Quick pitch

A severely antisocial killer makes a series of seemingly unrelated murders. Detectives struggle to piece together anything cohesive to stop the spree.

A psychic offers his services after he has visions that come true. The detectives get emailed letters with cryptic one liners. At first they suspect the letters are from the killer. The psychic gets a vision that the messages are not taunts but help and he leads them to an address.

As it turns out the letters are from an autistic man who reads newspapers obsessively. He is able to relate the method of the past killings to a letter (A-H), which nobody has noted, and the days between incidents to a number. Through this notation he recognises chess openings and knowing many such openings he can predict the next notated move. The challenge remains what kind of murder/method is the next letter and where. How do the psychic and the autistic coordinate for the detectives benefit.
