Edward Hill is a major antagonist in the crime-drama TV series Criminal Minds. He is a vengeful mass poisoner who appears as the main antagonist of the Season 1 episode Poison.
He is portrayed by Nick Jameson.
Edward Hill lived in New Jersey and was the founder of a company called Palmay Cosmetics. However, another company called Hitchcock Pharmaceuticals bought out Hill's company and he ended up becoming one of their staff. Hill spent years working for the company, costing him his wife, who divorced him and took their children. In the present year, Hitchcock Pharmaceuticals cut Hill's salary, and when Hill had finally made a breakthrough on a new medicine, Hitchcock had stolen his idea and patented it. Feeling like he had lost it all, Hill desperately sought vengeance against the company and began planning.
In 2005, Hill, with the help of an accomplice Lynn Dempsey, poisons a jar of candies and a stack of envelopes with LSD and Rohypnol, at a bank that had screwed him over. As a result, eight people are poisoned, which brings the attention of the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit. Hill's reasons for doing this was to test the poison delivery system for his real target, a Hitchcock Pharmaceuticals camping trip with all the higher ups. After a successful test run, Hill poisons his accomplice to silence her, then poisons envelopes at the camping trip. The BAU eventually find him, arrest him, and interrogate him. But Hill says he poisoned the punch at a party at Hitchcock Pharmaceuticals. A team is sent to the party to alert the attendees and while his interrogators are distracted, Hill commits suicide through poisoning. Unlucky for him, the BAU discovers the ruse and eventually gets to the camping trip, giving the Hitchcock Pharmaceuticals managerial staff an antidote, saving their lives.
