Appearances (4/24)

Season 1 (4/10)


Shortly after Tyler dropped Nina off at her house, The Killer decapitated him off-screen. Nina starts receiving text messages from The Killer, whom she assumed was Tyler. When Nina goes in the hot tub, she does not notice the incoming text she gets that reads "Heads up", then Ghostface throws Tyler's severed head in the hot tub.


  • Tyler: "Officer, she made me do it. She makes me do a lot of things."
  • Tyler: "Wow, you are a mean drunk tonight."


  • Tyler is the first character to be killed in the TV series off-screen and the first to be murdered overall.
  • Like Casey Becker's boyfriend, Steven Orth, he was killed to prove Ghostface's intents.
  • Tyler was the main suspect in Nina's murder up until Emma, Audrey, and Noah found his mutilated head, his name was then cleared and everyone, including Nina's parents, realized that he wasn't the killer, but was a another victim of the killer himself/herself.
  • Ghostface also planted evidence of Tyler's fingerprints on a glass cup in Nina's kitchen, as to implicate him in the murder in order to throw off suspicion.
  • He was apparently an orphan, as it is mentioned that he lived with foster parents.
