Storyline

In Baltimore, Maryland, retired couple William and Helen DeMarco are found murdered in their home, a young white male was seen fleeing from the scene of the crime. In reviewing the crime scene, the BAU see signs of extreme torture in the killings. They also know that there was a third victim. Hidden throughout the neighborhood, they later find the dismembered body parts of that third victim, Freddy Condore, a low level mobster and nephew of the deceased. The case becomes a turf war in the FBI between Organized Crime and the BAU, who decide to continue to investigate regardless. They believe the killer is a sadist who has killed upward of one hundred men. In going through Condore's history, the team quickly find the name Jimmy Baker, a self-professed rehabilitated ex-con whose mug shot looks remarkably similar to that of the suspect fleeing the murder scene, but whose background raises some red flags amongst the team.

A Brutal And Riveting Episode Of An Incredibly-Sick Killer
6 January 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This is a particularly gruesome, sordid story of an extreme psychopath who has killed perhaps as many as 100 people over the years, not just killing them but torturing many in the process. The bloody and sadistic scenes of past crimes are so bad even some of the BAU can barely look at the photos.

Now, after the last killing, the murderer has an undercover cop - a good guy - in his hold and is torturing him for information. Can the BAU, and other law enforcement officials find this beast before the undercover policeman is killed?

To say this an intense story is an understatement. It is an outstanding episode that has you on the edge of your seat squirming all the way.
