Criminal Minds Wiki

 This list covers all minor criminals mentioned in Season Ten.


Steven Parkett's unnamed father

The schizophrenic father of serial killer Steven Parkett, his wife died birthing their son, something which presumably (it's unspecified if he was before) drove him to alcoholism and to abuse his son. His status is currently unknown.


A man who took photos of underage girls and distributing them as child pornography. His criminal activities caught the attention of the FBI, who eventually tracked him down and sent in an undercover Kate to lure him out. After dating him online for three months, she meets up with him at a bar, and the two go to his room as part of a deal they made: for him to show the pictures he took of the girls. Now with proof, Kate has Mark arrested.


A case in upstate New York that Kate investigated. Absolutely nothing is known about the offender outside of his (presumed) surname. Rossi mentions he looked beaten during his arrest, and that the case must not have been "easy" for Kate, implying some sort of traumatizing detail.

Unnamed intruder

An offender who breached a Port Authority station and assaulted Kate for unknown reasons. He was presumably arrested immediately afterward.

Human trafficking ring clients

At least three men who were clients of a human trafficking ring. One of them purchased a woman who was abducted by Alex Zorgen, Donna Mangold, and Kyle Zorgen at the end of the episode. In the season finale episode The Hunt, more clients are introduced, where it is revealed some of them are women and even families.


Raymond Leu

The father of serial killer Justin Leu, Raymond entered a downward spiral of alcoholism after his wife died of cancer around 1983. He subsequently became a strict and abusive father, beating them whenever they got a grade less than an A and locking them in a shed for hours at a time. Justin's older brother Todd, unable to cope with the abuse anymore, committed suicide by overdosing on pills in 1988. This led to Justin being taken away from Raymond. He later died from cardiac arrest on August 10, 2014. It's unknown if he was ever convicted of the abuse or Todd's death. Regardless, his actions and his death were the trigger for Justin's psychosis and subsequent serial killings.

Unnamed roadside serial rapist

A serial rapist who would bump his car into those of his victims while on the road, goading them to pull over to check the damage. Once they did so, he would rape them beside the road, with other motorists driving past them without noticing. Kate investigated the case.

If the Shoe Fits

Edward Dunbar

The father of future serial killer Claire Dunbar. He was a pedophile who presumably sexually abused, among other victims, his own daughter. He later abandoned her as a teenager and then went on to be arrested for sexually assaulting two girls in 2002. He then died three years later of a heart attack. While he wasn't abusing her, he would read her bedtime stories of fairy-tales, which would later catalyze her to commit her murders. He wasn't initially found by the BAU due to him changing his surname to Banner and making his wife's maiden name, Rawley, his middle name prior to his arrest.

Boxed In

Sam Bidwell

The father of abductor and indirect killer John David Bidwell, Sam was an alcoholic and religious fanatic who abused his wife Mary and their son. He never let his son go trick or treating on Halloween and always dominated his wife. In 2002, Bidwell went out on Halloween and egged a house. When Sam found out, he locked Bidwell in a trunk and threatened to not release him until next Halloween. When Mary tried to save Bidwell, Sam attacked her and she bludgeoned him to death with a fire poker. Mary and Bidwell buried Sam's body at his father's property where it would remain until it was discovered by the BAU in 2014.

Rodney Tanner

A pedophile who would take photos of young boys. He was arrested in 2013 and incarcerated for abducting a boy named Tommy Wilcox (one of the boys he photographed) and holding him captive before leaving him for dead. Seeking attention, Tanner confessed to the crime but was eventually exonerated the following year by Morgan and Kate when another boy is found and the BAU are called in to investigate. They tell him that he will be re-sentenced and released into the general population of the prison he was sent to, much to his horror.


Charles Lorne

A sporting goods store security guard at a shopping mall who posted an inappropriate image of teenager Tara Harris on social media. The image was illegally obtained from surveillance footage. When Tara was brutally murdered by William Pratt, Charles was considered a suspect after his photo was found. Though he was exonerated, he was presumably prosecuted for the image he obtained.

The Boys of Sudworth Place

Sean Wallace

A gang member who was Jack Westbrook's client. He was accused of breaking and entering.

Frank Holden

The father of future budding serial killer Peter Folkmore, who was abusive towards his wife and Peter's mother Karen. The abuse caught the attention of the police, although they didn't have any conclusive proof tying him to Karen's injuries.

In shock, he then committed suicide by shooting himself in the head.

Several inmates at the Reagan Federal Penitentiary who assisted Weeks in committing a prison riot. After they were let out of their cells by Dale Shavers, they shanked a prison guard to death and then raided an interrogation room holding Morgan, Kate, and Officer Tom Polinsky. They brutally assaulted Morgan and Kate, incapacitating them, while one of them shanked and wounded Polinsky. They then took the three of them to the prison cafeteria, where they intended to kill them. One of the inmates, Don Black, took a sexual interest in Kate and tried to rape her before deciding to beat Polinsky when he began to lose too much blood. The inmate was shot and killed by a police sniper, while the others are arrested by a SWAT team.

Breath Play

The Murphy's unnamed neighbor

A man who lived with his wife as the neighbors of the Murphy family. One day sometime around 1990, the man engaged in erotic asphyxiation with his wife. However, the act went terribly wrong when the man accidentally strangled his wife to death in the act. A then twelve-year old Patrick Murphy witnessed this and was drastically affected by it, causing erotic asphyxiation to become his fetish, and ultimately caused him to become a serial killer. The neighbor was presumably charged and incarcerated for manslaughter afterwards.

Later on, Yudin turns on Azarof and kills him for abusing and raping their maid Fana Kedibe, who he was in love with, and then arrives where Sophie is hidden to kill her. However, Dinah tells the FBI where she is being kept, and after Sophie is rescued, Yudin flees and remains at large.
