Johnny Winter was a victim of the Origami Killer.
Johnny was the only son of Lauren Winter and her abusive husband. He was aware that his mother was a prostitute, though she never had any clients over when he was in the house. In the "Sleazy Place" chapter, she tells Scott Shelby that he would often stand up for her if other children from the neighborhood ridiculed him about her. Johnny was presumably abducted sometime in November 2010 and was found dead in a wasteland a few days later.
- He shares his name with the blues guitarist, Johnny Winter.
