The recent murder case in which a female student murdered her classmate shocked not only Japan, but also the entire world. And with this saddening incident, Psycho-Pass producers decided to omit the 4th episode of the New Edit Version which has scenes of juvenile crimes.
The website only states “schedule reasons,” but the official Twitter account of the TV anime has a detailed explanation:
今週放送予定の「PSYCHO-PASS サイコパス 新編集版」第4話は、内容的に現在放送するのにふさわしくないという判断があり、来週放送予定の第5話を繰り上げて放送することになりました。何卒ご了承ください。今後第4話の放送の予定はありません。

“It is decided that the content of the 4th chapter of ‘Psycho-Pass: New Edit Version,’ which was scheduled to be aired this week, is not appropriate to air in the current situation, so we have moved up the 5th episode instead. We ask for your kind understanding. There is no plan for the episode to be aired in the future.”
