Elizabeth Timpe is a fictional character from the Saw franchise. She is one of the unseen characters in the series.



Not much is known about Elizabeth Timpe, though it can be assumed that she was either a patient or a worker of the Whitehurst Insane Asylum before it was closed. When she died, she was buried in the asylum's graveyard. Years later, her grave was used by John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer, for one of his games. This game focused on David Tapp, a discharged detective, who was obsessed with catching Jigsaw and therefore had to face a series of tests at Whitehurst. One part of his test required him to retrieve a key from a box, which was standing on the grave of his partner, Detective Steven Sing, who was burried in the same graveyard as Elizabeth. Additionally, every other grave, including hers, had a box standing on it, which were connected to nail bombs that would explode if Tapp opened the wrong box. Eventually, Tapp successfully managed to obtain the key and left the graveyard behind. (Saw: The Video Game)


  • While this isn't confirmed, it is likely that Elizabeth was a relative of Edward Timpe, a member of the Happy Thoughts Quartet, a boys' choir which used to perform music in the theater of Whitehurst.
