Scully and Mulder go to Cleveland to assist the local police in the investigation of a bizarre death. They've found the remains of a woman in her car but the body is in an advanced state of deterioration, even though she's only been missing for a short while. By the time Scully gets to the autopsy, there is no flesh left on the skeleton. Mulder sees similarities in this death and a series of deaths in another state where all of the victims had responded to a "Lonely Hearts" personal ad in their local newspaper. They now think the killer has moved on to Internet chat rooms to lure his victims.
