In 2003, teenager Lily Winters met mentally unstable internet predator Kevin in an on-line chat room. Even though Kevin was much older than Lily, the two started dating and Kevin often persuaded Lily to skip school to hang out with him at his place. He eventually convinced her to have sex with him. The statutory rape resulted in Kevin giving Lily chlamydia, a common sexually transmitted disease.
Colleen Carlton, Lily's best friend, hated Kevin and Lily's relationship and often told Kevin how she felt. In return, Kevin attempted to kill Colleen by locking her in a refrigerator at local restaurant, Gina's, and then set it on fire. He was never found guilty for these crimes.
However, in 2004, while working as a bookkeeper at Marilyn's, Kevin was wrongly accused of electrocuting Brittany Hodges. Desperate to avoid jail time, Kevin turned to half brother, Michael Baldwin, for help. They were soon joined by their mother, Gloria, after Kevin ran away back home to Detroit fearing he would be sent to jail. Gloria decided to return with Kevin and Michael after Michael made a deal with the Genoa City police. Later, Kevin was sent to prison, where he was beaten to a pulp by cellmates because they knew he committed statutory rape.

Kevin eventually became very happy for Michael and Lauren.
Later, Kevin befriended Daniel Romalotti who had just returned to Genoa City from boarding school. To help boost Kevin's reputation, Daniel hired a guy named Alex to attack Lily so Kevin could rescue her and regain his good reputation.

Summer starts hyperventilating and Abby, Noah, and Fen try to calm her down. Courtney says Summer couldn't have gotten Austin into the closet, so Kevin implies that someone may have helped her. Fen snaps at his uncle, and Mariah tells Fen not to get mad at Kevin when this is his fault for drugging them.
Summer takes Abby out of the room to calm her down, and Kevin scolds Fen for using drugs again. Courtney says she has to report everything that she hears, but Kevin and Noah say they won't testify about what Summer said. Courtney tells them to stop it, and says that even though Summer's confession was made under duress; she still has to report it. Kevin and Mariah make up a story about Austin slipping and hitting his head. Courtney is dismayed that they want to cover up Austin's death. Mariah says Summer doesn't deserve to go to jail. Courtney is adamant that they be honest, so Mariah asks Courtney if she wants to tell the police that there was a homicide, and know one remembers what happened because Fen drugged them. Summer finds the murder weapon, says she did it, and gets arrested. Mariah asks Courtney how that version works out for her. Courtney says what they are doing is a felony, and asks Noah to back her up; but Noah sides with Mariah, Kevin, and Fen. Courtney says they could get caught and then all of them would go to prison. Kevin suggests that she use her expertise to cover it up. Noah, Kevin, Mariah, and Fen all agree to the cover up; but Courtney says they are making a mistake. Noah apologizes to Courtney, and she cries that if she does this then she is no better than the dirty cops that think they are above the law. Noah says he is asking Courtney to save his sister because she can't save herself, so Courtney reluctantly agrees to help them.
Kevin and Noah lift Austin's body, so there is no evidence. Courtney says they have to make sure the angle of the blow makes sense, and says they are going to do this right. Mariah asks Abby to take care of Summer. Kevin and Noah lay Austin on his side, with his injury laying on a rock, so it looks like he slipped and hit his head on the rock. After getting their official story straight, Fen goes to set up the cover up and discovers that Austin's body is gone. Summer is hopeful that Austin may still be alive. Noah goes to look for Austin, and the police arrive and ask what happened. Kevin covers and says he fell off the ladder, but he is fine. They say Austin went to look for help and never came back. The group is taken back to Genoa City where they give statements. Noah leaves after hearing about a collapse at the Underground. Mariah and Fen sit with Summer in the interrogation room. Summer is panicking and Mariah tells Fen to get Summer under control because she isn't going down for something she didn't do. Summer continues to freak out, and Mariah loses her patience with Summer. She tells Summer that this isn't just about her anymore, and that they are all in trouble if the truth comes out. Summer shoots back that this was Mariah's idea, and that she didn't ask her to do this. Mariah scoffs that she did this for Austin, and not for Summer. Paul comes in and announces that Austin has been located and that he is fine.
