Frank Dodd was the son of Henrietta Dodd, and a deputy sheriff in Castle Rock, Maine. He was featured in the novel The Dead Zone. He was involved in an investigation of several rape-stranglings of various women in the town for a number of years, assisting the Sheriff, George Bannerman. After a nine-year-old girl was found, Bannerman turned in desperation to a local psychic, Johnny Smith, to assist with the matter if possible. Smith met with Bannerman and after examining the crime scene and some evidence, he discovered that Dodd was responsible. Convincing a reluctant Bannerman to go question Dodd about it, they headed to his house in the middle of the night. Dodd was found in an upstairs bathroom, having slashed his throat. Around his neck was a sign lettered in lipstick: I CONFESS.
