Ryan Paulson (died 2016) was a resident of Central City and Earthworm's first victim in an alternate timeline.


Alternate timeline


In 2016, Ryan Paulson was targeted and killed by Earthworm. Earthworm then ripped out Paulson's stomach before dumping his corpse at a recycling plant.

The CCPD investigated the scene after Paulson's body was discovered. When CSI Barry Allen examined his body, he initially concluded that Paulson died of natural causes due to having a recent hip replacement. Later though upon revisiting the case, Barry discovered Paulson's stomach was missing.[1] Barry would later link Paulson's death to Earthworm's killing spree.[2]
