The BAU travels to the southeastern US where two similar murders of two very different victims - beyond both being involved with extreme religions - have happened 100 miles apart in the matter of days. Both victims were killed by being chiseled over the head, were in a submissive position, had urban wildlife hair residue in their system, and had wood residue in their back teeth (signifying that they were biting on a stick). And at each crime scene, there was an infestation of maggots inconsistent both with the location and the amount of decomposition, meaning that the unsub brought the maggots to the kill sites. When a third victim is discovered upon the BAU's arrival, they further learn from witnesses that the unsub is calling his victims by a name other than their own, and that he is being quite open about his activities. The BAU notices that many of the murders are reminiscent of the serial killings of Russell Smith, who killed eight prostitutes in the area over a twenty year ...
Did You Know?
The boy who Willie was going to kill couldn't have been one of the eight because Russell died before the boy was even born. It is clearly explained, however, that the killer chooses Aidan because he was born immediately after one of the the eight surrogates died. The killer is concerned that the dead man was reincarnated as Aidan, so he (the killer) intends to kill Aidan just in case. See more
