I know that everyone you trust is lying to you, playing you. Your two-faced friends, your fraud of a family, your whore of a mother. It all started with her Emma, but it's gonna end with you. See you soon.

Buck 120

The Lakewood Slasher's weapon of choice is a Buck 120 bowie knife. They kill most of their victims with it, however, some victims were murdered in other ways. Piper's main weapon was a Buck 120 knife that she used on most of her victims except for Will (she used a trencher saw for Emma to run into a wire to cause his death). But unlike Kieran, he used multiple weapons to kill his victims. He used a Fireplace Poker to kill his father and he used a scythe to kill Jake and a corkscrew on Eddie and he started the house fire that Emma and Eli where in (who they didn't know was occupied) to burn Seth Branson to death and used a pitchfork from the James's Barn to kill Quinn Maddox; although Kieran has use the Buck 120 to kill Haley Meyers but used different weapons for the rest of his victims and he loved to torment his victims before killing them in brutal methods, unlike Piper.

Voice Changer

The Lakewood Slasher uses a voice changer to conceal his actual identity's voice. Similar to Roman Bridger, he can mimic several voices, as can be seen in In The Trenches when he tricks Emma into coming to Will's house so he could trick Emma into causing his death. Piper and Kieran had used the voice changer mimic several other voices to lure there victims to them.


The Lakewood Slasher uses a smartphone to contact his victims, often teasing them. He texts, calls and DM's them, typically right before committing a murder. It cannot be tracked, making the Lakewood Slasher incognito. Piper and Kieran used the phone to call numerous people Emma Audrey Noah Brooke Rachel Kristen and Sheriff Acosta.

Abilities and Attributes

The Lakewood Slasher is human, but still has many deadly skills just like their movie counterpart Ghostface. The Lakewood Slasher is very skilled in Stealth. As Seen in in Hello, Emma, They are able to sneak up behind, Rachel Murray completely undetected and wrap a noose around her neck and push her to her death. Also, in The Dance when Sheriff Clark Hudson goes to a house to find the killer, he is attacked from behind. They were also able to go undetected on a school campus on two occasions, Once during a normal school day and the other after school during the midafternoon. They are able to move the body of Jake Fitzgearld into the school auditorium and cause it to fall on Brooke Maddox. This led to a school lockdown with several deputies on Campus. During the second occasion, they are able to attack both Kristen Lang and Seth Branson without anybody witnessing either being attacked. In Halloween, just before Killing Kieran Wilcox, The Lakewood Slasher is able to sneak up on a Prison guard and kill him after hiding in the air vents. Even During Parties with dozens of people around, they can go undetected and kill as seen in Revelations, they are able to kill Grayson at Brooke Maddox's party and In The Orphanage, Haley Meyers was killed at her own party. They are able to break into homes undetected even ones with advanced security systems like Nina Patterson's house. They were able to build a lair in the abandoned hospital in aftermath with photos of Emma Duval, Riley Marra and other victims of the original Lakewood Slasher as well as a headless pig and the severed head of Tyler O'Neill. They did this without anybody ever knowing they were there, but when Emma, Noah Foster and Audrey Jensen went to investigate, Sheriff Hudson and his deputies arrived on scene saying they got a tip that there was a break in at the abandoned hospital.

The Lakewood Slasher seems to have some degree of strength as they are able to successfully kill Sheriff Hudson and several deputies as well as being able to twist the neck of a security guard. In When a Stranger Calls , they are on the road, which causes Deputy Stevens to crash his car. Stevens then attempts to fight the Lakewood Slasher and is even able to fire a couple shots from his gun, only to be killed. In Revelations, The Lakewood Slasher (reveled to be Piper Shaw) was able to attack and tie up Seth Branson in a car, in an attempt to frame him for all the killings after he had escaped custody when Piper killed Deputy Roberts.

In addition to stealth, The Lakewood Slasher is great at evasion. As seen many times they can attack or kill their victims and disappear even with multiple deputies on the scene or large crowds. When they first Attack Brooke Maddox in the auditorium, Sheriff Hudson and several of his deputies arrive on the scene, only to arrest Seth Branson with no sign of The Lakewood Slasher. When Emma Duval and her friends are attacked at the bowling alley, several deputies are on the scene and the Lakewood Slasher vanished. After Killing Haley Meyers at her party with dozens of people around, they are able to disappear.

The Lakewood Slasher is great at luring their victims just before attacking or even killing them. Jake Fitzgearld gets a message from who he thinks is Brooke Maddox wanting to meet him in a barn house and steps on a bear trap, before eventually being killed. After a failed attempt by the Sheriff's department to find Tyler O' Neill and take him into custody (Unknown to them that he was already murdered), The Lakewood slasher is able to lure Riley Marra on the roof of the Sheriff's Station and kill her, after she had been left alone at the station. Before Piper Shaw reveals herself as the killer, she managed to lure the Lakewood Survivors all outside and when Emma Duvall goes to confront her, she sees that her mother Maggie is tied up.

