"One of your cop buddies, askin' too many questions. I had to solder up his little mouth."
— Denton to Norman Jayden

Virgilio "Virgil" Zeke Denton is an ex-prisoner who runs a junkyard and auto-body shop in West Virginia, called Virgilio's Junkyard. Ironically due to his ethnicity, his junkyard used to be a hideout for the Skinz, a gang of white supremacist who worked for James Stalker. He is the main suspect in the theft of a Chevrolet Malibu '83: a car that Norman Jayden suspects Virgil stole, repainted blue, and sold to the Origami Killer.


When Jayden arrives, Zeke is midway through sorting a number of motor vehicles, but he stops to talk with the FBI investigator in his garage. While being questioned about the Chevrolet Malibu, Virgilio refuses to cooperate and denies any knowledge of the suspect. He claims he is not familiar with the car, and has a bad memory when it comes to names.

Jayden is sceptical of his claims. He decides to investigate the auto-body shop with ARI after Virgil leaves the garage to get back to work. He discovers orchid pollen in the air, possibly remnants of one of the Origami Killer's methods, tire tracks of the Chevrolet he was asking questions about, and spilled blue paint.


Jayden, through continual investigating, is able to find additional clues not related to the case. He discovers blood that covers the floor of the garage and leads to a nearby acid bath. Jayden looked in the acid bath, discovering a human skull. Later, Jayden finds himself being held at gunpoint by Virgilio. He confesses that the body is "one of your cop buddies asking too many questions" while frisking the investigator for any weapons. A short fight ensues.

However, due to Norman taking too many drugs earlier, Zeke knocks Jayden out. When he regains consciousness, he finds himself handcuffed to the steering wheel of his own car, which is about to be crushed in the junkyard. Jayden is successful in his escape, however, and he enters in another fight with Virgil. At some point during the fight, Denton's clothing was caught by the bulldozer and he was crushed and killed by his own equipment.


  • He is one of the few characters on the Wiki to use a Desert Eagle.
  • During the chapter "Crime Scene", Carter Blake orders a police officer to "go shut that damn thing off" (referring to the bulldozer being used nearby). It is speculated that the driver of it may be Zeke himself and that the officer sent to quiet him is the same officer later found in the acid bath.
  • Virgilio does not have a driver's licence or credit card, as seen in his personal information when Norman Jayden uses ARI to track him down.
