About Him

Overview... a young deputy sheriff who suddenly finds himself on a huge case. Dewey is challenged with finding a serial killer whose calling card is murdering teenagers after calling them on the phone and harassing them with various scary questions – often inspired by horror movie trivia. The media is involved now too in the person of Gale Weathers, so the situation has every chance of spiraling out of control.

Personality… goofy, but serious about his work. Dewey understands the gravity of the situation: murders are happening, and it’s up to him to catch the killer. When he begins getting leads, he opens up new cans of worms, entering the high school scene of secrets, lies, and parties.
