Crime, Drama, Mistério
The police are investigating the murder of popular high school student Adam Lloyd, his body found in the woods on Massanutten Mountain in McAllister County, Virginia. The BAU are called in when the police discover a skeleton nearby, seemingly killed the same way as Adam, with the person's skull cut open and a message scrawled on an adjacent tree saying "Satan Lives LOD". No one knows what LOD means. Upon arriving at the scene, the BAU learn that a young woman named Cherish Hanson was running with Adam that morning, she is missing. The team are aware that someone local is the unsub and they use the tactic of recruiting locals as the search parties to lure the unsub into what is going on. The discovery of what LOD stands for leads the authorities in a certain direction, but Gideon's chat with a local girl uncovers the truth. Meanwhile, Reid admits to Morgan that he has been plagued with nightmares about work of late.
