damn it. [rattling] come on out of there, punk! [rattling] i'm warning you! [cat meows] [meow] [roar] aah! aah! ohh! ah! ah! ohh! [crack] this is houston's fifth ward. it accounts for a large percent of the city's growing homicide rate, due to gang violence and a bustling narcotics trade. although in the last 48 hours, there have been 3 distinctive murders in the ward. distinctive? 3 men, 3 different socioeconomic groups, all killed on the street with theirecks snapped. there appears to be no other injury,
or motive. ahem. the ward's detectives are inundated with homicides. gang violence is a big problem. shootings, armed robberies, it's an everyday occurrence, but this type of street attack is new to them. could it be gang related, maybe some new type of initiation te? the gangs in the ward use guns. in fact, no known gangs exhibit this type of m.o. what about dope? these guys come up with pretty freaky ways of killing the competition to get their message out. yeah, but there just doesn't seem to be any connection between the victims and the drug world. homeless man, a construction worker... security guard. just 3 dead men and no witnesses. we're looking for a homicidal serial criminal in a neighborhood pulated by criminals. the challenge will be separating him from the rest.
ibs-d. you know the symptoms when they start. abdominal pain. urgent diarrhea. now there's prescription xifaxan. xifaxan is a new ibs-d treatment that helps relve your diarrhea and abdominal pain symptoms. and xifaxan works differently. it's a prescription antibiotic that acts mainly in the digestive tract. do not use xifaxan if you have a history of sensitivity to rifaximin, rifamycin antibiotic agents, or any components of xifaxan. tell your doctor right away if your diarrhea worsens while taking xifaxan, as this may be a sign of a serious or even fatal condition.
gideon: "our life is made by the death of others." leonardo da vinci. we got a construction worker-- outsider in the community. we got a security guard-- that's an authority figure. and then we got a homeless man. that's a powerless victim that no one would notice missing. so who's he targeting? let's see if any of the victims frequented the same stores or sites. he used blitz attacks, which means he most likely lacks the interpersonal skills. he needed to coerce his victims into coming close. and he also used the element of surprise, which means he may have stalked his victims prior to killing them. well, if that's the case, i want to go to the last crime scene to see where he may have been hiding. i want to see the neighborhood for myself. go. i'll go with you. the rest of us will go to the precinct and set up shop. i'll map out the area and see if i can find any places the victims would have visited in the neighborhood. good. maybe we can find a connection between them. i'll help you with that. i can handle it. i wasn't suggesting that you couldn't.
we really do appreciate your help. oh, we're glad to assist. the vic, the security guard, was patrolling construction sites in the neighborhood. some equipment was vandalized. you think the murder's related? the damage was kinof unspecific, more like something kids would do. the guard had a pistol, which is now missing. this whole area, it's empty? except for a liquor store around that corner and the locksmith on this end. and what about this building right here? oh, empty for years. where's he going? find out when he comes back. detective fuller! let me see what this here's about. her son was at the community center last night. i've lived in this neighborhood all my life. so has my son. i didn't raise him to be a vandal. yes, ma'am, i'm sure you didn't. kelvin!
