Amber Freeman murdered Dewey Riley.
Richie and Amber briefly explained that they met online after bonding over their love for the “Stab” franchise, and they capitalized on the fact that Amber was best friends with Tara Carpenter.
Richie might’ve been the one masterminding their whole bloodthirsty scheme, but Amber got her hands dirty too — in fact, she’s the one who brutally kills iconic former-sheriff Dewey Riley (David Arquette) in the hospital.
Everyone is on the chopping block in the “Scream” franchise, but Dewey’s days were always numbered because of just how many injuries he sustained over the years. His death is heartbreaking for Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) because they got together at the end of “Scream 2.”
Although, thankfully, Gale and Sidney managed to get some revenge on Amber in a brawl by setting her on fire, before Tara put her down for good with a gunshot to the head.
It’ll be interesting to see how Gale deals with her grief in “Scream 6,” and whether it’s a sign that she might be next.
