Daniel Ortese is a character in DEXTER. He and his wife Awilda Ortese were the first unfortunate victims of Carlos Fuentes and Marco Fuentes. Daniel had withdrawn all his money from an ATM and given it to the Fuentes Brothers. Both he and his wife were killed by a machete and their bodies were left in their house, going unnoticed for weeks. It was only after three more people were killed that their maggot-infested bodies were discovered by Detective Debra Morgan and Officer Cira Manzon.
