not with the usual signs of
struggle.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Thanks for calling Doc. We're
hoping she makes it.

By the way, for our records we
needed to name the woman and we
came up with "HOPE".

You can use that if you like.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
Thanks. We'll do that.
                                                            
The call ends. John turns to his partner.

Dr. thanks for your time. Have you
seen any improvement with her yet?
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
Nothing we can call improvement.
We are considering bringing her
out of the induced coma.

Only if we see a reasonable
increase in her vital signs.

I will certainly let you know when
that time comes.
                                                            
The Doctor pauses for a moment and says.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
Hey John, did you send her
clothing out for forensics?
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yes we have. Just a bit earlier I
got a call from forensics. They
couldn't find anything.

This only makes the job that much
more difficult.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
Well, if I can help in any way
please ask.

notices her nose is bleeding slightly. Drops of blood land
on the carpet before either one notices.

Sorry about that. Are you ok?

EXT. FBI CHAPEL HILL POLICE STATION - MORNING
                                                            
The FBI have established a profile of what they now believe
is a serial killer.

They gather all of the detectives from both Chapel Hill and
Clover Ridge in a room and describe what they all should be
looking for.
                                                            
                       NY LEAD FBI AGENT
Good morning all.
                                                            
                       LINO PEREZ
      (Pointing to a
       board)
Gentlemen, As you all know another
women was found in an L.A. wooded
area a few days ago.

No sense in jumping to conclusions
that these crimes might be
related.

The FBI will most likely send a
team over there to look things
over.


So lets stay with our situation.
We have 3 women found dead and one
in the hospital still hanging on
so pay close attention.

I have on this board a profile of
this possible serial killer.

I repeat, possible. As you well
know there are similarities in all
homicides but can also be
deceiving.

Apparently this individual seems
to be doing his or her work in and
around the Westchester County
area.

The killer is using a sedative
known as Midazolam which in strong
doses can be fatale.

You can't get this over the
counter or by
prescription.

            (MORE)

31.

                       LINO PEREZ (cont'd)
Therefore the killer could very
well be in the medical field or
know someone who can get it for
this individual.

We believe this individual
operates alone and does not leave
any clues. DNA or otherwise.

He or she is extremely careful but
does not seem to care how they
hide the body. As though they want
us to find it.

As you know there was a body
recently found just outside of Los
Angelos with similarities to our
situations here.

I wouldn't jump to any conclusions
yet that these are related.
However there is that possibility.


Now, with our investigation here
we need to start looking up
meaning check out any surveillance
cameras that might show something.


Lets group together again in the
next few days.
                                                            
Just as everyone is getting up the lead detective is handed
a note. "Autopsy reveled the sedative Midazolam found in the
woman from LA" He shares this the others.
                                                            
Everyone disburses.

Listen up. To put it simply we
strongly believe there is serial

We're not entirely certain but
it's looking like it.

The hard part is he or she is
doing their dirty work around the

We have what appears to be 2
murders in Westchester NY and 1
out in L.A.

We're not only going to ask about
other psychiatrists he might know
in the area.

I'm also interested to learn what
he thinks about these women that
are showing up across the states.

I mean does he feel they're
connected some how? He might have
a different angle on this through
his profession.

                       ROBERT
      (with an

I don't real know at this point. I
haven't studied or followed it
much.

What do you guys think. Serial
killer?
                                                            
                       JOHN
We have very little to go on. The
person responsible is covering
his/her tracks very well.

We just found out of another women
found in Texas kind of with the
same M.O. and is getting around
quickly.
                                                            
                       BILL
Robert we were hoping that you can
help in developing some sort of
pattern, motive for John and I.
                                                            
                       ROBERT
Is the FBI involved? I would
assume they would since this is
far reaching.
                                                            
                       BILL
Yes they are but John and I
decided to keep looking into our
local cases kind of on the QT.
                                                            
                       ROBERT
Well the FBI have Psychoanalyst
who by virtue of their training
develop patterns, etc. from FBI
data base case studies.

Having said that I will definitely
look into this the best that I
can. I would like to see this son
of bitch caught.

the fuck.

Anyway, that's the only way I or
anyone knew her.

