Eric Witt is the killer of Andi Simmons.


In college, he started writing for the school paper. As he wrote articles, he tended to develop crushes on the women that he had written about. When he started reporting on Andi, he dubbed her "Superstar". Due to his crush on Andi, he would constantly call Andi's phone only to hang up after she answered.

After the big game, he came by her dorm to show her his latest article. As she had just had an argument with her father, she showed disinterest, causing him to accuse her of being ungrateful and tells her he made her, unknowingly echoing her own father's sentiments.

She then kicked him out of her room, telling him that she knew he was the one calling her, calling it pathetic. This was the final straw for Eric, who snapped and strangled her to death.
