Twenty-something blond women have been abducted in the Olympia, Washington area. The abductions have taken place about three months apart. The dead bodies of three of the four abducted have just been found, the bodies embalmed causing the deaths. The autopsies also show the abductor is a necrophiliac. Sandra Lombardini, the mother of Brooke Lombardini, the only abducted woman not found, has hired a clairvoyant, Stanley Usher, to help provide information on the case. Usher states that he knows Brooke is still alive. Among the BAU, Rossi in particular is angry about Usher's participation in the case. As the BAU do their analysis to get close to identifying the possible abductor, J.J. thinks that Usher may be able to fill in the missing piece of the puzzle.
