- There are several inconsistencies regarding Warren's date of birth.
- Including the proxy deaths, Warren has the joint second highest kill count, behind Toby Mills (13), above Cameron Campbell (8), Fraser Black (7), Lindsey Roscoe (7), Silas Blissett (6) and tieing with Breda McQueen on (9). Note: this is is only taking into account confirmed murder victims as characters such as Fraser, Breda and Silas were all killers long before they first arrived in the village and in Silas's case long after so they most likely have more murder victims that we don't know about.
