Top 10 ‘Twisted’ Murder Suspects

August 22 01:12 2013

Twisted is a show on ABC Family that is new this year. It follows the story of Danny Desai. Danny was recently let out of juvenile hall for murderer his aunt as a child. As Danny tries to begin school, another student is murdered. The citizens and the police chief question whether Danny is guilty.

The story follows who murdered a student named Regina Crane. She was killed at her own party and the police haven’t discovered the murder weapon. They have begun to assume that it is Danny but are looking into other characters.

Danny has a few stable relationships in the show. One is his friend Jo, then there is Danny’s secret lover Lacey. The show explores the bond between the three because Lacey and Jo saw the dead body of Danny’s aunt. His mother tries to support him but Danny is cold toward her.

In the most recent episode, Danny was expelled from school for poisoning Cole, his soccer teammate. Danny said that he was framed. After he was expelled, a private investigator was hired to help on Danny’s case.

I recap Twisted every week. I question who killed Regina and what is going to happen in the end. This top 10 list is simply based on my observations throughout the season. It may change after next week’s finale but, as of now, this is my list of who did it.

These are listed in an order. Ten is the least likely to have killed Regina and one is the most likely. I will tell you the character’s name, their motive and alleged proof.

10. Kyle Masterson

Motive: He wanted a more exciting job and wanted to put Danny back in jail.

Proof: He is doing a poor job with the case. He is doing so poorly that, throughout the season, I have given him a bad cop moment score. Also, Danny killed his aunt when Jo, Kyle’s daughter, was around. Any parent would try to get revenge on that.

9. Unknown Character

Motive: Obviously, there is none. Maybe there is something that the viewer doesn’t know. Twisted is coming back in January. Maybe there will be someone we don’t know.
Proof: There are so many twists. Maybe we don’t know. Also, someone sent Regina money and it may have been someone else.

Motive: Unknown. However, he could be trying to get Danny out of town by blaming the murder on him.

Proof: He was hiding documents that had to do with Vikram Desai.

7. Phoebe

Motive: She hated Regina before she died.
Proof: She put fish in her glove compartment. She tried too hard to show that she was grieving. She was at the party when Regina died.

6. Tyler

Motive: Making a movie about Danny’s life
Proof: He told Jo that he wanted to make a really good documentary about Danny returning and a great plot twist would be another murder.

5. Karen Desai

Motive: Regina was having an affair with her husband.

Proof: Regina may have been having an affair with her husband. She already confessed. She hasn’t really stated where she was the night of the murder.

4. Sarita

Motive: She wanted Danny to get out of school. She wanted to be Lacey’s best friend. She is a sociopath.
Proof: She is constantly calling Danny a murderer and socio. She doesn’t like to talk about Regina. She’s really (really) mean. She wants Danny to be guilty which would mean that she would get off. She was at Regina’s party too.

3. Archie

Motive: He may have been cheating on Lacey with Regina.

Proof: There was a video of Archie that Regina made. He lied to the police about his alibi. He hates Danny and constantly tries to convince the student body that he is a villain that is capable of murder. Also, he may have set Danny up for poisoning Cole with mothballs.

2. Vikram Desai*

Motive: Unknown. He may have had an affair with Regina.

Proof: The address that sent Regina blackmail money belonged to Vikram. The company that transferred the money to him had a logo that matched his dead sister’s/Regina’s necklace. Also, he had family problems with his sister and Regina ended up with his sister’s necklace. Weird.

*He may be dead. But, they never found a body so it is questionable.

I think Danny did it. I will think Danny did it until it is proven that he didn’t. Think about it; what is more twisted than having your main character end up killing Regina and getting away with it?

Motive: He is a true sociopath. Regina said that she knew why he killed his aunt and he was afraid that she would tell. Regina owned his aunt’s necklace and it freaked him out.

Proof: He received a text message from Regina the night before she died. His alibi is weak. He attended Regina’s party. He has her necklace and didn’t tell anyone. He hid it. Also, he burned his aunt’s pictures so no one could find the similarities in the necklaces. Also, he has murdered before.

Do you have a suspect in mind?