Kyle Abbott Returns
Paul takes Mariah, Kevin, and Summer out by where the Abbott Cabin is. They see someone, wrapped in a blanket coming towards them. Summer runs to the figure only to discover that it is Kyle. Paul asks Kyle what he is doing out there, and Kyle says that his car stalled. Mariah and Kevin immediately wonder if Kyle had been the one who moved Austin's body, and even wonder if he had been the one who murdered Austin. Summer is appalled at the idea, but Mariah and Kevin want to investigate Kyle's car. They find a piece of fabric sticking out from the trunk. Mariah and Kevin want to open the trunk, but Summer is against the idea. Noah arrives, and agrees with Mariah and Kevin on opening the trunk. Mariah procures Kyle's keys and unlocks the trunk.
In Kyle's trunk, they find a flashlight and first aid kit. Mariah admits she expected to find Austin's body instead, and Summer goes off on Mariah for thinking the worst of Kyle. Mariah tries to explain what she meant, but Summer carries on, and Mariah angrily tells Summer that they are on the same side. Kevin finds a bloody cloth in the trunk, and Noah suggests they have Courtney look at it. Mariah doesn't trust Courtney, and is worried she would sell them out. They head to the hospital to confront Kyle about what they found. Abby wonders why Kyle would cover this up, and Mariah says there is no telling what someone would do to protect the person they love. Kyle comes into the room, and Noah says he remembers seeing Kyle outside of the Abbott cabin, and Kyle denies that he was there. Kevin asks about the bloody cloth, and Kyle says he had a boxing match before he came home. Kyle asks why does he feel like he is being accused of something, and then asks what really happened to Austin.
Abby thinks they should tell Kyle, but Mariah says that too many people already know. An officer comes by to talk to Summer, and while that is happening out of the room, the group tells Kyle how they think Summer killed Austin, and they staged it to look like an accident. Summer comes back and says that Austin's body was found in a wrecked car. Abby wonders if Austin could have survived, and died by crashing an abandoned car; but Mariah brings up that Austin had no pulse. Summer is asked to identify the body, and the group stays in the waiting room. After Summer identifies Austin's body, she heads to the chapel to mourn him. As the group wonders if Austin had anyone else who cared about him, Mariah realizes Abby had real feelings for Austin. After Kyle leaves to check on Summer, Mariah says that she doesn't trust Kyle, and Abby says that's because she doesn't know him; Mariah adds that she doesn't trust Abby either. Noah asks Kevin if he can discreetly get the blood on the rag analyzed, and Kevin says that he can.
Kevin, Mariah, and Noah share their suspicions about Kyle with Abby. Abby can't believe Kyle would be an accomplice to murder, but Noah says he is hiding something. The four head over to Summer's place while she is watching a video of Austin made of her and Summer. After Summer left the room in the video, Austin turn to the camera said he owes Summer an apology. Austin went on to say how he was depressed, and how he needed to tell Summer something. Summer had interrupted him before he could make his confession, Kevin noticed the way Mariah stared at Abby and took her aside to ask what was going on. Mariah avoided answering Kevin, but he asked her again when everyone had left the room. Mariah told Kevin that she doesn't think Austin was depressed in that video, and that he was instead guilty. Kevin asked about what, but before Mariah could tell him, the video switched to Austin and Abby joking around at Crimson Lights. Summer came back and was wondering why Austin had a video of Abby on his laptop. Noah said Austin was working on a documentary about corporate titans. Summer said she doesn't remember, which made her feel even worse. Kevin got a text from his contact, who got the blood on the towel analyzed. Kevin and Mariah went to the station where they learned that Kyle lied when he said the blood on the towel was his; it was Austin's blood.