Some of the girls talked about
their private lives on a surface
level nothing deep.

A couple of them joked about going
to therapy for reasons they didn't
want to get into which was fine
with me. Phil was one of them.
                                                            
                       HOLLIS
Anything more? Where she lived?
                                                            
                       MARILYN
Only that the Therapist must have
been a little bit of a drive away.
                                                            
                       HOLLIS
How do you know that?

She was always the first to get up
and take a shower and would say
"well you me I got to go.

I need to get into that horrific
traffic"
                                                            
                       HOLLIS
Any way of you finding out where
she might have lived, area,
something?
                                                            
                       MARILYN
I'll ask around at the aerobics
class.

Thanks Marilyn. You have been a
great help. Do you mind telling me
the name of the aerobics class so
we may contact them?

Its in Manhattan. Upper east side

Ladies and Gentlemen, as
information comes in its looking
more as this is a serial
rapist/killer on the lose.

He/she appears to be getting
around quick and without being
noticed. We have no intel on this
person, nothing!

I'm gonna go around the table here
and if you any thing, a theory, a
thought, idea just bring it.


Now, having said that, lets start

with you Angelo.
                                                            
                       ANGELO
It seems to me that this could be
more than one individual.

If these cases are in fact
connected getting around quickly
one would need some help driving,
if driving is involved.

Could be using public
transportation.
                                                            
                       WALLY
Thanks Angelo. Any food for
thought is what we're looking for.
Nikki, anything you want to ad.
                                                            
                       NIKKI
Well, If this is in fact more than
one I think we should be focusing
on the possibility that the so
called other person might be a
friend within the areas of the
crime.

It's a far reaching idea but it's
a thought.
                                                            
                       WALLY
Nikki, Nothing is far fetched in
our business.

Pete, got anything?
                                                            
                       PETE
I'm thinking these are not related
as one or two individuals doing
these crimes. Seems to me we have
copycats. And, I believe we have
an epidemic.

all.
                                                            
                       WALLY
Well people I believe this was
well worth the time.

I know all of you are working on
other cases, but see if you can
nurture, develop your ideas
further.

I believe what Pete is saying
about a copycat theory might be
very relevant. Alex has a
reasonable take as well.

So, we thought you might have some
theory on this person or persons
motive.

Some psychological angle,
approach, something.
                                                            
                       ROBERT
      (With a
       professional tone)
Since these cases are relatively
close in proximity I believe the
person or persons live outside of
NY.

The reason why I believe this is
just simple nature you don't shit
where you eat to put it
professionally.

And, This criminal or criminals
travel around to various states
thinking it will be harder to
track them.

I gotta tell you they are leaving
no evidence. I feel like a piece

good at this.

They certainly are aren't they.
                                                            
                       BILL
Robert, I mean Bobby, If you hear
anything at all please call us. We
need to catch these guys before
they strike again.
                                                            
                       ROBERT
I sure will. This hurts everyone
in one way or another. These are
bad people.

I would like to get my hands on
this group even though I risk
jail.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Alright Bobby We're gonna head
back to the station. Keep in
touch.
                                                            
Bobby walks the to the door and they all shake hands and
disburse.
                                                            
                       BILL
Bobby is real nice fellow. Seems
down to earth.
                                                            
                       JOHN
He sure does. Glad we stopped in
even though he didn't have much to
offer.
We need to get to the hospital to
meet Lino.
                                                            
                       BILL
      (with a serious

What do you think he meant by
"this group"?

                       JOHN
Good afternoon. This is Lino Perez
from the FBI headquarters in DC.
We like to see Anna.
                                                            
                       HEAD NURSE
You can go in but as usual
gentlemen please do not attempt to
converse with her. She's still
under.

I mean in the induced state.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Of course. We understand.
                                                            
They make there way to her room.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (Looking at Anna
       and back at Lino)
She looks quite peaceful. Almost
like if we touched her she would
wake up and acknowledge us.
                                                            
                       BILL
She does. Unfortunately we can't.
                                                            
                       LINO
Can we get the doctor in charge of
her here. We need to....
                                                            
Before Lino finishes the Dr. walks in.
                                                            
                       BILL
      (with surprise)
I was just going to see if you
were in the hospital.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
The nurse informed me you
gentlemen were here.

