- Well, I've never seen

anything like that.

- Yeah.

- Something tore him up.

- Oh!

- Yeah.

-What's your prognosis, John?

-Well, he's dead for sure.

-Somebody's been

killed downtown

they said it was Jeb jolly.

-The mechanic?


- that's terrible.

-I mean, you guys are

the ones that are worried

about going out of business.

That's two bodies in a week,

that's money in the bank.

-Don't even joke

like that, John.

You okay here?

-Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

-It stinks really bad.

- She.

-She stinks really bad.

-She does smell for a woman.

Wish someone

had found her sooner.


Turn your head.

Oh, Ron's getting lazier.

He didn't even clean her.

He just declared natural causes

and shipped her over.

Other leg.

Aneurysm hooks.

How's school?

- I mean, you know,

aunt Margaret it's

it's the first week,

nothing much really happens.

-Make any new friends?

- It's funny, actually.

All those kids

that I've gone to school with

since kindergarten..

...they all left,

so...They're all new kids

and they all wanted

to be friends with me.

And it was pretty sweet.

Who are you?

My name is John.

- And welcome back

to Clayton's wxpc

it's just about

the top of the hour.

Some startling new

developments on a story

we've been following

for the last 48 hours.

The death of a Clayton man,

Jeb jolly, aged 53

is now under

police investigation.

The local mechanics body

was found yesterday

by one woman who likened

the violent scene

to quote,

"a bizarre animal attack."

Clayton county

police department

have declined to comment,

citing the need

for an official

coroner's report.

Jolly's family

asking only for our prayers.

-Hey, principal Layton

wants to see you.

-Mrs. cleaver,

take a seat please.

John, adolescence

can be a difficult time.

It's normal to be

interested in the world

and all of its problems.

Normal to be drawn

to death and murder.

But unfortunately you can go

too far down that road.

Too far away from..

Well, normal thoughts.

-What do you say, John?

-I'm interested in

how many times you felt

it was necessary

to say the word "normal."

- It's not like there's a whole

lot to say about Einstein.

I mean, he discovered

e equals mc square

and nuclear bombs but that's it.

I'm lucky I got

half a page at all.

-And you missed

two points for length

you missed another two

for spelling.

I mean, you managed

to spell Einstein

a different way every time.

-That's creativity.

-No, that's remarkable.

That's amazing.

-Hoo! Say, you guys, uh

you guys catch that smell?

Smells of something dead.

Something rotting.


-So, what psycho

did you write about?

-Dennis rader,

uh, the, uh, btk killer.

That's how he signed all of his

letters to the media

as "bind, torture, kill."

-How many people did he kill?

-Maybe 10, they're not,

not sure but could be more.

- Only 10?

The guy you wrote

about last year

was way better at it.

- Jeffrey dahmer.

He was a cannibal and he kept

severed heads in his freezer.

- I remember your pictures now.

They gave me nightmares.

-Nightmares are nothin' man.

Those pictures gave me

a therapist.

-Oh, what up?

That black cloud

above ya's growing.

-I broke one of my rules.

-Stalking anybody?


-What else?

-Have you heard about

the MacDonald triad?

-Three traits shared by 95

percent of all serial killers

bedwetting, pyromania,

animal cruelty.

You do admit I have all three.

-What really gets me is..

...you know, a -- animal cruelty

predicts violent behavior..

...but until I read that

i -- I didn't think

it was wrong...You know.