Courtney comes into the room and Mariah and Kevin tell her the blood on Kyle's towel is Austin's. Kevin shares his theory that Kyle killed Austin, and Courtney says that Kyle could have put Austin's body in the armoire, but wonders why Kyle wouldn't just leave with Austin's body. Kevin says maybe he wanted them to find the body. They decide to leave for Austin's memorial, but Mariah stays behind. Kevin listens as Mariah talks about how her friendship with Austin and how she misses him. As Kevin and Mariah head out, Kevin sees Nikki and Neil at the station, and wonders what happened. Neil tells Kevin that Christine was hit, and Kevin wonders about the baby. Kevin checks on Christine's status before heading to the memorial. Kevin arrives as Courtney and Noah are talking about Kyle. Noah leaves to get Austin's laptop and asks them to keep Kyle at the church till he gets back. Kevin wonders if they have been covering for the wrong person. The memorial begins, and Nick and Mariah talk about Austin. Summer gets on the stand and talks about Austin and how her family welcomed him. She then stops and accuses Abby of sleeping with Austin.
The anonymous messages
Abby runs out of the church in tears, and Mariah accuses Kyle of knowing about the affair. Summer asks Kyle if he knew, and he reluctantly admits he did. Summer asks who else knew, and guesses that Mariah knew because of her and Abby's private talk at the cabin, and that Kevin knew as well. Summer continues to have a meltdown, and Jack and Phyllis order everyone out of the church. Outside, Mariah, Kevin, and Courtney continue to accuse Kyle of Austin's murder. Kyle snaps that they don't even know who they are protecting, and that they could be protecting themselves.
Mariah, Kevin, Kyle, and Courtney storm into the Abbot cabin and accuse Abby of Austin's murder. Abby says she didn't do it, and says that they all have as much motive as she did. Abby says Mariah could of been jealous that Austin chose to cheat with her instead of Mariah. She turns to Kyle and says he could have done it because he wants Summer for himself, or that Kevin could killed Austin because he was jealous of Mariah and Austin's friendship. Abby opens the armoire and the group sees that a message reading "I know what happened here" is written on the mirror. They wonder who could have wrote it, and Courtney takes a picture of it. Summer and Noah go to the Abbott Cabin where Kyle, Mariah, Kevin, and Courtney are. Courtney tells Summer that she didn't kill Austin, and Kevin and Noah say the blood on the towel was Austin's. Kyle explains that he punched Austin, but Mariah and Noah are still skeptic because he lied about the blood being Austin's and also lied about being in town. Kyle's explains that he wanted solid proof before he told Summer about the affair. Abby comes out of the back room, and Summer charges at Abby. Noah holds her back, and Abby runs out of the cabin holds her back and Abby runs out of the cabin. Kevin and Courtney show up for work and tell Noah and Mariah they might as well leave since they aren't getting anywhere. Noah wonders what they should do. Mariah figures the person who wrote the note must have known they wouldn't tell anyone. Noah figures that means the person knows them pretty well, and Kevin wonders how well they know this person.
Summer asks everyone to meet her at the Abbott cabin, and shows them the message on her mirror, saying "I know what you did". Mariah and Summer both continue to accuse Abby of lying, and she leaves in frustration. Kyle goes after Abby, and the group continues to wonder who is watching them, and leaving the messages. Noah thinks it is convient that Fen left town shortly after Austin's death. Kevin says he has school, and is trying to get his life back in order. Mariah asks if drugging them part of his rehab program. Summer says she knows, and Fen he wouldn't do it. Mariah says she also thought she knew Austin, and is bad judge of character when it comes to men. Summer and Mariah start fighting about Austin, and accusing each other of writing the messages. It escalates, and Kevin and Noah have to pull them apart. Courtney says they should go to the police, but Mariah, Kevin, and Noah are against the idea. Mariah says she isn't going to jail to protect Summer, and Summer says that she never asked for her help. Mariah snaps that she would turn her in if she could, and Kevin tells them to shut up. Kevin shares his theory that someone has been planning this set up for a long time, and Summer wonders who would want to kill Austin. Suddenly, the group hears a noise and rushes out to hear the sound of someone running away. Summer feels they should go to the police, and Mariah says she is the reason she they didn't to to the police. Summer says she doesn't think she killed Austin anymore, and tells them what she remembered. Despite Kevin and Mariah's objections, the others leave to go and tell the police while Mariah and Kevin stay behind.
