doing with the taken body parts. They get a break when there is a witness to the abduction of another teen-aged boy, albeit one with a stable family life.

Travis DOB 1998?!
25 August 2020 | by housetarthSee all my reviews

How was Travis born in 1998?! So he's 13? He looks at least 22 in 2011. The actor was born in 1980. What the hell am I missing here. Was this a mistake like "Oaklahoma"
