Arthur Mitchell is an unassuming suburbanite and family man — who for 30 years has been living a double life as a serial killer. Frank Lundy dubs him the “Trinity Killer” because of a recurring pattern of three killings. First, Mitchell would kill a young woman in a bathtub by slicing her femoral artery with a straight razor while putting her in a choke hold, and holding up a small mirror so that he can see her face as she dies. His second victim is a married mother of two, whom he kidnaps and forces to jump to her death from an abandoned building. His third victim is a father of two, whom he bludgeons to death with a hammer. At each site he places a small sample of his sister’s ashes, and arranges the victim’s arm to point at the ash. He has repeated this cycle in different cities all over the United States. It is later discovered that the Trinity Killer also takes a fourth victim, a young boy whom he dresses in cowboy pyjamas and convinces to play with a train set in a parody of his childhood. Following this, he will bury the boy alive in cement at a Four Walls’ building site. This fourth kill in the cycle was not discovered until much later due to the fact that the boys were reported as missing rather than killed/murdered. At first, Dexter Morgan is fascinated by Mitchell’s efficient killing methods and apparent ability to balance his familial responsibilities with his secret life as a serial killer.
