Phillip Dowd is a major antagonist in the crime-drama TV series Criminal Minds. He is a narcissistic and paranoid murderer who appears as the main antagonist of the Season 1 episode L.D.S.K.
He is portrayed by Timothy Omundson.
Born in 1971, it's unknown why or how, but Dowd suffered from Narcissistic Personality Disorder and Paranoid Personality Disorder. Possibly as a result to this, he joined the military at the age of 18 and eventually became a US Ranger. Sometime during his time as a US Ranger, Dowd was discharged for conduct-unbecoming. He then would attempt to become a police officer, but was fired after nine months for not telling the police about his discharge. Afterwards, he became an ER nurse in Des Plaines, Illinois. His paranoia and constant need to make himself feel superior made him believe that no one at his work appreciated him. So, in 2005, he started sniping people in non-fatal areas of the body, so he could save them at the hospital.
During L.D.S.K Dowd began to snipe people with an M4 Carbine. He shot two people in a park and then three at a restaurant. Police suspected Officer Scott McCarty and tracked him down to his car. When McCarty came out Dowd shot him in the head, killing him instantly. After this Garcia realized Dowd would be a strong suspect and they raided the hospital he worked in. Philip then put on combat gear and grabbed his M4 and knocked Reid out. After this he forced Hotch to kick Reid repeatedly, this was a ruse to give Spencer a gun. Reid tried to shoot him in the knee but nailed him in the head.
List of Victims
- Henry Sachs - Shot, bled out.
- Scott McCarty - Shot in the head.
- Doug Miller
- Kevin Parks
- Jerry Middleton
- Tim Reilly
- Kate Murray
- Man and Woman
- Despite the name, Dowd doesn't qualify as a serial killer, as he only killed two people. The requirement for a serial killer is three. Also, serial killers intend to kill their victims; out of the two people he killed, Dowd only intended to kill Officer Scott McCarty, Henry Sachs was supposed to be injured and taken to the hospital like the rest, but the ambulance arrived too late.
- He had Hero Syndrome, a condition which the person believes they must save everyone, sometime (like Dowd's case) they resort to injuring people.
