Inactive
Number of Victims
16
Modus Operandi
Tools/Weapons
Pair of pliers to rip the lateral incisors out of their mouths.
Killing Method
Meets a random prostitute and proceeds to beat them and finally strangle them. He likely sexually assaults them as well.
Method of Disposal
Bodies are simply dumped from his vehicle on the side of a highway, one such case resulted in the body being dumped on a deputy sheriff's lawn (he was drinking and a highway would have been too far a drive for him).
Cause
Likely tied to the abuse he received from his mother, Melinda Kenney, when he was just a child. He lost his lateral incisor during this abuse and since then, takes a fascination with beating women in the same fashion as he was while removing their lateral incisors after death.

The Tooth Fairy Killer is a serial killer in DEXTER, who killed 15 prostitutes in the 1980s and 1990s. He would rip out their lateral incisors post-mortem (which he would keep as trophies) and dump their bodies in public. He once even dumped a victim on a Deputy Sheriff's lawn. As a child Dexter Morgan was fascinated by him and followed his case very closely. The police were never able to identify him, due to his diligence. In 2010, the Tooth Fairy made a return by killing a prostitute named Rosalia Davalos and dumping her body near the water. He tried, but was unable to rip out her lateral incisor. Working on a theory that the Tooth Fairy returned, Dexter tracked him down and eventually killed him.
