Episode Info

A missing persons case in Philadelphia takes a grim turn when the body of a black man is discovered. The victim's body had been drained of all pigment, in the same manner as other corpses that had been located a few months earlier. Wondering why the earlier homicide had never been fully investigated, Mulder and Scully investigate -- and in so doing are obliged to mix practical science with ancient African folklore. Originally broadcast October 18, 1996, "Teliko" was written by X-Files co-producer Howard Gordon.
