Modus Operandi

Targeting Caucasian brunette women, Goehring would abduct the victims from public places while Frost kept an eye out for potential witnesses. The two would then take them to Goehring's compound, where he would torture them with homemade, medieval-style tools while Frost videotaped the acts. After a few days, Goehring would kill the women in an unspecified way.


Goehring was never directly profiled by the team, but he appears to have been a narcissist as well as a sexual sadist. He referred to his compound as his "kingdom" and himself as "the Master", suggesting some sort of messianic delusions. As for Frost, he was described as a man in his early to mid-20s, 5'8", slightly built, shy, and retiring, but groomed by a separatist and armed with assault weaponry. Like Goehring, he is unlikely to surrender if cornered. His obsession with cleanliness and order is deeply ingrained, which will be reflected in his home and vehicle. He is the submissive partner who keeps to himself, avoids eye contact, rarely speaks, and when he does, he sounds "meek, almost feminine". As a result of the death of Goehring, who had brainwashed him with his rules and frequently told him how weak and pathetic he was, Frost suffered a major crisis and had to become Goehring as a way to keep him alive.
