CLICK. CLICK. CLICK. The REFLECTION of the CRIME SCENE

PICTURES REFLECT off of Will Graham’s glasses.

WILL GRAHAM (CONT’D)

I use the term Sounders because it refers to a small group of pigs.

That’s how he sees his victims.

Not as people, not as prey. Pigs.

Will turns back to the TRAINEES as he CLICKS again.

WILL GRAHAM (CONT’D)

Eleven months after the sixth victim there was a seventh.

Two days later, the eighth is killed in his workshop. Every tool on the pegboard where they hung was used against him. As with the previous murders, organs were removed.

WILL GRAHAM (CONT’D)

The removal of organs and abdominal mutilations means someone with anatomical or surgical knowhow.

There is a distinctive brutality.

Until recently, two years later.

Her severed arm was discovered.

Only because he wanted it to be.

WILL GRAHAM (CONT’D)

True to his established pattern, the Chesapeake Ripper has remained consistently theatrical.
