Added DiffLines:

* AmateurSleuth: David starts investigating the Head Hunter killings by himself when Aura comes to him after the deaths of her parents.


Added DiffLines:

* DecapitationPresentation: Aura becomes tangled with the Head Hunter killings when she comes across the headless body of her mother, and then sees the killer holding up her parents' heads, which obfuscates his features. [[spoiler:The trope is played straight with her father's head, but is subverted with her mother, who is actually the killer. The body on the ground belongs to someone else, and she is holding her own head in such way that it makes Aura think that she is seeing her mother's decapitated head being displayed on front of the killer]].


Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: The killer is shown petting a cat before another bloody murder, and even starts taking care of the lizards that belonged to the first victim.
