The Alphabet Killer

Synopsis: In Rochester, a pre-teen girl is abducted, raped, and murdered. Detective Megan Paige investigates: she works long hours obsessively, and soon she's seeing visions of the dead girl. The FBI profiles the killer as a spontaneous drifter, lucky not to get caught; Megan thinks he's local and a methodical planner. She notes that the victim's first and last names and the place the body was left start with "C." When a second murder follows the same pattern, Megan is vindicated, but her obsessions get the best of her, and her mental state impedes her work. With the help of medication, therapy, and a friend, can she regain her equilibrium and catch the alphabet killer?

Mostly the job is to ask questions.

The frustrating part,

the part that drives you crazy,

is that the people you really

want to talk to

are dead.

Help me!

Please help me!



No, leave me alone.


Help me!

Help me please!


Someone help me!


Please, someone help me.





Any idea who she is?


I didn't want to move her.

God, it's awful.

There are grass stains on her pants.

He dragged her.

You okay?

Did you just touch me?



I've had way too much coffee.


looks like there's some kind of

white hair on her jacket.

- Maybe animal fur?

- Man:
Yeah, I saw that.

- Watch your step.

- I know.

Think it's hers?


How do you know?

He raped her and then

strangled her to death.

Then put her pants back on?

That's my guess.

There you are.


- Brought you some tea.

- Thanks.

You're welcome.

You making a war room?

Carla had asthma.

I think the cat hair was in the car.



you're not gonna, um...

stay up all night with this stuff,

are you?


It's couple's night.

I'm sleeping with you.





- Don't be mad.

- I'm not.

Can I ask you one question?


Why do you think she got in the car?

It's kind of late, honey.

Why don't you give it a rest, huh?

Why did you get in the car?

The FBI seems to agree

with the initial profiles.

They feel there's a good chance

the killer's out of state;

sloppy, low intelligence;

someone with a knowledge

of Rochester who resides elsewhere;

probably a marginal type personality.

Okay, Megan.

He's not sloppy.

He didn't choose her at random.

And we're wasting our time looking

for truck drivers and transients.

The guy chased her in reverse

in broad daylight

in front of a dozen witnesses,

for Christ's sakes.

The kid got lucky for 20 seconds.

He's cold and calculating

and he's gonna do it again.

No, we don't have a serial killer.

He's an emotional impulse-driven

bumbling f*** up.

He's probably 1000 miles

from here running in terror.

What do you think, Ken?

Carla Castillo was a smart kid.

I don't think she's get

into a car with anyone

who looked like even

a marginal transient.

I'm not saying the guy looks

like f***ing Leatherface.

I'm saying...

The crime scene had all the earmarks

of a disorganized killer.

Do you know how many people have

the same first and last initial?

So the killer found a way to get

Carla Castillo into his car

and he drove her to Churchville.

That is not random.

- It might be.

- It's got nothing to do with the initials.

He watched her for a long time.

He waited and he did it exactly

the way he wanted to.

Any loss of control he displays

is intentional.

Megan, we've interviewed everybody

who ever met this girl

and we've got nothing.

Well, please let me interview them again.

Mr. Castillo?


You have news?


Nothing concrete yet.


You're here to see me then?

Yeah. I was hoping maybe

we could talk a little more.

Can I get you something?

Hank, this lady is a police officer.


Soda? Something?

No, thank you.

How about some coffee?

Just made it fresh.

That would be great.


- Let's go upstairs.

- Okay.


Was Tuesday the only day you saw Carla?

Pretty much, usually.

Her mother and I had a falling out.

I would like to have seen

her more, don't get me wrong.

And what would you do?

Have dinner.

Watch TV.


What did she like to eat?

You think I had something to do

with what happened, huh?


Then why are you asking me
