Gene Marshall was arsonist, who was killed by Dexter some time before events which took place on Season 1. When the Ice truck killer had brought back from ocean Valerie Castillo, Dexter's last victim, which resulted in police investigation, Dexter decided to eliminate any evidence that might implicate him. He threw his instruments in ocean and was about to do the same to his slides. Before doing that Dexter went through his collection of blood slides and remembered some of his victims. Gene was second victim that Dexter remembered. Like most of Dexter's victims Gene was wrapped in plastic wrap and had scar over his right cheek. Dexter had also placed bunch of candles around Gene. Before his death Gene asked Dexter if he knew how it felt to see anyone burn alive.
