But why only two bodies? The case doesn’t make sense, and more questions are unanswered. Are the crimes related in any way? Could it be the work of a single serial killer doing a calculated crime, or might they be looking into the works of three separate murderers?

Now that they don’t have reliable information to make the killer’s profile, it’s up to the ground team to save more people from being brutally murdered. Another teen disappears as the team struggles to digest the information. Can they get to him before he ends up dead like the rest?