                       JOHN
Doc. Say hello to Lino Perez he's
from the DC FBI headquarters
leading the operation from up
here.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
Pleasure to meet you Lino. Well
Gentlemen, I was looking at her
latest workup and thought if she
continues the good progress it
might be as early as next week
that we could bring her out of the
coma.
                                                            
                       LINO
That would be great.

The FBI is about to divulge Anna's
first name to the public along
with the other victims of these
crimes which is believed to be of
serial in nature.

That means we need to take
precautions against the
possibility of someone learning
that she is still alive and a
threat to the serial killers
exposure.

Please understand we will need
your staffs help along with ours
to maintain and keep her location
a secret.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
We are a small facility. Not sure
how well we can insure the
security that's required. Not to
mention the cost.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Doctor, like Bill was saying we
will assist in whatever security
will be needed.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
      (looking confused)
Is there anyway you can find
another facility for her?
                                                            

61.

                       JOHN
We need her close to us as our
visits will increase once she is
able to speak.

There is of course the real
possibility that the hospital
staff talking outside of the
hospital could be detrimental to
her safety.

So, what we need to do is one day
is to report within the hospital
that she has been relocated to an
undisclosed location the previous
night.

You then need to find an area here
in the hospital where she can be
safely kept letting only a descret
small number of staff members know
what's going on.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
I will do whatever it takes to
keep her safe but I must tell you
I cannot be ultimately held
responsible nor my staff
responsible if something should
happen.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Of course Dr. Milner. I'll let you
know when this needs to happen.
We'll have a closed door meeting
to set everything in motion.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
Ok. I must get back to my tasks.
Thank you for stopping by.
                                                            
                       LINO
Thank you for all you've done with
Anna. We'll see our way out.

someone trying to finish what they

That's a shame. If you find out

and swerved abit.

She hit her noise on the side

Oh yea, she mentioned about that

Hi, I own a small boutique on 5th
avenue here in Manhattan the woman
in the photo I think might be
Bethany Walsch,

Well she came in and bought a few
things left a got into white
Porsche in front of my shop.

Couldn't see if it was a male or
female driver. She got in on her
own without hesitating. Nothing
suspicious looking.

She's been in here before that's
how I recognize her. I just
thought I would tell you not that
it has to do with anything.
                                                            
                       HOLLIS
Can you give me your name just
incase we need to contact you

anyway. This phone I'm calling you
on is not mine so please don't
call it. I won't answer it.
                                                            
                       HOLLIS
Let me ask you a question while I
have you. Can you pull up any
receipts that possibly would give
me some info on her? Did you
happen to see the license plate.

She always paid in cash. And I was
looking for the plate because
there wasn't anything odd.

I will. Bye.

First of all please call me
Randel. I got a call from a women
who has a boutique on 5th avenue
in Manhattan.

She said that Beth Walsch would
come into her shop every so often
and the last time she did this
woman saw Beth get into a white
Porsche.


Just thought You need to know
this. I know Lino occupies an
office at your station so you
could just pass that on.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Thanks for that info. Lino went
back to DC headquarters as not
much was happening in the way of
information coming in so they
asked him to go back there.

                       RANDEL
Ok, what I will do is write up
this information and send it out
to all parties involved. Just
incase.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Great. I'll look into this Porsche
thing. No license plate I assume?
                                                            
                       RANDEL
No. According to the boutique
owner she wasn't trying to look
for it as she didn't think
anything of it at the time.

Manhattan called him to say she
say Beth Walsch get into a White
Porsche before a while back.
Somewhere on 5th avenue.
                                                            
                       BILL
So far you make no mention of the
plate.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You guessed it. However, since you
like looking up license plates
maybe you could work it in reverse
starting with a white Porsche.
What do you think?

Be my pleasure sir! Remember we
did this once before and came up

He returns the polite gesture and goes on his heading north.

Just as important is that I'd like
to thank all of you as this reward
belongs to you as well.

Having said that just allow me to
take up some of your time to tell
all of you that we are an

schooling to get where we are
today, and as society dictates we
are allowed to reap those benefits
thru compensation.