Kevin decrypts a file on Austin's computer, where he spoke with such hatred about the Newman and Abbott families and promised to reveal all about them. The group figures that someone from the Newman or Abbott families could have had Austin killed. Kyle says Jack isn't a murderer, and Summer says Victor wouldn't do something so horrible, and they don't know him. Mariah points out that Victor hired her to gaslight a mentally ill woman (Sharon), so she knows him pretty well. Mariah continues to taunt Summer about how she didn't really know Austin, and Summer says Mariah will never know the kind of love she and Austin had. They soon find out from Stitch that Abby had told him all the details of Austin's death. Kevin questions Stitch, and he is offended by the idea that they think he had something to do with Austin's death. Stitch says he didn't really know Austin other than when Austin asked to interview him, and Stitch said no. Kevin later finds out that was a lie, and finds a file of Austin trying to interview Stitch.
Mariah and Kevin are at Sharon's looking for her phone charger. Mariah continues to insult Abby, and Kevin asks if she still hates Abby because she blames her for stealing Tyler from her. Mariah isn't sure, but admits that she is jealous because Abby is rich, smart, funny, fearless. Kevin tells Mariah says is all of those; except rich, and tells Mariah that Abby has nothing on her. Mariah disagrees and guys think go for the rich good looking girls. Kevin says Mariah has substance and cares about others. He tells her that even though she won't admit it, he knows she is just trying to protect Summer. Kevin tells Mariah without her he would be out of his mind. Mariah laments that hanging out with her hasn't stopped Kevin from breaking the law and Kevin says there is no one else he would rather face jail time. Kevin suggests getting a phone charger, that was confiscated, at the station. Mariah jokes that they get away with covering a murder, but get caught taking a phone charger. Kevin says Platro Sphere outsmarts the good and the bad guys. Mariah says he almost makes breaking the law sound noble, and says Kevin is a fun person to get in trouble with.

He goes back to Crimson Lights where he learns Sharon had tried to take Austin's computer because she did an interview with him that she didn't want anyone else to know about.
Mariah and Noah are annoyed at Summer's persistence that Sharon is guilty of murdering Austin. Mariah accuses Summer of wanting Sharon to be guilty and says that Sharon could have told Austin something that Victor or Nick didn't want getting out and they could have hired someone to kill Austin. After talking to Dylan, Noah comes back and is even more worried that Sharon is guilty. Mariah says that once they find the interview, they can prove Sharon is innocent, but Noah is worried that it could make Sharon look even more guilty. Noah leaves after getting a call from Dylan about Sharon, and Kevin finally decrypts Sharon's interview. In it, Sharon says that Nick did something so horrible that he would be in prison if Victor hadn't covered up. Summer refuses to believe it and accuses Sharon of lying. Noah comes back and says Sharon got the same lipstick message they did. Summer suggests Sharon wrote it and argues with Noah and Mariah about it. Kyle speaks up and admits he wrote the message on Sharon's mirror. Mariah and Noah are furious with Kyle for playing with Sharon's mind, and he explains he did it to ferret Sharon out and get her to confess. Noah punches Kyle and is restrained by Kevin. Noah insists that Sharon is innocent, but Summer says they found evidence that points to Sharon. Mariah and Kevin add that the evidence could also point to Victor or Nick.
Kevin finds a video of Jack in Chancellor Park on Austin's computer. He convinces Courtney to help him back into the system, but triggers the alarm. Paul demands to know what they are doing. Kevin lies and says he was trying to use the computer for personal reasons, and that Courtney tried to stop him. Paul demands to know what Kevin was doing, and Kevin says he can't tell him, so Paul suspends Kevin.

Kevin goes to tell Paul this, who tells Kevin that hey have evidence that puts Sharon at Austin's apartment during the time someone deleted the files from Austin's computer. Kevin tells the group this, reaffirming Summer, Kyle, and Abby's belief that Sharon is guilty. Kevin realizes that the Deli in the video is closed at the time Sharon was supposedly at the apartment, which means the time stamp could have been faked.
