Llanview’s latest bad guy, Eddie Ford (John Wesley Shipp) is gone but not forgotten. Eddie’s death unleashed a huge murder mystery on ‘One Life to Live’ just in time for the New Year.
Even though Eddie was only in town briefly, he sure left an impact on our favorite Llanview residents. So who hated Eddie enough to want him dead?
Lets take a look at some likely suspects:
Robert (Bobby) Ford hated his father for tormenting him and his brother James. He also has a block of time he can’t account for on the night of the murder.
Nate Salinger wasn’t too keen on his dad either. According to a witness, Nate was seen at Eddie’s hotel on the night of the murder. And Nate didn’t come home the night of the murder either.
Inez Salinger was desperate to rid herself of Eddie. The two had a violent past. Inez hated Eddie and wanted to free her sons of their abusive father. Inez drugged Bo on the night of the murder. She could have easily headed to Eddie’s hotel and killed him.
Nora Buchanan was another of Eddie’s victims. Eddie abducted, terrorized, and threatened to rape Nora. Where was she after the car accident with Rex? Nora claims not to remember so she too could have headed back to the hotel and shot Eddie.
Clint Buchanan hired Eddie to kidnap Nora. Perhaps he feared that Eddie would sell him out to Bo or worse. Killing Eddie falls right in line with all the horrible things Clint’s done lately.
Todd Manning’s cuff link was found at the scene of the crime. Todd knew that Eddie had disrespected Dani and Starr. He also knew Eddie had physically abused James. Todd is certainly capable of committing murder. Would Todd risk his new life with Tea and Dani and commit such a crime?
