    A university student is murdered and attached to her body is a letter from her killer, detailing a famous unethical psychological experiment, an experiment that the killer had replicated on the victim, resulting in her death. Detectives Murphy and Rossi initially dismiss the letter as a bid to throw them off the scent - until more bodies are found, each with their own letter attached. The detectives realize they're chasing a killer who doesn't just want his victims' bodies, but their minds as well.
