Alder's Victims are people who were murdered by Ethan Alder.

History

A serial killer named Ethan Alder went on a spree in Roarke's Junction, Iowa. He used his victims to make skin suits, nipple belts, and pants from human leather. [1] In 1964, Alder was caught in the act and shot. [2] Over three decades later, Alder's ghost was trapped by Special Agent Melanie Ortiz, Peter Venkman, and Kylie Griffin at a construction site on the edge of where his property used to be. All of the ghosts of the victims poured up through the ground and thanked them. They were finally able to rest. 24 hours later, workers returned to the construction site to find a bed of poppies in full bloom - one for each of Alder's victims. [3] It was later pointed out by Ray Stantz that the poppy was the flowers of consolation and eternal rest. [4]
