Dale Stahl is a budding serial killer/rapist who appeared in Slow Burn in CSI:Miami.


Stahl killed Sandy Willis after getting her in his car, presumably raping her, biting her breasts, and slamming her head into the ground until she died. She was left in the Everglades to be eaten by alligators. Three years later, Stahl lured Julie Bryant out of the same casino as he did with Sandy, but her abusive boyfriend Mike Sheridan followed them to the crime scene and beat Stahl's car with a baseball bat. Julie was thrown out, and Stahl sped off. Sheridan lit a fire in the Glades, which revealed Sandy's decaying remains. Stahl tried to direct the police to Sheridan, but Stahl was matched from his tire tracks and the imprint of his ring. He was arrested and incarcerated for murder and attempted murder.

Modus Operandi[]

Stahl targeted young women at the same casino, driving them out to the Everglades to get them alone. He would presumably rape each woman, bite her breasts, and kill them with blunt force trauma from their head being hit against the ground. Stahl would then leave the women for alligators to eat after they were dead.

Known Victims[]

  • Sandy Willis (presumably raped, bit her breasts, and slammed her head in the ground)
  • Julie Bryant (abducted and attempted to rape and kill; she escaped)
