"My mind is the key that will set me... free."
Luke was born with fetal alcohol syndrome to an alcoholic mother who died in childbirth. His father then gave him up for adoption because he didn't feel he was competent enough to raise a child. He was also abandoned by his foster mother (Sylvia Walker), who feared that he would harm her newborn child due to his mood swings. He grew up in the system, in and out of foster homes and institutions. He resented his abandonment and began his killing spree with the ultimate goal of killing his first foster mother.
Sleight Out of HandEdit
Luke comes to New York to perform in his famous show entitled "Death Becomes Me". When members of his crew start turning up dead, the CSI team is called to investigate. Stella is able to trace skin DNA off a magic wand found at the scene of assistant Austin Cannon's death to George Clark, who proves to be Luke's biological father. He is arrested while trying to drown his foster mother in a re-enactment of Harry Houdini's famous straight jacket escape trick.
Luke killed his victims by forcing them to perform his stunts or killing them in a similar fashion to his stunts. This included sawing a woman in half, burning a man to death and attempting to drown a woman.
