Joseph Cepeda is a character in Season Two of the Showtime series DEXTER.

He was killed by Dexter Morgan prior to the series, and is one of the Bay Harbor Butcher 18.

Detective Gonzales is assigned to Cepeda.

Summary

His body is recovered from the water off the coast of Miami along with seventeen others, and brought into an air-conditioned field morgue to preserve them.

On the whiteboard, it's written that Cepeda was convicted of murder in 1982.

When Lila Tourney tells Dexter that she doesn't believe that evil people exist in the world, he takes her inside the field morgue to see his victims. (He doesn't tell her that he killed them.) To his surprise, instead of being horrified, Lila is fascinated by the bags of corpses and even asks to touch Cepeda's body, which is numbered as 9.

Later, Dexter secretly returns to the morgue and sabotages the air conditioning unit, which turns all the bodies into pink mush.

In Frank Lundy's office on his whiteboard, Cepeda is again noted to be Bay Harbor Butcher Victim Number 9.
