Who is the killer of Sharp Objects? The top theories, broken down

First things first. I read Sharp Objects . So I know who killed the two young girls in Wind Gap. Or do I? HBO could go another way for the TV adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel and change the identity of the murderer. The creator of the show came out with an encore as rude as Calhoun Day, right? Why not another murderer?

But please do not. There are no spoilers if you've seen Episode 7 of Sharp Objects, but have not read the book. This is a summary of theories for viewers who want to continue to explore the mysteries of the show as the finale approaches on the 26th. I've looked at the theories that prevail online and give some a few thoughts.

John Keene

He was identified as the type who dumped Ann Nash's bike in the lagoon of the pig farm. And now he has been arrested by the police. He also had a pretty weird exchange with Amma in episode 6.

"I like to stay with you, Amma, I just know that I've always had you in mind," he told the young Crellin checking the last episode as she smeared herself with the tanning oil. "It will be your day soon."

It could be said that a suspect who was brought to light two episodes before the finale of the show is never the true murderer. Besides, I think that John really loved his sister and does not see him getting rid of her. On the other hand, Ann Nash had something to do with Natalie. And John looks like the overprotective older brother.

Ashley Wheeler, aka Jackie O

So John Ann could have gotten rid of. Even Natalie could have gotten rid of Ann. The young Keene put a pencil in the eye of a classmate in Philadelphia. John told Camille that he always thought Natalie and Ann were killing each other.

But John's friend Ashley is the one who has real reasons to get rid of his sister. We're pretty sure Natalie did not like Ashley very much. Young Keene might even have taken a piece of Ashley's earlobe out with her teeth.

In episode 4, Ashley finds a bloodstain under John's bed in the carriage house. She does not seem surprised. Could it be from the pig farm? Or one of the two dead girls? She's quick to brush it.

Also, let's not forget that this girl, who always wants to be just a cheerleader, sees murder forever as a kind of popularity badge. "Because it would make him popular," Ashley tells Camille as she explains why she thinks John did not kill the two girls. And John does not really want to be popular, at least not like Ashley

Mommy loved

Forget Norma Bates, Livia Soprano or Betty Draper. Adora Crellin could be the worst mother on TV. She's so bad, she even killed her precious Marian.

"She was ill," Jackie explains as Kansas City asks what happened to Camille's sister. And now we know it was a disease caused by Mama Adora having Munchausen Syndrome a mental disorder that causes people to harm others, get attention and admiration as caregivers.

"Adora had made Marian sick for a long time – perhaps to get attention, but also to keep her sweet innocent angel child weak and dependent (as opposed to the" willing "Camille – to which I am ready) bet adora as a species Rival for Marian affection), "Reddit user maddiez0 on a subreddit full of theory about Adora's alleged poisoning of Marian before episode 7 made this storyline clear.

And if Adora could kill Marian and also make Amma sick, she might as well have killed her two mentees if she felt they were not paying her the devotion she deserved. We're talking about a woman who told her older daughter – who cuts herself – that she never loved her. And that's far from the worst thing she has done.

On the other hand, is not that too obvious? In Episode 2, a boy named James Capisi says he saw a woman in white with Natalie Keene. In the same episode we see Adora look like this:

Not very subtle.


When Adora gets points for the worst TV mother, Amma earns mention as the scariest, cruelest teen on the small screen, though it's hard not to regret her now. I saw the twisted motherhood she endured. She harasses and taunts her older sister before the detective she thinks might be Camille's love interest. She puts chewing gum in Camilles hair. She even forces her sister to party and take drugs with her. She throws a tantrum because a piece of furniture in her dollhouse does not match her mother's real home. "We do not want more little girls to show up without teeth," she tells John Keene without a hint of shame or fear.

Amma could have just decided to get rid of Natalie and Ann because she was jealous of all the attention the Adora girls got.

"We need to talk about your daughters," Chief Vickery Adora says early on the show. "One of them is dangerous and the other is in danger." It could be interpreted that Camille is a journalist who could pose a threat to her reporting, and Amma is the same age as the two victims. But what if he meant it the other way?

Even Marian's ghost seems to warn Camille when her sister falls asleep next to Amma: "It's not safe for you here."

But would Amma be strong enough to prick her schoolmate's teeth with household tongs, just as the killer did? We also saw her raw, sensible side with Camille. She just seems to be like a teenager who needs to be loved for what she is, as opposed to what she looks like or what she does.


No, she can not technically be the Windgap killer was not in Wind Gap when the first murder was committed and the second girl disappeared. But that does not mean she hides no killer in it.

"My demons are not nearly fought, they are easily healed," she tells her good friend and protector Jackie. One of her demons could be the death of her rehab roommate Alice.

So far, the show has been playing edit tricks on what Camille remembers. We only saw parts of it. There is no way to know if her memories are correct. She looks like hallucinations. Besides, she is half drunk half the time.

What if she was the one who really poisoned Alice, who mirrored her mother's crime – in case Adora really killed Marian? She could have made herself believe that Alice committed suicide with the cleaning product, while it was she who poisoned her.

Kirk Lacey

Amma's scary drama teacher is also the person who raped Camille so many years ago. And he would have known both dead girls.

Even after his botched attempt to apologize to Camille, he appears to be the most obvious choice on this list. And obviously, television does not make a good name. Nor was there any sexual violence against Ann or Natalie, and that might not be Mr. Lacey's style.

Chief Vickery

We do not know who Camilla's father is. And Adora and Chief Vickery have more than just friendly relationships. Would it surprise someone if he were Camilla's biological father? It certainly would not surprise reddit users KetoTeacher.

Maybe Natalie and Ann found out about it while Adora looked after her. The girls may have tried to blackmail the couple. I can see the policeman helping her former lover get rid of the nuisance. He could even have taken care of it himself.

Everything to avoid the slightest departure from this eternal morning routine of coffee, eggs, bacon, the newspaper, and the farewell of his wife before he went to the police station.

Alan Crellin

You can not be married to Adora and be really healthy. Alan is a tormented soul. And nobody seems to remember or care that Marian was his daughter too. Ann and Natalie could have upset him. Another way for Adora to pay attention to her suffering husband.

Why should Alan kill two girls as old as his Amma? (Besides that, maybe it's not really his.) Some fans theorize that Amma could actually be the daughter of Camille, who could have gotten pregnant after she was raped in the forest and Adora decided to raise the child as she and Alan 19659005] First published on Aug. 18 at 6 pm PT