we was up here last night. we messed up some of the equipment over there. i found some spray painton his clothes, and i knew he was up to trouble with his no-good friends. he will not be vandalizing his own neighborhood again. will you, son? no, ma'am. i was gonna drive him to the police station, but i saw you already here. how much damage was done? actually, we're here because there was a murder last night. murder? what murder? security guard. oh, my god. no. no. he chased us, but i lost him. i swear, i ain't touch him. don't say another word, kelvin. kelvin...i only have one question for you and then you can go. did the security guard fire his weapon at you? no. , like, shot into the air to scare us. and that's why we ran. thanks. you can go. we can go? yes, ma'am. you just sent away the last person
a boy that frightened of his mother and that slight doesn't have the skill, courage, or size to kill the way this unsub does. hey, guys. [beeping] over her someone was living here. there, you got a dirty blanket, hamburger wrappers, and soda cans. those kids weren't thonly ones here last night. [construction noises outside] what's that? one of the detectives' wives made us cookies. wow. homemade cookies? yeah, i guess that's what they mean by southern hospitality. what are you saying? southern hospitality! i need to concentrate-- how can anybody hear with all this work going on? well, you're gonna have to get used to it. construction crews are working around the clock
city's trying to return to its splendor, and that means that houston's poorest are being kicked out of their homes. unsub might be homeless. appes to have been living in a building next to where the security guard was attacked. reid: these are the locations of the last 3 murders, all near abandoned buildings. i noticed the neighborhood. maybe he was recentl displaced. could be a motive. construction worker, security guard at a construction site. payback? what about the homeless man? we get a lot of beefs down there among the homeless. that one could have just been a fight about space or food. let's get a list ofesidents who've been kicked out of their homes by the gentrification. you and reid check the shelters? yeah, we're on it. unless... you ok with that, reid? i'm fine with that. we should check see if there are any mental hospitals in the area, maybe someone who was recently released into the streets. mm-hmm. got it. morgan, can you cover the police records for the last week? if it's someone who's been recently made homeless, he might have stolen food, comfort items, blankets, toiletries--we might be able to track a pattern of theft.

[announcerhange your apartment.change the world. victim's name is travis overby. that's his buddy over there. he was working a jackhammer on a new trunkline. he said one second travis was going down the sewer, the next second he was down at the bottom dead. from one second to the next. someone has to go down. aw, see, this ain't cool. i'm putting in for hazard pay. good luck with that.
it's pretty clean for a sewer! the trash is pretty much cleared away. ah, i got a dirty blanket... something else rolled up in the corner. it's obvious he made himself a place to sleep, but... he cleared it all away. it looks a lot like the last place he was in. huh. a new temporary home. guys, it looks like the jackhammer must have knocked some of the ceiling loose. it fell down all around him. i'd be pretty scared, too. it's about survival. carved out a place of his own, saw a threat, he attacked. that's got to be why the victims were so random.
they just happened to be intruding on his home. we'll need to see the other crime scenes. you all right? yeah. you owe me. you all are looking for someone in charge? i'm angie, one of the administrators. hi. i'm agent prentiss. this is agent reid. we're with the fbi. really? really. it looks like you have your hands full. with the demolitions in the projects and the abandoned buildings, there's no place else for people to sleep. well, thank god there are people like you who take the time-- do you have a list of everyone who comes through here? angie: uh, we ha a sign-in sheet, but we don't force anyone to sign if they don't want to. some who do don't even use their real names. elvis eats here a lot. we would appreciate any lists you have. why? have you noticed anyone who acts unusually aggressive towardthe other residents? what's this about? a series of murders in the area. the perpetrator may be a homeless man. maybe someone who stays here. he may even be in this room as we speak.
have you noticed anyone who acts paranoid or displays explosive, unprovoked bursts of violence, more than just pushing and shoving? i mean, someone who really tries to harm others. there are territorial fights over food and places to sleep. the nurse treats people for minor injuries all the time, but no one's seriously hurt. if anyone does come to mind, give us a call. thank you. a murderer? i'm sorry. uh--um... this investigation is still-- no one's actually been hurt in a shelter. we're just-- we're acting with an abundance of caution. so, please, let the police know if anything unusual occurs. thanks. there's a high presence of mental disorders with the homeless. yeah. what the hell was that in there? what? e may even b in this room as we speak"?
were investigating a serial homicide. should i have pretended there's no danger? we just left that woman potentially afraid of every man who walks into this shelter. again, until we find this unsub, how is that a bad thing? what is e matter with you? what do you mean, what's the matter with me? i have never seen yo act like this. oh, really? oh, in the months that you know me, you've never seen me act this way? hey, no offense, emily, but... you don't really know what you're talking about, do you? good. thanks. just got back from the local homeless shelter. the administrator hasn't noticed anyone new displaying aggressive behavior. he's not in a homeless shelter. i just talked to gideon and morgan. they think that he's killin to protect some makeshift shelter of his own. so are we ready for a profile yet? we're missing something. how did this homeless man learn to kill so efficiely? you know what we need? we need to get lucky.
