As the local race for district attorney heats up, candidate Brian Henderson's opponent attempts to smear him by alleging the man's teenaged son, Jacob, is a member of a satanic cult. Jacob comes into the newsroom to meet Irene and assert his innocence in an interview.
The story goes that he briefly visited a coven of high school-aged witches to dissuade his friend Sammy from joining. But a dark figure looms unseen over the proceedings - a ritualistic murderer who leaves pentagrams drawn in blood next to his victims. Undaunted, Irene looks deeper - and what she sees brings her face-to-face with an evil that is all too human.
