The second season of Criminal Minds features several cases from the series’ previous seasons, including a murder case involving a serial killer who has a pattern of targeting children. A decade earlier, in Pennsylvania, a group of sex offenders lived in a building and formed a protective cluster. The BAU identifies the serial killer as Daniel J. Travanti, who murdered over twenty women over nine years but was never caught. In addition, the team investigates the deaths of two couples in Akron, Ohio, who were forced to have sex. During this case, the team has a surprise visitor, who has come to visit Robert and the team.
In the next episode of the series, the team investigates the disappearance of three women in San Diego. The killer had abducted the women and drowned them. The victims’ bodies were found with a piece of skin removed from their right foot. Meanwhile, the team uncovers a serial killer’s bizarre agenda by tracking down the killer’s former Interpol colleagues.