Now, my message to all of you here
and those not within my voice to
clearly understand that money is
no everything.

It has it's rewards as we know.
But most rewarding part of what we
do is helping those poor
individuals that are asking for
help and can't afford it.

This is a personal sole searching
effort on your part whether to
help this person in need or not.

Some of you will choose the
monetary reward over the human
aspect.

This is your choice but know that
you could have saved a human being
from hurting him or herself by
simply offering some free time.
Yes you heard me "free time"


Well, I hope I made some sort of
an impression with in your sole
this evening.

Well John, there are a few
possibilities. One, this person
loves bears and belongs to some
kind of wildlife club.

Two, he just likes bears and put a
tattoo on himself or three;

He belongs to this growing party
type men who enjoy other men but
you need to be a big burly hairy
bearded person with the same
likes.

That's where the symbol comes in
"Bear Club 1".

                       JOHN
Thanks for coming in. I'm using
this conference room so you don't
get the feeling we're here to
interrogate you.

Relax we just need to ask you
something.
                                                            
                       BRENT
OK no problem I'm here to help.
But I can't imagine what it is.
                                                            
Bill joins in the meeting.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Brent, to cut to the chase the
other day when we met in town Bill
became interested in your car.
                                                            
                       BRENT
Yes you did I remember.
                                                            
                       JOHN
He came upon, well you explain it
from here Bill.

When I was on the passengers side
I noticed a red spot on the
carpet.

                       BILL (cont'd)

So I take it upon myself to take s
sample and have it analyzed.
                                                            
Brent interrupts
                                                            
                       BRENT
So that's why you were on the
passengers side longer than
expected.

From the corner of my eye I
couldn't see what was going on.
                                                            
                       BILL
Very little damage if any Brent.
The real story here is the sample
was of blood.

The blood is of Beth Walsch.
                                                            
                       BRENT
Is that the women that was found
dead a while back. I picked up a
women in the city by the name of
Beth but never putting her to a
last name.

I was just doing my friend Bobby a
favor in picking her up in city
and driving her out to his home.
                                                            
                       BILL
Do you mean Bobby Samnuels?
                                                            
                       BRENT
Yes but don't ever think he had
anything to do with this.

John do you remember you came to
see me and were joking about
giving me ticket?

By the way I already knew you
couldn't do that because you
needed to see the infraction
yourself.

Well, anyway I picked up a Beth in
the city and started out for
Bobby's house.

I was speeding a bit came upon a

deer in the road swerved to avoid
hitting it but unfortunately Beth
was the one who got hurt.

I asked her if she was OK. I had
know idea see dripped blood.


I dropped her off said goodbye to
both and went home.
                                                            
John pauses for a second.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Alright Brent we probably need to
ask you some other questions.
Understand you are not a suspect.
                                                            
                       BRENT
Whatever I can do Gentlemen.
                                                            
As Brent and John are walking to the door Bill is already on
the phone calling Bobby.
                                                            
                       ROBERT
This is Dr. Samuels.

       tone says)
I'm doin fine. What do I owe this
call to?
                                                            
                       BILL
Need to ask you if you a few
questions about a possible patient
of yours. Beth Walsch? Could this
be one of yours?
                                                            
                       ROBERT
I had a patient by the name of
Beth if you want to call her a

name was.

about to leave.
                                                            
                       JOHN
      (interrupts the
       call)
Bobby, can you come down to
station and talk with us? I don't
like doing this on the phone.
                                                            
                       ROBERT
Sure thing, I'll stop off around
4pm this afternoon?
                                                            
                       JOHN
See you then Bobby.
                                                            
Later that day.
                                                            
Bobby walks in and asks for det. Sommers. Bill greets him
and escorts him to the conference room. They exchange
pleasantries and begin to talk.
                                                            
                       BILL
We just need to clarify something
if that's ok with you.
                                                            
                       ROBERT
No problem.
                                                            
                       BILL
You mentioned on the phone you new
a Beth.

Did a Beth come to your home
office here in Westchester back in
April?
                                                            
                       ROBERT
      (with a long pause
       says)
She was supposed to but never
showed up.