The Lakewood Slasher is shown to be good at setting traps as they are able to place a bear trap for Jake Fitzgearld to step on and are able to hang Rachel Murray with a noose. Also, they set a trip wire for Emma Duval to step on which causes Will Belmont to be sliced in half. The Lakewood Slasher leaves Sheriff Hudson for Maggie and Emma Duval to find tied up, Maggie attempted to free him only for his organs to fall out, not knowing, that his stomach had already been cut open and the rope was all that was holding his organs together.

The Lakewood Slasher seems to know how to work Machinery as seen with Will Belmont's death.

The Lakewood Slasher is great at manipulation. They are able to trick Emma Duval into choosing between one of her best friends, Brooke Maddox or Riley Marra to spare, only for Riley to be killed. They do that again after calling her, pretending to be her boyfriend, Will Belmont and tells her to meet at Will's house. Once she arrives, she sees Will tied up and goes to help him, only for her to step on a trip wire leading to Will's death. When Emma and her Friends find the body of their Friend, Zoe Vaughn, inside a coffin in Wren Lake after thinking they heard her voice pleading for help, only to learn they are old recordings and Zoe had long been dead before they found her.

Just like Ghostface, The Lakewood Slasher is very skilled at killing with a knife, hitting vital organs with each victim they kill with a knife. They are also skilled with using other sharp weapons as objects to attack or kill which include a scythe, pitchfork and a corkscrew. In the Season 1 Finale, Brooke Maddox tries to hide in a freezer and they are able to stab right through it, nearly killing Brooke.

Kieran Wilcox carried a firearm on him at all times even brought one to school after causing the lockdown. He eventually kills his cousin Eli with one.

Just like Ghostface, The Lakewood Slasher has been able to survive fatal attacks. After her reveal, Piper Shaw had been shot in the chest by Audrey Jensen, but was able to get back up, only to be shot again, this time in the head, killing her for good. Prior to her reveal, Piper herself had been attacked by the Lakewood Slasher (Her accomplice Kieran Wilcox) and fell onto a cement block, which only left a bruise on her.

Identities & Motives


"Hey, sis. Surprise!"-Piper Shaw

Season 1 (2015)

  • Piper Shaw: Piper came to Lakewood around the same time her teenage lover Kieran Wilcox. Despite her being an adult, she also bonded with him and manipulated him into killing together and they both became lovers, and both started a new killing spree. Piper's motive was to get revenge on her long-lost half-sister, Emma Duval, for having a perfect life, and her mother, Maggie Duval, for putting her up for adoption. She was also seeking revenge for her father's death 21 years earlier. Ultimately, Piper almost managed to kill Maggie and Emma, but was betrayed and shot by Audrey, her first alleged accomplice, falling into the lake where she had faced off and revealed herself. Piper survived and tried to get back up, but Emma took the gun and shot her in the head before she could attack again, killing her instantly as she fell dead into the water, similar to how her father had fallen down the lake before its revealed in Season 2 that he'd survived his ordeal (with the showrunners confirming he was innocent and not the killer of the 1994 murders).

Season 2 (2016)

Kieran - Dawn of the Dead

"You're not wrong. You know, he probably really liked you!"-Kieran Wilcox

  • Kieran Wilcox: Kieran became the lover of Piper and teamed up with her in the new killing spree they both wanted revenge for their parents' abandoning them, so Kieran got close to Emma and pretended to be in a relationship with her and The Lakewood Six. It was highlighted in Revelations that Audrey had a secret connection to Piper in the 2015 killing spree, but it was later revealed she had only brought Piper to Lakewood as part of her research documentary and therefore, did not help her in the murders. In I Know What You Did Last Summer, the second accomplice of Piper kills Jake and starts harassing Audrey in addition to Emma. In The Vanishing, Audrey highlighted to Emma that Piper was with her the night that Rachel died in Hello, Emma. She assumes that her accomplice killed her. The accomplice is revealed to be Kieran Wilcox. He dated Piper and wanted to exact revenge on the rest of the Lakewood Six as Emma and Audrey killed her. He failed to do so, as Emma and Audrey subdued him and let the police take him to prison. Eight months later, he was murdered by The 3rd Killer, who slashed his throat, and stabbed him in the back of the neck.


  • The Third Killer: The Third Killer is (presumably) to be Kevin Duvall who possibly framed Brandon James for the 1994 Lakewood Murders and who killed Kieran for trying to hurt his daughter and her friends. However, this has only been theorized and it's more of a misdirected fauxshadowing to the (supposedly) other possible suspect and possible Third Killer: Troy James, due to being Brandon's older brother, who snapped due to being jealous of his brother's fling with Maggie (Daisy) Duval and having to take care of him, in killing his bullies and framing his own blood, by using his brother's mask in the 1994 murders.
    • Little was revealed about the 3rd killer. He made his first known appearance in When a Stranger Calls, calling the then imprisoned Kieran Wilcox, telling him "Who told you, you could wear my mask?"
    • Eight months later, the killer confronts Kieran in a courthouse holding cell, snapping the neck of his Prison Guard before approaching him. Kieran asks the killer who they are, and they respond by slashing Kieran's throat open. As Kieran tries to crawl toward the guard's gun, the killer stabs Kieran in the back of the neck, then twists the knife, killing him.
    • After admiring Kieran's corpse, the third killer escapes before they could be caught. The showrunners have since commented that the third killer would have been a Tatum Riley inspired character, who they described as a cool party girl who would befriend the main characters. Also, Kieran Wilcox would have been revealed to be alive.
    • However, due to the reboot season, none of this is canon. Their identity and motive were never revealed and is the only killer to still be alive (See Season 3).

