Ricky Copeland is a delivery boy who was accidentally killed by Magda Peterson.
A resident of Mason City, Iowa, Ricky became a target of psychic Magda Peterson's cry for help. Her powers instead caused him to experience her torment, which was violent whipping against the back.
Ricky was driven to chant words as he collapsed onto the ground, the music he was listening to left to play on its own as he died, his brain scrambled.
Thanks to his death, Sam and Dean Winchester were able to connect the dots between Ricky and the first victim, Olivia Sanchez, and found out that they both went along the same route, arriving at the house of the Petersons family.
