    Current: Crime Lord (died)
    Past: Crime Lord


    André DiMera came to Salem at Stefano's bidding in 1983 in order to have plastic surgery and frame Roman for murders of Salemites.

    Andre murdered Daisy Hawkins on the pier in front of Marlena Brady (now Black) and Sandy Horton. Because he appeared to be Roman, Roman was sent to jail for the murder.

    In the meantime, Tony was chained up in Andre's apartment while all of this was going on. Anna soon found him when snooping through 'Tony's' things. She too was taken captive until Roman managed to set Tony and Anna free. Tony escaped and returned to Stefano's island, where they planned more dastardly deeds!

    Most remembered was the plane ride to the photo shoot in 1984, in Haiti. Andre and Stefano planned it so that the plane would take Salemites to their secret island instead of Haiti. The plane crashed and Daphne DiMera passed away. Later, Andre died in quicksand... or so we thought. Andre of course didn't die, and wound up back in Salem with Stefano in 2007, posing once again as Tony! Since then, he has attempted murder on EJ, Sami, but Anna DiMera Brady figured out that he was an impostor. Since, Andre has admitted to keeping Tony on an island and told Bo that the map to the island is on Bart's back!

    Tony then fell off the rooftop of a building and is now in the hospital. Died a few days later.
