A little research shows that the letter came from a wealthy woman outside of his jurisdiction, but no matter how hard he tries to hand the letter off to someone else, it comes landing right back into his lap. Follow Chad as he tries to solve both problems—his serial killer and this mysterious dead aristocrat.
