The eldest son of Monica Macklin, the stepson of Richard Macklin, and the older brother of Dorsey Corcoran. A ten-year-old boy who goes missing in Derry. In his suicide note, Richard claims to have seen Edward’s dead body. Edward is attacked and killed in Bassey Park, where he sometimes goes to get away from his stepfather. It transforms into a creature that is something between a fish and an amphibian with sharp claws, and digs into Edward’s carotid artery. Later, Mike Hanlon finds Eddie’s “two-blade pocket knife” in Bassey Park and sees blood near the bench where Eddie is killed. Eddie is killed on the night of June 19, 1958 and declared missing that year. Monica declares him legally dead in 1966.
