Wendell Owens was a character on DEXTER. He was the doorman for Freebo, a drug dealer. Debra Morgan tried to convince Wendell to give her information on his boss.
Wendell worked as Freebo's doorman, even witnessing Dexter go to Freebo's place for drugs. After Freebo's disappearance, Wendell stayed under the radar until he was tracked down by Debra Morgan. He was getting familiar and friendly with her until his mother came by and pulled him out of the police station, discouraging him to talk. Later, Wendell was paid a visit by Debra and she gave him her card so that he could call her. Soon after this, The Skinner, who was watching Wendell, captured and skinned him for information. After getting little info from of him, The Skinner let Wendell die. Unlike the previous Skinner victims, who were strangled to death after being skinned, Wendell died from the skinning process itself, which removed the skin on his left arm and chest. After Wendell's death, his mother found Debra's card in his pants pocket and called her to visit, saying that she had information on the case. In truth, his mother only wanted to confront and blame Debra for Wendell's death.
