Dixie's Restaurant crime scene

Homicide team at Dixie's

Dixie’s Restaurant is a location in Season Seven of Showtime’s series DEXTER.

It's the third shown crime scene where Joe Jensen (The Phantom Arsonist) burned a mother and child to death.


Miami, Florida


The Phantom Arsonist strikes again after having already set five people on fire. This time, the crime scene is a diner where a mother and her six-year-old daughter were burned to death in the bathroom.

A female witness reports seeing the arsonist coming through the flames wearing a silver-colored suit. When a male witness says the arsonist looked like an alien, the woman adds, “Or a monster” and “Seven feet tall.” Dexter muses that people find it difficult to comprehend that fellow human beings are capable of such acts, so inventing aliens and monsters makes it easier to accept.

No DNA or prints are found at the scene and the fire inspector, Phil Bosso, states that the same accelerant was used as in the four previous fires -- kerosene. Joey Quinn reports that the word “Bobby” was again scribbled in the soot, making it five “Bobby”s in two weeks. He and Debra Morgan wonder if the arsonist is signing his name.

Dexter Morgan watches the fire inspector, Bosso, as he calmly looks at the burned corpse of the dead child. He begins to suspect that Bosso may well be the arsonist.
