At the beginning of Season 3 he 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 he was paid a visit by Debra where she gave him her card and told him to call. After this the Skinner captures and skins him for information. After getting little info off of him, The Skinner kills Wendell, leaving Morgan vulnerable and cautious. 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 she had information on the case when she just called to blame her for Wendell's death.
