The anticipation for the premiere of The Walking Dead Season 7 has intensified further after photos of the possible identity of Negan’s victim were leaked online.
AMC has been successful in keeping the big secret of who Negan killed since Season 6 was concluded. The network even threatened to sue a couple of online groups that are merely discussing fan theories and predictions for the upcoming season.
The Walking Dead Season 6 ended with a huge cliffhanger that showed Negan killing someone with a baseball bat he calls Lucille. Viewers offered several theories about Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) victim. Some said it could be Glenn if the TV adaptation will follow Robert Kirkman’s comic book. Others said AMC might depart from the comic version and Negan will kill a different character.

999 Gaming shared its prediction as to who Negan might have killed. The site thinks it will be Glenn (Steven Yeun) or Abraham (Michael Cudlitz). However, this remains a speculation. It has been reported that AMC filmed death scenes involving everyone in Negan’s death lineup and could use any of the character at the last moment. Rick, Glenn, Abraham, Maggie, Daryl, Michonne, Aaron, Eugene and Rosita were among those who are threatened to be killed.

Morgan earlier hinted that Negan’s victim was not Rick, Daryl or Glenn. During a press conference in July, the actor was asked who Negan brutally murdered. Morgan responded with a clue. “No one sitting here.” On stage with him were Yeun, Andrew Lincoln (Rick) and Norman Reedus (Daryl).
So who could it be?
