Biography of Dean Phillip Carter

Dean Phillip Carter was born on August 30, 1955, in Nome, Alaska. He was the illegitimate son of a woman who was half Eskimo. He was adopted by a former police officer and fire chief from Nome. At the age of 12, Carter was charged with a delinquency and sent to a youth detention camp, from which he attempted to escape at least three times. Later, he ended up in a shelter. He continued down a criminal path and by the ages of 14-15, he became a hardened robber. He later found himself in prison in Oregon for car theft, and then in Alaska for burglary.

In 1980, Carter was hired as part of the team to prepare for the Tanana Chiefs Conference in Fairbanks, Alaska. The conference was mainly funded by a non-profit organization operating under the project name 'Video Center.' Carter worked as a production assistant and operator. During his time at 'Video Center,' he was on probation for cocaine possession. He had already served four years in an Oregon state prison for this crime.

Carter married a receptionist from 'Video Center,' who gave birth to twin sons in 1981. Dean worked at KTUU-TV in Anchorage, Alaska, and later became a freelance operator in Seattle in the early 1980s. In one of his letters, Carter assures that he is innocent of the women's murders. However, records from the California Supreme Court in his appeal report show that weak fingerprints were found in the home of one of his victims, and there is also a video of him emptying another victim's bank account. Additionally, the car he stole from his first victim was found one block away from another victim's house. After this, Carter stole the car of his last victim and was arrested in Arizona while driving the stolen vehicle. Upon search, Carter was found with items from each victim's home. He was also found guilty of raping two women before their murders.

Dean Carter spends his days in San Quentin, California, trying to shed light on the American justice system and life on death row. He has connected with many individuals, including students, through his letters and his column on the website 'Deadman Talkin.' This website exists thanks to one of Carter's friends.
