Your newspaper has been the primary source of information about my message, why I do what I do. But your motivations are selfish. You spread my message, but pervert it for your own personal glory. You twisted your words to implicate Detective Tapp, to make the public suspect him to be me.
John, Oswald's tape
Oswald is a newspaper writer who wrote an article about the death of one of Jigsaw's victims in the first Saw movie.
In the game, Oswald was the newspaper writer who coined the nickname "The Jigsaw Killer". He was placed in Whitehurst Asylum due to Jigsaw believing Oswald was perverting his message and also for blaming Tapp of being the real Jigsaw Killer. It was revealed in case files that Oswald was originally writing a novel about Jigsaw, but his notes were stolen by Pamela Jenkins in an effort to thwart him and write a book of her own. Tapp finds Oswald in a folding table trap, which he releases him from, only to be killed by metal slabs immediately after.
