THE LONG-SHOT SUSPECTS
They might not have been at the party where Deimos died, but they all hated him nonetheless.
(John Aniston) Old grievances over the aforementioned Helena are just the tip of the iceberg to explain Victor’s hatred for his sibling. Since coming to Salem, Deimos has stripped Victor of his fortune, paralysed his beloved wife and run amok through the family. As many people know, Victor isn’t afraid to spill some blood when it’s necessary.
(Thaao Penghlis) A titanic clash between these two dodgy businessmen has pitted them against each other, but are battles over Orwellian devices and cursed amulets enough for Andre to kill? He’s a Stefano-trained lunatic, but Andre’s guilt appears too obvious.
MAGGIE HORTON KIRIAKIS
(Suzanne Rogers) An innocent victim of the Kiriakis brothers’ feud, Maggie didn’t fare well when Deimos switched her medication for poisonous drugs, precipitating her battle with paralysis when she plunged down the Kiriakis mansion staircase. It would be a novel approach for Maggie to have slipped into the party and knifed Deimos in a fit of rage.
KATE ROBERTS DIMERA
(Lauren Koslow) The murder victim’s former fiancée didn’t waste any time turning against him when Deimos blamed her for his neardrowning death in the river last year. From that moment on, Kate has hated him, but would killing him really be worth all the effort?
(Nadia Bjorlin) Originally meeting Deimos as “Robert,” a charming guy in Chicago, Chloe renewed her fling with him after saving him from drowning. Once she saw his true colours, she went to great lengths to keep Nicole and Holly away. Is she capable of murder?
(Jordi Vilasuso) Dario grew to hate Deimos for sending his father Eduardo to prison after spending most of his life hating Eduardo for abandoning him as a child. He could have killed Deimos to frame Chad and keep him from Abigail, having recently admitted that he was at the party and photographed Chad standing over the corpse. But this possible lie sounds too much like an easy fix to this mystery.
