Two years of investigating murder cases had come to an end. Twenty-six women had died in those two years; one every month for twenty-six months. Alison Gage, a twenty-seven-year-old agent, had dedicated the first two years of her FBI career to tracking down the One-Mo Killer, as he had been called. Finally, the Behaviour Analysis Unit had brought him down, or so they thought.
Keith Smith was a small-town businessman in his forties who led an ordinary life. At first, the case had been confusing, with everything pointing to different people. When Keith came up on the radar, everything fit together. He was the only person who could have done everything within the time constraints and with the tools used. Alison had been delighted when the case had closed, confident the world had seen the last of the One-Mo Killer.
This morning, Brent Weeb, another team member, had come into her office and given her the news. The judge had let Keith Smith walk, he was a free man, and they couldn’t charge him again. There was nothing the BAU could do, until another victim showed up.
Alison sat in her chair stunned, this couldn’t be for real. Taking a deep breathe to keep from losing her temper she finally spoke, “How could they let him walk?”
