In Bridgewater, Florida, nineteen year old Abby Kelton is found dead, the lower half of her body eaten by alligators. Of those parts of her remains still intact, the BAU know all her fingers were cut off at the knuckles, her throat slashed, and religious based satanic symbols carved into her chest. Murders purported to have a satanic ritual component are Rossi's specialty, "purported" as his published theory is that satanic cults do not exist. Because of the religious nature of the case, the authorities interview Father Marks, the pastor at the local church. During the investigation, two other women from Father Mark's congregation go missing. At the medical examiner's officer, they also learn that Abby's stomach contents include ten fingers from tip to knuckle. However, each finger belongs to ten separate individuals, and none of them are hers. When another dead body surfaces at Father Mark's church - that person who fits the type of those people identified as belonging to the fingers... Written by Huggo

IN Florida!!

Usually Don't worry about the "Outcome" of an Unsub. Lot of times they are taken Out In the episode. "Lucky" is ONE Time I'd Want to see one In The Chair!! ("Riding the Lightning" is the One time I Didn't!) Excellent Episode.
