A Horrible Mind is the tenth episode in season one of CSI: Miami.
Horatio, Speedle and Calleigh root through the evidence in the homicide of a strange, unorthodox college professor when they find him tortured and tied to a tree. Their suspicions are immediately directed towards his thirteen cult-like students. Elsewhere, Delko and Megan investigate a car found in the water with a dead body in the trunk, and immediately suspect an insurance scam.
A much hated college professor is found strung up a tree, mirroring that of a lynch. Horatio investigates and finds out that the professor taught much about racial and religious hatred, and frequently physically and verbally abused his students as a project, even to the point of stripping down a boy in front of his classmates and tying him to a tree. Meanwhile, Eric investigates the mysterious drowning of a man inside of his car trunk that rolled down the hill into the lake. Horatio finds out that a student of the professor's killed him, ridiculing her to the point of her snapping. Eric finds out that the man was reaching into his trunk and fell in, as the trunk door shut and the car rolled down the hill.
