Leo Santolongo is a character in Season Seven of the Showtime series DEXTER.

He is the second shown victim of The Phantom Arsonist, found on the third floor in a parking lot elevator near the University.

Summary[]

Arson Investigator Phil Bosso initially states the incident was like the previous one, a petroleum-based accelerant with the intent of self-incineration. According to Phil, the killer poured the fuel or gasoline over his head, burning from a "center mass" upward and downward.

Dexter investigates the incident further, after requesting to close the door so that he and Phil are alone inside. He notices a "void" within the scorch marks, just like with the previous car victim. He mentions a "phantom," suggesting whoever killed Leo stood in the doorway blocking him from escaping while also watching him burn alive (wearing a protective suit to avoid personal harm). Of interest, the name "Bobby" is etched into ashes on the elevator door. Dexter wonders if this is the killer's name or the last person on his mind.

According to Detective Joey Quinn's report, Leo was a grad student with high promise. It's unknown why the Phantom chose Leo as a victim.