  • Rachel: No. It's late.
  • Lakewood Slasher: What if I'm already here?
  • Rachel: (Thudding) What was that? Audrey, that's not funny. My mom is gonna be home soon. (Walks to closet door) Okay, if this is a coming out of the close joke, it needs to be significantly less creepy.

  • Emma: Um, my name is Emma Duval and the code word is, uh, Amethyst, um, I, I just found my kitchen door open?
  • Lakewood Slasher: Just take a deep breath, Emma. We got a patrol nearby, he can be there in a few minutes.
  • Emma: Should I maybe go wait outside?
  • Lakewood Slasher: You're safer inside. If someone tried to break in, he probably took off when the alarm sounded.

  • Emma: Don't even joke about that.
  • Lakewood Slasher: (chuckles) Sorry, ha. So, what else do you like? Comedy? Horror?
  • Emma: Definitely not horror. Real life is scary enough these days. I can barely sleep anymore.

  • Emma: What?
  • Lakewood Slasher: You sound tired.

  • Lakewood Slasher: What? You gonna try a little batting practice on me?
  • Emma: Yeah! You're damn right I will!
  • Lakewood Slasher: Gotta find me first. And I could be anywhere.
  • Emma: I've got your number. I'm calling the police.
  • Lakewood Slasher: By all means. They'll reach a nice, confused man named Art, who works at GPB Security, and the cops will never get here in time. So I suggest you, Talk. To. Me!
  • Emma: What do you want from me?
  • Lakewood Slasher: To show you the truth, Emma.
  • Emma: About what?

  • Lakewood Slasher: Don't you know the rules? Now that you and Zoë had sex, you're both on the slasher chopping block. Isn't it how that goes?
  • Noah: You need to update your genre references. That's a pretty outdated way of thinking.
  • Lakewood Slasher: Come into the woods Noah or I'm gonna make sure your little girlfriend needs a closed casket.
  • Noah: There are a lot of fairy tales and horror movies about going into the woods. And they usually end up with wolves, or bears, ax-wielding maniac. I mean, I am really going out on a limb here, know, why don't you give me something? Tell me, why you're doing all this murder stuff. Hello?

"The Vanishing" (First Call to Miguel Acosta)

  • Miguel: Acosta here.

  • According to the 8-minute sneak peak, the Killer seems to have the skill of sneaking-up on his victims.
  • The Lakewood Slasher's mask evokes the hockey mask worn by Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers' mask, according to executive producer Jill Blotevogel. [1]
  • The Lakewood Slasher doesn't kill domestic animals, evident when he kills Nina Patterson but leaves her dog Sage alive.
  • Piper Shaw was revealed to be the first killer in Revelations, and was later shot to death.
  • The Lakewood Slasher's mask was originally stated by the producers to be made out of human flesh. This can vaguely be seen in promotional teasers. When the pilot was finished, the mask was redesigned and digitally altered in certain scenes to include a white mask, which slightly mirrors the original Ghostface mask. 
  • In I Know What You Did Last Summer, Audrey is harassed by the new killer who makes calls to her, threatening her about revealing the secret connection she had with Piper to her friends. 
  • In the second season, the Lakewood Slasher called in a total, seven different people.
  • Kieran Wilcox was revealed to be the second killer in When a Stranger Calls, and was arrested unharmed after a brief struggle.
  • The Brandon James/Lakewood Slasher killer does not appear in Season 3, as there will now be a new killer every season.
  • Unlike Ghostface, the Lakewood Slasher has used other equipment to kill his victims, including the original 1994 unknown (possible Third Killer) killer and Kieran Wilcox (Piper only killed one of her victims, Will, in a non-traditional way).
    • This would then occur later for two different Ghostface killers: Beth in Season 3, and Amber Freeman in Scream (2022), with the former from the TV series using various new methods of killings.
    • On March 18, 2022, the former showrunners Michael Gans and Richard Register revealed an unused concept of Kieran's killer: “We had this kind of really cool, very affluent party girl character who was going to come in and kind of give them all a run for their money, but also was going to be the best possible friend you could have. It was kind of a Tatum character in some ways, but like Tatum strong, like liquor is strong. Like straight Scotch is strong. Tatum super-strong. And she was a contender to be the killer at the end of the story, but we never got to pitch it. We never even got to pitch it. We were like, ‘This ride is over!'
    • The directors of Scream VI as well as the script have confirmed that the Lakewood Slasher was in the subway scene along with other passengers dressed as Ghostface, making this the first something from the Tv series has been referenced in the movies. However, no known footage or photos of the Lakewood Slasher in that scene are known to exist. [2]