I asked a buddy of mine to pick
her up in the city but he said she
never showed up.

I ask him what happened he said he
waited for her than left.

                       JOHN
Who is that buddy your talking
about?
                                                            
                       ROBERT
I can't tell you that.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Robert, right now everything is
pointing to you. You owe it to
yourself to tell us who so we can
do our job and get the right guy.
                                                            
                       ROBERT
Listen, he most likely has a
plausible explanation.
                                                            
                       BILL
Just to let you know we found
blood in your friends Porsche that
matched Beth Walsch.
                                                            
                       ROBERT
I have a few friends with white
Porsches.
                                                            
                       JOHN
If you're telling the truth than
there's nothing more at the
moment.

We definitely will need to ask
more questions as things develop.

Oh, we have a pretty good idea who
that friend is you're not
mentioning.
                                                            
                       ROBERT
Ok then do what you need to do.

We'll walk you out.

Hey Brent, I just came from the
police station and they said they
questioned you and found Beth's
blood in your car?
                                                            

92.

                       BRENT
This is Bullshit. I had know idea
that the women they found dead was
the same Beth we have been talking
about.


The blood they found was when she
hit her nose after I avoided
hitting that deer.

I told you and them about that.
Now they think I had something to
do with her murder?

Bobby you did tell them that you
took her into your house after I
dropped her off, right?
                                                            
                       ROBERT
Of course I did. They have the
blood evidence that's the problem.


It does mean you could have made
plans to see her after.
                                                            
                       BRENT
Bobby what the fuck are you
saying. You believe them?

No Brent of course not. I'll do
what I can Brent to get you out of
this. I promise.

Ok, I'm counting on you.

ever but still can't speak.

He said she can move her hands.

That's good news. If we're really
lucky she'll give us a bit of info

John walks over and with his badge showing Anna moves her
head a slight bit to see it and starts to become agitated.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
John, step aside for a moment let

Bill reaches for a piece of paper and pen. Gives it to John.
                                                            
John holds the paper and hands Anna the pen. She starts
writing but gets flustered. John asks her to rest a minute.

                       ANNA
She looks in Johns eyes and nods
yes.
                                                            
Then looks the other way to hide her tears.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
      (As he holds her
       hand)

                       JOHN
      (looking puzzeled)
I can't make this out. Is this a

                       JOHN
      (leans in)

again and writes THE RAPIST.
                                                            
They are all stunned.
                                                            
                       JOHN

They park outside of the property. Walk towards the house.
                                                            
They decide to walk to the back as there looks like a party
is going on. They stop at a window and notice a group of men
watching TV.


They can't believe what they are watching.

here while I see what's going on.
                                                            
John grabs one of the videos from Cory's hand. He tells
everyone to sit on the floor and calls in Back-up.
                                                            
Bill has his gun pointed at Robert and the others.
                                                            
John grabs the video out of Cory's hand and starts playing
it. It's not to long until Anna and Robert having rough sex
and right before John's eyes Robert starts beating her.

Next is Philomena were she meets her horrible end by Robert.

In the attendance is Anna next to John and Bill and Brent.
                                                            
                       JUDGE
Each one of you are the lowest
form of a human being and that's
ever walked this earth.

You have heard from the families
and the one sole survivor.

If it weren't for her you sick
demented things you would still be
doing your despicable deeds.

If I could I would sentence you
all to capital punishment.
Unfortunately we abolished it
years ago here in NY.

I have asked that you Aldo, Cory
and Stan be sent back to the state
of your crimes where they have the
death penalty but even they didn't
want you.

The best I can do is sentence each
one of you to life without the
possibility of parole.

Except for you Robert Samuels. I
give you 3 life sentence to run
consecutively and with out the
possibility of parole.
                                                            
The audience laughs and cheers in unison. Strangely the
judge allows it.

Anna cries silently.
                                                            

109.

                       JUDGE
      (lifts his gavel)
Officer's take these prisons.
Court is adjourned.
                                                            
On their way out Cory says to the other guys you never got
to see my video. I would have won that night.
                                                            
                       ROBERT
      (Looks back at
       Cory)
Your fucken nuts Cory
