Biography[edit | edit source]

David Chambers was a serial killer who, by his own account, was affected by this particular mental malignancy since birth. He targeted young women, whom he would capture and bring back to a soundproofed bedroom in his home.

Outside of this particular murderous proclivity, David Chambers was a family man who had a wife and a daughter named Donna. David was always careful to keep this private side of his life a secret from his wife and daughter.

One evening in 1980, Donna Chambers - now an adult, returned home to find her father entering the house with a woman who was clearly not her mother. After waiting a few minutes, she entered the house calling out her father's name. She burst into the bedroom to find the woman bound to the bed and suffering from severe mutilation and lacerations. David entered the room, surprised to see his daughter. He confessed that he had always been a killer and never wanted Donna to discover his secret. Seeing the disgust and horror on his daughter's face, David picked up a knife and plunged it into his neck, killing himself. [2]

Years later, in 1984, Donna Chambers saw a vision of her father at Camp Redwood.

Notes & Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Final fate: Suicide by stabbing himself in the neck with a knife.
  • Actor Tim Russ is best known for his portrayal of Science Officer Tuvok on the science fiction television series Star Trek: Voyager. Tuvok would greatly disapprove of David's actions in this episode. They are simply not logical.
