Whenever a dastardly villain dies on a soap, it’s the perfect set up for a whodunit murder mystery, and now DAYS OF OUR LIVES fans are asking “Who killed Deimos?” The only problem is that he was such a monster that nearly everyone in Salem would have a reason to want him dead!
The other thing that complicates this particular investigation is that Deimos has been pushing the mind-altering drug Halo all over town, and before he met his maker, had drugged everyone at the Martin House party with Halo 2.0. So even someone without a motive could have had their mental state twisted enough to put a steak knife through his chest. But on the plus side, it also means that even a popular character could have killed Deimos because the drug is the perfect excuse to avoid a murder conviction!
As DAYS’ latest murder mystery unfolds, let’s take a look at some of the most likely suspects, shall we?

Poor Gabi has been kidnapped twice by Deimos! One time he held her in a freezer where she nearly died, and the other he poisoned her! So she’s certainly got a really good reason to want revenge on the guy. But is she really the murdering type?

As a cop, Hope naturally would want to take down Deimos through legal means. But since Deimos kidnapped and tortured her true love, Bo, leading to his death, she could very well have decided that jail wasn’t a fitting enough punishment!

As an ISA agent, John is always working on the side of justice, which naturally puts him at odds with Salem’s villains.

Dario’s future plans with his father fell to pieces when Eduardo was busted by the cops and sent to prison.