Sharon is arrested when she breaks her house arrest by attending the reopening of the Underground. Mariah tells Kevin that Sharon and her are their own worst enemy, and urges him to run. Kevin tells Mariah he isn't going anywhere. The GCPD soon realize that they have no concrete evidence against Sharon, and drop the charges. The group decides that maybe it is over and the killer won't come after them anymore. In private, Mariah tells Kevin she knows him well enough to know when he is lying, and that he believes they aren't out of danger. Kevin tells Mariah he believes she thinks the same way. The group then get a text message to meet at the cabin.
Kevin, Noah, and Kyle go to the cabin and are soon joined by Stitch. Fen shows up, and reveals he sent the texts. He reveals that he has been in contact with the killer, and everyone is angry that he kept it a secret. Fen reveals he was blackmailed into drugging them after he hacked into the school's database and changed his grade to a passing one. Paul shows up and Fen tells him everything. He also gives Paul the envelope that the drug came in. Kevin tried to comfort his nephew, but Fen blames himself for Austin and Courtney's death.
Paul tells the group that the DNA on the envelope is a match to an anonymous drug lord named Marco Anacelli. The group wonders why a drug lord would kill Austin when Paul tells them that their isn't enough evidence to prove Marco is the killer, and Kevin wonders if the FBI is helping Marco. He hacks into the FBI database and finds that Tobias Gray, a former Jabot, is a possible suspect. Kevin convinces a reluctant Mariah to help him break into Tobias' apartment. There, they find evidence that Tobias is the killer and set up Sharon.
Kevin still has his doubts and continues to look for the killer. He leaks information on GC Buzz that Tobias wasn't the killer. Kevin is arrested, but the killer responds to Kevin's post, meaning he was right. While waiting for his arraignment, Kevin talks with Summer, Kyle, Abby, and Mariah at the Underground, and suggests they make a documentary about the killings to put more pressure on the police. Everyone refuses and Mariah reveals to Kevin that she was the one who posted the response on GC Buzz to get him out of trouble. Mariah asks Kevin to help her, but he says that they have probably already got her IP address. He suggests Mariah confess, and says Michael can get the charges dropped against her. Mariah doesn't believe it will work for her, and suggests she and Kevin run away together.
As Mariah leaves the Underground, Paul and Harding arrive and take her and Kevin down to the station. Paul finally fills Kevin and Mariah in on his plan to lure the killer into a false sense of security. Kevin tells Paul he has to out more pressure on the killer. Harding prepares to arrest Mariah, but Paul calls him into the other room. Alone, Kevin asks Mariah if she was really going to run. Mariah says she would have, but she would have missed Kevin. Paul and Harding come back and tell Kevin and Mariah they are free to go, but warns them not to interfere with the investigation anymore.
Kevin and Mariah back off until they realize that Noah's new friend, Marisa Sierras, used to be involved with Marco. She tells them that Marco is dead in a car at the bottom of the lake. Kevin and Mariah go swimming in the lake, and find a car with no Marco. They tell this to Harding, who questions Marisa about Marco. In private, Harding asks Kevin to keep an eye on Marisa. Kevin sees Marisa meeting with Victor, and tells Harding. Harding calls Marisa to the station and asks her to give a description of Marco. He has wanted posters made, which Kevin takes out to show to Mariah, Noah, Abby, and Summer. Kevin brings up that he saw Marisa meeting with Victor in a park. Summer becomes appalled at the implication of Victor's association of Marco and storms off. Mariah asks Kevin if he believes that is really what Marco looks like, and Kevin says he doesn't.
Kevin starts to become suspicious of Harding babe he overheated him on the phone to someone. He finds a receit for camping equipment and questions the timing of it. Kevin tries to follow Harding, who catches him. Kevin manages to evade Harding's questions with Mariah's help. Kevin wants them to follow continue to trail Harding, but Mariah convinced Kevin to go tell Paul, and they convince him to investigate Harding. As Mariah starts to feel they can relax, Kevin pulls out his laptop and starts doing some more digging on Harding, much to Mariah's dismay.
After Harding was shot in the arm, Kevin believed he had been wrong about Harding, until Summer confirmed Harding was at the cabin the night of Austin's murder. Harding was killed during a standoff between Paul and Dylan, and Kevin still wondered how Victor was tied into the murders.
