"I cut off their eyelids so they had to look at me while they died, OK?"
Clay had previously murdered Lauren Henning a few years before and was convicted based solely on the confession he made to the investigator, Detective Dean Truby, but his conviction was overturned when Truby landed in jail. As a result he resumes killing, starting with Emma Pierce. He was later apprehended by Mac while trying to abduct and murder Katie Lawrence.
Once Clay is apprehended on a rooftop and after being handcuffed, Clay intentionally falls off the roof in an attempt to frame Mac for murder. When he crashes onto the roof of a squad car, Flack and other officers look up to see Mac looking down, horrified. It was originally thought that Mac had thrown him off the roof, but he was later cleared. During this a man charges at Mac and reveals that Clay also killed his daughter, Lily.
Though his methods of murder vary, Clay usually cuts off the eyelids of his victims with a modeling knife before killing them. His second and third victims also had their heads wrapped with packing tape.
