"It's okay, Rosie. Things are gonna get better."

Robert Bremmer was a serial killer and abductor who appeared in Season Six of Criminal Minds.

BackgroundEdit

A happy man on the outside, Bremmer's private life was revealed to involve abusing his stepdaughter, Rose. When his wife Denise found out, she attempted to run away with Rose several times before, but Bremmer always kept catching them in the act. She, either desperately or in a delusional act, tried to poison her daughter to put her out of her misery. Denise eventually became more mentally unstable and, in a last attempt to escape, drove herself and Rose into a lake as a result, killing both of them in the process. Haunted, Bremmer began abducting and torturing women that reminded him of Rosie before killing them. It is also assumed that he raped the women as well. He committed this process for at least a decade. Sometime prior to Out of the Light, he found out about Marcus Talbot, an art teacher who sneaked looks at girls while they were in the bathroom and taking pictures of them, leading him to make a decision to frame him in case local police found out about his killings. This led to the abduction of both Marcy Owens and Angela Proctor, the latter of which happened to be at the scene and was apparently incidentally taken.

Out of the LightEdit

Angela was seen running in the forest, occasionally looking back to see if Bremmer was pursuing her. After a long run through the woods, Angela climbs a slope, manages to get to the top, and starts running again, only to fall off a cliff and land on a road. She is found by a local sheriff and taken to the hospital. Bremmer later digs up the corpse of one of his victims and takes her skull. Angela later dies at the hospital, but not before she tells Reid, "He has Marcy." Bremmer is later seen telling Marcy that Angela is dead, and that she is all alone now. Bremmer is then seen returning from work and proceeds to torture Marcy. After doing so, he comforts her when she starts crying, and when Marcy tries to tell him of her personal life in hopes of getting him to release her, he seizes her hair and tells her to not lie to him. Meanwhile, the BAU suspects Talbot of killing Bremmer's victims and arrest him for questioning. When Reid and Morgan find the corpse of the victim Bremmer dug up earlier, they realize that Talbot is being framed and let him go.

When he realizes that the police are onto him, Bremmer decides to execute his endgame, taking Marcy to his car and driving away towards a lake, intending to drive into the lake to copy the deaths of Rose and Denise. However, there is a roadblock, so Bremmer draws his blade, tells Marcy to be quiet, and prepares to wait for a policeman to investigate the car. However, when the BAU arrive, he abandons his current plan and drives around the roadblock and into the lake. Morgan dives in after the car and attempts to take Marcy out of the car, but Bremmer grabs Marcy's ankle. However, Hotch, having dived in as well, swims up behind Bremmer and shoots him twice in the head at point-blank range, killing him instantly. Marcy nearly dies, but is saved by Morgan, who performed CPR. Talbot is later seen whistling merrily and hanging a photo of Marcy being held captive by Bremmer in his darkroom, while a file with Bremmer's name sits on a table.

Modus OperandiEdit

Bremmer would abduct women who reminded him of Rose in secluded locations and take them to his barn. He would torture them with a sharp instrument, presumably as means of punishment, before fatally stabbing them when he became tired of them. He would later attempt to drown Marcy in a lake. It is mentioned that he also raped several women, including his previous victims, and it is assumed he raped Marcy as well. A personal signature was the odd weapon he used to torture his victims; while it's never named on-screen, he used it when handling stained glass in his work.

ProfileEdit

Bremmer abducted women who reminded him of his stepdaughter, Rose. He kept his victims dehydrated to keep them weak. Like this unsub, 80% of sexual sadists have a dozen or more victims in their past. They led normal lives, but eventually developed God-complexes. They usually have a ruse for abducting their victims as well. It is a theory that if he knew Angela escaped, he may had taken forensic countermeasures to make the authorities think she went in the opposite direction to throw them off.

Known VictimsEdit

  • Unspecified date: Rose Bremmer (his stepdaughter; abused and most likely raped)
  • 2001(?)-2011: At least six unidentified women, including:
    • An unidentified woman (dug her corpse up and buried it in a different location)
    • An unidentified woman (her body was found in 2008)
  • 2011:
    • April 25: Angela Proctor and Marcy Owens (abducted and tortured both):
      • May 1 (escaped): Angela Proctor (presumably incidental; she escaped, but was severely injured after falling off a cliff and died at the hospital)
      • May 4 (rescued): Marcy Owens (presumably raped, then attempted to drown in a lake; was rescued)
    • May 4: Officer Ted (intended to kill at a road block, but had to give up when the BAU arrived)
